How can we minimize the risk of electric vehicle batteries catching fire? How to design maximum safe vehicle security barriers? And how can we utilize 3D-printed components in protective structures? See the list of this years Master´s projects.
In a new study, SIMLab and NDEA-researchers have used an alternative numerical technique to model ballistic impact on laminated glass. Watch Post doctor Karoline Osnes´s presentation at the 13th International DYMAT Conference.
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.
Many users choose a glass design after testing 30 samples. Possibly worrying fact: you may need thousands of tests to get statistically trustworthy results.
