New wrought mg alloys with enhanced energy absorption will be developed. The properties of mg sheet-metals for body protection against hit, stab and ballistic threads will be guaranteed by thermodynamic-based alloy design and novel processing techniques. Weight reduction will be assured.
The microstructure and properties of adi parts depend on composition, as-cast microstructure and phase transformation kinetics. These parameters must be optimised to ensure the required properties. The project is aimed at the development of adi, treatment and simulation to optimize its manufacturing
An in-pipe hydroelectric turbine operates in a special environment surrounded by water and is different from traditional hydro turbines. Here we investigate the best technology for the high head closed pipe waterworks in the italian alps and similar locations, build, and test units on site
Transmission of multiple description encoded video via satellite using variable modulation and coding scheme in optimized way, its reception by both new and legacy receivers, and video content reconstruction for end user devices with various capabilities with the best quality possible.
To obtain detailed knowledge of trochoidal milling of titanium and inconel alloys, to develop optimised tools and coatings for this cutting process and to generate improved tool paths for 5 axis trochoidal milling in order to sustainably increase the material removal rate.
The development of autonomous smart systems integrating innovative lightweight batteries coupled with solar cells to drive distributed auxiliaries as courtesy leds lighting and ventilation fans able to increase comfort and fuel economy for both fully electrical and internal combustion
To fully develop the industrial technology for designing and producing special dies for the extrusion of profiles from magnesium alloy of high strength, suitable for structural and energy applications
Project consortium will research aerodynamic conditions related to induced drag of sail and design the induced drag inhibiting device for minimisation of the negative effect of the induced drag - flow of air particles from high pressure area to low pressure area over the lower edge of the sail
