Selective oxidation of Aluminium Alloys with MATLAB

All elements have different rate of oxidation, but when an alloy is made out of them, corrosion behaviour changes. The study will be understanding the sequence of elements from the alloy with reaction with atmosphere via Finite element method.

About the Instructor

Ms. Shweta Shukla is a PhD student of Materials and Metallurgical Engineering, IIT Bombay with an experience of around 1.5 years as a researcher in R&D, Tata Steel Ltd., Jamshedpur.

Currently, she is working on hydrogen embrittlement and stress corrosion cracking (SCC) behavior of aerospace aluminum alloys. During her Tata steel tenure, she has handled major projects related to Aluminum aerospace selective oxidation (modelling), defects and annealing furnaces of galvanizing
line. She has hands-on experience on equipments like Glow Discharge Optical Emission Spectroscopy, Contact angle Instrument, Confocal Laser Scanning Microscope, Multichannel Potentiostat, Slow strain rate UTS machine, Scanning electron microscope, Differential Scanning Calorimetry, thermogravimetric analyzer and software like Thermocalc –Dictra, Prisma and Factsage, Rosetta, Matlab. She has also taken courses on some modeling subjects during my PhD – phase field modeling, Molecular Simulations and density functional theory.
