In the present work, structural fatigue experiments were performed on a Ti-26Nb alloy subjected to different thermomechanical treatments: a severe cold rolling, a solution treatment and two aging treatments at low-temperature conducted after cold rolling in order to optimize the kinetics of precipitation. The aim is to investigate the effect of microstructural refinement obtained by these processes on fatigue performances. Preliminary tensile tests were performed on each state and analyzed in terms of the microstructure documented by using X-Ray diffraction and TEM analysis. These tests clearly promote the short-time-aged cold-rolled state with a fine α and ω phases precipitation. An interesting balance between mechanical properties such as high strength and low Young's modulus has been obtained. Cyclic bending tests were carried out in air at 0.5%, 1%, 2% and 3% imposed strain amplitudes. At low straining amplitude, where the fatigue performances are at their best, the cold-rolled state does not break at 3×106 cycles and the long-time aged precipitation hardened state seems to be a good competitor compared to the cold-rolled state. All failure characteristics are documented by Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) micrographs and analyzed in term of microstructure. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd

Experimental investigations on flax and glass fabrics reinforced epoxy specimens, i.e. FFRE and GFRE, submitted to fatigue tests are presented in this paper. Samples having [0/90] 3S and [±45] 3S stacking sequences, with similar fibre volume fractions have been tested under tension-tension fatigue loading. The specific stress-number of cycles to failure (S-N) curves, show that for the [0/90] 3S specimens, FFRE have lower fatigue endurance than GFRE, but the [±45] 3S FFRE specimens offer better specific fatigue endurance than similar GFRE, in the studied life range (<2×10 6). Overall, the three-stage stiffness degradation is observed in all cases except for [0/90] 3S FFRE specimens, which present a stiffening phenomenon of around 2-3% which could be related to the straightening of the microfibrils. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.

To reduce production costs and to improve performances of hot rolled products, an optimization of the production line is required. The rolling mill is one of the most influent steps on the internal quality of produced parts. In fact the process tends to reduce the size of defects during the strain. The production line composed by 24 stands has been implemented in a commercial simulation tool named FORGE®. First, a model has been developed and adjusted according to the industrial data. Then a parametric study was carried out in order to evaluate the influence of the process parameters on the internal quality of the rolled material. © (2015) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

In the upstream we place a piece of ring and rotate it with 83Hz, 166Hz, 333Hz,and 666H to find the effect of the periodic distortion.In the experiment this type of the perturbation will not allow since the mechanical failure of any parts of the equipment in the upstream will destroy the blade system. This type of study will be only possible by CFD. We use two pumps NS32 (ENSAM) and three blades pump (Tamagawa Univ). The benchmark computations were performed without perturbation parts, and confirm the computational results well agreement in head-flow rate. We obtained the pressure fluctuation growth rate that is representing the global instability of the turbo-system. The fluctuating torque components were 0.01Nm(5000rpm), 0.1Nm(10000rmp), 0.04Nm(20000rmp), 0.15Nm(40000rmp) respectively. Only for 10000rpm(166Hz) the output toque was random, and it implies that it creates unsteady flow by separations on the blades, and will reduce the pressure loss significantly.

This paper presents four new iterative decoders for two dimensional product block codes (2D-PBC) based on Genetic Algorithms. Each of these iterative decoders runs in parallel on a number of processors connected by a network. They have almost the same complexity as the conventional iterative decoder, but their performances are improved since at each iteration, they trap the better of extrinsic information computed by the elementary decoders running simultaneously on all processors. © 2014 IEEE.

The extra cost of the measures taken to protect a building against seismic risk is higher concerning old buildings than new designed ones. But since more than 80% of buildings were designed before the new seismic codes, it is a huge heritage waiting to manage, with great priority. Sophisticated methodologies are emerging in Seismic Engineering, as the Performance Based Earthquake Engineering, PEER. We improved the decision analysis model, and we proposed a multidisciplinary approach dealing with different classes of buildings and different seismic regions to solve, without restriction, the particular case of France. It allows sharing the responsibility by all, in order to convince people to rehabilitate their structures by including them in the decision process.

This paper reports on the current development of a new Thompson-Lampard calculable capacitor at LNE. The goal is to determine the von Klitzing constant R K at a significant level of uncertainty of about one part in 10 8. The comparison with other accurate measurements of h/e2 serves as a relevant test of validity of the theory predicting R K = h/e 2, a decisive issue within the context of the new SI. Conversely, assuming that this relation is exact, the measurement of R K and thus that of the fine structure constant can be used for testing quantum electrodynamics theory. The mechanical structure of the new LNE calculable cross capacitor has been designed and a new set of electrodes has been fabricated. The assembling of the calculable capacitor is in progress.
