Process modeling starts with finite element or finite difference analysis on materials processing methods. In terms of ICME, the notion is to connect the inputs and outputs of each simulation so as to capture the history effect of the simulation results.
- Additive Manufacturing
- Solidification Modeling
Channel Die Compression
An example of channel die compression using crystal plasticity for an AM30 magnesium alloy.
- Extrusion process modeling using a Computational Fluid Dynamics code
- Extrusion process modeling using a Finite Element code
Powder Metal Compaction
An example of Aluminum rolling and Yield surface simulation (plane strain compression) using the VPSC polycrystal model.
- Tube manufacturing simulator - An interactive application to simulate a tube manufacturing process. The underlying model attempts to predict the tube properties (yield stress, ultimate yield, elongation to failure, hardness), and to estimate the costs (such as material, labor, equipment) at each tube processing stage.
- Friction Stir Welding
- Resistance Spot Welding
