Metalbeams is a network with the aim of keeping the metal industry R&D departments up to date with activities in the area of neutron and synchrotron based research and in the broader sense facilitate the use of these large-scale facilities. For the third consecutive year the network hosts a seminar in association with Metalliska Material's annual meeting in Stockholm.
Program for 11 March:
10.00 Welcome to the Metalbeams spring seminar (Rachel Pettersson, Jernkontoret)
Introduction to the seminar and Metalbeams activities.
10.10 Industrial use of large-scale facilities - examples
Representatives from industry tell their success stories on how large-scale facilities can be used to answer industrially relevant research questions.
- Phase transformation and precipitate formation during heat treatment and welding of stainless steels (Jan Y Jonsson, Outokumpu Stainless)
- Characterization of residual stresses at sheared, milled and laser cut edges in martensitic steels (Sven Erik Hörnström, SSAB)
- Using synchrotron tomography for in situ study of cast irons (Peter Skoglund, Scania och Torsten Sjögren, RISE)
- In operando XPS of the Mg assisted Al2O3 break-up process (Lars-Åke Näslund, Gränges)
11.10 The METALSF project (Peter Hedström, KTH)
Information about a project on Education and Community building regarding large-scale facility R&D for metals
11.25 Vinnova's funding activities for industrial engagement in large scale n/x infrastructure
(Maria Öhman, Vinnova)
A short update from Vinnova.
11:35 Ideas from n/x-experts
Experts from Swerim (Tuerdi Maimaitiyili and Konstantin Simonov) and RISE (Emanuel Larsson and Shun Yu) give a brief presentation on their ideas on how to address key challenges identified in last year's workshop and invite further discuss these ideas during lunch
