Abstract

This project aims to obtain funding from FAPESP for the professor Dr. Emilio Rayon Encinas, of the Universitat Politècnica de Valencia, Spain, to visit the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, UNICAMP, in the period from 4 to 27 August 2014. Dr. Emilio Rayon Encinas is a specialist in the nanoindentation technique and has published 14 scientific articles in high impact journals after 2010, all dealing specifically with the nanoindentation technique and its use in the characterization of various materials for use in engineering. Your visit will contribute research projects of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, UNICAMP, involving the obtaining and modification of titanium alloys for use as structural parts and biomedical implants. In these projects, the nanoindentation technique is used to determine hardness and elastic modulus at the nanometer level. (AU)
