By a systematic study of the relations between coating characteristics/their performance on forming tools,optimised coatings will be developed to enhance the reliability and technical possibilities of cold forming processes.
Aims to develop a class of new mortars based on mortar 'portland + inert' and combined to different kinds of resins polymerising 'in situ' with improvement of some mechanical characteristics of concretes.
Development of new types of coatings to be applied to extrusion tools for bricks and tiles. This will increase the life of tools, improve the efficiency of the extrusion process and thus reduce the associated costs.
The use of new, low cost processing agents in polymer processing as a way of reducing flow instabilities. This will improve the quality of the parts made and will increase the rate of production.
Development of a parallel kinematic machine based on 3 linear motions. As linear motors, the three ones of a 3-axis cnc milling centre are used. Project includes also the elaboration of an off-line programming /simulation software for various multi-axis cutting processes.
The target is the manufacturing of efficient aluminium (al) engines, cylinders, disc wheels, etc. The substitution of automobile steel parts with corresponding ones manufactured using al will be investigated.
To compare various techniques that involve joining components, and to investigate the possibility of applying these advanced processes with a focus on the jewellery industry.
Electa is a web tool based on the electoral policies of the political parties represented in an election. After processing the answers given to a questionnaire completed by a voter, it advises them of their political preference.
Develop software tools for interactive delivery of tourism database entries, and managing a gps-based (global positioning system) mobile phone-integrated multimedia database.
There are two main challenges: 1. To become sustainable by reducing resource consumption, managing transport and utility networks in a sustainable way, reducing environmental and man-made impacts, improving safety and security and protecting cultural heritage; 2. To become a demand-driven sector.
