The effects of surface modifications of multiwalled carbon nanotubes on their dispersibility in different solvents and poly(ether ether ketone)
The effects of surface modifications of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) on their dispersibility in different solvents and poly (ether ether ketone) (PEEK) have been studied. MWCNTs were treated by mixed acids to ...
On the turbulent flow models in modelling of omni-flow wind turbine
The computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has a wide application in the wind energy industry. In CFD simulations, a turbulence model plays a significantly important role in accuracy and resource cost. In this paper, a novel ...
The preparation and tribological properties of surface modified zinc borate ultrafine powder as a lubricant additive in liquid paraffin
This paper investigates the effects of surface modification of zinc borate ultrafine powders (ZB UFPs) on their tribological properties as lubricant additives in liquid paraffin (LP). ZB UFPs were successfully modified by ...
The wear of PEEK in rolling–sliding contact : Simulation of polymer gear applications
The wear and friction in the pitch region of the centre of polymer gear teeth are not well understood. The transition around this point of the tooth between rolling and sliding has an important effect on the durability of ...
The tribological properties of zinc borate ultrafine powder as a lubricant additive in sunflower oil
This paper presents an investigation on the tribological properties of zinc borate ultrafine powder employed as a lubricant additive in sunflower oil. The stable dispersions of 0.5 wt%, 1 wt% and 2 wt% zinc borate ultrafine ...
