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

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

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

B. dennai, A. BENTALEB, T. CHEKIFI, R. Khelfaoui, A. Abenbi  (2015)
Publication

The diffusion flux given by the Fick’s law characterizethe mixing rate. A passive mixingstrategy is proposed to enhance mixing of two fluids through perturbed jet low. A numerical studyof passive mixers has been presented. This paper is focused on the modeling of a micro-injectionsystems composed of passive amplifier without mechanical part. The micro-system modeling isbased on geometrical oscillators form. An asymmetric micro-oscillator design based on amonostable fluidic amplifier is proposed [2,7]. The characteristic size of the channels is generallyabout a few hundred of microns. The numerical results indicate that the mixing performance can beas high as 99 % within a typical mixing chamber of0.20 mm diameter inlet and 2.0 mm distance ofnozzle - spliter. In addition, the results confirm that self-rotation in the circular mixer significantlyenhances the mixing performance. The novel micro mixing method presented in this study providesa simple solution to mixing problems in microsystem. Voir les détails

Effect of Geometrical Parameters on Vortex Fluidic Oscillators Operating with Gases and Liquids

T. CHEKIFI, B. dennai, R. Khelfaoui  (2018)
Publication

The fluidic oscillator is an interesting device developed for passive flow measurement. These microsystems can produce a high oscillating jet frequency with high flow velocity. The main advantages of fluidic oscillators are that no moving parts is included in the device. Commercial CFD code FLUENT was used to perform analysis of flows in fluidic oscillator. Numerical simulations were carried out for different flow conditions, where water and air were used as working fluids. The oscillation frequencies were identified by the discrete fast Fourier transform method (FFT). Furthermore a low-pressure vortex of fluid flow in the oscillating chamber was observed. The effect of the operating pressure and the oscillating chamber shape on the fluidic oscillator performance is investigated. Moreover the velocity fluctuations of the feedback flows through both feedback channels and the output were determined quantitatively. In addition, the behaviour of the low-pressure vortex in both models is analysed. Also, numerical result revealed small vortices are developed at the end of nozzle while oscillation, which maintains the deflection of jet flow between attachments wall. Comparison of our numerical simulations with available results showed reasonably and good agreement. Voir les détails

Identification of the elasto-viscoplastic parameters for a thermoplastic polymer by instrumented indentation

A. Mokhtari, N. TALA IGHIL  (2018)
Publication

The indentation test is a simple, fast and reliable tool that allows the determination of the materials mechanical properties from experimental load-penetration curves using the inverse computation methods. Through this approach and using the Berkovich indenter, the creep and elasto-plastic properties of the polymers were estimated. Simulations of the elasto-viscoplastic behaviour of the studied polymers under nanoindentation tests were performed. A finite element analysis was carried out to simulate the mechanical behaviour of polymers which can be defined by the Young's modulus E and the parameters (K and n) that describe the materials hardening for large deformations. The obtained functions from the numerical simulations were validated by nanoindentation and compression tests for the studied polymers. Voir les détails

DAMAGE MODELLING IN THERMOPLASTIC LAMINATES REINFORCED WITH STEEL AND GLASS FIBRES UNDER QUASI-STATIC INDENTATION LOADING AT LOW-VELOCITY

Publication

This paper deals with experimental and numerical investigations of the composites damages with ductile and fragile reinforcement under quasi-static indentation loading. The main goal of the work is to increase the postdamage residual strength and ductility of thermoplastic composite. Two types of composite laminates with polypropylene (PP) matrix are tested: glass fibre laminate (GFPP) and steel fine wire mesh laminate (SWPP). The specimens are [0° 90°]2s stacking sequence and prepared by using a compression moulding technique. Quasi-static indentation tests were performed with two distinct penetration scales under low velocity (1.2 mm/min). The diameter of the hemispherical indenter is 16 mm. The failure mechanisms of composite layers were examined by the field emission scanning electron microscope (SEM). The results show that the failure mode of SWPP laminates is principally dominated by the plastic deformation component. In contrast, the GFPP laminate exhibits a fragile behaviour which is related to the fragile failure of glass fibres. In addition, the SEM shows that matrix cracking, fibre breakage, debonding and fibre pull out are the major damages observed around the indentation area. A model based on the combined use of plasticity, damage and fracture, was developed and applied to simulate quasi-static indentation behaviour and predict the resulting damage. Voir les détails

Effect of cold rolling on the recrystallization of 904L austenitic stainless steel

Lyacine RABAHI, Brahim MEHDI, Idir HADJI, Riad BADJI, Nabil KHERROUBA  (2019)
Article de conférence

The aim of this work is to study the recrystallization in the 904L austenitic stainless steel, which underwent a cold rolling with two different deformation amounts (50 and 90%). DSC tests have been conducted to determine the temperature range of the recrystallization. It was found that reducing the deformation amount slightly delays the recrystallization. The microstructure of the as-received alloy consists of austenitic grains recognized by the twins they contain. The deformation induced a corrugated microstructure with the presence of ribs. The XRD analysis confirmed that only γ phase peaks were present in the as-received alloy and showed that the deformation induced the extinction of γ phase peaks and the apparition of α phase peaks.

Tomographic Image Reconstruction in the Case of Limited Number of X-Ray Projections Using Sinogram Inpainting

a.allag, a.benammar, R.Drai, T.BOUTKEDJIRT  (2019)
Publication

In many medicine and industry applications, a precise X-ray tomography reconstruction of the internal objects structure is of great importance for reliable interpretation data. The tomography allows obtaining a spatial distribution of the internal materials structure. In certain experiments conditions, the projection data acquisition is guided by angle limitations or a restricted angle, this requires a subsampling of the projections number or a partial data absence. Accordingly, the reconstructed images may suffer from severe artefacts especially with the presence of noise. In this context, the purpose of this paper is to propose a tomographic image reconstruction method based on FBP associated to sinogram inpainting. The studied inpainting technique is based on first order variational methods such as the Chambolle-Pock algorithm. This method allows the quality improvement of the reconstruction images tomographic with reduced number of projection. The PSNR is improved by 7 to 10 dB in the reconstructed image compared to the classical FBP reconstruction. Voir les détails
