EMULATE project

EMULATE project proposes a multidisciplinary approach to enhance the comprehension of metal machining. For that, the following three topics will be analyzed in order to improve this technology: 1) the development of accurate material models that incorporate the mechanisms of plasticity at the crystal level, as well as the effect of temperature over them; 2) the implementation of robust numerical methods that can upscale the former material models to the macro scale, and remain accurate despite the large deformations in the workpiece; 3) the validation of all material and numerical models with reliable experimental data coming from machining benchmarks, including temperature and microstructure measurements.
