Benjamin Georgin is a graduate research assistant in the Center for the Accelerated Maturation of Materials at The Ohio State University. He obtained his Bachelors in Materials Science and Engineering from OSU in 2016. Ben researches powder metallurgy net-shape manufacturing of nickel-base superalloys for aerospace applications. He specifically focuses on improving high temperature creep rupture and fatigue performance in hot isostatically pressed (HIP) turbine blades and disks.
In his research, Ben uses advanced characterization equipment and techniques to study the formation of prior particle boundaries (ppbs) in HIP components. The characterization techniques include low energy scanning electron microscopy, focused ion beam, and transmission electron microscopy to investigate powder stock, bulk microstructural development, and defect formation. Ben is also interested in HIP for functionally graded bimetallic materials and has experience in characterizing microstructural development in additive manufactured and linear friction welded titanium.
