As the awardee of 2014 LEE HSUN Lecture Series—Lecture Award, Prof. Gerhard Hirt of Rheinisch Westfaelische Technische Hochschule (RWTH) Aachen University visited Institute of Metal Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences (IMR, CAS) from 14th to 16th Oct. 2014.
Prof. LI Yiyi, member of Chinese Academy of Sciences, presented the LEE HSUN Lecture Series plaque for Prof. Hirt in the ceremony. Prof. Hirt delivered a lecture of “Process and Materials Modelling in Incremental Forging and Ring Rolling”, which consisted of two topics: Process Modifications & Process Modelling for Rolling of Tailored Products; Tailoring the Product Properties of High Manganese Steels. In the lecture, he explained the development of analog simulationand online structure property controlling of open die forging and ring rolling, dissimilar metal composite rolling process and the forming of twin roll strip casting of high manganese steels.
After the lecture, Prof. Hirt and researchers of Materials Process Modeling Division discussed about the presence and trends in bulk metal forming. On the base of that, they set a key cooperative project in steel ingot online smart forging, superhigh temperature soft core forging and casting blank center defect healing and eventually signed a memorandum of understanding.
