Two experimental setups for hot incremental forming processes using localized heating have been successfully developed. One setup is based on localized resistance heating whereas the second setup is based on local laser heating. For both processes the general applicability has been demonstrated. In order to ensure safe and stable processes [...]
Experiments showed that springback error can be predicted with a high level of accuracy. Additionally, results show the optimum values for some of the parameters involved.
An assessment method has been presented to evaluate the energy efficiency of two hot AISF processes. Localised laser heating is a lean alternative compared with global heating. However, an important drawback in localised heating is the excessive residual stress developed due to the combined heating and forming processes. The localised [...]
IPM-1 has been used to successfully generate a corrected tool path that has been used to fabricate a new geometry that is closer to the desired shape than that produced using an uncorrected tool path. IPM-2 still needs more analysis.
Water can be saved through: infrastructure investment; improved coordination; or behavioural change-measures with different costs & time scales. While 40% water savings could be achieved from technological improvements, this value is the sum of a series of different actions. Based on water resources management experience, it can be roughly estimated [...]
Three calls were published and projects selected and initiated. Fourteen projects initiated, hereoff one project funded by a real common pot. The call after COII has been prepared in terms of discussing thematic research areas and selection of the areas of highest priority for the partners. The challenge to secure [...]
The Campaign consisted of a wide range of awareness raising and information actions. In total about 200 events and presentations have been realized and more than 500.000 people were reached by approaching the private sector and stakeholders: 1. Biodiversity Advocates from the private sector promoting business and biodiversity via taster [...]
This report summarises the experiences made and lessons learned within the seven E2ReBuild projects in view of collaboration and action chains. Impacts and conclusions concerning the design and construction process, the communication management, the participation, the claim and time management, the work-flow on-site, the Health & Safety management, the relationship [...]
The aim is to reduce the energy use in the demonstration buildings to 30-50 kWh/m2a for heating, ventilation and hot water, by introducing innovative and sustainable renovation solutions. These solutions focus on industrial manufacturing methods for e.g., facade elements and standardised retrofit measures that allow a high replication potential. That [...]
- Innovation in planning and design The aim is to provide concepts and solutions for the retrofitting process based on industrialised construction systems – from prefabrication technologies, optimised digital workflow and survey to off-site production and on-site assembly. • Develop holistic retrofit strategies with high added value and high replication [...]
