First Year Assessment of Venkatesh Sivagnana, entitle “New high entropy alloy formulations developed using advanced powder metallurgy routes for high temperature applications” – 1st of October, 2021.

Abstract: High entropy alloys (HEAs) have recently garnered significant research attention due to the variety of properties they offer, including high strength, fracture resistance, thermal stability, wear resistance, corrosion resistance and irradiation resistance. When it comes to processing of HEAs,

3D printing of metamaterials for structural applications

Additive manufacturing, or 3D metal printing, allows to build ultralight and resistant structures with geometries that are impossible to achieve using conventional machining and processing techniques, including complex structures named “lattice”. These are three-dimensional constructions, topologically ordered, formed by the

Seminar of Prof. Dan Mordehai from Technion (Faculty of Mechanical Engineering) in Israel, entitle “Microstructure-based Plasticity of Metals – Going from the Atomic to the Continuum Scale” – 22nd of April, at 12:00 pm in the Auditorium

Abstract: Microstructural defects on the atomic level are known to be responsible to the macroscopic deformation of metals. Despite, the study of microstructure-based plasticity of metals is still a great challenge owing to the multiphysics and multiscale nature of plasticity.

First Year Assessment of Andres Sierra, entitle “Microstructural design in novel stainless steels via quenching and partitioning to improve their mechanical properties” – 12 of March, 2021.

Abstract: The quenching and partitioning (Q&P) process is a relatively new heat treatment (2003) aimed at the creation of a multi-phase microstructure of tempered martensite and stabilized retained austenite. This microstructure enhances the mechanical properties of the steel, achieving an
