Current work involves the coupling of thermodynamic models, based on Calphad methods, to novel kinetic models, enabling the time and temperature dependence of the microstructure (particularly second phase particles) to be determined for complex industrial alloys and processes. Such an approach is being used to predict microstructure evolution and subsequent effect on properties for a range of aluminium, magnesium, and zirconium alloys during processes such as hot rolling and welding. Applications for these materials include the automotive, aerospace, and nuclear industries.

Prof Ian Kinloch

My research focuses on polymeric and carbon (graphene and nanotubes  and related nanomaterials. The research takes the science from the controlled growth of the nanomaterials through to their processing and applications. My research on applications is on polymer-nanocarbon composites, electrodes and the bio-nano interface.
