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.

이 사례를 통해 FLOW-3D@ WELD를 이용하여 레이저 용접 프로세스의 키홀 형성 유도를 통한 porosity 형성에 대하여 검토가 가능한 것을 알 수 있습니다.

  • 레이저 출력과 용접 속도의 영향
  • 레이저 빔의 경사각의 영향으로 porosity 형성을 유도하는 키홀의 메커니즘

Porosity 형성을 유도하는 Key Hole 해석모델

위 그림과 같이 온도에 따른 표면장력 값과 강한 우회전 소용돌이에 의해 후방으로의 유동은 거의 억제되는 것을 확인할 수 있습니다. 강한 용융 유동에 의한 Key Hole 붕괴는 초기 porosity 형성의 원인이 되지만, Key Hole 재개나 기포가 자유표면으로 빠져 나가도록 반드시 porosity를 이끌지는 않습니다.

그러나 키홀 바닥부에서 강한 소용돌이에 의해 기포가 키홀 용융지 후방 저부로 운반될 때는 높은 열전도율로 응고면이 빠르게 이동하므로, 응고면에 의해 포획될 위험이 매우 높습니다.

또한 용융 시의 알루미늄은 소용돌이가 강하기 때문에, 기포를 용융지의 바닥 후방에 있는 상태에서 배출시키는 것은 거의 불가능합니다. 기포가 응고면에 의해 포획될 경우 porosity가 형성됩니다.

레이저 출력과 용접속도의 영향

일반적으로 용접속도를 크게 하면 결합부에서 Porosity가 감소합니다. 이는 용접 속도 상승으로 모재 내 용해 및 키홀 깊이가 감소하여 키홀이 안정되기 때문입니다.

실험에 의한 길이 방향 단면의 Porisity 분포와 FLOW-3D@ WELD에 의한 분석 결과를 보여줍니다. 3번 케이스도 실험과 비슷한 용해 깊이를 가지고 있으며, 분석 결과도 실험과 매우 잘 일치하고 있습니다.

용접 단면의 Porosity 분포
용접 단면의 Porosity 분포

용접 단면의 Porosity 분포를 보면, 레이저 조사 각도가 증가할 수록 Porosity가 뚜렷이 감소하고 있음을 알 수 있습니다. 위의 오른쪽 그림에 용융지 내의 유속장과 온도분포를 보면 레이저 빔의 경사각도는 키홀의 생성 방향을 결정하여 후방의 용융지와 용융유동에 영향을 미치고 있습니다.

또한, 레이저의 경사각도가 작을 경우 강력한 증발 반력이나 중력에 의해 용융금속이 다른 방향으로 이동합니다. 이는 강한 소용돌이 흐름의 원인이 되는 구동력으로 작용하여 키홀 붕괴로 이어지기 쉽다는 것을 확인할 수 있습니다.

ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING SIMULATIONS

Capabilities of FLOW-3D

FLOW-3D는 자유 표면 유체 흐름 시뮬레이션을 전문으로하는 다중 물리 CFD 소프트웨어입니다. 자유 표면의 동적 진화를 추적하는 소프트웨어의 알고리즘인 VOF (Volume of Fluid) 방법은 Flow Science의 설립자인 Tony Hirt 박사가 개척했습니다.

또한 FLOW-3D에는 금속 주조, 잉크젯 인쇄, 레이저 용접 및 적층 제조 (AM)와 같은 광범위한 응용 분야를 시뮬레이션하기위한 물리 모델이 내장되어 있습니다.
적층 제조 시뮬레이션 소프트웨어, 특히 L-PBF (레이저 파우더 베드 융합 공정)의 현상 유지는 열 왜곡, 잔류 응력 및지지 구조 생성과 같은 부분 규모 모델링에 도움이되는 열 기계 시뮬레이션에 초점을 맞추고 있습니다.

유용하지만 용융 풀 역학 및 볼링 및 다공성과 같은 관련 결함에 대한 정보는 일반적으로 이러한 접근 방식의 영역 밖에 있습니다. 용융 풀 내의 유체 흐름, 열 전달 및 표면 장력이 열 구배 및 냉각 속도에 영향을 미치며 이는 다시 미세 구조 진화에 영향을 미친다는 점을 명심하는 것도 중요합니다.

FLOW-3D와 이산 요소법 (DEM) 및 WELD 모듈을 사용하여 분말 및 용융 풀 규모에서 시뮬레이션 할 수 있습니다.
구현되는 관련 물리학에는 점성 흐름, 열 전달, 응고, 상 변화, 반동 압력, 차폐 가스 압력, 표면 장력, 움직이는 물체 및 분말 / 입자 역학이 포함됩니다. 이러한 접근 방식은 합금에 대한 공정을 성공적으로 개발할 수 있게 하고, AM 기계 제조업체와 AM 기술의 최종 사용자 모두에게 관심있는 미세 구조 진화에 대한 통찰력을 제공하는데 도움이 됩니다.

FLOW-3D는 레이저 분말 베드 융합 (L-PBF), 직접 에너지 증착 (DED) 및 바인더 제트 공정으로 확장되는 기능을 가지고 있습니다.
FLOW-3D를 사용하면 분말 확산 및 패킹, 레이저 / 입자 상호 작용, 용융 풀 역학, 표면 형태 및 후속 미세 구조 진화를 정확하게 시뮬레이션 할 수 있습니다. 이러한 기능은 FLOW-3D에 고유하며 계산 효율성이 높은 방식으로 달성됩니다.

예를 들어 1.0mm x 0.4mm x 0.3mm 크기의 계산 영역에서 레이저 빔의 단일 트랙을 시뮬레이션하기 위해 레이저 용융 모델은 단 8 개의 물리적 코어에서 약 2 시간이 걸립니다.
FLOW-3D는 모든 관련 물리 구현 간의 격차를 해소하는 동시에 업계 및 연구 표준에서 허용하는 시간 프레임으로 결과를 생성합니다. 분말 패킹, 롤러를 통한 파워 확산, 분말의 레이저 용융, 용융 풀 형성 및 응고를 고려하고 다층 분말 베드 융합 공정을 위해 이러한 단계를 순차적으로 반복하여 FLOW-3D에서 전체 AM 공정을 시뮬레이션 할 수 있습니다.

FLOW-3D의 다층 시뮬레이션은 이전에 응고된 층의 열 이력을 저장한다는 점에서 독특하며, 열 전달을 고려하여 이전에 응고된 층에 확산된 새로운 분말 입자 세트에 대해 시뮬레이션이 수행됩니다.
또한, 응고 된 베드의 열 왜곡 및 잔류 응력은 FLOW-3D를 사용하여 평가할 수 있으며, 보다 복잡한 분석을 수행하기 위해 FLOW-3D의 압력 및 온도 데이터를 Abaqus 및 MSC Nastran과 같은 FEA 소프트웨어로 내보낼 수 있습니다.

완전하고 단순화된 화학 기반 응고 모델

유연성 모델

솔리드화 모델에는 전체 모델과 단순화된 모델이 모두 포함되어 있어 사용자가 시뮬레이션 워크플로우를 보다 효과적으로 제어할 수 있습니다. 전체 모델은 용융이 응고될 때 화응고 모델에는 전체 모델과 단순 모델이 모두 포함되어 있어 사용자가 시뮬레이션 워크 플로우를 보다 효과적으로 제어할 수 있습니다. 전체 모델은 용해가 응고됨에 따라 화학적 구성과 위상 변화를 고려하는 반면, 단순화된 모델은 보다 빠른 런트를 제공하고 전체 모델만큼 많은 메모리를 필요로 하지 않습니다. 전체 모델을 기반으로 한 재시작 시뮬레이션은 단순화된 모델에서 시작하거나 그 반대로 시작할 수 있습니다. 이를 통해 다양한 시뮬레이션 유형과 시뮬레이션 단계에 적합한 모델을 사용할 수 있는 완전한 유연성을 제공합니다.

사용할 모델

자원을 적게 사용하는 것의 명백한 이점 때문에 사용자는 가능한 단순화된 모델을 많이 사용할 것을 권장한다. 매크로 분리가 중요한 경우에는 사용자가 전체 모델을 사용하는 것이 좋습니다. 열 다이 사이클 시뮬레이션의 경우, 이러한 모델링 시나리오에서는 완전한 분석이 필요하지 않기 때문에 소프트웨어가 단순화된 모델을 적용합니다.

일부 박막형 주조물의 경우 확산 및 홍보에 기반한 매크로 세그멘테이션은 중요하지 않습니다. 이러한 주조물에서 응고 경로는 전체적으로 거의 동일합니다. 따라서 각 개별 계산 셀에 대해 응고 중에 조성 및 위상 변화를 추적할 필요가 없습니다. 이러한 유형의 시나리오에서는 사용자가 간소화된 응고 모델을 사용하여 솔루션에 더 빨리 도달하는 것이 좋습니다.

Keyhole-induced porosity in LPBF (다공성을 포함하는 LPBF의 키홀)

키홀의 실험 및 수치 모델 설정

  • 왼쪽 그림 설명 : KU Leuven 자체 제작 L-PBF 기계로 생성 된 실험 분석용 샘플. 벌크 크기는 10.4mm x 10.4mm x 4.5mm이며 다공성을 갖는 키홀 모드를 초래하는 6개의 스캔 트랙은 각각 길이가 8mm임
  • 오른쪽 그림 설명 : 전체 계산 영역의 3D 화면. 청록색으로 표시된 조절량에는 고체상과 기체상이 모두 포함됨. 오른쪽에는 도메인의 재구성 된 자유 표면의 확대도가 표시됨.

키홀링으로 전환

  • 용융지는 처음에 얕음
  • 하향 운동은 강한 반동 압력에 의해 좌우됨
  • 키홀의 성장으로 이어지는 강한 하향 흐름과 핫스팟의 공존
  • 열쇠 구멍 림에 가까운 온도가 상승하고 반동 압력이 높아짐

다공성 형성 메커니즘

  • 키홀의 바닥에서 반동 압력이 상승하고 상단 영역의 표면 장력이 증가함
  • 냉각 영역이 닫히며 불규칙한 기공이 나타남
  • 하향 흐름이 강해서 기공이 용융지 뒤쪽으로 밀려남
  • 응고된 앞부분이 진보하면서 기공들이 갖힘

What’s happening at the melt pool?/레이저 가공

Laser keyhole welding

레이저 키홀(Keyhole) 가공(No oscillations/진동 고려하지 않을 경우)

높은 속도에서 다공성을 감소시키는 경우(Reduced porosity at high speed-mechanism)

고속 레이저 가공(진동 고려하지 않음)해석 시 고려사항

  • 틈새 조건에 대한 허용 오차가 낮아지는 좁은 조인트(Joint) 너비
  • 레이저가 꺼질 때 큰 끝 분화구(Large end crater)
  • 속도가 높을 때 불충분한 침투(Penetration)
  • 제한된 사용가능한 레이저 출력 : 6kW

진동을 고려한 레이저 랩(Lap) 용접

  • 키홀(Keyhole) 붕괴를 방지하는 고속 스캐닝 가능
    – 다공성(Porosity) 최소화
  • 인터페이스 간극(Interface gaps)에서 브리지 간격(Bridge gaps)을 조정하여 조인트(Joint) 폭을 조정할 수 있는 유연성 제공

모델 검증

사이클(One cycle) 내에서 키홀(Keyhole) 역학

진동을 고려한 레이저 가공의 이점

  • 진동을 통한 최초 품질 향상
  • 키홀(Keyhole)로 인한 다공성(Porosity)을 피하면서 높은 용접 속도 가능
  • 전력 변조가 사용되지 않는 경우, 각 주기내에서 키홀(Keyhole) 및 전도 모델간 전환

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.

ALL NEW FLOW-3D CAST v5

ALL NEW FLOW-3D CAST v5

HPC version of FLOW-3D CAST v5 releasedALL NEW FLOW-3D CAST v5 는 금속 주조 시뮬레이션 및 공정 모델링에 있어 큰 발전입니다. 이제 FLOW-3D CAST는 시뮬레이션 할 프로세스를 선택할 수 있으며, 소프트웨어는 적절한 프로세스 매개 변수, 지오메트리 유형 및 합리적인 기본 값을 제공합니다. 이렇게 하면 시뮬레이션 설정이 상당히 간소화됩니다. 또한 FLOW-3D CAST의 강력한 시뮬레이션 엔진과 결함 예측을 위한 새로운 도구는 설계 주기를 단축하고 비용을 절감하는 통찰력을 제공합니다. 대표적인 개발 기능으로 응고 시뮬레이션을 위한 열 계수 및 핫 스팟 식별 출력, 갇혀 있는 가스를 식별하고 환기 효율을 예측하기 위한 결함 채우기 도구 등이 포함됩니다. 그리고 더 빠르고 더 강력한 압력과 및 응력 해소 기능이 모두 포함합니다.

ALL NEW FLOW-3D CAST v5 는 관련 프로세스가 포함된 Suite제품으로 제공됩니다. 영구 금형 제품군은 중력 다이 캐스팅, 저압 다이캐스팅(LPDC), 틸트 주입 주조와 같은 프로세스 작업 공간을 포함합니다. 각 프로세스에 대해 사용자 인터페이스는 특정 프로세스와 관련된 내용만 표시합니다. 모래 주조 Suite에는 중력 사형 주조 및 저압 사형 주조(LPSC)와 같은 프로세스가 포함되어 있습니다. 소실 폼 제품 군에는 사형 주조 Suite의 모든 것과 소실 폼 공정 작업 공간이 포함됩니다.

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.

Predict filling defects caused by entrapped gas using the Particle Model.

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.

Identify solidification defects with the new Thermal Modulus output.

Solidification Defect Identification 응고 결함 식별

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.

Summary Views of Components/Cooling Channels

FLOW-3D CAST v5의 인터페이스는 주조 시뮬레이션에서 다양한 형상 구성 요소를 꽉 차게 보여줍니다. 2개의 새로운 형상 요약 뷰인 구성 요소 요약 뷰와 냉각 채널 요약 뷰는 기하학적 구성 요소 및 냉각 채널의 플라이 아웃을 제공하여 사용자가 신속하게 수행할 수 있도록 합니다. 중요 설정을 한 눈에 파악하고 필요한 경우 변경 할 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.

Melt temperatures in the casting cavity read from a filling simulation are applied to ejector die during filling/solidification stage of thermal die cycling simulation.

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.

Solidification & Shrinkage Defects (응고, 수축결함)

Solidification & Shrinkage Defects (응고, 수축결함)

FLOW-3D는 수축결함을 완화시키기 위해 압탕(riser)의 위치를 확인할 수 있는 응고 모델링 툴과 수축공(shrinkage)과 미세수축공(mirco-porosity) 영역을 정확히 파악하기 위한 모든 기능을 보유하고 있습니다. 거기에는 편석( segregation), 열응력(thermal stress)응력 등 응고와 연관된 광범위한 결함 예측기능들이 있습니다. 정확한 응고 현사을 분석하기 위해 중요한 첫 번째 단계는 정확한 충진 해석입니다. 정확한 온도분포(thermal profile)를 예측하기 위해서는 정확한 유동해석이 필요하고, 이는 응고해석의 초기조건이 됩니다. FLOW-3D는 보다 신속한 주물 설계 및 불량률을 줄일 수 있도록 응고와 관련된 많은 결함을 예측할 수 있습니다.

Solidification & Shrinkage Videos

Micro-porosity(=Micro-shrinkage) Defects, (미세기포(=미세수축공)에 의한 결함)

Micro-porosity(=Mirco-shrinkage) Defects (미세기포(=미세수축공)에 의한 결함)

FLOW-3D는 특별히 응고 과정 후반에  발생하는 미세수축공의 발생 위치를 예측하기 위한 모델을 갖고 있습니다. 이 정보를 이용하여 설계방안을 조정하고 중요한 결함을 방지 할 수 있습니다. 어떤 주조 부품들은 용탕이 응고하는 동안의 수축에 의한 gas pocket이나 porosity(or shrinkage)이 표면에 드러나면 불량품으로 판정받게 됩니다. 대부분의 크기가 큰 수축공은 응고중 피딩(feeding)을 가능하게 하는 적절한 금형 설계 방법에 의해 제거될 수 있습니다. 용탕의 응고수축을 보상하도록 충분한 feeding이 발생할 때, 미세수축공(micro-porosity, micro-shrinkage)은 일반적으로 발생하지 않습니다. 미세수축공은 충진시 공기혼입에 의한 기포와 발생원인이 상이한 것으로 응고말기 수지상(dendrite)조직에 충분한 용탕이 공급되지 않을 경우 주로 발생하며 일반적으로 부피 비율이 1 % 이하 정도의 작은 기포의 분포의미합니다. 그러므로 미세수축공이 나타날 수 있는 위치 및 가능성을 예측하는 수단을 갖는다는 것은 고품질 주조품의 생산에 매우 중요합니다. FLOW-3D의 미세수축공 모델(micro-porosity model )은 이러한 목적을 위해 개발되었습니다.

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.

Batch Postprocessing & Report Generation

Batch 후처리 및 보고서 생성은 해석 결과 분석시 사용자의 해석 처리 시간을 절약하기 위해 개발되었습니다. Batch 후처리는, 해석이 완료된 후, 사용자가 애니메이션, 시나리오, 그래프, 텍스트 데이터 시리즈를 정의하여 자동으로 생성되도록 할 수 있습니다. 그래픽 요청은 백그라운드에서 FlowSight를 실행하여 처리되도록 FLOW-3D Cast에 정의되어 있습니다. 원하는 해석 결과를 생성할 수 있는 컨텍스트 파일을 사용하면 Batch 후처리 기능을 사용할 수 있습니다. Batch 후처리가 완료되면, 사용자는 쉽게 자신의 관리자, 동료, 또는 클라이언트에 보낼 수있는 HTML5 형식의 완벽한 기능을 갖춘 보고서를 만들 수 있습니다. 이미지 및 동영상도 보고서에 포함 할 수 있고, 사용자는 텍스트, 캡션, 참고 문헌의 형식을 완벽하게 제어 하고 유지할 수 있습니다. Read the blog post >

Tilt Pour Casting (경동주조)

ilt Pour Casting (경동주조)

Simulation of the tilt pour process using FLOW-3D Cast.

경동주조는 수평 위치에 있는 금형에 용탕을 주입하는 공정입니다.  미리 세팅된 회전조건으로 주조 기계를 수직 위치로 회전시켜 용탕을 천천히 금형 안에 들어가게 합니다.

Temperature profile during a tilt pour filling cycle

경동주조 공정의 해석에서  금형의 회전을 완료하는 데 걸리는 시간은 매우 중요합니다. 회전속도는 사용자가 쉽게 최적화 할 수 있도록 FLOW-3D안에서 변경 가능합니다.  금형의 회전속도가 너무 빠르면 공기가 용탕에 포집되고, 너무 느리면 표면에 결함이 있을 것입니다. 온도 프로파일은 각각 액상 및 고상 온도로 최대 및 최소값을 그래프로 설정하여 가시화 됩니다. 여기는 제품이 절반 부분 채워지고 용탕 온도는 응고 온도에 접근하지 않아 초기 응고 현상이 일어나지 않을 것입니다.

Surface oxide and entrained air defects (표면산화물과 공기의 혼입 결함)

수상 스포츠와 래프팅 장비에 사용되는 경량 알루미늄 부품은 높은 품질의 마무리가 필요로 하며 표면의 결함도 거의 없도록 주조 됩니다. 이 경동주조 시뮬레이션은 충진 과정에서의 표면 산화물과 공기가 포집될 가능성이 있는 영역을 보여 줍니다. 이러한 결함의 움직임을 아는 것은 주조 엔지니어가 결함을 제거하고자 게이트, 러너 및 라이저를 설계하는 데 도움이 됩니다. FLOW-3D는  6자유도(x,y,z 방향의 이동과 회전) 기능을 복합하여 금형의 모든 운동을 기술할 수 있으며 금형의 각 가속도 / 감속도을 시뮬레이션 할 수 있는 기능을 가지고 있습니다.

Velocity contours and thermal gradients

합금 속도의 정확한 제어는 turbulent gas porosity 같은 주조 결함을 최소화 시킬 수 있습니다.이 애니메이션은 자동 틸팅 순서를 통해 sprue 와 gate 설계 내 속도 윤곽을 보여줍니다. 온도 구배의 분석은 초기 응고와 뜨거운 금속을 나타냅니다. 더 나은 금형 설계를 위해 수축 결함 및 응고 볼륨 보상을 위한 금형을 설계합니다.

HPDC (High Pressure Die Casting, 고압다이캐스팅)

HPDC (High Pressure Die Casting, 고압다이캐스팅)

주조 기술 중 하나인 고압 다이 캐스팅 해석시 다른 많은 주조해석 소프트웨어에서 큰 문제들이 나타납니다. 충진되어야 할 부분은 대부분 매우 얇은 두께를 가지고 있어서 형상 구현에 필요한 격자의 수가 크게 증가되어야 합니다. 무엇보다도 금속은 높은 압력과 매우 빠른 속도로 금형안의 빈 공간에 충진됩니다. 금형 내부로 분사되고 비산하는 유동은 이 과정에서 혼입 된 공기로 인한 기포결함, 제품이 완전히 충진되기 전에 냉각이 시작하면서 발생하는 탕주름과 산화물 결함으로 이어질 수 있습니다.  FLOW-3D는 실질적인 금형 충진 해석의 정밀도를 향상시키기 위해 정확성이 고도로 향상된 TruVOF™ 추적기법과 복잡한 형상을 모델링하는FAVOR ™ 기법을 포함하고 있습니다. 또한 FLOW-3D는 혼입 된 공기, 열 응력, 미세 결함 영역을 검출하기 위한 다양한 모델을 가지고 있습니다.

Thermal Die Cycling (금형온도분포,  금형싸이클링)

Die cycling 해석은 다이캐스팅 금형이 수천 개의 제품 생산에 반복적으로 사용되기 때문에 고압 다이 캐스팅에 필수적인 공정입니다. 생산시 모든 주조품에 대해서 동일한 금형 온도를 유지하는 것은 매우 중요한데, 이는 금형온도에 따라 주조품의 결괌이 발생할 수 있기 때문입니다. FLOW-3D는 다이캐스팅 싸이클에서 발생하는  금형 가열(충진, 응고), 스프레이, 에어 블로우로부터 온도 분포를 해석하므로 사용자는 냉각 채널의 위치를 정확하고 효과적으로 예측할 수 있습니다.

Shot Sleeve Optimization (슬리브 유동 최적화)

고압다이캐스팅에서 슬리브는 금형 속에 용탕을 빠르게 밀어넣는 데 사용됩니다. 일반적으로 슬리브는 수평으로 위치되고, 용탕은 슬리브 상면의 주입구를 통해 부어집니다. 플런저는 금형 반대편에서 슬리브를 통해 금형 안쪽으로 용탕을 밀어 넣게 됩니다. 적절하게 설계된  플런저 이동조건은 슬리브 내부의 공기 혼입을 최소화하고 슬리브에서의 응고를 피하기 위해 가능한 한 빨리 금형에 용탕을 충진하게 설계되어야 합니다. 하지만,  피스톤이 너무 빨리 이동하는 경우, 슬리브 내에서 용탕의 겹침현상이 발생하여 주조품에 공기 갇힘 결함이 나타날 수 있습니다. FLOW-3D는 다이캐스팅 해석시 플런저 이동에 따른 슬리브 내부의 유동을 실제와 동일하게 반영하여 이와 같은 기포 결함을 최소화할 수 있습니다.

Filling Simulations (충진해석)

고압 다이 캐스팅을 해석할 때, 가장 어려운 과제는 고압 및 고속으로 금형에 충진되는 용탕의 유동을 정확하게 추적하는 것입니다. 많은 주조해석 소프트웨어에서 용탕의 분사와 비산을 정확하게 모사하지 못하는 것이 제품의 결함 예측에 가장 큰 장애물이됩니다. FLOW-3D의 TruVOF™ method는 설계 엔지니어들이 금형내부에서 최적의 유동 패턴을 유도하기 위해 게이트의 위치를 확인하고, 오버 플로우의 위치를 확인하는데 핵심적인 역할을 할 수 있습니다.

Modeling Solidification (응고모델링)

FLOW-3D는 엔지니어로 하여금 최종 제품의 품질에 영향을 미칠 수 있는 내부 기공(porosity)의 발생을 알수 있도록 합니다. FLOW-3D는 2원계합금(binary alloy)의 편석(segregation)을 해석할 수 있습니다. 해석에 의한 온도 이력은 냉금(chill)  또는 냉각라인(cooling line)이 추가되거나 수정 될 필요가 있는지, 초기 용탕 온도를 변경해야 하는지 등을 결정하는데 도움을 줍니다. FLOW-3D는 내부 미세수축공의 형성, 열응력 및 2원계합금의 편석을 예측할 수 있습니다.
