Tool wear condition monitoring has the potential to play a critical role in ensuring the dimensional accuracy of the workpiece and prevention of damage to cutting equipment. It could also help in automating cutting processes. In this paper, the feed cutting force estimated with the aid of an inexpensive current sensor installed on the ac servomotor of a(More)
The process of radon diffusion through slabs of concrete with different thicknesses is investigated. The solution of the relevant diffusion equation is obtained by the explicit finite difference method. It is compared to experimental measurements and to numerical results obtained by the finite element method reported earlier. A need is demonstrated to(More)
Using the power-flow equation, we have examined the state of mode coupling in strained and unstrained step-index plastic optical fibers. The strained fibers show much stronger mode coupling than unstrained fibers of the same types. As a result, the coupling lengths where equilibrium mode distribution is achieved and the lengths of fiber required for(More)
Using the power-flow equation, we have examined the state of mode coupling in step-index plastic optical fibers with different numerical apertures. Our results confirm that the coupling rates vary with the coupling coefficient of the fibers as the dominant parameter, especially in the early stage of coupling near the input fiber end. However, we show that(More)
Radon-222 diffusion in an anhydrous andesitic melt was investigated. The melts were glass discs formed artificially from melted volcanic materials. Solutions of the relevant diffusion equations were done by the explicit finite difference method. Results were compared to analytical solutions reported in the literature and good agreement was found. We have(More)
For different depth and width of the intermediate layer, a power flow equation is used to calculate spatial transients and steady state of power distribution in W-type optical fibers (doubly clad fibers with three layers). A numerical solution has been obtained by the explicit finite difference method. Results show how the power distribution in W-type(More)
By experimental measurement and from a numerical solution to the time-dependent power flow equation, the frequency response, bandwidth, mode coupling, and mode-dependent attenuation are determined for a low-numerical-aperture (NA) plastic optical fiber. Frequency response and bandwidth are specified as a function of fiber length. Numerical results are(More)
The power-flow equation is employed to calculate bandwidth of step-index plastic optical fibers (POFs) for different launch conditions. The outcome specifies bandwidth as a function of the mean input angle and width of the launch-beam distribution. For small distribution widths, bandwidth is shown to decrease with increasing mean input angle of the(More)
