CIM Distinguished Lecture—Prof. Hani Henein @ BA 1180
May 11 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Quantifying solidification path in rapid solidification using 3D measurements

Most metals and alloys processed undergo a solidification processing step.  Increasingly, there is a growing number of solidification processing routes that involve rapid solidification of the alloy.  These include strip casting, high pressure die casting, 3D printing, and atomization for the production of powders or spray formed parts.  By contrast, there are few experimental techniques developed to study the solidification path of alloys during rapid solidification.  Amongst these laser melting and solidification, Electromagnetic Levitation (EML) and Impulse Atomization (IA) are the most prominent.  Of relevance is the formulation of the solidification path of an alloy and the resultant identification and quantification of metastable phases and their relationship to processing conditions.  This typically involves the understanding of the interplay between undercooling and cooling rate for the various phases that form.  This presentation will outline some of the methodologies developed to quantify phase fractions and their solidification path as a function of processing conditions using EML and IA.

About the Speaker

Hani Henein, PEng, PhD, FCIM, FCAE, FASM
Professor at the Department of Chemicals & Materials Engineering, University of Alberta, AB

After completing the MEng at McGill University (1975) and a PhD at UBC (1981), Hani took up a faculty appointment at Carnegie-Mellon University, in Pittsburgh. In 1989, he moved to the University of Alberta, actively teaching and doing research on pipeline steels, metal-matrix composites and rapid solidification.  He now partners with industry in research and has extensive international collaborations.  As part of his mentoring activities, Hani formulated an international work abroad program for undergraduate students in several high-quality engineering programs in Europe and Japan, placing over 80 students since 2002.  In 2011, he formulated a Dual Degree Program with the Université de Lorraine.  Amongst his distinctions are five best paper awards, the prestigious Killam Research Fellowship and the Metals Chemistry Award.  He has been inducted Fellow of ASM International, CIM and the Canadian Academy of Engineers.  He was also MetSoc President in 1998, past editor of CMQ, and the 2014 President of the Minerals, Metals and Materials Society (TMS).

This event is sponsored by the CIM Foundation and the Toronto Institute of Advanced Manufacturing
