Abstract: The current tendencies in automotive industry need intensive investigation in problems of interaction of active safety systems with brake system equipment. Disc brakes use a flat, disc-shaped metal rotor that spins with the wheel. When the brakes are applied, a caliper squeezes the brake pads against the disc, slowing the wheel. The main motive is to Finding the difference in frequency curve of the disc brake rotor by artificially creating a crack in the disc brake rotor. By using Finite Element Analysis and developing an equation between natural frequency and crack depth. This equation can be used to predict or identify the crack depth on disc

Abstract: Heavy duty excavators are operated during the excavation process the unknown resistive forces offered by the terrain to the bucket teeth is transformed to the other parts via bucket linkage. Excessive amount of these forces adversely affected on the bucket link therefore the optimization of bucket linkage is done on the maximum breakout forces which are exerted on it during operation. Thus, it is very much necessary to provide not only a better design of parts having maximum reliability but also of minimum weight and keeping design safe under all loading conditions.

Abstract: In many industrial applications, water hammer causes damage to pipes, valves, flanges, etc. In boilers, when valves becomes damaged large quantities of steam begin blowing out, which could lead to a serious accident .Also it causes bending and bursting of pipes. It creates vibrations in steam line and also creates noise. Therefore research on water hammer and its effects has become a major area of concern for many researchers. It is necessary to study water hammer in steam power plants to avoid damage and huge maintenance cost leading to long life of the power plant. It plays a vital role in the human safety of thermal power plant. Researchers have focused on study............

Abstract: The Emissions from combustion of fuels such as petrol and diesel in I.C. engines and the particulate matter released have been major part of the air pollution sources, especially in urban areas. It has always been the cause of severe public health issues for so long. A lot of research has been carried out in the field of reduction of these pollutants since diesel engines came into prime use. The Main emissions from a diesel engine are Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx), Carbon Monoxide (CO), Oxides of Sulphur (SOx) and particulate matter (PM). The use of an emulsion of diesel in water as a fuel has been a recent subject of study in this sector...............

Abstract: Aluminum and Copper has more significance in electrical and electronic application such as solar energy collectors or light weight electric motors and actuators. It combines comparably good thermal and electrical properties with attractive price and low material weight. However the main difficulty for widespread use of aluminum is the lack of reliable joining process to connect it with copper. The Intermetallic formation during welding of copper and aluminum are caused by large misalignment in physical properties and even more poor metallurgical affinity of both materials and therefore crack sensitivity and formation of brittle intermetallic phase during fusion welding................

Country : India
Authors : S. S. Pawar || K. H. Inamdar
: 10.9790/1684-17010057580     logo

Abstract: In this paper quality characteristics of plasma cutting process for stainless steel 316l plates with different thickness are analyzed through experiments. The quality of the cut has been monitored by measuring kerf width and taper. Plate with thickness 4 mm, 8 mm and 12 mm are cut with different combination of input parameters as per the DoE. Input parameters used for experimental work are cutting speed, arc voltage and gas pressure. Effect of each process parameter on quality characteristic of cut is determined by using ANOVA. It is found that arc voltage was the major influencing parameter which affects kerf followed by cutting speed, and gas pressure. Whereas taper, influenced by cutting speed followed by arc voltage, and gas pressure. These two quality characteristics were optimized by using Grey Relational Analysis.

Abstract: Investigations have been carried out over decades to enhance the heat transfer using active, passive and compound heat augmentation techniques. The present work includes passive heat transfer augmentation technique using non-metallic flow divider type inserts with air as working fluid. Whenever inserts are used for heat transfer enhancement, along with increase in heat transfer rate, the pressure drop also increases. This increase in pressure drop increases the pumping cost. Hence heat augmentation technique should optimize between the benefits of heat transfer rate and increased pressure drop. Initially, for validation of setup, experiments were carried out for plain tube................
