The shape of the system at point 1 and 2 are labeled and shown below (Figure 5.12). The moment of the system was solved for in ABAQUS and superimposed in red over the shape of the column. It can be seen that the system moment is zero in a variety of places over the course of the loading. One place the moment it zero here is at L/2. The moment at L/2 is only zero during line-contact. Due to the symmetric nature of the buckling sequence, line-contact repeats here throughout the course of loading. Figure 5.12 Shapes of 6in3w column undergoing 1-2 modal transition with areas with 0 moment highlighted in red
Below is the simulation for the bi-laterally constrained column. Here line-contact was solved for analytically, and is highlighted in red. This system goes through the same modal sequence 1-2-3. It can be seen that the system spends more time in line-contact than in point-contact and pre-contact combined. This would suggest that for systems that often buckle into mode sequence 1-2-3, that a safe place to put a joint in the constraint would be at the L/2.

This sequence more commonly occurs on longer systems. The 12in3w simulation is depicted below (Figure 5.13). Similarly, the load-displacement is labeled where the corresponding shape snapshots were taken. Figure 5.14 12in3w load-displacement showing 1.5-2.5-3.5 modal

    There’s no bulge, break point, pop-in, and pop-up observed from the load-displacement curves of the 100mN to 1000mN peak load indentation tests for a fixed dwell time, which indicates a good consistency among the indentations. Also, the imprints showed good clarity. The load dependence of the diagonal length for different dwell times further confirmed that. The validity of the microindentation for Bi57In26Sn17 lead-free alloy data were ensured. 2.…

    Using the original equation, I counted from left to right, the amount of sign changes, and that gave me number of positive real zeros. I discovered 2 positive and 2 negative real zeros using this method. Now to find the negative number, the exact same process is repeated, only this time, the –X value is substituted in. The next step would ultimately be to use Interval Value Theorem to find what intervals the roots are in. However, I don’t have any sign changes in my table, which is what you would look for to determine the intervals, so I pretty much don’t have any intervals.…

    Langmuir isotherm The Langmuir adsorption model is established on the following hypotheses: (1) uniformly energetic adsorption sites, (2) monolayer coverage, and (3) no lateral interaction between adsorbed molecules [26]. A mathematical expression of the Langmuir isotherm is given by the following equation: Where qe (mg/g) is the amount of dye adsorbed on the solid adsorbent at equilibrium, qm (mg/g) is the maximum adsorption capacity, KL (L/mg) is the Langmuir equilibrium constant, and Ce (mg/L) is the EBT dye concentration at equilibrium. The essential characteristic of the Langmuir isotherm can be expressed by the dimensionless constant called equilibrium parameter, RL, defined by: Where C0 is the initial EBT…

    (3) Equation (3) gives limit moment about 11% higher than equation (2) regardless of h. One notable point is that the above solutions depend only on bend factor(h), not on r/t and R/r. Equations (1-3) are applicable only for the pure in-plane bending moment and the effect of internal pressure is not taken in to account. Also these analytical solutions consider constant wall thickness along the contour of the pipe bend cross section. However, the most of the pipe bends are made using a forming process and as a result, have wall thickness variation along the surfaces of the pipe bend cross section. The pipe wall is thinner than nominal on the convex side and is thicker on the concave one.…

    As the total molecular quantity of each layer remains unchanged, σ is determined by Eq. (3) , (3) where σ0 and ρ0 represent the distance parameter of the potential function and the fluid density under the condition of ambient pressure, respectively, and ρ(p) represents the density under the conditions of working pressure. For forces Fsw,j and Fsl,k acting on a single molecule, these two forces are exerted on a single molecule from an infinite wall surface and the kth layer, respectively. They can be deduced by the L–J potential function represented by Eqs. (4) and (5).…

    Therefore we can say that: Tsinθ/Tcosθ= (-ma)/mg tanθ= (-a)/g In our investigation we are going to keep the angle θ of the pendulum very small therefore we can say that the length L is going to be approximately the same for T. Also tanθ will approximately equal to sinθ. sinθ=(-a)/g x/l= (-a)/g ∴a=(-x)/l g Using the laws of circular motion we can calculate the time period using the values for a we found above. w=2πf a=-(〖w)〗^2 x Where w is the angular speed and f is the frequency. Using the equation above for a we can set it equal to the one we found previously to find T using f from angular speed. (-x)/g=-(〖2πf)〗^2 x g/l=(〖2πf)〗^2 √(g/l)=2πf f=√(g/l)/2πf T=2π√(l/g) We can also solve for g to find the acceleration due to gravity from our result by rearranging the equation.…

    Using the following givens we were capable of calculating our percent error at different stages in the investigation as well as our final answer: Mg + 1/2O2 DH = -601.8 kJ/mol Mg We found our change in enthalpy for magnesium oxide had a 13.2% error, while our change in enthalpy for magnesium had only a .682% error. Our final answer was fairly accurate, only having a 2.46% error. These errors may be accounted for by inaccurate measurements, mathematical mistakes, incomplete reactions, poor heat collection, incorrect recording of data, and poorly calibrated tools. To avoid such error one should label all materials, check each tool before use, take extra care in reading and recording of measurements, double check all calculations, and most of all be patient, labs take time and a rushed procedure leads to inaccurate data and incorrect analysis.

    If a isomorphous binary system is considered, it is an ideal solution and the ΔHmix = 0. In terms of entropy, there is no increase for pure A and B because if only one atom of B exist in mole of A, the removal of the imaginary partition hardly changes the amount of disorder. However, if the ratio composition of A and B is 50:50, then there will be a large increase in entropy in the system. Thus, the ΔSmix can be plotted as shown in Figure…
