The Masters of the Armourers and Brasiers Trust visited TWI on Tuesday 25 June, 2019, to present Travel Award Certificates to some of this year’s winners.
Each year, the Armourers and Brasiers Trust provide assistance to allow students to attend conferences around the world.
Among those awarded with travel grants was student, Kostas Georgilas, whose award will help fund his attendance at a conference in Trondhiem, Norway.
Kostas is a student at the National Structural Integrity Research Centre (NSIRC), a state-of-the-art postgraduate engineering facility established and managed by structural integrity specialist TWI, and the University of Aberdeen
Kostas will attend the First European Conference in Structural Integrity of Additively Manufactured Materials (ESIAM19), held in Trondheim, Norway between 9th and 11th September 2019. ESIAM is one of the first conferences specifically targeted at the materials science side of additive manufacturing. It is organised by universities in the UK, Netherlands and Norway in association with various European structural integrity societies. Kostas will attend the event as one of the symposia planned to take place involves the relationship between heat treatment, microstructure and mechanical properties. The theme of this symposium is directly linked to Kostas’ PhD research topic and the current research he has been carrying out.
Kostas is pursuing his PhD with NSIRC, where he is carrying out research on the metallurgy of additively manufactured materials with a project titled, ‘Multiscale Experimental and Computational Techniques for Optimising Selective Laser Melting (SLM) Additive Manufacturing (AM) Process Parameters.’
