New techniques for solving multifaceted problems
Results of our 3D-XRD experiments and CPFE simulations on zirconium and titanium revealed a surprising deformation mechanism in these materials. Modeling and experimentation showed that grains' neighborhood have significant effects on load-sharing, such that under tensile loading, stress relaxation can happen at the grain level.
