Work offered

Kind of work:
Validation High-throughput annealing simulator
This project aims at validating the use of an innovative high throughput method to map key variables and eventually design an optimal thermal treatment cycle for these steels. The trainee will use the high throughput annealing simulator to perform various thermal treatments. The thereby obtained materials will be investigated with light optical microscopy, Vickers hardness and Charpy toughness testing. The microstructural and mechanical assessment will be performed to demonstrate the advantage of the newly produced material compared to the currently existing reference.
