AMPERE – Aluminium alloys with Mechanical Properties and ElectRical conductivity at Elevated temperatures

The overall objective of AMPERE is to establish a scientific basis that allows designing alloys and processing schedules to yield optimum combinations of mechanical properties and electrical conductivity at elevated temperatures (in-service conditions), and a methodology that can be used to support related mechanical product design. This will be achieved through enhanced fundamental understanding of the correlation of material microstructure, mechanical properties and electrical conductivity and the influence of elevated temperature and time.

The research partners are NTNU and SINTEF and the industrial partners Hydro, Hydro Extruded Solutions (former SAPA), Nexans, Raufoss Technology Neuman and Gränges.
