Personal profile


Dr Samuel Chao Voon Lim research interest involves the process-microstructure-properties relationship of metals particularly that of light-weight metals such as Ti, Al and Mg alloys. His research generally investigates the processing/deformation effect on microstructure and texture evolution and mechanical properties. The processing of the metal studied covers bulk-forming for aerospace and automotive applications and micro-forming for electronic and possible biomedical applications. He has interests as well in studying new technologies for the processing and forming of metallic material and composites such using Additive manufacturing or even solid bonding routes like accumulated roll-bonding etc.      

Besides the above-mentioned research interest, Dr Samuel Lim has significant experience in collaborating with industrial companies to assist them in bringing the research from fundamental research (TRL1-3) to the applied level (TRL>5).
