High Performance Computing for Real Time Modelling and HiL of Complex Transportation and Control Embedded Systems

START: 09/2017

OPEN
High Performance Computing (HPC) is an area of technology that provides simulation solutions for complex problems through parallel computing solutions, using clusters, supercomputers and FPGA-based solutions. This technological area may be used for the running of accurate real-time models of physical systems (e.g. wind turbines, trains, machinery), subsystems and interfaces between subsystems, as well as their fast implementation. A specific example is the avionics sector at “Iron...

Monitoring and closed loop control of metal based additive manufacturing

START: 09/2017

OPEN
Additive metal manufacturing is a maturing technology that has been provoking a degree of interest both in regard to its industrial application and its place as a technology within the industrial 4.0 revolution. Among other key aspects of its development, process control is fundamental in order to guarantee the manufacturing of critical parts, in what regards its application to complex geometry as well as in the introduction and development of new materials. The research...

New alloys development optimized for additive manufacturing technologies, characterization for further industrial applications

START: 09/2017

OPEN
Additive manufacturing development has reached a high stage of knowledge both as regards part manufacture and the sectors envisioning its application. The technology is consolidated. Hence, it is time to focus on process industrialization and, among other aspects, the customizing of new materials specifically for additive manufacturing, this aspect having been found of such vital importance wherever the ad-hoc design of an alloy spells out the feasibility of industrializing the additive...

Viability study on converters based on broadband technology in high-speed, low-power drives

START: 10/2017

OPEN
To meet the needs of an ever more demanding market in power applications, increasingly sophisticated power converters are required in terms of efficiency, compactness and signal quality. The basis of current converters, the silicon semiconductor, is now approaching the theoretical limits of the technology, which means there are fewer possibilities for improvement. In recent decades, research has been conducted on materials with characteristics suitable for replacing silicon, leading...

Paper based microfluidic biosensor development

START: 09/2017

OPEN
The development of novel devices for biological target monitoring is a constantly progressing discipline that covers many different fields. Most recent advances lead to a continual application of novel materials, inexpensive but highly versatile. Among them, cellulose based substrates stand out since they allow for the transmission of the samples in a simple and accurate manner. This project aims at the design, fabrication and characterization of biosensors based on the immobilization...
