Dielectric strength of oil

[{u'author_order': 1, u'full_name': u'H. W. Tobey'}] Proceedings of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers, 1910

A large part of the apparatus comprising the equipment of electric power transmitting systems depends, for its safe and successful operation, on oil. This fact continues to grow in importance from year to year as the size of the units in which it is used increases, the operating voltages become higher, and the conditions more severe.

IN TWO previous papers1,2we have described some of the results of life-test studies of miniature cable specimens started in 1934. One of the general observations resulting from a large number of tests is that all specimens made with high-density paper and standard-viscosity oil or specimens made with standard-density paper and high-viscosity oil have had short life at 30 kv whereas ...

Shock waves are discontinuous solutions to quasi-linear partial differential equations and can be studied through a singular perturbation known as the vanishing viscosity technique. The vanishing viscosity method is a means of smoothing the shock, which we use to study the case of electromagnetic waves in bianisotropic materials. We derive the conditions arising from this smoothing procedure for a traveling ...

The increase in viscosity of a polar liquid which occurs when a constant electric field is applied across the capillary in which the liquid is flowing saturates at a high field intensity, and no further viscosity increase occurs (fig. 1(a)). This saturation effect has a long time-constant, and disappears if a very low frequency field of 1 c.p.s. is substituted ...

  • The Development of a Low Viscosity, Highly Efficient Lubricant for Sport Motorcycle Applications (2011-32-0513)

    The highly competitive sport motorcycle market demands continuous increase in engine performance. At the same time, legislation in the main industrialized countries establishes stringent limits for gaseous emissions from two wheelers. As already witnessed in the passenger car industry, motorcycle manufacturers are giving increased focus to the lubricant as a potential tool to improve engine performance and reduce gaseous emissions. When compared to a conventional, high viscosity formulation, an optimized low viscosity, low friction engine oil can bring significant increase in power release and fuel economy, as well as a reduction in tailpipe emissions. However, the use of highly efficient lubricants in sport motorcycle applications needs careful evaluation since motorcycle engines with an integrated clutch and gearbox require the lubricant to achieve very precise viscometric and frictional limits. This paper describes the development of a new concept for high performance motorcycle engine oils, capable of delivering a tangible increase in engine efficiency whilst maintaining a high level of wet clutch operability along with good engine and gearbox durability. The development process included the formulation of a specific additive package with an optimized friction coefficient and the definition of a base oil mix with a suitable viscometric profile. A number of candidate formulations were then screened using Castrol’s proprietary motorcycle engine test methods for power release and clutch compatibility. A final candidate was field tested for 30,000 km using a high speed track riding cycle. The candidate formulation showed a statistically significant increase in engine power release over a number of high performance engine oils. Wet clutch compatibility and powertrain durability was also equal or better to that obtained with high performance benchmark products.

  • Fundamentals of Biomedical Transport Processes

    Transport processes represent important life-sustaining elements in all humans. These include mass transfer processes, including gas exchange in the lungs, transport across capillaries and alveoli, transport across the kidneys, and transport across cell membranes. These mass transfer processes affect how oxygen and carbon dioxide are exchanged in your bloodstream, how metabolic waste products are removed from your blood, how nutrients are transported to tissues, and how all cells function throughout the body. A discussion of kidney dialysis and gas exchange mechanisms is included. Another element in biomedical transport processes is that of momentum transport and fluid flow. This describes how blood is propelled from the heart and throughout the cardiovascular system, how blood elements affect the body, including gas exchange, infection control, clotting of blood, and blood flow resistance, which affects cardiac work. A discussion of the measurement of the blood resistance to flow (viscosity), blood flow, and pressure is also included. A third element in transport processes in the human body is that of heat transfer, including heat transfer inside the body towards the periphery as well as heat transfer from the body to the environment. A discussion of temperature measurements and body protection in extreme heat conditions is also included.

  • Effects of Melting on Faulting and Continental Deformation

    The presence of melt is closely related to the localization of deformation in faults and shear zones in a variety of tectonic settings. This relationship is observed on length scales from the outcrop to plate boundary faults to orogens. However, the question of whether melting induces localization, or localization creates a pathway for melts, can rarely be answered from field observations alone. Experimental studies show that rock strength decreases exponentially with increasing volume percentage of melt. This suggests that melting facilitates strain localization where deformation would be homogeneous in the absence of melt. Yet, the extrapolation of experimental relationships between rock strength and melt content to natural conditions at depth in the lithosphere remains speculative, largely because the grain-scale processes underlying dramatic weakening at small amounts of melt have yet to be investigated in crustal rocks. New geochronological methods for dating minerals that crystallized during deformation in the presence of melt have the potential to constrain the time lag between the onset of melting and deformation in naturally deformed anatectic rocks. An indirect, but clear answer to the question of whether melting induces strain localization on a regional scale comes from numerical models of orogenesis which can be run in the presence or absence of low-viscosity domains that approximate the mechanical behavior of partially melted rock. These models show that melting induces lateral flow of anatectic crust within horizontal channels usually situated at the base of the continental crust. These channels have strong vertical strain gradients, especially at their boundaries where shear zones accommodate lateral extrusion of the anatectic rock in between. Together with their bounding shear zones, these flow channels form a new class of faults, which we term “extrusional faults.” Extrusional faults containing long-lived melt (tens of millions of years) can support large, broadly distributed topographic loads such as orogenic plateaus and can exhume deeply buried rocks from beneath orogens. In contrast, strike-slip and oblique-slip faults serve as steep conduits for the rapid ascent, differentiation, and crystallization of melt. The relatively short residence time of melts in such moderately to steeply dipping fault systems can lead to episodic motion, with long periods of creep punctuated by shorter periods of melt veining, magmatic activity, and/or faster slip.
