Background and activities

Alexei Vinogradov is a professor at the Department of Engineering Design and Materials since January 2016.  Educated in solid state physics, he has a Ph.D in physics and mathematics from A.F.Ioffe Physical-Technical Institute of the Academy of Science of Russia and Dr. Eng. degree from Kyoto Univeristy, Japan. Before taking the postion at NTNU he has held academic positions in Japan (1992-2011) and Russia (2011-2015)  


Research Interests

  • Mechanical behaviour of materials, strength and plasticity, fatigue, corrosion and environmentally assisted fracture, strain localization and non-linear phenomena and non-equilibrium thermodynamics of plastic deformation.
  • Advanced materials (design, manufacture, characterization and modelling) – bulk nano-structured and ultra-fine grain materials, magnesium alloys, severe plastic deformation, high strength structural materials.
  • Acoustic emission and non-destructive testing and characterization for failure prevention, advanced signal processing, intelligent monitoring systems.
