  • Mechanical properties and microstructure analysis of 0.5% Niobium alloyed ductile iron under austempered process in salt bath treatment

    The purpose of this work was to compare the mechanical and physical properties for 0.5% Niobium alloyed ductile iron (0.5% Nb-DI) with commercial ductile iron (DI) before and after austempering process. The materials for this investigation were produced by conventional CO2sand casting process and machined to TS EN 10001 standards for tensile test and ASTM E23 for Charpy impact test. Hardness test, density test and polarization test were also done to the samples. Microstructure observations were made after 2% Nital chemical etched and the fractured surfaces obtained through broken samples of tensile and impact test were evaluated through Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). The samples were austenitized at 900°C for 1 hour followed by austempered in a salt bath at 350°C for 3 different holding times which were 1 hour, 2 hours and 3 hours subsequently. The samples were then let cooled to room temperature. All testing were done before and after heat treatment process. The newly developed Nb alloyed DI possessed significant improvement in term of mechanical properties and corrosion behavior in comparison with pure ductile iron. Enhanced properties of the materials make them suitable for various technical and industrial applications.

  • A New Design of High Impact Load Rejection System Based Mechanical Linkages Using the Self-Restitution Mechanism

    This paper presents the development and characterization of a new design based on mechanical linkage for impact rejection mechanism. It works by transforming the input force into the desired output force through the movement of mechanical linkage in a series direction. The proposed mechanism consists of receiving plate, input link, coupler, counter link, and spring based link to counter the receiving force to the system. The work consists of mathematical modeling of the mechanism using Lagrange Equation in order to predict the behavior. The model is then simulated within MATLAB/SIMULINK environment to evaluate the functionality of the mechanism. In order to represent the input force, experimental data of the impact force for a pendulum impact is used in simulation. The simulation acts as a proof of concept for this mechanism in reducing impact force acting on it. Further simulation is done to characterize the mechanism by applying various impact loads. In conclusion, it is proven that the mechanism is able to transform the input force into the desired output force while simultaneously dampening the force.

  • Electrical-Magnetic-Mechanical Modeling of a Novel Vibration Shaker Based on a Rotary Permanent Magnet

    For conventional electromagnetic vibration shakers, a large and steady electromagnetic field is needed to generate the electromagnetic drive force, which leads to the overheating of coils and a large energy consuming. In this paper, a novel electromagnetic shaking mechanism that can be linearized is proposed based on a rotary permanent magnet driven by the electromagnetic field, in which a conjugate equal-diameter cam of a special profile is adopted simultaneously. By applying the novel mechanism, the steady electromagnetic field is no longer necessary and thus the energy consumption can be reduced. Considering of the coupling effects of electricity, magnetism and mechanical dynamics, a hybrid analytical-FEM method, therefore, is introduced to meet the demand for accurate modeling of this complex electrical-magnetic-mechanical system. The method also takes into account of the effect from electromagnetic field inhomogeneity. Finally, a comprehensive nonlinear model is built, and its performance is then verified by giving varied sinusoidal inputs in terms of different amplitudes and frequencies. It indicates that the electric- magnetic-mechanical coupling drive mechanism can be linearized in specific conditions, and the driving behaviors could be predicted and valued, which will be a theoretical guidance for the shaker's optimal design and the experimental investigation in the coming research.

  • Prediction of the mechanical properties of ceramic die material with artificial neural network and genetic algorithm

    This paper presents a connectionist approach using back-propagation artificial neural network (BP) and genetic algorithm (GA) to predict the mechanical properties of ceramic die material. This method is using GA to optimize BP, including how to train the initial connection weights of network and to determine the threshold values. In the analysis, mechanical properties of ceramic die material are optimized while its composition is assumed to be predefined. Various output parameters are considered in the optimization analysis, including hardness, flexural strength and fracture toughness in the optimization analysis. And the input parameters are composition of a kind of material. Results from experiment simulation tool are utilized to train and test the BP-GA optimization approach. The analysis indicates that the BP-GA approach offers a robust and efficient method of optimizing the mechanical properties of ceramic die material when improved neural networks are utilized instead of neural networks.

  • Measurement of mechanical properties of optical diffuser films by bugle test and finite element method

    The optical diffuser films have the excellently optical properties, but the mechanical properties are very important information. Especially, the more lamps used to enhance brightness in direct type backlight unit let more heating to be created. This side thermal effect makes optical diffuser films to occur warps and wrinkles via thermal stress and it leads to poor uniform performance in brightness. Therefore, the mechanical properties of optical diffuser films are the significant parameters for design. In this study, we employ the bulge test on the optical diffuser films to obtain the Young's modulus, Poisson's ratio, and residual stress. Meanwhile, the phase shifting electronic speckle pattern interferometry (PS-ESPI) was used to measure the out-of-plane displacement of optical diffuser films. Furthermore we use the experimental datum into finite element analysis software (ANSYS) to prove that the experiment is reliable. Then, we study the temperature effect on the changes of the mechanical properties of diffusers, which used in cell-phone, notebook, and LCD TV products, in order to avoid warps and wrinkles phenomenon happened in optical films. An experimental method which combining the finite element method and the bulge test is developed in this paper to measure the mechanical properties of the optical diffuser film. The influence of temperature on the mechanical properties was also investigated. The reasonableness of the developed method was verified through the well agreement between the FEA simulation result and ESPI fringe pattern. Furthermore, the temperature does have the significant effect on the Young's modulus of the optical diffuser film and less influence on the Poisson's ratio and residual stress. In practical application, the optical diffuser film is baked by a cold cathode light tube and the temperature of optical diffuser film is not uniform. Consequently, the Young's modulus will vary with the location and this may cause easily the optical diffuser films wrinkle such that the display quality would be degraded from this phenomenon. The performance of accuracy and advantages on the mechanical properties are determined by evaluation the optical diffuser films.

  • Thermal and mechanical performance assessment of two commercially-available PA66 polymer composite materials for microelectronics heat exchanger applications

    Two commercially-available thermally-enhanced polyamide 66 (PA66) polymer composite materials having thermal conductivities of 20 to 30 W/m.K, sourced from two different vendors, are experimentally characterized in terms of thermal performance and mechanical properties. The heat transfer rates of prototype air-water heat exchangers made from both PA66 materials are found to be comparable to that of an aluminum exchanger having the same geometry, demonstrating the potential feasibility of replacing conventional metallic heat exchangers with thermally enhanced polymeric composite heat exchangers in microelectronic airliquid cooling applications. However, significant differences are found in the measured mechanical properties of the two PA66 composite materials, namely tensile, flexural and impact strengths, which are attributable to fiber geometry and composition.
