PRISM2 is a research centre at the University of Birmingham, with expertise in the modelling of materials, manufacturing and design for high technology applications in the aerospace and power generation sectors. It is located in the Interdisciplinary Research Centre (IRC) on the University of Birmingham's Edgbaston campus. There are strong links with the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) based at Ansty Park, Coventry. Click here for more information on researchers involved in PRISM2.
Scientists and engineers – using advanced computer-based software – can now make astonishingly realistic and accurate simulations virtually. At PRISM2, we specialise in the simulation of manufacturing operations for high performance applications, e.g. welding and joining, casting, heat treatment, forming, forging and net-shape methods. We are particularly skilled in the modelling of the behaviour of structural materials during such processing, and the subsequent in-service performance of components made from them. We have strong links with companies in the aerospace and power generation sectors, amongst others. Click here for more information on what we are working on.
