Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

A new process of 2-turn equal channel angular extrusion (ECAE) was simulated by finite element method with a view to providing an insight into the mechanics of the process. The stress results obtained gave indication of expected forces and tool contact stresses. Plastic flow sensitivity analysis, with respect to geometrical features of the die, enabled process and tool design guidelines to be formulated. Two methods of increasing productivity of 2-turn ECAE were presented and simulated using finite element method. Physical modelling experiments with wax billets validated the results of numerical simulation and also gave indication of possible problems with the real process.
