Mechanical behaviour characterizing and simulation of polyacrylate rubber
D. dos Santos,G.F. Batalha
Journal of Achievements in Materials and Manufacturing Engineering , 2010,
Abstract: Purpose: of this paper is to investigate the influence of EB radiation on the mechanical behaviour of UV curing polyacrylate rubber (ACM) and to simulate its behaviour.Design/methodology/approach: The material was irradiated by two different EB doses, 100 kGy and 250 kGy, its mechanical behaviour was investigated with the help of uniaxial, equibiaxial and planar shear experiments. The results were applied to the Ogden’s Model (1972) in order to obtain the parameters to simulate the material behaviour by finite element method (FEM) and to compare experimental and FEM curves. The structure molecular changes caused by EB were investigated with the help of infrared spectroscopy.Findings: In most cases the experimental results showed an increase in the strength at rupture and a decrease in the elongation at the rupture with increasing of radiation dose. Equibiaxial and planar shear tests presented similar behaviour like uniaxial results, in terms of elongation decrease and strength increase, with some deviations. Ogden’s Model third order provided simulated curves with similar behaviour in comparison to experimental curves. The infrared spectroscopy showed different chemical group contents in the analyzed regions, surface and middle region.Research limitations/implications: Two doses of EB radiation were applied; higher or lower doses were not investigated.Practical implications: Improved behaviour of UV curing ACM can extend the range of industrial applications, or improve its performance in known applications.Originality/value: Usually EB radiation has been used to modify polymeric structure and to improve thermal and mechanical polymers behaviour. Regarding like rubber materials EB is usually applied as an alternative form of vulcanization. UV is a new type of curing for polyacrylate rubbers, which are usually cured by thermal processes.

Journal of Achievements in Materials and Manufacturing Engineering , 2006,
Abstract: Purpose: Purpose of this paper was to study the main effects of the turning in the superficial integrity of theduplex stainless steel ASTM A890-Gr6A.Design/methodology/approach: The focus of the work was the finishing operations and a complete factorialplanning was used, with 2 levels and 5 factors. The tests were conducted on a turning center with carbidetools and the main entrances variables were: tool material class, feed rate, cutting depth, cutting speed andcutting fluid utilization. The answers analyzed were: micro structural analysis by optical microscopy and x-raydiffraction, cutting forces measurements by a piezoelectric dynamometer, surface roughness, residual stress byx-ray diffraction technique and the micro-hardness measurements.Findings: The results do not showed any changes in the micro structural of the material, even when the greatercutting parameters were used. All the other answers were correlated with the cutting parameters and its bettercombination was founded for the best superficial integrity. The smaller feed rate (0.1 mm/v), smaller cuttingspeed (110 m/min) and the greater cutting depth (0.5 mm) provided the smaller values for the tensile residualstress, the smaller surface roughness and the greater micro-hardness.Research limitations/implications: The correlation between all the answers was very difficult to analyzebecause there was great interaction between the factors, but for some data group it was possible.Originality/value: The paper contribute for the study of the super duplex stainless steel, considering that no oneresearches was founded for the studied topics in this material in witch presents different behavior in machiningwhen compared with another stainless steels.

D.J. dos Santos,L.B. Tavares,G.F. Batalha
Journal of Achievements in Materials and Manufacturing Engineering , 2012,
Abstract: Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to investigate the influence of different polyol/diisocyanate ratios on the mechanical and physical behaviours of polyurethane based polymers.Design/methodology/approach: Castor oil was mixed, as polyol, to diisocyanate in order to obtain polyurethane based polymers. Besides the ideal stoichiometry, polyol/ diisiocyanate ratio, ratios with excess/lack of diisocyanates were provided. The mechanical behaviour was investigated by uniaxial tests. Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) and Thermo gravimetric Analysis (TGA) were used to investigate the thermal behaviour. The various polymeric structures, obtained by the different ratios, were analysed and compared by Infrared Spectroscopy (IR).Findings: Mechanical performance was increased proportionally to contend of diisocyanate. High levels of diisocyanate have generated elongation decreasing and CO2 formation during curing, damaging mechanical behaviour due to bubble presence. Analytical experiments have showed important changes on: polymeric structures, glass transition temperatures and behaviour at elevated temperatures.Research limitations/implications: Free acid and water contend were not taken into consideration by defining the ideal stoichiometry. The investigated formulations cannot be direct applied on practical applications; fillers and additives must be added to them, which were not taken in consideration.Practical implications: The obtained results can support development of adhesives, engineering polymers and polymeric matrix for structural composites. Stabling the relation between component ratios to their behaviours is possible to define optimal performance ranges and to avoid excess of diisocyanate on polymers.Originality/value: Deep investigation of PU based material, obtained from renewable natural source (castor oil). The results can orientate development of materials for industrial applications and researches using other oils as polyol.

G.F. Batalha a,c,A. Farias,R. Magnabosco,S. Delijaicov
Journal of Achievements in Materials and Manufacturing Engineering , 2012,
Abstract: Purpose: This paper aims to evaluate the wear performance of a physical vapor deposition (PVD) coating on cemented carbide (WC) tool used in friction stir welding FSW processing of Ti alloy sheets.Design/methodology/approach: A coating of AlCrN material was applied to a WC tool in order to increase its wear resistance, thermal shock stability and hot hardness. In comparison to the conventional coatings, the AlCrN coating system had a higher resistance to abrasive wear as well as higher hot hardness and oxidation resistance. FSW processing of Ti with a coated WC tool was expected to have better performance than an uncoated tool. Back Scattering Electron (BSE) imaging mode at scanning electron microscope was used to determine the main mechanism of tool wear, which was found to be hot adhesion and inter-diffusion of tool constituents with the workpiece materials.Findings: The tool degradation was evaluated by scanning electron microscopy in order to observe the main tool wear mechanism. The real contribution of the (Al,Cr)N coating layer could not be correctly evaluated, since there is no residual trace of its components at the worn tool. What was probably found left from the coating layer was the N component which formed the nitride TiN observed by EDS mapping. The parameter conditions were probably too severe, overcoming the layer limit strength.Research limitations/implications: The research were carried out as a preliminary evaluation and this initial results in the need of a further analysis that should be performed looking for a suitable tool material and coating optimization for the FSW processing of titanium alloys.Practical implications: Despite being successfully used in other manufacturing applications like machining operations in which friction and temperature are also high, the WC tool material and the coating had an unsatisfactory wear resistance, and the AlCrN coating was totally worn during the FSW processing. This suggests that new materials and coatings are still needed for FSW tools.Originality/value: FSW process is gaining importance as an industrial joining method, but the tool wear is still an important challenge to achieve efficient and economic operation. Because of the low thermal conductivity and high chemical reactivity of Ti, tools wear rapidly due to high temperature and strong adhesion. In order to achieve higher processing speeds, reducing heat at the interface tool/work material is required, as is the use of tool materials that have little or no chemical affinity.
Experimental study of influence factors on compression stress relaxation of ACM
D.J. dos Santos,L.B. Tavares,G.F. Batalha
Journal of Achievements in Materials and Manufacturing Engineering , 2011,
Abstract: Purpose: Purpose: of this paper is to investigate the influence of electron beam (EB) radiation, temperature and deformation on the compression stress relaxation behavior of UV curing polyacrylate rubber (ACM).Design/methodology/approach: ACM plugs were obtained by UV radiation curing. Some samples were post cured by EB dose of 250 kGy, providing two material conditions. The plugs were submitted to compression stress relaxation experiments (CSR) for 5.000 min on two temperature levels, 23°C and 90°C, and deformation levels of 10% and 15%. Results were analyzed using 2k Factorial Design, quantifying the influence of these factors on the maintained compression force.Findings: The results have shown an increase in the maintained compression force, respectively a decrease in the compression stress relaxation, for all EB irradiated ACM specimens along the entire measured period of time. The increase of the three analyzed factors has caused an increase of the maintained compression force. Through the 2k Factorial Design was possible to find out the deformation as the most relevant influence factor, followed by irradiation, as second influence factor and temperature.Research limitations/implications: ACM molecular structures were not physical-chemically investigated. Therefore, possible molecular structural changes, caused by EB radiation, were not described.Practical implications: Decreasing of compression stress relaxation implicates on increasing working life of sealing components made from the studied material, besides the improvement of sealing capacity of these components, even under reduced deformation conditions.Originality/value: The use of EB radiation as successful method to decrease compression stress relaxation of UV curing ACM rubber, has opened opportunities to industrial applications. Thus, provide knowledge about influence factors on ACM relaxation behavior.

G.F. Batalha,S. Delijaicov,J.B. Aguiar,E.C. Bordinassi
Journal of Achievements in Materials and Manufacturing Engineering , 2007,
Abstract: Purpose: This paper aims to study the cutting parameters influence (cutting speed, feed rate, cutting depth and tool radius nose) on the cutting forces (cutting force, feed rate cutting force and penetration cutting force) as well as on the residual stresses, in conical bearings made of steel DIN 100 CrMn6 hardened (62 HRc), searching correlations between the residual stresses and the cutting forces.Design/methodology/approach: A complete factorial planning was used to establish the correlations. At the same time, the cutting parameters influence in the microstructure of the material and it’s correlation with the residual stress was studied. A turning center machine and CBN inserts was employed for the tests. To the cutting force measurements was carried out using a piezoelectric dynamometer. The residual stresses measurements were carried out by X-ray diffractometry.Findings: The penetration cutting force was the most important factor in the residual stress generation, and it was influenced by the feed rate and the cutting depth. A correlation between the cutting depth and the residual stresses was established. The results do not showed any changes in the microstructure of the material, even when the greater cutting parameters were used.Research limitations/implications: The residual stress is one of the major causes of failures in bearings by contact fatigue, keeping this on mind, this work helps the developer to select correct cutting parameters in order to increase the machined workpiece life in service.Originality/value: This work were based on the real components (conical bearings), real cutting conditions and with these results were possible to make greater improvements in the manufacturing and in the quality of the studied parts.
