Dr. Paul Follansbee, James F. Will Professor of Engineering Science at Saint Vincent College’s Herbert W. Boyer School of Natural Sciences, Mathematics and Computing, and Aaron E. Stein, a May 2016 graduate of Saint Vincent College, are co-authors of an article, “Analysis of Deformation in a High Entropy Alloy Using an Internal State Variable Model,” published in the June 21 issue of Materials Sciences and Applications.

“Deformation in a model high entropy alloy is assessed using an internal state variable constitutive model,” the authors explain. “A remarkable property of these alloys is the extraordinarily high strain hardening rates they experience in the plastic region of the stress strain curve. Published stress-strain measurements over a range of temperatures are analyzed.”

Stein, who earned a bachelor of science degree with highest honor in engineering science, is a graduate student at the University of Pittsburgh’s Swanson School of Engineering where he is pursuing a master of science degree in materials science and engineering. The paper was his senior capstone research project.

Materials Sciences and Applications (MSA) is an international journal dedicated to the latest advancements in materials. The goal of the journal is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share and discuss various new issues and developments in different areas of materials sciences and applications.

The article is available at the Scientific Research Publishing website,
