Green Alloys by Design

Coventry & Warwickshire Materials Society (CWMS) is pleased to announce their March lecture which will be delivered by Rory ROse of Alloyed Ltd on 'Green alloys by design - towards scrap tolerant aluminium.'

Rory studied materials science at Oxford before joining Alloyed where he focuses on developing computational tools for designing green alloys and combining metallurgy insights and data driven modelling to predict material properties.

Abstract: As manufacturing companies struggle to hit climate change targets, materials design shows a promising route for reducing process emissions. The uptake of high secondary fraction aluminium alloys has been difficult to achieve in property critical industries due to degradation of performance from compositional variation and build-up of harmful elements. To address these challenges, the classical approach of experience-based alloy design is no longer fit for purpose. However, a combination of high throughput computation and physical modelling - ‘Alloys-by-design’ - shows promise of solving these problems. Rory will show how Alloyed have developed a platform for designing green alloys and show recent applications to design of aluminium alloys for reduced process emissions in the automotive sector.

The lecture will be delivered as a hybrid event, being presented at Lecture theatre ECG-26 at the Frank Whittle Engineering & Computing Building of Coventry University at 3 Gulson Rd, Coventry CV1 2JH. Car parking is available at several city centre car parks. The event will begin at 18:00 with refreshments and an opportunity to network and the lecture will start at 18:30.
