The various causes for distortion can be found in every step of the manufacturing process. Based on that the control of a component´s distortion only can be achieved by an interdisciplinary approach starting at the design phase of a part up to the final heat treatment.
The International Conferences on Distortion Engineering (IDE) 2005 and 2008 in Bremen have shown that this system-oriented point of view is necessary for the full understanding and solution of distortion problems. The ongoing activities on distortion within research institutes worldwide, also in the Collaborative Research Center SFB 570, as well as research and experience gained in industry, leads us to announce the 3rd IDE.
The main objective of the IDE 2011 is again to discuss on an international level the state of the art of understanding basic mechanisms and interactions between different production steps leading to distortion and the measures to control changes in shape and dimensions including modelling and simulation in industrial production processes. Of primary interest are production processes of metallic parts, which are manufactured by forming and machining operations and heat treatment. Contributions which are focused on distortion phenomena in thermal joining operations are also welcome.

Measurement of distortion and residual stresses
Interactions of different production processes
In-process measurement of deformations, temperatures, stresses, and phase compositions
Control of distortion and quality management
Methods of distortion compensation
Modeling of distortion related phenomena (plasticity, phase transformation,
transformation plasticity, segregations, ...)
Simulation of single and couplings of subsequent processes such as casting, forming, machining
and heat treatment
Measurement of material data and boundary conditions (e.g. heat transfer) for process simulation
Who should attend?
The conference will be a forum for engineers and researchers from universities as well as industry who are dealing with distortion phenomena in the whole process chain experimentally or by modeling and computer simulation. The conference also addresses experts who are engaged in measurement and control of distortion relevant parameters or who are looking at the field of distortion from a production management perspective.
The conference is organized by the SFB 570 - Distortion Engineering(www.sfb570.uni-bremen.de) in close cooperation with the Foundation Institute of Materials Science (IWT)(www.iwt-bremen.de), sponsored by the German Research Association (DFG)(www.dfg.de) and the University of Bremen(www.uni-bremen.de) and supported by the German Association for Materials and Heat Treatment (AWT)(www.awt-online.org) and the International Federation of Heat Treatment and Surface Engineering (IFHTSE) (www.ifhtse.org).
Collaborative Research Center “Distortion Engineering”
In 2001, the DFG established the “Distortion Engineering” (www.sfb570.uni-bremen.de) at the University of Bremen. At the end of 2011 this CRC will finish its work and during IDE 2011 the final results will be presented.
