Research

Burak Bal’s research activities combine knowledge of materials science, solid mechanics, advanced manufacturing and biomechanics. Specifically, he is an expert on: mechanical property-microstructure relationships, multi-physics and multi-scale experimental and computational mechanics of materials, hydrogen embrittlement in metallic materials, mechanical deformation and microstructure evolution, in-situ microscopy and fatigue and fracture. He is interested in game-changing materials, such as high strength steels, high entropy alloys, titanium and shape-memory alloys.

There are openings in my lab for motivated MSc/PhD candidates who are interested in materials science, solid mechanics, and biomechanics. Interested individuals can send their CV to me via e-mail.
