Research

Ongoing Research Projects:

1. Processing, microstructure characterization and mechanical properties of ultrafine grained (UFG) and nanocrystalline (NC) materials;

 

2. Far-from equilibrium processing to improve the ductility of some ultralight metals and alloys.

 

3. Dynamic behavior of BCC refractory metals with UFG/NC microstructures.

 

 

Funding Sources:

1. United States Army Research Laboratory: $140,000.

 

2. NC Spacegrant Consortium: $20,000.

 

3. United States Army Research Office: $180,000 for high-speed photographing system.
