The Gemeinsame Wissenschaftskonferenz GWK decided on July 2, 2021 to fund the NFDI-MatWerk consortia. It followed the recommendation of the expert panel and the German Research Foundation DFG. Prof. Erik Bitzek is Co-Spokesperson of NFDI-MatWerk and in charge for the Task Area Materials Data Infr...

Beyond hardness and elastic modulus: Alternative uses of nanoindentation Dr. Paul Baral (UC Louvain) (Nano)indentation has been investigated for more than 50 years to the extent that a tremendous amount of work has been dedicated to quantitatively extract the mechanical properties of small mater...

A new publication entitled “Understanding creep of a single-crystalline Co-Al-W-Ta superalloy by studying the deformation mechanism, segregation tendency and stacking fault energy” was recently published in Acta Materialia. This nice collaboration of various project partners of the SFB/TR103 and the...

Towards precipitate mechanism informed design of processing methods in nickel-based superalloys Dr. David Collins School of Metallurgy and Materials, University of Birmingham, UK It is well known that single crystal and powder-based polycrystalline nickel-base superalloys inherit microstructu...
