EWI has recently acquired a Correlated Solutions 3D digital image correlation (DIC) system.  The system was purchased for use in the EWI Forming Center for evaluation of deformation in sheet metals to produce forming limit diagrams.  A full description of the uses of DIC in characterization of material formability is located in the following link:Read more


Distortion Prediction Methods for Full-sized Parts Built with L-PBF — New Paper

By Rebecca Gurk on Thursday, February 2nd, 2017 in Additive Manufacturing, First Time Quality, Metal 3D Printing, Modeling & Simulation, Structural Integrity. No Comments

Modeling approaches have been developed to study the evolution of temperature, stress, and distortion in parts built using laser powder bed fusion (L-PBF); however, the long computational times required by these techniques limit their practical use. EWI has developed and validated several improved numerical models to address this challenge, including a layer-heating approach capable ofRead more

We are pleased to welcome Nucor-Yamato Steel Company as new EWI member. Formed in 1987 with the goal of operating a steel mini-mill to manufacturing wide-flange beams, Nucor-Yamato Steel now has the capacity to produce over 2.5 million tons per year of not only wide-flange beams, but also H-piling, sheet piling, standard I-beams, channels, andRead more


Modeling of Forging and Other Bulk-forming Processes

By Rebecca Gurk on Wednesday, December 14th, 2016 in Additive Manufacturing, Advanced Manufacturing, Aerospace, Automotive, First Time Quality, Forming, Heavy Industry, Heavy Manufacturing, Manufacturing Innovation, Mechanical Design, Modeling & Simulation. No Comments

Many manufacturers use bulk metal forming processes such as forging and extrustion to produce complex metal components. Finite element analysis (FEA) can be used to model bulk metal-forming processes. These simulations provide information that is difficult or impossible to obtain from experimental trials, and can determine whether part defects such as unfill and laps willRead more
