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.
The YouTube channel for Norwegian SciTech News has released a short video-version on the KPN SLADE project.
After 2 years of postponement, SFI CASA is ready to host the next International Conference on
Impact Loading of Structures and Materials -ICILSM 2022. The event takes place in Trondheim, 13-17 June.
Accurate and reliable modelling of debris exposure by hypervelocity is a challenging task. SFI CASA’s new doctoral student Rannveig Marie Færgestad will spend the following years working on models crucial to ensure safety and sustainability in space.
Politicians from the Labour Party got a tour and several live demos on how SIMLab works with physical security.
New PhD candidate: When the chance came, Øystein Eirik Kvist Jacobsen happily accepted the offer of a doctorate at CASA. Here is a brief presentation on what will keep him busy for the next few years.
Heavy storms can cause steep and violent waves slamming into platforms and offshore wind turbines.
SIMLab’s Rene Kaufmann measures the pressure and deformations from such massive loads – to improve safety at sea.
The battery is the heart of an electric car. Therefore, maximum protection of this core component is the number-one priority for car manufacturers. Watch the video on how our research makes electric cars safer.
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.
CEO of Hydro ASA, Hilde Merete Aasheim, recently got a quick course in how the close collaboration with CASA leads to competitive advantages for the aluminium company.
New knowledge on how to predict the behaviour of elements impossible to see with the naked eye.
Ingvil Smines Tybring-Gjedde got a crash-course in how CASA contributes to increased societal security.
