    Abstract
    Singh, Harjot
    Additive manufacturing (AM) is a manufacturing method that offers flexibility and customization along with economic advantages. In this study, additively manufactured UNS R31537 (Co-28Cr-6Mo; CoCrMo), UNS R56400 (Ti-6Al-4V; Ti-64) and UNS S31603 stain . . .

    Abstract
    Gomez, Rogine
    The objective of this project is to understand the microbiologically induced corrosion (MIC) behavior of open-cell aluminum foams (UNS A96101). UNS A96101 foams were fabricated through an investment casting process and subsequently heat treated. Immer . . .

    Abstract
    Steidel, Kourtney
    Stainless steels are widely used in industry due to their relative low cost and high mechanical strength; however additional protection is needed in harsh operating conditions, such as gas turbines. In addition to high operating temperatures, material . . .

    Abstract
    Gomez, Rogine
    The proton exchange membrane electrolyzer cell (PEMEC) offers a potential solution to reduce the carbon footprint for hydrogen production via water splitting, but its feasibility and longevity are limited by the lack of functional materials. The deman . . .

    Abstract
    Mccurry, Patrick
    Carburization is a well-known method to achieve surface hardening of metallic materials. Among the commonly studied carburization processes, pack carburization is a safer and relatively affordable alternative compared to other surface carburization pr . . .

    Abstract
    Guo, Kevin
    Typical corrosion testing methods produce data that are often difficult to reproduce because of human errors or material inconsistencies. Minor variations in the testing environment or the sample microstructure can create large errors. In addition, th . . .

    Abstract
    Chan, Lun
    Austenitic 304L stainless steel (UNS S30403) is a favorable candidate for additive manufacturing due to its extensive commercial applications. Prior research has found that selective laser melted (SLM) UNS S30403 alloys exhibit higher resistance to pi . . .
