More about the project

The project's main aim is to increase the general understanding of how the commercial operational life time of a metallic structure can be affected, by the use of optimised controlled manufacturing engineering processes such as material specifications, forming, joint bevelling, joining and machining in combination with the structures actual operative thermal and mechanical boundary condition.

This will provide unique novel approximation opportunities of the operational lifetime of complex metallic structures. All in all for the sake of increasing the project's industrial partners' commercial competiveness.

The project is part of the research in the Mechanical Engineering research group.
