I want to see steel!

Since the turbo manifolds used by Scania must withstand hard conditions with high temperatures, corrosion and loading the mechanical properties are of utmost importance. These properties are related to the microstructure of the material. The steel microstructure shown above is studied in detail with electron microscopy because of its carbides and we aim to understand if cracks follow the path of the carbides or another … Continue reading “I want to see steel!”

CorrosionFatigueCreep. New project! New people!

Scania and KTH have recently initiated a new project named CorrosionFatigueCreep. This means that the lab is in use again and that the truck manufacturer Scania can continue its research within the field of high-temperature materials at KTH. The group aims to investigate the deformation mechanisms creep and fatigue under the influence of corrosion. Moreover, the lab is being upgraded … Continue reading “CorrosionFatigueCreep. New project! New people!”
