Mechanical And Thermal Stresses Anylsis In Diesel Engine Poiston With And Without Different Thermal Coating Layer On Piston Head

The main goal of this paper are equate behavior of the piston with and without different thermal coating layer on the piston head under thermal and mechanical loads that arise in the piston due to its operating. Three dimensional model of a piston heavy diesel engine has been presented. The governing equations have been discretized using a finite-volume method (FVM) and solved using multi-physics COMSOL package version 5. The results of the numerical model are showing the distribution of

Humidity sensor based on silver nanoparticles embedded in a polymeric coating

In this work, it is presented a novel optical fiber humidity sensor based on silver nanoparticle-loaded polymeric coatings built onto an optical fiber core. The polymeric film was fabricated using the Layer-by-Layer assembly technique. The silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) were characterized using transmission electron microscopy (TEM and UV-VIS spectroscopy. A Localized Surface Plasmon Resonance (LSPR) attenuation band is observed when the thickness of the coating increases, and showed a very good

Survival and Infectivity of Entomopathogenic Nematodes Formulated in Sodium Alginate Beads

An alternative control method to the use of chemical insecticides against soil dwelling insect pests is the application of entomopathogenic nematodes formulated in alginate beads for enhanced shelf life. The aim was to compare the benefit on nematode survival and infectivity of: (i) pre-conditioning of juveniles, and (ii) coating of alginate beads. The nematodes Steinernema glaseri, Steinernema carpocapsae, and Heterorhabditis bacteriophora were reproduced in last instar larvae of the wax moth

OPTICAL FIBER HUMIDITY SENSOR BASED ON LOSSY MODE RESONANCES

A novel optical fiber humidity sensor based on lossy mode resonances (LMR) has been developed. LMRs are supported here by a thin Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) coating fabricated onto an optical fiber core via a sol-gel dip coating. ITO coated optical fiber devices present a resonant maximum absorption peak in the infra-red region which is shifted to higher wavelengths when the refractive index of the medium in contact with the ITO layer is increased. A polymeric structure is deposited onto this ITO

Impedance Behaviour of a Microporous PMMA-Film `Coated Constant Phase Element' based Chemical Sensor

In this work, it has been attempted to characterize a new type of impedance sensor called constant phase element (CPE) sensor; which has microporous PMMA- lm coating on the electrode surface. It has been shown that the `constant phase angle (CPA)' behaviour is primarily due to the porous structure of the electrode surface. And the phase angle at the output of the sensor changes with thickness variation of the PMMA coating and ionic property of the medium in which the sensor is dipped in. The

STUDY OF SUPERHYDROPHILIC NANOPARTICLE-BASED ULTRA-THIN FILMS TOWARDS THE DEVELOPMENT OF OPTICAL FIBER HUMIDITY SENSORS

The study of new nanostructured transparent materials in order to control the permeability properties of the objects is a very interesting field of research due to its enormous applications in optical and electronics among others. With the aim of achieving superhydrophilic coatings it is very important to control some coating parameters such as the water affinity of the coating materials and the overall thickness and roughness at the nanometer scale. In this work transparent superhydrophilic

Cytotoxic and Bacteriostatic Activity of Nanostructured TiO2 Coatings

Nanostructures are structures, mainly synthetic (nanosurfaces, cylindrical nanotubes, and nanospheres), which range between 1–100 nm in at least one dimension and can be engineered to a wide range of physical properties. This paper aims to explore the bacteriostatic and cytotoxic characteristics of nano-TiO2 coated specimens of glass, stainless steel and ceramic with different thickness and roughness. The results show that stainless steel and glass specimens with a nano-TiO2 coating

coating. Initially, LSPR band is observed for thinner coatings, whereas multi-LMR bands are observed as the thickness coating is increased. In addition, the response of both phenomena to variations of the surrounding medium refractive index (SMRI) was monitored, studying their different sensitivities. LSPR band only shows intensity variation with negligible wavelength displacement whereas LMR bands present a strong wavelength response. The combination of both resonances opens the door in the design of

DEVELOPMENT OF A LEVELING SYSTEM FOR CONSTRUCTION EQUIPMENT

The quality of the roadway has a significant impact on the ability of drivers to drive their vehicles. Violation of the integrity of the coating, its geometrical parameters (shape), and the condition of the surface of the coating adversely affect the behavior of drivers, does not allow for correct driving of the vehicle, and leads to the occurrence of traffic accidents of varying severity. The current problem in the implementation of road construction works is to increase the level of

Effect of TiO2 nano-overlays deposited with atomic layer deposition on refractive index sensitivity of long-period gratings

This paper we discusses an effect of coating longperiod gratings (LPGs) with a thin titanium dioxide (TiO2) overlays on refractive index (RI) sensitivity of the LPG. The overlays have been obtained using atomic layer deposition (ALD) method. The method allows for deposition well-controlled in thickness, well defined in optical properties, high-RI and very conformal thin films as required for optical fiber sensors. For the investigated LPGs we obtained sensitivity of 3490 to 6471 nm per RI unit

these systems will not react or will be significantly weaker with the treated RBCs. DTT will also cleave the disulfide bonds that connect the monomeric subunits and the J chain of the IgM antibody pentameric form. When heavy coating of RBCs with IgM autoantibody causes spontaneous agglutination, DTT treatment will disrupt the IgM structure and disperse the agglutination. Indications DTT-treated reagent RBCs can be used in antibody identification to suggest the possible blood group specificity of
