Effective realistic modeling is key in the energy and petrochemical industry in order to verify welding technology on real size components of very large and heavy products.
Numerical simulation offers a unique and comprehensive virtual assessment of material characteristics, residual stresses and distortions in welded structures while considering different welding processes and heat treatments. This allows engineers to be as productive as possible by building physically realistic virtual structures in the development phase to ensure improvement in the quality and performance of the manufactured products.
- Keep welding distortions within allowable tolerances
- Control high residual stresses in the welding structures for quality assessment
- Avoid component distortion and high material hardness during or after heat treatment
- Obtain correct material strength, toughness, and hardness
- Improve crash and fatigue performance of the product
- Optimization and testing without real mock-ups
Marek Slováček, Ph.D, is a technical specialist in the fields of materials, welding, heat treatment and additive manufacturing technologies and assessment of limit states of the structure (fatigue, fracture mechanics, brittle fracture, creep etc.). With over 25 years’ experience and working as Business Development Manager for Virtual Manufacturing Solution at ESI Group, he is responsible for the management of large projects, mainly in R&D and innovation and a consultant for design and technology, materials and mechanical engineering. In parallel to his position at ESI, he is teaching at the University of Defense in Brno, Czech Republic. Marek holds a doctoral degree in Philosophy (Ph.D.), Mechanical and Technology and is author of several publications.
