Newsarticle about CHS in "Ny Teknik"
On March 26, 2020, The paper "Ny Teknik" published an article on Centre for High-performance Steel and the new project PROCHAIN.
This work has focused on study of the Quenching and Partitioning (Q&P) process by assessing involved mechanisms, microstructure and mechanical properties, aiming at an acceleration of phase transformation rate to shorten the process time in addition to improving properties in service to the industry.
The electrification of heavy transport is one of the driving forces behind a new EU project coordinated by Luleå University of Technology in collaboration with, among others, Scania. The goal is to create a lightweight truck design using warm formed steel, which leads to more efficient transports since the trucks can take more load.
Solid Mechanics is a classical engineering subject, which historically played a major role in the development of industry and infrastructure. Today it is a modern discipline, which in interaction with related research areas is the prerequisite for function and strength of present and future advanced structural materials and mechanical components.
Frontier research in tribology through investigation of lubrication, friction and wear. Friction and wear cause problems such as high energy consumption and production stops in industry. Tribology researchers at Luleå University of Technology strives at seeking answers to these tribological challenges to enable development of new products and processes.
