    Abstract: The mechanical and physical properties of fibre reinforced composite boards (FRCB) made from waste paper and recycled polyethylene was investigated. The composite boards were produced at three levels of mixing ratio (50:50, 60:40 and 70:30) and three levels of board density (1000 Kg/m3, 1100 Kg/m3 and 1200 Kg/m3). The fibre from the paper served as... Show More

    Abstract: The joining behavior of metal to ceramic was investigated using glass frit media. Glass frit with a composition of 71.5PbO-24Bi2O3-2.5B2O3-1.5ZnO-0.5SiO2 in mol. % was designed to bond forsterite ceramic and SUS 304 metal. The glass frit demonstrated a glass transition temperature of 250°C and a thermal expansion coefficient of 15.9 x 10-6/°C, whic... Show More

    Abstract: During the dry-jet wet spinning process of polyacrylonitrile carbon fiber precursor, the fluctuation of the coagulation bath liquid level affects the stability of the nozzle directly. The motion trajectory and the motion intensity in all directions of the fluid during the movement of the fiber in the coagulation bath fluid field were studied. A thr... Show More

    Abstract: ZnO thin films have been prepared by dip coating sol gel method using Taguchi technique. The underlying principle was to make something as little as conceivable the measure of examination and make sense of the best conditions for developing ZnO thin films with great properties. We used a trial plan of L9, with three levels (high, medium, low) and f... Show More
