International Journal of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering

Cup drawing is one of the important operations in sheet metal forming. Manufacturing of the aluminium base cup involves several stages such as blanking, first drawing, second drawing, taper formation and trimming. This increases the process time. An attempt has therefore, been made to develop a comprehensive, rigorous, yet easily-workable method of analysis for designing a die set to combine the intermediate stages of drawing process. Conventional drawing, inverted drawing and warm forming processes are experimented for yielding successful drawing in single setup. Die sets are separately designed for above said processes. The die sets, thus designed is simulated using ...

International Journal of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering

Phase Change materials (PCMs) absorb and release latent heat during their phase transition nearly at constant temperature. The latent heat storage phenomena using PCMs provides much higher storage density, with a smaller or zero temperature difference while storing and releasing of heat. PCMs have 5-14 times more heat capacity per unit volume than sensible storage materials that merits their usage as passive thermal control systems. They are effectively complemented with active thermal control systems in order to minimize their duty cycles and optimize the capacity.

International Journal of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering

The thermal conductivity of heating or cooling fluids is a very important property in the development of energy efficient heat transfer systems, which is one of the important needs of many industries. However, low thermal conductivity is a primary limitation in developing energy-efficient heat transfer fluids that are required for cooling purposes. Nanofluids are nanotechnology-based heat transfer fluids that are engineered by stably dispersing nanometer-sized (below 100nm) solid particles (such as ceramics, metals, alloys, semiconductors, nanotubes, and composite particles) in conventional heat transfer fluids (such as water, oil, diesel, ethylene glycol and mixtures) at relatively low particle volume concentrations.

International Journal of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering

Boiling of multicomponent mixtures is characterized by a close linking between heat and mass transfer processes, with the evaporation rate usually being limited by the mass transfer process. This is significantly different from single and binary component systems where interfacial mass transfer rates are normally very high. Information on pool boiling of binary mixtures is widely available in the literature, whereas research on forced convective boiling of mixtures has become significant only over the last few years. This paper presents a brief review of experimental results obtained in pool boiling of ternary mixtures and also the empirical or theoretical correlations ...
