Application of the Contour Method to Determine Axial Residual Stresses in Cold Extruded Steel Rods

Aydin, O.

Residual stresses in cold extruded parts play an important role in both component lifetime and succeeding in manufacturing performance. When a cold extruded part is used directly, the lifetime of the part depends on the residual stresses induced during cold extrusion. On the other hand, if the part is exposed to post operations such as machining, residual stresses may cause distortions. Despite their importance, there are only a few residual stress measurement methods to assess axial residual stresses in full cylindrical thick components of massive forming. As high-energy X-ray and neutron diffraction methods are less available and considerably expensive, the contour method may be an alternative providing the accurate assessment of residual stresses without requiring specialized facilities. In the present work, residual stresses in cold extruded rods are determined via the contour method for various extrusion ratios. The finite element analyses for the same conditions are also carried out to provide the comparison to the contour method. The results indicate that the contour method can be a valuable candidate for the measurement of axial residual stresses in cold extruded thick components

Review of Residual Stress Measurement by Magnetic Barkhausen Noise Technique
Gür, Cemil Hakan (2018-01-01)
Determination of residual stress state is important for quality, integrity, and service performance of the components and structures. Almost all manufacturing processes cause considerable amounts of residual stress; thus, any process or product design ignoring it involves a risk for distortion or early failure. Among the existing methods, the magnetic Barkhausen noise method has been gaining attention for measuring residual stresses nondestructively in ferromagnetic materials. It is sensitive to the interac...

Hızlı, Hüseyin; Kaleli, Tuğçe; Gür, Cemil Hakan (null; 2016-10-01)
Residual stress state on the surface layers has a critical effect on the service performance and fatigue life of the carburized components. Non-destructive determination of residual stress state in a rapid and reliable way has being gained importance for industrial applications. The aim of this study is to investigate the efficiency of the magnetic Barkhausen noise (MBN) method for monitoring the residual stress variations as a function of carburizing process parameters. For this purpose, MBN and XRD measur...

Hizli, Huseyin; Gür, Cemil Hakan (MATERIALS RESEARCH FORUM LLC, 105 SPRINGDALE LN, MILLERSVILLE, PA 17551 USA; 2018-09-14)
Service life and performance of the case-hardened machine parts are greatly dependent on the residual stress state in the surface layers which directly affects the fatigue behavior. Recently, all industrial sectors have been requested for a fast and non-destructive determination of residual stress. This study aims to monitor of the variations in surface residual stress distributions in the carburized 19CrNi5H steels by means of non-destructive and semi-destructive measurement techniques, Magnetic Barkhausen...
Design of a high precision hybrid AM machine
Yılmaz, Yunus Emre; Dölen, Melik; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2019)
Precision requirements in fused deposition modelling (FDM) processes have been increasing in recent years, especially after recognizing the potential of FDM process to produce complex and functional components. In order to increase precision of FDM process, 6-axis hybrid manufacturing system, which can carry out additive- and subtractive manufacturing processes in one manufacturing system platform, is designed. During design, kinematic analysis of the machine is done, axial- and angular errors are estimated...

Residual stresses have significant inflences on the service performance of the welded components. Various studies have been continuing to develop nondestructive methods for determination of residual stresses with portable equipment and short measurement time, as an alternative to the existing techniques such as X-ray diffraction. This study aims to investigate the applicability of Magnetic Barkhausen Noise method on predicting surface residual stresses in the welded steel plates.
