In the present work an attempt has been made to achieve minimum average part surface roughness (best overall surface quality) for Stereolithography processed parts by determining optimum part deposition orientation. A conventional optimization algorithm based on Trust Region Method (available with MATLAB 6.5 optimization tool box) has been used to solve the(More)
Moist heat in the form of saturated steam under pressure, is by far the most reliable medium, known for the destruction of all forms of microbial life. Steam sterilisation, therefore, is the most economical, effective and widely used method of seeking sterilisation in hospital practice. This article aims at describing the principle mechanism that makes(More)
