The characterisation of die friction as a means to reduce component machining and attain near-net shape form

Özkan, Necati
The cylindrical alumina compacts, produced by the uniaxial die pressing technique, posses a certain density distribution due to the creation of uneven stress distributions within the samples, which are controlled, in a major part, by the wall boundary (friction) conditions between the compact and the die wall. Die wall lubrication reduces the wall friction and hence the density variations within the compact. The extent of the shape deviations in the sintered compacts is directly proportional to the extent of the density variations generated within the corresponding green compacts. By reducing the wall friction coefficient, between the powder and the die wall, the shape distortions in the sintered final product are minimised.

The surface topography of compacted agglomerates; A means to optimize compaction conditions
Özkan, Necati (1996-02-01)
The measurement and quantification of the surface topography of single-ended die-pressed cylindrical compacts, prepared using agglomerated alumina powders at various values of compaction pressure and cylinder aspect ratio, are described and a means to study the deformation and breakdown of the agglomerates at the die walls is evaluated. A specially constructed non-contacting laser scanning profilometer, with associated hardware and software, is described and has been used to obtain the surface topographical...
Study of sol-gel processing for fabrication of low density alumina microspheres
Dilsiz, N; Akovali, G (2002-07-01)
A sol-gel process for producing microspheres of low density alumina has been developed. A Dispal alumina sol and aluminum monohydrate were used as starting materials. Microspheres with spherical shape and controllable size have been produced by using a drop generation technique, The technique consists of producing a continuous stream Of uniform droplets of alumina sol and then converting the drops into a rigid form by exposing them to an ammonium hydroxide gelation medium. By using this technique. alumina s...
The Thermal Characterization of Crude Oils in a Limestone Matrix of Different Particle Size
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (2014-05-03)
In the first part of this research, the effect of particle size (35-100 mesh) on the calcination kinetics of a limestone sample was investigated by thermogravimetric analysis technique. Thermal studies showed that two main weight loss regions are observed in limestone samples of different particle size. In the second part of the research, thermal analysis of a medium crude oil sample in a limestone matrix of different particle size is analyzed. Two different reaction regions were observed known as low tempe...
An investigation on use of colemanite powder as abrasive in abrasive waterjet cutting (AWJC)
Cosansu, Gulay; Cogun, Can (2012-08-01)
In the present study, the cutting performance outputs (surface roughness, surface waviness and kerf taper angle) of colemanite powder as abrasive in abrasive watedet cutting (AWJC) with varying traverse rate and abrasive flow rate were investigated experimentally. The performance outputs were compared to that of garnet which is in common use in industry as abrasive in AWJC industry. A17075, marble, glass, Ti6Al4V and a composite material were selected as sample materials in the experiments. Furthermore, col...
The analysis of cooling curves for grey cast iron and its mechanical properties
Kalkanlı, Ali; GULDUR, H (2003-07-01)
Thermal analysis can be utilized to reveal the total graphite nucleated in cast irons by correlating the integrated areas under the cooling curves and graphite areas of a cast iron sample measured using an image analyzer. The aim of this study is to determine the effect of varying amounts of inoculants on the thermal analysis of grey cast iron by observing the changes in the shape of the cooling curves. DeltaT values, i.e. the observed undercooling before recalescence, can be correlated to the changes in th...
