Ph.D. Science Student awarded Best Poster at the ICPMAT 2018 Vietnam
Ms. Kanokwan Udonsak, Doctoral Degree Student, Department of Physics and Materials Science, Faculty of Science, was awarded first place in the “Best Poster Award” in “The 13th International Conference on the Physical Properties and Application of Advanced Materials (ICPMAT 2018)” organized by Hanoi University of Science and Technology, Vietnam and the University of Toyama, Japan and the Japan Institute of Metals on September 4 – 7, 2018 held at Hanoi University of Science and Technology.
Her project researched “Pinning Particles and Abnormal Grain Growth in a 6063 Aluminum Alloy during Homogenization” and her main advisor was Assistant Professor Dr. Chaiyasith Bunchongprasert, and was co-advised by Dr. Chollathep Kachornchaikul, Professor Dr. Thoranin Chairuangsri, and Professor Dr. Kenji Matsuda.
The researched aimed to study causes of abnormal grain growth in aluminum grade 6063 during aluminum production. This research created a prediction model for the occurrence of abnormal grain growth, and will help the aluminum industry to address this probability in order to ensure quality aluminum products are produced.
