Project Title: 
The development of criterions for slip transfer across grain boundary in the context of finite element simulations for the application of cyclic loading
Project Abstract: 
I will be traveling to the University of Glasgow from April 25 to May 9, 2016, to start a collaboration with Dr. Euan Wielewski’s and Dr. Andrew McBride’s group. The collaborations will be used to examine the roles that micromechanical models have on the evolution of the deformation of a metal during cyclic loading, and how this leads to a material breaking. My work with Dr. McBride will ensure that I head in the proper direction with my thesis. The collaboration with Dr. Wielewski offers the opportunity for our groups to work on a multitude of cyclic loading projects together.
