• #### Structural and thermodynamic properties of sodium actinide ternary oxides ﻿

(Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy, University of Cambridge, 2015-10-06)
In the potential event of a clad breach in a Sodium-cooled Fast Reactor (SFR), the sodium metallic coolant could come into contact with the (U,Pu,Np)$O_2$ nuclear fuel. The reaction products are numerous, but there is ...
• #### Wear of fine pearlite, nanostructured bainite and martensite ﻿

(Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy, University of Cambridge, 2017-01-16)
Abrasion is a form of wear prominent particularly in the agricultural, mining, mineral and transportation industries. The cost of abrasive wear to the national economy is estimated to be about 1% of the gross national ...
• #### The thermal stability of bulk nanocrystalline steels ﻿

(Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy, University of Cambridge, 2016-10-04)
Nanocrystalline bainite, commonly known as “superbainite”, is a novel class of steel that utilises careful alloy design to reduce the bainite transformation temperature to below 300℃. This results in grains that are tens ...
• #### Pulsed field magnetization of composite superconducting bulks for magnetic bearing applications ﻿

(2013-10-08)
Permanent magnets are essential components for many devices such as motors, which currently account for 45 % of global electricity consumption, generators and also superconducting magnetic bearings used for applications ...
