Development of Material and Processing Parameters for AM
Abstract: The development of parameters for a certain additive technology is the key to increase the number of materials that are processed as well as the applications. This chapter shows the details...
Evaluation and Characterization of Mixed Lubricant Systems Based on Ratios of Magnesium Stearate Polymorphs
Commercially available Magnesium stearate (MgSt) contains mixtures of the crystalline forms in unknown ratios. To date, no known study has investigated the properties of known ratios of binary or...
In-line monitoring of blending processes
Stephen Closs, manager pharmaceutics and process technology, and Austin Freedman, director, pharmaceutical development services, of Patheon (Whitby), discuss the benefits of monitoring blending...
Thermal Conductivity Testing of Minimal Volumes of Energetic Powders
Abstract: Safety constraints have traditionally presented researchers with challenges in testing the thermal conductivity of energetic powdered materials. Minimal volumes of energetic powders can now...
Thermal conductivity and specific heat measurements of metal hydrides
Abstract: There are extensive efforts underway worldwide to develop inexpensive and practical hydrogen storage materials for the implementation of a hydrogen-based energy economy. Metal hydrides are...
Experimental evaluation of the luminescence performance of fired clay brick coated with SrAl2O4:Eu/Dy phosphor
Abstract: This study evaluates the luminescence performance of fired clay bricks coated with SrAl2O4:Eu/Dy phosphor. To do so, SrAl2O4:Eu/Dy phosphor was first produced using the traditional...
Thermal insulation and hydrophobization of wood impregnated with silica aerogel powder
The aim of the study was to develop a simple and cost-effective method to improve thermal insulation and hydrophobicity of wood. Herein, we attempted to use commercially available silica aerogel...
Monitoring of Powder Homogeneity During Double-Cone Blending
A challenge central to the Powder Metallurgy (PM) process is achieving consistent and uniform products. A crucial step in reaching this goal, is ensuring powder blending sufficiently homogenizes a...
Effect of Powder Characteristics for a Magnesium Based Metal Hydride Store
Paper Highlights: The particle size and shape of as-received MgH2 and ball milled MgH2 have been characterised. The impact of dehydrogenation on particle properties has been...
