This volume presents research papers on micro and nano manufacturing and surface engineering which were presented during the 7th International and 28th All India Manufacturing Technology, Design and Research conference 2018 (AIMTDR 2018). The papers discuss the latest advances in miniature manufacturing, the machining of miniature components and features as well as improvement of surface properties. This volume will be of interest to academicians, researchers, and practicing engineers alike.
This book presents select proceedings of the International Conference on Recent Advances in Mechanical Engineering Research and Development (ICRAMERD 2020). The contents focus on latest research and current problems in various branches of mechanical engineering. Some of the topics discussed here include fracture and failure analysis, fuels and alternative fuels, combustion and IC engines, advanced manufacturing technologies, powder metallurgy and rapid prototyping, industrial engineering and automation, supply chain management, design of mechanical systems, vibrations and control engineering, automobile engineering, fluid mechanics and machines, heat transfer, composite materials, micro and nano-engineering for energy storage and conversion, and modeling and simulations. The wide range of topics presented in this book can make it useful for beginners, researchers as well as professionals in mechanical engineering.
This book focuses on strengthening and joining materials by means of plastic deformation, gathering extended research papers presented at the AIMTDR 2016 conference. Plastic deformation is used in materials processing to improve the strength of the material. For example, the rod/screw used to connect the cooker handle to the main body has to be strong and sustainable; such rods can be strengthened by plastic deformation (using multi-stage forming operations etc.). Similarly, joining by means of plastic deformation is highly valuable since it avoids the material and environmental degradation often caused by fusion welding processes. The book discusses various processing techniques in which plastic deformation is used to strengthen materials - e.g. in equal channel angular extrusion, autofrettage etc., or to join materials without melting them - e.g. in friction stir processing, riveting etc. Offering an extensive guide, the book includes chapters on roll bonding, equal channel angular pressing, autofrettage, friction stir processing/welding, magnetic pulse welding, and riveting - processes used to strengthen and join a variety of materials for lightweight applications and sustainable manufacturing. The contents of this book will be useful to researchers and practitioners alike.
Civil and military aircraft - and aerospace vehicles in general - face two related problems:- They depend heavily upon electronic systems and thus must be shielded against electromagnetic interference (EMI). This interference may come in the form of lighting strikes, interference from radio emitters, nuclear electromagnetic pulses (EMP), or even high power microwave (HPM) threats- Environmental conditions including moisture, rain, and pollution from the atmosphere may corrode airframes, skin, and other bonded joints. Most importantly, this corrosion may damage the conductivity and electromagnetic shielding of the vehicleThis book addresses both problems.
Covering energy saving technologies and how these are incorporated into component design, the book is relevant to industries including automotive engineering, and discusses the topical issue of sustainability in industry This book details recent fundamental developments in the field of tribology in industrial systems.
This book covers sustainable composites and bio-composites in terms of proper selection of reinforcements, methods to improve the thermal and mechanical properties, techniques for uniform dispersion of the reinforcements and its tribological performance. Also, it details the testing and damage characterization methods of these composites.
This book fills a need for a guide on the important commercial aspects of the lubricants business, offering valuable insights from an industry veteran.
