3-Dimensional CFD modelling of flow round a threaded friction stir welding tool profile
Abstract This paper describes the application of the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) code, FLUENT, to modelling the 3-dimensional metal flow in friction stir welding (FSW). A standard threadedExpand
Materials: Engineering, Science, Processing and Design
This is the essential materials engineering text and resource for students developing skills and understanding of materials properties and selection for engineering applications. Taking a uniqueExpand
A process model for age hardening of aluminium alloys—I. The model
Abstract Process modelling techniques are used to describe the changes in yield strength due to age hardening of heat-treatable aluminium alloys. A model for the isothermal ageing curve is developed.Expand
Microstructural modelling in metals processing
Abstract Modelling of microstructure evolution has long been part of physical metallurgy, both in the laboratory and in industry. Until recently, however, physically-based modelling was limited toExpand
A process model for age hardening of aluminium alloys—II. Applications of the model
The process model for ageing of aluminium alloys, developed in Part I [H. R. Shercliff and M. F. Ashby, Acta metall. mater.38, 1789 (1990)], is applied to a number of heat treatments, establishing aExpand
Development of Trivex friction stir welding tool Part 2 – three-dimensional flow modelling
Abstract This paper describes the application of the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) code, FLUENT, to modelling the metal flow in friction stir welding (FSW). Building on a two-dimensional model,Expand
The mechanical properties of natural materials. II. Microstructures for mechanical efficiency
Many natural materials have exceptionally high values of the mechanical performance indices described in the previous, companion paper. For beams and plates of a given stiffness or strength, or for aExpand
Model for predicting heat generation and temperature in friction stir welding from the material properties
Abstract This paper describes a simple numerical model for predicting the heat generation in friction stir welding (FSW) from the material hot deformation and thermal properties, the processExpand
Diagrams for laser materials processing
Abstract An analytical heat flow model is used to identify dimensionless parameter groups which determine the temperature field produced in a material by a scanning laser beam. The groups are used toExpand
CFD modelling of friction stir welding of thick plate 7449 aluminium alloy
Abstract CFD modelling of friction stir welding has been conducted to understand and optimise the welding of thick, 7449 aluminium alloy for aerospace applications. The aim is to produce highExpand
