MIT Researcher Creates Stronger Metals with Nanoscale Microstructures

MIT Researcher Creates Stronger Metals with Nanoscale Microstructures

The Schuh Group at MIT is developing new tungsten alloys that could be used to substitute depleted uranium in structural military applications, such as projectiles. Depleted uranium is a potential health hazard. The challenge was to create an alloy that is on par with uranium, which sharpens as it shears off material and sustains a pointed nose at the penetrator-target interface. [More]
