  • Residual stresses in a body arise from nonuniform plastic deformation and continue to be an important consideration in the design and the fabrication of metal components. The finite element method offers a potentially powerful tool for predicting these stresses. However, it is important to first verify this method through careful analysis and experimentation. This paper describes experiments using neutron and x-ray diffraction to provide quantitative data to compare to finite element analysis predictions of deformation induced residual stress in a plane stress austenitic stainless steel ring. Good agreement was found between the experimental results and the numerical predictions. Effects ofmore » the formulation of the finite element model on the analysis, constitutive parameters and effects of machining damage in the experiments are addressed.« less
  • A method is presented which allows the vessel engineer to more accurately evaluate the flexibility and stresses in vessel nozzles within the time and expense parameters associated with the normal design process. In a critical process piping system design, the vessel design engineer first calculates nozzle stiffnesses for inclusion of the nozzle spring constants in the piping system analysis. The loads generated from piping analysis are then fed back to the vessel engineer for stress calculation. In an earlier paper ``Improving the Accuracy of Piping Programs When Analyzing Closely Coupled Equipment,`` the wide divergence in nozzle stiffnesses and stresses computedmore » by the available formula approaches was illustrated. Additionally, it was shown that it is desirable to use the Finite Element Approach to better assess both the stiffnesses and the stresses in vessel nozzles. To facilitate FE nozzle modeling, a parametric-driven program was developed to aid the vessel engineer in using the FE program COSMOS/M.« less
  • The process of grain boundary migration involves moving interfaces and topological changes of grain boundary geometry. This can not be effectively modeled by Lagrangian, Eulerian, or arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian finite element formulation when stress effect is considered. A coupled finite element and meshfree approach is proposed for modeling of grain boundary migration under stress. In this formulation, the material grid carries material kinematic and kinetic variables, whereas the grain boundary grid carries grain boundary kinematic variables. The material domain is discretized by a reproducing kernel partition of unity with built-in strain discontinuity across the grain boundaries. The grain boundaries, onmore » the other hand, are discretized by the standard finite elements. This approach allows an arbitrary evolution of grain boundaries without continuous remeshing.« less
