Simulation of Residual Stresses in Castings (Mechanical Project)

This work presents a study and implementation of the simulation of residual stresses in castings. The objects of study are a cast iron truck Hub part (provided by the company Volvo 3P) and an optimized version of the Hub resulting from the application of a topology optimization process.

The models are solved through an uncoupled thermo-mechanical solidification analysis, performed both in the FE commercial Continue reading
