It is a challenge to work closely with industry on the one hand and do basic research on the other.
Imagine a Virtual Lab were physical crash tests are made history. If you are a car manufacturer, savings could be hundreds of million euros a year.
When Tore Wisth started at NTNU, professors were gods. The thing is, gods are helpless in the lab. They don’t know how to weld or machine or mill. They need expert help.
Associate Professor Ida Westermann has a bun in the oven. Don’t worry. She knows how to bake. Even aluminium.
What qualities make students honour the same professor again and again for being the best educator? Meet Arild Holm Clausen.
For 20 years, the SIMLab research group at NTNU and their colleagues at LMT-Cachan in France have collaborated closely. For many reasons. Ahmed Benallal is one of them.
On top of a hill in Verdal lies a farmhouse with the most spectacular view of the valley below. It is the home of Odd-Geir Lademo, head of CASA’s Methods and Tools Programme.
Confused? Good. In real life, mustard and honey goes on top of the salmon loin when SFI CASA Professor Aase Reyes prepares dinner. The polymer foam stays at work.
Every time a cardiac valve closes, the heart wall vibrates from the impact. Erik Løhre Grimsmo knows. He studied the phenomenon for his master’s degree. Now he’s into steel. Much of the theory is the same.
For more than three decades, Arnfinn Jenssen was an invaluable friend and ally of what is now the SIMLab research group. He passed away on 14 April at the age of 86. To honour his memory, we republish the article about him from SFI SIMLab’s 2012 Annual Report.
With thorough insight in aluminium, automotive industry and anti-terror, it’s hard to imagine a better match for SFI CASA than SINTEF’s new CEO Alexandra Bech Gjørv.
Judging by industry and public interest in her subject, Karoline Osnes has brilliant prospects. In a few years she will know more about the behaviour of glass in explosions than most people on the planet.
If you’re grateful for Magnus Langseth’s scientific contributions, say thank you to his wife. She stopped him from taking over the family farm. What she hasn’t done, is take the hunter out of him.
The folks at SIMLab know better than anyone how aluminium grains behave under attack. Because of that, they decided that brand new SFI CASA needs expertise on atomic level. Randi Holmestad’s expertise.
