Inauguration of TMTEST

Published: 1 March 2017

The new lab environment TMTEST was inaugurated at the Department of Materials Science, Luleå University of Technology. It is a new national infrastructure for research in thermal-mechanical materials testing and simulations.

Associate Professor Farid Akhtar at Luleå University of Technology is responsible for the investment, and he had invited experts from both academia and industry to the inauguration. Vice-Chancellor Johan Sterte made an introductory speech and then the guests got to see the new equipment which is the latest in materials testing and process simulation. Both academic and industrial partners will have access to it.

In addition to the demonstration of the new testing environment TMTEST (thermo-mechanical and tribology infrastructure) there was also a workshop on high temperature properties of materials.

Below are previous articles about the new thermomechanical and tribology infrastructure which is funded by the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research, SSF, Kempe foundations and the LTU lab fund.
