Abstract: This paper aims to understand the influence of sintering temperature on the drilling performance of Al 2219 – SiCp composite. This type of composite is currently used in aerospace and transportation industries. Drilling is the most frequently employed operation of secondary machining owing to the need for fabrication. This composite is usually subjected to precipitation heat treatment and needs the study of influence of sintering temperature on machining performance. The composite is fabricated through powder metallurgy route. The drilling tests are conducted with PCD drill of 5 mm diameter and 118° point angle. The experiments are conducted under conditions of different spindle speeds of 500, 1000 and 1500 rpm and feed rates of 10, 15 and 20 mm/min. Specific cutting pressure and surface roughness of the hole are considered as performance indicators during the study. Weight fraction of the reinforcement and sintering temperature are found to have significant influence on the drilling performance of the composites.

Abstract: The main aim of present research paper is to analyze the influence of compaction load and sintering temperature on relative density of low carbon alloy steel. The alloy steel powder has been compacted at different loads and sintering at different temperatures. The compaction of alloy steel has been done with a circular die of 20 mm internal diameter and 100 mm height at different load and sintering temperature. With the application of hydrostatic stress, the pores will be removed and relative density will increase. So, relative density value will increase simultaneously. This experimental study presents how relative density can be improved by using Powder Metallurgy route. The results are further analyzed with the help of Analysis of Variance using Design of Experiments Tool.

Abstract: In the present study, artificial neural network (ANN) model was developed to predict the wear characteristics of Al 2219-SiCp composite. In the development of predictive model, weight fraction of the reinforcement, sintering temperature, applied normal load on the pin and disc speed were considered as model variables. Full factorial experiments were carried out and observed wear characteristics were taken as input for the model. A feed forward back propagation hierarchical neural network was considered in the study. Out of 81 datasets, 49 sets of data were used for training, 16 sets of data for validation and 16 sets of data for testing. The results exhibit good prediction accuracy of about 85% on average of all wear characteristics and percentage error was within the acceptable limits.

Abstract: Gas detection instruments are increasingly needed for industrial health and safety, environmental monitoring, and process control. To meet this demand, considerable research into new sensors is underway, including efforts to enhance the performance of traditional devices, such as resistive metal oxide sensors, through nanoengineering. The resistance of semiconductors is affected by the gaseous ambient. The semiconducting metal oxides based gas sensors exploit this phenomenon. Physical chemistry of solid metal surfaces plays a dominant role in controlling the gas sensing characteristics. Metal oxide sensors have been utilized for several decades for low-cost detection of combustible and toxic gases. Recent advances in nanomaterials provide the opportunity to dramatically increase the response of these materials, as their performance is directly related to exposed surface volume. Proper control of grain size remains a key challenge for high sensor performance. Nanoparticles of SnO2 have been synthesized through chemical route at 5, 25 and 50°C. The synthesized particles were sintered at 400, 600 and 800°C and their structural and morphological analysis was carried out using X-ray diffraction (XRD) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The reaction temperature is found to be playing a critical role in controlling nanostructure sizes as well as agglomeration. It has been observed that particle synthesized at 5 and 50°C are smaller and less agglomerated as compared to the particles prepared at 25°C. The studies revealed that particle size and agglomeration increases with increase in sintering temperature. Thick films gas sensors were fabricated using synthesized tin dioxide powder and sensing response of all the sensors to ethanol vapors was investigated at different temperatures and concentrations. The investigations revealed that sensing response of SnO2 nanoparticles is size dependent and smaller particles display higher sensitivity. Table of Contents

Abstract: The aim of this work was to analyze the effect of using rice husk ash (RHA) and bovine bone as raw materials of glass-ceramics based on the SiO2-Na2O-CaO-P2O5 system on their physical, mechanical properties and bioactivity. All of the investigated compositions were prepared by melting the glass mixtures at 1300°C for 3 h. The resulting glass samples were heated at different temperatures ranging from 600 to 1000°C with fixed dwell-time for 2 h for crystallization. Phase identification of the prepared glass ceramics was carried out by X-Ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscope (SEM) techniques. In addition, in vitro test was carried out in stimulated body fluid (SBF). Differential thermal analysis (DTA) showed that the glass transition occurred at 505°C and crystallization at 700°C. The main crystalline phase form in most glass ceramics is a sodium calcium silicate. The optimum heat treatment temperature, at which the maximum mechanical value (620 HV) could be obtained, is around 1000°C. After incubation in SBF for 7 days, all of the samples show good bioactivity in vitro, as evident by the formation of bone like apatite phase.

Abstract: A series of experiments is made to produce silica, mixing with tin dioxide (SnO2), and characterizing for application of waveguide device. Silica xerogels (SX) are prepared from raw materials derived from rice husks ash (RHA), which abundant in South East Sulawesi. The synthesis conditions have been optimized to obtain the ash of rice husks with the maximum silica content. SnO2 are prepared from a commercial powder. The ceramic waveguide materials are produced by mixing SX and SnO2 with various composition. The mixtures are molded to form the rectangular shape of 20 mm, 40 mm, and 5 mm in size. The samples will be sintered at different level of temperatures (from 300°C to 1200°C) by using microwave heating system as well as electric furnace. The microstructural of sintered samples were characterized on the basis of the experimental data obtained using densification measurement method (Archimedes method), crystallization (X-ray diffraction, XRD), microstructure (Scanning electron microscope, SEM). Optical and related properties such as the functional groups, structure, and absoption were characterized by using FTIR, Infrared and Raman Spectroscopy and absorption (UVVis). The permittivity and permeability will be calculated from S-parameters determined by using Vector Network Analyzer (VNA). Characterization results are presented in this paper and the others are will be published in another separated papers. Furthermore, the relationship between properties with SnO2 content and sintering temperature is also studied.

Abstract: Good crystallized Hydroxyapatite was synthesized using H3PO4 and Ca(OH)2 as raw materials by wet chemical method and sintered at 800°C for 3h. The as-prepared HA powders were mixed with 15%, 20%, 25% yttria-stabilized m-ZrO2, respectively, and sintered at 900°C- 1200°C for 1h, respectively. The main phases and rules of phases changing with the content of yttria-stabilized m-ZrO2 and sintered temperature was investigated by XRD and the microstructure features of the composite powders were analysed by scanning electron microscopy. The results show that when the temperature is at 1000°C, HA starts to decompose to β-TCP and CaO, the m-ZrO2 is then partly converted into t-ZrO2 by partial consumption of CaO, which in turn results in a mixture of β-TCP and HA further. The CaO produced reacts further with m-ZrO2 generating a mixture of t-ZrO2 and CaZrO3 in different proportions. The microstructure of the HA-ZrO2 composite further indicates that when sintered at 1000°C for 1h, gray slice area represent a mixture of HA and a small amount of β-TCP. While in the white area, some spheric ZrO2 mixed with a negligible amount of CaO. When sintered at 1200°C, distinguished reduced spherical ZrO2 particles embed within mixed HA and β-TCP, which change from slice to agglomeration. As a result, when the sintered temperature is about 1000°C and the addition of m-ZrO2 reaches 20wt%, superior main phases are HA and t-ZrO2, which improves the combination of mechanical and biological properties.

Abstract: The need for WC-Co with improved properties, particularly increased hardness and strength combined with increased ductility and toughness, has focused attention on the development of grades with finer and finer-grained powders and cemented carbides. The aim of this study is to determine the sintering temperature of nanocomposite WC-6Co (wt.%) sample by using an optical microscope under high temperature and a DSC / TG apparatus. The WC-Co sample was prepared from nanocomposite powder by hot-press-sintering at the determined sintering temperature. The phase structure of the powder and sintered samples was investigated. The SEM imaging was performed on fracture surfaces of sintered samples. The density and the HRA of sintered samples were also measured.

Abstract: According to the characteristics that purple red of nixing pottery contains an amount of calcite; different samples were fired with different content of calcite in the mud and varying temperature under oxidizing conditions. The phase composition and microstructure were analyzed. The results show that number and size of pores in the sintered samples increased and pore morphology changed from irregular closed hole to round closed then converted to irregular inter-connected one along with the increase of calcite content. As calcite content in the mud increases the viscosity of liquid phase decreases while the crystalline phase gradually increased as sintering, thus wollastonite phase transformed into eutectic phase of aluminum scapolite and wollastonite, and quartz content gradually reduced. Higher sintering temperatures and content of calcite were helpful to the reduction in viscosity, as calcite content increased gradually, the amount of liquid phase increased at first then decreased.
