Technology and the ceramic process, appointment at Cermodel

Sacmi among the “sponsors” of the convention, which will bring together experts and researchers of world-class standing

Bringing international experts and researchers in the ceramic science and material modelling fields together with industry representatives to smooth technological transfer and make both products and production processes more efficient: this, then, is the goal of the “Cermodel 2013: modelling and simulation meet innovation in ceramics technology” congress, to be held in Trento this coming 10 - 12 July.

Organised by the University of Trento and sponsored by the Società Ceramica Italiana, this initiative forms part of the 7th European Framework Programme and is supported by some of the most important Italian research bodies and technology producers, including Sacmi Imola.
The convention, in fact, is an integral part of the European INTERCER2 project – Modelling and optimal design of ceramic structures with defects and imperfect interfaces – organised by the University of Trento (Mechanical and Structural Engineering Department), the British universities of Aberystwyth (Institute of Mathematics and Physics) and Liverpool (Department of Mathematical Sciences) with the industrial support of EnginSoft (Research & Development Department) and Sacmi Imola.

During the meeting talks will be given by Massimiliano Gei, Nicola Pugno and Andrea Piccolroaz (University of Trento) together with other Italian and internationally acclaimed professors and experts, from Marc Geers (Eindhoven University of Technology) to Stefano Guicciardi of Istec-Cnr, from Tomasz Hueckel (Duke University, USA) to Robert Mc Meeking (University of California), from Alexandru Stancu (from the Rumanian Alexandru Ioan Cuza University) to Cristiano Nicolella of the University of Pisa. The goal of the convention is to compare results obtained in the field of experimental research on materials with the best computational calculation techniques in order to improve production process efficiency and, additionally, test the potential of new advanced materials under specific application conditions.
