Periodic Reporting for period 1 - MatCH4Turbo (Material Model of Case-Hardened Steels for Turbo Gear Applications)
Reporting period: 2019-04-01 to 2020-09-30
The virtual design process for high performance machine elements based on an FE-analysis leads above all to a significantly accelerated and resource-efficient design process. With tools provided in this project, functional tolerances and surface/subsurface characteristics can be pre-defined in the design process to ensure a safe operation of the machine element. Besides productivity, the manufacturing quality can be increased at the same time as tolerances are better controlled. Due to the validated and data-based VHCF calculation model, it is possible to realize gears with reduced geometric dimensions, whereas the transmission of a high power density can be realized. This results in weight savings potential, which in turn leads to higher transport capacity and reduced emissions of the aircraft.
