레이저 금속 적층 제조(AM) 공정의 낮은 에너지 효율은 대규모 산업 생산에서 잠재적인 지속 가능성 문제입니다. 레이저 용융을 위한 에너지 효율의 명시적 조사는 용융 금속의 불투명한 특성으로 인해 매우 어려운 용융 풀 치수 및 증기 내림의 직접적인 특성화를 요구합니다. 

여기에서 우리는 현장 고속 고에너지 x-선 이미징에 의해 Al6061의 레이저 분말 베드 융합(LPBF) 동안 증기 강하 및 용융 풀 형성에 대한 TiC 나노 입자의 효과에 대한 직접적인 관찰 및 정량화를 보고합니다. 정량 결과를 바탕으로, 우리는 Al6061의 LPBF 동안 TiC 나노 입자가 있거나 없을 때 레이저 용융 에너지 효율(여기서 재료를 용융하는 데 필요한 에너지 대 레이저 빔에 의해 전달되는 에너지의 비율로 정의)을 계산했습니다. 

결과는 TiC 나노 입자를 Al6061에 추가하면 레이저 용융 에너지 효율이 크게 증가한다는 것을 보여줍니다(평균 114% 증가, 312에서 521% 증가). W 레이저 출력, 0.4m  /s 스캔 속도). 체계적인 특성 측정, 시뮬레이션 및 x-선 이미징 연구를 통해 우리는 처음으로 세 가지 메커니즘이 함께 작동하여 레이저 용융 에너지 효율을 향상시킨다는 것을 확인할 수 있었습니다.

여기서 보고한 Al6061의 LPBF 동안 레이저 용융 에너지 효율을 증가시키기 위해 TiC 나노입자를 사용하는 방법 및 메커니즘은 보다 에너지 효율적인 레이저 금속 AM을 위한 공급원료 재료의 개발을 안내할 수 있습니다.

The low energy efficiency of the laser metal additive manufacturing (AM) process is a potential sustainability concern for large-scale industrial production. Explicit investigation of the energy efficiency for laser melting requires the direct characterization of melt pool dimension and vapor depression, which is very difficult due to the opaque nature of the molten metal. Here we report the direct observation and quantification of effects of the TiC nanoparticles on the vapor depression and melt pool formation during laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) of Al6061 by in-situ high-speed high-energy x-ray imaging. Based on the quantification results, we calculated the laser melting energy efficiency (defined here as the ratio of the energy needed to melt the material to the energy delivered by the laser beam) with and without TiC nanoparticles during LPBF of Al6061. The results show that adding TiC nanoparticles into Al6061 leads to a significant increase of laser melting energy efficiency (114% increase on average, 521% increase under 312 W laser power, 0.4 m/s scan speed). Systematic property measurement, simulation, and x-ray imaging studies enable us, for the first time, to identify that three mechanisms work together to enhance the laser melting energy efficiency: (1) adding TiC nanoparticles increases the absorptivity; (2) adding TiC nanoparticles decreases the thermal conductivity, and (3) adding TiC nanoparticles enables the initiation of vapor depression and multiple reflection at lower laser power (i.e., lowers the laser power threshold for keyholing). The method and mechanisms of using TiC nanoparticles to increase the laser melting energy efficiency during LPBF of Al6061 we reported here may guide the development of feedstock materials for more energy efficient laser metal AM.

Abstract

An entrainment defect (also known as a double oxide film defect or bifilm) acts a void containing an entrapped gas when submerged into a light-alloy melt, thus reducing the quality and reproducibility of the final castings. Previous publications, carried out with Al-alloy castings, reported that this trapped gas could be subsequently consumed by the reaction with the surrounding melt, thus reducing the void volume and negative effect of entrainment defects. Compared with Al-alloys, the entrapped gas within Mg-alloy might be more efficiently consumed due to the relatively high reactivity of magnesium. However, research into the entrainment defects within Mg alloys has been significantly limited. In the present work, AZ91 alloy castings were produced under different carrier gas atmospheres (i.e., SF6/CO2, SF6/air). The evolution processes of the entrainment defects contained in AZ91 alloy were suggested according to the microstructure inspections and thermodynamic calculations. The defects formed in the different atmospheres have a similar sandwich-like structure, but their oxide films contained different combinations of compounds. The use of carrier gases, which were associated with different entrained-gas consumption rates, affected the reproducibility of AZ91 castings.

1. Introduction

As the lightest structural metal available on Earth, magnesium became one of the most attractive light metals over the last few decades. The magnesium industry has consequently experienced a rapid development in the last 20 years [1,2], indicating a large growth in demand for Mg alloys all over the world. Nowadays, the use of Mg alloys can be found in the fields of automobiles, aerospace, electronics and etc.[3,4]. It has been predicted that the global consumption of Mg metals will further increase in the future, especially in the automotive industry, as the energy efficiency requirement of both traditional and electric vehicles further push manufactures lightweight their design [3,5,6].

The sustained growth in demand for Mg alloys motivated a wide interest in the improvement of the quality and mechanical properties of Mg-alloy castings. During a Mg-alloy casting process, surface turbulence of the melt can lead to the entrapment of a doubled-over surface film containing a small quantity of the surrounding atmosphere, thus forming an entrainment defect (also known as a double oxide film defect or bifilm) [7][8][9][10]. The random size, quantity, orientation, and placement of entrainment defects are widely accepted to be significant factors linked to the variation of casting properties [7]. In addition, Peng et al. [11] found that entrained oxides films in AZ91 alloy melt acted as filters to Al8Mn5 particles, trapping them as they settle. Mackie et al. [12] further suggested that entrained oxide films can act to trawl the intermetallic particles, causing them to cluster and form extremely large defects. The clustering of intermetallic compounds made the entrainment defects more detrimental for the casting properties.

Most of the previous studies regarding entrainment defects were carried out on Al-alloys [7,[13][14][15][16][17][18], and a few potential methods have been suggested for diminishing their negative effect on the quality of Al-alloy castings. Nyahumwa et al.,[16] shows that the void volume within entrainment defects could be reduced by a hot isostatic pressing (HIP) process. Campbell [7] suggested the entrained gas within the defects could be consumed due to reaction with the surrounding melt, which was further verified by Raiszedeh and Griffiths [19].The effect of the entrained gas consumption on the mechanical properties of Al-alloy castings has been investigated by [8,9], suggesting that the consumption of the entrained gas promoted the improvement of the casting reproducibility.

Compared with the investigation concerning the defects within Al-alloys, research into the entrainment defects within Mg-alloys has been significantly limited. The existence of entrainment defects has been demonstrated in Mg-alloy castings [20,21], but their behaviour, evolution, as well as entrained gas consumption are still not clear.

In a Mg-alloy casting process, the melt is usually protected by a cover gas to avoid magnesium ignition. The cavities of sand or investment moulds are accordingly required to be flushed with the cover gas prior to the melt pouring [22]. Therefore, the entrained gas within Mg-alloy castings should contain the cover gas used in the casting process, rather than air only, which may complicate the structure and evolution of the corresponding entrainment defects.

SF6 is a typical cover gas widely used for Mg-alloy casting processes [23][24][25]. Although this cover gas has been restricted to use in European Mg-alloy foundries, a commercial report has pointed out that this cover is still popular in global Mg-alloy industry, especially in the countries which dominated the global Mg-alloy production, such as China, Brazil, India, etc. [26]. In addition, a survey in academic publications also showed that this cover gas was widely used in recent Mg-alloy studies [27]. The protective mechanism of SF6 cover gas (i.e., the reaction between liquid Mg-alloy and SF6 cover gas) has been investigated by several previous researchers, but the formation process of the surface oxide film is still not clearly understood, and even some published results are conflicting with each other. In early 1970s, Fruehling [28] found that the surface film formed under SF6 was MgO mainly with traces of fluorides, and suggested that SF6 was absorbed in the Mg-alloy surface film. Couling [29] further noticed that the absorbed SF6 reacted with the Mg-alloy melt to form MgF2. In last 20 years, different structures of the Mg-alloy surface films have been reported, as detailed below.(1)

Single-layered film. Cashion [30,31] used X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) and Auger Spectroscopy (AES) to identify the surface film as MgO and MgF2. He also found that composition of the film was constant throughout the thickness and the whole experimental holding time. The film observed by Cashion had a single-layered structure created from a holding time from 10 min to 100 min.(2)

Double-layered film. Aarstad et. al [32] reported a doubled-layered surface oxide film in 2003. They observed several well-distributed MgF2 particles attached to the preliminary MgO film and grew until they covered 25–50% of the total surface area. The inward diffusion of F through the outer MgO film was the driving force for the evolution process. This double-layered structure was also supported by Xiong’s group [25,33] and Shih et al. [34].(3)

Triple-layered film. The triple-layered film and its evolution process were reported in 2002 by Pettersen [35]. Pettersen found that the initial surface film was a MgO phase and then gradually evolved to the stable MgF2 phase by the inward diffusion of F. In the final stage, the film has a triple-layered structure with a thin O-rich interlayer between the thick top and bottom MgF2 layers.(4)

Oxide film consisted of discrete particles. Wang et al [36] stirred the Mg-alloy surface film into the melt under a SF6 cover gas, and then inspect the entrained surface film after the solidification. They found that the entrained surface films were not continues as the protective surface films reported by other researchers but composed of discrete particles. The young oxide film was composed of MgO nano-sized oxide particles, while the old oxide films consist of coarse particles (about 1  µm in average size) on one side that contained fluorides and nitrides.

The oxide films of a Mg-alloy melt surface or an entrained gas are both formed due to the reaction between liquid Mg-alloy and the cover gas, thus the above-mentioned research regarding the Mg-alloy surface film gives valuable insights into the evolution of entrainment defects. The protective mechanism of SF6 cover gas (i.e., formation of a Mg-alloy surface film) therefore indicated a potential complicated evolution process of the corresponding entrainment defects.

However, it should be noted that the formation of a surface film on a Mg-alloy melt is in a different situation to the consumption of an entrained gas that is submerged into the melt. For example, a sufficient amount of cover gas was supported during the surface film formation in the studies previously mentioned, which suppressed the depletion of the cover gas. In contrast, the amount of entrained gas within a Mg-alloy melt is finite, and the entrained gas may become fully depleted. Mirak [37] introduced 3.5%SF6/air bubbles into a pure Mg-alloy melt solidifying in a specially designed permanent mould. It was found that the gas bubbles were entirely consumed, and the corresponding oxide film was a mixture of MgO and MgF2. However, the nucleation sites (such as the MgF2 spots observed by Aarstad [32] and Xiong [25,33]) were not observed. Mirak also speculated that the MgF2 formed prior to MgO in the oxide film based on the composition analysis, which was opposite to the surface film formation process reported in previous literatures (i.e., MgO formed prior to MgF2). Mirak’s work indicated that the oxide-film formation of an entrained gas may be quite different from that of surface films, but he did not reveal the structure and evolution of the oxide films.

In addition, the use of carrier gas in the cover gases also influenced the reaction between the cover gas and the liquid Mg-alloy. SF6/air required a higher content of SF6 than did a SF6/CO2 carrier gas [38], to avoid the ignition of molten magnesium, revealing different gas-consumption rates. Liang et.al [39] suggested that carbon was formed in the surface film when CO2 was used as a carrier gas, which was different from the films formed in SF6/air. An investigation into Mg combustion [40] reported a detection of Mg2C3 in the Mg-alloy sample after burning in CO2, which not only supported Liang’s results, but also indicated a potential formation of Mg carbides in double oxide film defects.

The work reported here is an investigation into the behaviour and evolution of entrainment defects formed in AZ91 Mg-alloy castings, protected by different cover gases (i.e., SF6/air and SF6/CO2). These carrier gases have different protectability for liquid Mg alloy, which may be therefore associated with different consumption rates and evolution processes of the corresponding entrained gases. The effect of the entrained-gas consumption on the reproducibility of AZ91 castings was also studied.

2. Experiment

2.1. Melting and casting

Three kilograms AZ91 alloy was melted in a mild steel crucible at 700 ± 5 °C. The composition of the AZ91 alloy has been shown in Table 1. Prior to heating, all oxide scale on the ingot surface was removed by machining. The cover gases used were 0.5%SF6/air or 0.5%SF6/CO2 (vol.%) at a flow rate of 6 L/min for different castings. The melt was degassed by argon with a flow rate of 0.3 L/min for 15 min [41,42], and then poured into sand moulds. Prior to pouring, the sand mould cavity was flushed with the cover gas for 20 min [22]. The residual melt (around 1 kg) was solidified in the crucible.

Fig. 1(a) shows the dimensions of the casting with runners. A top-filling system was deliberately used to generate entrainment defects in the final castings. Green and Campbell [7,43] suggested that a top-filling system caused more entrainment events (i.e., bifilms) during a casting process, compared with a bottom-filling system. A melt flow simulation (Flow-3D software) of this mould, using Reilly’s model [44] regarding the entrainment events, also predicted that a large amount of bifilms would be contained in the final casting (denoted by the black particles in Fig. 1b).

(a) Dimensions of the casting with runners (unit: mm), (b) a melt flow simulation using Flow-3D software together with Reilly's model[44], predicted that a large amount of bifilms (denoted by the black particles) would be contained in the final casting. (c) A solidification simulation using Pro-cast software showed that no shrinkage defect was contained in the final casting.

Shrinkage defects also affect the mechanical properties and reproducibility of castings. Since this study focused on the effect of bifilms on the casting quality, the mould has been deliberately designed to avoid generating shrinkage defects. A solidification simulation using ProCAST software showed that no shrinkage defect would be contained in the final casting, as shown in Fig. 1c. The casting soundness has also been confirmed using a real time X-ray prior to the test bar machining.

The sand moulds were made from resin-bonded silica sand, containing 1wt. % PEPSET 5230 resin and 1wt. % PEPSET 5112 catalyst. The sand also contained 2 wt.% Na2SiF6 to act as an inhibitor [45]. The pouring temperature was 700 ± 5 °C. After the solidification, a section of the runner bars was sent to the Sci-Lab Analytical Ltd for a H-content analysis (LECO analysis), and all the H-content measurements were carried out on the 5th day after the casting process. Each of the castings was machined into 40 test bars for a tensile strength test, using a Zwick 1484 tensile test machine with a clip extensometer. The fracture surfaces of the broken test bars were examined using Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM, Philips JEOL7000) with an accelerating voltage of 5–15 kV. The fractured test bars, residual Mg-alloy solidified in the crucible, and the casting runners were then sectioned, polished and also inspected using the same SEM. The cross-section of the oxide film found on the test-bar fracture surface was exposed by the Focused Ion Beam milling technique (FIB), using a CFEI Quanta 3D FEG FIB-SEM. The oxide film required to be analysed was coated with a platinum layer. Then, a gallium ion beam, accelerated to 30 kV, milled the material substrate surrounding the platinum coated area to expose the cross section of the oxide film. EDS analysis of the oxide film’s cross section was carried out using the FIB equipment at accelerating voltage of 30 kV.

2.2. Oxidation cell

As previously mentioned, several past researchers investigated the protective film formed on a Mg-alloy melt surface [38,39,[46][47][48][49][50][51][52]. During these experiments, the amount of cover gas used was sufficient, thus suppressing the depletion of fluorides in the cover gas. The experiment described in this section used a sealed oxidation cell, which limited the supply of cover gas, to study the evolution of the oxide films of entrainment defects. The cover gas contained in the oxidation cell was regarded as large-size “entrained bubble”.

As shown in Fig. 2, the main body of the oxidation cell was a closed-end mild steel tube which had an inner length of 400 mm, and an inner diameter of 32 mm. A water-cooled copper tube was wrapped around the upper section of the cell. When the tube was heated, the cooling system created a temperature difference between the upper and lower sections, causing the interior gas to convect within the tube. The temperature was monitored by a type-K thermocouple located at the top of the crucible. Nie et al. [53] suggested that the SF6 cover gas would react with the steel wall of the holding furnace when they investigated the surface film of a Mg-alloy melt. To avoid this reaction, the interior surface of the steel oxidation cell (shown in Fig. 2) and the upper half section of the thermocouple were coated with boron nitride (the Mg-alloy was not in contact with boron nitride).

Fig. 2. Schematic of the oxidation cell used to study the evolution of the oxide films of the entrainment defects (unit mm).

During the experiment, a block of solid AZ91 alloy was placed in a magnesia crucible located at the bottom of the oxidation cell. The cell was heated to 100 °C in an electric resistance furnace under a gas flow rate of 1 L/min. The cell was held at this temperature for 20 min, to replace the original trapped atmosphere (i.e. air). Then, the oxidation cell was further heated to 700 °C, melting the AZ91 sample. The gas inlet and exit valves were then closed, creating a sealed environment for oxidation under a limited supply of cover gas. The oxidation cell was then held at 700 ± 10 °C for periods of time from 5 min to 30 min in 5-min intervals. At the end of each holding time, the cell was quenched in water. After cooling to room temperature, the oxidised sample was sectioned, polished, and subsequently examined by SEM.

3. Results

3.1. Structure and composition of the entrainment defects formed in SF6/air

The structure and composition of the entrainment defect formed in the AZ91 castings under a cover gas of 0.5%SF6/air was observed by SEM and EDS. The results indicate that there exist two types of entrainment defects which are sketched in Fig. 3: (1) Type A defect whose oxide film has a traditional single-layered structure and (2) Type B defect, whose oxide film has two layers. The details of these defects were introduced in the following. Here it should be noticed that, as the entrainment defects are also known as biofilms or double oxide film, the oxide films of Type B defect were referred to as “multi-layered oxide film” or “multi-layered structure” in the present work to avoid a confusing description such as “the double-layered oxide film of a double oxide film defect”.

Fig. 3. Schematic of the different types of entrainment defects found in AZ91 castings. (a) Type A defect with a single-layered oxide film and (b) Type B defect with two-layered oxide film.

Fig. 4(a-b) shows a Type A defect having a compact single-layered oxide film with about 0.4 µm thickness. Oxygen, fluorine, magnesium and aluminium were detected in this film (Fig. 4c). It is speculated that oxide film is the mixture of fluoride and oxide of magnesium and aluminium. The detection of fluorine revealed that an entrained cover gas was contained in the formation of this defect. That is to say that the pores shown in Fig. 4(a) were not shrinkage defects or hydrogen porosity, but entrainment defects. The detection of aluminium was different with Xiong and Wang’s previous study [47,48], which showed that no aluminium was contained in their surface film of an AZ91 melt protected by a SF6 cover gas. Sulphur could not be clearly recognized in the element map, but there was a S-peak in the corresponding ESD spectrum.

Fig. 5(a-b) shows a Type B entrainment defect having a multi-layered oxide film. The compact outer layers of the oxide films were enriched with fluorine and oxygen (Fig. 5c), while their relatively porous inner layers were only enriched with oxygen (i.e., poor in fluorine) and partly grew together, thus forming a sandwich-like structure. Therefore, it is speculated that the outer layer is the mixture of fluoride and oxide, while the inner layer is mainly oxide. Sulphur could only be recognized in the EDX spectrum and could not be clearly identified in the element map, which might be due to the small S-content in the cover gas (i.e., 0.5% volume content of SF6 in the cover gas). In this oxide film, aluminium was contained in the outer layer of this oxide film but could not be clearly detected in the inner layer. Moreover, the distribution of Al seems to be uneven. It can be found that, in the right side of the defect, aluminium exists in the film but its concentration can not be identified to be higher than the matrix. However, there is a small area with much higher aluminium concentration in the left side of the defect. Such an uneven distribution of aluminium was also observed in other defects (shown in the following), and it is the result of the formation of some oxide particles in or under the film.

Figs. 4 and 5 show cross sectional observations of the entrainment defects formed in the AZ91 alloy sample cast under a cover gas of SF6/air. It is not sufficient to characterize the entrainment defects only by the figures observed from the two-dimensional section. To have a further understanding, the surface of the entrainment defects (i.e. the oxide film) was further studied by observing the fracture surface of the test bars.

Fig. 6(a) shows fracture surfaces of an AZ91 alloy tensile test bar produced in SF6/air. Symmetrical dark regions can be seen on both sides of the fracture surfaces. Fig. 6(b) shows boundaries between the dark and bright regions. The bright region consisted of jagged and broken features, while the surface of the dark region was relatively smooth and flat. In addition, the EDS results (Fig. 6c-d and Table 2) show that fluorine, oxygen, sulphur, and nitrogen were only detected in the dark regions, indicating that the dark regions were surface protective films entrained into the melt. Therefore, it could be suggested that the dark regions were an entrainment defect with consideration of their symmetrical nature. Similar defects on fracture surfaces of Al-alloy castings have been previously reported [7]Nitrides were only found in the oxide films on the test-bar fracture surfaces but never detected in the cross-sectional samples shown in Figs. 4 and 5. An underlying reason is that the nitrides contained in these samples may have hydrolysed during the sample polishing process [54].

In conjunction with the cross-sectional observation of the defects shown in Figs. 4 and 5, the structure of an entrainment defect contained in a tensile test bar was sketched as shown in Fig. 6(e). The defect contained an entrained gas enclosed by its oxide film, creating a void section inside the test bar. When the tensile force applied on the defect during the fracture process, the crack was initiated at the void section and propagated along the entrainment defect, since cracks would be propagated along the weakest path [55]. Therefore, when the test bar was finally fractured, the oxide films of entrainment defect appeared on both fracture surfaces of the test bar, as shown in Fig. 6(a).

3.2. Structure and composition of the entrainment defects formed in SF6/CO2

Similar to the entrainment defect formed in SF6/air, the defects formed under a cover gas of 0.5%SF6/CO2 also had two types of oxide films (i.e., single-layered and multi-layered types). Fig. 7(a) shows an example of the entrainment defects containing a multi-layered oxide film. A magnified observation to the defect (Fig. 7b) shows that the inner layers of the oxide films had grown together, presenting a sandwich-like structure, which was similar to the defects formed in an atmosphere of SF6/air (Fig. 5b). An EDS spectrum (Fig. 7c) revealed that the joint area (inner layer) of this sandwich-like structure mainly contained magnesium oxides. Peaks of fluorine, sulphur, and aluminium were recognized in this EDS spectrum, but their amount was relatively small. In contrast, the outer layers of the oxide films were compact and composed of a mixture of fluorides and oxides (Fig. 7d-e).

Fig. 8(a) shows an entrainment defect on the fracture surfaces of an AZ91 alloy tensile test bar, which was produced in an atmosphere of 0.5%SF6/CO2. The corresponding EDS results (Table 3) showed that oxide film contained fluorides and oxides. Sulphur and nitrogen were not detected. Besides, a magnified observation (Fig. 8b) indicated spots on the oxide film surface. The diameter of the spots ranged from hundreds of nanometres to a few micron meters.

To further reveal the structure and composition of the oxide film clearly, the cross-section of the oxide film on a test-bar fracture surface was onsite exposed using the FIB technique (Fig. 9). As shown in Fig. 9a, a continuous oxide film was found between the platinum coating layer and the Mg-Al alloy substrate. Fig. 9 (b-c) shows a magnified observation to oxide films, indicating a multi-layered structure (denoted by the red box in Fig. 9c). The bottom layer was enriched with fluorine and oxygen and should be the mixture of fluoride and oxide, which was similar to the “outer layer” shown in Figs. 5 and 7, while the only-oxygen-enriched top layer was similar to the “inner layer” shown in Figs. 5 and 7.

Except the continuous film, some individual particles were also observed in or below the continuous film, as shown in Fig. 9. An Al-enriched particle was detected in the left side of the oxide film shown in Fig. 9b and might be speculated to be spinel Mg2AlO4 because it also contains abundant magnesium and oxygen elements. The existing of such Mg2AlO4 particles is responsible for the high concentration of aluminium in small areas of the observed film and the uneven distribution of aluminium, as shown in Fig. 5(c). Here it should be emphasized that, although the other part of the bottom layer of the continuous oxide film contains less aluminium than this Al-enriched particle, the Fig. 9c indicated that the amount of aluminium in this bottom layer was still non-negligible, especially when comparing with the outer layer of the film. Below the right side of the oxide film shown in Fig. 9b, a particle was detected and speculated to be MgO because it is rich in Mg and O. According to Wang’s result [56], lots of discrete MgO particles can be formed on the surface of the Mg melt by the oxidation of Mg melt and Mg vapor. The MgO particles observed in our present work may be formed due to the same reasons. While, due to the differences in experimental conditions, less Mg melt can be vapored or react with O2, thus only a few of MgO particles formed in our work. An enrichment of carbon was also found in the film, revealing that CO2 was able to react with the melt, thus forming carbon or carbides. This carbon concentration was consistent with the relatively high carbon content of the oxide film shown in Table 3 (i.e., the dark region). In the area next to the oxide film.

This cross-sectional observation of the oxide film on a test bar fracture surface (Fig. 9) further verified the schematic of the entrainment defect shown in Fig. 6(e). The entrainment defects formed in different atmospheres of SF6/CO2 and SF6/air had similar structures, but their compositions were different.

3.3. Evolution of the oxide films in the oxidation cell

The results in Section 3.1 and 3.2 have shown the structures and compositions of entrainment defects formed in AZ91 castings under cover gases of SF6/air and SF6/CO2. Different stages of the oxidation reaction may lead to the different structures and compositions of entrainment defects. Although Campbell has conjectured that an entrained gas may react with the surrounding melt, it is rarely reported that the reaction occurring between the Mg-alloy melt and entrapped cover gas. Previous researchers normally focus on the reaction between a Mg-alloy melt and the cover gas in an open environment [38,39,[46][47][48][49][50][51][52], which was different from the situation of a cover gas trapped into the melt. To further understand the formation of the entrainment defect in an AZ91 alloy, the evolution process of oxide films of the entrainment defect was further studied using an oxidation cell.

Fig. 10 (a and d) shows a surface film held for 5 min in the oxidation cell, protected by 0.5%SF6/air. There was only one single layer consisting of fluoride and oxide (MgF2 and MgO). In this surface film. Sulphur was detected in the EDS spectrum, but its amount was too small to be recognized in the element map. The structure and composition of this oxide film was similar to the single-layered films of entrainment defects shown in Fig. 4.

Fig. 10. Oxide films formed in the oxidation cell under a cover gas of 0.5%SF6/air and held at 700 °C for (a) 5 min; (b) 10 min; (c) 30 min, and (d-f) the SEM-EDS element maps (using Philips JEOL7000) corresponding to the oxide film shown in (a-c) respectively, (d) 5 min; (e) 10 min; (f) 30 min. The red points in (c and f) are the location references, denoting the boundary of the F-enriched layer in different element maps.

After a holding time of 10 min, a thin (O, S)-enriched top layer (around 700 nm) appeared upon the preliminary F-enriched film, forming a multi-layered structure, as shown in Fig. 10(b and e). The thickness of the (O, S)-enriched top layer increased with increased holding time. As shown in Fig. 10(c and f), the oxide film held for 30 min also had a multi-layered structure, but the thickness of its (O, S)-enriched top layer (around 2.5 µm) was higher than the that of the 10-min oxide film. The multi-layered oxide films shown in Fig. 10(b-c) presented a similar appearance to the films of the sandwich-like defect shown in Fig. 5.

The different structures of the oxide films shown in Fig. 10 indicated that fluorides in the cover gas would be preferentially consumed due to the reaction with the AZ91 alloy melt. After the depletion of fluorides, the residual cover gas reacted further with the liquid AZ91 alloy, forming the top (O, S)-enriched layer in the oxide film. Therefore, the different structures and compositions of entrainment defects shown in Figs. 4 and 5 may be due to an ongoing oxidation reaction between melt and entrapped cover gas.

This multi-layered structure has not been reported in previous publications concerning the protective surface film formed on a Mg-alloy melt [38,[46][47][48][49][50][51]. This may be due to the fact that previous researchers carried out their experiments with an un-limited amount of cover gas, creating a situation where the fluorides in the cover gas were not able to become depleted. Therefore, the oxide film of an entrainment defect had behaviour traits similar to the oxide films shown in Fig. 10, but different from the oxide films formed on the Mg-alloy melt surface reported in [38,[46][47][48][49][50][51].

Similar with the oxide films held in SF6/air, the oxide films formed in SF6/CO2 also had different structures with different holding times in the oxidation cell. Fig. 11(a) shows an oxide film, held on an AZ91 melt surface under a cover gas of 0.5%SF6/CO2 for 5 min. This film had a single-layered structure consisting of MgF2. The existence of MgO could not be confirmed in this film. After the holding time of 30 min, the film had a multi-layered structure; the inner layer was of a compact and uniform appearance and composed of MgF2, while the outer layer is the mixture of MgF2 and MgO. Sulphur was not detected in this film, which was different from the surface film formed in 0.5%SF6/air. Therefore, fluorides in the cover gas of 0.5%SF6/CO2 were also preferentially consumed at an early stage of the film growth process. Compared with the film formed in SF6/air, the MgO in film formed in SF6/CO2 appeared later and sulphide did not appear within 30 min. It may mean that the formation and evolution of film in SF6/air is faster than SF6/CO2. CO2 may have subsequently reacted with the melt to form MgO, while sulphur-containing compounds accumulated in the cover gas and reacted to form sulphide in very late stage (may after 30 min in oxidation cell).

The red points in (b) are the location references, denoting the boundary between the top and bottom layers in the oxide film.

4. Discussion

4.1. Evolution of entrainment defects formed in SF6/air

HSC software from Outokumpu HSC Chemistry for Windows (http://www.hsc-chemistry.net/) was used to carry out thermodynamic calculations needed to explore the reactions which might occur between the trapped gases and liquid AZ91 alloy. The solutions to the calculations suggest which products are most likely to form in the reaction process between a small amount of cover gas (i.e., the amount within a trapped bubble) and the AZ91-alloy melt.

In the trials, the pressure was set to 1 atm, and the temperature set to 700 °C. The amount of the cover gas was assumed to be 7 × 10−7 kg, with a volume of approximately 0.57 cm3 (3.14 × 10−8 kmol) for 0.5%SF6/air, and 0.35 cm3 (3.12 × 10−8 kmol) for 0.5%SF6/CO2. The amount of the AZ91 alloy melt in contact with the trapped gas was assumed to be sufficient to complete all reactions. The decomposition products of SF6 were SF5, SF4, SF3, SF2, F2, S(g), S2(g) and F(g) [57][58][59][60].

Fig. 12 shows the equilibrium diagram of the thermodynamic calculation of the reaction between the AZ91 alloy and 0.5%SF6/air. In the diagram, the reactants and products with less than 10−15 kmol have not been shown, as this was 5 orders of magnitude less than the amount of SF6 present (≈ 1.57 × 10−10 kmol) and therefore would not affect the observed process in a practical way.

Fig. 12. An equilibrium diagram for the reaction between 7e-7 kg 0.5%SF6/air and a sufficient amount of AZ91 alloy. The X axis is the amount of AZ91 alloy melt having reacted with the entrained gas, and the vertical Y-axis is the amount of the reactants and products.

This reaction process could be divided into 3 stages.

Stage 1: The formation of fluorides. the AZ91 melt preferentially reacted with SF6 and its decomposition products, producing MgF2, AlF3, and ZnF2. However, the amount of ZnF2 may have been too small to be detected practically (1.25 × 10−12 kmol of ZnF2 compared with 3 × 10−10 kmol of MgF2), which may be the reason why Zn was not detected in any the oxide films shown in Sections 3.13.3. Meanwhile, sulphur accumulated in the residual gas as SO2.

Stage 2: The formation of oxides. After the liquid AZ91 alloy had depleted all the available fluorides in the entrapped gas, the amount of AlF3 and ZnF2 quickly reduced due to a reaction with Mg. O2(g) and SO2 reacted with the AZ91 melt, forming MgO, Al2O3, MgAl2O4, ZnO, ZnSO4 and MgSO4. However, the amount of ZnO and ZnSO4 would have been too small to be found practically by EDS (e.g. 9.5 × 10−12 kmol of ZnO,1.38 × 10−14 kmol of ZnSO4, in contrast to 4.68 × 10−10 kmol of MgF2, when the amount of AZ91 on the X-axis is 2.5 × 10−9 kmol). In the experimental cases, the concentration of F in the cover gas is very low, whole the concentration f O is much higher. Therefore, the stage 1 and 2, i.e, the formation of fluoride and oxide may happen simultaneously at the beginning of the reaction, resulting in the formation of a singer-layered mixture of fluoride and oxide, as shown in Figs. 4 and 10(a). While an inner layer consisted of oxides but fluorides could form after the complete depletion of F element in the cover gas.

Stages 1- 2 theoretically verified the formation process of the multi-layered structure shown in Fig. 10.

The amount of MgAl2O4 and Al2O3 in the oxide film was of a sufficient amount to be detected, which was consistent with the oxide films shown in Fig. 4. However, the existence of aluminium could not be recognized in the oxide films grown in the oxidation cell, as shown in Fig. 10. This absence of Al may be due to the following reactions between the surface film and AZ91 alloy melt:(1)

Al2O3 + 3Mg + = 3MgO + 2Al, △G(700 °C) = -119.82 kJ/mol(2)

Mg + MgAl2O4 = MgO + Al, △G(700 °C) =-106.34 kJ/molwhich could not be simulated by the HSC software since the thermodynamic calculation was carried out under an assumption that the reactants were in full contact with each other. However, in a practical process, the AZ91 melt and the cover gas would not be able to be in contact with each other completely, due to the existence of the protective surface film.

Stage 3: The formation of Sulphide and nitride. After a holding time of 30 min, the gas-phase fluorides and oxides in the oxidation cell had become depleted, allowing the melt reaction with the residual gas, forming an additional sulphur-enriched layer upon the initial F-enriched or (F, O)-enriched surface film, thus resulting in the observed multi-layered structure shown in Fig. 10 (b and c). Besides, nitrogen reacted with the AZ91 melt until all reactions were completed. The oxide film shown in Fig. 6 may correspond to this reaction stage due to its nitride content. However, the results shows that the nitrides were not detected in the polished samples shown in Figs. 4 and 5, but only found on the test bar fracture surfaces. The nitrides may have hydrolysed during the sample preparation process, as follows [54]:(3)

Mg3N2 + 6H2O =3Mg(OH)2 + 2NH3↑(4)

AlN+ 3H2O =Al(OH)3 + NH3

In addition, Schmidt et al. [61] found that Mg3N2 and AlN could react to form ternary nitrides (Mg3AlnNn+2, n= 1, 2, 3…). HSC software did not contain the database of ternary nitrides, and it could not be added into the calculation. The oxide films in this stage may also contain ternary nitrides.

4.2. Evolution of entrainment defects formed in SF6/CO2

Fig. 13 shows the results of the thermodynamic calculation between AZ91 alloy and 0.5%SF6/CO2. This reaction processes can also be divided into three stages.

Fig. 13. An equilibrium diagram for the reaction between 7e-7 kg 0.5%SF6/CO2 and a sufficient amount of AZ91 alloy. The X axis denotes the amount of Mg alloy melt having reacted with the entrained gas, and the vertical Y-axis denotes the amounts of the reactants and products.

Stage 1: The formation of fluorides. SF6 and its decomposition products were consumed by the AZ91 melt, forming MgF2, AlF3, and ZnF2. As in the reaction of AZ91 in 0.5%SF6/air, the amount of ZnF2 was too small to be detected practically (1.51 × 10−13 kmol of ZnF2 compared with 2.67 × 10−10 kmol of MgF2). Sulphur accumulated in the residual trapped gas as S2(g) and a portion of the S2(g) reacted with CO2, to form SO2 and CO. The products in this reaction stage were consistent with the film shown in Fig. 11(a), which had a single layer structure that contained fluorides only.

Stage 2: The formation of oxides. AlF3 and ZnF2 reacted with the Mg in the AZ91 melt, forming MgF2, Al and Zn. The SO2 began to be consumed, producing oxides in the surface film and S2(g) in the cover gas. Meanwhile, the CO2 directly reacted with the AZ91 melt, forming CO, MgO, ZnO, and Al2O3. The oxide films shown in Figs. 9 and 11(b) may correspond to this reaction stage due to their oxygen-enriched layer and multi-layered structure.

The CO in the cover gas could further react with the AZ91 melt, producing C. This carbon may further react with Mg to form Mg carbides, when the temperature reduced (during solidification period) [62]. This may be the reason for the high carbon content in the oxide film shown in Figs. 89. Liang et al. [39] also reported carbon-detection in an AZ91 alloy surface film protected by SO2/CO2. The produced Al2O3 may be further combined with MgO, forming MgAl2O4 [63]. As discussed in Section 4.1, the alumina and spinel can react with Mg, causing an absence of aluminium in the surface films, as shown in Fig. 11.

Stage 3: The formation of Sulphide. the AZ91 melt began to consume S2(g) in the residual entrapped gas, forming ZnS and MgS. These reactions did not occur until the last stage of the reaction process, which could be the reason why the S-content in the defect shown Fig. 7(c) was small.

In summary, thermodynamic calculations indicate that the AZ91 melt will react with the cover gas to form fluorides firstly, then oxides and sulphides in the last. The oxide film in the different reaction stages would have different structures and compositions.

4.3. Effect of the carrier gases on consumption of the entrained gas and the reproducibility of AZ91 castings

The evolution processes of entrainment defects, formed in SF6/air and SF6/CO2, have been suggested in Sections 4.1 and 4.2. The theoretical calculations were verified with respect to the corresponding oxide films found in practical samples. The atmosphere within an entrainment defect could be efficiently consumed due to the reaction with liquid Mg-alloy, in a scenario dissimilar to the Al-alloy system (i.e., nitrogen in an entrained air bubble would not efficiently react with Al-alloy melt [64,65], however, nitrogen would be more readily consumed in liquid Mg alloys, commonly referred to as “nitrogen burning” [66]).

The reaction between the entrained gas and the surrounding liquid Mg-alloy converted the entrained gas into solid compounds (e.g. MgO) within the oxide film, thus reducing the void volume of the entrainment defect and hence probably causing a collapse of the defect (e.g., if an entrained gas of air was depleted by the surrounding liquid Mg-alloy, under an assumption that the melt temperature is 700 °C and the depth of liquid Mg-alloy is 10 cm, the total volume of the final solid products would be 0.044% of the initial volume taken by the entrapped air).

The relationship between the void volume reduction of entrainment defects and the corresponding casting properties has been widely studied in Al-alloy castings. Nyahumwa and Campbell [16] reported that the Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) process caused the entrainment defects in Al-alloy castings to collapse and their oxide surfaces forced into contact. The fatigue lives of their castings were improved after HIP. Nyahumwa and Campbell [16] also suggested a potential bonding of the double oxide films that were in contact with each other, but there was no direct evidence to support this. This binding phenomenon was further investigated by Aryafar et.al.[8], who re-melted two Al-alloy bars with oxide skins in a steel tube and then carried out a tensile strength test on the solidified sample. They found that the oxide skins of the Al-alloy bars strongly bonded with each other and became even stronger with an extension of the melt holding time, indicating a potential “healing” phenomenon due to the consumption of the entrained gas within the double oxide film structure. In addition, Raidszadeh and Griffiths [9,19] successfully reduced the negative effect of entrainment defects on the reproducibility of Al-alloy castings, by extending the melt holding time before solidification, which allowed the entrained gas to have a longer time to react with the surrounding melt.

With consideration of the previous work mentioned, the consumption of the entrained gas in Mg-alloy castings may diminish the negative effect of entrainment defects in the following two ways.

(1) Bonding phenomenon of the double oxide films. The sandwich-like structure shown in Fig. 5 and 7 indicated a potential bonding of the double oxide film structure. However, more evidence is required to quantify the increase in strength due to the bonding of the oxide films.

(2) Void volume reduction of entrainment defects. The positive effect of void-volume reduction on the quality of castings has been widely demonstrated by the HIP process [67]. As the evolution processes discussed in Section 4.14.2, the oxide films of entrainment defects can grow together due to an ongoing reaction between the entrained gas and surrounding AZ91 alloy melt. The volume of the final solid products was significant small compared with the entrained gas (i.e., 0.044% as previously mentioned).

Therefore, the consumption rate of the entrained gas (i.e., the growth rate of oxide films) may be a critical parameter for improving the quality of AZ91 alloy castings. The oxide film growth rate in the oxidization cell was accordingly further investigated.

Fig. 14 shows a comparison of the surface film growth rates in different cover gases (i.e., 0.5%SF6/air and 0.5%SF6/CO2). 15 random points on each sample were selected for film thickness measurements. The 95% confidence interval (95%CI) was computed under an assumption that the variation of the film thickness followed a Gaussian distribution. It can be seen that all the surface films formed in 0.5%SF6/air grew faster than those formed in 0.5%SF6/CO2. The different growth rates suggested that the entrained-gas consumption rate of 0.5%SF6/air was higher than that of 0.5%SF6/CO2, which was more beneficial for the consumption of the entrained gas.

Fig. 14. A comparison of the AZ91 alloy oxide film growth rates in 0.5%SF6/air and 0.5%SF6/CO2

It should be noted that, in the oxidation cell, the contact area of liquid AZ91 alloy and cover gas (i.e. the size of the crucible) was relatively small with consideration of the large volume of melt and gas. Consequently, the holding time for the oxide film growth within the oxidation cell was comparatively long (i.e., 5–30 min). However, the entrainment defects contained in a real casting are comparatively very small (i.e., a few microns size as shown in Figs. 36, and [7]), and the entrained gas is fully enclosed by the surrounding melt, creating a relatively large contact area. Hence the reaction time for cover gas and the AZ91 alloy melt may be comparatively short. In addition, the solidification time of real Mg-alloy sand castings can be a few minutes (e.g. Guo [68] reported that a Mg-alloy sand casting with 60 mm diameter required 4 min to be solidified). Therefore, it can be expected that an entrained gas trapped during an Mg-alloy melt pouring process will be readily consumed by the surrounding melt, especially for sand castings and large-size castings, where solidification times are long.

Therefore, the different cover gases (0.5%SF6/air and 0.5%SF6/CO2) associated with different consumption rates of the entrained gases may affect the reproducibility of the final castings. To verify this assumption, the AZ91 castings produced in 0.5%SF6/air and 0.5%SF6/CO2 were machined into test bars for mechanical evaluation. A Weibull analysis was carried out using both linear least square (LLS) method and non-linear least square (non-LLS) method [69].

Fig. 15(a-b) shows a traditional 2-p linearized Weibull plot of the UTS and elongation of the AZ91 alloy castings, obtained by the LLS method. The estimator used is P= (i-0.5)/N, which was suggested to cause the lowest bias among all the popular estimators [69,70]. The casting produced in SF6/air has an UTS Weibull moduli of 16.9, and an elongation Weibull moduli of 5.0. In contrast, the UTS and elongation Weibull modulus of the casting produced in SF6/CO2 are 7.7 and 2.7 respectively, suggesting that the reproducibility of the casting protected by SF6/CO2 were much lower than that produced in SF6/air.

Fig. 15. The Weibull modulus of AZ91 castings produced in different atmospheres, estimated by (a-b) the linear least square method, (c-d) the non-linear least square method, where SSR is the sum of residual squares.

In addition, the author’s previous publication [69] demonstrated a shortcoming of the linearized Weibull plots, which may cause a higher bias and incorrect R2 interruption of the Weibull estimation. A Non-LLS Weibull estimation was therefore carried out, as shown in Fig. 15 (c-d). The UTS Weibull modulus of the SF6/air casting was 20.8, while the casting produced under SF6/CO2 had a lower UTS Weibull modulus of 11.4, showing a clear difference in their reproducibility. In addition, the SF6/air elongation (El%) dataset also had a Weibull modulus (shape = 5.8) higher than the elongation dataset of SF6/CO2 (shape = 3.1). Therefore, both the LLS and Non-LLS estimations suggested that the SF6/air casting has a higher reproducibility than the SF6/CO2 casting. It supports the method that the use of air instead of CO2 contributes to a quicker consumption of the entrained gas, which may reduce the void volume within the defects. Therefore, the use of 0.5%SF6/air instead of 0.5%SF6/CO2 (which increased the consumption rate of the entrained gas) improved the reproducibility of the AZ91 castings.

However, it should be noted that not all the Mg-alloy foundries followed the casting process used in present work. The Mg-alloy melt in present work was degassed, thus reducing the effect of hydrogen on the consumption of the entrained gas (i.e., hydrogen could diffuse into the entrained gas, potentially suppressing the depletion of the entrained gas [7,71,72]). In contrast, in Mg-alloy foundries, the Mg-alloy melt is not normally degassed, since it was widely believed that there is not a ‘gas problem’ when casting magnesium and hence no significant change in tensile properties [73]. Although studies have shown the negative effect of hydrogen on the mechanical properties of Mg-alloy castings [41,42,73], a degassing process is still not very popular in Mg-alloy foundries.

Moreover, in present work, the sand mould cavity was flushed with the SF6 cover gas prior to pouring [22]. However, not all the Mg-alloy foundries flushed the mould cavity in this way. For example, the Stone Foundry Ltd (UK) used sulphur powder instead of the cover-gas flushing. The entrained gas within their castings may be SO2/air, rather than the protective gas.

Therefore, although the results in present work have shown that using air instead of CO2 improved the reproducibility of the final casting, it still requires further investigations to confirm the effect of carrier gases with respect to different industrial Mg-alloy casting processes.

7. Conclusion

Entrainment defects formed in an AZ91 alloy were observed. Their oxide films had two types of structure: single-layered and multi-layered. The multi-layered oxide film can grow together forming a sandwich-like structure in the final casting.2.

Both the experimental results and the theoretical thermodynamic calculations demonstrated that fluorides in the trapped gas were depleted prior to the consumption of sulphur. A three-stage evolution process of the double oxide film defects has been suggested. The oxide films contained different combinations of compounds, depending on the evolution stage. The defects formed in SF6/air had a similar structure to those formed in SF6/CO2, but the compositions of their oxide films were different. The oxide-film formation and evolution process of the entrainment defects were different from that of the Mg-alloy surface films previous reported (i.e., MgO formed prior to MgF2).3.

The growth rate of the oxide film was demonstrated to be greater under SF6/air than SF6/CO2, contributing to a quicker consumption of the damaging entrapped gas. The reproducibility of an AZ91 alloy casting improved when using SF6/air instead of SF6/CO2.

ABSTRACT

L-PBF(Laser Powder Bed Fusion)는 금속 적층 제조(MAM) 기술로, 기존 제조 공정에 비해 부품 설계 자유도, 조립품 통합, 부품 맞춤화 및 낮은 툴링 비용과 같은 여러 이점을 산업에 제공합니다.

전기 코일 및 열 관리 장치는 일반적으로 높은 전기 및 열 전도성 특성으로 인해 순수 구리로 제조됩니다. 따라서 순동의 L-PBF가 가능하다면 기하학적으로 최적화된 방열판과 자유형 전자코일을 제작할 수 있습니다.

그러나 L-PBF로 조밀한 순동 부품을 생산하는 것은 적외선에 대한 낮은 광 흡수율과 높은 열전도율로 인해 어렵습니다. 기존의 L-PBF 시스템에서 조밀한 구리 부품을 생산하려면 적외선 레이저의 출력을 500W 이상으로 높이거나 구리의 광흡수율이 높은 녹색 레이저를 사용해야 합니다.

적외선 레이저 출력을 높이면 후면 반사로 인해 레이저 시스템의 광학 구성 요소가 손상되고 렌즈의 열 광학 현상으로 인해 공정이 불안정해질 수 있습니다. 이 작업에서 FVM(Finite Volume Method)에 기반한 다중 물리학 중간 규모 수치 모델은 Flow-3D에서 개발되어 용융 풀 역학과 궁극적으로 부품 품질을 제어하는 ​​물리적 현상 상호 작용을 조사합니다.

녹색 레이저 열원과 적외선 레이저 열원은 기판 위의 순수 구리 분말 베드에 단일 트랙 증착을 생성하기 위해 개별적으로 사용됩니다.

용융 풀 역학에 대한 레이저 열원의 유사하지 않은 광학 흡수 특성의 영향이 탐구됩니다. 수치 모델을 검증하기 위해 단일 트랙이 구리 분말 베드에 증착되고 시뮬레이션된 용융 풀 모양과 크기가 비교되는 실험이 수행되었습니다.

녹색 레이저는 광흡수율이 높아 전도 및 키홀 모드 용융이 가능하고 적외선 레이저는 흡수율이 낮아 키홀 모드 용융만 가능하다. 레이저 파장에 대한 용융 모드의 변화는 궁극적으로 기계적, 전기적 및 열적 특성에 영향을 미치는 열 구배 및 냉각 속도에 대한 결과를 가져옵니다.

Laser Powder Bed Fusion (L-PBF) is a Metal Additive Manufacturing (MAM) technology which offers several advantages to industries such as part design freedom, consolidation of assemblies, part customization and low tooling cost over conventional manufacturing processes. Electric coils and thermal management devices are generally manufactured from pure copper due to its high electrical and thermal conductivity properties. Therefore, if L-PBF of pure copper is feasible, geometrically optimized heat sinks and free-form electromagnetic coils can be manufactured. However, producing dense pure copper parts by L-PBF is difficult due to low optical absorptivity to infrared radiation and high thermal conductivity. To produce dense copper parts in a conventional L-PBF system either the power of the infrared laser must be increased above 500W, or a green laser should be used for which copper has a high optical absorptivity. Increasing the infrared laser power can damage the optical components of the laser systems due to back reflections and create instabilities in the process due to thermal-optical phenomenon of the lenses. In this work, a multi-physics meso-scale numerical model based on Finite Volume Method (FVM) is developed in Flow-3D to investigate the physical phenomena interaction which governs the melt pool dynamics and ultimately the part quality. A green laser heat source and an infrared laser heat source are used individually to create single track deposition on pure copper powder bed above a substrate. The effect of the dissimilar optical absorptivity property of laser heat sources on the melt pool dynamics is explored. To validate the numerical model, experiments were conducted wherein single tracks are deposited on a copper powder bed and the simulated melt pool shape and size are compared. As the green laser has a high optical absorptivity, a conduction and keyhole mode melting is possible while for the infrared laser only keyhole mode melting is possible due to low absorptivity. The variation in melting modes with respect to the laser wavelength has an outcome on thermal gradient and cooling rates which ultimately affect the mechanical, electrical, and thermal properties.

Abstract

The plasma rotating electrode process (PREP) is rapidly becoming an important powder fabrication method in additive manufacturing. However, the low production rate of fine PREP powder limits the development of PREP. Herein, we investigated different factors affecting powder formation during PREP by combining experimental methods and numerical simulations. The limitation of increasing the rotation electrode speed in decreasing powder size is attributed to the increased probability of adjacent droplets recombining and the decreased tendency of granulation. The effects of additional Ar/He gas flowing on the rotational electrode on powder formation is determined through the cooling effect, the disturbance effect, and the inclined effect of the residual electrode end face simultaneously. A smaller-sized powder was obtained in the He atmosphere owing to the larger inclined angle of the residual electrode end face compared to the Ar atmosphere. Our research highlights the route for the fabrication of smaller-sized powders using PREP.

Introduction

With the development of additive manufacturing, there has been a significant increase in high-quality powder production demand [1,2]. The initial powder characteristics are closely related to the uniform powder spreading [3,4], packing density [5], and layer thickness observed during additive manufacturing [6], thus determining the mechanical properties of the additive manufactured parts [7,8]. Gas atomization (GA) [9–11], centrifugal atomization (CA) [12–15], and the plasma rotating electrode process (PREP) are three important powder fabrication methods.

Currently, GA is the dominant powder fabrication method used in additive manufacturing [16] for the fabrication of a wide range of alloys [11]. GA produces powders by impinging a liquid metal stream to droplets through a high-speed gas flow of nitrogen, argon, or helium. With relatively low energy consumption and a high fraction of fine powders, GA has become the most popular powder manufacturing technology for AM.

The entrapped gas pores are generally formed in the powder after solidification during GA, in which the molten metal is impacted by a high-speed atomization gas jet. In addition, satellites are formed in GA powder when fine particles adhere to partially molten particles.

The gas pores of GA powder result in porosity generation in the additive manufactured parts, which in turn deteriorates its mechanical properties because pores can become crack initiation sites [17]. In CA, a molten metal stream is poured directly onto an atomizer disc spinning at a high rotational speed. A thin film is formed on the surface of the disc, which breaks into small droplets due to the centrifugal force. Metal powder is obtained when these droplets solidify.

Compared with GA powder, CA powder exhibits higher sphericity, lower impurity content, fewer satellites, and narrower particle size distribution [12]. However, very high speed is required to obtain fine powder by CA. In PREP, the molten metal, melted using the plasma arc, is ejected from the rotating rod through centrifugal force. Compared with GA powder, PREP-produced powders also have higher sphericity and fewer pores and satellites [18].

For instance, PREP-fabricated Ti6Al-4 V alloy powder with a powder size below 150 μm exhibits lower porosity than gas-atomized powder [19], which decreases the porosity of additive manufactured parts. Furthermore, the process window during electron beam melting was broadened using PREP powder compared to GA powder in Inconel 718 alloy [20] owing to the higher sphericity of the PREP powder.

In summary, PREP powder exhibits many advantages and is highly recommended for powder-based additive manufacturing and direct energy deposition-type additive manufacturing. However, the low production rate of fine PREP powder limits the widespread application of PREP powder in additive manufacturing.

Although increasing the rotating speed is an effective method to decrease the powder size [21,22], the reduction in powder size becomes smaller with the increased rotating speed [23]. The occurrence of limiting effects has not been fully clarified yet.

Moreover, the powder size can be decreased by increasing the rotating electrode diameter [24]. However, these methods are quite demanding for the PREP equipment. For instance, it is costly to revise the PREP equipment to meet the demand of further increasing the rotating speed or electrode diameter.

Accordingly, more feasible methods should be developed to further decrease the PREP powder size. Another factor that influences powder formation is the melting rate [25]. It has been reported that increasing the melting rate decreases the powder size of Inconel 718 alloy [26].

In contrast, the powder size of SUS316 alloy was decreased by decreasing the plasma current within certain ranges. This was ascribed to the formation of larger-sized droplets from fluid strips with increased thickness and spatial density at higher plasma currents [27]. The powder size of NiTi alloy also decreases at lower melting rates [28]. Consequently, altering the melting rate, varied with the plasma current, is expected to regulate the PREP powder size.

Furthermore, gas flowing has a significant influence on powder formation [27,29–31]. On one hand, the disturbance effect of gas flowing promotes fluid granulation, which in turn contributes to the formation of smaller-sized powder [27]. On the other hand, the cooling effect of gas flowing facilitates the formation of large-sized powder due to increased viscosity and surface tension. However, there is a lack of systematic research on the effect of different gas flowing on powder formation during PREP.

Herein, the authors systematically studied the effects of rotating speed, electrode diameter, plasma current, and gas flowing on the formation of Ti-6Al-4 V alloy powder during PREP as additive manufactured Ti-6Al-4 V alloy exhibits great application potential [32]. Numerical simulations were conducted to explain why increasing the rotating speed is not effective in decreasing powder size when the rotation speed reaches a certain level. In addition, the different factors incited by the Ar/He gas flowing on powder formation were clarified.

Abstract

피기백 파이프라인은 2개의 파이프로 구성되어 2차 라인이 2개의 파이프 사이의 길이가 고정된 거리로 메인 파이프에 탑승합니다. 새로운 전략은 단일 흐름 라인 대신 연안 지역에서 활용됩니다.

이와 관련하여 정상 전류에서 피기백 파이프라인 아래의 세굴 효과를 조사하는 실험 및 수치 연구는 소수에 불과합니다. 따라서 본 연구에서는 수치모사 및 실험적 실험을 통해 관직경, 관간격 등 정류에 의한 세굴에 영향을 미치는 요인을 살펴보고자 합니다.

따라서 연구의 첫 번째 단계에서 단일 파이프를 설치하고 실험식의 결과와 결과를 비교하기 위해 실험실에서 테스트했습니다. 실험적 검증을 마친 후, 피기백 파이프라인도 조립하여 안정된 전류 조건에서 정련을 연구했습니다. 파이프 사이의 간격을 늘리면 최대 세굴 깊이가 감소한다는 결론이 내려졌습니다.

그러나 작은 파이프의 직경이 증가하면 최대 세굴 깊이가 커집니다. 둘째, 본 연구의 수치적 조사에 적합한 도구인 FLOW-3D 소프트웨어를 사용하여 수치해석을 수행하였습니다.

마지막으로, 수치 결과를 해당 실험 데이터와 비교했으며, 이들 사이에 비교적 좋은 일치가 달성되었습니다.

A piggyback pipeline consists of two pipes such that the secondary line rides on the main pipe with a fixed distance between two pipes in length. The novel strategy is utilized in offshore areas instead of a single flow line. In this regard, there are only a handful of experimental and numerical studies investigating the effect of scour below a piggyback pipeline under steady current. Hence, this study focuses on examining the influential factors on scouring due to steady current including the pipe diameter and the gap between pipes through numerical simulations and experimental tests. Accordingly, at the first phase of the research, a single pipe was established and tested in laboratory to compare the results with those of an empirical equation. After finishing experimental verifications, piggyback pipelines were also assembled to study the scouring under steady current conditions. It was concluded that by increasing the gap distance between the pipes, the maximum scour depth decreases; however, an increase in the small pipe’s diameter results in a larger maximum scour depth. Secondly, numerical simulations were carried out using the FLOW-3D software which was found to be a suitable tool for the numerical investigation of this study. Finally, the numerical results have been compared with the corresponding experimental data and a relatively good agreement was achieved between them.

Abstract

산사태가 발생하기 쉬운 구릉 지역 근처에서 발생하는 최근 인구 증가 및 개발은 취약성을 증가시킵니다. 기후 변화의 영향은 산사태 위험의 가능성을 더욱 높입니다. 따라서 인명 및 재산 피해를 방지하기 위해서는 불안정한 경사면 거동에 대한 적절한 관찰과 분석이 중요합니다.

산사태 흐름 경로 예측은 산사태 흐름 경로를 결정하는 데 중요하며 위험 매핑의 필수 요소입니다. 그러나 현상의 복잡한 특성과 관련 매개변수의 불확실성으로 인해 흐름 경로 예측은 어려운 작업입니다. 이 작업에서는 Kegalle 지역의 Aranayaka 지역의 주요 산사태 사고를 흐름 경로를 모델링하기 위한 사례 연구로 사용합니다.

위치에서 디지털 고도 모델을 기반으로 잠재적 소스 영역이 식별되었습니다. 확산 영역 평가는 D8 및 다중 방향 흐름 알고리즘이라는 두 가지 흐름 방향 알고리즘을 기반으로 했습니다. 이 프로토타입 모델을 사용하여 사용자는 슬라이드의 최대 너비, 런아웃 거리 및 슬립 표면적과 같은 산사태 관련 통계를 대화식으로 얻을 수 있습니다.

모델에서 얻은 결과는 실제 Aranayaka 산사태 데이터 세트와 해당 지역의 산사태 위험 지도와 비교되었습니다. D8 알고리즘을 사용하여 구현된 도구에서 생성된 산사태 흐름 경로는 65% 이상의 일치를 나타내고 다중 방향 흐름 알고리즘은 실제 흐름 경로 및 기타 관련 통계와 69% 이상의 일치를 나타냅니다.

또한, 생성된 유동 경로 방향과 예상되는 산사태 시작 지점이 실제 산사태 경계 내부에 잘 일치합니다.

Recent population growth and developments taking place close to landslides prone
hilly areas increase their vulnerability. Climate change impacts further raise the
potential of landslide hazard. Therefore, to prevent loss of lives and damage to
property, proper observation and analysis of unstable slope behavior is crucial.
Landslide flow path forecasting is important for determining a landslide flow route and
it is an essential element in hazard mapping. However, due to the complex nature of
the phenomenon and the uncertainties of associated parameters flow path prediction is
a challenging task.
In this work, the major landslide incident at Aranayaka area in Kegalle district is taken
as the case study to model the flow path. At the location, potential source areas were
identified on the basis of the Digital Elevation Model. Spreading area assessment was
based on two flow directional algorithms namely D8 and Multiple Direction Flow
Algorithm. Using this prototype model, a user can interactively get landslide specific
statistics such as the maximum width of the slide, runout distance, and slip surface area.
Results obtained by the model were compared with the actual Aranayaka landslide data
set the landslide hazard map of the area.
Landslide flow paths generated from the implemented tool using D8 algorithm shows
more than 65% agreement and Multiple Direction Flow Algorithm shows more than
69% agreement with the actual flow paths and other related statistics. Also, the
generated flow path directions and predicted possible landslide initiation points fit
inside the actual landslide boundary with good agreement.

Abstract

In this study a gating system including sprue, runner and overflows for semi-solid rheocasting of aluminum alloy was designed by means of numerical simulations with a commercial software. The effects of pouring temperature, mold temperature and injection speed on the filling process performance of semi-solid die casting were studied. Based on orthogonal test analysis, the optimal die casting process parameters were selected, which were metal pouring temperature 590 °C, mold temperature 260 °C and injection velocity 0.5 m/s. Semi-solid slurry preparation process of Swirled Enthalpy Equilibration Device (SEED) was used for die casting production experiment. Aluminum alloy semi-solid bracket components were successfully produced with the key die casting process parameters selected, which was consistent with the simulation result. The design of semi-solid gating system was further verified by observing and analyzing the microstructure of different zones of the casting. The characteristic parameters, particle size and shape factor of microstructure of the produced semi-solid casting showed that the semi-solid aluminum alloy components are of good quality.

이 연구에서 알루미늄 합금의 반고체 레오캐스팅을 위한 스프루, 러너 및 오버플로를 포함하는 게이팅 시스템은 상용 소프트웨어를 사용한 수치 시뮬레이션을 통해 설계되었습니다. 주입 온도, 금형 온도 및 사출 속도가 반고체 다이캐스팅의 충전 공정 성능에 미치는 영향을 연구했습니다. 직교 테스트 분석을 기반으로 금속 주입 온도 590°C, 금형 온도 260°C 및 사출 속도 0.5m/s인 최적의 다이 캐스팅 공정 매개변수가 선택되었습니다. Swirled Enthalpy Equilibration Device(SEED)의 반고체 슬러리 제조 공정을 다이캐스팅 생산 실험에 사용하였다. 알루미늄 합금 반고체 브래킷 구성 요소는 시뮬레이션 결과와 일치하는 주요 다이 캐스팅 공정 매개변수를 선택하여 성공적으로 생산되었습니다. 반고체 게이팅 시스템의 설계는 주조의 다른 영역의 미세 구조를 관찰하고 분석하여 추가로 검증되었습니다. 생산된 반고체 주조물의 특성 매개변수, 입자 크기 및 미세 구조의 형상 계수는 반고체 알루미늄 합금 부품의 품질이 양호함을 보여주었습니다.

Abstract

염소화는 상대적인 효율성과 저렴한 비용으로 인해 발전소 냉각 시스템에서 생물학적 오염을 제어하는​​데 선호되는 방법입니다. 해안 지역에 발전소가 있는 경우 바닷물을 사용하여 현장에서 염소를 전기화학적으로 생성할 수 있습니다. 이를 현장 전기염소화라고 합니다. 이 접근 방식은 유해한 염소화 부산물이 적고 염소를 저장할 필요가 없다는 점을 포함하여 몇 가지 장점이 있습니다. 그럼에도 불구하고, 이 전기화학적 공정은 실제로는 아직 초기 단계에 있습니다. 이 연구에서는 파일럿 규모 냉각 시스템에서 염소 붕괴를 시뮬레이션하기 위해 병렬 1차 동역학을 적용했습니다. 붕괴가 취수관을 따라 발생하기 때문에 동역학은 전산유체역학(CFD) 코드에 통합되었으며, 이후에 파이프의 염소 거동을 시뮬레이션하는데 적용되었습니다. 실험과 시뮬레이션 데이터는 강한 난류가 형성되는 조건하에서도 파이프 벽을 따라 염소 농도가 점진적인 것으로 나타났습니다. 염소가 중간보다 파이프 표면을 따라 훨씬 더 집중적으로 남아 있다는 사실은 전기 염소화를 기반으로 하는 시스템의 전체 염소 요구량을 감소시킬 수 있었습니다. 현장 전기 염소화 방식의 냉각 시스템은 직접 주입 방식에 필요한 염소 사용량의 1/3만 소비했습니다. 따라서 현장 전기염소화는 해안 지역의 발전소에서 바이오파울링 제어를 위한 비용 효율적이고 환경 친화적인 접근 방식으로 사용될 수 있다고 결론지었습니다.

Chlorination is the preferred method to control biofouling in a power plant cooling system due to its comparative effectiveness and low cost. If a power plant is located in a coastal area, chlorine can be electrochemically generated in-situ using seawater, which is called in-situ electrochlorination; this approach has several advantages including fewer harmful chlorination byproducts and no need for chlorine storage. Nonetheless, this electrochemical process is still in its infancy in practice. In this study, a parallel first-order kinetics was applied to simulate chlorine decay in a pilot-scale cooling system. Since the decay occurs along the water-intake pipe, the kinetics was incorporated into computational fluid dynamics (CFD) codes, which were subsequently applied to simulate chlorine behavior in the pipe. The experiment and the simulation data indicated that chlorine concentrations along the pipe wall were incremental, even under the condition where a strong turbulent flow was formed. The fact that chlorine remained much more concentrated along the pipe surface than in the middle allowed for the reduction of the overall chlorine demand of the system based on the electro-chlorination. The cooling system, with an in-situ electro-chlorination, consumed only 1/3 of the chlorine dose demanded by the direct injection method. Therefore, it was concluded that in-situ electro-chlorination could serve as a cost-effective and environmentally friendly approach for biofouling control at power plants on coastal areas.

ABSTRACT

L-PBF(Laser Powder Bed Fusion)는 레이저 열원을 사용하여 선택적으로 통합되는 분말 층으로 복잡한 3D 금속 부품을 만드는 금속 적층 제조(MAM) 기술입니다. 처리 영역은 수십 마이크로미터 정도이므로 L-PBF를 다중 규모 제조 공정으로 만듭니다.

기체 기공의 형성 및 성장 및 용융되지 않은 분말 영역의 생성은 다중물리 모델에 의해 예측할 수 있습니다. 또한 이러한 모델을 사용하여 용융 풀 모양 및 크기, 온도 분포, 용융 풀 유체 흐름 및 입자 크기 및 형태와 같은 미세 구조 특성을 계산할 수 있습니다.

이 작업에서는 용융, 응고, 유체 흐름, 표면 장력, 열 모세관, 증발 및 광선 추적을 통한 다중 반사를 포함하는 스테인리스 스틸 316-L에 대한 충실도 다중 물리학 중간 규모 수치 모델이 개발되었습니다. 완전한 실험 설계(DoE) 방법을 사용하는 통계 연구가 수행되었으며, 여기서 불확실한 재료 특성 및 공정 매개변수, 즉 흡수율, 반동 압력(기화) 및 레이저 빔 크기가 용융수지 모양 및 크기에 미치는 영향을 분석했습니다.

또한 용융 풀 역학에 대한 위에서 언급한 불확실한 입력 매개변수의 중요성을 강조하기 위해 흡수율이 가장 큰 영향을 미치고 레이저 빔 크기가 그 뒤를 잇는 주요 효과 플롯이 생성되었습니다. 용융 풀 크기에 대한 반동 압력의 중요성은 흡수율에 따라 달라지는 용융 풀 부피와 함께 증가합니다.

모델의 예측 정확도는 유사한 공정 매개변수로 생성된 단일 트랙 실험과 시뮬레이션의 용융 풀 모양 및 크기를 비교하여 검증됩니다.

더욱이, 열 렌즈 효과는 레이저 빔 크기를 증가시켜 수치 모델에서 고려되었으며 나중에 결과적인 용융 풀 프로파일은 모델의 견고성을 보여주기 위한 실험과 비교되었습니다.

Laser Powder Bed Fusion (L-PBF) is a Metal Additive Manufacturing (MAM) technology where a complex 3D metal part is built from powder layers, which are selectively consolidated using a laser heat source. The processing zone is in the order of a few tenths of micrometer, making L-PBF a multi-scale manufacturing process. The formation and growth of gas pores and the creation of un-melted powder zones can be predicted by multiphysics models. Also, with these models, the melt pool shape and size, temperature distribution, melt pool fluid flow and its microstructural features like grain size and morphology can be calculated. In this work, a high fidelity multi-physics meso-scale numerical model is developed for stainless steel 316-L which includes melting, solidification, fluid flow, surface tension, thermo-capillarity, evaporation and multiple reflection with ray-tracing. A statistical study using a full Design of Experiments (DoE) method was conducted, wherein the impact of uncertain material properties and process parameters namely absorptivity, recoil pressure (vaporization) and laser beam size on the melt pool shape and size was analysed. Furthermore, to emphasize on the significance of the above mentioned uncertain input parameters on the melt pool dynamics, a main effects plot was created which showed that absorptivity had the highest impact followed by laser beam size. The significance of recoil pressure on the melt pool size increases with melt pool volume which is dependent on absorptivity. The prediction accuracy of the model is validated by comparing the melt pool shape and size from the simulation with single track experiments that were produced with similar process parameters. Moreover, the effect of thermal lensing was considered in the numerical model by increasing the laser beam size and later on the resultant melt pool profile was compared with experiments to show the robustness of the model.

CONCLUSION

In this work, a high-fidelity multi-physics numerical model was developed for L-PBF using the FVM method in Flow-3D. The impact of uncertainty in the input parameters including absorptivity, recoil pressure and laser beam size on the melt pool is addressed using a DoE method. The DoE analysis shows that absorptivity has the highest impact on the melt pool. The recoil pressure and laser beam size only become significant once absorptivity is 0.45. Furthermore, the numerical model is validated by comparing the predicted melt pool shape and size with experiments conducted with similar process parameters wherein a high prediction accuracy is achieved by the model. In addition, the impact of thermal lensing on the melt pool dimensions by increasing the laser beam spot size is considered in the validated numerical model and the resultant melt pool is compared with experiments.

ABSTRACT

L-PBF(Laser Powder Bed Fusion)는 다양한 산업 분야에서 많은 관심을 받았으며, 주로 기존 제조 기술을 사용하여 만들 수 없었던 복잡한 토폴로지 최적화 구성 요소를 구현하는 잘 알려진 능력 덕분입니다. . 펄스 L-PBF(PL-PBF)에서 레이저의 시간적 프로파일은 주기 지속 시간과 듀티 주기 중 하나 또는 둘 다를 수정하여 변조할 수 있습니다. 따라서 레이저의 시간적 프로파일은 향후 적용을 위해 이 프로세스를 더 잘 제어할 수 있는 길을 열어주는 새로운 프로세스 매개변수로 간주될 수 있습니다. 따라서 이 작업에서 우리는 레이저의 시간적 프로파일을 변경하는 것이 PL-PBF 공정에서 용융 풀 조건과 트랙의 최종 모양 및 형상에 어떻게 영향을 미칠 수 있는지 조사하는 것을 목표로 합니다. 이와 관련하여 본 논문에서는 CFD(Computational Fluid Dynamics) 소프트웨어 패키지인 Flow-3D를 기반으로 하는 316-L 스테인리스강 PL-PBF 공정의 다중물리 수치 모델을 개발하고 이 모델을 사용하여 열과 유체를 시뮬레이션합니다. 다양한 펄스 모드에서 공정 과정 중 용융 풀 내부에서 발생하는 유동 조건. 따라서 고정된 레이저 듀티 사이클(50%)이 있는 레이저 주기 지속 시간이 용융 풀의 모양과 크기 및 최종 트랙 형태에 미치는 영향을 연구하기 위해 매개변수 연구가 수행됩니다. 더 긴 주기 기간에서 더 많은 재료가 더 큰 용융 풀 내에서 변위됨에 따라 용융 풀의 후류에 더 눈에 띄는 혹이 형성되며, 동시에 더 심각한 반동 압력을 받습니다. 또한 시뮬레이션에서 50% 듀티 사이클에서 1000μs에서 형성된 보다 대칭적인 용융 풀과 비교하여 400μs 사이클 주기에서 더 긴 용융 풀이 형성된다는 것이 관찰되었습니다. 풀 볼륨은 1000μs의 경우 더 큽니다. 매개변수 연구는 연속 트랙과 파손된 트랙 PL-PBF 사이의 경계를 설명하며, 여기서 연속 트랙은 항상 소량의 용융 재료를 유지함으로써 유지됩니다.

English Abstract

Laser Powder Bed Fusion (L-PBF) has attracted a lot of attention from various industrial sectors and mainly thanks to its well-proven well-known capacity of realizing complex topology-optimized components that have so far been impossible to make using conventional manufacturing techniques. In Pulsed L-PBF (PL-PBF), the laser’s temporal profile can be modulated via modifying either or both the cycle duration and the duty cycle. Thus, the laser’s temporal profile could be considered as a new process parameter that paves the way for a better control of this process for future applications. Therefore, in this work we aim to investigate how changing the laser’s temporal profile can affect the melt pool conditions and the final shape and geometry of a track in the PL-PBF process. In this respect, in this paper a multiphysics numerical model of the PL-PBF process of 316-L stainless steel is developed based on the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software package Flow-3D and the model is used to simulate the heat and fluid flow conditions occurring inside the melt pool during the course of the process at different pulsing modes. Thus, a parametric study is carried out to study the influence of the laser’s cycle duration with a fixed laser duty cycle (50 %) on the shape and size of the melt pool and the final track morphology. It is noticed that at longer cycle periods, more noticeable humps form at the wake of the melt pool as more material is displaced within bigger melt pools, which are at the same time subjected to more significant recoil pressures. It is also observed in the simulations that at 50 % duty cycle, longer melt pools form at 400 μs cycle period compared to the more symmetrical melt pools formed at 1000 μs, primarily because of shorter laser off-times in the former, even though melt pool volume is bigger for the 1000 μs case. The parameteric study illustrates the boundary between a continuous track and a broken track PL-PBF wherein the continuous track is retained by always maintaining a small volume of molten material.

In this work a CFD model of the modulated PL-PBF process of stainless steel 316-L is developed in the commercial software package Flow-3D. The model involves physics such as solidification, melting, evaporation, convection, laser-material interaction, capillarity, Marangoni effect and the recoil pressure effect. In the current study, a parametric study is carried out to understand how the change in the cycle period duration affects the melt pool’s thermo-fluid conditions during the modulated PL-PBF process. It is observed that at the pulse mode with 50 % duty cycle and 400 μs cycle period, an overlapped chain of humps form at the wake of the melt pool and at a spatial frequency of occurrence of about 78 μm. Furthermore and as expected, it is noted that the melt pool volume, the size of the hump as well as the crater size at the end of the track, increase with increase in the cycle period duration, as more material is re-deposited at the back of the melt pool and that itself is caused by more pronounced recoil pressures. Moreover, it is noticed that due to the short off-time period of the laser in the 400 μs cycle period case, there is always an amount of liquid metal left from the previous cycle, at the time the new cycle starts. This is found to be the main reason why longer and elongated melt pools form at 400 μs cycle period, compared to the bigger, shorter and more symmetrical-like melt pools forming at the 1000 μs case. In this study PL-PBF single tracks including the broken track and the continuous track examples were studied to illustrate the boundary of this transition at a given laser scan parameter setting. At higher scan speeds, it is expected that the Plateau–Rayleigh instability will compete with the pulsing behavior to change the transition boundary between a broken and continuous track, which is suggested as future work from this study.

Abstract

Using an improved Carreau constitutive model, a numerical simulation of the casting process of a type of solid propellant slurry vacuum plate casting was carried out using the Flow3D software. Through the flow process in the orifice flow channel and the combustion chamber, the flow velocity of the slurry passing through the plate flow channel was quantitatively analyzed, and the viscosity, shear rate, and leveling characteristics of the slurry in the combustion chamber were qualitatively analyzed and predicted. The pouring time, pouring quality, and flow state predicted by the numerical simulation were verified using a visual tester consisting of a vacuum plate casting system in which a pouring experiment was carried out. Studies have shown that HTPB three-component propellant slurry is a typical yielding pseudoplastic fluid. When the slurry flows through the flower plate and the airfoil, the fluid shear rate reaches its maximum value and the viscosity of the slurry decreases. The visual pouring platform was built and the experiment was controlled according to the numerically-calculated parameters, ensuring the same casting speed. The comparison between the predicted casting quality and the one obtained in the verification test resulted in an error less than 10 %. Moreover, the error between the simulated casting completion time and the process verification test result was also no more than 10 %. Last, the flow state of the slurry during the simulation was consistent with the one during the experimental test. The overall leveling of the slurry in the combustion chamber was adequate and no relatively large holes and flaws developed during the pouring process.

개선된 Carreau 구성 모델을 사용하여 FLOW-3D 소프트웨어를 사용하여 고체 추진제 슬러리 진공판 유형의 Casting Process에 대한 수치 시뮬레이션을 수행했습니다. 오리피스 유로와 연소실에서의 유동과정을 통해 판 유로를 통과하는 슬러리의 유속을 정량적으로 분석하고, 연소실에서 슬러리의 점도, 전단율, 레벨링 특성을 정성적으로 분석하하고, 예측하였습니다.

타설시간, 타설품질, 수치해석으로 예측된 ​​유동상태는 타설실험을 수행한 진공판주조시스템으로 구성된 비주얼 테스터를 이용하여 검증하였습니다.

연구에 따르면 HTPB 3성분 추진제 슬러리는 전형적인 생성 가소성 유체입니다. 슬러리가 플라워 플레이트와 에어포일을 통과할 때 유체 전단율이 최대값에 도달하고 슬러리의 점도가 감소합니다.

시각적 주입 플랫폼이 구축되었고 동일한 주조 속도를 보장하기 위해 수치적으로 계산된 매개변수에 따라 실험이 제어되었습니다. 예측된 casting 품질과 검증 테스트에서 얻은 품질을 비교한 결과 10 % 미만의 오류가 발생했습니다.

또한 모의 casting 완료시간과 공정검증시험 결과의 오차도 10 % 이하로 나타났습니다.

마지막으로 시뮬레이션 중 슬러리의 흐름 상태는 실험 테스트 시와 일치하였다. 연소실에서 슬러리의 전체 레벨링은 적절했으며 주입 과정에서 상대적으로 큰 구멍과 결함이 발생하지 않았습니다.

Multiscale Process Modeling of Residual Deformation and Defect Formation for Laser Powder Bed Fusion Additive Manufacturing

레이저 분말 베드 퓨전(L-PBF) 적층 제조(AM)는 우수한 기계적 특성으로 그물 모양에 가까운 복잡한 부품을 생산할 수 있습니다. 그러나 빌드 실패 및 다공성과 같은 결함으로 이어지는 원치 않는 잔류 응력 및 왜곡이 L-PBF의 광범위한 적용을 방해하고 있습니다.

L-PBF의 잠재력을 최대한 실현하기 위해 잔류 변형, 용융 풀 및 다공성 형성을 예측하는 다중 규모 모델링 방법론이 개발되었습니다. L-PBF의 잔류 변형 및 응력을 부품 규모에서 예측하기 위해 고유 변형 ​​방법을 기반으로 하는 다중 규모 프로세스 모델링 프레임워크가 제안됩니다.

고유한 변형 벡터는 마이크로 스케일에서 충실도가 높은 상세한 다층 프로세스 시뮬레이션에서 추출됩니다. 균일하지만 이방성인 변형은 잔류 왜곡 및 응력을 예측하기 위해 준 정적 평형 유한 요소 분석(FEA)에서 레이어별로 L-PBF 부품에 적용됩니다.

부품 규모에서의 잔류 변형 및 응력 예측 외에도 분말 규모의 다중물리 모델링을 수행하여 공정 매개변수, 예열 온도 및 스패터링 입자에 의해 유도된 용융 풀 변동 및 결함 형성을 연구합니다. 이러한 요인과 관련된 용융 풀 역학 및 다공성 형성 메커니즘은 시뮬레이션 및 실험을 통해 밝혀졌습니다.

제안된 부품 규모 잔류 응력 및 왜곡 모델을 기반으로 경로 계획 방법은 큰 잔류 변형 및 건물 파손을 방지하기 위해 주어진 형상에 대한 레이저 스캐닝 경로를 조정하기 위해 개발되었습니다.

연속 및 아일랜드 스캐닝 전략을 위한 기울기 기반 경로 계획이 공식화되고 공식화된 컴플라이언스 및 스트레스 최소화 문제에 대한 전체 감도 분석이 수행됩니다. 이 제안된 경로 계획 방법의 타당성과 효율성은 AconityONE L-PBF 시스템을 사용하여 실험적으로 입증되었습니다.

또한 기계 학습을 활용한 데이터 기반 프레임워크를 개발하여 L-PBF에 대한 부품 규모의 열 이력을 예측합니다. 본 연구에서는 실시간 열 이력 예측을 위해 CNN(Convolutional Neural Network)과 RNN(Recurrent Neural Network)을 포함하는 순차적 기계 학습 모델을 제안합니다.

유한 요소 해석과 비교하여 100배의 예측 속도 향상이 달성되어 실제 제작 프로세스보다 빠른 예측이 가능하고 실시간 온도 프로파일을 사용할 수 있습니다.

Laser powder bed fusion (L-PBF) additive manufacturing (AM) is capable of producing complex parts near net shape with good mechanical properties. However, undesired residual stress and distortion that lead to build failure and defects such as porosity are preventing broader applications of L-PBF. To realize the full potential of L-PBF, a multiscale modeling methodology is developed to predict residual deformation, melt pool, and porosity formation. To predict the residual deformation and stress in L-PBF at part-scale, a multiscale process modeling framework based on inherent strain method is proposed.

Inherent strain vectors are extracted from detailed multi-layer process simulation with high fidelity at micro-scale. Uniform but anisotropic strains are then applied to L-PBF part in a layer-by-layer fashion in a quasi-static equilibrium finite element analysis (FEA) to predict residual distortion and stress. Besides residual distortion and stress prediction at part scale, multiphysics modeling at powder scale is performed to study the melt pool variation and defect formation induced by process parameters, preheating temperature and spattering particles. Melt pool dynamics and porosity formation mechanisms associated with these factors are revealed through simulation and experiments.

Based on the proposed part-scale residual stress and distortion model, path planning method is developed to tailor the laser scanning path for a given geometry to prevent large residual deformation and building failures. Gradient based path planning for continuous and island scanning strategy is formulated and full sensitivity analysis for the formulated compliance- and stress-minimization problem is performed.

The feasibility and effectiveness of this proposed path planning method is demonstrated experimentally using the AconityONE L-PBF system. In addition, a data-driven framework utilizing machine learning is developed to predict the thermal history at part-scale for L-PBF.

In this work, a sequential machine learning model including convolutional neural network (CNN) and recurrent neural network (RNN), long shortterm memory unit, is proposed for real-time thermal history prediction. A 100x prediction speed improvement is achieved compared to the finite element analysis which makes the prediction faster than real fabrication process and real-time temperature profile available.

Abstract

LPBF(Laser Powder Bed fusion) 공정에서 작동 조건은 열 분포를 기반으로 레이저 유도 키홀 영역을 결정하는 데 필수적입니다. 얕은 구멍과 깊은 구멍으로 분류되는 이러한 영역은 LPBF 프로세스에서 확률과 결함 형성 강도를 제어합니다.

LPBF 프로세스의 핵심 구멍을 연구하고 제어하기 위해 수학적 및 CFD(전산 유체 역학) 모델이 제공됩니다. CFD의 경우 이산 요소 모델링 기법을 사용한 유체 체적 방법이 사용되었으며, 분말 베드 보이드 및 표면에 의한 레이저 빔 흡수를 포함하여 수학적 모델이 개발되었습니다.

동적 용융 풀 거동을 자세히 살펴봅니다. 실험적, CFD 시뮬레이션 및 분석적 컴퓨팅 결과 간에 정량적 비교가 수행되어 좋은 일치를 얻습니다.

LPBF에서 레이저 조사 영역 주변의 온도는 높은 내열성과 분말 입자 사이의 공기로 인해 분말층 주변에 비해 급격히 상승하여 레이저 횡방향 열파의 이동이 느려집니다. LPBF에서 키홀은 에너지 밀도에 의해 제어되는 얕고 깊은 키홀 모드로 분류될 수 있습니다. 에너지 밀도를 높이면 얕은 키홀 구멍 모드가 깊은 키홀 구멍 모드로 바뀝니다.

깊은 키홀 구멍의 에너지 밀도는 다중 반사와 키홀 구멍 내의 2차 반사 빔의 집중으로 인해 더 높아져 재료가 빠르게 기화됩니다.

깊은 키홀 구멍 모드에서는 온도 분포가 높기 때문에 액체 재료가 기화 온도에 가까우므로 얕은 키홀 구멍보다 구멍이 형성될 확률이 훨씬 높습니다. 온도가 급격히 상승하면 재료 밀도가 급격히 떨어지므로 비열과 융해 잠열로 인해 유체 부피가 증가합니다.

그 대가로 표면 장력을 낮추고 용융 풀 균일성에 영향을 미칩니다.

In the laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) process, the operating conditions are essential in determining laser-induced keyhole regimes based on the thermal distribution. These regimes, classified into shallow and deep keyholes, control the probability and defects formation intensity in the LPBF process. To study and control the keyhole in the LPBF process, mathematical and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models are presented. For CFD, the volume of fluid method with the discrete element modeling technique was used, while a mathematical model was developed by including the laser beam absorption by the powder bed voids and surface. The dynamic melt pool behavior is explored in detail. Quantitative comparisons are made among experimental, CFD simulation and analytical computing results leading to a good correspondence. In LPBF, the temperature around the laser irradiation zone rises rapidly compared to the surroundings in the powder layer due to the high thermal resistance and the air between the powder particles, resulting in a slow travel of laser transverse heat waves. In LPBF, the keyhole can be classified into shallow and deep keyhole mode, controlled by the energy density. Increasing the energy density, the shallow keyhole mode transforms into the deep keyhole mode. The energy density in a deep keyhole is higher due to the multiple reflections and concentrations of secondary reflected beams within the keyhole, causing the material to vaporize quickly. Due to an elevated temperature distribution in deep keyhole mode, the probability of pores forming is much higher than in a shallow keyhole as the liquid material is close to the vaporization temperature. When the temperature increases rapidly, the material density drops quickly, thus, raising the fluid volume due to the specific heat and fusion latent heat. In return, this lowers the surface tension and affects the melt pool uniformity.

Abstract

해안선 보호는 전 세계적인 우선 순위로 남아 있습니다. 일반적으로 해안 지역은 석회암과 같은 단단하고 비자연적이며 지속 불가능한 재료로 보호됩니다. 시공 속도와 환경 친화성을 높이고 개별 콘크리트 블록 및 보강재의 중량을 줄이기 위해 콘크리트 블록을 ACB 매트(Articulated Concrete Block Mattress)로 설계 및 구현할 수 있습니다. 이 구조물은 필수적인 부분으로 작용하며 방파제 또는 해안선 보호의 둑으로 사용할 수 있습니다. 물리적 모델은 해안 구조물의 현상을 추정하고 조사하는 핵심 도구 중 하나입니다. 그러나 한계와 장애물이 있습니다. 결과적으로, 본 연구에서는 이러한 구조물에 대한 파도의 수치 모델링을 활용하여 방파제에서의 파도 전파를 시뮬레이션하고, VOF가 있는 Flow-3D 소프트웨어를 통해 ACB Mat의 불안정성에 영향을 미치는 요인으로는 파괴파동, 옹벽의 흔들림, 파손으로 인한 인양력으로 인한 장갑의 변위 등이 있다. 본 연구의 가장 중요한 목적은 수치 Flow-3D 모델이 연안 호안의 유체역학적 매개변수를 모사하는 능력을 조사하는 것입니다. 콘크리트 블록 장갑에 대한 파동의 상승 값은 파단 매개변수( 0.5 < ξ m – 1 , 0 < 3.3 )가 증가할 때까지(R u 2 % H m 0 = 1.6) ) 최대값에 도달합니다. 따라서 차단파라미터를 증가시키고 파괴파(ξ m − 1 , 0 > 3.3 ) 유형을 붕괴파/해일파로 변경함으로써 콘크리트 블록 호안의 상대파 상승 변화 경향이 점차 증가합니다. 파동(0.5 < ξ m − 1 , 0 < 3.3 )의 경우 차단기 지수(표면 유사성 매개변수)를 높이면 상대파 런다운의 낮은 값이 크게 감소합니다. 또한, 천이영역에서는 파단파동이 쇄도파에서 붕괴/서징으로의 변화( 3.3 < ξ m – 1 , 0 < 5.0 )에서 상대적 런다운 과정이 더 적은 강도로 발생합니다.

Shoreline protection remains a global priority. Typically, coastal areas are protected by armoring them with hard, non-native, and non-sustainable materials such as limestone. To increase the execution speed and environmental friendliness and reduce the weight of individual concrete blocks and reinforcements, concrete blocks can be designed and implemented as Articulated Concrete Block Mattress (ACB Mat). These structures act as an integral part and can be used as a revetment on the breakwater body or shoreline protection. Physical models are one of the key tools for estimating and investigating the phenomena in coastal structures. However, it does have limitations and obstacles; consequently, in this study, numerical modeling of waves on these structures has been utilized to simulate wave propagation on the breakwater, via Flow-3D software with VOF. Among the factors affecting the instability of ACB Mat are breaking waves as well as the shaking of the revetment and the displacement of the armor due to the uplift force resulting from the failure. The most important purpose of the present study is to investigate the ability of numerical Flow-3D model to simulate hydrodynamic parameters in coastal revetment. The run-up values of the waves on the concrete block armoring will multiply with increasing break parameter ( 0.5 < ξ m − 1 , 0 < 3.3 ) due to the existence of plunging waves until it ( R u 2 % H m 0 = 1.6 ) reaches maximum. Hence, by increasing the breaker parameter and changing breaking waves ( ξ m − 1 , 0 > 3.3 ) type to collapsing waves/surging waves, the trend of relative wave run-up changes on concrete block revetment increases gradually. By increasing the breaker index (surf similarity parameter) in the case of plunging waves ( 0.5 < ξ m − 1 , 0 < 3.3 ), the low values on the relative wave run-down are greatly reduced. Additionally, in the transition region, the change of breaking waves from plunging waves to collapsing/surging ( 3.3 < ξ m − 1 , 0 < 5.0 ), the relative run-down process occurs with less intensity.

Hydraulic Analysis of Submerged Spillway Flows and Performance Evaluation of Chute Aerator Using CFD Modeling: A Case Study of Mangla Dam Spillway

Abstract

대용량 배출구가 있는 수중 여수로는 일반적으로 홍수 처리 및 침전물 세척의 이중 기능을 수행하기 위해 댐 정상 아래에 제공됩니다. 이 방수로를 통과하는 홍수 물은 난류 거동을 나타냅니다. 

게다가 이러한 난류의 수력학적 분석은 어려운 작업입니다. 

따라서 본 연구는 파키스탄 Mangla Dam에 건설된 수중 여수로의 수리학적 거동을 수치해석을 통해 조사하는 것을 목적으로 한다. 또한 다양한 작동 조건에서 화기의 유압 성능을 평가했습니다. 

Mangla Spillway의 흐름을 수치적으로 모델링하는 데 전산 유체 역학 코드 FLOW 3D가 사용되었습니다. 레이놀즈 평균 Navier-Stokes 방정식은 난류 흐름을 수치적으로 모델링하기 위해 FLOW 3D에서 사용됩니다. 

연구 결과에 따르면 개발된 모델은 최대 6%의 허용 오차로 흐름 매개변수를 계산하므로 수중 여수로 흐름을 시뮬레이션할 수 있습니다. 

또한, 여수로 슈트 베드 주변 모델에 의해 계산된 공기 농도는 폭기 장치에 램프를 설치한 후 6% 이상으로 상승한 3%로 개발된 모델도 침수형 폭기 장치의 성능을 평가할 수 있음을 보여주었습니다.

Submerged spillways with large capacity outlets are generally provided below the dam crest to perform the dual functions of flood disposal and sediment flushing. Flood water passing through these spillways exhibits turbulent behavior. Moreover; hydraulic analysis of such turbulent flows is a challenging task. Therefore, the present study aims to use numerical simulations to examine the hydraulic behavior of submerged spillways constructed at Mangla Dam, Pakistan. Besides, the hydraulic performance of aerator was also evaluated at different operating conditions. Computational fluid dynamics code FLOW 3D was used to numerically model the flows of Mangla Spillway. Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes equations are used in FLOW 3D to numerically model the turbulent flows. The study results indicated that the developed model can simulate the submerged spillway flows as it computed the flow parameters with an acceptable error of up to 6%. Moreover, air concentration computed by model near spillway chute bed was 3% which raised to more than 6% after the installation of ramp on aerator which showed that developed model is also capable of evaluating the performance of submerged spillway aerator.

Abstract

선택적 레이저 용융 동안 CP-Ti의 열 거동을 연구하기 위해 무작위 패킹 분말 베드 모델을 기반으로 하는 메조스코프 시뮬레이션이 설정되었습니다. 레이저와 분말의 상호 작용에 따른 용융 풀의 특성과 레이저 출력이 용융 풀의 열 거동, 유체 역학 및 표면 형태 변화에 미치는 영향을 연구했습니다.

결과는 레이저 출력이 증가함에 따라 최대 온도, 온도 변화율, 용융 풀의 수명 및 크기가 크게 향상되었음을 보여줍니다. 또한 본 연구에서는 이중궤도 하의 용융지의 특성과 열거동을 주로 연구하였다.

두 번째 트랙의 용융 풀의 최대 온도, 수명 및 길이와 너비는 첫 번째 트랙보다 더 높고 레이저 출력이 증가함에 따라 용융 풀에서 두 번째 트랙의 길이 너비 비율이 증가함을 알 수 있습니다. 더 커집니다.

A mesoscopic simulation based on random packing powder bed model was established to study the heat behavior of CP-Ti during selective laser melting. The characteristics of the molten pool under the interaction of laser and powder, and the influence of laser power on the thermal behavior, hydrodynamics and surface morphology evolution of the molten pool were studied. The results show that with the increase of laser power, the maximum temperature, temperature change rate, lifetime of molten pool and size are greatly improved. In addition, the characteristics and heat behavior of the molten pool under the double track are mainly studied in this study. It is found that the maximum temperature, lifetime, and the length and width of the molten pool of the second track are higher than those in the first, and with the increase of laser power, the length width ratio of the second track in molten pool becomes larger.

수치 시뮬레이션을 통해 오지 여수로 터널의 수리적 특성 연구의 타당성을 탐색하기 위해 황하 Xiaolangdi 수질 관리 프로젝트의 2번 오지 여수로 터널을 연구 대상으로 취한 다음 오지의 수리 특성 설계 및 점검 홍수 수준 조건에서 여수로 터널은 RNG k-ε 난류 모델을 사용하여 배출 용량, 터널 크라운 잔류 공간, 단면 유속, 압전 수두, 유동 캐비테이션 수, 제트 흐름 범위 및 1 ∶ 40의 일반 수리 모델과 결합된 세굴 구덩이 깊이, 시뮬레이션 값과 실험 값 모두 비교됩니다.

연구결과 모의실험값이 실험값과 일치하여 오지 여수로터널의 수리적 특성을 수치모사를 통해 탐색할 수 있음을 확인하였다. 여수로터널 내부의 흐름은 안정적이고 터널 크라운 잔류 공간은 개방 흐름과 완전 흐름의 교대 흐름 패턴이 없는 25% 이상입니다.

체크 홍수 수위에서 시뮬레이션 값과 유량 계수의 실험 값은 모두 설계에서보다 높으므로 배출 용량은 홍수 제어 관련 설계 요구 사항을 충족할 수 있습니다. 오지 단면과 플립 단면의 유동 캐비테이션 수는 캐비테이션 손상이 발생할 가능성이 작기 때문에 캐비테이션 침식을 줄이기 위한 적절한 적절한 조치가 채택될 필요가 있습니다.

유압 모델의 고르지 않은 표면에 부압이 발생하면 표면 구조에 관련주의를 기울일 필요가 있습니다. 연구 결과는 여수로 터널의 설계 및 건설에 대한 관련 참고 및 이론적 근거를 제공할 수 있습니다.

Abstract

An entrainment defect (also known as a double oxide film defect or bifilm) acts a void containing an entrapped gas when submerged into a light-alloy melt, thus reducing the quality and reproducibility of the final castings. Previous publications, carried out with Al-alloy castings, reported that this trapped gas could be subsequently consumed by the reaction with the surrounding melt, thus reducing the void volume and negative effect of entrainment defects. Compared with Al-alloys, the entrapped gas within Mg-alloy might be more efficiently consumed due to the relatively high reactivity of magnesium. However, research into the entrainment defects within Mg alloys has been significantly limited. In the present work, AZ91 alloy castings were produced under different carrier gas atmospheres (i.e., SF6/CO2, SF6/air). The evolution processes of the entrainment defects contained in AZ91 alloy were suggested according to the microstructure inspections and thermodynamic calculations. The defects formed in the different atmospheres have a similar sandwich-like structure, but their oxide films contained different combinations of compounds. The use of carrier gases, which were associated with different entrained-gas consumption rates, affected the reproducibility of AZ91 castings.

연행 결함(이중 산화막 결함 또는 이중막 결함이라고도 함)은 경합금 용융물에 잠길 때 갇힌 가스를 포함하는 공극으로 작용하여 최종 주물의 품질과 재현성을 저하시킵니다. Al-합금 주조로 수행된 이전 간행물에서는 이 갇힌 가스가 주변 용융물과의 반응에 의해 후속적으로 소모되어 공극 부피와 연행 결함의 부정적인 영향을 줄일 수 있다고 보고했습니다. Al-합금에 비해 마그네슘의 상대적으로 높은 반응성으로 인해 Mg-합금 내에 포집된 가스가 더 효율적으로 소모될 수 있습니다. 그러나 Mg 합금 내 연행 결함에 대한 연구는 상당히 제한적이었습니다. 현재 작업에서 AZ91 합금 주물은 다양한 캐리어 가스 분위기(즉, SF 6 /CO2 , SF 6 / 공기). AZ91 합금에 포함된 엔트레인먼트 결함의 진화 과정은 미세조직 검사 및 열역학적 계산에 따라 제안되었습니다. 서로 다른 분위기에서 형성된 결함은 유사한 샌드위치 구조를 갖지만 산화막에는 서로 다른 화합물 조합이 포함되어 있습니다. 다른 동반 가스 소비율과 관련된 운반 가스의 사용은 AZ91 주물의 재현성에 영향을 미쳤습니다.

1 . 소개

지구상에서 가장 가벼운 구조용 금속인 마그네슘은 지난 수십 년 동안 가장 매력적인 경금속 중 하나가 되었습니다. 결과적으로 마그네슘 산업은 지난 20년 동안 급속한 발전을 경험했으며 [1 , 2] , 이는 전 세계적으로 Mg 합금에 대한 수요가 크게 증가했음을 나타냅니다. 오늘날 Mg 합금의 사용은 자동차, 항공 우주, 전자 등의 분야에서 볼 수 있습니다. [3 , 4] . Mg 금속의 전 세계 소비는 특히 자동차 산업에서 앞으로 더욱 증가할 것으로 예측되었습니다. 기존 자동차와 전기 자동차 모두의 에너지 효율성 요구 사항이 설계를 경량화하도록 더욱 밀어붙이기 때문입니다 [3 , 56] .

Mg 합금에 대한 수요의 지속적인 성장은 Mg 합금 주조의 품질 및 기계적 특성 개선에 대한 광범위한 관심을 불러일으켰습니다. Mg 합금 주조 공정 동안 용융물의 표면 난류는 소량의 주변 대기를 포함하는 이중 표면 필름의 포획으로 이어질 수 있으므로 동반 결함(이중 산화막 결함 또는 이중막 결함이라고도 함)을 형성합니다. ) [7] , [8] , [9] , [10] . 무작위 크기, 수량, 방향 및 연행 결함의 배치는 주조 특성의 변화와 관련된 중요한 요인으로 널리 받아들여지고 있습니다 [7] . 또한 Peng et al. [11]AZ91 합금 용융물에 동반된 산화물 필름이 Al 8 Mn 5 입자에 대한 필터 역할을 하여 침전될 때 가두는 것을 발견했습니다 . Mackie et al. [12]는 또한 동반된 산화막이 금속간 입자를 트롤(trawl)하는 작용을 하여 입자가 클러스터링되어 매우 큰 결함을 형성할 수 있다고 제안했습니다. 금속간 화합물의 클러스터링은 비말동반 결함을 주조 특성에 더 해롭게 만들었습니다.

연행 결함에 관한 이전 연구의 대부분은 Al-합금에 대해 수행되었으며 [7 , [13] , [14] , [15] , [16] , [17] , [18] 몇 가지 잠재적인 방법이 제안되었습니다. 알루미늄 합금 주물의 품질에 대한 부정적인 영향을 줄이기 위해. Nyahumwa et al., [16] 은 연행 결함 내의 공극 체적이 열간 등방압 압축(HIP) 공정에 의해 감소될 수 있음을 보여줍니다. Campbell [7] 은 결함 내부의 동반된 가스가 주변 용융물과의 반응으로 인해 소모될 수 있다고 제안했으며, 이는 Raiszedeh와 Griffiths [19]에 의해 추가로 확인되었습니다 ..혼입 가스 소비가 Al-합금 주물의 기계적 특성에 미치는 영향은 [8 , 9]에 의해 조사되었으며 , 이는 혼입 가스의 소비가 주조 재현성의 개선을 촉진함을 시사합니다.

Al-합금 내 결함에 대한 조사와 비교하여 Mg-합금 내 연행 결함에 대한 연구는 상당히 제한적입니다. 연행 결함의 존재는 Mg 합금 주물 [20 , 21] 에서 입증 되었지만 그 거동, 진화 및 연행 가스 소비는 여전히 명확하지 않습니다.

Mg 합금 주조 공정에서 용융물은 일반적으로 마그네슘 점화를 피하기 위해 커버 가스로 보호됩니다. 따라서 모래 또는 매몰 몰드의 공동은 용융물을 붓기 전에 커버 가스로 세척해야 합니다 [22] . 따라서, Mg 합금 주물 내의 연행 가스는 공기만이 아니라 주조 공정에 사용되는 커버 가스를 포함해야 하며, 이는 구조 및 해당 연행 결함의 전개를 복잡하게 만들 수 있습니다.

SF 6 은 Mg 합금 주조 공정에 널리 사용되는 대표적인 커버 가스입니다 [23] , [24] , [25] . 이 커버 가스는 유럽의 마그네슘 합금 주조 공장에서 사용하도록 제한되었지만 상업 보고서에 따르면 이 커버는 전 세계 마그네슘 합금 산업, 특히 다음과 같은 글로벌 마그네슘 합금 생산을 지배한 국가에서 여전히 인기가 있습니다. 중국, 브라질, 인도 등 [26] . 또한, 최근 학술지 조사에서도 이 커버가스가 최근 마그네슘 합금 연구에서 널리 사용된 것으로 나타났다 [27] . SF 6 커버 가스 의 보호 메커니즘 (즉, 액체 Mg 합금과 SF 6 사이의 반응Cover gas)에 대한 연구는 여러 선행연구자들에 의해 이루어졌으나 표면 산화막의 형성과정이 아직 명확하게 밝혀지지 않았으며, 일부 발표된 결과들도 상충되고 있다. 1970년대 초 Fruehling [28] 은 SF 6 아래에 형성된 표면 피막이 주로 미량의 불화물과 함께 MgO 임을 발견 하고 SF 6 이 Mg 합금 표면 피막에 흡수 된다고 제안했습니다 . Couling [29] 은 흡수된 SF 6 이 Mg 합금 용융물과 반응하여 MgF 2 를 형성함을 추가로 확인했습니다 . 지난 20년 동안 아래에 자세히 설명된 것처럼 Mg 합금 표면 필름의 다양한 구조가 보고되었습니다.(1)

단층 필름 . Cashion [30 , 31] 은 X선 광전자 분광법(XPS)과 오제 분광법(AES)을 사용하여 표면 필름을 MgO 및 MgF 2 로 식별했습니다 . 그는 또한 필름의 구성이 두께와 전체 실험 유지 시간에 걸쳐 일정하다는 것을 발견했습니다. Cashion이 관찰한 필름은 10분에서 100분의 유지 시간으로 생성된 단층 구조를 가졌다.(2)

이중층 필름 . Aarstad et. al [32] 은 2003년에 이중층 표면 산화막을 보고했습니다. 그들은 예비 MgO 막에 부착된 잘 분포된 여러 MgF 2 입자를 관찰 하고 전체 표면적의 25-50%를 덮을 때까지 성장했습니다. 외부 MgO 필름을 통한 F의 내부 확산은 진화 과정의 원동력이었습니다. 이 이중층 구조는 Xiong의 그룹 [25 , 33] 과 Shih et al. 도 지지했습니다 . [34] .(삼)

트리플 레이어 필름 . 3층 필름과 그 진화 과정은 Pettersen [35]에 의해 2002년에 보고되었습니다 . Pettersen은 초기 표면 필름이 MgO 상이었고 F의 내부 확산에 의해 점차적으로 안정적인 MgF 2 상 으로 진화한다는 것을 발견했습니다 . 두꺼운 상부 및 하부 MgF 2 층.(4)

산화물 필름은 개별 입자로 구성 됩니다. Wang et al [36] 은 Mg-alloy 표면 필름을 SF 6 커버 가스 하에서 용융물에 교반 한 다음 응고 후 동반된 표면 필름을 검사했습니다. 그들은 동반된 표면 필름이 다른 연구자들이 보고한 보호 표면 필름처럼 계속되지 않고 개별 입자로 구성된다는 것을 발견했습니다. 젊은 산화막은 MgO 나노 크기의 산화물 입자로 구성되어 있는 반면, 오래된 산화막은 한쪽 면에 불화물과 질화물이 포함된 거친 입자(평균 크기 약 1μm)로 구성되어 있습니다.

Mg 합금 용융 표면의 산화막 또는 동반 가스는 모두 액체 Mg 합금과 커버 가스 사이의 반응으로 인해 형성되므로 Mg 합금 표면막에 대한 위에서 언급한 연구는 진화에 대한 귀중한 통찰력을 제공합니다. 연행 결함. 따라서 SF 6 커버 가스 의 보호 메커니즘 (즉, Mg-합금 표면 필름의 형성)은 해당 동반 결함의 잠재적인 복잡한 진화 과정을 나타냅니다.

그러나 Mg 합금 용융물에 표면 필름을 형성하는 것은 용융물에 잠긴 동반된 가스의 소비와 다른 상황에 있다는 점에 유의해야 합니다. 예를 들어, 앞서 언급한 연구에서 표면 성막 동안 충분한 양의 커버 가스가 담지되어 커버 가스의 고갈을 억제했습니다. 대조적으로, Mg 합금 용융물 내의 동반된 가스의 양은 유한하며, 동반된 가스는 완전히 고갈될 수 있습니다. Mirak [37] 은 3.5% SF 6 /기포를 특별히 설계된 영구 금형에서 응고되는 순수한 Mg 합금 용융물에 도입했습니다. 기포가 완전히 소모되었으며, 해당 산화막은 MgO와 MgF 2 의 혼합물임을 알 수 있었다.. 그러나 Aarstad [32] 및 Xiong [25 , 33]에 의해 관찰된 MgF 2 스팟 과 같은 핵 생성 사이트 는 관찰되지 않았습니다. Mirak은 또한 조성 분석을 기반으로 산화막에서 MgO 이전에 MgF 2 가 형성 되었다고 추측했는데 , 이는 이전 문헌에서 보고된 표면 필름 형성 과정(즉, MgF 2 이전에 형성된 MgO)과 반대 입니다. Mirak의 연구는 동반된 가스의 산화막 형성이 표면막의 산화막 형성과 상당히 다를 수 있음을 나타내었지만 산화막의 구조와 진화에 대해서는 밝히지 않았습니다.

또한 커버 가스에 캐리어 가스를 사용하는 것도 커버 가스와 액체 Mg 합금 사이의 반응에 영향을 미쳤습니다. SF 6 /air 는 용융 마그네슘의 점화를 피하기 위해 SF 6 /CO 2 운반 가스 [38] 보다 더 높은 함량의 SF 6을 필요로 하여 다른 가스 소비율을 나타냅니다. Liang et.al [39] 은 CO 2 가 캐리어 가스로 사용될 때 표면 필름에 탄소가 형성된다고 제안했는데 , 이는 SF 6 /air 에서 형성된 필름과 다릅니다 . Mg 연소 [40]에 대한 조사 에서 Mg 2 C 3 검출이 보고되었습니다.CO 2 연소 후 Mg 합금 샘플 에서 이는 Liang의 결과를 뒷받침할 뿐만 아니라 이중 산화막 결함에서 Mg 탄화물의 잠재적 형성을 나타냅니다.

여기에 보고된 작업은 다양한 커버 가스(즉, SF 6 /air 및 SF 6 /CO 2 )로 보호되는 AZ91 Mg 합금 주물에서 형성된 연행 결함의 거동과 진화에 대한 조사 입니다. 이러한 캐리어 가스는 액체 Mg 합금에 대해 다른 보호성을 가지며, 따라서 상응하는 동반 가스의 다른 소비율 및 발생 프로세스와 관련될 수 있습니다. AZ91 주물의 재현성에 대한 동반 가스 소비의 영향도 연구되었습니다.

2 . 실험

2.1 . 용융 및 주조

3kg의 AZ91 합금을 700 ± 5 °C의 연강 도가니에서 녹였습니다. AZ91 합금의 조성은 표 1 에 나타내었다 . 가열하기 전에 잉곳 표면의 모든 산화물 스케일을 기계가공으로 제거했습니다. 사용 된 커버 가스는 0.5 %이었다 SF 6 / 공기 또는 0.5 % SF 6 / CO 2 (부피. %) 다른 주물 6L / 분의 유량. 용융물은 15분 동안 0.3L/min의 유속으로 아르곤으로 가스를 제거한 다음 [41 , 42] , 모래 주형에 부었습니다. 붓기 전에 샌드 몰드 캐비티를 20분 동안 커버 가스로 플러싱했습니다 [22] . 잔류 용융물(약 1kg)이 도가니에서 응고되었습니다.

그림 1 (a)는 러너가 있는 주물의 치수를 보여줍니다. 탑 필링 시스템은 최종 주물에서 연행 결함을 생성하기 위해 의도적으로 사용되었습니다. Green과 Campbell [7 , 43] 은 탑 필링 시스템이 바텀 필링 시스템에 비해 주조 과정에서 더 많은 연행 현상(즉, 이중 필름)을 유발한다고 제안했습니다. 이 금형의 용융 흐름 시뮬레이션(Flow-3D 소프트웨어)은 연행 현상에 관한 Reilly의 모델 [44] 을 사용하여 최종 주조에 많은 양의 이중막이 포함될 것이라고 예측했습니다( 그림 1 에서 검은색 입자로 표시됨) . NS).

그림 1

수축 결함은 또한 주물의 기계적 특성과 재현성에 영향을 미칩니다. 이 연구는 주조 품질에 대한 이중 필름의 영향에 초점을 맞추었기 때문에 수축 결함이 발생하지 않도록 금형을 의도적으로 설계했습니다. ProCAST 소프트웨어를 사용한 응고 시뮬레이션은 그림 1c 와 같이 최종 주조에 수축 결함이 포함되지 않음을 보여주었습니다 . 캐스팅 건전함도 테스트바 가공 전 실시간 X-ray를 통해 확인했다.

모래 주형은 1wt를 함유한 수지 결합된 규사로 만들어졌습니다. % PEPSET 5230 수지 및 1wt. % PEPSET 5112 촉매. 모래는 또한 억제제로 작용하기 위해 2중량%의 Na 2 SiF 6 을 함유했습니다 .. 주입 온도는 700 ± 5 °C였습니다. 응고 후 러너바의 단면을 Sci-Lab Analytical Ltd로 보내 H 함량 분석(LECO 분석)을 하였고, 모든 H 함량 측정은 주조 공정 후 5일째에 실시하였다. 각각의 주물은 인장 강도 시험을 위해 클립 신장계가 있는 Zwick 1484 인장 시험기를 사용하여 40개의 시험 막대로 가공되었습니다. 파손된 시험봉의 파단면을 주사전자현미경(SEM, Philips JEOL7000)을 이용하여 가속전압 5~15kV로 조사하였다. 파손된 시험 막대, 도가니에서 응고된 잔류 Mg 합금 및 주조 러너를 동일한 SEM을 사용하여 단면화하고 연마하고 검사했습니다. CFEI Quanta 3D FEG FIB-SEM을 사용하여 FIB(집속 이온 빔 밀링 기술)에 의해 테스트 막대 파괴 표면에서 발견된 산화막의 단면을 노출했습니다. 분석에 필요한 산화막은 백금층으로 코팅하였다. 그런 다음 30kV로 가속된 갈륨 이온 빔이 산화막의 단면을 노출시키기 위해 백금 코팅 영역을 둘러싼 재료 기판을 밀링했습니다. 산화막 단면의 EDS 분석은 30kV의 가속 전압에서 FIB 장비를 사용하여 수행되었습니다.

2.2 . 산화 세포

전술 한 바와 같이, 몇몇 최근 연구자들은 마그네슘 합금의 용탕 표면에 형성된 보호막 조사 [38 , 39 , [46] , [47] , [48] , [49] , [50] , [51] , [52 ] . 이 실험 동안 사용된 커버 가스의 양이 충분하여 커버 가스에서 불화물의 고갈을 억제했습니다. 이 섹션에서 설명하는 실험은 엔트레인먼트 결함의 산화막의 진화를 연구하기 위해 커버 가스의 공급을 제한하는 밀봉된 산화 셀을 사용했습니다. 산화 셀에 포함된 커버 가스는 큰 크기의 “동반된 기포”로 간주되었습니다.

도 2에 도시된 바와 같이 , 산화셀의 본체는 내부 길이가 400mm, 내경이 32mm인 폐쇄형 연강관이었다. 수냉식 동관을 전지의 상부에 감았습니다. 튜브가 가열될 때 냉각 시스템은 상부와 하부 사이에 온도 차이를 만들어 내부 가스가 튜브 내에서 대류하도록 했습니다. 온도는 도가니 상단에 위치한 K형 열전대로 모니터링했습니다. Nieet al. [53] 은 Mg 합금 용융물의 표면 피막을 조사할 때 SF 6 커버 가스가 유지로의 강철 벽과 반응할 것이라고 제안했습니다 . 이 반응을 피하기 위해 강철 산화 전지의 내부 표면(그림 2 참조)) 및 열전대의 상반부는 질화붕소로 코팅되었습니다(Mg 합금은 질화붕소와 ​​접촉하지 않았습니다).

그림 2

실험 중에 고체 AZ91 합금 블록을 산화 셀 바닥에 위치한 마그네시아 도가니에 넣었습니다. 전지는 1L/min의 가스 유속으로 전기 저항로에서 100℃로 가열되었다. 원래의 갇힌 대기(즉, 공기)를 대체하기 위해 셀을 이 온도에서 20분 동안 유지했습니다. 그런 다음, 산화 셀을 700°C로 더 가열하여 AZ91 샘플을 녹였습니다. 그런 다음 가스 입구 및 출구 밸브가 닫혀 제한된 커버 가스 공급 하에서 산화를 위한 밀폐된 환경이 생성되었습니다. 그런 다음 산화 전지를 5분 간격으로 5분에서 30분 동안 700 ± 10°C에서 유지했습니다. 각 유지 시간이 끝날 때 세포를 물로 켄칭했습니다. 실온으로 냉각한 후 산화된 샘플을 절단하고 연마한 다음 SEM으로 검사했습니다.

3 . 결과

3.1 . SF 6 /air 에서 형성된 엔트레인먼트 결함의 구조 및 구성

0.5 % SF의 커버 가스 하에서 AZ91 주물에 형성된 유입 결함의 구조 및 조성 6 / 공기는 SEM 및 EDS에 의해 관찰되었다. 결과는 그림 3에 스케치된 엔트레인먼트 결함의 두 가지 유형이 있음을 나타냅니다 . (1) 산화막이 전통적인 단층 구조를 갖는 유형 A 결함 및 (2) 산화막이 2개 층을 갖는 유형 B 결함. 이러한 결함의 세부 사항은 다음에 소개되었습니다. 여기에서 비말동반 결함은 생물막 또는 이중 산화막으로도 알려져 있기 때문에 B형 결함의 산화막은 본 연구에서 “다층 산화막” 또는 “다층 구조”로 언급되었습니다. “이중 산화막 결함의 이중층 산화막”과 같은 혼란스러운 설명을 피하기 위해.

그림 3

그림 4 (ab)는 약 0.4μm 두께의 조밀한 단일층 산화막을 갖는 Type A 결함을 보여줍니다. 이 필름에서 산소, 불소, 마그네슘 및 알루미늄이 검출되었습니다( 그림 4c). 산화막은 마그네슘과 알루미늄의 산화물과 불화물의 혼합물로 추측됩니다. 불소의 검출은 동반된 커버 가스가 이 결함의 형성에 포함되어 있음을 보여주었습니다. 즉, Fig. 4 (a)에 나타난 기공 은 수축결함이나 수소기공도가 아니라 연행결함이었다. 알루미늄의 검출은 Xiong과 Wang의 이전 연구 [47 , 48] 와 다르며 , SF 6으로 보호된 AZ91 용융물의 표면 필름에 알루미늄이 포함되어 있지 않음을 보여주었습니다.커버 가스. 유황은 원소 맵에서 명확하게 인식할 수 없었지만 해당 ESD 스펙트럼에서 S-피크가 있었습니다.

그림 4

도 5 (ab)는 다층 산화막을 갖는 Type B 엔트레인먼트 결함을 나타낸다. 산화막의 조밀한 외부 층은 불소와 산소가 풍부하지만( 그림 5c) 상대적으로 다공성인 내부 층은 산소만 풍부하고(즉, 불소가 부족) 부분적으로 함께 성장하여 샌드위치 모양을 형성합니다. 구조. 따라서 외층은 불화물과 산화물의 혼합물이며 내층은 주로 산화물로 추정된다. 황은 EDX 스펙트럼에서만 인식될 수 있었고 요소 맵에서 명확하게 식별할 수 없었습니다. 이는 커버 가스의 작은 S 함량(즉, SF 6 의 0.5% 부피 함량 때문일 수 있음)커버 가스). 이 산화막에서는 이 산화막의 외층에 알루미늄이 포함되어 있지만 내층에서는 명확하게 검출할 수 없었다. 또한 Al의 분포가 고르지 않은 것으로 보입니다. 결함의 우측에는 필름에 알루미늄이 존재하지만 그 농도는 매트릭스보다 높은 것으로 식별할 수 없음을 알 수 있다. 그러나 결함의 왼쪽에는 알루미늄 농도가 훨씬 높은 작은 영역이 있습니다. 이러한 알루미늄의 불균일한 분포는 다른 결함(아래 참조)에서도 관찰되었으며, 이는 필름 내부 또는 아래에 일부 산화물 입자가 형성된 결과입니다.

무화과 도 4 및 5 는 SF 6 /air 의 커버 가스 하에 주조된 AZ91 합금 샘플에서 형성된 연행 결함의 횡단면 관찰을 나타낸다 . 2차원 단면에서 관찰된 수치만으로 연행 결함을 특성화하는 것만으로는 충분하지 않습니다. 더 많은 이해를 돕기 위해 테스트 바의 파단면을 관찰하여 엔트레인먼트 결함(즉, 산화막)의 표면을 더 연구했습니다.

Fig. 6 (a)는 SF 6 /air 에서 생산된 AZ91 합금 인장시험봉의 파단면을 보여준다 . 파단면의 양쪽에서 대칭적인 어두운 영역을 볼 수 있습니다. 그림 6 (b)는 어두운 영역과 밝은 영역 사이의 경계를 보여줍니다. 밝은 영역은 들쭉날쭉하고 부서진 특징으로 구성되어 있는 반면, 어두운 영역의 표면은 비교적 매끄럽고 평평했습니다. 또한 EDS 결과( Fig. 6 c-d 및 Table 2) 불소, 산소, 황 및 질소는 어두운 영역에서만 검출되었으며, 이는 어두운 영역이 용융물에 동반된 표면 보호 필름임을 나타냅니다. 따라서 어두운 영역은 대칭적인 특성을 고려할 때 연행 결함이라고 제안할 수 있습니다. Al-합금 주조물의 파단면에서 유사한 결함이 이전에 보고되었습니다 [7] . 질화물은 테스트 바 파단면의 산화막에서만 발견되었지만 그림 1과 그림 4에 표시된 단면 샘플에서는 검출되지 않았습니다 4 및 5 . 근본적인 이유는 이러한 샘플에 포함된 질화물이 샘플 연마 과정에서 가수분해되었을 수 있기 때문입니다 [54] .

도 1 및 도 2에 도시된 결함의 단면 관찰과 함께 도 4 및 도 5 를 참조하면, 인장 시험봉에 포함된 연행 결함의 구조를 도 6 (e) 와 같이 스케치하였다 . 결함에는 산화막으로 둘러싸인 동반된 가스가 포함되어 있어 테스트 바 내부에 보이드 섹션이 생성되었습니다. 파괴 과정에서 결함에 인장력이 가해지면 균열이 가장 약한 경로를 따라 전파되기 때문에 보이드 섹션에서 균열이 시작되어 연행 결함을 따라 전파됩니다 [55] . 따라서 최종적으로 시험봉이 파단되었을 때 Fig. 6 (a) 와 같이 시험봉의 양 파단면에 연행결함의 산화피막이 나타났다 .

3.2 . SF 6 /CO 2 에 형성된 연행 결함의 구조 및 조성

SF 6 /air 에서 형성된 엔트레인먼트 결함과 유사하게, 0.5% SF 6 /CO 2 의 커버 가스 아래에서 형성된 결함 도 두 가지 유형의 산화막(즉, 단층 및 다층 유형)을 가졌다. 도 7 (a)는 다층 산화막을 포함하는 엔트레인먼트 결함의 예를 도시한다. 결함에 대한 확대 관찰( 그림 7b )은 산화막의 내부 층이 함께 성장하여 SF 6 /air 의 분위기에서 형성된 결함과 유사한 샌드위치 같은 구조를 나타냄을 보여줍니다 ( 그림 7b). 5 나 ). EDS 스펙트럼( 그림 7c) 이 샌드위치형 구조의 접합부(내층)는 주로 산화마그네슘을 함유하고 있음을 보여주었다. 이 EDS 스펙트럼에서는 불소, 황, 알루미늄의 피크가 확인되었으나 그 양은 상대적으로 적었다. 대조적으로, 산화막의 외부 층은 조밀하고 불화물과 산화물의 혼합물로 구성되어 있습니다( 그림 7d-e).

Fig. 8 (a)는 0.5%SF 6 /CO 2 분위기에서 제작된 AZ91 합금 인장시험봉의 파단면의 연행결함을 보여준다 . 상응하는 EDS 결과(표 3)는 산화막이 불화물과 산화물을 함유함을 보여주었다. 황과 질소는 검출되지 않았습니다. 게다가, 확대 관찰(  8b)은 산화막 표면에 반점을 나타내었다. 반점의 직경은 수백 나노미터에서 수 마이크론 미터까지 다양했습니다.

그림 8

산화막의 구조와 조성을 보다 명확하게 나타내기 위해 테스트 바 파단면의 산화막 단면을 FIB 기법을 사용하여 현장에서 노출시켰다( 그림 9 ). 도 9a에 도시된 바와 같이 , 백금 코팅층과 Mg-Al 합금 기재 사이에 연속적인 산화피막이 발견되었다. 그림 9 (bc)는 다층 구조( 그림 9c 에서 빨간색 상자로 표시)를 나타내는 산화막에 대한 확대 관찰을 보여줍니다 . 바닥층은 불소와 산소가 풍부하고 불소와 산화물의 혼합물이어야 합니다 . 5 와 7, 유일한 산소가 풍부한 최상층은 도 1 및 도 2에 도시 된 “내층”과 유사하였다 5 및 7 .

그림 9

연속 필름을 제외하고 도 9 에 도시된 바와 같이 연속 필름 내부 또는 하부에서도 일부 개별 입자가 관찰되었다 . 그림 9( b) 의 산화막 좌측에서 Al이 풍부한 입자가 검출되었으며, 마그네슘과 산소 원소도 풍부하게 함유하고 있어 스피넬 Mg 2 AlO 4 로 추측할 수 있다 . 이러한 Mg 2 AlO 4 입자의 존재는 Fig. 5 와 같이 관찰된 필름의 작은 영역에 높은 알루미늄 농도와 알루미늄의 불균일한 분포의 원인이 된다 .(씨). 여기서 강조되어야 할 것은 연속 산화막의 바닥층의 다른 부분이 이 Al이 풍부한 입자보다 적은 양의 알루미늄을 함유하고 있지만, 그림 9c는 이 바닥층의 알루미늄 양이 여전히 무시할 수 없는 수준임을 나타냅니다 . , 특히 필름의 외층과 비교할 때. 도 9b에 도시된 산화막의 우측 아래에서 입자가 검출되어 Mg와 O가 풍부하여 MgO인 것으로 추측되었다. Wang의 결과에 따르면 [56], Mg 용융물과 Mg 증기의 산화에 의해 Mg 용융물의 표면에 많은 이산 MgO 입자가 형성될 수 있다. 우리의 현재 연구에서 관찰된 MgO 입자는 같은 이유로 인해 형성될 수 있습니다. 실험 조건의 차이로 인해 더 적은 Mg 용융물이 기화되거나 O2와 반응할 수 있으므로 우리 작업에서 형성되는 MgO 입자는 소수에 불과합니다. 또한 필름에서 풍부한 탄소가 발견되어 CO 2 가 용융물과 반응하여 탄소 또는 탄화물을 형성할 수 있음을 보여줍니다 . 이 탄소 농도는 표 3에 나타낸 산화막의 상대적으로 높은 탄소 함량 (즉, 어두운 영역) 과 일치하였다 . 산화막 옆 영역.

테스트 바 파단면( 도 9 ) 에서 산화막의 이 단면 관찰은 도 6 (e)에 도시된 엔트레인먼트 결함의 개략도를 추가로 확인했다 . SF 6 /CO 2 와 SF 6 /air 의 서로 다른 분위기에서 형성된 엔트레인먼트 결함 은 유사한 구조를 가졌지만 그 조성은 달랐다.

3.3 . 산화 전지에서 산화막의 진화

섹션 3.1 및 3.2 의 결과 는 SF 6 /air 및 SF 6 /CO 2 의 커버 가스 아래에서 AZ91 주조에서 형성된 연행 결함의 구조 및 구성을 보여줍니다 . 산화 반응의 다른 단계는 연행 결함의 다른 구조와 조성으로 이어질 수 있습니다. Campbell은 동반된 가스가 주변 용융물과 반응할 수 있다고 추측했지만 Mg 합금 용융물과 포획된 커버 가스 사이에 반응이 발생했다는 보고는 거의 없습니다. 이전 연구자들은 일반적으로 개방된 환경에서 Mg 합금 용융물과 커버 가스 사이의 반응에 초점을 맞췄습니다 [38 , 39 , [46] , [47][48] , [49] , [50] , [51] , [52] , 이는 용융물에 갇힌 커버 가스의 상황과 다릅니다. AZ91 합금에서 엔트레인먼트 결함의 형성을 더 이해하기 위해 엔트레인먼트 결함의 산화막의 진화 과정을 산화 셀을 사용하여 추가로 연구했습니다.

.도 10 (a 및 d) 0.5 % 방송 SF 보호 산화 셀에서 5 분 동안 유지 된 표면 막 (6) / 공기. 불화물과 산화물(MgF 2 와 MgO) 로 이루어진 단 하나의 층이 있었습니다 . 이 표면 필름에서. 황은 EDS 스펙트럼에서 검출되었지만 그 양이 너무 적어 원소 맵에서 인식되지 않았습니다. 이 산화막의 구조 및 조성은 도 4 에 나타낸 엔트레인먼트 결함의 단층막과 유사하였다 .

그림 10

10분의 유지 시간 후, 얇은 (O,S)가 풍부한 상부층(약 700nm)이 예비 F-농축 필름에 나타나 그림 10 (b 및 e) 에서와 같이 다층 구조를 형성했습니다 . ). (O, S)가 풍부한 최상층의 두께는 유지 시간이 증가함에 따라 증가했습니다. Fig. 10 (c, f) 에서 보는 바와 같이 30분간 유지한 산화막도 다층구조를 가지고 있으나 (O,S)가 풍부한 최상층(약 2.5μm)의 두께가 10분 산화막의 그것. 도 10 (bc) 에 도시 된 다층 산화막 은 도 5에 도시된 샌드위치형 결함의 막과 유사한 외관을 나타냈다 .

도 10에 도시된 산화막의 상이한 구조는 커버 가스의 불화물이 AZ91 합금 용융물과의 반응으로 인해 우선적으로 소모될 것임을 나타내었다. 불화물이 고갈된 후, 잔류 커버 가스는 액체 AZ91 합금과 추가로 반응하여 산화막에 상부 (O, S)가 풍부한 층을 형성했습니다. 따라서 도 1 및 도 3에 도시된 연행 결함의 상이한 구조 및 조성 4 와 5 는 용융물과 갇힌 커버 가스 사이의 진행 중인 산화 반응 때문일 수 있습니다.

이 다층 구조는 Mg 합금 용융물에 형성된 보호 표면 필름에 관한 이전 간행물 [38 , [46] , [47] , [48] , [49] , [50] , [51] 에서 보고되지 않았습니다 . . 이는 이전 연구원들이 무제한의 커버 가스로 실험을 수행했기 때문에 커버 가스의 불화물이 고갈되지 않는 상황을 만들었기 때문일 수 있습니다. 따라서 엔트레인먼트 결함의 산화피막은 도 10에 도시된 산화피막과 유사한 거동특성을 가지나 [38 ,[46] , [47] , [48] , [49] , [50] , [51] .

SF 유지 산화막와 마찬가지로 6 / 공기, SF에 형성된 산화물 막 (6) / CO 2는 또한 세포 산화 다른 유지 시간과 다른 구조를 가지고 있었다. .도 11 (a)는 AZ91 개최 산화막, 0.5 %의 커버 가스 하에서 SF 표면 용융 도시 6 / CO 2, 5 분. 이 필름은 MgF 2 로 이루어진 단층 구조를 가졌다 . 이 영화에서는 MgO의 존재를 확인할 수 없었다. 30분의 유지 시간 후, 필름은 다층 구조를 가졌다; 내부 층은 조밀하고 균일한 외관을 가지며 MgF 2 로 구성 되고 외부 층은 MgF 2 혼합물및 MgO. 0.5%SF 6 /air 에서 형성된 표면막과 다른 이 막에서는 황이 검출되지 않았다 . 따라서, 0.5%SF 6 /CO 2 의 커버 가스 내의 불화물 도 막 성장 과정의 초기 단계에서 우선적으로 소모되었다. SF 6 /air 에서 형성된 막과 비교하여 SF 6 /CO 2 에서 형성된 막에서 MgO 는 나중에 나타났고 황화물은 30분 이내에 나타나지 않았다. 이는 SF 6 /air 에서 필름의 형성과 진화 가 SF 6 /CO 2 보다 빠르다 는 것을 의미할 수 있습니다 . CO 2 후속적으로 용융물과 반응하여 MgO를 형성하는 반면, 황 함유 화합물은 커버 가스에 축적되어 반응하여 매우 늦은 단계에서 황화물을 형성할 수 있습니다(산화 셀에서 30분 후).

Outokumpu HSC Chemistry for Windows( http://www.hsc-chemistry.net/ )의 HSC 소프트웨어를 사용하여 갇힌 기체와 액체 AZ91 합금 사이에서 발생할 수 있는 반응을 탐색하는 데 필요한 열역학 계산을 수행했습니다. 계산에 대한 솔루션은 소량의 커버 가스(즉, 갇힌 기포 내의 양)와 AZ91 합금 용융물 사이의 반응 과정에서 어떤 생성물이 가장 형성될 가능성이 있는지 제안합니다.

실험에서 압력은 1기압으로, 온도는 700°C로 설정했습니다. 커버 가스의 사용량은 7 × 10으로 가정 하였다 -7  약 0.57 cm의 양으로 kg 3 (3.14 × 10 -6  0.5 % SF위한 kmol) 6 / 공기, 0.35 cm (3) (3.12 × 10 – 8  kmol) 0.5%SF 6 /CO 2 . 포획된 가스와 접촉하는 AZ91 합금 용융물의 양은 모든 반응을 완료하기에 충분한 것으로 가정되었습니다. SF 6 의 분해 생성물 은 SF 5 , SF 4 , SF 3 , SF 2 , F 2 , S(g), S 2(g) 및 F(g) [57] , [58] , [59] , [60] .

그림 12 는 AZ91 합금과 0.5%SF 6 /air 사이의 반응에 대한 열역학적 계산의 평형 다이어그램을 보여줍니다 . 다이어그램에서 10 -15  kmol 미만의 반응물 및 생성물은 표시되지 않았습니다. 이는 존재 하는 SF 6 의 양 (≈ 1.57 × 10 -10  kmol) 보다 5배 적 으므로 영향을 미치지 않습니다. 실제적인 방법으로 과정을 관찰했습니다.

그림 12

이 반응 과정은 3단계로 나눌 수 있다.

1단계 : 불화물의 형성. AZ91 용융물은 SF 6 및 그 분해 생성물과 우선적으로 반응하여 MgF 2 , AlF 3 및 ZnF 2 를 생성 합니다. 그러나 ZnF 2 의 양 이 너무 적어서 실제적으로 검출되지  않았을 수 있습니다(  MgF 2 의 3 × 10 -10 kmol에 비해 ZnF 2 1.25 × 10 -12 kmol ). 섹션 3.1 – 3.3에 표시된 모든 산화막 . 한편, 잔류 가스에 황이 SO 2 로 축적되었다 .

2단계 : 산화물의 형성. 액체 AZ91 합금이 포획된 가스에서 사용 가능한 모든 불화물을 고갈시킨 후, Mg와의 반응으로 인해 AlF 3 및 ZnF 2 의 양이 빠르게 감소했습니다. O 2 (g) 및 SO 2 는 AZ91 용융물과 반응하여 MgO, Al 2 O 3 , MgAl 2 O 4 , ZnO, ZnSO 4 및 MgSO 4 를 형성 합니다. 그러나 ZnO 및 ZnSO 4 의 양은 EDS에 의해 실제로 발견되기에는 너무 적었을 것입니다(예: 9.5 × 10 -12  kmol의 ZnO, 1.38 × 10 -14  kmol의 ZnSO 4 , 대조적으로 4.68 × 10−10  kmol의 MgF 2 , X 축의 AZ91 양 이 2.5 × 10 -9  kmol일 때). 실험 사례에서 커버 가스의 F 농도는 매우 낮고 전체 농도 f O는 훨씬 높습니다. 따라서 1단계와 2단계, 즉 불화물과 산화물의 형성은 반응 초기에 동시에 일어나 그림 1과 2와 같이 불화물과 산화물의 가수층 혼합물이 형성될 수 있다 . 4 및 10 (a). 내부 층은 산화물로 구성되어 있지만 불화물은 커버 가스에서 F 원소가 완전히 고갈된 후에 형성될 수 있습니다.

단계 1-2는 도 10 에 도시 된 다층 구조의 형성 과정을 이론적으로 검증하였다 .

산화막 내의 MgAl 2 O 4 및 Al 2 O 3 의 양은 도 4에 도시된 산화막과 일치하는 검출하기에 충분한 양이었다 . 그러나, 도 10 에 도시된 바와 같이, 산화셀에서 성장된 산화막에서는 알루미늄의 존재를 인식할 수 없었다 . 이러한 Al의 부재는 표면 필름과 AZ91 합금 용융물 사이의 다음 반응으로 인한 것일 수 있습니다.(1)

Al 2 O 3  + 3Mg + = 3MgO + 2Al, △G(700°C) = -119.82 kJ/mol(2)

Mg + MgAl 2 O 4  = MgO + Al, △G(700°C) = -106.34 kJ/mol이는 반응물이 서로 완전히 접촉한다는 가정 하에 열역학적 계산이 수행되었기 때문에 HSC 소프트웨어로 시뮬레이션할 수 없었습니다. 그러나 실제 공정에서 AZ91 용융물과 커버 가스는 보호 표면 필름의 존재로 인해 서로 완전히 접촉할 수 없습니다.

3단계 : 황화물과 질화물의 형성. 30분의 유지 시간 후, 산화 셀의 기상 불화물 및 산화물이 고갈되어 잔류 가스와 용융 반응을 허용하여 초기 F-농축 또는 (F, O )이 풍부한 표면 필름, 따라서 그림 10 (b 및 c)에 표시된 관찰된 다층 구조를 생성합니다 . 게다가, 질소는 모든 반응이 완료될 때까지 AZ91 용융물과 반응했습니다. 도 6 에 도시 된 산화막 은 질화물 함량으로 인해 이 반응 단계에 해당할 수 있다. 그러나, 그 결과는 도 1 및 도 5에 도시 된 연마된 샘플에서 질화물이 검출되지 않음을 보여준다. 4 와 5, 그러나 테스트 바 파단면에서만 발견됩니다. 질화물은 다음과 같이 샘플 준비 과정에서 가수분해될 수 있습니다 [54] .(삼)

Mg 3 N 2  + 6H 2 O = 3Mg(OH) 2  + 2NH 3 ↑(4)

AlN+ 3H 2 O = Al(OH) 3  + NH 3 ↑

또한 Schmidt et al. [61] 은 Mg 3 N 2 와 AlN이 반응하여 3원 질화물(Mg 3 Al n N n+2, n=1, 2, 3…) 을 형성할 수 있음을 발견했습니다 . HSC 소프트웨어에는 삼원 질화물 데이터베이스가 포함되어 있지 않아 계산에 추가할 수 없습니다. 이 단계의 산화막은 또한 삼원 질화물을 포함할 수 있습니다.

4.2 . SF 6 /CO 2 에서 형성된 연행 결함의 진화

도 13 은 AZ91 합금과 0.5%SF 6 /CO 2 사이의 열역학적 계산 결과를 보여준다 . 이 반응 과정도 세 단계로 나눌 수 있습니다.

그림 13

1단계 : 불화물의 형성. SF 6 및 그 분해 생성물은 AZ91 용융물에 의해 소비되어 MgF 2 , AlF 3 및 ZnF 2 를 형성했습니다 . 0.5% SF 6 /air 에서 AZ91의 반응에서와 같이 ZnF 2 의 양 이 너무 작아서 실제적으로 감지되지  않았습니다( 2.67 x 10 -10  kmol의 MgF 2 에 비해 ZnF 2 1.51 x 10 -13 kmol ). S와 같은 잔류 가스 트랩에 축적 유황 2 (g) 및 (S)의 일부분 (2) (g)가 CO와 반응하여 2 SO 형성하는 2및 CO. 이 반응 단계의 생성물은 도 11 (a)에 도시된 필름과 일치하며 , 이는 불화물만을 함유하는 단일 층 구조를 갖는다.

2단계 : 산화물의 형성. ALF 3 및 ZnF 2 MgF로 형성 용융 AZ91 마그네슘의 반응 2 , Al 및 Zn으로한다. SO 2 는 소모되기 시작하여 표면 필름에 산화물을 생성 하고 커버 가스에 S 2 (g)를 생성했습니다. 한편, CO 2 는 AZ91 용융물과 직접 반응하여 CO, MgO, ZnO 및 Al 2 O 3 를 형성 합니다. 도 1에 도시 된 산화막 9 및 11 (b)는 산소가 풍부한 층과 다층 구조로 인해 이 반응 단계에 해당할 수 있습니다.

커버 가스의 CO는 AZ91 용융물과 추가로 반응하여 C를 생성할 수 있습니다. 이 탄소는 온도가 감소할 때(응고 기간 동안) Mg와 추가로 반응하여 Mg 탄화물을 형성할 수 있습니다 [62] . 이것은 도 4에 도시된 산화막의 탄소 함량이 높은 이유일 수 있다 8 – 9 . Liang et al. [39] 또한 SO 2 /CO 2 로 보호된 AZ91 합금 표면 필름에서 탄소 검출을 보고했습니다 . 생성된 Al 2 O 3 는 MgO와 더 결합하여 MgAl 2 O [63]를 형성할 수 있습니다 . 섹션 4.1 에서 논의된 바와 같이, 알루미나 및 스피넬은 도 11 에 도시된 바와 같이 표면 필름에 알루미늄 부재를 야기하는 Mg와 반응할 수 있다 .

3단계 : 황화물의 형성. AZ91은 용융물 S 소비하기 시작 2 인 ZnS와 MGS 형성 갇힌 잔류 가스 (g)를. 이러한 반응은 반응 과정의 마지막 단계까지 일어나지 않았으며, 이는 Fig. 7 (c)에 나타난 결함의 S-함량 이 적은 이유일 수 있다 .

요약하면, 열역학적 계산은 AZ91 용융물이 커버 가스와 반응하여 먼저 불화물을 형성한 다음 마지막에 산화물과 황화물을 형성할 것임을 나타냅니다. 다른 반응 단계에서 산화막은 다른 구조와 조성을 가질 것입니다.

4.3 . 운반 가스가 동반 가스 소비 및 AZ91 주물의 재현성에 미치는 영향

SF 6 /air 및 SF 6 /CO 2 에서 형성된 연행 결함의 진화 과정은 4.1절 과 4.2  에서 제안되었습니다 . 이론적인 계산은 실제 샘플에서 발견되는 해당 산화막과 관련하여 검증되었습니다. 연행 결함 내의 대기는 Al-합금 시스템과 다른 시나리오에서 액체 Mg-합금과의 반응으로 인해 효율적으로 소모될 수 있습니다(즉, 연행된 기포의 질소가 Al-합금 용융물과 효율적으로 반응하지 않을 것입니다 [64 , 65] 그러나 일반적으로 “질소 연소”라고 하는 액체 Mg 합금에서 질소가 더 쉽게 소모될 것입니다 [66] ).

동반된 가스와 주변 액체 Mg-합금 사이의 반응은 동반된 가스를 산화막 내에서 고체 화합물(예: MgO)로 전환하여 동반 결함의 공극 부피를 감소시켜 결함(예: 공기의 동반된 가스가 주변의 액체 Mg 합금에 의해 고갈되면 용융 온도가 700 °C이고 액체 Mg 합금의 깊이가 10 cm라고 가정할 때 최종 고체 제품의 총 부피는 0.044가 됩니다. 갇힌 공기가 취한 초기 부피의 %).

연행 결함의 보이드 부피 감소와 해당 주조 특성 사이의 관계는 알루미늄 합금 주조에서 널리 연구되었습니다. Nyahumwa와 Campbell [16] 은 HIP(Hot Isostatic Pressing) 공정이 Al-합금 주물의 연행 결함이 붕괴되고 산화물 표면이 접촉하게 되었다고 보고했습니다. 주물의 피로 수명은 HIP 이후 개선되었습니다. Nyahumwa와 Campbell [16] 도 서로 접촉하고 있는 이중 산화막의 잠재적인 결합을 제안했지만 이를 뒷받침하는 직접적인 증거는 없었습니다. 이 결합 현상은 Aryafar et.al에 의해 추가로 조사되었습니다. [8], 그는 강철 튜브에서 산화물 스킨이 있는 두 개의 Al-합금 막대를 다시 녹인 다음 응고된 샘플에 대해 인장 강도 테스트를 수행했습니다. 그들은 Al-합금 봉의 산화물 스킨이 서로 강하게 결합되어 용융 유지 시간이 연장됨에 따라 더욱 강해짐을 발견했으며, 이는 이중 산화막 내 동반된 가스의 소비로 인한 잠재적인 “치유” 현상을 나타냅니다. 구조. 또한 Raidszadeh와 Griffiths [9 , 19] 는 연행 가스가 반응하는 데 더 긴 시간을 갖도록 함으로써 응고 전 용융 유지 시간을 연장함으로써 Al-합금 주물의 재현성에 대한 연행 결함의 부정적인 영향을 성공적으로 줄였습니다. 주변이 녹습니다.

앞서 언급한 연구를 고려할 때, Mg 합금 주물에서 혼입 가스의 소비는 다음 두 가지 방식으로 혼입 결함의 부정적인 영향을 감소시킬 수 있습니다.

(1) 이중 산화막의 결합 현상 . 도 5 및 도 7 에 도시 된 샌드위치형 구조 는 이중 산화막 구조의 잠재적인 결합을 나타내었다. 그러나 산화막의 결합으로 인한 강도 증가를 정량화하기 위해서는 더 많은 증거가 필요합니다.

(2) 연행 결함의 보이드 체적 감소 . 주조품의 품질에 대한 보이드 부피 감소의 긍정적인 효과는 HIP 프로세스 [67]에 의해 널리 입증되었습니다 . 섹션 4.1 – 4.2 에서 논의된 진화 과정과 같이 , 동반된 가스와 주변 AZ91 합금 용융물 사이의 지속적인 반응으로 인해 동반 결함의 산화막이 함께 성장할 수 있습니다. 최종 고체 생성물의 부피는 동반된 기체에 비해 상당히 작았다(즉, 이전에 언급된 바와 같이 0.044%).

따라서, 혼입 가스의 소모율(즉, 산화막의 성장 속도)은 AZ91 합금 주물의 품질을 향상시키는 중요한 매개변수가 될 수 있습니다. 이에 따라 산화 셀의 산화막 성장 속도를 추가로 조사했습니다.

도 14 는 상이한 커버 가스(즉, 0.5%SF 6 /air 및 0.5%SF 6 /CO 2 ) 에서의 표면 필름 성장 속도의 비교를 보여준다 . 필름 두께 측정을 위해 각 샘플의 15개의 임의 지점을 선택했습니다. 95% 신뢰구간(95%CI)은 막두께의 변화가 가우시안 분포를 따른다는 가정하에 계산하였다. 0.5%SF 6 /air 에서 형성된 모든 표면막이 0.5%SF 6 /CO 2 에서 형성된 것보다 빠르게 성장함을 알 수 있다 . 다른 성장률은 0.5%SF 6 /air 의 연행 가스 소비율 이 0.5%SF 6 /CO 2 보다 더 높음 을 시사했습니다., 이는 동반된 가스의 소비에 더 유리했습니다.

그림 14

산화 셀에서 액체 AZ91 합금과 커버 가스의 접촉 면적(즉, 도가니의 크기)은 많은 양의 용융물과 가스를 고려할 때 상대적으로 작았다는 점에 유의해야 합니다. 결과적으로, 산화 셀 내에서 산화막 성장을 위한 유지 시간은 비교적 길었다(즉, 5-30분). 하지만, 실제 주조에 함유 된 혼입 결함은 (상대적으로 매우 적은, 즉, 수 미크론의 크기에 도시 된 바와 같이 ,도 3. – 6 및 [7]), 동반된 가스는 주변 용융물로 완전히 둘러싸여 상대적으로 큰 접촉 영역을 생성합니다. 따라서 커버 가스와 AZ91 합금 용융물의 반응 시간은 비교적 짧을 수 있습니다. 또한 실제 Mg 합금 모래 주조의 응고 시간은 몇 분일 수 있습니다(예: Guo [68] 은 직경 60mm의 Mg 합금 모래 주조가 응고되는 데 4분이 필요하다고 보고했습니다). 따라서 Mg-합금 용융주조 과정에서 포획된 동반된 가스는 특히 응고 시간이 긴 모래 주물 및 대형 주물의 경우 주변 용융물에 의해 쉽게 소모될 것으로 예상할 수 있습니다.

따라서, 동반 가스의 다른 소비율과 관련된 다른 커버 가스(0.5%SF 6 /air 및 0.5%SF 6 /CO 2 )가 최종 주물의 재현성에 영향을 미칠 수 있습니다. 이 가정을 검증하기 위해 0.5%SF 6 /air 및 0.5%SF 6 /CO 2 에서 생산된 AZ91 주물 을 기계적 평가를 위해 테스트 막대로 가공했습니다. Weibull 분석은 선형 최소 자승(LLS) 방법과 비선형 최소 자승(비 LLS) 방법을 모두 사용하여 수행되었습니다 [69] .

그림 15 (ab)는 LLS 방법으로 얻은 UTS 및 AZ91 합금 주물의 연신율의 전통적인 2-p 선형 Weibull 플롯을 보여줍니다. 사용된 추정기는 P= (i-0.5)/N이며, 이는 모든 인기 있는 추정기 중 가장 낮은 편향을 유발하는 것으로 제안되었습니다 [69 , 70] . SF 6 /air 에서 생산된 주물 은 UTS Weibull 계수가 16.9이고 연신율 Weibull 계수가 5.0입니다. 대조적으로, SF 6 /CO 2 에서 생산된 주물의 UTS 및 연신 Weibull 계수는 각각 7.7과 2.7로, SF 6 /CO 2 에 의해 보호된 주물의 재현성이 SF 6 /air 에서 생산된 것보다 훨씬 낮음을 시사합니다. .

그림 15

또한 저자의 이전 출판물 [69] 은 선형화된 Weibull 플롯의 단점을 보여주었으며, 이는 Weibull 추정 의 더 높은 편향과 잘못된 2 중단을 유발할 수 있습니다 . 따라서 그림 15 (cd) 와 같이 Non-LLS Weibull 추정이 수행되었습니다 . SF 6 /공기주조물 의 UTS Weibull 계수 는 20.8인 반면, SF 6 /CO 2 하에서 생산된 주조물의 UTS Weibull 계수는 11.4로 낮아 재현성에서 분명한 차이를 보였다. 또한 SF 6 /air elongation(El%) 데이터 세트는 SF 6 /CO 2 의 elongation 데이터 세트보다 더 높은 Weibull 계수(모양 = 5.8)를 가졌습니다.(모양 = 3.1). 따라서 LLS 및 Non-LLS 추정 모두 SF 6 /공기 주조가 SF 6 /CO 2 주조 보다 더 높은 재현성을 갖는다고 제안했습니다 . CO 2 대신 공기를 사용 하면 혼입된 가스의 더 빠른 소비에 기여하여 결함 내의 공극 부피를 줄일 수 있다는 방법을 지원합니다 . 따라서 0.5%SF 6 /CO 2 대신 0.5%SF 6 /air를 사용 하면(동반된 가스의 소비율이 증가함) AZ91 주물의 재현성이 향상되었습니다.

그러나 모든 Mg 합금 주조 공장이 현재 작업에서 사용되는 주조 공정을 따랐던 것은 아니라는 점에 유의해야 합니다. Mg의 합금 용탕 본 작업은 탈기에 따라서, 동반 가스의 소비에 수소의 영향을 감소 (즉, 수소 잠재적 동반 가스의 고갈 억제, 동반 된 기체로 확산 될 수있다 [7 , 71 , 72] ). 대조적으로, 마그네슘 합금 주조 공장에서는 마그네슘을 주조할 때 ‘가스 문제’가 없고 따라서 인장 특성에 큰 변화가 없다고 널리 믿어지기 때문에 마그네슘 합금 용융물은 일반적으로 탈기되지 않습니다 [73] . 연구에 따르면 Mg 합금 주물의 기계적 특성에 대한 수소의 부정적인 영향 [41 ,42 , 73] , 탈기 공정은 마그네슘 합금 주조 공장에서 여전히 인기가 없습니다.

또한 현재 작업에서 모래 주형 공동은 붓기 전에 SF 6 커버 가스 로 플러싱되었습니다 [22] . 그러나 모든 Mg 합금 주조 공장이 이러한 방식으로 금형 캐비티를 플러싱한 것은 아닙니다. 예를 들어, Stone Foundry Ltd(영국)는 커버 가스 플러싱 대신 유황 분말을 사용했습니다. 그들의 주물 내의 동반된 가스 는 보호 가스라기 보다는 SO 2 /공기일 수 있습니다 .

따라서 본 연구의 결과는 CO 2 대신 공기를 사용 하는 것이 최종 주조의 재현성을 향상시키는 것으로 나타났지만 다른 산업용 Mg 합금 주조 공정과 관련하여 캐리어 가스의 영향을 확인하기 위해서는 여전히 추가 조사가 필요합니다.

7 . 결론

1.

AZ91 합금에 형성된 연행 결함이 관찰되었습니다. 그들의 산화막은 단층과 다층의 두 가지 유형의 구조를 가지고 있습니다. 다층 산화막은 함께 성장하여 최종 주조에서 샌드위치 같은 구조를 형성할 수 있습니다.2.

실험 결과와 이론적인 열역학적 계산은 모두 갇힌 가스의 불화물이 황을 소비하기 전에 고갈되었음을 보여주었습니다. 이중 산화막 결함의 3단계 진화 과정이 제안되었습니다. 산화막은 진화 단계에 따라 다양한 화합물 조합을 포함했습니다. SF 6 /air 에서 형성된 결함 은 SF 6 /CO 2 에서 형성된 것과 유사한 구조를 갖지만 산화막의 조성은 달랐다. 엔트레인먼트 결함의 산화막 형성 및 진화 과정은 이전에 보고된 Mg 합금 표면막(즉, MgF 2 이전에 형성된 MgO)의 것과 달랐다 .삼.

산화막의 성장 속도는 SF하에 큰 것으로 입증되었다 (6) / SF보다 공기 6 / CO 2 손상 봉입 가스의 빠른 소비에 기여한다. AZ91 합금 주물의 재현성은 SF 6 /CO 2 대신 SF 6 /air를 사용할 때 향상되었습니다 .

Abstract

적층 제조(AM) 기술은 복잡한 형상의 3D 부품을 쉽게 만들고 미세 구조 제어를 통해 재료 특성을 크게 제어할 수 있기 때문에 많은 관심을 받았습니다. PBF(Powderbed fusion) 방식의 AM 공정에서는 금속 분말을 레이저나 전자빔으로 녹이고 응고시키는 과정을 반복하여 3D 부품을 제작합니다.

일반적으로 응고 미세구조는 Hunt[Mater. 과학. 영어 65, 75(1984)]. 그러나 CET 이론이 일반 316L 스테인리스강에서도 높은 G와 R로 인해 PBF형 AM 공정에 적용될 수 있을지는 불확실하다.

본 연구에서는 미세구조와 응고 조건 간의 관계를 밝히기 위해 전자빔 조사에 의해 유도된 316L 강의 응고 미세구조를 분석하고 CtFD(Computational Thermal-Fluid Dynamics) 방법을 사용하여 고체/액체 계면에서의 응고 조건을 평가했습니다.

CET 이론과 반대로 높은 G 조건에서 등축 결정립이 종종 형성되는 것으로 밝혀졌다. CtFD 시뮬레이션은 약 400 mm s-1의 속도까지 유체 흐름이 있음을 보여 주며 수상 돌기의 파편 및 이동의 영향으로 등축 결정립이 형성됨을 시사했습니다.

Additive manufacturing(AM)technologies have attracted much attention because it enables us to build 3D parts with complicated geometry easily and control material properties significantly via the control of microstructures. In the powderbed fusion(PBF)type AM process, 3D parts are fabricated by repeating a process of melting and solidifying metal powders by laser or electron beams. In general, the solidification microstructures can be predicted from solidification conditions defined by the combination of temperature gradient G and solidification rate R on the basis of columnar-equiaxed transition(CET)theory proposed by Hunt [Mater. Sci. Eng. 65, 75(1984)]. However, it is unclear whether the CET theory can be applied to the PBF type AM process because of the high G and R, even for general 316L stainless steel. In this study, to reveal relationships between microstructures and solidification conditions, we have analyzed solidification microstructures of 316L steel induced by electronbeam irradiation and evaluated solidification conditions at the solid/liquid interface using a computational thermal-fluid dynamics (CtFD)method. It was found that equiaxed grains were often formed under high G conditions contrary to the CET theory. CtFD simulation revealed that there is a fluid flow up to a velocity of about 400 mm s-1, and suggested that equiaxed grains are formed owing to the effect of fragmentations and migrations of dendrites.

Abstract

17-4 PH (precipitation hardening) stainless steel is commonly used for the fabrication of complicated molds with conformal cooling channels using laser powder bed fusion process (L-PBF). However, their microstructure in the as-printed condition varies notably with the chemical composition of the feedstock powder, resulting in different age-hardening behavior. In the present investigation, 17-4 PH stainless steel components were fabricated by L-PBF from two different feedstock powders, and subsequently subjected to different combinations of post-process heat treatments. It was observed that the microstructure in as-printed conditions could be almost fully martensitic or ferritic, depending on the ratio of Creq/Nieq of the feedstock powder. Aging treatment at 480 °C improved the yield and ultimate tensile strengths of the as-printed components. However, specimens with martensitic structures exhibited accelerated age-hardening response compared with the ferritic specimens due to the higher lattice distortion and dislocation accumulation, resulting in the “dislocation pipe diffusion mechanism”. It was also found that the martensitic structures were highly susceptible to the formation of reverted austenite during direct aging treatment, where 19.5% of austenite phase appeared in the microstructure after 15 h of direct aging. Higher fractions of reverted austenite activates the transformation induced plasticity and improves the ductility of heat treated specimens. The results of the present study can be used to tailor the microstructure of the L-PBF printed 17-4 PH stainless steel by post-process heat treatments to achieve a good combination of mechanical properties.

17-4 PH(석출 경화) 스테인리스강은 레이저 분말 베드 융합 공정(L-PBF)을 사용하여 등각 냉각 채널이 있는 복잡한 금형 제작에 일반적으로 사용됩니다. 그러나 인쇄된 상태의 미세 구조는 공급원료 분말의 화학적 조성에 따라 크게 달라지므로 시효 경화 거동이 다릅니다.

현재 조사에서 17-4 PH 스테인리스강 구성요소는 L-PBF에 의해 두 가지 다른 공급원료 분말로 제조되었으며, 이후에 다양한 조합의 후처리 열처리를 거쳤습니다. 인쇄된 상태의 미세구조는 공급원료 분말의 Creq/Nieq 비율에 따라 거의 완전히 마르텐사이트 또는 페라이트인 것으로 관찰되었습니다.

480 °C에서 노화 처리는 인쇄된 구성 요소의 수율과 극한 인장 강도를 개선했습니다. 그러나 마텐자이트 구조의 시편은 격자 변형 및 전위 축적이 높아 페라이트 시편에 비해 시효 경화 반응이 가속화되어 “전위 파이프 확산 메커니즘”이 발생합니다.

또한 마르텐사이트 구조는 직접 시효 처리 중에 복귀된 오스테나이트의 형성에 매우 민감한 것으로 밝혀졌으며, 여기서 15시간의 직접 시효 후 미세 조직에 19.5%의 오스테나이트 상이 나타났습니다.

복귀된 오스테나이트의 비율이 높을수록 변형 유도 가소성이 활성화되고 열처리된 시편의 연성이 향상됩니다. 본 연구의 결과는 기계적 특성의 우수한 조합을 달성하기 위해 후처리 열처리를 통해 L-PBF로 인쇄된 17-4 PH 스테인리스강의 미세 구조를 조정하는 데 사용할 수 있습니다.

Abstract

The surface morphology of parts made by the laser powder bed fusion (L-PBF) process is governed by the flow of the melt pool. The nature of the molten metal flow depends on the material properties, process parameters, and powder-bed particles, etc., and may result in potentially significant variations along a laser scanning path.

This study investigates the formation of transient and steady-state zones through a single-track l-PBF experiment using Inconel 625 powder. Single tracks with lengths of 1 mm and 2 mm were fabricated using 195 W laser power and scan speeds of 400 mm/s or 800 mm/s. The surface morphology of the track was analyzed using a white light interferometer (WLI), and an individual single track can be divided into three distinct zones based on the track width and height.

The initial transient region has a wider and taller solidified track geometry, the region near the end of a scan has a tapered profile with a decreasing track width and height, while the steady-state region in the middle has a smaller variation in the width and height.

A mesoscale numerical model was further developed using FLOW-3D to examine the formation of the transient and steady-state zones. At the start of a scan, strong flow occurs outward and backward, leading to the formation of a wider track with a bump. As the scan continues, the thermal gradient stabilizes, leading to a steady state, which resulted in a very small fluctuation in the width. Furthermore, the tapered end of the scan track is due to the half-lemniscate shape of the melt pool during laser scanning.

L-PBF(Laser Powder Bed fusion) 공정으로 만든 부품의 표면 형태는 용융 풀의 흐름에 따라 결정됩니다. 용융 금속 흐름의 특성은 재료 특성, 공정 매개변수 및 분말층 입자 등에 따라 달라지며 레이저 스캐닝 경로를 따라 잠재적으로 상당한 변동이 발생할 수 있습니다.

이 연구는 Inconel 625 분말을 사용하여 단일 트랙 l-PBF 실험을 통해 과도 및 정상 상태 영역의 형성을 조사합니다. 1 mm 및 2 mm 길이의 단일 트랙은 195 W 레이저 출력과 400 mm/s 또는 800 mm/s의 스캔 속도를 사용하여 제작되었습니다. 트랙의 표면 형태는 백색광 간섭계(WLI)를 사용하여 분석되었으며 개별 단일 트랙은 트랙 너비와 높이에 따라 3개의 별개 영역으로 나눌 수 있습니다.

초기 과도 영역은 더 넓고 더 높은 응고된 트랙 형상을 가지며, 스캔 끝 근처의 영역은 트랙 너비와 높이가 감소하는 테이퍼 프로파일을 갖는 반면, 중간의 정상 상태 영역은 너비와 높이에서 더 작은 변동을 가집니다. 신장. 중간 규모 수치 모델은 과도 및 정상 상태 영역의 형성을 조사하기 위해 FLOW-3D를 사용하여 추가로 개발되었습니다.

스캔이 시작될 때 강한 흐름이 바깥쪽과 뒤쪽으로 발생하여 범프가 있는 더 넓은 트랙이 형성됩니다. 스캔이 계속됨에 따라 열 구배가 안정화되어 정상 상태로 이어지며 폭의 변동이 매우 작습니다. 또한 스캔 트랙의 끝이 가늘어지는 것은 레이저 스캔 중 용융 풀의 반-렘니케이트 모양 때문입니다.

Directed Energy Deposition

DED (Directed Energy Deposition)는 레이저 또는 전자 빔과 같은 에너지 소스를 사용하여 가열 및 융합되는 와이어 또는 분말을 증착하여 부품을 만드는 적층 제조 공정입니다. FLOW-3D AM 은 분말 또는 와이어 이송 속도 및 크기 특성, 레이저 출력 및 스캔 속도와 같은 공정 매개 변수를 고려하여 DED 공정을 시뮬레이션 할 수 있습니다. 또한, 기판과 분말 재료의 서로 다른 합금에 대해 독립적 인 열 물리적 재료 특성을 정의하여 다중 재료 DED 프로세스를 시뮬레이션 할 수 있습니다. 

레이저 물리학의 구현과 열 전달, 응고, 표면 장력, 차폐 가스 효과 및 반동 압력을 포함한 압력 효과를 통해 연구원은 결과 용접 비드의 강도 및 균일성에 대한 공정 매개 변수의 영향을 정확하게 분석 할 수 있습니다. 또한 이러한 시뮬레이션을 여러 레이어로 확장하여 후속 레이어 간의 융합을 분석 할 수 있습니다.

와이어 파우더 기반 DED | Wire Powder Based DED

일부 연구자들은 부품을 만들기 위해 더 넓은 범위의 처리 조건을 사용하여 하이브리드 와이어 분말 기반 DED 시스템을 찾고 있습니다. 예를 들어, 이 시뮬레이션은 다양한 분말 및 와이어 이송 속도를 가진 하이브리드 시스템을 살펴봅니다.

와이어 기반 DED | Wire Based DED

와이어 기반 DED는 분말 기반 DED보다 처리량이 높고 낭비가 적지만 재료 구성 및 증착 방향 측면에서 유연성이 떨어집니다. FLOW-3D AM 은 와이어 기반 DED의 처리 결과를 이해하는데 유용하며 최적화 연구를 통해 빌드에 대한 와이어 이송 속도 및 직경과 같은 최상의 처리 매개 변수를 찾을 수 있습니다.

FLOW-3D AM은 레이저 파우더 베드 융합 (L-PBF), 바인더 제트 및 DED (Directed Energy Deposition)와 같은 적층 제조 공정 ( additive manufacturing )을 시뮬레이션하고 분석하는 CFD 소프트웨어입니다. FLOW-3D AM 의 다중 물리 기능은 공정 매개 변수의 분석 및 최적화를 위해 분말 확산 및 압축, 용융 풀 역학, L-PBF 및 DED에 대한 다공성 형성, 바인더 분사 공정을 위한 수지 침투 및 확산에 대해 매우 정확한 시뮬레이션을 제공합니다.

3D 프린팅이라고도하는 적층 제조(additive manufacturing)는 일반적으로 층별 접근 방식을 사용하여, 분말 또는 와이어로 부품을 제조하는 방법입니다. 금속 기반 적층 제조 공정에 대한 관심은 지난 몇 년 동안 시작되었습니다. 오늘날 사용되는 3 대 금속 적층 제조 공정은 PBF (Powder Bed Fusion), DED (Directed Energy Deposition) 및 바인더 제트 ( Binder jetting ) 공정입니다.  FLOW-3D  AM  은 이러한 각 프로세스에 대한 고유 한 시뮬레이션 통찰력을 제공합니다.

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.

LPBF 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 통해 분말 크기 분포, 재료 특성, 응집 효과는 물론 롤러 또는 블레이드 움직임 및 상호 작용과 같은 기하학적 효과와 관련된 분말 확산 및 압축을 이해할 수 있습니다. 이러한 시뮬레이션은 공정 매개 변수가 후속 인쇄 공정에서 용융 풀 역학에 직접적인 영향을 미치는 패킹 밀도와 같은 분말 베드 특성에 어떻게 영향을 미치는지에 대한 정확한 이해를 제공합니다.

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.

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.

Melting | 파우더 베드 용해

DEM 시뮬레이션에서 파우더 베드가 생성되면 STL 파일로 추출됩니다. 다음 단계는 CFD를 사용하여 레이저 용융 공정을 시뮬레이션하는 것입니다. 여기서는 레이저 빔과 파우더 베드의 상호 작용을 모델링 합니다. 이 프로세스를 정확하게 포착하기 위해 물리학에는 점성 흐름, 용융 풀 내의 레이저 반사 (광선 추적을 통해), 열 전달, 응고, 상 변화 및 기화, 반동 압력, 차폐 가스 압력 및 표면 장력이 포함됩니다. 이 모든 물리학은 이 복잡한 프로세스를 정확하게 시뮬레이션하기 위해 TruVOF 방법을 기반으로 개발되었습니다.

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.

Multilayer | 다층 적층 제조

용융 풀 트랙이 응고되면 DEM을 사용하여 이전에 응고된 층에 새로운 분말 층의 확산을 시뮬레이션 할 수 있습니다. 유사하게, 레이저 용융은 새로운 분말 층에서 수행되어 후속 층 간의 융합 조건을 분석 할 수 있습니다.

해석 진행 절차는 첫 번째 용융층이 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 응고된 층 간의 융합, 빌드 내 온도 구배를 평가하는 동시에 다공성 또는 기타 결함의 형성을 모니터링 할 수 있습니다.

다층 적층 적층 제조 시뮬레이션

LPBF의 키홀 링 | Keyholing in LPBF

키홀링 중 다공성은 어떻게 형성됩니까? 이것은 TU Denmark의 연구원들이 FLOW-3D AM을 사용하여 답변한 질문이었습니다. 레이저 빔의 적용으로 기판이 녹으면 기화 및 상 변화로 인한 반동 압력이 용융 풀을 압박합니다. 반동 압력으로 인한 하향 흐름과 레이저 반사로 인한 추가 레이저 에너지 흡수가 공존하면 폭주 효과가 발생하여 용융 풀이 Keyholing으로 전환됩니다. 결국, 키홀 벽을 따라 온도가 변하기 때문에 표면 장력으로 인해 벽이 뭉쳐져서 진행되는 응고 전선에 의해 갇힐 수 있는 공극이 생겨 다공성이 발생합니다. FLOW-3D AM 레이저 파우더 베드 융합 공정 모듈은 키홀링 및 다공성 형성을 시뮬레이션 하는데 필요한 모든 물리 모델을 보유하고 있습니다.

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.

Scan Strategy | 스캔 전략

스캔 전략은 온도 구배 및 냉각 속도에 영향을 미치기 때문에 미세 구조에 직접적인 영향을 미칩니다. 연구원들은 FLOW-3D AM 을 사용하여 결함 형성과 응고된 금속의 미세 구조에 영향을 줄 수 있는 트랙 사이에서 발생하는 재 용융을 이해하기 위한 최적의 스캔 전략을 탐색하고 있습니다. FLOW-3D AM 은 하나 또는 여러 레이저에 대해 시간에 따른 방향 속도를 구현할 때 완전한 유연성을 제공합니다.

Beam Shaping | 빔 형성

레이저 출력 및 스캔 전략 외에도 레이저 빔 모양과 열유속 분포는 LPBF 공정에서 용융 풀 역학에 큰 영향을 미칩니다. AM 기계 제조업체는 공정 안정성 및 처리량에 대해 다중 코어 및 임의 모양의 레이저 빔 사용을 모색하고 있습니다. FLOW-3D AM을 사용하면 멀티 코어 및 임의 모양의 빔 프로파일을 구현할 수 있으므로 생산량을 늘리고 부품 품질을 개선하기 위한 최상의 구성에 대한 통찰력을 제공 할 수 있습니다.

Multi-material Powder Bed Fusion | 다중 재료 분말 베드 융합

이 시뮬레이션에서 스테인리스 강 및 알루미늄 분말은 FLOW-3D AM 이 용융 풀 역학을 정확하게 포착하기 위해 추적하는 독립적으로 정의 된 온도 의존 재료 특성을 가지고 있습니다. 시뮬레이션은 용융 풀에서 재료 혼합을 이해하는 데 도움이됩니다.

다중 재료 용접 사례 연구

이종 금속의 레이저 키홀 용접에서 금속 혼합 조사

GM과 University of Utah의 연구원들은 FLOW-3D WELD 를 사용 하여 레이저 키홀 용접을 통한 이종 금속의 혼합을 이해했습니다. 그들은 반동 압력 및 Marangoni 대류와 관련하여 구리와 알루미늄의 혼합 농도에 대한 레이저 출력 및 스캔 속도의 영향을 조사했습니다. 그들은 시뮬레이션을 실험 결과와 비교했으며 샘플 내의 절단 단면에서 재료 농도 사이에 좋은 일치를 발견했습니다.

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.

Abstract

Electromagnetic metal casting (EMC) is a casting technique that uses electromagnetic energy to heat metal powders. It is a faster, cleaner, and less time-consuming operation. Solid metals create issues in electromagnetics since they reflect the electromagnetic radiation rather than consume it—electromagnetic energy processing results in sounded pieces with higher-ranking material properties and a more excellent microstructure solution. For the physical production of the electromagnetic casting process, knowledge of electromagnetic material interaction is critical. Even where the heated material is an excellent electromagnetic absorber, the total heating quality is sometimes insufficient. Numerical modelling works on finding the proper coupled effects between properties to bring out the most effective operation. The main parameters influencing the quality of output of the EMC process are: power dissipated per unit volume into the material, penetration depth of electromagnetics, complex magnetic permeability and complex dielectric permittivity. The contact mechanism and interference pattern also, in turn, determines the quality of the process. Only a few parameters, such as the environment’s temperature, the interference pattern, and the rate of metal solidification, can be controlled by AI models. Neural networks are used to achieve exact outcomes by stimulating the neurons in the human brain. Additive manufacturing (AM) is used to design mold and cores for metal casting. The models outperformed the traditional DFA optimization approach, which is susceptible to local minima. The system works only offline, so real-time analysis and corrections are not yet possible.

Korea Abstract

전자기 금속 주조 (EMC)는 전자기 에너지를 사용하여 금속 분말을 가열하는 주조 기술입니다. 더 빠르고 깨끗하며 시간이 덜 소요되는 작업입니다.

고체 금속은 전자기 복사를 소비하는 대신 반사하기 때문에 전자기학에서 문제를 일으킵니다. 전자기 에너지 처리는 더 높은 등급의 재료 특성과 더 우수한 미세 구조 솔루션을 가진 사운드 조각을 만듭니다.

전자기 주조 공정의 물리적 생산을 위해서는 전자기 물질 상호 작용에 대한 지식이 중요합니다. 가열된 물질이 우수한 전자기 흡수재인 경우에도 전체 가열 품질이 때때로 불충분합니다. 수치 모델링은 가장 효과적인 작업을 이끌어 내기 위해 속성 간의 적절한 결합 효과를 찾는데 사용됩니다.

EMC 공정의 출력 품질에 영향을 미치는 주요 매개 변수는 단위 부피당 재료로 분산되는 전력, 전자기의 침투 깊이, 복합 자기 투과성 및 복합 유전율입니다. 접촉 메커니즘과 간섭 패턴 또한 공정의 품질을 결정합니다. 환경 온도, 간섭 패턴 및 금속 응고 속도와 같은 몇 가지 매개 변수 만 AI 모델로 제어 할 수 있습니다.

신경망은 인간 뇌의 뉴런을 자극하여 정확한 결과를 얻기 위해 사용됩니다. 적층 제조 (AM)는 금속 주조용 몰드 및 코어를 설계하는 데 사용됩니다. 모델은 로컬 최소값에 영향을 받기 쉬운 기존 DFA 최적화 접근 방식을 능가했습니다. 이 시스템은 오프라인에서만 작동하므로 실시간 분석 및 수정은 아직 불가능합니다.

Abstract:

This paper presents the fabrication of a novel micro-machined cytometric device, and the experimental investigations for its 3D hydrodynamic focusing performance. The proposed device is simple in structure, with the uniqueness that the depth of its microchannels is non-uniform. Using the SU-8 soft lithography containing two exposures, as well as micro-molding techniques, the PDMS device is successfully fabricated. Two kinds of experiments, i.e., the red ink fluidity observation experiments and the fluorescent optical experiments, are then performed for the device prototypes with different step heights, or channel depth differences, to explore the influence laws of the feature parameter on the devices hydrodynamic focusing behaviors. The experimental results show that the introducing of the steps can efficiently enhance the vertical focusing performance of the device. At appropriate geometry and operating conditions, good 3D hydrodynamic focusing can be obtained.

Conclusions

In this paper, we presented a novel micro-machined cytometric device and its fabrication process,
emphasizing on the experimental investigations for its 3D hydrodynamic focusing performance. The
proposed device is simple in structure, low cost, and easy to be batch produced. Besides this, as a
device based on standard micro-fabrication methodology, it can be conveniently integrated with other
micro-fluidic and/or micro-optical units to form a complete detection and analysis system.
The experimental tests for the prototype devices not only verified the design conception, but also
gave us a comprehensive understanding of the device hydro-focusing performance. The experimental
results show that, as the uniqueness of this design, the introducing of the feature steps can
significantly enhance the vertical focusing performance of the devices, which is crucial for the
achievement of 3D focusing. In summary, for the proposed novel device, good 3D hydrodynamic
focusing can be attained at appropriate geometry and operating conditions.
In addition, an improved design can be obtained by replacing the flat cover with an identical
device unit, in other words, the same two device units are bonded together (The channels are inward
and aligned) to form a new device. Then the sample stream can focused to the center of the assembly
outlet channel due to the hydrodynamic forces equally in both horizontal and vertical directions, and
thus avoiding the adsorption or friction issues of cells/particles to the top channel wall.

ABSTRACT

Surface roughness of laser powder bed fusion (L-PBF) printed overhang regions is a major contributor to deteriorated shape accuracy/surface quality. This study investigates the mechanisms behind the evolution of surface roughness (Ra) in overhang regions. The evolution of surface morphology is the result of a combination of border track contour, powder adhesion, warp deformation, and dross formation, which is strongly related to the overhang angle (θ). When 0° ≤ θ ≤ 15°, the overhang angle does not affect Ra significantly since only a small area of the melt pool boundaries contacts the powder bed resulting in slight powder adhesion. When 15° < θ ≤ 50°, powder adhesion is enhanced by the melt pool sinking and the increased contact area between the melt pool boundary and powder bed. When θ > 50°, large waviness of the overhang contour, adhesion of powder clusters, severe warp deformation and dross formation increase Ra sharply.

레이저 파우더 베드 퓨전 (L-PBF) 프린팅 오버행 영역의 표면 거칠기는 형상 정확도 / 표면 품질 저하의 주요 원인입니다. 이 연구 는 오버행 영역에서 표면 거칠기 (Ra ) 의 진화 뒤에 있는 메커니즘을 조사합니다 . 표면 형태의 진화는 오버행 각도 ( θ ) 와 밀접한 관련이있는 경계 트랙 윤곽, 분말 접착, 뒤틀림 변형 및 드로스 형성의 조합의 결과입니다 . 0° ≤  θ  ≤ 15° 인 경우 , 용융풀 경계의 작은 영역 만 분말 베드와 접촉하여 약간의 분말 접착이 발생하기 때문에 오버행 각도가 R a에 큰 영향을 주지 않습니다 . 15° < θ 일 때  ≤ 50°, 용융 풀 싱킹 및 용융 풀 경계와 분말 베드 사이의 증가된 접촉 면적으로 분말 접착력이 향상됩니다. θ  > 50° 일 때 오버행 윤곽의 큰 파형, 분말 클러스터의 접착, 심한 휨 변형 및 드 로스 형성이 Ra 급격히 증가 합니다.

1. Introduction

레이저 분말 베드 융합 (L-PBF)은 첨단 적층 제조 (AM) 기술로, 집중된 레이저 빔을 사용하여 금속 분말을 선택적으로 융합하여 슬라이스 된 3D 컴퓨터 지원에 따라 층별로 3 차원 (3D) 금속 부품을 구축합니다. 설계 (CAD) 모델 (Chatham, Long 및 Williams 2019 ; Tan, Zhu 및 Zhou 2020 ). 재료가 인쇄 층 아래에 ​​존재하는지 여부에 따라 인쇄 영역은 각각 솔리드 영역 또는 돌출 영역으로 분류 될 수 있습니다. 따라서 오버행 영역은 고체 기판이 아니라 분말 베드 바로 위에 건설되는 특수 구조입니다 (Patterson, Messimer 및 Farrington 2017). 오버행 영역은지지 구조를 포함하거나 포함하지 않고 구축 할 수 있으며, 지지대가있는 돌출 영역의 L-PBF는 지지체가 더 낮은 밀도로 구축된다는 점을 제외 하고 (Wang and Chou 2018 ) 고체 기판의 공정과 유사합니다 (따라서 기계적 강도가 낮기 때문에 L-PBF 공정 후 기계적으로 쉽게 제거 할 수 있습니다. 따라서지지 구조로 인쇄 된 오버행 영역은 L-PBF 공정 후 지지물 제거, 연삭 및 연마와 같은 추가 후 처리 단계가 필요합니다.

수평 내부 채널의 제작과 같은 일부 특정 경우에는 공정 후 지지대를 제거하기가 어려우므로 채널 상단 절반의 돌출부 영역을 지지대없이 건설해야합니다 (Hopkinson and Dickens 2000 ). 수평 내부 채널에 사용할 수없는지지 구조 외에도 내부 표면, 특히 등각 냉각 채널 (Feng, Kamat 및 Pei 2021 ) 에서 발생하는 복잡한 3D 채널 네트워크의 경우 표면 마감 프로세스를 구현하는 것도 어렵습니다 . 결과적으로 오버행 영역은 (i) 잔류 응력에 의한 변형, (ii) 계단 효과 (Kuo et al. 2020 ; Li et al. 2020 )로 인해 설계된 모양에서 벗어날 수 있습니다 .) 및 (iii) 원하지 않는 분말 소결로 인한 향상된 표면 거칠기; 여기서, 앞의 두 요소는 일반적으로 mm 길이 스케일에서 ‘매크로’편차로 분류되고 후자는 일반적으로 µm 길이 스케일에서 ‘마이크로’편차로 인식됩니다.

열 응력에 의한 변형은 오버행 영역에서 발생하는 중요한 문제입니다 (Patterson, Messimer 및 Farrington 2017 ). 국부적 인 용융 / 냉각은 용융 풀 내부 및 주변에서 큰 온도 구배를 유도하여 응고 된 층에 집중적 인 열 응력을 유발합니다. 열 응력에 의한 뒤틀림은 고체 영역을 현저하게 변형하지 않습니다. 이러한 영역은 아래의 여러 레이어에 의해 제한되기 때문입니다. 반면에 오버행 영역은 구속되지 않고 공정 중 응력 완화로 인해 상당한 변형이 발생합니다 (Kamat 및 Pei 2019 ). 더욱이 용융 깊이는 레이어 두께보다 큽니다 (이전 레이어도 재용 해되어 빌드 된 레이어간에 충분한 결합을 보장하기 때문입니다 [Yadroitsev et al. 2013 ; Kamath et al.2014 ]),응고 된 두께가 설계된 두께보다 크기 때문에형태 편차 (예 : 드 로스 [Charles et al. 2020 ; Feng et al. 2020 ])가 발생합니다. 마이크로 스케일에서 인쇄 된 표면 (R a 및 S a ∼ 10 μm)은 기계적으로 가공 된 표면보다 거칠다 (Duval-Chaneac et al. 2018 ; Wen et al. 2018 ). 이 문제는고형화 된 용융 풀의 가장자리에 부착 된 용융되지 않은 분말의 결과로 표면 거칠기 (R a )가 일반적으로 약 20 μm인 오버행 영역에서 특히 심각합니다 (Mazur et al. 2016 ; Pakkanen et al. 2016 ).

오버행 각도 ( θ , 빌드 방향과 관련하여 측정)는 오버행 영역의 뒤틀림 편향과 표면 거칠기에 영향을 미치는 중요한 매개 변수입니다 (Kamat and Pei 2019 ; Mingear et al. 2019 ). θ ∼ 45 ° 의 오버행 각도 는 일반적으로지지 구조없이 오버행 영역을 인쇄 할 수있는 임계 값으로 합의됩니다 (Pakkanen et al. 2016 ; Kadirgama et al. 2018 ). θ 일 때이 임계 값보다 크면 오버행 영역을 허용 가능한 표면 품질로 인쇄 할 수 없습니다. 오버행 각도 외에도 레이저 매개 변수 (레이저 에너지 밀도와 관련된)는 용융 풀의 모양 / 크기 및 용융 풀 역학에 영향을줌으로써 오버행 영역의 표면 거칠기에 영향을줍니다 (Wang et al. 2013 ; Mingear et al . 2019 ).

용융 풀 역학은 고체 (Shrestha 및 Chou 2018 ) 및 오버행 (Le et al. 2020 ) 영역 모두에서 수행되는 L-PBF 공정을 포함한 레이저 재료 가공의 일반적인 물리적 현상입니다 . 용융 풀 모양, 크기 및 냉각 속도는 잔류 응력으로 인한 변형과 ​​표면 거칠기에 모두 영향을 미치므로 처리 매개 변수와 표면 형태 / 품질 사이의 다리 역할을하며 용융 풀을 이해하기 위해 수치 시뮬레이션을 사용하여 추가 조사를 수행 할 수 있습니다. 거동과 표면 거칠기에 미치는 영향. 현재까지 고체 영역의 L-PBF 동안 용융 풀 동작을 시뮬레이션하기 위해 여러 연구가 수행되었습니다. 유한 요소 방법 (FEM)과 같은 시뮬레이션 기술 (Roberts et al. 2009 ; Du et al.2019 ), 유한 차분 법 (FDM) (Wu et al. 2018 ), 전산 유체 역학 (CFD) (Lee and Zhang 2016 ), 임의의 Lagrangian-Eulerian 방법 (ALE) (Khairallah and Anderson 2014 )을 사용하여 증발 반동 압력 (Hu et al. 2018 ) 및 Marangoni 대류 (Zhang et al. 2018 ) 현상을포함하는 열 전달 (온도 장) 및 물질 전달 (용융 흐름) 프로세스. 또한 이산 요소법 (DEM)을 사용하여 무작위 분산 분말 베드를 생성했습니다 (Lee and Zhang 2016 ; Wu et al. 2018 ). 이 모델은 분말 규모의 L-PBF 공정을 시뮬레이션했습니다 (Khairallah et al. 2016) 메조 스케일 (Khairallah 및 Anderson 2014 ), 단일 트랙 (Leitz et al. 2017 )에서 다중 트랙 (Foroozmehr et al. 2016 ) 및 다중 레이어 (Huang, Khamesee 및 Toyserkani 2019 )로.

그러나 결과적인 표면 거칠기를 결정하는 오버행 영역의 용융 풀 역학은 문헌에서 거의 관심을받지 못했습니다. 솔리드 영역의 L-PBF에 대한 기존 시뮬레이션 모델이 어느 정도 참조가 될 수 있지만 오버행 영역과 솔리드 영역 간의 용융 풀 역학에는 상당한 차이가 있습니다. 오버행 영역에서 용융 금속은 분말 입자 사이의 틈새로 아래로 흘러 용융 풀이 다공성 분말 베드가 제공하는 약한 지지체 아래로 가라 앉습니다. 이것은 중력과 표면 장력의 영향이 용융 풀의 결과적인 모양 / 크기를 결정하는 데 중요하며, 결과적으로 오버행 영역의 마이크로 스케일 형태의 진화에 중요합니다. 또한 분말 입자 사이의 공극, 열 조건 (예 : 에너지 흡수,2019 ; Karimi et al. 2020 ; 노래와 영 2020 ). 표면 거칠기는 (마이크로) 형상 편차를 증가시킬뿐만 아니라 주기적 하중 동안 미세 균열의 시작 지점 역할을함으로써 기계적 강도를 저하시킵니다 (Günther et al. 2018 ). 오버행 영역의 높은 표면 거칠기는 (마이크로) 정확도 / 품질에 대한 엄격한 요구 사항이있는 부품 제조에서 L-PBF의 적용을 제한합니다.

본 연구는 실험 및 시뮬레이션 연구를 사용하여 오버행 영역 (지지물없이 제작)의 미세 형상 편차 형성 메커니즘과 표면 거칠기의 기원을 체계적이고 포괄적으로 조사합니다. 결합 된 DEM-CFD 시뮬레이션 모델은 경계 트랙 윤곽, 분말 접착 및 뒤틀림 변형의 효과를 고려하여 오버행 영역의 용융 풀 역학과 표면 형태의 형성 메커니즘을 나타 내기 위해 개발되었습니다. 표면 거칠기 R의 시뮬레이션 및 단일 요인 L-PBF 인쇄 실험을 사용하여 오버행 각도의 함수로 연구됩니다. 용융 풀의 침몰과 관련된 오버행 영역에서 분말 접착의 세 가지 메커니즘이 식별되고 자세히 설명됩니다. 마지막으로, 인쇄 된 오버행 영역에서 높은 표면 거칠기 문제를 완화 할 수 있는 잠재적 솔루션에 대해 간략하게 설명합니다.

Abstract

이 연구에서는 비드 운동과 유체 흐름에 미치는 영향에 대한 자세한 분석을 제공하기 위해 연속 흐름 마이크로 채널 내부의 비드 자기 영동에 대한 수치 흐름 중심 연구를 보고합니다.

수치 모델은 Lagrangian 접근 방식을 포함하며 영구 자석에 의해 생성 된 자기장의 적용에 의해 혈액에서 비드 분리 및 유동 버퍼로의 수집을 예측합니다.

다음 시나리오가 모델링됩니다. (i) 운동량이 유체에서 점 입자로 처리되는 비드로 전달되는 단방향 커플 링, (ii) 비드가 점 입자로 처리되고 운동량이 다음으로부터 전달되는 양방향 결합 비드를 유체로 또는 그 반대로, (iii) 유체 변위에서 비드 체적의 영향을 고려한 양방향 커플 링.

결과는 세 가지 시나리오에서 비드 궤적에 약간의 차이가 있지만 특히 높은 자기력이 비드에 적용될 때 유동장에 상당한 변화가 있음을 나타냅니다.

따라서 높은 자기력을 사용할 때 비드 운동과 유동장의 체적 효과를 고려한 정확한 전체 유동 중심 모델을 해결해야 합니다. 그럼에도 불구하고 비드가 중간 또는 낮은 자기력을 받을 때 계산적으로 저렴한 모델을 안전하게 사용하여 자기 영동을 모델링 할 수 있습니다.

Abstract

Several different interfacial forces affect the free surface of liquid metals during metal additive manufacturing processes. One of these is thermo-capillarity or the so-called Marangoni effect. In this work, a novel framework is introduced for unraveling the effects of thermo-capillarity on the melt pool morphology/size and its thermo-fluid conditions during the Laser Powder Bed Fusion (L-PBF) process. In this respect, a multi-physics numerical model is developed based on the commercial software package Flow-3D. The model is verified and validated via mesh-independency analysis and by comparison of the predicted melt pool profile with those from lab-scale single-track experiments. Two sets of parametric studies are carried out to find the role of both positive and inverse thermo-capillarity on the melt pool shape and its thermal and fluid dynamics conditions. The thermo-fluid conditions of the melt pool are further investigated using appropriate dimensionless numbers. The results show that for the higher Marangoni number cases, the melt pool temperature drops, and at the same time, the temperature field becomes more uniform. Also, it is shown that at higher Marangoni numbers, temperature gradients decrease, thus reducing the role of conduction in the heat transfer from the melt pool. Furthermore, for the first time, a novel methodology is introduced for the calculation of the melt pool’s average Nusselt number. The average Nusselt numbers calculated for the positive and inverse thermo-capillarity are then used for finding the effective liquid conductivity required for a computationally cheaper pure heat conduction simulation. The results show that the deviation between the average melt pool temperature, using the pure conduction model with effective conductivity, and the one obtained from the advanced fluid dynamics model is less than 2%.

Korea Abstract

금속 적층 제조 공정 중 액체 금속의 자유 표면에 여러 가지 다른 계면력이 영향을 미칩니다. 이들 중 하나는 열 모세관 또는 소위 Marangoni 효과입니다.

이 작업에서는 L-PBF (Laser Powder Bed Fusion) 공정 중 용융 풀 형태 / 크기 및 열 유동 조건에 대한 열 모세관의 영향을 밝히기 위한 새로운 프레임워크가 도입되었습니다.

이러한 점에서 상용 소프트웨어 패키지 Flow-3D를 기반으로 다중 물리 수치 모델이 개발되었습니다. 모델은 메쉬 독립 분석을 통해 그리고 예측 된 용융 풀 프로필을 실험실 규모의 단일 트랙 실험에서 얻은 프로필과 비교하여 검증 및 검증됩니다.

용융 풀 모양과 열 및 유체 역학 조건에 대한 양 및 역 열 모세관의 역할을 찾기 위해 두 세트의 매개 변수 연구가 수행됩니다. 용융 풀의 열 유동 조건은 적절한 무 차원 숫자를 사용하여 추가로 조사됩니다.

결과는 Marangoni 수가 더 높은 경우 용융 풀 온도가 떨어지고 동시에 온도 필드가 더 균일 해짐을 보여줍니다. 또한 Marangoni 수가 높을수록 온도 구배가 감소하여 용융 풀에서 열 전달에서 전도의 역할이 감소하는 것으로 나타났습니다.

또한 용융 풀의 평균 Nusselt 수를 계산하기위한 새로운 방법론이 처음으로 도입되었습니다. 그런 다음 양수 및 역 열 모세관에 대해 계산 된 평균 Nusselt 수는 계산적으로 더 저렴한 순수 열 전도 시뮬레이션에 필요한 효과적인 액체 전도도를 찾는 데 사용됩니다. 결과는 유효 전도도가 있는 순수 전도 모델을 사용한 평균 용융 풀 온도와 고급 유체 역학 모델에서 얻은 편차가 2 % 미만임을 보여줍니다.

Abstract

The development of water waves through submerged and non-submerged vegetation is accompanied by a loss of energy through the resistive force of the vegetation, resulting in a decrease in wave height. Wave damping by vegetation is a function of cover characteristics such as geometry and structure, immersion ratio, density, hardness, and spatial arrangement, as well as wave conditions such as input wave height, duration, and wave direction. In the present study, the effect of geometric arrangement of vegetation with variable height on wave damping has been investigated using the Flow 3D numerical model. For this purpose, a channel with a length of 480 cm and a width of 10.8 cm, which has been previously used by Cox and Wu (2015) to study the effect of plant density with variable height on wave damping, is modeled. The operation of the three arrangements, including long to short arrangement, short to long arrangement, and zigzag arrangement, is examined under four different waves, all of which are linear waves. It should be noted that in this study, wave height is considered as an damping index. The results obtained by measuring the height of the waves at four different points along the channel show that the behavior of the waves in dealing with different arrangements follows a fixed pattern and also changes in the geometry of the vegetation can greatly lead to Increase the damping of the waves. The results show that a change in height arrangement can cause a change in damping of up to 7.1%.

물에 잠긴 초목과 물에 잠기지 않은 초목을 통한 물결의 발달은 초목의 저항력을 통한 에너지 손실을 동반하여 파고가 감소합니다. 식생에 의한 파동감쇠는 기하와 구조, 몰입도, 밀도, 경도, 공간배열 등 커버 특성과 입력파동 높이, 지속시간, 파동방향 등의 파동조건의 함수입니다.

본 연구에서는 Flow 3D 수치 모델을 사용하여 가변 높이 식물이 파동 댐핑에 미치는 기하학적 배치가 조사되었습니다. 이를 위해 Cox와 Wu (2015)가 이전에 파동 댐핑에 대한 가변 높이의 발전소 밀도가 미치는 영향을 연구하기 위해 사용한 길이 480cm, 폭 10.8cm의 채널을 모델링합니다.

장파에서 단파, 단파에서 장파까지, 지그재그 배열을 포함한 세 가지 배열의 작동은 4개의 다른 파장에서 조사됩니다. 모두 선형파입니다.

본 연구에서는 파고가 감쇠 지수로 간주된다는 점에 유의해야 합니다.

채널을 따라 네 곳의 서로 다른 지점에서 파도의 높이를 측정하여 얻은 결과는 다른 배열을 다루는 파도의 동작이 고정된 패턴을 따르며 또한 초목의 기하학적인 변화가 파도의 감쇠를 증가 시키는 것으로 크게 이어질 수 있다는 것을 보여줍니다.

결과는 높이 배열의 변화가 최대 7.1%의 댐핑 변화를 일으킬 수 있음을 보여줍니다.

Abstract

During the industrial process of semi-solid forming (or thixoforming) of alloy slurries, typically the operation of die filling takes around 0.1s.
During this time period the alloy slug is transformed from a solid-like structure capable of maintaining its shape, into a liquid-like slurry able
to fill a complex die cavity: this involves a decrease in viscosity of some 6 orders of magnitUde. Many attempts to measure thixotropic breakdown experimentally in alloy slurries have relied on the use of concentric cylindrical viscometers in which viscosity changes have been followed after shear rate changes over times above 1s to in excess of 1000 s, which have little relevance to actual processing conditions and therefore to modelling of flow in industrial practice. The present paper is an attempt to abstract thixotropic breakdown rates from rapid compression tests between parallel plates moving together at velocities of around 1mis, similar to industrial conditions. From this analysis, a model of slurry flow has been developed in which rapid thixotropic breakdown of the slurry occurs at high shear rates.

합금 슬러리의 반고체 성형 (또는 틱소 성형)의 산업 공정 동안, 일반적으로 다이 충진 작업은 약 0.1 초가 걸립니다.
이 기간 동안 합금 슬러그는 모양을 유지할 수있는 고체와 같은 구조에서 액체와 같은 슬러리로 변형됩니다.
복잡한 다이 캐비티를 채우기 위해 : 이것은 약 6 차의 마그 니트 점도 감소를 포함합니다. 합금 슬러리에서 실험적으로 요 변성 파괴를 측정하려는 많은 시도는 전단 속도가 1 초 이상에서 1000 초 이상으로 변화 한 후 점도 변화가 뒤 따르는 동심원 원통형 점도계의 사용에 의존하여 실제 가공 조건과는 거의 관련이 없습니다. 따라서 산업 현장에서 흐름 모델링에. 본 논문은 산업 조건과 유사하게 약 1mis의 속도로 함께 이동하는 평행 판 사이의 빠른 압축 테스트에서 요 변성 파괴 율을 추상화하려는 시도입니다. 이 분석으로부터 슬러리의 급속한 요 변성 분해가 높은 전단 속도에서 발생하는 슬러리 흐름 모델이 개발되었습니다.

Introduction

기존의 다이캐스팅을 위한 다이 설계는 과거에 예비 테스트 및 조정과 함께 축적 된 실무 경험의 문제였으며, 단기 실행, 랩, 다공성 등과 같은 결함을 제거하기 위해 다이 캐스트 제품을 검사했습니다. 이것은 모두 비용이 많이 드는 절차입니다.

시간과 비용, 그리고 프로세스의 컴퓨터 모델링은 이를 줄이거 나 없애기 위해 많은 운영자에 의해 개발되었습니다. 반고체 가공 (thixoforming)에서는 반고체 합금 슬러리의 전단이 내부 구조를 파괴하여 충전 작업 중 시간이 지남에 따라 점도가 낮아짐으로 발생하는 비 뉴턴 점도로 인해 모델링 문제가 더욱 어려워집니다.

시스템 전체에서 균일하지 않습니다. 충전 중에 발생하는 추가 응고로 인해 문제가 더욱 복잡해집니다. 빠른 충전으로 인해 이 단계에서 매우 작은 것으로 간주되기 때문에 현재 분석에서는 무시되었습니다.

우리 모델의 또 다른 한계는 슬러리가 균질한 물질로 거동 한다는 가정이며, 이는 어느 지점에서나 단일 점도로 설명될 수 있습니다. 이것은 빠른 전단의 고려 사항과 정상적인 요 변형성 조건 내에서 0.6 미만의 고형분을 분별하는 것으로 제한합니다.

Conclusions

y에서 전단 된 반고체 슬러리의 틱소 트로픽 분해에 대한 속도 방정식은 다음과 같은 형식으로 제안됩니다. T = l / (a ​​+ uym), 여기서 T는 급속 분해 또는 유사 정상 상태 구조에 대한 특성 시간이며, 밴드 m은 상수입니다. 이 관계는 제한된 범위의 전단 속도에서 Sn-Pb 합금의 전단 속도 점프에 의해 실험적으로 확인되었습니다.

이 파괴율 방정식은 AI-Si 합금의 반고체 슬러그에 대한 빠른 압축 테스트에서 실험적으로 얻은 힘-변위 곡선을 시뮬레이션하기 위해 FLOW-3D® (버전 8.2 : FlowScience Inc.)에 도입되었습니다. 담금 시간과 다른 압축 속도에서. 이 분석의 결과는 모든 경우에 요 변성 거동이 관련되어 있음을 나타내지만, 5 분 동안 담근 후 (산업 관행에서와 같이) 구조가 크게 분해되었으며 초기에는 낮은 전단 속도 영역에서 흐름이 뉴턴에 가깝습니다.

파괴율은 100 S-I 이상의 전단율에서 극적으로 증가하는 것으로 가정 됩니다. 이 예측은 높은 전단 속도에서 더 세심한 작업에 의해 테스트되어야 하지만 평균 전단 속도가 1300 sol까지 생성된 드롭 단조 실험에 의해 뒷받침되는 것으로 보입니다 [7].

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.

Abstract

방파제 설계시 항만 내 수역 및 접안 시설에서 중대한 파도 발생을 배제 할 필요가 있다. 이 기사는 항구 지역의 물 이동 계산 결과를 제시합니다. 항구 입구의 위치와 주어진 물체의 크기에 대한 가장 안전한 옵션이 확인되었습니다. FLOW – 3D 프로그램을 사용하여 항구 수역의 예비 배치 단계에서 계획되고 건설적인 솔루션을 선택할 가능성이 입증되었습니다.

Introduction

항구를 설계 할 때 계류선의 가장 합리적인 구성과 항구 수역의 레이아웃을 선택하여 항구의 영토를 배치하는 것이 필요합니다. 러시아 연방의 항구 수역 배치는 항구 수역 요소에 대한 사양을 포함하는 해로, 페어웨이 및 기동 구역에 대한 설계 표준의 요구 사항에 따라 수행됩니다 [1, 2].

항구 물은 파도, 퇴적물 축적 및 얼음으로부터 보호되어야 합니다. 항구 계획을 작성할 때, 선박의 기동 및 연안 계류 중뿐만 아니라 선적 및 하역 및 기타 항구 운영 중에 선박 계류에 대한 정상적인 조건이 생성되도록 파도로부터 수역을 보호하는 정도를 제공해야 합니다.

설계 결정은 새로운 포트를 설계하거나 기존 포트를 개발할 때 물리적 또는 수학적 모델링을 기반으로 합니다 [2]. 항구 수역에서 계산 된 물 흐름의 매개 변수는 수문 기상 조사, 장기 현장 관찰 및 실험실 연구의 결과를 기반으로 하도록 권장됩니다.

공학 수문 기상 측량 데이터가 불충분하면 계산 방법을 기반으로 설계 폭풍의 파도 매개 변수를 결정할 수 있습니다. 사용된 계산 방법이 국제 실무에서 동일한 목적으로 채택된 방법 (모델)에 부합하는지 표시하는 것이 좋습니다 [3].
