- Investigate the properties of a novel cobalt-based superalloy and study how it compares to nickel-based superalloys.
- Develop a multiscale simulations methodology to predict the stability of superalloys for aerospace applications.
- Examine the thermodynamic and kinetic properties of interfaces combining atomic simulations and field models.
- Implement these interfaces in field models to eventually investigate aging and emerging interface instabilities in these superalloys.
Graduate researcher profile: Sourav Ghosh
- The CALPHAD (Thermodynamic database) data for the cobalt-based superalloy was not implemented in the database.
- There is a lack of an accurate inter-atomic potential for ternary cobalt-based superalloys.
- There were several complexities while doing the first principle calculation of ternary alloys due to the structural complexity of multi-component alloys.
