Titel på föreläsningen:
Casting, dinosaur skulls, cookies and trees: When differences unite into extraordinary structures

Although dinosaur skulls, cookies and trees may seem essentially different from metal castings, they share the common feature of having local variations in their internal material structure. In natural designs, these structural variations are tailored to enable extraordinary performance and damage tolerance.

This lecture presents research that aims to understand the effect of local material variations in metal castings, and enable computational predictions of heterogeneous microstructure-based material behaviour and the performance of castings in use. The research spans over multiple length scales (from macro to nano-scale) as well as different research disciplines, and enables new methodologies to design and optimize industrial castings that, just like natural designs, utilize these local variations to enable extraordinary structures.
