Two Fundamental Metallurgy Principles
I’m a metallurgical engineer with over 25 years of experience working on product design, manufacturing, and root cause analysis.
Most engineers think of metallurgists only for failure analysis of component failures. While I do that, I also help design teams with component design. I help select alloys and coatings that have the corrosion, fatigue, wear, and creep properties needed to meet reliability requirements. Oftentimes, trade-offs are required between component form and materials to optimize a design for performance, reliability, and cost. I help do that, too.
