Chaman is linked to research area 1, Multi-Material Products and Processes, and will be looking at the lifetime prediction of composites. Ingrid is linked to research area 2, Robust and Flexible Automation, and will be working on flexible and automated robotized deburring. Andreas is also linked to research area 2 and will be working on robotized additive manufacturing.
Below, they will tell you a bit more about their studies. Would you like to follow Chaman, Ingrid and Andreas and the results of their studies? Keep an eye on this blog :)
Chaman Srivastava – Lifetime prediction of composites
My name is Chaman and I started to work on my PhD from June 2019 at the group of sustainable composites, ASEM Lab, Department of Manufacturing and Civil Engineering at NTNU Gjøvik. I have a masters in Materials Engineering from KU Leuven, with specialization in polymeric composites. I was also working as a Marie Curie fellow for 2 years in an EU project on crashworthiness of composites. In my PhD, I will focus on the lifetime prediction of composites by developing accelerated aging protocols and predictive modeling tools to estimate long term structural performance of polymer composites.
Ingrid Fjordheim Onstein – Flexible and automated robotized deburring
My name is Ingrid and I started my PhD in August 2019. I finished my master at the Department of Engineering Cybernetics (NTNU) in 2018. In my master, I worked with Linn Danielsen Evjemo on robotized additive manufacturing. I started working as an IT consultant after my master but realized after a few months that I was missing working with robots. As a result, I decided to take a PhD in manufacturing instead. In my PhD I will focus on flexible and automated robotized deburring. I will try to automatically remove burrs with a robot manipulator using input from CAD and vision.
Andreas Hanssen Moltumyr – Robotized additive manufacturing
My name is Andreas and I started my PhD in August 2019. I received my master’s degree from the Department of Engineering Cybernetics at NTNU, summer 2019. In my master thesis, I explored the topic of fractional-order control and tested it for control of an Atomic force microscope (AFM). In my PhD I will focus on on-line monitoring and quality control of robotized additive manufacturing. Using computer vision, I will attempt to monitor the printing process, detect print defects and do corrective action with the printing robot.
