Development and Characterization of Ti/SiC Metal Matrix Nanocomposite Coating with Superior Surface Properties

In this work, a Ti/SiC metal matrix nanocomposite (MMNC) coating was produced on Ti-6Al-4V substrate by Selective Laser Melting (SLM) technique. The MMNC coating had 7% SiC and 93% Ti by volume. It was observed that applying the nanocomposite coating on titanium substrate significantly reduced the wear and coefficient of friction (COF). By applying the coating, 108% improvement in hardness of Ti-6Al-4V substrates was obtained. The MMNC coating also showed a COF of 0.38 as compared to 0.42 for the Ti-6Al-4V substrate.

SPH inlet & outlet boundary conditions for internal flow (dynamically creating/removing particles from computational domain)

Hi All,

I am trying to model internal flows using SPH in Abaqus. The current problem I am running into are the inlet/outlet boundary conditions. I need a way to be able to monitor the inlet and outlet zones and dynamically remove/create nodes (i.e., particles). Here is the process I have in mind.

Surface Pressure in Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics Model

Hi, All: I am working on a fluid structure interaction problem with Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) method in Abaqus. My solid is a deformable structure. I would like to know the pressure on the surface of structure where solid and fluid (particles) contact with each other. I wonder how could I output this vailable from the SPH model in Abaqus. Thanks a lot in advance for any help!
