  • Luisa Böhme achieves 2nd place at the 12th conference "Gefüge und Bruch" (Bochum, Germany, February 14-15, 2019) with her poster "Mechanische Eigenschaften mikrostrukturierter Ti-Miniaturproben unter zyklischer Belastung" within the collaborative research center 926.
  • AWP is hosting Adriana Eres-Castellanos, who has been awarded a DAAD grant for a research stay between February and April 2019. Adriana Eres-Castellanos is predoctoral researcher at the Department of Physical Metallurgy at the spanish National Centre for Metallurgical Research (CENIM-CSIC) in Madrid, who has worked in the European Project Towards Industrial Applicability of medium C Nanostructured Bainitic Steels (TIANOBAIN), Ref: RFCS-CT-2015-709607, with the aim of studying the viability of the thermo-mechanical treatment called ausforming to obtain such structures. She has joined the AWP Team to study the effect of the deformation on the anisotropy in terms of crystallography.
