Nanotechnology 25 30 We are exploring thermoelectric energy conversion in semiconducting nanostructures, pyroelectricity and electro-thermal effects in self-heated nanodevices. Evidence of mixed axial-gravitational anomaly in thermo-electric transport in the Weyl semimetal NbP Weyl semimetals are materials where electrons behave effectively as a kind of massless relativistic particles known as Weyl fermions. These particles occur in two flavors, or chiralities, and are subject to quantum anomalies, the breaking of a conservation law by quantum fluctuations.
Residual Stress What is it Unlike the applied stress, residual stress is induced during processing. When in molten state, polymer molecules are unstressed, and they tend to an equilibrium, random coil state.
This kind of stress is often referred to as flow induced residual stress. An important fact is polymer shrinks as it cools.
During the cooling stage, the polymer cools at different rates from the mold wall to the center. When the polymer starts to cool, the external surface layers start to shrink, while the bulk of polymer at the core is still hot and free to contract.
Later when the internal core cools, it's contraction is constrained by the external layers since they are already rigid. This leads to another kind of residual stress. Usually the stress distribution is tensile in the core and compressive at the surface. The following figuresbased on an assumed parabolic temperature distribution, can be used to illustrate how the residual stress develops in the injection molded part during cooling process.
At time t0, cooling starts, the melt temperature is above the glass transition temperature Tg. A research on thermal equilibrium time t1, the outer layer begins to solidify without any resistance from the liquid core when its temperature decreases to the glass transition temperature Tg.
At time t3, the third layer begins to solidify when its temperature decreases to Tg. Again,the shrinkage of the inner layer is resisted by the solidified outer layers. Because its temperature decreases more than the outer layer, so its shrinkage is more than any of the outer layers, thus leading to a tensile stress at the surface and compressive stress in the core.
Osswald,] As is stated abovethe thermal induced stress distribution is compressive at the surface and tensile in the core. This conforms to the parabolic temperature distribution in the molded part. Assuming no residual stress build-up during phase change, a simple function based on the parabolic temperature distribution, can be used to approximate the residual stress distribution in thin sections: Here, Tfis the final temperature of the part, E is the modulus, a the thermal expansion coefficientL the half thickness and Ts denotes the solidification temperature: Enter the thermal expansion coefficient a: Enter the yougth modulus E: Enter the position z: The experiment result shows that stress distribution conforms to the function.
These strains are generally measured by mechanical or X-ray methods and corresponding stresses calculated from elastic theory formulae. General techniques to measure residual stresses are: After a part of the material is removed, the static equilibrium is upset and stress distribution is altered.
For example, for a strip with a longitudinal stress distribution, removal of the surface layer generates a moment in the cross section. To balance this moment, the strip bends to some curvature.
By measuring the curvature after removing successive layers through the thickness, the initial residual stress distribution can be reconstructed. Our knowledge of the effects of residual stresses on structure can be obtained by X-ray method.
For example, to measure the residual stress in metal, X-ray tells of atomic arrangements; deviations from an ideal arrangement can be interpreted as strain; the state of stress can be reconstructed from this strain. Experimental data compared with the predicted data Some experiments have been done to measure the through thickness residual stresses for SBPs.
An Approximate Model of Thermal Residual Stress in an Injection Molded Part Related paper Compared with the parabolic model presented above[Tim A. Osswald,], this is a more detailed heat transfer thermal-elastic model with phase change. Invention Journal of Research Technology in Engineering & Management (IJRTEM) ISSN: C is proposed on the basis of evidence from microprobe, thermal analysis, metallographic and X-Ray examinations. There is a marked temperature dependence in the solid solubility of the Chi phase in the Equilibrium Studies on a Chi Phase. Abstract Radiative convective equilibrium of the atmosphere with a given distribution of relative humidity is computed as the asymptotic state of an initial value problem. The results show that it takes almost twice as long to reach the state of radiative convective equilibrium for the atmosphere with a given distribution of relative humidity than for the atmosphere with a given distribution.
To measure the through thickness residual stresses, the layer removal techniques are implemented. After one layer is removed from the bar specimen, the remaining part bends to some curvature. The curvature varies according to the removed thickness.
Then using the equation we can reconstruct the state of stress.
Residual stresses predicted by equation and measured stresses are shown below. As these figures indicate, the experimental data conform to the predicted data very well.Research output: Contribution to journal › Article.
