Presentation Title MC-12: Understanding Fatigue Mechanisms through Microstructural Control
Author(s) Phalgun Nelaturu
On-Site Speaker (Planned) Phalgun Nelaturu
Abstract Scope EDUCATION •PhD in Materials Science and Engineering, May 2016, University of North Texas •MS in Materials Science and Engineering, Dec 2010, University of Florida •B. Tech in Metallurgical Engineering, May 2008, National Institute of Technology, India EXPERIENCE My PhD is focused on understanding fatigue mechanisms at ambient and elevated temperatures. Some of the accomplishments during my PhD are- •Identified the change in fatigue cracking mechanism with temperature in aluminum alloys (a novel contribution to fatigue literature). •Improved the fatigue life of cast aluminum alloys through by friction stir processing (FSP). •Understood the influence of microstructure and temperature on cyclic deformation. •Enhanced the room temperature ductility of magnesium alloys (considered a grand challenge) via FSP. I am determined to apply my expertise (metal fatigue, FSP, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), fractography, electron back scattered diffraction (EBSD), and mechanical testing) to conduct seminal research in understanding material behavior for automotive and aerospace applications.
