Analysis of Forming Processes of PET Bottle using a finite Element Method
Transactions of Materials Processing, volume 10, issue 7, 2001, Pages 525~533
PET bottles are main]y manufactured by the stretch blow-molding process. In order to improve the thickness distribution to avoid crack generation at bottom region of one-piece PET bottle, process analysis of stretch blow-molding using a finite element method has been carried out. Finite element analysis has been carried out using ABAQUS/Standard. CREEP user subroutine provided in ABAQUS has been used to model PET behavior that is rate sensitive. Among the process parameters, the effect of plunger movement to thickness distribution of bottle has been considered by axisymmetric analysis. A modified process of plunger movement, which yields more uniform thickness distribution, has been proposed. 3D FE analysis has been done to confirm the validity of the proposed process.
Analysis of Hydroforming Process for an Automobile Lower Arm by FEM
Transactions of Materials Processing, volume 10, issue 7, 2001, Pages 534~542
Tubular hydroforming has attracted increased attention in the automotive industry recently. In this study, a professional finite element program for analysis and design of tube hydroforming processes, has been developed, called HydroFORM-3D, which is based on a rigid-plastic model. With the developed program HydroFORM-3D, the hydroforming process for an automobile lower arm is analyzed and designed. The manufacturing process for a lower arm consists of tube bending, preforming, and final hydroforming. To accomplish successful hydroforming process design, thorough investigation on proper combination of process parameters such as internal hydraulic pressure, axial feeding, and tool geometry is required. This paper describes the influences of forming conditions on the hydroforming of a lower arm by using simulation to predict strain and tube shape during bending, preforming, and final hydroforming processes.
Friction Model of Sheet Metal Forming Considering Lubricant and Surface Roughness
Transactions of Materials Processing, volume 10, issue 7, 2001, Pages 543~550
In order to find the effect of material property and lubricant viscosity on the frictional characteristics a sheet metal friction tester was designed and tensile test, surface roughness test, and friction test were performed with several kinds of drawing oils. Test results show that as the lubricant viscosity becomes lower, the friction coefficient is higher. When surface roughness is extremely low or high, friction coefficient is also high. Using these test results, the friction model considering lubricant viscosity and surface roughness is developed. The validity and accuracy of the friction model are shown by comparing the punch loads among FEM analysis results employing current friction model and conventional friction model respectively and experimental measurement.
The Analytical Consideration for Several Design Parameters of Flat-Die Extrusion Processes
Transactions of Materials Processing, volume 10, issue 7, 2001, Pages 551~557
In the present study, several design parameters of the flat-die extrusion process are investigated using the finite element method. The effects of the location of an extrusion profile, arrangement of multiple extrusion profiles, and the design of various die land have been investigated through the analysis. Several numerical examples of flat-die extrusion of such as C-section, multiple U-shape, and a window guide section, are analyzed. From the comparative study, the effect of design parameters is investigated. In each example, comparing the velocity distribution with that of the original design, it has been shown that the design modification affords more uniform distribution.
Physical Modeling of Process Parameters for Aluminum-Foam Generation
Transactions of Materials Processing, volume 10, issue 7, 2001, Pages 558~564
An experimental modeling is applied to investigate the formation of forms in molten aluminum By using a specially designed equipment, the effect of process variables, such as the shape of stirrer, stirring velocity and fluid viscosity, on the formation of foams were studied in the glycerine added water. Bubbles formed in water had various diameter from 1 to 10 mm and the number of bubbles was 0 to 20/
. It turned out that among various variables the stirring velocity and fluid viscosity played important roles on the formation of bubbles. The results obtained from the model experiment were preyed to be convincible also in the real aluminum foam.
High Temperature Compressive Deformation Behavior of the Bulk Metallic Glass Zr-Ti-Cu-Ni-Be Alloy
Transactions of Materials Processing, volume 10, issue 7, 2001, Pages 565~572
It is well known that a multicomponent
bulk metallic glass alloy shows good bulk glass forming ability due to its high resistance to crystallization in the undercooled liquid state. DSC and XRD have been performed to confirm the amorphous structure of the master alloy. To investigate the mechanical properties and deformation behavior of the bulk metallic
alloy, a series of compression tests has been carried out at the temperatures ranging from
at the various initial strain rates from
. Three types of nominal stress-strain curves have been identified such as linear stress-strain relationship meaning fracture at maximum stress, plastic deformation including stress overshoot and steady-state flow, plastic deformation without stress overshoot depending on the strain rate and test temperature. Also DSC analysis for the compressed specimens was carried out to investigate the change of structure, thermal stability and crystallization behavior for the various test conditions.
The Prediction of Dynamic Recrystallization and Grain Size of 304 Stainless Steel during Hot Deformation
Transactions of Materials Processing, volume 10, issue 7, 2001, Pages 573~578
The flow stress of 304 stainless steel during hot forming process were determined by conducting hot compression tests at the range of 1273 K∼1423 K and 0.05 /s∼2.0 /s as these are typical temperature and strain rate in hot forging operation. In this material, Dynamic recrystallization was found to be the major softening mechanism with this conditions as Previous studies. Based on the observed phenomena, a constitutive model of flow stress was assumed as a function of strain, strain rate, temperature. In the constitutive model, the effects of strain hardening and dynamic recrystallization were taken into consideration. A finite element method connected to constitutive model was performed to predict the dynamic recrystallization behaviors and also stress-strain curves in hot compression of 304 stainless steel.
Shape Prediction in Eulerian Analysis of Steady State Shape Rolling
Transactions of Materials Processing, volume 10, issue 7, 2001, Pages 579~583
Shape changes of a workpiece in an Eulerian Finite Element analysis for the steady state, three-roll-stand shape rolling are modelled. Although an Eulerian analysis has many advantages for the steady state rolling problems, it necessitates an assumption about the unknown shape of the control volume. In almost all cases, the assumed control volume does not match the final shape and the control volume should be updated. This update can be accomplished by performing a free surface correction. The final shape of a material point, which has a spherical shape at the inlet, can be also predicted by integrating a deformation gradient along a stream line. Analyses of three-roll-stand shape rolling are performed and the results are discussed in detail.
