In-situ mechanical testing can provide beautiful and fun micrographs and movies. In this talk, I'd like to share two case studies that demonstrate even more significant outputs, towards novel microstructure design concepts. These studies will focus on two important engineering problems: metal chipping and hydrogen embrittlement.


Prof. C. Cem Tasan is Thomas B. King Associate Professor of Metallurgy in the Dept. of Materials Science and Engineering at MIT.  He received his BSc and MSc degrees from the Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Dept. of METU, Ankara/Turkey. He then moved to Eindhoven/Netherlands, to carry out his PhD within the group of Prof. Marc Geers in the Mechanical Engineering Dept. of Eindhoven University of Technology. Following his PhD degree in 2010 and two years of post-doc with Prof. Dierk Raabe in Max-Planck Institut fur Eisenforschung (MPIE), he was appointed in MPIE as a Group Leader, leading the Adaptive Structural Materials group until joining MIT in January 2016. His research is at the boundaries of physical metallurgy, solid mechanics, and in-situ microscopy, aiming to provide metals solutions to engineering challenges.
