If you have a question about this talk, please contact Ms Helen Gardner.

Significant current research effort is being expended in the area of intermetallic reactions in order to try and harness the energy released in these reactions for a wide variety of applications. This talk will focus on a number of research projects that have been completed at the Fracture and Shock Physics Group at the Cavendish into these materials, with a focus on nickel-aluminium and aluminium-tungsten mixtures. Experiments were conducted to examine both the reactivity of these materials as well as a range of mechanical behaviour in the unreacted state.

This talk is part of the Engineering Department Bio- and Micromechanics Seminars series.
