|Mars G. Fontana Professor of Metallurgical Engineering|
Prof. Daehn has been on the Faculty since 1988 when he completed his formal education at Northwestern University (B.S.) and Stanford University (M.S. and Ph.D.) He maintains wide interests in problems related to mechanical behavior, plasticity and mechanical processing in manufacturing. His research is in areas where fundamental principles can be applied in new ways to solve practical problems:
|Hyperplasticity and High Velocity Metal Forming|
Details are available at www.osu.edu/hyperplasticity.
|Electromagnetic launch of an aluminum plate. 30µs between images.||Our Concept of a hybrid press|
|Rate Dependent Plastic Deformation|
|Daehn has long-standing interests in creep, plasticity and superplasticity. His group has carefully considered how thermal expansion mismatch in composites can accelerate plastic deformation when temperature is changed. This understanding has been applied to life assessment in high temperature composites and to thermal-cycling superplastic forming. More recently activities are centered on modeling rate dependent deformation considering how many obstacles and load shedding act together. The figure at the left comes from some of that work and shows the variation in slip activity in varied parts of a microstructure resulting from local 'hard' and 'soft' spots.|

While studying as an undergraduate, Michael Breslin made
the surprising discovery that if dense silica is immersed in liquid
aluminum at a temperature around 1100 C the stable oxide, alumina,
will form in a porous morphology and aluminum will fill the pores.
This reaction takes place replicating the shape of the silica precursor.
With Hamish Fraser, we have studied the kinetics, structure (right)
and mechanical properties of these composites.
