Second International Conference
on Mechanical Spectroscopy, MS-II

Kraków, 3-8 December, 2000

AGH University of Science and Technology, Kraków, Poland
AGH University of Science and Technology, Kraków, Poland

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:

The Second International Conference on Mechanical Spectroscopy, MS-II is addressed to:

  • Materials scientists and physicists,
  • Physicists from academic and industrial laboratories,
  • PhD students in Materials Science and/or Physics,
  • Engineers and scientists working in Non-Destructive Testing,
  • Young engineers and research personnel.

Special consideration will be given to young scientists either working in or interested in mechanical spectroscopy (and/or traditional internal friction and ultrasonic attenuation), and to PhD students and representatives from industry. The MS-II will cover the following topics:

  • Introduction to Mechanical Spectroscopy: Fundamentals and Modern Experimental Techniques,
  • Analysis of Mechanical Loss Spectra,
  • Point Defect Relaxations,
  • Dislocation Dynamics and Dislocation Relaxation Phenomena,
  • Phase Transformations,
  • Amorphous Materials, Noncrystalline Materials, and Ceramic Materials,
  • Mechanical Spectroscopy, Internal Friction, Ultrasonics Attenuation in Solids, and Elastic Modulus: Status and Perspectives,
  • Applications of Mechanical Spectroscopy to Non-Destructive Testing,
  • Landmarks and Retrospective Remarks.

The programme should enable the participant to understand mechanical spectroscopy, its advantages, and applications in materials science and physics.

Enrollment is limited to 77 participants.
