Tribology of gears

Introduction Gears are the mechanical transmission elements that are toothed to transfer the motion and power between any mechanical components. They are widely used in various devices such as automobile parts, clocks, mechanical machines, bicycles, […]

The researchers intend to carry out more research using vanadium as the electrolyte, with practices to protect its oxidation by air. Initial experimentation shows that vanadium can be used and will cycle in a similar manner to the zinc iodide redox system.

Microtubular flow battery

HIGHLIGHTS • The volumetric power density of a redox flow battery was increased through the development of a submillimeter bundled microtubular membrane (SBMT). • By using a zinc iodide redox, the volumetric power density for […]

Reciprocating Sliding Friction and Wear test

Friction and wear are two important factors affecting mechanical components’ performance and durability. Reciprocating sliding friction and wear tests evaluate the tribological properties of materials and coatings under simulated sliding conditions. These tests can provide […]
