Forming and Surface Engineering
The Research Group for Forming and Surface Engineering (Prof. Antti Korhonen)
The Group carries out advanced research in Forming and Surface Engineering.
The Group focuses on the plastic forming of metals and on the physical and mechanical properties of surfaces. Recent subjects of research have included forming limits and mechanical properties of sheet metals and numerical modelling of metal forming. The ongoing work carried out in collaboration with the Finnish industry includes e.g a project on severe plastic deformation in order to produce nanostructured ultra high-strength steel alloys.
