Integrated Computational Materials and Production Engineering


To a better understanding of relevant properties to increase the lifetime and the performance of mechanical components, an entire gear process chain is studied where the results and considerations are carried interconnecting process-by-process in individual multi-scale simulations. Specifically in WZL Cutting Technology Department, a turning process required in this manufacturing chain is studied focusing on the residual stress influence in consecutive cuts. Orthogonal cutting experiments are conducted with observation of the machining forces, temperatures and chip formation phenomena. With simulation support, the experimental conditions are verified and extrapolated in the direction of designing the residual stress in turning with the cumulative effect of rough and finish cuts.
