FORMLAB

FORMLAB was a NTNU-project at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering and the Department of Engineering Design and Materials.

The project started in 1999 and stopped in 2001/2002. It had the following objectives:

  • to build up a forming lab.
  • to drive research and education within forming.
  • to establish a new creative environment and culture for creative thinking on forming processes ("tomorrow's" processes).
  • to increase the knowledge within forming.
  • to establish a national ressource centre within forming, integrated with process- and alloy development.
  • to be a tool for multidisciplinary teamwork.

This activity is still running at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. It is also linked to the Severe Plastic Deformation SPD activity.
