Flow forming is an incremental metal-forming technique used for manufacturing thin-walled seamless tubes where a hollow metal material flows axially along the mandrel by a rotating mandrel and multiple cylinders. Flow formed materials are frequently used in the aviation and defence industry and it is crucial to examine the influence of the process on the material in terms of ductile fracture. However, the process requires in-depth failure analysis considering different process parameters and materials. The current study is concerned with investigating the ductile fracture behavior during flow forming process which includes complex stress states in terms of stress triaxiality and Lode parameter. Ductile fracture is simulated through the modified Mohr-Coulomb model. A user material subroutine (VUMAT) has been developed to implement the plasticity behavior and the damage accumulation rule. The model is validated through finite element (FE) simulations performed in Abaqus/Explicit and using the experimental data in Granum et al. (2021). The validated framework is applied to a finite element model of flow forming process with single and three rollers. The incremental forming with three rollers significantly reduces the damage accumulation. The initial results show a highly damaged region outer and inner surfaces of the workpiece after 40% thickness reduction ratio, and the forming limit is predicted as about 40-45%. The modeling framework is planned to be applied using various process parameter for different materials.

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...
Mechanical properties and surface energies of low density polyethylene poly(vinyl chloride) blends
Akovali, G; Torun, TT; Bayramlı, Erdal; Erinc, HK (1998-03-01)
A series of blends of poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) and low density polyethylene (LDPE) are prepared and examined. Plasma treatment is applied to one of the components (LDPE) in order to affect the degree of compatibility. For this purpose, different monomers, such as carbon tetrachloride and vinyl chloride, are used. Tensile test results for all the blend samples, with and without plasma-treated LDPE, are compared. The surface energy results of blends prepared from untreated and treated LDPE-PVC showed consid...
Flow correction control with electromagnetically induced preform resting process
Poorzeinolabedin, Mohsen; Parnas, Kemal Levend (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-06-01)
Resin flow correction control with electromagnetic field source, a new variation of the vacuum-assisted resin transfer molding (VARTM) process called electromagnetically induced preform resting (EIPR) for dynamical resin flow controlling is introduced to manipulate the flow front and local permeability to prevent the formation of dry spots. This paper proposes an active and real-time flow control approach that is implemented during the composite laminate infusion. The EIPR process applies an electromagnetic...
Modeling of particle-resin suspension impregnation in compression resin transfer molding of particle-filled, continuous fiber reinforced composites
Sas, Hatice Sinem; Erdal Erdoğmuş, Merve (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2014-03-01)
A particle-resin suspension impregnation model is used for analyzing the mold filling process in compression resin transfer molding (CRTM) of particle-filled, continuous fiber composites. The model is based on Darcy flow coupled with particle filtration and is applicable to two-dimensional impregnation through isotropic/anisotropic fiber preforms. Comparisons with simple analytical solutions and experimental results from the literature were made to validate the numerical solution. Simulations showed that CR...

The tensile and flexural properties, together with the unnotched and notched impact strengths of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), glass bead (GB) and glass fiber (GF) ternary composites have been studied. The tensile strengths of the hybrid composites were predicted, from a theory formulated in this study, by using the strengths of the ABS/GB and ABS/GF composites alone. The addition of even a small quantity of glass fiber to ABS or ABS/GB composites changes the mode of deformation from one which sh...
