Abstract [en]

Forming nickel-based superalloy aero-engine components is a challenging process, largely because of the risk of high degree of springback and issues with formability. In the forming tests conducted on alloy 718 at room temperature, open fractures are observed in the drawbead regions, which are not predicted while evaluating the formability using the traditional forming-limit diagram(FLD). This highlights the importance of an accurate prediction of failure during forming as, in some cases, may severely influence the springback and thereby the accuracy of the predicted shape distortions, leading the final shape of the formed component out of tolerance. In this study, the generalised incremental stress-state dependent damage model (GISSMO) is coupled with the isotropic von Mises and the anisotropic Barlat Yld2000-2D yield criteria to predict the material failure in the forming simulations conducted on alloy 718 using LS-DYNA. Their effect on the predicted effective plastic strains and shape deviations is discussed. The failure and instability strains needed to calibrate the GISSMO are directly obtained from digital image correlation (DIC) measurements in four different specimen geometries i.e. tensile, plane strain, shear, and biaxial. The damage distribution over the drawbeads is measured using a non-linear acoustic technique for validation purposes. The numerical simulations accurately predict failure at the same regions as those observed in the experimental forming tests. The expected distribution of the damage over the drawbeads is in accordance with the experimental measurements. The results highlight the potential of considering DIC to calibrate the GISSMO in combination with an anisotropic material model for forming simulations in alloy 718.

Abstract [en]

The reduction of fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions are currently a key factor for the aviation industry because of major concerns about climate change and more restrictive environmental laws. One way to reduce both fuel consumption and CO2 emissions is by significantly decreasing the weight of vehicles while increasing the efficiency of the engine. To meet these requirements, the European aero-engine industry is continuously focusing on improved engine designs and alternative manufacturing methods for load-carrying structures in advanced materials, such as titanium and nickel-base superalloys. These new manufacturing methods involve sheet-metal parts, small castings, and forgings assembled using welding, enabling flexible designs where each part is made of the most suitable materials and states, with advantages such as reduced product cost, lower weight, and increased engine efficiency.

In this thesis, a manufacturing process chain including forming and welding in two nickel-base superalloys, alloy 718 and Haynes® 282®, is studied. The aim of this work is to determine which aspects within the material and process are the most relevant to accurately predict the amount of shape distortions that occur along the manufacturing chain. The effect of the forming temperature on the predicted springback is included. The results are compared with experimental cold and hot forming tests with a subsequent welding procedure. During forming of a double-curved component in alloy 718 at room temperature, open fractures are observed in the drawbead regions, which could not be predicted while evaluating the formability of the material based on Nakazima tests and forming limit curves (FLC). The generalised incremental stress-state dependent damage model (GISSMO) is calibrated and coupled with the anisotropic Barlat Yld2000-2D material model to accurately predict material failure during forming using LS-DYNA. The mechanical properties of alloy 718 are determined via uniaxial tensile, plane strain, shear, and biaxial tests at 20 °C. The deformations are continuously evaluated using the digital image correlation (DIC) system ARAMIS™. Numerical predictions are able to accurately predict failure on the same regions as observed during the experimental forming tests. Comparisons of the distribution of damage on one of the drawbeads, between simulations and damage measurements by acoustic emission, indicate that higher damage values correspond to bigger micro cracks. The history from the sheet-metal forming procedure, i.e. residual stresses, strains, element thickness, and geometry, is used as the input for the FE analysis of a subsequent welding procedure of a strip geometry in alloy 718 and Haynes® 282®. A comprehensive characterization of the elasto-plastic properties of both alloys between 20 and 1000 °C is included. Other temperature-dependent properties are extracted from JMatPro-v9 for the corresponding specific batches. The results from the simulations show that the welding procedure further increases the shape distortions over the part. Encouraging agreement was found between the model predictions and the results of forming and welding tests in alloy 718. The findings underscore the importance of including the material history and accurate process conditions along the manufacturing chain to both the prediction accuracy of accumulated shape distortions, and to the potential for the industry.

The work also comprises hot forming of the double-curved component in alloy 718 and Haynes® 282®. The presence and nature of serrations due to the dynamic strain aging (DSA) phenomenon between 300 and 800 °C is studied. Microstructural observations are consistent with the behaviour of the material at the different temperatures tested. The residual stresses obtained from the hot forming simulations are transformed based on the stress-relaxation tests performed at high temperatures ranging from 700 to 1000 °C. The results show the importance of using the novel modelling approach combining the anisotropic Barlat Yld2000-2D material model with the thermo-mechanical properties and stress-relaxation behaviour of the material to predict the final geometry of the component with high accuracy. A welding simulation of a bi-metallic strip geometry obtained from the hot formed double-curved component is performed numerically. The effect of the two superalloys on the shape distortions over the part is discussed.

Abstract [en]

Lightweight design has become increasingly in focus for the manufacturing industry. Global environmental challenges, goals and legislations imply that lighter and sustainable products are imperative to remain competitive. One example is stamped products made of aluminum alloys which are of interest to the automotive industry, where lightweight designs are essential. In order to increase formability and to produce more complex geometries in stamped aluminum components there is a need to develop hot forming techniques. The Finite Element Method (FEM) has enabled important advances in the study and design of competitive manufacturing procedures for metal parts. Predicting the final geometry of a component is a complex task, especially if the forming procedure occurs at elevated temperatures. This work presents selected results from thermo-mechanical material testing procedures, FE-analyses and forming validation tests in AA6016 material. The material tests are used to determine the thermo-mechanical anisotropic properties, strain rate sensitivity and formability (Forming Limit Curves, FLC) at temperatures up to 490°C. Stretch-bending tests are performed to compare predicted results with experimental observations such as punch force, strain levels, thinning, forming temperatures, springback and failure. It was found that the heat-treatment and forming at elevated temperatures substantially increased formability and that measured responses could in general be predicted if care was taken to model the initial blank temperatures, heat transfer and thermo-mechanical material properties. The room temperature case confirms the importance of considering anisotropy.

Abstract [en]

The reduction of fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions are currently a key factor for the aviation industry due to major concerns about climate change and more restrictive environmental laws. One way to reduce both fuel consumption and CO2 emissions is by significantly decreasing the vehicle’s weight while increasing engine's efficiency. In order to meet these requirements, the European aero engine industry is continuously focusing on alternative manufacturing methods for load carrying structures in advanced materials, such as titanium and nickel-based superalloys. Alternatively to traditional large-scale single castings, new manufacturing methods involve sheet metal parts, small castings and forgings assembled by welding. These new manufacturing methods allow more flexible designs in which each part is made of the most suitable material state, leading to several advantages such as reduction of product cost and weight while increasing engine's efficiency. Nickel-based superalloys are widely used in the aero engine industry, typically constituting up to 50% of the total weight of the aircraft engine. Due to their excellent material properties at high temperatures in severe corrosive environments, these superalloys are employed most extensively in the hot sections of gas turbine engines for both military and civil aircrafts with running temperatures up to 650°C.

In this thesis, a manufacturing process chain including forming and welding in the nickelbased superalloy 718 is studied. The main focus in the work lies on determining the thermomechanical properties, modelling and simulation of cold forming, study forming limits based on Nakazima tests for forming limit curves (FLC) and applying a damage and failure criterion. The work also comprises a brief study on hot forming. Finally, modelling of a subsequent welding procedure is included where residual stresses from the forming simulation are used to predict shape distortions due to the welding procedure. The results are compared with experimental observations.

The cold forming procedure of a double-curved component made of alloy 718 is studied using FE-analyses and forming tests. The same geometry was used to produce a hot forming tool. During forming tests at room temperature, micro cracks and open cracks were observed in the draw bead regions, not indicated when formability is assessed using a forming limit curve (FLC). Standard material models such as von Mises or Barlat Yld2000-2D were not capable of accurately predict the behaviour of the material after the point of diffuse necking, making the prediction of damage and failure during forming a challenge. The GISSMO damage model was therefore calibrated and used to predict material failure in forming of alloy 718. Tensile, plane strain, shear and biaxial tests at room temperature are performed up to fracture and continuously evaluated using Digital Image Correlation (DIC) by ARAMIS™. In this work, the GISSMO damage model is coupled with the anisotropic Barlat Yld2000-2D material model for forming simulations in alloy 718 at room temperature using LS-DYNA. Numerical predictions are able to accurately predict failure on the same regions as observed during the experimental forming tests. Comparisons of the distribution of damage on one of the draw beads between simulations and damage measurements by acoustic emission indicate that higher damage values correspond to bigger micro cracks. Numerical FE-predictions of the cold forming and subsequent welding procedure shows that the welding procedure further increases the shape distortions. This was found to agree with experimental observations.

Abstract [en]

Nickel-based superalloys are primarily used in the hot sections of aircraft engines because they can maintain their mechanical properties and chemical stabilities at high temperatures under severe corrosive environments i.e. for a long time. In order to simulate forming procedures in Alloy 718 sheets, the GISSMO damage and failure model is coupled with both isotropic von Mises and anisotropic Barlat YLD2000 material models in the finite element code LS-DYNA. In this study, the calibration of the GISSMO model for forming simulations at room temperature is discussed. The calibration requires failure strains for different stress states as a function of triaxiality, which are obtained by testing six different specimen geometries up to fracture. Numerical predictions will be compared with experimental observations from forming tests.

Abstract [en]

The manufacturing of components for aero engine structures from a flat sheet to the final shape usually requires several steps that may introduce residual stresses and shape distortions in the part. Depending on the magnitude, sign and distribution with respect to the stresses induced by the service load, the remaining stresses may affect the service life of a component, especially when submitted to cyclic loading. Nowadays, several types of software that have the ability to predict the residual stresses and the final shape of a component subjected to various process steps are available. However, literature shows a lack of comparison studies among different software tools for multi-step simulations of a manufacturing process. In this study, the manufacturing process chain of an aerospace component including forming, welding and heat treatment in the nickel-based superalloy 718 is modelled and simulated using the two finite element software codes LS-DYNA and MSC.Marc. The results from the displacement of the blank in the punch stroke direction, the equivalent plastic strain and the von Mises stress are compared between both FE codes. The displacement of the blank after forming is slightly higher in LS-DYNA compared to MSC.Marc, as well as the equivalent plastic strain and the von Mises stress values. This tendency is also observed after trimming and welding. It can also be noted that the distribution of both strains and stresses on the trimmed and welded parts varies between the two compared codes, presumably due to the choice of different solver options, explicit and implicit.

Abstract [en]

The finite-element method (FEM) has considerably contributed to the development of more advanced manufacturing methods for metal structures. The prediction of the final shape of a component is of great interest to the manufacturing industry. In addition to its inherent difficulties, the presence of various types of processes in the manufacturing chain may dramatically increase the level of demand. Therefore, including all steps of the manufacturing process in the simulations is key to being successful. This has been done for a long time in the stamping industry, which involves sequences of forming, trimming, and springback. However, more complex manufacturing procedures, that include assembling of formed parts with forgings and castings via welding, have been modeled with simplifications, resulting in a reduced prediction accuracy. This hinders the compensation of accumulated shape distortions based on the simulation results. One such example is the fabrication of aero-engine structures, in which the history from the forming procedure has not been considered in subsequent welding and heat treatment analyses. In the present study, a double-shaped part manufactured from alloy 718 is formed at 20 °C and laser-welded using the bead-on-plate procedure. The coupling of different manufacturing analyses, including cold forming, trimming, result mapping, welding, cooling, and springback, is achieved using LS-DYNA. Additionally, the effect of adding the GISSMO damage model in the forming simulation is studied. The results of the forming analysis are used as inputs for the material model *MAT_CWM in the welding simulation. The anisotropic thermomechanical properties of alloy 718 are determined at temperatures up to 1000 °C. Encouraging agreement is found between the model predictions and the results of forming and welding tests. The findings underscore the importance of including the material history and accurate process conditions along the manufacturing chain to both the prediction accuracy of shape distortions, and to the potential of the industry.
