INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON
NEW APPROACHES TO HI-TECH MATERIALS 97

Nondestructive Testing and Computer Simulations in Materials Science and Engineering

9 - 12 June 1997, St.Petersburg, Russia



ORGANISED BY

OBJECTIVES

The quest for improved materials has recently become easier, this larger due to progress in two distinct areas: nondestructive testing (NDT) and computer simulations (CSs). Today, due to the great improvements in computer technology, experimental and computational methods, it is possible to solve a variety of complex problems accurately and efficiently. The Workshop will discuss papers on any of the topics listed or others related to the theme of the Meeting, with particular emphasis on the application of advanced theories, experimental techniques and computational methods.
