CANFSA Overview

The Center for Advanced Non-Ferrous Structural Alloys (CANFSA) is a National Science Foundation (NSF) Industry/University Cooperative Research Center (I/UCRC) at the Colorado School of Mines and Iowa State University. Our focus is on non-ferrous physical metallurgy and improved performance of structural alloys of interest to industry and government partners by integrating advanced processing, state-of-the-art characterization, theory and modeling.
