Fatigue And Fracture In Pavement, Amin Moradi, P. Sravana

International Journal of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering

This paper we present what is fatigue ?and what is fracture? we will discuse on design aspects related to fatigue failure, an important mode of failure in engineering components. Fatigue failure results mainly due to variable loading or more precisely due to cyclic variations in the applied loading . A fatigue failure begins with a small crack; the initial crack may be so minute and can not be detected. The crack usually develops at a point of localized stress concentration like discontinuity in the material, such as a change in cross section, a keyway or a hole.for design pavement flexible ...

Experimental Validation And Data Acquisition For Hyper Elastic Material Models In Finite Element Analysis, Venkatesh K, P. L. Srinivasa Murthy

International Journal of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering

This paper presents the theory, experiment setups and solution implementation of Hyperelastic Material Models in Finite Element Analysis to provide the description of material behavior that matches the conditions the product sees in real life. This can be a complex matter because the real life scenario may have the product responding simultaneously to a multiplicity of conditions such as rate, temperature and the environment. Physical testing of elastomers for the purpose of fitting material models in finite element analysis requires experiments like uniaxial tension, biaxial tension, volumetric compression in multiple states of strain under carefully considered loading conditions.

An Intelligent Permeability Optimization System At Sinter Plant Of Rourkela Steel Plant, Ayan Goswami

International Journal of Applied Research in Mechanical Engineering

The permeability of sinter mix is one of the vital parameters that affect the performance of sintering process. The amount of water added in the granulation drum has a significant effect on the permeability of the sinter bed and sinter machine productivity. Considering the variation in input feed materials and the parabolic nature of permeability-moisture curve, the optimum level of water addition is a difficult task for the operator to determine. Therefore a mathematical model based intelligent permeability measurement system is developed which determine the required amount of water to be added in granulation drum to achieve the optimum permeability ...


Target Hit Interceptor Mid-Course Guidance Scheme For Ballistic Missile Interception, N. PRABHAKAR, K. CHANDRA SEKHAR, V. VAIDIYANATHAN 2020 Defence Research & Development Laboratory, Hyderabad- 500 058

Target Hit Interceptor Mid-Course Guidance Scheme For Ballistic Missile Interception, N. Prabhakar, K. Chandra Sekhar, V. Vaidiyanathan

International Journal of Applied Research in Mechanical Engineering

A Mid-course guidance algorithm has been developed for an exo-atmospheric interceptor to neutralize an incoming high speed ballistic Target. The guidance scheme positions the interceptor ahead of the target so that the velocity vectors of the target and interceptors are in the same direction. As the interceptors used in ballistic missile defence have a lower velocity than the incoming target, the target approaches the interceptor. The guidance scheme reduces the closing velocity compared to a head on approach thereby increasing the homing time for a given terminal sensor detection range. The guidance law is validated through numerical simulation.

A significant share i.e. 60% of the total power loss in a modern automotive engine in form of heat, either from the engine surface or the exhaust pipe, of which the friction losses may vary from 18% to 20% and frictional losses are also responsible for about 25% of the fuel consumption. It is noted that almost 80% of the frictional losses are due to the frictional losses in the piston ring assembly (PRA). That leaves less than one quarter of the indicated power in terms of brake power. This paper analyses different methods developed by the automobile industries ...
