    Abstract: This paper presents a report on the study of structural modifications LM4 processed by semi solid metallurgy. This was with the view to determine effects of degree of cold work, thermal treatment temperature and soaking time on the structural formations in the alloy. LM4 alloy was prepared and cast in sand mould into rods of diameter 12 mm and 200 ... Show More

    Abstract: A Fourier-Bessel basis set in cylindrical coordinates is used to cast Maxwell’s wave equations into an eigenvalue problem from which the steady states of rotationally symmetric photonic structures can be determined. The rotational symmetry of the structure significantly reduces the order of the matrix making an efficient computation process that c... Show More

    Abstract: Hybrid composites are considered materials of great potential for engineering applications. One advantage of hybrid composite materials for the designer is that the properties of a composite can be controlled to a considerable extent by the choice of fibers and matrix and by adjusting the orientation of the fiber. The scope for this tailoring of th... Show More

    Abstract: Stents are usually defined as small tubular structures that are inserted into the diseased region which provide mechanical support of damaged artery or some other hollow organ to restore lumen and blood flow conditions in arteries. Recently developed stents may accumulate functions; for example, they can be used for drug delivery or for treatment o... Show More
