In the field of fatigue, she has been working on cyclic plasticity under non-proportional loading, microcracks interacting with grain boundaries, prediction of crack paths and growth rates under mixed-mode loadings, high-cycle fatigue and corrosion-fatigue under biaxial-tension, cold dwell and Marci effects in titanium alloys, and fatigue of ultrafine grained alloys up to the VHCF regime. Outside this field, she investigated thermally-induced cracking and crack healing in glass, strength of surface nanostructured optical windows, as well as room-temperature creep, solute hydrogen effects and grain-boundary sliding in titanium.

Linköping University, Sweden
Talk title: Effect of Microstructure on the High Temperature Fatigue Behaviour of Metals made by Powder Bed Additive Manufacturing
Johan Moverare is Professor and head of division in Engineering Materials at Linköping University in Sweden and currently also part time guest professor at University West in Trollhättan, Sweden. He also has more than 10 years of industrial experience work at Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery as specialist in Superalloys.

Moverare’s main research focus is the relationship between microstructure and mechanical properties of metallic materials, especially fatigue and creep properties of high temperature alloys, such as steels and Ni-base superalloys. His experience covers test methods, modelling aspects as well as characterization of deformation and failure mechanisms during fatigue. Many of the resent studies has been on fatigue of additively manufactured metals.
