Development of a forging and rolling technology for nickel-based alloys. Small and large crankshaft forging technologies will be optimized using numerical simulation support.
Ledeburitic steels prepared using the rapid solidification effect, as well as those with the addition of ceramic particles, will be developed. The coating of final steel and hard materials will be investigated.
Investigation into pulsatory forming technology including generator of pulses development and description of the influence of pulses on material will be provided. This technology will be applied to industrial production.
Creation of a platform to stimulate r&d/technology transfer dealing with laser/optics technologies/their applications, e.G. In processing industries, in order to initiate projects emphasizing cooperation between industry/r & d instititions.
Creation of new systems as original tools to enhance existing and develop new techniques/products in metallurgy with higher service properties at comparatively low production costs and verification of them.
The aim of the project is to prolong the life-time of p/m ledeburitic steel tools by upgrading the tool material and applying various surfacing techniques.
Develop a system to make welders certicates more effective and improve distribution and access to the certificates through the internet. Also including information about the european welding federation education scheme.
Design of new methods of the production of very pure steel based on 26nicrmov145. New forming and thermomechanical treatment technologies for this material will be also developed. The assumption is to produce devices for power plants from the new developed material.
Selection of micro-alloying additions combined with optimal forming and heat treatment conditions will be used to enhance end-use properties of steel products: forgings, sheets, strips and tubes.
The aim is to design and develop precast fire resistant concrete elements using industrial waste materials.
