Abstract

Diesel fuel is very important for countries’ economy due to it has wide area of usage such as long haul truck, transportation, railroad, agricultural and construction equipment. Diesel fuel contains different hydrocarbons sulfur and contamination of crude oil residues. On the other side biodiesel does not contain any sulfur, aromatic hydrocarbons, metals and crude oil residues, which reduced the pollution level in Environment. In this work sunflower oil is used for production of biodiesel. In experiment catalysis loading 20%wt/wt, average 5 h methanol oil ration 15:1 and reaction temperature 150°C found to be suitable for biodiesel production. As well as 20% of biodiesel added with diesel show good performance in internal combustion engine.

Abstract

A significant efforts have been done by scientists and researchers in the last few years to develop many non-destructive techniques for damage recognition in a beam like dynamic structures. In this paper, theoretical, numerical, fuzzy logic methods employed for diagnosis of damage in the form of cracks of the cantilever composite beam with an aim to detect, quantify, and determine its intensity and locations. The Glass fiber reinforced epoxy composite engaged in the analysis due to high strength and stiffness-to-weight ratios. The theoretical analysis is performed to get the relationship between change in natural frequencies and mode shapes for the cracked and non-cracked composite beam. The Numerical analysis is performed on the cracked composite beam to get the vibration parameters such as natural frequency and mode shape, which is used to design fuzzy logic, based smart artificial intelligent technique for predicting crack severity and its intensity. Online fuzzy based smart technique has been developed, first three natural frequencies and mode shapes used as input parameters, Gaussian membership functions is considered to detect cracks location and depth. The results of theoretical and numerical analysis are compared with experimental results having good agreement with the results predicted by the fuzzy inference system.

Abstract

Gears are one of the most critical components in industrial rotating machinery. There is a vast amount of literature on gear modelling. The objectives in dynamic modelling of gears has varied from vibration analysis and noise control, to transmissions errors and stability analysis over at least the past five decades. The ultimate goal of this paper is to perform planetary gear train modeling as in [1] to study the effect deflection and stresses on surface pitting and scoring. This paper is an extension of the work performed by the authors as in [1], in which the experimental work was carried out to study the effect of planet phasing on noise and subsequent resulting vibrations of Nylon-6 planetary gear drive.
