In the most recent decades the introduction of unconventional machining processes allowed the development of micromachining techniques. In this work, the influence of material microstructures on the micromilling process was investigated. Ti6Al4V alloy was selected as workpiece material since it is a very common material for micro applications and because(More)
Ultrasound treatment of liquid aluminum alloys is known to improve mechanical properties of castings. Aluminum foundry alloys are frequently used for production of parts that undergo severe cavitation erosion phenomena during service. In this paper, the effect of the ultrasound treatment on cavitation erosion resistance of AlSi7 alloy was assessed and(More)
Considering heavy forged parts presented that water spray is an appropriate technique as quenching operation. In general, the rapid cooling causes residual stress field due to the dis-homogeneity of the distribution of temperature in the part and the different microstructural phases. In comparison with other conventional quenching methods, spray-quenching(More)
In this paper, a complete three-dimensional numerical model of mold filling and solidification of steel ingots is presented. The risk of powder entrapment and defects formation during filling is analyzed in detail, demonstrating the importance of using a comprehensive geometry, with trumpet and runner, compared to conventional simplified models. By using a(More)
Research progress on the optimization in order to obtain the value of material constants for a set of creep damage constitutive equations was presented, including (1) a brief review of continuum creep damage modeling and the designs of objective functions; (2) case study reporting the influence of the initial start points on the final results; and (3)(More)
