Modern Engineering and Functional Materials Development Facility


The conducted research on materials will utilize computer tools to predict their properties. Designing experimental and technological processes on the basis of computational results facilitates their conduct and contributes to the acceleration of the implementation process. The facility will be a center of theoretical and experimental research, where studies based on computer modeling are verified by experimental research. Such research process will accelerate the technology of product manufacturing and implementation.

Research Areas

  • Optimization of rhenium properties and its alloys based on computer modeling
  • Quantum-mechanical calculations of a wide range of multicomponent rhenium alloys in order to determine new application directions for rhenium-based alloys
  • Production of rhenium alloys, characterization of their structure and thermo-mechanical properties
  • Fabrication of rhenium and its alloy in the form of a powder for use in 3D printing
  • 3D printing of engineering components based on the manufactured rhenium powder and alloys
  • Characterization of thermomechanical properties of the obtained components
  • Thermomechanical processing of components – adaptation to structural requirements
  • Conducting research and development on the use of rhenium and its alloys in the chemical, aerospace and metallurgical industries


  • Providing comprehensive knowledge, necessary for designing materials (structural stability, defect energetics, relaxation of crystalline lattice), production of heat-resistant materials with the lowest density-to-strength ratio from transition metals such as rhenium, tungsten and their alloys
