A computational model for partially plastic stress analysis of orthotropic variable thickness disks subjected to external pressure

A computational model is developed to predict the states of stressand deformation in partially plastic, orthotropic, variable thickness, nonisothermal, stationary annular disks under external pressure. Assuming a state ofplane stress and using basic equations of mechanics of a disk, Maxwell relation,Hill’s quadratic yield condition, and a Swift type nonlinear hardening law, asingle governing differential equation describing the elastic and partially plasticresponse of an orthotropic, variable thickness, nonisothermal disk is obtained.The solution of this nonlinear second order differential equation subject to freeand pressurized boundary conditions is achieved by a shooting method. In thisarticle, we move towards the governing equation by going through basic equations that lead to it and present its solution procedure and some interestingresults.

A Class of Nonisothermal Variable Thickness Rotating Disk Problems Solved by Hypergeometric Functions
Eraslan, Ahmet Nedim (2005-06-01)
Exact solutions for nonisothermal variable thickness rotating disks represented by different thickness profiles are obtained under plane stress assumption. The solutions are based on Tresca's yield criterion, its associated flow rule and linear strain hardening material behavior. Five different plastic regimes governed by different mathematical forms of the yield criterion are considered for each thickness profile. A displacement formulation is used and the resulting differential equations for the elastic a...
Analytical solutions to orthotropic variable thickness disk problems
Eraslan, Ahmet Nedim; Varlı, Ekin (2016-01-01)
An analytical model is developed to estimate the mechanical response of nonisothermal, orthotropic, variable thickness disks under a variety of boundary conditions. Combining basic mechanical equations of disk geometry with the equations of orthotropic material, the elastic equation of the disk is obtained. This equation is transformed into a standard hypergeometric differential equation by means of a suitable transformation. An analytical solution is then obtained in terms of hypergeometric functions. The ...
Von mises yield criterion and nonlinearly hardening variable thickness rotating annular disks with rigid inclusion
Eraslan, Ahmet Nedim (2002-09-01)
A computational model is developed to investigate inelastic deformations of variable thickness rotating annular disks mounted on rigid shafts. The von Mises yield condition and its flow rule are combined with Swift's hardening law to simulate nonlinear hardening material behavior. An efficient numerical solution procedure is designed and used throughout to handle the nonlinearities associated with the von Mises yield condition and the boundary condition at the shaft-annular disk interface. The results of th...
A methodology for lining design of circular mine shafts in different rock masses
Öztürk, Hasan (2016-09-01)
In this study, the finite element numerical modelling of 2D shaft sections in a Hoek-Brown medium are carried out in a non-hydrostatic stress state in an attempt to predict pressures developing around mine shafts. An iterative process of applying support pressure until observing no failure zone around the shaft is used to simulate the required lining support pressure for different shaft models. Later, regression analysis is carried out to find a generic shaft pressure equation representing the rock mass and...
Analytical and Numerical Solutions to Rotating Variable Thickness Disks for a New Thickness Profile
Eraslan, Ahmet Nedim (2014-09-28)
Analytical and numerical solutions to rotating variable thickness disks are obtained. A new one-parameter exponential model is used to express the variation of disk thickness. It is shown by taking the limit that the present analytical solution reduces to the well-known homogeneous thickness solution. Furthermore, analytical and numerical solutions are brought into view together to allow comparison and further verification. The results of the solutions are presented in tables and figures to provide benchmar...
