The Metallurgical Clock: Why timescales are critical in load regimes and failure modes for nuclear reactors, jet engines and violins
East Midlands Materials Society Lecture
Dr Dave Rugg - Rolls-Royce
Despite the complexity of deformation and failure processes in metals, the research community is beginning to make significant progress via advanced experimentation and modelling. One of the most challenging aspects of this area is understanding the role of time, with much of the historical work being limited to post-mortem examination and/or interference from mechanical response.
This talk will detail some of the significant generic knowledge gaps and describe the innovative research aim at addressing. In addition (and probably incorrect!) view of what could be possible in the next decade will be outlined.
