Through process modelling of forming and formability of aluminium sheets and profiles (VIRFORM)

Objective

This RTD project aims to improve productivity and product quality and to enable innovative solutions to future demands on safety, environment, design and user-friendliness. Products in this context are aluminum components for use mainly in transportation, but also products used in the building and packaging industry will be covered. The main output of the project is through process micro structurally based models with application to forming and formability of rolled sheets and extruded profiles of aluminum alloys.
