Title: Numerical Design Of Experiments to Analyse the Contact Conditions in Microforming

Abstract

In microforming, the so-called size effects can be observed in the material flow behaviour as well as in the frictional behaviour. In order to study the frictional behaviour a preliminary numerical characterization of the surface tribology has been carried out. A numerical design of experiments (DOE) is based on cylinder upsetting tests to define the influence of surface geometric properties on the resultant force. The simulations have been performed with the finite element software LS-Dyna by using an axisymmetric model. The mechanical behaviour of the cylinder specimen was described by an elastic-plastic material law, whereas the upsetting plates were assumed to be rigid. The workpiece is considered to be a copper alloy (CuZn10). The average roughness Ra and the average mean spacing Sm have been chosen to describe surface roughness properties. The tool and workpiece surfaces have been modelled using a sinusoidal profile. The five input parameters of the DOE are the amplitude and the period of the two sinusoidal profiles and the phase displacement between them. The analysis of variance shows the statistically significant parameters or interactions.

  • Calculations with numerical models are often referred to as numerical experiments, by analogy to classical laboratory experiments. Usually, many numerical experiments are carried out to determine the response of a numerical model to variations of internal or external parameters over some range of interest. If individual experiments are inexpensive to carry out, and if the number of independent parameters is small, it may be possible to search the entire parameter space of the model. This is difficult, however, if the dimension of the parameter space is even moderately large or the codes are expensive to run. In this paper methodsmore » are presented for the design and analysis of numerical experiments that are especially useful and efficient in multidimensional parameter spaces. The analysis method, which is similar to kriging in the spatial analysis literature, fits a statistical model to the output of the numerical model. As an example, the method is applied to a fully nonlinear, global, equivalent-barotropic dynamical model. The statistical model also provides estimates of the uncertainty of predicted numerical model output, which can provide guidance on where in the parameter space to conduct further experiments, if necessary. The method can provide major improvements in the efficiency with which numerical sensitivity experiments are conducted. 17 refs., 9 figs., 2 tabs.« less
  • Special Nova hohlraums have been designed to simulate the plasma conditions calculated for various NIF hohlraum point designs. These hohlraums attempt to maximize the laser pathlength for parametric instability measurements. A toroidal-shaped hohlraum with a diameter of 3200 microns and a length of 1600 microns allows a laser pathlength of about 2 mm. Filling the hohlraum with 1 atmosphere of neopentane gas gives an electron temperature of 3 keV and electron density near 0.1 of critical. Detailed LASNEX calculations for these hohlraums and comparisons to the NIF point design will be presented. Comparisons between data and calculations that characterize themore » plasma conditions (electron, radiation, and ion temperatures, electron density, etc.) in these Nova hohlraums will also be shown. {copyright} {ital 1996 American Institute of Physics.}« less
  • Designers of aircraft engines frequently employ shrouds in turbine design. In this paper, a variable normal load friction force model is proposed to investigate the influence of shroudlike contact kinematics on the forced response of frictionally constrained turbine blades. Analytical criteria are formulated to predict the transitions between stick, slip, and separation of the interface so as to assess the induced friction forces. When considering cyclic loading, the induced friction forces are combined with the variable normal load so as to determine the effective stiffness and damping of the friction joint over a cycle of motion. The harmonic balance methodmore » is then used to impose the effective stiffness and damping of the friction joint on the linear structure. The solution procedure for the nonlinear response of a two-degree-of-freedom oscillator is demonstrated. As an application, this procedure is used to study the coupling effect of two constrained forces, friction force and variable normal load, on the optimization of the shroud contact design.« less
  • Close-contact-melting heat-transfer characteristics, including natural convection in the liquid region of cylindrical capsules, were studied theoretically. Elucidation of such heat-transfer mechanisms is of great importance from the viewpoint of cost-effective ice-storage and heat-storage employing the latent heat-of-fusion thermal-energy storage (TES) concept. The Growth Ring Method (GRM) was used as a numerical tool to handle the moving interface between the liquid and solid regions. The computed isotherms, streamlines, and stored-heat fractions were clarified in detail. In particular, special attention was focused on the role of natural convection in the upper liquid region. Hitherto, no exact numerical analysis has been made tomore » clarify the contribution of natural convection.« less
  • In Part 1 of this paper, analytical development of a method was presented for the solution of frictionless contact problems of multilayered half-planes consisting of an arbitrary number of isotropic, orthotropic, or monoclinic layers arranged in any sequence. The local/global stiffness matrix approach similar to the one proposed by Bufler (1971) was employed in formulating the surface mixed boundary condition for the unknown stress in the contact region. This approach naturally facilitates decomposition of the integral equation for the contact stress distribution on the top surface of an arbitrarily laminated half-plane into singular and regular parts that, in turn, canmore » be solved using a numerical collocation technique. In Part 2 of this paper, a number of numerical examples is presented addressing the effect of off-axis plies on contact stress distribution and load versus contact length in layered half-planes laminated with undirectionally reinforced composite plies. The results indicate that for the considered unidirectional composite, the load versus contact length response is significantly influenced by the orientation of the surface layer and the underlying half-plane, while the corresponding contact stress profiles are considerably less affected.« less
