Overview


Dr. Andrii Kostryzhev graduated with a Diploma of Engineer (MSc) and Candidate of Science Degree (PhD) in “Processes and machines of metal forming” from the National Metallurgical Academy of Ukraine in 1998 and 2002, respectively. In 1996-1998 he held a prestigious Scholarship of the Parliament of Ukraine for the undergraduate students. In 2000-2003 he was awarded a Grant of the Government of Ukraine for young scientists to expand his research. During 2001-2005 he served as a Professor’s Assistant and then Lecturer in Engineering Mechanics at the same University. For achievements in research and teaching the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine awarded Andrii the title of Docent (equivalent to Senior Lecturer) in 2005. In the same year he was awarded the Oversees Research Student Award from “Universities UK” and joined the School of Metallurgy and Materials, University of Birmingham, UK, for the post-graduate research program, where he obtained a PhD degree in “Materials Science and Engineering” in 2009. During 2009-2011 he was a Research Fellow at Birmingham Centre for Railway Research and Education, UK. Since 2011 he is a Research Fellow at the University of Wollongong, Australia. In 2016 Materials Australia conferred on Dr Kostryzhev the title of Certified Material Professional.
During entire 20-year career he contributed to many University-Industry collaborative R&D projects in the roles of main investigator, fellow or consultant. His expertise has been covering the following areas of engineering: process technology (alloy design, casting, rolling, forging, welding, heat treatment, additive manufacturing, physical modelling in Gleeble), microscopy (optical, scanning and transmission electron, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy), microstructure development (chemical analysis, grain structure recrystallization, phase transformations, particle precipitation, dislocation structure), mechanical testing (hardness, tensile, impact, fatigue, fracture, wear resistance, acoustic emission monitoring, ultrasonic and electromagnetic sensors), analysis of the microstructure-properties relationships.
In various historical periods his R&D works were actively supported by Nizhnedneprovsky Tube Rolling Plant and Research Institute of Tube Industry (Ukraine), Tata Steel Europe (former British Steel, UK), Network Rail (UK), Bluescope Steel (Australia), CBMM (Brasil), Bisalloy (Australia). Andrii has published near 80 science journal and conference papers and 1 patent in the Russian and English languages and is a frequent reviewer for 17 international journals. Currently he is working on novel wear resistant steels, very high strength low carbon steels (up to 1GP of the yield stress) and additive manufacturing of Ni alloys.

Impact Story


  • Research and development of the process of cold cross rolling of thick walled tubes resulted in a Patent on new technology, filed jointly with a private manufacturing company who intended to implement the patent.
  • Development of alloy compositions and processing technology for new wear resistant and very high strength steels for Bluescope and Bisalloy.
  • My mathematical modelling of force and energy parameters in the process of hot cross rolling of seamless tubes made of 18Cr-10Ni steel facilitated risky industrial trials with loading forces approaching the maximum capacity of equipment.
  • Following the success of laboratory trials, the industrial partner decided to invest in development of the full scale system.
  • <p>Research results have been warmly accepted by the industry partner who directed additional funding to the University to continue research in this area.</p>
