How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Integral mini-channels fabricated in the metal substrate by friction stir channeling process are different from conventional mini-channels due to irregular shape, and large surface roughness. The effect of axial wall conduction on heat transfer in such mini-channels is significant, which could limit their utilisation as cooling channels in heat tra...
In this study, an experiment is performed to investigate material flow and its implication on the channel formation in friction stir channeling process. X-ray Computed Tomography in combination with optical microscopy is used to analyse bulk material flow, geometry and various features of the fabricated channel. In addition, X-ray Micro Computed To...
