Windshield & Windows fogging up in cars has long been a topic of interest & concern. Lot of research has already been put into Front/Rear windshield fogging up issue and, Defrosters, Heated Windshields have been designed to remove the fog effectively. However, Windows Fogging up is still one of the major concerns faced while driving, as it obscures the drivers' field of vision and raises safety concerns. Windows fogging up is a phenomenon in which Moisture is condensed on the glass of the window. It is classified into two categories - Inside Fogging and Outside Fogging. When Ambient temperature is lower than the cabin temperature, the moisture is condensed on the inside surface of the glass. In this case the moisture is added inside the cabin by the occupants when they exhale air. Similarly when the Cabin temperature is lower than the ambient temperature, the moisture from atmosphere is condensed on the outer surface of the glass. A Survey with 500 Indian Customers has been conducted to understand the occurrence of Windows fog up issue…

Zinc oxide semiconductor thin films are deposited on glass substrate at different RF magnetron sputtering parameters. The deposited films were characterized as a function of deposition rate, gas flow ratio, working pressure and RF power. Field emission scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction and hall measurement were utilized to analyze the effect of the deposition condition on the surface morphology, structure and electrical properties of ZnO thin films. The deposition conditions were optimized to give good quality films suitable for the application of flexible flat panel display. All the films were deposited at low temperature of 100ᵒC.

The essential target of this examination is to compare the thermal properties of two different polyamide composite blends with inventive thermal properties. The two combination of specimen was prepared by using polyamide-6 (PA6) reinforced with 10, 20 and 30 wt% glass fiber (GF) and glass beads (GB) respectively and these composite blends were extruded in form of wire through twin screw extrusion process. The experimental study illustrates to print the specimens by means of a commercial FDM three dimensional (3D) printer. The measure the responses like morphology, thermal conductivity and heat distortion temperature of composites was observed. The results associate that SEM morphology shows high dense homogeneous distribution and fine arrangement of particles in the printed samples. Moreover it reveals that increasing thermal properties of the printed specimen like TC and HDT with the enhancement of 30% glass fiber and bead content in PA6 composites than lower weight percentage composites. The glass fibers are highly crystalline material that can even improve the thermal properties of the polymer matrix and the glass beads are dimensionally stable…

This paper presents the natural and artificial weathering behavior of leather, leatherette and textiles used for automotive seat applications. The objective of this study was to understand the UV resistance under periodic intervals and to understand the natural to artificial weathering correlation. The natural weathering under glass exposure was carried out as per ASTM G 24 and artificial weathering as per SAE J2412. The material was observed for color retention, texture retention, flexibility retention and any other changes in the construction. The natural weathering data for every 15 days were recorded, and artificial weathering for every 150 hours were recorded. Light and dark color materials were tested to understand the effect of color and UV light resistance as well as various textures were studied to understand the effect of various texture and texture retention under UV. The study was also carried out at two different period in a year and the data were recorded. The weathering of leather, leatherette and textiles exposed at different time showed different degradation behavior. Further the UV resistance of leatherette…

Tuning Material Color and Thermal Properties Separately

Published 2019-08-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

The color of a material can often tell how it handles heat. With clothing, for example, the darker the pigment, the warmer you're likely to feel on a hot day. Likewise, the more transparent a glass window, the more heat it can let through. A material's responses to visible and infrared radiation are often naturally linked.

Separating-Reattaching Flows Over an Iced Airfoil

Published 2019-06-10 by SAE International in United States
Delayed Detached Eddy Simulations (DDES) of separating-reattaching flows on the suction side of an ice-contaminated airfoil were conducted. A single-section straight-wing NACA23012 airfoil with leading-edge ice was studied. The geometry represents a realistic glaze horn-ice contamination obtained during the icing test campaigns described in [1], which has aerodynamic data for comparison. The three-dimensional transient flow behavior was simulated using the open-source flow solver OVERFLOW, version 2.2l [2] developed by NASA Langley Research Center. Configurations at three angles of attack that exhibit unsteady flow behavior starting with the bursting angle were examined at Mach number of 0.18 and Reynolds number of 1.8x106. As the stall angle was approached the aerodynamic performance parameters displayed large-scale unsteadiness where periods of attached and separated flows were observed. The time-averaged results show good agreement with the aerodynamic test data. The calculated Strouhal number for the self-sustained low-frequency oscillations is consistent with the previous experimental research.

A Penalization Method for 2D Ice Accretion Simulations

Published 2019-06-10 by SAE International in United States
Numerical tools for 3D in-flight icing simulations are not straightforward to automate when seeking robustness and quality of the results. Difficulties arise from the geometry and mesh updates which need to be treated with care to avoid folding of the geometry, negative volumes or poor mesh quality. This paper aims at solving the mesh update issue by avoiding the re-meshing of the iced geometry. An immersed boundary method (here, penalization) is applied to a 2D ice accretion suite for multi-step icing simulations. The suggested approach starts from a standard body-fitted mesh, thus keeping the same solution for the first icing layer. Then, instead of updating the mesh, a penalization method is applied including: the detection of the immersed boundary, the penalization of the volume solvers to impose the boundary condition and the extraction of the surface data from the field solution. Although the current work is intended for 3D simulations, the content of this paper is limited to 2D applications to show the feasibility of the method. Tests are performed on multi-step rime and glaze…
