NDC Tech Note: The International Conference on Shape Memory and Superelastic Technologies (SMST) May 18th – 22nd, 2015

The International Conference on Shape Memory and Superelastic Technologies will take place in Oxfordshire, United Kingdom from May 18th – 22nd. SMST brings together a diverse group of worldwide experts active in the field of shape memory and superelastic materials. There will be a full-day workshop on Monday, May 18th, followed by a four-day technical program that will cover a host of topics relevant to medical device manufacturers, including deep dives into failure mode analysis, Nitinol processing, corrosion, fatigue behavior and many others.

NDC’s technical team will contribute the following:

  • Plenary Session: History of our Industry (T. Duerig, K. Melton)
  • Plenary Session: Corrosion and Biological Response (C. Trepanier)
  • The Competition between R and M Martensites in Nitinol Medical Devices (T. Duerig, K. Bhattacharya)
  • Effect of Pre-Strain on Nitinol Fatigue Life (A. Shamimi, T. Duerig)
  • Sensitivity of Nitinol Fatigue Strain on Material Inputs in Finite Element Analysis (C. Bonsignore, K. Senthilnathan, T. Duerig, P. Saffari)
  • Effects of Room Temperature Aging on Hydrogen-Charged Nitinol (T. Duerig, D. Madamba)

NDC is looking forward to a highly productive and educational SMST, and we encourage your attendance! For more information about SMST 2015, please visit: www.asminternational.org/web/smst-2015-event/home.
