Dr Mark Wenman

Dr Wenman's interested in the study of materials for nuclear energy generation. His key areas of research interest are in the use of modelling at microscales (including finite element and peridynamics), plasticity behaviour, micromechanisms of fracture, stress and strain measurement and atomic scale modelling of nuclear fuel material. He is currently using the finite element method to investigate pellet-clad interactions in nuclear fuels and the influence of plasticity models on residual stress predictions. The latter is focussed on ferritic steels that show both the Bauschinger effect and yield point phenomenon.He also has projects in understanding hydrogen embrittlement of metals for nuclear applications, including micromechanistic studies of stress corrosion cracking of stainless steels, and delayed hydride cracking and corrosion of zirconium alloys.
