Strain-based design criteria for unfired pressure vessels: Demonstration of an adopted DBF procedure
(PresseBox) ( Wuppertal, )
Application research for steel generates ideas for innovations - the results of the research activities are proofs of feasibility of manufacturing, processing and testing procedures also for mechanical engineering. These results are now available in full text in the Stahldat SX database as well as in the Stahldaten Shop.

Steel and iron are the dominant metallic materials. The steel producing and steel processing industries are key industries of the German, European and world economy. Their products are omnipresent. The most important manufacturing industries include plant engineering as well as the automotive industry, mechanical engineering, plant engineering or construction industry. With countless new steel grades, completely new groups of steels and innovative processing methods, improved application possibilities and new fields of application for steel are opening up. As a result, steel can be a driver of innovation.

The Forschungsvereinigung Stahlanwendung e. V. (FOSTA) drives application research and practical development for the material steel. This includes brainstorming, the formation of consortia for the application and implementation of research projects. All research projects are carried out in cooperation of industry and steel relevant research institutions. The focus is on the fields of plant and mechanical engineering, automotive, construction, traffic engineering and environmental technology. These include the cross-sectional tasks such as working and processing techniques and material behavior of steel, simulation and sustainability.

Current research results for plant engineering from 2019 are summarized in the following final reports:
  • P 923 Disposition of wear protection layers with a thickness of up to 5 mm made of metal-ceramic powder mixture via resistance welding
  • P 939 Simulation of humping effects and undercuts in consideration of the temperature-dependent density of the molten pool
  • P 950 Strain-based design criteria for unfired pressure vessels: Demonstration of an adopted DBF procedure
  • P 972 FEA-assisted optimization of blanking aimed at damage minimization at cut edges of dual-phase and complex-phase steels sheets
