  • Hydro-thermo-mechanical effects in fractured rocks are important in many oilfield processes. Modeling these effects is made difficult by the fact that the governing equations are nonlinear and coupled, and the problems to be solved are three dimensional. In this paper the authors describe a numerical code developed for this purpose. The code is finite element based to allow for complicated geometries, and the time differencing is implicit, allowing for large time steps. The use of state-of-the-art equation solvers has resulted in a practical code. An example is presented to demonstrate the effects of matrix expansion, due to pore pressure andmore » heating, on fracture opening due to fluid injection, and induced stress changes at a distant well bore. 19 refs., 9 figs., 3 tabs.« less
  • Temperature and stress fields during Laser Cladding determine, respectively, the microstructure and residual stress induced deformation and crack formation. As laser cladding processes find application in manufacturing, understanding of the temperature and stress fields becomes crucial for development of the relationship between process parameters and service behavior. A two-dimensional model of laser cladding is developed, using the finite element software package ABAQUS. It enables an investigation of the temperature field that develops at the center plane of the material. This temperature field provides the input for a thermal stress analysis, for which generalized plane strain was assumed. The goal ofmore » the present paper is to perform a quantitative evaluation of the residual stresses that develop at the two-layered material, as a function of process parameters such as scanning speed, laser power and powder feed rate. Results of the model are presented, as applied to cladding of C95600 on AA333.« less
  • A fully-coupled, implicit technique is developed to solve the MPD equations in two dimensions. This technique permits a wide range of MPD flow phenomena, including Hall current, and allows thermo-chemical nonequilibrium. The numerical scheme is based on Steger-Warming flux splitting, and time advancement is by Gauss-Seidel line relaxation. 15 refs.
  • A new computer code was developed to analyze the chemically reactive flow and spray combustion processes occurring inside a stratified-charge rotary engine. Mathematical and numerical details of the new code were recently described by the present authors. The results are presented of limited, initial computational trials as a first step in a long-term assessment/validation process. The engine configuration studied was chosen to approximate existing rotary engine flow visualization and hot firing test rigs. Typical results include: (1) pressure and temperature histories, (2) torque generated by the nonuniform pressure distribution within the chamber, (3) energy release rates, and (4) various flow-relatedmore » phenomena. These are discussed and compared with other predictions reported in the literature. The adequacy or need for improvement in the spray/combustion models and the need for incorporating an appropriate turbulence model are also discussed.« less
