Step Into The Unknown: Modelling Titanium Alloys At Extreme Conditions

Lead Research Organisation: University of Warwick
Department Name: Physics

Abstract

Titanium alloys are very popular in industrial and medical applications due to their excellent mechanical and chemical properties. Among these the ternary alloy containing 6% aluminium and 4% vanadium is the most commonly used, yet little is known about the microscopical mechanisms that stabilise the alloy. Lack of insight makes it challenging to predict properties at extreme conditions, such as high pressures and temperatures near the melting point. To perform realistic computer simulations on the atomistic scale probing the uncharted territory of the phase diagram, you will develop a machine-learning accelerated model and apply it in large scale calculations.
