    Finite Element Simulations of Four-holes Indirect Extrusion Processes of Seamless Tube

    Dyi-Cheng1, Syuan-Yi Syong1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.13, No.3, pp. 191-200, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2009.013.191
    Abstract Finite element simulations are performed to investigate the plastic deformation behavior of Ti-6Al-4V titanium alloy during its indirect extrusion through a four-hole die. The simulations assume the die, mandrel and container to be rigid bodies and ignore the temperature change induced during the extrusion process. Under various extrusion conditions, the present numerical analysis investigates the effective stress and profile of product at the exit. The relative influences of the friction factors, the temperature of billet and the eccentricity of four-hole displacement are systematically examined. The simulations focus specifically on the effects of the friction factor, billet temperature and eccentricity ratio… More >

    Boundary Particle Method with High-Order Trefftz Functions

    Wen Chen1,2, Zhuo-Jia Fu1,3, Qing-Hua Qin3
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.13, No.3, pp. 201-218, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2009.013.201
    Abstract This paper presents high-order Trefftz functions for some commonly used differential operators. These Trefftz functions are then used to construct boundary particle method for solving inhomogeneous problems with the boundary discretization only, i.e., no inner nodes and mesh are required in forming the final linear equation system. It should be mentioned that the presented Trefftz functions are nonsingular and avoids the singularity occurred in the fundamental solution and, in particular, have no problem-dependent parameter. Numerical experiments demonstrate the efficiency and accuracy of the present scheme in the solution of inhomogeneous problems. More >

    An Analytical Method for Computing the One-Dimensional Backward Wave Problem

    Chein-ShanLiu1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.13, No.3, pp. 219-234, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2009.013.219
    Abstract The present paper reveals a new computational method for the illposed backward wave problem. The Fourier series is used to formulate a first-kind Fredholm integral equation for the unknown initial data of velocity. Then, we consider a direct regularization to obtain a second-kind Fredholm integral equation. The termwise separable property of kernel function allows us to obtain an analytical solution of regularization type. The sufficient condition of the data for the existence and uniqueness of solution is derived. The error estimate of the regularization solution is provided. Some numerical results illustrate the performance of the new method. More >

    Young's Modulus Measurement of Thin Films by Resonant Frequency Method Using Magnetostrictive Resonator

    Hao-Miao Zhou1, Fang Li1, Qiang Ye1, Ji-Xiang Zhao1, Zhe-Lei Xia1, YingTang2, Jing Wei3
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.13, No.3, pp. 235-248, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2009.013.235
    Abstract At present, there are many methods about Young's modulus measurement of thin films, but so far there is no recognized simple, non-destructive and cheaper standard measurement method. Considering thin films with various thicknesses were sputter deposited on the magnetostrictive resonator and monitoring the resonator's first-order longitudinal resonant frequency shift both before and after deposition induced by external magnetic field, an Young's modulus assessing method based on classical laminated plate theory is presented in this paper. Using the measured natural frequencies of Au, Cu, Cr, Al and SiC materials with various thicknesses in the literature, the Young's modulus of the five… More >
