Project

Computertomograph/Zerstörungs

Project

Mar 2004 - Feb 2009
In the proposed project 7 degree programs of the College of Engineering, Wels will cooperate with 11 companies and 6 research institutions on new processes in non-destructive and particularly on in-situ characterisation of materials, components and complex systems such as the fuel cell. For this purpose a computer-tomography X-ray scanning machine (CT) hitherto not available in Austria will be acquired and the corresponding infrastructure built up. Non-destructive characterisation of materials and components represents a key process in product and process development as well as in the processing and treatment of materials.
The aims of the project are
• state-of –the art degree program content by participation in cutting-edge research projects
• achievement of critical mass in R+D with regard to personnel, organisation, equipment and scientific knowledge.
• the creation of a completely new line of R+D research in the field of non-destructive material characterisation (X-ray computer tomography) and the fuel cell, particularly for SMEs in the region. This will create a new network for Austria involving competence centres and universities both in Austria and internationally.
• tripling at least of the R+D funding by third parties of the college in Wels and acquisition of at least 5 international projects in the realisation phase.
• achievement of USPs
The technological content of the project is as follows:
• systematic investigations of the construction, faults and defects in composite materials (e.g. fibre-reinforced plastics for the aviation industry), advance ceramics (e.g. for electronic engineering or the fuel cell) and new types of metal alloys (e.g. light metal foam and thixalloy)
• understanding of structural changes, defect spreading and growth caused by stress in materials and components
• carrying out of in-situ ageing and failure analysis on fuel cells and other complex systems.
• generation of comprehensive knowledge about methods and applications in non-destructive materials characterisation (e.g. X-ray CT).
The 2-year development phase is characterised by acquisition and set-up of a technically unique and scientifically sophisticated combination of equipment, carrying out of test runs and projects at the cutting edge of technology as well as by the building of a network of companies and research institutions. The financial contribution from companies (332,500 euros) represents 17, 6% of the total project cost. It is an aim to considerably exceed the level of the agreed benchmark projects.
In the 3-year realisation phase the emphasis will be on international state-of-the-art research in selected areas (e.g. in-situ investigations of the fuel cell). The financial contributions already pledged by companies (889,500 euros) represent 57,2% of the project total. The College of Engineering, Wels will benefit in the long term from this project because it’s partners will substantially improve their products by it and increase their long-term innovation capability.
