DOST PROJECT was presented last wednesday (6th of July) in Bergara.
The main lines developed in the project were explained in deep, describing in detail the previous work of preparation, analysis and collection related to tribology systems.
After that, the numerical models for friction simulation were explained.
Finally, the most noteworthy result of the project: the Decision Support System for the Tribology Optimization in Forging Processes.
Towards a better understanding of the tool, some examples were run, explaining the inputs, the way of working out of the analytic tool, and what kind of results can be achieved.
The attendance at the event was noted, with 51 people from 38 organizations (mainly forging companies, research centers, etc), and after this first feedback, we could assert that the DSS was well embraced.
The DSS is available in this web page in this first period directly. After this first period, the DSS will be available aftger the user being logged in the system.
