We test and break things.

Skills in a range of mechanical test techniques:

  • Digital Image Correlation
  • Simulated TMP tests
  • Creep
  • Fracture toughness
  • Tensile
  • Fatigue
  • Corrosion

We develop computer programs for materials engineers


Currently in development:

  • dbsd: aka debs is a program to analyse steel EBSD data
  • diPPA: a program to analyse diffraction peak profile analysis methods
  • dice: a program to analyse digital image correlation data

We model material properties-

  • Thermomechanical processing (DEFORM)
  • Strengthening mechanisms (work-hardening and dislocation models)
  • Polycrystal plasticity models (CPFEM, VPSC, Taylor, Schmid)

We are experts in EBSD, x-ray diffraction, TEM, SANS, APT and other characterisation techniques
