Modelling Distortions of Large, Thinwalled Light Alloy Alloy Castings

    Project Details


    The aim of the project is to develop and test new, innovative and fast numerical techniques for modelling thermomechanically induced distortions in large, complex light alloy parts.

    The goals are:

    Speeding up algorithms with an order of magnitude compared to conventional techniques, making it possible to simulate the manufacturing process of large complex parts at realistic computational times for industrial applications.

    Selecting and testing proper constitutive laws for prediction of distortions in light metal alloys, e.g. viscoplastic models.

    Testing various convergence criteria to ensure sufficiently accurate results for the analysis of macroscopic distortions

    Comparing different simulation techniques to recommend the most promising for commercialisation.
