Dr. Javier Segurado, from the IMDEA Materials Institute has been invited by the Department of Continuum Mechanics at the UC3M to give a seminar on Fri 10th November at 13:00 pm (Room 1.1.F02, Betancourt Building, Leganés). This seminar will be devoted to Microstructure based simulations of a polycrystalline Ni superalloy.
Dr. Javier Segurado Escudero (more info here) graduated in Materials Engineering from the Polytechnic University of Madrid in 1999 and got his Ph.D. in the same university in the year 2004. After his thesis, he was assistant professor at the Material Science Department in the Polytechnic University of Madrid. Since 2008 he has a double appointment: a fix position as Lecturer in the same department and a researcher position in IMDEA-Materials. In IMDEA he is the leader of the research group “Multiscale Materials Modeling”.
His research is focused on the simulation of the mechanical behavior of Materials using micromechanical and multiscale modeling approaches. In metallic materials he has a wide expertise in simulating the mechanical response by means of atomistic models, discrete dislocation dynamic models and crystal plasticity finite element models. The research performed is oriented in obtaining the mechanical behavior, microstructure evolution, fracture and fatigue response in these materials as function of the microstructure. In composites he has developed several computational micromechanical models with the aim of determining the effect of microstructure, phase and interface properties on the non-linear behavior and fracture of these materials.
Dr. Javier Segurado is author of more than 60 international papers in the field of simulation, has more than 2.000 citations and h index of 26 (web of science). He has participated in more than 30 research projects with international, European and national founding, being principal investigator of 8 of them. He has 17 invited/keynote lectures in international conferences. He has directed 6 PhD theses. Finally, in 2010 he obtained the award for the best young researcher of the Technical University of Madrid and in 2017 he was awarded with a Fullbright grant for a sabbatical stay in the US.
