LaBoMaP Materials and Surfaces Engineering Topic 2.1 MSE

Topic 2.1: manufacturing processes and controlled properties materials

This research theme focuses on the interaction between the manufacturing processes (mainly foundry and forging) and technical specifications of the materials obtained.

  • The historical thematic is the elaboration of controlled microstructure materials and the improvement of their properties such as surface roughness, inclusion cleanliness, mechanical characteristics …
Modification of inclusions cleanliness
by inoculation of casted steel
          Complex inclusion obtained by inoculation
  • The process control is a theme based on experimental part and numerical one. Combining numerical simulation of processes (NovaFlow&Solid, Forge 3D…) and physical trials allows improving materials properties and reducing their defects.
