A Framework for the Automatic Identification of Optimized Yield Surface Parameters

Hanekom, Kevin 01 January 2023 (has links) (PDF)
Advanced engineering materials are designed to display tensile-compressive asymmetry (TCA) and anisotropy to provide unique attributes to critical components necessary in the hot section of turbines. The never-ending chase for higher efficiencies, and with them, higher temperature gradients, intrinsically leads to more and more of these complex materials, like single crystal turbine blades, embedded within the turbine environment. Mathematical models, known as yield criteria, allow engineers to visualize the mechanical behavior of these materials in various orientations under complex loading. Yield criteria are dependent on three key items in determination of their governing parameters: material test data, mathematical constraints, and knowledge about the examined materials microstructure in order to predict the materials attributes (Anisotropy, Tensile-Compressive Asymmetry). The optimization of the modeling parameters governing constitutive modeling of TCA and anisotropic material has been a semi- active area of research in the last decade. As such, there is a deficit of repeatable, robust, and more efficient techniques present within the literature surrounding determination of the yield criteria parameters surrounding nickel-base superalloys. Research is proposed to derive a novel way to identify yield surface parameters. Meshing proven algorithms with a vast material database, identifying the overall best modeling parameters, and reducing the required physical testing will be of fundamental concern. The inherent reduction of lab time, and accompanied cost of experimentation, will allow the user to make use of the test data more efficiently. Implementing the constant determination approach will be facilitated by developed MATLAB code, providing an easy and centralized environment for identifying and parameterizing a repeatable yield surface representing the user uploaded anisotropic and TCA material.

Modelling and Evaluation of the Methods for Compression Testing of Thermoplastics / Modellering och utvärdering av metoder för kompressionsprovning av termoplaster

Itani, Abdul Rahman January 2021 (has links)
The application of thermoplastics as load-carrying components in furniture applications is an attractive prospect at IKEA. Thermoplastics can be used instead of metal where advanced geometries and aesthetics are considered. In this thesis work in solid mechanics, it is of interest to investigate different test setups proposed in the literature for compression testing of thermoplastics while taking into account the complex stress fields induced in the test samples during the compression test.  The simulations have showed that the main cause of complex stress fields in compression test specimens is the presence of friction between the specimen and the machine heads. Friction prevents perfect Poisson contractions during the test which shifts the orientation of the local stress tensors from the direction of loading. Out of the shapes investigated in this thesis, it has been concluded that cube-shaped specimens were the most suitable to utilize in compression tests. The results were based on exploiting measures that pertain to accuracy and robustness parameters within stress and strain. Furthermore, manufacturing impact and ease of test measurements were considered. / Användningen av termoplaster som lastbärande komponenter i möbelapplikationer har ökat under de senaste åren inom IKEA. Då det förutom att vara estetiskt tilltalande för hela möbler är främsta användningen i komponenter som har mer komplicerade geometrier. I detta examensarbete i hållfasthetslära är det av intresse att undersöka olika provkroppar vilket föreslås i litteratur för kompressionsprovning av termoplaster med hänsyn till de komplexa spänningstillstånden som orsakas under provning.  Simuleringarna har påvisat de komplexa spänningstillstånd i kompressionsprov som uppkommer på grund av friktion mellan provstaven och grepen. Friktion förhindrar perfekt tvärkontraktion, vilket förändrar orienteringen av de lokala spänningstensorerna från belastningsriktningen, vilket är enaxlig. Utifrån de former som undersöktes i detta examensarbete blev slutsatsen att kubformade provkroppar var de mest lämpliga att använda i kompressionsprovning. Resultaten baserades på att utnyttja åtgärder som avser noggrannhetsparametrar inom spänning och töjning men även tillverknings och provmätningens lätthet.

Grundlagen der Elasto-Plastizität in Creo Simulate - Theorie und Anwendung / Basics of Elasto-Plasticity in Creo Simulate - Theory and Application

Jakel, Roland 10 May 2012 (has links) (PDF)
Der Vortrag beschreibt die Grundlagen der Elasto-Plastizität sowie die softwaretechnische Anwendung mit dem FEM-Programm Creo Simulate bzw. Pro/MECHANICA von PTC. Der erste Teil des Vortrages beschreibt die Charakteristika plastischen Verhaltens, unterschiedliche plastische Materialgesetze, Fließkriterien bei mehrachsiger Beanspruchung und unterschiedliche Verfestigungsmodelle. Im zweiten Vortragsteil werden Möglichkeiten und Grenzen der Berechnung elasto-plastischer Probleme mit der Software dargestellt sowie Anwendungstipps gegeben. Im dritten Vortragsteil schließlich werden verschiedene Beispiele vorgestellt, davon besonders ausführlich das Verhalten einer einachsigen elasto-plastischen Zugprobe vor und nach dem Eintreten der Einschnürdehnung. / This presentation describes the basics of elasto-plasticity and its application with the finite element software Creo Simulate (formerly Pro/MECHANICA) from PTC. The first part describes the characteristics of plastic behavior, different plastic material laws, yield criteria for multiaxial stress states and different hardening models. In the second part, the opportunities and limitations of analyzing elasto-plastic problems with the FEM-code are described and user information is provided. The last part finally presents different examples. Deeply treated is the behavior of a uniaxial tensile test specimen before and after elongation with necking appears.
