Semi-Solid Processing of Alloys and Composites XIV
The 14th S2P International Conference (October 23 – 27, 2016, Salt Lake City, USA) was dedicated to the science and processing technologies of the semi-solid metal alloys and composites. Since the discovery of the specific flow behavior of metals in semi-solid state during the early seventies, this fascinating technology has experienced a dynamic and turbulent development history which has led to a whole family of new production processes, new equipments and industrial applications for goals of full use of the technical and economic potential of the flow behaviour, improved materials and process modelling as well as control of processes. All S2P International Conferences have contributed to achieve this goal by providing a forum for scientists to share the common knowledge and to develop a common sense on fundamental topics and industrial requirements.
