CONTEXT - European Network to connect research and innovation efforts on advanced Smart Textiles

Európska sieť na prepojenie oblasti výskumu a inovácií v pokročilom inteligentnom textile

Duration: 11. 10. 2018 - 10. 10. 2022
Program: COST
Project leader: Ing. Opálková Šišková Alena PhD.
Annotation: CONTEXT COST Action objective is to create a network of European researchers and main relevant stakeholders in order to develop joint ideas and initiatives which can be turned into advanced smart textile products. A smart textile material is a “functional textile material, which interacts actively with its environment, i.e. it responds or adapts to changes in the environment”. They find applications in all sectors and especially in health and medical; automotive and aeronautic; personal protective equipment; sports and wearables and buildings and interior design. Although several R&D projects have been carried out during last years in that field, most of the prototypes obtained haven’t reached the market due to many reasons such as: product reliability, production economies, missing a demonstrated use case and/or value proposition. In that sense, what CONTEXT aims is to ignite research and innovation projects (with high TRLs output expected) by joining under the same network and through Working Groups, people with the right competencies and experiences from the academic and research fields, the industrial sector and from clusters. CONTEXT will promote the development of a joint research roadmap for smart textiles, will foster the transfer of knowledge among different actors in order to find suitable applications in various multidisciplinary fields, will act as stakeholder platform to identify needs and requirements from different points of view in a bottom-up approach and will promote networking activities in order to attract talent, build more and better research projects with more consciousness on the objectives of creating exploitable results. In this multilateral project, Institute of materials and machine mechanics SAS is focused on the use of materials from renewable resources for the purpose of preparation a metal matrix composite with enhanced physical and/or mechanical properties. Due to the increasing problems with waste and environmental pollution, the main idea of the proposed project is the use of cellulose-based waste for the potential preparation of reinforcing phases or predefines structures such as textiles. The project will aim to verify the possibilities of processing the prepared carbon materials by conventional technologies for the production of composite materials, pressure infiltration and powder metallurgy. The emphasis will be on the complex characterization of the properties of the intermediates products and prepared composites, which will enable the identification of the most suitable areas of possible applications.

CERTBOND - Reliable roadmap for certification of bonded primary structures

Reliable roadmap for certification of bonded primary structures

Duration: 4. 4. 2019 - 3. 4. 2023
Program: COST
Project leader: Ing. Nagy Štefan PhD.
Annotation:With the increasing pressure to meet unprecedented levels of eco-efficiency, aircraft industry aims for superlight structures and towards this aim, composites are replacing the conventional Aluminium.The same trend is being followed by civil, automotive, wind energy, naval and offshore industry, in which the combination (or replacement) of steel with composites can increase the strength-to-weight ratio. However, the joining design is not following this transition. Currently, composites are being assembled using fasteners. This represents a huge weight penalty for composites, since holes cut through the load carrying fibres and destroy the load path. Adhesive bonding is the most promising joining technology in terms of weight and performance. However, its lack of acceptance is limiting its application to secondary structures, whose failure is not detrimental for the structural safety. In primary (critical-load-bearing) structures, fasteners are always included along bondlines, as “back-up” in case the bond fails. The main reasons for this lack of acceptance are the limited knowledge of their key manufacturing parameters, non-destructive inspection techniques, damage tolerance methodology and reliable diagnosis and prognosis of their structural integrity. The Action aims to deliver a reliable roadmap for enabling certification of primary bonded composite structures. Despite the motivation being aircraft structures, which is believed to have the most demanding certification, it will directly involve other application fields in which similar needs are required. This Action will tackle the scientific challenges in the different stages of the life-cycle of a bonded structure through the synergy of multidisciplinary fields and knowledge transfer.

Povlakovanie povrchu práškovo metalurgického titánu pôsobením elektromagnetického žiarenia a pracovnej atmosféry, štúdium mikroštruktúry a vybraných vlastností povlakov

Duration: 1. 1. 2020 - 31. 12. 2022
Program: VEGA
Project leader: Ing. Kováčik Jaroslav PhD.
Annotation:The project deals with the possibility of surface treatment of titanium, which was prepared from titanium powder by low temperature methods of powder metallurgy. It is envisaged to use an energy beam of electromagnetic radiation incident on the surface of the PM titanium either in the form of laser beam or in the form of focused solar radiation. When heated under the working atmosphere, the reaction of titanium with oxygen or nitrogen molecules is assumed and coatings based on oxides, nitrides or their mixtures are expected to be formed. Subsequently, the microstructure and selected properties of the prepared coatings will be studied. The aim is to explore the possibilities of surface treatment of PM titanium, depending on future applications, to prevent surface damage during friction, to improve the surface for biocompatibility and to increase corrosion resistance of PM Ti, which are the most important reasons for surface treatment of usual titanium components.

On the creep properties of powder metallurgical Al-Al2O3 composites by small punch testing method.

Štúdium creepových vlastnosti PM Al–Al2O3 kompozitov pomocou small punch testing metódy

Duration: 1. 1. 2020 - 31. 12. 2022
Program: VEGA
Project leader: Ing. Krížik Peter PhD.
Annotation:The main aim of this project is studying the creep behavior and determining the creep properties of ultrafine-grained (UFG) Al composites stabilized by nano-scale Al2O3 produced by powder metallurgy (PM), which belong to HITEMAL group, using a small punch test (SPT) method. HITEMAL has been proven for its exceptional thermal stability and mechanical properties at elevated temperatures not normally associated with use of conventional Al alloys and composites. By variations in PM consolidation approach applied in the project various HITEMAL materials with different Al grain structure, and different content, distribution, crystal structure and morphology of in-situ Al2O3 component will be manufactured and used for testing. An emphasis of SPT studies will be put on the following: 1) to elucidate the effect of Al2O3 component on a creep behavior; 2) to determine the effect of Al grain structure on creep behavior; 3) to compare the creep properties measured by SPT with those obtained by standard tensile test

Study of the use of pure magnesium powders for the preparation of biodegradable materials

Štúdium využitia čistých horčíkových práškov pre prípravu biologicky odbúrateľných materiálov

Duration: 1. 1. 2019 - 31. 12. 2021
Program: VEGA
Project leader: Ing. Čavojský Miroslav PhD.
Annotation:The project is focused on the study of the possibility of preparation and characterization of biodegradable material on the base of Mg powders with controlled degradation rate. Magnesium-based materials made from ingots have poor mechanical properties and rapidly in the corrosive conditions. As an alternative is to produce the material from Mg powders which can significantly enhance the properties. Powder metallurgy (PM) is a modern method of processing where specific mechanical properties are achieved due to high purity, material structure and controlled porosity. The degradation rate being controlled by surface treatment of powders prior to compaction, or by admixture of a suitable biocompatible material with the healing effect. The material will be prepared by the direct extrusion method, while examination of the effect of the produced native oxides on the extrusion parameters will be necessary. Mechanical and corrosion properties will be examined and in vitro bioassays will be performed.

Project leader: Ing. Múčka Peter CSc.
Annotation:The project is aimed at the experimental determination of the dependence between the parameters of the transverse and longitudinal unevenness of the road and the ride comfort of the driver/co-driver in a motor vehicle. Parameters of the measurement group will be the type and technical condition of the vehicle, the vehicle speed, the road category and the level of longitudinal unevenness. Measurements unique to their range of test sections and of experiment variables will be realized. The aim will be to determine the dependence between the parameters of the transverse and longitudinal unevenness and the whole-body vibration of the vehicle crew. An unevenness indicator using the transverse and longitudinal unevenness parameters will be proposed to take into account the crew-induced whole-body vibration. The results could make a contribution to increasing ride comfort, ride safety and decision-making on the operational capability of communication.

MAG3DP - Research of additive manufacturing of biodegradable magnesium alloys and their applications in implantology and regenerative medicine

Výskum aditívnej výroby biodegradovateľných magnéziových zliatín a ich aplikácie v implantológii a regeneratívnej medicíne

Duration: 1. 7. 2018 - 30. 6. 2022
Program: APVV
Project leader: doc. Ing. Škrobian Milan CSc.
Annotation:Nowadays, the current trend in implant production using additive technologies respectively 3D printing is the application of biodegradable or partially degradable materials, that promote osteoinduction and osteoconduction while allowing minimization of surgical procedures. One of the alternative in this field is the use of magnesium alloys that have sufficient mechanical properties, controllable biodegradability, and are transparent for postoperative medical diagnostics as CT and MRI. The main objective of the project is to develop magnesium alloys in the form of powders, with complete elimination of negative properties described in publications such as fast corrosion rate and therefore degradation of material, with release of undesirable hydrogen. At the same time, an SLM additive production machine will be technically adapted for the processing of highly reactive magnesium and its alloys for additional production of samples for further material, mechanical and biological testing. In the final phase of the project, two types of implants will be made from developed alloys. Temporary substitutions of hard tissue, respectively osteosynthetic apparatus in the role of bone support with complete degradation function - biological degradation of the material without the need for reoperation in the form of screws for the area of orthopedics. The research team has an ambition to produce permanent implants with a partial degradation of material and biointegration of the surrounding tissue for neurosurgery and maxillofacial surgery from developed alloys. In the final phase of the project, it is planned to prepare preclinical and clinical experiments as a phase of initiatial application of developed alloys in the form of medical devices into clinical practice.
