101 Series  Webinar -  August 3, 2017


Join us for a webinar to learn about one of the cutting-edge applications of nanoscientific

Steel and Metal Alloys 101

 Join us for a series of lectures featuring materials sciences expert Prof. Rigoberto Advincula of Case Western Reserve University! Our new series with Prof. Advincula aims to a beginner's friendly first foray into a new materials science field each month. By exploring the basics and fundamental science of each featured field, we hope to expand your appreciation for the research and engineering helping us craft the world of tomorrow by improving the one we live in today.

Our next entry in this series is focused on steel and metal alloys. Steel is widely used alloy of iron, carbon, and several other elements that is widely used construction due to its high tensile strength and low material and processing costs. As one of the most common materials in the world, steel is produced in amounts exceeding 1.3 billion tons annually.

Join us as Prof. Advincula surveys the field of steel and metal alloy research and development and gives us a tour on how we work with these materials today, characterize their properties, and usher in next-generation technologies via the latest techniques in chemical, electrical, materials, and mechanical engineering.

Presented by Prof. Rigoberto Advincula
