Modeling of Hot Isostatic Pressing
This article discusses the two major applications of hot isostatic pressing (HIP), such as healing of inherent internal defects in castings and welds, and consolidation of powder materials. It describes the design principles of the HIP tooling, as well as the problems associated with mathematical modeling of HIP. The article presents an example for the modeling process of the HIP. It reviews the numerical modeling and tooling design of a casing component demonstration.
