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
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
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.

Study of the use of pure magnesium powders for the preparation of biodegradable materials
Štúdium využitia čistých horčíkových práškov pre prípravu biologicky odbúrateľných materiálov
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.

Influence of transverse and longitudinal road unevenness on a whole-body vibration of driver/passenger in a motor car
Vplyv priečnych a pozdĺžnych nerovnosti vozovky na celotelové vibrácie posádky motorového vozidla
Program: VEGA
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
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.
