Understanding deformation and failure mechanisms via multimodal and multiscale electron microscopy

In this webinar Josh Kacher, from Georgia Tech, discussed the work his group is doing in applying advanced multiscale and multimodal electron-microscopy based characterization techniques to understand mechanical deformation and failure processes. He focused his results on two materials applications: understanding the influence of second phase particles in ductile failure of Al alloys and determining the role of processing conditions in strain localization during cyclic loading of additive manufactured alloys.
