Research on engine materials
The automotive industry constantly has to adapt to new requirements on sustainability and engine efficiency. Therefore, there is a continuous development to optimise the engine components regarding the geometry, processing and material selection. My part in this is to evaluate the existing and new potential materials for engine components, as well as developing methods to predict the lifetime of materials in these applications. Foremost, we are striving to improve the design process so that testing can be done with the help of simulations as opposed to real-life component testing.
