Investigation of Hardening Behaviour of Platinum Alloys
Supervised by A/Prof C Lang and sponsored by The Innovation Fund, Muneeba's work explores the hardening of Platinum alloys with alloying. Pure Pt is too soft to be used for jewellery purposes; it is often alloyed with other metals to increase its hardness. Hardening platinum increases its potential uses in the jewellery. The hardening behaviour of platinum copper as a result of ordering will be investigated.
