Assessment and improvement of elementary force computations for cold forward rod extrusion

Two commonly used analytical force computation methods for cold forward rod extrusion are evaluated by means of precise finite element computations. The upperbound model by Avitzur based on the spherical velocity field and the model by Siebel based on a quasi-upper-bound solution are considered. It has been found that the pure deformation forces obtained by summing the ideal force and shear force terms deviate between +25% and -20% from the finite element solutions. Larger deviations, however, occur for the Coulomb-friction term in the container. A new model based on an elasto-static analysis combined with numerical analysis is suggested to compute this term. This new model supplies also the accurate pressure distribution within the container.


Analysis of thin walled open section tapered beams using hybrid stress finite element method
Akman, Mehmet Nazım; Oral, Süha; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2008)
In this thesis, hybrid stress finite element is formulated for the analysis of the isotropic, thin walled, open section beams with variable cross sections. The beam element has two nodes each having seven degrees of freedom. Assumption of stress field is sufficient to determine the element stiffness matrix. Axial, flexural and torsional effects are taken into account in the analysis. The methodology can be applied both to the tapered and the uniform beams. Throughout this study, firstly element cross-sectio...
On-Line Application of SHEM by Particle Swarm Optimization to Grid-Connected, Three-Phase, Two-Level VSCs with Variable DC Link Voltage
Guvengir, Umut; ÇADIRCI, IŞIK; Ermiş, Muammer (2018-08-01)
This paper is devoted to an otablen-line application of the selective harmonic elimination method (SHEM) to three-phase, two-level, grid-connected voltage source converters (VSCs) by particle swarm optimization (PSO). In such systems, active power can be controlled by the phase shift angle, and reactive power by the modulation index, against variations in the direct current (DC) link voltage. Some selected, low-odd-order harmonic components in the line-to-neutral output voltage waveforms are eliminated by c...

An algorithm is developed for electrical impedance tomography (EIT) of finite cylinders with general cross-sectional boundaries and translationally uniform conductivity distributions. The electrodes for data collection are assumed to be placed around a crosssectional plane; therefore the axial variation of the boundary conditions and also the potential field are expanded in Fourier series. For each Fourier component a two-dimensional (2-D) partial differential equation is derived. Thus the 3-D forward probl...
Quantitative electrostatic force measurement in AFM
JEFFERY, Steve; Oral, Ahmet; Pethica, John B. (2000-04-02)
We describe a method for measuring forces in the atomic force microscope (AFM), in which a small amplitude oscillation(similar to 1 Angstrom(p-p)) is applied to a stiff(similar to 40 N/m) cantilever below its first resonant frequency, and the force gradient is measured directly as a function of separation. We have used this instrument to measure electrostatic forces by applying an ac voltage between the tip and the sample, and observed a variation in contact potential difference with separation. We also sho...
Numerical analysis of thermo-mechanical behavior in flow forming
Günay, Enes; Fenercioglu, Tevfik Ozan; Yalçınkaya, Tuncay (2021-01-01)
Flow forming is a metal forming process for cylindrical workpieces where high velocity deformation leads to radial thinning and axial extension. In the current study, a thermomechanical, dynamic and explicit finite element model of a flow forming process is developed on ABAQUS software. The model is validated through the comparison of reaction forces and geometry obtained from the experiments. Coolant convection effect is analyzed in conjunction with roller and mandrel conduction cooling to study the therma...
