The project ("DNA casting" in English) is dedicated to integrated numerical design of cast components along the process chain. It means various fields of expertise are to be combined in order to develop the unified approach for the design of high-performance cast components, which would be useful especially in wind energy and manufacture of heavy-duty machines. It shall also facilitate efficient and cost-effective series development of cast components.
The project is funded by Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) through the Jülich project management organisation in the framework of the 7th energy research programme "Innovations for the energy revolution".
