Numerical study of advanced friction modelling for sheet metal forming: influence of the die local roughness
(Elsevier Ltd., 2022)
Numerical simulation of sheet metal forming processes has become indispensable in the last decades. Although the complexity of the frictional behaviour is identified as a key factor for the prediction accuracy, the industry ...
The Interaction between the Sheet/Tool Surface Texture and the Friction/Galling Behaviour on Aluminium Deep Drawing Operations
The increasing demands for lightweight design in the transport industry have led to an extensive use of lightweight materials such as aluminium alloys. The forming of aluminium sheets however presents significant challenges ...
A novel formulation for radial fretting wear: Application to false brinelling in thrust bearings
(Elsevier Ltd., 2021)
Radial fretting is defined as the damage caused by the relative motion of a ball under a variable normal load. The conducted experimental tests proved the existence of this damage even in contacting bodies with similar ...
Bactericidal Surfaces: An Emerging 21st Century Ultra-Precision Manufacturing and Materials Puzzle
(AIP Publishing, 2021)
Progress made by materials scientists in recent years has greatly helped the field of ultra-precision manufacturing. Ranging from healthcare to electronics components, phenomena such as twinning, dislocation nucleation, ...
Numerical-probabilistic assessment of tempered glass failure based on the generalised local model characterised by annealed plates
Large-scale experimental programmes become unavoidable to characterise the fracture behaviour of glass. Additionally, if non-uniform residual stresses are to be considered, the total effort required increases significantly. ...
