    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.27, No.2, pp. 1-1, 2023, DOI:10.32604/icces.2023.09687

    Abstract Short-term wind process is normally assumed to be a Gaussian distribution, such as TurbSim, the widely used 3D wind field tool. Nowadays, newest researches indicate that non-Gaussian wind model is believed to be more accurate according to the field observation data. A new numerical method is proposed to generate non-Gaussian wind filed using translation process theory and spectral representation method. This study presents a comprehensive investigation on power production and blades fatigue damage of floating offshore wind turbines (FOWTs) to the non-Gaussian wind field. The comparisons of Gaussian and non-Gaussian simulation results indicate that the non-Gaussian wind fields will cost… More >

    On the Fatigue Crack Initiation in Metallic Sealing Rings: From Manufacture to Service

    Pandi Zhao1, Zebang Zheng1,*, Mei Zhan1, Hongwei Li1

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.27, No.1, pp. 1-1, 2023, DOI:10.32604/icces.2023.09508

    Abstract Metallic sealing rings made from nickel-based superalloys are critical components of aero engines that prevent the leakage of high-pressure liquid or gas fuel. As one of the main failure modes, fatigue cracking has been a concern for the aerospace industries because the formation of even a micro-crack may cause an aviation accident. For the purpose of manufacturing fatigue-resisting sealing rings, much effort has been spent on the lifetime predicting under fatigue loadings. However, the fatigue analysis of metallic sealing rings is challenging due to several aspects. On the one hand, the diameter of the rings (>100mm) is orders of magnitude… More >

    Multiscale Modeling for Thermomenchanical Fatigue Damage Analysis and Life Prediction for Woven Ceramic Matrix Composites at Elevated Temperature

    Zhengmao Yang1,*, Junjie Yang2, Yang Chen3, Fulei Jing4

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.26, No.4, pp. 1-1, 2023, DOI:10.32604/icces.2023.09229

    Abstract Woven ceramic matrix composites (CMCs), exhibiting excellent thermomechanical properties at high temperatures, are promising as alternative materials to the conventional nickel-based superalloys in the hot section components of aero-engines. Therefore, understanding and predicting the lifetime of CMCs is critical. Fatigue prediction of woven CMCs currently involves long-term and costly testing. A feasible alternative is to use predictive modelling based on a deep understanding of the damage mechanisms. Therefore, this study develops a multiscale analysis modelling method for predicting the fatigue life of CMC materials at high temperature by investigating the thermomechanical fatigue damage evolution. To represent the global thermomechanical properties… More >

    An Acceleration Scheme for the Phase Field Fatigue Fracture Simulation with a Concurrent Temporal Homogenization Method

    Shuo Yang1, Yongxing Shen1,*

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.26, No.4, pp. 1-1, 2023, DOI:10.32604/icces.2023.09207

    Abstract Fatigue refers to repeated cyclic loading well below the ultimate failure stress of the structure. It accounts for most mechanical failures, and thus deserves serious consideration in engineering practice. Phase field approach is a powerful tool for fracture simulation, which tracks arbitrary and complicated crack paths without extra criterion. This approach has been widely applied to various cracking problems, such as shell fracture, beam fracture , etc. The phase field approach for fracture has been adapted for fatigue fracture in recent years. Due to the mesh requirement of the phase field approach and the large amount of load steps of… More >

    Detection of Fatigue Cracks in Metal Material Based on Peridynamic Differential Operator

    Jiaming Liang1, Qizheng Wang1, Yile Hu1, Yin Yu1,*

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.25, No.4, pp. 1-1, 2023, DOI:10.32604/icces.2023.09307

    Abstract The most common form of damage in aircraft structures is fatigue damage. Accurate detection of fatigue crack tip is the cornerstone for prediction of crack propagation path and the basis for calculation of residual strength and stiffness. It is of great significance to improve structural fatigue resistance design. When simulating the crack growth problem based on the traditional method, the crack tip needs to be re-meshed so that resulting in low calculation efficiency. The expansion of fatigue cracks has a complex shape, for example, the fatigue crack damage on the aircraft skin often shows a curved shape. The current traditional… More >

    Zhenan Zhao1,*, Weizhu Yang2,3, Lei Li2, Shouyi Sun2, Yan Zeng2

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.25, No.3, pp. 1-2, 2023, DOI:10.32604/icces.2023.010342

    Abstract The hot section components are usually in service under cyclic loading in an extreme working environment with high rotational speed at high temperatures, which is prone to fatigue failure. It is reported that fatigue related failures have accounted for over 50% of all failures of hot section components. Consequently, fatigue related failure at high temperature is one of the most important factors that shortens the service life of hot section components. Ni-based superalloy GH4169, similar as Inconel 718 (IN718), is a γ′′ and γ′ precipitation strengthened alloy. For decades, GH4169 superalloy keeps being an important material in hot section components… More >

    Shuiting Ding1, Liangliang Zuo2, Guo Li2,*, Zhenlei Li3, Shuyang Xia2, Shaochen Bao3

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.25, No.1, pp. 1-1, 2023, DOI: 10.32604/icces.2023.09911

    Abstract This paper presents the assessment of fatigue damage for GH4169 under cyclic loading based on thermodynamic entropy generation at elevated temperature. According to the second law of thermodynamics, fatigue crack propagation is an irreversible thermodynamic dissipative process in which damage accumulates and entropy generates with each cycle until fracture occurs. In this work, crack growth process is simulated by commercial finite element software ABAQUS, and the concept of cyclic entropy generation rate (CEGR) is proposed to present the entropy generation of the crack tip region in a single loading cycle, where the calculation of CEGR is dependent on the evolution… More >
