The Valdevit group receives a sub-contract from the Worcester Polytechnic Institute (Prime: Army Research Lab) to investigate the microstructure and mechanical properties of gas atomized Aluminum powder for Cold Spray applications, and relate the processing parameters to the microstructure and eventually the mechanical properties of the Cold Sprayed deposits. Prof. Mumm (ChEMS, UCI) and Prof. Lavernia (ChEMS, UCI) are co-PIs on this effort. Please visit our research page to learn more.
