Process Simulation and Prediction of Fracture Probability in Powder Technology

The Institute for Materials Applications (IWM)/DE and the Institute for Applied Powder Metallurgy and Ceramics (IAPK)/DE at the RWTH Aachen e. V./DE work on a “powder-to-product” framework based on numerical simulation. Today, the framework encompasses important steps of the process chain for Powder Metallurgy (PM) and ceramic products including powder filling, sintering, HIP, and lifetime prediction. The present article highlights three examples of successful integration of simulation tools along the powder-technological production chain.
