Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: Representing most but not all of the presentations, the 137 papers cover polymer matrix composites; metal matrix composites and interpenetrating materials; ceramic matrix composites; hybrid structures and laminates; structural health monitoring; coatings; modeling and simulation; manufacturing technology and applications of components and products; testing and characterization; cemented carbides, cermets, wear, and abrasion materials; bio-composites; and recycling and sustainability in building materials. Among specific topics are synthesizing copper/silicon-carbine composites in a thermodynamic disequilibrium, the adhesive bonding of oxide ceramics for complex ceramic parts in high temperature furnaces, mechanical requirements of tailored joining technologies for spring elements in multi-material design, the surface structuring of sheet moulding compounds for process reliable coating, applying polymer plaster composites in additive manufacturing of high-strength components, analyzing the failure of high-strength fiber ropes, and controlling the cobalt surface layer formation on cemented carbides.
