Simsir, Caner
Gür, Cemil Hakan
A finite element model capable of predicting the temperature history, evolution of microstructure and residual stresses in the quenching process is presented. Proposed model was integrated into Msc. Marc software via user subroutines. Verification of the model was performed by X-ray diffraction residual stress measurements on a series of steel cylinders quenched.

A FEM based framework for simulation of thermal treatments: Application to steel quenching
Şimşir, Caner; Gür, Cemil Hakan (2008-12-01)
During thermal treatments, materials are usually subjected to continuous heating and cooling cycles during which microstructural evolution and mechanical interactions occur simultaneously at different length and time scales. Modeling of these processes necessitates dealing with inherent complexities such as phase transformations, large material property variations, complex couplings and boundary conditions. In this study, a mathematical framework based on finite element method (FEM) capable of predicting te...
A mathematical framework for simulation of thermal processing of materials: Application to steel quenching
Şimşir, Caner; Gür, Cemil Hakan (2008-08-12)
During thermal processing, parts are usually subjected to continuous heating and cooling cycles during which microstructural and mechanical evolutions occur simultaneously at different length and time scales. Modeling of these processes necessitates dealing with inherent complexities such as large material property variations, complex couplings and domains, combined heat and mass transfer mechanisms, phase transformations, and complex boundary conditions. In this study, a finite element method based mathema...
A numerical study on magneto-hydrodynamic mixed convection flow
Bozkaya, Canan (2014-01-01)
This paper, describes a study conducted to numerically investigate the two-dimensional, steady, laminar, magneto-hydrodynamic mixed convection flow and heat transfer characteristics in a lid-driven enclosure beneath an externally applied magnetic field. A solid square block is placed inside the cavity. The governing equations in the form of a stream function-vorticity-temperature formulation are solved numerically using the dual reciprocity boundary element method with constant elements. Treatment of nonlin...
Finite element simulation of quench hardening
Gür, Cemil Hakan (1996-07-01)
In this study, an efficient finite element model for predicting the temperature field, volume fraction of phases and the evolution of internal stresses up to the residual stress states during quenching of axisymmetrical steel components is developed and implemented. The temperature distribution is determined by considering heat losses to the quenching medium as well as latent heat due to phase transformations. Phase transformations are modelled by discretizing the cooling cuves in a succession of isothermal...
A normalized set of force and permeance data for doubly-salient magnetic geometries
Mahariq, İbrahim; Ertan, Hulusi Bülent; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2009)
In this study, a model is developed to represent doubly-salient magnetic circuits and to fit finite element analysis for the aim of obtaining a set of normalized normal force, tangential force, and permeance variation data. To obtain the desired data FE field solution method is used. The reliability of finite element results have been verified by three steps; first, comparing the numerical results with analytically calculated permeance, second, by solving two switch reluctance motors and comparing the resul...
