Personal profile

Biography

Dr Vit Janik is a Senior Lecturer in Materials, Mechanics and Measurement at Coventry University. Vit joined Coventry in July 2017 after spending five years at WMG, University of Warwick as Research Fellow in Materials Characterisation. In 2008 during his PhD study at the Czech Technical University in Prague he was awarded the EU Science and Technology Fellowship China and joined School of Materials Science and Engineering, Shanghai Jiaotong University, China. As a postdoctoral researcher he participated in Key Hi-Tech Research and Development Program of China and won China Postdoctoral Foundation award to study Elevated temperature behaviour and creep resistance of Mg-RE alloys. Vit obtained MEng (Dipl. Ing.) in Materials Engineering in 2005 and PhD in Materials Engineering in 2009 both at the Czech Technical University in Prague, Czech Republic.

As a Research Fellow at WMG, University of Warwick, Vit worked on EPSRC project “Micro-structuring micro-alloyed steels via non-metallic precipitate formation”. He investigated interphase precipitation during austenite to ferrite transformation and its role on strengthening and ductility of XPF800 ferritic high strength automotive steels. Vit wasa core member at WMG of the materials light-weighing theme within Innovate UK High Value Manufacturing project CATAPULT. Two of his further projects on automotive high strength formable steels were selected by CATAPULT centre at WMG as “High Impact Show-Case Studies”.

Research Interests

Physical metallurgy and characterisation of engineering metals and alloys. Control of the microstructural response of materials during thermal and thermo-mechanical processing to improve materials strength and formability. Development of characterisation methods to monitor transient stages of processing of advanced high strength steels and light alloys. Fundamentals of formability of engineering materials.

Vision Statement

Silicon gives us computers and with them data, iron gives us machines and with them mobility. My vision is to infuse data and knowledge of the Silicon Age into the processes and materials coming from the Age of Iron. A revolution in the way how we visualize materials occurred during Silicon Age. Thanks to the Silicon Age we can now see metallic materials under the microscope behaving like an organic material, growing, transforming, deforming, or relaxing under our eyes. The fact that we can measure the transient stages during materials processing allows us to design new materials to significantly increase their performance. This will lead to renaissance of Iron, steel and metals and alloys.
