Experiments cannot show under the surface

Numerical simulations have convergence problems with a very deformed free surface

- Proposed explanations for very deformed weld pool
- Ishizaki (1980): gas shear, experimental
- Oreper (1983): Marangoni, numerical
- Lin (1985): vortex, analytical
- Choo (1991): Arc pressure, gas shear, numerical
- Rokhlin (1993): electromagnetic, hydrodynamic, experimental
- Weiss (1996): arc pressure, numerical

- Questions that can be “easily” answered
- For a given current, gas, and geometry, what is the maximum velocity of the molten metal?
- For a given set of parameters, what are the temperatures, displacements, velocities, etc?

- Questions more difficult to answer:
- What mechanism is dominant in determining metal velocity?
- If I am designing a weld, what current should I use to achieve a given penetration?
- Can I alter one parameter and compensate with other parameters to keep the same result?

- Dimensional Analysis
- Buckingham’s “Pi” theorem

- “Informed” Dimensional Analysis
- dimensionless groups based on knowledge about system

- Inspectional Analysis
- dimensionless groups from normalized equations

- Ordering
- Scaling laws from dominant terms in governing equations (e.g. Bejan, M M Chen, Dantzig and Tucker, Kline, Denn, Deen, Sides, Astarita, and more)

- Write governing equations
- Normalize the variables using their characteristic values.
- Some characteristic values might be unknown.
- This step results in differential expressions based on the normalized variables.

- choose terms where they are present
- make their coefficients equal to 1.

- Limitations
- Approximation of differential expressions can be grossly inaccurate
not true in important practical cases!

- Higher order derivatives
- Functions with high curvature

- Approximation of differential expressions can be grossly inaccurate

- Limitations
- Cannot perform manually balances for coupled problems with many equations
- when making coefficients equal to 1, there maybe more than one unknown
- impractical to check manually for all balances (there is no guaranteed unicity in ordering)

- Cannot perform manually balances for coupled problems with many equations

- Addresses the drawbacks
- Table of improved characteristic values
- Linear algebra treatment

- Goals:
- Estimate characteristic values:
- velocity, thickness, temperature

- Relate results to process parameters
- materials properties, welding velocity, weld current

- Capture all physics, simplifications in the math
- Identify dominant phenomena:
- gas shear? Marangoni? electromagnetic? arc pressure?

- Estimate characteristic values:

TWO BIG PROBLEMS FOR MATERIALS PROCESSES!

all coefficients are power laws

all terms in parenthesis expected to be OM(1)

- Simple scaling approach involves 334098 possible combinations
- There are 116 self-consistent solutions
- there is no unicity of solution
- we cannot stop at first self-consistent solution
- self-consistent solutions are grouped into 55 classes (1- 6 solutions per class)

- Power-law coefficients can be transformed into linear expressions using logarithms
- Several power law equations can then be transformed into a linear system of equations
- Normalizing an equation consists of subtracting rows

one row for each term of the equation

Materials processes are “Multiphysics” and “Multicoupled”

Scaling helps understand the dominant forces in materials processes

Several thousand iterations are necessary for scaling

The “Matrix of Coefficients” and associate matrix relationships help automate scaling

- Simple closed-form expressions
- Typically are exact solution of asymptotic cases
- Display explicitly the trends in a problem
- insightful (explicit variable dependences)
- generalize data, rules of thumb

- insightful (explicit variable dependences)
- Power Laws
- Only way to combine units
- “Everything plotted in log-log axes becomes a straight line”

- Are valid for a family of problems (which can be reduced to a “canonical” problem)
- useful to interpolate / extrapolate, detect outliers
- Range of validity can be determined (Process maps)

- Provide accurate approximations
- can be used as benchmark for numerical models

- Useful for fast calculations
- massive amounts of data (materials informatics)
- meta-models, early stages of design
- control systems

- Reductionist (system answers can be build by understanding the elements individually)
