The purpose of this workshop is to present and discuss leading-edge developments in characterization and modelling of materials under extreme loading conditions.
The focus lies on characterization and modelling of materials under high thermal and mechanical loads including high numbers of loading cycles. The presented industrial application cases range from structural components (railway sector, ...) via industrial production (machining tools, ...) to aerospace applications (aero engines, ...).
