Optimization fo addendum surface in stamping



ArcelorMittal is the world's leading steel company, with operations in more than 60 countries.

ArcelorMittal is the leader in all major global steel markets, including automotive, construction, household appliances and packaging, with leading R&D and technology, as well as sizeable captive supplies of raw materials and outstanding distribution networks.

With an industrial presence in over 19 countries spanning four continents, the Company covers all of the key steel markets, from emerging to mature. Through its core values of sustainability, quality and leadership, ArcelorMittal commits to operating in a responsible way with respect to the health, safety and wellbeing of its employees, contractors and the communities in which it operates. It is also committed to the sustainable management of the environment and of finite resources.

ArcelorMittal recognises that it has a significant responsibility to tackle the global climate change challenge; it takes a leading role in the industry's efforts to develop breakthrough steelmaking technologies and is actively researching and developing steel-based technologies and solutions that contribute to combat climate change.

In 2018, ArcelorMittal had revenues of $76 billion and crude steel production of 92.5 million tonnes.

ArcelorMittal is listed on the stock exchanges of New York (MT), Amsterdam (MT), Paris (MT), Brussels (MT), Luxembourg (MT) and on the Spanish stock exchanges of Barcelona, Bilbao, Madrid and Valencia (MTS).

About Research and Development
Research and Development (R&D) at ArcelorMittal is a major driver for future growth and to stay at the forefront of steel industry innovation in high value-added segments. With a budget of approximately $270 million in 2013, ArcelorMittal possesses a R&D capability unique in the steel industry.

R&D is a major player in ArcelorMittal’s 3 core values - sustainability, leadership and quality -, and supports the 3 main pillars of the Group’s strategy:

  • geographical spread – by operating in all the countries where ArcelorMittal has sites,
  • product range – by working to differentiate our products from those of our competitors,
  • and value chain – by making a contribution throughout the value chain, from the raw materials to the finished product delivered to the client.

Employing 1500 researchers in 11 labs located in Europe, North and South Americas, R&D operates in 3 business fields :

  • Products and steel solutions research,
  • Process research
  • Technical assistance to the plants
ArcelorMittal and HPC

In order to improve our production process, numerical simulation becomes a key tool. As our process involve multi – physic interactions (thermal, mecanical, metalurgical) more realistic simulation in 3 dimension needs high performance computing technology.

Moreover, with the introduction of high strength steel in the market, in order to optimize their in use properties by our customers, high performance computing enables to test many configurations (right choice of process set-up, adequate geometry) that would not be feasible neither with physical test nor with classical computing tool for cost and time reasons.

As an example, ArcelorMittal is deeply involved in a starting co-labelised system@tic and I-Trans project OASIS whose objective is to optimize the addendum surface geometry in order to facilitate the stamping process of high strength steel.

Finally HPC opens the door to ab initio simulation that would help for deeply understanding material behavior under different solicitations.

ArcelorMittal and TERATEC

As problems to face are involving multidisciplinarity, it is important to have a place where exchanges between researchers, industrials and innovative companies are facilitated. ArcelorMittal intends to participate in collaborative projects by submitting challenging problems to this new community.
