To understand how materials behave and develop new alloys with tailored properties means can be seen as exploring a new territory to build new knowledge. The Design Of Experiments (DOE) methodology can then be a useful tool to help you explore your new design space in a smart and efficient way, but also help you use the information in a relevant and methodological way to build new knowledge.

This webinar continues elaborating on the topic Design Of Experiments, which was introduced for simulation based design of castings and casting processes in a WebLearn webinar earlier this year. This time we will meet postdoctoral researcher Patrick Conway, specialized on exploring and developing new alloys for the metal industry, and associate professor Jakob Olofsson, working with numerical modelling and characterization of cast metals and castings. Patrick and Jakob will share some examples and applications of DOE in order to explore new alloys as well as to understand and generate models for microstructure-based material behavior. We will also discuss how a statistical evaluation and analysis can help you reach a valid and relevant conclusion from your experimental data, and how this can help you design and create more robust castings and casting processes.

Date: Jun. 2, 2022

Time: 10:00-11:00 (+ 30 min panel discussion and networking)

After attending this webinar you will know more about:

  • Why DOE is an important and powerful tool
  • How new alloys are being developed
  • How material characterization can help you understand the performance of castings
  • Understand how the effect of variations in a casting process can be analyzed in order to create a robust and efficient process with high yield.

Target audience: Alloy developers, designers, foundry engineers and purchasers or suppliers of cast components, but also everyone with an interest in product realization and casting in general.
