Modelling of advanced materials for simulation of transformative manufacturing processes
An international research project dedicated to bring a transition to the next step in high-value manufacturing in the 21st century. To achieve this, modern manufacturing necessitates a broader use of higher temperatures, forces, deformations and loading rates. In practice, development and application of modelling and simulation tools are the only practical in which these challenge will be met, particularly for new transformative manufacturing processes. Material-removing processes such as solid-state joining processes using linear friction welding and ultrasonically-assisted high speed machining are of particular this project research interests. The project involves mathematical modelling including constitutive modelling and experimental validation for high grade alloys such as nickel-based superalloys, titanium and magnesium alloys.
