Strain Delocalization Engineering

Developing new advanced materials that delay and minimize plastic localization and accumulation: Strain Delocalization Engineering

The aptitude of the materials to localize the deformation is controlling mechanical properties. By metallurgical processing (control of the texture, chemistry, segregation, etc…) the microstructure can be modified to trigger mechanisms that delay and minimize the localization of the plasticity.
