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.
