Ashley Bucsek receives NSF CAREER Award for work on martensitic phase transformations
Dr. Bucsek's proposal, titled “Understanding the Origins of Mechanical Hysteresis and Functional Fatigue in Martensitic Phase Transforming Materials,” seeks to understand why and how materials degrade, after repeated martensitic phase transformations.
