TL;DR: In this paper, the authors used cellulose nanofiber-supported 3D interconnected boron nitride nanosheet (3D-C-BNNS) aerogels for thermally conductive but electrically insulating epoxy nanocomposites.
Abstract: Thermally conductive but electrically insulating polymer composites are highly desirable for thermal management applications because of their wide range of utilization, ease of processing, and low cost. However, the traditional approaches to thermally conductive polymer composites usually suffer from the low thermal conductivity enhancement and/or the deterioration of electrical insulating property. In this study, using cellulose nanofiber-supported 3D interconnected boron nitride nanosheet (3D–C–BNNS) aerogels, a novel method for highly thermally conductive but electrically insulating epoxy nanocomposites is reported. The nanocomposites exhibit thermal conductivity enhancement of about 1400% at a low BNNS loading of 9.6 vol%. In addition, the epoxy nanocomposites are still highly insulating, having a volume electrical resistivity of 1015 Ω cm. The strong potential application for thermal management has been demonstrated by the surface temperature variations of the nanocomposites with time during heating and cooling.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors present an overview of major advances in techniques such as minimum quantity lubrication (MQL)/near dry machining (NDM), high pressure coolant (HPC), cryogenic cooling, compressed air cooling and use of solid lubricants/coolants.
Abstract: The past century has witnessed significant advancements in turning process, cutting tools, machine controls and coolant/lubricant chemistry. These developments have particularly enhanced the machining of difficult-to-cut materials, which are used for aerospace, steam turbine, bearing industry, nuclear and automotive applications. In turning operation, friction and heat generation at the cutting zone are the frequent problems, which affect the tool life and surface finish apart from other machining results. This mechanism of heat generation plays quite a negative role during the turning of modern materials due to their peculiar characteristics such as poor thermal conductivity, high strength at elevated temperature, resistance to wear and chemical degradation. A good understanding of the methods of lubrication/cooling at the cutting zone, reduction of heat generation will lead to efficient and economic machining of these modern materials. This paper presents an overview of major advances in techniques as minimum quantity lubrication (MQL)/near dry machining (NDM), high pressure coolant (HPC), cryogenic cooling, compressed air cooling and use of solid lubricants/coolants. These techniques have resulted in reduction in friction and heat at the cutting zone, hence improved productivity of the process. A brief survey of modeling/FEA techniques is also performed.

TL;DR: In this article, the AA7050 aluminium alloy is used as a base material with reinforcement of Silicon Carbide (SiC) at various percentage level like 0, 4 % and 6 %.
Abstract: Aluminium alloy is the popular material in the world to produce lot of light weight parts with high strength, in additionally reinforcement is consider to these alloy is improve its strength. In this investigation consider the AA7050 aluminium alloy as a base material with reinforcement of Silicon Carbide (SiC) at various percentage level like as 0%, 4 % and 6 %. The wear of this composites are analysed through the design of experiments (Taguchi approach) for optimize the process parameters. This wear study is considered the parameters are Sliding velocity in m/s (1, 2 and 3), Sliding distance in m (1000, 1400 and 1800) and percentage of composition (0%, 43% and 6%). For this experimental investigation the sliding distance as most significant factor among three. The microstructure analysis demonstrated that there is a SiC particles which reduces wear of the samples.
