Al-enabled properties distribution prediction for high-pressure die casting Al-Si alloy

Al-enabled properties distribution prediction for high-pressure die casting Al-Si alloy

Yu-Tong Yang, Zhong-Yuan Qiu, Zhen Zheng, Liang-Xi Pu, Ding-Ding Chen, Jiang Zheng, Rui-Jie Zhang, Bo Zhang & Shi-Yao Huang Abstract High-pressure die casting (HPDC) is one of the most popular mass production processes in the automotive industry owing to its capability for part consolidation. However, the nonuniform distribution of mechanical properties in large-sized HPDC products adds complexity to part property evaluation. Therefore, a methodology

Experimental investigation for thermal performance enhancement of various heat sinks using Al2O3 NePCM for cooling of electronic devices

Imran Zahid ab, M. Farhan a, M. Farooq a, M. Asim a, M. Imran c Abstract Electronic devices are being used extensively for different applications, where the thermal management of these devices is still a critical challenge due to rapid miniaturization, high heat flux and constantly rising temperature. Phase change materials (PCMs) based thermal management is adopted, but the low thermal conductivity limits their use in temperature-controlled electronic devices. Nano-enhanced phase change materials

Effect of Mold Temperature and Pouring Temperature on the Crack Behavior of Composite Water-Soluble Salt Cores

Effect of Mold Temperature and Pouring Temperature on the Crack Behavior of Composite Water-Soluble Salt Cores

Jingkai Zhang1, Yang Li1, Lai Song1, Weihua Liu1 & Xue Zou1 Abstract This study analyzes the effects of different pouring temperatures and mold temperatures on the crack behavior of NaCl–Na2SO4 composite water-soluble salt cores (WSSC). Firstly, calculate the solid fraction during the solidification process of the salt core using the Newton baseline method. Then predict the sensitivity of the salt core

High-Pressure Die Casting of Al–Ce–La–Ni–Fe Alloys

High-Pressure Die Casting of Al–Ce–La–Ni–Fe Alloys

Benjamin E. MacDonald1, Stuart Wiesner2, Ryan Holdsworth1, Carl Söderhjelm1 & Diran ApelianORCID:orcid.org/0000-0001-9743-606X1 Abstract The effects on phase equilibria of La and Fe additions to the Al–Ce–Ni-based alloy system are explored under high-pressure die casting conditions. The addition of La to Al–Ce–Ni-based alloy system only reacts with Ce synergistically to promote the formation of the Al11(Ce,La)3 intermetallic phase as predicted by CALculation

Induction motors with copper rotor: a new opportunity for increasing motor efficiency

Induction motors with copper rotor: a new opportunity for increasing motor efficiency

ABSTRACT The copper rotor induction motor (CURIM) was recently introduced because it has lower rotor fusion losses than the aluminum rotor (ALRIM). Furthermore, with CURIM, it is easier to reach IE4 and IE5 efficiency levels. The CURIM is advantageous for compact motors, escalators, and electric vehicle applications. However, CURIMs present slip, power factor, temperature increase,
