Center for Structural Integrity, Reliability and Micromechanics of Materials



The research group is in the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgical Engineering of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) in Barcelona. It is formed by several researchers with complementary experience in the fields of deformation, fatigue and fracture of ceramics, metals and inorganic composites. Over the years, specific knowledge has been acquired in the fields of fatigue and fracture, failure analysis, instrumented indentation and advanced microstructural characterization, surface technology, micromechanics, wear and interface analysis.

CIEFMA participates in AVINT project

The Center d'Integritat Estructural, Fiabilitat i Micromecànica dels Materials (CIEFMA UPC) participates in the project COMRDI16-1-0019''Avint: stratègies de mecanitzat i predicted of the rugositat per an optimal superficial integritat 'that you wish to augment The efficiency and competitiveness of the mitigation processes of the development of an application applied to the prediction of the ruggedness of the Abans fishes of the Seva Produced, so to achieve an optimal superficial integritat of the Mateixes and to avoid generating -ne of defectives. The result will be fish with a better value for the people that will help to improve the competitiveness of the companies.

The project is programmed in l'eix prioritari 1, “Strengthen research, technological development and innovation”, specific objective OE 1.2.2, “Transfer and diffusion of technology and cooperation between companies and universities or research centers”, línia d'actuació “Comunitats RIS3CAT” of the Marrat of the Operatiu FEDER Program of Catalonia 2014-2020.
