Metallic Materials

The course encompasses all aspects of metals alloys and composites, including their design, processing, forming, joining and performance; the research extends from fundamental science, and the 'blue skies' development of novel technologies and techniques, to the very applied, with the aim of improving understanding of the basic governing principles, process simulation and physical modelling.
