Abstract Laser polishing (LP) of aluminium alloys by re-melting is particularly challenging due to their high thermal conductivity, diffusivity and reflectivity. In this research, a novel LP strategy is proposed to improve material’s re-melting by introducing a thermally insulating ceramic baseplate during nanosecond-pulsed laser polishing of selective laser melted (SLM) AlSi10Mg parts in atmospheric and argon environments. The strategy considerably improves the material’s re-melting as realised...

Abstract The aeronautical industry is constantly striving for goals related to lesser production/maintenance time and cost. In this regard, aero-engines made up of Nickel-based alloy are preferred for high performance to improve the burning efficiency. However, the processing of the Nickel-based alloys remain challenging in manufacturing industry with the aim of sustainable production. This research investigated the manufacturing progress of face milling of Inconel 718 by using two different lub...

Thermoplastic composite materials are emerging rapidly due to the flexibility of attaining customized mechanical and melt flow properties. Due to high ductility, toughness, recyclability, and thermal and electrical conductivity, there is ample scope of using copper particles in thermoplastics for 3d printing applications. In the present study, an attempt was made to investigate the Melt Flow Index (MFI), tensile strength, and electrical and thermal conductivity of nylon 6 and ABS (acrylonitrile ...

Abstract null null In this study, three SBCs are developed as (i) SBC with phase change material (PCM: waste cooking oil and C4H4O3), (ii) a novel SBC with nanocomposite PCM (NPCM), and (iii) a SBC without NPCM. The novel proposed cooker integrated with NPCM (MgAl2O4/Ni/Fe2O3-PCM) was experimentally developed and its performance was evaluated using fuzzy logic and Cramer's rules, and image processing techniques. The results indicated that the implementation of a bar plate absorber coated with Mg...

The well-known fact of metallurgy is that the lifetime of a metal structure depends on the material's corrosion rate. Therefore, applying an appropriate prediction of corrosion process for the manufactured metals or alloys trigger an extended life of the product. At present, the current prediction models for additive manufactured alloys are either complicated or built on a restricted basis towards corrosion depletion. This paper presents a novel approach to estimate the corrosion rate and corros...

In recent years, the engineering implications of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have progressed enormously due to their versatile characteristics. In particular, the role of CNTs in improving the tribological performances of various engineering materials is well documented in the literature. In this work, an investigation has been conducted to study the tribological behaviour of CNTs filled with glass-reinforced polymer (GFRP) composites in dry sliding, oil-lubricated, and gaseous (argon) environments ...

This paper’s persistence is to make an inclusive analysis of 268 documents about specific energy consumption (SEC) in machining operations from 2001 to 2020 in the Scopus database. A systematic approach collects information on SEC documents’ primary data; their types, publications, citations, and predictions are presented. The VOSviewer 1.1.16 and Biblioshiny 2.0 software are used for visualization analysis to show the progress standing of SEC publications. The selection criteria of documents ar...
