Is it still worth it to work on metals? Yes. After being considered an art over the last 5,000 years, the scientific discoveries of the 19th and 20th centuries have turned metal making into a science. In many ways, metals have no rivals: they have exceptional stiffness and toughness, low cost, and good resistance to harsh environments. This talk presents a case study on how science is starting to help industry—producing better, cheaper, more sustainable material.
Arthur Després is currently a Phd student at UBC. He is a graduate engineer from the faculty of Lyon, France. He finished his diploma in collaboration with the University of Tokyo. Upon returning to France, he worked one year with APERAM, branch of the metallurgical company ArcelorMittal. At UBC, he is trying to improve the properties of application of stainless steels.
