Collaboration uses Lehigh's advanced electron microscopes to pinpoint phase transition Why does a solid metal that is engineered for ductility become brittle, often suddenly and with dramatic consequences, in the presence of certain liquid metal impurities? The phenomenon, known as liquid metal embrittlement, or LME, has baffled metallurgists for a century. Now, a team of ceramics researchers has shed light on LME by obtaining atomic-scale images of unprecedented resolution of the...

A biomechanical experiment conducted at the University of Pennsylvania School of Engineering and Applied Science has answered a long-standing theoretical question: Will microorganisms swim faster or slower in elastic fluids? For a prevalent type of swimming, undulation, the answer is "slower." Paulo Arratia, assistant professor of mechanical engineering and applied mechanics, along with student Xiaoning Shen, conducted the experiment. Their findings were published in the journal Physical...

A "metal foam" that has a similar elasticity to bone could mean a new generation of  biomedical implants that would avoid bone rejection that often results from more rigid implant materials, such as titanium. Researchers at North Carolina State University have developed the metal foam, which is even lighter than solid aluminum and can be made of 100 percent steel or a combination of steel and aluminum. In a new paper, researchers have reported recent findings that, in addition to the...
