The 2021 Annual Report is ready for download. New stories, new profiles, new summaries, and new photos. Plus, the usual stuff of facts and figures, projects and publications, cooperation and annual accounts.
Research Scientist Anette Brocks Hagen at SINTEF have a fascination for deformation and failure in materials. She delves deep to reveal precisely why and where they occur, and now she is preparing to share news on some exciting findings.
How can we minimize the risk of electric vehicle batteries catching fire? How to design maximum safe vehicle security barriers? And how can we utilize 3D-printed components in protective structures? See the list of this years Master´s projects.
The YouTube channel for Norwegian SciTech News has released a short video-version on the KPN SLADE project.
Karoline Osnes is one of the CASA researchers who has recently changed jobs. She now works at CASA’s partner Multiconsult. Fortunately, the collaboration with the Centre continues, as she has been appointed Associate Professor II.
After 2 years of postponement, SFI CASA is ready to host the next International Conference on
Impact Loading of Structures and Materials -ICILSM 2022. The event takes place in Trondheim, 13-17 June.
Some people have been busy blowing up composites for aircraft structures in the SIMLab Shock Tube Facility lately. Their urge to destroy may make your future flights safer.
Kinga Somlo knows more than most about how the smallest building blocks in metals affect the behaviour of readymade products.
This video shows that neither this year’s pre-Christmas turned out quite as we had planned. Now it is crucial to stay patient for a while longer, keep calm and take care of each other. We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy 2022!
Equinor and Gassco collaborate with SFI CASA on testing full-scale steel pipelines from the Johan Sverdrup field in the North Sea. Several dynamic tests will be performed during the following weeks.
He has impressed his students with outstanding pedagogical skills. Now, they have honoured Odd Sture Hopperstad for his exceptional efforts to convey advanced and theoretical knowledge in a rewarding and understandable way.
PhD candidate Victor André presented a novel approach to mechanical joint modelling at this year’s LS-DYNA conference.
SFI CASA-researchers shared a wide variety of news with global industry players at the LS-DYNA conference.
SFI CASA´s new PhD candidate Håvard Næss aims to make numerical simulations more accurate concerning plasticity and fracture. Without increasing the computational and calibration costs.
CASA’s experts on ballistic impact and their fellow researchers at partner Norwegian Defence Estates Agency investigate the ballistic perforation resistance of concrete slabs. Watch Martin Kristoffersen´s presentation on YouTube.
In a new study, SIMLab and NDEA-researchers have used an alternative numerical technique to model ballistic impact on laminated glass. Watch Post doctor Karoline Osnes´s presentation at the 13th International DYMAT Conference.
Associate Professor Vegard Aune´s research evolves around severe blast loading events. At the 13th International DYMAT conference recently, he shared new insight on the underlying physics of extreme blast-structure interaction. Read about it – and watch the video on coupled simulation.
