Abstract: The Response Surface Method (RSM) and Simulated Annealing Algorithm (SAA) are utilized to analysis and optimize the vibro-acoustic properties of gear system. A simple case is illustrated to demonstrate the capabilities of the acoustic optimization design method. The results show that the method of acoustic optimization design based on RSM and SAA can effectively reduce radiation noise, and provide theoretical fundament and guidance for further study on acoustic optimization design of complicated gear system.

Abstract: An investigation of radiant heat distribution on drying area in the chamber of infrared-rotary dryer (IRD) was conducted by measuring the values of infrared radiation on drum surface of the dryer chamber and then showed in term of surface temperature (ST). A gas-fired infrared burner (GIB) was used as the heat source, radiated the electromagnetic wave in the length of near-infrared ray. The drum surface was set as an infrared radiant absorbing area, installed with type K thermocouples and set as grid. Different levels of drum diameters (D=700, 900 and 1100 mm.), infrared peak wavelengths (IRP=3.32, 2.97 and 2.70 micron), distances between GIB and drum surface (H=300, 400 and 500 mm.), grid positions on drum surface (longitudinal direction (L) and radial direction (W) = 900 x 900 mm2) were applied. Then, distribution of surface temperature values was analyzed, based on response surface methodology (RSM) obtained from a second order polynomial model. The results showed that IR and H were the main factors affecting the radiant heat distribution. Then, the surface plots of ST levels on the absorbing drum surfaces in the rotary drying chamber were constructed. The contour plot results were indicative of a use for the design and selection of an appropriate size of area for drying with uniform distribution of IR in accordance with user-defined parameters.

Abstract: In this paper, the sundi wood dust reinforced epoxy composite is developed with three different filler content. The tensile and flexural tests are performed at three different speeds to study the mechanical behavior of the composites. Experiments are conducted based on central composite design considering two factors viz. speed and filler content. The experimental data are statistically analyzed by using analysis of variance to find out the significant parameters. Response surface design has been employed to determine optimum design parameters. It has been observed from the analysis that speed is the main significant factor affecting the load and tensile stress values but for flexural stress, filler content is the main significant factor at 95% confidence level.

Abstract: In the present work, an attempt has been made to analyze the factors influencing tool wear while milling Al/Al2O3/Gr particulate composites. Materials used for the present investigation are Al 6061-aluminium alloy reinforced with alumina (Al2O3) of size 45 microns and graphite (Gr) of an average size 60 microns, which are produced by stir casting route. Central composite design (CCD) was employed in developing the tool wear model in relation to machining parameters such as feed rate, cutting speed, depth of cut and weight fraction of Alumina. From the Analysis of variance (ANOVA), it is found that feed is the dominant parameter for tool wear whereas weight fraction of alumina shows minimal effect on tool wear compared to other parameters. From the Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), the Al2O3 and Gr particles get adhered to the tool surface owing to the high pressure generated at the tool-workpiece interface.

Abstract: This study focuses on the analysis of plastic injection moulding process simulation using Autodesk Moldflow Insight (AMI) software in order to minimize shrinkage by optimizing the process parameters. Two types of gates which is single and dual gates have been analysed. Nessei NEX 1000 injection moulding machine and P20 mould material details are incorporated in this study on top of Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) as a moulded thermoplastic material. Coolant inlet temperature, melt temperature, packing pressure and cooling time are selected as a variable parameter. Design Expert software is obtained as a medium for analysis and optimisation to minimize the shrinkage. The polynomial models are obtained using Design of Experiment (DOE) integrated with RSM Center Composite Design (CCD) method in this study. The results show that packing pressure is a main factor that contributed to shrinkage followed by coolant inlet temperature, while melt temperature and cooling time has less significant for both single and dual gates. Meanwhile, single gate shows a better result of shrinkage compared to the dual gates.

Abstract: Nimonic C-263 alloy is extensively used in the field of like aerospace, power generators and heat exchangers due to its higher thermal properties. In this work, an attempt has been made to investigate the effect of the cutting parameters (cutting speed, feed rate & depth of cut) on tool wear (flank wear) in the machining of this alloy with a PVD coated carbide insert. The experiments were conducted using Taguchi’s experimental design. A second order response surface model has been established between the cutting parameters and flank wear using response surface methodology. The predicted optimal value of flank wear for coated carbide is 0.190mm. The results are confirmed by conducting verification experiments.

Abstract: The present study aims to determine the optimum blank shape design for the deep drawing of Elliptical-shape cups with a uniform trimming allowance at the flange i.e. cups without ears. This earing defect is caused by planar anisotropy in the sheet and the friction between the blank and punch/die. In this research, a new method for optimum blank shape design using finite element analysis has been proposed. Present study describes the approach of applying Response Surface Methodology (RSM) with Reduced Basis Technique (RBT) to assist engineers in the blank optimization in sheet metal forming. The primary objective of the method is to reduce the enormous number of design variables required to define the blank shape. RBT is a weighted combination of several basis shapes. The aim of the method is to find the best combination using the weights for each blank shape as the design variables. A multi-level design process is developed to find suitable basis shapes or trial shapes at each level that can be used in the reduced basis technique. Each level is treated as a separated optimization problem until the required objective – minimum earing function – is achieved. The experimental design of RSM method is used to build the approximation model and to perform optimization. MATLAB software has been used for building RSM model. Explicit non-linear finite element (FE) Code Abaqus/CAE is used to simulate the deep drawing process. FE models are constructed incorporating the exact physical conditions of the process such as tooling design like die profile radius, punch corner radius, etc., material used, coefficient of friction, punch speed and blank holder force. The material used for the analysis is Stainless steel St12. A quantitative earing function is defined to measure the amount of earing and to compare the deformed shape and target shape set for each stage of the analysis. The cycle is repeated until the converged results are achieved. This iterative design process leads to optimal blank shape. So through the investigation the proposed method of optimal blank design is found to be very effective in the deep drawing process and can be further applied to other stamping applications.
