The DCG will be hosting several research interns this summer. These students will design and complete a hands-on laboratory research project, under the guidance of graduate students in the group.

The interns include:

  • Kate Dillione from Brown University
  • Daniel Foley from the University of Maryland–College Park
  • Joseph Ludy from Rutgers University
  • Adam Falcone from Drexel University

Dr. Taheri and colleagues’ latest paper, titled “Phase transformation study in Nb-Mo microalloyed steels using dilatometry and EBSD quantification” has been published online in the journal Metallurgical and Materials Transactions A.

From the abstract: “A complete microstructural characterization and phase transformation analysis has been performed for several Nb and Nb-Mo microalloyed low-carbon steels using electron backscattered diffraction (EBSD) and dilatometry tests. Compression thermomechanical schedules were designed resulting in the undeformed and deformed austenite structures before final transformation. The effects of microalloying additions and accumulated deformation were analyzed after CCT diagram development and microstructural quantification. . . .This article shows the complex interactions between chemical composition, deformation, and the phases formed, as well as their effect on microstructural unit sizes and homogeneity.”
