The European Training Network ENABLE actively involves academics and industrial partners in training a new generation of young researchers for the future of manufacturing.
By developing new solutions for forecasting and mastering processes relevant for all factories using metallic alloys, ENABLE proposes a complete rethink of the usual process simulation methods. Innovative multiscale (from microscopic to macroscopic scales), and multi-physics (strong thermomechanical and microstructural couplings) are addressed through multi-level advanced (TRL 1 to 8) simulation.
The modelling proposed by ENABLE can be used to create specifically tailored material microstructures to create material properties and residual stress states to improve the components’ performance. These advances will lead to the development of new tools better suited to production with reduced premature wear, increased service life, improved tools, etc. and will reduce production time and thereby production costs.
