FUTURALVE is a national R&D collaborative program carried out by a consortium of companies and led by ITP. The goal of the project is to create new materials and advanced fabrication technologies for the new generation of high speed turbines.
IMDEA Materials´ activities are mainly focused on the analysis of cracking susceptibility and the characterisation of residual stresses, microstructure and defectology. The research activities are performed by an interdisciplinary team including researchers from the Physical Simulation, Micro- and Nano-Mechanics and X-Ray Characterisation of Materials research groups.
