2022 Alloy Design Workshop

December 2, 2022 8:50 am – 6:00 pm 6-104 (Chipman Room)

2022 Alloy Workshop Speaker line up

Hydrogen embrittlement is a challenge for many alloy classes, in applications from infrastructure to aerospace to nuclear power. Although observations of hydrogen effects in metals date back to the 1800s, the difficulties of monitoring interstitial hydrogen and elucidating the mechanisms behind embrittlement have left many unanswered questions. Today, as the energy landscape evolves toward hydrogen-related technologies, new applications are placing ever-harsher demands on materials. Alongside this, new high-performance alloys contain increasingly complex microstructures, presenting challenges and opportunities for fundamental understanding and practical solutions. In the 2022 Alloy Design Workshop, we will discuss recent progress in mechanistic understanding of hydrogen effects, and advances in microstructural design strategies to mitigate hydrogen embrittlement.

Complimentary lunch, coffee and refreshments will be provided during the workshop for all in-person attendees, together with opportunities for networking with all invited speakers and participants.
