Title: Combined macro-meso scale modeling of sintering. Part II, Mesoscale simulations

Abstract

A mesoscale kinetic Monte Carlo model is presented to simulate microstructural evolution during sintering of 2D complex microstructures which evolves by grain growth, pore migration and densification. No assumptions about the geometry of the evolving microstructure are made. The results of these simulations are used to generate sintering stress and normalize viscous bulk modulus for use in continuum level simulation of sintering. The advantage of these simulations is that they can be used to generate more accurate parameters as various assumptions regarding geometry and transport mechanism are made. The previous companion paper used the results from the mesoscale simulations to simulate shrinkage and warpage in sintering of bilayer ceramics.

  • An integrated approach, including a continuum theory of sintering and mesostructure evolution analysis, is used for the solution of the problem of bi-layered structure sintering. Two types of bi-layered structures are considered: layers of the same material different by initial porosity, and layers of two different materials. The effective sintering stress and the normalized bulk modulus for the bi-layer powder sintering are derived based on mesoscale simulations. The combined effect of the layers' porosity and differences in sintering rate on shrinkage and warpage is studied for both sintering on a rigid substrate and free sintering.
  • A new numerical model has been developed in order to study the plastic deformation of mesoscopic crystalline samples under complex boundary conditions. The model is based on the coupling of two types of simulations, a dislocation dynamics and a finite element code. The former accounts for the dislocation-based plastic properties of the material, thus replacing the usual constitutive form, while the latter treats the boundary value problem and cares of the mechanical equilibrium. In order to test the hybrid simulation and examine its accuracy, the self-stress fields of straight dislocations have been computed in a single crystal of finite sizemore » and compared with the predictions of the isotropic elasticity theory. The excellent agreement obtained emphasizes the enormous potential of such hybrid methods for a rigorous treatment of meso-macro problems in plasticity.« less

  • A mesoscale atmospheric dispersion (MAD) numerical modeling system, consisting of a mesoscale meteorological model coupled to a mesoscale Lagrangian particle dispersion model, was used to simulate transport and diffusion of a perfluorocarbon tracer-gas cloud for a surface release during the July 1980 Great Plains mesoscale tracer field experiment. Ground-level concentration (GLC) measurements taken downwind of the release site up to three days after the tracer release were available for comparison. Quantitative measures of significant dispersion characteristics obtained from analysis of the tracer cloud`s moving GLC {open_quotes}footprint{close_quotes} were used to evaluate the simulation of the MAD case. MAD is more dependentmore » on the spatial and temporal structure of the transport wind field than is short-range atmospheric dispersion. For the tracer experiment, the observations suggest that the nocturnal low-level jet played an important role in transporting and deforming the tracer cloud. Ten two- and three-dimensional numerical meteorological experiments were devised to investigate the relative contributions of topography, other surface inhomogeneities, atmospheric baroclinicity, synoptic-scale flow evolution, and meteorological model initialization time to the structure and evolution of the low-level mesoscale flow field and thus to MAD. Results from the meteorological simulations are compared in this paper. The predicted wind fields display significant differences, which give rise in turn to significant differences in predicted low-level transport. The presence of an oscillatory ageostrophic component in the observed synoptic low-level winds for this case is shown to complicate initialization of the meteorological model considerably and is the likely cause of directional errors in the predicted mean tracer transport. A companion paper describes the results from the associated dispersion simulations. 76 refs., 13 figs., 6 tabs.« less
