OF ADVANCED MATERIALS
The main objective of the Institute of Physics of Materials of the Czech Academy of Sciences (IPM, AS CR) is to clarify the relationship between the behaviour and properties of materials and their structural and microstructural characteristics.
fesults of research of fatigue lifetime of railway axles with high service reliability and safety were presented on 53rd meeting of the Academy Assembly of the Czech Academy of Sciences (CAS). The cooperation between BONATRANS GROUP, a. s. and IPM CAS, led to development of new methodology for reliable lifetime prediction of railway axles.
Mgr. Milan Heczko from the Institute of Physics of Materials (IPM) has been awarded the Thermo Fisher Scientific & Czechoslovak Microscopic Society fellowship for the support of scientific work of young researchers.
