Temperature based maximum power point tracking for photovoltaic modules
In this article authors propose a temperature based Maximum Power Point Tracking algorithm (MPPT). Authors show that there is an optimal current vs maximum power curve that depends on photovoltaic (PV) module temperature. ...
Analysis and Economic Evaluation of the Use of Recycled Polyamide Powder in Masonry Mortars
Due to the considerable amount of waste plastics and polymers that are produced annually, the introduction of these waste products in construction materials is becoming a recurrent solution to recycle them. Among polymers, ...
Analysis of the Part Distortions for Inconel 718 SLM: A Case Study on the NIST Test Artifact
The present paper evaluates the misalignment and geometry distortion of the standard National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) test artifact in Inconel 718 alloy, when several layers with and without supports ...
Implicit Subspace Iteration to Improve the Stability Analysis in Grinding Processes
An alternative method is devised for calculating dynamic stability maps in cylindrical and centerless infeed grinding processes. The method is based on the application of the Floquet theorem by repeated time integrations. ...
Improving Stability Prediction in Peripheral Milling of Al7075T6
Chatter is an old enemy to machinists but, even today, is far from being defeated. Current requirements around aerospace components call for stronger and thinner workpieces which are more prone to vibrations. This study ...
Prediction Methods and Experimental Techniques for Chatter Avoidance in Turning Systems: A Review
The general trend towards lightweight components and stronger but difficult to machine materials leads to a higher probability of vibrations in machining systems. Amongst them, chatter vibrations are an old enemy for ...
Semi-Active Magnetorheological Damper Device for Chatter Mitigation during Milling of Thin-Floor Components
The productivity during the machining of thin-floor components is limited due to unstable vibrations, which lead to poor surface quality and part rejection at the last stage of the manufacturing process. In this article, ...
Statistical Approach for the Design of Structural Self-Compacting Concrete with Fine Recycled Concrete Aggregate
The compressive strength of recycled concrete is acknowledged to be largely conditioned by the incorporation ratio of Recycled Concrete Aggregate (RCA), although that ratio needs to be carefully assessed to optimize the ...
Special Issue on “Machining Dynamics and Parameters Process Optimization”
In 1907, F.W Taylor—the father of production engineering—exposed the fundamentals of modern machining and defined chatter as the most obscure and delicate of all problems facing the machinist [...]
Evaluating Disruptive Innovation Project Management Capabilities
Firms must adapt to a business environment in constant flux. Economic and political factors and the constant interruption of new technologies force firms and organizations to change and to adapt, so that they are not left ...
