    Thermo-Mechanical Analysis of the Sealing Performance of a Diesel-Engine Cylinder Gasket

    Xulan Wang1,*, Zezhong Chen1, Changzhen Liu1, Wei Ren2, Bo Wu1, Shude Ji1, Xiaofei Chen1, Shijie Wen1, Yonggang Hao1

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.17, No.4, pp. 821-831, 2021, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2021.014707

    Abstract Taking the combustor composite structure of a high-strength diesel engine as the main research object, dedicated tests have been conducted to verify the accuracy of three distinct cylinder gasket pressure simulation models. Using the measured cylinder gasket compression rebound curve, a gasket unit has been designed and manufactured. For this unit, the influence of the bolt pretension, cylinder body and cylinder head material on gasket sealing pressure has been investigated systematically in conditions of thermo-mechanical coupling. The results show that the bolt pretension force is one of the most important factors affecting the cylinder gasket sealing pressure. The change of… More >

    Prediction of Melt Pool Dimension and Residual Stress Evolution with Thermodynamically-Consistent Phase Field and Consolidation Models during Re-Melting Process of SLM

    Kang-Hyun Lee1, Gun Jin Yun1,2,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.66, No.1, pp. 87-112, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2020.012688

    Abstract Re-melting process has been utilized to mitigate the residual stress level in the selective laser melting (SLM) process in recent years. However, the complex consolidation mechanism of powder and the different material behavior after the first laser melting hinder the direct implementation of the re-melting process. In this work, the effects of re-melting on the temperature and residual stress evolution in the SLM process are investigated using a thermo-mechanically coupled finite element model. The degree of consolidation is incorporated in the energy balance equation based on the thermodynamically-consistent phase-field approach. The drastic change of material properties due to the variation… More >

    Thermo-Mechanical Analysis of Restored Molar Tooth using Finite Element Analysis

    R. V. Uddanwadiker*

    Molecular & Cellular Biomechanics, Vol.10, No.4, pp. 289-302, 2013, DOI:10.3970/mcb.2013.010.289

    Abstract The aim of the study is to find most optimum combination of crown material and adhesive to avoid loosening and thereby failure of restored tooth. This study describes the Thermo-Mechanical analysis of restored molar tooth crown for determination of the stress levels due to thermal and mechanical loads on restored molar tooth. The potential use of the 3-D model was demonstrated and analyzed using different materials for crown. Thermal strain, stress and deformation were measured at hot and cold conditions in ANSYS and correlated with analytical calculation and existing experimental data for model validation and optimization. It is concluded that… More >

    Dynamic Mesh Refining and Iterative Substructure Method for FilletWelding Thermo-Mechanical Analysis

    Hui Huang, Hidekazu Murakawa

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.106, No.3, pp. 187-201, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2015.106.187

    Abstract Dynamic mesh refining method (DMRM) developed previously was extended to multi-level refinement, and employed to perform thermal-mechanical analysis of fillet welding. The DMRM has been successfully incorporated with another efficient technique, the iterative substructure method (ISM) to greatly enhance the computation speed of welding simulation. The basic concept, hierarchical modeling and computation flowchart are described for the proposed method. A flange-to-pipe welding problem has been solved with a commercial code and the novel method to demonstrate its high accuracy and efficiency. Furthermore, the numerical analysis was performed on a large scale stiffened welding structure, and comparison of welding deformation between… More >

    Coupled Thermo-Mechanical Analysis of One-Layered and Multilayered Isotropic and Composite Shells

    S. Brischetto1, E. Carrera2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.56, No.3, pp. 249-302, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.056.249

    Abstract This work considers the fully coupled thermo-mechanical analysis of one-layered and multilayered isotropic and composite shells. The temperature is assumed a primary variable as the displacement; it is therefore directly obtained from the model and this feature permits the temperature field to be evaluated through the thickness direction. Three problems are analyzed: - static analysis of shells with imposed temperature on the external surfaces; - static analysis of shells subjected to a mechanical load, with the possibility of considering the temperature field effects; - a free vibration problem, with the evaluation of the temperature field effects. In the first problem,… More >
