Title: 19th International Symposium on Zirconium in the Nuclear Industry
Dates: Monday May 20 2019 - Thursday May 23 2019
Location: The Midland; Manchester, UK
Event Name: B10.02 May 2019 Meeting
The 19th International Symposium on Zirconium in the Nuclear Industry, sponsored by ASTM Committee B10 on Reactive and Refractory Metals and Alloys. The symposium will be held May 20-23, 2019, at The Midland Hotel in Manchester, UK.
The purpose of the symposium is to provide a forum for exchanging new information on the fabrication, testing, development, and characterization of both traditional and new zirconium-based materials used in the nuclear industry, including materials performance during normal, transient, and accident conditions as well as materials behavior during intermediate and long-term storage conditions. Of particular interest are studies that focus on identifying and understanding the mechanisms and behaviors of zirconium-based materials.
Topics for this symposium include, but are not limited to, the following:
Both oral and poster presentations are planned. The John Schemel Award for the best paper of the symposium will be selected from the submitted papers. The best poster will also be recognized at the symposium.
The language of the symposium will be English.
