Abstract: The thermal displacement of a large scale footbridge is investigated in this study through numerical simulation. With appropriate assumption, the temperature field of the footbridge is simplified and divided into several components. Fine finite element models are constructed for the deck plate, bridge section, and bridge tower to calculate the structural thermal effects. The made observations indicate that the thermal deformation of the bridge tower is much larger than that of the deck due to the cable sag under temperature increase.

Abstract: The accurate prediction of warpage of injection molded parts is important to achieve successful mold design with high precision. In this study, effects of polymer-filler properties, such as filler aspect ratio (L/D), filler modulus parallel to major axis (E1) and filler modulus perpendicular to major axis (E2), on warpage displacement of automobile door were studied quantitatively by experimental investigation and numerical simulation. The numerical results are in good agreement with the experimental measurements. It is also found that: (1) the thermal displacement decreases as E1 and E2 decrease, (2) the PVT displacement is not influenced by change of L/D, E1 and E2, (3) the orientation effect displacement is neglected small when L/D=1 and E1= E2, and it also increases as L/D and E1/E2 increase.

Abstract: The measuring method for thermal effects in NC machine tools was drawn-up as ISO 230-3 in 2001. After that, this international standard was introduced as JIS B 6193 in 2003. In connection with this, the measurement of thermal effects becomes achievable also not only in a machine tool builder but in a user side. Therefore, in this research, practical measurement and evaluation of thermal behavior in CNC lathe are performed from a user's viewpoint. Primarily in the experimental measurement, the spindle speed required for turning of the workpiece for a trial-production was given as a load pattern. Then the thermal displacement between cutting tool and workpiece was measured based on the above-mentioned standard and the evaluation result was reported. Secondarily, the consideration was done for the modification of the turning process of the most influential thermal effect. The thermal behavior by applying the modified load pattern was re-measured successively, and comparative evaluation was carried out. As a result, it was verified that an extensive reduction of the thermal effects was possible in the sensitive direction to the accuracy.
