Nano-structured materials
The research interests in the field of Nanostructured Materials (Department of Nano Structured Materials and Department of Structural Ceramics) include basic research on microstructure-properties relationships with the aim to determine mechanisms of the corresponding processes and the development of new nanomaterials by means of severe plastic deformation. The activities involve the following directions:
a) fundamental research of the relationships between the processing, microstructure and mechanical properties of the bulk nanocrystalline materials designed for high temperature applications; microstructure simulation and analysis of physical and mechanical properties of metallic nanocomposites; development of complex microstructural models for the verification of the behavior of real materials; creep behavior of metallic composites, analysis of the role of interphase boundaries and development of strain and fracture models;
b) synthesis of nanocrystalline metal matrix materials via mechano-chemical methods.
