Openings for PhD students (Fall 2021):We are looking for motivated and enthusiastic students with a background in lower length scale modeling to be part of our group.

Welcome to the MultiPhysics Lab @ ASU

The Multiphysics Lab in the School for Engineering of Matter, Transport, and Energy (SEMTE) at ASU is directed by Prof. Solanki where our group uses multiscale modeling and experiments to develop structure-property relationships across multiple length and time scales for materials by design.

Current Research Projects

1. Mechanical behavior of nanocrystalline alloys – A combined experimental and modeling approach

2. Hydrogen embrittlement in α-Iron

3. Fatigue Crack Growth Mechanisms in Microstructurally-Stable Nanocrystalline Alloys

4. Investigation of fundamental creep behavior and mechanisms in a thermally stable nanocrystalline alloy

Sponsors: ONR, NSF, ARL, PNNL, HoneyWell

Research Highlights
High Strain Rate Test with DIC NanoScale Hydrogen Diffusion Dislocation Motion
Aberration corrected TEM with precession diffraction to obtain grain size and crystallography
Segregation energy map: GB engineering - Hydrogen embrittlement case
The GB systems with the dark blue band represent a higher preference to segregate than the systems with the red band, whereas the red and the blue bands represent the extremities of the color bar.
Quantifying structure-property relationships of a resistant spot welded aluminum 6061-T6 joint
