    Abstract: The interface of SiCp/Al composites is an important factor affecting the properties of materials, Different interface layers have different interface bonding strengths, which have different effects on the properties of SiCp/Al composites. In this paper, the possible binding energy of interface in SiCp/Al composites is studied, then the influence of... Show More

    Abstract: Centrifugal compressors have been used in many areas of the machinery. The centrifugal compressor design is very complex, and a unique design system needs to be developed. A centrifugal compressor design system should be easy to use in interface and also flexible for inputs and outputs. The design tool also needs to be able to predicate the compres... Show More

    Abstract: MHD mixed convection flow in a lid driven enclosure with a sinusoidal wavy wall and heated circular body located at the center of the enclosure is studied numerically using finite element analysis. The upper wall is moving with a uniform velocity by unity, and other walls are in no slip condition. The enclosure vertical walls are insulated while th... Show More
