Publication date: Available online 20 September 2018Source: Tribology InternationalAuthor(s): Radosław JedynakAbstractThe main contribution of this paper is in providing the closed-form solutions for F2 and F5/2 integrals. They appear in problems of contact mechanics described by the Greenwood-Tripp model for the contact of two nominally flat rough surfaces. It is evident that exact solutions as proposed are better than the existing approximate solutions because they could significantly improve the results in comparison to the solutions which are obtained via existing approximants. Relatively simple approximation formulas...

This study aims at designing an instrumented artificial finger able to reproduce friction behaviour with textile surfaces. The developed artificial finger was based on a polymeric optical fibre sensor inside a polydimethylsiloxane core and an external layer with a texture similar to a fingerprint. The results obtained with textile surfaces show a good correlation with the human finger in terms of the coefficient of friction and perception of the sliding direction. The signal obtained is a combination of normal and friction forces. Therefore, like a real finger, this artificial finger is sensitive to both shear and compression.

Gilroy, Kun Wang, Younan XiaAbstractEngineering the shape and thus surface structure of Pt nanocrystals is an effective strategy for optimizing their catalytic activities toward various reactions. However, different protocols are typically used to produce Pt nanocrystals with distinctive shapes, making it difficult to directly compare their catalytic activities owing to the complication of surface contamination. Here we demonstrate ...

It was found that MoS2 nanosheets could enhance the sunlight-induced photocatalytic activity rate of ZnO by 74%. In addition, we showed that under UV-blocked sunlight irradiation, MoS2 weakens the photocatalytic activity rate of ZnO by 33%. Finally, we discussed the mechanisms behind the enhanced (weakened) photocatalytic activity under sunlight (UV-blocked sunlight) irradiation based on the UV-V...

Publication date: 1 January 2019Source: Materials Letters, Volume 234Author(s): Kun Liu, Jianzong Man, Jinlong Cui, Haibang Zhang, Ting Li, Jie Yang, Zhongsheng Wen, Juncai SunAbstractThe Li4Ti5O12/graphitic carbon nitride (g-C3N4) composite was fabricated via a solvothermal method followed by heating treatment at 700 °C for 5 h. In this method, g-C3N4 acted as a support to enhance the electronic conductivity of Li4Ti5O12. When tested as anode materials for lithium ion batteries, the as-synthesized Li4Ti5O12/g-C3N4 composite displays a reversible capacity of as high as 150.8 mAh/g with a capacity retention of 86....

Publication date: 1 January 2019Source: Materials Letters, Volume 234Author(s): Qiaoling Chu, Min Zhang, Jihong Li, Fuxue Yan, Cheng YanAbstractIn this paper, we report a thorough study of phase formation in Fe-Nb weld metals using a combination of microscopy and composition analysis. The correlation of microstructure and mechanical properties was established by nanoindentation. A simplified scenario of weld formation was proposed. Nb weld metal was dominated by the coarse Laves phase (Fe2Nb) with high hardness (∼20.4 GPa). With the addition of Cu, sound weld metal was obtained with alternative distribution of &alpha...

Publication date: 1 January 2019Source: Materials Letters, Volume 234Author(s): Yao Yang, Shaorong Li, Yuxin Liang, Bangsheng LiAbstractThe wetting phenomenon of Sn-37Pb alloy solder spreading on Cu substrate under different ultrasonic fields was investigated. Sn-37Pb/Cu wetting systems showed significant precursor film characteristics with the assist of ultrasonic energy. A short-time ultrasonic field evidently enhanced the wettability of Sn-37Pb/Cu compare to a common wetting field which had no introduced ultrasonic. At the temperature of 213 °C, spreading area of a Sn-37Pb solder drop in a 20 kHz, 1000 W ultra...
