Optimization of industrial processes in the process and manufacturing industries (mining, wood, paper, tooling, etc.) is the focal point of research in Process IT performed at Luleå University of Technology.
Materials Science is about research in High-performance steel for e.g., the automotive industry; Wood and bio composites as replacements for plastic in composites; and Tribology where friction and wear are studied to find ways of reducing energy consumption and increasing the working life of mechanical components. This video showcases research in Materials science at Luleå University of Technology.
Video only available in Swedish
A film about the research at LTU regarding processes in the mining industry and continuous improvement of the whole production line.
Tribology is the science of surfaces in sliding or rolling contact and include friction, wear and lubrication. The word comes from the Greek tribo, meaning rubbing.
