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.
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.
Because he can simulate how atoms behave when aluminium is deformed, Jonas Frafjord knows better than most that the devil is in the details.
What happens inside a material before it breaks and fails? How do deformations and cracks occur, and how do they propagate?
«To receive an ECR means a lot to me. It tells me that my work is recognised for its quality and importance», says Postdoc researcher at CASA, Emil Christiansen.
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.
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.
