Belgium: Participation of VIAM in the conference on materials.
The representative of All-Russian scientific-research institute of aviation materials (VIAM) Ekaterina F. Volkova, Doctor of Technical Sciences took part in «The 2014 International Conference on High Performance and Optimum Design of Structures and Materials» which was held in Ostende (Belgium), June 9-11, 2014.
Within the frames of the conference she made the report «Evolution of the structure and conversion of mechanical properties of magnesium alloy MA14 (ZK60 A) affected by pressing and heat treatment».
Ekaterina Volkova mentioned that «during the event the problems of development of materials science of light alloys were discussed with the representatives of Wessex Institute of Technology, Brussels University and Czech Technical University». According to her, the conference proved the growing interest to magnesium alloys as the most light structural material for those branches of modern industries where a weight reduction of parts is of particular importance.
Special attention was focused on smart materials and their structures and using of computation modeling, control and management.
Ekaterina Volkova`s report was published in collected papers of the conference.
