    Abstract: Heat pipe operates, with a metallic wick (or grooved) installed inside the pipe, containing fluid under a pressure which permits evaporated vapour at the hot side to fill the core of the pipe and travel to the cooled side. The vapour condenses at cold side, transporting heat by this method. This study focuses on the heat transfer performance of fla... Show More

    Abstract: A multiaxial variable amplitude fatigue life prediction method is proposed in this paper. Three main steps are distinguished. The first one concerns the counting of multiaxial cycles and uses the normal stress to a physical plane as the counting parameter. Then a multiaxial finite fatigue life criterion allows one to assess the material life corres... Show More

    Abstract: The wheel of vehicles is not pure rolling on the rail for the track irregularity, but with a small vertical and horizontal relative displacement. The relative displacement produces the wheel rail force and causes the vibration of the wheel and rail, which is transmitted to the air and produces noise. Therefore, it is of great significance to study ... Show More

    Abstract: Reciprocating compressor is an important equipment in industrial production. The crankshaft turns the thrust of the compressor piston rod into torque, which is an important component of the compressor. When reciprocating compressor works, there will be various forms of vibration such as torsion and bending. Therefore, the study of the crankshaft vi... Show More
