Scripta Materialia

I'm glad to announce that our work entiteld "Basal slip in Laves phases: The synchroshear dislocation" has been published in Scripta Materialia, and is available online [DOI], on arXiv and for free here [until 30.5.2019].


On the 8th of March, 2019, I'm glad to be back at the LEM3 in Metz (France). Invited by Dr. Stéphane Berbenni, I'm looking forward to discuss about our ongoing and futur collaborations on scale-bridging approaches, as weel as on novel methods for exchanges between numerical simulations and continuum modelings of material mechanics.

Our last work on precipitation strengthening in Mg alloy, in particular the interaction of basal Dislocations with Mg17Al12 precipitates, is now available on arXiv (arXiv:1902.09446): "Atomistic Simulations of Basal Dislocations Interacting with Mg17Al12Precipitates in Mg"

Our most recent work on plasticity in Laves phase, in particular the synchroshear in the basal planes of the C14 Mg2Ca intermetallics, is now available on arXiv (arXiv:1902.01646.) and still under peer review: "Basal Slip in Laves Phases: the Synchroshear Dislocation".
