Numerical Simulation and Forecasting of Mechanical Properties for Multi-Component Nonferrous Dispersion-Hardened Powder Materials
A new mathematical simulation technique for physico-mechanical properties of multicomponent powder materials is proposed in this paper. The main advantage of the technique is that finite elements representing different components are placed into a common mesh and may exchange their properties. The input data are properties of components and specified value of porosity. The output data are properties of material after sintering. The technique allows us to investigate the influence of each component of a material on the properties and distribution of properties inside the sample. The comparative analysis of materials with different compositions is based on simulation results that are well concordant with the results of the laboratory experiments.
