Next-generation coatings for advanced wear-resistant materials (Next-Coat)

This project aims at unravelling the influence of chemistry and microstructure on the key mechanical properties of anticorrosive coatings, such as the strength, the ductility and the wear-resistance. The producers of these materials can tune the chemistry and microstructure, however with limited understanding of what controls these properties. We address this question by an integrated multi-scale experimental-modeling approach, considering (i) the role played by chemistry on the nanoscale mechanisms such as dislocation plasticity and failure, and (ii) the influence of the microstructure, including the grain boundaries, on the plasticity and failure of polycrystalline coatings.
