Hello everyone, I have a request. Can someone please provide me with a metallurgy research design template? I'm starting my 5th year in a MSE PhD program and for the last 3 years my advisor has instructed me to perform experiments on my alloy without reason. And while I thought this was weird because I should've studied the microstructure before wasting material on experiments, I trusted his instructions because he's the professor and I'm the student adjusting to a new major. Now, after all of this, he is saying it's not good enough. So, instead of wasting more of my time doing a "1 page dissertation statement" with his very vague requests, I would prefer to clearly design my future research to blend with my current work in a logical manner. In addition, he himself doesn't know what he wants in this "dissertation statement". I greatly appreciate any help you can give me.
