Failure Analysis Of An Hvac Flex Hose Connector

Published: 2014
Authors: Eric Guyer, Robert Kupkovits

Flexible hose connectors are common for fluid transmission applications where there is a need to accommodate the relative motion of system components. This work involved the failure of a flexible hose in a heating, ventilation, and cooling (HVAC) system which resulted in property damage.

Processing And Properties Of Aluminium Based Composites Reinforced With In-Situ Tib2 Particles

Published: 2014
Authors: A. Mandal, S. Deepak Kumar, M. Chakraborty

The present work highlights the synthesis, processing and characterization of Aluminium based in-situ metal matrix composites (MMCs) reinforced with titanium diboride (TiB2) particles created by an exothermic reaction of K2TiF6 and KBF4 with molten aluminium.

Laser Beam - Material Interaction And Thermal Absorption Model Validation

Published: 2014
Authors: Frederick Lia, Joshua Z. Park, Jay F. Tressler, Richard P. Martukanitz

A thermo-absorption mode l for calculation of the heat transfer is proposed and experimentally validated for a laser directed energy deposition process. The bulk absorption (P) may be defined as the ratio of the total power absorbed by the substrate (P abs) to the laser power presented to the substrate (Pi).

New Steel For Fabrication Of The Forged Forming Rolls

Published: 2014
Authors: Potapov A. A, Orlov G. A, Shestakova E. N

The article present high-carbon hypereutectoid steel for the production of hot rolling forged rolls. The steel contains 1.2 - 1.4 % carbon, carbide forming alloying elements Cr, Mo, V and Nb to improve the wear resistance of the roll, and Ni to increase the hardenability. Hot ductility of the steel has been investigated considering segregation of chemical elements in ingots weighing up to 20 tons.

Numerical Modeling Of The Dispersion Of Ceramic Nanoparticles During Ultrasonic Processing Of 6061-Based Nanocomposites

Published: 2014
Authors: D. Zhang, P.G. Allison, T.W. Rushing and L. Nastac

The metal-matrix-nano-composites (MMNCs) in this study consist of a 6061 alloy matrix reinforced with 1.0 wt.%SiC nanoparticles that are dispersed within the matrix using an ultrasonic cavitation dispersion technique available in the Solidification Laboratory at UA. The required ultrasonic parameters to achieve (i) the required stirring and cavitation for suitable degassing and refining of the aluminum alloy and (ii) the adequate fluid flow characteristics for uniform dispersion of the nanoparticles into the 6061 matrix are being investigated in this study by using an in-house developed CFD ultrasonic cavitation model.

Role Of Heating Conditions On Microcrack Formation In Zinc Coated 22Mnb5

Published: 2014
Authors: Vit Janik, Peter Beentjes, David Norman, Guido Hensen, Sridhar Seetharaman

Zinc coated steels for hot press forming are intended to offer active corrosion resistant ultrahigh strength steel for applications in the automotive industry. During hot-press forming, zinc can infiltrate the underlying grain boundaries during the heat and forming step, leading to intergranular cracking of the base metal.
