Sondre Bergo loves equations. That passion helps him closer to the goal of predicting the exact moment when fractures occur in ductile metals.
Companions? Competitors? Or both? SFI CASA´s director Magnus Langseth raises questions on the cooperation model between NTNU and SINTEF.
«The allocation of research funding is worth its weight in gold to the company. It provides predictability», according to entrepreneur Jens Kristian Holmen.
Due to Covid-19 this years ICILSM conference had to be postponed. Now, the new dates are set to 13-17.June 2022.
CASA’s researchers reach out to many more as technical meetings and seminars are now just a click away.
«To receive an ECR means a lot to me. It tells me that my work is recognised for its quality and importance», says Postdoc researcher at CASA, Emil Christiansen.
Save the dates. Here is the tentative plan for virtual seminars, technical meetings and PhD examinations.
«I believe that it is not typical for a research group to reach its hands so far out to industry, as CASA does», says Arjan Strating.
Enjoy some CASA moments. Here is a small visual summary from spring 2020.
Randi Holmestad blogs on pioneering work with Electron Microscopy as The 2020 Kavli Prize honours 4 scientists for breakthroughs in nanoscience. Holmestad is Professor in physics at NTNU and head of research programme Lower Scale at SFI CASA.
A short time before scheduled laboratory tests for their Master’s theses, 4 students working with steel structures at SIMLab had to leave campus because of Covid-19. Now, two months later, NTNU is cautiously reopening and allowing them back in the lab to complete their experiments.
Andria Antoniou was to leave Grenoble to start working as a postdoc at SFI CASA on 16 March, but Covid-19 locked her up in France.
When a shiny new car model is rolling off the factory floor, it is also a compact example of research with high utility value. Recently, vendors in car-dealer Møller Bil got a presentation on how scientists at SFI CASA contribute to ever safer vehicles.
Glass is brittle. When it breaks, it happens suddenly and unexpectedly. It is precisely this unpredictable and violent behaviour that attracts the interest of SFI CASA´s Jonas Rudshaug.
SFI CASA´s Ruben Løland Sælen started on his PhD studies on 3D printed polymers in August 2019. The yearly revenues in the global market for such materials are expected to grow from $10 billion to $20 billion by the time he defends his thesis.
Take a closer look at this photo. It sums up how the coronavirus put its mark on Ole Vestrum’s defence of 4 years of doctoral work.
A lucky side effect of the polymeric coatings on steel pipelines is that they also work as bumpers at great water depths. PhD candidate Ole Vestrum has found a new way to model how they react when hit by mooring lines, falling anchors or fishing trawls.
