Abstract

엔지니어링 설계에서 유한 요소, 유한 차분 및 전산 유체 역학 분석 소프트웨어와 같은 수치 도구의 일상적인 사용이 최근 몇 년 동안 증가했습니다. 소프트웨어 및 하드웨어 기술의 발전은보다 비선형적이고 복잡한 3 차원 분석이 수행되고 있음을 의미합니다.

그러나 본질적으로 “블랙 박스”인 이러한 강력한 소프트웨어는 “컴퓨팅”기술을 보유하고 있지만 광범위한 엔지니어링 경험이 필요하지 않은 분석가의 손에 “컴퓨터 보조 재해”로 이어질 수 있습니다. 품질 보증 절차의 엄격한 구현은 수치 모델이나 분석 기법이 정확한지 확인할 필요가 없을 수 있습니다.

이 백서에서는 복잡성이 증가하는 세 가지 실제 토목 공학 응용 프로그램에서 수치 분석 결과를 검증하는 방법을 설명합니다. 여기에는 유한 요소법을 이용한 수조 탱크의 구조 해석, 전산 유체 역학법을 이용한 수력 구조물 위의 홍수 조사, 유한 ​​차분법을 이용한 안벽 시공 시뮬레이션 등이 있습니다. 입력 데이터의 불확실성 수준과 각 사례에 대한 계산 결과의 신뢰성에 대해 논의합니다. 분석 과정에서 몇 가지 흥미로운 결과가 발견되었습니다.

첫 번째 사례 연구는 시공의 질이 구조물의 성능에 상당한 영향을 미친다는 것을 보여주었습니다. 그러나 설계자는 설계 단계에서 이러한 상황을 수량화하고 분석하지 못할 수도 있습니다. 필요할 경우 향후 역분석은 물론 설계 검증의 기준점이 될 수 있도록 공사 종료 시 모니터링의 중요성이 필수적입니다. 유한 요소 분석은 복잡한 문제를 분석할 수 있는 강력한 수치 도구이지만, 분석가들은 문제의 행동이 단순하고 잘 이해되는 것처럼 보일 수 있는 상황에서 예상치 못한 결과를 만날 수 있도록 준비해야 합니다.

두 번째 사례 연구에서는 중요한 배수로 구조에 전산 유체 역학 분석이 처음으로 적용 되었기 때문에 엄격한 검증 프로세스가 강조됩니다. 그것은 2D ogee 방수로 프로파일로 시작하여 문제의 방수로의 3D 모델을 분석하기 위해 진행되는 방식으로 수행되었습니다.
계산된 결과를 각 단계에서 이론 및 물리적 테스트 데이터와 비교했습니다. 유체 흐름 문제의 비선형적 특성에도 불구하고, 분석은 확신을 가지고 실제 설계 목적에 적합한 결과를 제공할 수 있었습니다.

최종 사례 연구에서는 안벽의 거동이 시공 이력과 매립 방식에 영향을 받은 것으로 나타났습니다. 벽의 움직임은 매우 가변적인 토양 속성에도 불구하고 질적으로도 단순한 비선형 토양 모델을 사용하여 정확하게 예측되었습니다. 지속적인 모니터링 기록이 없기 때문에 검증은 어려웠습니다. 계산된 결과를 검증하는 열쇠는 수치 소프트웨어 도구를 사용하지 않는 독립적인 계산을 찾는 것입니다. 대부분의 경우 이러한 솔루션을 사용할 수 있습니다. 그러나 다른 경우에는 실험실 또는 현장 관찰에만 의존할 수 있습니다.

Introduction

오늘날 수치 해석은 대부분의 엔지니어링 설계에서 필수적인 부분을 형성합니다. 따라서 결과 검증의 필요성은 분석 기술 / 방법론을 신뢰할 수 있고 설계자가 계산 된 결과에 대한 확신을 가질 수 있도록 설계 프로세스 전반에 걸쳐 매우 중요합니다.

일반적인 관행은 고전 이론, 실험 데이터, 게시 된 데이터, 유사한 구조의 성능 및 다른 사람이 수행 한 수치 계산에 대해 결과를 검증하는 것입니다. 때때로 소프트웨어 개발자가 제공 한 벤치 마크 또는 검증 예제가 이러한 목적으로 사용될 수 있지만 전체 범위의 문제를 포괄 할만큼 포괄적 인 경우는 거의 없습니다.

수치 해석을 시작하기 전에 분석가는 입력 데이터의 신뢰성, 소프트웨어 도구가 문제의 문제를 해결할 수 있는지 여부 및 결과를 검증하는 방법을 결정해야합니다. 검증 프로세스가 많은 실무자들에 의해 품질 보증 절차의 일부로 채택되었지만 비용이 많이 드는 실패가 여전히 발생했습니다 [1].

Validation

결과 검증의 필요성은 수치 분석의 사용 (남용)에서 일부 나쁜 업계 관행을 관찰함으로써 강화 될 수 있습니다. 수치 계산을 수행하기 위해 고용 된 일부 엔지니어 / 분석가는 계산 뒤에있는 기본 이론을 완전히 이해하지 못하거나 숨겨진 함정을 처리 할 수있는 실제 엔지니어링 경험이 충분하지 않을 수 있습니다.

일부 소프트웨어가 “CAD와 유사”해지고 많은 사람들이 작동하기 쉽다고 주장하기 때문에 엔지니어링 회사가 대학원 엔지니어 대신 초보를 고용하여 수치 모델링 및 분석을 수행하는 경향이 점차 증가하고 있습니다.

사용자는 복잡한 지오메트리 모델을 생성하고, 적절한 요소와 메시를 만들고, 각 하중 케이스에 대한 경계 조건 (접촉, 하중 및 고정)을 적용하고, 속성을 할당하고, 제출에 필요한 모든 플래그 / 스위치 / 버튼을 설정하는 데 상당한 노력을 기울일 것입니다.

분석이 실행됩니다. 자체 검사를위한 일부 품질 보증 절차는 전처리 단계에서 따를 수 있지만 계산이 완료되고 결과가 후 처리 될 때까지 많은 사용자는 출력이 어느 정도 정확하다고 쉽게 믿을 것입니다. 지오메트리 생성은 수치 모델링 프로세스의 일부일뿐입니다. 가장 어려운 문제 중 하나는 전체 설계 프로세스에서 불확실성을 다루는 것입니다. 재료 속성 및 로딩 순서와 같은 입력과 관련된 불확실성이 있습니다.

예를 들어 모델이 선형 또는 비선형 방식으로 동작하는지 여부와 같이 솔루션 유형의 적절성과 관련된 불확실성이 있습니다. 마지막으로 결과 해석과 관련된 불확실성이 있습니다. 수치 분석에서 결과를 검증하고 문제를 발견하는 데있어 분석가를위한 좋은 방법에 대한 간단한 지침은 없습니다. 그러나 다음 방법을 통해 점차적으로 달성 할 수 있습니다.

• 수치 적 방법 과정에 대한 좋은 이해 – 이것은 학부 및 / 또는 대학원 수준의 공식 교육을 통해 얻을 수 있으며 지속적인 전문성 개발의 일환으로 자습을 통해 더욱 향상 될 수 있습니다.
• 특정 유형의 문제에 대한 기본 이론과 해결책의 범위를 잘 이해합니다. 이 역시 위와 같은 교육을 통해 이루어질 수 있습니다.
• 실제 문제를 해결하는 데 공학적 판단을 사용하고 수치 분석을 수행 한 경험이 있습니다. 이는 숙련 된 엔지니어가 분석가를 적절하게 감독하는 환경에서 작업함으로써 얻을 수 있습니다.

품질 보증 시스템의 구현이 실행 가능한 솔루션으로 이어지는 엔지니어링 판단을 대체하는 것은 아니라는 점에 유의해야합니다. 복잡한 대규모 모델을 분석하기 전에 시뮬레이션 기술과 문제의 근본적인 동작을 완전히 이해하기 위해 간단한 테스트 모델을 사용하여 수치 “실험”을 수행해야하는 경우가 매우 많습니다.

경험에 따르면 때때로 테스트 모델 자체가 분석가가 최종 설계 솔루션에 도달 할 수있는 충분한 정보를 제공 할 수 있습니다. 해당 대형 복합 모델의 분석은 설계 기대치를 확인하는 것입니다. 다음 사례 연구는 결과 검증이 수행 된 방법과 신뢰 수준 및 불확실성이 해결된 방법을 보여줍니다.

Applications

일반적인 토목 공학 프로젝트에서 수치 분석은 구조 역학, 기하학 및 유체 역학의 세 가지 기본 분야 중 하나 또는 조합을 포함 할 수 있습니다. 문제의 성격은 토양-구조 상호 작용, 유체-구조 상호 작용 또는 토양-유체 상호 작용 중 하나로 분류 될 수 있습니다.

어떤 경우에는 세 가지 모두를 포함 할 수 있습니다. 잠재적 인 복잡성을 고려하여, 정확도를 잃지 않고 실제 목적을 위해 중요한 동작을 캡처하지 않고 문제를 단순화하기 위해 몇 가지 가정과 이상화가 이루어져야합니다. 이러한 문제를 해결할 수있는 범용 및 특수 수치 분석 소프트웨어가 있습니다. 두 가지 유형의 소프트웨어가 사례 연구에 사용되었습니다.

Case 1 – Deflection of a steel water tank

직경 약 90m의 대형 원형 강철 물 탱크는 처음 채울 때 큰 벽면이 휘어지면서 탱크의 장기적인 구조적 무결성에 대한 우려를 불러 일으켰습니다.

물의 높이는 전체 저장 용량에서 약 10m였습니다. 지붕 구조는 탱크 내부에있는 기둥으로 거의 전적으로지지되었습니다. 스트레이크(strakes)는 벽의 바닥 1/3이 더 두꺼운 고급 강판으로 구성되었습니다. 1 차 윈드 거더는 탱크 상단 주위에 용접되었고 2 차 윈드 거더는베이스 위 2/3에 위치했습니다. 하단 스트레이 크는 환형베이스 플레이트에 필렛 용접되었습니다. 내부 기둥의 기초를 제외한 전체 바닥은 용접 된 강판으로 덮여있었습니다.

이 탱크는 유능한 중간층 사암과 미사암 기반암 위에 압축된 채움물 위에 세워졌습니다. 일련의 축 대칭 유한 요소 분석 (FEA)을 수행하여 관찰된 처짐을 예측할 수 있는지 여부를 결정하고 매일 물을 채우고 비울 때 피로 파괴가 발생할 가능성으로 인해 벽 바닥의 응력 상태를 계산했습니다.

내부 기둥과 지붕 빔을 포함하는 탱크의 12 분의 1 섹터에 대한 3 차원 모델을 처음에 분석하여 벽이 얼마나 많은 지붕 자중을지지하고 축 대칭 가정의 타당성을 조사했는지 조사했습니다. 이 분석의 결과는 지붕 구조의 강성 기여도가 중요하지 않아 후속 축 대칭 모델에 포함되지 않았 음을 보여주었습니다.

그러나 지붕 자체 무게의 작은 부분이 벽에 적용됩니다. 축 대칭 모델은 모든 강철 섹션, 필렛 및 맞대기 용접 및 기초로 구성되었습니다 (그림 1). 그것들은 몇 개의 3 노드 삼각형 축 대칭 요소가있는 4 노드 비 호환 모드 사변형으로 이산화되었습니다.

용접 재료를 통해서만 하중 전달이 허용되도록 용접이 모델링되었습니다. 용접 연결부에 미세한 메시를 사용하여 응력 상태를 정확하게 포착했습니다. 롤러 지지대는 모델의 측면 및 하단 경계에 적용되었습니다. 다음과 같은 하중이 적용되었습니다 :

철골 구조물의 자중, 지붕 자중, 벽의 정수압, 수위에 따른 바닥의 균일 한 압력. 한 모델은 용접 또는베이스의 강판이 플라스틱 힌지를 형성하기 위해 항복되었다고 가정했습니다. 이 경우 벽 바닥에서 핀 연결이 모델링되었습니다.

벽 처짐은 그림 2에 나와 있습니다. 측정 범위와 계산 된 결과는 비교 목적으로 표시됩니다. 계산 된 벽 처짐을 검증하기 위해 두 벽 두께에 대한 Timoshenko 및 Woinowsky-Krieger [2]에 기반한 고전 이론도 그림에 표시되었습니다. 계산 된 편향은 이론적 계산에 의해 제한됨을 관찰 할 수 있습니다.

벽 두께의 변화로 인한 전이가 분석에서 포착되었습니다. 이것은 유한 요소 모델에 대한 확신을 제공했습니다. 윈드 거더와 구속 된베이스의 영향도 볼 수 있습니다. 윈드 거더 설치로 인해 초기 변형이 발생하여 공사가 끝날 때 벽 상단이 안쪽으로 당겨질 수 있습니다. 굽힘 동작이 발생한베이스 근처를 제외하고는 후프 동작이 벽 동작을 지배했습니다.

계산된 최대 처짐이 측정된 순서와 동일하더라도 최대 돌출이 발생한 높이는 예측되지 않았습니다. 실제로 조사 데이터는 몇 가지 가능한 시나리오를 제안했습니다.베이스에 플라스틱 힌지 형성 (그러나이 영역에서 계산 된 응력은 항복 강도를 초과하지 않았습니다). 지반 재료의 국부적 인 베어링 고장 (다시 현장에서 균열과 같은 명백한 지시 신호가 보이지 않음); 또는 탱크 건설이 끝날 때 내장 된 기하학적 결함이있었습니다. 사전 변형 된 탱크에서 역 분석을 수행하여 측정 된 처짐이 정수압 하에서 “회복”되었습니다. 그러나 계산된 응력은 수율을 훨씬 초과했습니다. 불행히도 탱크는 완성 후 첫 번째 충전 전에 즉시 조사되지 않았습니다.

탱크의 원래 디자인과 건설이 2000 년대 초에 수행되었다는 점은 흥미 롭습니다. 설계 계산에 관련 표준 [3]을 사용했습니다. 이 표준은 탱크 벽이 후프 동작만으로 작용한다고 가정하고이 구조의 경우가 아닌베이스의 제약 조건을 무시합니다. 벽 처짐의 크기는 기초 강성을 고려한 Rish [4]가 개발 한 고전 이론 [2] 또는 FEA와 같은 수치 분석에 의해 결정될 수 있습니다. 고급 강철을 사용하면 설계자는 강도에는 적합하지만 서비스 가능성에는 필요하지 않은 더 얇은 섹션을 선택해야합니다. 굽힘 강성은 큐브 두께에 의해 결정됩니다. 수중 부하에서 후속 벽 변형 프로파일은 제작 품질에 영향을받습니다. 이것은 설계 단계에서 추정하기 어려웠을 것입니다.

사례 2 – 배수로 배출

호주의 많은 댐 구조는 제한된 수 문학적 정보로 1950 년대와 60 년대에 설계 및 건설되었습니다. 이러한 기존 방수로 구조는 수정 된 가능한 최대 홍수 수준에 대처하기 위해 크기가 작습니다. 증가 된 홍수 조건 하에서 방수로 꼭대기에 대한 음압 생성과 같은 잠재적 인 문제가 발생할 수 있습니다. 이는 방수로 및 게이트 구조에 불안정성 또는 캐비테이션 손상을 유발할 수 있습니다. 역사적으로 스케일링 된 물리적 모델은 이러한 동작을 연구하기 위해 수력 학 실험실에서 구성되었지만 비용이 많이 들고 시간이 많이 걸리며 스케일링 효과와 관련된 많은 어려움이 있습니다. 오늘날 고성능 컴퓨터와보다 효율적인 전산 유체 역학 (CFD) 코드를 사용하여 수리적 구조의 동작을 합리적인 시간과 비용으로 수치 적으로 조사 할 수 있습니다. 이 분석 기법은 대도시 지역에 주요 상수원을 제공하는 가장 큰 콘크리트 중력 댐에 호주에서 처음으로 적용 되었기 때문에 검증을 수행 할 필요가있었습니다. 이것은 그림 3과 같이 조사 프로세스에 통합되었습니다. 순서도는 간단한 2D에서 상세한 3D 방수로 모델로 어떻게 발전했는지 보여줍니다.

미 육군 공병대 [5]에서 발표 한 광범위한 데이터가 있기 때문에 검증을 위해 ogee 방수로 프로필 (그림 4 참조)이 선택되었습니다. 계산 된 결과는 조사의 각 단계에서 검토되었습니다. 게시 된 데이터에서 크게 벗어나면 프로젝트가 중단됩니다. 이것은 프로젝트가 시작되기 전에 고객과 상호 합의되었습니다.

이러한 종류의 분석의 초기 어려움 중 하나는 개방 채널 중력 흐름 문제에서 자유 표면의 정확한 계산이었습니다. 자유 표면을 추적하는 데 적응 형 메싱 및 반복 방법을 사용하는 것은 일부 유한 체적 CFD 코드에서 사용되었지만 성공은 제한적이었습니다. 본 연구에 사용 된 코드는 SOLA-VOF 방법으로 Navier-Stokes 방정식을 해결합니다. 유체 운동의 과도 동작을 해결하기 위해 유한 차분 방법이 사용되었습니다. 유체의 부피 (VOF) 함수는 자유 표면 운동을 계산하는 데 사용됩니다 [6].

분석에 대한 자세한 내용은 [7]에 설명되어 있습니다. 계산 된 파고 압력 분포, 자유 표면 프로파일 및 정상 상태에서의 배출 속도는 검증 목적으로 사용되었습니다. 다른 상류 수두 (H) 아래의 배수로 꼭대기를 따라 압력 분포가 그림 5에 나와 있습니다. 일부 압력 진동은 코드가 일반 메시와 곡선 배수로 장애물 사이의 인터페이스에서 계산을 처리하는 방식에 기인 할 수 있습니다. 훨씬 더 미세한 메쉬는 이러한 불규칙성을 부드럽게 만들었습니다. 압력 분포에 대한 교각의 영향은 3D 모델에서 올바르게 예측되었습니다 (그림 6).

계산된 자유 표면 프로파일 (그림 7)도 게시 된 데이터와 잘 일치했습니다. Savage와 Johnson [8]은 분석 기법에 대한 신뢰도를 높이는 동일한 CFD 코드를 사용하여 유사한 유효성 검사를 수행했습니다. 문제의 배수로에 대한 후속 분석은 스케일링 된 물리적 모델 테스트에서 얻은 결과와 비교할 때 상당히 좋은 결과를 제공했습니다.

Figure 7 Upper nappe profile next to pier
Figure 7 Upper nappe profile next to pier

분석에서 배수로의 기하학적 구조와 물 속성이 잘 정의되었습니다. 물은 비압축성이며 고정 된 온도에서 일정한 특성을 가지고 있다고 가정했습니다. 실제로 좋은 품질의 콘크리트 표면 마감을 얻을 수 있기 때문에 배수로 경계는 매끄럽다 고 가정했습니다. 불확실성은 메쉬 밀도와 적절한 난류 모델의 선택이라는 두 가지 소스에서 비롯됩니다. 메쉬 크기는 메모리 양과 컴퓨터의 클럭 속도에 의해 제한됩니다.

높은 레이놀즈 수의 난류 흐름은 소용돌이와 소용돌이의 형성을 포착 할 수있는 매우 미세한 메시로 계산할 수 있지만 현재 메시 밀도는 검증 및 설계 목적에 필요한 변수를 예측하기에 충분히 미세했습니다. 조사 결과는 큰 와류, k-ε 및 RNG 모델과 같은 난류 모델의 선택에 의해 크게 영향을받지 않는 것으로 나타났습니다. 분명히 벽 거칠기와 난류 모델의 도입은 방전율을 감소시킬 것입니다. 그러나 다시 분석 결과는 사용 된 메시에 거의 영향을 미치지 않음을 보여줍니다. 향후 분석은 다른 메쉬 밀도로 인한 이산화 오류를 조사 할 것입니다.

사례 3 – 안벽 건설
주요 컨테이너 항구 시설은 설계 단계에서 최소한의 수치 분석을 수행하여 약 25 년 전에 건설되었습니다. 당시에는 이러한 분석 도구를 사용하는 것이 비용 효율적이지 않은 것으로 간주되었습니다. 다수의 컨테이너 크레인이 측면을 따라 이어지는 2km 길이의 안벽을 건설하기 위해 광범위한 준설 및 매립 작업이 수행되었습니다.

시설이 완공 된 이후 일련의 콘크리트 카운터 포트 유닛으로 구성된 안벽과 후방 크레인 빔은 크레인이 할 수 있도록 후방 빔에 대한 레벨 조정 작업이 수행 될 정도로 지속적으로 이동하고 있습니다. 정상적으로 작동합니다. 그러나 영향을받는 두 구조물의 움직임을 저지하기 위해보다 영구적 인 해결책을 모색했습니다. 토양-구조 상호 작용 및 시공 시뮬레이션을 처리 할 수있는 명시 적 유한 차이 분석을 사용하여 다양한 교정 옵션의 순위를 지정했습니다.

그라우트 기둥, 타이백 앵커 및 말뚝 지지대와 같은 다양한 제안 된 개선을 분석하기 전에, 토양 및 구조적 특성과 시공 과정의 선택이 적절하도록 계산 모델을 관찰에 대해 보정해야한다고 결정했습니다. 지질 및 지질 공학 정보는 현장 및 실험실 테스트 데이터를 포함하는 현장 조사 보고서에서 평가되었습니다. 시설의 범위를 고려할 때 현장에서 만나는 특정 토양 유형에 대해 상당한 분산 테스트 데이터가 예상됩니다. 수력 모래 충전재에 대한 표준 침투 테스트 (SPT) 블로우 횟수 (N) 및 콘 침투 테스트 (CPT) 저항 (qc)에 대한 몇 가지 일반적인 기록이 그림 8과 9에 나와 있습니다.

Figure 9 CPT profiles
Figure 9 CPT profiles

이 결과로부터 평균 해수면 위와 아래에있는 모래 채우기의 강도와 강성의 대비를 관찰 할 수 있습니다. 이 현상은 배치 방법에 기인한다고 제안되었다 [9]. 또한 기초 수준에서 진동 압축 된 모래의 특성에도 변동이있었습니다. 분석을 위해 선택된 토양 특성은 테스트 데이터, 인근 사이트의 경험 및 유사한 토양 조건에 대한 발표 된 데이터를 기반으로합니다. 그것들은 표 1에 요약되어 있습니다. 일반적으로 시설의 건설 순서는 다음과 같습니다.

  1. Removal of pockets of soft marine clay by dredging
  2. Dredging of sand to the required level
  3. Vibro-compaction of the sand on which the counterfort units were to be founded
  4. Placement of gravel for the quay wall foundation.
  5. Placement of concrete counterfort units weighing 360 tonne each
  6. Placement of hydraulic sand fill behind the units
  7. Surcharging the fill just behind the capping beam
  8. Construct capping beam and place more sand fill to the finished level
  9. Additional surcharge prior to the operation of container cranes.

2D 평면 변형 모델의 수치 시뮬레이션에서 구성 순서 (그림 10)와 하중은 다음 단계에 따라 단순화 / 이상적입니다.

  1. The starting condition of the seabed consisted of the vibrocompacted sand, gravel bed, native sand, clay and fissured clay at depth. The “in-situ” stresses were also switched on in this step.
  2. Placement of counterfort unit (using equivalent linear elastic beam elements) with a vertical force applied through the centre of gravity of the unit to represent the buoyant self-weight.
  3. Sequentially placing hydraulic sand fill behind the unit to the level prior to surcharging.
  4. Apply an equivalent trapezoidal pressure to represent the surcharge.
  5. Placement of capping beam and the sand fill to the required level.
  6. Apply additional surcharge.
  7. Application of repeated loads from the crane seaward and landward legs.

분석에서는 침수 된 물질과 평균 해수면 위에있는 물질을 나타 내기 위해 적절한 밀도를 사용했습니다. 안벽의 장기적인 움직임이 중요했기 때문에 배수 된 토양 매개 변수가 사용되었습니다. 토양은 분석에서 Mohr-Coulomb 실패 기준을 따르는 것으로 가정되었습니다. 단순한 탄성-완전 소성 응력-변형 거동이 가정되었습니다. 일련의 강체 다이어그램으로 표현 된 안벽 이동의 역사는 그림 11에 나와 있습니다. 벽의 상단과 바닥에서 계산 된 수직 및 수평 이동은 그림 12와 13에 표시됩니다. 수치는 모니터링 된 데이터와 해당 상한 및 하한 (해당 상자에 표시됨)입니다. 측정에서 산란의 양에도 불구하고 벽 건설에 대해 계산 된 움직임은 합리적으로 잘 비교되었습니다. 조사 데이터와 예측을 일치시키기 위해 분석에서 토양 속성을 변경하려는 시도가 없었습니다. 반복되는 크레인 하중의 래칫 효과를 관찰 할 수 있습니다. 불행히도 반복적 인 크레인 하중 하에서 벽 이동에 대한 기준이 없었기 때문에 이러한 예상 이동을 비교할 수 없었습니다. 문제의 복잡성과 고도로 가변적 인 토양 특성을 고려할 때 계산 된 결과는 매우 고무적입니다.

토양에서 플라스틱 구역의 발달도 분석에서 계산되었습니다. 벽의 발가락 아래의 토양이 여러 번 과도하게 압박을받는 것으로 밝혀졌습니다. 접촉 압력은 경사 하중으로 인한 베어링 고장에 대한 안전 지표 (FOS)를 결정하는 데 사용되었습니다. 지지력은 계산 방법에 의해 크게 영향을 받았다고보고되었습니다 [10]. 원래의 기초 디자인은 덴마크 코드 [11]를 기반으로했기 때문에이 경우 일관성을 위해 사용되었습니다. 편심의 함수로서 FOS의 발전과 수평 대 수직 추력 (H / V)의 비율이 각각 그림 14와 15에 나와 있습니다.

그림은 벽이 추가 요금과 반복적 인 적재 단계 동안 국부적 인 베어링 고장에 가까웠음을 보여줍니다. 크레인 하중 하에서 FOS의 명백한 증가는 벽에 대한 수직 하중이 증가하는 반면 유지된 토양의 수평 압력이 다소 일정하게 유지됨에 따라 편심이 감소했기 때문입니다.

끝 맺는 말
세 가지 매우 다른 실제 응용 프로그램의 유효성 검사 프로세스가 설명되었습니다. 각 사례의 주요 특징과 결과는 표 2에 요약되어 있습니다. 재료 및 하중 불확도 및 예상 결과가 강조 표시됩니다. 건설 품질은 구조의 성능에 상당한 영향을 미치는 것으로 나타났습니다.

이는 분석가가 프로젝트의 설계 단계에서 정량화하고 정확하게 분석하지 못할 수도 있습니다. 구조가 완료된 직후 모니터링의 중요성을 간과해서는 안됩니다. 이것은 미래의 역 분석을위한 유용한 자료가 될 것입니다. 수치 도구가 이러한 복잡한 문제를 분석 할 수 있다는 사실에도 불구하고 분석가는 어떤 매개 변수가 중요하거나 중요하지 않은지 식별 할 준비가되어 있어야합니다.

익숙하지 않은 문제를 분석 할 때 유효성 검사 프로세스를 점진적으로 수행해야합니다. 아마도 검증 방법을 찾는 핵심은 수치 분석 도구를 사용하지 않고 솔루션에 도달 할 수있는 다른 방법이 있는지 묻는 것입니다. 많은 경우 이러한 솔루션은 광범위한 문헌 검색 후에 존재합니다. 그러나 다른 경우에는 실험실 테스트와 현장 관찰이 유일한 대안이 될 것입니다.

이 연구의 초점은 3D 고체 금속 구조의 인쇄에 잉크젯 기술의 확장에 있습니다 [3, 4]. 현재 대부분의 3D 금속 인쇄 프로그램에는 금속 물체를 형성하는 레이저 [6] 또는 전자빔 [7]과 같은 외부 지향 에너지 소스를 이용한 금속 분말 소결 또는 용해를 포함합니다. 그러나, 이러한 방법은 비용 및 공정 복잡성, 예를 들어, 3D 인쇄 공정에 앞서 분말을 생성하는 시간 및 에너지 집약적 기술에 대한 필요성과 같은 단점을 갖고 있습니다.

이 기사에서는 움직이는 기판에서의 MHD (magnetohydrodynamic) Drop-on-demand 방출 및 액체 방울 증착에 기반한 3D 금속 구조의 첨가제 제조에 대한 새로운 접근 방시에 대해 설명합니다.

이 과정의 각 부분을 연구하기 위해 많은 시뮬레이션을 수행했습니다. 단순화를 위해 이 연구는 두 부분으로 나누었습니다.

첫 번째 부분에서는 MHD 분석을 사용하여 프린트 헤드 내부의 로렌츠 힘 밀도에 의해 생성 된 압력을 추정한 다음 FLOW-3D 모델의 경계 조건으로 사용합니다. 그것은 방울 분사 동력학을 연구하는 데 사용되었습니다.
두 번째 부분에서는 FLOW-3D 파라 메트릭 분석을 수행하여 이상적인 액적 증착 조건을 확인했습니다.

모델링 노력의 결과는 위 그림에 표시된 장치 설계를 가이드하는데 사용되었습니다. 코일은 분사 챔버를 둘러싸고 전기적으로 펄싱되어 액체 금속을 투과시키고, 순환 루프를 유도하는 과도 자기장을 생성합니다. 그것 내의 일시적인 전기장. 전기장은 순환 전류 밀도를 발생 시키며, 이는 일시적인 전계에 다시 커플 링되고 챔버 내에서 마젠 토 히드로 다이나믹 로렌츠 힘 밀도를 생성한다. 힘의 반경 방향 성분은 오리피스에서 금속 액체를 배출하는 역할을하는 압력을 생성합니다. 방출된 금속 액체 방울은 기판으로 이동하여 합체되고 응고되어 확장된 견고한 구조를 형성합니다. 임의 형상의 3 차원 구조는 방출하는 금속 방울의 정확한 패턴화 증착을 가능하게하는 움직이는 기판을 사용하여 층별로 인쇄 할 수 있습니다. 이 기술은 MagnadoJet라는 상품명으로 Vader Systems (www.vadersystems.com)에 의해 특허 및 상용화되었습니다.

MagnetoJet 프린팅 공정의 장점은 상대적으로 높은 증착 속도와 낮은 재료 비용으로 임의 형상의 3D 금속 구조를 인쇄하는 것입니다 [8, 9]. 또한 고유한 금속 입자 구조가 존재하기 때문에 기계적 특성이 개선 된 부품을 인쇄 할 수 있습니다.

프로토타입 디바이스 개발

Vader Systems의 3D 인쇄 시스템의 핵심 구성 요소는 두 부분의 노즐과 솔레노이드 코일로 구성된 프린트 헤드 어셈블리입니다. 액체화는 노즐의 상부에서 발생합니다. 하부에는 직경이 100μm ~ 500μm 인 서브 밀리미터 오리피스가 있습니다. 수냉식 솔레노이드 코일은 위 그림에 표시된 바와 같이 오리피스 챔버를 둘러싸고있습니다 (냉각 시스템은 도시되지 않음). 다수의 프린트 헤드 디자인의 반복적인 개발은 액체 금속 배출 거동뿐만 아니라, 액체 금속 충전 거동에 대한 사출 챔버 기하적인 효과를 분석하기 위해 연구되었습니다. 이 프로토타입 시스템은 일반적인 알루미늄 합금으로 만들어진 견고한 3D 구조를 성공적으로 인쇄했습니다 (아래 그림 참조). 액적 직경, 기하학, 토출 빈도 및 기타 매개 변수에 따라 직경이 50 μm에서 500 μm까지 다양합니다. 짧은 버스트에서 최대 5000 Hz까지 40-1000 Hz의 지속적인 방울 분사 속도가 달성되었습니다.

전산 모델

프로토 타입 디바이스 개발의 일부로서, 프로토 타입 제작에 앞서 계산 시뮬레이션을 수행하여 성능, 즉 액적 방출 동역학, 액적 – 공기 및 액적 – 기판 상호 작용에 대한 설계 개념을 선별했습니다. 분석을 단순화하기 위해 CFD 분석뿐만 아니라, 전산 전자기 (CE)를 사용하는 두 가지 상보 모델이 개발되었습니다. 첫 번째 모델에서는 2 단계 CE 및 CFD 분석을 사용하여 MHD 기반의 액적 방출 동작과 효과적인 압력 생성을 연구했습니다. 두 번째 모델에서, 열 유동성 CFD 분석은 기판상의 물방울의 패터닝, 유착 및 고형화를 연구하기 위해 사용되었습니다.

MHD 분석에 이어 등가 압력 프로파일을 첫 번째 모델에서 추출하고, FLOW-3D 모델의 입력으로 사용하여 액적 배출 및 액적 – 기판 상호 작용의 일시적인 동력학을 탐구하도록 설계되었습니다. 플로우 – 3D 시뮬레이션은 액적 분사에 대한 오리피스 내부 및 주변의 습윤 효과를 이해하기 위해 수행되었습니다. 오리피스 내부 및 외부의 유체 초기화 레벨을 변경하고 펄싱 주파수에 의해 결정된 펄스 사이의 시간 간격을 허용함으로써, 크기 및 속도를 포함하여 방출 된 액 적의 특성 차이를 확인할 수있었습니다.

Droplet 생성

MagnetoJet 인쇄 프로세스에서, 방울은 전압 펄스 매개 변수에 따라 일반적으로 1 – 10m/s 범위의 속도로 배출되고 기판에 충돌하기 전에 비행 중에 약간 냉각됩니다. 기판상의 액적들의 패터닝 및 응고를 제어하는 ​​능력은 정밀한 3D 솔리드 구조의 형성에 중요합니다. 고해상도 3D 모션베이스를 사용하여 패터닝을 위한 정확한 Droplet 배치가 이루어집니다. 그러나 낮은 다공성과 원하지 않는 레이어링 artifacts가 없는 잘 형성된 3D 구조를 만들기 위해 응고를 제어하는 ​​것은 다음과 같은 제어를 필요로하기 때문에 어려움이 있습니다.

  • 냉각시 액체 방울로부터 주변 물질로의 열 확산,
  • 토출된 액 적의 크기,
  • 액적 분사 빈도 및
  • 이미 형성된 3D 물체로부터의 열 확산.

이들 파라미터를 최적화함으로써, 인쇄 된 형상의 높은 공간 분해능을 제공하기에 충분히 작으며, 인접한 액적들 및 층들 사이의 매끄러운 유착을 촉진하기에 충분한 열 에너지를 보유 할 것입니다. 열 관리 문제에 직면하는 한 가지 방법은 가열된 기판을 융점보다 낮지만 상대적으로 가까운 온도에서 유지하는 것입니다. 이는 액체 금속방울과 그 주변 사이의 온도 구배를 감소시켜 액체 금속방울로부터의 열의 확산을 늦춤으로써 유착을 촉진시키고 고형화하여 매끄러운 입체 3D 덩어리를 형성합니다. 이 접근법의 실행 가능성을 탐구하기 위해 FLOW-3D를 사용한 파라 메트릭 CFD 분석이 수행되었습니다.

액체 금속방울 응집과 응고

우리는 액체 금속방울 분사 주파수뿐만 아니라 액체 금속방울 사이의 중심 간 간격의 함수로서 가열된 기판에서 내부 층의 금속방울 유착 및 응고를 조사했습니다. 이 분석에서 액체 알루미늄의 구형 방울은 3mm 높이에서 가열 된 스테인리스 강 기판에 충돌합니다. 액적 분리 거리 (100)로 변화 될 때 방울이 973 K의 초기 온도를 가지고, 기판이 다소 943 K.도 3의 응고 온도보다 900 K로 유지됩니다. 실선의 인쇄 중에 액적 유착 및 응고를 도시 50㎛의 간격으로 500㎛에서 400㎛까지 연속적으로 유지하고, 토출 주파수는 500Hz에서 일정하게 유지 하였습니다.

방울 분리가 250μm를 초과하면 선을 따라 입자가 있는 응고된 세그먼트가 나타납니다. 350μm 이상의 거리에서는 세그먼트가 분리되고 선이 채워지지 않은 간극이 있어 부드러운 솔리드 구조를 형성하는데 적합하지 않습니다. 낮은 온도에서 유지되는 기질에 대해서도 유사한 분석을 수행했습니다(예: 600K, 700K 등). 3D 구조물이 쿨러 기질에 인쇄될 수 있지만, 그것들은 후속적인 퇴적 금속 층들 사이에 강한 결합의 결여와 같은 바람직하지 않은 공예품을 보여주는 것이 관찰되었습니다. 이는 침전된 물방울의 열 에너지 손실률이 증가했기 때문입니다. 기판 온도의 최종 선택은 주어진 용도에 대해 물체의 허용 가능한 인쇄 품질에 따라 결정될 수 있습니다. 인쇄 중에 부품이 커짐에 따라 더 높은 열 확산에 맞춰 동적으로 조정할 수도 있습니다.

FLOW-3D 결과 검증

위 그림은 가열된 기판 상에 인쇄된 컵 구조 입니다. 인쇄 과정에서 가열된 인쇄물의 온도는 인쇄 된 부분의 순간 높이를 기준으로 실시간으로 733K (430 ° C)에서 833K (580 ° C)로 점차 증가했습니다. 이것은 물체 표면적이 증가함에 따라 국부적 인 열 확산의 증가를 극복하기 위해 행해졌습니다. 알루미늄의 높은 열전도율은 국부적 인 온도 구배에 대한 조정이 신속하게 이루어져야하기 때문에 특히 어렵습니다. 그렇지 않으면 온도가 빠르게 감소하고 층내 유착을 저하시킵니다.

결론

시뮬레이션 결과를 바탕으로, Vader System의 프로토 타입 마그네슘 유체 역학 액체 금속 Drop-on-demand 3D 프린터 프로토 타입은 임의의 형태의 3D 솔리드 알루미늄 구조를 인쇄 할 수 있었습니다. 이러한 구조물은 서브 밀리미터의 액체 금속방울을 층 단위로 패턴화하여 성공적으로 인쇄되었습니다. 시간당 540 그램 이상의 재료 증착 속도는 오직 하나의 노즐을 사용하여 달성되었습니다. 이 기술의 상업화는 잘 진행되고 있지만 처리량, 효율성, 해상도 및 재료 선택면에서 최적의 인쇄 성능을 실현하는 데는 여전히 어려움이 있습니다. 추가 모델링 작업은 인쇄 과정 중 과도 열 영향을 정량화하고, 메니스커스 동작뿐만 아니라 인쇄된 부품의 품질을 평가하는 데 초점을 맞출 것입니다.
