The 57 Annual Conference of Metallurgists (COM2018) will take place at the Columbus Convention Center; host hotel is Hyatt Regency Columbus.
Why join MS&T? The MS&T technical program is unmatched, addressing structure, properties, processing, and performance across the materials community. MS&T brings together scientists, engineers, students, suppliers, and business leaders to discuss current research and technical applications, and to shape the future of materials science and technology. In addition, the exhibition showcases a wide variety of equipment and services to the automotive, aerospace, instrumentation, medical, oilfield, and energy industries.
COM co-organized symposia
- Environmental Degradation and Embrittlement of Structural Metals
- From Diversity to Inclusion
- Joining of Advanced and Specialty Materials (JASM XX)
- Light Metal Technology – Applications for the Transportation Industry
- Light Metals – Applications and Fitness-for-Service Characterization
- Multifunctional Ceramic- and Metal-matrix Composites: Processing, Microstructure, Properties and Performance

COM ACTIVITIES AT MS&T18
The technical program of COM including short courses and global social activities will be included in the MS&T18 programming and website.
COM 2018 specific sponsored Activities will include:
Titanium & Titanium Alloys Short Course
AGM 2018 & MetSoc Awards Banquet 2018
Canada Student-Industry Mixer
The Fathi Habashi Lecturer (Historical Metallurgy Luncheon)
Saturday-Sunday October 13-14- Titanium & Titanium Alloys Short course
Amongst all metallic materials, titanium and its alloys stand out primarily to their high specific fatigue strength, excellent corrosion resistance and biocompatibility. This explains their successful application in aerospace industry, plant engineering and the medical sector. Lately, additional fields of application like ground transportation, architecture, sports and leisure come up. Nevertheless, the titanium community still is relatively small and only few widespread alloys exist. Therefore, the short course “Titanium and Titanium Alloys” aims at an introduction to or/and a better understanding of titanium based materials to allow scientists and engineers the development and application of tailored titanium alloys.
PRESENTER: Carsten Siemers, head of Titanium Research Group at Institute for Materials of TU Braunschweig

Metals and Alloys in Commercial Aircraft
K. Sharvan Kumar

Modern-day, self-propelled, heavier -than-air flight traces its roots back to 1903 when the Wright brothers (from Dayton, OH) remained in air for 12 seconds in Kittyhawk, NC. Just 30 years later, Boeing introduced the 247, a 10-passenger, all-metal twin-engine aircraft with a retractable landing gear; soon thereafter, the era of jet engines was ushered in; 60 years later, Boeing introduced the 777, the biggest twin-engine jet ever to fly and the first aircraft to be produced using computer-aided design and engineering! This dramatic advance in passenger flight is filled with, inventions, innovative designs, materials and technology advancements and accidents and lessons learned. Driven by societal needs, economy, government regulations and more, alloy and components design, process development, property assessment and life prediction have all been central to these advances. Here, I will follow this fascinating thread by focusing on materials development for aircraft fuselage and aircraft engine over time.
