On February 16-19, 2014 Pavel Panin and Evgeny Alekseev, specialists of the All-Russian scientific-research institute of aviation materials (VIAM) took part in ISGTA-2014 (International Symposium on Gamma TiAl Alloys), which was held in San Diego (USA) within the annual session of TMS.
Within the symposium, representatives of VIAM made two reports – «Evolution of structure of semiproducts made of heat resistant intermetallic alloys based on titanium aluminides in the course of deformation processing» and «On the problem of low-temperature ductility improvement in Ti-Al and Ti–Al–Nb based alloys». The reports caused keen interest and active discussion among attendees. In particular, Yuyong Chen, professor of Harbin institute of technology (China) noted practical importance and high level of the researches conducted at VIAM.
Let us note that TMS 2014 exhibition devoted to hi-tech developments in the field of production and research equipment for high-tech industry branches was held within the TMS annual meeting. JMatPro (Sente Software), FLSmidth, Hysitron, Melting solutions, NIST, IPS Ceramics and many other companies presented their achievements.
