M. Sc. Alberto Ferarri
Alberto Ferrari started his PhD in September 2016 at the Interdisciplinary Centre for Advanced Materials Simulation (ICAMS), Ruhr-Universität Bochum. He is investigating the effects of ternary elements additions to Ti-Ta-based alloys at the atomistic level using ab-initio techniques. To study the phase stability and the change in martensitic start temperature as a function of the alloy composition, he employs density functional theory calculations and molecular dynamics simulations.
- electronic structure calculations of the stability of the relevant phases in Ti-Ta-X
- free energy calculations of the relevant phases in Ti-Ta-X
