Analysis of hypersonic flow using three dimensional navier-stokes equations

2016
Özgün, Muharrem
Metallic materials in aerospace structures are exposed to impact type loads depending on their usage area. High strain rate material characterization of metallic materials is very crucial to properly prepare finite element models to be used in impact loading situations. Johnson-Cook material model is a suitable material model to represent the behaviour of metallic materials at high strain rates. In the present thesis study, parameters of the Johnson-Cook material model for Al 7075-T651 are determined utilizing the tensile test data in quasi-static loading condition and impact test data for impact loading condition. High strain rate material characterization of the metallic material is performed by the modified Taylor impact test and velocity interferometry. Modified Taylor impact test system and how the free surface velocity measurement by the velocity interferometry-VISAR is utilized for the determination of the strain rate constant of the Johnson-Cook material model are described in detail. Experimentally determined material constants are verified by simulating the modified Taylor impact test in Autodyn and comparing the experimentally and numerically determined free surface velocities.

Computational Investigation of the 3-D effects on Dynamic Fracture of Curved Composite Laminates
Tamer Tahir, Ata; Çöker, Demirkan (2018-09-07)
Composite materials are used more and more in aerospace, commercial and industrial applications due to high specific stiffness, strength and damage tolerance capability. The main advantage of composite materials, it allows the stiffness and strength of the material to change with direction of loading. Hence tailoring structıres to meet load requirements reduces weight and allows designer to optimize structure. Considering all these advantages, primary and secondary structural elements of recent commercial a...
Use of artificial neural network in rotorcraft cooling system
Akin, Altug; Kahveci, Harika Senem (2019-07-01)
In this study, an Artificial Neural Network (ANN) is used to determine the surface temperatures of the avionics equipment located in an avionics bay of a rotorcraft. The bay is cooled via a system of a fan that supplies ambient air to the interior of the bay and an exhaust. A Feedforward Multi-Layer ANN is used with the input parameters of the fan and exhaust locations and the air mass flow rate of the fan. For training of the network, the results obtained by a large number of Computational Fluid Dynamics (...
Investigation of wear behavior of aged and non-aged SiC-reinforced AlSi7Mg2 metal matrix composites in dry sliding conditions
ÇELİK, YAHYA HIŞMAN; Demir, Mehmet Emin; KILIÇKAP, EROL; Kalkanlı, Ali (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-01-01)
Metal matrix composites (MMCs) with their splendid mechanical properties have been specifically designed for use in fields such as aerospace and aviation. The presence of hard ceramic particles in MMC increases the hardness of the matrix product and decreases its coefficient of friction. Therefore, the wear resistance is improved. Moreover, the mechanical properties of these composite materials can be improved by applying heat treatments. In this study, AlSi7Mg2 MMCs with 15 wt% SiC reinforcement were produ...
MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF REPAIRED CARBON FIBER REINFORCED POLYMER COMPOSITES
Sonat, Emine Evren; Özerinç, Sezer; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2021-12-10)
Carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) composites are increasingly used in the aerospace industry due to their high specific strength compared to conventional metallic materials. However, a significant shortcoming of these composites is their increased susceptibility to damage. Structural repair is a common method to restore the load-carrying capacity of a damaged part when the damage size exceeds the pre-defined tolerances. Scarf and stepped bonded repair methods are the primary choice for cases that requi...
