Measurement of fracture toughness by nanoindentation methods: recent advances and future challenges

The analysis of deformation and failure mechanisms in small-scale devices and thin films is a critical issue, not yet solved. In this presentation, we describe recent advances and developments for the measurement of fracture toughness at small scales by the use of nanoindentation-based methods ... [more]

Atomistic Studies on Dislocation – Interface Interactions:

Interfaces play a decisive role in the deformation of any polycrystalline metal or precipitate-strengthened alloy. Perhaps best known is the role of grain boundaries (GBs) as obstacle to dislocation motion as evidenced by the Hall-Petch strengthening. However, GBs can also serve as initiation sites ... [more]

Understanding fatigue crack initiation in Ni superalloys: a study with HR-EBSD, HR-DIC and CP-FEA

The lifetime of aerospace engineering components is often limited by fatigue. Traditional management strategies presuppose an existing defect length and estimate time to failure through short crack growth and propagation methods, using empirical approaches such as fitting of a Paris’ law. New ... [more]

Design and characterization of novel TiAl alloys and metal-diamond composites for beam-based additive manufacturing

  • Date: Nov 10, 2015
  • Time: 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM (Local Time Germany)
  • Speaker: Dr. Christian Leinenbach
  • Laboratory for Joining Technologies and Corrosion EMPA - Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology, Dübendorf, Switzerland
  • Room: Seminar Room 1
  • Host: Prof. Dierk Raabe
Metal additive manufacturing (AM) techniques are powder-based, layer by layer methods which can directly build 3D structures onto substrates with complex geometries. They offer a unique ability to dynamically mix materials during the deposition process and produce functionally graded structures, new ... [more]
