Kacey is a member of Michael Mills' group. His project involves exploring the mechanisms involved in crack initiation and growth under several conditions, with a particular interest in cracks caused by creep and dwell fatigue loading conditions. Electron backscatter diffraction and transmission electron microscopy methods, among others, are employed on a variety of titanium alloys to better understand these phenomena.

Pictured is a fracture surface of a Ti-7Al specimen caused by failure under a dwell fatigue loading condition. Examination can be done directly on the fracture surface, as well as from foils extracted from different facets of interest.
