PhD candidate Benjamin S. Elveli works with steel and a long-standing dilemma in materials science, namely the trade-off between strength and ductility.
Accurate and reliable modelling of debris exposure by hypervelocity is a challenging task. SFI CASA’s new doctoral student Rannveig Marie Færgestad will spend the following years working on models crucial to ensure safety and sustainability in space.
Politicians from the Labour Party got a tour and several live demos on how SIMLab works with physical security.
Miguel Costas Appointed as Associate professor at SIMLab. Thus, the group strengthens its activities within the design and modelling of aluminium structures.
New PhD candidate: When the chance came, Øystein Eirik Kvist Jacobsen happily accepted the offer of a doctorate at CASA. Here is a brief presentation on what will keep him busy for the next few years.
Watch how the researchers at SINTEF Ocean and SIMLab works to improve safety at sea.
Heavy storms can cause steep and violent waves slamming into platforms and offshore wind turbines.
SIMLab’s Rene Kaufmann measures the pressure and deformations from such massive loads – to improve safety at sea.
According to PhD candidate Jianbin Xu, a bumpy bike ride is comparable with understanding the Portevin-Le Chatelier effect in some metallic materials.
They are ultralight, excellent energy absorbers, and they may save your life. This brilliant mix of properties explains why polymer foams play the leading role in Daniel Thor Morton’s doctoral dissertation.
“It was a very inspiring visit. We need more results from research, in line with what CASA has achieved,” said Henrik Asheim after his digital visit to the center.
SIMLab is part of Statsbygg’s innovation project on developing a new type of movable vehicle security barriers. The barriers will protect the new Government Building Complex in Norway.
The battery is the heart of an electric car. Therefore, maximum protection of this core component is the number-one priority for car manufacturers. Watch the video on how our research makes electric cars safer.
Enjoy some moments from the experiments performed by SIMLab Master´s students in the spring of 2021.
Space enthusiast and MSc student Rannveig Marie Færgestad is working on her dream thesis at SFI CASA. Her aim is to simulate what happens when orbital debris hits a spacecraft.
One of this spring´s MSc projects is «Projectile impact on plain and reinforced concrete slabs».
Here, of course, you will find the usual stuff of objectives and goals, facts and figures, projects, publications and annual accounts. But there is more.
SFI CASA and SIMLab was part of the Norwegian Parliament’s debate on societal security 9. March. Unfortunately, the recommendation to establish a national centre for physical security was not passed
