Hero-m 2i

The Hero-m centre at KTH is one of 15 VINN Excellence Center that VINNOVA and participating partners have started during 2007.  

Within the Hero-m centre the performance of industrial relevant materials will be determined through engineering design on different length scales. The most important scientific challenge is to determine the relation between structure and properties from fundamental principals instead of empirical methods that are mostly used today. The most important challenge from an engineering perspective is two-fold; one is to improve the fundamental methods and adjust those to industrial needs the other one is to use these methods in order to develop materials in an industrial environment. Large Swedish companies in the material area, i.e. steel and tools for metal cutting manufacturers, as well as specialized software companies and small entrepreneurial firms are engaged in the centre.


 

News & Events  

Annual Hero-m 2i Workshop

Venue: Rönneberga, Lidingö
Date: 13-14th of May 2019

Seminar

”Precipitation in duplex stainless steels”

by Niklas Holländer Petterson
Venue: Kuben, MSE KTH
Date: 17th April
Time: 14:00

Seminar

”Flow and softening phenomena during hot working of steels”
Thermomechanical processing – that is using elevated temperature deformation as a tool to engineer microstructure – continues to be one of the most industrially important techniques for controlling the properties of ferrous alloys. This presentation will review modern approaches to analysis of microstructure and texture evolution during hot working of advanced high strength steels and specialty alloys, including physical simulation, modelling, and novel techniques such as in-situ microstructure quantification using laser induced ultrasound.
