The paper concerns simulation of fully developed and axially-symmetrical turbulent flow of coarse-dispersive slurry if all solid particles have similar size and shape with particles diameter from 1 mm to 5 mm, solid density from 1045 kg/m^3 to 3000 kg/m^3, and solid concentration by volume from 20% to 40%. The author examines the influence of particle diameter on additional shear stress due to the ‘particles-wall’ interactions for moderate and high solid concentration. The mathematical model was developed using Bagnold's concept,  and assumes that the total wall shear stresses are equal to the sum of ‘liquid-wall’ and ‘particles-wall’ shear stresses. The mathematical model was successfully verified with own measurements of frictional head loss in vertical coarse - dispersive slurry flow, named: ‘sand-water’, ‘polystyrene-water’ and ‘pvc-water’, , . The mathematical model can predict ‘particles-wall’ shear stress, pressure drop and friction factor for coarse-dispersive turbulent slurry flow in a pipe, . The aim of the paper is to present qualitative and quantitative dependence of solid particle diameter, solid particle density, solid concentration, and Reynolds number for carrier liquid phase on the ‘particles-wall’ shear stress. It is demonstrated that the solid particle diameter plays crucial role in its dependence on the ‘particles-wall’ shear stress. It was proved that in particular flow conditions the ‘particles-wall’ shear stress is much higher compared to the carrier liquid wall shear stress.
In the article the equations have been worked making it possible to model the motion of freerunning grain mixture flow on a flat sloping vibrating sieve within the framework of shallow water theory. Free-running grain mixture is considered as a heterogeneous system consisting of two phases, one of which represents solid particles and the other one gas. The mixture is brought into a state of fluidity by means of high-frequency vibration imposition. Coefficients of internal and external friction and dynamic-viscosity decrease by exponential law as the fluctuation intensity is increased. When considering grain mixture dynamics, the following assumptions are put forward: we ignore the air presence in space between particles, we consider the density of particles to be constant, the free-running mixture is similar to Newtonian liquid. The basic system of equations of grain mixture dynamics is due to the laws of continuum mechanics. The equation of continuity is issued from the law of conservation of mass, and the dynamic equations are issued from the law of variation of momentum. The stress tensor equals to the sum of the equilibrium tensor and the dissipative tensor. The equilibrium part of the stress tensor is represented by the spherical tensor, which is found to conform to Pascal law for liquids, and the dissipative part, which is responsible for viscous force effect and defined by Navier-Stokes law. Boundary conditions on the surfaces (restricting the capacity of the free-running grain mixture) have been researched. The distributions of apparent density and velocity field are assigned at the inlet and outlet flow sections of the mixture. The normal velocity component of the grain mixture on the side frames and on the sieve becomes zero, which meets the no-fluid-loss condition of the medium through the frame. Beyond that point at this time we satisfy dynamic conditions, which characterize the mixture sliding down the hard frame, motion flow resistance force is represented as average velocity linear dependence. A kinematic condition and two dynamic ones are stipulated on the free surface layer. One of the conditions states mass flow continuity across the free surface, the other one states the stress continuity while passing through the free surface. The basic premise of planned motion equations is the condition of small size of flow depth in comparison with its width. With the use of shallow water theory the basic principles of the equations of flow dynamics are simplified and for their solving a Cauchy problem can be set.
In the current study, the hot deformation of medium carbon V-Ti micro-alloyed steel was surveyed in the temperature range of 950 to 1150°C and strain rate range of 0.001 to 1 s–1 after preheating up to 1200°C with a compression test. In all cases of hot deformation, dynamic recrystallization took place. The influence of strain rate and deformation temperature on flow stress was analyzed. An increase in the strain rate and decrease in the deformation temperature postponed the dynamic recrystallization and increased the flow stress. The material constants of micro-alloyed steel were calculated based on the constitutive equations and Zener-Hollomon parameters. The activation energy of hot deformation was determined to be 458.75 kJ/mol, which is higher than austenite lattice self-diffusion activation energy. To study the influence of precipitation on dynamic recrystallization, the stress relaxation test was carried out in a temperature range of 950 to 1150°C after preheating up to 1200°C. The results showed no a stress drop while representing the interaction of particles with dynamic recrystallization.
The article reports the results of research on the influence of the alternate intermittent deformation of specimens by a torsion method on the Bauschinger effect in the Zr-1%Nb zirconium-based alloy. Tests were carried out using an STD 812 torsion plastometer. Based on the tests carried out, diagrams have been plotted, which represent the influence of the pre-deformation magnitude, the temperature of heat treatment prior to deformation, and deformation rate on the variation in the values of the flow stress and yield strength of the alloy under study. Conditions have been defined, in which larger magnitudes of plastic deformation of Zr-1Nb% alloy material can be used during its cold plastic working.
