Date: Thu, Sep 3 2020 - Fri, Sep 3 2021

Location: Darmstadt University of Technology, Germany

Speakers: Peicheng ZHU

To describe phase transitions in
? Steel: Carbon-Iron alloy, cf. Hornbogen &Warlimont: Metallkunde
? Sintering: widely used to make objects from powder, by heating
to a temperature (below its melting-point) for both metallic and
non-metallic materials
? Shape memory alloys: Smart materials, remembering its original
shape, cf. Bhattacharya (2003)
surgical tool (bone plates), muscle wires in robot, aircraft
maneuverability, etc.
