Evaluation of latent heat of solidification of grey cast iron from cooling curves

The temperature history in the casting obtained from cooling curves can be used to determine some information related to latent heat release during alloy solidification. This work presents a procedure for the evaluation of latent heat of primary and eutectic solidification of grey cast iron from cooling curves based upon the Newtonian cooling principle. The thermal data obtained from quik-cups are processed with the Mathcad code in order to obtain the cooling curve, its first and second derivatives and the first derivative of the fictitious neutral body generated according to the principles of Newtonian cooling assumption. The cooling curves of seven different alloys of hypoeutectic, eutectic and hypereutectic compositions were investigated with special emphasis oil the amounts of latent heat released during primary and eutectic solidification. The values obtained are consistent with the statement that the latent heat of eutectic solidification should increase as the composition of the cast iron comes closer to the eutectic point, but the methodology is found to be unreliable for the estimation of latent heat of primary solidification.


Evaluation of nusselt number for a flow in a microtube with constant heat flux including axial conduction, viscous dissipation and second-order slip model
Çetin, Barbaros; Bayer, Özgür (2010-09-28)
In this paper, the fully-developed temperature profile and corresponding Nusselt value is determined analytically for a gaseous flow in a microtube with a thermal boundary condition of constant wall heat flux. The flow assumed to be laminar, and hydrodynamically and thermally fully developed. The fluid is assumed to be constant property and incompressible. The effect of rarefaction, viscous dissipation and axial conduction, which are important at the microscale, are i...
Analysis of the Heat Capacity for Pure CH4 and CH4/CCl4 on Graphite Near the Melting Point and Calculation of the T-X Phase Diagram for(CH3)CCl3+CCl4
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (2016-06-15)
We study the temperature dependence of the heat capacity C-p for the pure CH4 and the coadsorbed CH4/CCl4 on graphite near the melting point. The heat capacity peaks are analyzed using the experimental data from the literature by means of the power-law formula. The critical exponents for the heat capacity are deduced below and above the melting point for CH4 (T-m = 104.8 K) and CH4/CCl4 (T-m = 99.2 K). Our exponent values are larger as compared with the predicted values of some theoretical models exhibiting...
Calculation of the Specific Heat Close to Phase Transition in S-triazine
KURT, MUSTAFA; Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (Walter de Gruyter GmbH, 2009-01-01)
The specific heat C-V as a function of temperature has been calculated using the quasi-harmonic and mean field approximation for s-triazine close to the transition temperature (T-C=198 K). Using the parameters for the shear strain angle (order parameter) fitted to the observed Raman frequencies of the four bands, the specific heat C-V is calculated from the free energy of s-triazine.
Analysis of the Specific Heat in the Supercooled Solid Phase of Liquid Crystals
Kilit, Emel; Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (Informa UK Limited, 2011-01-01)
The specific heat Cp is analyzed using the experimental data at various temperatures in the solid phase of cholesteryl myristate according to a power-law formula for the rapidly and slowly cooled solid in the stability limit. We also analyze the temperature dependence of the Cp using the experimental data for the supercooled solid phase of p-azoxyanisole in the stability limit and the stability temperatures are determined for both cholesteryl myristate and p-azoxyanisole.

Three flux-type models for three-dimensional radiative heat transfer were applied to the prediction of the radiative flux density and the source term of a box-shaped enclosure problem based on data reported previously on a large-scale experimental furnace with steep temperature gradients. The models, which are a six-term discrete ordinate model and two Schuster-Schwarzschild type six-flux models, were evaluated from the viewpoints of both predictive accuracy and computational economy by comparing their pred...
