  • Optimisation and formability study of AA5052 through incremental sheet
           forming
    • Authors: Angshuman Baruah, C. Pandivelan, A.K. Jeevanantham, Subhodeep Das
      Pages: 124 - 144
      Abstract: In this paper, a well-organised and optimised methodology, Taguchi-grey relational analysis, is integrated with the experimental results of incremental sheet forming (ISF) process while considering multiple response characteristics. This tactic combines the orthogonal array design of the experiment with grey relational analysis. The main objective of this study is to attain improved formability and depth at fracture and reduced downward force. Grey relational theory is applied to explore the optimum process parameters which optimise the response characteristics. The experiment is executed using Taguchi's orthogonal L<SUB align="right">9 array (3<SUP align="right">4</SUP>). Each experiment is executed under diverse settings of input parameters. From the response table, the grey relational grade value for each level of experiment is duly noted. From the analysis, the best combination of forming parameters is found out. These experimental results prove that the suggested method efficiently and effectively improves the forming performance of ISF process.

  • Hybrid optimisation model for blind spot reduction in heavy vehicles
    • Authors: D.S. Vincent, P. Pitchipoo, S. Rajakarunakaran
      Pages: 145 - 153
      Abstract: The road accidents are common nowadays and the visibility of the driver is the prime factor in such accidents. Many lives as well as money have been lost during accidents. Reduction of blind spot area improves the area of visibility of the driver which leads towards the reduction of the accidents. This paper aims to optimise the blind spot area by considering the design parameters used in the design of rear view mirror in heavy vehicles. This is achieved by using a hybrid multi-criteria decision making (MCDM) approach by integrating complex proportional assessment of alternatives (COPRAS) technique and entropy measurement. The effectiveness of the developed model is proved by a case study conducted in a public transport corporation located in the southern part of India.

  • Testing and performance analysis of micro encapsulated rice bran distilled
           fatty acid
    • Authors: S. Muthuvel, S. Saravana Sankar, R. Sudhakara Pandian, M. Muthukannan
      Pages: 154 - 165
      Abstract: This work deals with the performance analysis of incorporation of a phase change material (PCM) in building construction as micro capsules instead of macro encapsulation. Micro capsules are used in various applications, particularly in construction for passive exchange of heat across walls and roof. Completion of basic study leads rice bran distilled fatty acid-grade-A (RBDFA)/melamine formaldehyde (MF) as the suitable core PCM and covering material, respectively for the test site. Micro RBDFA capsule's thermo-physical properties were studied using thermo gravimetric analysis (TGA), Fourier transform infrared spectrophotometer (FT-IR) and differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) and all test results satisfied the basic requirements. Two model blocks were constructed, one with macro encapsulated RBDFA roof and another one with micro encapsulated RBDFA roof. Temperature variation inside the model blocks was observed. The results indicated that, inclusion of micro encapsulated RBDFA in construction gives positive effect to maintain less temperature variation at indoor that is 5-7°C less than ambient condition.

  • Assignment of machines in cell layout using modified artificial bee colony
           algorithm
    • Authors: A. Adinarayanan, M. Uthayakumar, G. Prabhakaran, V. Anbumalar
      Pages: 166 - 178
      Abstract: Cellular manufacturing (CM) is now an established international practice to integrate: equipment, people, and systems into 'focused factories', 'mini-businesses' or 'cells' with clear customers, responsibilities and boundaries. The major element in exploiting the benefits of CM is efficient layout designs. In this paper, problem of machine assignment is considered in a cellular layout. The focus is on the intra-cell machines allocation, because the inter-cell material flows should be minimal in CM. The modified artificial bee colony (MABC) algorithm is proposed to solve the layout problem. The algorithm tackles one cell at a time with a maximum of nine machines, which will be assigned into a 3 × 3 grid space according to the ranking result. This problem involves five parts and five quantitative demand periods are considered. To examine the performance of the proposed MABC, datasets are taken from the literature and the results are compared with those of other approaches. The proposed MABC provides an optimal layout exactly.

  • Performance of consistent through-thickness electric potential
           distribution for Euler-Bernoulli piezoelectric beam finite elements
    • Authors: Litesh N. Sulbhewar, P. Raveendranath
      Pages: 179 - 198
      Abstract: An accurate piezoelectric beam finite element analysis essentially requires appropriate assumptions of the field variables involved in the formulation. The conventional Euler-Bernoulli piezoelectric beam finite elements assume an independent linear through-thickness distribution of electric potential in a physical piezoelectric layer which is actually nonlinear due to induced potential effects. Here, a consistent through-thickness potential distribution in a physical piezoelectric layer derived from the electrostatic equilibrium equation is tested for its accuracy against the linear assumption. This consistent potential field contains, in addition to the conventional linear terms, a higher order term coupled with bending strain. Thus, this finite element, though employing higher order potential, does not increase the number of nodal electrical degrees of freedom. It is shown that the performance of the present formulation with consistent through-thickness potential is insensitive to the geometric configuration and material properties of the beam cross-section, unlike the conventional formulations.

  • Ant-based job shop scheduling with genetic algorithm for makespan
           minimisation on identical machines
    • Authors: S. Kavitha, P. Venkumar
      Pages: 199 - 206
      Abstract: The ant-based optimisation techniques have been used in various problems and could be used in job shop scheduling. The application of ant-based method in job shop scheduling is to find out the sequence of jobs with low time complexity. A new ant-based job shop scheduling algorithm with genetic algorithm is proposed using support, which generates a scheduling of jobs with low waited time for the processes while scheduling the jobs. The support in the new genetic algorithm is inversely proportional to the time complexity. The genetic algorithm with support function is proposed to find out the path in which all the processes have to service with resources. The proposed algorithm produces optimal scheduling in which all processes have to wait minimum time. The problem is to reduce the waiting time of all the processes.

  • Scheduling problem solving using genetic and greedy algorithms
    • Authors: A. Muthiah, R. Rajkumar
      Pages: 207 - 217
      Abstract: Scheduling is an important tool for manufacturing and engineering, where it can have a major impact on the productivity of a process. In manufacturing, the purpose of scheduling is to minimise the production time and costs. Production scheduling aims to maximise the efficiency of the operation and reduce costs. The following approaches are used to solve the job shop problem. We keep all of our machines well-maintained to prevent any problems, but there is no way to completely prevent down-time. We can work to get our batch sizes as small as is reasonably possible while also reducing the setup time of each batch. This allows us to eliminate a sizable portion of each part waiting while the rest of the parts in the batch are being machined. In this paper, we propose the production scheduling problem solving using genetic and greedy algorithms with sequence dependant setup times considering the minimisation of the maximum completion time.

  • Optimisation of cutting parameters in CNC turning of EN-19 using
           tungsten carbide

      Pages: 218 - 228
      Abstract: Efficient turning of high performance EN series material can be achieved through proper selection of turning process parameters to minimise surface roughness and maximise the material removal rate. This present paper outlines an experimental study to optimise and study the effects of process parameters in CNC turning on surface roughness of EN19/AISI4140 (medium carbon steel) work material in dry environment conditions. The orthogonal array, signal to noise ratio and regression technique were employed to study the performance characteristics in CNC turning operation. Four machining parameters were chosen as process parameters. They are cutting speed, feed rate, tool nose radius and depth of cut. The experimentation plan was designed using Taguchi's L9 orthogonal array (OA) and Minitab-16 statistical software. Optimal values of process parameters for desired performance characteristics were obtained by Taguchi design of experiment. Moreover prediction models had been developed with the help of regression analysis to find the effect of cutting parameters.

  • Optimisation of swept angles for airfoil NACA 6-series
    • Authors: R. Meby Selvaraj, P. Ebenezer Sathish Paul, G. Uthaya Kumar, M. Ramesh
      Pages: 229 - 240
      Abstract: A NACA 6-series is one of the most commonly used commercial passenger aircraft, which is of subsonic and transonic type. This series, a laminar flow type is taken for our study. In this paper the straight wing and the swept back wings are designed using a suitable tool and it is simulated by using CFD software. FLUENT software is used to analyse the different swept angles of 0°, 25°, 30°, 35°, 40° and 45° for different mach numbers ranging from 0.6 to 1.2. Based on these results the drag coefficient (C<SUB align="right">D ) and lift coefficient (C<SUB align="right">L ) are plotted. The values for the straight and swept wings indicate that there is a reduction in drag coefficient. Then thus by means of optimisation factor the swept angle is optimised for the NACA 6-series air foil. By the help of the optimising factor we have found that 35° will be more efficient and it is the best choice for a high speed aircraft, because this wing minimises fuel consumption and thereby by remarkably reducing wave drag during flight thus reducing the cost of flight and increase the range of aircraft and at the same time it ensures a safe take-off and a smooth landing.

  • Mechanical testing of epoxy bonded eco friendly natural fibre composite
           material
    • Authors: S. Saravanan, K. Ganesan
      Pages: 241 - 250
      Abstract: The development of high-performance materials made from natural resources is increasing worldwide. The greatest challenge in working with natural fibre reinforced plastic composites is their large variation in properties and characteristics. Composite's properties are influenced by a number of variables, including the fibre type, environmental conditions (where the plant fibres are sourced), processing methods, and any modification of the fibre. The need to have composite materials that are renewable has lead to materials scientists researching on natural fibres. To minimise environmental pollution, research into rice husk, saw dust and cashew nut dust has been on for a period of time now. Rice husk, cashew nut shell dust and saw dust are easily available in huge amount. We have been considering as raw material for composite production these material are renewable sources. In this work, we have to prepare three different sample composite materials with epoxy resin. As the percentage of filler content increases the mechanical properties of tensile strength, torsion test and hardness test and impact strength were checked. In general, RH/CN/SD composite could be considered as a potential source of low cost, natural fibre for composites.

  • Mechanical behaviour and analysis of advanced polymer-based
           Kevlar-49 composite material
    • Authors: M. Kaliraj, P. Narayanasamy, P. Balasundar, M. Rajkumar
      Pages: 251 - 260
      Abstract: The fatigue behaviour of reinforced composites is complex and the present knowledge of fatigue study still needs extensive investigation of the micromechanical composite behaviour. In fibre reinforced composites mechanical properties are highly dependent on their compositions, the matrix type as well as the volume fraction of the reinforcement and their arrangements such as random orientation and distribution, which increase the complexity in the study of fatigue damage behaviour. There exist several classes of models to predict the fatigue life or the fatigue degradation of fibre reinforced composites but there exists so far no fatigue model that can be applied to a wide range of fibre reinforced composites. Thus, modifications of fatigue models are always needed in accordance with the micromechanical behaviour of different fibre/matrix composites. In this project the fatigue failure is rectified by using polymer-based Kevlar composite material. The design and fabrication involves the design of polymer matrix like as fibre and resin, hardener etc. Kevlar-49 is chosen for as fabricating material to carry out this work. The fabrication set up is made by hand lay-up and it is demonstrated satisfactorily.

  • Effect of starch treatment and hybridisation on the mechanical properties

      Pages: 261 - 269
      Abstract: In this investigation, studies are carried out on the mechanical properties of hybrid polymer composites. Hybrid composites can reach a better combination of both artificial and natural fibre properties. Different weight percentages of jute fibres were hybridised with coconut sheath to produce the composites through compression moulding. Composites were produced using untreated and treated fibres. Fibre surfaces were treated with trichloro(vinyl)silane and starch solutions. Inter-laminar shear strength (ILSS) and flexural tests were conducted on the composites. Results show that jute hybridisation yields significant enhancement in the coconut sheath composite. Composites with starch treated fibres shows higher flexural strength. Scanning electron microscopy of the fracture surface revealed agglomeration of fibres in the fibre-matrix interface, which helped increasing flexural strength.
