CASA’s experts on ballistic impact and their fellow researchers at partner Norwegian Defence Estates Agency investigate the ballistic perforation resistance of concrete slabs. Watch Martin Kristoffersen´s presentation on YouTube.
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.
PhD candidate Benjamin S. Elveli works with steel and a long-standing dilemma in materials science, namely the trade-off between strength and ductility.
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.
SIMLab is part of Statsbygg’s innovation project on developing a new type of movable vehicle security barriers. The barriers will protect the new Government Building Complex in Norway.
Space enthusiast and MSc student Rannveig Marie Færgestad is working on her dream thesis at SFI CASA. Her aim is to simulate what happens when orbital debris hits a spacecraft.
Key scientists, members of the Scientific Advisory Board, and the Chair of SFI CASA´s Board are ranked among the World’s 2 per cent best researchers.
According to CASA’s director Magnus Langseth, the Norwegian government’s new white paper on societal security is full of challenges. Recently, he shared his views with the Standing Committee on Justice.
CASA’s researchers reach out to many more as technical meetings and seminars are now just a click away.
Andria Antoniou was to leave Grenoble to start working as a postdoc at SFI CASA on 16 March, but Covid-19 locked her up in France.
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.
MSc students Magnus Pjaaka Torp and Håkon Frydenberg study polymeric coated pipelines and their ability to withstand sudden impact.
Christian Oen Paulsen went by way of gold to bring our understanding of steel one step further.
If SFI CASA´s partners were asked to make a wish-list, some of them might put a validated material model for concrete on top.
Professor Aase Gavina Reyes has left the CASA building, at least for some time.
“This has been a most useful and exciting visit,” said State Secretary Gjermund Hagesæter after spending a whole day at SFI CASA last month.
