RTU researcher talks about constancy research and engineering thinking
On October 11, 2018, in the radio program NABA “For Science” RTU researcher Kaspars Kalnins tells about his research interests, as well as the basic principles of engineering thinking and what is important in engineering studies.
In cooperation with RTU students ‘parliaments, pupils’ television broadcast “Clever, even more clever” participants will have to determine the bearing capacity of the aluminum bee load by means of demonstration. The estimated time of the translation is until June 2017.
Conversation about Latvia’s participation in space exploration. Industrial Space Days, organized by the European Space Agency, took place at the beginning of June and participated in the Latvian Space Cluster. Study guests – leading researcher of the Institute of Materials and Construction of the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Doctor of Engineering, Kaspars Kalnins.
Researchers at the Institute of Materials and Structures of the RTU improve the properties of veneer plywood panels – reducing weight, adding shock absorption, heat resistance, and giving electromagnetic field damping and sound absorption properties. These studies are important not only for ship and car manufacturers, but also for furniture and many other industries.
Demonstration of limited plywood board prototyping.
Validation of experimental bending stiffness for plywood panels made of birch plywood at the Riga Technical University / Institute of Materials and Structures, filled with PU foam component of natural origin, made by the Latvian State Institute of Wood Chemistry.
This research is funded by the Latvian State Research Program “Innovative and Multifunctional Wood Composites for Sustainable Buildings”
