A simplified experimental technique to determine the axial fiber residual strain in continuously-reinforced metal matrix composites is described. The residual fiber strains in two Ti-15V-3Cr-3Al-3Sn/SiC metal matrix composites have been measured with this technique. Residual fiber strains on the order of 0.2% are measured in the as-processed condition, and the residual stresses approach zero after testing the composite in tension to failure at room temperature. A conceptual description of the effect of tensile testing on the residual stresses is provided. The experimental results are consistent with predictions based on a concentric cylinder iso-strain analysis of thermal strains. Measurement errors result in a residual fiber strain error that is typically less than ±0.05%. Periodic fiber bending induced by cross-weave fibers is also analyzed, and may contribute significantly to measurement errors.

A computational procedure for estimating residual stresses and secondary plastic flow limits in nonlinearly strain hardening rotating shafts
Eraslan, Ahmet Nedim (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2005-03-01)
A computational procedure to estimate the residual stress distributions and the limit angular speeds for avoiding secondary plastic deformation in nonlinearly strain hardening rotating elastic-plastic shafts is given. The model is based on von Mises yield condition, J(2) deformation theory and a Swift-type hardening law. The boundary value problem for the governing nonlinear differential equation is solved by a shooting method using Newton iterations with numerically approximated tangent. Solid as well as h...
A Modeling Study on the Layout Impact of with-in-die Thickness Range for STI CMP
Kıncal, Serkan; BAŞIM DOĞAN, GÜL BAHAR (2012-10-01)
Chemical Mechanical Planarization process has a proven track record as an effective method for planarizing the wafer surface at multiple points of the semiconductor manufacturing flow. One of the most challenging aspects of the CMP process, particularly in applications like Shallow Trench Isolation (STI), is the difference in relative removal rates of the different materials that are being polished. A certain amount of over-polish is required to clear oxide on top of the nitride, however, this over-polish m...
Assessment of a frequency-domain linearised Euler solver for turbofan aft radiation predictions and comparison with measurements
Özyörük, Yusuf (2010-03-31)
This paper presents a frequency-domain computational aeroacoustics tool for predicting aft noise radiation through turbofan ducts and jets and its application to two realistic engine exhaust configurations which have been experimentally tested. The tool is based on the discretised axisymmetric form of the linearised Euler equations in conjunction with perfectly matched layer equations at the inlet and far-field boundaries using high-order finite differences. The resultant linear system of equations is inver...

An experimental apparatus was designed, built and used to study the behavior of transient forced convection in a rectangular duct with and without barriers due to a sinusoidal heat input at the inlet. to simulate the electric heating and cooling inside the computer. A wide range of Reynolds number (400 less-than-or-equal-to Re less-than-or-equal-to 20,000) and inlet frequencies (0.01 Hz less-than-or-equal-to beta less-than-or-equal-to 0.08 Hz) was covered in this experimental study for both laminar and turb...

An optimisation approach is presented for the problem of reconstructing the permittivity and conductivity profiles of a dielectric slab from the reflected and transmitted field data. The problem is treated as an optimal control problem where the norm of the difference of measured and calculated boundary data is minimised subject to the state equation governing the system. The original constrained optimisation problem is reduced to the evaluation of stationary points of an augmented functional which is obtai...
