Biography

Dr. Hazeli research aims at designing, testing, and optimizing mechanical properties of multifunctional materials for high temperature, fatigue, and impact application. In our lab, we use combined experimental and modeling techniques to map processing-microstructure-property relationships in multifunctional materials made of superalloys and refractory materials with macroscopic and microscopic hierarchical structures e.g., lattice structures. We investigate how damage initiates and transmits from the microstructure level to the structural element length scale. We use such information to delay the damage initiation process and thus improve mechanical behavior reliability by finding an optimized combination of microstructure and topology of the structural elements. The challenging and yet exciting part of it is that the combined effect of microstructure and structural topology is environment and material specific. Therefore, discovering an optimized balance between microstructure and geometry under different loading condition is essential for a successful design.
