Prof. Weihs gave an invited talk titled Observing and Characterizing the Deformation of Mg and its Alloys at High Strain Rates at the Mg Workshop, in Baltimore, Maryland.
PreviousThe Weihs lab travelled to Argonne National Laboratory for three days of experiments in combusion. In-situ x-ray phase contrast images were taken on combusting Al:Zr reactive ball-milled powders at beamline 32-ID-B of the Advanced Photon Source. For the first time, bubble nucleation, rapid growth, and a critical growth rate threshold necessary to cause microexplosions have been measured in pure metal or metal composite combusion.
