CPD course: Residual Stresses in Thermal Spray Coatings (RSTSC)

This Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and training course is approved by The Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3). This course provides an understanding of the residual stresses in thermal spray coatings, and broad coverage of general residual stress testing of thermal spray coatings. This course is delivered in partnership with Heriot-Watt University.

Measurement of residual stress in thermal spray coatings plays an important part in the evaluation of coating quality.

This course will provide an insight into recent advances in and an understanding of the residual stresses in thermal spray coatings. Together with broad coverage of residual stress measurement, the course will include various thermal spray methods, the origin of residual stresses and material and thermal spray process parameters and methods to measure residual stresses in thermal spray coatings.

Examining residual stress observations, the course will help you to understand contributing factors such as powder materials, substrate, heat & thermodynamics, elastic/plastic deformation properties, phase transformations, stress gradients, different methods to measure residual stresses and finally management of residual stresses in thermally sprayed components.

29th Annual meeting of the European Society for Biomaterials (ESB)

A warm welcome to the 29th Annual Meeting of the European Society for Biomaterials that will take place on September 9–13, 2018 in Maastricht, the Netherlands! The theme of this year’s conference is “Materials for Life,” which expresses the challenge the field of biomaterials is currently facing: to provide effective and affordable biomaterials-based methods to repair and regenerate damaged and diseased tissues and organs.

This challenge can only be overcome by converging breakthrough developments from the fields of chemistry, physics, materials science, biology and engineering to address real clinical needs, while also considering the translational pathway from bench to bedside.


Recent Appointees in Materials Science (RAMS 2018)

Recent Appointees in Materials Science (RAMS) is the only UK national conference specifically aimed at recent appointees (lecturers, research fellows, postdocs and industrial researchers) in Materials Science.

RAMS 2018 will incorporate symposia covering a broad range of subjects in Materials Science (from inorganic materials and functional nanomaterials, to biological, soft matter and electronic materials), to help recent appointees in academia and industry to build their national collaborative networks, exchange experiences and benefit from peer support.

The conference will also incorporate plenary lectures from leading UK materials scientists as well as sessions on essential training and development and information on funding opportunities through the RAMS network, targeted to help materials scientists at the start of their careers. Our aim is to support those at the beginning of their career by providing a forum for networking. Balancing teaching and administration with trying to establish a research group can be a daunting task; RAMS seeks to provide a medium where new appointees can share their experiences and learn from their peers. So if you are a new research fellow, lecturer or a postdoc looking to have a career in any area of materials science, you may benefit from being part of the RAMS community.
