Characterization of formed internal Mg and Al threads

Holistic development and characterization of an efficient manufacturing of detachable joints for aluminium and magnesium lightweight materials

The aim of the research project includes the holistic development, characterization and optimization of an innovative friction drilling process with subsequent thread manufacturing in aluminium and magnesium alloys. Especially the model based correlations of the process-structure-property-relations are to be investigated. The process related geometrical and microstructural properties of internal threads are correlated with the mechanical properties, whereby a structure-based analysis of the damage mechanisms leads to a comprehension of an optimal process parameter designing.
