Dr Martin Walbrühl, male, is Materials Design Engineer at QT, and expert in ICME modelling. He develops physics-based models for various material applications, and his expertise applies to a wide variety of metals and alloy systems including HEAs, titanium, aluminium, steel, and others. His PhD work, from KTH Royal Institute of Technology, focused on the design of binder alloys for hard metal cutting tools, an application where a combination of hardness-strength-toughness-thermal conductivity and other properties are needed, requiring a complex microstructure that also evolves during operation. Martin has also developed a robust solution strength model for prediction of properties in HEAs and other multicomponent systems by applying a CALPHAD-based approach.
