Casting: art to aerospace - Professor Nick Green's Inaugural Lecture

Wednesday 22 November 2017, 17:15 - 18:30
Lecture Theatre GC13, Metallurgy and Materials (G6 on campus map [PDF])

Professor Nick Green's inaugural lecture will focus on the development of casting, a 6,000 year manufacturing process  in which a liquid material is poured into a mould, from ancient artform to its present and future applications in aerospace and high-tech manufacturing.

Professor Green will explain through discussion and practical demonstrations the process of casting, its ability to profoundly influence material performance, and its use in a wide range of applications. The lecture will reflect on the amazing pace of innovation that has taken place in casting since the first jet powered flights and explore how new developments in our understanding the fundamental aspects of crystal growth are critical to driving future improvements.

Nick Green is the Professor of Manufacturing Technology in the School of Metallurgy and Materials. and Director of the High Temperature Research Centre. He leads the Casting Research Group, and is Director of the Casting Partnership with Rolls-Royce. Nick was appointed to an Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Centre (EPSRC) sponsored Star Chair in 2005.

Complimentary alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks will be served at the event. Alcoholic drinks will be served only to those who are aged 18 or over.
