Members of the team are available as appropriate for consulting projects. We have worked with industrial partners to understanding failure and performance of components, particularly with the combined role of microstructure, chemistry and mechanics. We also have significant expertise in electron backscatter diffraction, crystallographic texture, and microstructure analysis with access to our range of excellent equipment as required.
Projects should be discussed with Dr Ben Britton at an early stage to ensure the appropriate range and scope of deliverables. We will also discuss likely project plans, suitability of the experiments and analysis of results that can be performed.
Short term and commercially sensitive projects are run through Imperial Consultants, who manage the contractual and financial arrangements.
Longer term collaborative work, suitable for the open literature, can be performed through support of active projects. This is often through financial support of graduate studentships within the group.
Please discuss your needs with Dr Ben Britton.
