In this paper, a new attempt has been made in the area of tool-based micromachining for automated, non-contact, and flexible prediction of quality responses such as average surface roughness (R a), tool wear ratio (TWR) and metal removal rate (MRR) of micro-turned miniaturized parts through a machine vision system (MVS) which is integrated with an adaptive(More)
The use of computational chemistry techniques via molecular modeling software provides additional support to the hair surface model by Negri et al. (1) and refines the thickness of the 18-methyl eicosanoic acid (18-MEA) lipid layer attached by thioester linkages to an ultra-high-sulfur protein (UHSP) at 1.08 ± 0.2 nm. This value compares favorably to the(More)
Nickel-diamond composite coatings are produced by electro deposition using sedimentation techniques on mild steel substrate at various cathode current density, pH and temperature. Electro deposition was carried out from a conventional Watts bath. Natural diamond powder of 6-12 µm size was used in the study. The volume percent incorporation of diamond on the(More)
In today's world, the leading industries are very much concerned about reducing down-time and increasing the productivity as well as the quality. To increase the product quality, the tool should have good performance. Drilling process is widely used in the manufacturing operations in all the manufacturing industries. In this study, two Hidden Markov Models(More)
Self-association (i.e. interchain aggregation) behavior of atactic poly(ethacrylic acid) PEA in dilute aqueous solution as function of degree-of-neutralization by Na+ counter-ions (i.e. charge fraction f) was investigated by molecular dynamics simulations. Aggregation is found to occur in the range 0≤f≤0.7 in agreement with experimental results compared at(More)
Polycarbonates offer a wide variety of physical property behavior that is difficult to predict due to complexities at the molecular scale. Here, the physical structure of amorphous glassy polycarbonates having aliphatic and cycloaliphatic chemical groups is explored through atomistic simulations. The influence of chemical structure on solubility parameter,(More)
Molecular dynamics simulations of poly(acrylic acid) PAA chain in water-ethanol mixture were performed for un-ionized and ionized cases at different degree-of-ionization 0%, 80% and 100% of PAA chain by Na(+) counter-ions and co-solvent (ethanol) concentration in the range 0-90vol% ethanol. Aspects of structure and dynamics were investigated via atom pair(More)
The intermolecular structure and solvation enthalpy of anionic polyelectrolyte atactic Na(+)-polyethacrylate (PEA) in aqueous solution, as a function of added salt concentration C s (dilute to concentrated) and valency (NaCl versus CaCl2), were investigated via molecular dynamics simulations with explicit-ion-solvent and atomistic polymer description. An(More)
We have investigated the interaction of dodecyltrimethylammonium chloride (DoTA) micelle with weak polyelectrolytes, poly(acrylic acid) and poly(methacrylic acid). Anionic as well as un-ionized forms of the polyelectrolytes were studied. Polyelectrolyte-surfactant complexes were formed within 5-11 ns of the simulation time and were found to be stable.(More)
