Phase transformation modeling to deploy the microstructural tailoring potential of press hardening

Institut Jean Lamour, Nancy (France)
The main objectives of the hired researcher at IJL (CNRS contract) will be the following:
- Participate to bainite and martensite transformation modeling (kinetics and microstructure) as well as all the associated tempering mechanisms (transition carbide/cementite precipitation, carbon segregations, stress relaxation, dislocation recovery [4,5]). Once developed and calibrated on experimental data from the literature and produced in the course of the project, these sub-models should be implemented in the Finite Element process framework of LTU to predict the microstructure and properties on realistic full-scale parts.
- Help understanding and modeling the mechanical properties of the studied microstructure with respect to the observed microstructure evolutions (microstructure -based mean field models ).
- The researcher could contribute also to the HEXRD experiments and their analysis .
- Contribute to the dissemination of the results (regular meetings, publications, conferences).
