2013 - ASM Fellow "For outstanding contributions to the research and automotive applications of lightweight magnesium and aluminum alloys and leadership in international collaboration of light metals research and developments."

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Composite material
  • Metallurgy
  • Alloy

His primary areas of investigation include Metallurgy, Magnesium alloy, Alloy, Magnesium and Microstructure. The study of Metallurgy is intertwined with the study of Automotive industry in a number of ways. Alan A. Luo usually deals with Magnesium alloy and limits it to topics linked to Hardening and Fatigue limit and Fracture mechanics.

The concepts of his Magnesium study are interwoven with issues in Creep, Extrusion, Material properties and Aluminium. His Microstructure research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Ductility, Elongation and Intermetallic. His Strain hardening exponent study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Strain rate, Crystal twinning and Plasticity.

His most cited work include:

  • Recent magnesium alloy development for elevated temperature applications (690 citations)
  • Cast magnesium alloys for elevated temperature applications (438 citations)
  • Magnesium casting technology for structural applications (420 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of study are Metallurgy, Alloy, Microstructure, Magnesium and Magnesium alloy. His is involved in several facets of Metallurgy study, as is seen by his studies on Aluminium, Ultimate tensile strength, Extrusion, Crystal twinning and Die casting. His Alloy research includes themes of Ductility, Precipitation and Deformation.

His Microstructure study combines topics in areas such as Intermetallic, CALPHAD, Scanning electron microscope, Casting and Die. His work deals with themes such as Corrosion, Structural material, Casting, Automotive industry and Creep, which intersect with Magnesium. His Magnesium alloy research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Fatigue limit, Dynamic recrystallization, Hardening, Deformation mechanism and Grain size.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Metallurgy (64.20%)
  • Alloy (54.32%)
  • Microstructure (37.45%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Composite material (22.22%)
  • Alloy (54.32%)
  • Microstructure (37.45%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Composite material, Alloy, Microstructure, CALPHAD and Metallurgy. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Composite material, Automotive industry is strongly linked to Magnesium. Magnesium alloy is the focus of his Alloy research.

Alan A. Luo studied Microstructure and Wedge that intersect with Die and Sphericity. His research in CALPHAD intersects with topics in Thermomechanical processing and Directional solidification. Alan A. Luo mostly deals with Hot isostatic pressing in his studies of Metallurgy.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Materials for Automotive Lightweighting (29 citations)
  • Ultrahigh strength Mg-Al-Ca-Mn extrusion alloys with various aluminum contents (24 citations)
  • Ceramic coating for delayed degradation of Mg-1.2Zn-0.5Ca-0.5Mn bone fixation and instrumentation (14 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Composite material
  • Aluminium
  • Alloy

His primary scientific interests are in Composite material, Alloy, Phase diagram, CALPHAD and Microstructure. His study in Composite material focuses on Electron backscatter diffraction, Aluminium, Grain boundary, Die casting and Grain size. His study in Electron backscatter diffraction is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Strain rate and Transmission electron microscopy.

His work carried out in the field of Alloy brings together such families of science as Slip, Scanning electron microscope and Ultimate tensile strength. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Extrusion, Texture and Eutectic system. He has included themes like Metallurgy, Viscosity, High entropy alloys and Intermetallic in his Phase diagram study.
