Article
Modeling nonlinear materials with arbitrary microstructures and loading paths is crucial in structural analyses with heterogeneous materials with uncertainty. However, it is computationally prohibitive because (1) fine meshes are required to resolve the microstructures for nonlinear simulations, (2) enormous model evaluations are expected to simula...
Article
We present a data-driven nonlinear uncertainty quantification and propagation framework to study the microstructure-induced stochastic performance of unidirectional (UD) carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) composites. The proposed approach integrates (1) microscopic image characterization, (2) stochastic microstructure reconstruction, and (3) ef...
Preprint
Full-text available
In the paper, we present an integrated data-driven modeling framework based on process modeling, material homogenization, mechanistic machine learning, and concurrent multiscale simulation. We are interested in the injection-molded short fiber reinforced composites, which have been identified as key material systems in automotive, aerospace, and el...
Article
Matrix-free polymer-grafted nanocrystals, called assembled hairy nanoparticles (aHNPs), can significantly enhance the thermomechanical performance of nanocomposites by overcoming nanoparticle dispersion challenges and achieving stronger interfacial interactions through grafted polymer chains. However, effective strategies to improve both the mechan...
Article
Predicting the mechanical behavior of the chopped carbon fiber Sheet Molding Compound (SMC) due to spatial variations in local material properties is critical for the structural performance analysis but is computationally challenging. Such spatial variations are induced by the material flow in the compression molding process. In this work, a new mu...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
To advance vehicle lightweighting, chopped carbon fiber sheet molding compound (SMC) is identified as a promising material to replace metals. However, there are no effective tools and methods to predict the mechanical property of the chopped carbon fiber SMC due to the high complexity in microstructure features and the anisotropic properties. In th...
Article
Laser welding with filler wire, performed by welding robots, provides high stability and efficiency for welding thick plates used in shipbuilding, electrical engineering and nuclear industry. The route planning methodology is of central importance in this process. Firstly, build a welding system suitable for thick plate laser building with filler w...
Article
Laser welding of thick plates has been used in automobile and shipping industry owing to its focusing heat input, little welding deformation, and high productivity. Using narrow-gap technique can decrease the filling volumes of wire and increase the welding efficiency. However, its process is more complicated since it introduces filler wire to narr...
