Abstract

Metallurgy and metals processing is going through period of rapid change driven by the need to improve their performance in-service but also by the socio-economic drivers of reducing process waste and emissions. To address these challenges the overall objective of the Advanced Metals Processing theme is to establish a world leading facility for metals discovery, processing, characterisation, upscaling and manufacturing, with a view to creating a link through to the digitally integrated, sustainable and resource efficient factory of the future. The focus will be on metals process innovation in the "missing gap" between small-scale laboratory metals processing and the industrial scale. It will address the key themes of materials discovery, resource efficient materials manufacture, light weighting, flexible manufacturing, prototyping and production scale-up.

Planned Impact

The manufacturing and processing of materials to form components is one of the largest industrial sectors. In metal processing it alone accounts for 46% of all manufactured value, with an economic worth to the EEA of £1.3 trillion. Metals production consumes about 5% of global energy use and is responsible for an annual emission of over 2Gton of CO2, so efficiency in manufacture can produce significant reductions in environmental impact. There are many market sectors in the UK where metals production is paramount. For example, there are 1.5 million cars produced in the UK each year. The automotive sector is an exemplar of metals in competition, with the principle driver being a reduction in weight. New high strength steels compete with the latest aluminium alloys and wrought magnesium alloys will increasingly become competitive. In the automotive sector, 2020 fleet average emissions targets of 95 g/km will be superseded by ~ 60 g/km by 2050. The same issues apply in the aerospace sector. For a commercial aircraft, every Kg of weight reduction saves £300 in fuel costs. The consequence is that exponential growth in the use of Mg, Al and Ti is predicted in the drive towards light weight design. Airbus forecasts a doubling of the world aircraft fleet by 2030, but this must be realised with targets of 75% reduction in fuel burn by 2050. A key component of this will be the need to introduce new light weight materials. Thus, the move towards low carbon technologies will rely heavily on the invention of new materials that are stronger, lighter, requiring less material to the used for the application, and have lower manufacturing carbon footprints. They must also feed into more efficient component design, work in multimaterial systems, and manufacture, with extended component lifetime and be recyclable at the end of life, implying a minimised whole life-cycle carbon footprint.

Geographic Reach International
Primary Audience Professional Practitioners
Results and Impact The International Conference on High-Performance Ceramics (CICC) series is sponsored by
the Chinese Ceramic Society and aims at providing an international forum for presentation,
discussion and review of the latest advances in science and technology of high-performance
ceramics. During the past years, the CICC series has developed to be the largest
international conference on ceramics held in China and also an important international
ceramic conference in Asia. Since 1998 when the first conference, CICC-1, was held in
Beijing, CICC series attracted more and more scholars and graduate students to join
together and exchange information in all areas related to the recent development in the field
of high-performance ceramics.
This year, there were about 1500 attendees working at universities, institutions and
companies to attend this conference. More than 750 talks were given. The conference
started with some very interesting Plenary Lectures, such as, cold sintering of electroceramic
materials, devices and novel nanocomposites, designing the processing of advanced
ceramic composites to yield the required properties, the roles of electrons in nominally ionic
ceramics and so on.
The most interesting presentation for me is given by one of the most famous experts, Prof.
Jeff Snyder, from Northwestern University. His citations are more than 40000. In this talk, he
proposed that the influence of micro/nanostructure on thermal conductivity is a topic of great
scientific interest and of particular technological importance to thermoelectrics. The current
understanding is that structural defects primarily decrease thermal conductivity through
phonon scattering where the phonon speed is fixed. All boundaries, whether interfaces between two materials or even grain boundaries are thought to scatter heat carrying
phonons perfectly randomly. In this frequency-independent model, phonons simply cannot
travel coherently across a boundary and that all boundaries are the same which is clearly
unphysical for low angle grain boundaries. He discussed his analysis of phonon scattering
that controls the thermal conductivity of many common thermoelectric materials. He found
that the grain boundary dislocation strain model could substitute for the frequency-
independent model. More importantly, the two models can be distinguished at low
temperature in fine-grained materials such that experimental evidence supports the grain
boundary dislocation strain model. In this way, he suggested that grain boundaries
themselves are best conceptualized as a collection of dislocations. In fact, a major
contribution to the reduction in thermal conductivity, and the resulting improvement in
thermoelectric figure of merit (zT>2), in high efficiency Na-doped PbTe can be attributed to
this internal-strain induced lattice softening effect. His talk really presents new avenues to
control lattice thermal conductivity, beyond phonon scattering, with microstructural defects
and internal-strain.
This conference provides me a good chance to learn from the famous experts from various
ceramic based research fields and an opportunity to establish some potential collaborations
with other Chinese Researchers. It broadened my horizons and enlarged my understanding
of ceramic based materials.
Interest for Royce@Sheffield team: Prof. Qiuyun Fu and Prof. Ruzong Zuo are interest
about the slot die. They are famous experts in Electronic Ceramics. They would like to know
more details about the slot die and how to make uniform thin ceramic layers. They are both
happy to establish collaborations with us in the future.
