Different from the conventional ring rolling mill, the combined ring rolling mill has not only one main roll and one mandrel to enlarge the ring blank, but also two assistant rolls to deform the ring blank with the main roll continuous feeding. The novel ring rolling process can have three working modes: 1) conventional ring rolling; 2) cross rolling with three rolls surrounding the ring blank; 3) conventional ring rolling with cross rolling. Moreover, the new ring rolling process allows the transferring from one working mode to another. The process and the mill provide more flexibility for manufacturing different ring products. The stiffness condition at different working modes and the smoothly transferring conditions are first studied carefully. Then the combined ring rolling model for deep groove ring is established and evaluated. © 2015 Owned by the authors, published by EDP Sciences.

Hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) are one of the most viable technologies to achieve the goals of energy saving and environmental protection before a breakthrough in battery technology and fuel cell technology. Energy management strategy as a key technology of HEVs is studied extensively and deeply to improve the performance of HEVs and speed up the industrialization of HEVs.

Then qualitative analysis is performed for all kinds of energy management strategies that are used in HEVs in detail, essential characteristics involving pros and cons, interconnections and improvement potential among various energy management strategies are revealed from the view of control theory. Finally, latest developing trends in energy management strategies of HEVs are presented to improve the performance of HEVs based on above quantitative analysis and qualitative analysis, covering driving cycle recognition/prediction algorithms, integrated multi-objective, coordinated optimization energy management strategies, good balance between computation complexity and optimization performance of energy management strategies, fair and credible evaluation system of energy management strategies.

In this paper, the structural acoustics analysis and optimization of an enclosed box-damped structure are investigated by using the response surface methodology (RSM). Acoustic frequency response function analysis, i.e. a unit harmonic force imposing on structure and calculating the sound pressure in cavity, is applied to achieve the critical frequency. The acoustic sensitivity analysis of sound pressure level with respect to the thicknesses of damping layer panels are employed to identify the significant variables. With the help of faced central composite design, an efficient set of sample points are generated, and then the second order polynomial function of the sound pressure response at critical frequency is computed and verified by the adjusted coefficient of multiple determination. After the response surface function is verified, the effect of the thicknesses of damping layer panels on sound pressure is analyzed quantitatively, and the thicknesses of damping layer panels are further optimized to minimize the sound pressure response of the target node. The results indicate that, by using the RSM, the computational time for structural acoustic is saved and the optimization process is simple. The sound pressure of the target node is controlled effectively with less damping material used. © 2016 Elsevier Ltd.

Multi-pulse tempering (MPT) on the resistance spot welding (RSW) is a considerable method to improve the quality of spot weld joints. For its uncertain tempering temperature and large temperature fluctuation, some stable sequential coupling finite element (FE) models for RSW and MPT of DP590 dual phase steel are developed to control the tempering temperature and further determine the experimental parameters. The nugget shape and size of simulation are verified by experimental observation, and the effects of MPT on microstructure, microhardness, and mechanical property during tensile-shear loading condition are experimentally investigated. The results show that MPT and its tempering temperature have no effect on the tensile-shear failure mode and have slight impact on nugget size and tensile-shear peak load. Besides, MPT leads to lower nugget hardness and better mechanical properties of spot weld joints than that of ordinary RSW due to the formation of a tempered martensite, and the higher tempering temperature expands these effects of MPT. However, the extent of the impact by MPT temperature on microstructure and mechanical property of spot weld joints is inferior to that of the impact by the MPT process itself. © 2016 Springer-Verlag London

Optimizing the coordinate transformation matrix is a newly proposed iterative LMI-based approach for solving the H∞ static-output-feedback (SOF) control of discrete-time systems. Once a proper initial coordinate transformation matrix was found, a locally optimal solution for the H∞ SOF control problem can be ensured. However, the problem of how to choose the initial matrix needs to be further studied. This paper applies a cone complementarity linearization (CCL) strategy to solve this problem. Then, a hybrid optimization approach is developed to solve the H∞ SOF control problem. Finally, numerical examples are provided to demonstrate the effectiveness and advantages of the proposed method. © 2015 Technical Committee on Control Theory, Chinese Association of Automation.

The effects of palladium introduction on the catalytic activity of LSCF composite cathodes are investigated by comparing the performance of LSCF-GDC and Pd-LSCF-GDC cathodes. Pd-LSCF-GDC cathodes were prepared by impregnation of Pd and LSCF precursor into GDC scaffold separately in two steps. The electrochemical results show that the introduction of Pd promotes the catalytic activity of LSCF-GDC cathodes under the condition of both heating and cooling processes. The promotion is related to the existing state of Pd with LSCF under different conditions. According to in-situ high temperature XRD and XPS results, the PdO phase is stable at temperature below 700 °C, and decomposed to Pd metal at 700-800 °C during heating process. Combination XRD with TG-DSC analysis confirms that some Pd changes into PdO phase at 837 °C. Correspondingly, the phase composition changed little and the coexistence of Pd and tiny PdO is stable in the cooling process from 850 to 25 °C. Copyright © 2016 Hydrogen Energy Publications, LLC.

Because of the existence of nonlinear friction in the screw-nut mechanism and planetary gear mechanism, a method had been proposed to describe the friction feature based on the LuGre dynamic friction model. Concerning the position change of the mechanism, asymmetrical surface roughness and the influence of environmental temperature variation, the parameters in friction model may change as well. To improve such phenomenon, it designed an adaptive friction compensation controller and used the Stability Theory of Lyapunov to prove the global stability of the system. Finally, the effectiveness of this method had been verified by the simulation of the electrical parking brake system. ©, 2015, Wuhan University of Technology. All right reserved.

Based on the analysis of the fundamental principle of SVR (support vector regression) algorithm, a parametric optimization method based on Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) algorithm is proposed to enhance the global optimal searching ability of SVR parameters and to improve the prediction accuracy of SVR algorithm. The results of PSO-SVR algorithm are compared with that of grid search based SVR algorithm. The comparison shows that PSO-SVR algorithm has higher prediction accuracy, better generalization ability and faster computation speed. © 2016, Editorial Department of Journal of Wuhan University of Technology.
