Tensile plastic instability phenomenon is defined as the mode of deformation so that large amounts of deformation is localized in a certain region of a component during product life or testing procedure. Several studies have been published to assess the methods proposed to predict tensile plastic instability and necking behavior of materials. Although research has been done by using various specimens, comparative results on different specimen materials and geometries as well as different test methods have not been covered in most of these studies. The purpose of this work is to investigate tensile plastic instability and necking prediction methods both experimentally and numerically. Two classical procedures have been selected: Uniaxial tensile test and deep drawing process, since they are still among the most common applications in the literature. To observe different material characteristics, Al2024T3 and S235JR specimens underwent several tensile tests. Both materials were used to manufacture cylindrical and sheet tensile test specimens. Furthermore, straight, tapered and notched forms of both cylindrical and sheet specimens have been tested and the results are compared. Further, Al2024T3 material specimens are used in cylindrical cup, round bottom cup and square cup deep drawing processes to review the applicability of the tensile test results. The efficiency, precision and effectivity of tensile plastic instability and necking prediction methods have been discussed based on the finite element analysis results. The generalization of the methods so that they can be applied in any plastic deformation analysis is another focus point of this thesis.

Dagar, Volkan; Çokça, Erdal (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-08-01)
The tensile strength of clay is a major mechanical parameter and the main controlling parameter of tensile crack development which is generally encountered in geostructures. In this experimental study, 8-shaped direct tensile test and split tensile test were used to measure the tensile strength of compacted clay soil. Unconfined compression tests on the same clay samples were also carried out. Tensile strength and unconfined compression test results were compared. Laboratory tests were performed on Ankara c...
Analysis of thermomechanical cyclic behavior of unidirectional metal matrix composites
Çöker, Demirkan; Nicholas, Theodore (1993-01-01)
An analytical tool is developed to determine the three-dimensional stress state in a unidirectional composite subjected to axial loading and changes in temperature. A finite difference method is used to analyze a representative volume element of the composite which consists of concentric cylinders. The constituents are assumed to be elastic-plastic materials having temperature dependent properties. An iterative technique using the Prandtl-Reuss flow rule to determine incremental plastic strains is implement...
Study on the Structural and Electrical Properties of Sequentially Deposited Ag-Ga-In-Te Thin Films
Coskun, EMRE; Gullu, H. H.; Parlak, Mehmet; Ercelebi, C. (2015-02-01)
The structural properties and electrical conduction mechanisms of Ag-Ga-In-Te thin films deposited by a combination of e-beam and thermal evaporation methods were studied for various annealing temperatures. Structural analysis showed the existence of InTe and InTe binary phases at the early stage of crystallization and monophase of AgGaInTe with the main orientation along (112) direction following the post-annealing at 400 C. The effects of the structural changes on electrical properties and temperature dep...
Assessment of flow and heat transfer characteristics for proposed solid density distributions in dilute laminar slurry upflows through a concentric annulus
Eraslan, Ahmet Nedim (Elsevier BV, 2003-09-01)
A computational model is developed to predict the hydrodynamic and heat transfer characteristics of dilute liquid-solid laminar upflows through a concentric annulus. The dilute slurry is treated as a single phase Newtonian fluid of locally variable physical and thermal properties. Available experimental data of radial solid density distributions in dilute water-feldspar annular upflows is used in the model. Various important characteristics of laminar slurry flows were successfully predicted. It was also sh...
Investigation of structural and optical parameters of Cu-Ag-In-Se thin films deposited by thermal evaporation method
Gullu, H. H.; CANDAN, İDRİS; COŞKUN, EMRE; Parlak, Mehmet (2015-01-01)
Annealing effect on the structural and optical properties of the quaternary Cu-Ag-In-Se thin film deposited by the thermal evaporation has been investigated. The evaporation source was prepared by using vertical Bridgman-Stockbarger crystal growth system. Structural analysis indicated that annealing the films following to the deposition resulted in the changes from amorphous to polycrystalline phase with the preferred orientation along (1 1 2) direction. In order to determine the optical properties of the t...
