An upper-bound solution for forging load of an elliptical disc

  The present work critically emphasis on the deformation limit of an elliptical disc. The upper- bound theorem has been used to determine the forging load. A suitable kinematically admissible velocity fields for three dimensional deformations have been chosen for analyzing deformation limit as well as the bulging of disc. During the analysis satisfactory friction factor, yield strength and other process...

Design analysis of solar bi-focal collectors

  This study carried out the design analysis of solar bi-focal collectors with the basic units comprising the paraboloid concentrators, receivers and support/connectors. The design of the receivers is such that it works on thermo-siphon principle while the heat energy requirement for each receiver is 650 kJ. Solar energy required to provide the needed power input in the collector’s receiver is amounted to...

Static analysis of an isotropic rectangular plate using finite element analysis (FEA)

  This research work aims to analyze the static analysis of an isotropic rectangular plate with various boundary conditions and various types of load applications. In this paper, finite element analysis has been carried out for an isotropic rectangular plate by considering the master element as a four noded quadrilateral element. Numerical analysis (finite element analysis, FEA) has been carried out by...
