The Development of Unique DYNA3D for Orthotropic Materials

The Development of Unique DYNA3D for Orthotropic Materials

A unique orthogonal rotation tensor was defined and implemented into the Lawrence DYNA3D code in this paper. This tensor is vital for the implementation work of a newly formulated constitutive model proposed by M. K. to ensure the analysis was precisely integrated in the isoclinic configuration. The implementation of this unique orthogonal rotation tensor into the LLNL-DYNA3D was performed by referring to three theorems; the deformation gradient is invertible, is symmetric and positive definite and finally the rotation tensor is . The subroutine chkrot93 was adopted to check the accuracy of the proposed algorithm to calculate a proper rotation tensor . This in a matrix form as an input, and one value of output named IERR is generated. The accuracy of the proposed algorithm to define a unique orthogonal rotation tensor was tested and validated with and Plate Impact test of orthotropic materials that have so much application in real world practices. The results obtained in each material direction proved the accuracy of the rotation tensor algorithm to calculate a proper rotation tensor and provide a good agreement for orthotropic materials

An Anisotropic Deformation Analysis of Orthotropic Materials Subjected to High Velocity Impacts

An Anisotropic Deformation Analysis of Orthotropic Materials Subjected to High Velocity Impacts

Earlier work by Butcher predicted the spall strength of AA6061-T6 should vary in accordance with the one- dimensional stress yield strength according to orientation, (Butcher, 1968). Further it was concluded that there is no significant effect on crack formation. Other works have also conducted to investigate the behaviour of spall response of orthotropic materials. Stevens and Tuler for instance concluded that the degree of pre compression, that is the shock amplitude, had no effect on the spall strength of AA6061-T6, (Stevens and Tuler, 1971). In addition, it is shown that the spall strength of AA2024-T86 decreased with increasing temperature, (Schmidt et al., 1978). However, both works concerned on geometrical effects. During shock loading, the compressive input stress is details on the rising part of the shock defined by the HEL of the material. It is observed that the shock is reflected back as a release wave when it reaches a free surface, which consequently takes the material back to ambient stress conditions. Releases from the rear of flyer and target can be arranged by controlling the thickness of the specimen and flyer plate to meet in the middle of the target itself, and where they do so, a zone of net tension will result. If that tension exceeds the tensile strength of the material, the net result is failure (spall), which can be detected by appropriate measurement techniques, (Vignjevic et al., 2002).

Modeling dynamic behaviour including shockwave propagation and spall failure in orthotropic materials

Modeling dynamic behaviour including shockwave propagation and spall failure in orthotropic materials

Much research has been carried out in respect to complex materials behaviour of orthotropic materials under dynamic loading conditions, leading to results in various technologies involving analytical, experimental and computational methods. Despite of this current status, it is generally agreed that there is a need for improved constitutive formulation as well as the corresponding procedures to identify the parameters for these models. Modelling finite strain deformation and failure in such materials requires an appropriate mathematical description. This is a real deal since an appropriate formulation can be very complex, specifically to deal with the orientations of materials orthotropy (Sitnikova et al., 2015). Moreover, there are numerous mechanics of materials issues that have yet to be solved, related to orthotropic elastic and plastic behaviour. For example, shape changes resulting from a deformation process on a continuum level can be very complex when dealing with orthotropic materials since the co-linearity of the principal axis of the stress and strain tensors is no longer in place. Based on this motivation, this research project is conducted to develop a constitutive formulation to predict the behaviour of commercial aluminium alloys undergoing large deformation including failure.

incremental and experimental approaches [12- 18]. But, no inverse finite element method has been developed for design initial blank of orthotropic materials in deep drawing process. In this work, a developed inverse finite element method was presented to obtain strain and stress distribution in final shape and design initial blank of deep drawing process for orthotropic sheets. Accuracy of the present method was evaluated by comparison with the results of ABAQUS, experimental results and numerical methods.

Modelling inelastic behaviour of orthotropic metals in a unique alignment of deviatoric plane within the tress space

Modelling inelastic behaviour of orthotropic metals in a unique alignment of deviatoric plane within the tress space

However, in the case of orthotropic materials this co-linearity is not in place. Hence the equivalent relationship cannot be defined for orthotropic materials. If one maintains the assumption that pressure is the state of stress induced by an isotropic state of strain (uniform compression or expansion) then a more general definition of pressure is required, [73]. This leads to a number of possible de fi nitions of pressure as a vector in the principal stress space which is not co-linear with the conventional hydrostatic alignment for orthotropic materials. To explore this statement further Vignjevic has proposed a new expression for generalized pressure or stress related to uniform compression. The ability to describe shock propagation in orthotropic materials is investigated with experimental plate impact data and showed a good agreement with the physical behaviour of the consid- ered material (carbon fi bre reinforced epoxy).

In the case of the stator, the same disc sub- structures were applied. Nevertheless, the geometry of the stator is completely different to that of the rotor. The configuration with the two discs helps to make the overall structure stiffer and therefore reduce the deflection. But as composites are orthotropic materials, the fibre

PERFORMANCE OF ORTHOTROPIC ANNULAR FINS HAVING CONTACT RESISTANCE

PERFORMANCE OF ORTHOTROPIC ANNULAR FINS HAVING CONTACT RESISTANCE

Due to low density and low coefficient of thermal expansion, orthotropic materials, namely, the polymer matrix composites are finding their way in many of the engineering application. The present study investigates the performance of the orthotropic annular fin. The thermal conductivity along radial and axial direction is governed by the thermal conductivity ratio (K), which is an important parameter for orthotropic annular fin. The work then numerically examines in two dimensions, the thermal performance of the annular fin at different thermal conductivity ratio (K) for the rectangular profile using the finite difference method.

P-Waves Interaction with Crack at Orthotropic Interface

P-Waves Interaction with Crack at Orthotropic Interface

Srivastava et al. [22] solved the problem of interaction of shear waves with Griffith crack situated at the interface of two bonded dissimilar elastic half spaces. The problem becomes more difficult and complicated when boundaries are present in the media. Li [14] obtained the analytical solution for a static problem of two bonded orthotropic strips containing an interfacial crack. The dynamical problem was studied by Matbuly [18] and obtained the analytical expression of stress intensity factor. Diffraction problems involving multiple cracks had been studied by many authors.

Modelling rate dependent behaviour of orthotropic metals

Modelling rate dependent behaviour of orthotropic metals

Since the offset of strain typically used to define the yield point (stress at which material begins to deform plastically) of metals is very small; approximately 0.2% of the strain, the formulation is limited to small elastic deformation with large rotation; hence, the Mandel stress tensor is symmetric. Hill’s yield criterion is adopted to characterise the plasticity of orthotropic materials. It can be observed that this yield criterion has been widely used in industrial simulations and provides reasonably good results as well as being numerically efficient. The expansion of the new material model yield surface (hardening part) is characterised by a referential curve of the thermally micromechanical-based model, the Mechanical Threshold Model (MTS). Generally, a finite “saturation stress”, or what can be described as a constant but small hardening rate, is achievable at finite strains of most metallic materials. The other models such as Johnson-Cook (JC) and Zerilli-Armstrong (ZA) models are unable to capture this behaviour. Moreover, the MTS model fits the experimental data more reasonably at various strains of the saturation stress.

Eects of Magnetic Field and Inclined Load in Micropolar Thermoelastic Medium Possessing Cubic Symmetry under Three Theories

Following various methods, the elastic elds of various loadings, inclusion and inhomogene- ity problems, and interaction energy of point defects and dislocation arrangement have been discussed extensively in the past. Generally, all materials have elastic anisotropic properties which mean the mechanical behavior of an engineering material is character- ized by the direction dependence. However, the three dimensional study for an anisotropic material is much more complicated to obtain than the isotropic one, owing to the large number of elastic constants involved in the calculation. In particular, transversely isotropic and orthotropic materials, which may not be distinguished from each other in plane strain and plane stress, have been more regularly studied. A brief look at the literature on micropolar orthotropic continua shows that Iesan [7]-[9] analyzed the static problems of plane micropolar strain of a homogeneous and orthotropic elastic solid, the torsion prob- lem of homogeneous and orthotropic cylinders in the linear theory of micropolar elasticity and bending of orthotropic micropolar elastic beams by terminal couple. Nakamura et al. [21] applied the nite element method to orthotropic micropolar elasticity. Kumar and Choudhary [10]-[14] have discussed various problems in orthotropic micropolar continua. Singh and Kumar [26] and Singh [27] have also studied the plane waves in micropolar generalized thermoelastic solid.

Unique Rotation Tensor Formulation to Predict Three-Dimensional Deformation Behaviour of Aluminum Alloy AA7010

Unique Rotation Tensor Formulation to Predict Three-Dimensional Deformation Behaviour of Aluminum Alloy AA7010

The proposed formulation to define the isoclinic configuration adopted in [11] has been briefly explained in the previous publication [12]. Therefore, this paper is constructed to rigorously discuss the formulation of the proposed orthogonal rotation tensor and further explore the capability to deal with finite strain deformation in three-dimensional mode. The proposed formulation in [11] that is developed in the isoclinic configuration ̅ provides a unique treatment for elastic and plastic anisotropy. The important features of this constitutive model are the multiplicative decomposition of the deformation gradient and a Mandel stress tensor combined with the new stress tensor decomposition generalized for orthotropic materials [13]. The formulation of new Mandel stress tensor ̂ defined in the isoclinic configuration is given by

Analytical and Numerical Investigation of a Composite Material Rod under Tensile Loading

Analytical and Numerical Investigation of a Composite Material Rod under Tensile Loading

ABSTRACT: Composite materials have a long history of usage. Straw was used by the Israelites to strengthen mud bricks. Plywood was used by the ancient Egyptians to achieve superior strength arid resistance to thermal expansion as well as to swelling. Now days, fiber-reinforced, resin-matrix composite materials that have high strength-to-weight and stiffness-to-weight ratios have become important in weight-sensitive applications such as aircraft and space vehicles. The key material properties for usual engineering applications are strength and stiffness. The fibers are stiff and have high strength and they are expected to carry the load to which the structure is submitted. The matrix has low strength and low stiffness and it gives the shape to the component and transfers the loads to fibers and between them. The usual design criterion for composite material is based on trying to align the fibers with most critically loaded directions of mechanical component. This paper based on an investigation to find out elastic constants and other mechanical properties of an orthotropic (glass epoxy) composite lamina theoretically and by finite element analysis because composite structure may not yield the exact results due to orthotropic or non linear behavior of composite material.

Dynamic Design of Thick Orthotropic Cantilever Plates with Consideration of Bimoments

Dynamic Design of Thick Orthotropic Cantilever Plates with Consideration of Bimoments

The paper is devoted to dynamic design of thick orthotropic cantilever plates by ap- plying the bimoment theory of plates, which takes into account the forces, moments and bimoments; and the theory takes into account nonlinear law of displacements distribution in cross section of the plate. The methods for constructing bimoment theory are based on Hooke’s Law, three-dimensional equations of the theory of dy- namic elasticity and the method of displacements expansion into Maclaurin series. The article gives the expressions to determine the forces, moments and bimoments. Bimoment theory of plates is described by two unrelated two-dimensional systems with nine equations in each. On each edge of the plate, depending on the type of fas- tening, nine boundary conditions are given. As an example, the solution of the prob- lem of dynamic bending of thick isotropic and orthotropic plate under the influence of transverse dynamic loads in the form of the Heaviside function is given. The equa- tions of motion of the plate are solved by numerical method of finite differences. The numerical results are obtained for isotropic and orthotropic plate. The graphs of changes of displacements and stresses of faces surfaces of the plate are presented. Maximum values of these displacements are found and analyzed. It is shown that by Timoshenko theory numerical values of stresses are much smaller compared to the ones obtained by bimoment theory of plates. Maximum numerical values of genera- lized displacements, forces, moments, and bimoments are obtained and presented in tabular form. The analysis of numerical results is done and the conclusions are drawn.
