Advanced materials characterization and modeling

Our ability to develop improved or new materials and processes relies to a large extent on the experimental and theoretical research tools that are available. These tools are necessary in order to describe and understand the relationship between the structure and composition of a material, its processing parameters and its properties. They are also often used to understand why materials degrade and/or fail in service.

Production of Ferroalloys (i.e. Ferrosilicon/Silicon- and Ferromanganese) is a strong and significant land-based industry in Norway. The results from the cooperation between the industry and academia (SINTEF/NTNU) in Norway are basic knowledge regarding thermodynamics- and kinetic-data as well as reaction mechanisms within core processes and environmental issues.

Status inspection of power lines

Power lines represent approx. half of the new value investment within the power distribution grid. In high voltage distribution grids and master grids, power line failures represent by far the major cause of losses and costs. The challenge for the power distributor is to adopt methods which are able at an early stage to identify potential threats in the form of reduced capacity and lifetimes, and to exploit the opportunities for timely initiatives, investments and knowledge application.
