In the completed EU-project »SIMCHAIN« a simulation chain was developed that allows to study the influence of process parameter on the local mechanical properties of additive manufactured parts.

The material strength and stiffness are calculated based on the local microstructure.

In the project the simulation chain was applied to the SEBM-process (Selective Electron Beam Melting).
