TL;DR: This review begins with the GMAW-AM procedure, performance capability, identification of factors affecting the deposition performance, and strategies adopted to overcome these issues, and several aspects such as mathematical modelling, optimization, key process parameters, and their combinations for a wide range of wire electrode material and percentage contributions are reviewed and depicted in detail.
Abstract: Additive manufacturing (AM) route is a promising approach for fabricating complex and lightweight metallic structures that have applications in various sectors such as automotive, aerospace, and biomedical industries. Laser, electron beam, and electric arc are the common power sources available for AM. Out of different metal AM techniques, wire-feed additive manufacturing has been considered as a promising alternative for fabricating metallic parts for various applications. As it provides a high deposition rate, material utilization, density, and low cost with a low risk of contamination and porosity compared to powder-based raw material. Gas metal arc welding-based additive manufacturing (GMAW-AM) is a specific approach based on wire-feed AM. This technology uses a low-cost equipment which is suitable for fabricating components with large geometries and moderate structural complexity. These advantages attract the researchers and production industries for further developments in GMAW-AM to enhance its deposition performance, process capability, and applicability in various fields. The quality of metal deposited in GMAW-AM is generally represented by the surface form, dimensional quality, mechanical properties, relative density, hardness, etc. The present paper encompasses the research developments that occurred in the field of GMAW-AM in recent years. This review begins with the GMAW-AM procedure, performance capability, identification of factors affecting the deposition performance, and strategies adopted to overcome these issues. Several aspects such as mathematical modelling, optimization, key process parameters, and their combinations for a wide range of wire electrode material and percentage contributions are also reviewed and depicted in detail. Also, a comprehensive conclusion of this review, along with future perspectives, is explored subsequently. The current review work will help future researchers to select different wire materials and GMAW-AM parameters to achieve better performances. Lastly, several future research directions are suggested, specifically the need of a framework for GMAW-AM processes for fabricating quality products with minimum distortion.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors demonstrate the synthesis of 0D porous cupric oxide (CuO) nanoparticles by two different methods i.e. reflux and precipitation, followed by calcinations at different temperatures starting from 350 to 550°C with an increment of 100°C.
Abstract: This research paper demonstrates the synthesis of zero-dimensional (0D) porous cupric oxide (CuO) nanoparticles by two different methods i.e. reflux and precipitation, followed by calcinations at different temperatures starting from 350 to 550 °C with an increment of 100 °C. The synthesized materials when calcined at different temperatures not only retain their structure, but also improve the crystalline nature. The maximum mean pore radius is found to be 4.15 nm for the sample calcined at 550 °C, synthesized by reflux technique, which is confirmed through SANS studies. The Cu (II)-O bond has been recorded in the range of 400 to 600 cm−1 and the peak of Cu-O has been observed at 603 cm−1 which is analyzed through FTIR spectra. The optical band gap of CuO is estimated to be 1.8 eV by diffused reflectance spectroscopic studies which indicate that the synthesized CuO nanoparticles are good photo-catalysts for phenol degradation within the wavelength range of visible-light. However, the polydispersity of the calcined materials gradually decreases with increase in temperature. It has been found from the Hall measurement that the synthesized CuO material is p-type in nature and I–V characteristics are linear in nature. As the Ohmic current mechanism is dominant, therefore the synthesized CuO material is an ideal candidate for sensor applications. The electrical conductivity of the CuO nanoparticles enhances when the measurement has been carried out in presence of phenol. It is seen that 450 °C calcined CuO shows highest degradation efficiency of phenol (98%) and phenol sensing.

TL;DR: In this article, the machinability characteristics of Incoloy 825 using an uncoated tool, chemical vapor deposition of a bilayer of TiCN/Al2O3, and physical vapor deposition (PVD) of alternate layers of TiAlN/TiN-coated tools under varying machining conditions were investigated.
Abstract: With wide applications of nickel-based superalloys in strategic fields, it has become increasingly necessary to evaluate the performance of different advanced cutting tools for machining such alloys. With a view to recommend a suitable cutting tool, the present work investigated various machinability characteristics of Incoloy 825 using an uncoated tool, chemical vapor deposition (CVD) of a bilayer of TiCN/Al2O3, and physical vapor deposition (PVD) of alternate layers of TiAlN/TiN-coated tools under varying machining conditions. The influence of cutting speed (51, 84, and 124 m/min) as well as feed (0.08, 0.14, and 0.2 mm/rev) was comparatively evaluated on surface roughness, cutting temperature, cutting force, coefficient of friction, chip thickness, and tool wear using different cutting tools. Although the CVD-coated tool was not useful in decreasing surface roughness and temperature, a significant reduction in cutting force and tool wear could be achieved with the same coated tool under a high ...

Abstract: THE DESIGN AND ANALYSIS OF EXPERIMENTS. By Oscar Kempthorne. New York, John Wiley and Sons, Inc., 1952. 631 pp. $8.50. This book by a teacher of statistics (as well as a consultant for \"experimenters\") is a comprehensive study of the philosophical background for the statistical design of experiment. It is necessary to have some facility with algebraic notation and manipulation to be able to use the volume intelligently. The problems are presented from the theoretical point of view, without such practical examples as would be helpful for those not acquainted with mathematics. The mathematical justification for the techniques is given. As a somewhat advanced treatment of the design and analysis of experiments, this volume will be interesting and helpful for many who approach statistics theoretically as well as practically. With emphasis on the \"why,\" and with description given broadly, the author relates the subject matter to the general theory of statistics and to the general problem of experimental inference.

TL;DR: In this article, a literature review is conducted to classify the articles on EWM applications in machining operations, which included 65 academic articles from different journals, books, and conferences since the year 2009.
Abstract: Machining operation optimization improves the quality of the product, reduces cost, enhances overall efficiency by reducing human error, and enables consistent and efficient operation. It is a vital decision-making process and achieves the best solution within constraints. It reduces reliance on machine-tool technicians and handbooks to identify cutting parameters, as a lack of awareness of the optimal combination of machining parameters leads to several machining inefficiencies. Subsequently, the optimization of the machining process is more useful for units of production, particularly machining units. In multi-objective optimization (MOO) problems, weights of importance are assigned, mostly identical. But, nowadays, the weights assignment techniques have received a lot of consideration from the professionals and researchers in MOO problems. Various techniques are developed to assign weights of significance to responses in MOO. The Entropy weights method (EWM) continues to work pleasingly across diverse machining operations to allocate objective weights. In this paper, a literature review is conducted to classify the articles on EWM applications in machining operations. The categorization proposal for the EWM reviews included 65 academic articles from different journals, books, and conferences since the year 2009. The EWM applications were separated into 18 categories of conventional and non-conventional machining operations. The implementation procedure of EWM is presented with an example along with method development. Scholarly articles in the EWM applications are further inferred based on (1) implementation of EWM in different machining operations, (2) MOO methods used with entropy weights in machining operations, (3) application of entropy weights by citation index and publication year, and (4) entropy weights applications in other fields. The review paper provided constructive insight into the EWM applications and ended with suggestions for further research in machining and different areas.
