This course explores the enhancement of mechanical and thermal properties of metals through the infusion of various nano-materials. It discusses the various nano-materials and compatible metals, the mechanical and high temperature properties of nanometals, and the results of published experiments, which use a variety of metals and nano-materials. In addition, the course covers the relative advantages and disadvantages of various manufacturing processes used for fabricating nanocomposites.
You will learn:
- How the infusion of nano-materials improves the thermal-mechanical properties of metals
- The effects of electrical erosion on metals
- How the infusion of nano-materials improves electrical erosion resistance of metals
- The various processing methods for nano-materials infused metals, known as metal matrix nanocomposites, or MMNCs
Who should attend:
Engineers, managers and students who wish to learn more about nanotechnology and nanometals.
Ahsan Mian earned his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET), an M.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Tuskegee University, Tuskegee, Alabama, and a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Auburn University in 2000.
