Nanoscale Design of Materials

 

Dr. Charles Kuehmann is a leader in the field of computer-aided systems design of materials. As a founding member of QuesTek Innovations, he has directed the development of advanced gear and bearing steels, ultra high-strength steels, and ferritic superalloys using Thermo-Calc, DICTRA and other custom thermochemical and kinetic models. He directed the applications of these tools to achieve improvements in strength, toughness, corrosion resistance, fatigue, hydrogen resistance, and magnetic properties by the Materials by Design® method. Dr. Kuehmann holds a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from Northwestern University.
