Materials Design and Structural Integrity
- Fatigue Mechanisms of Engineering Materials (e.g., High-Strength Steel, Cast aluminium alloys, welded Al alloys, adhesive joints)
- Numerical Modeling of High-Temperature Corrosion Processes
- Powder-metallurgy-processed nanostructure aluminum alloys
The Institute for Materials Design and Structural Integrity is working on the identification of damage mechanisms that limit the service life of engineering metallic materials: fatigue, creep and corrosion in various environments. Currently, 15 researchers are working mostly in third-party funded research projects in close collaboration with industrial enterprises. Almost constantly, students and visiting researchers from abroad are supporting the work of the institute.
