On postbuckling mode distortion and inversion of nanostructures due to surface roughness

In this paper, we investigate the surface roughness-dependence of buckling of beam-nanostructures. A new variational formulation of buckling of Euler-Bernoulli rough beams is developed based on the Hamil- ton’s principle. The equation of motion of the beam is obtained with a coupling term that depends on the beam surface roughness. Exact solutions are derived for the buckling configurations and the pre-buckling and postbuckling vibrations of simply supported structures.

Electrical contact resistance and its dependence on applied pressure

The relationships between surface roughness, contact pressure and contact resistance are studied in this work published three years ago.

It is imporant to distinguish between the different conduction mechanisms acting at contacts at different scales, in order to better understand how surface structure and surface chemistry can alter the behaviour of electrical contacts

Surface roughness evolution during early stages of mechanical cyclic loading

The effect of crystal size and initial dislocation density on surface roughness evolution in FCC single crystals during the early number of cycles of mechanical cyclic loading is investigated using three dimensional discrete dislocation dynamics simulations. Crystals having size less than 2 μm show early development of surface slip localization, while larger ones show a more uniform distribution of surface steps. The surface roughness is found to increase with increasing number of loading cycles with larger crystals showing a high roughening rate compared to smaller crystals.

How 2D Finite element metal cutting simulation will help to find out surface rouness??

Hi all Metal cutting experts...

I have done done 2D finite element metal cutting simulation and validated with experimental force value. as we know.. from 2D FEM simulation, we can get only force data, stress-strain, temperature and somehow chip morphology. Can anyone kindly tell me how will this 2D simulation help me to link with surface roughness of the machined surface.

I will be  very gratefull to you all....


thanks in advance...

Profilometer software for NDT surface roughness inspection

Novacam 3D Profilometer Software

The Novacam three dimensional software programs are used with all Novacam Profliometers. The program permits the consumer to define how big the region, or line to be measured, along with the lateral resolution from the measurement.

Novacam's high end Data Acquisition Profilometer Software programs are incorporated with all of MicroCam non-contact profilometers.

Fiberglass Roughness & Flatness With 3D Profilometry

Although there are many uses for Fiberglass reinforcement, in most applications it is crucial that they are as strong as possible. Fiberglass composites have one of the highest strength to weight ratios available and in some cases, pound for pound it is stronger than steel. It is also important to have as little of exposed surface area as possible. Increased surface can make them more vulnerable to chemical attack and possibly material expansion.
