The ANALYSES & SURFACE laboratory has set up a joint CEVIMAT laboratory created with the Materials Physics Group (GPM) to obtain synergies between a leading university laboratory and a CRT organized to meet the needs of industry in terms of quality, cost and lead-time.
The CRT serves as a front office for exchanges with industrials and supervise the joint project with the GPM, and provide a response based on fundamental (State of the Art) studies for the industrials’ technical applications across the entire value chain, while sharing a team of teacher-researchers, PhD graduates and engineers and a highly efficient installed base of research facilities.
The central theme of CEVIMAT research is the aging of materials and their long-term development. That development is inseparable from the wear properties of the materials, their durability and the dependability of the structures or systems for which they are used.
The CEVIMAT is currently supervising two CIFRE PhD theses involving two regional companies:
The development of an internal diffusion barrier based on a diffusive reaction mechanism in titanium alloys,
The second relates to the improvement of mold coating performance characteristics.
Three projects are also underway:
SIEMSTACK : Electrical Interposer Solutions for a Stacker Module
SIEMSTACK involves the design and manufacture of an innovative electrical interconnection solution for the aeronautics industry. The solution studied in this project is designed to electrically connect parallel circuit boards (PCBs) or ceramic multi-chip-type components (MCM) in a small volume subject to high thermal stress.
REDISPERSE : The environmental impact of the aging and degradation of nanostructured materials
The REDISPERSE project is ultimately designed to study the environmental toxicological impact of the degradation of nanostructured materials.
The scientific objective of the project is to determine whether the wear and aging of nanostructured materials can lead to the release of nanoparticles into the environment. And if that were the case, what would the consequences be of the dust produced (as aerosols or aqueous media) from a toxicological point of view. To do this, exposure will be based on the use of bivalve molds.
RITA : Innovative Repair of Aeronautical Nozzles
The purpose of the RITA project is to develop innovative solutions for the repair of aeronautical nozzles made of titanium alloy. The main technological challenge is to develop a titanium alloy repair process that enables the return to service of the structures for a new aircraft life-cycle.
These projects are co-financed by the European Union, the French government and the Haute-Normandie regional council. The participation of the European Union in Haute-Normandie is through the European Regional Development Fund.
