Emeritus College Online Seminar with Dr. Fadi Abdeljawad

January 26 (Tuesday) 10:00am-11:30am, Online Seminar: Nano Tweezers: Manipulating Materials One Crystal at a Time with Dr. Fadi Abdeljawad, Assistant Professor, Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering: The growing technological demands of the 21st century and the never-ending quest for engineering devices with increased functionalities underpin the need to fabricate materials by means of controlled manipulation of their microstructure. In nearly all engineering materials, the microstructure is comprised of differently orientated crystalline grains that are connected at internal interfaces. The response of many engineering materials to external fields, such as mechanical, thermal, and radiation is greatly influenced by grain size and shape. As a result, many recent synthesis and processing techniques (e.g., additive manufacturing) aim to design materials by controlling their grain structures at the nanoscale. In this presentation, I will discuss recent progress from my research group that deals with the development of atomistic and mesoscale models to predict the formation and evolution of materials microstructures during processing or under service conditions. I will highlight our recent work on alloying in nano-metals and modeling efforts of near-atomic scale processes that emerge during additive manufacturing, i.e., 3D printing.
