A robot for welding inspection in offshore mooring chains
In this paper, the authors present the CIRUS robot. This automatic system uses a combination of pulse-echo and pitch and catch ultrasonic strategies for the inspection of the welded area of mooring chain links in an automatic ...
Computational Modelling of Rectangular Sub-Boundary Layer Vortex Generators
Vortex generators (VGs) are increasingly used in the wind turbine manufacture industry as flow control devices to improve rotor blade aerodynamic performance. Nevertheless, VGs may produce excess residual drag in some ...
An Original Tribometer to Analyze the Behavior of Abrasive Grains in the Grinding Process
Manufacturing of grinding wheels is continuously adapting to new industrial requirements. New abrasives and new wheel configurations, together with wheel wear control allow for grinding process optimization. However, the ...
Comparison of Flank Super Abrasive Machining vs. Flank Milling on Inconel® 718 Surfaces
Thermoresistant superalloys present many challenges in terms of machinability, which leads to finding new alternatives to conventional manufacturing processes. In order to face this issue, super abrasive machining (SAM) ...
Geometrical Defect Detection in the Wire Electrical Discharge Machining of Fir-Tree Slots Using Deep Learning Techniques
Traceability is a critical issue in the manufacturing of aerospace components. However, extracting understandable information from huge amounts of data from manufacturing processes may become a very difficult task. In this ...
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 ...
