Abstract:
The Soete laboratory performs basic and application-oriented research in following domains:
- Tribology (abrasion, wear, erosion);
- Fatigue and lifetime assessment;
- Structure - property relations;
- Finite element modelling;
- Design of structures, components and products;
- Combined damage mechanisms (abrasion-corrion; fatigue-corrosion) in challenging, including marine, environments.

The marine research focuses on the assessment of abrasive wear of shackle chains of trawl nets, defective welds in offshore pipelines, fatigue analysis of steel used in offshore structures as well as the study of the mechanical behaviour of polymer composite and water lubrication used in marine applications. The group is involved in several relevant research projects, such as the SIM MaDurOS program, Qualify project in Interreg2Seas, etc.

Soete laboratory belongs to the Ugent valorisation consortium Metals, which supports metals R&D from nano to mega and from fundamental material properties to large applications. In addition, Soete laboratory has dedicated personel to offer services to industry and partners.
