Efficient modelling

This research is based on efficient models for simulating WAAM deposition and rolling processes, and their combination for large-scale structures. The efficient modelling method is developed using a reduced-size model to determine the steady-state solution, and then mapping the solution to a full-size structure for further analysis. This method is successfully applied to study the evolution of residual stress and plastic strain during the post-build and inter-layer rolling of WAAM deposited walls. The numerical predictions are verified with experimental results.
