Starting with studies of equilibrium phase diagrams, thermal ageing and external stress induced phase transformations in Zn-Al based alloys were investigated. Complex non-equilibrium phase transformations in various processes were also studied. Intrinsic phase relationships between equilibrium and non-equilibrium of alloys under thermal ageing and external stresses were summarized, which provides theoretical bases to research and develop advanced processes, such as laser processing, mechanical alloying, ultra-precision cutting, electropulsing etc. for surface materials science and thin films of alloys and functional semiconductors.
Yaohua Zhu graduated from North-Eastern Univ. of China in 1965, He got his PhD in 1983, and was conferred Doctor of Science in 2006, at Aston University, UK. He has over 114 peer reviewed articles and four books published. His recent research interests focus at electropulsing induced phase transformations in alloys and thin films of semiconductors.
