Frankberg’s doctoral dissertation explores the plastic deformation of ceramics at room temperature. While ceramics are attractive for many applications due to their superior resistance to heat, corrosion and wear, their brittleness is limiting their more widespread utilization. http://www.tut.fi/en/about-tut/news-and-events/ceramic-materials-can-deform-like-metals-and-polymers-x254117c2 Manufacturers gear up for the digital revolution Andrei Lobov took up an appointment as Associate Professor (tenure track) in the Laboratory of Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Systems at Tampere University of Technology (TUT) in January 2018.
