Ce travail de thèse a pour objectif d’étudier le comportement thermohydraulique du bain fondu lors du soudage à l’arc électrique. Cette étude a été menée dans le but de concevoir un modèle mathématique et de développer un programme FORTRAN qui permet de résoudre les équations gouvernant le bain de fusion pendant le soudage. Les résultats issus de ce programme peuvent contribuer à la prédiction de la distribution de température pendant le soudage, l’élargissement de la ZAT, le champ de vitesse ainsi que la forme et la taille du bain de fusion. En modélisation mathématique du soudage, l’apport d’énergie modélisé par une source de chaleur surfacique donne de bons résultats lorsque l’épaisseur des pièces à souder est faible. Dans la simulation numérique du comportement thermique du bain de fusion par les méthodes des différences finies et éléments finis, les cycles thermiques calculés par la méthode des éléments finis sont plus proches de ceux mesurés pendant la période de refroidissement. Le modèle du comportement thermohydraulique du bain de fusion basé sur la formulation courant-tourbillon des équations de Navier – Stokes nous a permis de les simplifier par l'élimination de l’équation de la conservation de masse et de champ de pression. Les résultats du calcul montrent que la force de tension superficielle domine les forces motrices dans le bain de fusion et favorise un bain de fusion mouillant. Les résultats du calcul concernent le champ de température, les cycles thermiques, le champ de vitesse et la taille du bain de fusion sont en bon accord avec ceux rapportés dans la littérature.

Article de conférence

The present work is a contribution in assessment of the security factor of the structures made from composites materials in order to work within safe conditions. In the first step, a Matlab code is developed in order to develop a mechanical model able to predict the mechanical behavior of the high performance composite material without necessity to the expensive experimental test. In the second step, an analytical modeling is performed for the composite structure subjected to a tensile load in the longitudinal direction and a moment in the transversal direction in order to assess the strain and the stress fields in all layers of the composite material and evaluate the security factor in all plies. Meanwhile, the new mechanical model can be used as a tool decision in design and maintenance in order to check the integrity of the composite structure. Voir les détails

Droplet Breakup Regime in a Cross-Junction Device with Lateral Obstacles

Tawfiq Chekifi  (2019)

Numerical simulation using Ansys Fluent code is performed, to investigate droplet generation in cross-junction based VOF method. Droplets of water are generated by the shear stress applied by continuous phase (oil), two configurations of cross-junction are suggested; the first is a simple model no modification is performed at the outer channel, while the second model is characterized by a lateral obstacle. we study the effect of velocity ratio, viscous parameter, interfacial tension, flow condition on droplet size and frequency, the effect of lateral obstacles on droplets generation is also focused and analysed. The numerical simulations showed that the velocity ratio and interfacial tension play a significant role in determining the droplet breakup and non-breakup. On the other side, the increase of flow rate ratio can be effectively used to decrease the droplet size. In addition, droplets produced in cross-junction with lateral obstacles are generally found to be larger than that produced with the first model. Moreover, the frequency of droplet production was increasing by increasing of flow rate ratio. The numerical results show very good agreements with previous numerical and experimental works for the growth of droplet breakup, size and frequency. Voir les détails

Thèse de doctorat

This work aims at predicting the micro-hardness of XC38steel using the experiments plans as well asstudy of tribological behavior of thissteel. The heat treatments were considered by adopting thefactorial plans 22 methodology at two factors (temperature ‘T’ and holding time ‘t’), each at two levels(-1, +1). The results obtained allowed lead to a mathematical model predicting the micro-hardness‘Hv’ in every point of the study field. Moreover, the curves of the responses surfaces clearly show theinfluence of two factors studied (T, t) on ‘Hv’. Mechanical characterization of treated samples showedasignificant increase in the micro-hardness, which achieve to 76% for the treated sample at 850 °Cduring 2 h compared to untreated state. An investigation of wear tracks morphology shows thatfriction under a load of 10 N results in predominant adhesive wear, while a load of 2 N favorabrasive wear. Voir les détails

Numerical study of parameters affecting pressure drop of power-law fluid in horizontal annulus for laminar and turbulent flow

Hicham Ferroudji, Ahmed Hadjadj, Ahmed HADDAD, Titus Ntow Ofei  (2019)

Efficient hydraulics program of oil and gas wells has a crucial role for the optimization of drilling process. In the presentpaper, a numerical study of power-law fluid flow through concentric (E = 0.0) and eccentric annulus (E = 0.3, E = 0.6 andE = 0.9) was performed for both laminar and turbulent flow regimes utilizing a finite volume method. The effects of innerpipe rotation, flow behavior index and diameter ratio on the pressure drop were studied; furthermore, the appearance anddevelopment of secondary flow as well as its impact on the pressure drop gradient were evaluated. Results indicated thatthe increment of the inner pipe rotation from 0 to 400 rpm is found to decrease pressure drop gradient for laminar flow inconcentric annulus while a negligible effect is observed for turbulent flow. The beginning of secondary flow formation in thewide region part of the eccentric annulus (E = 0.6) induces an increase of 9% and a slight increase in pressure drop gradientfor laminar and turbulent flow, respectively. On the other hand, the variation of the flow behavior index and diameter ratiofrom low to high values caused a dramatic increase in the pressure drop. Streamlines in the annulus showed that the secondary flow is mainly induced by eccentricity of the inner pipe where both high values of diameter ratio and low values of flowbehavior index tend to prevent the secondary flow to appear.

Numerical Simulation of Droplet Breakup, Splitting andSorting in a Microfluidic Device

T. CHEKIFI, B. dennai, R. Khelfaoui  (2015)

Droplet generation, splitting and sorting are investigated numericallyin the framework of a VOF technique for interface tracking and a finite-volumenumerical method using the commercial code FLUENT. Droplets of water-in-oilare produced by a flow focusing technique relying on the use of a microchannellequipped with an obstacle to split the droplets. The influence of several parameterspotentially affecting this process is investigated parametrically towards the endof identifying "optimal" conditions for droplet breakup. Such parameters includesurface tension, the capillary number and the main channel width. We show thatthe capillary number plays a crucial role in determining droplet properties and theefficiency of the related generation process. An obstacle configuration can be effectivelyused to split a droplet, with the droplets being naturally sorted at the endof the main channel. Larger values of the capillary number generally lead to anincrease in the droplet frequency and a decrease in its typical size. Voir les détails
