Do you have a problem with your material? Would you like to know more about certain materials (metals), their mechanical behaviour, strength, ductility, weldability, service experience, etc.?

Let me help you by performing a literature survey on the topic at a reasonable price. Experience based on research in the materials engineering field during 45 years, about 400 publications in collaboration with researchers all over the world and hundreds of failure analysis reports.

Limited experimental testing is also possible with the University of Oulu, the Centre for Advanced Steels Research (CASR), Materials and Production Engineering unit, and Future Manufacturing Technologies (FMT) group.

Reporting in English or Finnish.
