A new appraisal of the thermomechanical behaviour of a hybrid composite brake disc in a formula vehicle

A new appraisal of the thermomechanical behaviour of a hybrid composite brake disc in a formula vehicle Research Objective This paper presents a hybrid composite brake disc with reduced Un Sprung Weight clearing thermal and structural analysis in a formula vehicle.Main purpose of this study is to analyse thermomechanical behaviour of composite brake disc for a formula vehicle under severe braking conditions. Methodology In the disk brake system, the disc is a major part of a device used for slowing or stopping the rotation of a wheel. Repetitive braking of the vehicle leads to heat generation during each braking condition. Based on the practical understanding the brake disc was remodelled with unique slotting patterns and grooves, using the selected aluminium alloy of (AA8081) with reinforcement particle of Silicon carbide (SiC) and Graphite (Gr) as a hybrid composite material for this proposed work.

Filter Element Cleaning Methods

This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) provides technical information to assist the development of specific cleaning methods for filter elements. Consideration is limited to filter elements which are designated as "cleanable" (not "disposable"), but which cannot be cleaned by simple and obvious procedures. Cleaning methods developed according to this report should be evaluated by the methods of ARP725. Satisfactory cleaning methods can be developed for most "cleanable" filter elements. Technical or economic feasibility of the cleaning method may be limited, however, by incompatibility of filter-element construction materials, by mechanical weakness or lack of corrosion resistance to withstand repeated or continued cleaning, or by the presence of unusually tenacious contamination. These factors must be considered when selecting approaches to the development of specific methods.

Heat Treatment of Low-Alloy Steel Parts, Minimum Tensile Strength 220 ksi (1517 MPa) and Higher

This specification, in conjunction with the general requirements for steel heat treatment covered in AMS2759, establishes the requirements for heat treatment of low-alloy steel parts to minimum ultimate tensile strengths of 220 ksi (1517 MPa) and higher. Parts are defined in AMS2759. The requirements for heat treatment of alloy Aermet100 are no longer part of this specification and can be found in AMS2759/3. Due to the limited hardenability of these materials, size limits have been added to this specification.

Heat Treatment of Parts in a Vacuum

This specification establishes the requirements and procedures for heat treating parts in vacuum/partial pressure and shall be used as a supplementary document to primary heat treating specifications as applicable.

Evaluation of Coking Propensity of Aviation Lubricants in an Air-Oil Mist Environment using the Vapor Phase Coker

This method is designed to evaluate the coking propensity of synthetic ester-based aviation lubricants under two phase air-oil mist conditions as found in certain parts of a gas turbine engine, for instance, bearing chamber vent lines. Based on the results from round robin data in 2008-2009 from four laboratories, this method is currently intended to provide a comparison between lubricants as a research tool; it is not currently a satisfactory pass/fail test. At this juncture a reference oil may improve reproducibility (precision between laboratories); a formal precision statement will be given when there is satisfactory data and an agreed on, suitable reference oil if applicable.

Aluminum Alloy, Extruded Profiles (2043-T85), 2.8Cu - 1.65Li - 0.35Mg - 0.1Zr, Solution Heat Treated, Stress Relieved by Stretching, and Aged

This specification covers an aluminum alloy in the form of extruded rods, bars, and profiles (shapes) produced with thickness between 0.040 and 2.500 inches (1.02 to 38.10 mm) in thickness, and having a maximum cross sectional area of 23 in2 (15000 mm2) and a maximum circumscribing circle diameter (circle size) of 16 inches (406 mm) (see 8.4.1).
