Research project

 

  • Characterization of surface states after mechanical surface treatments and their stability under thermal and cyclic loading
  • Development of appropriate test facilities to conduct lifetime estimation and fatigue crack propagation measurements at elevated temperature in the LCF range
  • Development of a model for lifetime prediction in dependence of the residual stress and the strain hardening state based on fracture mechanics
