Structural Integrity and Reliability of Advanced Materials obtained through additive Manufacturing

In spite of the growing importance of Additive Manufacturing (AM) technology for producing both plastics and metals parts used in different fields such as aeronautics, biomechanics and automotive, the criteria and methods for the safety evaluation of AM components are still not well established. Therefore, the lack of knowledge on the influence of the material quality on the load bearing capacity of the final product hinders the industrial exploitation of AM, preventing this powerful technology from being confidently used in every-day manufacturing processes, in particular in low developed European countries. The overall objective of the SIRAMM project is to significantly strengthen research in the AM field at the Polytechnical University of Timisoara (UPT, Romania). To achieve this aim, SIRAMM will build upon the existing science and innovation base of UPT, creating a network with two internationally-leading counterparts at EU level: Norwegian University of Science and Technology (Norway) and the University of Parma (Italy). In the long term, the project aims at laying the foundations for creating a pole of excellence on AM in Eastern Europe. For this reason, other two partners from low R&I performing countries, the University of Belgrade (Serbia) and the Institute of Physics of Materials, Academy of Sciences (Czech Republic) will also take part in this Twinning project. To reach its goals, this 3-year project will be focused on the implementation of knowledge transfer activities such as workshops and staff exchange, training events (i.e. summer schools, seminars) for early stage researchers, and dissemination and communication actions (i.e. web site, videos, open access publications, public engagement activities) for different audiences. To keep maintaining the knowledge transfer well beyond the duration of this project, a regular master course on AM technology will be also implemented in the coordinating institution.

International mobility of employees of IPM

Project is focused on strengthening and development of international cooperation mainly by junior scientists at the Institute of Physics of Materials of the Czech Academy of Sciences. The implementation of the project will contribute to the strengthening of cooperation with the significant research organizations, their scientists and management. Due to project implementation is expected higher publishing activities and the involvement of the institution into the preparation and solution of international projects.


Research and development of casting technology of thermally affected parts of aircraft engines and highly precise casts of new generation of turbochargers

The project introducing advanced technology of precision casting of thermally affected parts of aircraft engines and castings of axial wheels of turbochargers. The reliability and long service lifetime of the casting is determined by the tolerance of the material to surface defects that may occur during operation. In the project, we will look in more depth at the relationship between material structure, surface defects and fatigue and creep damage evolution.


Architectured materials designed for additive manufacturing (ArMAdit)

This project is based on computational design and gradual optimization of parameters of architecture of two or more metallic materials which considers their extreme loading including real operating conditions. Preparation of those architectured materials requires use of Cold Spray technology and multi-material selective laser 3D printing (SLM, Selective Laser Melting), or a combination of both.


New Composite Materials for Environmental Applications (NKMEA)

The objective of the project, which includes three partial research intents, is a pre-application research in the area of development, preparation, optimisation and testing of application of special composite materials that are capable of detecting, respectively removing, dangerous materials in water, air, ground and industrial plants. These special materials will allow increase in quality of life, safety for inhabitants and attractiveness in the city of Ostrava. The application sphere and various safety units can use the results of the project.


Modernization of Infrastructure for the Study and Application of Advanced Materials (m-IPMinfra)

The project focuses on modernisation of the research infrastructure IPMinfra with equipment necessary for comprehensive study of material (mainly long-term) properties of advanced materials. At the same time, the project will support the research activity and its quality at IPM. The modernised and competitive equipment can be expected to contribute to intensified co-operation with leading research institutions, increased publication activities and more engagement to international projects.
