Objective: Our objective is to provide thumb reach envelopes to help guide the placement of controls on handheld devices and to provide useful methods to gather and analyze thumb reach data. Background: With the proliferation of handheld, interactive devices, such as cameras, mobile phones, game systems, and remote controls, human factors professionals involved in designing these products need data to help guide the placement of controls. Previous studies have not provided adequate two-dimensional thumb reach envelopes for the primary control surfaces of handheld devices. Method: A total of 90 participants in three groups (adolescent females, young mothers, and young fathers) placed representations of primary controls in preferred locations on a device model and "painted" their individual reach envelopes on a touch-screen device running a paint application. Results: We present two-dimensional thumb reach envelopes on the primary control surface for handheld devices. The primary reach zone for adolescent females is slightly larger and more circular than that of the adults. The preferred location for controls matches the primary thumb reach zones fairly well. Conclusion: The reach envelopes presented are the first of their kind and are likely to be useful to human factors professionals. The method used to obtain the data may also be useful. Application: The thumb reach envelopes should be applicable to the design of many handheld, interactive devices with dimensions similar to the models used in this study. The method presented allows design teams to collect and analyze thumb reach data quickly and inexpensively for different target user populations or product dimensions.

ABSTRACT: Aircraft engine and structural components are being produced from forgings with increasingly complex geometries in a wide range of aerospace alloys. The forging process involves a number of steps required to attain favorable material properties (e.g., heat treatment, rapid quench, cold work stress relieving, and artificial aging). These processing steps, however, also result in the introduction of residual stress. Excessive bulk residual stresses can have negative consequences including: part distortion during machining and/or during service, reduced crack initiation life, increased crack growth rates, and an overall reduction in part life. While bulk residual stresses are often accounted for with simple approximations that ensure safety, improved understanding of bulk residual stress fields would enable higher quality design and analysis methods. This could lead to overall higher performing structure. The proposed work plan will develop improved technology for the measurement of bulk residual stress and will demonstrate the effectiveness of this approach under representative conditions. BENEFIT: The proposed residual stress measurement technology is a significant improvement that would fill a critical gap in capability for bulk residual stress measurement, enabling high-quality measurements in aerospace materials. This technology is important to the aerospace community, but is applicable to many other industries as well. For example, pressure vessels, turbines, industrial facilities, and heavy equipment all contain critical structure with significant amounts of residual stress. As design and analysis techniques evolve to incorporate residual stress effects, it is important to have residual stress measurement techniques capable of providing the necessary supporting data. The proposed technology expands residual stress measurement capability to support these important challenges.

ABSTRACT: It is widely recognized that near surface residual stresses play a significant role in fatigue performance. Tensile residual stresses are of concern because they accelerate fatigue crack initiation and fatigue crack growth relative to what would occur in the absence of residual stress. Compressive residual stresses, on the other hand, have the opposite effect and can be used to improve fatigue performance. To effectively understand and predict residual stress effects on fatigue durability or crack initiation, which accounts for the majority of the total component life under high-cycle applications, accurate and reliable residual stress data are required in the near-surface region. The proposed work plan will develop improvements to a novel near-surface residual stress measurement technique, will demonstrate the effectiveness of this measurement technique under representative conditions, and will develop technology to implement the measurement. BENEFIT: The proposed residual stress measurement method is a significant improvement to existing residual stress measurement technology and will fill a critical gap in capability for near-surface residual stress measurement, enabling high-quality measurements in the near-surface regime under conditions typical of the aerospace industry. This technology is important to many industries (e.g., aerospace, transportation, utilities, etc). Current design methods are evolving to include residual stress effects and these methods benefit from high quality residual stress data.

ABSTRACT: Aircraft engine and structural components are being produced from forgings with increasingly complex geometries in a range of aerospace alloys. The forging process involves a number of steps required to attain favorable material properties (e.g., heat treatment, rapid quench, and cold work stress relieving). These processing steps, however, also result in the introduction of residual stress. Excessive bulk residual stresses can have negative consequences including: part distortion, reduced crack initiation life, and increased crack growth rates. While bulk residual stresses are often accounted for with simple approximations that ensure safety, there is an opportunity to improve the understanding of the bulk residual stress fields in forged parts and to monitor them as a routine part of quality assurance, which would reduce design uncertainty associated with residual stresses and would allow for higher performing structure. The proposed program will develop an approach for quality management of residual stresses in aerospace forgings, will develop technology to support quality system implementation, and will demonstrate the quality system in a production environment. The proposed quality system will combine advanced computational process modeling and residual stress measurement technology to establish a robust system of production control. BENEFIT: The proposed program offers a logical next-step in the continued improvement of structural engineering methods. Advances in residual stress technology over the past decade (or more) have resulted in improved tools for the analysis of residual stress effects on material performance. Technology is available, for example, to predict fatigue crack growth accounting for residual stress effects. By specifically accounting for residual stress effects in these calculations, designs can become more efficient and require lower safety margins. This leads to higher, more aggressive performance. One significant missing ingredient inhibiting the full accounting of residual stress in design is the fact that residual stress levels are typically not certified in the material supply chain. The development of a quality management system for residual stresses in forged aerospace components will enable material suppliers to certify the level of residual stress in their forged product, which will enable end users to specifically account for residual stress effects in design (and will result in significant positive benefit).

ABSTRACT: Due to their excellent strength-to-weight characteristics, integral components (i.e., thin-walled components machined from a single piece of material, which typically consist of a series of pockets, ribs, and stiffeners, have become commonplace on modern aircraft structure. The fabrication of integral components is a machining-intensive process that employs non-conventional machining at high material removal rates. One of the biggest limitations of high speed milling of integral structures is distortion, which results from changes in the residual stress state within the machined component. Excessive distortion can lead to the introduction of excessive fit-up stresses during assembly, can result in improper joints/connections, and can result in parts being scrapped. In certain instances, shops are allowed to use mechanical means (e.g., plastic bending over a fixture) to rectify some of the distortion. This can be effective, but is limited to use on simple geometry and this approach is lacking in quality and traceability. The proposed work plan will develop improved technology for correcting distortion (i.e., reshaping back within drawing tolerance) in complex aerospace parts. BENEFIT: The proposed shape correction technology would provide significant improvements to the efficiency of high speed machining processes. Currently, significant losses result from machined parts that are scrapped due to excessive distortion. Generally, significant machining has been performed on these parts prior to scrapping so the scrapped parts have considerable value. A process to efficiently and effectively correct the shape of these distorted parts and return them into the production supply offers the potential for significant cost savings relative to the current approach (scrapping these distorted parts). This technology is important to the aerospace community and is applicable to many other industries as well. For example, ships and space vehicles use similar integral components that have distortion related issues. Large welded structures like pressure vessels and industrial facilities are often adversely affected by distortion due to residual stresses from welding. As this technology becomes more mature there is an opportunity to apply it for benefit in other industries.
