A numerical investigation of both thermal and texturing surface effects on the journal bearings static characteristics

Nacer Tala-Ighil, Michel FILLON  (2015)

Journal bearing characteristics modellization has been investigated in this paper for both cases of texture presence or absence onto the bearing surface. The thermal effect has been studied. The used numerical approach in this analysis is finite difference method. The textured bearing performance enhancement passes essentially by a minimum film thickness and a friction torque improvement through an appropriate surface texture geometry and right texture distribution on the bearing surface. It is found that the simulations results are in good concordance with those issued from the literature. The obtained results by considering the temperature effect are more realistic.

Effet du titane, manganèse et molybdène sur le comportement à l’usure des fontes au chrome traitées


Les fontes à haute teneur en chrome sont largement utilisées dans les domaines où la résistance à l’usure est recommandée. Elles constituent la troisième génération d’alliage après les fontes ordinaires et les fontes au nickel. Le présent travail étudie l’effet de l’addition des éléments carburigènes sur le comportement à l’usure d’une fonte au chrome légèrement hypoeutectique. L’objectif visé est un compromis entre les propriétés de la matrice et des phases eutectiques constituant la microstructure de la fonte étudiée en vue d’atteindre un comportement optimal en cours d’usure caractérisé par de faibles pertes de masse en cours d’exploitation. La méthodologie utilisée consiste à introduire des éléments fortement carburigènes tel que le titane, le manganèse et le molybdène. L’utilisation du titane a été variée entre 0 et 3% par contre le manganèse et le molybdène ont été introduits à des proportions de l’ordre de 0,5% combinés avec le titane (Ti+Mn ; Ti+Mo et Ti+Mn+Mo). La microscopie optique et électronique à balayage ainsi la diffraction des rayons X complétée par affinement Rietveld du diffractogramme expérimental ont été utilisées pour mettre en évidence les précipitations secondaires ainsi que les principales phases microstructurales de cette fonte. Les résultats discutés en terme de comportement à l’usure montrent que la plus faible perte de masse a été obtenue pour l’alliage titrant 3% de titane. Ceci est justifié par le fait que la microstructure de la fonte est composée d’une fine martensite renforcée par des carbures du type MC (TiC) et des carbures secondaires du type M7C3 et d’un carbure eutectique allié.

N. Hamouda, K. E. Hemsas, H. Benalla, A. Boutaghane  (2015)

Generally, low harmonic frequencies such as the harmonic of the order 5 and 7 have agreat influence to deteriorate the network current and interim the grid power factor. The objectiveis; to cancel out the selected harmonic order from the network current. The shapes of waves andthe values of the THD of the network current before and after applying the proposed techniqueare introduced. The system is simulated and investigated using MATLAB/Simulink. The resultsprove the effectiveness of the design and control strategy (α-β). This paper deals with design,analysis and simulation of a three phase three wire shunt selective active power filter. Itcompensates the harmonic currents selectively under balanced power network. In order toimprove, the power factor of the supply network, an advanced control approach based on amultivariable filter is adopted. The novelty of the proposed control approach developed in thispaper is to use a multi-variable filter (MVF), which can extract the harmonics content of loadcurrent reference, according to the axis of Concordia.

Effect of molybdenum and niobium on the wear behaviour of high chromium white cast iron


High chromium white cast irons are excellent wearable materials. Their wear resistance is due to the presence of high volume fraction of hard carbides in microstructure. Accordingly, this material is very suitable for many applications such as mineral processing, cement production and other industrial fields. Researchers have tried different alloying elements in order to improve wear resistance of this material. An investigation was conducted to determine the effect of alloying elements on the friction and wear behaviour of high chromium cast iron with various concentrations of molybdenum and niobium. The alloys used in this work were made in industrial induction furnace. Alloying elements were added in crucibles after pouring operation. Amounts of molybdenum and niobium were varied between 0 and 3%. A molybdenum and niobium combination of an amount of 0.5% was also studied in this work. Wear investigations were carried out on the as cast and heat treated state of a slightly hypoeutectic high chromium cast iron.Results showed that the studied alloy is composed of netted eutectic chromium carbides embedded in an austenitic matrix. Wear looses carried out on as cast and heat treated cast irons indicates that the best results were obtained by abrasion with 3% Mo alloy. Friction tests has also given good results but less important. Manganese comparing to niobium addition has much more facilitated the abrasion than the friction resistance. These results indicate that the alloying elements do not act similarly on the two type of studied wear. Voir les détails

Extraction and desextraction of a cationic dye using an emulsified liquid membrane in an aqueous solution

Lynda BAHLOUL, Fadhel Ismail, Med El-hadi Samar  (2013)

The removal of methylene blue (C16H18ClN3S) as a cationic dye which might be rejected in textile industry wastewaters during its production or its use was the main objective in this work. The extraction was performed by an emulsified liquid membrane (ELM) consisting of sorbitan mono-oleate (SPAN80) and di(2-ethylhexyl)phosphoric acid (D2EHPA) as a surfactant and an extractant respectively. The internal phase used was sulfuric acid. Effects of important factors (concentration of H2SO4, stirring velocity, quantities of organic, aqueous, phases, external and emulsified phases, concentrations of extractant and surfactant were studied according to the stability of the ELM. Then using favorable conditions for a good stability of the membrane, the extraction and of methylene blue (MB) from an aqueous solution was investigated. Optimal conditions were then determined and the extraction efficiency reached 98.15%. The desextraction of this dye was performed at 81.91% and the membrane was regenerated. Voir les détails

Structural and magnetic studies of nanocrystalline Fe80Ni20 alloy prepared by high-energy ball milling

Abdelhamid Tafat, Ahmed HADDAD, Said Bergheul, Mohammed AZZAZ  (2008)

Mechanical alloying is a powder metallurgy processing technique involving the cold welding, fracturing and rewilding of powder particles in high energy. It has been used to obtain nanocrystalline alloys. Fe-20 wt. % Ni alloys were synthesised using a planetary ball mill (Retsch PM400). X-ray Diffraction (XRD) was used to identify and characterise various phases during the milling process. It is shown that the bcc Fe(Ni) solid solution was formed after 2 h of milling. The steady state grain size is about 12 nm. Many nanostructures' magnetic materials have exhibited excellent soft magnetic properties, which suit so many applications. We used electromagnetic methods (hysteresis) to characterise the variation of the residual magnetisation and the coercive field.r Voir les détails

Monitoring of metal powder by eddy current

Ahmed HADDAD, Mourad ZERGOUG, Mohamed Azzaz, Abdelhamid Tafat, Said Bergheul  (2010)

Nanocrystalline Fe(1−x)Cox, Fe, Fe80N120,Cu70Fe18Co12 mixtures have been prepared by mechanical alloying using a planetary ball mill under several milling conditions. Their structures and magnetic properties were investigated. Mechanical alloying is a non-balanced process for synthesis materials. The structural effects of mechanical alloying of powders were investigated by scanning X-ray diffraction analysis. In this report, we examine the applicability of eddy current techniques in-process for monitoring of powder density particle size and the time necessary to structure variation. An eddy current based monitoring system developed to measure metal powder density is expanded for monitoring metal powder diameter in metal compounds. Experimental sensor readings were gathered using four different metal powders with known particle sizes Fe(1−x)Cox, Fe, Fe80N120 and Cu70Fe18Co12. Analysis of the data showed that the sensor output was in relation with different parameter of powder (diameter, density and structure) that the sensitivity of the sensor differed with the type of metal powder. The merit of this technique is its reliance on a simple and inexpensive sensor probe. Voir les détails

Adaptive B-Spline Model Based Probabilistic Active Contour for Weld Defect Detection in Radiographic Imaging

N. Nacereddine, L. Hamami, D. Ziou, A. B. Goumeidane  (2010)

This paper describes a probabilistic region-based deformable model using a new adaptive scheme for B-spline representation. The idea is to adapt the number of spline control points which are necessary to describe an object with complex shape. For this purpose, the curve segment length (CSL) is used as criterion. The proposed split and merge strategy on the spline model consists in: adding a new control point when CSL is greater than a certain splitting threshold so that the contour tracks all the concavities and, removing a control point when CSL is less to a certain merging threshold so that the contour aspect maintains its smoothness. Noise on synthetic and real weld radiographic images is assumed following Gaussian or Rayleigh distribution. The experiments carried out confirm the adequacy of this approach, especially in tracking pronounced concavities contained in images. Voir les détails

Design and Optimization of Friction Stir Welding Tool

Mouloud Aissani, Saliha Gachi, Fouad Boubenider, Younes Benkedda  (2010)

In Friction stir welding, the tool geometry plays a fundamental role to obtain suited microstructures in the weld and the heat affected zone. In this work, for obtaining an excellent weld appearance without void, cracking, or distortion, an attempt was made to select proper FSW tool for aluminium alloy. So, we have included in the tool a safety system aimed at avoiding premature damage, and allowing the measure of applied pressure. The improved tool was tested on AA2024-T4 and AA7075-T6 aluminum alloys sheets. The weld quality has been evaluated by means of a microstructure analysis and micro-hardness measurements. The capacity to increase the welding speed, the changes of the crystalline plans orientation in the mixed part of thermo-mechanically affected zone and grains sizes observed in micrographics underlines the effect of the pin geometry and its displacement. The micro-hardness curve shows good mechanical properties. Finally, obtained results show welds of very good qualities. This study opens new interesting perspectives. Voir les détails
