Associate Professor Vegard Aune´s research evolves around severe blast loading events. At the 13th International DYMAT conference recently, he shared new insight on the underlying physics of extreme blast-structure interaction. Read about it – and watch the video on coupled simulation.
PhD candidate Benjamin S. Elveli works with steel and a long-standing dilemma in materials science, namely the trade-off between strength and ductility.
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.
In France, earthquake and depressurization effects are considered as a reference accident when engineers design the interior of nuclear power plants. That explains why french researchers subjected fuel rods to severe shockwaves in SIMLabs shock tube recently.
National Public Radio (NPR) and BBC World Radio recently visited SFI CASA´s Shock Tube Facility.
