Analysis on development of incremental ring rolling process

Öztop, Muin Süleyman
In this study, a novel incremental ring rolling process used in production of rings with various cross sections is examined. A basic type of this process is investigated numerically, using commercial finite element programs; MSC Superform, MSC Marc. The user defined subroutines are also utilized for flexibility in modeling. The aim of modeling is to determine the material flow for geometrical analysis, strain/stress distribution for tool force analysis and residual stresses, in a cost effective way. The process has instabilities and requires large number of incremental stages to complete a full finite element simulation. The full models are reliable but costly hence the numerical studies are focused on reliable simplified models with lower computation time. Different approaches are developed: three-dimensional segment model, improved segment model, velocity coupling model. The results of these models are compared with experimentally verified full models. Numerical parameters such as mesh type, step size, convergence ratio are examined. After verification of the model different applications to of the process is developed and physical parameters affecting the process are discussed; such as the tool path .


Simulations for a novel magnetic resonator with V-shaped structures
Ekmekci, Evren; Sayan, Gönül (2007-01-01)
It is demonstrated in this paper that a novel structure which consists of V-shaped conducting strips may exhibit magnetic resonance effect similar to the split ring resonator structures. The simulations have been done using Ansoft HFSS v9.2. By applying a time varying electric field to the V-shaped structure, the location of the resulting resonant frequency has been determined and furthermore, the dependency of resonance frequency on arm width, arm angle, and dielectric thickness have been investigated.
Modeling and Analysis of a Microfluidic Capillary Valve
Yıldırım, Ender (2017-04-01)
Here, a numerical model for analysis of a capillary valve for use in microfluidic devices was presented. Capillary valves are preferred especially in passive microfluidic systems, where the capillary forces dominate the liquid motion, to manipulate the flow. The capillary valve in this work, was formed by the sudden expansion of a rectangular microchannel to an opening, whose depth and width are larger than the height and the width of the channel respectively. Noting that there was no available analytical m...
A constitutive model for finite deformation of amorphous polymers
FLEISCHHAUER, R.; Dal, Hüsnü; KALISKE, M.; SCHNEIDER, K. (2012-12-01)
The paper introduces a three-dimensional constitutive model for the mechanical behavior of amorphous polymers, thermosets and thermoplastics. The approach is formulated in terms of finite deformations, appropriate for glassy polymers. The rheology of the model consists of a Langevin-type free energy function for the energy storage due to molecular alignment connected in parallel to a Maxwell element with a viscoplastic dashpot. The model proves successful for the constitutive description of glassy polymers ...
Computational elastodynamics of functionally graded thick-walled cylinders and annular coatings subjected to pressure shocks
Abeidi, Abdelrahim; Dağ, Serkan (2022-12-01)
A computational technique based on domain-boundary element method (D-BEM) is developed for elastodynamic analysis of functionally graded thick-walled cylinders and annular coatings subjected to pressure shock type of loadings. The formulation is built on the wave equation, which is derived in accordance with plane elastody-namics. Weighted residual statement for the wave equation is expressed by using the static fundamental solution as the weight function. Applying integration by parts and incorporating the...
A procedure on ground motion selection and scaling for nonlinear response of simple structural systems
Ay, Bekir Özer (2012-10-01)
This study presents a ground-motion selection and scaling methodology that preserves the basic seismological features of the scaled records with reduced scatter in the nonlinear structural response. The methodology modifies each strong-motion recording with known fundamental seismological parameters using the estimations of ground-motion prediction equations for a given target hazard level. It provides robust estimations on target building response through scaled ground motions and calculates the dispersion...
