Graphene coatings make steel corrosion-resistant

IFM researchers have grown graphene flakes directly onto stainless steel, improving the metal's resistance to corrosion.

Miracle fuel

IFM researchers are helping to make hydrogen extraction from water more feasible.

Not just a flight of fancy

IFM researchers get closer to shape-morphing aircraft wings.

Our Facilities

Deakin fatigue group is equipped and supported by outstanding and modern facilities located within IFM which provide us with exceptional capabilities in conducting research ranging from purely fundamental to more applied aspects of fatigue research.

The list of facilities which are frequently used in our research are as follows:

  • MTS 25 KN fatigue frame
  • Instron 100 KN fatigue frame
  • Temperature chamber for 100kN test frame
  • Electron Microscope Facility that includes scanning electron microscopes (with EBSD, FIB and EDX capabilities), transmission electron microscopes and atom probe tomography

Deakin University acknowledges the traditional land owners of present campus sites.
