The aim of his PhD project is to reveal the underlying physics of Thermoelectric magnetohydrodynamic microstructural control during additive manufacturing (AM) through combing in situ synchrotron x-ray imaging and numerical modelling. His research includes the design of permanent magnet equipment, in situ and ex situ characterization, as well as modelling of the microstructure evolution in AM under the influence of static magnetic field. Combination of the in situ experiments and numerical modelling at a microstructure level is expected to provide unique insight into the mechanism of magnetic field control of AM microstructure, reveal the melt pool dynamics in terms of fluid flow, heat transfer and mass transportation during magnetic field assisting AM.
Many congratulations to Dr Sunthar Mahalingam, whose excellent work in materials science research has earned him an international Young Researchers Award, to…Read more
