Micro-indentation testing has shown great promise in extracting local mechanical properties of ductile metal materials. Although the relevant contact physics has been well revealed since the 19th century, interpreting the indentation data still poses many challenges at the application level. Regarding one of the mainstream methodologies for...

Recycled concrete aggregates (RCA) have been recognized as a sustainable solution to satisfy the demand and address the environmental impacts of the concrete industry. However, construction engineers and contractors still have reservations about RCA due to their heterogeneous origin and lower quality compared to natural aggregates. It is...

Delamination is a significant failure mode that has been the subject of extensive research in laminated structures. The interface in assembly structures often represents the susceptibly weak link and necessitates careful consideration to guarantee structural stability. It is of utmost significance to understand the behaviour of the delamination...

Hydrogen as an alternative energy source has risen in popularity due to increased environmental awareness. Existing natural gas infrastructure is considered as a means to transport hydrogen, due to practicality and financial aspects. However, hydrogen can deteriorate the fatigue behaviour and thus induce premature failure. Since fatigue is a...

In recent decades, high strength steels in thick sections have been increasingly used in offshore structures where they are subjected to harsh service conditions such as freezing temperatures and high static/dynamic loading. At these conditions they are susceptible to a transition from ductile failure to a dangerous brittle (cleavage)...

Many manufacturing industries have been impacted by the innovation of additive manufacturing (AM), and biomaterials manufacturing is no exception. One group of biomaterials impacted by the innovation of 3D printing are degradable biomaterials. Degradable biomaterials could eliminate the need for surgery to remove the implant. 3D printed porous...

Nitinol shape memory alloys (SMAs) have a unique combination of shape memory capability, making it an attractive material for various engineering and biomedical applications. Additive manufacturing (AM) by laser powder bed fusion (L-PBF) allows to produce Nitinol net shape parts, which broadens its applications. Due to the high heating and...

Bainitic steels are the type of steels which are widely in use, especially in automotive industries, for its good mechanical behavior, i.e., with coexistence of strength, ductility and fatigue resistance. A better understanding on the mechanism and transformation kinetics of bainite are necessary in order to improve the performance of the...

Additive Manufacturing (AM), commonly known as 3D printing, exemplifies the recently emerging processing methodologies that aim to substitute the conventional routes, such as to produce parts with complex geometries and eliminate expensive tooling. AM also allows high degree of freedom and rapid prototyping for functional part optimization. This...

The most commonly used material in the automotive industry is steel. Steel used in making Body-In-White (BIW) for cars are broadly classified as Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS). These AHSS are produced by a well-defined alloying and specific annealing procedure. However, external oxidation of the constituent alloying elements from the steel...

Laser surface treatments offer interesting prospects for the creation of architectured microstructures formed by distinct phases in metastable austenitic steels. In the present study, a laser-based localised heat treatment was developed to locally create an austenitic region in a quenched Fe25Ni0.2C martensitic microstructure. The highly...
