"Study of the effect of porosity and its distribution on MAR-M-247 tensile and fatigue test specimens"
Funding: Industria de Turbopropulsores S.A.
Project period: 2014 – 2015
Principal Investigator: Dr. Federico Sket (federico.sket(AT)imdea.org)
The XMART project is an industrial collaboration with Industria de Turbopropulsores S.A (ITP) aiming to study the effect of porosity and its distribution on MAR-M-247 tensile and fatigue test specimens. The porosity will be investigated by X-ray computed tomography for further correlation with the fracture surface and the mechanical tests. XMART project will be carried out by the Nanomechanics group of IMDEA Materials Institute joining their know-how in advance characterization of materials and image analysis techniques.
