A materials engineer, Alireza Sadeghi is an Assistant Professor of Manufacturing at University of Tehran’s College of Engineering, School of Mechanical Engineering. His research interests span a wide range of topics in physical and mechanical properties of light alloys and their manufacturing technologies. He focuses on questions such as: How we can build new alloys with higher performances? Where can we replace light alloys with other materials? and how can me make real parts out of these new developed alloys?
In light alloys, physical and mechanical properties are dependent to compositions, micro-structures and crystallographic textures. These parameters are controlled by alloy synthesis and subsequent thermo-mechanical processing. At Research Center for Advanced Light Alloys Technologies (RCALAT), Professor Sadeghi and his research team are working on processing of light alloys to enhance, control and optimize their properties.
