New advances in physical simulation of metallurgical processes
Dr. Ilchat Sabirov, IMDEA Materials Institute, Madrid, Spain
This presentation focuses on the novel methods for physical simulation of metallurgical processes developed recently at IMDEA Materials Institute. The methods cover a wide range of metallurgical processes, such as forging, extrusion, rolling, casting and joining. It is demonstrated that the physical simulation methods are able to predict precisely the microstructure (grain size, phase composition, dendritic structure, etc.) and mechanical properties (hardness) of bulk metallic materials, as well as microstructure and properties of interfaces developed during joining of dissimilar metallic materials, if the parameters of the metallurgical process are precisely reproduced in the thermo-mechanical simulator. The advantages of application of these methods in development of novel thermomechanical processing routes are shown. Physical simulation of the metallurgical processes using thermo-mechanical simulator minimizes the amount of material for such experimental work as well as increases the efficiency of experimental work, thus reducing its cost.
Dr. Ilchat Sabirov graduated in 1999 with Engineer degree in Materials Science and Engineering from Ufa State Aviation Technical University (Russia). In 2004, he got his PhD in Metallurgy from the Montanuniversitaet Leoben (Austria). He has held postdoctoral positions at the Erich Schmid Institute for Materials Science of the Austrian Academy of Science (Leoben, Austria), Deakin University and ARC Centre of Excellence for Design in Light Metals (Australia). Dr. Sabirov’s current research interests focus on physical simulation of various metallurgical processes, deformation processing of advanced metallic materials (light metals, steels, superalloys, etc), and processing-microstructure-properties relationship.
Dr. Sabirov has been the Principal Investigator in numerous EU projects, including coordination of three European projects, and one National project. He has co-authored over 90 papers in international journals, one book and one international patent, as well as contributed to organization of several research symposia on several scientific Conferences. Dr. Sabirov was awarded by competitive travel grant “Scientific visits to Europe” granted by the Australian Academy of Science (2007), Marie Curie Amarout Fellowship (2011) granted by EU, and Ramon y Cajal Fellowship granted by Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (2011).
