Mechanical properties of metallic materials

Johan Moverare is a professor in Engineering Materials at the Department of Management and Engineering. He is leading the research group in mechanical properties of structural materials.

The research is often carried out in an interdisciplinary way involving advanced mechanical test methods, high-resolution microscopy of deformation and damage mechanisms as well as material modelling of the observed phenomena. Johan Moverare has close links to parts of the Swedish industry and is very open for industrial co-operations. In addition to an academic career Johan Moverare also has industrial experience and has been working full time for 10 years as a specialist at Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery AB.

Main research interests:
  • Thermomechanical fatigue of high temperature materials
  • Mechanical properties and material modeling of engineering materials
  • Effects of in-service degradation on mechanical properties
  • Relationship between processing, microstructure and the mechanical properties of engineering materials
  • Superalloys 
  • Additive manufacturing
