Abstract Polyvinyl Chloride based surfaces present a relatively low coefficient of friction (COF), but this can be improved if silicon carbide is dispersed on the surface. In the present paper an experimental investigation is presented for assessing the efficiency of the use of SiC aggregates for this purpose. FTIR and DSC methods were used for assessing the curing of the composite surfaces. Optical microscopy was used for assessing the geometrical characteristics of the SiC aggregates. The surf...

Electro Discharge Machining (EDM) can be an element of a sustainable manufacturing system. In the present study, the sustainability implications of EDM of special-purpose steels are investigated. The machining quality (minimum surface roughness), productivity (material removal rate) improvement and cost (electrode wear rate) minimization are considered. The influence and correlation of the three most important machining parameters including pulse on time, current and pulse off time have been inv...

Laser drilling is a high-speed process that is used to produce high aspect ratio holes of various sizes for critical applications, such as cooling holes in aero-engine and gas turbine components. Hole quality is always a major concern during the laser drilling process. Apart from hole quality, cost and productivity are also the key considerations for high-value manufacturing industries. Taking into account the significance of improving material removal quantity, energy efficiency, and product qu...

Sandcast lead sheets are characterised by their superior aesthetic performance and mottled surface. Lead sheet casting is widely used in the construction industry for roofing and flashing applications, while the roots of this process can be tracked back to the Roman times. In this study, two-dimensional computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations have been performed to simulate the melt flow and solidification stages of the lead sandcasting process. The effects of process parameters such as p...

Abstract One of the most important grinding parameters is the real depth of cut which is always lower than its programmed value. This is because in reality abrasive grains of the grinding wheel are not fixed but attached to a bonding material which is deformed during the process. In this study we investigate the effect of the contact stiffness between a single abrasive grain and the workpiece on the depth of cut and the grinding process characteristics via three-dimensional Molecular Dynamics (M...
