InCeight Casting is the congress that for the first time offers the overarching exchange of experience and knowledge of all disciplines involved in the product life cycle "cast component". The aim is to develop a common understanding of the various requirements for high-performance and efficient cast products.
The car manufacturer Opel Automobile GmbH, together with the Fraunhofer LBF and the System Reliability, Adaptive Structures, and Machine Acoustics department of the Technical University of Darmstadt, has developed innovative numerical fatigue strength assessment approaches for multi-material joints based on fatigue tests of hybrid joined shear and peel specimens.
Scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Structural Durability and System Reliability LBF have now developed an innovative measuring head that can check the condition of a structure on the basis of its electromechanical impedance in a vibration-based and non-destructive manner.
Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Structural Durability and System Reliability LBF are taking components to their limits using resonance superelevation tests. Using a new type of test setup, they can excite components harmonically monofrequentially with much higher accelerations than before.
The project called ALLIANCE has some good news for designers: As it turns out, it is entirely possible to build components that are up to 33 percent lighter at an added cost of less than three euros per kilogram-saved.
In order to promote professional exchange and to advance the optimization of cast components across the entire production process, the Fraunhofer Institute LBF organizes the interdisciplinary congress "InCeight Casting C8” for the first time. The event will take place in German-language from March 1 to 3, 2021 in Darmstadt.
