    Taguching the Atmospheric Plasma Spraying Process: Influence of Processing Factors on Droplet Impact Properties Obtained on Dense ZrO2 and H2Ar75% Plasma Gas

    Ridha Djebali1, Mohsen Toujani2, Bernard Pateyron3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.37, No.3, pp. 147-160, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2013.037.147

    Abstract In this paper a study of the atmospheric plasma spraying process was conducted. The Jets&Poudres code was used to solve the partial differential equations for the conservation of mass, momentum and energy involved in the problem together with the K-e turbulent model. The Taguchi technique was used to study the influence of processing factors on droplet impact properties obtained on dense zirconia (ZrO2) under H2Ar75% plasma gas that allow optimal functioning condition. The test of the operating parameters for the studied ranges showed that the "thermal power" factor plays a key role on the state of sprayed powder. It was… More >

    On the Contact Characteristics between Droplet and Microchip/Binding Site for Self-Alignment

    Wen-Hwa Chen1,2, Tsung-Yu Huang1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.20, No.1, pp. 63-84, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2010.020.063

    Abstract The contact characteristics between a droplet and a microchip/binding site strongly affect the accuracy of self-alignment in the self-assembly of micro-electronic-mechanical systems. This study is mainly to implement the Surface Evolver Program, which is commonly adopted for studying surface shaped by surface tension and other energies, to investigate comprehensively the contact characteristics between the small droplet and the microchip/binding site. The details of changes in the contact line and the contact area when the microchip is subjected to translation, compression, yawing and rolling are drawn. The three-dimensional deformation of the droplet between the microchip and the binding site is also… More >

    Assessment of VOF Strategies for the Analysis of Marangoni Migration, Collisional Coagulation of Droplets and Thermal Wake Effects in Metal Alloys Under Microgravity Conditions

    Marcello Lappa 1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.2, No.1, pp. 51-64, 2005, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2005.002.051

    Abstract A possible approach for the investigation of a number of aspects related to the processing of immiscible alloys, made possible by recent progress in both fields of moving boundary (VOF) methods and speed of computers, is discussed. It can capture in a single numerical treatment and without limiting assumptions both macroscopic information (i.e. the macrophysical problem, heretofore treated in terms of population dynamics) and microscopic details (i.e. the microphysical problem, heretofore treated within the framework of boundary integral methods and/or under the assumption of nondeformable drops). The role played by coalescence in changing the Marangoni migration velocity is discussed together… More >

    The Simulation of Diaphragm Deflection Actuated by Shear Mode Piezoelectric Actuator in Microdroplet Ejector

    C. H. Cheng1, S. C. Chen2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.1, No.3, pp. 205-212, 2004, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2004.001.205

    Abstract A shear mode piezoelectric actuator is applied to deflect the diaphragm of pressure chamber in the droplet ejector or inkjet printhead. The deflection of the bulge-diaphragm and resulting swept volume is analyzed by analytical and numerical method. With free-body treatment of the model, the analytical exact solutions for the two free bodies of bulge-diaphragm and piezoelectric beam were obtained. Also, the numerical solution by ANSYS is obtained to verify the analytical result. Besides, the whole-model solution coupling the bulge-diaphragm and piezoelectric beam together was obtained by ANSYS to compare with the result of free-body analysis. In order to estimate the… More >
