August 14, 2013

The EPMA’s European Hard Materials Group will be holding the third in its series of SUMMEREV/WINTEREV meetings at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Barcelona, Spain, 17-18 October 2013.

The first in the series of meetings, focussing on fracture, fatigue and damage characterisation of Hard Materials, took place in 2010 at NPL, London, UK, and had an emphasis on experimental issues. The second meeting in 2011 at CEIT, San Sebastian, Spain, continued the assessment of experimental issues but also looked at the role that modelling can play. The third meeting, WINTEREV 13, will address the key issues tackled in the previous meetings but with an added emphasis on elevated temperature characterisation.

The proposed schedule includes the following presentations:

Aspects of mechanical tests at temperature    

D Mari, EPFL

Creep bend tests    

W Lengauer, T-U Wien

Creep tested microstructures    

TBC, Chalmers University

Fracture and fatigue micromechanisms at elevated temperature   

L Llanes, UPC

Small scale tests at elevated temperature   

B Roebuck, NPL

EPMA activities review and EHMG project comments   

O Coube, EPMA

Wear damage   

S Norgren, Sandvik

Wear damage: Near nano to Ultra coarse hardmetals   

I Konyashin, Element Six

3D metrology/ Tribology

M G Gee, NPL

Hardmetal tensile strength – specimen size effects   

T Klünsner, MCL Leoben

Small scale deformation, microbeams   

J-M Sanchez/Moreno, CEIT

A Mesoscopical FEM-model for fatigue and creep of hard metal   

C Broeckmann, Aachen

Debate on future activities   

L Prakash/S Moseley, EHMG
