Abstract

The Center for Advanced Non-Ferrous Structural Alloys (CANFSA) is a National Science Foundation industry/university cooperative research center that focuses on the physical metallurgy of non-ferrous engineering alloys and systems. It was created based on the historical decline in physical metallurgy research funding, which has resulted in a dramatic decrease in the number of students pursuing a career in this field. This trend has greatly reduced the synergies that previously existed between faculty, students, and the non-ferrous industries, and has potentially weakened the U.S. dominance of industries that rely on these interactions.
