13th World Conference on Titanium

Dr Martin Jackson opening Ti-2015 in San Diego
Dr Martin Jackson, academic partner of the DARE project, gave the opening talk at the recently held Ti-2015: The 13th World Conference on Titanium in San Diego.  Dr Jackson will be  leading the Project’s research into High Strength Titanium Alloys; hear more about this research and other planned  research within the Project at our Inaugural Meeting on 3 September 2015.  You can register for the event here (link below)

Use of 3-D Dislocation Dynamics and Large Scale Atomistic Simulations in Understanding the Mechanical Behavior Of Metallic Systems

A talk by Dr Satish Rao of the Institute of Mechanical Engineering, EPFL, Lausanne

Thomas Young Centre at 5pm on Thursday 26th March in room G01 of the Royal School of Mines, Imperial College London.

Satish Rao is a pioneer in the modelling of dislocations at atomistic and mesoscopic scales and was the first to implement the Flex II boundary conditions in a density functional calculation of the core structure of a bcc screw dislocation. Ingo Steinbach is a world leading expert and developer of phase field models. The phase field is a powerful method for the prediction of microstructural evolution. Both these techniques are likely to prove pivotal in the DARE approach to alloy design.

DARE to be different…

Alloy atom and dislocation

Companies that manufacture and process metals to form components are faced with a growing problem of securing supply chains linked to particular materials. The risks these companies face include increased competition from emerging economies due to the globalisation of manufacturing, political risks (especially when reserves of a particular resource are concentrated in one country) and price instability.

The DARE project has been funded by the UK’s Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council to look at alloy formulation in conjunction with industry. DARE looks to develop improved alloys, and where possible reduce their dependence on sensitive resources.

The expected outcomes of the project are improved technological competitiveness of key UK metal industries, with reduced political and price sensitivity of their products in the global market place.
