PhD Candidates Jens Kristian Holmen and Lars Edvard Dæhli both put aluminium alloys to the test in their contributions to the 21st European Conference on Fracture in Catania, Italy next week. Here are the abstracts:
An SFI that doesn’t help industry isn’t an SFI; a simple fact and a real challenge. That’s why CASA has established an Industrial Reference Group. At the helm: Audi’s Arjan Strating.
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.
Marion Fourmeau, who defended her PhD at SFI SIMLab in 2014, has been awarded the James Clerk Maxwell Writers Prize for 2015. The prize is awarded by Philosophical Magazine and Philosophical Magazine Letters. Along with
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.
How do you find the path to optimal solutions? You ask. In SFI CASA’s technical meeting 1-3 March, the partners will see their own answers to questions on the programmes Industrial Implementation and Structural Joints.
Norwegian hotel tycoon Arthur Buchardt thinks the new government headquarters in Oslo should be wooden. Two months ago the world’s tallest wooden building was completed in Bergen. It is 51 metres tall, has 14 storeys
Bullet proof windows don’t help much if the whole building comes down on you: Obvious? Sure, and one of the classic dilemmas facing the people who plan the new government headquarters in Oslo.
SFI CASA Professors Odd Sture Hopperstad, Tore Børvik and colleagues have just received a 30 million NOK Toppforsk grant to investigate new ways of designing aluminium structures against failure.
Pure aluminium is a very soft metal, not suitable for any kind of structural use. To make it stronger, some kind of alloying elements are always used.
Stainless steel is expensive. What if you could get the same user qualities more cheaply by combining a stainless surface with a conventional steel substrate using a surface modification technique? David Embury shares a peek into a new world of hybrid and architectured materials.
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.
At the Marine 2015 Conference in Rome in June, post doc Martin Kristoffersen from NTNU presented his research on X65 steel pipes subjected to combined stretching and bending. Here’s the abstract: “Subsea pipelines
At the Marine 2015 Conference in Rome in June, post doc Martin Kristoffersen from NTNU presented his research on X65 steel pipes subjected to combined stretching and bending. Here’s the abstract:
Potentially, a hundred years of student labour is available to the partners in SFI CASA at NTNU. Toyota has caught the essence. They’ve got help twice already.
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.
