Numerical simulation of Distortion and residual stress in castings
Within the scope of a research-project distortion and residual stress analysis with MAGMAstress and ANSYS Workbench is performed at the Austrian foundry research institute.
- Numerical simulation of the entire casting process
- Prediction of critical regions in the casting
- Prediction of critical regions in the die
- Reduction of scrap
- Optimisation of the casting process and cost reduction
Durability optimisation of casting dies
In co-operation with the materials center leoben (mcl) and industrial partners the Austrian foundry research institute works on a project aiming at durability optimisation of dies by numerical simulation.
- Prediction of critical areas in permanent dies
- Prediction of die damaging
- Prediction of die durability
- Increase in die durabilitiy through process optimisation
