# Limit angular velocities of variable thickness rotating disks

2002-06-01
Elastic and plastic limit angular velocities are calculated for rotating disks of variable thickness in power function form. Analytical solution is obtained and used to calculate elastic limit angular velocities of variable thickness rotating annular disks and annular disks with rigid inclusion. An efficient numerical solution procedure is designed and used to obtain the elastic limit angular velocities of variable thickness rotating solid disks. Von Mises yield criterion and its flow rule is used to estimate plastic limit angular velocities. Both linear and nonlinear hardening material behaviors are treated numerically. The results are verified by comparing with those of uniform thickness rotating solid disks available in the literature. Elastic and plastic limit angular velocities are found to increase with the reduction of the disk thickness at the edge as well as the reduction in the disk mass due to the shape of the profile.

 Elastic-plastic deformation of a rotating solid disk of exponentially varying thickness Eraslan, Ahmet Nedim (2002-07-01) The elastic-plastic deformation of a rotating solid disk of variable thickness in exponential form is investigated using Tresca's yield criterion, its associated flow rule and linear strain hardening. An analytical solution is obtained and numerical results are presented for different values of the geometric parameters. In the limiting case of uniform thickness the solution reduces to Garner's solution.
 Von mises yield criterion and nonlinearly hardening variable thickness rotating annular disks with rigid inclusion Eraslan, Ahmet Nedim (2002-09-01) A computational model is developed to investigate inelastic deformations of variable thickness rotating annular disks mounted on rigid shafts. The von Mises yield condition and its flow rule are combined with Swift's hardening law to simulate nonlinear hardening material behavior. An efficient numerical solution procedure is designed and used throughout to handle the nonlinearities associated with the von Mises yield condition and the boundary condition at the shaft-annular disk interface. The results of th...
 A Class of Nonisothermal Variable Thickness Rotating Disk Problems Solved by Hypergeometric Functions Eraslan, Ahmet Nedim (2005-06-01) Exact solutions for nonisothermal variable thickness rotating disks represented by different thickness profiles are obtained under plane stress assumption. The solutions are based on Tresca's yield criterion, its associated flow rule and linear strain hardening material behavior. Five different plastic regimes governed by different mathematical forms of the yield criterion are considered for each thickness profile. A displacement formulation is used and the resulting differential equations for the elastic a...
 Analytical and numerical solutions to rotating variable thickness disks for a new thickness profile Eraslan, Ahmet Nedim (2015-09-01)
 Analytical and Numerical Solutions to Rotating Variable Thickness Disks for a New Thickness Profile Eraslan, Ahmet Nedim (2014-09-28) Analytical and numerical solutions to rotating variable thickness disks are obtained. A new one-parameter exponential model is used to express the variation of disk thickness. It is shown by taking the limit that the present analytical solution reduces to the well-known homogeneous thickness solution. Furthermore, analytical and numerical solutions are brought into view together to allow comparison and further verification. The results of the solutions are presented in tables and figures to provide benchmar...
