Bio-quenchants for heat transfer applications

Figure: Rapid Quenching Setup

The setup used for evaluation of Rapid cooling or quenching of a part from high temperature which can cause large thermal gradients and thus thermal stresses. If a phase transformation occurs simultaneously, phase transformation dilatations will add to the thermal dilatations and contribute to the internal stress distribution. The effect can be that local nonelastic deformations occur which will cause residual stresses when the part has attained its final temperature. The thermal and transformation processes are normally very rapid, and it is not possible to follow the stress buildup experimentally. Therefore computer modeling has been very important in increasing the understanding of the physical processes. The computed residual stresses can be verified experimentally. Experimental setup is very important to thermal analysis of solid quenched specimen.

“EXPLOSIVES AND THEIR MILITARY AND NON-MILITARY APPLICATION”

By

Dr. Suresh G Kulkarni
Adjunct Professor
Defense Institute of Advanced Technology (DU), Girinagar
Pune – 411025

 

A talk on the topic “Explosives and their Military and Non Military Application” was delivered by Dr. Suresh G Kulkarni on 16th September 2019 as a Departmental Forum Activity.

 

In the talk he spoke about types of explosion which include mechanical, nuclear and chemical. He mainly spoke about the applications of these explosives in various field. He started his session by giving a brief introduction on missiles and its requirements. He gave details about the substances which are explosives like peroxides/ozonides, chlorates/perchlorates, nitro azides fulminates acetylides halides of nitrogen organometalic etc.

 

He gave the classification of explosives and explained about the type of explosives used in different military applications. Nature of military explosives compounds include compounds of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen arranged in a particular sequence like C-H-N-O where C-H are Fuel Elements, O is oxidizer N is binder/Bridge between fuel and oxidizer.

 

Talk by Dr. S G Kulkarni

He explained about the role of nitrogen in explosives which includes acting as a bridge  between  fuel  and  oxidizer imparts  explosive  property  in  the  form of ‘nitro’ (no2) group on  initiation,  nitrogen  is  knocked off and comes  out  as  N2  gas  which  contributes  to gaseous  output  as  well  as  heat of explosion nitrogen  in  the  form  of  ‘amino’  group (NH2) imparts  heat resistance / improved  stability nitrogen  rich  compounds – emerging  as  new insensitive  yet  powerful  high  explosives.

Classification of Explosives

He gave enormous examples of explosives and he classified it as primary and secondary explosives.

 

Types of Explosives

 

Explosives cannot be used in loose powder form for reasons of safety and reliability in initiations and performance. So they are converted into different forms like cast, pressed, extruded, putties (Plastic explosives), Plastic bonded explosives, sheet explosives (Rolled) etc.

 

Explosives release their energy by decomposition when suitably initiated. This decomposition reaction is ‘combustion’ reaction. This combustion is of two types

 

  1. a) Deflagration: Initiated by flame, heat, spark, friction
  2. b) Detonation: Initiated by shock (shock phenomenon)

 

Deflagration may sometime get converted into detonation if conditions are favorable. This is called as ‘Deflagration to Detonation Transition’ (DDT)

If r ≥ 1000 m/s – low order detonation

r ≥  5000 m/s    – high order detonation

Conditions for DDT are degree of confinement, material thickness magnitude of energy produced surface area, particle size.

 

P-t Profile

 

Explosives (propellant or high explosive) must be initiated by use of ‘explosive train’ only. Explosive train is an arrangement used to lead explosive reactions from one place to another. A great deal of safety & reliability is achieved by use of ‘trains’.

Unintended initiations of ammunitions can be avoided.

 

Propellant Train

 

The functions of each components of propellant were explained by the speaker. Primer cap is used to give a spit of flame when initiated (by impact etc). Igniter gives longer lasting flame / hotter flames. Propellant responds to strong / hot flames from igniter burns rapidly to produce hot gases (for propulsion).

 

He then explained about different application of explosives like in military war-head filling in-shells, bombs, grenades torpedoes, shaped charges and missiles. In commercial coal mining, tunneling, other mining, detonating cords, canopy severance systems, air crew ejection systems, high altitude fuel , air re-generating composition. In nuclear triggering device for implosion type of weapon based on fission or fusion. In space launch vehicles for stage separation. In metallurgical metal- metal bonding explosive metal working – explosive cladding, welding cop action forming and in agriculture, medical industry, food industry, oil and gas industry.

 

He concluded the session by urging students and faculties to be part of the explosives based research and also suggested final year students to do project based on the same as there is an MOU signed between both the institutes. Both faculties as well as students are welcome to the institute any time and can conduct their work there.

 

The session was concluded with an interaction with students and faculties.

 

A token of appreciation was awarded by Prof K V Suresh

He explained how Dr .Kurien was integral part to convert India from importing milk nation to the largest milk exporters in the world. He started working in a government diary as a manager which he was less interested when a situation made Dr. Kurien to become general manager of Kiara district milk union which is considered to be the first step in white revolution. This sudden transformation of Dr. Kurien was due to the spark ignited by Tribhuvandas a visionary leader and Sardar Vallabhai Patel, which became the first movement of white revolution. The strike led by these people for the milk farmers of the country was successful after colonial government agreed to let the farmers form their cooperatives. Kaira District Co-operative started with two small village level societies collecting just 250 litres of Milk per day in 1946, became a Dairy giant handling 22 million litres of Milk per day.

 

Co-operative Movement which led to the creation of farmers own co-operatives

 

He told about AMUL which was formed by Dr. Kurien in 1960 which become the role model for India in milk dairy. Then the “AMUL PATTERN” was placed in every part of India under leadership of Dr. Kurien. The AMUL Pattern dairy become a support for the rural farmers which made the social and economical stable to many of farmer’s family which was the very necessary step after Independence.

 

He gave the information about the NDDB (NATIONAL DAIRY DEVELOPMENT BOARD) which was founded by the Dr. Kurien in 1965. He also told the how NDDB works. And also described the current scenario about India’s milk production growth which is first in the world. 

 

The talk was inspirational as it covers every aspects of Dr. Kurien’s life which makes feel proud about his unaccountable to work to nation which inspires to work for society and nation.

 

At the concluding, speaker spoke about his visit to Michigan University where he handed over a bust of Dr. Varghese Kurien which is installed in the lobby of international centre as a symbol of respect to the great revolutionary.

Prof. Satyanarayana welcoming Dr. G.R REDDY

A talk on the topic “Nuclear Power Plant” was delivered by Dr.  G.R.REDDY on 21th October 2019 as a Departmental Forum Activity.

Dr. G.R.Reddy’s talk mainly focused on the safety of nuclear power plants. In a construction of any nuclear infrastructure the main three things that should be taken in to consideration and those are structure, pipelines and instruments.

 

Students Present During the Session

He spoke about the history of nuclear power generation in India. The Indian research was discussed in the beginning and later onwards he spoke about the establishment of the first nuclear power in India that includes both research centre and also power plants.

He gave an idea about the basic nuclear fission process that is really important for the power generation in the power plant. After the process properly understood, he explained about the three phase of power generation which are,

  • Stage 1 – PAWR’s
  • Stage 2 – FBR’s
  • Stage 3 – AHWR’s

Design features of the nuclear plant were discussed in the talk. The main aspect in design of any nuclear power plant mainly focuses on the safety issues. The safety is based on the total safety of the system, components and the humans.

 

Dr. G.R.Reddy explaining about nuclear fission

During any casualties and malfunctions, the hazards are classified into four classes namely class 1, class 2, class 3 and class 4. This four classes give the overall hazard intensity. The class 1 is a defined as high hazard in which the public around the plants are affected and coming down to other classes in a decreasing order the hazard rate decreases.

For establishment of any power plants there are some basic things to look into i.e, starting with the land selection which should be as far from the human habitation, since in case of some casualties it should not harm any human beings living there. Next on the list is the Hydro-Geology.

 

Dr. G.R.Reddy interacting with students

This mainly depends on the ground water levels and movements of the plates or contents. Next is a good transportation facilities and proper and well-conditioned roods, rail transportation and density of public must be very low. The flooding potential of the land must also be taken into consideration while deciding the land for the setup of the power plant.

Coming to the safety classification of the plant. The first thing to consider is the quality of the plant structure, materials and components. The last and most important work is the Re-Evaluation of the whole plant before construction and after its final finish.

 

Memento was given to the speakers as a token of gratitude

The talk was motivating and inspiring to all the students and faculty members of the department and it has brought awareness among all the people present about the danger and harms of nuclear power plants. Also the methods to prevent such hazards are clearly discussed in the talk, which gives all the students an open window to explore and develop new innovative ideas to make it safer and functional.

Coal Combustion and its effect on High temperature Boiler components in Thermal Power Plants

Dr. M G Ananda Kumar, Engineering Officer Gr.4/ Head- Training Division, Central Power Research Institute (CPRI), (2 March 2019)

 Talk by Dr. M G Ananda Kumar

 

Initially, a video related to the profile of Central Power Research Institute (CPRI) was presented. He said, CPRI has a vast experience and expertise in the areas of material characterization, simulation, diagnostic, calibration, and system analysis. CPRI also provides the consultancy services on various needs of power sector besides offering Customised Training Programmes. It has been extending its services for over five decades to industries in their quest for innovation, new product development, import substitution, quality assurance etc.

 

In his presentation, emphasis on Coal Analysis and Testing Laboratory was highlighted. He said, coal based power generation accounts for over 83% of India’s thermal power capacity. There is about 20% short fall of domestic coal supply in the country based on the forecast made by Coal India Ltd for the next 5 years. It was also expressed that, the imported coal is being blended with Indian coals and fired in the thermal power plants. There are crucial issues involved in respect of firing blended coals in existing Indian thermal power plants, as the boilers are designed for Indian coal characteristics.

 

Types of coals available in India

 

He said, some of the properties like thermal input and overall ash loading can be predicted from the blend ratio of the constituent coals, but not all the other properties. Some of the qualitative properties like grindability, ash fusion temperature, combustion reactivity, etc are generally non additive. This leads to unexpected problems like reduced mill efficiency, clinker formation, increased unburnts in ash, etc. In this context, fixing blend proportion based only on ash load and heat value is questionable.

 

Then, the talk was directed towards RLA (Remaining life assessment) methodology and types of tests carried out during RLA. Remaining life assessment is an estimate of the reliability of a product in its life cycle application environment based on health monitoring and prognostics analyses. The purposes of RLA Technology are Escalating cost of new units, Extended lead times in plant construction, Increasingly stringent environment and safety  regulations, Increasing awareness of the technological feasibility of extending component life, Metallurgical damage through thermally induced,     degradation, Service sponsored  damage (creep, thermal fatigue, fatigue),   Mechanical damages (Fly ash erosion), Metal Oxidation / Corrosion,   Chemical damage due to disturbance in feed water quality, Operation outside design limits.

 

He said, there are three methods of RLA,

Level – 1  : 

  • Operational history
  • Review of historical problems

Level – II  :  

  • Detailed Inspection Plan
  • Identification of critical components
  • Analysis of root cause of problems

Level – III  :

  • Non-destructive Examination
  •  

Fig : Typical boiler component inspection for RLA study

        
Fig : Inspection of turbine components for RLA study

 

He talked on Assessment of Microstructural Degradation in which the following tests/methods to be followed

Laboratory Evaluation  –        Destructive in nature  Sampling of tubing required  Limitations – sampling

In-Situ Metallography  –     No Sampling Is Required  On Site Assessment  By Replication Technique

Result      –   Stages of graphitiztion Inspection interval strategies Qualitative assessment

 

In his presentation he said, oxide scale in boiler tube produced by oxidation of tube metal, (steam side – tube internal), Compound of Complex iron oxides. Due to oxidation , Reduces heat transfer, Increases tube metal temperature,  Increases the rate of scale formation, Reduces  the effective wall thickness,    and hence the operating stress, Promote creep in tube metal.

Oxide layer formation in the boiler tube

He spoke on Methodology for Oxide Scale Measurements 

Conventional  :   Destructive Technique,Lab. Evaluation of samples  cut and  removed  from component  by  Optical or Scanning Electron Microscopy

Advanced        :   Non – Destructive Evaluation, Ultrasonic   technique  using high frequency, special long delay line probes

 

In concluded that, Comprehensive evaluation of Remaining life of tubes taking into account of fire side corrosion and metallurgical degradation Advanced NDE methods  viz. UT using EMATs, Phased array UT for turbine components, Small punch tests for embrittlement  studies etc are required.

 

The main benefits of this talk are students (U.G and P.G sections) and faculty members of the department got exposure to understanding  concept of coal analysis and their characterisation. The talk was specially appreciated by faculty members who have registered for Ph.D course (both thermal and materials background) since the talk was specific to their subject. In conclusion the talk was benefited for U.G, P.G and faculty members of the department.

Smart materials

Dr. Mahagundappa M. Benal, H.O.D, Department of Mechanical Engineering,  Govt. Engineering College, Kushalnagara, (15 March 2019)

 

Talk by Dr. M M Benal

Speaker said that, Smart materials have properties that react to changes in their environment. This means that one of their properties can be changed by an external condition, such as temperature, light, pressure, electricity, voltage, pH, or chemical compounds. This change is reversible and can be repeated many times.

 

Types of Smart Materials are Piezoelectrics: Piezoelectric materials convert electrical energy to mechanical energy, Shape Memory Alloys, Magnetostrictive,

Shape Memory Polymers, Hydrogels, Electroactive Polymers, Bi-Component Fibers.

 

Speaker said that, smart materials and structures will solve engineering problems with hitherto unachievable efficiency, and provide an opportunity for new wealth creating products. Potential applications of such adaptive materials range from the ability to control the aero-elastic form of an aircraft wing, thus minimising drag and improving operational efficiency, to vibration control of lightweight structures such as satellites, and power pick-up pantographs on trains.

 

He conveyed students that Smart materials have drawn substantial attention and interest in a broad range of applications, due to their unique and superior characteristics. However there is a blurry image over the potential applications of smart materials in consumer durables. This has stalled further research and decision making in innovating consumer durables based on smart material technologies. Therefore, cross-disciplinary research between the domain of material engineering and product design, through dedicated methods and software tools are necessary in order to improve the situation.

Self-Empowerment

Mr. Jayashanker Rai, General Manger, Mangalore Chemicals and Fertilizers Ltd (MCF), Mangalore, (18 March 2019)

Talk by Jayashanker Rai

Speaker said that Personal empowerment is about looking at who you are and becoming more aware of yourself as a unique individual. Personal empowerment involves developing the confidence and strength to set realistic goals and fulfil your potential. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses and a range of skills that are used in everyday situations, but all too often people remain unaware of, or undervalue, their true abilities.

 

A person aiming for empowerment is able to take control of their life by making positive choices and setting goals.  Developing self-awareness, an understanding of your strengths and weaknesses – knowing your own limitations is key to personal empowerment.

 

The talk was focussed on What does it mean to be self empowered? How do you teach self empowerment? What is the aim of empowerment? What is the importance of empowering individuals? How can you empower a person? Why is empowerment important in leadership? What are the empowerment skills? How do you empower yourself? How can we empower others? What are the 5 types of empowerment?

 

Speaker concluded that, taking steps to set and achieve goals – both short and longer-term and developing new skills, acts to increase confidence which, in itself, is essential to self-empowerment. In conclusion the talk was benefited for U.G and faculty members of the department.

Efficiency Improvement of Biomass Based Thermal Power Plant

Dr. R. Hafeez Basha

Chief Technology Officer, Station-H Corporation (Non-profit), Mentor for Change at Atal Innovation Mission at NITI-Aayog (Planning Commission), Hyderabad.

Talk by Dr. R. Hafeez Basha

Biomass is a derivative of waste materials from various natural sources that exists in different forms depending upon its composition in content. However, the choice of biomass type based on its availability alters the values of the calorie and thermal efficiency. In the technical talk, the use of information technology in developing the renewable fuel by increasing the thermal performance and reducing the cost was highlighted by Dr. R. Hafeez Basha, Mentor for Change at Atal Innovation Mission at NITI-Aayog (Planning Commission), Hyderabad.

 

Talk by Dr. R. Hafeez Basha

 

Speaker mainly focussed on his outcomes of research obtained at Kumamoto University, Japan during his doctoral research. He said that, biomass samples (Wood Pellet and rice husk with different weight percentage) were configured into the database management system using the user interface system of the computer model which was self-developed by his team in the laboratory. The computer model was coded with moisture content feature that would influence the thermal output significantly, producing advanced material from combustible waste and also reducing global warming and pollution. The user can enter the value of moisture content in terms of percentage in each sample of biomass while entering the composition parameters itself which is the uniqueness of model. He also highlighted that; the model will be useful in determining the optimum composition of biomass and preparing its sample accordingly.

 

It was observed that the performance of samples during the combustion was extremely poor at 30% moisture content in biomass and the combustion halted when moisture percentage exceeded beyond 30%. The samples cannot be experimented if the moisture content is high and needs pre-treatment so that the percentage falls below 30%. The talk was concluded that, the method and model shall reduce the dependency on pre-treatment methods to increase the calorie of fuel when used in place of coal in the thermal power plants. However reduction in percentage of moisture content is considered critical in order to get better performance and avoid wastage of fuel. Natural drying techniques are still suitable for most users while preparing the biomass composition, however if the user desires to get better efficiency some of the forced drying techniques also need to be considered.

The talk was specially appreciated by faculty members those are pursuing Ph.D course in the area of thermal engineering. Since the talk was specific to their subject. In conclusion the talk was benefited for U.G and faculty members of the department.

In fact, they’ve changed the way we marketers look at customers and delivered something of a marketing revolution. Nowhere is the group more important than in India. A talk on Indian Millennials: Facts and Figures was delivered by Sri. Manojit Acharya, Managing Director, Jungheinrich Lift Truck India, Pvt Ltd, Mumbai.

 

Speaker said that, those under 35 represent a large proportion (65%) of the Indian population, They are undoubtedly better educated and more tech savvy than their predecessors, They are more likely to engage and shop online. And they have a clear set of characteristics that define how marketing companies and brands should engage with them.

 

While earlier generations migrated to digital media, millennials were the first to be digital natives. They grew up with this stuff and are certainly more comfortable with it than their parents. This tech, lifestyle and social landscape has not only defined how these people work but how they play, shop and aspire to greater things.

 

Speaker highlighted the four areas of technology that businesses should remain at the forefront of to attract and retain the best talent:

  1. Education 2. Communication 3. Artificial Intelligence 4. Project Management

 

He said that, Millennials are eager to learn and grow, and businesses should be willing to accommodate that. With e-learning technology solutions, businesses can deliver training via progressive and more cost-effective channels, such as learning management systems, podcasts and on-demand videos. He stressed that, According to PwC (pricewaterhousecoopers), millennials also expect to communicate through social networking, instant messaging, blogs and wikis — in other words, all the different types of technology they have grown up using. Workplaces that make it easier for millennials to exchange information in a way that is natural to them will foster greater productivity.

 

He conveyed students that, Businesses also need to help their employees gain the skills needed to take full advantage of Artificial Intelligence (AI). According to the 2016 Dell & Intel Future Workforce Study Global Report, 56% of millennials believe that AI leads to more productivity in the workplace. Automation of routine and mundane tasks gives employees more time to focus on creative, human and value-added work.

 

In the talk speaker specifically said that, management and completion of work are changing. Instead of adjusting to one enterprise-wide project management system, millennials opt to use the best software tools to complete specific tasks. At the end he concluded that, talent is becoming more and more tech-fluent, and the expectations for attracting and maintaining talent will only continue to grow. Businesses that recognize and accommodate these shifts will see higher employee engagement, satisfaction and retention.

Synergism in material systems: Polymer matrix composites

Dr. Anandhan Srinivasan, Professor and HOD, Department of Metallurgical & Materials Engineering National Institute of Technology, Karnataka, Surathkal.

Talk by Dr. Anandhan Srinivasan

Polymer matrix composites (PMCs) are comprised of a variety of short or continuous fibers bound together by an organic polymer matrix. Unlike a ceramic matrix composite (CMC), in which the reinforcement is used primarily to improve the fracture toughness, the reinforcement in a PMC provides high strength and stiffness. The PMC is designed so that the mechanical loads to which the structure is subjected in service are supported by the reinforcement. The function of the matrix is to bond the fibers together and to transfer loads between them.

 

Professors said that aerospace applications of advanced composites account for about 50 percent of current sales. Sporting goods, such as golf clubs and tennis rackets, account for another 25 percent. The sporting goods market is considered mature, with projected annual growth rates of 3 percent. Automobiles and industrial equipment round out the current list of major users of PMCs, with a 25 percent share.

 

The next major challenge for PMCs will be use in large military and commercial transport aircraft. PMCs currently comprise about 3 percent of the structural weight of commercial aircraft such as the Boeing 757, but could eventually account for more than 65 percent. Because fuel savings are a major reason for the use of PMCs in commercial aircraft, fuel prices must rise to make them competitive. The largest volume opportunity for PMCs is in the automobile. PMCs currently are in limited production in body panels, drive shafts, and leaf springs. Professor gave incite on principle, production and applications of PMCs and mainly focussing on Research and Development Priorities. Determination of mechanical properties of PMCs was explained in the talk.

 

Speaker concluded that, there will no doubt give composite materials a lot of development opportunities and challenges by Providing services for information technology, making contributions to improve the quality of human life, Making contributions to solve the shortage of resources and the energy crisis. The talk was specially appreciated by students and faculty members specially those are pursuing Ph.D course in the area of materials engineering. In conclusion the talk was benefited for U.G and faculty members of the department.

Mechanical Aspects of Gas Turbine Engines

Mr. C. Veera Sesha Kumar, Senior Scientist, CSIR-National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL) Bangalore

Talk by Mr. C. Veera Sesha Kumar

At the outset Scientist introduced National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL) to students and faculties. Indicating that, NAL is a constituent of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), India, established in the year 1959 is the only government aerospace R&D laboratory in the country’s civilian sector. CSIR- NAL is a high-technology oriented institution focusing on advanced disciplines in aerospace.

 

He said, the aerothermal design of advanced gas turbines has progressed significantly in the last decade, primarily due to the requirement of increased turbine efficiencies and power. Performance increases are driven not only for reducing the consumption of fuel and the subsequent cost benefits, but also to reduce the emissions of CO2, which is a primary component for the increased global warming.

 

It was highlighted that, over the last decade, major gas turbine performance enhancements have been achieved by the use of higher turbine inlet temperatures and pressures, design of advanced turbine aerodynamics, through reductions in turbine cooling and leakage air, and via the introduction of new high temperature alloys, metallic antioxidation coatings, and thermal barrier coatings.

 

The talk was further discussed on the operation of a gas turbine, design consideration of cooled turbine blades Turbine blade thermal analysis and Detailed aerothermal designs.

 

Scientist concluded that the aerothermal design of gas turbine components has progressed at a rapid pace in the last decade with all gas turbine manufacturers, in order to obtain higher thermodynamic efficiencies. This has been achieved by using higher turbine inlet temperatures and pressures, advanced turbine aerodynamics, efficient cooling systems for turbine airofoils and advanced high temperature alloys, metallic coatings, and ceramic thermal barrier coatings.

 

Due to the complexity of the heat transfer phenomenon associated with gas turbine airofoils, it is also relatively common that final airofoil designs are thermally validated in several validation carriers which are representative of engine conditions. These validation carriers include high speed cascade rigs, scaled perspex models, airflow and qualitative heat transfer flow benches, and gas turbine test engines.

The talk was appreciated by students and faculty members especially students are in 5th semester because there are learning turbo machinery subject. In conclusion the talk was benefited for U.G and faculty members of the department memento to Mr. C. Veera Sesha Kumar was presented by HOD Dr. Harishanand K S.

In an inaugural address, Dr. S. Shyam Rao, Chairman-ICSKC said, engineering materials such as metals, ceramics, composites, polymers and nano materials/composites etc., are important in everyday life because of their versatile structural properties. He also spoke that, vital properties to be considered for the selection of ceramic materials are mechanical, electrical, thermal, magnetic and optical properties. However, selection of ceramic materials for use at elevated temperatures and/or temperature changes require an engineer/researcher to know and understand their thermal properties.   Professor stresses that, it is important to know and understand the thermal properties of engineering materials especially ceramics, because thermal expansion is the root cause for thermal stresses. Inturn thermal stresses are leading to failure of engineering structures at elevated temperatures. Hence, understanding the thermal properties of ceramic materials will help us to choose the right materials to manage heat flows. The Presidential remarks were given by Dr. Peter Fernandes, Principal, AIET and program was concluded by Vote of Thanks by workshop coordinator  Dr. Satyanarayan, Associate Professor and Head, Dept. of Mechanical Engg, AIET.

DEVELOPMENT OF ALMUNINUM- SILICON CARBIDE METAL MATRIX COMPOSITE FOR CONNECTING ROD

Metal Matrix Composites (MMCs) always remained as interesting materials for potential applications in aerospace and automotive industries owing to their superior strength to weight ratio and high temperature resistance. The widespread adoption of particulate metal matrix composites for engineering applications has been hindered by the high cost of producing components. Although several technical challenges exist with casting technology yet it can be used to overcome this problem. Achieving a uniform distribution of reinforcement within the matrix is one such challenge, which affects directly on the properties and quality of composite material.

 

Our students of mechanical engineering studying in fifth semester 2019-20 batch attempted an innovative activity to get hands on experience of following:

  • Application of aluminium material melting
  • Methods to be followed to Improve yield by reducing dross losses
  • Casting techniques

Introduction

 Computer Graphics-Aided Three-Dimensional Interactive Application (CATIA) is the world’s leading computer-aided design (CAD)/computer-aided manufacturing (CAM)/computeraided engineering (CAE) package. Developed by Dassault System and marketed worldwide by IBM, CATIA delivers one of the best Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions. It provides a single platform to design, analyze, and manufacture a product; this makes the product development faster and easier. CATIA is used by various industries, including automobiles, aerospace, industrial equipment, and ship building. CATIA Version 6 (V6) was first released in mid-2008. The new CATIA V6 user interface allows designers to directly work with solid models rather than using the feature-based design approach of CATIA V5.

 

Key Main Features:

A number of enhancements were made to CATIA V6 to make the process of product development easier and faster as compared to the previous versions of CATIA. The key enhancements made in CATIA V6 are as follows: · Global collaborative innovation · Real-time working environment · Single platform for product development · Systems engineering improvements We discuss each of these enhancements in detail. Catia V6.

 

Global Collaborative Innovation:

The users of CATIA V6 can access the collaborative threedimensional (3D) environment of Dassault System that allows an unlimited number of online users from all over the world to participate in the virtual 3D brainstorming conference. Once connected, users can use the online collaborative tools available for 3D brainstorming to coreview and co-design the product. With CATIA V6, designers, engineers, and even the prospective users of the product are able to collaborate on the product in such a way as if they were together in the same room. CATIA also supports asynchronous collaboration among users, which means that even the offline users can share the changes made in the product.

 

Real-Time Working Environment:

CATIA V6 provides a unique real-time working environment to design highly realistic 3D models. For example, it allows different groups of users, related to customer services, technical training, and maintenance operations, to interact with each other and create enhanced 3D-based composite documents for all types of products by using their company’s existing PLM investments. It also provides new materials, effects, and paint shaders to give a realistic appearance to virtual models. Single Platform for Product Development A new product goes through various stages from design to manufacturing during its development life cycle. CATIA V6 reduces the complexity of developing a product by allowing the integration of various product development approaches within a single platform. It allows you to store the data related to all the phases, such as designing and manufacturing, of a project at a single place from where it can be accessed and used by the designers, engineers, and manufacturers working on the project. Systems Engineering Improvements: Systems engineering has evolved as a collective, integrated, and multidisciplinary model for product development to manage the increasing complexity of products and projects. It enables you to produce systems that satisfy customer needs and reduce risk as well as the costs associated with the development of a project. CATIA V6 has introduced a unique requirements, functional, logical, and physical (RFLP) approach that provides a comprehensive and collaborative definition across different views (requirements, functional, logical, and physical) of a product. In other words, the RFLP approach simplifies the product development process by allowing you to work on different views of a product by bringing them together on the same platform.

Recent Trends in Nanotechnology

National Level workshop report on

 “Recent Trends in Nanotechnology”

held 18th & 19th Jan 2016

  • Chief guest of the inaugural function: Dr. Dinesh Rangappa
  • President of the inaugural function: Dr. Peter Fernandes
  • Vote of thanks of the inaugural function : Dr. Raghavendra Rao
  • Introduction of Chief Guest: Prof. K. V. Suresh
  • Coordinator :- Prof .Kiran H

 

In his chief guest’s speech, Dr. Dinesh Rangappa stressed on interdisciplinary team work. He also advised the society to change its attitude in the field of research. He insisted colleges to come up with more and more research programmes get acquainted with the government funded projects and build teams of research fellows of interdisciplinary areas. He was also more concerned about the issues with the basic sciences. He emphasised on the importance of working on basic sciences rather than mere concentrating on the technology side. During his speech, he also quoted that ”our success will be measured by others but our satisfaction should be measured by ourselves”. So, he insisted on striving for the satisfaction rather than success.

 

Dr. Peter Fernandes, president of the inaugural function

 

President of the inaugural function, Dr. Peter Fernandes, in this presidential speech, insisted on conducting these kinds of workshops at least for one week so that more amount of knowledge can be shared in the respective areas. He also advised faculties to replenish themselves and upgrade their knowledge by attending these kinds of workshops.
