Within MMTECH, multiscale modelling techiniques will be used to establish a system that can support the development and optimisation of the process chain for manufacturing gamma titanium aluminde components. The system will integrate the different process models at a number of different scales. The modellig work includes:

  • CFD simulations of the powder feed and powder distribution
  • Phase field models for studying material diffusion, interface formation and mechanical properties
  • Micro-mechanical modelling of typical microstructures
  • Continuum cohesive zone modelling, representative volume element modelling and submodelling of materials subjected to thermomechanical loading via laser heating and mechanical cutting.
