Los Alamos National Laboratory-Jeonbuk National University (LANL-JBNU) announced on 16th June that it has signed a joint research project agreement with Hyundai Motors.
The institute successfully conducted future technology research tasks with Hyundai Motor in back in 2018, and then signed another agreement in 2019 to expand technology development.
Through this, its unprecedented imaging and wave control techniques were incorporated into Hyundai Motor's future technology research.
With the 2019 joint research agreement, LANL-JBNU plans to apply its various non-destructive inspection techniques to automobile structures.
The non-destructive testing technology of the institute can be widely applied not only to the automobile industry, but also to the machinery, construction, aviation industries and many more.
“We have been developed a variety of non-destructive testing techniques applicable to diverse materials such as metals, composites and plastics,” said Lae-Hyong Kang, the Director of LANL-JBNU. "Our aim is to contribute to making safer and more durable future vehicles."
Los Alamos National Laboratory-Jeonbuk National University has been contributing to the development of local industries by establishing a cooperative system with various companies in the wind power, aviation, drones, carbon fiber and electronic parts fields, conducting multi-disciplinary industry-academic research. Also, it won a technology transfer contract for non-destructive inspection of national defense-related structures, and has been actively interacting with MAI Carbon in Germany, as well as Los Alamos National Laboratory in the United States.
