Integrated Material Modelling for Abrasion Resistant Steels (IMMARS)

Background

  • Wear is an important economic factor with high annual costs
  • Steels with improved abrasion resistance tend to suffer from relatively poor toughness

Aim

  • holistic multi-scale description of abrasion resistance of agricultural tillage equipment

Content

  • Identification of appearing loads in the tools
  • Development of a methodology for parametrisation with the discrete element method (DEM)
  • Validation and evaluation by series of tests
