Title: Optimization of friction stir processing parameters on fabricated copper-graphite composites

Authors: V. Jeganathan*, R.S. Mishra, Mohd.  Tayyab,  Ranganath. M Singari

Abstract: Friction Stir Processing (FSP) was developed for microstructural modification of metallic materials. In this research work, the current state of understanding and development of the FSPed copper have been discussed. The research objectives are to study FSPed Cu with Graphite powder, to determine the microstructure, hardness, tensile strength and to optimize process parameters using DOE. The effect of friction stir processing (FSP) parameters such as tool rotational speed, processing speed, axial load, groove width and depth, investigated and the change in microstructure, hardness and tensile strength have been discussed. Copper is a highly useful engineering material. It is used for making power contactors, traction cables, bearings, bus bars etc. FSP has been successfully applied to copper with 99.9% purity to improve their mechanical properties. The optimum setting of design parameters corresponds to spindle speed of 900 rpm, feed of 25 mm/min and tilt angle of 2.5º. ANOVA table shows that the percentage contribution of speed is maximum. The most significant factor is speed followed by feed, axial load and tilt angle.

Title: Overview of Welding using Microwave Radiation

Authors: Uma Gautam*, Vipin

Abstract: The application of the microwaves is increasing rapidly in material processing due to its unique characteristics of volumetric and rapid heating. Volumetric heating means that materials can absorb microwave energy directly and internally and convert it to heat. Its characteristic leads to controlled, selective, uniform and rapid heating. Microwave energy can be used for the processing of a wide variety of materials, where heat is generated from within the material instead of via radiation heat transfer from external heating elements. This paper introduces microwave heating, its characteristics and effect of process parameter on welding. In this review paper, the work carried out by the researches in the field of microwave joining of similar and dissimilar materials in the past decade by various researchers.

Title: Pressure variation in abrasive flow Machining: Modelling and simulation         

Authors: K Srinivas, Anant Bhardwaj

Abstract: The improvement of manufacturing techniques has led to the development of new finishing techniques and abrasive flow machining has emerged as a potential tool in the field of surface finish. Abrasive flow Machining is a potential method for achieving surface finish up to Nano level. The requirement of improved surface finish has increased with the advancement of technologies which has led to the development various hybrids of abrasive flow machining. Over the year several research and experiment have been performed in this field with different parameters optimized with optimum techniques. The selection of proper viscoelastic fluid with suitable mixture of abrasive is a major requirement and thus there is a need for proper modelling and analysis of the process which is a major research gap in the process. This paper includes solid modelling of the process and simulation on Ansys Fluent module and analyse the pressure variation on the workpiece and its effect on material removal.

Title: Characterization of Compression Properties of Glass/Epoxy Laminates with and Without Graphite Particulate Filler         

Authors: H. Rama Murthy Naik, Ranganath M. Singari

Abstract: Composites have been used extensively in application such as aerospace, automotive and chemical. Therefore, there is a need for further studies on the properties of these materials. This  work presents the results of compression tests on the mechanical properties of composite materials. The laminates were fabricated by dry hand lay-up technique. The composite specimens were tested for compressive property determination. The compressive properties such as compressive strength, compressive load and elastic modulus were investigated by using fuel instruments and engineers’ private limited (FIE) machine in accordance with ASTM standards. Based on the results obtained, the longitudinal E11, transverse E22 and shear modulus G12 of 56.44 GPa, 9.0425 GPa and 6.1648 GPa for glass fiber/epoxy laminates, respectively, while the ultimate longitudinal XL, transverse XT and shear tensile τ0 strengths of 643.994MPa and 34.3598 MPa for glass fiber/epoxy laminates, respectively. The results from the tests have been  compared with results from analytical equations. Specimens were examined under scanning electron microscope (SEM) to study the microstructure of the fracture surfaces of samples.

Title: Numerical Analysis of Forced Draft Parallel Flow Shower Cooling Tower with Varying the Water to Air Mass Flow Ratio

Authors: Mohammad. Zunaid*, Qasim Murtaza, Samsher, Afzal Husain

Abstract: The performance of conventional cooling tower deteriorated due to decomposition of salt from water on fill. Therefore a forced draft parallel flow shower cooling tower (SCT) has been developed to overcome these difficulties. In SCT inlet hot water temperature are reduces when it come in contact of inlet air. This study presents three dimensional (3-D) computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis of forced draft parallel flow SCT to predict its exit conditions by varying the inlet water to air mass flow ratio (RLG). The model has validated with experimental results. It has been observed that thermal efficiency of SCT decreases with increasing the inlet RLG.

Title: Influence of The Machining Parameters for Surface Roughness in Turning of Aluminium Metal Matrix Composites

Authors:  Varsha Pathak*,  Ranganath M. Singari, Vipin, Ravi Butola, Mohd Tayyab

Abstract: In manufacturing industries, for determining the quality, surface finish of a product is very important. This study focuses on different effects due to different reinforcement on aluminium based metal matrix composite. The objective of the current research is to minimize surface roughness. Al 7075 is used as a matrix and as reinforcement RHA & GSA are used in varying proportion i.e.2%, 3.5%, 5% respectively. Different cutting parameters have different influence on the surface finish. The specimen was turned under different levels of parameters and measured the surface roughness using a Taylor Hobson’s Surtronic 3+. From hardness test it is concluded that metal matrix composites (Al-RHA-GSA) have higher hardness value than pure Al 7075 alloy and as the increase in percentage of reinforcement, hardness value also increases.

Title:  Alternative Fuel CNG For Bengaluru Municipal Transport Corporation Buses

Authors: Shivaji Bhandarkar

Abstract: This paper deals with the exhaust emissions emitted by the Diesel buses of Bengaluru Municipal Transport Corporation buses in Bengaluru and suggestions to reduce the emission levels by the use of an alternative clean fuel CNG. The pollution loads have been calculated and compared by considering usage of the Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) in place of conventional diesel buses. In this study, the Bengaluru Municipal Transport Corporation was considered and collected the required information such as the total number of buses, daily kilometres operated by the BMTC buses. These buses run on diesel fuel and are responsible for largest amount of lead emissions and various other pollutants. The pollution loads calculated on the basis of information collected from the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), Environment Protection Agency and previous studies carried out in this regard by various important agencies. The use of CNG shows tremendous reduction in various pollutants in gm/km. By the use of CNG we can find 84% reduction in CO, 58% reduction in NOx and 97% reduction in PM.
