Material research presentations win recognition for Windsor engineering students

Two UWindsor masters students of engineering materials claimed prizes for their oral presentations at the 2019 Canadian Materials Science Conference, June 10 to 13 in Vancouver.

The conference is a forum for academics and professionals to discuss advancements in a wide range of areas of materials science, as evidenced by the UWindsor winners.

Alexandra Rose’s presentation “Analyzing the fracture behaviour of tool steels in various stress triaxialities,” under the supervision of professors Ahmet Alpas and Daniel Green, was judged best in the symposium dedicated to advanced characterization of materials.

Liza DiCecco won the best oral presentation award in the additive manufacturing symposium for her work “Fatigue Behaviour of Shot-Peened Additive Manufactured Ti-TiB,” supervised by professor Afsaneh Edrisy.

The scope of the conference includes aspects of the structure, processing, properties and performance as applied to structural materials, functional materials, electronic materials, nanomaterials, biomaterials, materials for energy, and others.
