Sheffield Titanium Alloy Research (STAR) is a group of academic staff and students studying alloy development, thermomechanical processing, and machining science of several alloy systems, with a focus on titanium.

The group is led by Professor Martin Jackson and is based in the

We have strong industrial links with several industries, including aerospace, automotive, and cutting tools. Many successful collaborative research projects have been done with companies such as Rolls-Royce, Boeing, Sandvik Coromant, TIMET and SAFRAN Landing Systems. Our researchers regularly publish novel research in high quality journals and present at major international conferences.
