are inviting you to 

13th International Scientific Conference

Structural Materials 2021

Bratislava, October 26, 2021

The Conference SM-2021 follows up on previous biennial conferences organized by Slovak Metal Science Society, which took place from 1997 in Bratislava, Košice, Trnava and Žilina. The main goal is the exchange of the latest knowledge, especially in the field of structural engineering materials. The conference also aims to create conditions for deepening existing and establishing new personal and professional contacts. The conference is focused on the following areas:

  • structural materials (steels, cast irons, non-ferrous metal alloys, ceramics, polymers, composites, powder metallurgy) - structure, properties, applications;
  • modification of metallic material properties (thermal and thermochemical treatment, surface treatment, coating, etc.);
  • structural analysis, mechanical and physical properties;
  • production, recycling, sustainability, industrial applications, etc.

Language: English
