Designing Fatigue Experiment for Investigating Polymer Specimens

Abstract

The using of „technical materials” speeded up lately. Because of this, parts are being designed from plastic, which have to sustain extreme stresses. The proper definition of material qualities is expensive; despite in every phase of designing, we need it to be done perfectly. In every industrial section it is important to work with exact material qualities, especially areas where there are strict safety rules (in connection with the lifespan). In this work we will introduce how to design suitable fatigue stress for the plastic samples and how to define the fatigue qualities of the various materials of Rapid Prototyping. This information could be important to change damaged equipments and parts in the military. Due to this, we performed the design of fatigue tests to help the designers elaborate military, safety improvements and proper renewing technologies.

CFD and FEM Model of an Underwater Vehicle Propeller

Abstract

Within the framework of the project for design and optimization of the Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV), research on its propulsion has been carried out. Te entire project was supported by CFD and FEM calculations taking into account the characteristics of the underwater vehicle. One of the tasks was to optimize the semi-open duct for horizontal propellers, which provided propulsion and controllability in horizontal plane. In order to create a measurable model of this task it was necessary to analyze numerical methodology of propeller design, along with the structure of a propellers with nozzles and contra-rotating propellers. It was confronted with theoretical solutions which included running of the analyzed propeller near an underwater vehicle. Also preliminary qualitative analyses of a simplified system with contra-rotating propellers and a semi-open duct were carried out. Te obtained results enabled to make a decision about the ROVs duct form. Te rapid prototyping SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) method was used to fabricate a physical model of the propeller. As a consequence of this, it was necessary to verify the FEM model of the propeller, which based on the load obtained from the CFD model. Te article contains characteristics of the examined ROV, a theoretical basis of propeller design for the analyzed cases, and the results of CFD and FEM simulations.
