Pure aluminium is a very soft metal, not suitable for any kind of structural use. To make it stronger, some kind of alloying elements are always used.
Stainless steel is expensive. What if you could get the same user qualities more cheaply by combining a stainless surface with a conventional steel substrate using a surface modification technique? David Embury shares a peek into a new world of hybrid and architectured materials.
Judging by industry and public interest in her subject, Karoline Osnes has brilliant prospects. In a few years she will know more about the behaviour of glass in explosions than most people on the planet.
At the Marine 2015 Conference in Rome in June, post doc Martin Kristoffersen from NTNU presented his research on X65 steel pipes subjected to combined stretching and bending. Here’s the abstract:
Potentially, a hundred years of student labour is available to the partners in SFI CASA at NTNU. Toyota has caught the essence. They’ve got help twice already.
If you’re grateful for Magnus Langseth’s scientific contributions, say thank you to his wife. She stopped him from taking over the family farm. What she hasn’t done, is take the hunter out of him.
Maximal expertise on how and where nuts and bolts fail can obviously be of critical importance. Here’s an abstract of a presentation by PhD candidate Erik Løhre Grimsmo in one of SFI CASA’s internal seminars recently.
On one hand, SFI CASA is brand new. On the other, the partners can start using loads of scientific findings right from the start. Here’s the SIMLab Tool Box for you.
The folks at SIMLab know better than anyone how aluminium grains behave under attack. Because of that, they decided that brand new SFI CASA needs expertise on atomic level. Randi Holmestad’s expertise.
CASA PhD candidate Vegard Aune presented some serious shock treatment of aluminium at the 11th International DYMAT Conference in Switzerland last week.
