Use of Electro-plasticity during plastic forming of materials
|Coordinator||CHALMERS TEKNISKA HÖGSKOLA AKTIEBOLAG - Chalmers tekniska högskola|
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 500 000|
|Project duration||January 2010 - January 2012|
Purpose and goal
The aim of the project is to reseach if electro-plasticity can be used to facilitate shaping and manufacturing processes that includes plastic deformation.
Results and expected effects
The expected outcome of the project is a feasibility study where electro-plasticity is studied, and a project application for continuing work.
Approach and implementation
An experimental equipment will be set up to make the initial tests with electro-plasticity. Experiments of deformation with the aid of electro-plasticity on technicaly interestin metals will be performed.
