Stress Concentration Resulting from Irregular Shape of Explosively Cladded Materials Connections - Fem Simulation

Open access


The paper contains a numerical analysis of interface zone steel-titanium bimetal obtained by explosive cladding method. Due to the waviness of the zone, and various properties of the constituent material of the materials type contain structural notch. Therefore it is important inter alia in terms of presentation of the results of fatigue are the maximum stresses that occur just in the area of the zone. In the paper the stress concentration factor and the proposed method of modelling the joint zone of a sinusoidal profile, characterized by the same coefficient of stress concentration at the actual profile.
