EPSRC supported EngD: Developing methods for Big Data capture in support of the Digital Twin for Investment Casting Shelling Operations

University of Birmingham - School of Chemical Engineering

Qualification Type: Professional Doctorate
Location: Birmingham
Funding for: UK Students
Funding amount: See advert text
Hours: Full Time
Placed On: 8th August 2022
Closes: 7th October 2022

The manufacture of single crystal turbine components via investment casting is critical to the efficiency of the modern jet turbine. Despite a very advanced and tightly controlled manufacturing process, there are still many unidentified and interacting variables that can affect component yields.

One key factor is the shelling operation which creates the ceramic mould for casting. Control of the material formulation and processing variables are essential in making a mould with the correct properties and dimensions required for a defect free casting.

Recent advances in 3D dimensional characterisation and in-process viscosity measurement provide an opportunity to generate “big data” pools that can be used to better respond to changes in the process. This data can also be fed into advanced process models or “digital twins” that allow the effects of changes to be understood downstream.

As an EngD working within the HTRC you will develop data collection processes and make use of big data that becomes available to develop and validate the effects of shell build within the digital twin. This will require a fundamental understanding of the shell formulation effects on dimensional build and material properties and subsequent impact on a casting defect known as High Angle Boundaries.
