Because he can simulate how atoms behave when aluminium is deformed, Jonas Frafjord knows better than most that the devil is in the details.
Sindre Olufsen’s efforts to understand the deep interior of polymers can improve the safety of everything from cars to planes, and perhaps even heart valves.
The weakest adhesive John Fredrick Berntsen has studied in his doctoral dissertation is strong enough to lift a 1 500 kilos car with a bonded area of only 3×3 centimetres.
What happens inside a material before it breaks and fails? How do deformations and cracks occur, and how do they propagate?
Sondre Bergo loves equations. That passion helps him closer to the goal of predicting the exact moment when fractures occur in ductile metals.
«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.
CASA gets down to the second half of the SFI period. It is time both to sum up and to adapt for the future.
By extensive use of experiments, Susanne Thomesen uncovers the secrets of aluminium. The inside information fills in the big picture under construction by Toppforsk project FractAl.
Media interest: There have been several media reports on SFI CASA lately.
New knowledge on how to predict the behaviour of elements impossible to see with the naked eye.
What happens deep inside aluminium when the material is bent and pulled to fracture? Emil Christiansen knows.
Chronicle. CASA´s director Magnus Langseths raises some crucial questions in The Norwegian Business Daily.
Petter Holmström’s fresh PhD thesis brings good news to every industry which moulds fibre-reinforced thermoplastics for withstanding extreme loads.
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 significant.
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.
