The present special issue of Advanced Engineering Materials, guest-edited by Helmut Clemens, Jürgen Eckert, Christian Mitterer and Clara Schuecker, gives an overview on the materials science and engineering activities at the Montanuniversität Leoben.
The Montanuniversität Leoben was founded in the year 1840 and covers all areas related to mining, metallurgy and materials. For decades, the Montanuniversität has been known as an internationally recognized center of excellence for materials science and engineering. Materials-related study programs in Leoben include materials science, metallurgy, polymer engineering, and mechanical engineering. In both education and research, all material classes are covered, i.e., metals and their alloys, intermetallics, composites, ceramics, polymers, semiconductors, as well as nanostructured or ultrafine-grained structural and functional materials, including both experiments and modelling. The mission of the materials science and engineering activities at the Montanuniversität is application-oriented basic research. The research spans all the way from atomic via nano-, micro- and meso-scale structure, property and functionality investigations, to industrially relevant components, thus truly bridging all length scales through synergistically combining expertise from materials science, physics, chemistry, metallurgy and mechanical engineering.
Examples of recent research work included in this special issue cover plasticity and deformation mechanisms on the nano-to-micro scale, supersaturation in ultrafine-grained immiscible systems, high performance steels, high-temperature alloys and intermetallics, functional electro-ceramics, hierarchically architected structural and functional materials, thin films for nanostructured flexible electronics, networked photopolymers and polypropylene implants, as well as additive manufacturing of metallic alloys, atomistic-modelling-based materials design and materials characterization through advanced high spatial resolution techniques.
