    PhD position: Study of elementary deformation mechanisms of multi-component metallic alloys (high-entropy alloys) with a body centered cubic structure
    Announcement date: 24 April 2018

    [show details]

    Description

    The proposed thesis is dedicated to the study of refractory HEAs with a BCC structure. The main objective of the work is to examine the evolution of mechanical properties of solid solutions Nbx(HfTaTiZr)100-xwith x ranging between 20 and 100 (at.%). The proposed strategy would lead to identify the impact of elementary substitutions in the solid solutions on the mechanical behavior of the processes materials. The evolution of underlying deformation mechanisms will be at the center of the study and mainly performed by in-situ Transmission Electron Microscopy(TEM).

     

    The ambitious nature of the proposal lies in this approach and also focuses on scientific axes, considered since decades as expertise domains of the partners: from the chemical metallurgy (formulation and preparation) to the properties through microstructure investigations and the understanding of the microstructure/mechanical properties relationships. Alloy preparation will be performed by arc-melting and coupled with heat treatment optimization and the use of a Gleeble thermochanical simulator. Mechanical properties will be evaluated with simple and complex mechanical tests in order to assess the evolution of deformation mechanisms with temperature and/or strain rate. Deformation mechanisms will be finely surveyed within-situTEM straining experiments in a broad range of temperature (100 K – 1273 K). The long experience gathered by one of the partners (CEMES) on such dynamical testing in TEM is clearly an asset for the project. De facto, the thesis will be held in Thiais, near Paris , with long stays at CEMES in Toulouse.

    Requirements

    He or she should demonstrate a solid background in Materials Science with an excellent ranking/level in their Master’s degree.
