This work at ®rst look discusses the in¯uence of the tool path strategy on the cycle time of high-speed milling operations. Experiments and predictions were focused on pocketing operations with a zigzag tool path, quantifying the signi®cant discrepancy between the programmed feed rate and the actual average feed rate. A mechanistic approach for cycle time(More)
Despite the copious amount of research on the design and operation of micromixers, there are few works regarding manufacture technology aimed at implementation beyond academic environments. This work evaluates the viability of xurography as a rapid fabrication tool for the development of ultra-low cost microfluidic technology for extreme Point-of-Care (POC)(More)
Economic globalization, together with heightened market competition and increasingly short product life cycles are motivating companies to use advanced manufacturing technologies. Use of high speed machining is increasingly widespread; however, as the technology is relatively new, it lacks a deep-rooted knowledge base which would facilitate implementation.(More)

For decades polyphenols have been considered to be sound, naturally occurring therapeutic compounds. While there are several polyphenols with special applications used in the treatment of cancer and other diseases, they need a specific carrier in order to reach the cells targeted for treatment. Recently, a number of new technologies have been developed on a(More)
In this paper we have modified an existing material model introduced by Cantournet and co-workers to take into account softening and residual strain effects observed in polymeric materials reinforced with carbon nanotubes when subjected to loading and unloading cycles. In order to assess the accuracy of the modified material model, we have compared(More)
The health status evolving from normal to broken condition of wear tool are needed as an object of assessment in condition-based maintenance (CBM). This paper proposes a continuous Hidden Markov Models (CHMM) to assess the status of the wear tool online based on the normal dataset in the same case. A waveletpackets technology is used to feature extraction(More)
