AbstractThe thesis work consists in modeling the precipitation/dissolution sequences of the hardening phases during the additive manufacturing process for two nickel-based superalloys. This work can be split in two parts:
The first objective will be to model the thermal history of the part during its manufacture and at any point of the solidified metal.
The second objective is to develop a numerical model to predict the evolution of the distribution of precipitates according to the local thermal history of the material.
ProfileMaster 2. Knowledges in metallurgy required.
