Organisationsprofil

The general aim is to conduct research and education in materials engineering and science. Materials engineering bridges the traditional boundaries between the disciplinary areas of materials physics, materials processing, and materials science. This interplay between disciplines creates a catalytic environment conductive for the encouragement of materials research.

One of the key ways materials development may be achieved is to synthesise proper materials, whose properties can be controlled by tailoring their microstructure and to develop a direct link and a closed loop between processing and fabrication of materials on one hand, and material characterisation and simulation on the other.

In addition, theoretical modelling supports the achievement of these objectives. Through theoretical modelling, experimental and computational aspects are considered simultaneously in order to build a bridge across length scales.

Nanostructured materials are in focus due to their superior functional and structural properties. Special emphasis is on creation of nanocomposites, such as nanoparticle-filled polymers or nanotube-filled polymers. These have enhanced the fundamentally new and controllable engineering performance, including significantly increased strength, thermal stability, toughness, and reduced flammability.

Competences

  • Mechanics of materials
  • Nanocomposites
  • Mesomechanics
  • Closed loop between processing/fabrication and materials characterisation
  • Polymers, polymer based composites, metal alloys, ceramics and microcellular materials

Facilities

The education and research relies on a well equipped laboratory with state of the art instrumentation within a number of fields, and well equipped conventional laboratories. Specialised staff operates, maintain and supervise the use of the laboratory facilities.
