Major award for Hydrogen in metals project (HEmS)

Alan Cocks, Professor of Materials Engineering at the Department, has recently been awarded a £5.5 million grant from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) to investigate the process of ‘embrittlement of metals from hydrogen’. The ‘Hydrogen in metals - from fundamentals to the design of new steels’ (“HEmS”) project, led by Professor Cocks, is a collaboration with the Department of Materials at Oxford and the universities of Sheffield, Cambridge, Kings College and Imperial College London. Potential applications for the results of the research are envisaged across a wide range of key UK industries.
