Physical Metallurgy Of Thermomechanical Treatme... VERIFIED

Metal Science and Heat Treatment discusses fundamental, practical issues of physical metallurgy, new achievements in heat treatment of alloys, surface engineering, and heat treatment equipment. Review papers are published as well as special issues on state-of the-art and future development of heat treatment, the history of physical metallurgy, and its outstanding researchers.

Originality of the developed approach lies in the combination of skills and complementary tools: experimental physical metallurgy, mechanical metallurgy, modeling and numerical simulation to address/handle cases, which are complex in nature, close to industrial operations. These works are realized through close collaboration between experimental and numerical analyses.The MSR team also manages and develops experimental methodologies: thermomechanical tests and heat treatment of metallic materials, metallography and electron microscopy.

Nanotech metallurgy (also called nanotechnology enabled metallurgy, or nanometallurgy) is an emerging interdisciplinary domain of materials science and engineering (especially metallurgy), manufacturing, and nanoscience and engineering to study how nanophases (both ex situ and in situ) can be applied to significantly improve the processing/manufacturing, micro/nano-structures, and physical/chemical/mechanical behaviors of metals and alloys. This definition was first proposed by Xiaochun Li [2] at the University of California, Los Angeles in 2018.

Nanotech metallurgy covers research areas such as nanophase effects on processing/manufacturing, materials properties (e.g. mechanical, physical and chemical properties), synthesis and production of nanophases (both in situ[7] and ex situ), interaction between nanophases and molten metal, solidification, and thermomechanical processing of metals containing nanophases.[8] 041b061a72
