Close To get more specific search results, try using the following tips:

Make sure the spelling of search terms is correct.

The search engine will attempt to find words that sound similar to the terms you have entered, but the results will be better if your spelling is correct.

Use multiple words for more refined results.

Using multiple words will return more refined results than a single word. Results which are possibly relevant will be listed even if they don't contain all query terms, but they will be ranked in an order which may be more useful to you.

Example: If you search on energy all items whose descriptions include the word energy will be listed. If you instead enter energy efficiency, items with both those terms will be listed first.

Use single quotation marks (') to locate words which must appear together.

Using single quotation marks will find words which must appear exactly in the given order.
The search results will list results that contain phrases in that order first.

Example: 'Concentrated Solar Power'

Use the plus (+) or minus (-) signs to refine your search.

Use a plus sign when your search term or phrase must appear in the search results.
Use a minus sign to indicate undesirable term(s).
The plus sign tells the search engine that a certain word or phrase is required in the search results, and a minus sign indicates that a word or phrase must be absent in the search results.
Note: A phrase must be contained within single marks. Leave no spaces between the plus or minus sign and the term.

Example: "+photovoltaic -solar" will return results that contain the word "photovoltaic", but not "solar"

Innovation: Sustainable Production of Functional and Safe Feed from Food Waste

Last update: 28.06.2014
Ready to use
The transformation of fruit, vegetables, roots and dairy derivatives into animal feed and feed additives through cost-effective tools is the conceptual approach of the NOSHAN project. Food wastes are characterized for their nutritional potential, but also suitable technologies to stabilize them and convert them into suitable raw materials for bulk [...]


Innovation: Specific mechanical properties and metallographic parameters and post-forming mechanical properties and metallographic parameters of Ti alloys

Last update: 19.06.2014
Ready to use
1) characterization of mechanical properties and formability of the material TiAL6V4 at various conditions of straining. 2) Description of not only mechanical properties of the processed samples of forming Ti-40, Ti-15-3-3-3, and Ti-6Al-4V alloys sheets, but also homogeneity of their microstructure.


Innovation: Hot Incremental Forming Process Using Localized Heating

Last update: 19.06.2014
Two experimental setups for hot incremental forming processes using localized heating have been successfully developed. One setup is based on localized resistance heating whereas the second setup is based on local laser heating. For both processes the general applicability has been demonstrated. In order to ensure safe and stable processes [...]


Innovation: Full life cycle approach to assess the sustainability of the hot AISF process

Last update: 19.06.2014
An assessment method has been presented to evaluate the energy efficiency of two hot AISF processes. Localised laser heating is a lean alternative compared with global heating. However, an important drawback in localised heating is the excessive residual stress developed due to the combined heating and forming processes. The localised [...]
