“Materials for extreme environments”, the theme of the „ExtreMat“ Integrated European Project, will be a major topic at the “EUROMAT-Congress”, which is the biannual European congress on advanced materials and processes to be held in Prague, 5 to 8 September 2005.
Under the topic “Materials for extreme environments” symposia and sessions will be held covering the aspects of extreme operation conditions for materials such as very high temperatures and heat fluxes, physico-chemically aggressive environment causing e.g. oxidation and erosion, and severe irradiation conditions. More than 120 papers will be dedicated to this topic. The presentations will cover the behaviour of existing as well as the development of new materials.
The symposia are grouped along specific applications:
- fusion energy
- advanced fission
- space applications
- turbines for energy conversion
Several partners of the European Project ExtreMat, the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics (Germany), the Nuclear Research and Consultancy Group NRG (Netherlands), the Research Centre Jülich (Germany), and the Polytechnical University of Torino, Italy, have organised this topic as well as the topical symposia.
The conference will be a major forum for the scientific exchange of the 37 project partners with other scientists in this field of research.
