Sometimes, polymer layers develop microvoids that can cause leakage. The underlying mechanism resembles crazing and is a mystery to the industry. Now, the phenomenon is under investigation in the project STIP (2020-2023) led by the company Enodo AS, a spinoff from SFI CASA.
For nearly four decades, researchers from NTNU and the Norwegian Defence Estates Agency have built a unique partnership, protecting people and property.
Post-doctor and polymer expert Sindre Nordmark Olufsen leaves Casa to take up a new position in Freyr Battery Norway. «The years in SFI CASA have been fantastic», he says.
Kristin Qvale is an expert in energy absorption and fractures in aluminium components, such as the crash boxes in cars. The key to knowledge lies in the microstructures. Any change here affects the whole component’s behaviour.
Marcos Fernandez’s research brings us closer to that day when physical tests become history. His efforts also pave the way for safer cars, planes, ships, and other structures.
SFI CASA hosted The International Conference on Impact Loading of Structures and Materials, ICILSM 2022 from 14 to 17 June.
SFI CASA´s PhD candidate Rannveig Færgestad talks about the challenges in space in a new podcast from the Technological Weekly.
Luca Lomazzi went from Politecnico di Milano to blast metal plates in the SIMLab Shock Tube Facility this winter. Upon leaving, he said, «I bring home loads of new experimental data. Plus, a new way of using Machine Learning».
They are incomprehensibly small but have a significant impact on the safety of aluminium structures. Dr Asle Joachim Tomstad pinpoints the importance of primary particles.
Honor and glory to Rannveig Marie Færgestad, who has received the Norwegian Industrial Forum for Space Activities (NIFRO) prize for the best space-related master’s thesis.
SFI CASA’s Vegard Aune is among the 25 carefully selected participants in NTNU’s next Outstanding Academic Fellows Programme. The scheme aims to accelerate the international career of the university’s top talented young researchers
Within a few days this spring, 30 blast loads detonated inside one of the Norwegian Defence Agency’s test facilities. Behind the destruction lies CASA and NDEA’s shared goal to understand more of what happens during close-range blasts in confined spaces.
SFI CASA was one of the selected places to visit when the Standing Committee on Education and Research visited NTNU on 4 April.
Master´s student Einer Herrem´s great interest in cars has led him to destroy 21 windshields. The aim is to model how the safety glass behave under impact.
Aluminum makes our modern lives work. Sigurd Aune’s PhD work could help things work even better.
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.
