The prize-winning study demonstrated the power of neutron beams to provide useful insights into the performance of aluminum alloys at high temperatures that vehicle engines and other powertrain components often experience.
The research team included:
- Dimitry G. Sediako and Ahmed M. Nabawy (Canadian Nuclear Laboratories)
- Wojciech Kasprzak, and Frank Czerwinski (CanmetMATERIALS)
- Amir R. Farkoosh (McGill University, Montreal, QC, Canada)
The 2016 Light Metals Subject Award for Aluminum Alloys was awarded by The Minerals, Mining, & Materials Society (TMS) for their in-situ neutron diffraction study: High Temperature Creep Evolution in Al-Si Alloys Developed for Automotive Powertrain Applications.
