Numerical and experimental investigation of quench process

1996-11-07
Numerical and experimental studies have been carried out to investigate the evolution of residual stresses in quenched components induced by temperature gradient and phase transformations. In the numerical analysis, a finite element model is implemented for predicting the temperature field, phase changes with their associated internal stresses in axisymmetrical steel components. The model is verified by several comparisons with other known numerical results. Case studies are performed to investigate the effects of the quench bath temperature and the specimen geometry. Specimen geometry has been analyzed by introducing a hole in a cylinder and varying hole diameter and its eccentricity. Experiments include microstructural examination and X-ray diffraction measurements of surface residual stresses.

Numerical investigation of non-homogenous plastic deformation in quenching process
Gür, Cemil Hakan (2001-12-01)
The aim of the study is to investigate the evolution of internal stresses and non-homogeneous plastic deformation in quenching by numerical simulation. This paper presents the finite element model of quenching of axisymmetric components and the results of various numerical experiments. In the simulation, first the temperature distribution is determined as a function of geometry and time, Then. a model is described to give the volume fractions of phases as a function of time for the corresponding cooling cur...
Numerical simulation of non-reacting turbulent flows over a constant temperature solid surface in regression
Karaeren, Cenker; Albayrak, Kahraman; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2007)
In this study, an attempt is made to obtain convergent and stable solutions of the K-E turbulence model equations for non-reacting turbulent flows over an isothermal solid surface in regression. A physics based mathematical model is used to describe the flow and temperature field over the moving surface. The flow is assumed to be two-dimensional, unsteady, incompressible with boundary layer approximations. Parabolized form of the standard K-E equations is adopted to simulate turbulence in the flow. Regressi...
Numerical investigation of coupled heat and mass transfer inside the adsorbent bed of an adsorption cooling unit
Solmus, Ismail; Rees, D. Andrew S.; Yamali, Cemil; Baker, Derek Keıth; KAFTANOĞLU, BİLGİN (2012-05-01)
In this study, the influence of several design parameters on the transient distributions of temperature, pressure and amount adsorbed in the radial direction of a cylindrical adsorbent bed of an adsorption cooling unit using silica gel/water have been investigated numerically. For this purpose, a transient one-dimensional local thermal non-equilibrium model that accounts for both internal and external mass transfer resistances has been developed using the local volume averaging method. For the conditions in...
NUMERICAL STABILITY OF RBF APPROXIMATION FOR UNSTEADY MHD FLOW EQUATIONS
Gurbuz, Merve; Tezer, Münevver (2019-01-01)
In this study, the radial basis function (RBF) approximation is applied for solving the unsteady fluid flow and magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) convection flow problems with the use of explicit Euler time discretization and relaxation parameters to accelerate the convergence. The stability analysis is also carried out in terms of the spectral radius of related RBF discretized coefficient matrices. The optimal choices of the time increment, relaxation parameters and physical problem parameters are found for achiev...
