Inverse process chain modeling for Al-castings and induction heat treated steel rods
|Co-investigator||RNDr. Jiří Svoboda, CSc., DSc.|
|Number of Project||A1.17|
|Agency||Materials Center Leoben|
|Duration||2014-03-31 - 2018-03-30|
|By Through-Process-Modeling and inverse optimization of two process chains (i) ‘casting-solution annealing-quenching-aging’ and (ii) ‘straightening-inductive austenitizing-quenching-inductive tempering-air cooling’ the understanding for the involved processes will be extended. Especially (i) a local properties optimization approach due to local heat treatment for castings will be developed and (ii) the induction heat treatment process will be analyzed in detail, a test bench will be built and physically based process models will be developed and implemented in MatCalc as well as in an MCL-owned software package. |
The knowledge based conversion of one heat treatment route into another (e.g. furnace to induction) via property forecasting and the knowledge of an optimal parameter field for reaching desired target values represents a technological novelty and is an essential part of the process control by inverse process chain simulation to be developed in this project.
