Hatfield Memorial Lecture – Moving Phase Boundaries as a Means to Transport Solute Atoms in Steels, Professor Sybrand van der Zwaag, Delft University of Technology

7 December 2021, 6.45pm, The Octagon Centre, Sheffield

Register to attend. Please note this event is taking place in-person

For solid state metallurgists the austenite-ferrite phase transformation in steels remains the most challenging and inspiring topic in the field.  As it is our principal tool to create desired microstructures and properties, it has been widely studied but it is not simple to unravel the separate contributions of nucleation, intrinsic interface mobilities, solute trapping, long range element partitioning and maybe the interfacial structure itself. This talk will show the recent progress in our understanding of interface motion in automotive steels and demonstrate how academic research may even lead to new processing routes.  As is appropriate for the Hatfield lecture, the element Manganese will feature prominently.
