General Profile:

The interdisciplinary forum brings together:

The attendees share their experience in the related fields aiming to work out the concepts and computational schemes which would help develop sufficiently adequate and accurate macroscopic models for microwave sintering.

Seminar Goals:

The Seminar invites contributions related to:

  1. modern advances in experimental development of the technology of microwave sintering - control over the process; measurable and non-measurable physical characteristics; design of associated microwave systems, etc.;
  2. state-of-the-art techniques of multiphysics simulation of microwave sintering - compatibility and applicability of numerical models representing electromagnetic, thermal, and structural processes; challenges in the related numerical mathematics and implementation of the algorithms; efficient use of computational resources (hardware and software), etc.;
  3. determination of effective media parameters of processed particulate materials - measurement techniques; non-destructive evaluation and microwave imaging;
  4. interaction of microwaves with dielectric and metallic powders: physics and mathematics.
