What happens inside a material before it breaks and fails? How do deformations and cracks occur, and how do they propagate?
Glass is brittle. When it breaks, it happens suddenly and unexpectedly. It is precisely this unpredictable and violent behaviour that attracts the interest of SFI CASA´s Jonas Rudshaug.
A lucky side effect of the polymeric coatings on steel pipelines is that they also work as bumpers at great water depths. PhD candidate Ole Vestrum has found a new way to model how they react when hit by mooring lines, falling anchors or fishing trawls.
MSc students Magnus Pjaaka Torp and Håkon Frydenberg study polymeric coated pipelines and their ability to withstand sudden impact.
CASA gets down to the second half of the SFI period. It is time both to sum up and to adapt for the future.
Our craving for daylight has accelerated the use of glass in modern constructions. However, for those concerned about safety, our passion for the light comes with a dark side.
