TRR 188: Damage Controlled Forming Processes (Coordination: TU Do)

Type of Funding: DFG Programmes, Collaborative Research Centres

The CRC/Transregio 188 is a joint long-term research project with participation of RWTH Aachen, BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg, TU Dortmund University and the Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung. The overall objective is to investigate damage nucleation and evolution in hot and cold forming on multi-process and multi-scale level by merging of competences in the areas of forming technology (A-projects), materials science (B-projects) and mechanical material modeling (C-projects). Strategies are developed to permanently improve the performance of components produced by shaping technology by adjustment of damage profiles through optimization of load paths.
