  • Microstructural evolution of a steam-turbine rotor subjected to a
           water-quenching process: numerical simulation and experimental
    • Authors: Chuan Wu; Qing-Ling Meng
      Abstract: Cr-Ni-Mo-V steam-turbine rotors have been widely used as key components in power plants. In this study, a coupled thermomechano-metallurgical model was proposed to simulate the phase transformation and transformation-induced plasticity (TRIP) of a 30Cr2Ni4MoV steam-turbine rotor during a water-quenching process, which was solved using a user defined material mechanical behavior (UMAT) subroutine in ABAQUS. The thermal dilation, heat generation from plastic work, transformation latent heat, phase transformation kinetics, and TRIP were considered in the model. The thermomechanical portion of the model was used to predict the evolution of temperature, strain, and residual stress in the rotor. The phase transformation that occurred during the quenching process was considered. Constitutive models of phase transformations (austenite to pearlite, austenite to bainite, and austenite to martensite) and TRIP were developed. Experimental data were adopted and compared with the predicted results to verify the accuracy of the model. This demonstrates that the model is reliable and accurate. Then, the model was utilized to predict the temperature variation, dimensional change, minimum austenitization time, residual stress, TRIP, and volume fractions of each phase. It is concluded that this model can be a useful computational tool in the design of heat-treatment routines of steam-turbine rotors.

  • Tool-path generation for industrial robotic surface-based application
    • Authors: He Lyu; Yue Liu; Jiao-Yang Guo; He-Ming Zhang; Ze-Xiang Li
      Abstract: Industrial robots are widely used in various applications such as machining, painting, and welding. There is a pressing need for a fast and straightforward robot programming method, especially for surface-based tasks. At present, these tasks are time-consuming and expensive, and it requires an experienced and skilled operator to program the robot for a specific task. Hence, it is essential to automate the tool-path generation in order to eliminate the manual planning. This challenging research has attracted great attention from both industry and academia. In this paper, a tool-path generation method based on a mesh model is introduced. The bounding box tree and kd-tree are adopted in the algorithm to derive the tool path. In addition, the algorithm is integrated into an offline robot programming system offering a comprehensive solution for robot modeling, simulation, as well as tool-path generation. Finally, a milling experiment is performed by creating tool paths on the surface thereby demonstrating the effectiveness of the system.

  • Reduction of die roll height in duplex gears through a sheet-bulk metal
           forming method
    • Authors: Xiao-Long Sun; Xin-Cun Zhuang; Feng-Chun Yang; Zhen Zhao
      Abstract: In the existing shearing processes for fabricating parts such as duplex gears, die roll is difficult to avoid. Accordingly, a method based on sheet-bulk metal forming for fabricating a duplex gear with extremely small die roll in one stroke is proposed in the current work. The process could be divided into three stages according to the forming features: upsetting and shearing stage, lateral extrusion stage, and local filling stage. The die roll appeared in the shearing stage, which could be reduced in the subsequent extrusion and local filling stages. To reveal the underground mechanism, material flows under two situations, as a key factor to influence the forming quality, were compared and investigated. The results revealed that by controlling material flow, one could avoid the defects and reduce the die roll.

  • Research on the microstructure evolution of Ni-based superalloy
           cylindrical parts during hot power spinning
    • Authors: Qin-Xiang Xia; Jin-Chuan Long; Ning-Yuan Zhu; Gang-Feng Xiao
      Abstract: To predict the microstructure evolution and reveal the forming mechanism of Ni-based superalloy cylindrical parts during hot power spinning, a finite element method (FEM) model of deformation-heat transfer-microstructure evolution was established using MSC.Marc software. A numerical simulation was then conducted based on the secondary development of user subroutines, to investigate evolution of the microstructure of a Haynes 230 alloy cylindrical part during hot power spinning. The volume fraction of dynamic recrystallization (DRX) and the grain size of Haynes 230 alloy cylindrical parts during hot power spinning were analyzed. The results showed that the DRX of the spun workpiece was more obvious with an increase in the forming temperature, T, and the total thinning ratio of wall thickness, Ψt. Furthermore, the complete DRX microstructure with fine and uniform grains was obtained when T  \( \geqslant\)  1 100 °C and Ψt \( \geqslant\) 56%, but the grain size of the spun workpiece decreased slightly with an increase in the roller feed rate, f. The experimental results conformed well with simulation results.

  • Cladding of aluminum alloy 6061-T6 to mild steel by an electromagnetic
           tube bulging process: finite element modeling
    • Authors: Zhi-Song Fan; Su-Ting Huang; Jiang-Hua Deng
      Abstract: Bimetal tubes have useful applications in various industries where service conditions demand more different requirements in the tube core than its outside surface. The recent use of electromagnetic forces to deform or join metallic workpieces at high speeds has undergone rapid growth for materials processing. However, to date, no sufficient systematic understanding of the underlying principles of a subsequent high-speed electromagnetic tube bulging process to manufacture bimetal tubes has been gained. In this work, magnetic pulse cladding of Al/Fe clad bimetal tubes was analyzed by finite element modeling (FEM) using ANSYS software. The validity of FEM analyses was first confirmed by experiments in terms of the deformed shape. Second, the effect of cladding parameters (such as axial feeding being the dominant factor in the multi-step process) on the bulging and thinning behavior of the Al clad tube was presented in detail. Both the numerical simulation and experimental results show that no more than 70% of the bulging-coil length is an appropriate amount for the feeding length to prevent defects from being introduced by non-uniform deformation in the transition zone of the Al clad tube. The distributions of the magnetic flux line, magnetic force, and plastic strain in different cladding steps were then analyzed. It was concluded that during the multi-step cladding process, there was an uneven distribution of the magnetic field force along the transition zone. Consequently, inharmonious plastic deformation behavior occurs, which results in a limited acceleration of the transition zone to a certain impact velocity.

  • Forming the transverse inner rib of a curved generatrix part through power
    • Authors: Hong-Rui Zhang; Mei Zhan; Jing Guo; Xian-Xian Wang; Peng-Fei Gao; Fei Ma
      Abstract: How to form high-quality transverse inner ribs through power spinning is a key issue for complicated integrated curved generatrix parts with transverse inner ribs. In this study, the forming characteristics and laws during the power spinning process were investigated using a finite element simulation based on the orthogonal design method. The results show that the transverse inner rib distributes homogeneously along the circumferential direction but inhomogeneously along the generatrix direction. Depressions occur easily in the middle zone of the rib (MZR). The roller nose radius is the most significant parameter of the MZR underfill degree. A larger roller nose radius is helpful to decrease the MZR underfill degree. Furthermore, the preformed billet thickness also plays a vital role in the underfill degree of the front zone of the rib and the back zone of the rib, as well as the depression degree of the outer surface of the rib. By combining the rib-filling characteristics and laws, the optimized forming process window for obtaining high-quality inner ribs was obtained by regression analysis, thus laying a basis for improving the forming quality of curved generatrix parts with transverse inner ribs in power spinning.

  • Physical-based constitutive model considering the microstructure evolution
           during hot working of AZ80 magnesium alloy
    • Authors: Ze-Xing Su; Chao-Yang Sun; Ming-Wang Fu; Ling-Yun Qian
      Abstract: A physical-based constitutive model was developed to model the viscoplastic flow behavior and microstructure evolution of AZ80 magnesium alloy during the hot working process. The competing deformation mechanisms, including work hardening, dynamic recovery, and dynamic recrystallization, in an isothermal compression environment were considered in the model. The internal state variables, including the normalized dislocation density and recrystallized volume fraction, were incorporated into the model to articulate the microstructure evolution during hot deformation. The kinetic condition critical for dynamic recrystallization, considering the effects of the deformation temperature and strain rate, was obtained by employing both the Poliak-Jonas criterion and Zener-Hollomon parameter. Microstructure observations indicate that the recrystallized volume fraction increases with decreasing Z parameter at constant strain, which is consistent with the predicted kinetics model. Based on the developed model, a good correlation was also obtained between the predicted and experimental flow stress. The results indicate a good predictability of the model in describing the hot deformation behavior and microstructure evolution of AZ80 magnesium alloy.

  • Electric discharge phenomenon in dielectric and electrolyte medium
    • Authors: Mukesh Kumar Sindhu; Debasish Nandi; Indrajit Basak
      Pages: 457 - 464
      Abstract: Electric discharge is a common tool nowadays for machining of materials. It may be through a liquid medium or through air. Any metals, hard alloys, and non-metals can be machined using the energy of electric discharge. In electric discharge machining (EDM), the discharge occurs between two electrodes through a liquid medium and it is applicable only for electrically conducting materials and alloys. In electrochemical discharge machining (ECDM), the medium is an aqueous electrolyte and it is of two types. In the first type, the discharge occurs between two electrodes. One of the electrodes is the workpiece, and the other is the tool. In the second type, the discharge occurs between one electrode and an electrolyte. It is used for electrically nonconducting materials and the discharge energy is utilized maintaining the nonconducting workpiece in proximity of the discharge. All these electrical discharges are transient phenomena and do not result in a stable discharge in the form of arc. The output parameters depend on the discharge energy that requires precise control to maintain the accuracy of the machining. For micromachining, the control of the discharge is paramount both in terms of energy and pattern. Using various shaped tools, machining media with additives, different types of applied potentials, and supporting mechanical motions are some of the attempts made to improve the machining output. Optimization of these parameters for machining particular materials (or alloys) is a popular field of research. The present work is directed toward the investigation of discharge initiation and development by analyzing the cell current and discharge voltage relationship for both EDM and ECDM. The rectangular direct current (DC) pulse with different frequencies and the duty factor (on–off time ratio) are used for investigation. Observations on the voltage–current relationship are made for the external potential prior to discharge at discharge and above the discharge potential. Though the external potential above the discharge voltage is useful for machining, these observations elucidate the mechanism regarding the initiation of the electric discharge under different conditions. The manner of discharge development in dielectrics and electrolytes is observed to be different. This understanding will aid in deciding the design of the discharge circuit including the external potential and its pattern for certain desired outputs in machining.

  • Point-based tool representations for modeling complex tool shapes and
           runout for the simulation of process forces and chatter vibrations
    • Authors: P. Wiederkehr; T. Siebrecht; J. Baumann; D. Biermann
      Pages: 301 - 307
      Abstract: Geometric physically-based simulation systems can be used for analyzing and optimizing complex milling processes, for example in the automotive or aerospace industry, where the surface quality and process efficiency are limited due to chatter vibrations. Process simulations using tool models based on the constructive solid geometry (CSG) technique allow the analysis of process forces, tool deflections, and surface location errors resulting from five-axis machining operations. However, modeling complex tool shapes and effects like runout is difficult using CSG models due to the increasing complexity of the shape descriptions. Therefore, a point-based method for modeling the rotating tool considering its deflections is presented in this paper. With this method, tools with complex shapes and runout can be simulated in an efficient and flexible way. The new modeling approach is applied to exemplary milling processes and the simulation results are validated based on machining experiments.

  • Dynamic interplay between dislocations and precipitates in creep aging of
           an Al-Zn-Mg-Cu alloy
    • Authors: Heng Li; Tian-Jun Bian; Chao Lei; Gao-Wei Zheng; Yu-Fei Wang
      Abstract: Creep age forming (CAF) is an advanced forming technology used for manufacturing large complex integrated panel components. However, in creep aging (CA), unlike in sole creep or aging procedure, the dislocation movement and the precipitation process occur simultaneously, leading to difficulty in understanding of the dynamic interplay between these two phenomena. In this work, taking 7050 Al alloy, a typical Al-Zn-Mg-Cu alloy, as the test material, an experimental scheme combining pre-deformation, artificial aging (AA), and tensile/compressive CA is designed to decouple and reveal the dynamic interaction mechanism of both phenomena. From AA experiments, the static interaction between dislocations and precipitates is studied, and then their dynamic interactions in CA and each evolution are comparatively investigated. The research shows that both total strain and strain rate increase with the increase in pre-deformation in tensile and compressive CA. However, the total creep strain in compressive CA is larger than that in tensile CA. In additional, the more the dislocations are induced, the sparser and more heterogeneous the overall distribution of precipitates becomes. For dynamic interplay, in the first stage of CA (I), under thermal-mechanical loading, the GP zones and η′ phases gradually nucleate and grow, while the effect of dislocation multiplication is dominant compared with dislocation annihilation, leading to an increase in total dislocation density. Soon, the dislocation movement is gradually hindered by tangling, pile-up, and the precipitates that have grown on the dislocation lines, this decreases the mobile dislocation density and results in a significant decrease in creep rate. In the second stage (II), the precipitates grow further, especially those lying on the dislocation lines; the effects of pinning and hindrance are enhanced until the dislocation multiplication and annihilation reach a dynamic equilibrium, and the total and mobile dislocation densities tend to be roughly unchanged, thus, the creep rate remains relatively constant in this stage.

  • Modeling of laser adjustment for large diameter tubes using robotic
           kinematic theories
    • Authors: Pin Li; Jun-Tong Xi
      Abstract: Laser adjustment is a new technique that employs laser forming processes to align components along specific directions. To develop a laser adjustment solution with a minimal number of bends, herein, a new modeling and calculation method that uses robotic kinematic theories is introduced. A numerical example and the corresponding laser adjustment solution are presented. The simulation results suggest that a straight tube with a flange connector can be adjusted to match the corresponding connector with three bends. Finally, the simulation results were verified using experiments. The maximum deviation was approximately 0.4 mm and the deviation of the flange connector was smaller, showing that a good adjustment quality could be achieved using the specific adjustment solution.

  • Performance analysis of a thick copper-electroplated FDM ABS plastic rapid
           tool EDM electrode
    • Authors: Saroj Kumar Padhi; S. S. Mahapatra; Rosalin Padhi; Harish Chandra Das
      Abstract: The importance of rapid tooling (RT) and additive manufacturing (AM) appears to be indispensable for boosting the process of manufacturing and expanding the horizon of production technology worldwide. This concept draws the attention of numerous scholars to arrive at a conclusive theory for the widespread utilization of RT. This study attempts to determine the viability and performance of an RT electrode in the field of electro discharge machining (EDM). The electrode prototype is made using an acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) plastic by fused deposition modeling (FDM), an AM technique, electroplated with copper of desired thickness, and used in die sinking EDM of D2 steel. The scanning electron microscope analysis of the electroplated samples confirms that it is possible to obtain the desired thickness of the metal by electroplating on any electrically conductive surface. In the present work, an experimental study is performed for examining the electroplated copper thickness of the plastic EDM electrode and its performances. It is found that the electroplated ABS plastic EDM RT electrode successfully performs the machining operation of D2 steel, and the results are comparable with a solid electrode. The study reveals that the RT electrode can be regarded as a viable tool for rough cutting or semi-finishing cut EDM functions. The experimental results are thoroughly discussed, examined, analyzed, and evaluated for the purpose of developing the appropriate form of the concept.

  • Improved thermal resistance network model of motorized spindle system
           considering temperature variation of cooling system
    • Authors: Yang Liu; Ya-Xin Ma; Qing-Yu Meng; Xi-Cheng Xin; Shuai-Shuai Ming
      Abstract: In the motorized spindle system of a computer numerical control (CNC) machine tool, internal heat sources are formed during high-speed rotation; these cause thermal errors and affect the machining accuracy. To address this problem, in this study, a thermal resistance network model of the motorized spindle system is established based on the heat transfer theory. The heat balance equations of the critical thermal nodes are established according to this model with Kirchhoff’s law. Then, they are solved using the Newmark-β method to obtain the temperature of each main component, and steady thermal analysis and transient thermal analysis of the motorized spindle system are performed. In order to obtain accurate thermal characteristics of the spindle system, the thermal-conduction resistance of each component and the thermal-convection resistance between the cooling system and the components of the spindle system are accurately obtained considering the effect of the heat exchanger on the temperature of the coolant in the cooling system. Simultaneously, high-precision magnetic temperature sensors are used to detect the temperature variation of the spindle in the CNC machining center at different rotational speeds. The experimental results demonstrate that the thermal resistance network model can predict the temperature field distribution in the spindle system with reasonable accuracy. In addition, the influences of the rotational speed and cooling conditions on the temperature increase of the main components of the spindle system are analyzed. Finally, a few recommendations are provided to improve the thermal performance of the spindle system under different operational conditions.

  • Flexural strength of fused filament fabricated (FFF) PLA parts on an
           open-source 3D printer
    • Authors: Shilpesh R. Rajpurohit; Harshit K. Dave
      Abstract: Fused filament fabrication (FFF) has been widely used to develop prototypes as well as functional parts owing to its capability for creating parts with complex geometries in a short time without the specific requirement of tooling. The mechanical properties of parts produced by FFF exhibit 70%–80% of the mechanical properties of parts produced by injection molding. The mechanical properties of FFF-produced parts are primarily dependent on the selection of various process variables. The mechanical properties of the part can be enhanced through the proper selection of process variables. In the present experimental investigation, the effects of the process variables, viz. raster angle, layer height, and raster width on the flexural properties of FFF-printed polylactic acid (PLA) is studied. The result shows that flexural strength is primarily influenced by layer height followed by raster angle. The sample printed with 100-µm layer height and 0° raster angle exhibits a higher tensile strength. Further, the microscopic examination of the deformed specimen is performed to understand the mode of failure. Specimens printed at different raster angles show different modes of failure.

  • Characteristics of force chains in frictional interface during abrasive
           flow machining based on discrete element method
    • Authors: Tian-Xun Xiu; Wei Wang; Kun Liu; Zhi-Yong Wang; Dao-Zhu Wei
      Abstract: Abrading is a very important sub-technology of the surface treatment technology with vast applications in the industry. This study aims at analyzing the inherent laws of friction systems during abrading. In particle flow code modeling, the abrading process can be simplified to the movement of particles in a parallel-plate shear friction system. In this study, the PFC2D software is used to construct the particle flow friction system with the set of parallel plates and the model parameters according to the abrading processing equipment and processing materials, control the simulation of a single variable, and compare the output data to estimate the impact of change of parameters on the force chain. The simulation results show that the shear dilatancy can be divided into three stages: plastic strain, macroscopic failure, and granular recombination stages. The distribution and load rates of the weak force chains depend on the load, velocity, friction coefficient between granules, granular diameter, and number of granular layers. The number of granular layers and the load increase cause the direction of the force chain to be oriented with the vertical direction, and the force chains move toward the horizontal direction as the velocity increases. The increase in load does not cause the shear dilatancy stage to occur; the velocity, friction coefficient between granules, and granular diameter increase cause the shear dilatancy to occur gradually.

  • Investigation into the room temperature creep-deformation of potassium
           dihydrogen phosphate crystals using nanoindentation
    • Authors: Yong Zhang; Ning Hou; Liang-Chi Zhang
      Abstract: It has been a tremendous challenge to manufacture damage-free and smooth surfaces of potassium dihydrogen phosphate (KDP) crystals to meet the requirements of high-energy laser systems. The intrinsic issue is whether a KDP crystal can be plastically deformed so that the material can be removed in a ductile mode during the machining of KDP. This study investigates the room temperature creep-deformation of KDP crystals with the aid of nanoindentation. A stress analysis was carried out to identify the creep mechanism. The results showed that KDP crystals could be plastically deformed at the nano-scale. Dislocation motion is responsible for creep-deformation. Both creep rate and creep depth decrease with decrease in peak force and loading rate. Dislocation nucleation and propagation bring about pop-ins in the load-displacement curves during nanoindentation.

  • Application of grey relational analysis based on Taguchi method for
           optimizing machining parameters in hard turning of high chrome cast iron
    • Authors: Ali Kalyon; Mustafa Günay; Dursun Özyürek
      Abstract: High chrome white cast iron is particularly preferred in the production of machine parts requiring high wear resistance. Although the amount of chrome in these materials provides high wear and corrosion resistances, it makes their machinability difficult. This study presents an application of the grey relational analysis based on the Taguchi method in order to optimize chrome ratio, cutting speed, feed rate, and cutting depth for the resultant cutting force (FR) and surface roughness (Ra) when hard turning high chrome cast iron with a cubic boron nitride (CBN) insert. The effect levels of machining parameters on FR and Ra were examined by an analysis of variance (ANOVA). A grey relational grade (GRG) was calculated to simultaneously minimize FR and Ra. The ANOVA results based on GRG indicated that the feed rate, followed by the cutting depth, was the main parameter and contributed to responses. Optimal levels of parameters were found when the chrome ratio, cutting speed, feed rate, and cutting depth were 12%, 100 m/min, 0.05 mm/r, and 0.1 mm, respectively, based on the multiresponse optimization results obtained by considering the maximum signal to noise (S/N) ratio of GRG. Confirmation results were verified by calculating the confidence level within the interval width.

  • Use of inverse stability solutions for identification of uncertainties in
           the dynamics of machining processes
    • Authors: Lutfi Taner Tunc; Orkun Ozsahin
      Abstract: Research on dynamics and stability of machining operations has attracted considerable attention. Currently, most studies focus on the forward solution of dynamics and stability in which material properties and the frequency response function at the tool tip are known to predict stable cutting conditions. However, the forward solution may fail to perform accurately in cases wherein the aforementioned information is partially known or varies based on the process conditions, or could involve several uncertainties in the dynamics. Under these circumstances, inverse stability solutions are immensely useful to identify the amount of variation in the effective damping or stiffness acting on the machining system. In this paper, the inverse stability solutions and their use for such purposes are discussed through relevant examples and case studies. Specific areas include identification of process damping at low cutting speeds and variations in spindle dynamics at high rotational speeds.

  • Hidden feature extraction for unstructured agricultural environment based
           on supervised kernel locally linear embedding modeling
    • Authors: Zhong-Hua Miao; Chen-Hui Ma; Zhi-Yuan Gao; Ming-Jun Wang; Cheng-Liang Liu
      Abstract: An online hidden feature extraction algorithm is proposed for unknown and unstructured agricultural environments based on a supervised kernel locally linear embedding (SKLLE) algorithm. Firstly, an online obtaining method for scene training samples is given to obtain original feature data. Secondly, Bayesian estimation of the a posteriori probability of a cluster center is performed. Thirdly, nonlinear kernel mapping function construction is employed to map the original feature data to hyper-high-dimensional kernel space. Fourthly, the automatic determination of hidden feature dimensions is performed using a local manifold learning algorithm. Then, a low-level manifold computation in hidden space is completed. Finally, long-range scene perception is realized using a 1-NN classifier. Experiments are conducted to show the effectiveness and the influence of parameter selection for the proposed algorithm. The kernel principal component analysis (KPCA), locally linear embedding (LLE), and supervised locally linear embedding (SLLE) methods are compared under the same experimental unstructured agricultural environment scene. Test results show that the proposed algorithm is more suitable for unstructured agricultural environments than other existing methods, and that the computational load is significantly reduced.

    • Authors: Christian Brecher; Prateek Chavan; Alexander Epple
      Abstract: The experimental determination of stability lobe diagrams (SLDs) in milling can be realized by either continuously varying the spindle speed or by varying the depth of cut. In this paper, a method for combining both these methods along with an online chatter detection algorithm is proposed for efficient determination of SLDs. To accomplish this, communication between the machine control and chatter detection algorithm is established, and the machine axes are controlled to change the spindle speed or depth of cut. The efficiency of the proposed method is analyzed in this paper.
