Wind Energy association statistics says that changing from Preventive to Predictive maintenance, the reduction of maintenance costs is around 47%.
This work summarizes the corrosion, tribological and tribocorrosion response of different Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation (PEO) coatings developed on aluminium-silicon alloys destined to replace cast iron liners in a total aluminium engine block, as well as the tribological behaviour of Mg pistons improved with PEO treatments as possible candidates for Al pistons replacement.
Influence of temperature on tribological behaviour of ionic liquids as lubricants and lubricant additives
Ionic liquids are low-melting-point salts composed entirely of ions, and many of them are liquids at room temperature.
A simple method for the detection of TNF-alpha protein biomarker in human serum with great sensitivity has been developed using a surface plasmon resonance biosensor.
In the present work thermal-nanoimprint lithography of various commercial thermoplastic resists as matrixes for perylenediimides (PDIs) has been studied.
Ultrasound evaluation permits the state of rocks to be determined quickly and cheaply, satisfying the demands faced by today´s producers of ornamental stone, such as environmental sustainability, durability and safety of use.
