Dislocation Engineering: A Promising Alloy Design Strategy

Time: 15.00-16.00, April 19th, 2019, Friday

Venue: Meeting Room, 8th Floor, College of Material Science and Engineering

Speaker: Mingxin Huang, tenured vice-professor, College of Mechanical and Vehicle Engineering, University of Hong Kong


A new alloy design concept based on Dislocation Engineering is illustrated in the present work. This dislocation engineering concept has been successfully substantiated by the design and fabrication of a deformed and partitioned (D&P) steel with a yield strength of 2.2 GPa and an uniform elongation of 16% |1|. In the D&P steel, high dislocation density can not only increase strength but also improve ductility. Such Dislocation Engineering concept is further employed for other steels and Mg alloys, showing promising results. It opens a new window for alloy design.
