Powder metallurgy, Nanomaterials, Rapid Prototyping Laboratory

The research center for nanostructured and advanced materials (RCNAM) was formed in April of 2004 as an outgrowth of the Materials Science and Engineering Department of Sharif University of Technology. Its basic goal is to champion improvements in processing of advanced materials through education, research, and service. RCNAM is now actively involved in performing various industrial projects through the appropriate contracts by the industries and organizations in the country. The center is supported by both public and private funds for doing basic and applied research activities. It addresses the problems of the national and international materials processing community and focuses on the following research areas:

  • - Production and processing of composite materials
  • - Nanostructure materials, in particular nanoparticles and nanocomposites
  • - Science and technology of polymers
  • - Tailored and functionally designed materials
  • - Metal Foams and cellular structures
  • - Friction and anti-friction materials
  • - Biomaterials and biomedical devices
  • - Advanced materials deformation and forming processes
  • - Rapid fabrication of prototype components and durable tooling
  1. - Advanced magnetic materials
  • - Mechanical alloying and milling
  • - Computer simulation and process control in support of materials processing

The goal of the CRNAM program is to put into place the resources and training to advance the nanostructure and advanced materials filed in a global, competitive environment. To this end, education, research and service are all intertwined to complete this task. We couple the educational component with an equally strong hands-on laboratory experience for a balanced program. This provides a good balance for basic and applied research.
