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:
- improvement of processes related to ceramic powder compaction and design of ceramic pieces;
- fundamental understanding of the behaviour of granular and composite materials;
- development of multifunctional ceramic materials and structures.
This project has received funding from the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no PITN-GA-2013-606878.
