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).
In this Project, a constant bolted frame were modeled which the location of the center joint between internal links, varied considerably. The finite element analysis were performed to consider the amount of total displacement in accordance with the center joint location.
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) is a solid-state welding technique that involves the joining of metals without filler materials. A cylindrical rotating tool plunges into a rigidly clamped workpiece and moves along the joint to be welded.
The wear damage is one of the crucial factors of wheel damage in the rail industry. In this project, some material has been added to a wheel with a pre-defined thickness and the amount of residual stresses were investigated. This part was done with ANSYS and an APDL code was generated.
In this project, an algorithm has been written with use of Mechanical APDL to eliminate the elements which carry the least loads in each optimization stage. After some killing steps, the model would get the lightest weight with the same load capacity as the whole model.
In this project, a single-point mechanism was theoretically designed and checked its functionality in MSC.ADAMS in order to damp the wind forces in several directions.
