HTSM 2020

Conference on
Feb 3-5, 2020
Faculty Hall, IISc.

The 3-day conference aims to bring together academics, researchers, and students from universities, R&D labs and the industry to discuss research activities on all aspects of the mechanical response of high temperature structural materials and components. The overarching goal is to disseminate knowledge, to identify current research activities and researchers in India working on these areas, and to enable networking and knowledge sharing. The conference themes include:

  • Fundamental topics in high temperature creep, fatigue, creep-fatigue interactions, impact damage, erosion, etc.
  • Lifetime assessment, damage modeling, structural integrity and component design
  • Multiscale modeling of high temperature phenomena in materials and components
  • Alloy development, microstructure-property correlations, etc.
  • Novel high temperature testing methodologies and diagnostics

The meeting will consist of 10-12 sessions with invited and contributed oral presentations. The following is a partial list of confirmed invited speakers:

  • Dr. S. Tarafder (NML)
  • Dr. S.V. Ramanamurthy (GTRE)
  • Prof. Rajesh Korla (IIT, Hyderabad)
  • Dr. Vikas Kumar Saxena (DMRL)
  • Prof. Vikram Jayaram (IISc)
  • Dr. Swati Biswas (GTRE)
  • Prof. Atul H. Chokshi (IISc)
  • Dr. B.V.A Patnaik (GTRE)
