Contribution of Metallography to Production Problem Solutions II
Editors:
Josef Kasl
Online since:
November 2017
Periodical and volume:
Solid State Phenomena Vol. 270
Description:
This book contains selected contributions presented on the 14th conference “Contribution of Metallography to Production Problem Solutions” held on 6 – 8 June 2017 in the Mariánské Lázně, Czech Republic. The conference was focused on application of metallography in industrial practice - for solution of production problems, elucidation of premature failure of machine components and constructions during service, breakdowns or accidents. In addition some results of new research projects which could improve manufacturing technology or quality of machine parts are presented. Individual papers deal with failure causes and fracture mechanism, insufficient material properties and incorrect function of the components. Using metallographic analyses, which include light and electron microscopy, spectroscopic methods, physical methods for detection of defects, material structures are investigated. Results are correlated with material properties and recommendations for production technologies improvement are given.
Advanced Engineering Forum Vol. 25
Editors:
Gennadiy Pivnyak and Roman Dychkovskyi
Online since:
November 2017
Periodical and volume:
Advanced Engineering Forum Vol. 25
Description:
This collection is dedicated to the 120 th anniversary of the National Mining University (Dnipro, Ukraine) and designed for researchers and practitioners, students, postgraduates and university lecturers, as well as for anyone, who interested in energy conservation issues. In the case of coal fuels, as one of the main energy source, effective technologies for maintaining mining operations under difficult conditions are substantiated. The energy efficiency of coal gasification with the use of mining waste has been estimated, technical and technological means, as well as conditions for the introduction of the gas generator are proposed. In the aspect of the normalization of working conditions of miners, protective effectiveness of respiratory devices is established, taking into account the requirements of the European standard EN 529: 2006. The possibility of significant energy savings is demonstrated by the introduction of electric drives with group power from a conventional DC device with storage capacity.
