Abstract

Present work reports numerical understanding of interfacial dynamics during co-flow of vapor and liquid phases of water inside a typical Boiling Water Reactor (BWR), consisting of a nuclear fuel rod bundle assembly of 7 pins in a circular array. Two representative spacings between rods in a circular array are used to carry out the simulation. In literature, flow boiling in a nuclear reactor is dealt with mechanistic models or averaged equations. Hence, in the present study using the Volume of Fluid (VOF) based multiphase model, a detailed numerical understanding of breaking and making in interfaces during flow boiling in BWR is targeted. Our work will portray near realistic vapor bubble and liquid flow dynamics in rod bundle scenario. Constant wall heat flux for fuel rod and uniform velocity of the liquid at the inlet patch is applied as a boundary condition. The saturation properties of water are taken at 30 bar pressure. Flow boiling stages involving bubble nucleation, growth, merging, local dry-out, rewetting with liquid patches, and complete dry-out are illustrated. The dry-out phenomenon with no liquid presence is numerically observed with phase fraction contours at various axial cut-sections. The quantification of the liquid phase fraction at different axial planes is plotted over time, emphasizing the progressive dry-out mechanism. A comparison of liquid-vapor distribution for inner and outer rods reveals that the inner rod’s dry-out occurs sooner than that of the outer rod. The heat transfer coefficient to identify the heat dissipation capacity of each case is also reported.

현재 작업은 원형 배열에 있는 7개의 핀으로 구성된 핵연료봉 다발 어셈블리로 구성된 일반적인 끓는 물 원자로(BWR) 내부의 물의 증기 및 액체상의 동시 흐름 동안 계면 역학에 대한 수치적 이해를 보고합니다.

원형 배열의 막대 사이에 두 개의 대표적인 간격이 시뮬레이션을 수행하는 데 사용됩니다. 문헌에서 원자로의 유동 비등은 기계론적 모델 또는 평균 방정식으로 처리됩니다.

따라서 VOF(Volume of Fluid) 기반 다상 모델을 사용하는 본 연구에서는 BWR에서 유동 비등 동안 계면의 파괴 및 생성에 대한 자세한 수치적 이해를 목표로 합니다.

우리의 작업은 막대 번들 시나리오에서 거의 사실적인 증기 기포 및 액체 흐름 역학을 묘사합니다. 연료봉에 대한 일정한 벽 열유속과 입구 패치에서 액체의 균일한 속도가 경계 조건으로 적용됩니다. 물의 포화 특성은 30bar 압력에서 취합니다.

기포 핵 생성, 성장, 병합, 국소 건조, 액체 패치로 재습윤 및 완전한 건조를 포함하는 유동 비등 단계가 설명됩니다. 액체가 존재하지 않는 건조 현상은 다양한 축 단면에서 위상 분율 윤곽으로 수치적으로 관찰됩니다.

다른 축 평면에서 액상 분율의 정량화는 점진적인 건조 메커니즘을 강조하면서 시간이 지남에 따라 표시됩니다. 내부 막대와 외부 막대의 액-증기 분포를 비교하면 내부 막대의 건조가 외부 막대보다 더 빨리 발생함을 알 수 있습니다. 각 경우의 방열 용량을 식별하기 위한 열 전달 계수도 보고됩니다.

Abstract

태양열 집열기의 낮은 효율은 CCHP(Solar Combined Cooling, Heating, and Power) 사이클의 문제점 중 하나로 언급될 수 있습니다. 태양계를 개선하기 위해 나노유체와 다공성 매체가 태양열 집열기에 사용됩니다.

다공성 매질과 나노입자를 사용하는 장점 중 하나는 동일한 조건에서 더 많은 에너지를 흡수할 수 있다는 것입니다. 이 연구에서는 평균 일사량이 1b인 따뜻하고 건조한 지역의 600 m2 건물의 전기, 냉방 및 난방을 생성하기 위해 다공성 매질과 나노유체를 사용하여 태양열 냉난방 복합 발전(SCCHP) 시스템을 최적화했습니다.

본 논문에서는 침전물이 형성되지 않는 lb = 820 w/m2(이란) 정도까지 다공성 물질에서 나노유체의 최적량을 계산하였다. 이 연구에서 태양열 집열기는 구리 다공성 매체(95% 다공성)와 CuO 및 Al2O3 나노 유체로 향상되었습니다.

나노유체의 0.1%-0.6%가 작동 유체로 물에 추가되었습니다. 나노유체의 0.5%가 태양열 집열기 및 SCCHP 시스템에서 가장 높은 에너지 및 엑서지 효율 향상으로 이어지는 것으로 밝혀졌습니다.

본 연구에서 포물선형 집열기(PTC)의 최대 에너지 및 엑서지 효율은 각각 74.19% 및 32.6%입니다. 그림 1은 태양 CCHP의 주기를 정확하게 설명하기 위한 그래픽 초록으로 언급될 수 있습니다.

The low efficiency of solar collectors can be mentioned as one of the problems in solar combined cooling, heating, and power (CCHP) cycles. For improving solar systems, nanofluid and porous media are used in solar collectors. One of the advantages of using porous media and nanoparticles is to absorb more energy under the same conditions. In this research, a solar combined cooling, heating, and power (SCCHP) system has been optimized by porous media and nanofluid for generating electricity, cooling, and heating of a 600 m2 building in a warm and dry region with average solar radiation of Ib = 820 w/m2 in Iran. In this paper, the optimal amount of nanofluid in porous materials has been calculated to the extent that no sediment is formed. In this study, solar collectors were enhanced with copper porous media (95% porosity) and CuO and Al2O3 nanofluids. 0.1%–0.6% of the nanofluids were added to water as working fluids; it is found that 0.5% of the nanofluids lead to the highest energy and exergy efficiency enhancement in solar collectors and SCCHP systems. Maximum energy and exergy efficiency of parabolic thermal collector (PTC) riches in this study are 74.19% and 32.6%, respectively. Figure 1 can be mentioned as a graphical abstract for accurately describing the cycle of solar CCHP.

1. Introduction

Due to the increase in energy consumption, the use of clean energy is one of the important goals of human societies. In the last four decades, the use of cogeneration cycles has increased significantly due to high efficiency. Among clean energy, the use of solar energy has become more popular due to its greater availability [1]. Low efficiency of energy production, transmission, and distribution system makes a new system to generate simultaneously electricity, heating, and cooling as an essential solution to be widely used. The low efficiency of the electricity generation, transmission, and distribution system makes the CCHP system a basic solution to eliminate waste of energy. CCHP system consists of a prime mover (PM), a power generator, a heat recovery system (produce extra heating/cooling/power), and thermal energy storage (TES) [2]. Solar combined cooling, heating, and power (SCCHP) has been started three decades ago. SCCHP is a system that receives its propulsive force from solar energy; in this cycle, solar collectors play the role of propulsive for generating power in this system [3].

Increasing the rate of energy consumption in the whole world because of the low efficiency of energy production, transmission, and distribution system causes a new cogeneration system to generate electricity, heating, and cooling energy as an essential solution to be widely used. Building energy utilization fundamentally includes power required for lighting, home electrical appliances, warming and cooling of building inside, and boiling water. Domestic usage contributes to an average of 35% of the world’s total energy consumption [4].

Due to the availability of solar energy in all areas, solar collectors can be used to obtain the propulsive power required for the CCHP cycle. Solar energy is the main source of energy in renewable applications. For selecting a suitable area to use solar collectors, annual sunshine hours, the number of sunny days, minus temperature and frosty days, and the windy status of the region are essentially considered [5]. Iran, with an average of more than 300 sunny days, is one of the suitable countries to use solar energy. Due to the fact that most of the solar radiation is in the southern regions of Iran, also the concentration of cities is low in these areas, and transmission lines are far apart, one of the best options is to use CCHP cycles based on solar collectors [6]. One of the major problems of solar collectors is their low efficiency [7]. Low efficiency increases the area of collectors, which increases the initial cost of solar systems and of course increases the initial payback period. To increase the efficiency of solar collectors and improve their performance, porous materials and nanofluids are used to increase their workability.

There are two ways to increase the efficiency of solar collectors and mechanical and fluid improvement. In the first method, using porous materials or helical filaments inside the collector pipes causes turbulence of the flow and increases heat transfer. In the second method, using nanofluids or salt and other materials increases the heat transfer of water. The use of porous materials has grown up immensely over the past twenty years. Porous materials, especially copper porous foam, are widely used in solar collectors. Due to the high contact surface area, porous media are appropriate candidates for solar collectors [8]. A number of researchers investigated Solar System performance in accordance with energy and exergy analyses. Zhai et al. [9] reviewed the performance of a small solar-powered system in which the energy efficiency was 44.7% and the electrical efficiency was 16.9%.

Abbasi et al. [10] proposed an innovative multiobjective optimization to optimize the design of a cogeneration system. Results showed the CCHP system based on an internal diesel combustion engine was the applicable alternative at all regions with different climates. The diesel engine can supply the electrical requirement of 31.0% and heating demand of 3.8% for building.

Jiang et al. [11] combined the experiment and simulation together to analyze the performance of a cogeneration system. Moreover, some research focused on CCHP systems using solar energy. It integrated sustainable and renewable technologies in the CCHP, like PV, Stirling engine, and parabolic trough collector (PTC) [21215].

Wang et al. [16] optimized a cogeneration solar cooling system with a Rankine cycle and ejector to reach the maximum total system efficiency of 55.9%. Jing et al. analyzed a big-scale building with the SCCHP system and auxiliary heaters to produced electrical, cooling, and heating power. The maximum energy efficiency reported in their work is 46.6% [17]. Various optimization methods have been used to improve the cogeneration system, minimum system size, and performance, such as genetic algorithm [1819].

Hirasawa et al. [20] investigated the effect of using porous media to reduce thermal waste in solar systems. They used the high-porosity metal foam on top of the flat plate solar collector and observed that thermal waste decreased by 7% due to natural heat transfer. Many researchers study the efficiency improvement of the solar collector by changing the collector’s shapes or working fluids. However, the most effective method is the use of nanofluids in the solar collector as working fluid [21]. In the experimental study done by Jouybari et al. [22], the efficiency enhancement up to 8.1% was achieved by adding nanofluid in a flat plate collector. In this research, by adding porous materials to the solar collector, collector efficiency increased up to 92% in a low flow regime. Subramani et al. [23] analyzed the thermal performance of the parabolic solar collector with Al2O3 nanofluid. They conducted their experiments with Reynolds number range 2401 to 7202 and mass flow rate 0.0083 to 0.05 kg/s. The maximum efficiency improvement in this experiment was 56% at 0.05 kg/s mass flow rate.

Shojaeizadeh et al. [24] investigated the analysis of the second law of thermodynamic on the flat plate solar collector using Al2O3/water nanofluid. Their research showed that energy efficiency rose up to 1.9% and the exergy efficiency increased by a maximum of 0.72% compared to pure water. Tiwari et al. [25] researched on the thermal performance of solar flat plate collectors for working fluid water with different nanofluids. The result showed that using 1.5% (optimum) particle volume fraction of Al2O3 nanofluid as an absorbing medium causes the thermal efficiency to enhance up to 31.64%.

The effect of porous media and nanofluids on solar collectors has already been investigated in the literature but the SCCHP system with a collector embedded by both porous media and nanofluid for enhancing the ratio of nanoparticle in nanofluid for preventing sedimentation was not discussed. In this research, the amount of energy and exergy of the solar CCHP cycles with parabolic solar collectors in both base and improved modes with a porous material (copper foam with 95% porosity) and nanofluid with different ratios of nanoparticles was calculated. In the first step, it is planned to design a CCHP system based on the required load, and, in the next step, it will analyze the energy and exergy of the system in a basic and optimize mode. In the optimize mode, enhanced solar collectors with porous material and nanofluid in different ratios (0.1%–0.7%) were used to optimize the ratio of nanofluids to prevent sedimentation.

2. Cycle Description

CCHP is one of the methods to enhance energy efficiency and reduce energy loss and costs. The SCCHP system used a solar collector as a prime mover of the cogeneration system and assisted the boiler to generate vapor for the turbine. Hot water flows from the expander to the absorption chiller in summer or to the radiator or fan coil in winter. Finally, before the hot water wants to flow back to the storage tank, it flows inside a heat exchanger for generating domestic hot water [26].

For designing of solar cogeneration system and its analysis, it is necessary to calculate the electrical, heating (heating load is the load required for the production of warm water and space heating), and cooling load required for the case study considered in a residential building with an area of 600 m2 in the warm region of Iran (Zahedan). In Table 1, the average of the required loads is shown for the different months of a year (average of electrical, heating, and cooling load calculated with CARRIER software).Table 1 The average amount of electric charges, heating load, and cooling load used in the different months of the year in the city of Zahedan for a residential building with 600 m2.

According to Table 1, the maximum magnitude of heating, cooling, and electrical loads is used to calculate the cogeneration system. The maximum electric load is 96 kW, the maximum amount of heating load is 62 kW, and the maximum cooling load is 118 kW. Since the calculated loads are average, all loads increased up to 10% for the confidence coefficient. With the obtained values, the solar collector area and other cogeneration system components are calculated. The cogeneration cycle is capable of producing 105 kW electric power, 140 kW cooling capacity, and 100 kW heating power.

2.1. System Analysis Equations

An analysis is done by considering the following assumptions:(1)The system operates under steady-state conditions(2)The system is designed for the warm region of Iran (Zahedan) with average solar radiation Ib = 820 w/m2(3)The pressure drops in heat exchangers, separators, storage tanks, and pipes are ignored(4)The pressure drop is negligible in all processes and no expectable chemical reactions occurred in the processes(5)Potential, kinetic, and chemical exergy are not considered due to their insignificance(6)Pumps have been discontinued due to insignificance throughout the process(7)All components are assumed adiabatic

Schematic shape of the cogeneration cycle is shown in Figure 1 and all data are given in Table 2.

Figure 1 Schematic shape of the cogeneration cycle.Table 2 Temperature and humidity of different points of system.

Based on the first law of thermodynamic, energy analysis is based on the following steps.

First of all, the estimated solar radiation energy on collector has been calculated:where α is the heat transfer enhancement coefficient based on porous materials added to the collector’s pipes. The coefficient α is increased by the porosity percentage, the type of porous material (in this case, copper with a porosity percentage of 95), and the flow of fluid to the collector equation.

Collector efficiency is going to be calculated by the following equation [9]:

Total energy received by the collector is given by [9]

Also, the auxiliary boiler heat load is [2]

Energy consumed from vapor to expander is calculated by [2]

The power output form by the screw expander [9]:

The efficiency of the expander is 80% in this case [11].

In this step, cooling and heating loads were calculated and then, the required heating load to reach sanitary hot water will be calculated as follows:

First step: calculating the cooling load with the following equation [9]:

Second step: calculating heating loads [9]:

Then, calculating the required loud for sanitary hot water will be [9]

According to the above-mentioned equations, efficiency is [9]

In the third step, calculated exergy analysis as follows.

First, the received exergy collector from the sun is calculated [9]:

In the previous equation, f is the constant of air dilution.

The received exergy from the collector is [9]

In the case of using natural gas in an auxiliary heater, the gas exergy is calculated from the following equation [12]:

Delivering exergy from vapor to expander is calculated with the following equation [9]:

In the fourth step, the exergy in cooling and heating is calculated by the following equation:

Cooling exergy in summer is calculated [9]:

Heating exergy in winter is calculated [9]:

In the last step based on thermodynamic second law, exergy efficiency has been calculated from the following equation and the above-mentioned calculated loads [9]:

3. Porous Media

The porous medium that filled the test section is copper foam with a porosity of 95%. The foams are determined in Figure 2 and also detailed thermophysical parameters and dimensions are shown in Table 3.

Figure 2 Copper foam with a porosity of 95%.Table 3 Thermophysical parameters and dimensions of copper foam.

In solar collectors, copper porous materials are suitable for use at low temperatures and have an easier and faster manufacturing process than ceramic porous materials. Due to the high coefficient conductivity of copper, the use of copper metallic foam to increase heat transfer is certainly more efficient in solar collectors.

Porous media and nanofluid in solar collector’s pipes were simulated in FLOW-3D software using the finite-difference method [27]. Nanoparticles Al2O3 and CUO are mostly used in solar collector enhancement. In this research, different concentrations of nanofluid are added to the parabolic solar collectors with porous materials (copper foam with porosity of 95%) to achieve maximum heat transfer in the porous materials before sedimentation. After analyzing PTC pipes with the nanofluid flow in FLOW-3D software, for energy and exergy efficiency analysis, Carrier software results were used as EES software input. Simulation PTC with porous media inside collector pipe and nanofluids sedimentation is shown in Figure 3.

Figure 3 Simulation PTC pipes enhanced with copper foam and nanoparticles in FLOW-3D software.

3.1. Nano Fluid

In this research, copper and silver nanofluids (Al2O3, CuO) have been added with percentages of 0.1%–0.7% as the working fluids. The nanoparticle properties are given in Table 4. Also, system constant parameters are presented in Table 4, which are available as default input in the EES software.Table 4 Properties of the nanoparticles [9].

System constant parameters for input in the software are shown in Table 5.Table 5 System constant parameters.

The thermal properties of the nanofluid can be obtained from equations (18)–(21). The basic fluid properties are indicated by the index (bf) and the properties of the nanoparticle silver with the index (np).

The density of the mixture is shown in the following equation [28]:where ρ is density and ϕ is the nanoparticles volume fraction.

The specific heat capacity is calculated from the following equation [29]:

The thermal conductivity of the nanofluid is calculated from the following equation [29]:

The parameter β is the ratio of the nanolayer thickness to the original particle radius and, usually, this parameter is taken equal to 0.1 for the calculated thermal conductivity of the nanofluids.

The mixture viscosity is calculated as follows [30]:

In all equations, instead of water properties, working fluids with nanofluid are used. All of the above equations and parameters are entered in the EES software for calculating the energy and exergy of solar collectors and the SCCHP cycle. All calculation repeats for both nanofluids with different concentrations of nanofluid in the solar collector’s pipe.

4. Results and Discussion

In the present study, relations were written according to Wang et al. [16] and the system analysis was performed to ensure the correctness of the code. The energy and exergy charts are plotted based on the main values of the paper and are shown in Figures 4 and 5. The error rate in this simulation is 1.07%.

Figure 5 Verification charts of exergy analysis results.

We may also investigate the application of machine learning paradigms [3141] and various hybrid, advanced optimization approaches that are enhanced in terms of exploration and intensification [4255], and intelligent model studies [5661] as well, for example, methods such as particle swarm optimizer (PSO) [6062], differential search (DS) [63], ant colony optimizer (ACO) [616465], Harris hawks optimizer (HHO) [66], grey wolf optimizer (GWO) [5367], differential evolution (DE) [6869], and other fusion and boosted systems [4146485054557071].

At the first step, the collector is modified with porous copper foam material. 14 cases have been considered for the analysis of the SCCHP system (Table 6). It should be noted that the adding of porous media causes an additional pressure drop inside the collector [922263072]. All fourteen cases use copper foam with a porosity of 95 percent. To simulate the effect of porous materials and nanofluids, the first solar PTC pipes have been simulated in the FLOW-3D software and then porous media (copper foam with porosity of 95%) and fluid flow with nanoparticles (AL2O3 and CUO) are generated in the software. After analyzing PTC pipes in FLOW-3D software, for analyzing energy and exergy efficiency, software outputs were used as EES software input for optimization ratio of sedimentation and calculating energy and exergy analyses.Table 6 Collectors with different percentages of nanofluids and porous media.

In this research, an enhanced solar collector with both porous media and Nanofluid is investigated. In the present study, 0.1–0.5% CuO and Al2O3 concentration were added to the collector fully filled by porous media to achieve maximum energy and exergy efficiencies of solar CCHP systems. All steps of the investigation are shown in Table 6.

Energy and exergy analyses of parabolic solar collectors and SCCHP systems are shown in Figures 6 and 7.

Figure 6 Energy and exergy efficiencies of the PTC with porous media and nanofluid.

Figure 7 Energy and exergy efficiency of the SCCHP.

Results show that the highest energy and exergy efficiencies are 74.19% and 32.6%, respectively, that is achieved in Step 12 (parabolic collectors with filled porous media and 0.5% Al2O3). In the second step, the maximum energy efficiency of SCCHP systems with fourteen steps of simulation are shown in Figure 7.

In the second step, where 0.1, −0.6% of the nanofluids were added, it is found that 0.5% leads to the highest energy and exergy efficiency enhancement in solar collectors and SCCHP systems. Using concentrations more than 0.5% leads to sediment in the solar collector’s pipe and a decrease of porosity in the pipe [73]. According to Figure 7, maximum energy and exergy efficiencies of SCCHP are achieved in Step 12. In this step energy efficiency is 54.49% and exergy efficiency is 18.29%. In steps 13 and 14, with increasing concentration of CUO and Al2O3 nanofluid solution in porous materials, decreasing of energy and exergy efficiency of PTC and SCCHP system at the same time happened. This decrease in efficiency is due to the formation of sediment in the porous material. Calculations and simulations have shown that porous materials more than 0.5% nanofluids inside the collector pipe cause sediment and disturb the porosity of porous materials and pressure drop and reduce the coefficient of performance of the cogeneration system. Most experience showed that CUO and AL2O3 nanofluids with less than 0.6% percent solution are used in the investigation on the solar collectors at low temperatures and discharges [74]. One of the important points of this research is that the best ratio of nanofluids in the solar collector with a low temperature is 0.5% (AL2O3 and CUO); with this replacement, the cost of solar collectors and SCCHP cycle is reduced.

5. Conclusion and Future Directions

In the present study, ways for increasing the efficiency of solar collectors in order to enhance the efficiency of the SCCHP cycle are examined. The research is aimed at adding both porous materials and nanofluids for estimating the best ratio of nanofluid for enhanced solar collector and protecting sedimentation in porous media. By adding porous materials (copper foam with porosity of 95%) and 0.5% nanofluids together, high efficiency in solar parabolic collectors can be achieved. The novelty in this research is the addition of both nanofluids and porous materials and calculating the best ratio for preventing sedimentation and pressure drop in solar collector’s pipe. In this study, it was observed that, by adding 0.5% of AL2O3 nanofluid in working fluids, the energy efficiency of PTC rises to 74.19% and exergy efficiency is grown up to 32.6%. In SCCHP cycle, energy efficiency is 54.49% and exergy efficiency is 18.29%.

In this research, parabolic solar collectors fully filled by porous media (copper foam with a porosity of 95) are investigated. In the next step, parabolic solar collectors in the SCCHP cycle were simultaneously filled by porous media and different percentages of Al2O3 and CuO nanofluid. At this step, values of 0.1% to 0.6% of each nanofluid were added to the working fluid, and the efficiency of the energy and exergy of the collectors and the SCCHP cycle were determined. In this case, nanofluid and the porous media were used together in the solar collector and maximum efficiency achieved. 0.5% of both nanofluids were used to achieve the biggest efficiency enhancement.

In the present study, as expected, the highest efficiency is for the parabolic solar collector fully filled by porous material (copper foam with a porosity of 95%) and 0.5% Al2O3. Results of the present study are as follows:(1)The average enhancement of collectors’ efficiency using porous media and nanofluids is 28%.(2)Solutions with 0.1 to 0.5% of nanofluids (CuO and Al2O3) are used to prevent collectors from sediment occurrence in porous media.(3)Collector of solar cogeneration cycles that is enhanced by both porous media and nanofluid has higher efficiency, and the stability of output temperature is more as well.(4)By using 0.6% of the nanofluids in the enhanced parabolic solar collectors with copper porous materials, sedimentation occurs and makes a high-pressure drop in the solar collector’s pipe which causes decrease in energy efficiency.(5)Average enhancement of SCCHP cycle efficiency is enhanced by both porous media and nanofluid 13%.

Abstract

The low efficiency of Collectors that absorb energy can be mentioned as one of the drawbacks in solar cogeneration cycles. In the present study, solar systems have been improved by adding porous media and Nanofluid to collectors. One advantage of using porous media and nanomaterials is to absorb more energy while the surface area is reduced. In this study, first, solar collectors are enhanced using 90% porosity copper in solar combined cooling, heating and power systems (SCCHP). Second, different percentages of CuO and Al2O3 nano-fluids are added to a flat plate and parabolic collectors to enhance thermal properties. Simulations are performed in different modes (simple parabolic collectors, simple flat plate collectors, improved flat plate collectors, parabolic collectors with porous media, and flat plate and parabolic collectors with different density of CuO and Al2O3 nanofluids). A case study is investigated for warm and dry regions with mean solar radiation Ib = 820 w / m2 in Iran. The maximum energy and exergy efficiencies are 60.12% and 18.84%, respectively, that is related to enhanced parabolic solar collectors with porous media and nanofluids. Adding porous media and nano-fluids increases an average 14.4% collector energy efficiency and 8.08% collector exergy efficiency.

Abstract

17-4 PH (precipitation hardening) stainless steel is commonly used for the fabrication of complicated molds with conformal cooling channels using laser powder bed fusion process (L-PBF). However, their microstructure in the as-printed condition varies notably with the chemical composition of the feedstock powder, resulting in different age-hardening behavior. In the present investigation, 17-4 PH stainless steel components were fabricated by L-PBF from two different feedstock powders, and subsequently subjected to different combinations of post-process heat treatments. It was observed that the microstructure in as-printed conditions could be almost fully martensitic or ferritic, depending on the ratio of Creq/Nieq of the feedstock powder. Aging treatment at 480 °C improved the yield and ultimate tensile strengths of the as-printed components. However, specimens with martensitic structures exhibited accelerated age-hardening response compared with the ferritic specimens due to the higher lattice distortion and dislocation accumulation, resulting in the “dislocation pipe diffusion mechanism”. It was also found that the martensitic structures were highly susceptible to the formation of reverted austenite during direct aging treatment, where 19.5% of austenite phase appeared in the microstructure after 15 h of direct aging. Higher fractions of reverted austenite activates the transformation induced plasticity and improves the ductility of heat treated specimens. The results of the present study can be used to tailor the microstructure of the L-PBF printed 17-4 PH stainless steel by post-process heat treatments to achieve a good combination of mechanical properties.

17-4 PH(석출 경화) 스테인리스강은 레이저 분말 베드 융합 공정(L-PBF)을 사용하여 등각 냉각 채널이 있는 복잡한 금형 제작에 일반적으로 사용됩니다. 그러나 인쇄된 상태의 미세 구조는 공급원료 분말의 화학적 조성에 따라 크게 달라지므로 시효 경화 거동이 다릅니다.

현재 조사에서 17-4 PH 스테인리스강 구성요소는 L-PBF에 의해 두 가지 다른 공급원료 분말로 제조되었으며, 이후에 다양한 조합의 후처리 열처리를 거쳤습니다. 인쇄된 상태의 미세구조는 공급원료 분말의 Creq/Nieq 비율에 따라 거의 완전히 마르텐사이트 또는 페라이트인 것으로 관찰되었습니다.

480 °C에서 노화 처리는 인쇄된 구성 요소의 수율과 극한 인장 강도를 개선했습니다. 그러나 마텐자이트 구조의 시편은 격자 변형 및 전위 축적이 높아 페라이트 시편에 비해 시효 경화 반응이 가속화되어 “전위 파이프 확산 메커니즘”이 발생합니다.

또한 마르텐사이트 구조는 직접 시효 처리 중에 복귀된 오스테나이트의 형성에 매우 민감한 것으로 밝혀졌으며, 여기서 15시간의 직접 시효 후 미세 조직에 19.5%의 오스테나이트 상이 나타났습니다.

복귀된 오스테나이트의 비율이 높을수록 변형 유도 가소성이 활성화되고 열처리된 시편의 연성이 향상됩니다. 본 연구의 결과는 기계적 특성의 우수한 조합을 달성하기 위해 후처리 열처리를 통해 L-PBF로 인쇄된 17-4 PH 스테인리스강의 미세 구조를 조정하는 데 사용할 수 있습니다.

Abstract

Electromagnetic metal casting (EMC) is a casting technique that uses electromagnetic energy to heat metal powders. It is a faster, cleaner, and less time-consuming operation. Solid metals create issues in electromagnetics since they reflect the electromagnetic radiation rather than consume it—electromagnetic energy processing results in sounded pieces with higher-ranking material properties and a more excellent microstructure solution. For the physical production of the electromagnetic casting process, knowledge of electromagnetic material interaction is critical. Even where the heated material is an excellent electromagnetic absorber, the total heating quality is sometimes insufficient. Numerical modelling works on finding the proper coupled effects between properties to bring out the most effective operation. The main parameters influencing the quality of output of the EMC process are: power dissipated per unit volume into the material, penetration depth of electromagnetics, complex magnetic permeability and complex dielectric permittivity. The contact mechanism and interference pattern also, in turn, determines the quality of the process. Only a few parameters, such as the environment’s temperature, the interference pattern, and the rate of metal solidification, can be controlled by AI models. Neural networks are used to achieve exact outcomes by stimulating the neurons in the human brain. Additive manufacturing (AM) is used to design mold and cores for metal casting. The models outperformed the traditional DFA optimization approach, which is susceptible to local minima. The system works only offline, so real-time analysis and corrections are not yet possible.

Korea Abstract

전자기 금속 주조 (EMC)는 전자기 에너지를 사용하여 금속 분말을 가열하는 주조 기술입니다. 더 빠르고 깨끗하며 시간이 덜 소요되는 작업입니다.

고체 금속은 전자기 복사를 소비하는 대신 반사하기 때문에 전자기학에서 문제를 일으킵니다. 전자기 에너지 처리는 더 높은 등급의 재료 특성과 더 우수한 미세 구조 솔루션을 가진 사운드 조각을 만듭니다.

전자기 주조 공정의 물리적 생산을 위해서는 전자기 물질 상호 작용에 대한 지식이 중요합니다. 가열된 물질이 우수한 전자기 흡수재인 경우에도 전체 가열 품질이 때때로 불충분합니다. 수치 모델링은 가장 효과적인 작업을 이끌어 내기 위해 속성 간의 적절한 결합 효과를 찾는데 사용됩니다.

EMC 공정의 출력 품질에 영향을 미치는 주요 매개 변수는 단위 부피당 재료로 분산되는 전력, 전자기의 침투 깊이, 복합 자기 투과성 및 복합 유전율입니다. 접촉 메커니즘과 간섭 패턴 또한 공정의 품질을 결정합니다. 환경 온도, 간섭 패턴 및 금속 응고 속도와 같은 몇 가지 매개 변수 만 AI 모델로 제어 할 수 있습니다.

신경망은 인간 뇌의 뉴런을 자극하여 정확한 결과를 얻기 위해 사용됩니다. 적층 제조 (AM)는 금속 주조용 몰드 및 코어를 설계하는 데 사용됩니다. 모델은 로컬 최소값에 영향을 받기 쉬운 기존 DFA 최적화 접근 방식을 능가했습니다. 이 시스템은 오프라인에서만 작동하므로 실시간 분석 및 수정은 아직 불가능합니다.

ABSTRACT

Surface roughness of laser powder bed fusion (L-PBF) printed overhang regions is a major contributor to deteriorated shape accuracy/surface quality. This study investigates the mechanisms behind the evolution of surface roughness (Ra) in overhang regions. The evolution of surface morphology is the result of a combination of border track contour, powder adhesion, warp deformation, and dross formation, which is strongly related to the overhang angle (θ). When 0° ≤ θ ≤ 15°, the overhang angle does not affect Ra significantly since only a small area of the melt pool boundaries contacts the powder bed resulting in slight powder adhesion. When 15° < θ ≤ 50°, powder adhesion is enhanced by the melt pool sinking and the increased contact area between the melt pool boundary and powder bed. When θ > 50°, large waviness of the overhang contour, adhesion of powder clusters, severe warp deformation and dross formation increase Ra sharply.

레이저 파우더 베드 퓨전 (L-PBF) 프린팅 오버행 영역의 표면 거칠기는 형상 정확도 / 표면 품질 저하의 주요 원인입니다. 이 연구 는 오버행 영역에서 표면 거칠기 (Ra ) 의 진화 뒤에 있는 메커니즘을 조사합니다 . 표면 형태의 진화는 오버행 각도 ( θ ) 와 밀접한 관련이있는 경계 트랙 윤곽, 분말 접착, 뒤틀림 변형 및 드로스 형성의 조합의 결과입니다 . 0° ≤  θ  ≤ 15° 인 경우 , 용융풀 경계의 작은 영역 만 분말 베드와 접촉하여 약간의 분말 접착이 발생하기 때문에 오버행 각도가 R a에 큰 영향을 주지 않습니다 . 15° < θ 일 때  ≤ 50°, 용융 풀 싱킹 및 용융 풀 경계와 분말 베드 사이의 증가된 접촉 면적으로 분말 접착력이 향상됩니다. θ  > 50° 일 때 오버행 윤곽의 큰 파형, 분말 클러스터의 접착, 심한 휨 변형 및 드 로스 형성이 Ra 급격히 증가 합니다.

1. Introduction

레이저 분말 베드 융합 (L-PBF)은 첨단 적층 제조 (AM) 기술로, 집중된 레이저 빔을 사용하여 금속 분말을 선택적으로 융합하여 슬라이스 된 3D 컴퓨터 지원에 따라 층별로 3 차원 (3D) 금속 부품을 구축합니다. 설계 (CAD) 모델 (Chatham, Long 및 Williams 2019 ; Tan, Zhu 및 Zhou 2020 ). 재료가 인쇄 층 아래에 ​​존재하는지 여부에 따라 인쇄 영역은 각각 솔리드 영역 또는 돌출 영역으로 분류 될 수 있습니다. 따라서 오버행 영역은 고체 기판이 아니라 분말 베드 바로 위에 건설되는 특수 구조입니다 (Patterson, Messimer 및 Farrington 2017). 오버행 영역은지지 구조를 포함하거나 포함하지 않고 구축 할 수 있으며, 지지대가있는 돌출 영역의 L-PBF는 지지체가 더 낮은 밀도로 구축된다는 점을 제외 하고 (Wang and Chou 2018 ) 고체 기판의 공정과 유사합니다 (따라서 기계적 강도가 낮기 때문에 L-PBF 공정 후 기계적으로 쉽게 제거 할 수 있습니다. 따라서지지 구조로 인쇄 된 오버행 영역은 L-PBF 공정 후 지지물 제거, 연삭 및 연마와 같은 추가 후 처리 단계가 필요합니다.

수평 내부 채널의 제작과 같은 일부 특정 경우에는 공정 후 지지대를 제거하기가 어려우므로 채널 상단 절반의 돌출부 영역을 지지대없이 건설해야합니다 (Hopkinson and Dickens 2000 ). 수평 내부 채널에 사용할 수없는지지 구조 외에도 내부 표면, 특히 등각 냉각 채널 (Feng, Kamat 및 Pei 2021 ) 에서 발생하는 복잡한 3D 채널 네트워크의 경우 표면 마감 프로세스를 구현하는 것도 어렵습니다 . 결과적으로 오버행 영역은 (i) 잔류 응력에 의한 변형, (ii) 계단 효과 (Kuo et al. 2020 ; Li et al. 2020 )로 인해 설계된 모양에서 벗어날 수 있습니다 .) 및 (iii) 원하지 않는 분말 소결로 인한 향상된 표면 거칠기; 여기서, 앞의 두 요소는 일반적으로 mm 길이 스케일에서 ‘매크로’편차로 분류되고 후자는 일반적으로 µm 길이 스케일에서 ‘마이크로’편차로 인식됩니다.

열 응력에 의한 변형은 오버행 영역에서 발생하는 중요한 문제입니다 (Patterson, Messimer 및 Farrington 2017 ). 국부적 인 용융 / 냉각은 용융 풀 내부 및 주변에서 큰 온도 구배를 유도하여 응고 된 층에 집중적 인 열 응력을 유발합니다. 열 응력에 의한 뒤틀림은 고체 영역을 현저하게 변형하지 않습니다. 이러한 영역은 아래의 여러 레이어에 의해 제한되기 때문입니다. 반면에 오버행 영역은 구속되지 않고 공정 중 응력 완화로 인해 상당한 변형이 발생합니다 (Kamat 및 Pei 2019 ). 더욱이 용융 깊이는 레이어 두께보다 큽니다 (이전 레이어도 재용 해되어 빌드 된 레이어간에 충분한 결합을 보장하기 때문입니다 [Yadroitsev et al. 2013 ; Kamath et al.2014 ]),응고 된 두께가 설계된 두께보다 크기 때문에형태 편차 (예 : 드 로스 [Charles et al. 2020 ; Feng et al. 2020 ])가 발생합니다. 마이크로 스케일에서 인쇄 된 표면 (R a 및 S a ∼ 10 μm)은 기계적으로 가공 된 표면보다 거칠다 (Duval-Chaneac et al. 2018 ; Wen et al. 2018 ). 이 문제는고형화 된 용융 풀의 가장자리에 부착 된 용융되지 않은 분말의 결과로 표면 거칠기 (R a )가 일반적으로 약 20 μm인 오버행 영역에서 특히 심각합니다 (Mazur et al. 2016 ; Pakkanen et al. 2016 ).

오버행 각도 ( θ , 빌드 방향과 관련하여 측정)는 오버행 영역의 뒤틀림 편향과 표면 거칠기에 영향을 미치는 중요한 매개 변수입니다 (Kamat and Pei 2019 ; Mingear et al. 2019 ). θ ∼ 45 ° 의 오버행 각도 는 일반적으로지지 구조없이 오버행 영역을 인쇄 할 수있는 임계 값으로 합의됩니다 (Pakkanen et al. 2016 ; Kadirgama et al. 2018 ). θ 일 때이 임계 값보다 크면 오버행 영역을 허용 가능한 표면 품질로 인쇄 할 수 없습니다. 오버행 각도 외에도 레이저 매개 변수 (레이저 에너지 밀도와 관련된)는 용융 풀의 모양 / 크기 및 용융 풀 역학에 영향을줌으로써 오버행 영역의 표면 거칠기에 영향을줍니다 (Wang et al. 2013 ; Mingear et al . 2019 ).

용융 풀 역학은 고체 (Shrestha 및 Chou 2018 ) 및 오버행 (Le et al. 2020 ) 영역 모두에서 수행되는 L-PBF 공정을 포함한 레이저 재료 가공의 일반적인 물리적 현상입니다 . 용융 풀 모양, 크기 및 냉각 속도는 잔류 응력으로 인한 변형과 ​​표면 거칠기에 모두 영향을 미치므로 처리 매개 변수와 표면 형태 / 품질 사이의 다리 역할을하며 용융 풀을 이해하기 위해 수치 시뮬레이션을 사용하여 추가 조사를 수행 할 수 있습니다. 거동과 표면 거칠기에 미치는 영향. 현재까지 고체 영역의 L-PBF 동안 용융 풀 동작을 시뮬레이션하기 위해 여러 연구가 수행되었습니다. 유한 요소 방법 (FEM)과 같은 시뮬레이션 기술 (Roberts et al. 2009 ; Du et al.2019 ), 유한 차분 법 (FDM) (Wu et al. 2018 ), 전산 유체 역학 (CFD) (Lee and Zhang 2016 ), 임의의 Lagrangian-Eulerian 방법 (ALE) (Khairallah and Anderson 2014 )을 사용하여 증발 반동 압력 (Hu et al. 2018 ) 및 Marangoni 대류 (Zhang et al. 2018 ) 현상을포함하는 열 전달 (온도 장) 및 물질 전달 (용융 흐름) 프로세스. 또한 이산 요소법 (DEM)을 사용하여 무작위 분산 분말 베드를 생성했습니다 (Lee and Zhang 2016 ; Wu et al. 2018 ). 이 모델은 분말 규모의 L-PBF 공정을 시뮬레이션했습니다 (Khairallah et al. 2016) 메조 스케일 (Khairallah 및 Anderson 2014 ), 단일 트랙 (Leitz et al. 2017 )에서 다중 트랙 (Foroozmehr et al. 2016 ) 및 다중 레이어 (Huang, Khamesee 및 Toyserkani 2019 )로.

그러나 결과적인 표면 거칠기를 결정하는 오버행 영역의 용융 풀 역학은 문헌에서 거의 관심을받지 못했습니다. 솔리드 영역의 L-PBF에 대한 기존 시뮬레이션 모델이 어느 정도 참조가 될 수 있지만 오버행 영역과 솔리드 영역 간의 용융 풀 역학에는 상당한 차이가 있습니다. 오버행 영역에서 용융 금속은 분말 입자 사이의 틈새로 아래로 흘러 용융 풀이 다공성 분말 베드가 제공하는 약한 지지체 아래로 가라 앉습니다. 이것은 중력과 표면 장력의 영향이 용융 풀의 결과적인 모양 / 크기를 결정하는 데 중요하며, 결과적으로 오버행 영역의 마이크로 스케일 형태의 진화에 중요합니다. 또한 분말 입자 사이의 공극, 열 조건 (예 : 에너지 흡수,2019 ; Karimi et al. 2020 ; 노래와 영 2020 ). 표면 거칠기는 (마이크로) 형상 편차를 증가시킬뿐만 아니라 주기적 하중 동안 미세 균열의 시작 지점 역할을함으로써 기계적 강도를 저하시킵니다 (Günther et al. 2018 ). 오버행 영역의 높은 표면 거칠기는 (마이크로) 정확도 / 품질에 대한 엄격한 요구 사항이있는 부품 제조에서 L-PBF의 적용을 제한합니다.

본 연구는 실험 및 시뮬레이션 연구를 사용하여 오버행 영역 (지지물없이 제작)의 미세 형상 편차 형성 메커니즘과 표면 거칠기의 기원을 체계적이고 포괄적으로 조사합니다. 결합 된 DEM-CFD 시뮬레이션 모델은 경계 트랙 윤곽, 분말 접착 및 뒤틀림 변형의 효과를 고려하여 오버행 영역의 용융 풀 역학과 표면 형태의 형성 메커니즘을 나타 내기 위해 개발되었습니다. 표면 거칠기 R의 시뮬레이션 및 단일 요인 L-PBF 인쇄 실험을 사용하여 오버행 각도의 함수로 연구됩니다. 용융 풀의 침몰과 관련된 오버행 영역에서 분말 접착의 세 가지 메커니즘이 식별되고 자세히 설명됩니다. 마지막으로, 인쇄 된 오버행 영역에서 높은 표면 거칠기 문제를 완화 할 수 있는 잠재적 솔루션에 대해 간략하게 설명합니다.

Abstract

Ti-6Al-4V alloys mad by additive manufacturing (AM) with slower cooling rate (e. g., direct energy deposition (DED)) generally have the problem of severe coarsening of α phase. This study presents a method to refine the microstructure of the primary β phase formed during the solid–liquid transformation, microstructures formed during the β → α + β transformation, and recrystallized microstructures formed during the repeated heating cycles encountered in AM processes. This is accomplished by the in situ precipitation of nano-sized dispersed high-melting-point yttria Y2O3 particles. The addition of micron-sized particles with high melting points can refine primary crystallized grains and transformed grains corresponding to the secondary phase in Ti-6Al-4V alloys. In addition, they can effectively inhibit the recrystallization and growth of prior-deposited metal grains. The microstructural and tensile properties of laser additive manufactured with filler wire Ti-6Al-4V components with different amounts of Y2O3 (0, 0.12, and 0.22 wt%) were investigated. The refining effect of Y2O3 was significant and the tensile strength of Ti-6Al-4V containing 0.22 wt% Y2O3 in the longitudinal and transverse directions was greater than that of Ti-6Al-4V by approximately 12% and 9%, respectively. Concurrently, there was no loss in the elongation of the material in either direction. The strategy of using micron-sized refractory particles to control phase transformation (primary crystallization, solid-state phase transformation, and recrystallization) can be applied to the AM of different metals, in which microstructures are susceptible to coarsening.

Korea Abstract

더 느린 냉각 속도 (예를 들어, 직접 에너지 증착 (DED))를 가진 적층 제조 (AM)에 의해 미친 Ti-6Al-4V 합금은 일반적으로 α상의 심한 조 대화 문제가 있습니다. 이 연구는 고체-액체 변환 중에 형성된 1 차 β상의 미세 구조, β → α + β 변환 중에 형성된 미세 구조, AM 공정에서 발생하는 반복되는 가열주기 동안 형성된 재결정 화 된 미세 구조를 정제하는 방법을 제시합니다.

이는 나노 크기의 분산 된 고 융점이 트리아 Y2O3 입자의 현장 침전에 의해 달성됩니다. 녹는 점이 높은 미크론 크기의 입자를 추가하면 Ti-6Al-4V 합금의 2 차 상에 해당하는 1 차 결정 입자 및 변형 된 입자를 정제 할 수 있습니다. 또한 사전에 증착 된 금속 입자의 재결정 화 및 성장을 효과적으로 억제 할 수 있습니다.

Y2O3 (0, 0.12, 0.22 wt %)의 양이 다른 필러 와이어 Ti-6Al-4V 성분으로 제조 된 레이저 첨가제의 미세 구조 및 인장 특성을 조사했습니다. Y2O3의 정제 효과는 유의미했으며, Y2O3 0.22 wt %를 세로 및 가로 방향으로 포함하는 Ti-6Al-4V의 인장 강도는 Ti-6Al-4V보다 각각 약 12 ​​% 및 9 % 더 컸습니다.

동시에 어느 방향으로도 재료의 연신율에 손실이 없었습니다. 미크론 크기의 내화 입자를 사용하여 상 변환 (1 차 결정화, 고체 상 변환 및 재결정 화)을 제어하는 ​​전략은 미세 구조가 거칠어지기 쉬운 다양한 금속의 AM에 적용될 수 있습니다.

Abstract

Ti-6Al-4V alloys mad by additive manufacturing (AM) with slower cooling rate (e. g., direct energy deposition (DED)) generally have the problem of severe coarsening of α phase. This study presents a method to refine the microstructure of the primary β phase formed during the solid–liquid transformation, microstructures formed during the β → α + β transformation, and recrystallized microstructures formed during the repeated heating cycles encountered in AM processes. This is accomplished by the in situ precipitation of nano-sized dispersed high-melting-point yttria Y2O3 particles. The addition of micron-sized particles with high melting points can refine primary crystallized grains and transformed grains corresponding to the secondary phase in Ti-6Al-4V alloys. In addition, they can effectively inhibit the recrystallization and growth of prior-deposited metal grains. The microstructural and tensile properties of laser additive manufactured with filler wire Ti-6Al-4V components with different amounts of Y2O3 (0, 0.12, and 0.22 wt%) were investigated. The refining effect of Y2O3 was significant and the tensile strength of Ti-6Al-4V containing 0.22 wt% Y2O3 in the longitudinal and transverse directions was greater than that of Ti-6Al-4V by approximately 12% and 9%, respectively. Concurrently, there was no loss in the elongation of the material in either direction. The strategy of using micron-sized refractory particles to control phase transformation (primary crystallization, solid-state phase transformation, and recrystallization) can be applied to the AM of different metals, in which microstructures are susceptible to coarsening.

냉각 속도가 느린 적층 제조(AM)에 의해 제조된 Ti-6Al-4V 합금은 일반적으로 α상(예: 직접 에너지 증착(DED)의 심각한 응고 문제를 가지고 있습니다. 이 연구는 고체-액체 변환 중에 형성된 1 차 β상의 미세 구조, β → α + β 변환 중에 형성된 미세 구조, AM 공정에서 발생하는 반복되는 가열주기 동안 형성된 재 결정화된 미세 구조를 정제하는 방법을 제시합니다.

이것은 나노 크기의 분산된 고 융점이 트리아 Y2O3 입자의 현장 침전에 의해 달성됩니다. 녹는 점이 높은 미크론 크기의 입자를 추가하면 Ti-6Al-4V 합금의 2 차 상에 해당하는 1차 결정 입자 및 변형된 입자를 정제 할 수 있습니다.

또한 사전에 증착된 금속 입자의 재 결정화 및 성장을 효과적으로 억제 할 수 있습니다. Y2O3 (0, 0.12, 0.22 wt %)의 양이 다른 필러 와이어 Ti-6Al-4V 성분으로 제조 된 레이저 첨가제의 미세 구조 및 인장 특성을 조사했습니다.

Y2O3의 정제 효과는 유의미했으며, Y2O3 0.22 wt %를 세로 및 가로 방향으로 포함하는 Ti-6Al-4V의 인장 강도는 Ti-6Al-4V보다 각각 약 12 ​​% 및 9 % 더 컸습니다. 동시에 어느 방향으로도 재료의 연신율에 손실이 없었습니다.

미크론 크기의 내화 입자를 사용하여 상 변환 (1 차 결정화, 고체 상 변환 및 재결정 화)을 제어하는 ​​전략은 미세 구조가 거칠어지기 쉬운 다양한 금속의 AM에 적용될 수 있습니다.

Abstract

Die casting process of Mg alloys for high temperature applications was studied to produce an engine oil pan. The aim of this paper is to evaluate die casting processes of the Aluminium oil pan and in parallel to apply new Mg alloy for die casting the oil pan. Temperature distributions of the die and flow pattern of the alloys in cavity were simulated to diecast a new Mg alloy by the flow simulation software. Dies have to be modified according to material characteristics because melting temperature and heat capacity are different. We changed the shape and position of runner, gate, vent hole and overflow by the simulation results. After several trial and error, oil pans of AE44 and MRI153M Mg alloys are produced successfully without defect. Sleeve filling ratio, cavity filling time and shot speed of die casting machine are important parameter to minimize the defect for die casting Magnesium alloy.

서론

크랭크케이스의 하부에 부착되는 오일팬은 오일 펌프에 의해 펌핑된 오일이 윤활작용을 마치고 다시 모이는 부품이다. 오일의 온도에 의해 가열되므로 일반적으로 사용되는 마그네슘 합금인 AZ나 AM계열의 합금은 사용이 불가하며 내열소재의 적용이 불가피하다.

현재 ADC12종 알루미늄 오일팬 둥이 적용되고 있으며, 이를 마그네슘으로 대체할 경우 밀도가 알루미늄 2.8g/cm3‘, 마그네슘 1.8g/cm3‘이므로 약 35%의 경량화가 가능하다고 단순하게 말할 수 있다.

그러나 탄성계수는 알루미늄 73GPa이 고 마그네슘 45GPa이므로 외부 하중을 지지하고 있는 부품의 경우는 단순한 재질의 변경만으로는 알루미늄과 같은 정도의 강성을 나타내지 못하므로 형상의 변경 등을 통한 설계 최적화가 요구된다.

마그네슘은 현재까지 개발된 여러 가지 구조용 합금들 중에서 최소의 밀도를 가지고 있으며 동시에 우수한 비강도 및 비탄성 계수를 가지고 있다.1.2)

그러나 이러한 우수한 특성을 가지는 마그네슘 합금은 경쟁 재료에 비해 절대 강도 및 인성이 낮으며 고온에서 인장 강도가 급격히 감소하고 내부식 성능이 떨어지는 등의 문제점이 있다. 현재까지 자동차 부품 중 마그네슘 합금은 Cylinder head cover, Steering wheel, Instrument panel, Seat frame 등 비교적 내열성이 요구되지 않는 부분에만 한정적으로 적용되고 있다.
자동차 산업에서 좀 더 많은 부품에 마그네슘 합금을 적용하기 위해서는 내열성을 향상 시키고 고온강도를 향상시키기 위한 새로운 합금의 개발이 이루어져야 한다. 최근 마그네슘 합금개발에 대한 연구동향은 비교적 저가인 원소를 값비싼 원소가 첨가된 합금계에 부분적으로 첨가하거나 대체함으로써 비슷한 내열 특성을 가지는 합금을 개발하고,34) 이를 자동차 산업이나 전자 산업의 내열 부품 적용으로 확대하기 위하여 진행되고 있다. 현재 마그네슘 내열 부품은 선진국에서 자동차 부품으로 개발되고 있으나6-8)

국내에서는 아직 자동차 부품에 폭 넓게 적용되고 있지 않다. 그러므로 국내 자동차 산업이 치열한 국제 시장에서 생존하기 위해서는 마그네슘 합금의 내열 부품 제조기술을 조기에 개발하여 선진국보다 기술적, 경제적 우위를 확보하는 것이 절실히 요구된다.

본 연구에서는 내열 마그네슘합금을 이용하여 알루미늄 오일팬을 대체할 수 있는 새로운 오일팬의 개발올 위한 적절한 다이캐스팅 공정방안을 도출하고자 한다.

결론

오일팬은 엔진 내부에서 순환되어 돌아오는 오일의 열을 외부로 발산하는 냉각기능 및 엔진으로부터 발생하는 소음이 외부로 전달되지 않도록 소음을 차단하는 역할을 수행하는 매우 중요한 부품 중의 하나이다. 본 연구에서는 현재 개발 중에 있는 새로운 내열 마그네슘 합금을 이용하여 현재 사용하고 있는 알루미늄 오일팬을 대체할 마그네슘 오일팬을 개발하고 시험 생산하였으며 다음과 같은 결론을 얻었다.

  1. 알루미늄 합금과 마그네슘 합금의 단위 부피당 열 용량은 각각 3.07x10J/m/K, 2.38x10J/m/K로서 동일 주조 조건 시 응고 속도 차이가 제품 성형에 영향을 미칠 것으로 예상되었으며, 주조해석 및 제품분석을 통해 확인하였다. 따라서 주조 조건에 가장 큰 영향을 미치는 것으로 확인된 용탕, 금형온도, 주조속도 등을 변경하여 최적 주조공정 조건을 확립하였다.
  2. 제품 및 시험편 성형에 영향을 미치는 것으로 확인된 런너의 곡률 반경을 증대시키고 게이트의 갯수 및 오버플로우 위치와 형상을 조절함으로서 제품 및 시험편의 용탕 흐름을 원활하게 조절 할 수 있었다.
  3. MRI153M 합금은 AE44 합금에 비해 응고 시작점에서 완료점까지의 응고시간이 길어 응고 완료 후, 내부 수축기포가 보다 많이 관찰되었다.
    따라서 MRI153M 합금 주조시 슬리브 충진율, 게이트 통과속도, 충진시간 등을 달리하여 최적 주조 품을 생산할 수 있었다.

CFD Stirs Up Mixing 일반

CFD (전산 유체 역학) 전문가가 필요하고 때로는 실행하는데 몇 주가 걸리는 믹싱 시뮬레이션의 시대는 오래 전입니다. 컴퓨팅 및 관련 기술의 엄청난 도약에 힘 입어 Ansys, Comsol 및 Flow Science와 같은 회사는 엔지니어의 데스크톱에 사용하기 쉬운 믹싱 시뮬레이션을 제공하고 있습니다.

“병렬화 및 고성능 컴퓨팅의 발전과 템플릿화는 비전문 화학 엔지니어에게 정확한 CFD 시뮬레이션을 제공했습니다.”라고 펜실베이니아  피츠버그에있는 Ansys Inc.의 수석 제품 마케팅 관리자인 Bill Kulp는 말합니다 .

흐름 개선을위한 실용적인 지침이 필요하십니까? 다운로드 화학 처리의 eHandbook을 지금 흐름 도전 싸우는 방법!

예를 들어, 회사는 휴스턴에있는 Nalco Champion과 함께 프로젝트를 시작했습니다. 이 프로젝트는 시뮬레이션 전문가가 아닌 화학 엔지니어에게 Ansys Fluent 및 ACT (분석 제어 기술) 템플릿 기반 시뮬레이션 앱에 대한 액세스 권한을 부여합니다. 새로운 화학 물질을위한 프로세스를 빠르고 효율적으로 확장합니다.

Giving Mixing Its Due

“화학 산업은 CFD와 같은 계산 도구를 사용하여 많은 것을 얻을 수 있지만 혼합 프로세스는 단순하다고 가정하기 때문에 간과되는 경우가 있습니다. 그러나 최신 수치 기법을 사용하여 우수한 성능을 달성하는 흥미로운 방법이 많이 있습니다.”라고 Flow Science Inc. , Santa Fe, NM의 CFD 엔지니어인 Ioannis Karampelas는 말합니다 .

이러한 많은 기술이 회사의 Flow-3D Multiphysics 모델링 소프트웨어 패키지와 전용 포스트 프로세서 시각화 도구 인 FlowSight에 포함되어 있습니다.

“모든 상업용 CFD 패키지는 어떤 형태의 시각화 도구와 번들로 제공되지만 FlowSight는 매우 강력하고 사용하기 쉽고 이해하기 쉽게 설계되었습니다. 예를 들어, 프로세스를 재 설계하려는 엔지니어는 다양한 설계 변경의 효과를 평가하기 위해 매우 직관적인 시각화 도구가 필요합니다.”라고 그는 설명합니다.

이 접근 방식은 실험 측정을 얻기 어려운 공정 (예 : 쉽게 측정 할 수없는 매개 변수 및 독성 물질의 존재로 인해 본질적으로 위험한 공정)을 더 잘 이해하고 최적화하는데 특히 효과적입니다.

동일한 접근 방식은 또한 믹서 관련 장비 공급 업체가 고객 요구에 맞게 제품을보다 정확하게 개발하고 맞춤화하는 데 도움이되었습니다. “이는 불필요한 프로토 타이핑 비용이나 잠재적 인 과도한 엔지니어링을 방지합니다. 두 가지 모두 일부 공급 업체의 문제였습니다.”라고 Karampelas는 말합니다.

CFD 기술 자체는 계속해서 발전하고 있습니다. 예를 들어, 수치 알고리즘의 관점에서 볼 때 구형 입자의 상호 작용이 열 전달을 적절하게 모델링하는 데 중요한 다양한 문제에 대해 이산 요소 모델링을 쉽게 적용 할 수있는 반면, LES 난류 모델은 난류 흐름 패턴을 정확하게 시뮬레이션하는 데 이상적입니다.

컴퓨팅 리소스에 대한 비용과 수요에도 불구하고 Karampelas는 난류 모델의 전체 제품군을 제공 할 수있는 것이 중요하다고 생각합니다. 특히 LES는 이미 대부분의 학계와 일부 산업 (예 : 전력 공학)에서 선택하는 방법이기 때문입니다. .

그럼에도 불구하고 CFD의 사용이 제한적이거나 비실용적 일 수있는 경우는 확실히 있습니다. 여기에는 나노 입자에서 벌크 유체 증발을 모델링하는 것과 같이 관심의 규모가 다른 규모에 따라 달라질 수있는 문제와 중요한 물리적 현상이 아직 알려지지 않았거나 제대로 이해되지 않았거나 아마도 매우 복잡한 문제 (예 : 모델링)가 포함됩니다. 음 펨바 효과”라고 Karampelas는 경고합니다.

반면에 더욱 강력한 하드웨어와 업데이트 된 수치 알고리즘의 출현은 CFD 소프트웨어를 사용하여 과다한 설계 및 최적화 문제를 해결하기위한 최적의 접근 방식이 될 것이라고 그는 믿습니다.

“복잡한 열교환 시스템 및 새로운 혼합 기술과 같이 점점 더 복잡한 공정을 모델링 할 수있는 능력은 가까운 장래에 가능할 수있는 일을 간단히 보여줍니다. 수치적 방법 사용의 주요 이점은 설계자가 상상력에 의해서만 제한되어 소규모 믹서에서 대규모 반응기 및 증류 컬럼에 이르기까지 다양한 화학 플랜트 공정을 최적화 할 수있는 길을 열어 준다는 것입니다. 실험적 또는 경험적 접근 방식은 항상 관련성이 있지만 CFD가 미래의 엔지니어를위한 선택 도구가 될 것이라고 확신합니다.”라고 그는 결론을 내립니다.

Impact Modeling of Thermally Sprayed Polymer Particles

Ivosevic, M., Cairncross, R. A., Knight, R., Philadelphia / USA

열 스프레이는 전통적으로 금속, 카바이드 및 세라믹 코팅을 증착하는 데 사용되어 왔지만 최근에는 HVOF (High Velocity Oxy-Fuel) 열 스프레이 공정의 높은 운동 에너지로 인해 용융 점도가 높은 폴리머의 무용제 처리도 가능하다는 사실이 밝혀졌습니다. , 유해한 휘발성 유기 용매가 필요하지 않습니다. 이 작업의 주된 목표는 지식 기반을 개발하고 HVOF 연소 스프레이 공정에 의해 분사되는 폴리머 입자의 충격 거동에 대한 질적 이해를 개선하는 것이 었습니다. 고분자 입자의 HVOF 분사 중 입자 가속, 가열 및 충격 변형의 수치 모델이 개발되었습니다. Volume-of-Fluid (VoF) 전산 유체 역학 패키지 인 Flow3D®는 입자가 강철 기판과 충돌하는 동안 유체 역학 및 열 전달을 모델링하는 데 사용되었습니다. 입자 가속 및 열 전달 모델을 사용하여 예측 된 방사형 온도 프로파일은 저온, 고점도 코어 및 고온, 저점도 표면을 가진 폴리머 입자를 시뮬레이션하기 위해 온도 의존 점도 모델과 함께 Flow3D®의 초기 조건으로 사용되었습니다. 이 접근법은 얇은 디스크 내에서 크고 거의 반구형 인 코어를 나타내는 변형 된 입자를 예측했으며 광학 현미경을 사용하여 만든 열 스프레이 스 플랫의 실험 관찰과 일치했습니다.

폴리머 증착에 열 분무 공정을 사용하는 주요 이점은 다음과 같습니다. (i) 휘발성 유기 화합물 (VOCs)을 사용하지 않는 무용제 코팅; (ii) 거의 모든 환경 조건에서 큰 물체를 코팅 할 수있는 능력; (iii) 용융 점도가 높은 폴리머 코팅을 적용하는 능력; 및 (iv) 일반적으로 정전기 분말 코팅 및 용제 기반 페인트에 필요한 오븐 건조 또는 경화와 같은 증착 후 처리없이 “즉시 사용 가능한”코팅을 생산할 수있는 능력. 이러한 공정에 비해 주요 단점은 다음과 같습니다. (i) 낮은 증착 효율, (ii) 낮은 품질의 표면 마감 및 (iii) 높은 공정 복잡성 (종종 폴리머 용융 및 분해 온도에 의해 정의되는 좁은 공정 창). 폴리머 증착에 세 가지 열 스프레이 공정이 사용 된 것으로 알려졌습니다 [1].

  • 기존의 화염 분사.
  • HVOF 연소 스프레이.
  • 플라즈마 스프레이.

HVOF 및 플라즈마 스프레이 공정에 의해 분사되는 폴리머의 수는 제한되어 있으며 HVOF 및 플라즈마 스프레이 폴리머 코팅의 상업적 응용은 아직 개발 단계에 있습니다 [1]. 폴리머의 HVOF 스프레이는 화염 스프레이 [최대 ~ 100m / s]에 비해 상당히 높은 입자 속도 [최대 1,000m / s]로 인해 주로 주목을 받았습니다. 이는 특히 고 분자량 폴리머 및 높은 (> 5 vol. %) 세라믹 강화 함량을 갖는 폴리머 / 세라믹 복합재를 포함하여 용융 점도가 높은 코팅의 증착에있어 중요한 이점입니다.

고착 방울은 평평한 기판에 놓인 액체 방울입니다. 작은 고정 액적이 증발하는 동안 액적의 접촉선은 고정된 접촉 영역이 있는 고정된 단계와 고정된 접촉각이 있는 고정 해제된 단계의 두 가지 단계를 거칩니다. 고정된 접촉 라인이 있는 증발은 액적 내부에서 접촉 라인을 향한 흐름을 생성합니다.

이 흐름은 입자를 운반하고 접촉 선 근처에 침전시킵니다. 이로 인해 일반적으로 관찰되는 “커피 링”현상이 발생합니다. 이 논문은 증발 과정과 고착성 액적의 증발 유도 흐름에 대한 연구를 제공하고 콜로이드 현탁액에서 입자의 침착에 대한 통찰력을 제공합니다. 여기서 우리는 먼저 작은 고착 방울의 증발을 연구하고 증발 과정에서 기판의 열전도도의 중요성에 대해 논의합니다.

현재 증발 모델이 500µm 미만의 액적 크기에 대해 심각한 오류를 생성하는 방법을 보여줍니다. 우리의 모델에는 열 효과가 포함되어 있으며, 특히 증발 잠열의 균형을 맞추기 위해 액적에 열을 제공하는 기판의 열전도도를 포함합니다. 실험 결과를 바탕으로 접촉각의 진화와 관련된 접촉 선의 가상 움직임을 정의하여 고정 및 고정 해제 단계의 전체 증발 시간을 고려합니다.

우리의 모델은 2 % 미만의 오차로 500 µm보다 작은 물방울에 대한 실험 결과와 일치합니다. 또한 유한한 크기의 라인 액적의 증발을 연구하고 증발 중 접촉 라인의 복잡한 동작에 대해 논의합니다. 에너지 공식을 적용하고 접촉 선이 구형 방울의 후퇴 접촉각보다 높은 접촉각을 가진 선 방울의 두 끝에서 후퇴하기 시작 함을 보여줍니다. 그리고 라인 방울 내부의 증발 유도 흐름을 보여줍니다.

마지막으로, 계면 활성제 존재 하에서 접촉 라인의 거동을 논의하고 입자 증착에 대한 Marangoni 흐름 효과에 대해 논의합니다. 열 Marangoni 효과는 접촉 선 근처에 증착 된 입자의 양에 영향을 미치며, 기판 온도가 낮을수록 접촉 선 근처에 증착되는 입자의 양이 많다는 것을 알 수 있습니다.

Abstract

인접한 물방울 사이의 좋은 야금학적 결합은 droplet 기반 3D 프린팅에서 필수적입니다. 그러나 재용해 메커니즘이 명확하게 마스터되었지만, 콜드 랩은 균일한 알루미늄 액적 증착 제조에서 형성된 부품의 일반적인 내부 결함이며, 이는 응고된 액 적의 표면 형태를 간과하기 때문입니다.

여기에서 처음으로 물방울 사이의 융합에 대한 잔물결과 응고각의 차단 효과가 드러났습니다. 재용해의 자세한 과정을 조사하기 위해 VOF (체적 부피) 방법을 기반으로 3D 수치 모델을 개발했습니다. 실험과 시뮬레이션을 통해 인접한 액적 간의 재 용융 공정은 두 번째 액 적과 기판 사이의 과도 접촉에 따라 두 단계로 나눌 수 있음을 보여줍니다.

첫 번째 단계에서는 재용해 조건이 이론적으로 충족 되더라도 콜드 랩이 형성 될 수 있다는 직관적이지 않은 결과가 관찰됩니다. 이전에 증착된 액적 표면의 잔물결은 새로운 액적과의 직접 접촉을 차단합니다. 두 번째 단계에서는 응고 각도가 90 °보다 클 때 액체 금속이 불완전하게 채워져 바닥 표면에 콜드랩이 형성됩니다. 또한 이러한 콜드 랩은 온도 매개 변수를 개선하여 완전히 피하는 것이 어렵습니다.

이 문제를 해결하기 위해 기판의 열전도 계수를 감소시키는 새로운 전략이 제안 되었습니다. 이 방법은 잔물결을 제거하고 응고 각도를 줄임으로써 물방울 사이의 재용해를 효과적으로 촉진합니다.

버블 제트 마이크로 액추에이터에서 기포 성장 및 액체 흐름의 수치 시뮬레이션

Numerical analysis of liquid flow characteristics according to the design parameters of a bubble jet microactuator

마이크로 액추에이터 챔버 및 노즐 내부의 유체 역학의 수치 모델이 제공됩니다. 모델에는 저장소로부터의 잉크 흐름, 기포 형성 및 성장, 노즐을 통한 배출, 리필 프로세스의 역학이 포함됩니다. 고 테이퍼 노즐은 전체 액추에이터 성능 설계에 매우 중요한 매개 변수 중 하나이기 때문에 노즐 두께, 직경 및 테이퍼 각도의 변화에 ​​따른 효과를 시뮬레이션하고 일부 결과를 실험 결과와 비교합니다.

얇고 테이퍼형 노즐을 통한 잉크 방울 배출이 보다 안정적이고 빠르고 견고하다는 것이 확인되었습니다.

Conclusions

수치 시뮬레이션은 마이크로 버블 증가 및 낙하 방출 현상의 예측에 성공적으로 적용됩니다. 노즐 두께의 변화 결과와 비교했을 때, 우리는 얇은 노즐이 더 빠른 방울을 만든다는 것을 발견했습니다. 또한 노즐 직경이 증가하면 방울 부피가 증가할 수 있습니다. 이 수치 시뮬레이션에서는 노즐 직경의 20%를 증가시키면 방울 부피는 49.3% 증가하고 노즐 두께의 20%를 감소시키면 방울 속도는 약 8.5% 증가합니다. 노즐 테이퍼 각도 변경의 예측 결과에 따르면, 테이퍼형 노즐이 더 빠른 속도로 거의 동일한 유체량을 보인다는 결론을 내렸습니다. 방울 속도만이 방울 배출의 품질을 향상시킬 수 있는 유일한 요인은 아니지만, 방울이 빠르면 일반적으로 위성이 줄어들고, 물에 젖지 않는 상태가 개선되며, 정렬 효과가 좋아지며, 직선 방출이 가능합니다.

원자력 시설물의 잔해물 거동 예측

Debris Transport in a Nuclear Reactor Containment Building

원자로 격리 건물에서 파편 운송

이 기사는 FLOW-3D가 원자력 시설에서 봉쇄 시설의 성능을 모델링하는데 사용된 방법을 설명하며, Alion Science and Technology의 Tim Sande & Joe Tezak이 기고 한 바 있습니다.

가압수형 원자로 원자력 발전소에서 원자로 노심을 통해 순환되는 물은 약 2,080 psi 및 585°F의 압력과 온도로 유지되는 1차 배관 시스템에 밀폐됩니다. 수압이 높기 때문에 배관이 파손되면 격납건물 내에 여러 가지 이물질 유형이 생성될 수 있습니다. 이는 절연재가 장비와 균열 주변 영역의 배관에서 떨어져 나가기 때문에 발생합니다. 생성될 수 있는 다양한 유형의 이물질의 일반적인 예가 나와 있습니다(오른쪽).

Emergency Core Cooling System (ECCS)

파이프 파손 후 ECCS (비상 코어 냉각 시스템)가 활성화됩니다. 격리 건물 압력을 낮추고 대기에서 방사성 물질을 제거하기 위해 격리 스프레이를 켤 것입니다. 물은 부식 열을 제거하고 용융을 방지하기 위해 코어에 주입됩니다. 이 물은 이후 파이프 파손 부위에서 흘러 나옵니다. 격납 스프레이와 부식 열 제거에서 나온 물은 외부 탱크에서 ECCS 펌프에 의해 격납용기로 펌핑됩니다. 스프레이 및 브레이크 흐름을 통해 격리실로 펌핑된 물의 양은 격리실 바닥에 모이고 풀을 형성합니다.

Sump Strainers and Debris

외부 탱크의 물이 고갈된 후에는 ECCS 펌프에 대한 흡입기가 격납건물 내 하나 이상의 섬프로 전환됩니다(두 개의 섬프 스트레이너 예가 왼쪽에 표시됨). 섬프의 기능은 원자로 건물 풀에서 펌프 흡입구로 물을 재순환하는 것입니다. 각 섬프에는 이물질이 ECCS 펌프로 빨려 들어가 막힘이나 손상이 발생하는 것을 방지하기 위해 스트레이너 시스템이 있습니다. 그러나 스트레이너에 쌓인 이물질로 인해 펌프가 요구하는 순정 흡수헤드(NPSH)를 초과하는 헤드 손실이 발생하여 펌프가 고장을 일으키고 발전소를 안전하게 정지시킬 수 없습니다. 원자력규제위원회 일반안전문제(GSI) 191의 핵심입니다.

FLOW-3D Applied to Evaluate Performance

FLOW-3D는 격납용기 풀을 모델링하고 스트레이너에 도달할 수 있는 이물질의 양을 결정하는 데 사용됩니다. 파이프 파손, 직접 분무 구역(분무기가 비처럼 POOL에 유입되는 지역), 유출 분무 구역(분무수가 더 높은 고도에서 바닥에서 흘러나와 폭포처럼 POOL에 유입되는 지역)은 질량-모멘텀 소스 입자가 밀집된 지역으로 모델링되며, 적절한 유량과 속도가 할당됩니다. 후자는 POOL 표면까지의 자유 낙하 거리에 따라 달라집니다. 여과기 영역은 격납용기 POOL에서 물을 끌어오는 흡입구로 모델링됩니다.

Containment pool simulation

모델을 자유 표면으로 실행하여 (풀의 섬프 흡입 또는 초크 포인트로 인한) 상당한 수위 변화를 식별하고, RNG 모델을 활성화하여 풀의 난류를 예측합니다. 파괴된 절연체가 격납용기 풀을 통해 이동할 수 있는 능력은 정착 속도(정지 상태에서 이동할 수 있는 기능)와 텀블링 속도(바닥을 가로질러 이동할 수 있는 기능)의 기능입니다. 안착 속도는 절연체를 고정하는 데 필요한 운동 에너지의 양과 관련이 있습니다. 이러한 안착 및 텀블링 속도는 연도 및 탱크 테스트를 통해 결정되며, FLOW-3D 모델에 의해 계산된 값입니다.

모델이 정상 상태 상태에 도달한 후에는 FLOW-3D 결과가 후처리되어 다양한 이물질 유형을 POOL 바닥(빨간색으로 표시됨)으로 넘어뜨릴 수 있을 정도로 속도가 높은 영역 또는 난류가 서스펜션의 이물질을 운반할 수 있을 정도로 높은 영역(노란색으로 표시됨)을 결정합니다.

그런 다음 속도 벡터를 빨간색 및 노란색 영역과 함께 사용하여 흐름이 이물질을 스트레이너 쪽으로 운반하는지 여부를 확인합니다. 그런 다음 이러한 영역을 초기 이물질 분포 영역과 비교하여 각 이물질의 유형 및 크기에 대한 운송 분율을 결정합니다.

Conclusions

이물질 잔해 수송 테스트를 CFD 모델링과 결합하면 ECCS 스트레이너가 견딜 수 있어야하는 잔해 부하를 다른 방법으로는 가정해야하는 지나치게 보수적인 값에서 크게 줄일 수 있습니다. CFD는 또한 수두 손실 테스트를 지원하기 위해 ECCS 스트레이너 주변의 흐름 패턴, 수두 손실 테스트 및 플랜트 설계 수정을 식별하는 데있어 격납용 POOL 수위 변화를 식별하는데 유용함이 입증되었습니다.

모터 냉각에 관한 성능 연구

모터 냉각에 관한 성능 연구

본 연구는 모터 냉각 성능을 실험적으로, 그리고 수치적으로 조사한다. 모터는 원심 팬, 2개의 축 팬, 축, 스테이터, 로터, 637개의 냉각 튜브가 있는 열 교환기로 구성된다.

1800rpm에서 냉각팬의 압력 상승-유량(P-Q) 성능 곡선은 중국 국가표준(CNS) 2726을 준수하는 시험 장치를 사용하여 시험한다. 수치해석 결과, 실험 측정과 비교했을 때 축방향 팬과 원심형 팬의 P-Q 성능 곡선은 각각 약 2%와 6% 이내에서 추정할 수 있다.

단순화된 모델을 사용하여 열교환기와 스테이터를 다공성 매체로 설정함으로써 모터의 흐름장을 계산한다. 로터와 스테이터 근처의 유장 결과를 사용하고, 열 발생 속도를 경계조건으로 하여 스테이터와 로터의 온도분포도 계산한다.

시뮬레이션 결과 축 팬 근처에 있는 스테이터 권선의 계산온도는 측정값보다 약 5% 낮으며, 스테이터 중심에 위치한 스테이터 코어의 계산온도는 측정값보다 약 1% 높다. 이외에도 모터 냉각 성능 향상을 위한 논의가 이루어지고 있다.

모터는 우리 생활에서 널리 사용되고 있지만, 온도는은 모터 생산에서 중요한 고려사항이 된다. 과열은 모터의 수명을 감소시키는 결과를 가져올 것이다. 따라서 비용을 절감하고 최적화된 성능을 얻는 방법은 노력을 기울여야 한다.

CFD(Computational Fluid Dynamics) 코드를 통해 모터의 열 전달을 이해하고 모터의 열 관리를 개선하는 데 유용할 것이다.

모터 성능을 향상시키기 위해, 많은 연구들이 팬의 성능 예측과 최적화에 전념하였다[1-6]. 좋은 팬은 기하학 및 블레이드 번호를 포함하여 모터의 냉각 용량에 영향을 미친다. 게다가, 선풍기에서 발생하는 소음과 진동은 데시벨을 낮추는 방법을 제안할 필요가 있는 핵심이다.

모터 온도와 관련하여 모터 온도를 결정하기 위해 전력 소산 및 모터 열 저항을 고려할 수 있다[7]. 밀폐된 모터 냉각 시스템의 흐름 구조에 따라 달라지는 대류 열전달 때문에 밀폐된 전기 모터의 유체 흐름은 수치적 방법에 의해 연구된다[8]. 모터 성능 연구에서는 CFD 모델링 기법을 사용하여 모터의 열 관리를 조사한다.

[9-13]. 본 연구는 주로 원심 팬(외부 팬), 2개의 축 팬(내부 팬), 샤프트, 스테이터, 로터 및 637개의 냉각 튜브가 장착된 열 교환기로 구성된 2350kW TEAC(Tall Closed Air to Air Cooling) 모터를 조사한다. 이 모델에서 흐름은 외부 흐름과 내부 흐름으로 구분할 수 있다. 그림 1에서, 파란색 화살표는 외부의 차가운 흐름을 나타낸다.

원심 팬이 회전하면서 주변 공기가 공기 장막을 통해 흐른 뒤 637개의 열교환 튜브로 들어가 밖으로 나가는 데서 유래한다. 빨간색 화살표의 순환은 축 팬의 회전으로 인한 내부 열류, 스테이터를 의미한다. 그런 다음 열교환기로 들어가 외부 저온 흐름으로 열교환한다.

본 연구에서는 모터 성능을 Fluent[14]와 상업용 코드인 Flow-3D[15]로 시뮬레이션하고, Gambit을 사용하여 Fluent용 메쉬를 생성한다.

이 모터의 복잡한 지오메트리를 다루기 위해서는 구조화되지 않은 메쉬나 하이브리드 메쉬가 우선 고려되었다. 아쉽게도 멀티 블록 구조 메시 생성 방식을 시도했지만 효과가 없었다. 또한 심하게 치우친 요소를 생성하지 않고 메쉬 확인을 위한 메쉬 테스트도 시뮬레이션 과정에서 중요하다.

본 연구의 첫 번째 부분은 축 및 원심 팬의 성능을 조사하는 것이다. 두 번째는 스테이터와 로터 부근의 전체 모터의 유량장, 압력장, 온도에 대해 논의한다. 모델의 정확성을 입증하기 위해 팬 성능 및 스테이터 온도의 계산 결과를 실험 데이터와 비교한다.

Microfluidics와 nanofluidics는 나노와 나노사이의 기능을 가진 재료와 시스템을 통한 유체 흐름의 과학과 기술을 포함하는 분야입니다. 최근 몇 년 사이에 이 분야의 연구는 재료 개발과 시스템의 급속한 발전된 유체공정의 독특한 이점으로 증가해 왔습니다. Microfluidic 및 nanofluidic 시스템은 화학 반응, 유체 가열, 혼합 및 감지와 같은 순차적 또는 다중화된 공정을 포함할 수 있는 응용 분야에서 마이크로 사이즈의 유체 유동은 매우 효율적이고 반복 가능하며 신속한 처리를 가능하게 합니다. 풀 라니 (Furlani) 교수 그룹의 연구는 새로운 공정 및 장치 개발에 대한 모델링 및 시뮬레이션을 보여줍니다. 이 연구의 대부분은 뉴턴 및 비 뉴턴 유체, 열 전달, 상변화 분석, 자유표면 및 다상분석, 유체와 관련된 유체 현상을 연구하기 위해 최첨단 전산 유체역학을 강조합니다. 매체 상호작용, 다공성 매체를 통한 유동, 완전히 결합된 유체구조 및 입자, 유체 상호작용에 대해 콜로이드. 국제 나노 기술 학술 대회에서 3 편의 논문이 발표될 예정입니다. 2014년 6월 15일부터 18 일까지 워싱턴 DC의 Gaylord National Hotel 및 Convention Center에서 개최됩니다. 이들은 버팔로 대학교 (University at Buffalo)에서 진행되는 획기적인 결과를 선보입니다. 여기에서는 이러한 작품의 미리 보기와 FLOW-3D로 생성된 시뮬레이션 결과 중 일부를 제시합니다.

Magnetic 입자는 생체 의학 및 임상 진단 응용을 위해 생체 재료를 선택적으로 분리 및 분류하는 마이크로 유체시스템에 점점 더 많이 사용되고 있습니다. 그러한 시스템의 합리적인 설계에 사용될 수 있는 전산모델이 도입되었습니다. 이 모델은 자기 및 유체 역학적 힘, 완전 결합 입자 – 유체 상호 작용 및 입자의 자기 조립을 유도하는 자기 쌍극자와 쌍극자의 상호 작용을 비롯한 입자 수송에 대한 지배적 메커니즘을 고려합니다. 응용 프로그램을 통해 연속흐름 분리시스템 및 회전 조립 체인을 기반으로 하는 미세 유체 혼합프로세스로 시연됩니다.

Colloidal 귀금속 (plasmonic) 나노 구조는 나노 입자 합성에서부터 바이오 이미징 (bioimaging), 의학 요법 (medical therapy)에 이르기까지 다양한 광열 (photothermal) 분야에서 점점 더 많이 사용되고 있습니다. 많은 응용분야에서, 펄스 레이저는 plasmonic 공진 주파수에서 나노 구조를 사용하며, 이는 광자의 흡수 및 고도로 국부화된 파장필드의 향상을 가져옵니다. 원격 소스로부터 효율적인 나노 스케일 가열하는 것 외에도, 합성동안 나노 입자의 구조를 조정함으로써 근적외선 스펙트럼을 통한 공진 가열파장을 조정할 수 있습니다. 우리 그룹은 nanosecond-pulsed, laser-heated colloidal metallic nanoparticles 및 열 유체 거동을 예측하는 전산모델을 개발했습니다. 이 모델은 플라즈몬 공명, 입자에서 주변 유체로의 열 전달 및 균일한 기포 핵 형성을 유도하는 유체의 위상변화에서 나노 입자 내의 에너지 전환을 시뮬레이션 하는데 사용되었습니다. nanorods, nanotori, nanorings 및 nanocages 등 다양한 nanoparticle 형상이 연구되었습니다. 이 분석은 레이저 강도, 입사 파장, 편광, 펄스 지속 시간 및 나노 입자의 방향 및 모양과 같은 공정 매개 변수가 광열 공정을 최적화하도록 조정될 수 있음을 보여줍니다. Plasmonic nanoparticles는 악성 조직의 약물 치료, 약물 전달 및 생체치료에 사용됩니다.

냉각 및 공급 시스템 설계 / Cooling and Feeding System Design

캐비티 또는 다공성 결함은 일반적으로 마지막 냉각 지점에서 발생됩니다. 라이저는 일반적으로 주조물이 응고 될 때 용융 금속을 주물에 제공하여 이러한 결함을 방지하는 데 사용됩니다. 그러나 라이저(risers)가 효과적이려면 수축을 보상하기에 충분한 재료를 포함 할 수 있도록 적절한 크기로 올바른 위치에 배치해야합니다. FLOW-3D에서 캐스터가 결함이 없는 주물을 위한 냉각 및 공급 시스템을 설계할 수 있도록 도와 주는 두가지 새로운 도구가 개발되었습니다. 즉, 마지막으로 동결할 장소의 예측과 열 계수의 계산입니다.

마지막으로 냉각할 위치 / Last Places to Freeze

주조물 내에서 마지막으로 냉각되고 수축 다공성 결함이 발생할 가능성이 높은 직접 표시 위치. 이러한 장소들은 고체 부분의 진행이나 응고 시간으로부터 파생될 수 있지만, 그것들을 시각화하는 좀 더 직접적인 방법이 항상 선호된다.

그림 2. 핫스팟 입자를 포함하는 액체 부피의 진행 예시 : t3> t2> t1.
그림 1. 핫스팟 입자는 바로 이웃이 고체가 된 후 응고 될 때 셀의 중앙에 삽입됩니다.Hot spot particle그림 2. 핫스팟 입자를 포함하는 액체 부피의 진화 예시 : t3> t2> t1.

특수한 유형의 고정 입자가 “핫 스폿”이라고 하는 가장 최근의 자유로운 위치를 식별하고 시각화하는 데 사용됩니다. 이 출력은 응고 모델이 사용될 때 자동으로 생성됩니다. 핫 스폿 입자는 그림 1에서 도해로 나타난 것처럼 모든 인접 요소가 고체가 된 후 응고될 때 셀에 삽입됩니다.

이러한 입자는 자유로운 마지막 위치를 식별하는것 외에도 이러한 위치에서 수축 다공성 결함의 가능성과 크기, 즉 셀 응고 시간, 핫 스폿 ID및 핫 스폿 크기를 결정하는 데 사용할 수 있는 다른 속성을 가지고 있습니다. 셀 응고 시간은 셀 이 응고되는 시간입니다. 핫 스폿 ID는 핫 스폿이 응고되는 순서를 보여 줍니다(1은 첫번째, 2는 두번째 등). 마지막으로, 핫 스폿 크기는 다음 등식으로 계산된다.

hsm (i) 는 입자 i의 핫스팟 크기입니다 .
t 0 은 입자의 위치에서 셀 응고 시간입니다.
ν liq (t) 는 시간 t

그림 2는 연결된 액체 영역 부피가 입자 i 의 시간 함수로 어떻게 변하는 지 보여줍니다 . 계산 된 양은 모든 핫스팟 크기의 값을 0과 1 사이의 범위로 가져 오도록 정규화됩니다. 이는 다공성 형성에 대한 잠재적 인 영향과 관련하여 주조 내 여러 핫스팟의 간단한 비교 분석을 허용합니다. 값이 높을수록 응고 중에 연결된 액체 영역이 더 커졌으며 마지막 동결 위치에서 수축 다공성 결함이있을 가능성이 더 큽니다.

열 모듈러스 방법 / The Thermal Modulus Method

열 계수 법은 특히 알루미늄 합금 및 강철 주조물의 경우 일반적인 라이저 설계에 가장 많이 사용되는 방법 중 하나입니다. 주어진 주물 부품의 경우 그 계수는 다음과 같이 정의됩니다.

, 여기서:

V는 주조 부품의 체적이고,

A은(는)주물 부품의 표면적입니다.

주물의 기하학적 계수는 구 또는 블록과 같은 일반적인 형상에 대해 계산하기 쉽습니다. 이보다 더 복잡한 작업에는 일반적인 모양에 따라 주조 섹션을 지루하게 근사치를 계산해야 합니다. 또한 기하학적 계수 접근 방식은 주물의 기하학적 구조에 전적으로 의존합니다. 실제 주조물은 한기 및 절연체를 사용하여 응고 진행을 제어합니다. 이러한 특성은 기하학적 계수 접근 방식에서 무시된다. 계수 계산을 자동화하고 냉각, 단열 및 기타 몰드 변화와 관련된 열 효과를 고려하기 위해 라이저 설계에 흔히 열 계수라는 혁신적인 접근 방식이 사용됩니다.

열 계수 접근 방식의 경우 먼저 주물의 응고 시뮬레이션을 실행합니다. 시뮬레이션이 완료되면, Chvorinov의 규칙에 따른 응고 시간으로부터 주물 전체에 해당하는 계수를 계산할 수 있습니다. 이 방법을 사용하여 계산된 등가 계수를 열 계수라고 합니다. 라이저 설계를 안내하기 위해 기하학적 계수와 동일한 방법으로 사용할 수 있다.

Chvorinov의 규칙은 응고 시간 사이의 관계를 제공하며, 그 계수는 다음과 같이 기록될 수 있다.

, 여기서:

  • t는 주조 응고 시간입니다.
  • N은 상수(일반적으로 2와 같음)입니다.
  • B는 금형의 상수입니다. 다음 공식을 사용하여 계산할 수 있습니다.

, 여기서:

  • mρρ는 금속의 밀도이고,
  • mT는 금속의 용해 또는 동결 온도입니다.
  • 0TT는 금형의 초기 온도입니다.
  • k는 주형의 열 전도율입니다.
  • ρ는 주형의 밀도입니다.
  • c는 곰팡이의 특정한 열이다.
  • L은 금속의 융해열이다.
  • mcc는 금속의 특정한 열이며,
  • pourTT는 금속 주입 온도이다.

일반적으로 주조 공정을 설계할 때 라이저의 응고 시간이 인접한 주조 섹션의 응고 시간보다 긴 방식으로 라이저를 선택하여 적절한 이송을 할 수 있습니다. Chvorinov의 규칙에 따르면 응고 시간은 주물의 계수에 정비례합니다. 따라서 응고 시간을 비교할 때 모듈을 직접 비교할 수 있습니다. 모듈은 기하학적인 양에 불과하기 때문에 모듈의 비교는 설계 작업을 훨씬 더 단순하게 만든다. 금속 주조 엔지니어는 실제 주조 공정의 구체적인 내용을 고려하지 않고도 보다 큰 계수로 압탕을 설계하여 부품을 적절하게 이송할 수 있습니다.

냉방 및 공급 시스템 설계를 위한 새로운 도구의 적용

예를 들어, 새로운 공구를 사용하는 증기 터빈 실린더의 절반에 대한 중력 주조를 위한 냉각 및 공급 시스템 설계가 유량 과학 중국에 의해 제공되고 이 절에서 논의된다. 부품의 외부 치수는 2.83×2.34×1.10 m이며, 총 용적은 아래와 같이 약 0.95입방 미터이다. 주조 재료는 탄소강이며 주입 온도는 1530°C이다.

첫째, 냉각 장치와 라이저가 없는 주물의 응고 시뮬레이션을 실행합니다. 그 목적은 뜨거운 스폿 위치를 식별하고 한기와 라이저의 위치와 라이저의 크기를 결정하는 것이다. 이 두가지 새로운 공구는 냉기와 라이저 설계를 개선하는데 사용됩니다.

마지막으로 입자를 동결하는 장소는 셀 응고 시간, 입자 ID및 핫 스폿 크기로 각각 색상이 지정된 다음 그림에 표시됩니다. 핫 스폿 위치와 수축 다공성 결함이 발생할 가능성은 이러한 그림에서 직접 확인할 수 있습니다. 주조물의 기하학적 특성에 따라 라이저 배치 위치는 그림. 4의 마지막 프레임에서 볼 수 있듯이 쉽게 결정할 수 있습니다. 단, 바닥 껍질에는 라이저 배치에 적합하지 않은 몇개의 핫 스폿이 있습니다. 이러한 위치에서 수축 다공성 결함을 방지하기 위해 한기를 사용하여 응고 패턴을 변경하고 라이저 영역에 마지막으로 동결하는 위치를 구동할 수 있습니다.

Hot spot locations

열 모듈 계산

계산된 열 계수는 오른쪽에 표시되어 있습니다. 값이 클수록 마지막으로 고정할 위치와 일치합니다. 또한 열 계수를 사용하여 핫 스폿 위치의 라이저 크기를 결정할 수 있습니다.

일단 한기와 라이저가 결정되면 냉각제와 라이저를 사용한 두번째 응고 시뮬레이션을 실행하여 냉각제와 라이저 설계를 검증한다. 핫 스폿 크기로 채색된 마지막 자유형 입자와 열 계수는 그림. 6과 같다. 한기가 마지막 부분을 성공적으로 운전하여 라이저 부위를 얼리는 것을 볼 수 있다. 하지만, 라이저 아래에는 여전히 위험한 핫 스폿이 있다. 실제로 실제 주조물은 아래 그림과 같이 핫 스폿 입자로 식별된 위치에서 수축 다공성 결함을 보여 줍니다.

Calculated thermal modulus
그림 5. 계산된 열 계수

마지막으로 동결할 장소는 라이저가 아니라 주조물에 있습니다. 이는 라이저 위치와 크기가 올바르게 결정되더라도 주물이 라이저 쪽으로 방향성 있게 응고되지 않도록 응고 패턴이 올바르지 않음을 나타냅니다. 한가지 해결책은 발열체 슬리브를 사용하여 응고 패턴을 수정하는 것이다. 이것은 이 글의 범위를 벗어나므로 더 이상의 논의는 없을 것이다.

Cooling and feeding system design
그림 6. 핫 스폿 위치(상단 좌측), 단열 계수(상단 오른쪽)는 계측된 주조물로 계산되며 수축 결함의 관측된 위치입니다.

결론

금속 공학자들이 결함이 없는 주물을 위한 냉각 및 공급 시스템을 설계하는 데 도움이 되도록 FLOW-3DCAST5.0에서 두개의 새로운 공구가 개발되었습니다:마지막으로 동결할 장소와 열 계수의 계산입니다. 수축 다공성 결함이 발생할 가능성이 높은 곳은 마지막으로 동결할 장소입니다. 이들은 한기와 라이저가 위치해야 하는 위치를 나타냅니다. 열 계수는 냉기와 라이저 위치를 결정하는 데도 사용할 수 있습니다. 또한 라이저 크기를 결정하는 데 사용할 수 있습니다.

이 비디오는 벽 온도에 의해 색칠 된 금형을 통해 10 사이클을 보여줍니다. 슬라이스는 첫 번째 단계에서 코어 냉각 채널을 표시하고 한 단계에서 다른 단계에서 꺼지는 것을 표시하도록 선택되었습니다.

Microfluidics와 nanofluidics는 나노와 나노사이의 기능을 가진 재료와 시스템을 통한 유체 흐름의 과학과 기술을 포함하는 분야입니다. 최근 몇 년 사이에 이 분야의 연구는 재료 개발과 시스템의 급속한 발전된 유체공정의 독특한 이점으로 증가해 왔습니다. Microfluidic 및 nanofluidic 시스템은 화학 반응, 유체 가열, 혼합 및 감지와 같은 순차적 또는 다중화된 공정을 포함할 수 있는 응용 분야에서 마이크로 사이즈의 유체 유동은 매우 효율적이고 반복 가능하며 신속한 처리를 가능하게 합니다. 풀 라니 (Furlani) 교수 그룹의 연구는 새로운 공정 및 장치 개발에 대한 모델링 및 시뮬레이션을 보여줍니다. 이 연구의 대부분은 뉴턴 및 비 뉴턴 유체, 열 전달, 상변화 분석, 자유표면 및 다상분석, 유체와 관련된 유체 현상을 연구하기 위해 최첨단 전산 유체역학을 강조합니다. 매체 상호작용, 다공성 매체를 통한 유동, 완전히 결합된 유체구조 및 입자, 유체 상호작용에 대해 콜로이드. 국제 나노 기술 학술 대회에서 3 편의 논문이 발표될 예정입니다. 2014년 6월 15일부터 18 일까지 워싱턴 DC의 Gaylord National Hotel 및 Convention Center에서 개최됩니다. 이들은 버팔로 대학교 (University at Buffalo)에서 진행되는 획기적인 결과를 선보입니다. 여기에서는 이러한 작품의 미리 보기와 FLOW-3D로 생성된 시뮬레이션 결과 중 일부를 제시합니다.

Corning’s bench-scale spinner flask의 3D 계산 모델은 최첨단 CFD 소프트웨어 인 FLOW-3D를 사용하여 제작되었습니다. 임펠러 속도, 배양액 및 입자 크기와 같은 매개변수가 마이크로 캐리어 입자에 작용되는 전단응력에 미치는 영향을 CFD 분석을 사용하여 연구하였습니다. 이것은 세포가 겪는 정확한 전단 조건을 예측하고 세포의 손상을 방지하는 최적의 작동조건을 확인하는데 사용됩니다. 또한, 다원능 마커 Oct4, Sox2 및 Nanog를 운반하는 세포의 비율을 세포 계측법 및 정량적 PCR을 사용하여 측정함으로써 hPSCs의 다능성 전단효과를 연구합니다.

Magnetic 입자는 생체 의학 및 임상 진단 응용을 위해 생체 재료를 선택적으로 분리 및 분류하는 마이크로 유체시스템에 점점 더 많이 사용되고 있습니다. 그러한 시스템의 합리적인 설계에 사용될 수 있는 전산모델이 도입되었습니다. 이 모델은 자기 및 유체 역학적 힘, 완전 결합 입자 – 유체 상호 작용 및 입자의 자기 조립을 유도하는 자기 쌍극자와 쌍극자의 상호 작용을 비롯한 입자 수송에 대한 지배적 메커니즘을 고려합니다. 응용 프로그램을 통해 연속흐름 분리시스템 및 회전 조립 체인을 기반으로 하는 미세 유체 혼합프로세스로 시연됩니다.

Colloidal 귀금속 (plasmonic) 나노 구조는 나노 입자 합성에서부터 바이오 이미징 (bioimaging), 의학 요법 (medical therapy)에 이르기까지 다양한 광열 (photothermal) 분야에서 점점 더 많이 사용되고 있습니다. 많은 응용분야에서, 펄스 레이저는 plasmonic 공진 주파수에서 나노 구조를 사용하며, 이는 광자의 흡수 및 고도로 국부화된 파장필드의 향상을 가져옵니다. 원격 소스로부터 효율적인 나노 스케일 가열하는 것 외에도, 합성동안 나노 입자의 구조를 조정함으로써 근적외선 스펙트럼을 통한 공진 가열파장을 조정할 수 있습니다. 우리 그룹은 nanosecond-pulsed, laser-heated colloidal metallic nanoparticles 및 열 유체 거동을 예측하는 전산모델을 개발했습니다. 이 모델은 플라즈몬 공명, 입자에서 주변 유체로의 열 전달 및 균일한 기포 핵 형성을 유도하는 유체의 위상변화에서 나노 입자 내의 에너지 전환을 시뮬레이션 하는데 사용되었습니다. nanorods, nanotori, nanorings 및 nanocages 등 다양한 nanoparticle 형상이 연구되었습니다. 이 분석은 레이저 강도, 입사 파장, 편광, 펄스 지속 시간 및 나노 입자의 방향 및 모양과 같은 공정 매개 변수가 광열 공정을 최적화하도록 조정될 수 있음을 보여줍니다. Plasmonic nanoparticles는 악성 조직의 약물 치료, 약물 전달 및 생체치료에 사용됩니다.

시뮬레이션 소프트웨어는 설계자와 엔지니어가 주조 공정의 세부 사항을 이해하고 경쟁사보다 저렴한 비용으로 고품질 부품을 일관성 있게 제작할 수 있게 해주는 유용한 도구입니다. 고압 다이캐스팅에서 시뮬레이션 소프트웨어는 주조 내로 금속을 공급하고 난류로 인한 공기 유입을 방지하기 위해 샷 슬리브 팁의 타이밍을 개선하고 오버 플로우에 대한 가장 효과적인 위치를 식별하는 더 나은 게이팅 시스템을 설계하는 데 사용됩니다. 이 기사에서는 프로세스 시간을 단축하기 위해 부품을 다이에서 배출하기 전에 시간을 줄이는 방법을 살펴 보겠습니다.

비스킷은 주조 과정에서 고형화 된 마지막 장소이기 때문에 우리의 노력에 집중할 수 있는 자연스러운 곳이며 따라서 부품을 언제 꺼낼 수 있는지를 결정합니다. 따라서 비스킷의 응고 시간을 줄일 수 있다면 전반적인 공정 시간을 줄일 수 있습니다. 이를 수행하는 한 가지 방법은 유체와 접촉하는 영역의 양을 늘려 샷팁을 통해 금속에서 더 많은 열을 제거하는 것입니다. 이 경우 정확하게 적용할 수는 없지만, 아래에 표시된 정상상태 대류 방정식을 사용하면 이 접근법의 기초가 가장 쉽게 표시됩니다.

이 방정식에서 열 흐름은 대류 열 전달 계수이고, 금속 팁과 샷 팁 온도의 차이이며, 금속과 접촉하는 샷 팁의 표면적입니다. 그림 1에서 볼 수 있듯이 오늘날 시장에서 볼 수 있는 다양한 형태의 플런저 팁이 금속과 접촉하는 표면적을 증가시키도록 설계되었습니다.

Figure 1: Plunger tips varying in size and surface area [1]

비스킷에서 제거된 열을 증가시키는 또 다른 방법은 비스켓에서 샷 팁과 금속 사이의 온도 차이를 조절하는 것입니다. 이는 그림 2 에서처럼 냉각 선을 팁에 추가하여 수행됩니다. 이 접근법의 단점은 피스톤 어셈블리에 상당한 복잡성을 추가한다는 것입니다.

Figure 2: Cooling within plunger tip [2]

New design

이 기사에서 FLOW-3D Cast를 사용하여 새로운 플런저 팁 디자인을 분석하고 수정되지 않은 표준 원통형 팁과 비교했습니다. 그림 3에서와 같이 끝 부분에 별 모양의 컷 아웃이 있는 원통형 팁으로 구성된 수정된 팁은 수정되지 않은 샷 팁보다 20 % 더 많은 표면적을 갖습니다. 팁은 분석을 위해 물로 냉각되지 않습니다.

Figure 3: Shape of the modified tip to give 20% increase in area

 

Analysis

각 샷 팁 디자인에 대해 충진 (샷 팁 모션 포함) 및 응고 (플로우 미포함) 시뮬레이션을 실행했습니다. 모든 다른 매개 변수는 사례간에 동일합니다. 주요 관심사는 두 가지입니다. 즉, 충전 중 흐름 패턴과 전반적인 응고 시간입니다. 샷 팁 디자인이 파동 및 공기 유입을 유발하는 경우 팁 또는 샷 슬리브 프로파일을 다시 설계해야 하기 때문에 충진 중 흐름 패턴이 중요합니다.

첫 번째 비교는 그림 4에 표시된 샷 슬리브의 흐름 패턴입니다. 이 그림은 수정 된 팁이 있거나 없는 샷 슬리브 중 유체의 이미지를 보여 주며 팁의 모양이 샷 슬리브에 영향을 주지 않는 것으로 나타났습니다. 흐름 패턴. 샷 프로파일에 거의 영향을 주지 않기 때문에 응고에 집중할 수 있습니다.

Figure 4: Flow patterns in the shot sleeves from both tips.

 

두 번째 비교는 응고 시간입니다. 그림 5는 시간의 함수로서 팁의 평균 온도, 시간의 함수로서 금속으로부터 팁으로의 열 유속 및 추출시의 액체 금속의 온도 프로파일을 비교합니다

Figure 5: The above time plots show the average temperature in tip on the upper left hand corner and the heat flux from the metal to the tip in the upper right hand corner. The images below this show the metal temperature within the biscuit of the two castings.

그림 5에서 볼 수 있듯이, 그래프는 금속에서 더 많은 열을 추출했기 때문에 수정 된 팁의 평균 온도가 더 높음을 보여줍니다. 이것은 또한 열 유속 플롯에 표시됩니다. 그래프 아래의 이미지는 비스킷과 탄환의 경계면에서 액체금속을 보여줍니다. 데이터는 수정된 팁을 사용하여 열 제거가 12.7 % 증가한 것을 보여줍니다.

Conclusions

샷 팁 디자인은 주조 부품의 응고 시간에 눈에 띄는 영향을 미칩니다. 시뮬레이션 소프트웨어는 효과를 분석하고 이 지식을 사용하여 프로세스 매개변수를 최적화하는 방법을 제공합니다.

공동 또는 다공성 결함은 일반적으로 마지막 응고 위치에서 형성됩니다. 라이저는 일반적으로 주조물이 굳을 때 녹은 금속을 주조물에 제공하여 이러한 결함을 방지하는데 사용됩니다. 그러나 라이저가 효과를 발휘하려면 적절한 크기에 적절한 위치에 배치하여 수축량을 보상할 수 있는 충분한 재료를 포함해야 합니다. FLOW-3D CAST에서는 캐스터가 결점 없는 주물을 위한 냉각 및 공급 시스템을 설계할 수 있도록 두 가지 새로운 도구가 개발되었습니다. 즉, 마지막으로 응고될 장소의 예측과 열 계수 계산입니다.

Last Places to Freeze

마지막으로 응고딜 장소는 주물 내 가장 늦게 응고되는 위치와 수축 다공성 결함이 형성될 가능성이 있는 위치를 직접 표시합니다. 이러한 장소는 고체 분율 진화 또는 응고 시간으로부터 파생될 수 있지만, 보다 직접적인 시각화 방법이 항상 선호됩니다.

특수 유형의 고정 입자는 “핫 스폿”이라고 불리는 마지막 응고 위치를 식별하고 시각화하는 데 사용됩니다. 이 출력은 응고 모델을 사용할 때 자동으로 생성됩니다. 핫 스폿 입자는 그림 1에 도식적으로 나타난 바와 같이, 모든 인접 영역이 고체화된 후에 응고될 때 셀에 삽입됩니다.

이러한 입자는 최종 자유도 위치를 파악하는 것 외에 이러한 위치에서 수축 다공성 결함의 가능성과 크기를 결정하는 데 사용할 수 있는 다른 속성을 가지고 있습니다. 즉, 셀 응고 시간, 핫 스폿 ID 및 핫 스폿크기,  셀이 응고되는 시간입니다. 핫 스폿 ID는 핫 스폿이 첫번째 지점, 두번째 지점인 순서를 나타냅니다. 마지막으로 핫 스팟크기는 다음 공식으로 계산됩니다.

이 입자들은 마지막으로 동결된 위치를 식별하는 것 외에도 이러한 위치에서 수축 다공성 결함의 가능성 및 크기, 즉 셀 응고 시간, 핫 스폿 ID 및 핫 스폿 크기를 결정하는 데 사용할 수 있는 다른 속성을 가지고 있습니다. 셀 응고 시간은 셀이 응고되는 시간입니다. 핫 스폿 ID는 핫 스폿이 굳어지는 순서를 나타냅니다. 1은 첫 번째, 2는 두 번째 등. 마지막으로, 핫 스폿 크기는 다음 방정식으로 계산됩니다.

 

  • hsm(i) 는 입자 i에 대한 핫스팟 크기입니다.
  • t0 는 입자 위치에서의 세포 응고 시간입니다.
  • νliq(t) 는 시간 t에서 입자를 포함하는 액체 영역의 부피입니다.

Figure 1. A hot spot particle is inserted at the center of a cell when it solidifies after its immediate neighbors become solid.

Figure 2. 핫스팟 입자를 포함하는 액체 부피의 진행상태 예시 : t3> t2> t1.

그림 2는 연결된 액체 지역의 부피가 입자 속도의 함수로서 어떻게 변하는지를 보여 준다. 그런 다음 계산된 양을 정규화하여 모든 핫 스팟 크기 값을 0과 1사이의 범위로 가져옵니다. 이를 통해 다공성 형성에 미치는 잠재적인 영향과 관련하여 주물 내 여러 핫 스폿을 간단하게 비교 분석할 수 있습니다. 값이 높을수록 응고하는 동안 연결된 액체 영역이 커지며 최종-동결 위치에서 다공성 결함이 줄어들 가능성이 높아집니다.

 

The Thermal Modulus Method

열 계수 법은 일반적인 라이저 설계 시 가장 많이 사용되는 방법 중 하나이며, 특히 알루미늄 합금 및 강철 주물에 사용됩니다. 주어진 주물 부품의 경우, 그 계수는 다음과 같이 정의됩니다.

  • V는 주조 부품의 체적이며
  • A는 주조 부품의 표면적입니다.

주물의 기하학적 계수는 구체나 블록과 같은 정규 형상에 대해 계산하기 쉽습니다. 그보다 더 복잡한 것은 보통 모양으로 주조 섹션을 지루하게 근사치를 구하는 것입니다. 또한, 기하학적 계수형 접근 방식은 주물의 기하학적 구조에 전적으로 의존합니다.

실제 주조물은 냉각제와 절연체를 사용하여 응고 진행을 제어합니다. 이러한 형상은 기하 계수 접근 방식에서는 무시된다. 계수 계산을 자동화하고, 동결 융해, 단열 및 기타 주형 변형과 관련된 열 영향을 고려하기 위해 열 계수라고 하는 혁신적인 접근법이 라이저 디자인에 사용된다.

열 계수 접근 방식의 경우 먼저 주조물의 응고 시뮬레이션이 실행됩니다. 시뮬레이션이 완료되면, Cavorinov의 규칙에 근거한 응고 시간으로부터 주물 전체의 등가 계수를 계산할 수 있습니다. 이 접근법을 사용하여 계산된 등가 계수를 열 계수라고 한다. 그것은 라이저 설계를 가이드하기 위해 기하학적 계수와 동일한 방법으로 사용될 수 있다.

 

Chvorinov의 법칙은 응고 시간과의 관계를 나타내며 그 계수는 다음과 같이 쓸 수 있습니다.

  • t is the casting solidification time,
  • N is a constant (usually equal to 2), and
  • B is the mold constant. It can be calculated using the following formula:

주조 공정을 설계할 때 라이저는 적절한 유동을 위해 라이저의 응고 시간이 인접 주조 섹션의 응고 시간보다 긴 방식으로 설계됩니다. Chvorinov의 규칙에 따르면 응고 시간은 주물의 계수에 정비례합니다. 따라서 응고 시간을 비교할 때 모듈화를 직접 비교할 수 있습니다. 모듈형은 기하학적인 양이기 때문에, 모듈형의 비교는 훨씬 단순하게 설계를 할수있습니다. 금속 주조 엔지니어는 실제 주조 공정의 세부 사항을 고려하지 않고도 부품을 적절하게 이송할 수 있도록 계수가 큰 라이저를 설계할 수 있습니다.

 

Application of the New Tools to Cooling and Feeding System Design  

예를 들어, 새로운 도구를 사용하는 증기 터빈 실린더의 절반에 대한 냉각 및 공급 시스템 설계가 제공되고 이 섹션에서 Flow Science China 도움을 받아 논의됩니다. 부품의 외부 치수는 2.83×2.34×1.10미터이고 총 부피는 아래와 같이 약 0.95 세제곱미터입니다. 주물 재료는 탄소강이며 주입 온도는 150°C입니다.

Figure 3. Casting part geometry

첫째, 냉각제와 라이저가 없는 주조물의 응고 시뮬레이션을 실행합니다. 그 목적은 핫 스폿 위치를 확인하고 응고 건조기 및 라이저의 위치와 라이저의 크기를 결정하는 것입니다. 두개의 새로운 도구는 냉기와 라이저 설계를 개선하는 데 사용됩니다.

입자를 응고할 마지막 위치는 각각 셀 응고 시간, 입자 ID 및 핫 스폿 크기로 표시된 다음 그림과 같습니다. 이러한 그림을 통해 핫 스폿 위치와 수축 다공성 결함을 형성할 가능성을 직접 확인할 수 있습니다. 주물의 기하학적 특성에 기초하여, 라이저를 배치하는 위치는 그림의 마지막 프레임과 같이 쉽게 확인할 수 있습니다.

그러나 하단 쉘에 몇개의 핫 스폿이 있으며 이는 라이저를 배치하는 데 적합하지 않습니다. 이러한 위치에서 다공성 결함의 수축을 방지하기 위해 냉각제를 사용하여 응고 패턴을 변경하고 마지막으로 라이저 영역까지 응고시킬 수 있습니다.

Figure 4. Hot spot locations colored by three attributes (clockwise from top left): hot spot solidification time, particle id and hot spot magnitude.

 

Thermal Modulus Computation

계산 된  thermal modulus는 오른쪽에 표시됩니다. 더 큰 값은 응고될 마지막 위치와 일치합니다. 또한 열 모듈러스를 사용하여 핫스팟 위치에서 라이저의 크기를 결정할 수 있습니다.

냉각 및 라이저가 결정되면 냉각 및 라이저 설계를 확인하기 위해 냉각 및 라이저가 포함된 두 번째 응고 시뮬레이션이 실행됩니다. 핫스팟 크기로 채색된 마지막 응고 위치 입자와 thermal modulus가 그림 6에 나와 있습니다. 냉각이 마지막 장소를 라이저 영역으로 성공적으로 응고시키는 것을 볼 수 있습니다. 그러나 라이저 아래에는 여전히 위험한 핫 스팟이 있습니다. 실제로 실제 주조는 아래 그림에 표시된 것처럼 핫스팟 입자로 식별된 위치에서 수축 다공성 결함을 보여줍니다.

 

 

 

Figure 5. Calculated thermal modulus

Calculated thermal modulus 마지막으로 동결할 장소는 라이저가 아닌 주물 안에 있습니다. 즉, 라이저 위치와 크기가 올바르게 결정되더라도 주물이 라이저 쪽 방향으로 굳지 않도록 응고 패턴이 올바르지 않다는 것을 의미합니다. 한 가지 해결책은 발열 라이저 슬리브를 사용하여 응고 패턴을 수정하는 것입니다. 이것은 본 기사의 범위를 벗어나기 때문에, 더 이상 논의되지 않을 것입니다.

Defect Prediction / 결함 예측

Identify Filling Defects using Particles  결함 예측 및 입자를 이용한 주입 결함 식별

파티클을 사용하는 FLOW-3D CAST v5를 통해 유입된 가스로 인한 충전 결함을 식별하는 것이 훨씬 쉬워 졌습니다. 결함을 식별하기가 훨씬 용이할 뿐만 아니라, 결함 예측에 따른 계산 비용도 크게 절감되었습니다.

붕괴된 가스 지역을 나타내는 보이드 입자가 도입되었습니다. 이전에 붕괴된 가스 영역은 너무 압축되어 수치 메쉬에서 해결할 수 없으면 시뮬레이션에서 사라졌습니다. 보이드 입자는 작은 기포처럼 작용하며 드래그와 압력을 통해 금속과 상호 작용합니다. 주변의 금속 압력에 따라 크기가 변하며, 주입이 끝난 후 최종 위치를 보면 공기 침투 및 산화물로 인한 잠재적인 결함이 있음을 알 수 있습니다.

Metal/Wall Contact Time 금속/벽 접촉 시간

벽면 접촉 시간은 금형 표면에서 다른 부위보다 금속에 더 오래 노출된 부위를 식별하는 데 유용합니다. 금속 접촉 시간은 금속이 고체 구성 요소와 접촉한 시간을 나타냅니다. 예를 들어 모래 입자가 핵분해 부위의 역할을 하기 때문에 미세 먼지가 발생할 수 있습니다. 개별 솔리드 구성 요소와의 금속 접촉 시간 출력이 모든 구성 요소와의 접촉 시간을 포함하도록 확장되었습니다. 접촉 시간 계산은 출력 탭에서 벽 접촉 시간을 선택하여 활성화합니다.

일반적으로 라이저 크기 조정에 사용되는 열 모듈은 이제 응고 시뮬레이션에서 출력됩니다.

Risers will likely need to be placed on the circled regions.

Hot Spots  핫 스팟

또 다른 결과인 “핫 스팟”은 라이저를 찾고 크기를 조정하며, 응고 관련 결함의 가능성을 식별하는 데 유용합니다. 핫 스팟은 최종적으로 응고된 부위를 나타냅니다. 이것들은 입자들로 표현되고 뜨거운 점 크기에 의해 색깔이 변하기도 합니다. 라이저는 핫 스팟 크기가 가장 큰 곳에 배치해야 합니다.

Porosity Analysis Tool

FlowSight의 새로운 Porosity Analysis Tool은 실제적인 측면에서 porosity-related 결점을 식별합니다. 결점은 이제 순 볼륨, 최대 선형 범위, 모양 인자 및 total count로 식별됩니다.

New defect identification tools allow users to analyze porosity.

Arbitrary 2D Clips 임의 2D 클립

기능 지향적인 2D 클립은 결함을 찾기 위해 전면적으로 살펴 볼 때 유용합니다. 이전에는 클립에 표시된 금속 영역이 솔리드에 의해 점유된 셀로 확장되었습니다. 잡식의 FLOW-3D CAST v5에서 이 클립은 구성 요소를 숨기는 옵션을 선택해야만 열린 공간(예:주조 부품)의 금속을 보여 줄 수 있습니다.

Intensification Pressure 강화 압력

고압 주조 시뮬레이션에 지정된 강화 압력은 이제 매크로 및 마이크로 Porosity모델 모두에 결합되어 형성 사이의 보다 현실적인 관계를 형성합니다. 이러한 결함의 크기 및 플런저에 의해 가해지는 압력의 크기입니다.

Adjusting Shrinkage Porosity 수축 기공 조절

사용자가 금속의 특성을 수정할 필요 없이 수축 다공성의 양과 크기를 미세 조정할 수 있도록 수축 조정 계수가 추가되었습니다. 계수를 사용하면 응고 중에 체적 수축의 양을 전화로 설정하거나 줄일 수 있습니다.

Gas Pressure and Venting Efficiency  가스 압력 및 밴트 효율성 검토

사용자가 충전 결함을 식별하고 다이캐스트에서 밴트 시스템을 설계하는 데 도움을 주기 위해 마지막 국부적인 가스 압력 및 밴트 효율성 검토 결과가 주조 시뮬레이션 출력에 추가되었습니다. 가스 압력은 셀이 금속으로 채워지기 전에 셀의 마지막 보이드 압력을 기록하며, 밴트 효율은 환기구를 배치하는 것이 밴트 위치에서 공기를 배출하는 데 가장 효율적인 영역을 보여 줍니다.

Databases 데이터베이스

주조 공정에서 일반적으로 사용되는 정보의 데이터베이스는 설정 오류를 줄이고 시뮬레이션 workflow 를 개선합니다.

Configurable Simulation Monitor 구성 가능한 시뮬레이션 모니터

시뮬레이션을 실행할 때 발생하는 중요하지만 종종 힘든 작업은 시뮬레이션을 모니터링하는 것입니다. FLOW-3D CAST를 사용하면 다음과 같은 일반적인 시뮬레이션 목표를 모니터링할 수 있습니다.

  • 게이트 속도
    주형 내 고상 분율
    최저/최고 용탕 온도 및 금형 온도
    다양한 프로브 위치에서의 온도
    시뮬레이션 진단(예:시간 스텝, 안정성 한계)

Plotting Capabilities  Plotting기능

이제 시뮬레이션 관리자에는 더 많은 플롯 기능이 포함됩니다. 플롯은 사용자가 구성할 수 있으며 구성은 다른 시뮬레이션에서 사용하기 위해 데이터베이스에 저장됩니다. 사용자는 시뮬레이션 런타임 그래프와 history-data 에서 모니터링할 이력 데이터 변수를 지정할 수 있습니다. 다중 변수를 각 그래프에 입력합니다.

Conforming Meshes

임의 형상의 활성 계산 영역을 정의할 수 있도록 적합한 메쉬 기능이 확장되었습니다. 이는 메쉬 블록이 준수할 수 있는 열린 볼륨과 솔리드 볼륨을 모두 포함하여 계산 도메인의 영역을 정의하는 meshing구성 요소라고 하는 새로운 유형의 지오메트리 구성 요소를 사용합니다.
메쉬 블록은 냉각 채널이나 공동에 선택적으로 조합할 수 있어 사용자가 이러한 기하학적 객체에 대해 최적의 해상도를 선택할 수 있습니다. 이제 확인할 수 있는 메쉬가 FAVORize 탭에 표시될 수 있습니다.

Under the Hood

FLOW-3D CAST의 많은 강력한 구성 요소들은 Solver Engine이라고 부르는 것 들에서 중요합니다. 아래에서는 이면에서 무거운 작업을 수행하는 데 도움이 되는 몇가지 중요한 사항을 설명합니다.

Thermal Die Cycling (TDC) Model TDC(열 다이 사이클)모델

열 다이 사이클 시뮬레이션의 주입/응고 단계는 균일하지 않은 캐비티 온도를 사용하여 개선할 수 있습니다. 이제 캐비티에 있는 금속의 초기 온도는 재시작 중에 채우기 시뮬레이션을 통해 지정하거나 초기 유체 영역을 사용하는 사용자 정의 분포에서 지정할 수 있습니다. 이 기능은 옵션으로 사용할 수 있는 균일한 초기 금속 온도에 비해 다이 사이클링의 열해석의 정확성과 현실성을 높여줍니다.

Heat Transfer Coefficient Calculator for Spray Cooling 분사 냉각을 위한 열 전달 계수 계산기

스프레이 유체와 다이 표면 사이의 열 전달 계수(HTC)를 추정하는 것은 어려운 일입니다. 계산 또는 측정을 통해 값을 사용할 수 있는 경우 사용자는 이러한 값을 스프레이 거리 및 각도의 함수로 직접 지정할 수 있습니다. 새로운 기능을 통해 노즐의 스프레이 액의 유량을 기준으로 HTC를 동적으로 계산할 수 있습니다. 단일 조정 계수를 통해 스프레이 유출량을 기준으로 HTC를 미세 조정할 수 있습니다.

냉각 열 응력과 변형 해석

FLOW-3D로 해석한 냉각 열 응력과 변형 시뮬레이션

Temperature contour after cooling

Flow Science, INC 소속의 AHG Isfahani & JM Brethour기 발표한 FLOW-3D로 냉각 열 응력과 변형을 시뮬레이션 한 결과입니다.

주조 업계에서는 고형화 및 냉각 중 열응력을 예측하고 그 결과로 변형되는 현상을 예측하는 것이 여전히 어려운 과제입니다.

플로우 사이언스는 최근 이러한 종류의 예측을 고객에게 제공하기 위해 FSI(Fuid-Structure Interaction)와 TSE(Thermal Stress Evolution) 모델을 개발했습니다. Fuid-cocus 모델링 포트폴리오에 솔리드 메카니즘이 추가됨에 따라 FLOW-3D*(www.fow3d.com)는 이제 하나의 소프트웨어 패키지에서 완전히 결합된 Auid-structure 상호 작용 모델을 제공하는 몇 안 되는 시뮬레이션 툴 중 하나가 되었습니다.

내장된 유한 요소 분석과 FLOW-3D의 입증된 자유 표면 Aows 기록은 주조 업계에 매력적인 선택입니다. 많은 사용자들이 주조 프로세스를 포함한 유체 구조 상호 작용 문제를 시뮬레이션하기 위해 여러 소프트웨어 패키지를 결합해 왔습니다.

모델 제작자는 Auid 역학을 별도로 해결한 다음 표면 경계 조건을 고체 역학적 패키지로 가져와 응력과 변형을 얻은 다음 변형된 형상을 다시 조류 해결기로 공급하고 주기는 계속됩니다.

이 프로세스의 수동 구현은 지루함을 증명하고 스크립트 및 래퍼를 통해 프로세스를 자동화하는 것은 어려운 일입니다. 게다가, 대부분의 경우 이 커플링은 사례별로 수행되어야 합니다.

FLOW-3D는 이 프로세스의 두 측면을 단일 시뮬레이션의 결과로 두 솔루션이 모두 제공되는 하나의 패키지로 원활하게 통합했습니다.

이 기사에서는 시뮬레이션 결과를 실제 주조 부품의 변형과 비교하는 경우를 제시한다. 부품 및 실험 결과는 Littler Diecast Corporation의 Mark Littler에 의해 제공되었습니다.

Introduction
In the casting industry, the ability to predict thermal stresses and resulting deformations during solidification and cooling continues to be a challenge. Flow Science has recently developed its fuid-structure interaction (FSI) and thermal stress evolution (TSE) models to provide these kinds of predictions to its customers. With the addition of solid mechanics to its existing fuid focused modeling port- folio, FLOW-3D*(www.fow3d.com) is now one of the few simulation tools that provide a fully coupled Auid-structure interaction model within one software package. The built- in finite element analysis along with FLOW-3D’s proven record in free surface Aows makes it an attractive choice to the casting industry. Many users have been coupling multiple software packages in order to simulate fuid-structure interaction problems including casting processes. The modeler solves the Auid mechanics separately, then imports the surface boundary conditions into a solid mechanics package, obtains the stresses and deformations and then feeds the deformed geometry back into the fow solver and the cycle continues. The manual implementation of this process proves tedious and automating it through scripts and wrappers is challeng- ing. Besides, most of the time, this coupling has to be done on a per case basis. FLOW-3D has seamlessly integrated both aspects of this process into one package where both solutions come out as the result of a single simulation. In this article, a case where the simulation results are compared to deformations from an actual cast part is pre- sented. The part and experimental results were provided by Mark Littler of Littler Diecast Corporation.

결론

FLOW-3D는 최근 고체 역학을 컴퓨팅하면서 Auid Aow를 동시에 시뮬레이션하는 기능을 추가했습니다.

업계에서 단일 시뮬레이션 내에서 완전히 결합된 Auid-Structure 상호 작용을 해결할 수 있는 소프트웨어 패키지는 몇 개 되지 않습니다. 이 모델은 선형 후크 모델을 기반으로 하지만 각 시간 단계에서 스트레스가 점진적으로 계산되기 때문에 큰 변형이 가능합니다.

이 방법에서, 각 작은 증가 동안의 응력-변형 관계는 대부분의 경우 선형으로 가정할 수 있다. 또한 다이 및 응고 합금의 온도 의존성 탄성 특성을 지정할 수 있습니다. 이 모델은 열 잔류 응력으로 인해 냉각 중에 부품이 원하는 형상에서 변형되는 주조 업계에 특히 유용합니다.

캐스터는 이러한 변형을 예측하고 다이를 아주 약간만 변화시켜 최종 변형 기하학이 원하는 형태가 되도록 수정합니다.

이 작업은 FLOW-3D 사용자에게 흥미로운 새로운 경로를 제시하며 향후 릴리즈에서 몇 가지 새로운 기능을 제공하는 토대가 됩니다.

그러한 노력에는 플라스틱 변형과 인접한 고체 구성 요소 간, 그리고 고체 구성 요소와 고체화된 Auid 영역 사이의 완전한 결합이 포함됩니다.

Conclusions

FLOW-3D has recently added the capability of simulta- neously simulating the Auid Aow while computing the solid mechanics. There are only a few software packages in the industry that can solve a fully coupled Auid-struc- ture interaction within a single simulation. Although the model is based on a linear Hookean model, large deformations are possible because the stress is computed incrementally during each time step. In this method, the stress-strain relationship during each small incre- ment can be assumed to be linear in most cases. Fur- thermore, temperature-dependent elastic properties of the die and solidified alloy can be specified. This model is particularly beneficial to the casting industry where thermal residual stresses cause the part to deform from the desired geometry during cooling. Casters can predict these deformations and correct for them by changing the die ever so slightly so that in fact the final deformed geometry is the desired shape. This work represents an exciting new path for FLOW- 3D users and serves as a foundation for several new capabilities in future releases. Such efforts will include plastic deformations and full coupling between neigh- boring solid components and between solid components and solidified Auid regions.

Active Simulation Control

실행중인 해석의 제어 파라미터는 History probes에서 사용자가 정의한 조건에 따라, 런타임 동안에 자동으로 변경 될 수 있습니다. History probes에 의해 기록된 시뮬레이션 변수는 경계 조건, mass source 및 General Moving Object 기능을 이용하여, 시간에 따른 개체의 동작을 제어하기 위해 사용될 수있습니다. 예를 들어, 고압다이캐스팅 해석에서 게이트에 설정한 History probes에 유체가 도달하면, 그 정보를 캡처하는 데이터 출력 주파수를 증가시켜 플런저의 속도를 고속으로 자동 전환 될 수있습니다. 고압다이캐스팅 해석은 유체가 게이트에 도달 할 때 자동으로 고속 전환됩니다. 이 프로세스는 새로운 실행 시뮬레이션 제어 기능을 통해 자동으로 진행됩니다. 저속 구간에서 플런저의 움직임은 trigger 슬리브의 용융물에 혼입되는 공기의 양을 최소화하기 위해 Barkhudarov 방법 1을 사용하여 계산됩니다. 이 결과는 훨씬 더 높은 품질의 주조품이 나올수 있도록 설계하는데 도움이 될 수 있습니다.
