This project will result in FEM and PFEM-models for analysis with high accuracy enabling manufacturing by using virtual schemes. In addition, the aim is to support a Swedish SME with experience of cutting and forming of advanced materials, and with high ambitions to develop these processes further for product and process development. The project gathers competence from Swedish aero engine industry.
The objectives of the project are:
- Further development of FEM and PFEM methodology and thermo-mechanical material characterization of titanium machining and thermoforming. Simulation Driven Development of strategies for processing such as turning and shaping that evaluates different methods to ensure the geometry, material properties and surface structure of the produced component and throughout the entire manufacturing chain.
- Tight tolerance requirements means that the residual stress state and form deviations studied by advanced methods for FE analysis that aims to provide results to the analysis of subsequent fabrication steps of the aerospace industry. Two prototype components manufactured by the respective machining and thermoforming and evaluated.
