About Sampe


The Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering, SAMPE®, an international professional member society, provides information on new materials and processing technologies through chapter technical presentations, two journal publications, symposia and commercial expositions in which professionals can exchange ideas and air their views. As the only technical society encompassing all fields of endeavor in materials and processes, SAMPE provides a unique and valuable forum for scientists, engineers, designers and academicians.

Material and Process engineering is the technology by which materials are developed or selected and manufacturing processes chosen which will convert those materials into products which meet the design, performance, producability, quality, and cost effective criteria required. Fields of research and application include, but are not limited to:

• Composite materials

• Advanced matrix resin development

• Advanced reinforcement fiber development

• Nano materials

• Metal and composite adhesive bonding

• Ceramics, carbon-carbon and metal matrix composites

• Fire properties of composite materials

• Design and analysis of composite structures

• Platform design-manned and unmanned air vehicles

• Composite materials in ground transportation and advanced marine architecture

• Composite materials in oil exploitation and wind energy development

• Composite materials in recreational products

• Composite materials in infrastructure development

• Blast mitigation and homeland security

• Technical information exchange under ITAR guidelines
