DEVELOPMENT OF AN INTERFEROMETRIC TECHNIQUE TO BE USED IN MEASURING MICRON LEVEL CLEARANCES FILLED WITH A LUBRICANT

2009-10-21
The aim of this study is to develop an interferometric technique to measure micron level clearances occurring in small piston-cylinder arrangements; such as hermetically sealed compressors. A Cartesian model of the piston cylinder arrangement is manufactured and lateral and vertical motions are generated via a step motor, and micrometers, respectively, to simulate the piston motion and the change of clearance during the motion. Experiments are conducted in air and a lubricant. Measurements show the important effect of surface waviness of the mirror and the effect of the motion of the carriage at micron level measurements.

Development of a pressure-based solver for both incompressible and compressible flows
Denk, Kerem; Sert, Cüneyt; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2007)
The aim of this study is to develop a two-dimensional pressure-based Navier-Stokes solver for incompressible/compressible flows. Main variables are Cartesian velocity components, pressure and temperature while density is linked to pressure via equation of state. Modified SIMPLE algorithm is used to achieve pressure-velocity coupling. Finite Volume discretisation is performed on non-orthogonal and boundary-fitted grids. Collocated variable arrangement is preferred because of its advantage on staggered arrang...

Burak Bakır, Burcu (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2013-05-01)
This paper presents an analytical study that focuses on the development ofa parametric equation to predict the joint shear strength. In this analytical study, adatabase containing geometric properties, material strengths, configuration detailsand test results of reinforced concrete beam-to-column connection subassembliestested under cyclic loading is established. Then, based on the experimental results,parameters affecting joint shear capacity are determined. The most influentialparameters are selected and ...
DEVELOPMENT OF A KINEMATIC FOREARM MODEL WITH MOVING ROTATION AXIS FOR PRO/SUPINATION MOTION
Araz, Matthew; Esat, Volkan; Kentel, Behzat Bahadır; Mechanical Engineering (2021-8-20)
Understanding the biomechanics of the forearm motion is essential for many research areas to improve the quality of human life. In this study, a new kinematic forearm model is proposed for estimating the rotation axis and obtaining proper forearm orientation during the pro/supination motion. As an improvement, a moving rotation axis is included as a link inside the model, and the rotation of the radius segment around the moving rotation axis is investigated. The model is tested in different motion patterns ...
