SIMLab - Structural Impact Laboratory
Nobody knows better how materials and structures react to impact than SIMLab, Structural Impact Laboratory.
Decades of research and unique lab facilities have made the group world-leading. Experiments interchange with modelling and simulations, if necessary down to nanoscale.
Research started on steel. In due course, aluminium, polymers, glass and concrete were added. SIMLab hosts SFI CASA and Toppforsk project FractAl. The 16 partners in CASA include five of the world’s leading car producers, Statoil and Hydro.
