Abstract: The wearing of bush made of brass in various applications is a cause for major concern. This study aims to analysing the various causes, mechanisms, environmental effects that influence the wearing and reduction in efficiency of the brass-steel sliding pair. The anti-friction and anti-wear properties are analysed under various conditions using a multitude of approaches. The particulate size of the dispersed lubricant (graphite and nanographite) and the temperature under which the experiment is being conducted is directly responsible for the sliding and wear properties of the brass specimen. The current studies and observations involved the use of a pin on disc apparatus, where the test specimen as the pin and slid against the steel plate (EN-31) at various speeds, loads, levels of lubrication and temperatures. The depth of wear under the different loading and sliding speeds are determined individually by means of an LVDT measurement.

Abstract: This study investigates a novel changing channel angular (CCA) extrusion process, in which high strains are induced within the billet by passing it through a series of channels of unequal cross-sections arranged such that they form specified internal angles. Using commercial DEFORMTM 2D rigid-plastic finite element code, the plastic deformation behavior of CuZn37 brass alloy is examined during one-turn and two-turn CCA extrusion processing in dies with internal angles of φ =90o, 120o, 135o or 150o, respectively. The simulations focus specifically on the effects of the processing conditions on the effective strain, the rotation angle and the effective stress induced within the extruded billet. The numerical results provide valuable insights into the shear plastic deformation behavior of CuZn37 brass alloy during the CCA extrusion process.

Abstract: Synchronizer rings are mechanical components that equalize the gear rotation to be engaged with the sliding sleeve. It is done by the friction property of the synchronizer ring material. Different types of materials are used to manufacture synchronizer rings depending on the application. There are basically two groups of material: dual function, structural and friction properties (Cu-Zn alloys, Al-Si alloys, etc.) and single function, only structural property (rolled and sintered steels, Cu-Zn alloys, Al alloys, etc.). The objective of this work was to propose a solution to the synchronizer ring structural material of a new mechanical transmission design. This component was initially designed with a Cu-Zn alloy and showed premature failure on synchronizer teeth during tests. To eliminate this problem several technical alternatives were analyzed considering the best cost and benefits ratio, defining to use the sintered steel FLC-4908 per MPIF Standard 35.

Abstract: Rotating bending and inverse rotating bending are the two different forms of fatigue. The application of regular blanking for brass under extra-low cycle inverse rotating bending fatigue was investigated. The principle of inverse rotating bending fatigue was explained at first. And then the experiment of inverse rotating bending fatigue was made in special equipment designed by the authors. Several problems, i.e. the relations of the quantities such as cycle times of fracture, the strain amplitude near the notch tip and fracture toughness of fatigue to the presetting deflection, the effects of depth and tip radius of notch on the cycle times of fracture, were discussed with the helps of experiment. Finally, The relation of depth of crack propagation to cycle times were discussed also. The suitable parameters of inverse rotating bending fatigue for blanking of brass were obtained.

Abstract: The application of regular blanking for brass under extra-low cycle rotating bending fatigue was studied. The experiments of rotating bending fatigue have been made in special equipment designed by us. Several problems, the relations of the cycle times of fracture, the strain amplitude near the tip of notch and fracture toughness of fatigue to the presetting deflection, the effects of depth and tip radius of notch to the cycle times of fracture, were discussed through the experiments. The formulae of stress amplitude at the tip of notch and fracture toughness of brass to presetting deflection were obtained. The suitable parameters of fracture in rotating bending fatigue for blanking of brass under extra-low cycle times have been proposed.

Abstract: Gears are very important and widely used driving components in mechanical instruments, and the demands of micro-gears are increasing more and more active as the MEMS technology develops in recent years. In this paper, a brass micro gear, which modulus m = 0.125 mm, pressure angle α = 20°, number of teeth z = 6, addendum circle diameter d = 1 mm, hot extruded from brass H62 billet with size Φ3×3 mm at 650°C was studied by experimental method. The microstructure of the micro gear was observed by scanning electron microscope and optical microscope, and the conclusions are as follows: the fiber flow lines within the micro-gear were formed by the extrusion, so that the anisotropic mechanical properties of the micro-gear was happened; The tissue distribution of micro-gear was that, the surface of the gear is almost entirely α-phase, while the internal part of the gear was the mixture of α-phase and β-phase, because the α-phase with lower hardness flowing outward to the surface of the gear during the extrusion process.

Abstract: A novel experimental investigation of both high and medium stacking fault energy bi-crystals of aluminum and copper, respectively, show that orientation, grain interaction and material are all key factors in the stability of some ideal rolling texture components. Ideal {110} or {112} orientations obtained from high purity aluminum or copper single crystals were embedded within a {110} crystal orientation of the same material and reduced 60 percent by channel die compression at room temperature. Spatial misorientations developed inside the deformation bands were analyzed using SEM-based EBSD. The presence of long-range orientation gradients in some of the crystals revealed the interacting nature of polycrystalline deformation. From the results it is proposed that f.c.c. polycrystalline grains can be classified according to their stability and susceptibility to deformation: (i) stable and interacting; (ii) unstable and interacting; (iii) stable and non-interacting; (iv) unstable and non-interacting.
