Production technologies – virtual model design

Objectives

  • Specifications for designing advanced hot rolling processes for non-conventional thermo-mechanical sequences aimed at pushing the present limitations in terms of grain refinement and strengthening
  • Thermomechancial simulations aimed at reproducing non-conventional sequences at a laboratory scale
  • Investigate the effect of applying innovative sequences on the microstructure and the mechanical properties (tensile, Charpy)
  • Assessment of the required modifications for overcoming the actual plant capability limitations
  • Providing validation data to modelers under conditions beyond those under conventional sequences
