Sloshing Simulation in Cylindrical Water Storage Tanks: An Abaqus Modeling Framework

 120.0
Liquid storage tanks have many applications in water supply systems and industrial environments. However, seismic damages to these tanks present significant challenges. One of the well-known damages observed in tanks during earthquakes is roof fracture caused by liquid sloshing. Sloshing is a phenomenon that liquid surface moves during seismic events. In this project, we used ABAQUS for the sloshing simulation in ground-supported cylindrical tanks. The tank experiences the acceleration of the El-Centro earthquake. The Abaqus sloshing simulation involves the calculation of Rayleigh damping factors and natural frequencies, employing the ALE meshing technique, and incorporating hourglass controls in Abaqus. We have suggested two ways for the tank sloshing simulation: one involves assigning a low viscosity to the water, and the other is applying Rayleigh damping factors with the assumption of an inviscid fluid. For verification, we modeled a water tank and compared the results with those obtained in the following paper: “Parametric study on the dynamic behavior of cylindrical ground-supported tanks”

Modal and Frequency Analysis in Abaqus | Abaqus modal Analysis

 70.0
Modal analysis is a technique used to understand how structures and systems vibrate when subjected to forces. It identifies natural frequencies, which are frequencies at which a system vibrates without external excitation, and mode shapes, representing unique patterns of motion. Engineers use modal analysis simulation to design systems resistant to unwanted vibrations, preventing resonance and potential damage. Frequency response analysis evaluates a structure's reaction to specific excitations across varying frequencies, aiding in design optimization to mitigate fatigue damage caused by vibrations. In Abaqus software, Abaqus modal analysis identifies natural frequencies (Abaqus natural frequency) and mode shapes, while frequency response analysis predicts a structure's response to excitation across a frequency range. In Abaqus modal analysis tutorial package, there are several modal analysis examples (modal analysis example): Workshop 1 analyzes the natural frequency of a water transfer tube to predict resonance occurrence or potential issues from vibrations. Workshop 2 simulates the dynamic analysis of a frame under a sudden load, determining modes, natural frequencies, and transient dynamic response. Workshop 3 simulates free and forced vibrations of a wire under harmonic excitation, examining resonance phenomena with preloading and spring-damper configurations. These workshops demonstrate practical applications of modal and frequency response analyses in structural dynamics simulation and design.

Short fiber composite damage (Mean Field Homogenization Model)

 220.0
Short-fiber reinforced thermoplastics, popular due to their strength, lightness, and cost-effectiveness, are often manufactured using injection molding to create complex parts with dispersed short fibers. However, failure in these materials is complex, involving mechanisms like fiber cracking and plastic deformation. Current models for damage and failure are either macroscopic or simplified. A new method tackles this challenge by evaluating stiffness using continuum damage mechanics with a multistep homogenization approach. This new method is called “Mean Field Homogenization”.

Then, mean-field homogenization is employed within Abaqus using a UMAT subroutine to average stiffness across these phases, followed by overall homogenization. This use of mean-field homogenization Abaqus simplifies the modeling of the composite's intricate geometry. The method was validated through testing on a distal radius plate. Calibration was achieved through experiments, and the simulation was performed using Abaqus finite element software. It's important to note that the Abaqus short fiber damage mean field homogenization process was implemented within Abaqus through the INP code.
