Dislocations and high rate properties of metals
9 a.m. July 20 2018
The Maxwell Centre, Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge CB3 0HE
The purpose of this one-day symposium is the consideration of a variety of topics on the subject of the dynamic properties of metals – such as dislocation mechanics, experimental methods at a variety of loading rates (from split Hopkinson pressure bars to shock loading), ballistic impact on armour, and machining.
The emphasis of the meeting will be the discussion of the presentations and the links between them. It is hoped that there will be a relaxed atmosphere in which all participants will feel free to contribute.
We are grateful to the Institute of Physics’ Shock Waves and Extreme Conditions (SWEC) Group for their financial support for this meeting.
There will be a small charge of £5 to cover a sandwich lunch and coffee and tea. For those who can stay, we plan to go out to dinner in a local restaurant in the evening. The dinner would be largely at your own expense, but depending on the finances of the rest of the meeting, it may be possible to subsidise the price.
