    Simulating the Effect of Temperature Gradient on Grain Growth of 6061-T6 Aluminum Alloy via Monte Carlo Potts Algorithm

    Qi Wu*, Jianan Li, Lianchun Long, Linao Liu

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.129, No.1, pp. 99-116, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2021.015669

    Abstract During heat treatment or mechanical processing, most polycrystalline materials experience grain growth, which significantly affects their mechanical properties. Microstructure simulation on a mesoscopic scale is an important way of studying grain growth. A key research focus of this type of method has long been how to efficiently and accurately simulate the grain growth caused by a non-uniform temperature field with temperature gradients. In this work, we propose an improved 3D Monte Carlo Potts (MCP) method to quantitatively study the relationship between non-uniform temperature fields and final grain morphologies. Properties of the aluminum alloy AA6061-T6 are… More >

    Corrosion Protection of 5083 AA in Saline Water by Polyacrylonitrile Nanofibers

    Enas H. Ali, Juman A. Naser*, Zainab W. Ahmed, Taki A. Himdan

    Journal of Renewable Materials, Vol.9, No.11, pp. 1927-1939, 2021, DOI:10.32604/jrm.2021.015624

    Abstract Polymeric nanofibers are a promising technology to protect the metal surfaces from corrosion. Through the literature search, the use of polyacrylonitrile nanofibres (PANNFs) as a corrosion inhibitor coating for aluminum alloys has not been evaluated. This work includes the development of a new, lightweight, high surface area and efficient coating of PANNFs that produced using electrospinning process to resist the corrosion of aluminum alloys (AA5083) which immersed in 0.6 M NaCl at alkaline medium (pH = 12) and acidic medium (pH = 1) at a range of temperatures (293–323) K. The PANNFs coating was successfully… More >

    Statistical Analysis of Fatigue Life Data of A356.2-T6 Aluminum Alloy

    Ramamurty Raju P.1, Rajesh S.1, Satyanarayana B.2, Ramji K.3

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.7, No.1&2, pp. 139-152, 2011, DOI:10.3970/sdhm.2011.007.139

    Abstract This paper presents the details of method of sample size determination to estimate the characteristic fatigue life of aluminum alloy, A356.2-T6. The characteristic fatigue life of the alloy has been estimated by assuming log normal distribution model. A step wise procedure is outlined to determine the number of specimens required at predetermined stress amplitude to estimate the fatigue life with an acceptable error at 50% probability and various confidence levels, 90%, 95% and 99%. Maximum percentage of errors has also been calculated for the above probability and confidence levels. Details of generation of S-N curve More >

    Experimental Study of Shot Peening Followed by Cold Spray Coating on Residual Stresses of the Treated Parts

    R. Ghelichi1, S. Bagherifard1, I. Fernandez Parienete2, M.Guagliano1,3, Simone Vezzù4

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.6, No.1, pp. 17-30, 2010, DOI:10.3970/sdhm.2010.006.017

    Abstract Coating deposition processes such as cold spraying are commonly employed to increase wear and fatigue resistance and consequently to enhance longevity of engineering components. Such processes typically introduce residual stresses into the coated surface, which in turn affect efficiency of coatings and play an important role in coating durability. In fact residual stresses are the key parameter to obtain compact and well-adherent coatings. They can modify several coating properties such as adhesion, structure, toughness, hardness reflecting on the macroscopic chemical and mechanical behavior of the coating.

    Sample Size Determination for Development of S-N Curve of A356.2-T6 Aluminum Alloy

    P. Ramamurty Raju1, B. Satyanarayana2, K. Ramji3

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.4, No.3, pp. 161-172, 2008, DOI:10.3970/sdhm.2008.004.161

    Abstract This paper presents the details of method of sample size determination to estimate the characteristic fatigue life of aluminum alloy. The characteristic fatigue life of Aluminum alloy A356.2-T6 has been estimated by assuming a two parameter Weibull distribution model. A stepwise procedure is outlined to determine the number of specimens required at a predetermined stress amplitude to estimate the fatigue life within an acceptable error at a given probability and confidence level. The percentage of error is calculated at various probabilities and confidence levels (C.L). The probabilities considered are 50%, 90% and 95% whereas C.Ls More >

    Improvement of Flat Surfaces Quality of Aluminum Alloy 6061-O By a Proposed Trajectory of Ball Burnishing Tool

    Ruba Alghazoul1, Almohanad Makki1, Magd Abdel Wahab2,3,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.61, No.2, pp. 555-568, 2019, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2019.06337

    Abstract Burnishing is a profitable process of surface finishing due to its ability to be automated, which makes burnishing method more desirable than other finishing methods. To obtain high surface finish, non-stop operation is required for CNC machine and we can attain that by choosing a suitable trajectory of the finishing tool. In other words, burnishing paths should be multidirectional rather than monotonic, in order to cover uniformly the surface. Indeed, the burnishing force is also a key parameter of the burnishing process because it determines the degree of plastic deformation, and that makes determining the… More >

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.52, No.2, pp. 105-121, 2016, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2016.052.105

    Abstract The methods of numerical simulation and test are combined to analyze the impact behavior of glass fiber reinforced aluminum alloy laminate (GLARE). A new failure criteria is proposed to obtain the impact failure of GLARE, and combined with material progressive damage method by writing code of LS-DYNA.

The simulation results have been shown that progressive damage finite element model established is reliable. Through the application of the finite element model established, the delamination of GLARE evolution progress More >

    Analysis and Experiment on Incremental Forming Process for the Spiral Plate of Continuous Screw Conveyer

    S. Gao1, K. Nakasa2, K. Nogi3, L. Huang4

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.22, No.1, pp. 39-54, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2011.022.039

    Abstract An incremental press-forming method was newly developed for the fabrication of spiral plates of a continuous screw conveyer, boring screw, screw pump and so on. In this method, a pair of V-shaped punches and dies with two opposite inclined edges are used instead of punch and die with spiral surfaces. The experiments on incremental forming were carried out on aluminum alloy and steel disks with a hole and a slit, and the deformation process of the plate during and after the press-forming was simulated by a finite element method (FEM). The press-forming shows that the… More >
