Investigation of Reinforced Distribution in Fabrication Process of Metal Matrix Composites by Combined Stirring Process
Composites Research, volume 14, issue 5, 2001, Pages 1~11
The particulates reinforced metal matrix composites(PMMC) have a number of interesting mechanical properties. including high strength and good resistance to wear at high temperature and low thermal expansion. The equipment structure to obtain the homogeneous distribution in composites are proposed for the continuous pouring of reinforcement at the desired temperature. The particulates reinforced metal matrix composites(A357/SiCp) were fabricated by the process of the combined stirring method with the various fabrication process. The combined stirring method to niform distribution of particle is consisted of two stirring force both electro-magnetic stirring generated from induction heating and mechanical stirring with graphite stirrer. PMMC billets were fabricated with the volume fractions ranged from 0% to 20% and particle sizes ranged from 14
. It is important to cont the size of primary
-Al solid particles because it could become the cause of the particle pushing or capture phenomena from the fact that secondary dendrite arm spacing size depends on the cooling rate during the solidification in hypoeutectic Al-Si alloy. Therefore, the effect of primary
-Al on the reinforcement distribution in matrix alloys has been investigated. The microstructure of PMMC fabracated with various volume fractions(0%, 10%, and 20%) and particle size were observed.
Simultaneous Sensing of Failure and Strain in Composites Using Optical Fiber Sensors
Composites Research, volume 14, issue 5, 2001, Pages 12~19
In aircraft composite structures, structural defects such as matrix cracks, delaminations and fiber breakages are hard to detect if they are breaking out in operating condition. Therefore, to assure the structural integrity, it is desirable to perform the real-time health monitoring of the structures. In this study, a fiber optic sensor was applied to the composite beams to monitor failure and strain in real-time. To detect the failure signal and strain simultaneously, laser diode and ASE broadband source were applied in a single EFPI sensor using wavelength division multiplexer. Short time courier transform and wavelet transform were used to characterize the failure signal and to determine the moment of failure. And the strain measured by AEFPI was compared with the that of strain gage. From the result of the tensile test, strain measured by the AEFPI agreed with the value of electric strain gage and the failure detection system could detect the moment of failure with high sensitivity to recognize the onset of micro-crack failure signal.
Free Vibration and Forced Sinusoidal Vibration Analysis for Satellite Antenna Structures
Composites Research, volume 14, issue 5, 2001, Pages 20~25
This paper deals with finite element analysis for free vibration and forced sinusoidal vibration of Ka- and Ku- band antenna structures using MSC/NASTRAN. The structures are designed to satisfy minimum resonance frequency requirement in order to decouple the dynamic interaction of the satellite antenna with the spacecraft bus structure. The large mass method was utilized to analyze output acceleration according to the forced sinusoidal vibration inputs in X-, Y- and Z- directions. The analysis results can also be used thor verification experimental planning of satellite antenna.
A Study on the Prediction of the Loaded Location of the Composite Laminated Shell by Using Neural Networks
Composites Research, volume 14, issue 5, 2001, Pages 26~37
After impact analysis of the composite cylindrical shells was performed. obtained outputs at 9 equally divided points of the shell were used as input patterns of the neural networks. Identification of impact loading characteristics was predicted simultaneously. Momentum backpropagation algorithm of neural networks which can modify the momentum coefficient and learning rate was developed and applied to identify the loading characteristics. Hidden layers of the backpropagation increased from 1 layer to 3 layers and trained the loading characteristics. Developed program with variable learning rate was converged close to real load characteristics under 1% error. Inverse engineering which identify the impact loading characteristics can be applicable to the composite laminated cylindrical shells with developed neural networks.
Kaiser Effects in Thermo-Acoustic Emission Behavior of Composites
Composites Research, volume 14, issue 5, 2001, Pages 38~45
Kaiser effects of thermo-acoustic emission (AE) from composite laminates under the repetitive thermal cyclic loads have been quantitatively analyzed in consideration of AE source mechanisms. The repetitive thermal load brought about a large reduction. i.e. an exponential decrease in AE total ringdown counts and AE amplitudes. It was thought that generation of thermo-AE during the first thermal cycle was not caused by crack propagation but by secondary microfracturing due to abrasive contact between crack surfaces. For the repetitive thermal cycles, a few number of weak thermo-AE events were generated due to some frictional sliding contact. Such behavior of thermo-AE showed different characteristics according to specimen kinds and the maximum temperature in the thermal load cycles.
Damage Analysis of Singly Oriented Ply Fiber Metal Laminate under Concentrated Loading Conditions by Using Acoustic Emission
Composites Research, volume 14, issue 5, 2001, Pages 46~53
In this research, damage behavior of singly oriented ply (SOP) fiber metal laminate (FML) subjected to concentrated load was studied. The static indentation tests were conducted to study fiber orientation effect on damage behavior of FML. During the static indentation tests, acoustic emission technique (AE) was adopted to study damage characteristics of FML. AE signals were obtained by using AE sensor with 150kHz resonance frequency and the signals were compared with indentation curves of FML. The damage process of SOP FML was divided by three parts, i.e., crack initiation, crack propagation, and penetration. The AE characteristics during crack initiation show that the micro crack is initiated at lower ply of the plate, then propagate along the thickness of the plate with creating tiber debonding. The crack grow along the fiber direction with occurring 60∼80dB AE signal. During the penetration, the fiber breakage was observed. As fiber orientation increases, talc fiber breakage occurs more frequently. The AE signal behaviors support these results. Cumulative AE counts could well predict crack initiation and crack propagation and AE amplitude were useful for the prediction of damage failure mode.
