The mechanical properties of adhesive were evaluated by two different approaches to predict the formability of adhesive-bonded steel sheets by finite element (FE) simulations. The epoxy adhesive properties were varied by changing the hardener/resin (H/R) ratios. The true stress–strain behaviour of adhesive was evaluated from (i) direct tensile testing of adhesive samples (Approach-1) and (ii) rule of mixtures’ concept applicable to adhesive-bonded sheets (Approach-2). The evaluated mechanical properties of adhesive through both the approaches were incorporated during simulation of tensile test and in-plane plane-strain formability test. The forming limit strains of adhesive-bonded sheets were evaluated during predictions by necking criteria, namely thickness gradient necking criterion (TGNC) and effective strain rate ratio based criterion (ESRC), and validated with the experimental limit strains. It is found that the limit strains predicted by both the approaches are moderately accurate with respect to experimental data. There is not much difference in limit strains of adhesive-bonded sheets obtained from Approach-1 and Approach-2. The TGNC shows better prediction as compared to ESRC. Further, the present study investigates the springback of adhesive-bonded sheets during V-bending with the influence of H/R ratio of adhesive, shims, and wire reinforcement. The results show that there is a considerable influence of H/R ratio on springback and about 8–20° reduction depending on the presence or absence of shim. But the wire reinforcement shows insignificant effect on V-bending of adhesive-bonded sheets.

2015 Journal Article V. Satheeshkumar and Narayanan, R. G., “Predicting the tensile behaviour of adhesively bonded sheets using equivalent geometrical heterogeneities”, International Journal of Material Forming, pp. 1-13, 2015.[Abstract]

In the present work, the formability of adhesively bonded sandwichsteel sheets is predicted during tensile tests, with the help of equivalent geometrical heterogeneities in the base sheets, without incorporating adhesive layer and properties during modelling simulations. This will help us mainly to overcome the difficulties while incorporating adhesion/adhesive properties during formability simulation and prediction. The limit strains during the tensile test are predicted and validated with experiments. The effect of hardener to resin (H/R) ratios of adhesive on the forming limit strains has been predicted with a set of thickness heterogeneity factor ‘f’ and size (w) of the defect, located in the base material. In other words, a relationship between defect morphology (f, w) and adhesive properties has been evaluated. For example, in the case of rectangular-infinite groove of width, w = 0.5 mm, the limit strains of DDQ steel evaluated during tensile tests at f = 0.912, f = 0.9137, f = 0.924, f = 0.927, and f = 0.95 are equivalent to the H/R ratios of 0.6:1, 0.7:1, 0.8:1, 0.9:1, and 1:1 of adhesive, respectively. The limit strains are predicted in the same manner with a square hole and finite square defect in the base material. It is suggested that the overall forming (tensile) behaviour of adhesively bonded blanks (ABB) can be predicted with the help of a thickness heterogeneity factor (or similar geometrical heterogeneities) that is equivalent to all the geometrical and structural heterogeneities in the whole bonded sheets.

2015 Journal Article V. Satheeshkumar and R. Narayanan, G., “Experimental evaluation and prediction of deep drawability of adhesive bonded steel sheets”, Materialwissenschaft und Werkstofftechnik, vol. 46, pp. 713–735, 2015.[Abstract]

The main aim of the present work is to experimentally evaluate the deep drawing behaviour of adhesive bonded sheets at different adhesive properties and predict the same using finite element simulations. The deep drawing quality steel and SS316L stainless steel are used as base materials for experiments and simulations. The deep drawing behaviour is also predicted using available analytical equations and proposed semi-empirical equations. Such predictions are validated with experimental results.It is observed that due to increased plasticity of adhesive layer, the hardener rich formulation of adhesive improves the deep drawability of adhesive bonded blanks. The presence of carbon black in the adhesive has improved the drawability of bonded sheets up to a certain limit, say 2% by weight in the present work. The deep drawing behaviour predicted either by approach 1 (by giving experimentally evaluated adhesive properties as input) and by approach 2 (adhesive properties evaluated from rule of mixtures) are almost same, which indicates that both the methods can be used for forming behaviour prediction. The deep drawability predictions are moderately accurate with respect to experimental observation. The accuracy of analytical models for maximum load predictions is encouraging while comparing it with experimental results and numerical predictions. The proposed semi-empirical equations show promising results to obtain initial estimate about the load-progression behaviour of bonded sheets.

2015 Journal Article V. Satheeshkumar and R, G. Narayanan, “Prediction of formability of adhesive bonded steel sheets and experimental validation”, Archives of Civil and Mechanical Engineering, vol. 15, pp. 30 - 41, 2015.[Abstract]

Abstract The main aim of the present work is to predict the formability of adhesive bonded sheets and validate the same with experimental results at different adhesive properties. The tensile and in-plane plane-strain formability tests are carried out to predict the formability of adhesive bonded sheets. The forming limit strains are predicted using thickness gradient necking criterion (TGNC) and effective strain rate criterion (ESRC), and validated with the experimental limit strains. A simulation methodology has been analyzed thoroughly in the present work, and the prediction accuracies are compared and discussed. The results show that the adhesive bonded blanks show improved elongation and forming limit strains as compared to un-bonded base materials with increase in hardener/resin ratio of adhesive. The true stress–strain predictions are accurate as compared to experimental data. There is a moderate difference in adhesive bonded sheets limit strains between predictions and experiments. This may be due to the absence of interface bonding between adhesive and base materials during predictions. The necking criterion, TGNC, shows better prediction as compared to ESRC.

2014 Journal Article V. Satheeshkumar, K., K., C.J.Thomas, R., V., J., R., S., and C., B., “Evaluation of cell formation algorithms and implementation of MOD-SLC algorithm as an effective cellular manufacturing system in a manufacturing Industry”, International Journal of Current Engineering and Technology, no. 2, pp. 183–190, 2014.[Abstract]

Benefits of cellular manufacturing system depend on major factors namely the design of machine cells and part family, setup time and method of operation. Cellular Manufacturing System (CMS) become a failure when these two factors are not properly employed. This work incorporates five array-based clustering algorithms namely Single linkage clustering method (SLC), Modified-Single Linkage Clustering method (MOD-SLC), Direct Clustering Analysis (DCA), Rank Order
Clustering (ROC) and Rank Order Clustering-2 (ROC-2) for analyzing real time manufacturing delay with manufacturing cell formation. In the present study, Modified-Single Linkage Clustering (MOD-SLC) method outperforms the other four methods, regardless of the measure used, irrespective of any additional prevalence of exceptional elements in the data set. The results are validated with real time manufacturing systems data.

2014 Journal Article V. Satheeshkumar and Narayanan, R. G., “Investigation on the influence of adhesive properties on the formability of adhesive-bonded steel sheets”, Proc. of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part C, Journal of Mechanical Engineering Science, Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part C: Journal of Mechanical Engineering Science, vol. 228, pp. 405-425, 2014.[Abstract]

The main aim of this research work is to study the influence of adhesive properties on the formability of adhesive-bonded steel sheets. The adhesive properties were varied by having two different adhesives, epoxy based and acrylic based, and by changing the hardener to resin ratios. The deep drawing quality cold rolled steel and stainless steel (SS 316L) sheets were used as base materials. The epoxy and acrylic adhesives show improved elongation with increase in hardener to resin ratio. This is because of changeover of resin-rich formulation to hardener-rich formulation, making the sample more ductile. The adhesive-bonded blanks show improved elongation as compared to double sheets, which is due to the presence of adhesive delaying the onset of necking. With increase in hardener to resin ratio of both the adhesives, the elongation of individual sheets has improved. This is due to the improvement in elongation of adhesives with increase in hardener to resin ratio. The strain hardening exponent (n) of adhesive-bonded blanks has improved with increase in hardener to resin ratio in all the regions of deformation. The limit strain of deep drawing quality and SS 316L sheets constituting adhesive-bonded blanks shows improvement with increase in hardener to resin ratio. The adhesive-bonded blanks with interface bonding exhibit better limit strain as compared to the case without interface bonding. © IMechE 2013.

2014 Journal Article V. Satheeshkumar and R Narayanan, G., “Formability of adhesive-bonded steel sheets with artificial finite adhesive defects”, The Journal of Strain Analysis for Engineering Design, vol. 49, pp. 286–300, 2014.[Abstract]

In this investigation, the influence of artificial finite adhesive defects with different shapes and sizes, characterized by (1) aspect ratios, a/b = 0.5, 1 and 1.5 (where a is transverse axis length of defect; b is longitudinal axis length of defect), (2) number of defects and (3) different locations, in the epoxy adhesive layer on the formability of adhesive-bonded blanks, is analysed. The deep drawing quality cold-rolled steel and stainless steel (SS 316L) sheets were used as base materials. The increase in aspect ratio of adhesive defect reduces the ductility of adhesive layer and thereby decreases the formability of adhesive-bonded blanks. This is due to the early failure of adhesive layer at the location of defect where strain is locally concentrated. The strain hardening exponent (n) of adhesive-bonded blanks has decreased with increase in aspect ratio of adhesive defect in all the regions of deformation. The limit strain of deep drawing quality and SS 316L sheets constituting adhesive-bonded blanks shows decrement with increase in aspect ratio of adhesive defect. It is postulated that the aspect ratio of the finite adhesive defect influences significantly the formability of adhesive-bonded blanks, but not shape of the finite adhesive defects. There is no considerable effect of number of adhesive defects and different locations of adhesive defects on the formability of adhesive-bonded blanks.

2014 Journal Article V. Satheeshkumar and Narayanan, R. G., “In-plane plane strain formability of adhesive-bonded steel sheets: influence of adhesive properties”, International Journal of Advanced Manufacturing Technology, vol. 76, pp. 993-1009, 2014.[Abstract]

In the present work, the influence of adhesive properties on the formability of adhesive-bonded sheets (deep drawing quality (DDQ) steel and SS 316L) has been studied through in-plane plane strain (IPPS) formability tests. The adhesive properties were modified by different hardener to resin ratios and by having epoxy and acrylic adhesives. The formability is quantified by load–extension behaviour, limit strains and strain hardening exponent of adhesive-bonded sheets. It is observed from the work done that with increase in hardener to resin ratio, the elongation of adhesives is found to improve during tensile tests. This forms the basis for the actual formability change of adhesive-bonded sheets at different hardener/resin (H/R) ratios. During IPPS formability tests of adhesive-bonded steel sheets, the total elongation is found to improve with increase in hardener/resin ratio. Likewise, limit strains also improve with increase in hardener/resin ratios. The improvement in elongation and limit strains is due to the conversion of a resin-rich formulation to a hardener-rich formulation, making the sample more ductile. Both the acrylic and epoxy adhesive-bonded sheets show an equal amount of improvement in limit strain. The strain hardening exponent (n) of adhesive-bonded blanks has improved with increase in hardener/resin ratio in all the three regions of deformation. The adhesive-bonded blanks have larger strain hardening exponent values as compared to double sheet in the corresponding regions of deformation, indicating formability improvement as compared to double sheet. © 2014, Springer-Verlag London.

Satheeshkumar, “Prediction and Measurement of Pressure Distribution Over a Compressor Blade Through A Cascade Studies”, Procedia Engineering, vol. 38, pp. 2657 - 2662, 2012.[Abstract]

The base of this paper is to find the pressure distribution over the compressor blades through a cascade, which is useful to measure the flow properties of the compressor in an actual axial compressor. The static pressure distribution is obtained from the static pressure holes around the central blade which equipped with the manometers. Plot the graph between the pressure distribution and the spacing between the leading edge to the static holes. And we have to predict the Mach number doing the same procedure to get the results. After that experimental result, we have to analyze the whole experimental cascade series of blade by using software. A result from the software is compared with the experimental measurements. We have to predict the Mach number and change the pitch of the blades and the blade angle do the same procedure as mentioned before and take different plots to analyze in which parameters the compressor blades are got the optimum pressure rise.

Although the equations for the flat plate, circular arc and symmetrical Joukowski airfoils are simple and direct those of the cambered airfoil are complicated and may be by-passed only because an ingenious geometrical method exist which may be used to find both the profile of the airfoil and its pressure distribution namely Karmann-Treffz geometrical construction. An Alternate geometrical method has been proposed in this paper and using fitting line theory, the equation has been arrived and performances of airfoils are studied. Few interesting results regarding co-efficient of lift, co-efficient of moment at leading edge and quarter chord, zero lift angle, lift co-efficient at zero lift angle has been discussed and compared by using design foil and XFLR.

Air pollution with the exhaust emission is still a serious problem and an international concern has been raised for its control and restriction. The main problem faced by most of the vehicles today is the emission of NOx which is drastically reduced in the mixture of diesel and LPG popularly known as a dual fuel. In this investigation, the application of CFD in the LPG and air mixture formation in a dual fuel engine (diesel and LPG) has been carried out and the results have been validated by experimental method. Normally LPG is inducted through a gas jet to the inlet manifold of the engine which is placed close to the engine, maintaining an angle of inclination to the air-flow direction. The LPG jet angle is changed in accordance with the injector nozzle angle. The variation of the jet parameters changes the performance of the engine. CFD software has been used to solve this problem and is validated with experimental results. The results show that the optimized jet parameters by CFD package as well as experimental results show slight improvement in engine performance and good reduction in NOx emission besides the normal performance of induction.

Today, numerous companies have a major opportunity to reduce their costs and customer lead time and cycle time through the application of Lean Manufacturing processes. In recent years, almost every manufacturing industry has been trying to get ‘lean’. Lean thinking represents a set of principles and techniques for the identification and elimination of wastages in manufacturing and administrative processes. Value Stream Mapping (VSM) which is one of the lean manufacturing approaches has emerged as the preferred way to support and implement the lean approach. VSM is a helpful tool to identify the waste and improvement areas. VSM enables a company to see the entire process in both its current and desired future state, and develop the road map that prioritises the projects or tasks to bridge the gap between the current state and the future (lean) state. Improvements in processes, facility layouts, and managerial spans of control encourage redefining an organizations hierarchy and adopting a value stream management system. In this work, the Information flow, Current state, Value added time and Non-value added time across a leading automobile brakes manufacturing company and its Subcontractors have been studied to achieve value stream management or lean organizational structures. A future state has been proposed in which the reduction of raw material inventory, WIP inventory, finished goods inventory and Lead Time. This paper describes the value stream analysis from current state mapping to future state mapping including the lean concepts, metrics and methods that provide improvement. Eventually the current state and future state have been compared to propose an optimal manufacturing system. More »»

2014 Conference Paper V. Satheeshkumar and R Narayanan, G., “Influence of pre-generated infinite adhesive defects on the forming behaviour of adhesive bonded steel sheets”, in Advanced Materials Research, 2014.[Abstract]

In the present investigation, the forming behaviour of adhesive bonded sheets with the pre-generated infinite defects in the adhesive layer is studied. The infinite defects are generated with different orientations like longitudinal, transverse and at an angle of 45°. The base sheet materials used are deep drawing quality steel and SS 316L sheets, and two part epoxy adhesive is used for bonding the base sheet materials. The formability is quantified by monitoring the load-extension behaviour, and limit strain, evaluated through tensile tests and in-plane plane strain (IPPS) formability tests. It is observed that there is a significant decrease in formability because of the presence of infinite defects in the adhesive layer. While comparing the formability of adhesive bonded blanks with respect to different orientations, transversely oriented defect shows more reduction than 45° and longitudinal cases. There is not much difference between the transversely oriented and 45° oriented infinite defects in tensile tests, whereas in the IPPS formability test results, there is no considerable difference between 45° and longitudinally oriented defect.

A method for modifying the properties of adhesives is by the addition of metallic wire strand in fibre form to improve the thermal conductivity for use in electrical applications. Clearly any advantage gained as far as thermal conductivity is concerned should not be counteracted by deficiencies in mechanical properties. In this work, the influence of copper wire reinforcements on the tensile behaviour of adhesive bonded steel sheets will be presented. The adhesive used is a two-part epoxy resin with a mix ratio of 1:1 parts by weight of resin to hardener. Wire strands used are copper wires having a diameter of 0.3 mm. The base materials are made of Stainless Steel. The stress-strain behaviour, and limit strain are evaluated through tensile tests and in-plane plane-strain (IPPS) formability tests. It is found that the ductility and limit strain of adhesive bonded sheets with wire reinforcement are better than that of the case without reinforcement. The ductility and limit strain of wire reinforced adhesive bonded sheets increases till three wires in the case of tensile tests, and four wires in the case of IPPS formability tests, after which it decreases.
