Our Mission

The H. H. Uhlig Corrosion Lab investigates the causes of failure in materials and the prevention of failure in materials, with an emphasis on nuclear materials.

New and Interesting Results



These are 2D Vickers hardness maps of electron beam welded BWR pipe cross sections after different aging times at 400C. The weld can be seen to increase in hardness with increased aging time, which is the opposite of what one would expect for a heat treatment similar to tempering.
