ESI Group's Casting Solutions benefit from two ambitious European Projects

ESI Group : 18 November, 2005  (New Product)
ESI Group's (ISIN FR0004110310), metallurgical development team has been selected for its proven ability to develop and implement accurate material models to simulate complex solidification and solid state transformation phenomena.
ESI Group's (ISIN FR0004110310), metallurgical development team has been selected for its proven ability to develop and implement accurate material models to simulate complex solidification and solid state transformation phenomena.

ISA-PESR, started in September 2004 with a duration of three years. This is an innovative project dedicated to the simulation of advanced protective gas electro-slag-remelting for the production of high quality steels. It is financed by a research program from the European Commission Research Fund for Coal and Steel. ESI Group, France participates in the program developing specific solvers enabling the modeling of complex electromagnetic interactions during the casting process. A commercial module tailored to the needs of the remelting industry will be developed and coupled with the casting simulation software available from ESI Group.

The project is coordinated by the Montan University of Leoben in Austria with the participation of prestigious partners such as ALD Vacuum Technologies in Germany, Böhler Edelstahl GmbH in Austria and Centro Sviluppo Materiali in Italy.

The second program is IMPRESS which started in November 2004 for a duration of five years. This project is part of the 6th Framework Program of the European Commission coordinated by the European Space Agency. Calcom ESI, ESI Group's Swiss subsidiary, is directly funded by the Swiss Secretariat for Education and Research. The goal of the project, in which 41 European institutes and companies are participating, is to understand the critical link between material processing, material structure and material properties of novel higher-performance multi-functional intermetallic alloys and to transfer this new knowledge into breakthrough prototypes tailored for extreme applications such as turbine blades and fuel cells.

Calcom ESI will contribute to this ambitious project by concentrating its efforts on coupled casting and heat treatment simulation, prediction of material properties altered by porosity and assessment of the solid state transformation during heat treatment. For this study, a close collaboration with the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne has already been initiated.

'These close collaborations with visionary companies and leading Universities and Research Institutes enable ESI Group to further develop its casting solutions and thereby to continuously provide industries worldwide with improved, reliable and sophisticated software products.' says Marco Gremaud, Business Development Director, Casting Solutions, ESI Group.
