Congratulations to Mahmoud Y. Hawary, NC State Nuclear Engineering doctoral student. He placed 3rd at the 8th International Conference on Creep, Fatigue and Creep-Fatigue Interaction (CF-8). His presentation was entitled “Superimposed effects of grain shape anisotropy and texture on biaxial creep of Nb modified Zircaloy cladding”.
“Mahmoud’s work yielded information that will be of use in predicting the dimensional changes of Zircaloy cladding in LWRs with emphasis on the effects of Nb addition and biaxial stress states.” – KL Murty, Progress Energy Distinguished Professor of Nuclear Engineering & serves as his faculty adviser
The International Conference on Creep, Fatigue and Creep-Fatigue Interaction (CF-8) was organized by the Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research (IGCAR), Kalpakkam, India, in association with the Metal Sciences Division of the Indian Institute of Metals and the Kalpakkam Chapter of the Indian Institute of Metals.
The 1st Conference in this series was held in the year 1987. Eminent researchers and engineers working in the areas of creep, fatigue, creep-fatigue interaction, materials development and high temperature design are invited to share their knowledge and expertise on these topics.
