Welcome to the Sieradzki Research Group

The Sieradzki group examines fundamental issues in electrochemical surface science and fracture of solids. These topics are connected by our long standing interest in the phenomenon of stress-corrosion cracking. The stress corrosion problem is very complex and involves mechanics issues related to the ductile/brittle behavior of solids as well as dynamic fracture. Electrochemical aspects of the stress-corrosion problem involve dealloying and the resultant evolution of bi-continuous nanoporous morphologies and the mechanical properties of these structures.
