Advanced Manufacturing and Materials

Descriotion of Advanced Manufacturing and Materials group

Researchers in Advanced Manufacturing and Materials (AM2) investigate the properties and performance of engineering materials processed by advanced and sustainable manufacturing integrated in circular economy. Starting point in modern production at AM2 is digital data, generated and optimized.

Research methods encompass multiscale and multiphysics modelling, mechanical and microstructural testing with digital measurement and quality control techniques. Among the applications in green processes and methods, special emphasis goes to hydrogen influence in materials for safe energy applications, new sustainable friction-based manufacturing solutions and additive manufacturing.

We, at AM2, actively integrate our researchers in innovative solutions for materials, manufacturing and digital tools, promoting the transference of patenting and know-how into their start-ups, while celebrating success.

AM2’s Profile:

Team: 3 Full Professors + 3 Associate Professors + 1 Professor of Practice + 1 Adjunct Professor + 1 Emeritus Professor + 2 Teachers + 9 Laboratory Technical Staff + 20 to 30 Researchers = Total of 40 to 50 staff members

Infrastructure: AM2 has world excellency equipped laboratories, namely the ADDLAB to research all additive manufacturing techniques, and hydrogen influence in materials and. Excellency of laboratories also in non-destructive testing, advanced manufacturing (with casting, welding and bulk metallic glasses), microstructural characterization and mechanical testing with digital image correlation

Education: 22 Courses in Bachelor/Master/Doctoral education programmes that benefit from the Integration of laboratory exercise work + Seminars
