Article
Automobile bodywork, wall insulation, bridges, and ship hulls, to name a few, are among the many applications for glass fiber-epoxy composites. To manufacture lightweight products for aforesaid applications, the properties of glass fiber-epoxy composites must be improved. The present work aims to fabricate and characterize nanoclay epoxy composites...
Article
The present work aims to study the effect of water sorption–desorption–resorption conditions on the mechanical properties of epoxy-nanoclay nanocomposites (ENNCs). To prepare ENNCs specimens, nanoclay and epoxy are mixed together by a stirrer and a sonicator. The nanoclay-epoxy and hardener mixture are moulded into specimens that meet the dimension...

Abstract This research aims to investigate the influence of water soaking and re-drying on the mechanical and wear properties of nanoclay-polyester nanocomposites (NPNCs). The nanoclay addition significantly enhances the mechanical properties of NPNCs in as-made, water-soaked and re-dried conditions. Also, the addition of nanoclay decreased the per...

Steel is a versatile metal, got a wide range of applications in all the fields of engineering and technology. Generally, low carbon steels are tough and high alloy carbon steels are hard in nature. Certain applications demand both properties in the same steel. Carburization is one such technique that develops hard and wear resistant surfaces with a...
Article
In this article, the influence of varying the weight percentage of glass fiber on the water uptake, tensile and flexural strengths of glass fiber-polyester composites are evaluated. The composites are fabricated by hand lay-up process and further subjected to water immersion for a varied time period (between 0 and 180 days) at ambient temperature....
Article
This study aims at investigating the effect of water ageing on the durability of cellulose fibre reinforced polymer layered silicate nanocomposite. The material used comprises cellulose fibres from pinewood as reinforcement and high-density polyethene (HDPE) coupled with nanoclay as matrix phase. The prepared material is subjected to tap water agei...

The work targets to fabricate and characterize “nanoclay–epoxy composites” (NECs) by varying weight percentages (wt.%) of nanoclay. Mechanical stirrer and sonicator are used to mix nanoclay into epoxy resin. The mixture is molded to prepare specimens in accordance with ASTM standards. The addition of nanoclay increased the mechanical properties of...
Article
In this research, the results of different weight percentage of glass fiber (30, 40 & 50), cement (0, 3 & 6) and polyester resin (70, 60 & 50), on the properties of glass fiber-cement-polyester composites are investigated. The specimens are prepared by hand lay-up technique. All the specimens are tested for tensile and flexural strength as per ASTM...

Tire treadwear is a familiar problem found in tires. There are several factors that affect the treadwears in tires like tire geometry, operating conditions, tire materials, etc. The current work aims at investigating the effect of three operating condition variables viz., inflation pressure (30-36 psi), speed (20-60 kmph) and distance (100-300 km)...
Article
Operating speed of an engine remain a significant factor for customers and is controlled by the variable speed governors. Failure of engine components represents a familiar phenomenon. Failure analysis of the governor of the diesel engine remains the focus of this article. Various methods, either experimental or statistical methods are employed in...

Finite element methods solve complicated computational problems, which requires optimized input data to obtain a converged solution to the problem and arrive at accurate results from simulations. However, the calculations obtained by interpolations of derivatives at the nodes result in mesh discretization error. It is observed that the increase in...

The rapid growth in the automobile industry and the need to develop and roll out the new products, demands for new technologies to reduce the product development cycle. The numerical computation of component stresses is considered to be state of-the-art industrial engineering practice and durability is a major bottleneck in today’s automobile body...
Article
In this study, hybrid composites were prepared using chicken feather as filler material. Hybrid composites were tested for tensile and flexural strength. Composites were prepared by hand-layup technique by varying the weight percentage of chicken feather (0, 4, 8 wt.%). Samples were tested according to ASTM standard. SEM images were studied to find...

Railways are the major means of transportation. One of the commitments of the railways is to provide safe train services to passengers and ensure adequate passenger amenities in trains and at railway stations, which includes provision of clean and hygienic surroundings both at trains and in stations. Stagnation of waste on tracks is common, near st...

The current investigation focuses on error inherent in the FE model and mesh discretization error which creeps into the FE solution as a result of the interpolation of the field derivative values at the nodes. The error in stress at each node is integrated over the entire volume of the element and the error so calculated is energy error for the ele...
