Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The International Conference on Advanced Materials, Structures and Mechanical Engineering (ICAMSME 2022) will take place at Incheon National University, Incheon, South-Korea, March 18-20, 2022. The ICAMSME is an annual conference aimed at presenting the current research being carried out in the fields of materials, structures, and mechanical engineering. The idea of the conference is for scientists, scholars, engineers, and students from universities, research institutes, and industries all around the world to present their ongoing research activities.

Special Issue papers can only be accepted through conference paper submission. The high-quality papers from conference can be provided a 25% discount. It is envisaged that this conference will allow for the free exchange of ideas and challenges among participants and encourage future collaboration between members of these groups. The conference will also foster cooperation among organizations and researchers involved in the merging fields and provide in-depth technical presentations with abundant opportunities for individual discussions with the presenters.

Among the various components of a tire, this study explores the tread portion, which has the longest contact with the ground during the summer, all-weather, and in the winter. The mechanical properties of three types of tread crack specimens were measured, and a stress–strain diagram for each specimen at low and high speeds was derived. Through the digital image correlation method, the crack tip opening displacement and angle were considered as fracture parameters and derived through equations. Subsequently, the different fracture progression regions were compared and analyzed to confirm the characteristics of the elastic displacement field. It was found that under both low- and high-speed conditions, the maximum elastic strains for the tread specimens were attained in the following order: summer, all-weather, and winter. Full article

Ti-6Al-4V alloys are used in various industrial fields such as aircraft parts due to its excellent specific strength and mechanical properties. A high-temperature forming technology has been applied because it is difficult to process complex shapes. During the high-temperature forming process, the microstructure changes significantly due to temperature, strain rate, reduction ratio, and other process variables, and mechanical properties of high-temperature molded products are changed accordingly. Therefore, in this study, a high-temperature compression test was performed on AMS4928, which is one of Ti-6Al-4V alloys used as a material for aircraft parts, and the severe plastic deformation and dead zone were confirmed in connection with the processing map. The changes in microstructure were comparatively analyzed. In addition, it was confirmed that there was a difference in formability due to grain refinement by dynamic recrystallization, and optimal high-temperature forming conditions were derived by linking and analyzing the formability and microstructural factors.

Titanium has many limitations in coverage and frequency of application due to its expensive alloying elements and complex manufacturing process. The biocompatible Ti-Mo-Fe ternary beta titanium alloys were designed by replacing high-cost beta-stabilizer elements (V, Nb, Zr, etc.) with low-cost Mo and Fe elements. In addition, it was attempted to obtain a low-cost, high-strength beta-titanium alloy with 800 MPa or more by applying the powder metallurgy process technology to the Ti-Mo-Fe alloy system. The added Mo element has the effect of reducing the elastic modulus of the titanium alloy without reducing its strength. In this study, Ti-Mo-Fe alloys designed with different Mo contents were fabricated using a powder metallurgy process and analyzed in connection with microstructural properties, phase changes, and mechanical properties. As Mo contents are increased, the α-lath thickness of Widmanstätten decreases and the size of prior β grain decreases. It was confirmed that the hardness and tensile strength were excellent and were compared with the ingot material of the same alloy system. Full article

To extend the life of a mechanical system, parametric Accelerated Life Testing (ALT) is proposed as a procedure to identify design faults and reduce fatigue failure. It includes a derivation of generalized time to failure model by linear transport process and a sample size equation for the ALT. A refrigerator drawer was used as an example. After loading, the rail rollers broke and the center support was bent. Ribs were added to the center support and the rail roller support was extended. At the first ALT, the box cover failed near the intersection between the cover and body. The box was then modified by increasing the rib and fillet. At the second ALT, the rails and center support fractured. They were altered by increasing the rib and corner rounding. After the third ALT, there were no issues. The drawer lifetime was ensured to be B1 life 10 years. Full article
