The quality of the end product in mineral wool production depends on the fiberisation process on the spinning machine. An important process variable is the fluctuation of melt volume flow from the melter. In this paper, a method for measuring melt volume flow, which is based on the measuring the diameter and flow velocity using machine vision, is presented. The velocity is measured by measuring the time of the travel of flow disturbances on two consecutive images using a correlation method. The flow disturbances are generated using a pneumatic system. The results of laboratory calibration using water as well as the results of field measurements in a mineral wool plant are presented. The field measurements were performed by comparison with the weight of the final product. The results of laboratory calibration show agreement with reference volume flow measurements with R2 = 0.96 for water. The agreement among field measured values and available comparison method is also very good. © 2011 Journal of Mechanical Engineering. All rights reserved.

In this paper, we address the problem of supporting applications with high bandwidth requirements in Wireless Mesh Networks (WMN) and develop a Markov analytic framework to study the important performance measures experienced by SUs in a cognitive radio (CR) based wireless mesh network. Specifically, we study the blocking and forced termination probabilities and throughput of secondary users under systems with/without spectrum handoff and channel reservation. Based on this framework, a novel dynamic cognitive channel access control algorithm for wireless mesh networks is proposed in order to maintain given quality of service (QoS) requirements. Simulation and analysis results show that our proposed dynamic cognitive channel access control algorithm can maximize the throughput while keeping forced termination and blocking probabilities of SUs' requests under the desired constraints, which providing a solution to improve load balance among multipath in wireless mesh networks. © 2011 Copyright Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE).

Digital image matting is to extract the foreground objects with arbitrary shapes from an image. This paper proposes optimal and developed algorithms for image matting in the efficiency and user interaction,without solving an optimization problem, but transforms the optimization problem into the minimum weighted distance issues based on dynamic programming. This method begins from segmenting regions by a user with two different colors to identify the foreground and background,and then the algorithm will be automatically propagated according to sampling points.Thus we can calculate the alpha channel of the overall image. This method is much faster than the existing approaches of comparable quality. © 2010 IEEE.

A Ni-based alloy with 1.5 wt% of La 2O 3 powders was thermal sprayed onto steel substrate. The microstructure and dry sliding wear behavior of the coatings were studied by XRD, field emission gun scanning electron microscope (FEGSEM) and SEM analyses. The microstructure of the coating with 1.5 wt% of La 2O 3 differs widely from the coating without La 2O 3; the typical microstructure with 1.5 wt% of La 2O 3 is composed of net-like dendrite (Cr, Fe) 23C 6 and Cr 7C 3, cellular-dendrite Fe 23(C, B) 6, γ-Ni + Ni 5Si 2 interdendritic lamellar eutectic. Interestingly, significant amounts of net-like (Cr, Fe) 23C 6 and Cr 7C 3 hard phases as a wear-resistant skeleton were formed and uniformly dispersed in the coating. Meanwhile, blocky and rod-like hard-phase CrB scattered in the coating can also contribute to improving the wear resistance. The novel microstructure, therefore, is beneficial for wear resistance. Friction and wear tests without lubricant show that the friction coefficients of the coating are less than 0.57. There is an approximately linear relationship between friction coefficients and sliding speed. The wear rate slightly increases with an increase of load, and the wear rate of the coating slightly decreases with sliding speed. © 2009 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.

In this paper, the hydraulic press to assemble the coupling is designed after its structure characterisdic and work method is introduced. The press mounting device is used to assemble the coupling of a small generator drived by hydraulic oil. In design, the entity model is established using 3D design software Pro/E, and the dynamic and kinimatic characteristics of the virtual prototype of the hydraulic press are simulated in software ADAMS. Thus all kinds of design defects are deleted at the initial stage of the design, the design period can be shorten, the efficiency of design can be raised, and the best and innovative products can be obtatined. © (2011) Trans Tech Publications.

The influences of cutting parameters on temperature, stress, and shear angle during dry hard orthogonal cutting (DHOC) of D2 tool steel (62 ± 1 HRC) are investigated in this paper. Temperature and stress are considered the most important aspects to be taken into account in dry hard machining; however, dry hard machining is a complex process, and the temperature fields and residual stress are the most difficult to be measured. Up to now, only very few studies have been reported on influences of cutting parameters on shear angle, temperature, and stress of AISI D2 tool steel (62 ± 1 HRC). In this paper, the Johnson-Cook model is utilized to propose a finite element (FE) model. The FE model is properly calibrated by means of an iterative procedure based on the comparison between experimental resultant forces obtained from literatures and simulated resultant forces. At last, this FE model is utilized to predict the influences of cutting speed and depth of cut on temperature fields and residual stress within a workpiece, cutting tool edge temperature, and shear angle during DHOC hardened AISI D2 tool steel (62 ± 1 HRC) and validated by experimental results. As shown in this investigation, it is also possible to properly analyze the influences of cutting parameters on the cutting mechanism for industrial application. © 2010 Springer-Verlag London Limited.

In order to research the plasticity of the Cu-based bulk amorphous and the influence of rare earth element on the mechanical properties of the amorphous, the Cu50-xZr42Al8Gdx (x=0, 2, 4) alloy rods with 3.0 mm in diameter were prepared by the suspend melting-copper mold suction casting. The structure and glass forming ability of the alloys were analyzed by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), respectively. Subsequently, through the compression performance testing and the fracture morphology observation, the effect of rare earth element Gd on the mechanical performance and the fracture behavior of the samples were investigated. The results show that the structure of the rods is composed of amorphous phase. The samples possess larger thermal stability and good glass formation ability. With the increase of Gd content, the brittleness of the samples is enhanced gradually. Fracture mode presents brittle fracture.
