Abstract

Spillways are constructed to evacuate flood discharge safely so that a flood wave does not overtop the dam body. There are different types of spillways, with the ogee type being the conventional one. A stepped spillway is an example of a nonconventional spillway. The turbulent flow over a stepped spillway was studied numerically by using the Flow-3D package. Different fluid flow characteristics such as longitudinal flow velocity, temperature distribution, density and chemical concentration can be well simulated by Flow-3D. In this study, the influence of slope changes on flow characteristics such as air entrainment, velocity distribution and dynamic pressures distribution over a stepped spillway was modelled by Flow-3D. The results from the numerical model were compared with an experimental study done by others in the literature. Two models of a stepped spillway with different discharge for each model were simulated. The turbulent flow in the experimental model was simulated by the Renormalized Group (RNG) turbulence scheme in the numerical model. A good agreement was achieved between the numerical results and the observed ones, which are exhibited in terms of graphics and statistical tables.

배수로는 홍수가 댐 몸체 위로 넘치지 않도록 안전하게 홍수를 피할 수 있도록 건설되었습니다. 다른 유형의 배수로가 있으며, ogee 유형이 기존 유형입니다. 계단식 배수로는 비 전통적인 배수로의 예입니다. 계단식 배수로 위의 난류는 Flow-3D 패키지를 사용하여 수치적으로 연구되었습니다.

세로 유속, 온도 분포, 밀도 및 화학 농도와 같은 다양한 유체 흐름 특성은 Flow-3D로 잘 시뮬레이션 할 수 있습니다. 이 연구에서는 계단식 배수로에 대한 공기 혼입, 속도 분포 및 동적 압력 분포와 같은 유동 특성에 대한 경사 변화의 영향을 Flow-3D로 모델링 했습니다.

수치 모델의 결과는 문헌에서 다른 사람들이 수행한 실험 연구와 비교되었습니다. 각 모델에 대해 서로 다른 배출이 있는 계단식 배수로의 두 모델이 시뮬레이션되었습니다. 실험 모델의 난류 흐름은 수치 모델의 Renormalized Group (RNG) 난류 계획에 의해 시뮬레이션되었습니다. 수치 결과와 관찰 된 결과 사이에 좋은 일치가 이루어졌으며, 이는 그래픽 및 통계 테이블로 표시됩니다.

INTRODUCTION

댐 구조는 물 보호가 생활의 핵심이기 때문에 물을 저장하거나 물을 운반하는 전 세계에서 가장 중요한 프로젝트입니다. 그리고 여수로는 댐의 가장 중요한 부분 중 하나로 분류됩니다. 홍수로 인한 파괴 나 피해로부터 댐을 보호하기 위해 여수로가 건설됩니다.

수력 발전, 항해, 레크리에이션 및 어업의 중요성을 감안할 때 댐 건설 및 홍수 통제는 전 세계적으로 매우 중요한 문제로 간주 될 수 있습니다. 많은 유형의 배수로가 있지만 가장 일반적인 유형은 다음과 같습니다 : ogee 배수로, 자유 낙하 배수로, 사이펀 배수로, 슈트 배수로, 측면 채널 배수로, 터널 배수로, 샤프트 배수로 및 계단식 배수로.

그리고 모든 여수로는 입구 채널, 제어 구조, 배출 캐리어 및 출구 채널의 네 가지 필수 구성 요소로 구성됩니다. 특히 롤러 압축 콘크리트 (RCC) 댐 건설 기술과 더 쉽고 빠르며 저렴한 건설 기술로 분류 된 계단식 배수로 건설과 관련하여 최근 수십 년 동안 많은 계단식 배수로가 건설되었습니다 (Chanson 2002; Felder & Chanson 2011).

계단식 배수로 구조는 캐비테이션 위험을 감소시키는 에너지 소산 속도를 증가시킵니다 (Boes & Hager 2003b). 계단식 배수로는 다양한 조건에서 더 매력적으로 만드는 장점이 있습니다.

계단식 배수로의 흐름 거동은 일반적으로 낮잠, 천이 및 스키밍 흐름 체제의 세 가지 다른 영역으로 분류됩니다 (Chanson 2002). 유속이 낮을 때 nappe 흐름 체제가 발생하고 자유 낙하하는 낮잠의 시퀀스로 특징 지워지는 반면, 스키밍 흐름 체제에서는 물이 외부 계단 가장자리 위의 유사 바닥에서 일관된 흐름으로 계단 위로 흐릅니다.

또한 주요 흐름에서 3 차원 재순환 소용돌이가 발생한다는 것도 분명합니다 (예 : Chanson 2002; Gonzalez & Chanson 2008). 계단 가장자리 근처의 의사 바닥에서 흐름의 방향은 가상 바닥과 가상으로 정렬됩니다. Takahashi & Ohtsu (2012)에 따르면, 스키밍 흐름 체제에서 주어진 유속에 대해 흐름은 계단 가장자리 근처의 수평 계단면에 영향을 미치고 슈트 경사가 감소하면 충돌 영역의 면적이 증가합니다. 전이 흐름 체제는 나페 흐름과 스키밍 흐름 체제 사이에서 발생합니다. 계단식 배수로를 설계 할 때 스키밍 흐름 체계를 고려해야합니다 (예 : Chanson 1994, Matos 2000, Chanson 2002, Boes & Hager 2003a).

CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics), 즉 수력 공학의 수치 모델은 일반적으로 물리적 모델에 소요되는 총 비용과 시간을 줄여줍니다. 따라서 수치 모델은 실험 모델보다 빠르고 저렴한 것으로 분류되며 동시에 하나 이상의 목적으로 사용될 수도 있습니다. 사용 가능한 많은 CFD 소프트웨어 패키지가 있지만 가장 널리 사용되는 것은 FLOW-3D입니다. 이 연구에서는 Flow 3D 소프트웨어를 사용하여 유량이 서로 다른 두 모델에 대해 계단식 배수로에서 공기 농도, 속도 분포 및 동적 압력 분포를 시뮬레이션합니다.

Roshan et al. (2010)은 서로 다른 수의 계단 및 배출을 가진 계단식 배수로의 두 가지 물리적 모델에 대한 흐름 체제 및 에너지 소산 조사를 연구했습니다. 실험 모델의 기울기는 각각 19.2 %, 12 단계와 23 단계의 수입니다. 결과는 23 단계 물리적 모델에서 관찰 된 흐름 영역이 12 단계 모델보다 더 수용 가능한 것으로 간주되었음을 보여줍니다. 그러나 12 단계 모델의 에너지 손실은 23 단계 모델보다 더 많았습니다. 그리고 실험은 스키밍 흐름 체제에서 23 단계 모델의 에너지 소산이 12 단계 모델보다 약 12 ​​% 더 적다는 것을 관찰했습니다.

Ghaderi et al. (2020a)는 계단 크기와 유속이 다른 정련 매개 변수의 영향을 조사하기 위해 계단식 배수로에 대한 실험 연구를 수행했습니다. 그 결과, 흐름 체계가 냅페 흐름 체계에서 발생하는 최소 scouring 깊이와 같은 scouring 구멍 치수에 영향을 미친다는 것을 보여주었습니다. 또한 테일 워터 깊이와 계단 크기는 최대 scouring깊이에 대한 실제 매개 변수입니다. 테일 워터의 깊이를 6.31cm에서 8.54 및 11.82cm로 늘림으로써 수세 깊이가 각각 18.56 % 및 11.42 % 증가했습니다. 또한 이 증가하는 테일 워터 깊이는 scouring 길이를 각각 31.43 % 및 16.55 % 감소 시킵니다. 또한 유속을 높이면 Froude 수가 증가하고 흐름의 운동량이 증가하면 scouring이 촉진됩니다. 또한 결과는 중간의 scouring이 횡단면의 측벽보다 적다는 것을 나타냅니다. 계단식 배수로 하류의 최대 scouring 깊이를 예측 한 후 실험 결과와 비교하기 위한 실험식이 제안 되었습니다. 그리고 비교 결과 제안 된 공식은 각각 3.86 %와 9.31 %의 상대 오차와 최대 오차 내에서 scouring 깊이를 예측할 수 있음을 보여주었습니다.

Ghaderi et al. (2020b)는 사다리꼴 미로 모양 (TLS) 단계의 수치 조사를 했습니다. 결과는 이러한 유형의 배수로가 확대 비율 LT / Wt (LT는 총 가장자리 길이, Wt는 배수로의 폭)를 증가시키기 때문에 더 나은 성능을 갖는 것으로 관찰되었습니다. 또한 사다리꼴 미로 모양의 계단식 배수로는 더 큰 마찰 계수와 더 낮은 잔류 수두를 가지고 있습니다. 마찰 계수는 다양한 배율에 대해 0.79에서 1.33까지 다르며 평평한 계단식 배수로의 경우 대략 0.66과 같습니다. 또한 TLS 계단식 배수로에서 잔류 수두의 비율 (Hres / dc)은 약 2.89이고 평평한 계단식 배수로의 경우 약 4.32와 같습니다.

Shahheydari et al. (2015)는 Flow-3D 소프트웨어, RNG k-ε 모델 및 VOF (Volume of Fluid) 방법을 사용하여 배출 계수 및 에너지 소산과 같은 자유 표면 흐름의 프로파일을 연구하여 스키밍 흐름 체제에서 계단식 배수로에 대한 흐름을 조사했습니다. 실험 결과와 비교했습니다. 결과는 에너지 소산 율과 방전 계수율의 관계가 역으로 실험 모델의 결과와 잘 일치 함을 보여 주었다.

Mohammad Rezapour Tabari & Tavakoli (2016)는 계단 높이 (h), 계단 길이 (L), 계단 수 (Ns) 및 단위 폭의 방전 (q)과 같은 다양한 매개 변수가 계단식 에너지 ​​소산에 미치는 영향을 조사했습니다. 방수로. 그들은 해석에 FLOW-3D 소프트웨어를 사용하여 계단식 배수로에서 에너지 손실과 임계 흐름 깊이 사이의 관계를 평가했습니다. 또한 유동 난류에 사용되는 방정식과 표준 k-ɛ 모델을 풀기 위해 유한 체적 방법을 적용했습니다. 결과에 따르면 스텝 수가 증가하고 유량 배출량이 증가하면 에너지 손실이 감소합니다. 얻은 결과를 다른 연구와 비교하고 경험적, 수학적 조사를 수행하여 결국 합격 가능한 결과를 얻었습니다.

METHODOLOGY

ListenReadSpeaker webReader: ListenFor all numerical models the basic principle is very similar: a set of partial differential equations (PDE) present the physical problems. The flow of fluids (gas and liquid) are governed by the conservation laws of mass, momentum and energy. For Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), the PDE system is substituted by a set of algebraic equations which can be worked out by using numerical methods (Versteeg & Malalasekera 2007). Flow-3D uses the finite volume approach to solve the Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) equation, by applying the technique of Fractional Area/Volume Obstacle Representation (FAVOR) to define an obstacle (Flow Science Inc. 2012). Equations (1) and (2) are RANS and continuity equations with FAVOR variables that are applied for incompressible flows.

Turbulence modelling is one of three key elements in CFD (Gunal 1996). There are many types of turbulence models, but the most common are Zero-equation models, One-equation models, Two-equation models, Reynolds Stress/Flux models and Algebraic Stress/Flux models. In FLOW-3D software, five turbulence models are available. The formulation used in the FLOW-3D software differs slightly from other formulations that includes the influence of the fractional areas/volumes of the FAVORTM method and generalizes the turbulence production (or decay) associated with buoyancy forces. The latter generalization, for example, includes buoyancy effects associated with non-inertial accelerations.

The available turbulence models in Flow-3D software are the Prandtl Mixing Length Model, the One-Equation Turbulent Energy Model, the Two-Equation Standard  Model, the Two-Equation Renormalization-Group (RNG) Model and large Eddy Simulation Model (Flow Science Inc. 2012).In this research the RNG model was selected because this model is more commonly used than other models in dealing with particles; moreover, it is more accurate to work with air entrainment and other particles. In general, the RNG model is classified as a more widely-used application than the standard k-ɛ model. And in particular, the RNG model is more accurate in flows that have strong shear regions than the standard k-ɛ model and it is defined to describe low intensity turbulent flows. For the turbulent dissipation  it solves an additional transport equation:

The default values of RMTKE, CDIS1 and CNU differ, being 1.39, 1.42 and 0.085 respectively.

VOF and FAVOR are classifications of volume-fraction methods. In these two methods, firstly the area should be subdivided into a control volume grid or a small element. Each flow parameter like velocity, temperature and pressure values within the element are computed for each element containing liquids. Generally, these values represent the volumetric average of values in the elements.Numerous methods have been used recently to solve free infinite boundaries in the various numerical simulations. VOF is an easy and powerful method created based on the concept of a fractional intensity of fluid. A significant number of studies have confirmed that this method is more flexible and efficient than others dealing with the configurations of a complex free boundary. By using VOF technology the Flow-3D free surface was modelled and first declared in Hirt & Nichols (1981). In the VOF method there are three ingredients: a planner to define the surface, an algorithm for tracking the surface as a net mediator moving over a computational grid, and application of the boundary conditions to the surface. Configurations of the fluids are defined in terms of VOF function, F (x, y, z, t) (Hirt & Nichols 1981). And this VOF function shows the volume of flow per unit volume

The FAVOR method is a different method and uses another volume fraction technique, which is only used to define the geometry, such as the volume of liquid in each cell used to determine the position of fluid surfaces. Another fractional volume can be used to define the solid surface. Then, this information is used to determine the boundary conditions of the wall that the flow should be adapted for.

In this study, the experimental results of Ostad Mirza (2016) was simulated. In a channel composed of two 4 m long modules, with a transparent sidewall of height 0.6 m and 0.5 m width. The upstream chute slope (i.e. pseudo-bottom angle) Ɵ1 = 50°, the downstream chute slope Ɵ2 = 30° or 18.6°, the step heights h = 0.06 m, the total number of steps along the 50° chute 41 steps, the total number of steps along the 30° chute 34 steps and the total number of steps along the 18.6° chute 20 steps.

The flume inflow tool contained a jetbox with a maximum opening set to 0.12 meters, designed for passing the maximum unit discharge of 0.48 m2/s. The measurements of the flow properties (i.e. air concentration and velocity) were computed perpendicular to the pseudo-bottom as shown in Figure 1 at the centre of twenty stream-wise cross-sections, along the stepped chute, (i.e. in five steps up on the slope change and fifteen steps down on the slope change, namely from step number −09 to +23 on 50°–30° slope change, or from −09 to +15 on 50°–18.6° slope change, respectively).

Numerical model set-up

A 3D numerical model of hydraulic phenomena was simulated based on an experimental study by Ostad Mirza (2016). The water surcharge and flow pressure over the stepped spillway was computed for two models of a stepped spillway with different discharge for each model. In this study, the package was used to simulate the flow parameters such as air entrainment, velocity distribution and dynamic pressures. The solver uses the finite volume technique to discretize the computational domain. In every test run, one incompressible fluid flow with a free surface flow selected at 20̊ was used for this simulation model. Table 2 shows the variables used in test runs.Table 2

For stepped spillway simulation, several parameters should be specified to get accurate simulations, which is the scope of this research. Viscosity and turbulent, gravity and non-inertial reference frame, air entrainment, density evaluation and drift-flux should be activated for these simulations. There are five different choices in the ‘viscosity and turbulent’ option, in the viscosity flow and Renormalized Group (RNG) model. Then a dynamical model is selected as the second option, the ‘gravity and non-inertial reference frame’. Only the z-component was inputted as a negative 9.81 m/s2 and this value represents gravitational acceleration but in the same option the x and y components will be zero. Air entrainment is selected. Finally, in the drift-flux model, the density of phase one is input as (water) 1,000 kg/m3 and the density of phase two (air) as 1.225 kg/m3. Minimum volume fraction of phase one is input equal to 0.1 and maximum volume fraction of phase two to 1 to allow air concentration to reach 90%, then the option allowing gas to escape at free surface is selected, to obtain closer simulation.

The flow domain is divided into small regions relatively by the mesh in Flow-3D numerical model. Cells are the smallest part of the mesh, in which flow characteristics such as air concentration, velocity and dynamic pressure are calculated. The accuracy of the results and simulation time depends directly on the mesh block size so the cell size is very important. Orthogonal mesh was used in cartesian coordinate systems. A smaller cell size provides more accuracy for results, so we reduced the number of cells whilst including enough accuracy. In this study, the size of cells in x, y and z directions was selected as 0.015 m after several trials.

Figure 3 shows the 3D computational domain model 50–18.6 slope change, that is 6.0 m length, 0.50 m width and 4.23 m height. The 3D model of the computational domain model 50–30 slope changes this to 6.0 m length, 0.50 m width and 5.068 m height and the size of meshes in x, y, and z directions are 0.015 m. For the 50–18.6 slope change model: both total number of active and passive cells = 4,009,952, total number of active cells = 3,352,307, include real cells (used for solving the flow equations) = 3,316,269, open real cells = 3,316,269, fully blocked real cells equal to zero, external boundary cells were 36,038, inter-block boundary cells = 0 (Flow-3D report). For 50–30 slope change model: both total number of active and passive cells = 4,760,002, total number of active cells equal to 4,272,109, including real cells (used for solving the flow equations) were 3,990,878, open real cells = 3,990,878 fully blocked real cells = zero, external boundary cells were 281,231, inter-block boundary cells = 0 (Flow-3D report).

When solving the Navier-Stokes equation and continuous equations, boundary conditions should be applied. The most important work of boundary conditions is to create flow conditions similar to physical status. The Flow-3D software has many types of boundary condition; each type can be used for the specific condition of the models. The boundary conditions in Flow-3D are symmetry, continuative, specific pressure, grid overlay, wave, wall, periodic, specific velocity, outflow, and volume flow rate.

There are two options to input finite flow rate in the Flow-3D software either for inlet discharge of the system or for the outlet discharge of the domain: specified velocity and volume flow rate. In this research, the X-minimum boundary condition, volume flow rate, has been chosen. For X-maximum boundary condition, outflow was selected because there is nothing to be calculated at the end of the flume. The volume flow rate and the elevation of surface water was set for Q = 0.1 and 0.235 m3/s respectively (Figure 2).

The bottom (Z-min) is prepared as a wall boundary condition and the top (Z-max) is computed as a pressure boundary condition, and for both (Y-min) and (Y-max) as symmetry.

RESULTS AND DISCUSSION

ListenReadSpeaker webReader: Listen

The air concentration distribution profiles in two models of stepped spillway were obtained at an acquisition time equal to 25 seconds in skimming flow for both upstream and downstream of a slope change 50°–18.6° and 50°–30° for different discharge as in Table 2, and as shown in Figure 4 for 50°–18.6° slope change and Figure 5 for 50°–30° slope change configuration for dc/h = 4.6. The simulation results of the air concentration are very close to the experimental results in all curves and fairly close to that predicted by the advection-diffusion model for the air bubbles suggested by Chanson (1997) on a constant sloping chute.

But as is shown in all above mentioned figures it is clear that at the pseudo-bottom the CFD results of air concentration are less than experimental ones until the depth of water reaches a quarter of the total depth of water. Also the direction of the curves are parallel to each other when going up towards the surface water and are incorporated approximately near the surface water. For all curves, the cross-section is separate between upstream and downstream steps. Therefore the (-) sign for steps represents a step upstream of the slope change cross-section and the (+) sign represents a step downstream of the slope change cross-section.

The dimensionless velocity distribution (V/V90) profile was acquired at an acquisition time equal to 25 seconds in skimming flow of the upstream and downstream slope change for both 50°–18.6° and 50°–30° slope change. The simulation results are compared with the experimental ones showing that for all curves there is close similarity for each point between the observed and experimental results. The curves increase parallel to each other and they merge near at the surface water as shown in Figure 6 for slope change 50°–18.6° configuration and Figure 7 for slope change 50°–30° configuration. However, at step numbers +1 and +5 in Figure 7 there are few differences between the simulated and observed results, namely the simulation curves ascend regularly meaning the velocity increases regularly from the pseudo-bottom up to the surface water.

Figure 8 (50°–18.6° slope change) and Figure 9 (50°–30° slope change) compare the simulation results and the experimental results for the presented dimensionless dynamic pressure distribution for different points on the stepped spillway. The results show a good agreement with the experimental and numerical simulations in all curves. For some points, few discrepancies can be noted in pressure magnitudes between the simulated and the observed ones, but they are in the acceptable range. Although the experimental data do not completely agree with the simulated results, there is an overall agreement.

The pressure profiles were acquired at an acquisition time equal to 70 seconds in skimming flow on 50°–18.6°, where p is the measured dynamic pressure, h is step height and ϒ is water specific weight. A negative sign for steps represents a step upstream of the slope change cross-section and a positive sign represents a step downstream of the slope change cross-section.

Figure 10 shows the experimental streamwise development of dimensionless pressure on the 50°–18.6° slope change for dc/h = 4.6, x/l = 0.35 on 50° sloping chute and x/l = 0.3 on 18.6° sloping chute compared with the numerical simulation. It is obvious from Figure 10 that the streamwise development of dimensionless pressure before slope change (steps number −1, −2 and −3) both of the experimental and simulated results are close to each other. However, it is clear that there is a little difference between the results of the streamwise development of dimensionless pressure at step numbers +1, +2 and +3. Moreover, from step number +3 to the end, the curves get close to each other.

It is apparent that the outcomes of the experimental work are close to the numerical results, however, the results of the simulation are above the experimental ones before the slope change, but the results of the simulation descend below the experimental ones after the slope change till the end.

In this research, numerical modelling was attempted to investigate the effect of abrupt slope change on the flow properties (air entrainment, velocity distribution and dynamic pressure) over a stepped spillway with two different models and various flow rates in a skimming flow regime by using the CFD technique. The numerical model was verified and compared with the experimental results of Ostad Mirza (2016). The same domain of the numerical model was inputted as in experimental models to reduce errors as much as possible.

Flow-3D is a well modelled tool that deals with particles. In this research, the model deals well with air entrainment particles by observing their results with experimental results. And the reason for the small difference between the numerical and the experimental results is that the program deals with particles more accurately than the laboratory. In general, both numerical and experimental results showed that near to the slope change the flow bulking, air entrainment, velocity distribution and dynamic pressure are greatly affected by abrupt slope change on the steps. Although the extent of the slope change was relatively small, the influence of the slope change was major on flow characteristics.

The Renormalized Group (RNG) model was selected as a turbulence solver. For 3D modelling, orthogonal mesh was used as a computational domain and the mesh grid size used for X, Y, and Z direction was equal to 0.015 m. In CFD modelling, air concentration and velocity distribution were recorded for a period of 25 seconds, but dynamic pressure was recorded for a period of 70 seconds. The results showed that there is a good agreement between the numerical and the physical models. So, it can be concluded that the proposed CFD model is very suitable for use in simulating and analysing the design of hydraulic structures.

이 연구에서 수치 모델링은 두 가지 다른 모델과 다양한 유속을 사용하여 스키밍 흐름 영역에서 계단식 배수로에 대한 유동 특성 (공기 혼입, 속도 분포 및 동적 압력)에 대한 급격한 경사 변화의 영향을 조사하기 위해 시도되었습니다. CFD 기술. 수치 모델을 검증하여 Ostad Mirza (2016)의 실험 결과와 비교 하였다. 오차를 최대한 줄이기 위해 실험 모형과 동일한 수치 모형을 입력 하였다.

Flow-3D는 파티클을 다루는 잘 모델링 된 도구입니다. 이 연구에서 모델은 실험 결과를 통해 결과를 관찰하여 공기 혼입 입자를 잘 처리합니다. 그리고 수치와 실험 결과의 차이가 작은 이유는 프로그램이 실험실보다 입자를 더 정확하게 다루기 때문입니다. 일반적으로 수치 및 실험 결과는 경사에 가까워지면 유동 벌킹, 공기 혼입, 속도 분포 및 동적 압력이 계단의 급격한 경사 변화에 크게 영향을받는 것으로 나타났습니다. 사면 변화의 정도는 상대적으로 작았지만 사면 변화의 영향은 유동 특성에 큰 영향을 미쳤다.

Renormalized Group (RNG) 모델이 난류 솔버로 선택되었습니다. 3D 모델링의 경우 계산 영역으로 직교 메쉬가 사용되었으며 X, Y, Z 방향에 사용 된 메쉬 그리드 크기는 0.015m입니다. CFD 모델링에서 공기 농도와 속도 분포는 25 초 동안 기록되었지만 동적 압력은 70 초 동안 기록되었습니다. 결과는 수치 모델과 물리적 모델간에 좋은 일치가 있음을 보여줍니다. 따라서 제안 된 CFD 모델은 수력 구조물의 설계 시뮬레이션 및 해석에 매우 적합하다는 결론을 내릴 수 있습니다.

Abstract

The system designed in this study involves a three-dimensional (3D) microelectronic mechanical system chip structure using DNA printing technology. We employed diverse diameters and cavity thickness for the heater. DNA beads were placed in this rapid array, and the spray flow rate was assessed. Because DNA cannot be obtained easily, rapidly deploying DNA while estimating the total amount of DNA being sprayed is imperative. DNA printings were collected in a multiplexer driver microelectronic mechanical system head, and microflow estimation was conducted. Flow-3D was used to simulate the internal flow field and flow distribution of the 3D spray room. The simulation was used to calculate the time and pressure required to generate heat bubbles as well as the corresponding mean outlet speed of the fluid. The “outlet speed status” function in Flow-3D was used as a power source for simulating the ejection of fluid by the chip nozzle. The actual chip generation process was measured, and the starting voltage curve was analyzed. Finally, experiments on flow rate were conducted, and the results were discussed. The density of the injection nozzle was 50, the size of the heater was 105 μm × 105 μm, and the size of the injection nozzle hole was 80 μm. The maximum flow rate was limited to approximately 3.5 cc. The maximum flow rate per minute required a power between 3.5 W and 4.5 W. The number of injection nozzles was multiplied by 100. On chips with enlarged injection nozzle density, experiments were conducted under a fixed driving voltage of 25 V. The flow curve obtained from various pulse widths and operating frequencies was observed. The operating frequency was 2 KHz, and the pulse width was 4 μs. At a pulse width of 5 μs and within the power range of 4.3–5.7 W, the monomer was injected at a flow rate of 5.5 cc/min. The results of this study may be applied to estimate the flow rate and the total amount of the ejection liquid of a DNA liquid.

Flow-3D는 3D 스프레이 룸의 내부 유동장과 유동 분포를 시뮬레이션 하는데 사용되었습니다. 시뮬레이션은 열 거품을 생성하는데 필요한 시간과 압력뿐만 아니라 유체의 해당 평균 출구 속도를 계산하는데 사용되었습니다.

Flow-3D의 “출구 속도 상태”기능은 칩 노즐에 의한 유체 배출 시뮬레이션을 위한 전원으로 사용되었습니다. 실제 칩 생성 프로세스를 측정하고 시작 전압 곡선을 분석했습니다. 마지막으로 유속 실험을 하고 그 결과를 논의했습니다. 분사 노즐의 밀도는 50, 히터의 크기는 105μm × 105μm, 분사 노즐 구멍의 크기는 80μm였다. 최대 유량은 약 3.5cc로 제한되었습니다. 분당 최대 유량은 3.5W에서 4.5W 사이의 전력이 필요했습니다. 분사 노즐의 수에 100을 곱했습니다. 분사 노즐 밀도가 확대 된 칩에 대해 25V의 고정 구동 전압에서 실험을 수행했습니다. 얻은 유동 곡선 다양한 펄스 폭과 작동 주파수에서 관찰되었습니다. 작동 주파수는 2KHz이고 펄스 폭은 4μs입니다. 5μs의 펄스 폭과 4.3–5.7W의 전력 범위 내에서 단량체는 5.5cc / min의 유속으로 주입되었습니다. 이 연구의 결과는 DNA 액체의 토 출액의 유량과 총량을 추정하는 데 적용될 수 있습니다.

Introduction

잉크젯 프린트 헤드 기술은 매우 중요하며, 잉크젯 기술의 거대한 발전은 주로 잉크젯 프린트 헤드 기술의 원리 개발에서 시작되었습니다. 잉크젯 인쇄 연구를 위한 대규모 액적 생성기 포함 [ 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 , 6 , 7 , 8]. 연속 식 잉크젯 시스템은 고주파 응답과 고속 인쇄의 장점이 있습니다. 그러나이 방법의 잉크젯 프린트 헤드의 구조는 더 복잡하고 양산이 어려운 가압 장치, 대전 전극, 편향 전계가 필요하다. 주문형 잉크젯 시스템의 잉크젯 프린트 헤드는 구조가 간단하고 잉크젯 헤드의 다중 노즐을 쉽게 구현할 수 있으며 디지털화 및 색상 지정이 쉽고 이미지 품질은 비교적 좋지만 일반적인 잉크 방울 토출 속도는 낮음 [ 9 , 10 , 11 ].

핫 버블 잉크젯 헤드의 총 노즐 수는 수백 또는 수천에 달할 수 있습니다. 노즐은 매우 미세하여 풍부한 조화 색상과 부드러운 메쉬 톤을 생성할 수 있습니다. 잉크 카트리지와 노즐이 일체형 구조를 이루고 있으며, 잉크 카트리지 교체시 잉크젯 헤드가 동시에 업데이트되므로 노즐 막힘에 대한 걱정은 없지만 소모품 낭비가 발생하고 상대적으로 높음 비용. 주문형 잉크젯 기술은 배출해야 하는 그래픽 및 텍스트 부분에만 잉크 방울을 배출하고 빈 영역에는 잉크 방울이 배출되지 않습니다. 이 분사 방법은 잉크 방울을 충전할 필요가 없으며 전극 및 편향 전기장을 충전할 필요도 없습니다. 노즐 구조가 간단하고 노즐의 멀티 노즐 구현이 용이하며, 출력 품질이 더욱 개선되었습니다. 펄스 제어를 통해 디지털화가 쉽습니다. 그러나 잉크 방울의 토출 속도는 일반적으로 낮습니다. 열 거품 잉크젯, 압전 잉크젯 및 정전기 잉크젯의 세 가지 일반적인 유형이 있습니다. 물론 다른 유형이 있습니다.

압전 잉크젯 기술의 실현 원리는 인쇄 헤드의 노즐 근처에 많은 소형 압전 세라믹을 배치하면 압전 크리스탈이 전기장의 작용으로 변형됩니다. 잉크 캐비티에서 돌출되어 노즐에서 분사되는 패턴 데이터 신호는 압전 크리스탈의 변형을 제어한 다음 잉크 분사량을 제어합니다. 압전 MEMS 프린트 헤드를 사용한 주문형 드롭 하이브리드 인쇄 [ 12]. 열 거품 잉크젯 기술의 실현 원리는 가열 펄스 (기록 신호)의 작용으로 노즐의 발열체 온도가 상승하여 근처의 잉크 용매가 증발하여 많은 수의 핵 형성 작은 거품을 생성하는 것입니다. 내부 거품의 부피는 계속 증가합니다. 일정 수준에 도달하면 생성된 압력으로 인해 잉크가 노즐에서 분사되고 최종적으로 기판 표면에 도달하여 패턴 정보가 재생됩니다 [ 13 , 14 , 15 , 16 , 17 , 18 ].

“3D 제품 프린팅”및 “증분 빠른 제조”의 의미는 진화했으며 모든 증분 제품 제조 기술을 나타냅니다. 이는 이전 제작과는 다른 의미를 가지고 있지만, 자동 제어 하에 소재를 쌓아 올리는 3D 작업 제작 과정의 공통적 인 특징을 여전히 반영하고 있습니다 [ 19 , 20 , 21 , 22 , 23 , 24 ].

이 개발 시스템은 열 거품 분사 기술입니다. 이 빠른 어레이에 DNA 비드를 배치하고 스프레이 유속을 평가하기 위해 다른 히터 직경과 캐비티 두께를 설계하는 것입니다. DNA 제트 칩의 부스트 회로 시스템은 큰 흐름을 구동하기위한 신호 소스입니다. 목적은 분사되는 DNA 용액의 양과 출력을 조정하는 것입니다. 입력 전압을 더 높은 출력 전압으로 변환해야 하는 경우 부스트 컨버터가 유일한 선택입니다. 부스트 컨버터는 내부 금속 산화물 반도체 전계 효과 트랜지스터 (MOSFET)를 통해 전압을 충전하여 부스트 출력의 목적을 달성하고, MOSFET이 꺼지면 인덕터는 부하 정류를 통해 방전됩니다.

인덕터의 충전과 방전 사이의 변환 프로세스는 인덕터를 통한 전압의 방향을 반대로 한 다음 점차적으로 입력 작동 전압보다 높은 전압을 증가시킵니다. MOSFET의 스위칭 듀티 사이클은 확실히 부스트 비율을 결정합니다. MOSFET의 정격 전류와 부스트 컨버터의 부스트 비율은 부스트 ​​컨버터의 부하 전류의 상한을 결정합니다. MOSFET의 정격 전압은 출력 전압의 상한을 결정합니다. 일부 부스트 컨버터는 정류기와 MOSFET을 통합하여 동기식 정류를 제공합니다. 통합 MOSFET은 정확한 제로 전류 턴 오프를 달성하여 부스트 변압기를 보다 효율적으로 만듭니다. 최대 전력 점 추적 장치를 통해 입력 전력을 실시간으로 모니터링합니다. 입력 전압이 최대 입력 전력 지점에 도달하면 부스트 컨버터가 작동하기 시작하여 부스트 컨버터가 최대 전력 출력 지점으로 유리 기판에 DNA 인쇄를 하는 데 적합합니다. 일정한 온 타임 생성 회로를 통해 온 타임이 온도 및 칩의 코너 각도에 영향을 받지 않아 시스템의 안정성이 향상됩니다.

잉크젯 프린트 헤드에 사용되는 기술은 매우 중요합니다. 잉크젯 기술의 엄청난 발전은 주로 잉크젯 프린팅에 사용되는 대형 액적 이젝터 [ 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 , 6 , 7 , 8 ]를 포함하여 잉크젯 프린트 헤드 기술의 이론 개발에서 시작되었습니다 . 연속 잉크젯 시스템은 고주파 응답과 고속 인쇄의 장점을 가지고 있습니다. 잉크젯 헤드의 총 노즐 수는 수백 또는 수천에 달할 수 있으며 이러한 노즐은 매우 복잡합니다. 노즐은 풍부하고 조화로운 색상과 부드러운 메쉬 톤을 생성할 수 있습니다 [ 9 , 10 ,11 ]. 잉크젯은 열 거품 잉크젯, 압전 잉크젯 및 정전 식 잉크젯의 세 가지 주요 유형으로 분류할 수 있습니다. 다른 유형도 사용 중입니다. 압전 잉크젯의 기능은 다음과 같습니다. 많은 소형 압전 세라믹이 잉크젯 헤드 노즐 근처에 배치됩니다. 압전 결정은 전기장 아래에서 변형됩니다. 그 후, 잉크는 잉크 캐비티에서 압착되어 노즐에서 배출됩니다. 패턴의 데이터 신호는 압전 결정의 변형을 제어한 다음 분사되는 잉크의 양을 제어합니다. 압전 마이크로 전자 기계 시스템 (MEMS) 잉크젯 헤드는 하이브리드 인쇄에 사용됩니다. [ 12]. 열 버블 잉크젯 기술은 다음과 같이 작동합니다. 가열 펄스 (즉, 기록 신호) 하에서 노즐의 가열 구성 요소의 온도가 상승하여 근처의 잉크 용매를 증발시켜 많은 양의 작은 핵 기포를 생성합니다. 내부 기포의 부피가 지속적으로 증가합니다. 압력이 일정 수준에 도달하면 노즐에서 잉크가 분출되고 잉크가 기판 표면에 도달하여 패턴과 메시지가 표시됩니다 [ 13 , 14 , 15 , 16 , 17 , 18 ].

3 차원 (3D) 제품 프린팅 및 빠른 프로토 타입 기술의 발전에는 모든 빠른 프로토 타입의 생산 기술이 포함됩니다. 래피드 프로토 타입 기술은 기존 생산 방식과는 다르지만 3D 제품 프린팅 생산 과정의 일부 특성을 공유합니다. 구체적으로 자동 제어 [ 19 , 20 , 21 , 22 , 23 , 24 ] 하에서 자재를 쌓아 올립니다 .

이 연구에서 개발된 시스템은 열 기포 방출 기술을 사용했습니다. 이 빠른 어레이에 DNA 비드를 배치하기 위해 히터에 대해 다른 직경과 다른 공동 두께가 사용되었습니다. 그 후, 스프레이 유속을 평가했다. DNA 제트 칩의 부스트 회로 시스템은 큰 흐름을 구동하기위한 신호 소스입니다. 목표는 분사되는 DNA 액체의 양과 출력을 조정하는 것입니다. 입력 전압을 더 높은 출력 전압으로 수정해야하는 경우 승압 컨버터가 유일한 옵션입니다. 승압 컨버터는 내부 금속 산화물 반도체 전계 효과 트랜지스터 (MOSFET)를 충전하여 출력 전압을 증가시킵니다. MOSFET이 꺼지면 부하 정류를 통해 인덕턴스가 방전됩니다. 충전과 방전 사이에서 인덕터를 변경하는 과정은 인덕터를 통과하는 전압의 방향을 변경합니다. 전압은 입력 작동 전압을 초과하는 지점까지 점차적으로 증가합니다. MOSFET 스위치의 듀티 사이클은 부스트 ​​비율을 결정합니다. MOSFET의 승압 컨버터의 정격 전류와 부스트 비율은 승압 컨버터의 부하 전류의 상한을 결정합니다. MOSFET의 정격 전류는 출력 전압의 상한을 결정합니다. 일부 승압 컨버터는 정류기와 MOSFET을 통합하여 동기식 정류를 제공합니다. 통합 MOSFET은 정밀한 제로 전류 셧다운을 실현할 수 있으므로 셋업 컨버터의 효율성을 높일 수 있습니다. 최대 전력 점 추적 장치는 입력 전력을 실시간으로 모니터링하는 데 사용되었습니다. 입력 전압이 최대 입력 전력 지점에 도달하면 승압 컨버터가 작동을 시작합니다. 스텝 업 컨버터는 DNA 프린팅을 위한 최대 전력 출력 포인트가 있는 유리 기판에 사용됩니다.

이 연구는 히터 크기, 히터 번호 및 루프 저항과 같은 특정 매개 변수를 조작하여 5 가지 유형의 액체 배출 챔버 구조를 설계했습니다. 표 1 은 측정 결과를 나열합니다. 이 시스템은 다양한 히터의 루프 저항을 분석했습니다. 100 개 히터 설계를 완료하기 위해 2 세트의 히터를 사용하여 각 단일 회로 시리즈를 통과하기 때문에 100 개의 히터를 설계할 때 총 루프 저항은 히터 50 개의 총 루프 저항보다 하나 더 커야 합니다. 이 연구에서 MEMS 칩에서 기포를 배출하는 과정에서 저항 층의 면저항은 29 Ω / m 2입니다. 따라서 모델 A의 총 루프 저항이 가장 컸습니다. 일반 사이즈 모델 (모델 B1, C, D, E)의 두 배였습니다. 모델 B1, C, D 및 E의 총 루프 저항은 약 29 Ω / m 2 입니다. 표 1 에 따르면 오류 범위는 허용된 설계 값 이내였습니다. 따라서야 연구에서 설계된 각 유형의 단일 칩은 동일한 생산 절차 결과를 가지며 후속 유량 측정에 사용되었습니다.

설계된 시스템은 기포 성장 조건을 관찰하기 위해 개방형 액체 공급 방법을 채택했습니다. 이미지 관찰을 위해 발광 다이오드 (LED, Nichia NSPW500GS-K1, 3.1V 백색 LED 5mm)를 사용하는 동기식 플래시 방식을 사용하여 동기식 지연 광원을 생성했습니다. 이 시스템은 또한 전하 결합 장치 (CCD, Flir Grasshopper3 GigE GS3-PGE-50S5C-C)를 사용하여 이미지를 캡처했습니다. 그림 1핵 형성, 성장, 거품 생성에서 소산에 이르는 거품의 과정을 보여줍니다. 이 시스템은 기포의 성장 및 소산 과정을 확인하여 시작 전압을 관찰하는 데 사용할 수 있습니다. 마이크로 채널의 액체 공급 방법은 LED가 깜빡이는 시간을 가장 큰 기포 발생에 필요한 시간 (15μs)으로 설정했습니다. 이 디자인은 부적합한 깜박임 시간으로 인한 잘못된 판단과 거품 이미지 캡처 불가능을 방지합니다.

Figure 5 depicts the calculation results of the 2D X-Z cross section. At 100 μs and 200 μs, the fluid injection orifice did not completely fill the chamber.

Thus, subsequent calculation simulations employed 5 KHz as the reference operating frequency. The calculation simulation results were calculated according to the operating frequency of the impact.

Conclusions

이 연구는 DNA 프린팅 IDMH를 제공하고 미세 유체 흐름 추정을 수행했습니다. 설계된 DNA 스프레이 캐비티와 20V의 구동 전압에서 다양한 펄스 폭의 유동 성능이 펄스 폭에 따라 증가하는 것으로 밝혀졌습니다.

E1 유형 유량 테스트는 해당 유량이 3.1cc / min으로 증가함에 따라 유량이 전력 변화에 영향을 받는 것으로 나타났습니다. 동력이 증가함에 따라 유량은 0.75cc / min에서 3.5cc / min으로 최대 6.5W까지 증가했습니다. 동력이 더 증가하면 유량은 에너지와 함께 증가하지 않습니다. 이것은 이 테이블 디자인이 가장 크다는 것을 보여줍니다. 유속은 3.5cc / 분이었다.
작동 주파수가 2KHz이고 펄스 폭이 4μs 및 5μs 인 특수 설계된 DNA 스프레이 룸 구조에서 다양한 전력 조건 하에서 유량 변화를 관찰했습니다. 4.3–5.87 W의 출력 범위 내에서 주입 된 모노머의 유속은 5.5cc / 분이었습니다. 이것은 힘이 증가해도 변하지 않았습니다. DNA는 귀중하고 쉽게 얻을 수 없습니다. 이 실험을 통해 우리는 DNA가 뿌려진 마이크로 어레이 바이오칩의 수천 개의 지점에 필요한 총 DNA 양을 정확하게 추정 할 수 있습니다.

Abstract

터널 배수로는 높은 자유 표면 유속이 설정되는 배수로 유형 중 하나입니다. 회전 가속과 난류 흐름의 불규칙성으로 인해 오목한 수직 굽힘에서 압력이 증가합니다. 물리적 모델은 이 현상을 분석하는 가장 좋은 도구입니다.

모든 실제 프로토 타입 상태 분석을 포괄하는 데 필요한 물리적 모델의 수가 너무 많아 배치 및 비용 측면에서 비실용적입니다. 따라서 FLOW-3D 소프트웨어는 가능한 모든 실제 대안을 포괄하는 오목한 굴곡 터널의 난류 흐름 데이터베이스를 분석하고 생성하기 위해 선택되었습니다.

이 소프트웨어는 방전과 형상이 다른 다양한 터널을 시뮬레이션했습니다. 수치 결과는 Alborz Dam 터널 배수로의 건설 된 물리적 모델의 실험 결과로 검증되었으며 만족스러운 동의를 얻었습니다. 차원 분석은 문제의 관련 변수를 차원 없는 매개 변수로 그룹화하는 데 사용됩니다.

이러한 매개 변수는 인공 신경망 시뮬레이션에 사용됩니다. 결과는 Flow-3D 소프트웨어로 얻은 무 차원 매개 변수와 신경망에 의해 예측된 변수 사이의 상관 계수 R2 = 0.95를 보여 주었으며, 이와 관련하여 난류 모델링을 통해 얻은 데이터베이스를 기반으로 한 인공 신경망이 결론을 내릴 수있었습니다. 압력 예측을 위한 강력한 도구입니다.

현재 연구에서 FLOW-3D 소프트웨어는 처음에 다양한 크기와 배출의 터널 배수로에서 난류 흐름을 시뮬레이션하는데 사용되었습니다. 결과는 이란 에너지부 물 연구소에서 제공한 Alborz 저장 댐에서 얻은 실제 데이터와 비교하여 검증되었습니다.

시뮬레이션에는 다양한 난류 모델이 사용되었으며 RNG 방법이 관찰된 실제 결과와 가장 잘 일치하는 것으로 나타났습니다. 직경이 3 ~ 15m 인 다양한 터널 배수로, 곡률 반경 3 개, 거의 모든 실제 사례를 포괄하는 3개의 배출이 시뮬레이션에 사용되었습니다.

차원 분석을 사용하여 무 차원 매개 변수를 생성하고 문제의 변수 수를 줄였으며 마지막으로 두 개의 주요 무 차원 그룹이 결정되었습니다. 이러한 무 차원 변수 간의 관계를 얻기 위해 신경망을 사용하고 터널 배수로의 오목한 굴곡에서 압력 예측 단계에서 0.95의 상관 계수를 얻었습니다.

압력 계산 결과는 다른 일반적인 방법으로 얻은 결과와 비교되었습니다. 비교는 신경망 결과가 훨씬 더 정확하고 배수로 터널의 오목한 곡률에서 압력을 예측하는 강력한 도구로 간주 될 수 있음을 나타냅니다.

In order to research the influence of the guide vane on liquid transmission performance in a tank under microgravity, simulation analysis was carried out with FLOW-3D software. Firstly, it compared the working condition under the charging rate of 10% with the corresponding experiment results of the drop tower and validated the correctness of the simulation process. And then it changed the structure parameters of the guide vane, researched the influence of different quantity, gap and thickness on climbing rate of liquid, and analyzed the causing reasons of these effects in-depth. This paper provided a reference for the design of internal guiding vane of microgravity tank.

Flow-induced Shear Stress Confers Resistance to Carboplatin in an Adherent Three-Dimensional Model for Ovarian Cancer: A Role for EGFR-Targeted Photoimmunotherapy Informed by Physical Stress

난소암에 대한 일관된 3차원 모델에서 카보플라틴에 대한 유동에 의한 전단응력변화에 관한 연구

Abstract

A key reason for the persistently grim statistics associated with metastatic ovarian cancer is resistance to conventional agents, including platinum-based chemotherapies. A major source of treatment failure is the high degree of genetic and molecular heterogeneity, which results from significant underlying genomic instability, as well as stromal and physical cues in the microenvironment. Ovarian cancer commonly disseminates via transcoelomic routes to distant sites, which is associated with the frequent production of malignant ascites, as well as the poorest prognosis. In addition to providing a cell and protein-rich environment for cancer growth and progression, ascitic fluid also confers physical stress on tumors. An understudied area in ovarian cancer research is the impact of fluid shear stress on treatment failure. Here, we investigate the effect of fluid shear stress on response to platinum-based chemotherapy and the modulation of molecular pathways associated with aggressive disease in a perfusion model for adherent 3D ovarian cancer nodules. Resistance to carboplatin is observed under flow with a concomitant increase in the expression and activation of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) as well as downstream signaling members mitogen-activated protein kinase/extracellular signal-regulated kinase (MEK) and extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK). The uptake of platinum by the 3D ovarian cancer nodules was significantly higher in flow cultures compared to static cultures. A downregulation of phospho-focal adhesion kinase (p-FAK), vinculin, and phospho-paxillin was observed following carboplatin treatment in both flow and static cultures. Interestingly, low-dose anti-EGFR photoimmunotherapy (PIT), a targeted photochemical modality, was found to be equally effective in ovarian tumors grown under flow and static conditions. These findings highlight the need to further develop PIT-based combinations that target the EGFR, and sensitize ovarian cancers to chemotherapy in the context of flow-induced shear stress.

전이성 난소 암과 관련된 지속적으로 암울한 통계의 주요 이유는 백금 기반 화학 요법을 포함한 기존 약제에 대한 내성 때문입니다. 치료 실패의 주요 원인은 높은 수준의 유전적 및 분자적 이질성이며, 이는 중요한 기본 게놈 불안정성과 미세 환경의 기질 및 물리적 단서로 인해 발생합니다.

난소 암은 흔히 transcoelomic 경로를 통해 먼 부위로 전파되며, 이는 악성 복수의 빈번한 생산과 가장 나쁜 예후와 관련이 있습니다. 암 성장 및 진행을위한 세포 및 단백질이 풍부한 환경을 제공하는 것 외에도 복수 액은 종양에 물리적 스트레스를 부여합니다. 난소 암 연구에서 잘 연구되지 않은 분야는 유체 전단 응력이 치료 실패에 미치는 영향입니다.

여기, 우리는 백금 기반 화학 요법에 대한 반응과 부착 3D 난소 암 결절에 대한 관류 모델에서 공격적인 질병과 관련된 분자 경로의 변조에 대한 유체 전단 응력의 효과를 조사합니다.

카르보플라틴에 대한 내성은 상피 성장 인자 수용체 (EGFR)의 발현 및 활성화의 수반되는 증가 뿐만 아니라 다운 스트림 신호 구성원인 미토겐 활성화 단백질 키나제/세포 외 신호 조절 키나제 (MEK) 및 세포 외 신호 조절과 함께 관찰됩니다. 키나아제 (ERK). 3D 난소 암 결절에 의한 백금 흡수는 정적 배양에 비해 유동 배양에서 상당히 높았습니다.

포스 포-포컬 접착 키나제 (p-FAK), 빈 쿨린 및 포스 포-팍 실린의 하향 조절은 유동 및 정적 배양 모두에서 카보 플 라틴 처리 후 관찰되었습니다. 흥미롭게도, 표적 광 화학적 양식 인 저용량 항 EGFR 광 면역 요법 (PIT)은 유동 및 정적 조건에서 성장한 난소 종양에서 똑같이 효과적인 것으로 밝혀졌습니다.

이러한 발견은 EGFR을 표적으로하는 PIT 기반 조합을 추가로 개발하고 흐름 유도 전단 응력의 맥락에서 화학 요법에 난소 암을 민감하게 할 필요성을 강조합니다.

Figure 5 The effects of flow-induced shear stress on 3D ovarian cancer biology. (A) Western blot analysis of OVCAR-5 tumors was performed 7 days after culture under static or flow conditions. A flow-induced increase in EGFR and p-ERK, compared to static cultures, was observed. Conversely, a reduction in p-FAK, p-Paxillin, and Vinculin was observed under flow, relative to static conditions. (B) Western blot analysis of 3D OVCAR-5 tumors was performed 11 days after culture under static or flow conditions, including 4 days of treatment with 500 µM carboplatin, and respective controls. In both static and flow 3D cultures, carboplatin treatment resulted in downregulation of EGFR, FAK, p-Paxillin, Paxillin, and Vinculin. Upregulation of p-ERK was observed after carboplatin treatment in both static and flow 3D cultures. (C) Baseline levels of EGFR activity and expression are maintained by a complex array of factors, including recycling and degradation of the activated receptor complex. Flow-induced shear stress has been shown to cause a posttranslational up-regulation of EGFR expression and activation, likely resulting from increased receptor recycling and decreased EGFR degradation. Activation of EGFR results in ERK phosphorylation to induce gene expression, ultimately leading to cell proliferation, survival, and chemoresistance. FAK and other tyrosine kinases are activated by the engagement of integrins with the ECM. Subsequent phosphorylation of paxillin by FAK not only influences the remodeling of the actin cytoskeleton, but also modulates vinculin activation to regulate mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) cascades, thereby stimulating pro-survival gene expression.

생체 유체에서 자성 입자의 연속 흐름 분리 : 마이크로 장치 형상이 분리 성능을 어떻게 결정합니까?

Abstract

The use of functionalized magnetic particles for the detection or separation of multiple chemicals and biomolecules from biofluids continues to attract significant attention. After their incubation with the targeted substances, the beads can be magnetically recovered to perform analysis or diagnostic tests. Particle recovery with permanent magnets in continuous-flow microdevices has gathered great attention in the last decade due to the multiple advantages of microfluidics. As such, great efforts have been made to determine the magnetic and fluidic conditions for achieving complete particle capture; however, less attention has been paid to the effect of the channel geometry on the system performance, although it is key for designing systems that simultaneously provide high particle recovery and flow rates. Herein, we address the optimization of Y-Y-shaped microchannels, where magnetic beads are separated from blood and collected into a buffer stream by applying an external magnetic field. The influence of several geometrical features (namely cross section shape, thickness, length, and volume) on both bead recovery and system throughput is studied. For that purpose, we employ an experimentally validated Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) numerical model that considers the dominant forces acting on the beads during separation. Our results indicate that rectangular, long devices display the best performance as they deliver high particle recovery and high throughput. Thus, this methodology could be applied to the rational design of lab-on-a-chip devices for any magnetically driven purification, enrichment or isolation.

생체 유체에서 여러 화학 물질과 생체 분자의 검출 또는 분리를 위한 기능화된 자성 입자의 사용은 계속해서 상당한 관심을 받고 있습니다. 표적 물질과 함께 배양 한 후 비드는 자기적으로 회수되어 분석 또는 진단 테스트를 수행 할 수 있습니다.

연속 흐름 마이크로 장치에서 영구 자석을 사용한 입자 회수는 마이크로 유체의 여러 장점으로 인해 지난 10 년 동안 큰 관심을 모았습니다. 따라서 완전한 입자 포획을 달성하기 위한 자기 및 유체 조건을 결정하기 위해 많은 노력을 기울였습니다.

그러나 높은 입자 회수율과 유속을 동시에 제공하는 시스템을 설계하는데 있어 핵심이기는 하지만 시스템 성능에 대한 채널 형상의 영향에 대해서는 덜 주의를 기울였습니다.

여기에서 우리는 자기 비드가 혈액에서 분리되어 외부 자기장을 적용하여 버퍼 스트림으로 수집되는 Y-Y 모양의 마이크로 채널의 최적화를 다룹니다. 비드 회수 및 시스템 처리량에 대한 여러 기하학적 특징 (즉, 단면 형상, 두께, 길이 및 부피)의 영향을 연구합니다.

이를 위해 분리 중에 비드에 작용하는 지배적인 힘을 고려하는 실험적으로 검증된 CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) 수치 모델을 사용합니다.

우리의 결과는 직사각형의 긴 장치가 높은 입자 회수율과 높은 처리량을 제공하기 때문에 최고의 성능을 보여줍니다. 따라서 이 방법론은 자기 구동 정제, 농축 또는 분리를 위한 랩 온어 칩 장치의 합리적인 설계에 적용될 수 있습니다.

The Straightening of a River Meander Leads to Extensive Losses in Flow Complexity and Ecosystem Services

Abstract

하천 복원 노력을 지원하기 위해 우리는 하천 파괴 속도를 늦출 필요가 있습니다. 이 연구는 하천 곡률 보호를 위해 구불 구불 한 하천이 곧게 펴질 때 수리적 복잡성 손실에 대한 자세한 설명을 제공합니다.

전산 유체 역학 (CFD) 모델링을 사용하여 채널 곡률 (C)이 잘 확립된 사행 굽힘 (C = 0.77)에서 곡률이 없는 직선 채널 (C = 0)로 저하되는 9 개의 시뮬레이션에서 유동 역학의 차이를 문서화했습니다.

공변량을 제어하고 수리적 복잡성에 대한 손실률을 늦추기 위해 각 9 개 채널 구현은 동등한 베드 형태 지형을 가졌습니다. 분석된 수력학적 변수에는 흐름 표면 고도, 흐름 방향 및 횡단 단위 배출, 흐름 방향, 가로 방향 및 수직 방향의 유속, 베드 전단 응력, 흐름 함수 및 채널 베드에서의 수직 저 유량 유속 비율이 포함되었습니다.

수력 복잡성의 손실은 처음에 수로를 C = 0.77에서 C = 0.33 (즉, 수로의 반경이 수로 폭의 3 배임) 할 때 점차적으로 발생했으며, 추가 직선화는 수력 복잡성에 대한 급속한 손실을 초래했습니다.

다른 연구에서는 수리적 복잡성이 중요한 하천 서식지를 제공하고 생물 다양성과 양의 상관 관계가 있음을 보여주었습니다. 이 연구는 강을 풀 때 수력학적 복잡성이 점진적으로 사라졌다가 빠르게 사라지는 방법을 보여줍니다.

To assist river restoration efforts we need to slow the rate of river degradation. This study provides a detailed explanation of the hydraulic complexity loss when a meandering river is straightened in order to motivate the protection of river channel curvature. We used computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling to document the difference in flow dynamics in nine simulations with channel curvature (C) degrading from a well-established tight meander bend (C = 0.77) to a straight channel without curvature (C = 0). To control for covariates and slow the rate of loss to hydraulic complexity, each of the nine-channel realizations had equivalent bedform topography. The analyzed hydraulic variables included the flow surface elevation, streamwise and transverse unit discharge, flow velocity at streamwise, transverse, and vertical directions, bed shear stress, stream function, and the vertical hyporheic flux rates at the channel bed. The loss of hydraulic complexity occurred gradually when initially straightening the channel from C = 0.77 to C = 0.33 (i.e., the radius of the channel is three-times the channel width), and additional straightening incurred rapid losses to hydraulic complexity. Other studies have shown hydraulic complexity provides important riverine habitat and is positively correlated with biodiversity. This study demonstrates how hydraulic complexity can be gradually and then rapidly lost when unwinding a river, and hopefully will serve as a cautionary tale.

지난 몇 년 동안 과학자와 엔지니어는 기초 연구와 유압 구조 계획에 3D 수리적 흐름 시뮬레이션을 점점 더 많이 사용해 왔다. 그러나 수력발전소 취수장 앞의 쓰레기통은 수치 시뮬레이션에 있어 특별한 문제를 나타낸다. 그 이유는 다른 건축 요소들에 비해 trash rack bars들의 기하학적 구조가 특히 단편화되었기 때문이다. 폐기물 랙 손실을 FLOW-3D로 3D 수리적 시뮬레이션에 포함시키기 위한 대안적 접근법으로 배플을 사용할 수 있다. 월디 외 연구진(Exsterreichische Wasser- und Abfallwichtschaft 67:1–2, 2015)은 그러한 배플이 쓰레기 수거함의 손실을 모형화하는 유망한 방법임을 입증했다. 서로 다른 개념의 이러한 비교는 계산면을 따라 그리드 방향을 갖는 수직 쓰레기장으로 제한되었다. 실제 논문은 각이 진 쓰레기 보관대의 배플을 이용하여 쓰레기 보관대 손실을 모델링하는 것에 초점을 맞추고 있으며, 따라서 월디 외 연구소의 조사를 업그레이드한다

Over the last years, scientists and engineers have used more and more 3D-numerical flow simulations for basic research and the planning of hydraulic constructions. However, trash racks in front of the intakes of hydroelectric power plants represent a particular problem for numerical simulations. The reason for this is the especially fragmented geometry of the trash rack bars in comparison to other construction elements. As an alternative approach to include trash rack losses into a 3D-numerical simulation with FLOW-3D a baffle can be used. Waldy et al. (Österreichische Wasser- und Abfallwirtschaft 67:1–2, 2015) demonstrated that such a baffle is a promising method to model the losses at trash racks. These comparisons of different concepts were limited to a vertical trash rack, which had its grid orientation along the computational plane. The actual paper focuses on the modelling of the trash rack losses by means of a baffle at an angled trash rack and thus upgrades the survey of Waldy et al. (Österreichische Wasser- und Abfallwirtschaft 67:1–2, 2015).

Abstract

쓰나미 진화, 전파 및 침수의 수치 모델링은 현상에 관련된 수많은 매개 변수로 인해 복잡합니다. 쓰나미 모션을 해결하는 숫자 코드의 성능과 흐름 및 속도 패턴을 평가하는 것이 중요합니다. NAMI DANCE는 긴 파도 모델링을 위해 개발된 계산 도구입니다.

쓰나미 생성, 전파 및 침수 메커니즘의 수치 모델링 및 효율적인 시각화를 제공하고 쓰나미 매개 변수를 계산합니다. 긴 파도 이론에서, 물 입자의 수직 움직임은 압력 분포에 영향을 미치지 않습니다.

이러한 근사치와 소홀히 하는 수직 가속을 기반으로 질량 보존 및 모멘텀 방정식은 2차원 깊이 평균 방정식으로 줄어듭니다. NAMI DANCE는 유한차 계산 방법을 사용하여 긴 파도 문제에서 선형 및 비선형 형태의 깊이 평균 얕은 수식을 해결합니다.

이 연구에서 NAMI DANCE는 미국 포틀랜드에서 열린 2015 년 국립 쓰나미 위험 완화 프로그램 (NTHMP) 연례 회의에서 논의된 벤치 마크 문제에 적용됩니다.

벤치마크 문제는 하나의 독방 파도가 해양 섬 특징이 있는 삼각형 모양의 선반을 전파하는 일련의 실험을 특징으로 합니다. 이 문제는 섬 부근에서 상세한 무료 표면 고도 및 속도 의 타임 시리즈를 제공합니다. 결과를 비교한 결과, NAMI DANCE는 긴 파도 진화, 전파, 증폭 및 쓰나미 전류를 만족스럽게 예측할 수 있음을 보여주었습니다.

쓰나미는 해저 지진, 수중 산사태, 화산 폭발 또는 큰 운석 파업으로 인한 해저의 갑작스런 움직임에 의해 생성되는 큰 파도입니다. 쓰나미 파도는이 현상의 가장 파괴적인 매개 변수로 받아 들여진다; 그러나 큰 파도 움직임에 의해 트리거되는 전류는 경우에 따라 매우 치명적일 수 있습니다.

분지 공명 및 기하학적 증폭은 폐쇄 된 분지에서 쓰나미 영향의 지역 배율에 대한 두 가지 합리적으로 잘 이해된 메커니즘이며, 일반적으로 항구 또는 항구에서 쓰나미 위험 잠재력을 추정 할 때 조사 되는 메커니즘입니다. 반면에 전류에 대한 이해력과 예측 능력은부족하다[1]. 

이 연구는 수치 도구를 사용하여 쓰나미 진화, 전파 및 증폭뿐만 아니라 쓰나미 전류의 추정에 2 차원 깊이 평균 얕은 물 방정식의 충분성을 조사하는 것을 목표로; 즉 나미 댄스. 1970 년대 이후, 독방 파도는 일반적으로 실험 및 수학 연구에서, 쓰나미를 모델링하는 데 사용되었습니다[2]. 

이러한 점에서 수치 코드는 복잡한 목욕을 통해 단일 독방 파도의 진화와 전파에 초점을 맞춘 벤치마크 문제에 적용됩니다. 이 문제는 선반의 근해에 위치한 섬 특징이 있는 삼각형 모양의 선반을 전파할 때 단일 고독한 파도의 변형을 분석하는 일련의 실험을 설명합니다. 섬 부근에 형성되는 해류도 실험에서 조사된다.

이 연구에 사용된 벤치마크 문제는 미국 포틀랜드에서 개최된 2015 년 국립 쓰나미 위험 완화 프로그램 (NTHMP) 워크샵의 벤치마크 문제 #5.3]. 벤치마크 데이터와 수치 결과를 비교하여 2차원 깊이 평균 얕은 수식은 쓰나미 파도 진화와 해류에 대해 만족스러운 결과를 제공하므로 쓰나미 완화 전략을 결정하는 동안 사용하기에 충분한 도구임을 관찰합니다.

Abstract

극저온 추진제의 장기 공간 저장을 위해 축류 제트 믹서는 탱크 압력을 제어하고 열 층화를 줄이기위한 하나의 개념입니다. 1960 년대부터 현재까지 10 피트 이하의 탱크 직경에 대한 광범위한 지상 테스트 데이터가 존재합니다.

Ares V EDS (Earth Departure Stage) LH2 탱크 용으로 계획된 것과 같이 직경이 30 피트 정도 인 탱크 용 축류 제트 믹서를 설계하려면 훨씬 더 작은 탱크에서 사용 가능한 실험 데이터를 확장하고 미세 중력을 설계해야 합니다.

이 연구는 10 배 차이가 나는 2 개의 탱크 크기에서 기존의 지상 기반 축류 제트 혼합 실험의 시뮬레이션을 수행하여 이러한 규모의 변화를 처리하는 전산 유체 역학 (CFD)의 능력을 평가합니다. 저궤도 (LEO) 해안 동안 Ares V 스케일 EDS LH2 탱크에 대한 여러 축 제트 구성의 시뮬레이션이 평가되고 선택된 결과도 제공됩니다.

두 가지 탱크 크기 (직경 1 및 10 피트)의 물을 사용하여 General Dynamics에서 1960 년대에 수행한 제트 혼합 실험 데이터를 사용하여 CFD 정확도를 평가합니다. 제트 노즐 직경은 직경 1 피트 탱크 실험의 경우 0.032 ~ 0.25 인치, 직경 10 피트 탱크 실험의 경우 0.625 ~ 0.875 인치였습니다.

제트 믹서를 켜기 전에 두 탱크에서 열 층화 층이 생성되었습니다. 제트 믹서 효율은 층화 층이 섞일 때까지 탱크의 열전대 레이크의 온도를 모니터링하여 결정되었습니다. 염료는 층화된 탱크에 자주 주입되었고 침투가 기록되었습니다. 실험 데이터에서 사용 가능한 속도나 난류량은 없었습니다.

제시된 시뮬레이션에는 자유 표면 추적 (Flow Science, Inc.의 FLOW-3D)이 포함된 시판되고 시간 정확도가 높은 다차원 CFD 코드가 사용됩니다. 서로 다른 시간에 탱크의 다양한 축 위치에서 계산 된 온도와 실험적으로 관찰된 온도를 비교합니다. 획득한 합의에 대한 다양한 모델링 매개 변수의 영향을 평가합니다.

Introduction

Constellation 프로그램의 일부인 Ares V는 우주 비행사를 달로 돌려 보내도록 설계된 무거운 리프트 발사기입니다. Ares V 스택의 일부인 EDS (Earth Departure Stage)는 지구의 중력에서 벗어나 승무원 차량과 달 착륙선을 달로 보내는데 필요합니다.

이러한 차량의 질량과 달로 보내는 데 필요한 에너지 때문에 EDS의 액체 수소(LH2)와 액체 산소(LO2) 추진제 탱크는 매우 클 것입니다(직경 10m). 탱크 내부로의 환경적 열 누출로 인해 혼합 장치를 포함한 열역학적 환기 시스템(TV)은 설계 한계 내에서 탱크 압력을 유지하고 엔진 시동에 필요한 한도 내에서 액체 온도를 유지하기 위해 며칠의 순서에 따라 공간 내 저장 기간 동안 필요할 수 있습니다.

이러한 혼합 장치 중 하나는 그림 1과 2와 같이 탱크 바닥 근처에 있는 (순가속과 관련하여) 탱크 축을 따라 중심에 있는 축 제트입니다. 축방향 제트 혼합기와 TVS에 통합된 것은 1960년대 중반부터 연구되어 왔으며(참조 1~5), 광범위한 축방향 제트 접지 테스트 데이터(비사이로젠(참조 1~9), 극저온(참조 10~16) 유체 사용), 에탄올을 사용한 일부 드롭 타워 테스트 데이터(참조 17 및 18)가 있습니다. 극저온 추진제를 사용하는 축방향 제트에 대한 기존 접지 테스트 데이터는 3m(10ft) 이하의 탱크 직경으로 제한됩니다.

저자가 알고 있는 바와 같이, 현재 임계 미달의 극저온 추진체를 사용하는 폐쇄형 탱크에 축방향 제트가 포함된 낙하탑, 항공기 또는 우주 비행 시험 데이터는 없습니다.

축방향 제트(Axial jet)는 지구 저궤도(LEO) 연안의 며칠 동안 EDS LH2 탱크에서 작동하는 혼합 장치의 후보 중 하나입니다. 제안된 EDS 탱크 척도의 극저온 저장 탱크에서 작동하는 축 제트 실험 데이터가 존재하지 않기 때문에, EDS 탱크를 위한 축 제트 TV의 초기 설계는 기존 데이터에 대해 고정된 상관 관계 및 CFD 분석에 의존할 필요가 있습니다.

이 연구는 두 개의 탱크 척도에서 크기 순서로 다른 축방향 제트 열분해 성능을 예측하기 위한 CFD 정확도 평가의 현재 진행 상황을 보고합니다. CFD 시뮬레이션은 물을 작동 유체로 사용하는 접지 테스트 축 제트 데이터(참조 1 – 4)와 비교됩니다. 이 평가를 위해 선택된 CFD 코드는 Flow Science(참조 21)의 상용 코드 FLOW-3D로, 극저온 저장 탱크 및 축방향 제트(참조 22~24)의 이전 분석에서 사용되었습니다.

LEO의 대표적인 EDS LH2 탱크에 대한 예비 축 제트 시뮬레이션도 여러 축 제트 구성에 대해 수행됩니다. 이러한 축방향 제트 구성의 열분해 성능을 평가하고 선택된 결과를 제시합니다.

이러한 예비 축방향 제트 EDS 시뮬레이션은 비교적 짧은 시간 동안 혼합기 성능만 평가합니다. 탱크 열 누출, 위상 변화 및 일반적인 자기 압력(제트 오프)/압력 붕괴(제트 온) 사이클을 포함한 보다 상세한 시뮬레이션이 향후 작업에서 추진될 수 있습니다.

Summary and Conclusions

사용 가능한 유사성 상관 관계를 사용하는 스케일링 전략은 EDS 클래스 제트 믹서에 대한 적절한 제트 크기 및 작동 조건을 결정하기 위해 개발되었습니다. 물 탱크 시뮬레이션에서 결정된 모델링 매개 변수를 사용하여 열 층화를 제어하기 위해 제트 믹서를 사용하여 EDS 등급 추진제 탱크의 혼합 이력에 대한 CFD 시뮬레이션을 수행했습니다.

시뮬레이션 결과는 다양한 믹싱 동작을 보여 주며 유사성 매개 변수의 사용에서 예상되는 것과 일치했습니다. 이러한 결과는 하위 규모 테스트 및 유사성 상관 관계와 함께 CFD 시뮬레이션이 EDS 등급 탱크를위한 효율적인 제트 믹서 설계를 허용 할 것이라는 확신을 제공합니다.

CFD 시뮬레이션은 다양한 크기의 직경과 제트를 가진 탱크의 제트 믹서에서 수행되었습니다. 1 피트 직경의 물 탱크에서 제트 혼합에 대해 사용 가능한 실험 데이터와 합리적으로 일치하는 모델링 매개 변수가 결정되었습니다. 동일한 모델링 매개 변수를 사용하여 대략 10 배 정도 떨어져있는 스케일로 워터 제트 혼합 실험에서 혼합을 시뮬레이션했습니다. 시뮬레이션 결과는 실험 온도 데이터와 잘 일치하는 것으로 나타났습니다.

뾰족한 탄소 섬유(CF)를 사용하는 새로운 마이크로 스케일 이미터는 질량 분석 (MS) 분석에서 전기 분무에 사용할 수 있습니다. 탄소 섬유는 360 µm OD 및 75 µm ID의 용융 실리카 모세관과 동축에 위치하며 날카로운 팁은 튜브 말단에서 30 µm 연장됩니다.

Abstract

전기 분무 이온화 (ESI) 프로세스는 전기 유체 역학을 해결하기 위한 Taylor–Melcher 누설 유전체 유체 모델 및 액체-가스 인터페이스 추적을 위한 유체 부피 (VOF) 접근 방식을 기반으로 하는 전산 유체 역학 (CFD) 코드를 사용하여 시뮬레이션 됩니다. CFD 코드는 먼저 기존 지오메트리에 대해 검증한 다음 CF 이미터 기반 ESI 모델을 시뮬레이션하는데 사용됩니다.

시뮬레이션된 전류 흐름 및 전류 전압 결과는 CF 이미터의 실험 결과와 잘 일치합니다. 이미터 형상, 전위차, 유속 및 액체의 물리적 특성이 CF 이미터의 전기 분무 거동에 미치는 영향을 철저히 조사합니다.

스프레이 전류와 제트 직경은 액체의 유속, 전위차 및 물리적 특성과 상관 관계가 있으며 상관 결과는 문헌에 보고된 결과와 정량적으로 비교됩니다. (이 기사의 일부 그림은 전자 버전에서만 색상입니다)

Introduction

1980 년대 후반부터 매트릭스 보조 레이저 탈착 이온화 (MALDI)와 전기 분무 이온화 (ESI)의 두 가지 이온화 기술을 구현하여 감도, 속도 및 구조 정보 수준 측면에서 MS 분석이 엄청나게 성장했습니다. 1980 년대 초까지 전자 충격 (EI) 또는 화학 이온화 (CI) 방법은 가스 크로마토 그래피에 적합한 작은 생체 분자를 이온화 하는 데 사용되었습니다.

그러나 크고 열에 민감한 비 휘발성 샘플은 적절한 사전 처리 없이 EI 또는 CI-MS 기술로 분석 할 수 없습니다 [1]. ESI 기술을 사용하면 액체상에서 직접 이러한 큰 분자를 분석 할 수 있습니다 [2]. Zeleny [3, 4]는 출구에 높은 전위를 적용하여 모세관에서 액체 용액을 분사 할 수 있음을 보여주었습니다.

Dole [5, 6] 및 Fenn [7]의 선구적인 연구는 ESI를 고분자 및 생체 분자와 같은 대형 화합물의 이온화 방법으로 표시했습니다. 이에 이어이 기술에 의한 기상 이온 발생에 관련된 과정과 메커니즘이 널리 조사되고 있습니다.

ESI 방법에서 기체 이온화 된 분자는 강한 전계가 있는 상태에서 미세한 물방울을 생성하여 액체 용액에서 생성됩니다. ESI 프로세스의 이러한 능력은 단백질 및 기타 생체 분자 연구에 자연적으로 적용됨을 발견했습니다. ESI 방법과 관련된 다양한 프로세스가 그림 1에 나와 있습니다.

Figure 1. Schematic of an ESI process.
Figure 1. Schematic of an ESI process.

ESI 전위는 일반적으로 전도성 물질로 코팅 된 이미 터 튜브를 통해 외부에서 샘플 액체에 적용되지만 액체 샘플 내부에 적용될 수도 있습니다. Herring과 Qin [8]은 이미 터 팁에 삽입된 팔라듐 와이어를 통해 전기 분무 전위가 적용되는 모세관 전기 영동 (CE)을위한 ESI 인터페이스를 보여주었습니다.

Chiou의 설계 [9]에서는 작은 PDMS 칩에 있는 샘플 저장소, 마이크로 채널 및 실리카 모세관 노즐과 통합 된 내장 전극을 통해 전기 분무를 위한 고전압이 적용되었습니다.

Cao and Moini [10]는 ESI 전압이 모세관 내부에 위치한 전극을 통해인가되고 전기적 접촉이 출구 근처 모세관 벽의 작은 구멍을 통해 유지되는 전기 분무 방출기를 설계했습니다. 작은 모세관 직경 (~ 10 µm)을 가진 이미 터를 사용하여 낮은 전압에서 전기 분무가 가능하지만, 더 작은 구멍은 과도한 배압으로 인해 쉽게 막힐 수 있습니다.

직경이 더 큰 (> 50µm) 이미 터를 처리하는 것이 더 쉽습니다. 그러나 그들은 더 작은 직경의 이미 터만큼 효율적이지 않습니다 [11]. 일반적으로 ESI 전압을 적용하기 위해 유리 또는 용융 실리카와 같은 절연 재료로 제작 된 저 유량 이미 터의 외주에 전도성 코팅이 적용됩니다.

용융 실리카 모세관의 끝 부분에있는 스퍼터 코팅 된 귀금속 층은 내구성에 빠르게 영향을 미치는 것으로 관찰되었습니다. 코팅의 빠른 열화는 방전, 전기 화학적 반응 및 층과 용융 실리카 표면 사이의 불량한 기계적 결합으로 인해 발생할 수 있습니다.

이러한 에미 터의 수명은 스퍼터 코팅 후에 금을 전기 도금하거나 [12] 스퍼터 코팅 된 금 위에 SiOx를 코팅하여 증가시킬 수 있습니다 [13]. 크롬 또는 니켈 합금의 접착층 위에 금으로 코팅 된 이미 터는 우수한 결합력을 제공 할 수 있으며 음극으로 작동 할 때 내구성이 있습니다.

그러나 양극으로 작동하는 동안 접착층은 금 막을 통해 화학적으로 용해됩니다. 이미 터의 안정성과 내구성을 향상시키기 위해 대체 전도성 코팅이 평가되었습니다.

안정적인 ESI 작동을 위해 콜로이드 흑연 코팅 이미 터가 사용되었으며 수명이 길었습니다 [14]. 폴리아닐린 (PANI) 코팅 이미 터는 두꺼운 코팅으로 인해 높은 내구성을 보여주고 방전에 강합니다. PANIcoated와 gold-coated nanospray emitter의 electrospray ionization 거동을 비교 한 결과 PANIcoated emitter는 goldcoated emitter와 비슷한 향상된 감도를 제공합니다 [15].

그라파이트-폴리이 미드 혼합물은 또한 무 접착 전기 분무 방출기의 경우 전도성 코팅으로 사용되었습니다. 전도성 코팅의 안정성은 산화 스트레스 동안 좋은 성능을 나타내는 전기 화학적 방법에 의해 조사되었습니다 [16].

탄소 코팅 이미 터의 기능은 마이크로 스프레이 및 시스리스 CE 및 ESI 응용 분야에서 입증되었습니다. 이 이미 터는 견고하지는 않지만 방수가 되지 않는 CE 또는 ESI 애플리케이션에 충분히 내구성이있었습니다 [17].

우리는 막힘 문제를 제거하고 시료 액체와 금층 사이의 접촉 문제를 피할 수있는 뾰족한 탄소 섬유 기반의 새로운 ESI 방출기를 도입하여 ESI 시스템의 적용 성, 신뢰성 및 내구성을 향상 시켰습니다 [18]. 이 작업에서 탄소 섬유 기반 ESI 이미 터는 전산 유체 역학 (CFD) 소프트웨어 패키지 FLOW-3D [19]를 사용하여 시뮬레이션됩니다.

실험은 새로운 CF 이미 터를 사용하여 수행됩니다. 모델 예측은 실험 결과와 비교됩니다. 새로운 이미 터의 ESI 성능은 이미 터의 기하학적 구조, 유속, 액체의 물리적 특성과 같은 다양한 매개 변수에 대한 반응을 연구하여 평가됩니다.

스프레이 전류 및 제트 직경은 유량 및 액체의 특성과 상관 관계가 있으며 상관 결과는 문헌에보고 된 결과와 정량적으로 비교됩니다. 다음 섹션에서 ESI 공정을 지배하는 전기 유체 역학 이론은 Taylor–Melcher 누설 유전체 모델 [20]을 참조하여 설명됩니다.

그런 다음 Hartman 등이 사용하는 ESI 구성을 고려하여 CFD 코드의 유효성을 확인합니다 [21]. 또한 CF 기반 ESI 모델에 대한 시뮬레이션 및 실험 결과가 제시되고 논의됩니다. 마지막으로 모수 연구 결과와 상관 관계를 제시하고 논의합니다.

파우더 베드 융합 및 직접 에너지 증착 공정에서 레이저 또는 전자 빔을 열원으로 사용할 수 있습니다. 두 경우 모두 PBF용 분말 형태와 DED 공정용 분말 또는 와이어 형태의 금속을 완전히 녹여 융합하여 층별로 부품을 형성합니다. 그러나 바인더 젯팅(Binder jetting)에서는 결합제 역할을 하는 수지가 금속 분말에 선택적으로 증착되어 층별로 부품을 형성합니다. 이러한 부품은 더 나은 치밀화를 달성하기 위해 소결됩니다.

FLOW-3D AM 의 자유 표면 추적 알고리즘과 다중 물리 모델은 이러한 각 프로세스를 높은 정확도로 시뮬레이션 할 수 있습니다. 레이저 파우더 베드 융합 (L-PBF) 공정 모델링 단계는 여기에서 자세히 설명합니다. DED 및 바인더 분사 공정에 대한 몇 가지 개념 증명 시뮬레이션도 표시됩니다.

레이저 파우더 베드 퓨전 (L-PBF)

L-PBF 공정에는 유체 흐름, 열 전달, 표면 장력, 상 변화 및 응고와 같은 복잡한 다중 물리학 현상이 포함되어 공정 및 궁극적으로 빌드 품질에 상당한 영향을 미칩니다. FLOW-3D AM 의 물리적 모델은 질량, 운동량 및 에너지 보존 방정식을 동시에 해결하는 동시에 입자 크기 분포 및 패킹 비율을 고려하여 중규모에서 용융 풀 현상을 시뮬레이션합니다.

FLOW-3D DEM FLOW-3D WELD 는 전체 파우더 베드 융합 공정을 시뮬레이션하는 데 사용됩니다. L-PBF 공정의 다양한 단계는 분말 베드 놓기, 분말 용융 및 응고,이어서 이전에 응고 된 층에 신선한 분말을 놓는 것, 그리고 다시 한번 새 층을 이전 층에 녹이고 융합시키는 것입니다. FLOW-3D AM  은 이러한 각 단계를 시뮬레이션하는 데 사용할 수 있습니다.

파우더 베드 부설 공정

FLOW-3D DEM을 사용하면 아래 동영상처럼 입자의 분포를 무작위로 떨어뜨려 파우더 베드 배치 프로세스를 시뮬레이션할 수 있습니다.

다양한 파우더 베드 압축을 달성하는 한 가지 방법은 베드를 놓는 동안 다양한 입자 크기 분포를 선택하는 것입니다. 아래에서 볼 수 있듯이 세 가지 크기의 입자 크기 분포가 있으며, 이는 가장 높은 압축을 제공하는 Case 2와 함께 다양한 분말 베드 압축을 초래합니다.

세 가지 다른 입자 크기 분포를 사용하여 파우더 베드 배치

세 가지 다른 입자 크기 분포를 사용한 분말 베드 압축

입자-입자 상호 작용, 유체-입자 결합 및 입자 이동 물체 상호 작용은 FLOW-3D DEM을 사용하여 자세히 분석 할 수도 있습니다 . 또한 입자간 힘을 지정하여 분말 살포 응용 분야를 보다 정확하게 연구 할 수도 있습니다.

FLOW-3D AM  시뮬레이션은 이산 요소 방법 (DEM)을 사용하여 역 회전하는 원통형 롤러로 인한 분말 확산을 연구합니다. 비디오 시작 부분에서 빌드 플랫폼이 위로 이동하는 동안 분말 저장소가 아래로 이동합니다. 그 직후, 롤러는 분말 입자 (초기 위치에 따라 색상이 지정됨)를 다음 층이 녹고 구축 될 준비를 위해 구축 플랫폼으로 펼칩니다. 이러한 시뮬레이션은 저장소에서 빌드 플랫폼으로 전송되는 분말 입자의 선호 크기에 대한 추가 통찰력을 제공 할 수 있습니다.

파우더 베드 용해

파우더 베드를 놓은 후 FLOW-3D  WELD 에서 레이저 빔 공정 매개 변수를 지정 하여 고 충실도 용융 풀 시뮬레이션을 수행 할 수 있습니다  . 온도, 속도, 고체 분율, 온도 구배 및 고체 속도의 플롯을 자세히 분석 할 수 있습니다.

레이저 출력 200W, 스캔 속도 3.0m / s, 스폿 반경 100μm에서 파우더 베드의 용융 풀 분석.

용융 풀이 응고되면 FLOW-3D AM  압력 및 온도 데이터를 Abaqus 또는 MSC Nastran과 같은 FEA 도구로 가져와 응력 윤곽 및 변위 프로파일을 분석 할 수도 있습니다.

다층 적층 제조

첫 번째 용융 층이 응고되면 입자의 두 번째 층이 응고 층에 증착됩니다. 새로운 분말 입자 층에 레이저 공정 매개 변수를 지정하여 용융 풀 시뮬레이션을 다시 수행합니다. 이 프로세스를 여러 번 반복하여 연속적으로 응고 된 층 간의 융합, 빌드 내 온도 구배를 평가하는 동시에 다공성 또는 기타 결함의 형성을 모니터링 할 수 있습니다.

다층 적층 적층 제조 시뮬레이션

바인더 분사 (Binder jetting)

Binder jetting 시뮬레이션은 모세관 힘의 영향을받는 파우더 베드에서 바인더의 확산 및 침투에 대한 통찰력을 제공합니다. 공정 매개 변수와 재료 특성은 증착 및 확산 공정에 직접적인 영향을 미칩니다.

방향성 에너지 증착

FLOW-3D AM 의 내장 입자 모델 을 사용하여 직접 에너지 증착 프로세스를 시뮬레이션 할 수 있습니다. 분말 주입 속도와 고체 기질에 입사되는 열유속을 지정함으로써 고체 입자는 용융 풀에 질량, 운동량 및 에너지를 추가 할 수 있습니다. 다음 비디오에서 고체 금속 입자가 용융 풀에 주입되고 기판에서 용융 풀의 후속 응고가 관찰됩니다.

FLOW DEM

FLOW DEM 은 FLOW-3D 의 기체 및 액체 유동 해석에 DEM(Discrete Element Method : 개별 요소법)공법인 입자의 거동을 분석해주는 모듈입니다.

주요 기능 :고체 요소의 충돌, 스프링(Spring) / 대시 포트(Dash Pot) 모델 적용 Void, 1 fluid, 2 fluid(자유 계면 포함) 각각의 모드에 대응 가변 밀도 / 가변 직경 입자 크기조절로 입자 특성을 유지하면서 입자 수를 감소 독립적인 DEM의 Sub Time Step 이용

Discrete Element Method : 개별 요소법

다수의 고체 요소의 충돌 운동을 분석하는 데 유용합니다. 유동 해석과 함께 사용하면 광범위한 용도에 응용을 할 수 있습니다.

입자 간의 충돌

Voigt model은 스프링(Spring) 및 대시 포트(Dash pot)의 조합에 의해 입자 충돌 시의 힘을 평가합니다. 탄성력 부분은 스프링 모델에서,
비탄성 충돌의 에너지 소산부분은 대시 포트 모델에서 시뮬레이션되고 있으며, 중량 및 항력은 작용하는 외력으로 고려 될 수 있습니다.

분석 모드

기본적으로 이용하는 운동 방정식은 FLOW-3D 에 사용되는 질량 입자의 운동 방정식과 같은 것이지만, 여기에 DEM으로
평가되는 항목이 추가되기 형태로되어 있으며, 실제 시뮬레이션으로는 ‘void + DEM’, ‘1 Fluid + DEM’ , ‘ 1 Fluid 자유계면 + DEM ‘을 기본 유동 모드로 취급이 가능합니다.

입자 유형

입자 타입도 표준 기능의 질량 입자 모델처럼 입자 크기 (반경)와 밀도가 동일한 것 외, 크기는 같지만 밀도가 다른 것이나 밀도는 같지만 크기가 다른 것 등도 취급 가능합니다. 이로 인해 표준 질량 입자 모델에서는 입자 간의 상호 작용이 고려되어 있지 않기 때문에 모든 아래에 가라 앉아 버리고 있었지만, FLOW DEM을 이용하여 기하학적 관계를 평가하는 것이 가능합니다.

입자 그룹 가시화

그룹 가시화

DEM은 일반적으로 다수의 입자를 필요로하는 분석을 상정하고 있습니다. 
다만 이 경우, 계산 부하가 높아 지므로 현실적인 계산자원을 고려하면, 입자 수가 너무 많아 현실적으로 취급 할 수 없는 경우 입자의 특성은 유지하고 숫자를 줄여 가시화할 필요가 있습니다 .
일반적인 유동해석 계산의 메쉬 해상도에 해당합니다.
메쉬 수 많음 (계산 부하 큼) → 소 (계산 부하 적음)
입자 수 다 (계산 부하 큼) → 소 (계산 부하 적음)

원래 입자수
입자 사이즈를 키운경우
그룹 가시화
  • 입자 수를 줄이기 위해 그대로 입경을 크게했을 경우와 그룹 가시화 한 경우의 비교.
  • 입자 크기를 크게하면 개별 입자 특성이 달라지기 때문에 거동이 달라진다. (본 사례에서는 부력이 커진다.)
  • 그룹 가시화의 경우 개별 특성은 동일 원래의 거동과 대체로 일치한다.

주조 시뮬레이션에 DEM 적용

그룹 가시화 비교 예

그룹 가시화한 경우와 입경을 크게하여 수를 줄인 경우, 입경을 크게하면
개별 입자 특성이 변화하여 거동이 바뀌어 버리기 때문에 실제 계산으로는 사용할 수 어렵습니다.

중자 모래 분사 분석

DEM에서의 계산부하를 생각할 때는 입자모델에 의한 안정제한을 고려해야 하지만 서브타임스텝이라는 개념을 도입함으로써 입자의 경우와 유체의 경우의 타임스텝을 바꾸고 필요이상으로 계산시간을 들이지 않고 효율적으로 계산하는 것을 가능하게 하고 있습니다.

이를 통해 예를 들어 중자사 분사 시뮬레이션 실험에서는 이러한 문제로 자주 이용되는 빙엄 유체에서는 실험과의 정합성이 별로 좋지 않기 때문에 당사에서는 이전부터 입상류 모델이라는 모델을 개발하고 연속체로부터의 접근에서도 실험과의 높은 정합성을 실현할 수 있는 모델화를 해왔는데, 이번에 DEM을 사용해도 그것과 거의 같은 결과를 얻습니다. 할 수 있음을 확인할 수 있었다.

컴팩트 디스크 미세 유체 장치: Optimizing Real Estate

Compact Disc Microfluidic Devices: Optimizing Real Estate

미세 유체 장치 사용자의 증가하는 기대를 충족하려면 작은 미세 유체 장치에서 제한된 공간을 최적화하는 것이 중요합니다. 사용자는 단일 미세 유체 장치에서 최대의 기능과 여러 병렬 작업을 기대합니다. 제한된 공간을 최적화하는 문제는 이러한 장치의 많은 물리적 이점에도 불구하고 회전하는 미세 유체 장치로 확장됩니다. 회전 에너지를 이용하여 미세 유체 작업을 수행하는 회전 장치를 컴팩트 디스크 (CD) 미세 유체 장치라고합니다.

컴팩트 디스크 ELISA 칩 [1]
컴팩트 디스크 ELISA 칩 [2]
컴팩트 디스크 ELISA 칩 [2]

10 년 넘게 CD는 혈액 진단을위한 신속한 면역 분석 및 임상 생화학에서 지속적으로 장점을 보여 왔습니다. 마이크로 토탈 분석 시스템 (μTAS)으로 사용되며, 여러 개별 분석이 내장되어 단일 칩에서 동시에 실행됩니다. 핸즈프리 제어를 위해 프로그래밍 된 간단하고 저렴한 모터에서 작동하며 자석이나 표면 처리와 같은 외부 액추에이터가 필요하지 않습니다. 기본적으로 CD는 훌륭합니다! 그러나 공짜 점심 같은 것은 없습니다. 단방향 (방사형) 원심력으로 인해 CD는 회전하지 않는 미세 유체 장치보다 빠르게 공간이 부족합니다. 유체는 방사형으로 바깥쪽으로 만 이동하므로 CD가 수행 할 수있는 분석 단계의 수가 제한됩니다.

CD의 단 방향성 극복

Gorkin    [3]에서는 CD의 단 방향성 제약을 극복하기 위해 공압 펌핑이 제안되었습니다. 아이디어는 원심 에너지를 압축 에너지로 저장하고 다시 풀어서 유체를 중심으로 발사하는 것입니다. 아래 이미지는 로딩 챔버, 흡입 하위 구획 및 압축 하위 구획의 세 개의 챔버가있는 비교적 간단한 미세 유체 칩을 보여줍니다.

그림 4. CD 사진
그림 4. CD 사진
그림 5. FLOW-3D에서 모방 된 CD 디자인
그림 5. FLOW-3D에서 모방 된 CD 디자인

공압 펌핑 프로세스

유체가 로딩 챔버로 들어간 다음, 흡입 하위 구획을 통해 공기가 갇힌 압축 하위 구획으로 이동합니다. 공기가 갇 히면 CD가 특정 각속도로 회전하여 갇힌 공기가 압축됩니다. 공기가 더 이상 압축 할 수없는 경우 (안정 상태에 도달했기 때문에), 회전 속도가 감소하거나 완전히 꺼져 (누군가이 작업을 수행하고 있습니까? 아니면 장치가 수행하고 있습니까?) 유체가 로딩 챔버로 다시 펌핑됩니다. 이 마지막 단계는 이완 단계입니다. 공압 펌핑 공정의 5 단계는 다음과 같습니다.

그림 6. CD의 5 단계 공압 펌핑 [3]
그림 6. CD의 5 단계 공압 펌핑 [3]

회전 속도의 영향

회전 속도가 다르면 압축 하위 구획에서 공기의 압축 수준이 다릅니다. 회전 속도가 높을수록 유체가 공기에 더 세게 밀려 공기가 더 많이 압축됩니다. 그러나 공기가 압축 될 수있는 양에는 한계가 있습니다. 사실, 공기의 압축은 특정 회전 속도 이상으로 점진적으로 증가합니다. 압축 하위 구획의 부피는 회전 속도가 증가함에 따라 감소합니다. 흡입구의 액체 위치는 디스크 중앙에서 흡입 하위 구획의 유체 수준까지의 거리입니다. 이 거리는 증가합니다. 즉, 회전 속도가 증가함에 따라 유체가 중심에서 멀어집니다.

그림 7. 회전 주파수가 증가하면 압축이 증가합니다. [3]
그림 7. 회전 주파수가 증가하면 압축이 증가합니다. [3]

CD 미세 유체 장치 모델링

실험은 미세 유체 장치 설계의 핵심입니다. 그러나 충분한 실험을 수행하고 각 실험에 대한 완벽한 제어 환경을 유지하는 것은 불가능할 수 있습니다. 복잡한 설계에는 복잡한 실험 설정 및 분석이 필요합니다. FLOW-3D 의 정확하고 포괄적 인 다중 물리  모델링 기능 은 미세 유체 설계에 대한 통찰력과이를 최적화하는 방법을 제공합니다. FLOW-3D가  위에서 논의한 CD 미세 유체 장치에 대한 실험적 및 이론적 결과와 어떻게 비교되는지 보여 드리겠습니다  .

CD 미세 유체 장치에 대한 실험적 및 이론적 결과와 비교

이미지 시퀀스는 실험 및 FLOW-3D  시뮬레이션 결과 의 시각적 비교를 제공합니다  . 두 유체 (공기 및 물) 압축 가능 모델을 사용하여 서로 다른 회전 속도에 대해 챔버 내부의 유체 역학을 시뮬레이션했습니다. 회귀 분석을 사용하여 아래 플롯에서 이러한 시각적 비교를 정량화하면 FLOW-3D  와 실험 결과,  FLOW-3D  및 분석 결과 간에 탁월한 상관 관계 (R 2 > 0.99)가 제공  됩니다.

시뮬레이션은 또한 다양한 회전 속도에 대한 정상 상태에 대한 접근 방식을 보여줍니다. 아래의 애니메이션은 CD의 운동 에너지 변동을 1000rpm nd 7000rpm에서 보여줍니다. 더 빠른 속도는 더 빠른 정상 상태를 강제하지만 정상 상태에 도달할 때까지 수위를 빠르게 변동시킵니다. 저속 시뮬레이션의 경우 그 반대입니다.

전반적으로  FLOW-3D  는 실험 결과를 정확하게 검증합니다. 사소한 오류는 부정확 한 지오메트리 (CAD) 생성 및 / 또는 물과 공기 사이의 인터페이스를 엄격하게 정의하기 때문일 수 있습니다. 이 사례 연구는 FLOW-3D  가 실험 결과를 검증하고 컴팩트 디스크 설계의 신뢰도를 높이는 데 효과적으로 사용될 수 있음을 보여줍니다  .

FLOW-3D DEM

FLOW DEM

 

FLOW DEM 은 FLOW-3D 의 기체 및 액체 유동 해석에 DEM(Discrete Element Method : 개별 요소법) 기법인 입자의 거동을 분석해주는 제품입니다.

입자 – 입자 간, 입자 – 벽 사이의 접촉이나 상호 작용을 모델링 할 수 있으므로 보다 현실적인 입자 거동의 해석이 가능합니다. 
또한 유체 부분은 전문적인 FLOW-3D 분석 기능을 사용하기 때문에 유체 와 입자거동의 연성해석을 정밀하게 또한 효율적으로 분석할 수 있습니다.

주요 기능 :
  • 고체 요소의 충돌, 스프링(Spring) / 대시 포트(Dash Pot) 모델 적용
  • Void, 1 fluid, 2 fluid(자유 계면 포함) 각각의 모드에 대응
  • 가변 밀도 / 가변 직경
  • 입자 크기조절로 입자 특성을 유지하면서 입자 수를 감소
  • 독립적인 DEM의 Sub Time Step 이용

Discrete Element Method : 개별 요소법

다수의 고체 요소의 충돌 운동을 분석하는 데 유용합니다. 유동 해석과 함께 사용하면 광범위한 용도에 응용을 할 수 있습니다.

dem2

입자 간의 충돌

Voigt model은 스프링(Spring) 및 대시 포트(Dash pot)의 조합에 의해 입자 충돌 시의 힘을 평가합니다. 탄성력 부분은 스프링 모델에서,
비탄성 충돌의 에너지 소산부분은 대시 포트 모델에서 시뮬레이션되고 있으며, 중량 및 항력은 작용하는 외력으로 고려 될 수 있습니다.

 
  • 스프링 : 변형에 관련된 힘
  • 대시 포트 : 충돌시의 상대 속도에 관련된 힘
    (점성 감쇠)
  • 스프링 및 대시 포트를 병렬로 연결
    ⇒ Voigt model
  • 힘은 법선 방향과 접선 방향으로 나누어진다

분석 모드

기본적으로 이용하는 운동 방정식은 FLOW-3D 에 사용되는 질량 입자의 운동 방정식과 같은 것이지만, 여기에 DEM으로 평가되는 항목이 추가되는 형태로 되어 있으며, 실제 시뮬레이션으로는 ‘void + DEM’, ‘1 Fluid + DEM’ , ‘ 1 Fluid 자유계면 + DEM ‘을 기본 유동 모드로 취급이 가능합니다.

입자 타입도 표준 기능의 질량 입자 모델처럼 입자 크기 (반경)와 밀도가 동일한 것 외, 크기는 같지만 밀도가 다른 것이나 밀도는 같지만 크기가 다른 것 등도 취급 가능합니다. 이로 인해 표준 질량 입자 모델에서는 입자 간의 상호 작용이 고려되어 있지 않기 때문에 모든 아래에 가라 앉아 버리고 있었지만, FLOW DEM을 이용하여 기하학적 관계를 평가하는 것이 가능합니다.

Coarse Graining

DEM은 일반적으로 다수의 입자를 필요로 하는 해석에 사용이 되고 있습니다. 다만 이 경우, 계산 부하가 높아지므로 현실적인 계산자원을 고려하면, 입자 수가 줄여 해석할 필요가 있습니다 .

Particle Size Increase 경우

 

중자 모래 분사 분석

DEM에서의 계산부하를 생각할 때는 입자모델에 의한 안정제한을 고려해야 하지만 서브타임스텝이라는 개념을 도입함으로써 입자의 경우와 유체의 경우의 타임스텝을 바꾸고 필요이상으로 계산시간을 들이지 않고 효율적으로 계산하는 것을 가능하게 하고 있습니다.

이를 통해 예를 들어 중자사 분사 시뮬레이션 실험에서는 이러한 문제로 자주 이용되는 빙엄 유체에서는 실험과의 정합성이 별로 좋지 않기 때문에 당사에서는 이전부터 입상류 모델이라는 모델을 개발하고 연속체로부터의 접근에서도 실험과의 높은 정합성을 실현할 수 있는 모델화를 해왔는데, 이번에 DEM을 사용해도 그것과 거의 같은 결과를 얻습니다. 할 수 있음을 확인할 수 있었다.

Aluminum Integral Foam Molding Process

Aluminum Integral Foam Molding Process

알루미늄 폼은 우수한 댐핑 및 높은 에너지 흡수율 및 굴곡 강성과 같은 예외적인 특성을 보여줍니다[1]. 강성은 특히 하중 지지 및 경량 구조에 사용하기에 특히 매력적입니다. 중량별 강성을 높이고 보다 우수한 하중 전달을 위해 알 Aluminum Foam Sandwiches (AFS)와 같은 컴팩트한 특성이 필요합니다 [2].

Erlangen-Nuremberg 대학의 금속 공학과 기술 위원장은 알루미늄 발포 특성을 점차적으로 생산하기 위해 다이캐스팅 공정인 Integral Foam Molding 개발하였습니다(그림 1 참조). 이 공정은 폴리머의 사출 성형으로 개발되었으며 따라서 컴팩트한 층을 가진 복잡한 폼을 비용 효율적으로 대량 생산에 적합합니다. 이 노트에 설명 된 시뮬레이션 기법은 프로세스 매개 변수를 선택하는데 도움을 주기 위한 모델링프로세스를 확인할 수 있습니다.

Figure 1. Cross section of an aluminum integral foam with a compact skin, a transition region with decreasing relative density and smaller pores, as well as a foamed core.

Aluminum Integral Foam Molding Technology

일정량의 발포제 (수소화 마그네슘, MgH2)가 러너 시스템에 배치되고 샷 챔버는 알루미늄 용융물로 채워진다 (공정은 그림 2에 묘사되어 있으며, 공정은 [3]에 자세히 설명되어있다). 피스톤이 진행됨에 따라, 분말은 난류 방식으로 주형에 이송된다. 기술 변형 “고압 일체형 폼 몰딩 (HP-IFM)”의 경우 표준 다이캐스팅 공정에서 알 수 있듯이 이 부품은 주변의 높은 압력에서 완전히 채워져 우수한 표면 품질을 보장합니다. 템퍼링된 금형 표면에서 시작하여 용융물은 일체형으로 고형화되기 시작합니다. 몇 밀리 초가 지나면 금형은 코어 풀러 시스템 위에 열리고 부피는 국부적으로 증가하고 압력은 감소하여 열분해 및 수소화 마그네슘 입자의 수소 방출로 인해 여전히 반고체 내부 영역에서 기공 성장을 시작합니다. 모든 발포제 입자는 이웃하는 공극의 역압에 의해 멈추어 질 때까지 공극의 성장을 지속합니다. 발포된 입자의 벽은 알루미늄 합금의 응고된 입자에 의해 안정화가 되며 이를 endogenous stabilization이라고 합니다[4].

Figure 2. Schematic process cycle of “High Pressure Integral Foam Molding (HP-IFM)” of aluminum.

주조 부품의 전체 부피에서 균일한 형태에 대한 전제조건은 분해 순간의 양호한 입자분포입니다. 또한, 발포제 유입시의 용융물의 온도는 수소화 마그네슘의 분해를 결정하며 (그림 3 참조), 게다가 발포시 solid phase의 양을 결정한다. 그러나 고상의 양이 너무 많으면 기공의 강성이 증가하고 현상 기공의 구형화를 방해하여 구조가 파괴된다 [2].

Microcellular Aluminum Integral Foams – Approaching the Process Limits

일체형 발포 성형 공정시뮬레이션은 새로운 부품 설계의 몰드 충진 특성을 조사하는 데 도움이 될 뿐만 아니라 입자 침투도 예측하고 비용을 절약할 수 있게 발포 공정 조건을 결정할 수 있는 강력한 도구입니다. 현재 연구의 목표는 다공성 수준을 일정하게 유지하면서 기공 크기를 줄이는 것입니다. 전산 유체 역학 (CFD) 시뮬레이션은 가능한 한 현재의 프로세스 한계에 가깝게 접근할 수 있습니다. 발포 형태의 개선은 기계적 물성에서 균질 한 구조를 유도 할뿐만 아니라 기계적 성질에 의해 더 얇은 부품의 생산이 가능할 것입니다. 이 목적은 용융물 내에서의 높은 입자 분포 밀도와 동시에 응집 현상의 감소와 함께 완전히 안정된 기공 성장에 의해서만 달성 될 수 있다.

Adapting the Simulation Parameters to Practical Integral Foam Molding Experiments

입자 거동이나 온도장에 대한 신뢰성 있는 예측을 위한 CFD 시뮬레이션을 사용할 수 있으려면 실제 실험과 일치하도록 매개 변수를 결정해야 합니다. 이를 위해, 30-130 ms의 지연 시간을 갖는 일체형 발포 부품을 제작하였으며 성형 팽창 및 기공 성장 개시 순간에 고상분율 때문에 발포 형성이 불가능한 다른 밀도의 형상을 만들었습니다. 열 전달 계수 (완전한 액체 용융물과 완전 응고된 용융물)를 변화시켜 합금 AlSi9Cu3 (Fe)의 주조 사이클을 시뮬레이션하면 응고 곡선을 적용할 수 있습니다. 이러한 목표를 달성하기 위해 시뮬레이션을 피스톤 이동이 시작되기 전에 실제 온도분포를 묘사해야 합니다. 온도는 배치된 열에 의해 숏 챔버에서 국부적으로 측정되었으며 시뮬레이션 내 실제 데이터와 잘 일치하여 성공적으로 묘사 될 수 있었습니다. 금형 충진 중에 금형 표면에서 온도 측정을 참조 할 수도 있습니다. 시간 경과에 따른 그 변화는 시뮬레이션 결과와 잘 일치합니다.

표면장력이나 응고 항력계수와 같은 용융의 유동을 정의하는 추가 매개 변수 단계에서는 다른 설정과 시뮬레이션을 비교하여 조정됩니다. 시뮬레이션 내에서 용융물의 흐름이 실제 시험과 일치하는 즉시 매개 변수가 설정됩니다

Figure 5. Adjustment of melt flow defining parameters such as the surface tension by comparisons of real experiments (left) to simulations (right)

냉각 및 용해 흐름 특성을 정의한 후 입자의 유입을 시뮬레이션 합니다. 입자 / 유체 의 상호 작용에 대한 시뮬레이션을 조정하기 위해 매개 변수계수의 X 선 샘플과 비교가 되며 구리선 입자에서는 수산화 마그네슘보다 높은 함량 입자가 적용됩니다. (그림 6 참조). 시뮬레이션 결과는 실험과 매우 잘 어울리므로 프로세스 매개 변수의 함수로서 입자 분포의 신뢰할 수 있습니다.

Conclusion

전체적으로 FLOW-3D는 실제 생산 전에 새로운 부품 제조의 잠재적 결함을 조사하는 중요한 수단이 될 수 있다는 것을 증명할 수 있었습니다. 이러한 방식으로, 차가운 흐름 또는 데드 존이 없는 성공적인 충전 및 발포제 분포가 보장 될 수 있다. 또한, 예상되는 온도 필드의 정확한 묘사로, 수소화 마그네슘의 분해 특성 및 기공형성을 예측할 수 있습니다. 이는 일체형 폼 구조와 관련하여 고객의 요구를 충족시키기 위한 공정 변수를 정의 할 수 있는 가능성을 제공합니다

1 Criterion is the solid phase fraction where the shear strength and therefore the resistance to pore evolution increases drastically.

[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.

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.

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.

    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.

6자유도 보다 운동의 자유도를 줄이기 위해 운동의 제약이 물체에 가해질 수 있다. 이 선택은 일부의 이동과 회전속도 성분을 Prescribed motion 으로 다른 성분들은 Motion Constraints tab Translational and Rotational Options 에서 coupled motion 결합운동으로 설정함으로써 이루어진다. 이동과 회전은 각기 공간계와 물체계로 되어있다는 것에 주목한다. 이 때에 Initial/Prescribed Velocities 탭으로 가서 이 값을 정의한다. 지정속도 성분은 상응하는 combo box 에서 사인파 또는 구간적 시간함수로써 정의될 수 있다. 일정속도 성분에 대해서 Non-Sinusoidal 을 선택하고 입력박스에서 값을 넣는다(디폴트 값은0이다). 속도성분이 시간의 함수이고 Non-Sinusoidal 이면 데이터 테이블을 열고 Tabular 버튼을 클릭하고 속도 성분과 시간 값을 넣는다. 다른 방법으로는 사용자가 Tabular Import Values 를 클릭함으로써 속도성분 대 시간의 데이터 파일을 읽어 들일 수가 있다. 이 파일은 좌로부터 우로의 시간과 각속도 성분을 나타내는 두 데이터 열이 있어야 하며 csv 확장자를 가져야 한다. 이렇게 입력된 값들은 코드 내에서 구간별 선형함수로 근사 된다. 대신에 시간의 함수이면 편집박스에서의 Amplitude, Frequency (in Hz) 그리고 Initial Phase (in degrees) 값을 입력한다.

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

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.

Control Forces and Torques 탭에서 combo box 상자 안의 Define Total Force and Total Torque 를 선택한다. 추가로 조절 토크가 정의되는 기준계에 따른 공간계 In Space System 나 물체계 In Body System 을 선택한다.  토크가 상수이면 its x, y 및 z 성분을 위한 주어진 편집상자에서 지정된다. 이것이   시간에 따라 변하는 조절 토크이면 데이터 테이블을 불러오기 위해 상응하는 Tabular 버튼을 클릭하고 성분과 토크 성분값을 넣는다. 제어토크는 구간 내 시간의 선형함수로 간주된다. 선택으로 한 줄씩 데이터 테이블을 채우는 대신에 사용자가 Tabular Import Values 을 클릭함으로써 각속도 대 시간 읽어 들일 수가 있다. 이 파일은 시간과 속도를 나타내는 좌로부터 우로의 두 데이터 열이 있어야 하며  csv 확장자를 가져야 한다

 

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.

 

파도 / Waves

파도 / Waves

FLOW-3D 는 비정형 파뿐만 아니라 일반 선형 및 비선형파 표면을 시뮬레이션 할 수 있는 기능이 있습니다. 선형파는 작은 진폭 및 급경사를 갖는 사인파 표면 프로파일을 가지며, 비선형파는 선형 파보다 더 큰 진폭 (유한 진폭), 더 뾰족한 볏 및 평탄한 골짜기를 갖는다. 비선형 파는 파동 문자와 그 해를 구하기 위해 사용 된 수학적 방법에 따라 스톡 (stookes), 코니이드 (cnoidal) 파 및 독방 파로 분류 될 수 있습니다.

그림 1. 다른 진행파의 프로파일 비교
도 1 및도 2에 도시 된 바와 같이, 스톡스 파는 심층 및 과도수의 주기적인 파이다. Cnoidal 파는 얕은 물과 중간 물에서 긴주기적인 파이고 Stokes 파보다 더 뾰족한 볏과 평평한 골짜기를 가지고 있습니다. 스톡스와 코니 형 파와 달리 독방 파는 얕은 물과 과도 수에서 존재하는 비 주기적 파이다. 그것은 하나의 산마루와 물마루를 가지며 완전히 방해받지 않은 수면 위입니다. 수학적으로 파장이 무한대가 될 때 그것은 코니 형 파의 제한적인 경우입니다. 심층수, 과도 수 및 파도에 대한 얕은 물의 분류는 표 1에서 찾아 볼 수있다.

그림 2. 다양한 파도의 적용 범위 (Le Méhauté, 1976, Sorensen, 2005 및 USACE, 2008). d : 평균 수심; H : 파고; T : 파주기; g : 중력 가속도

선형 파 이론 (Airy, 1845)이 많은 응용 분야에서 사용되었지만 비선형 파 이론은 파동의 진폭이 작지 않은 경우 선형 파 이론보다 정확도가 크게 향상되었습니다. FLOW-3D 에서 3 개의 비선형 파 이론이 5 차 스톡스 파 이론 (Fenton, 1985), 스톡스 및 코니이드 파에 대한 푸리에 급수 방법 (Fenton, 1999), McCowan의 독방 파 이론 (McCowan, 1891, Munk, 1949). 그 중에서 Fenton의 Fourier 시리즈 방법은 선형 물, 스톡 (Stokes) 및 코니형 (cnoidal) 파를 포함하여 심층수, 과도 수 및 얕은 물에서 모든 종류의 주기적 전파 파들에 유효합니다. 또한 다른 웨이브 이론보다 정확도가 높습니다 (USACE, 2008). 따라서 모든 수심에서 선형 및 비선형 주기파의 모든 유형을 생성하는 것이 권장되는 방법입니다. solitary wave의 경우, FLOW-3D 에 사용 된 McCowan의 이론은 Boussinesq (1871)에 의해 개발 된 다른 널리 사용되는 이론보다 더 높은 주문 정확도를 갖는다.

그림 3. PM과 JOHNSWAP 스펙트럼 (USCE, 2006에서 적응)

Classifications d /\lambda
Deep water 1/2 to ∞
Transitional water 1/20 to 1/2
Shallow water 0 to 1/20

불규칙한 물결은 파도의 물성이 일정하지 않은 자연적인 바다의 상태를 나타냅니다. FLOW-3D에서 불규칙한 파동은 다양한 진폭과 주파수 및 임의의 위상 변이를 갖는 많은 선형 성분 파의 중첩으로 표현됩니다. Pierson-Moskowitz (Pierson and Moskowitz, 1964)와 JONSWAP 파력 에너지 스펙트럼 (Hasselmann, et al., 1973)은 FLOW-3D에서 구성 요소 파를 생성하기 위해 구현된다. 다른 웨이브 에너지 스펙트럼은 사용자 정의 데이터 파일을 가져와서 사용할 수 있습니다.

계산 시간을 절약하기 위해 웨이브는 메시 블록 경계에서뿐만 아니라 초기 조건으로 정의 될 수 있습니다.

아래의 애니메이션은 웨이브 초기화가 있거나없는 웨이브의 모든 유형에 대한 예제를 보여줍니다.
선형 및 비선형 수위 시뮬레이션을 위해 FLOW-3D 의 성공적인 적용이 이루어졌습니다. Bhinder 외의 예를 참조하십시오. al (2009), Chen (2012), Hsu et. al (2012) Thanyamanta et. al (2011) 및 Yilmaz et. 자세한 내용은 알 (2011)을 참조하십시오.
