#### A mathematical model for prediction of austenite phase transformation

, Article Materials Letters ; Volume 58, Issue 10 , 2004 , Pages 1597-1601 ; 0167577X (ISSN) Serajzadeh, S ; Sharif University of Technology
2004
Abstract
In this study, a model is developed to predict austenite phase transformation by means of Avrami's model and the finite element method. For doing so, the Avrami-type rate equation is evaluated with the modified Euler's method to handle the kinetics of phase change under non-isothermal conditions. Also, to simultaneously consider the effect of temperature variations on austenite decomposition, heat conduction equation is solved using a two-dimensional finite element approach. To establish the reliability of theoretical results, a comparison is made between simulated and experimental cooling curves for two grades of carbon steel. © 2003 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved

Abstract
In this paper, the extended finite element method is presented for large elasto-plastic deformation in 3D solid mechanics problems. The X-FEM computational algorithm is presented in the framework of Lagrangian description in order to model the arbitrary interfaces in large deformations. In X-FEM, the material interface is represented independently of element boundaries and the process is accomplished by partitioning the domain with several tetrahedral sub-elements whose Gauss points are used for integration of the domain of elements. The interface between two bodies is modeled by using the X-FEM technique and applying a modified level set enrichment function. In order to simulate the...

, Article International Journal of Material Forming ; Volume 8, Issue 3 , July , 2015 , pp 355-366 ; ISSN: 19606206 Hashemi, R ; Shirin, M. B ; Einolghozati, M ; Assempour, A ; Sharif University of Technology
Abstract
An enhanced unfolding inverse finite element method (IFEM) has been used together with an extended strain-based forming limit diagram (FLD) to develop a fast approach to predict the feasibility of tube hydroforming process of concept part and determine where the failure or defects can occur. In tube hydroforming, the inverse IFEM has been used for estimating the initial length of tube, axial feeding and fluid pressure. The already developed IFEM algorithm used in this study is based on the total deformation theory of plasticity. Although the nature of tube hydroforming is three-dimensional deformation, in this article a modeling technique has been used to perform the computations in...

Abstract
Analysis of concrete shallow funicular shells of rectangular plan with simply supported boundary conditions under static loads is performed using the Ritz method. Double Fourier series with the unknown constant coefficients are assumed for the displacement components of the shell and their unknown coefficients are determined such that the potential energy of the shell becomes minimum. The solution is presented in a simple form and is suitable for practical applications. The responses of rectangular-plan concrete shallow funicular shells including deflections, strains, internal forces, internal moments and stresses could be easily determined using the proposed semi-analytical method.

Abstract
In this study, we present results of a mathematical model in which the governing equations of electroforming process were solved using a robust finite element solver (COMSOL Multiphysics). The effects of different parameters including applied current density, solution electrical conductivity, electrode spacing, and anode height on the copper electroforming process have been investigated. An electroforming experiment using copper electroforming cell was conducted to verify the developed model. The obtained results show that by increasing the applied current density, the electroforming process takes place faster, thereby resulting in a higher thickness of the electroformed layer. In addition,...

Abstract
In this paper the velocity and temperature fields during hot strip rolling are determined using a rigid-viscoplastic finite element method together with a microstructural model for handling dynamic phase transformation during hot deformation. Based on these fields, the strain distributions within the rolled metal at different positions in the deformation zone are estimated. The analysis is capable of considering the effects of metallurgical phase transformations as well as various process parameters such as initial strip temperature, rolling speed, lubrication on the strain inhomogeneity produced during the hot rolling process. To assess the reliability of the theoretical analysis, a...

, M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Eslahi, Reza (Author) ; Khoei, Amir Reza (Supervisor)
Abstract
One of the most important issues in modeling natural phenomena that always takes into consideration is the problem of contact and collision between objects. Finite element method is known as the most basic and commonly used in numerical modeling techniques to simulate the above phenomenon.This method has specific problems such as dependency of this approach to the domain mesh especially near the contact region. Due to the dynamic and complex nature of impact problems in which drastic changes occur in short duration that often deals with large deformations, one of the perennial concerns, is the weaknesses of methods applied to enforce contact constrains, and so it is essential to use an...

#### Development of an inverse finite element method with an initial guess of linear unfolding

, Article Finite Elements in Analysis and Design ; Vol. 79, issue , 2014 , p. 1-8 Kankarani Farahani, M ; Bostan Shirin, M ; Assempour, A ; Sharif University of Technology
Abstract
An inverse finite element method (IFEM) has been developed for estimation of the blank size and prediction of the strain distribution in sheet metal forming. In the inverse method the nodal coordinates in the final shape are known and their corresponding positions on the initial blank should be determined. The developed method deals with logarithmic large strains of membrane triangular elements, virtual work principle and a new approach for friction modeling. This method leads to a system of nonlinear equations which is highly sensitive to the initial guess. In order to avoid the converging problems, especially in the quasi-vertical walls, an appropriate initial guess is introduced. The...

#### Numerical modeling of shear band propagation in porous plastic dilatant materials by XFEM

, Article Theoretical and Applied Fracture Mechanics ; Volume 95 , 2018 , Pages 164-176 ; 01678442 (ISSN) Mikaeili, E ; Liu, P ; Sharif University of Technology
Elsevier B.V  2018
Abstract
This paper studies mixed-mode shear band propagation behaviors in porous plastic dilatant materials by the extended finite element method (XFEM). The Drucker-Prager elastoplastic model is combined with the strong discontinuity method to simulate the dilatant shear band. First, the dissipative nature of the localized area with displacement jump is integrated into the constitutive model by introducing a cohesive law. A new contribution lies that the yielding function is modified in the localized region to calculate the cohesive traction within the framework of the XFEM. The shear band propagation direction is determined by the singularity of the acoustic tensor and the corresponding...

Abstract
Geotechnical problems behavior depends on their interaction with existed fluid phases in their voids. In this research three phase porous media is introduced and it’s governing equations is presented. For solving this set of fully coupled dynamic equations finite element method is applied using elements with displacement and pressure degrees of freedom. Essential drawback of FEM method is in discontinuities modeling. In solid mechanic problems, discontinuity may occur in displacement field, such as crack or contact problems, or in their derivatives, such as multi-material problems. Major soil structures include some internal regions that there are some meshing problems during their FEM...
