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.

Deakin showcases 3D sheet metal forming at Numisheet 2014

Deakin's Professor Jeong Whan Yoon chaired the organising committee for Numisheet 2014.

Master of his destiny

Deakin right fit for (auto)motivated Mohan Setty.


The fatigue group at Deakin is primarily focused on understanding the mechanisms controlling fatigue and fracture in conventional and advanced materials. The group has the capabilities and expertise to study the fatigue and fracture behaviour of a wide range of materials over a wide range of conditions, such as strain rate, strain, load, temperature, and environments. In addition, the group uses the state-of-the-art characterisation facilities at Deakin to assist in establishing the microstructural factors responsible for this behaviour.
