KU Leuven is Belgium’s largest university and one of the oldest and most renowned universities in Europe. As a leading European research university and co-founder of the League of European Research Universities, KU Leuven offers a wide variety of international Master programs, all supported by high-quality, innovative, interdisciplinary research.
At KU Leuven, advanced materials research benefits tremendously from the wide range of multidisciplinary expertise in physics, nanosciences, and chemistry. The studied materials include: metals and alloys, structural and functional ceramics, composites, polymers, building materials, biomaterials, functional coatings, rare earths, catalytic materials, etc.
The University of Dayton is No. 1 among Catholic universities in engineering and development; its research volume has more than doubled in the last decade.
Main directions of scientific activity:
— Mathematical and physical modeling of deformation, fracture and anomalous behavior processes of solids taking into account temperature–time effects, chemical and phase transitions and generation and evolution of defects;
— Methods of numerical simulation in mechanics of solids and fluid mechanics;
— Problems of hydrodynamic stability and turbulence: forced flows and convection, physical-chemical hydrodynamics of polymers, suspensions and magnetic fluids.
