Live Webinar: Characterising and Monitoring Materials Developed for Use in Extreme Environments
Tuesday, 12 March 2019 | 2-3 pm (GMT)
In heavily regulated industries, such as automotive and aerospace, there is a continuous requirement to limit environmental impact, reduce costs and increase safety. As a result these industries drive the ongoing development and corresponding testing of new materials to meet these challenging requirements. This encompasses developing new materials which are both lightweight (optimising fuel economy) and with increased strength for improved safety often operating in extreme environments such as aircraft turbines.
For these new materials to be successfully accepted in these markets requires a thorough understanding of material characteristics on the microscale and how these characteristics will influence performance on the macroscale. Important measurements include quantifying the cleanliness of the original material and determining the grain structure. In addition, an understanding of the performance of the material during service life is essential. Examples include monitoring wear debris and strain build up in service.
This detailed materials analysis is well serviced through the application of EDS and EBSD on SEM. These techniques are automated to deliver fast and accurate materials characterisation.
In this webcast, the speakers will demonstrate how combining the analytical techniques of energy dispersive X-ray spectrometry (EDS) and electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) on an electron microscope can be applied to the characterisation of these materials, ensuring manufacturing and product reliability.
