Summary

 

Advanced Engineering Alloys - MATE97012

Aims

  • To address the properties, behaviour and processing of engineering alloys at the crystal level.
  • To examine state of the art industrially-relevant modelling methods at the continuum level for alloy processing and in-service performance
  • To examine polycrystal alloys at the crystal level and introduce crystal plasticity techniques for material behaviour (eg cold dwell fatigue) and processing (eg texture development.
  • To examine the fundamental quantitative factors that control stability, mechanical performance and damage accumulation under service conditions.
  • To ensure students can identify limiting material deformation mechanisms for specific applications of metals and appraise the integrity of such components

 

Role

Lecturer

Transformations of Materials (TM2) - PH9.TTM2

Role

Lecturer

Engineering Alloys - MATE97002

Aims

The aim of the course is to build an understanding of how to work with alloy systems; how metallurgists think about alloy development and select and process alloys for different uses. Case studies of incidents are used to explore how production and repair can impact upon life and lead to premature component failure. The alloys used as exemplar systems will depend on the interests of the teaching staff but historically aerospace materials have formed a significant focus.
