Kristin Qvale is an expert in energy absorption and fractures in aluminium components, such as the crash boxes in cars. The key to knowledge lies in the microstructures. Any change here affects the whole component’s behaviour.
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.
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.
Miguel Costas Appointed as Associate professor at SIMLab. Thus, the group strengthens its activities within the design and modelling of aluminium structures.
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.
They are ultralight, excellent energy absorbers, and they may save your life. This brilliant mix of properties explains why polymer foams play the leading role in Daniel Thor Morton’s doctoral dissertation.
Because he can simulate how atoms behave when aluminium is deformed, Jonas Frafjord knows better than most that the devil is in the details.
The weakest adhesive John Fredrick Berntsen has studied in his doctoral dissertation is strong enough to lift a 1 500 kilos car with a bonded area of only 3×3 centimetres.
MSc students Magnus Pjaaka Torp and Håkon Frydenberg study polymeric coated pipelines and their ability to withstand sudden impact.
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.
Chronicle. CASA´s director Magnus Langseths raises some crucial questions in The Norwegian Business Daily.
Mikhail Khadyko heads north again. This time as an associate professor.
SFI CASA has established its very first commercial spinoff. The new company is called «Enodo».
It is a challenge to work closely with industry on the one hand and do basic research on the other.
