Adam Abel Creuziger (Fed)

Materials Research Engineer

Dr. Creuziger's research interests are experimental and computational investigations into phase fraction measurements, texture measurements, and deformation and fracture processes of ductile metals. Current research is mainly focused on multi-axial deformation of phase transforming steels (TRIP steels). As part of the NIST Center for Automotive Lightweighting (NCAL) team, our instrumentation is capable of simultaneous in situ measurements of stress and strain loaded under multi-axial stress states to measure plasticity and phase transformation. Our project is also interested in changes in the loading path to provide experimental data on plasticity and fracture. Dr. Creuziger has also worked in developing a data management system for NCAL.

I have two active post-doctorate opportunities via the National Academies Research Associateship Program:

50.64.21.B8104     Advancing State-of-the-Art Material Phase and Crystallographic Texture Characterization        50.64.21.B6276     Direct Measurement of Multiaxial Yield Surfaces
