Over the last two decades, martensite phase transformation in shape memory alloys and high strength steels have attracted a lot of attention with applications ranging from lightweighting in automotive industry to biomedical devices. Deployment of these applications is however non-trivial requiring multiscale modeling and advanced experimental analysis. The research discussed here is driven by the development of models and methodologies allowing to consider the influence of microstructure on the macroscopic behavior.
Prof. Etienne Patoor joined Georgia Tech Lorraine, Metz, France in October 2015. Prior to joining Georgia Tech Lorraine, he was a professor at Arts et Metiers Paris Tech where he served as Department Head of the Mechanics, Materials and Processes Department from 2006 to 2009. Between 1999 to 2008 he was the Director of the Laboratory of Physics and Mechanics of Materials, a joint research laboratory between University of Metz, Arts et Metiers and CNRS. His research interests are in martensitic phase transformation in shape memory alloys and steels.
