A tribological investigation of two ionic liquids (ILs) that could be used as potential lubricants for vacuum or space applications is presented.
The use of carbon-based coatings (hydrogenated and non-hydrogenated DLC, doped and alloyed-DLC) is of wide interest due to its applications in mechanical components submitted to friction and wear including sliding parts in automotive engines.
In this work, an analytical tri-dimensional eccentricity model of a rod lip seal is presented. In the specific, a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) rod lip seal was considered.
Amperometric magnetoimmunoassay for the direct detection of tumor necrosis factor alpha biomarker in human serum
An amperometric immunoassay for the determination of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFα) protein biomarker in human serum based on the use of magnetic microbeads (MBs) and disposable screen-printed carbon electrodes (SPCEs) has been developed.
Experimental evaluation of a special purpose miniature machine tool with parallel kinematics architecture: Free leg hexapod
This paper reports on multi-scope evaluation of the special purpose in situ parallel kinematics machine tool known as the Free-Leg Hexapod or FreeHex.
New composites and nano-composites polymers are continuously developed satisfying more and more exigent demands in terms of mechanical and tribological properties.
