Spring 2021 Seminar Series: Amy Clarke
Colorado School of Mines
Host: Tim Weihs
Structure, processing, property, and performance relationships are the cornerstone of materials science and engineering. Yet, we are often left to infer what critical microstructural characteristic(s) and/or defect(s) in metallic alloys result in performance degradation and the failure of parts. Today, state-of-the-art characterization techniques available in the laboratory and at national user facilities are enabling unprecedented, real-time studies of metallic alloys during processing, deformation, and simulated service and manufacturing. The use of x-rays, protons, and electrons to study multiscale solidification dynamics in metallic alloys relevant to processes like casting and additive manufacturing are highlighted. Experimental results such as these, along with complementary ex-situ characterization, are used to inform, develop, and validate computational models. The new knowledge gained by in-situ/ex-situ characterization will aid in the prediction and control of metallic alloy microstructures and properties by design with advanced manufacturing.
