A $776k grant from the Department of Energy (DOE) Nuclear Energy University Program (NEUP) will enable a team of researchers from the University of Utah and Utah State University to benchmark microscale ductility measurements for reactor-grade metals. The team members include Owen Kingstedt (PI), Jiyoung Chang, Ashley Spear, and Ryan Berke. The team members will leverage their combined expertise in physical experimentation, modeling, and microfabrication to identify best practices for scaling mechanical measurements made on microscale-thickness specimens to the macroscale.NEUP Logo-Gold
