New ceramic technologies and innovative devices and multifunctional ceramic structures, 23 september 2015 


On September, 23 the consortium CERMAT2 met in the Representation of the European Region Tyrol-South Tyrol-Trentino for the mid-term review of the project.

The CERMAT2 project aims to train young researchers in understanding the modelling of Solid Mechanics problems applied to the process and design of advanced ceramics in a synergic collaboration between academia and industry, in view of social developments related to enhancement of industrial production and pollution reduction. The objective will be pursued by a training-through-research methodology focused on:

1. improvement of processes related to ceramic powder compaction and design of ceramic pieces;

2. fundamental understanding of the behaviour of granular and composite materials;

3. development of multifunctional ceramic materials and structures.

The CERMAT2 network involves five Academic Institutions (UNITN specialized in Solid Mechanics, with expertise on ceramics; RUT specialized in Computational and Experimental Mechanics and Processing; UoL specialized in Applied Mathematics; AU specialized in Mathematical Modelling; BU specialized in the application of Inverse Analysis theory to material characterization) and three Technology and Production Units (CEREL, a productive unit of an applied research institute, specialized in developing ceramic materials and manufacture technologies; ES, a SME operating in the field of Computer-Aided-Engineering, Virtual Prototyping, process simulation and optimization of design and production processes; VESUVIUS, a SME part of the VESUVIUS group present around the world, manufacturer of ceramics, refractory products, and flow control systems).
