"The Promise and Perils of Extreme Grain Refinement to Produce Superior Structural Materials"
Date and Time: Monday, March 13, 12:30 to 1:30 p.m.
The ability to produce metals with very small grain sizes has led to materials with both the positive aspect of high strength and a number of negative attributes, especially brittle behavior.
Attendees of this lecture are updated on the recent developments in the study of the mechanical properties of nanocrystalline metals and alloys, including attempts to make them into useful materials. Julia Weertman’s research is sponsored by the Department of Energy Grant DE-FG02-02ER.
Julia R. Weertman is the Walter P. Murphy Professor Emerita in Service at Northwestern University.
At Northwestern for nearly 20 years, she holds three patents and is a member of the NRC National Materials Advisory Board, the scientific advisory committees for the Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies and the Center for Nanophase Materials Science, and the Board of Review Editors, Science.
