Conference secretariat




Topics :

The conference topics will include:

  1.      Development of experimental creep techniques and setups,
  2.      Microstructural characterisation of crept material
  3.      Simulation and modelling at different scales (continuum mechanics, dislocation dynamics, phase transformations, atomistic interactions),
  4.      Creep behaviour and deformation mechanisms,
  5.     Long term creep,
  6.      Creep under special conditions (oxidation, irradiation, hydrogen, multiaxial loading…),
  7.      Damage and fracture, creep – fatigue interactions.

It will concern a large range of materials:

1. Metals and alloys : steels and iron based alloys, Ni and Co based superalloys, Intermetallics and light alloys (Ti, Zr, Al …)
2. Ultra high temperature materials : silicides, ceramics,
3. Metal Matrix and Ceramic Matrix Composites
4. Rocks, salts, geophysical matérials
