In this project a TIG welding simulation has been simulated on an aluminum (5052 - H32) oil tank with very small thickness. The minimum and maximum thicknesses were 1mm and 5mm respectively. The aim of the simulation was to determine the residual stress in the tank after TIG welding.
In this project, a thermal micro actuator has been geometrically design based on various boundary conditions (Thermal, displacement and voltage boundary conditions on the end of each edge).
Stress analyses due to several boundary conditions have been performed on an oil digging rig to evaluate the effects of operational forces on the rig structure.
Friction Stir Welding (FSW) Simulation Using an Out of Alignment Pin
In this project, the tool is modeled with an out of alignment pin and the two parts -which are going to be welded are- are modeled using SPH (Smooth particle hydrodynamics) due to complex element deformation.
Small work piece was cut with cutting tool. The simulation was done using SPH technology with fine mesh property and the reaction force to the tool was measured and verified by experimental data.
I Performed an explicit simulation of a hot forging process of a screwdriver with no temperature change. The material was plastic kinematic for the piece work and the dies were considered as rigid parts.
