Dr. Eric Taleff: Mechanical Behavior and the Thermo-Mechanical Processing of Structural Materials

Professor Eric Taleff received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University in 1995. He was a member of the faculty of the Department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at UT from 1995 until 1998, and since 1998 has been a member of the faculty of the Department of Mechanical Engineering. He is an active member in the Minerals, Metals & Materials Society, ASM International, and American Society of Professional Engineers professional societies.

Dr. Taleff specializes in the mechanical behavior and the thermo-mechanical processing of structural materials, with emphasis on processing-microstructure-property relationships. His current research interests include the ductility of Al-Mg alloys at elevated temperatures, including superplasticity and superplastic alloys, and processing-microstructure-property relationships in hypereutectoid steels, particularly for high-strength wire applications. The Taleff Research Group works in these and other areas related to structural materials.
