S. Karuthapandi, Dr. M. Ramu, and Thyla, P. R., “Effects of the use of a flat wire electrode in gas metal arc welding and fuzzy logic model for the prediction of weldment shape profile”, Journal of Mechanical Science and Technology, vol. 31, pp. 2477-2486, 2017.[Abstract]


This paper describes the relationships between the macrostructural characteristics of weld beads and the welding parameters in Gas metal arc welding (GMAW) using a flat wire electrode. Bead-on-plate welds were produced with a flat wire electrode and different combinations of input parameters (i.e., welding current, welding speed, and flat wire electrode orientation). The macrostructural characteristics of the weld beads, namely, deposition, bead width, total bead width, reinforcement height, penetration depth, and depth of HAZ were investigated. A mapping technique was employed to measure these characteristics in various segments of the weldment zones. Results show that the use of a flat wire electrode improves the depth-to-width (D/W) ratio by 16.5 % on average compared with the D/W ratio when a regular electrode is used in GMAW. Furthermore, a fuzzy logic model was established to predict the effects of the use of a flat electrode on the weldment shape profile with varying input parameters. The predictions of the model were compared with the experimental results. © 2017, The Korean Society of Mechanical Engineers and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg. More »»

In this work, metallic titanium film was deposited on graded alloy of AA7075 for different deposition time of 180, 300, 420 and 900 seconds at substrate temperature from 100°C - 400°C using DC magnetron sputtering method. The microstructure and mechanical properties of the coated Ti thin films are analyzed. Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) image and Energy Dispersive X-ray spectroscope (EDX) result reveals homogeneous dispersion of Ti thin film on the substrate. The X-ray diffraction (XRD) pattern of the Ti thin film shows (101) as the preferred orientation with HCP structure and the surface morphology was characterized using Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) for Ti film deposited with film thickness (154 µm) at higher substrate temperature (400°C). It is found that hardness, scratch resistance, adhesion, surface roughness and corrosion resistance of the Ti Deposited film exhibit significant improvement for MEMS Application.

The roof slab of the nuclear reactor supports all the components of the reactor. Roof slab is essentially a box structure with top and bottom plates interconnected by vertical shells and radial stiffeners welded to them. The gap between the top and bottom plates is filled with concrete that provides biological and thermal shielding in the top axial direction of the reactor. The 500 MWe Prototype Fast Breeder Reactor (PFBR) is designed based on the Operating Basis Earthquake (OBE) and Safe Shutdown Earthquake (SSE) which are categorized under level A and level D loadings respectively. The primary objective of this work is to optimize the design of the roof slab and to predict and ascertain the structural integrity of the optimized roof slab under static, harmonic and seismic loading conditions. Regression models for critical design parameters are developed and are used in the optimization algorithm. © 2016 Elsevier Ltd

Both medical and engineering sciences play a vital role in human health diagnose and treatment. In this scientific world, the technology of alternative bone scaffold is one of the remedial sources for bone loss treatment. This research paper focuses on the design and analysis of porous scaffold made of additive manufacturing process. Various types of biocompatible materials with different characteristics are used for this bone scaffold. In order to have high load bearing capacity, a material composition of biocompatible Polyamide (PA) combined with Hydroxyapatite (HA) is used in this research work. HA has the character of greater cell seeding growth of tissue cells and hence added in the composition. The porous scaffold models with different configuration of cubical pore, spherical pore, shifted cubical pore, shifted spherical pore are designed using Solidworks software with a pore size of 800 microns and the porosity ranging from 40 {%} to 70 {%}. All the CAD models are analyzed using ANSYS software. Based on the static structural analysis, the shifted cubical scaffold posses lesser stress concentration, and thus selected for fabrication using Selective Laser Sintering machine. The specimens are fabricated in three different build orientations and the load bearing strength is found out using experimentation. The different material composition of 100 {%}PA, 95 {%}PA: 5 {%}HA, 90 {%}PA: 10 {%}HA and 85 {%}PA: 15 {%}HA are considered for this study.</p>

Abstract The objective of the work is to predict the structural integrity of the roof slab of 500MWe sodium cooled fast reactor (SFR) under static loading conditions. The roof slab is an annular box type structure consisting of top and bottom plates with connecting stiffeners and has been designed to support various components such as control plug, pumps and heat exchangers entering into the main vessel of the reactor. The net static load acting on it is about 3800t under normal condition and about 5000t under design basis earthquake. Experiments on 1/12th scaled down model of the roof slab are carried out and test data is compared with the results of numerical simulation by finite element analysis. The numerical as well as experimental investigations carried out on the model demonstrate the robustness of assumptions made for the analysis carried out towards respecting design code limits as well as raise the confidence on the structural integrity of the roof slab.

Scaled down models are widely used for experimental investigations on huge structures due to the limitation in the capacities of testing facilities, and, moreover, the experimentation on scaled models is less expensive. Also small scale models are often built with materials dissimilar to those of the prototype. However, only few studies have been carried out on the similitude laws for the prototype structures with small scale models built with a different material. In the present study, an attempt has been made to develop a scaling law for models to carry out the free vibration analysis of structures, based on the similitude requirement. The established scaling laws are validated analytically using simple test problems. The similitude relationship between the prototype and the model is validated with the aid of a case study using finite element analysis software.
