Title: Solid State Bonding Mechanics In Extrusion And FSW: Experimental Tests And Numerical Analyses

Abstract

In the paper the authors compare the different solid state bonding mechanics for both the processes of hollow profiles extrusion and Friction Stir Welding (FSW), through the results obtained from a wide experimental campaign on AA6082-T6 aluminum alloys. Microstructure evaluation, tensile tests and micro-hardness measurements realized on specimens extracted by samples of the two processes are discussed also by means of the results obtained from coupled FEM simulation of the processes.

  • This work has been performed along two main directions. First of all we present the experimental results and effects obtained by backward extrusion tests on semi-solid aluminum alloy at three different forming temperatures and different holding times in isothermal conditions. The semi-solid billets were fabricated by the re-melting heat treatment method. Semi-solid extrusion tests were carried out to investigate the load-displacement curves and the deformation behaviour at different temperatures. The load level clearly decreases with increasing temperature and increasing holding time. Numerical simulations of semi-solid extrusion has been made too, using Forge 2005,. Experimental and simulated results are compared andmore » discussed.« less
  • Most applications of ceramics in devices and structures require some type of ceramic-metal joining. Various processes are available for joining. Two most frequently used techniques are liquid phase joining and solid state bonding. This paper describes the mechanisms leading to the formation of high strength bonds and the mechanical behavior of ceramic-metal multimaterials made by solid state bonding. In this process, bonding is achieved through two stages: (a) morphological adaptation of the surfaces to be joined and (b) subsequent formation of bonds: van de Waals interactions, chemical bonds by simple recovery of the molecular orbitals or growth of intermediate phases.more » From the mechanical point of view, the study of ceramic-metal interfaces has to consider other factors like: interfacial fracture mechanics, residual stresses, modifications, damages and embrittlement of materials near the interface, as well as many physico-chemical aspects. Thus, a complete understanding of ceramic-metal structures requires an overall analysis of properties of bulk materials and interfaces in the joining area.« less
  • We present a numerical model for the transient response of a longitudinally pumped miniature solid-state laser. The model is suitable for both regenerative amplifiers and oscillators, provided the latter run in a single mode. The results of our calculations compare well with measurements of the peak output powers and pulse widths for a Nd:YAG rod pumped by a ten-stripe diode laser array. Our model predicts saturation at peak powers of approximately twice the 850 mW reported here due to filling of the lower laser level. To overcome this power limitation due to saturation, we also explore the use of miniaturemore » Nd:glass laser amplifiers to boost the single-frequency Nd:YAG pulses to powers exceeding 200 W.« less
  • Experimental investigation, including hot compression and simple closed die filling was performed. Temperature range of tests was between 1225 deg. C and 1320 deg. C. Temperature selection was adequate with liquid fraction between 20 and 60%, which is typical for thixoforming processes. In the die filling test, steel dies with ceramic layer was used (highly refractory air-setting mortar JM 3300 manufactured by Thermal Ceramics). Experiments were carried out on the Gleeble 3800 physical simulator with MCU unit. In the paper, methodology of experimental investigation is described. Dependency of forming forces on temperature and forming velocities is analysed. Obtained results aremore » discussed. The second part of the paper concerns numerical modelling of semi-solid forming. Numerical models for both sets of test were developed. Structural and Computational Fluid Dynamics models are compared. Initial works in microstructural modelling of 210CR12 steel behaviour are described. Lattice Boltzman Method model for thixotropic flows is introduced. Microscale and macroscale models were integrated into multiscale simulation of semi-solid forming. Some fundamental issues related to multiscale modelling of thixoforming are discussed.« less
