The Die Design for Semi-Solid Forging Process of Computer Simulation and Experimental Investigation of Filling Phenomenon
Transactions of Materials Processing, volume 10, issue 5, 2001, Pages 373~382
Die design by computer simulation has some advantages compared with the conventional method which has performed by designer's experiences and trials and errors. The die filling and solidification process of thixoforming process were simulated by MAGMAsoft/thixo module. Furthermore, the die design for thixoforming was performed with the various geometry shape. The effect of designed gate dimension on filling phenomenon was estimated by filling simulation. The calculated results was compared with experimental data. The free surface phenomenon obtained by experiment have good agreement with computer simulation results. The solidification effect much as prosity and shrinkage for designed semi-solid forging die had been predicted by computer simulation. The designed die for semi-solid forging had been applied to produce of the frame part which is used to airconditious system.
A Boundary Diffusion Creep Model for the Plastic Deformation of Grain Boundary Phase of Nanocrystalline Materials
Transactions of Materials Processing, volume 10, issue 5, 2001, Pages 383~388
In describing the plastic deformation behaviour of ultrafine-grained materials, a phase mixture model in which a polycrystalline material is regarded as a mixture of a crystalline phase and a grain boundary phase has been successful. The deformation mechanism for the grain boundary phase, which is necessary for applying the phase mixture model to polycrystalline materials, is modelled as a diffusional flow of matter along the grain boundary. A constitutive equation for the boundary diffusion creep of the boundary phase was proposed, in which the strain rate is proportional to (stress/grain siz
). The upper limit of the stress of the boundary phase was set to equal to the strength to the amorphous phase. The proposed model can explain the strain rate and grain size dependence of the strength of the grain boundary phase. Successful applications of the model compared with published experimental data are described.
Analysis of Rectangular Cup Drawing Processes with Large Aspect Ratio Using Multi-Stage Finite Element Inverse Analysis
Transactions of Materials Processing, volume 10, issue 5, 2001, Pages 389~395
An inverse finite element approach is employed for more capability to design the optimum blank shape from the desired final shape with small amount of computation time and effort. For multi-stage deep-drawing processes with large aspect ratio, numerical analysis is extremely difficult to carry out due to its complexities and convergence problem. as well as tremendous computation time. In this paper, multi-stage finite element inverse analysis is applied to multi-stage rectangular cup drawing processes to calculate intermediate blank shapes and strain distributions in each stages. Deformation history of the previous stage is considered in the computation. Finite element patches are used to describe arbitrary intermediate sliding constraint surfaces. #KW=Rectangular Cup Drawing ; Multi-Stage Finite Element Inverse Method ; Deformation History
A Numerical Investigation on the Rule of Mixtures for the Mechanical Properties of Composites with Homogeneously Distributed Particles
Transactions of Materials Processing, volume 10, issue 5, 2001, Pages 396~401
The concept of the mixtures can be used not only in the composites but also in the materials with precipitates and matrix. In this investigation, the finite element method of axisymmetric unit cell models and the rule of mixtures of the Voigt and the Reuss models are used to analyze the overall mechanical response of composites with homogeneously distributed particles. The calculations have been cameo out by taking the materials as i) hardening and ii) perfect plastic materials. The Plastic properties are predicted for various volume fractions of the soft and hard particles. The computational results are compared with the results of the rule of mixtures. It is found that the plastic flow curves agree well with the Voigt model when the volume fraction of the particles is high. On the other hand, the calculated flow curves exist between the Voigt model and the Reuss model when the volume fraction of the particles is low.
A Study on the Unified Molding for a Box Shaped Thick Part Using Gas-Assisted Injection Molding
Transactions of Materials Processing, volume 10, issue 5, 2001, Pages 402~410
The gas-assisted injection molding process is often perceived to be unpredictable, because of the extreme sensitivity of the gas. Since a slight change in design or process parameters can significantly change the resulting gas penetration, few designers and molders have the level of experience with the new gas-assisted injection molding process required for the development of new parts. This paper is concerned with the unified molding for a thick cosmetic chest by using gas-assisted injection molding. CAE analysis was carried out to design the part and the gas channel without inducing sink marks. And based on the part weight measurement, the processing parameters to control gas penetration percentage were chosen through the method of design of experiments. A thick cosmetic chest was successfully produced using the gas assist technology. The sink mark issue associated with the conventional injection molded parts was resolved. Weight savings and cycle-time reduction were also achieved.
An Elasto-Plastic Finite Element Analysis on Deep Drawing of Clad Sheet Metal
Transactions of Materials Processing, volume 10, issue 5, 2001, Pages 411~417
A Comparative study on deep drawing of clad sheet is carried out to investigate the forming characteristics and the effectiveness of modified finite element analysis. An elasto-plastic finite element analysis Is developed to analyze the forming of clad sheet using explicit scheme and layered shell. Axisymmetric deep drawing of stainless clad metal sheet is performed and thickness distribution is obtained. The corresponding finite element analysis shows good agreement with the results. Some disagreement can be explained by the assumption of shell element and the complexity of deformation of clad sheet.
Evaluation of Heat Treatment of an Al-Si Alloy forging by Using Its Relationship between Electrical Conductivity and Hardness
Transactions of Materials Processing, volume 10, issue 5, 2001, Pages 418~424
In this study, a relationship between hardness and electrical conductivity for an Al-Si aluminum alloy, forged after extruded, is investigated. Microvickers hardness is measured and compared with its corresponding electrical conductivity obtained by the eddy current test. It is found that a distinct relationship between the hardness and the electrical conductivity exists for the material. Using the relationship, the hardness of forging is predicted from the electrical conductivity obtained by eddy current test and the result is used to evaluate the condition of heat treatment.
A Study on the Characteristics of the Precision Blanking of Lead Frame (1): Influences of Blanking Process Variables
Transactions of Materials Processing, volume 10, issue 5, 2001, Pages 425~432
In order to investigate the influences of process parameters on the shape of lead frame, experimental study has been carried out. In the experiment, dimensional accuracy of the die sets, measurement accuracy has been managed carefully enough to simulate actual lead frame blanking process. With the blanking of square-shaped specimen, the effects of clearance, strip holding pressure and bridge width on the shape of blanked profile have been investigated. Experimental results show that the burnish ratio is increased as the clearance decreases. the strip holding pressure increases, and bridge width increases. Although the results seems to be similar to the ordinary blanking, the lead frame blanking shows a subtle different characteristics to the ordinary blanking due to the narrow bridge width.
