Performance engineering industries face the challenges of ensuring product capability and reliability under a range of aggressive conditions involving high temperature, pressure, friction, wear, corrosion, stress and impact.

To address these challenges a one-day workshop entitled “Particulate Materials for Energy Applications” will take place on Wednesday, 15 May 2013 at the Riverside Conference Centre, Derby, UK.

Organised by the Particulate Engineering Committee of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3) and co-sponsored by the Materials Knowledge Transfer Network, the event will showcase the ability of the particulate material industry to provide elegant and practical solutions for the needs of a wide range of energy related applications. 

The workshop will bring together a range of world leading experts from industry and academia, who will deliver a series of presentations followed by question and answer sessions, looking at: 

  • The impact of production process on materials properties
  • The specification and characterisation of particulate materials
  • Future Developments in the sector, e.g. NDT and Monitoring strategies
  • The experience of End Users from different energy applications  

The organisers state that this is an excellent opportunity for engineers, material scientists and designers in the power generation, power storage and offshore industries to increase their awareness of the solutions provided by the particulate materials industry.

In particular, users of ceramics, hard materials, metals and composites and of surface engineering solutions based on particulate feedstocks will find this workshop of benefit.
