T08 - Process Design

Lifetime-compliant process design for the manufacturing of sheet-bulk metal formed components

Project Status: Active

Last Update: 29.01.2020


Within the transfer project T08, the lifetime model developed in subproject C6 is to be transferred to components, which are produced by a sheet-bulk metal forming process and for which an additional heat treatment is intended to increase hardness and to influence the residual stress state. High-resolution scanning electron microscopy will be used to characterize the ductile damage caused by the forming process, which will be considered as the initial length for the service life calculation. The aim is to determine the mechanisms and the potential for damage compensation by heat treatment and to apply to the demonstrator process.
