The brake pad hybrid phenolic composites based on lapinus-aramid fibre combination are designed, fabricated and characterized for various physical, chemical, mechanical, thermo-mechanical and tribo-performance. The physical properties such as water absorption, compressibility, void and ash contents increase with increase in lapinus fibre, whereas mechanical (such as hardness, impact energy, tensile and flexural strengths) and thermo-mechanical (loss-tangent, storage and loss modulus) properties increase with increase in aramid fibre. The assessment of braking performance is done using a standard test protocol conforming to ECE R-90 regulation on the Krauss friction testing machine. Comprehensively, it is found that incorporation of higher metallic-silicate lapinus fibre in formulation relative to aramid enhances the overall frictional response. The same successfully arrests highest rise in the disc temperature even though wear losses are maximized. The same show lowest fading and excellent recovery performance. Optimally the formulation having lapinus-to-aramid proportion 25:5 experimentally optimizes the overall braking performance. The SEM micrograph study justifies the overall braking tribology and the associated wear mechanisms. © 2014 Politechnika Wrocławska. Source

The present study examines the effect of flow and geometric parameters on the performance of solar thermal collector provided with impinging air jets. The investigation has been carried out in terms of performance defining criterions which are pertinent to determine the optimal design of impinging jet solar thermal collector. The experimental investigation indicated that the impinging air jets enhances the thermal performance but at the same time the friction power penalty also increases which depress the overall performance of the system. In view of this the preference selection index (PSI) approach based methodology has been applied using various performance criterions in order to determine the optimal design of the parameters which deliver maximum thermal performance with minimal increase in friction factor inside the collector duct. The optimum configuration of the parameters obtained as a result of proposed method is: streamwise pitch ratio of 0.435; spanwise pitch ratio of 0.869; jet diameter ratio of 0.065 and flow Reynolds number of 16,000. © 2016 Source

Anthocephalus cadamba Miq. belonging to family Rubiaceae enjoys a very prominent position in Ayurveda. History of Kadamba can be traced back to Vedas, Puranas and Samhita. It grows naturally in Australia, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Singapore and Vietnam. The plant has been extracted by conventional methods such as infusion, decoction, maceration and percolation. The preliminary phytochemical screening of Anthocephalus cadamba whole plant (barks, leaves, flowers and fruits) showed the presence of saponins, terpenes, sesquiterpenes glycosides, alkaloids and absence of anthraquinones and flavonoids. A variety of phytoconstituents, such as cadambine, cadamine, β-sitosterol, quinovic acid, chlorogenic acid etc. have been isolated from the extracts. The plant has also been studied for its various pharmacological activities such as antimicrobial, antidiabetic, sedative, antiepileptic, antioxidant, antitumor, analgesic, antipyretic, anti-inflammatory, diuretic, laxative, hepatoprotective, anthelmintic, wound healing and antidiarrhoeal. The present review explores its description, traditional uses, chemical constituents and pharmacological activity so that its potential as a multipurpose medicinal agent can be understood and appreciated. © RJPT All right reserved.

Cement kiln dust (CKD) filled with different resin (straight phenolic, cashew nut shell liquid (CNSL) modified, Linseed oil modified, Alkyl-benzene modified) based brake pad formulations were fabricated and characterized their physical, mechanical and tribological properties. Tribo-performance of the fabricated brake pad formulations were evaluated on a Krauss type friction tester as per the ECE R-90 (Economic Commission for Europe Regulation-90) norms. The experimental results indicated that CKD and straight phenolic resin combination were proved best in terms of coefficient of friction, friction stability, and friction fluctuations, but inferior in wear performance and counterface friendliness. The combinations of CKD and CNSL/Linseed oil modified resin were most beneficial for enhancing both recovery and wear performance as well as reducing variability in friction. The formulation with CKD and Alkyl-benzene modified resin was observed the best fade performance and counterface friendliness. The results obtained were considered as criteria and grey relation analysis (GRA) approach was used to determine the complete ranking of the brake pad formulation. The results also concluded that the formulation of CKD with straight phenolic resin exhibits the optimal properties. © 2015 Elsevier Ltd. Source

In the modern technology, the plates of variable thickness are widely used in engineering applications i.e. nuclear reactor, aeronautical field, naval structure, submarine etc. In this paper, effect of thermal gradient on vibration of square plate of varying thickness is studied. Thermal effect and thickness of plate vary bi-parabolic i.e. parabolic in x-direction and parabolic in y-direction. Rayleigh Ritz technique is used to calculate the fundamental frequencies. The frequencies corresponding to the first two modes of vibrations are obtained for a square plate for different values of taper constant and thermal gradient. Results are presented in Table and Graphical form. Source
