Effect of boundary conditions and workpiece geometry on residual stresses and microstructure in quenching process

Gür, Cemil Hakan
Schuler, W
In this study, the internal and residual stress states in quenched C60 steel cylinders are analyzed both numerically and experimentally in order to investigate the effects of boundary conditions (such as quench severity and temperature of quench bath) and specimen geometry Specimen geometry has been analyzed by introducing a hole in a cylinder arid varying hole diameter and its' eccentricity. In the numerical analysis, the finite element method is applied and both temperature gradients and Phase transformations are considered. Experiments include microstructural examination and X-ray measurements of residual stresses of the first kind. it has been found that the value of the convective heat transfer coefficient is very critical to obtain simulation results close to real Ones. For instance; when a constant value obtained as the mean of a temperature dependent distribution is used for this parameter, residual stresses are seriously underestimated (up to 40%). The temperature of the quench bath affects directly the convective heat transfer coefficient. The lower the bath temperature, the higher are the resulting residual stresses. Under the same quenching conditions, if the diameter of the hole is greater than a critical value, a transition occurs from the shallow hardening case to the through hardening case, i.e., the residual stress distribution is reversed. On the other hand, for a constant hole diameter, if the eccentricity ratio reaches a critical value, a complex residual stress state results, i.e., compressive/tensile stress transition regions along the circumference are observed.


Effect of cyclic thermal loading on the performance of steel H-piles in integral bridges with stub-abutments
Dicleli, Murat (Elsevier BV, 2004-02-01)
In this paper, analytical equations are developed to estimate the lateral displacement capacity of steel-H piles in integral bridges with stub abutments subjected to cyclic thermal variations. First, steel H piles that are capable of sustaining large plastic deformations are identified based on their local buckling strength. The normalized moment-curvature relationships of these piles are then obtained for various axial load levels. Next, a low-cycle fatigue damage model is employed to determine the maximum...
Effect of surface roughness in microchannels on heat transfer
Turgay, Metin Bilgehan; Güvenç Yazıcıoğlu, Almıla; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2008)
In this study, effect of surface roughness on convective heat transfer and fluid flow in two dimensional parallel plate microchannels is analyzed by numerically. For this purpose, single-phase, developing, laminar fluid flow at steady state and in the slip flow regime is considered. The continuity, momentum, and energy equations for Newtonian fluids are solved numerically for constant wall temperature boundary condition. Slip velocity and temperature jump at wall boundaries are imposed to observe the rarefa...
Effect of boundary conditions on magnetohydrodynamics duct flow
Bozkaya, Canan (2017-12-01)
The magnetohydrodynamic flow of an incompressible, viscous and electrically conducting fluid is investigated numerically in a channel of either rectangular or semi-infinite cross-section with several types of boundary conditions involving walls of variable conductivity in the presence of hydrodynamic slip. The flow is fully developed and driven by a constant pressure gradient in the axial direction under a uniform external inclined magnetic field. The governing differential equations coupled in velocity and...
Effects of stopper rod movement on mold fluid flow at Arcelormittal Dofasco's No. 1 Continuous Caster
Lui, Rui; Sengupta, Joydeep; Crosbie, Donald; Yavuz, Mehmet Metin; Thomas, Brian (null; 2011-05-05)
Effects of stopper rod movement on transient flow phenomena in the mold and formation of sliver defects are investigated via plant measurements and numerical simulations. First, sliver locations are correlated with stopper rod position and level fluctuation histories in the mold by analyzing images of slivers and process data recorded at ArcelorMittal Dofasco's No.1 Continuous Caster. Then, 3D transient CFD models are developed, validated with plant measurements, and applied to simulate transient flow, part...
Effect of particle shape on fall velocity of angular particles
Göğüş, Mustafa; Kokpinar, MA (2001-10-01)
In this study, fall velocities of 174 regularly shaped angular particles-namely cylindrical, cubic, wedge-shaped prisms, and box-shaped prisms-made of five different materials were measured in calm water conditions in a cylindrical settling column. Reynolds numbers based on particle fall velocity and characteristic length were varied, in the range from 10(3) to 4.2 x 10(4). A new shape factor and characteristic length were defined from a transformed form of the original particle. Variation of experimentally...
