Welcome to the Division of Engineering Materials!
In line with the Linköping University goals, the work within our division is based on three keystones: Education, Research and Industry collaboration.
We are giving courses at both basic and advanced levels to around 400 engineering students each year. Since material science is a practical subject we combine theoretical studies with hands-on exercises within our laboratory. All our courses contain laboratory works such as material testing, hardening methods, microscopy etc.
Courses vt2 2013:
Today we have two main research areas: High temperature materials and Residual stresses. High temperature materials such as Ni-based superalloys, ceramic coatings and austenitic stainless steels are used in gas turbine and power plant industry. Residual stresses can be measured by X-ray diffraction and by introducing residual stresses in truck components, fatigue life can be improved.
In each of our research projects there is a strong industry collaboration. The work is performed in close contact with companies such as Sandvik Materials Technology, Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery, Sapa Technology, Volvo Aero and Scania.
If you are interested in our courses, master thesis or some kind of collaboration; please contact us!
