Analytical and numerical solutions to rotating orthotropic disk problems

Kaya, Yasemin
Analytical and numerical models are developed to investigate the effect of orthotropy on the stress distribution in variable thickness solid and annular rotating disks. The plastic treatment is based on Hill’s quadratic yield criterion, total deformation theory, and Swift’s hardening law. The elastic-plastic stress distributions, residual stresses and radial displacement distributions are obtained after having analysed the cases of rotating solid disk, annular disk with rigid inclusion, annular disk subjected to either internal or external pressure. Thermal loading is also considered for the annular disk with rigid inclusion. Effects of different values of elastic and plastic orthotropy parameters are investigated. It is observed that the elastic orthotropy significantly affects the residual stresses in disks. The most remarkable effect of the plastic orthotropy is observed on the disk with rigid inclusion.


Thermal stress intensity factor evaluation for inclined cracks in functionally graded materials using Jk-integral method
Demirçivi, Bengi; Dağ, Serkan; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2006)
The main objective of this study is to evaluate mixed mode stress intensity factors for inclined embedded cracks in functionally graded materials. Fracture analysis of inclined cracks requires the calculation of both Mode I and Mode II stress intensity factors ( I K , II K ). In this study, k J -integral is used to calculate I K and II K . Equivalent domain integral approach is utilized to evaluate the k J - integral around the crack tip. The present study aims at developing a finite element model to study ...
Stress distributions in elastic-plastic rotating disks with elliptical thickness profiles using Tresca and von Mises criteria
Eraslan, Ahmet Nedim (Wiley, 2005-04-01)
Analytical and numerical solutions for the elastic-plastic stress distribution in rotating variable thickness solid and annular disks are obtained under plane stress assumption. The thickness of the disk is assumed to vary radially in elliptic form which represents a wide range of continuously variable nonlinear cross-sectional profiles. Tresca's yield criterion and its associated flow rule are used to obtain analytical solutions for a linear hardening material. A computational model is developed to obtain ...
Non-linear mathematical modeling of gear rotor bearing systems including bearing clearance
Gürkan, Niyazi Ersan; Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2005)
In this study, a non-linear mathematical model of gear-rotor systems which consists of elastic shafts on elastic bearings with clearance and coupled by a non-linear gear mesh interface is developed. The mathematical model and the software (NLGRD 2.0) developed in a previous study is extended to include the non-linear effects due to bearing clearances by using non-linear bearing models. The model developed combines the versatility of using finite element method and the rigorous treatment of non-linear effect...
Forced vibrations of functionally graded annular and circular plates by domain-boundary element method
Eshraghi, Iman; Dağ, Serkan (Wiley, 2020-08-01)
Axi-symmetric dynamic response of functionally graded circular and annular Mindlin plates with through-the-thickness variations of physical properties is investigated by a new domain-boundary element formulation. Three governing partial differential equations of motion of the inhomogeneous plate are converted to integral equations by utilizing the static fundamental solutions of the displacement components. These integral equations are then spatially discretized by dividing the entire domain into a number o...
Computational and experimental study of high-speed impact of metallic Taylor cylinders
Konokman, H. Emrah; Coruh, M. Murat; Kayran, Altan (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2011-08-01)
High-speed impact of metallic Taylor cylinders is investigated computationally and experimentally. On the computational side, a modular explicit finite element hydrocode based on updated Lagrangian formulation is developed. A non-classical contour integration is employed to calculate the nodal forces in the constant strain axisymmetric triangular elements. Cell and nodal averaging of volumetric strain formulations are implemented on different mesh architectures to reduce the incompressibility constraints an...
