Materials Engineering Seminar
Dr. Dipankar Banerjee, of the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore, India, is the guest speaker for a special talk in the Materials Engineering Department. His talk is "Transformation Paths to Titanium Martensite and the Properties of Multifunctional Beta Titanium Alloys."
11 a.m. in Speare 14
Banerjee will describe the alternative transformation pathways to martensite in titanium alloys based on the Burgers transformation. He will discuss the features of nanoscale domains of martensite that can be realized in contrast to more conventional macroscopic martensite plates. He will then show how stress or temperature-induced continuous transformations related to the formation of nano-martensite domains can result in unique combination of properties in the B-titanium alloys in which such transformation microstructures can be engineered.
