Research interests

  • Physical metallurgy of high performance alloys
  • Zirconium alloys for nuclear application - aspects of processing and performance - understanding the development of texture, corrosion mechanisms, hydrides and irradiation growth and creep
  • Titanium alloys - phase transformation, deformation mechanisms, texture and fatigue
  • Nickel base superalloys - deformation mechanisms and fatigue
  • Residual stress and metallurgical characterisation of friction welded aeroengine materials
  • Process modelling of inertia friction welding
  • Using advanced neutron difrraction and synchrotron radiation for materials engineering and physical metallurgy
  • 3D imaging by x-ray tomography and advanced electron microscopy
