Microchannel tube (MCT) is widely employed in industry due to its excellent efficiency in heat transfer. An MCT is commonly produced through extrusion within a porthole die, where severe plastic deformation is inevitably involved. Moreover, the plastic deformation, which dramatically affects the final property of the MCT, varies significantly from location to location. In order to understand the development of the microstructure and its effect on the final property of the MCT, the viscoplastic self-consistent (VPSC) model, together with the finite element analysis and the flow line model, is employed in the current study. The flow line model is used to reproduce the local velocity gradient within the complex porthole die, while VPSC model is employed to predict the evolution of the microstructure accordingly. In addition, electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) measurement and mechanical tests are used to characterize the evolution of the microstructure and the property of the MCT. The simulation results agree well with the corresponding experimental ones. The influence of the material鈥檚 flow line on the evolution of the orientation and morphology of the grains, and the property of the produced MCT are discussed in detail.

Abstract null null With the development of electrified railways and high-voltage transmission lines, it is often inevitable that buried metal structures are subjected to interference from the alternating current (AC) induced by the neighboring power facilities. Commonly found in soil, sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB) have the capability to accelerate metal corrosion. In this paper, with electrochemical methods, surface analysis techniques, and weight-loss test, the influence of AC and SRB on the ...

The structure type of porthole die has a crucial impact on metal flow balance in die cavities, strength of seam weld, and die strength. At present, there was little industrial case for the application of protection-type porthole die. In this study, a novel combined porthole die which includes protection, upper, and lower dies was designed to manufacture a multi-cavity and thin-walled profile. The plastic deformation behavior and flow velocity distribution of metal in die cavities were examined b...

Polycrystalline materials can have complex anisotropic properties depending on their crystallographic texture and crystal structure. In this study, we use resonant ultrasound spectroscopy (RUS) to nondestructively quantify the elastic anisotropy in extruded aluminum alloy 1100-O, an inherently low-anisotropy material. Further, we show that RUS can be used to indirectly provide a description of the material鈥檚 texture, which in the present case is found to be transversely isotropic. By determining...

Porthole die extrusion is used to produce complex hollow aluminum cross-sections for automotive applications. In a porthole die, the material is first divided into multiple streams which are separated by a bridge, before rejoining in the weld chamber and finally passing through the die orifice. The rejoining of the material in the weld chamber produces lines known as weld lines in the final extruded product. The microstructure along the weld line and its associated quality are strongly influence...

Bubble pressure and elastic response in helium-irradiated tungsten are systematically investigated in this study. An anomalous shape effect is found that the radial normal stress and mean stress distributions around a nanosized void or bubble are far from the spherical symmetry, which is ascribed to polyhedral geometry characteristic of the nanosized bubble and physical mechanism transition from crystal surfaces dominated to the surface ledges and triple junctions dominated. Molecular simulation...

Electrospun fibrous scaffolds combined with bioactive factors can display impressive performance as an ideal wound dressing, since they can mimic the composition and physicochemical properties of the extracellular matrix (ECM). The aim of this study was to fabricate a new composite biomaterial (IGF1-DA and Os-DA-modified PLGA electrospun fibrous scaffold) for wound healing, using a rat model for experimental evaluation. A small pentapeptide tag composed of DA-Lys-DA-Lys-DA residues was introduce...
