WPI's Diana Lados honored by SAE International and Minerals, Metals, and Materials Society
Date:4/15/2014

rs young metallurgists who demonstrate "exceptional promise of a successful career in the broad field of metallurgy and materials science." As an Early Career Faculty Fellow, Lados conceived and organized the "Integrative Materials Design: Performance and Sustainability," a symposium series held every three years at the TMS annual meeting.

A full-time faculty member at WPI since 2006, Lados is the founder and director of iMdc, an industry-government-university research and educational alliance dedicated to advancing the state of the art and practice in sustainable materials, process, and component design and manufacturing for high performance, reliability, and recyclability. The center's more than 20 members include some of the world's largest manufacturing companies and several government organizations and national laboratories.

In her research, Lados seeks to develop a better understanding of the fundamentals of fatigue, fatigue crack growth, thermo-mechanical fatigue, creep, and fracture in metals. She also studies integrated design and the optimization of materials and processes with an eye to preventing failure in structural components and developing more reliable and sustainable alloys and integrated design methodologies for automotive, aerospace, marine, and military applications. Supported by a five-year, $525,000 National Science Foundation CAREER Award (the agency's most prestigious award for young faculty members), along with other funding from the federal government and industry, her work is aimed at developing fundamental knowledge and design tools, including computational models, that can help designers replace steel and cast iron in vehicles with lighter metals, including aluminum, titanium, and magnesium, to increase performance and fuel efficiency. This work is augmented by additional iMdc research on novel metal-matrix nanocomposites (and original evaluation methods for high-temperature applications of metal alloys and composites)
