If you have a question about this talk, please contact Stephen Walley.

A presentation will be given about the materials science laboratory of the ISL . The lab consists of a powder metallurgy facility which includes a hot isostatic press, a laboratory-scale rolling-mill and a 400 tonne press. The lab is also equipped with three universal testing machines and four Hopkinson bars (including a tensile one) for the characterisation of materials’ mechanical behaviour. The materials that are studied are mainly those being considered for applications in ballistics. These applications include sabots, shaped charges, and wear resistant coatings in guns. A project concerning nanomaterials is running at present.

This talk is part of the Surfaces, Microstructure and Fracture Group series.
