Numerical analysis of thermo-mechanical behavior in flow forming

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 thermal variations in the deformation zone during the process. The methodology detailed in this study facilitates a deeper understanding of the evolution of heat during the flow forming process and lays the groundwork for further exploration into the possible role of a material's thermal properties in the definition of flow formability.

Analytical solution for single phase microtube heat transfer including axial conduction and viscous dissipation
Barışık, Murat; Güvenç Yazıcıoğlu, Almıla; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2008)
Heat transfer of two-dimensional, hydrodynamically developed, thermally developing, single phase, laminar flow inside a microtube is studied analytically with constant wall temperature thermal boundary condition. The flow is assumed to be incompressible and thermo-physical properties of the fluid are assumed to be constant. Viscous dissipation and the axial conduction are included in the analysis. Rarefaction effect is imposed to the problem via velocity slip and temperature jump boundary conditions for the...
Numerical Solution of MHD Incompressible Convection Flow in Channels
Gurbuz, Merve; Tezer, Münevver (2019-1-01)
The purpose of this paper is to study numerically the influence of the magnetic field, buoyancy force and viscous dissipation on the convective flow and temperature of the fluid in a square cavity, lid-driven cavity, and lid-driven cavity with an obstacle at the center. The continuity, momentum and energy equations are coupled including buoyancy and magnetic forces, and energy equation contains Joule heating and viscous dissipation. The equations are solved in terms of stream function, vorticity and tempera...
Numerical analysis of ablation process on a two dimensional external surface
Aykan, Fatma Serap; Dursunkaya, Zafer; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2005)
The thermal response analysis of an ablative material on a two dimensional external surface is performed. The method is applied to both rectangular and cylindrical coordinate systems, where rectangular coordinate system is used for comparison with results available in literature. The current study solves the decomposition of the material at high temperatures by using the nth order Arrhenius equation but excludes the removal of char from the surface due to mechanical erosion or phase change and considers tha...
Numerical Simulation of Rarefied Laminar Flow past a Circular Cylinder
Çelenligil, Mehmet Cevdet (2014-07-18)
Numerical simulations have been obtained for two-dimensional laminar flows past a circular cylinder in the transitional regime. Computations are performed using the direct simulation Monte Carlo method for Knudsen numbers of 0.02 and 0.2 and Mach numbers of 0.102 and 0.4. For these conditions, Reynolds number ranges from 0.626 to 24.63 and the flows are steady. Results show that separation occurs in the wake region for the flow with Mach number of 0.4 and Knudsen number of 0.02, but for the other eases flow...
Experimental Thermal Performance Characterization of Flat Grooved Heat Pipes
Alijani, Hossein; ÇETİN, BARBAROS; Akkus, Yigit; Dursunkaya, Zafer (Informa UK Limited, 2019-06-15)
The thermal characterization of aluminum flat grooved heat pipes is performed experimentally for different groove dimensions. Three heat pipes with groove widths of 0.2 mm, 0.4 mm, and 1.5 mm are used in the experiments. The effect of the amount of the working fluid is extensively studied for each groove width. The results reveal that, although all three succeed in dissipating the heat input through the phase change of the working fluid by continuous evaporation and condensation, the effectiveness of the he...
