Peristaltic Transport Of A Second-Grade Dusty Fluid In A Tube

Article in Press

This article intents to analyze the behavior of second-grade dusty fluid flowing through a flexible tube whose walls are induced by the peristaltic movement. Coupled equations for the fluid and solid particles have been modelled by considering streamline conversions. Regular perturbation technique has been implemented to get the solutions and the outcomes are demonstrated through graphs. The impact of diverse parameters on...

Development of an Efficient Rice De-stoner

Article in Press

This research was carried out to develop an efficient rice de-stoning machine Extensive literature review shows that some researchers have explored the work. Therefore, among the work found in the literature, the two most efficient de-stoners when compared to others were named Model A and B while the developed model was named KASO model. The components of the developed machine include feed hopper that houses the rice at...

Effect Of Moisture On The Mechanical Properties Of Rhecktophyllum Camerunense Natural Fiber Plaster Composites

Article in Press

The aim of this work focuses on the study of the effect of moisture on the mechanical properties of natural fiber composite (NFC) plaster/Rhecktophyllum camerunense (RC). Indeed, the treated with NaOH and untreated RC fiber reinforced plaster composites are fabricated and hygro-thermally aged at 23%, 54% and 75% relative humidity at 23°C. Flexural test was carried out using a three-point bending approach according to...

Design of Non-Laser-Based Rapid Prototyping Process for Copper Product

Article in Press

Abstract-Rapid prototyping (RP) has become a widely used tool for the fabrication and evaluation of physical prototypes during the product development cycle. RP is used since it can produce prototypes with arbitrary shapes quickly and at a lower cost than traditional prototyping techniques. This work presents the standard way for designing Non-Laser-Based Rapid Prototyping Process for Copper Product. Specially focus on...

Investigation of crack growth in steel elbow as a result of in-plane bending

Article in Press

In this study, crack growth rate in a standard steel elbow as a result of open and close bending moments has been investigated based on failure mechanic concepts and determination of crack growth in ductile materials. In this work, crack growth in elbows with various geometries has been investigated using finite element method. In following, assuming a primary crack in through wall circumferential or axial, subjected to...

Implementation of Total Productive Maintenance in foundry

Article in Press

The purpose of this paper is to present the contributions of Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) initiatives towards improving manufacturing performance in a foundry. Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) is a very powerful Lean manufacturing tool that aims to increase the availability of existing equipment hence reducing the need for further capital investment. The correlations between various TPM implementation dimensions...

Article in Press

Power inverters operate under dynamic loads, the varying loads cause thermal expansion and contraction, which stress the internal boundaries between the material layers in the semiconductor. Eventually, the stress wears out the semiconductor module which ultimately leads to thermally induced failure. The primary goal of this research is to present thermal model for the IRF 3205 MOSFET chip switching operation for a power...
