A possibility to publish your latest research on recrystallization in metallic materials!

I am guest editing a special issue of the journal Crystals together with Prof. M. Ristinmaa. The topic of this special issue is "Recrystallization of Metallic Materials" and it is open for submissions until August 1st. More information on the scope of the special issue and on submission procedures etc. can be found at the journal's special issue web page, following this link.

Crystals (ISSN 2073-4352) is an international, open access journal of crystallography, published monthly online by MDPI. The journal is indexed in, e.g., Scopus and Web of Science and the 2016 IF is 1.566.

New Paper on Laser Annealing of Cold Rolled Steel

A new paper is published in Metallurgical and Materials Transactions A, with the title Microstructure and Property Modifications of Cold Rolled IF Steel by Local Laser Annealing. The work investigates the possibilities in achieving very local microstructure and property modifications by laser annealing of cold rolled IF steel. It is shown that this is a promising method for making functionally graded steels with high precision.

WCCM 2016 mini-symposium on "Numerical methods for front tracking problems at the microscale"

The 12th World Congress on Computational Mechanics (WCCM XII) will be held in Seoul, Republic of Korea, 24-29 July 2016. At this event, I am co-organizing a mini-symposium on Numerical methods for front tracking problems at the microscale. The conference (and the mini-symposium) is open for abstract submissions. More information can be found on the conference web pages: wccm2016.org.wccm-XII_2016

New paper on grain boundary texture stability in UO2

A paper was recently published in Journal of Nuclear Materials on the stability of certain grain boundary configurations in UO2 (Uranium Dioxide) during grain growth. The paper is titled Stability of grain boundary texture during isothermal grain growth in UO2 considering anisotropic grain boundary properties, and can be found here or at the at Science Direct.
