Dr. Aranas is the Director of the Alloy Design and Materials Testing Research Laboratory (AD-MTRL) in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of New Brunswick. His major research contribution is in the understanding of the dynamic phase transformation in steels during thermomechanical processing. He developed a thermodynamic model to understand and predict the high-temperature mechanical behavior of steels. His current research interests include (but not limited to) alloy development, mechanical testing, additive manufacturing of metallic materials, high-speed deformation testing (dynamic, subsonic, supersonic and hypervelocity) and thermomechanical processing of both ferrous and non-ferrous alloys. He is presently designing and developing the next generation and energy efficient advanced high-strength materials at UNB.

The research laboratory would like to acknowledge the support from Flexihub software, which provides the researchers a remote access to the USB license keys of the programs available in the laboratory. The details of their services and USB over IP solution can be viewed at flexihub.com.
