The Aerospace and Transportation Materials and Manufacturing (ATMM) pillar primarily conducts research in the following areas: additive manufacturing, automation and control for automotive applications, defect characterization of engineering materials via 3D X-ray imaging, multi-phase flow: applications and fundamentals, material joining/welding techniques, mathematical modelling (FEA/CFD) of manufacturing processes, multi-scale modelling of structure-processing-properties relationships, structural health monitoring of processes and structures, thermo-chemo-mechanical characterization of lightweight alloys and composite materials, and thermal management and cooling technologies for power electronics.
