MECHANICAL, AUTOMOTIVE AND MATERIALS ENGINEERING AREAS OF SPECIALIZATION
Ph.D., M.A.Sc. and M.Eng. graduate programs in Engineering Materials are administered by Mechanical, Automotive and Materials Engineering upon the advice of its Graduate Studies Committee for Engineering Materials. Research is concentrated on the physical, mechanical, tribological, chemical and processing aspects of materials. The program hosts one NSERC/ Industrial Research Chair: i) Chair in Tribology of Light-weight Materials. Particular research topics include:
Material Design, Development: Aluminum alloys (wrought, cast, particulate, reinforced), structure refinement, nanocrystalline alloys, solidification and precipitation processing, metal hydrides for energy applications, ceramics and cementitious materials, metallic forms, materials for batteries and fuel cells, smart materials, computational materials science.
Material Processing: Surface coatings, surface modification technologies (PVD, CVD, thermal spraying) welding, machining, galvanizing and galvannealing of steels, steel fabrication, nanofabrication.
Mechanical Properties of Materials: Creep and fatigue behaviour, deformation mechanisms, computer simulation of deformation, corrosion, erosion, impact testing, crashworthiness evaluation.
Light Metals Casting Technology: Advanced foundry processes for lightweight castings for automotive engines; aluminum and magnesium alloys; new generation foundry materials, solidification modelling, die casting process control.
Tribology (Wear) Research: Friction and wear of metal matrix composites, coatings for tribological applications, development of wear resistant materials for automotive applications, micromechanical modeling of tribological processes.
Ph.D., M.A.Sc. and M.Eng. graduate programs in Mechanical Engineering are administered by Mechanical, Automotive and Materials Engineering upon the advice of its Graduate Studies Committee for Mechanical Engineering. Ph.D., M.A.Sc. and M.Eng. programs are offered in the areas of Machine Dynamics and Design, and Thermo-Fluids. In addition, at the masters level, a third Automotive field is available.In addition, the Department offers a separate M.Eng. in Mechanical Engineering (Automotive Field) specifically designed for a cohort of international students, particularly foreign-trained engineers.
