Effects of Superhydrophobic Coating on Corrosion Resistance

Dr. Yao's project studies the mechanism that governs corrosion and electrochemical reactions on superhydrophobic coating. This study shows that the resulting superhydrophobic surface exhibit durability and corrosion resistance.

Effect of Residual Elements on the Mechanical Strength of Recycled Steels

Dr. Guduru's project is sponsored by Gerdau Long Steel involves a small-scale mechanical testing technique, shear punch test, built to study the mechanical properties of wire rod steels (produced by Gerdau Long Steel) as a function of their residual content while correlating with their tensile properties and microstructures.
