Welcome to the Gordon research group. Our research aims to understand and harness the mechanisms that control microstructural evolution in advanced manufacturing platforms. We accomplish this by leveraging novel experiments and computational tools designed at capturing the real-time behavior of structural metals under various applied fields.
Our most recent work has focused on metals additive manufacturing (3D Printing) using both beam (SLM, DED) and non-beam (Binder jet) based technologies. Overall our goal is to understand, predict, and ultimately control fundamental process-structure-property relationships in metals at the mesoscale (~ 1m – 1mm) via coupled multi-physics experiments and simulations.
