Project 1: Ti-based alloys for biomedical applications
This project deals with additive manufacturing of biomedical Ti alloys. The main focus will be the determination and correlation of process-microstructure-mechanical properties and the characterization of the fatigue properties.
Project 2: Ti-Ta-X shape memory alloys
This project deals with additive manufacturing of Ti-based shape memory alloys. The main focus will be the determination and correlation of process-microstructure-functional properties as well as the characterization of the functional fatigue properties in both, heating cooling and superelastic experiments.
Project 3: Ti- high entropy alloys
The project deals with the in-depth characterization of Ti based high entropy alloys. The deformation and phase transformation characteristics will be analysed by thermomechanical testing and in situ testing. Microstructural investigation will shed light on the microstructural mechanisms leading to failure.
