Workshop on high entropy alloys for nuclear applications

The OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) Expert Group on Innovative Structural Materials organises a Workshop on high entropy alloys for nuclear applications. The workshop will be held in Madrid, Spain from 19th to 21st of October 2021, hosted by CIEMAT as a hybrid remote/in person meeting.
 
The purpose of this workshop is to share information on the status of the R&D on high entropy alloys (HEA) with focus on nuclear applications. The workshop will cover modelling, experimental investigation, fabrication/manufacturing of HEA. A description of the workshop and the draft agenda are attached herein.
 
When: Tuesday 19-10-2021 12:00 - Thursday 21-10-2021 16:00
Where: CIEMAT, Madrid, Spain 
Two sessions are organised that will only include plenary lectures. A panel discussion on HEA for nuclear systems will close the meeting.
 
1.    Overview on R&D initiatives
a.       USA
b.       Europe
c.       China
 
2.    Technical Session
a.       Numerical design, Calphad computation
b.       Fabrication/manufacturing
c.       Phase stability, microstructural characterisation, mechanical testing
d.       Compatibility with corrosive environment
e.       Irradiation resistance (including modelling and simulation of the behaviour under irradiation)
 
3.    Panel discussion: HEA for nuclear systems
 
More information, as well as the registration form, can be found at the link below. No registration fee will be charged. Please note that the deadline for registration is September 15th, 2021.
