Since internal defects in the cross wedge rolling (CWR) process can weaken the integrity of the final product and may ultimately lead to catastrophic failure, it is necessary to investigate the mechanisms of their generation and growth. Using a specially designed CWR experimental apparatus, experiments were performed at more than 50 different operating conditions. The cross-sectional profiles of the workpiece specimens were examined and compared at each condition. Based on the experiments, the influence of three primary parameters in CWR process—the forming angle α, the stretching angle β, and the area reduction ΔA were determined. From the experimental results, the morphology of void generation and growth in CWR is ascertained and discussed. Through the definition of a non-dimensional deformation coefficient ε, a method for predicting the likelihood of void formation is also established and discussed with respect to optimizing CWR tooling design.

    ABSTRACT: Efficient mechanisms for reliable transmission and flow control are required to provide enhanced throughput guarantee and network utilization on multimedia highways. An overview of high delay and multimedia transport protocol mechanisms with special focus on TCP and XTPX is given. Different retransmission strategies, dynamical rate control as well as window size adjustment and flow control techniques at connection establishment and error recovery are discussed and illustrated by simulation results and measurements for TCP and XTPX. For high delay networks and multimedia applications, we study and demonstrate the effect of go-back-N, selective retransmission, Slowstart, congestion avoidance of TCP as well as selectable retransmission techniques and rate based flow control of XTPX

    ABSTRACT: Internal defects in the cross wedge rolling (CWR) process can lead to the catastrophic failure of products. Using specialised experiments and the explicit dynamic finite element model (FEM), this work investigates the mechanisms of void generation and growth in the cross wedge rolling process. Based on a combined numerical and experimental approach, the morphology of void generation is determined as a function of the workpiece material and three primary parameters in the cross wedge rolling process: the forming angle, , the stretching angle, and the area reduction, A . Through the definition of a non-dimensional deformation coefficient, , a method for predicting the likelihood of void formation is subsequently ascertained and discussed with respect to CWR tooling design and operating conditions.

    ABSTRACT: Constant strain rate compression tests were carried out on AISI 5140 using the Gleeble-3500 thermomechanical simulator. The mechanical behavior and the dynamic structure changes were investigated metallographically in the temperature range from 900 to 1100 °C and at the strain rate ranging from 0.1 to 10 s−1. A dynamic recrystallized grain size model and a volume fraction model were presented as well as a diagram of dynamic microstructure state. The cross-wedge rolling process for shafts was simulated through establishing a theoretical model on the finite element software DEFORM. The distributions of the different field-variable, such as effective strain, effective strain rate and temperature, were obtained. Meanwhile, mean grain size distribution after rolling was presented in this paper.
