Residual Stress and Distortion – Ceramic Matrix Composites

Residual Stress and Distortion – Ceramic Matrix Composites   Now that we have the analysis formulated to address the issues associated with fluid flow, reaction and thermal history the approach can be extended to predict the development of residual stresses and resulting component distortion in the final component. The residual stress generated during processing was

Heat Sink Design

Heat Sink Design   In last month’s Blog we discussed alternative techniques for increasing the amount of heat dissipation in electronic circuits and components. One of the most commonly used approaches to increase heat dissipation is the use of heat sinks. Heat sink design seeks to maximize the surface area in contact with the surrounding
