INFinity - ANR Industrial Chair


An innovative multiscale numerical framework to design industrial quenching process safely


The INFINITY chair contributes then to a long-term vision of high fidelity numerical tool as a basis for reliable simulations of quenching processes allowing the partners to remove several major technical barriers, to faster aid to decision for delivering high quality parts while minimizing residual stresses, preventing cracking and thus optimizing heat processes.

Challenges

Modeling the liquid-to-vapor phase change, predicting different boiling modes with the transition between them and modeling the fluid-solid-heat coupling with solid phase transformation are mainly aimed.

Software

Through the INFINITY chair, the involved researchers propose to consolidate a novel unified multiscale framework and to integrate and capitalize it in the finite element software THOST®.

Breakthrough & Innovation


01. Applied mathematics

The development of a unified parallel adaptive finite element numerical strategy attended by experimental validations

02. Multiphysics

The development of an immersed multiphase strategy in order to leverage the simplicity and flexibility of fluid-solid-heat coupling

03. Integration

These developments will allow the partners to remove several major technical barriers and to faster aid to decision
