A High-Pressure Shear Testing Approach To Measure Flow Stresses Near A Friction Stir Welding Tool, David Prymak, Michael Miles, Tracy W. Nelson, Fredrick Michael

Faculty Publications

A new approach for measuring flow stresses near a spinning friction stir welding (FSW) tool is evaluated on AA 6061-T6 plate. The test consists of plunging a cylindrical tool with a flat face into the plate at different rotational speeds, using a variety of constant vertical loads. A viscosity-based model of the shear layer created under the tool is employed to estimate local flow stresses. The flow stresses measured by this approach exhibited an inverse relationship with temperature and a positive dependence on the pressure imposed by the spinning flat-faced tool. Compared to hot compression and hot torsion results, estimated ...

In additive manufacturing (AM), the surface roughness of the deposited parts remains significantly higher than the admissible range for most applications. Additionally, the surface topography of AM parts exhibits waviness profiles between tracks and layers. Therefore, post-processing is indispensable to improve surface quality. Laser-aided machining and polishing can be effective surface improvement processes that can be used due to their availability as the primary energy sources in many metal AM processes. While the initial roughness and waviness of the surface of most AM parts are very high, to achieve dimensional accuracy and minimize roughness, a high input energy density is ...

Makara Journal of Science

The emerging technology in biomedical engineering requires biocompatible materials, which are also referred to as biomaterials. For a material to be considered biocompatible, it should not interact with human tissues in a harmful way, and vice versa. Various properties of biocompatible materials, such as mechanical and optical properties, have to be considered for different biomedical applications. One of the most popular applications of biomaterials is for contact lenses. Hydrogels, specifically poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (PHEMA) hydrogels, are among the most popular ones in ophthalmologic applications, especially in soft contact lenses. This paper reviews the use of PHEMA hydrogels as one of ...

Transients In Plastic Instabilities During Thermo-Mechanical Reversals In An Additively Manufactured Ti6al4v, Sabina C. Kumar 2021 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Transients In Plastic Instabilities During Thermo-Mechanical Reversals In An Additively Manufactured Ti6al4v, Sabina C. Kumar

Doctoral Dissertations

A complex interaction of process variables in an evolving geometry during Additive Manufacturing (AM), can bring about spatial and temporal transients of temperature and stress within each layer in a part. Although AM shares commonalities with conventional processing techniques such as casting, welding, and thermo-mechanical process, published literature has shown that the steady-state conditions are not strictly valid during AM process. Macro-scale fluctuations of thermal gradients (dT/dx: 103 to 107 K/m) combined with local changes in thermal expansion coefficients, crystallographic strains and localized stress-strain constitutive properties in conjunction with thermal cycles, can bring about a plastic ...
