Avoiding tests

Combination of cast iron simulation and crack toughness

Simulate crack toughness

Task

Determination of microstructure parameters and correlations of these parameters with crack toughness (fracture mechanics, damage mechanics) by means of cast iron simulation with local accuracy

Goal

Optimized component design for cast iron components, in particular for high demands on component safety

Path

Investigation of the parameters resulting from the simulation and linkage with the crack toughness by correlation or analytical models
