dimensions are 10 mm × 10 mm × 55 mm and V- notch made at angle of 45° with a depth of 2 mm then the experiment was done and values were tabulated.
3.3 SHORE DUROMETER HARDNESS STRENGTH
Hardness was defined as materials resisting property to prevent permanent indentation. Durometer is a measure of hardness in polymers, fibre and rubbers where it measures the indentation depth in the material. According to ASTM D2240 tests were conducted on specimen using Durometer in the room temperature [5]. The test is done on the surface by supplying load and measuring the indentation. The material under test must be a minimum of 6.4 mm thickness. It was carried out in different locations and the readings were tabulated. The indentation was measured and

Impact characteristics of fabricated materials depends upon resisting factor. Impact strength of all the fabricated materials is indicated in the table 1. From figure 2 (b), we concluded that material E with 5% mica has great impact strength of 0.156 Kgm when compared with other fabricated materials this is due to the high level of silica content present in it which provides very good hardness property so these results in better absorption of energy when weight is allowed to strike the material and this prevents the crack formation. Impact strength decreases when no filler materials are added to it. In case of no filler materials it has low matrix continuity between matrix and fibre with low capacity of absorption, which results in micro crack initiation which leads to failure so value was less, Then material D with 2% silicon carbide and activated charcoal shows 0.110 Kgm because silicon carbide has high hardness and excellent thermal shock resistance, but activated charcoal reacted with that lead to decrease its impact strength and its value is less than material E. The Test results shows that by adding mica to the material we can get better impact strength. From this we came to a conclusion that we should not add silicon carbide and activated charcoal. By adding mica to the material we can increase the impact …show more content…
However, the term may also refer to stiffness or resistance. Hardness characteristics of fabricated materials are presented in the table 1. From these results it shows that fabricated materials C filled by 2% charcoal shows the highest hardness number of 72 IRHD when compared with other filled fabricated materials. The reason behind that is due to continuous deposition of activated charcoal powder over the fabricated material. It has a great bonding capacity between fibre and matrix. From figure 1 (c), we came to a solution that increases in addition of silicon carbide to the fabricated materials lead to increase in hardness number and hardness property [3]. This may be due to improved capacity of bonding between the fibre and reinforcement. When increasing the filler material loading in matrix surface which reduces the indentation so values are low. Mica filled material shows low hardness number due to bond strength. The Test result shows that by adding charcoal we can get better hardness

    The variations of Δε (line III) and Pmin (line IV) did not intersect with each other, which indicate that the actual deformation of the weld metal in BTR is smaller than the ductility of the inherent material, and the weld metal could afford the deformation. The above result satisfies equation (5) of the optimized hot cracking formation criterion. Therefore, hot cracking is inevitably inhibited and the 10 mm-thick…

    The promising characteristics are as follows: (1) Carbon Nanotubes can have Young's modulus as high as 1 terra Pascal, so it is ideal as a strong bumper material (2) Carbon nanotubes have the greatest of both tensile strength and elastic modulus. [3] (3) A carbon nanotube is very hard. Standard single-walled nanotubes can tolerate a pressure of about 24GPa without being deformed. The highest pressure that the material can tolerated under experiments techniques is 55GPa. It has a greater bulk modulus of 462-546 GPA than that of the diamond.…

    8a shows a dense matrix with some small pores distributed on material. Fig. 8b shows L60 matrix with higher porosity with larger voids when compared to R. These observations are in accordance with water absorption, voids and capillary water absorption results, which showed that the binder with WTS increased the porosity and decrease the capillary suction of the mortars (caused by the larger pores in sample). Both images revealed homogenous materials, indicating efficient mixing. Fig.…

    Thus, the reaction resulted in the production of a murky coloured liquid. If a full neutralization reaction was to completed, a product of a transparent solution should have been created. Sodium phosphate and potassium sodium tartrate are both not strong bases and that is why the average pH change was quite low. Both of them are not bases, however, they have a high pH. This is why they were both able to increase the pH on the acidic solution.…

    Lee and Lai (2003) have reported that the electropolishing is very effective technology to improve the corrosion resistance of SS 316 stainless steel. The electrolyte used in this study is phosphoric acid, sulphuric acid, glycerin, and distilled water. They found that the electrolyte gap was 5mm and polishing time was 5 min produced better surface finish. The surface roughness improvement by more than threefold was seen. These values may be different for different variables such as electrolyte and cathode material.…

For Alloy 2, the corrosion potential is negative than that of Alloy 1 and Al, and the corrosion current density (icorr) of Al is less than that of Alloy 1 and Alloy 2 in 2 M NaCl medium. Passive behavior is observed on the anodic polarization curves of Al characterized by current density plateau and Aloy1 with the difference that Al current density, ipass, is much lower than that of Alloy 1. However, Alloy 2 demonstrate no passive region as presented in Fig. 4.…
