Introduction of Division of Advanced Metallic Materials (AMM)

The activities of the division of advanced metallic materials are focused on studying the structure and properties of metallic materials including topics in surface engineering. The complex philosophy of the division is enabled by the interdisciplinary character of the laboratories and use of newest knowledge and technologies in education as well as in basic and applied research or in cooperation with industrial partners.

The electron beam technology, heat treatment of metallic and composite materials, thin and bulk coating applications and subsequently developed technologies as cold spray technology compose the core of research activities of the Section of Advanced Material Technologies.

Techniques for structure and phase analysis for metallic and non-metallic materials are being developed together with local mechanical properties studied by indentation methods by the Structure of Phases Section.

In the mechanical tests area, the properties characterisation and evaluation of material response during quasistatic loading in tension, compression and bending; during dynamic loading at low and high-cycle fatigue at different temperatures is studied by the Design and Mechanics of Materials Section.

With the support of the Department of Solid Mechanics and the Department of Mathematics the interdisciplinary Section of Micromechanics and Materials Modeling is oriented on theoretical work and computation support of design of materials and micromechanics studies of materials.
