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.

레이저 용접 수치해석 (FLOW-3D WELD)

FLOW-3D WELD Products

레이저 용접 수치해석 (FLOW-3D WELD)

FLOW-3D@ WELD는 레이저 용접 공정에 대한 정확한 시뮬레이션 기능을 제공하여 최적화된 공정을 개발하게 합니다. 더 나은 공정 제어를 통해 기공, 열 영향 영역을 최소화하고 미세 구조 변화를 제어할 수 있습니다.

레이저 용접 프로세스를 정확하게 시뮬레이션하기 위해 FLOW-3D@ WELD는 레이저 열원, 레이저-재료 상호 작용, 유체 흐름, 열 전달, 표면 장력, 응고, 다중 레이저 반사 및 위상 변화와 같은 모든 관련 물리 모델을 제공합니다.

Laser Welding

최근에는 뛰어난 생산성과 속도, 낮은 열 입력이 결합되어 기존의 용접 프로세스를 대체하는 레이저 용접 프로세스가 주목 받고 있습니다. 레이저 용접이 제공하는 장점은 용접강도가 좋고, 열 영향 부위가 작으며, 정밀도가 낮고 변형이 적으며, 강철, 알루미늄, 티타늄 및 이종 금속을 포함한 광범위한 금속 및 합금을 용접 할 수 있는 기능이 있습니다.

FLOW-3D@는 레이저 용접 공정에 대한 강력한 통찰력을 제공하고 궁극적으로 프로세스 최적화를 달성하는 데 도움이 됩니다.

보다 나은 프로세스 제어를 통해 기공을 최소화할 수 있습니다. 열 영향부위 및 미세조직을 제어가 가능합니다. FLOW-3D는 자유표면 추적 알고리즘을 통해 매우 복잡한 용접 POOL 시뮬레이션을 해석하는데 매우 적합합니다.

용접 모듈은 레이저 소스에 의해 생성된 Heat flux, 용융 금속에 대한 증발압력, shield gas 효과, 용융 풀의 반동압력 및 다중 레이저 반사와 같은 물리적 모델을 FLOW-3D에 적용하기 위해 개발되었습니다. 키홀 용접과 같은 현실적인 프로세스 시뮬레이션을 위해서는 모든 관련 물리적 현상을 적용하는 것이 중요합니다.

FLOW-3D는 레이저 용접의 conduction and keyhole 방식을 시뮬레이션 할 수 있습니다. 전 세계의 연구원들은 FLOW-3D를 사용하여 용접역학을 분석하고, 공정 매개 변수를 최적화하여 기공을 최소화하며, 레이저 용접공정에서의 dendrite 결정 성장 양상을 예측합니다.

Full Penetration Laser Welding Experiments

한국 카이스트와 독일 BAM은 16K kW레이저를 사용하여 10mm강판에 완전 침투 레이저 용접 실험을 수행하였습니다. CCD카메라의 도움을 받아 완전 용입 레이저 용접으로 형성된 상단 및 하단 용융풀 거동을 확인할 수 있었습니다. 그들은 또한 FLOW-3D 로 용접 공정 해석으로 해석과 실험결과의 경향이 일치하는 것을 알 수 있었습니다.

Laser Welding Porosity Case Study

General Motors, Michigan, 중국의 상하이 대학교는 용접 공정 변수, 즉 keyhole 용접에서 기공의 발생에 대해 용접 속도 및 용접 각도와 같은 공정 매개 변수가 미치는 영향을 알아보기 위해 협력하여 연구를 진행하였습니다.

레이저 용접된 Al 접합부 단면의 기공을 분석합니다. Keyhole이 유도 된 기공들은 유동 역학으로 인해 발생되고 균열을 일으킬 수 있습니다. 최적화 공정의 매개변수는 이러한 종류의 기공을 완화할 수 있습니다. FLOW-3D를 사용하여 연구원들은 증발 및 반동 압력, 용융풀, 온도에 따른 표면장력 및 Keyhole내의 다중 레이저 반사, 프레넬 흡수를 포함한 모든 중요한 물리적 현상을 설명했습니다.

연구진은 시뮬레이션 모델을 기반으로 Keyhole 용접에서 생성된 기공들의 주요 원인으로 불안정한 Keyhole을 규정하였습니다. 아래 이미지에서 볼 수 있듯이 뒤쪽 용융 풀의 과도한 재순환은 뒤쪽 용융 풀이 앞쪽 용융 풀 경계를 무너뜨리며 기공들을 생성시킵니다. 갇힌 공간이 증가하는 응고 전면에 의해 갇혔을때 기공들이 발생되었습니다.

용접 속도가 빠를수록 더 큰 keyhole이 생성되며 이로 인해, 보다 안정적인 keyhole이 생성됩니다. 연구진은 FLOW-3D를 사용하여 용접 속도와 용접 경사각으로 기공들의 생성을 완화시킬 수 있었습니다.

FLOW-3D 레이저분야 활용

FLOW-3D 레이저 용접분야 활용

FLOW-3D는 유체의 유동 및 열전달 수치 해석 소프트웨어이며, 자유표면(자유수면)을 가진 유체의 흐름을 정확하게 예측한다. FLOW-3D는 수 많은 물리적 유동 현상에 대한 시뮬레이션 모델을 제공하여, 설계 및 운영 단계에서 엔지니어가 쉽고 정확하게 판단할 수 있도록 해주기 때문에 수리, 주조, 기계, 항공, 용접, 적층 공정, 금속 3D 프린팅 등 여러 분야에서 사용되는 소프트웨어이다. 이번 호에서는 FLOW-3D의 다양한 활용 분야 중에서 레이저 용접 분야(Weld 모듈이 연계된 FLOW-3D Weld를 사용)에 대해 자세히 알아보고자 한다.

레이저 용접은 레이저 광선의 출력을 응용한 용접 방법을 말한다. 레이저 용접의 장점은 용접 강도가 좋고, 열 영향 부위가 작으며, 정밀도가 높고 변형이 적으며 강철, 알루미늄, 티타늄 및 이종 금속을 포함한 광범위한 금속 및 합금을 용접할 수 있다는 것이다.
FLOW-3D Weld는 이러한 레이저 용접 공정에 대해 정확한 결과를 얻게 해 주며, 엔지니어가 레이저 프로세스를 최적화하는데 도움을 준다. FLOW-3D Weld는 레이저 소스에 의해 생성된 Heat flux, 용융 금속에 대한 증발 압력, shield gas 효과, 다중 레이저 반사 등과 같은 물리적 모델을 적용하여 Conduction 용접, Keyhole 용접, Porosity, 용융풀 거동 등을 분석할 수 있다.
이번 호에서는 레이저 용접 프로세스 및 결과물을 최적화하기 위해 필요한 물리적 설정과 대표적인 레이저 용접 해석 예제를 설명하고자 한다.

레이저 광원

1. 레이저 광원
레이저 용접을 하는데 있어 레이저 광원의 설정이 필요하다. FLOW-3D Weld에서 사용되는 레이저 광원은 원통형과 원추형으로 설정할 수 있으며, <그림 1>과 같이 Heat flux를 일정한 상태 또는 가우시안 분포(Gaussian distribution)  형태로 나타낼 수 있다.

레이저 광원의 형태를 원추형으로, 가우시안 분포를 가지도록 Heat flux를 설정하면 <그림 2>와 같이 광원이 원추형으로 나타나며, 반경 거리에 따른 Heat flux의 에너지 밀도 차이도 확인할 수 있다.

그리고, <그림 3>과 같이 레이저 광원의 위치 좌표와 속도 벡터를 설정하면, 레이저의 위치에 대한 광원의 움직임 설정이 가능하다.

레이저 용접 수치해석(FLOW WELD)

Laser Welding

뛰어난 생산성과 속도, 낮은 열 입력이 결합되어 기존의 용접 프로세스를 대체하는 레이저 용접 프로세스가 있습니다. 레이저 용접이 제공하는 장점은 용접강도가 좋고, 열 영향 부위가 작으며, 정밀도가 높고 변형이 적으며 강철, 알루미늄, 티타늄 및 이종 금속을 포함한 광범위한 금속 및 합금을 용접 할 수 있는 기능이 있습니다.

FLOW-3D는 레이저 용접 공정에 대한 강력한 통찰력을 제공하고 궁극적으로 프로세스 최적화를 달성하는 데 도움이 됩니다. 보다 나은 프로세스 제어를 통해 다공성을 최소화할 수 있습니다. 열 영향부위 및 마이크로-구조를 제어합니다. FLOW-3D는 자유표면 추적 알고리즘으로 인해 매우 복잡한 용접 풀 시뮬레이션을 해석하는데 적합합니다. 용접의 추가 모듈은 레이저 소스에 의해 생성된 Heat flux, 용융 금속에 대한 증발압력, shield gas효과, 용융 풀의 반동압력 및 다중 레이저반사와 같은 물리적 모델을 FLOW-3D에 통합하기 위해 개발되었습니다. Keyhole 용접과 같은 현실적인 프로세스 시뮬레이션을 위해서는 모든 관련 물리적 현상을 포착하는 것이 중요합니다.

FLOW-3D는 레이저 용접의 conduction and keyhole 방식을 시뮬레이션 할 수 있습니다. 전 세계의 연구원들은 FLOW-3D를 사용하여 용접역학을 분석하고, 공정 매개 변수를 최적화하여 다공성을 최소화하며, 레이저 용접공정의 수지결정 성장을 예측합니다.

Full Penetration Laser Welding Experiments

한국 카이스트와 독일 BAM은 16KW레이저를 사용하여 10mm강판에 완전 침투 레이저 용접 실험을 수행하였습니다. CCD카메라의 도움을 받아 완전 용입 레이저 용접으로 형성된 상단 및 하단 용융지 역학을 포착할 수 있었습니다. 그들은 또한 FLOW-3D공정을 시뮬레이션하여 해석과 실험결과가 경향이 일치하는 것을 나타내었습니다.

Laser Welding Porosity Case Study

General Motors, Michigan, 중국의 상하이 대학교는 공정변수, 즉 keyhole 용접에서 다공성 발생 에 대해 용접속도 및 용접각도와 같은 공정 매개 변수가 미치는 영향을 이해하기 위해 협력하여 연구를 진행하였습니다.

 
레이저 용접된 Al 접합부 단면의 다공성을 용접합니다. Keyhole 유도 된 다공성은 유동 역학으로 인해 발생되고 균열을 일으킬 수 있습니다. 최적화 공정의 매개변수는 이러한 종류의 다공성을 완화할 수 있습니다. FLOW-3D를 사용하여 연구원들은 증발 및 반동 압력, 용융풀, 온도에 따른 표면장력 및 Keyhole내의 다중 레이저 반사, 프레넬 흡수를 포함한 모든 중요한 물리적 현상을 설명했습니다.

연구진은 시뮬레이션 모델을 기반으로 Keyhole용접에서 유도된 다공성의 주요 원인으로 불안정한Keyhole을 규정하였습니다. 아래 이미지에서 볼 수 있듯이 뒤쪽 용융 풀의 과도한 재순환은 뒤쪽 용융 풀이 앞쪽 용융 풀 경계를 무너뜨리며 다공성을 초래시킵니다. 갇힌 공간이 증가하는 응고 전면에 의해 포착되었을 때 다공성이 유도되었습니다.

용접 속도가 빠를수록 더 큰 keyhole이 생성되며 이로 인해보다 안정적인 keyhole이 구성됩니다. 연구진은 FLOW-3D를 사용하여 높은 용접 속도와 큰 용접 경사각으로 다공성을 완화시킬 수 있다고 예측했습니다.

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.

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.

[FLOW-3D 물리모델]General Moving Objects / 일반이동물체

General Moving Objects / 일반이동물체

Basics / 기초

The general moving objects (GMO) model in FLOW-3D can simulate rigid body motion, which is either userprescribed (prescribed motion) or dynamically coupled with fluid flow (coupled motion). If an object’s motion is prescribed, fluid flow is affected by the object’s motion, but the object’s motion is not affected by fluid flow. If an object has coupled motion, however, the object’s motion and fluid flow are coupled dynamically and affect each other. In both cases, a moving object can possess six degrees of freedom (DOF), or rotate about a fixed point or a fixed axis. The GMO model allows the location of the fixed point or axis to be arbitrary (it can be inside or outside the object and the computational domain), but the fixed axis must be parallel to one of the three coordinate axes of the space reference system. In one simulation, multiple moving objects with independent motion types can exist (the total number of moving and non-moving components cannot exceed 500). Any object under coupled motion can undergo simultaneous collisions with other moving and non-moving objects and wall and symmetry mesh boundaries (See Collision). The model also allows the existence of multiple (up to 100) elastic linear and torsion springs, elastic ropes and mooring lines which are attached to moving objects and apply forces or torques to them (See Elastic Springs & Ropes and Mooring Lines).

FLOW-3D에서 일반 이동물체인 GMO 모델은 강체운동을 모사(simulate)할 수 있는데, 이는 사용자가 기술하는 운동(지정운동)이거나 유체 유동과 동력학적인(결합된) 운동일 수 있다. 물체의 운동이 지정되면 유체 유동은 이 운동에 의해 영향을 받으나, 물체의 운동은 유체에 의해 영향을 받지 않는다. 그러나 물체가 결합된 운동을 하면 물체와 유체는 동역학적으로 연결되어 서로 영향을 미친다.

이 두 경우에 물체는6 자유도 운동을 할 수 있고, 고정된 점이나 축에 대해 회전할 수가 있다. GMO모델은 고정점이나 고정축의 위치를 임의로 설정할 수 있으나(이는 물체나 계산영역의 내부 또는 외부가 될 수 있다) 고정축은 공간좌표계의 좌표중의 하나에 평행하여야 한다.

어떤 모사(simulate)에서 고유의 운동형태를 갖는 다수의 운동물체가 존재할 수 있다(이동 및 고정된 물체의 전체수는500개를 초과하지 못한다). 결합운동을 하는 물체는 다른 이동/비이동 물체 그리고 벽과 대칭 경계 격자면에서 충돌할 수가 있다(충돌참조). 이 모델은 (100개까지) 다수의 탄성선형과 비틀림 스프링, 탄성로프와 이동 물체에 부착된 탄성력과 회전력을 갖는 계류선들을 표현할 수 있다(Elastic Springs & Ropes 와 Mooring Lines참조). .

In general, the motion of a rigid body can be described with six velocity components: three for translation and three for rotation. In the most general cases of coupled motion, all the available velocity components are coupled with fluid flow. However, the velocity components can also be partially prescribed and partially coupled in complex coupledmotion problems (e.g., a ship in a stream can have its pitch, roll and heave to be coupled but yaw, sway and surge prescribed). For coupled motion only, in addition to the hydraulic, gravitational, inertial and spring forces and torques which are calculated by the code, additional control forces can be prescribed by the user. The control forces can be defined either as up to five forces with their application points fixed on the object or as a net control force and torque. The net control force is applied to the GMO’s mass center, while the control torque is applied about the mass center for 6-DOF motion, and about the fixed point or fixed axis for those kinds of motions. The inertial force and torque exist only if the Non-inertial Reference Frame model is activated.

일반적으로 강체의 운동은 6개의 속도 성분으로 기술될 수 있다: 3개의 이동과3개의 회전. 가장 일반적인 결합 운동의 경우에, 모든 가능한 속도성분들은 유동과 연결되어 있다. 그러나 속도 성분들은 복잡한 결합운동 문제에서는 부분적으로 지정되고 일부는 결합될 수 있다(즉 유속내의 선박에서 pitch, roll and heave는 결합된 운동을 하고 yaw, sway and surge 는 지정될 수있다). 단 결합운동 문제에서는 코드 내에서 계산되는 수력, 중력, 관성 그리고 스프링 힘과 토크에 추가적인 조절할 수 있는 힘(control force) 들이 사용자에 의해 기술될 수 있다. 조절 힘(control force)들은 물체의 지정된 위치에 작용하는5개까지의 힘이나 또는 순수 힘과 토크로 정의 될 수 있다. 순수 조절힘은 GMO의 질량 중심에 작용하지만, 조절토크는6 자유도 운동의 질량중심에 대해 이런 운동을 하기 위한 고정축이나 점들에 대해 적용된다. 관성력과 토크는 단지 비 관성계 모델이 활성화되면 존재한다.

In FLOW-3D, a GMO is classified as a geometry component that is either porous or non-porous. As with stationary components, a GMO can be composed of a number of geometry subcomponents. Each subcomponent can be defined either by quadratic functions and primitives, or by STL data, and can be solid, hole or complement. If STL files are used, since GMO geometry is re-generated at every time step in the computation, the user should strive to minimize the number of triangle facets used to define the GMO to achieve faster execution of the solver while maintaining the necessary level of the geometry resolution. For mass properties, different subcomponents of an object can possess different mass densities.

FLOW-3D 에서 한 개의 GMO 는 다공질 또는 비 다공질의 형상요소로 간주된다. 정지된 구성요소에서와 같이 한 개의 GMO 는 다수의 형상 서브구성요소로 구성될 수 있다. 각 서브구성요소는 2차 함수와 기초 요소 또는 STL 데이터로 정의될 수 있고 고체, 공간 또는 이의 보완일 수 있다. 만약 STL 파일이 사용된다면 GMO 형상은 계산 중에 매 시간에서 재 생성되므로 사용자는 형상 정밀도에 필요한 수준을 유지하는 한편, 빠른 계산을 위해 GMO를 정의하는데 사용되는 삼각면의 수를 줄이려고 노력해야 한다. 질량물성을 위해 한 물체의 다른 서브구성요소는 다른 질량밀도를 가질 수 있다.

In order to define the motion of a GMO and interpret the computational results correctly, the user needs to understand the body-fixed reference system (body system) which is always fixed on the object and experiences the same motion. In the FLOW-3D preprocessor, the body system (x’, y’, z’) is automatically set up for each GMO. The initial directions of its coordinate axes (at t = 0) are the same as those of the space system (x, y, z). The origin of the body system is fixed at the GMO’s reference point which is a point automatically set on each moving object in accordance with the object’s motion type.

GMO 의 운동을 정의하고 계산결과를 정확히 이해하기 위해, 사용자는 항상 물체에 고정되고, 물체와 같은 운동을 하는 물체에, 고정된 기준계(물체계)를 이해할 필요가 있다. FLOW-3D 의 전처리에서 물체계(x’, y’, z’) 가 자동으로 각 GMO 에 대해 설정된다. 좌표축(t = 0에서) 의 초기방향은 공간계(x, y, z) 의 것과 같다. 물체계의 원점은 물체의 이동형상에 일치하는 각 이동체 상에 자동으로 설정된 GMO 의 기준점에 고정되어 있다.

 

The reference point is: 기준점은 다음과 같다.

  • the object’s mass center for the coupled 6-DOF motion;

결합된6자유도 운동의 질량중심

  • the fixed point for the fixed-point motion;

고정점 운동을 위한 고정점

  • a point on the fixed axis for the fixed-axis rotation;

고정축 회전을 위한 고정축 상의 점

  • a user-defined reference point for the prescribed 6-DOF motion.

기술된6자유도 운동을 위한 사용자 지정의 기준점

  • If the reference point is not given by users for the prescribed 6-DOF motion, it is set by the code at the mass center (if mass properties are given) or the geometry center (if mass properties are not given) of the object.

기준점이 기술된6자유도 운동을 위해 사용자가 지정하지 않으면 코드에 의해 질량중심 (질량물성이 주어지면) 또는 형상중심(질량물성이 안 주어지면)에 지정된다.

 

The GMO’s motion can be defined through the GUI using four steps:

GMO 운동은 4단계를 거쳐 GUI 를통하여 정의될수있다.

  1. Activate the GMO model;

GMO 모델을 활성화한다

  1. Create the GMO’s initial geometry;

GMO의 초기형상을 생성한다

  1. Specify the GMO’s motion-related parameters, and

GMO의 운동관련 변수들을 지정하고.

  1. Define the GMO’s mass properties.

GMO 질량물성을 정의한다

Without the activation of the GMO model in step 1, the object created as a GMO will be treated as a non-moving object, even if steps 2 to 4 are accomplished.

1단계의 GMO 모델 활성화가 없으면 2~4의 단계가 이루어져도 GMO 로 생성된 물체는 비 이동 물체로 간주될 것이다.

Step 1: Activate the GMO Model GMO 모델활성화

To activate the GMO model, go to Model Setup Physics Moving and simple deforming objects and check the Activate general moving objects (GMO) model box.

GMO 모델을 활성화하기 위해 Model Setup Physics Moving and simple deforming objects 로 가서 Activate general moving objects (GMO) model 박스를 체크한다.

The GMO model has two numerical methods to treat the interaction between fluid and moving objects: an explicit and an implicit method. If no coupled motion exists, the two methods are identical. For coupled motion, the explicit method, in general, works only for heavy GMO problem, i.e., all moving objects under coupled motion have larger mass densities than that of fluid and their added mass is relatively small. The implicit method, however, works for both heavy and light GMO problems. A light GMO problem means at least one of the moving objects under coupled motion has smaller mass densities than that of fluid or their added mass is large. The user may change the selection on the Moving and deforming objects panel or on the Numerics tab Moving object/fluid coupling.

GMO 모델은 유체와 움직이는 물체간의 상호작용을 다루기위해 두 수치해석법을 이용한다: explicit 방법과implicit 방법. 결합 운동이 없으면 두 방법은 동일하다. 결합된 운동에서는 외재적 방법은 일반적으로 무거운 GMO 문제에 사용된다, 즉 결합된 운동을 하는 모든 이동물체는 유체밀도보다 크고 이의 부가질량이 작을 경우이다. 그러나 내재적 방법은 무겁거나 가벼운 GMO 문제에 모두 사용된다. 가벼운 GMO 문제는 결합운동 시에 최소한 하나의 이동물체가 유체밀도보다 작고 이의 부가질량이 클 경우이다. 사용자는 Moving and deforming objects패널이나 Numerics tab Moving object/fluid coupling 상에서 선택을 바꿀 수 있다.

  1. Step 2: Create the GMO’s Initial Geometry GMO의 초기형상을 생성한다

 

In the Meshing & Geometry tab, create the desired geometry for the GMO components using either primitives and/or imported STL files in the same way as is done for any stationary component. The component can be either standard or porous. To set up a porous component, refer to Porous Media. Note that the Copy function cannot be used with geometry components representing GMOs.

정지상태의 구성요소 생성의 경우와 마찬가지로 Meshing & Geometry 탭에서 기초 요소와/또는 외부로부터의 STL 파일을 이용하여 GMO 구성요소의 원하는 형상을 생성한다. 구성요소는 standard이거나porous일 수 있다. 다공성요소를 설정하기 위해 Porous Media 를 참조하라. Copy 기능은 GMO를 나타내는 형상 구성요소에 사용할 수 없음에 주목한다.

Step 3: Specify the GMO’s Motion Related Parameters GMO의 운동관련변수들을 지정한다

The following section discusses how to set up parameters for prescribed and coupled 6-DOF motion, fixed-point motion and fixed-axis motion. The user can go directly to the appropriate part.

다음 섹션은 “지정되고 결합된 6자유도운동”, “고정점 운동과 고정축 운동을 위한 매개변수를 어떻게 설정하는지”에 대해 논한다. 사용자는 직접 해당부분을 참조할 수 있다.

Prescribed 6-DOF Motion 지정된 6자유도운동

In Meshing & Geometry Geometry Component (the desired GMO component) Type of Moving Object, select Prescribed motion. Go to Component Properties Type of Moving Object Moving Object Properties Edit Motion Constraints. Under Type of Constraint, select 6 Degrees of Freedom in the combo box.

Meshing & Geometry Geometry Component (the desired GMO component) Type of Moving Object 에서 Prescribed motion 을 선택한다. Component Properties Type of Moving Object Moving Object Properties Edit Motion Constraints 로 가서 Type of Constraint 밑에서 combo 박스에 있는 6 Degrees of Freedom 를 선택한다.

To define the object’s velocity, go to the Initial/Prescribed Velocities tab in the Moving object setup window. The prescribed 6-DOF motion is described as a superimposition of a translation of a reference point and a rotation about the reference point. The reference point can be anywhere inside or outside the moving object and the computational domain. The user needs to enter its initial x, y and z coordinates (at t = 0) in the provided edit boxes. By default, the reference point is determined by the preprocessor in two different ways depending on whether the object’s mass properties are given: if mass properties (either mass density or integrated mass properties) are given, then the mass center of the moving object is used as the reference point; otherwise, the object’s geometric center will be calculated and used as the reference point.

물체의 속도를 정의하기 위해 Moving object setup 의 창에 있는 Initial/Prescribed Velocities 탭으로 이동한다. 지정된 6자유도 운동은 기준점의 이동과 기준점에 대한 회전의 중첩으로 기술된다. 기준점은 이동체의 내부 또는 외부 그리고 계산영역 외부일 수도 있다. 사용자는 주어진 편집박스 내에 이의 초기 x, y 와 z 좌표값(t = 0에서)을 입력할 필요가 있다. 디폴트로 기준점은 물체의 질량 물성이 주어지는가에 따라 두 가지로 전처리 과정에서 결정된다: 질량물성(질량밀도나 전체질량물성)이 주어지면 이동체의 질량중심이 기준점으로 사용되고 아니면 이동체의 형상중심이 계산되고 기준점으로 이용된다.

With the reference point provided (or left for the code to calculate), users can define the translational velocity components for the reference point in space system and the angular velocity components (in radians/time) in body system. Each velocity component can be defined either as a sinusoidal or a piecewise linear function of time by making a selection in the corresponding combo box. For a constant velocity component, choose Non-Sinusoidal and simply enter its value in the corresponding input box (the default value is 0.0). If a velocity component is Non-sinusoidal and time-dependent, click on the corresponding Tabular button to open a data table and enter values for the velocity component and time. Alternatively, the user can also import a data file for the velocity component versus time by clicking Tabular Import Values. The file must have two columns of data which represent time and velocity from left to right and must have a csv extension. If the velocity component is sinusoidal in time, then enter the values for Amplitude, Frequency (in Hz) and Initial Phase (in degrees) in the input boxes.

기준점이 주어지면(또는 코드 내에서 계산이 되면) 사용자는 공간계 기준점에 대해 translational velocity components 를 그리고 물체계에서angular velocity components (radians/시간으로)를 정의할 수 있다. 각 속도 성분은 상응하는 combo box 에서 선택함으로써 사인파 또는 구간적 시간함수로써 정의될 수 있다. 일정 속도 성분에 대해서 Non-Sinusoidal 을 선택하고 단순히 상응하는 combo 박스에 값을 넣는다(디폴트 값은0이다). 속도성분이 Non-Sinusoidal 이고 시간의 함수이면 데이터 테이블을 열고 상응하는 Tabular 버튼을 클릭하고 속도성분과 시간을 넣는다. 다른 방법으로는 사용자가 Tabular Import Values를 클릭함으로써 속도성분대 시간의 데이터파일을 읽어 들일 수가 있다. 이 파일은 시간과 속도를 나타내는 좌로부터 우로의 두 데이터 열이 있어야 하며 csv 확장자를 가져야 한다. 속도 성분이 시간에 따른 사인파이면 입력박스에서의 Amplitude, Frequency (in Hz) 그리고 Initial Phase (in degrees) 값을 입력한다.

  •  
  • Users can set limits for the translational displacements of the object’s reference point in both negative and positive x, y and z directions in space system. The displacements are measured from the initial location of the reference point. During motion, the reference point cannot go beyond these limits but can move back to the allowed range after it reaches a limit. To set the limits for translation, go to the Motion Constraints tab and enter the maximum displacements allowed in the corresponding input boxes, using absolute values. By default, these values are infinite. Note the Limits for rotation is only for fixed-axis rotation thus cannot be set for 6-DOF motion.사용자는 공간계에서 음이나 양의 x, y 그리고 z 방향으로 물체 기준점의 이동변위를 제한할 수 있다. 변위는 기준점의 초기위치로부터 정해진다. 운동중에 기준점은 이 제한을 넘어갈 수 없지만 이 제한에 도달한 후에 허용된 범위만큼 돌아올 수 있다. 이동의 제한을 설정하기 위해 Motion Constraints 탭으로가서 절대값을 사용하여 상응하는 입력박스 안에 허용된 최대변위를 넣는다. the Limits for rotation 는 고정축 회전에만 해당하므로 6자유도 운동에는 지정될 수 없다.Prescribed Fixed-point Motion지정된 고정점운동In Meshing & Geometry Geometry Component (the desired GMO component) Component Properties Type of Moving Object, select Prescribed motion.

The velocity components to be defined are the x, y and z components of the angular velocity (in radians/time) in the body system. Each velocity component can be defined as either a sinusoidal or a piecewise linear function of time by making a selection in the corresponding combo box. For a constant velocity component, choose Non-Sinusoidal and simply enter its value in its input box (the default value is 0.0). If a velocity component is time-variant and Non-sinusoidal, click on the Tabular button to open a data table and enter the values for the velocity component and time. Alternatively, the user can also import a data file for the velocity component versus time by clicking Tabular Import Values. The file must have two columns of data which represent time and velocity component from left to right and must have a csv extension. If the velocity component is sinusoidal in time, then enter the values for Amplitude, Frequency (in cycles/time) and Initial Phase (in degrees) in the corresponding input boxes.

    Prescribed Fixed-Axis Motion

    In Meshing & Geometry Geometry Component (the desired GMO component) Component Properties Type of Moving Object, select Prescribed motion. Go to Moving Object Properties Edit Motion Constraints. Under Type of Constraint, select Fixed X-Axis Rotation or Fixed Y-Axis Rotation or Fixed Z-Axis Rotation in the combo box depending on which coordinate axis the rotational axis is parallel to.

Moving object properties Edit Motion Constraints 로 가서Type of Constraint밑에서 회전축이 어떤 좌표축에 평행인가에 따라 combo box 에있는 Fixed X-Axis Rotation 또는 Fixed Y-Axis Rotation 또는 Fixed Z-Axis Rotation 를 선택한다.

    Coordinates of the rotational axis need be given in two of the three input boxes for Fixed Axis/Point X Coordinate, Fixed Axis/Point Y Coordinate and Fixed Axis/Point Z Coordinate. For example, if the rotational axis is parallel to the z-axis, then the x and y coordinates for the rotational axis must be defined. Users can also set limits for the object’s rotational angle in both positive and negative directions. The rotational angle (i.e., angular displacement) is a vector and measured from the object’s initial orientation based on the right-hand rule. Its value is positive if it points in the positive direction of the coordinate axis which the rotational axis is parallel to. The object cannot rotate beyond these limits but can rotate back to the allowed angular range after it reaches a limit. To set the limits for rotation, in Motion Constraints Limits for rotation, enter the Maximum rotational angle allowed in negative and positive directions in the corresponding input boxes, using absolute values in degrees. By default, these values are infinite.

    회전축 좌표는 3개 Fixed Axis/Point X Coordinate, Fixed Axis/Point Y Coordinate Fixed Axis/Point Z Coordinate 중 2개의 입력박스에서 주어져야 한다. 예를 들면 회전축이 z 축에 평행 하다면 이 회전축의 the x 와 y 좌표가 정의 되어야 한다. 사용자는 물체의 양음 방향의 회전각도를 제한할 수 있다. 회전각 (즉, 각변위)은 벡터이며 오른손 법칙에 따른 물체의 초기 방향으로부터 측정된다. 이는 회전축에 평행한 좌표축의 양방향을 가리키면 양의 값이다. 물체는 제한 값을 지나 회전할 수 없지만 이 값에 도달한 후 허용된 각변위로 되돌아갈 수 있다. 회전의 제한을 설정하기 위해 Motion Constraints Limits for rotation 내에서 상응하는 입력박스에서 음이나 양의방향으로 허용된 Maximum rotational angle 을 입력한다. 이의 디폴트 값은 무한대이다.

To define the angular velocity of an object (in radians/time), go to Initial/Prescribed Velocities. The angular velocity can be defined either as a sinusoidal or a piecewise linear function of time by making a selection in the corresponding combo box. For a constant angular velocity, choose Non-Sinusoidal and simply enter its value in its input box (the default value is 0.0). If it is Non-sinusoidal in time, click on the corresponding Tabular button to open a data table and enter the values for the angular velocity and time. Alternatively, the user can also import a data file for the velocity component versus time by clicking Tabular Import Values. The file must have two columns of data which represent time and angular velocity from left to right and must have a csv extension. If the angular velocity is sinusoidal in time, then enter the values for Amplitude, Frequency (in cycles/time) and Initial Phase (in degrees) in the corresponding input boxes.

물체의 각속도(radians/시간으로)를 정의하기 위해 Initial/Prescribed Velocities 탭으로 간다. 각속도는 상응하는 combo box 에서 사인파 또는 구간적 시간함수로써 정의될 수 있다. 일정 각속도에 대해서 Non-Sinusoidal 을 선택하고, 이에 상응하는 combo box 에 단순히 값을 넣는다(디폴트 값은0.0이다). 이것이 Non-Sinusoidal 이고 시간의 함수이면 데이터 테이블을 불러와, 상응하는 Tabular 버튼을 클릭하고 각속도와 시간을 넣는다. 그렇지 않으면 사용자가 Tabular Import Values 를 클릭함으로써 속도 성분대 시간의 데이터 파일을 읽어 들일 수가 있다. 이 파일은 시간과 각속도를 나타내는 좌로부터 우로의 두 데이터 열이 있어야 하며 csv 확장자를 가져야 한다. 각속도가 시간에 따른 사인파이면 입력박스에서의 Amplitude, Frequency (in Hz) 그리고 Initial Phase (in degrees) 값을 입력한다.

Users need to define the initial velocities for the object. Go to the Initial/Prescribed Velocities tab. Enter the x, y, and z components of the initial velocity of the GMO’s mass center in X Initial Velocity, Y Initial Velocity and Z Initial Velocity, respectively. Enter the x’, y’ and z’ components of the initial angular velocity (in radians/time) in the body system in X Initial Angular Velocity, Y Initial Angular Velocity and Z Initial Angular Velocity, respectively. By default, the initial velocity components are zero.

사용자는 물체에 대한 초기속도를 정의해야 한다. Initial/Prescribed Velocities 탭으로 간다. 각 X Initial Velocity, Y Initial Velocity 그리고 Z Initial Velocity 로 GMO 질량중심의 초기속도의 x, y 와 z 성분값(t = 0에서)을 입력한다. 물체 계에서의 X Initial Angular Velocity, Y Initial Angular Velocity 그리고 Z Initial Angular Velocity (radians/시간으로)로 초기 각속도의 x’, y’ 및 z’ 성분값을 입력한다.

 

For coupled 6-DOF motion, user-prescribed control force(s) and torque exerting on the object can be defined either in the space system or the body system. They are combined with the hydraulic, gravitational, inertial and spring forces and torques to determine the object’s motion. There are two different ways to define control force(s) and torque: prescribe either a total force and a total torque about the object’s mass center or multiple forces with their application points fixed on the object. By default, all the control force(s) and torque are equal to zero.

결합된6자유도운동에서 물체에 미치는 사용자 지정 조절 힘과 토크는 물체계 또는 공간계에서 정의될 수 있다. 이들은 물체의 운동을 결정하는 수력, 중력, 관성력 스프링 힘 그리고 토크이다. 이 조절 힘과 토크를 정의하는 두 가지 방법이 있다: 물체의 질량중심에 대한 전체의 힘과 토크를 지정하거나 물체에 고정된 점들에 작용하는 다수의 힘들을 지정하는 것이다. 디폴트는 모든 조절 힘과 토크가0이다.

To prescribe total force and total torque, in the Control Forces and Torques tab, choose Define Total Force and Total Torque in the combo box. Further select In Space System or In Body System depending on which reference system the control force and torque are define in. If a component of the force or the torque is a constant, it can be specified in the corresponding edit box (default is zero). If it varies with time, then click on the Tabular button to bring up a data input table and enter the values for the component and time. The time-variant force and torque are treated as piecewise-linear functions of time during simulation. Alternatively, instead of filling the data table line by line, the user can also import a data file for the force/torque component versus time by clicking Tabular Import Values. The file must have two columns of data which represent time and the force/torque component from left to right and must have a csv extension.

전체의 힘과 토크를 지정하기 위해 Control Forces and Torques 탭 안의 combo box 에서 Define Total Force and Total Torque 를 선택한다. 추가로 조절 힘과 토크가 정의되는 기준계에 따른 In Space System 이나 In Body System 을 선택한다. 힘 또는 토크의 한 성분이 상수이면 상응하는 편집박스에 지정된다(디폴트는0). 이것이 시간에 따라 변하면 데이터 테이블을 불러오기 위해 상응하는 Tabular 버튼을 클릭하고 성분과 시간 값을 넣는다. 그렇지 않으면 한 줄씩 데이터 테이블을 채우는 대신에 사용자가 Tabular Import Values 를 클릭함으로써 force/torque component versus time 을 읽어 들일 수가 있다. 이 파일은 시간과 힘/토크를 나타내는 좌로부터 우로의 두 데이터 열이 있어야 하며 csv 확장자를 가져야 한다

If, instead, control forces and their application points need to be defined, then in the Control Forces and Torques tab choose Define Multiple Forces and Application Points in the combo box. Users can specify up to five forces. For each force, in the editor boxes, choose the force index (1 to 5) and then select Force components in Space System or Body System depending on which reference system the force is defined in. In field on the left, enter the initial coordinates (at t = 0) for the force’s application point. In the field on the right, prescribe components of the force in x, y and z directions of the body or space system. For a constant force component, enter its value in the corresponding edit box. If it varies with time, then click on the Tabular button to bring up a data input table and enter values for the force component versus time. Tabular force input is approximated with a piecewise-linear function of time. Alternatively, the user can import a data file for the force versus time by clicking Tabular Import Values. The file must have two columns of data which represent time and from left to right and must have a csv extension.

대신에 조절힘과 그 적용점들이 정의되어야 한다면 Control Forces and Torques 탭에서 combo box 안에 있는 Define Multiple Forces and Application Points 를 선택한다. 사용자는5개까지의 힘을 지정할 수 있다. 각 힘에 대해, 편집박스 내에서, force index(1에서 5) 를 선정하고 힘이 정의되는 기준계에 따라 Force components in 에서 Space System Body System 을 선택한다. 좌측 칸에 힘 적용점의 초기좌표(t=0에서)를 입력한다. 우측 칸에 물체 또는 공간계에 따른 x, y 그리고 z 방향에서의 힘의 성분을 넣는다. 힘 성분이 상수이면 그 값을 상응하는 편집박스에서 입력한다. 이것이 시간에 따라 변하면 데이터 테이블을 불러오기 위해 상응하는 Tabular 버튼을 클릭하고 힘성분 대 시간값을 넣는다. 이렇게 입력된 값들은 구간별 선형함수로 근사 된다.  다른 방법으로 사용자가 Tabular Import Values 를 클릭함으로써 힘과 시간에 대한 데이터파일을 읽어 들일 수가 있다. 이파일은 시간과 힘/토크를 나타내는 좌로부터 우로의 두 데이터 열이 있어야 하며 csv 확장자를 가져야 한다.

 

Motion constraints can be imposed to the object to decrease the number of the degrees of freedom to less than six. This selection is made by setting part of its translational and rotational velocity components as Prescribed motion while leaving the other components to coupled motion in Motion Constraints tab Translational and Rotational Options. Note that the translational and rotational components are in the space system and the body system, respectively. Then go to the Initial/Prescribed Velocities tab to define their values. A prescribed velocity component can be defined as either a sinusoidal or piecewise linear function of time in the combo box. For a constant velocity component, choose Non-Sinusoidal and enter its value in its input box (the default value is 0.0). If the velocity component is timedependent and non-sinusoidal, click on the Tabular button to open a data table and enter the values for the velocity component and time. Alternatively, the user can import a data file for the velocity component versus time by clicking Tabular Import values. The file must have two columns of data which represent time and the angular velocity component from left to right and must have a csv extension. It is treated as a piecewise-linear function of time in the code. If it is a sinusoidal function of time, instead, enter its Amplitude, Frequency (in Hz) and Initial Phase (in degrees) in the edit boxes.

Users can also set limits for displacements of the object’s mass center in both negative and positive x, y and z directions in the space system, measured from its initial location. The mass center cannot go beyond these limits but can move back to the allowed motion range after it reaches a limit. To specify these limits, open the Motion Constraints tab and in the Limits for translation area, enter the absolute values of maximum displacements in the desired coordinate directions. There are no Limits for rotation for an object with 6-DOF coupled motion.

사용자는 초기 조건으로부터 측정된 공간계에서의 음이나 양의 x, y 그리고 z 방향으로 물체 질량중심의 변위를 제한할 수 있다. 질량중심은 이 제한을 지나갈 수 없지만 이 제한에 도달한 후에 허용된 범위로 돌아올 수 있다. 이동의 제한을 설정하기 위해 Motion Constraints 탭을 열고 Limits for translation에서 원하는 좌표방향에서의 최대 절대변위 값을 넣는다. 6자유도 운동을 갖는 물체에 대한 Limits for rotation 은 없다.

 

Coupled Fixed-Point Motion 결합된 고정점운동

Under Type of Constraint, select Fixed point rotation in the combo box and enter the x, y and z coordinates of the fixed point in the corresponding input boxes. The Limits for rotation and Limits for translation cannot be set for fixed-point motion.

Further constraints of motion can be imposed to the object to decrease its number of degrees of freedom. This is done in the Motion Constraints tab by setting part of its rotational components as prescribed motion while leaving the others as coupled motion in the combo box for Translational and rotational options. Note that the rotational components are in the body system. By default, the prescribed velocity components are equal to zero. To specify a non-zero velocity component, go to the Initial/Prescribed Velocities tab. It can be defined as either a sinusoidal or a piecewise linear function of time by making selection in the corresponding combo box. For a constant velocity component, choose Non-Sinusoidal and simply enter its value in the input box (the default value is 0.0). If it is non-sinusoidal timedependent, click on the Tabular button to open a data table and enter the values for the velocity component and time. Alternatively, the user can import a data file for the velocity component versus time by clicking Tabular Import values. The file must have two columns of data which represent time and the angular velocity component from left to right and must have a csv extension. If the velocity component is a sinusoidal function of time, enter the values for Amplitude, Frequency (in Hz) and Initial Phase (in degrees) in the input boxes.

User-prescribed total torque exerting on the object can also be defined. They are combined with the hydraulic, gravitational, inertial and spring torques to determine the object’s rotation.

또한 사용자에 의해 지정된 물체에 작용하는 전체 토크가 지정될 수 있다. 이들은 물체의 회전을 결정하기 위해 수력, 중력, 관성력과 스프링에 의한 토크와 결합되어 있다.

In the Control Forces and Torques tab, choose Define Total Force and Total Torque in the combo box. Further, select In Space System or In Body System depending on which reference system the control torque is define in. If the torque is constant, it can be simply set in the provided edit box for its x, y and z components. For a time-dependent control torque, click the Tabular button to bring up data tables and then enter the values of time and the torque components. The control torque is treated as a piecewise-linear function of time. As an option, instead of filling the data table line by line, the user can also import a data file for the angular velocity versus time by clicking Tabular Import Values. The file must have two columns of data which represent time and velocity from left to right and must have a csv extension.

Coupled Fixed-Axis Motion  결합된 고정축운동

In Meshing & Geometry Geometry Component (the desired GMO component) Component Properties Type of Moving Object, select Coupled motion. Go to Moving Object Properties Edit Motion Constraints. Under Type of Constraint, select Fixed X-Axis Rotation or Fixed Y-Axis Rotation or Fixed Z-Axis Rotation in the combo box depending on which coordinate axis the rotational axis is parallel to.

Meshing & Geometry Geometry Component (the desired GMO component) Component Properties Type of Moving Object 에서 Coupled motion 을 선택한다. Moving Object Properties Edit Motion Constraints 로 가서 Type of Constraint 밑에서 회전축이 어느 좌표축과 평행한지에 따라 combo 박스에있는 Fixed X-Axis Rotation또는Fixed Y-Axis Rotation 또는 Fixed Z-Axis Rotation 를 선택한다.

 

Coordinates of the rotational axis need be given in two of the three input boxes for Fixed Axis/Point X Coordinate, Fixed Axis/Point Y Coordinate and Fixed Axis/Point Z Coordinate. For example, if the rotational axis is parallel to the z-axis, then the x and y coordinates for the rotational axis must be defined. Users can also set limits for the object’s rotational angle in both positive and negative directions. The rotational angle (i.e., angular displacement) is a vector and measured from the object’s initial orientation based on the right-hand rule. Its value is positive if it points to the positive direction of the coordinate axis which the rotational axis is parallel to. The object cannot rotate beyond these limits but can rotate back to the allowed angular range after it reaches a limit. To set the limits for rotation, in Motion Constraints Limits for rotation, enter the maximum rotational allowed in negative and positive directions in the corresponding input boxes, using absolute values in degrees. By default, these values are infinite.

회전축좌표는 3개 Fixed Axis/Point X Coordinate, Fixed Axis/Point Y Coordinate Fixed Axis/Point Z Coordinate 중 2개의 입력박스에서 주어져야 한다. 예를들면 회전축이 z 축에 평행하다면 이 회전축의 the x 와 y 좌표가 정의되어야 한다. 사용자는 물체의 양과 음 방향의 회전각도를 제한할 수 있다. 회전각 (즉, 각변위)은 벡터이며 오른손 법칙에 따라 물체의 초기 방향으로 부터 측정된다. 이것이 회전축에 평행한 좌표축의 양방향을 가리키면 양의 값이다. 물체는 제한 값을 지나 회전할 수 없지만 이 값에 도달한 후 허용된 각 변위로 되돌아갈 수 있다. 회전의 제한을 설정하기 위해 Motion Constraints Limits for rotation 내에서 상응하는 입력박스에서 음이나 양의방향으로 허용된 Maximum rotational angle 을 입력한다. 이의 디폴트 값은 무한대이다.

 

A definition of the initial angular velocity for the object is required. In the Initial/Prescribed Velocities tab, enter the initial angular velocity (in radians per time) in x, y or z direction in the corresponding input box in the Angular velocity components area, depending on the orientation of the rotational axis. The default value is zero.

User-prescribed total torque exerting on the object can be defined. They are combined with the hydraulic, gravitational, inertial and spring torques to determine the object’s rotation. In the Control Forces and Torques tab, choose Define Total Force and Total Torque in the combo box. If the torque is constant, it can be simply set in the provided edit box for x, y or z component of the torque, depending on direction of the coordinate axis which the rotational axis is parallel to. For a time-dependent control torque, click the corresponding Tabular button to bring up a data table and then enter the values of time and the torque. The control torque is treated as a piecewise-linear function of time in computation. As an option, instead of filling the data table line by line, the user can also import a data file for the torque versus time by clicking Tabular Import Values. The file must have two columns of data which represent time and torque from left to right and must have a csv extension. The torque about the fixed axis is the same in the space and body systems, thus the choice of In space system or In body system options makes no difference to the computation. User-prescribed total control force and multiple forces are not allowed for the fixed-axis motion.

물체의 초기 각속도 정의가 필요하다. Initial/Prescribed Velocities 탭에서 회전축의 방향에 따라 the Angular velocity components 면에서 x, y 및 z 방향으로 초기 각속도(시간당radians으로)를 넣는다. 디폴트는0이다. 사용자에 의해 지정된 물체에 작용하는 전체 토크가 정의될 수 있다, 이들은 물체의 회전을 결정하기 위해 수력, 중력, 관성력과 스프링에 의한 토크와 결합되어 있다. Control Forces and Torques 탭 안의 combo box 에서 Define Total Force and Total Torque 을 선택한다.  토크가 상수이면 회전축이 평행한 좌표축의 방향에 따라, 토크의 x, y 또는 z 성분을 위한 주어진 편집박스에서 단순히 지정된다. 따라 변하면 데이터테이블을 불러오기 위해 상응하는 Tabular 버튼을 클릭하고 시간과 토크를 넣는다. 제어토크는 계산시 구간 내 시간의 함수로 간주된다. 선택으로 한 줄씩 데이터 테이블을 채우는 대신에 사용자가 Tabular Import Values 를 클릭함으로써 토크대 시간의 파일을 읽어 들일 수 가 있다. 이 파일은 시간과 토크를 나타내는 좌로부터 우로의 두 데이터 열이 있어야 하며 csv 확장자를 가져야 한다. 고정축에 대한 토크는 공간과 시간계에서 같으므로 In space system 이나 In body system 의 선택은 계산에 차이가 없다. 사용자가 지정하는 전체 제어 힘과 다중의 힘은 고정축 운동에서는 허용되지 않는다.

Step 4: Specify the GMO’s Mass Properties GMO 질량물성을 정의한다

Definition of the mass properties is required for any moving object with coupled motion and is optional for objects with prescribed motion. If the mass properties are provided for a prescribed-motion object, the solver will calculate and output the residual control force and torque, which complement the gravitational, hydraulic, spring, inertial and user-prescribed control forces and torques to maintain the prescribed motion. To specify the mass properties, click on Mass Properties to open the dialog window. Two options are available for the mass properties definition: provide mass density or the integrated mass properties including the total mass, mass center and the moment of inertia tensor.

질량물성의 정의가 결합운동을 하는 이동체에 대해 필요하지만 지정운동을 하는 이동체에는 선택적이다. 지정운동체에 대해 질량 물성이 주어지면 solver 는 지정 운동을 유지하기 위해 중력, 수력, 관성력, 스프링 힘과 사용자 지정의 힘과 토크를 보완하는 잔여 조절 힘과 토크를 계산하고 출력할 것이다. 질량물성을 지정하기 위한 대화창을 열기 위해 Mass Properties를 클릭한다. 이를 위해 두 가지 선택이 있다: 질량밀도 또는 전체질량, 질량중심과 관성모멘트텐서를 포함하는 통합 질량 물성을 제공한다.

The option to provide mass density is convenient if the object has a uniform density or all its subcomponents have uniform densities. In this case, the preprocessor will calculate the integrated mass properties for the object. In the Mass Properties tab, select Define Density in the combo box and enter the density value in the Mass Density input box. By default, each subcomponent of the object takes this value as its own mass density. If a subcomponent has a different density, define it under that subcomponent in the geometry tree, Geometry Component Subcomponents Subcomponent (the desired component) Mass Density.

물체나 이 물체의 소 구성요소가 균일한 밀도를 가지면 질량밀도를 주는 선택이 편하다. 이 경우 전처리과정이 이에 대한 모든 통합 질량물성을 계산할 것이다. Mass Properties 탭에서 combo 박스에 있는 Define Density 를 선택하고 Mass Density 입력박스에서 밀도 값을 넣는다. 디폴트로 물체의 소 구성 요소의 밀도는 물체의 밀도와 같다. 만약에 소 구성요소가 다른 밀도를 가지면 이를 형상체계에 있는 Geometry Component Subcomponents Subcomponent (the desired component) Mass Density 소구성요소에서 정의한다.

 

The option to provide integrated mass properties is useful if the object’s mass, mass center and moment of inertia tensor are known parameters regardless of whether the object’s density is uniform or not. In the Mass Properties tab, choose Define Integrated Mass Properties in the combo box and enter the following parameters in the input boxes depending on the type of motion: Total mass, initial mass center location (at t = 0) and moment of inertia tensor about mass center for 6-DOF and fixed-point motion types;

통합 질량 물성의 사용은 물체의 밀도가 균일한지와 무관하게 물체의 질량, 질량중심, 관성모멘트 텐서 등이 알려진 변수일 경우에 유용하다. Mass Properties 탭에서 combo 박스에있는 Define Integrated Mass Properties 을 선택하고 운동형태에 따라 입력상자 안에 다음 변수들을 넣는다:

 

  • Total mass, initial mass center location (at t = 0) and moment of inertia about fixed axis for fixed-axis motion type.

전체 질량, 초기 질량중심 위치(t=0에서), 그리고 6자유도 및 고정점 운동 형태를 위한 질량중심에 관한 관성모멘트텐서

Output출력

For each GMO component, the solver outputs time variations of several solution variables that characterize the object’s motion. These variables can be accessed during post-processing in the General history data catalog and can be viewed either graphically or in a text format. For both prescribed and coupled types of motion with the mass properties provided, the user can find the following variables:

각 GMO 요소에 대해solver는 물체의 운동 특성을 보여주는 대여섯 개의 해석변수의 시간에 대한 변화를 출력한다. 이 변수들은 General history 데이터카탈로그에서 후처리중에 텍스트나 도식으로 볼 수 있다. 주어진 질량을 갖는 지정과 결합운동에 대해 사용자는 다음 변수들을 이용할 수가 있다.

  1. Mass center coordinates in space system공간계 내의 질량중심좌표
  2. Mass center velocity in space system공간계 내의 질량중심 속도
  3. Angular velocity in body system물체계 내의 각속도
  4. Hydraulic force in space system공간계 내의 수리력
  5. Hydraulic torque in body system물체계 내의 수리토크
  6. Combined kinetic energy of translation and rotation 이동과 회전의 결합운동에너지

There will be no output for items 1, 2 and 6 for any prescribed-motion GMO if the mass properties are not provided. Additional output of history data include:

As an option, the history data for a GMO with 6-DOF motion can also include the buoyancy center and the metacentric heights for rotations about x and y axes of the space system, which is useful for stability analysis of a floating object. Go to Geometry Component (the desired moving object) Output Buoyancy Center and Metacentric Height, and select Yes. The buoyancy center is defined as the mass center of the fluid displaced by the object. The metacentric height (GM) is the distance from the gravitational center (point G) to the metacenter (point M). It is positive (negative) if point G is below (above) M.

선택사항으로 GMO 6자유도의 이력데이터는 부력중심과 부력물체의 안정성 해석에 유용한 공간계의 x와 y 축에 대한 회전을 위한 metacentric 높이를 포함한다. Geometry Component (the desired moving object) Output Buoyancy Center and Metacentric Height 로가서 Yes 를 선택한다. 부력 중심은 물체에 의해 배수된 부분을 차지하는 유체의 질량중심으로 정의된다. The metacentric height (GM) 은 중력중심(점 G) 에서 metacenter (점M)까지이다. 점 G가 M보다 밑(위)이면 양(음)이다.

 

GMO components can participate in heat transfer just like any stationary solid component. When defining specific heat of a GMO component, Component Properties Solid Properties Density*Specific Heat must be given.

GMO 요소는 여느 정지 고체 요소와 같이 열전달을 포함 할 수 있다. GMO 요소의 비열을 정의할 때 Component Properties Solid Properties Density*Specific Heat 가 주어져야 한다.

 

Two options are available when defining heat sources for a GMO component: use the specific heat flux, or the total power. When the total power is used, the heat fluxes along the open surface of the moving object are adjusted at every time step to maintain a constant total power. If the surface area varies significantly with time, so will the heat fluxes. When the specific heat is used instead, then the fluxes will be constant, but the total power may vary as the surface area changes during the object’s motion. To define heat source for a GMO component, go to Component Properties Solid Properties Heat Source type Total amount or Specific amount.

GMO 요소의 열 소스를 정의할 때 두 가지 선택이 있다: 비열유속 또는 전체 일률(power)를 사용하는 것이다. 전체 일률이 사용되면 이동체의 개표면을 통한 열 유속은 일정 전체 일률을 유지하기 위해 매 시간 단계 마다 조정된다. 표면적이 시간에 따라 상당히 변하면 열유속도 그러할 것이다. 대신에 비열이 사용되면 열 유속은 일정할 것이고 전체일률은 표면적이 이동체의 운동에 따라 변할 때 변할 수도 있다. GMO 요소의 열소스를 정의하기 위해 to Component Properties Solid Properties Heat Source type Total amount or Specific amount 로 간다.

 

Mass sources/sinks can also be defined on the open surfaces of a GMO component. Details can be found in Mass

Sources. 질량소스나 싱크 또한 GMO 요소의 개표면 상에 정의될 수 있다. 자세한 것은 in Mass Sources 에서 볼 수 있다.

Although the GMO model can be used with most physical models and numerical options, limitations exist. To use the model properly, it is noted that

GMO 모델은 대부분의 다른 물리적 모델이나 수치해석 선택과 같이 사용될 수 있지만 제한이 따른다. 모델을 제대로 사용하기 위해 다음 사항들에 유의한다.

  • For coupled motion, the explicit and implicit GMO methods perform differently. The implicit GMO method works for both heavy and light moving objects. The explicit GMO method, however, only works for heavy object problems (i.e., the density of moving object is higher than the fluid density).

결합운동에 대해 내재적과 외재적 GMO 방법은 다르게 작동한다. 내재적 GMO 방법은 무겁거나 가벼운 이동물체에 이용될 수 있지만 외재적 GMO 방법은 무거운 물체의 이동에만 이용한다(즉, 이동물체의 밀도가 유체의 밀도보다 크다).

  • When the explicit GMO method is used, solution for fully coupled moving objects may become unstable if the added mass of the fluid surrounding the object exceeds the object’s mass.

외재적 GMO 방법이 사용될 때 물체 주위 유체의 부가질량이 물체의 질량보다 크면 완전결합 이동물체의 해석은 불안정하게 된다.

  • If there are no GMO components with coupled motion, then the implicit and explicit methods are identical and the choice of one makes no difference to the computational results.

결합운동을 하는 GMO 요소가 없으면 내재적과 외재적 방법은 같고 어느 하나를 사용해도 계산결과에 차이가 없다.

  • The implicit method does not necessarily take more CPU time than the explicit method, even though the former required more computational work, because it improves numerical stability and convergence, and allows for larger time step. It is thus recommended for all GMO problems.

내재적 방법은 수치(해석) 안정성과 수렴이 개선되고 더 큰 시간 단계를 가능하게 해주기 때문에 더 많은 계산을 필요로 하지만 외재적 방법보다 항상 더 많이 CPU시간을 필요로 하지는 않는다. 따라서 모든 문제에 권장된다.

  • It is recommended that the limited compressibility be specified in the fluid properties to improve numerical stability by reducing pressure fluctuations in the fluid.

유체내의 압력 변동을 줄임으로써 수치해석안정성을 증가시키기 위해 제한된 압축성이 유체 물성에서 지정되도록 권장된다.

  • In the simulation result, fluctuations of hydraulic force may exist due to numerical reasons. To reduce these fluctuations, the user can set No f-packing for free-surface problems in Numerics Volume of fluid advection Advanced options and set FAVOR tolerance to 0.0001 in Numerics Time-step controls Advanced Options Stability enhancement. It is noted that an unnecessarily small FAVORTM tolerance factor can cause small time steps and slow down the computation.

모사(simulate)결과에서 수리력의 변동이 수치적인 이유로 존재할 수 있다. 이 변동을 줄이기 위해 사용자는 Numerics Volume of fluid advection Advanced options 에서 자유표면 문제에 대해 No f-packing 을 지정하고 FAVOR tolerance Numerics Time-step controls Advanced Options Stability enhancement 에서 0.0001로 지정할 수 있다. 불필요하게 작은 FAVORTM tolerance 인자는 작은시간 단계를 발생시키고 계산을 더디게 할 수 있다.

  • In order to calculate the fluid force on a moving object accurately, the computational mesh needs to be reasonably fine in every part of the domain where the moving object is expected to be in contact with fluid.

이동물체에 대한 유체의 힘을 정확히 계산하기 위해 이동체가 유체와 접촉할 것으로 예상되는 영역내의 모든 부분에서 적절히 미세한 계산격자를 사용해야한다.

  • An object can move completely outside the computational domain during a computation. When this happens, the hydraulic forces and torques vanish, but the object still moves under actions of gravitational, spring, inertial and control forces and torques. For example, an object experiences free fall outside the domain under the gravitational force in the absence of all other forces and torques.

물체는 계산 동안에 완전히 계산영역 외부로 이동할 수 있다. 이럴 경우 수리력과 토크는 사라지지만 물체는 중력, 스프링힘, 관성력 및 조절 힘과 토크의 영향으로 움직인다. 예를 들면 물체는 모든 다른 힘과 토크가 없는 경우에 중력장 안에 있는 영역외부에서 자유낙하를 할 것이다.

  • If mass density is given, then the moving object must initially be placed completely within the computational domain and the mesh around it should be reasonably fine so that its integrated mass properties (the total mass, mass center and moment of inertia tensor) can be calculated accurately by the code

질량밀도가 주어지면 초기에 물체가 완전히 계산영역 내에 위치하고 있어야 하고 이 주변의 격자는 적절히 미세하게 하여 이의 통합 질량물성(전체질량, 질량중심 그리고 관성모멘트텐서)이 이 코드에 의해 정확히 계산될 수 있어야 한다.

  • If a moving object is composed of multiple subcomponents, they should have overlap in places of contact so that no unphysical gaps are created during motion when the original geometry is converted to area and volume fractions. If different subcomponents are given with different mass densities, this overlap should be small to avoid big errors in mass property calculation.

이동체가 다수의 소 구성요소로 이루어져 있다면 원래 형상이 면적과 체적율로 전환될 때 이들은 접촉부에 중첩이 있어야만 이동 시에 실제로 존재하지 않은 간격이 발생 안 한다. 다른 소구성요소가 다른 질량밀도로 주어지면 이 간격은 질량물성 계산시 큰 에러를 줄이기 위해 작아야 한다.

  • A moving object cannot be of a phantom component type like lost foam or a deforming object.

이동체는 lost foam 이나 변형물체 같은 phantom 구성요소가 될 수 없다.

  • The GMO model works with the electric field model the same way as the stationary objects, but no additional forces associated with electrical field are computed for moving objects.

GMO 모델은 정지 물체와 같은 전장모델과 이용할 수 있으나, 전장 관련 추가적 힘은 계산되지 않는다.

  • If a GMO is porous, light in density and high in porous media drag coefficients, then the simulation may experience convergence difficulties.

GMO가 밀도가 가볍고 다공매질 저항계수가 큰 다공질이면 모사(simulate)에 수렴의 어려움이 있을 수 있다.

  • A Courant-type stability criterion is used to calculate the maximum allowed time-step size for GMO components. The stability limit ensures that the object does not move more than one computational cell in a single time step for accuracy and stability of the solution. Thus the time step is also limited by the speed of the moving objects during computation.

GMO 구성요소에 대해 Courant 형의 안정성 기준이 최대허용 시간 단계 크기를 계산하도록 이용된다. 안정성 제한은 해석의 정확성과 안정성을 위해 물체가 하나의 시간 단계에 하나 이상의 계산 셀을 지나가지 않도록 보장하는 것이다. 그러므로 시간 단계는 계산시 또한 이동체의 속도에 의해 제한된다.

Note:

  • Time-Saving Tip: For prescribed motion, users can preview the object motion in a so-called “dry run” prior to the full flow simulation. To do so, simply remove all fluid from the computational domain to allow for faster execution. Upon the completion of the simulation the motion of the GMO objects can be previewed by post-processing the results. 시간절약팁: 지정운동에서 사용자는 실제 전체 유동 계산 전에 소위 “dry run” 이라는 형태로 GMO 물체의 운동을 미리 볼 수 있다. 이러기 위해 빠른 계산을 하기 위해 계산영역 내로부터 모든 유체를 단순히 제거한다. 모사(simulate)가 끝나면 운동은 결과를 후처리함으로써 미리 볼 수 있다.
  • The residual forces (and torques) are computed for the directions in which the motion of the object is prescribed/constrained. They are defined as the difference between the total force on an object (computed from the prescribed mass*acceleration) and the computed forces on the object from pressure, shear, gravity, specified control forces, etc. As such, they represent the force required to move the object as prescribed.

잔류력(그리고 토크)은 물체의 이동이 지정되거나 제약되는 방향으로 계산된다. 이들은 물체에 작용하는 전체 힘(지정 질량*가속도로부터 구해지는)과 압력, 전단력, 중력, 지정된 조절력 등으로부터 물체에 가해지는 계산된 힘과의 차이로 정의된다.

Collision충돌

The GMO model allows users to have multiple moving objects in one problem, and each of them can possess independent type of coupled or prescribed motion. At any moment of time, each object under coupled motion can collide with any other moving objects (of a coupled- or prescribed-motion type), non-moving objects as well as wall- and symmetry-type mesh boundaries. Without the collision model, objects may penetrate and overlap each other.

GMO 모델에서 사용자는 한 문제에서 다수의 이동체를 지정할 수 있고 각 이동체는 결합 또는 지정된 별도 운동을 할 수가 있다. 어느 순간에서 결합 운동을 하는 각 물체는 벽 또는 대칭형 격자 경계뿐만 아니라 다른 이동체들(결합운동 이나 지정운동을 하는), 그리고 정지하고 있는 물체와 충돌할 수 있다.  충돌모델 없으면 물체는 각기 침투하거나 중첩될 수가 있다.

The GMO collision model is activated by selecting Physics Moving and simple deforming objects Activate collision model. It requires the activation of the GMO model first, done in the same panel. For a GMO problem with only prescribed-motion objects, it is noted that the collision model has no effect on the computation: interpenetration of the objects can still happen.

GMO 충돌모델은 Physics Moving and simple deforming objects Activate collision model 를 선택함으로써 활성화된다. 먼저 같은 패널에서 GMO 모델을 활성화한다. 단지 지정된 운동을 하는 GMO 물체 문제에 대해 충돌모델은 계산에 영향을 안 미친다는 것을 주목한다: 그래도 물체의 침투는 가능하다.

The model allows each individual collision to be fully elastic, completely plastic, or partially elastic, depending on the value of Stronge’s energetic restitution coefficient, which is an input parameter. In general, a collision experiences two phases: compression and restitution, which are associated with loss and recovery of kinetic energy. The Stronge’s restitution coefficient is a measure of kinetic energy recovery in the restitution phase. It depends on the material, surface geometry and impact velocity of the colliding objects. The range of its values is from zero to one. The value of one corresponds to a fully elastic collision, i.e., all kinetic energy lost in the compression is recovered in the restitution (if the collision is frictionless). Conversely, a zero restitution coefficient means a fully plastic collision, that is, there is no restitution phase after compression thus recovery of the kinetic energy cannot occur. A rough estimate of the restitution coefficient can be conducted through a simple experiment. Drop a sphere from height h0 onto a level anvil made of the same material and measure the rebound height h. The restitution coefficient can be obtained as h/h0. In this model, the restitution coefficient is an object-specific constant. A global value of the restitution coefficient that applies to all moving and non-moving objects is set in Physics Moving and simple deforming objects Coefficient of restitution.

입력 변수인 Stronge 의 에너지 반발계수의 값에 따라 모델은 물체의 완전탄성, 완전소성 또는 탄성의 각기 충돌을 다룰 수 있다. 일반적으로 충돌은 두 단계로 나뉜다: 압축과 반발이며 이들은 운동에너지의 손실및 회복과 연관되어 있다. Stronge 의 반발계수는 반발단계에서의 에너지회복의 척도이다. 이는 물질, 표면형상 그리고 충돌하는 물체의 충격속도에 의존한다.

이값은 0과1사이이다. 1은 완전탄성충돌이며 압축에서 손실된 모든 운동에너지가 반발에서 회복된다(충돌에마찰이없다면). 역으로, 0의 반발계수는 완전소성충돌로 즉 압축 후에 반발이 없으며 운동에너지의 회복은 일어나지 않는다. 반발계수의 개략 추정치는 단순한 실험을 통해 얻어질 수 있다.

높이 h0에서 구를 같은 재질로 만들어진 anvil (모루?)위로 떨어뜨려 반발높이 h 를 측정한다. 반발계수는 h/h0로얻어진다. 이모델에서 반발계수는 물질에 특정한 상수이다. 모든 이동과 비 이동물체에 적용되는 반발계수의 포괄적인 값은 Physics Moving and simple deforming objects Coefficient of restitution 에서 지정된다.

 

Friction can be included at the contact point of each pair of colliding bodies by defining the Coulomb’s friction coefficient. A global value of the friction coefficient that applies to all collisions is set in Physics General moving objects Coefficient of friction. Friction forces apply when the friction coefficient is positive; a collision is frictionless for the zero value of the friction coefficient, which is the default. The existence of friction in a collision always causes a loss of kinetic energy.

마찰은 Coulomb 마찰계수를 정의함으로써 충돌하는 각 물체의 접촉 점에 작용한다. 모든 충돌에 적용되는 마찰계수의 포괄적 값은 Physics General moving objects Coefficient of friction 에서 설정된다. 마찰력은 마찰계수가 양일 경우 작용한다; 충돌시 마찰계수가0일 경우 마찰력이 없고, 이는 디폴트이다. 충돌 시 마찰력의 존재는 항상 운동에너지의 손실을 뜻한다.

 

The global values of the restitution and friction coefficients are also used in the collisions at the wall-type mesh boundaries, while collisions of the moving objects with the symmetry mesh boundaries are always fully elastic and frictionless.

포괄적 마찰 및 반발계수는 또한 벽 형태의 경계에서 충돌이 발생할 경우에도 사용될 수 있으나 이동체의 대칭격자 경계와의 충돌은 항상 완전탄성이고 마찰이 없다.

 

The object-specific values for the restitution and friction coefficients are defined in the tab Model Setup Meshing & Geometry. In the geometry tree on the left, click on Geometry Component (the desired component) Component Properties Collision Properties and then enter their values in the corresponding data boxes. If an impact occurs between two objects with different values of restitution coefficients, the smaller value is used in that collision calculation. The same is true for the friction coefficient.

물체에 특정한 반발 및 마찰계수는 탭 Model Setup Meshing & Geometry 에서 정의된다. 좌측의 형상체계에서 on Geometry Component (the desired component) Component Properties Collision Properties 를 클릭하고 상응하는 데이터박스에 그 값들을 입력한다. 다른 반발계수를 갖는 두 물체 사이에 충격이 발생하면 그 충돌 계산에 작은 마찰계수 값이 이용된다. 이는 마찰의 경우에도 마찬가지이다.

Continuous contact, including sliding, rolling and resting of an object on top of another object, is simulated through a series of small-amplitude collisions, called micro-collisions. Micro-collisions are calculated in the same way as the ordinary collisions thus no additional parameters are needed. The amplitude of the micro-collisions is usually small and negligible. In case the collsion strength is obvious in continuous contact, using smaller time step may reduce the collision amplitude.

미끄러짐, 회전, 및 타물체상에 정지하고 있는 물체를 포함하는 지속적인 접촉은 미세충돌이라고 불리는 일련의 소 진폭 충돌에 의해 모사(simulate)된다. 미세 충돌은 추가적인 매개변수 필요 없이 보통충돌과 같은 방식으로 계산된다. 충돌강도가 지속적 접촉에서 현저한 경우 더 작은 시간간격을 시용하는 것이 충돌 진촉을 감소시킬지도 모른다.

 

If the collision model is activated but the user needs two specific objects to have no collision throughout the computation, he can open the text editor (File Edit Simulation) and set ICLIDOB(m,n) = 0 in namelist OBS, where m and n are the corresponding component indexes. An example of such a case is when an object (component index m) rotates about a pivot – another object (component index n). If the former has a fixed-axis motion type, then calculating the collisions with the pivot is not necessary. Moreover, ignoring these collisions makes the computation more accurate and more efficient. If no collisions between a GMO component m with all other objects and mesh boundaries are desired, then set ICLIDOB(m,m) to be zero. By default, ICLIDOB(m,n) = 1 and ICLIDOB(m,m) = 1, which means collision is allowed.

충돌모델이 활성화되고 시용자가 모사(simulate)동안에 충돌하지 않는 두 특정 물체를 필요로 하면 텍스트편집(File Edit Simulation) 을 열어 namelist OBS 에서 ICLIDOB(m,n) = 0 를 지정하는데, 여기서 m n 은 상응하는 구성 요소 색인이다.

이런 예는 한 물체(component index m)가 경첩축인 다른 물체(component index n)에대해 회전할 경우이다. 전자가 고정축에 대한 운동형태이면 경첩 축과의 충돌은 계산할 필요가 없다. 더구나 이런 충돌을 무시하는 것이 계산상 더 정확하고 효율적이다.

한 GMO component 구성요소 m 과 모든 다른 물체나 격자 경계와의 충돌이 없다면 ICLIDOB(m,m) 를 0으로 지정한다. 디폴트는 ICLIDOB(m,n) = 1 이며 이는 충돌이 허용됨을 뜻한다.

 

To use the model prpperly, users should be noted that

모델을 적절히 사용하기 위해서 사용자는 다음에 주목한다.

  • The collision model is based on the impact theory for two colliding objects with one contact point. If multiple contact points exist for two colliding objects (e.g. surface contact) or one object has simultaneous contact with more than one objects, object overlap may and may not occur if the model is used, varing from case to case.

충돌모델은 한 접촉점을 갖는 두 물체의 충돌이론에 의거한다. 이 모델 사용시 두 물체의 충돌에 다수의 접촉점이 존재(즉 표면접촉같이)하거나 한 물체가 동시에 다른 물체들과 충돌하면 경우에 따라 중첩이 발생할 수도 있고 안 할 수도 있다.

  • To use the model, one of the two colliding object must be under coupled motion, and the other can have coupled or prescribed motion or no motion. The coupled motion can be 6-DOF motion, translation, fixed-axis rotation or fixed-point rotation. For other constrained motion, (e.g., rotation is coupled in one direction but prescribed in another direction), the model is not valid, and mechanical energy of the colliding objects may have conservation problem.

이 모델사용 시 두 충돌 물체중의 하나는 결합운동을 하여야 하고 다른 물체는 결합 또는 지정 운동 또는 정지하고 있을 수 있다. 결합운동은 6자유도 운동일 수 있다(이동, 고정축 또는 고정점 회전). 다른 구속 운동(즉, 한 방향에서는 결합 운동이지만 다른 방향에서는 지정 운동)에서 이 모델은 유효하지 않고 충돌물체의 역학에너지는 보존문제가 발생할는지도 모른다.

  • The model works with and without existence of fluid in the computational domain. It is required, however, that the contact point for a collision be within the computational domain, whereas the colliding bodies can be partially outside the domain at the moment of the collision. If two objects are completely outside the domain, their collision is not detected although their motions are still tracked.

이 모델은 계산 영역 내 유체의 존재 유무에 상관없이 작동한다. 그러나 충돌 시 접촉점은 계산 영역 내에 존재해야 하나 충돌체는 충돌 시 부분적으로 영역외부에 있어도 된다. 두 물체가 완전히 영역 외부에 있으면 이들의 운동은 그래도 추적되지만 충돌은 감지되지 못한다.

  • Collisions are not calculated between a baffle and a moving object: they can overlap when they contact.

이동물체와 배플간의 충돌은 계산되지 않는다: 이들이 접촉하면 중첩될 수 있다.

The model does not calculate impact force and collision time. Instead, it calculates impulse that is the product of the two quantities. Therefore, there is no output of impact force and collision time.

이 모델은 충격 힘과 충돌시간은 계산하지 않는다. 대신에 두 양의 곱인 impulse 를계산한다. 그러므로 충격 힘과 충돌시간에 대한 출력이 없다.

PQ2 Analysis PQ2 해석

PQ2 analysis is important for high pressure die casting. The goal of the PQ2 analysis is to optimally match the die’s designed gating system to the part requirements and the machine’s capability. PQ2 diagram is the basic tool used for PQ2 analysis.

PQ2 해석은 고압주조에서 중요하다. 이 해석의 목적은 부품 요건 및 기계의 용량에 따른 다이의 설계된 게이트 시스템을 최적화시키기 위한 것이다. PQ2 도표는 PQ2해석을 위한 기본 도구이다.

According to the Bernoulli’s equation, the metal pressure at the gate is proportional to the flow rate squared:

베르누이 정리에 의하면 게이트에서의 금속압력은 유량의 제곱에 비례한다.

P Q2                                                                                     (11.5)

where: 여기서

  • P is the metal pressure at the gate, and P 는 게이트에서의 압력이며
  • Q is the metal flow rate at the gate. Q 는 게이트에서의 유량이다.
  • The machine performance line follows the same relationship. 기계성능 곡선도 같은 관계를 따른다.

Based on the die resistance, machine performance, and the part requirements, an operating windows can be determined from the PQ2 diagram, as shown below. The die and the machine has to operate within the operating windows.

다이 저항, 기계성능, 그리고 부품 요건에 따라 운영범위가 밑에 보여진 바와 같이 PQ2 도표에서 결정될 수 있다. 다이와 기계는 운영범위 내에서 작동되어야 한다.

Model Setup모델설정

PQ2 analysis can only be performed on moving object with prescribed motion. The PQ2 analysis can be activated in Meshing & Geometry Component Properties Moving Object. PQ2 analysis can only be performed on one component.

PQ2해석은 단지 지정운동을 하는 이동체에서만 실행될 수 있다. 이는 Meshing & Geometry Component Properties Moving Object 에서 활성화된다. 또 이는 단지 한 개의 구성요소에 대해서만 실행될 수 있다.

The parameters Maximum pressure and Maximum flow rate define the machine performance line.

매개변수 Maximum pressure Maximum flow rate 는 기계성능 곡선을 정의한다.

During the design stage, the process parameters specified might not optimal, such that the resulting pressure is beyond the machine capability. If this happens, the option Adjust velocity can be selected so that the piston velocity is automatically adjusted to match the machine capability. If Adjust velocity is selected, at every time step the pressure at the piston head will be compared with the machine performance pressure to see if it is beyond the machine capability. If it is beyond the machine capability, the flow rate is then reduced to match the machine capability. The reduction is instantaneous and no machine inertia is considered. Once the pressure drops below the machine performance line, the piston will then accelerate to the prescribed velocity. The acceleration has to be less than the machine Maximum acceleration specified.

설계시에 초래된 압력이 기계 성능 이상으로 되는 것같이 지정된 공정 변수들이 최적화가 되지 않았을지도 모른다.  이런 경우에 Adjust velocity 를 선택할 수 가 있고 피스톤속도는 기계성능에 맞게끔 자동적으로 조절될 수 있다. 만약 Adjust velocity 가 선택되면 매 시간단계에서 피스톤헤드의 압력이 기계 성능 이상인지를 알기 위해 기계성능 압력과 비교될 것이다. 압력이 기계 성능 이상이라면 유량은 기계성능을 맞추기 위해 감소될 것이다. 감소는 순간적으로 이루어지고 기계의 관성은 고려되지 않는다. 일단 압력이 성능 이하로 줄어들면 피스톤은 지정속도로 가속할 것이다. 가속도는 기계의 지정된 Maximum acceleration 보다 작아야 할 것이다. .

 

If Adjust velocity is selected, the machine parameters Maximum pressure and Maximum flow rate have to be provided. The Maximum acceleration is also required, however, it is by default to be infinite if not provided.

Adjust velocity 가 선택되면 기계시스템 변수 Maximum pressure Maximum flow rate 가 주어져야 한다. 또한 Maximum acceleration 가 필요하나 주어지지 않으면 디폴트 값은0이다.

 

For high pressure die casting, the fast shot stage is very short. But it is this stage that is of interest. The pressure and flow rate are written as general history data. The data output interval has to be very small to capture all the features in this stage. To reduce FLSGRF file size, only when flow rate reaches Minimum flow rate, the history data output interval is reduced to every two time steps. If Minimum flow rate is not provided, it is default to 1/3 of the Maximum flow rate. Note that the only purpose of Minimum flow rate is to change the history data output frequency.

고압주조에서 고속충진단계는 아주 짧은데 우리는 이 단계에 관심이 있다. 압력과 유량은 일반 이력 데이터로 기록된다. 데이터출력 간격은 이 단계에서의 모든 양상을 보기 위해 아주 작아야 한다. FLSGRF 파일 크기를 줄이기 위해 유량이 Minimum flow rate 에 도달했을 때만 이력데이터 출력 간격은 두 시간 간격에 한번으로 감소된다. Minimum flow rate 가 주어지지 않으면 Maximum flow rate 의 1/3이 디폴트값이다. 단지, Minimum flow rate 를 사용하는 목적은 이력 데이터 출력 간격을 변경하는 것임에 주목한다.

 

Due to the limitation of the FAVORTM, the piston head area computed may fluctuate as piston pushing through the shot sleeve. As a result, the metal flow rate computed may also fluctuate. To reduce the fluctuation, Shot sleeve diameter is recommended to be provided, so that it can be used to correct the metal flow rate. If only half of the domain is modeled, the diameter needs to be scaled to reflect the real cross section area in the simulation.

FAVORTM 제약에 따라 계산된 피스톤헤드 면적은 피스톤이 shot sleeve 를 통해 움직일 때 변할 수 있다. 결과적으로 계산된 액체금속 유량이 변할 수 있다. 이를 줄이기 위해 Shot sleeve diameter 를 주는 것이 필요하고, 이로부터 액체금속 유량을 정정할 수 있다.  만약에 단지 영역의 반만 모델이 되면 직경은 모사(simulate)시에 실제 단면적을 나타내기 위해 비례되어야 한다.

Postprocessing 후처리

If PQ2 analysis is chosen, the pressure, flow rate, and prescribed velocity of the specified moving object will be written to FLSGRF file as General history data. If Adjust velocity is selected, the adjusted velocity will also be written as General history data. In addition, the PQ2 diagram can be drawn directly from the history data in FlowSight.

PQ2해석이 선택되면 압력, 유량 그리고 특정 이동체의 지정속도가 General history 데이터로 FLSGRF 파일에 쓰여질 것이다. Adjust velocity 가 선택되면 조절된 속도 또한 General history 데이터로 쓰여질 것이다. 추가로 PQ2 도표는 직접 Flow Sight에서 이력데이터로 그려질 수 있다.

Elastic Springs & Ropes 탄성 스프링과 로프

The GMO model allows existence of elastic springs (linear and torsion springs) and ropes which exert forces or torques on objects under coupled motion. Users can define up to 100 springs and ropes in one simulation, and each moving object can be arbitrarily connected to multiple springs and ropes. For a linear spring, the elastic restoring force Fe is along the length of the spring and satisfies Hooke’s law of elasticity,

GMO 모델은 결합운동하는 물체에 힘과 토크를 미치는 탄성스프링(선형과 비틀림 스프링)과 로프로 이용될 수 있다. 사용자는 한 모사(simulate)에서 100개까지의 스프링과 로프를 정의할 수 있고 각 이동체는 임의로 다수의 스프링과 로프에 연결될 수 있다. 선형 스프링에서 탄성회복력 Fe 는 스프링의 길이 방향을 따라서 작용하며 Hooke 의 탄성법을 만족한다.

Fe = kl l

where: 여기서

  • kl is the spring coefficient,

kl 는스프링상수

  • l is the spring’s length change from its free condition,

l 는 스프링의 길이 변화량

  • Fe is a pressure force when the spring is compressed, and a tension force when stretched.

Fe 는 스프링이 압축되었을 때는 압축힘이며 늘어났을 때는 인장력이다.

An elastic rope also obeys Hooke’s law. It generates tension force only if stretched, but when compressed it is relaxed and the restoring force vanishes as would be the case of a slack rope.

탄성 로프 또한 Hooke 의 탄성법칙을 따른다. 단지 인장의 경우에만 인장력을   발생시키나 압축의 경우 느슨한 로프의 경우에서와 같이 느슨해지고 복원력은 사라진다.

A torsion spring produces a restoring torque T on a moving object with fixed-axis when the spring is twisted, following the angular form of Hooke’s law,

비틀림 스프링은 스프링이 비틀렸을 때 의 각 형태의 Hooke 법칙을 따라 고정 회전축을 갖는 이동체에 복원 토크 T 를 일으킨다.

Te = kθ θ

where: 여기서

  • kθ is the spring coefficient in the unit of [torque]/degree, and

kθ  [torque]/degree 는 단위의 스프링상수 그리고

  • θ is the angular deformation of the spring.

θ 는 스프링의 각변형

  • It is assumed that there is no elastic limit for the springs and ropes, namely Hooke’s law always holds no matter how big the deformation is.

스프링과 로프에는 탄성한계가 없다고 가정된다. 즉 아무리 스프링과 로프의 변형이 커도 Hooke 의 법칙이 작용한다고 가정된다.

A linear damping force associated with a spring/rope and a damping torque associated with a torsion spring may also be defined. The damping force Fd is exerted on the moving object at the attachment point of the spring/rope. Its line of action is along the spring/rope, and its value is proportional to the time rate of the spring/rope length,

스프링/로프에서의 선형 감쇠력 그리고 비틀림 스프링에서의 감쇠토크가 또한 정의된다. 감쇠력 Fd 는 스프링/로프의 부착점이 있는 이동체에 작용한다. 이의 작용선은 스프링/로프를 따라서이며 그 값은 스프링/로프 길이의 시간당 변화율에 비례한다.

dl

Fd = −cl

dt

Note the damping force for a rope vanishes when the rope is relaxed.

로프의 감쇠력은 로프가 느슨해질 때 없어진다.

The damping torque Td can only be applied on an object with a fixed-axis rotation. Its direction is opposite to the angular velocity, and its value is proportional to the angular velocity value,

감쇠 토크 Td 는 단지 고정축 회전을 하는 물체에만 적용된다. 그 방향은 각속도에 반대방향이고 값은 각속도 값에 비례한다.

Td = −cdω

where ω (in rad/time) is the angular velocity of the moving object.

여기서 ω (in rad/time) 는 이동체의 각속도이다.

 

In this model, a linear spring or rope can have one end attached to a moving object under coupled motion and the other end fixed in space or attached to another moving object under either prescribed or coupled motion. A torsion spring, however, must have one end attached to an object under coupled fixed-axis motion and the other end fixed in space. It is assumed that the rotation axis of the object and the axis of the torsion spring are the same. As a result, the torque applied by the spring on the object is around the object’s rotation axis, and the deformation angle of the spring is equal to the angular displacement of the object from where the spring is in free condition.

이 모델에서 선형 스프링 또는 로프는 한쪽 끝은 결합 운동하는 물체에 그리고 다른 끝은 공간에 고정되어 있거나 지정 또는 결합 운동을 하는 다른 이동체에 연결될 수 있다. 그러나 비틀림 스프링은 한 끝은 결합된 운동을 하는 물체에, 그리고 다른 한끝은 공간에 고정되어 있어야 한다. 물체의 회전축 및 비틀림 스프링의 축은 같다고 가정된다. 결과적으로 물체에 스프링에 의해 가해진 토크는 물체의 회전축둘레로 작용하며 스프링의 각 변형은 스프링의 자유위치로부터의 각변위와 같다.

 

A linear spring has a block length due to the thickness of the spring coil. It is the length of the spring at which the spring’s compression motion is blocked by its coil and cannot be compressed any further. This model allows for three types of linear springs:

선형스프링은 스프링 코일의 두께에 의한 차단 거리가 있다. 이는 스프링의 압축 운동이 그 코일에 의해 방해되어 더 이상 압축될 수 없는 스프링의 길이이다. 이 모델은 3가지의 선형 스프링을 고려할 수 있다.

  • Compression and extension spring: a spring that can be both compressed and extended. Its block length, by default, is 10% of its free length (the length of the spring in the force-free condition).

압축 및 확장스프링: 압축되거나 확장될 수 있는 스프링이며 이의 차단거리는 디폴트로 자유길이(힘을 받지 않을 때의 스프링의 길이) 의 10%이다

  • Extension spring: a spring that can only be extended. Its block length is always equal to its free length.

확장스프링: 확장될 수 있는 스프링이며 차단거리는 항상 자유 길이와 같다.

  • Compression spring: a spring that applies force only when it is compressed. When it is stretched, the force on the connected object vanishes. Its default block length is 10% of its free length.

압축스프링: 단지 압축되었을 경우에만 힘이 작용한다.  늘어날 경우 연결된 물체에 힘은 없고, 이의 디폴트 길이는 자유 길이의 10%이다.

To define a spring or rope, go to Model Setup Meshing Geometry. Click on the spring icon to bring up the Springs and Ropes window. Right click on Springs and Ropes to add a spring or rope. In the combo box for Type, select the type for the spring or rope.

스프링이나 로프를 정의하기 위해 Model Setup Meshing Geometry 로 가서 Springs and Ropes 창을 불러오기 위해 스프링 아이콘을 클릭한다. 스프링이나 로프를 추가하기 위해 Springs and Ropes 를 오른쪽 클릭한다. Type 을위한 combo 상자에서 스프링이나 로프를 선택한다.

  • Linear spring and rope: Click to open the branches for End 1 and End 2 which represent the initial coordinates of the ends of the spring/rope. In each branch, go to Component # and select the index of the moving object which the spring end is connected to. If the end is not connected to any moving component, i.e., is fixed in space, select None. In the X, Y and Z edit boxes, enter the initial coordinates of the spring’s end. Each end can be placed anywhere inside or outside the moving object and the computational domain. Enter Free Length (the length of the spring/rope in the force-free condition), Block Length, Spring Coefficient (required) and Damping Coefficient (default is 0.0). Note that the Block Length is deactivated for rope and extension spring because the former has no block length while the latter always has its block length equal to its free length. By default, the free length is set equal to the initial distance between the two ends.

선형 스프링과 로프: 스프링/로프의 양쪽 끝의 초기좌표를 나타내는 End 1 End 2 를 위한 branches를 열기 위해 클릭한다. 각 branch 에서 Component #로 가서 스프링의 끝이 연결되어 있는 이동체의 색인을 설정한다. 끝이 어떤 이동체에 연결되어 있지 않다면, 즉 공간에 고정되어 있다면 None 을 선택한다. X, Y Z 편집상자에서 스프링 끝의 초기좌표를 입력한다. 각 끝은 이동체나 계산 영역의 내, 외부 어디에도 놓여질 수 있다.

Free Length (힘이없는상태에서의 스프링/로프의 길이), Block Length, Spring Coefficient (필요함) 그리고 Damping Coefficient (디폴트는0.0)를 입력한다. 로프와 인장스프링에서는 Block Length 가 비 활성화됨을 주목하는데 그 이유는 전자는 Block Length 가 없고 후자는 항상 자유 길이와 같은 Block Length 를 가지기 때문이다.

디폴트로 자유길이는 양쪽 끝 사이의 초기길이와 같게 설정된다.

  • Torsion spring: End 1 represents the spring’s end that is attached to a moving object under fixed-axis rotation, and End 2 the end fixed in space. Click to open the branch for End 1. In the combo box for Component #, select the index of the moving object which End 1 is attached to. Then enter Spring Coefficient (required, in unit of [torque]/degree) and Damping Coefficient (default is 0.0). Finally enter the Initial Torque in the input box. The initial torque is the torque of the spring applied on the moving object at t = 0. It is positive if it is in the positive direction of the coordinate axis which the rotation axis of the moving object is parallel to.

비틀림 스프링: End 1은 고정축 회전을 하는 이동체에 연결된 스프링의 끝을 나타내고 End 2는 공간에 고정된 끝을 나타낸다. End 1의 branch 를 열기 위해 클릭한다. Component #를위한 combo 상자에서 End 1 이 연결된 이동체의 색인을 선택한다. 그런 후에 Spring Coefficient ([torque]/degree의 단위로 필요) 와 Damping Coefficient (디폴트는0.0)를 입력한다.

마지막으로 입력 상자에서 Initial Torque 를 넣는다. 초기토크는 t = 0일 때 이동체에 적용된 스프링의 토크이다. 이동체의 회전축이 평행한 좌표축의 양의 방향이면 양의 값이다.

After the simulation is complete, users can display the calculated deformation and force (or torque) of each spring and rope as functions of time. Go to Analyze Probe Data source and check General history. In the variable list under Data variables, find the Spring/rope index followed by spring/rope length extension from free state, spring/rope force and/or spring torque. Then check Output form Text or Graphical and click Render to display the data. Positive/negative values of spring force and length extension mean the linear spring or rope is stretched/compressed relative to its free state and the restoring force is a tension/pressure force. Positive/negative values of the torque of a torsion spring means its deformation angle (a vector) measured from its free state is in the negative/positive direction of the coordinate axis which its axis is parallel to.

모사(simulate)가 끝난 후에 사용자는 시간의 함수로 각 스프링의 계산된 변형과 힘(토크)를 나타낼 수 있다. Analyze Probe Data source 로가서 General history 를 체크한다. Data variables 에 있는 변수 목록에서 spring/rope length extension from free state, spring/rope force 과/또는 spring torque 로 이어지는 스프링/로프의 색인을 찾는다. 그리고 Output form Text 또는 Graphical 를 체크하고 데이터를 나타내기 위해 Render 를 클릭한다.

스프링 힘과 인장길이의 양/음의 값은 선 스프링과 로프가 자유상태에 대해 상대적으로 늘어나거나 압축된 것을 뜻한다. 비틀림스프링 토크의 양/음의값은 축에 평행한 좌표 축의 양/음의 방향에 대해 측정된 변형각(벡터)을 뜻한다.

 

It is noted that the spring/rope calculation is explicitly coupled with GMO motion calculation. If a numerical instability occurs it is recommended that users activate the implicit GMO model, define limited compressibility of fluid, or decrease time step.

스프링/로프 계산은 GMO 운동계산과 외재적으로 결합되어 있음에 주목한다. 수치 불안정성이 발생하면 사용자는 내재적 GMO모델을 활성화하고 유체의 제한적 압축성을 정의하던가 또는 시간간격을 줄이는 것을 추천한다.

Mooring Lines 계류선

The mooring line model allows moving objects with prescribed or coupled motion to be connected to fixed anchors or other moving or non-moving objects via compliant mooring lines. Multiple mooring lines are allowed in one simulation, and their connections to the moving objects are arbitrary. The mooring lines can be taut or slack and may fully or partially rest on sea/river floor. The model considers gravity, buoyancy, fluid drag and tension force on the mooring lines. The mooring lines are assumed to be cylinders with uniform diameter and material distributions, and each line can have its own length, diameter, mass density and other physical properties. The model numerically calculates the full 3D dynamics of the mooring lines and their dynamic interactions with the tethered moving objects.

계류선 모델링은 유연한 계류선을 이용하여 지정 또는 결합운동을 하는 이동체가 고정 닻 또는 다른 이동 또는 고정물체에 연결되는 것을 가능하게 해준다. 다수의 계류선도 한 모사(simulate)내에서 가능하며 이들의 이동체에의 연결은 인위적이다.

계류선은 팽팽하거나 느슨할 수 있고 전체 또는 부분이 해저나 하상에 위치할 수 있다. 이 모델은 계류선에 작용하는 중력, 부력, 유체저항 및 인장력을 고려할 수 있다. 계류선은 일정직경과 균일분포의 원통형으로 가정되고 각 선은 각 길이, 직경, 밀도 및 기타 물리적 물성을 가질 수 있다. 이 모델은 수치적으로 3차원계류선 운동 및 선에 의해 묶여진 이동체와의 동적 상호작용을 계산한다.

 

The model allows the mooring lines to be partially or completely outside the computational domain. When a line is anchored deep in water, depending on the vertical size of the domain, the lower part of the line can be located below the domain bottom where there is no computation of fluid flow. In this case, it is assumed that uniform water current exists below the domain for that part of mooring line, and the corresponding drag force is evaluated based on the uniform deep water velocity. Limitations exist for the model. It does not consider bending stiffness of mooring lines. Interactions between mooring lines are ignored. When simulating mooring line networks, free nodes are not allowed.

이 모델은 계류선이 계산 영역의 완전히 또는 부분적으로 외부에 위치하게 할 수 있다. 계류선은 영역의 심해에 앵커되어 있을 때 수직(세로)크기에 따라 선의 하부는 유동 계산이 없는 영역 바닥에 위치할 수 있다. 이 경우 계류선의 하부가 있는 영역하부에는 균일한 유속이 존재한다고 가정되고 이에 상응하는 유속저항은 균일한 심해유속에 근거하여 계산된다.

이모델은 제약이 있는데 선의 굽힘 강도는 고려하지 않는다. 선간의 상호작용도 무시된다. 선간의 관계를 모사(simulate)활 때 자유접속점은 허용되지 않는다.

 

To define a mooring line, go to Model Setup Meshing & Geometry. Click on the spring icon to bring up the Springs, Ropes and Mooring Lines window. Right click on Springs / Ropes / Mooring Lines to add a mooring line. Click on Mooring Lines Deep Water Velocity and enter x, y and z components of the deep water velocity (default value is zero). Click on Mooring Line # and enter the physical and numerical properties of the mooring line.

계류선을 정의하기위해 Model Setup Meshing & Geometry 로간다. Springs, Ropes and Mooring Lines 창을 불러오기 위해 스프링 아이콘을 클릭한다. 계류선을 추가하기위해 Springs / Ropes / Mooring Lines 에서 오른쪽 클릭을 하고 Mooring Lines Deep Water Velocity 를클릭해서 심해속도의 x, y 및 z 성분을 입력한다(디폴트는0이다). Mooring Line # 를 클릭하고 선의 물리적 및 수치적 물성들을 입력한다.
