    A unified approach towards performance monitoring and condition-based maintenance in grinding machines2020Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The process controller in a precision grinder for bearing rings puts high performance demands on the machine to achieve desired quality in production. This paper presents a unique approach of adding additional sensors for machine condition monitoring for the purpose of learning and using high fidelity condition indicators. The consolidation of real-time sensor data and the process control signals yields high-dimensional dataset. Automatic segmentation helps optimize the amount of data for processing and data mining ahead of fault diagnosis. The proposed setup is state of the art for prognostics as part of condition-based maintenance in a production machine.

    An implementation framework for condition-based maintenance in a bearing ring grinder2022In: Leading manufacturing systems transformation – Proceedings of the 55th CIRP Conference on Manufacturing Systems 2022 / [ed] Emanuele Carpanzano, Claudio Boër, Anna Valente, Elsevier, 2022, Vol. 107, p. 746-751Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The demand on a bearing ring grinder, as any other machine tool, is to produce parts as per the specification and desired quality. A failure to achieve the quality can be due to functional issues or mechanical failure modes. Ultimately this results in lower productivity and higher production costs. Despite the increased emphasis on practicing condition-based machine maintenance (CBM) in manufacturing applications, it is still considered a challenge to fully deploy CBM in production machines due to diversity in equipment and variety in machine configurations as well as complex characteristics of failure modes. Although there exists extensive literature on CBM for machine tools and subsystems, the issue remains with realization of a technically capable and cost effective CBM system, specifically for a bearing ring grinder. Therefore, sensor(s) selection, data acquisition setup, data processing and analysis are the essential factors considered in the proposed framework to ensure a systematic and organized CBM implementation. The CBM setup is evaluated against production of bearing rings under different process and failure conditions. A machine type independent data acquisition system is designed to capture both machine and process dynamics. The data gathered from sensors at strategic locations exhibits its effectiveness in capturing the process and condition variations in relation to time and operating modes. The presented results of data analysis support the capability and effectiveness of the proposed framework. The utility of this framework can be extended for any number of scenarios including predictive maintenance or adaptive process optimization where solutions using machine learning and artificial intelligence tools can benefit from high dimensional structured dataset. The proposed framework provides a strong foundation to fast track the adaption of CBM in other production machines having similar subsystems.

    Integration of process monitoring and machine condition diagnostics to improve quality prediction in grinding2021In: 9th CIRP Conference on High Performance Cutting / [ed] Erdem Ozturk; David Curtis; Hassan Ghadbeigi, Elsevier, 2021, p. 170-173Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Bearing ring grinding incorporates sensors to control the grinding cycle in real time. Prediction of output quality is difficult due to the complex combination of process settings and machine characteristics. Causal relationship of machine performance with varying operating conditions was studied with reference to the produced quality by adding condition monitoring setup to the machine. Data driven diagnostics of machine condition through integration of condition and process monitoring sensor data at the completion of the grinding cycle improves quality cognisance. This can be used to tune control parameters to achieve more predictable quality in successive cycles.

    Dataset Concerning the Process Monitoring and Condition Monitoring Data of a Bearing Ring Grinder2022Data set
    Abstract [en]

    In the manuscript, we have investigated the effective use of sensors in a bearing ring grinder for failure classification in the condition-based maintenance context. The proposed methodology combines domain knowledge of process monitoring and condition monitoring to successfully achieve failure mode prediction with high accuracy using only a few key sensors. This enables manufacturing equipment to take advantage of advanced data processing and machine learning techniques.

    The grinding machine is of type SGB55 from Lidköping Machine Tools and is used to produce functional raceway surface of inner rings of type SKF-6210 deep groove ball bearing. Additional sensors like vibration, acoustic emission, force, and temperature sensors are installed to monitor machine condition while producing bearing components under different operating conditions. Data is sampled from sensors as well as the machine's numerical controller during operation. Selected parts are measured for the produced quality.

    Failure mode classification for condition-based maintenance in a bearing ring grinding machine2022In: The International Journal of Advanced Manufacturing Technology, ISSN 0268-3768, E-ISSN 1433-3015, Vol. 122, p. 1479-1495Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Technical failures in machines are major sources of unplanned downtime in any production and result in reduced efficiency and system reliability. Despite the well-established potential of Machine Learning techniques in condition-based maintenance (CBM), the lack of access to failure data in production machines has limited the development of a holistic approach to address machine-level CBM. This paper presents a practical approach for failure mode prediction using multiple sensors installed in a bearing ring grinder for process control as well as condition monitoring. Bearing rings are produced in a set of 7 experimental runs, including 5 frequently occurring production failures in the critical subsystems. An advanced data acquisition setup, implemented for CBM in the grinder, is used to capture information about each individual grinding cycle. The dataset is pre-processed and segmented into grinding cycle stages before time and frequency domain feature extraction. A sensor ranking algorithm is proposed to optimize feature selection for failure classification and the installation cost. Random forest models, benchmarked as best performing classifiers, are trained in a two-step classification framework. The presence of failure mode is predicted in the first step and the failure mode type is identified in the second step using the same feature set. Defining the feature set in the failure detection step improves the predictor generalization with the classifiers’ performance accuracy of 99%99% on the test dataset. The presented approach demonstrates an efficient failure mode classification by selecting crucial sensors resulting in a cost-effective CBM implementation in a bearing ring grinder.

    Using Multivariate Quality Statistic for Maintenance Decision Support in a Bearing Ring Grinder2022In: Machines, E-ISSN 2075-1702, Vol. 10, no 9, article id 794Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Grinding processes’ stochastic nature poses a challenge in predicting the quality of the resulting surfaces. Post-production measurements for form, surface roughness, and circumferential waviness are commonly performed due to infeasibility in measuring all quality parameters during the grinding operation. Therefore, it is challenging to diagnose the root cause of quality deviations in real-time resulting from variations in the machine’s operating condition. This paper introduces a novel approach to predict the overall quality of the individual parts. The grinder is equipped with sensors to implement condition-based maintenance and is induced with five frequently occurring failure conditions for the experimental test runs. The crucial quality parameters are measured for the produced parts. Fuzzy c-means (FCM) and Hotelling’s T-squared (T2) have been evaluated to generate quality labels from the multi-variate quality data. Benchmarked random forest regression models are trained using fault diagnosis feature set and quality labels. Quality labels from the T2 statistic of quality parameters are preferred over FCM approach for their repeatability. The model, trained from T2 labels achieves more than 94% accuracy when compared to the measured ring disposition. The predicted overall quality using the sensors’ feature set is compared against the threshold to reach a trustworthy maintenance decision.

    Frictional behaviour of CaCO3 powder compacts2012In: Powder Technology, ISSN 0032-5910, E-ISSN 1873-328X, Vol. 228, p. 429-434Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    During powder compaction processes friction has an influence on the final shape and properties of components. It is therefore important to understand how the friction influences the compaction process. Since detailed friction measurements of the powder compact-tool interface are rare, simulation models of the powder compaction process often involve a more accurate description of the frictional behaviour. This limits the accuracy of the simulated results. More accurate numerical models can give improved results, especially in regards to the evolution of density and its distribution within the powder compacts.This study is as a step towards more advanced friction models for powder compaction simulations. A universal tribometer has been used to investigate the frictional behaviour of contact interfaces between a carbide counter surface and CaCO3 powder compacts with different densities. Both static and dynamic frictional properties were measured in a variety of conditions to build a fundamental foundation for friction modelling in powder compaction simulations.The results show that increasing the powder compact density decreases the dynamic friction coefficient but that the static friction coefficient remains fairly constant. The measured friction coefficient can be used to improve the simulation of a powder compact process. Also investigated is the change in friction coefficient that occurs in the compaction process when the surfaces are worn such that loose powder appears in the interface between the tool and the powder compact. This behaviour is important to take into account to accurately describe the compaction process.

    Lubricant ageing effects on the friction characteristics of wet clutches2010In: Proceedings of the Institution of mechanical engineers. Part J, journal of engineering tribology, ISSN 1350-6501, E-ISSN 2041-305X, Vol. 224, no 7, p. 639-647Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The friction characteristics and performance of wet clutches have been investigated by several authors. Studies have also been made to understand the frictional performance during the service life of the clutch system. However, most lifetime studies have been conducted for systems with paper-based friction material so that systems using sintered bronze friction material remain largely unexplored. To study the friction performance of how these systems can vary over time, the friction characteristics for a clutch system using lubricants aged in three different ways were compared. The effects on friction characteristics resulting from oxidation of the lubricant, reduced additive concentration, and ageing under real operating conditions in a wet clutch test rig were studied. The oxidation effects on friction characteristics were examined using a modified waterless turbine oil oxidation stability test on a fully formulated lubricant. Five oxidation time periods from 48 to 408 h were investigated. For each period of oxidation, a friction performance test was run using a pin-on-disc machine. The ageing carried out in a wet clutch test rig is a standard test of a wet clutch systems manufacturer which is used in order to verify that an oil-friction disc combination will last the full service life of the specific application. This test gives a realistic ageing process similar to that in a wet clutch in a field test. Under boundary-lubricated conditions, additives are vital to the performance of wet clutches. Therefore, the effect of reducing the additive concentration in the oil was also studied, in the range of 10 to 100 per cent of the original additive package used in the fully formulated wet clutch lubricant. Results showed that a general friction increase can be observed for oxidation, additive reduction, and test rig ageing. It was also concluded that different methods of simulating the wet clutch ageing process differ and cannot be directly correlated with each other

    Evaluating lifetime performance of limited slip differentials2014In: Lubrication Science, ISSN 0954-0075, E-ISSN 1557-6833, Vol. 26, no 3, p. 189-201Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Extensive research has been performed regarding wet clutch function and performance. Although wet clutches are used in both automatic transmissions and limited slip differentials in cars, most research has been performed for wet clutches incorporated in automatic transmissions. The operating conditions of wet clutches in automatic transmissions differ from the operating conditions of the wet clutches used in limited slip differentials. Therefore, a method and a test bench to use in the investigation of the degradation of limited slip differentials were developed in this work. The typical operating conditions of the limited slip differential and the differences compared with wet clutches incorporated in automatic transmissions were also addressed. Tests performed showed that the developed test bench and method can be used to address differences in frictional response over time for different types of operating condition

    Predicting boundary friction of aging limited slip differentials2014In: Journal of tribology, ISSN 0742-4787, E-ISSN 1528-8897, Vol. 137, no 1, article id 012101Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The prediction of friction is a challenge for scientists and engineers in a wide variety of applications in industry today. One such an application is the limited slip differential. The friction characteristics of the wet clutch are central to the performance of the limited slip differential system. Frictional changes with aging of the limited slip differential affect both the torque transfer accuracy and the tendencies to vibrations and noise generation due to stick-slip or shudder. Therefore, the objective of this work is to establish a method to predict the frictional changes of aging limited slip differential systems. In this study, a number of experiments were performed to establish a method to predict the changes in boundary friction with time due to aging. Accelerated aging was performed for different sets of operating conditions. Results from the tests were used to establish and verify a model to predict friction increase in limited slip differentials. The method assumes that frictional changes with aging are caused by decreased concentrations of friction modifying additives. The decrease in concentration was assumed to depend on the lubricant bulk temperature according to the Arrhenius equation. The model agreed well with tests performed at operating conditions close to the real operating conditions of the limited slip differential. The developed method can be implemented in a vehicle where it can be used to compensate for frictional changes and to indicate when service should be made.

    Wet clutch degradation monitored by lubricant analysis2010In: SAE technical paper series, ISSN 0148-7191, no 2010-01-2232Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the competitive market of the car industry today, companies need to continuously strive to optimize the performance, price and environmental properties of their products in order to survive. Wet clutches, as parts of transmission components of passenger cars are no exception. An understanding of how the wet clutch system functions and fails is necessary to optimize price and service life. The friction characteristics of the wet clutch system are determined by lubricant-surface interactions in the contact between the friction discs. Wet clutch failure can often be associated with the deterioration of friction characteristics which eventually leads to stick-slip or shudder. Consequently, knowledge of why and of how friction characteristics change over time is of the outermost significance to enable the understanding and prediction of wet clutch performance. As the lubricant is an essential component of the wet clutch system, lubricant ageing is a factor of importance. Oxidation, thermal degradation, shearing, additive degradation and water contamination could all be considered to influence lubricant ageing. The aim of this work was therefore to find suitable ways of measuring the remaining useful life of wet clutch lubricants and to correlate changes in friction characteristics with changes in lubricant properties. Both field trials and measurements in a wet clutch test rig were performed. Viscosity, acid number, additive degradation, water contamination, particle content and metal content were measured for the lubricant as it degraded. Particle content results showed a rapid increase early in the ageing process. However, as ageing progressed particle levels actually decreased and this was probably a result of particles slowly grinded between contacting surfaces. On the other hand, metal content increased as ageing progressed, which could indicate slowly progressing wear. Water levels were found to be higher in field trials than in lubricants used in wet clutch test rigs. It is concluded that this was due to the severe and accelerated operating conditions of the wet clutch test rig.

    Prediction of driveline vibrations caused by ageing the limited slip coupling2016In: Proceedings of the Institution of mechanical engineers. Part D, journal of automobile engineering, ISSN 0954-4070, E-ISSN 2041-2991, Vol. 230, no 12, p. 1687-1698Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The prediction of the wet-clutch service life still remains a challenge for scientists and engineers. Previous research has shown the significance of the wet-clutch friction characteristics on the driveline dynamics. To avoid driveline vibrations an increasing friction coefficient with increasing sliding speed is desirable. Consequently, prediction of the occurrence of driveline vibrations relies on a detailed knowledge of how the friction characteristics are affected by wet-clutch degradation, as well as an understanding of the driveline dynamics. Wet clutches are used in both automatic transmissions and all-wheel-drive systems in cars, where they are referred to as limited slip couplings by manufacturers. Wet clutches used in automatic transmissions are subjected to high slip levels, but for very limited time periods. In all-wheel-drive systems, where the limited slip coupling can be used to control the torque transfer to, for example, the rear wheels, the slip levels are low but continuous. Most wet-clutch research has been performed for clutches in automatic transmissions and not for clutches used in all-wheel-drive systems. Thus, a simulation model was developed to evaluate how different operating conditions of the limited slip coupling influence degradation of the friction characteristics and the tendencies towards driveline vibrations. First, the changes in the friction characteristics with the time of ageing are simulated. The friction characteristics after ageing are used as the input to a simplified driveline model, which is used to evaluate the occurrence of vibrations. It is shown how the developed simulation model can be used as an efficient tool for engineers. The developed simulation model can be used to predict how the operating conditions for the limited slip coupling influence degradation of the friction characteristics.

    Towards the true prediction of EHL friction2013In: Tribology International, ISSN 0301-679X, E-ISSN 1879-2464, Vol. 66, p. 19-26Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The capability to predict elastohydrodynamic film-thickness and friction from primary measurements of transport properties of liquid has been an elusive goal for tribologists for 50 years. Most comparisons between predictions and experiments involve some amount of tuning of the model in order to match the experimental results. In true prediction, this cannot be done since there are normally no experimental results to compare to. Primary measurements of lubricant transport properties of Squalane were performed, and used in a numerical friction prediction model. Afterwards, friction was measured in a ball-on-disc tribotester. No tuning of the lubricant properties, model or test setup were applied. The current work on EHL-friction is therefore a true representation of the current level of EHL-friction prediction.

    Friction reduction in elastohydrodynamic contacts by thin-layer thermal insulation2014In: Tribology letters, ISSN 1023-8883, E-ISSN 1573-2711, Vol. 53, no 2, p. 477-486Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Reducing friction is of utmost importance to improve efficiency and lifetime of many products used in our daily lives. Thin hard coatings like diamond-like carbon (DLC) have been shown to reduce friction in full-film-lubricated contacts. In this work, it is shown that contrarily to common belief, the friction reduction stems mainly from a thermal phenomenon and not only a chemical/surface interaction one. It is shown that a few micrometer-thin DLC coating can significantly influence the thermal behavior in a lubricated mechanical system. The presented simulations, validated by experiments, show that applying a thin DLC coating to metal surfaces creates an insulating effect that due to the increased liquid lubricant film temperature at the center of the contact, locally reduces lubricant viscosity and thus friction. The results of the investigation show that the addition of thin insulating layers could lead to substantial performance increases in many applications. On a component level, the contact friction coefficient in some common machine components like gears, rolling element bearings, and cam followers can potentially be reduced by more than 40 %. This will most likely open up the way to new families of coatings with a focus on thermal properties that may be both cheaper and more suitable in certain applications than DLC coatings

    Warm carbon coat reduces friction2014In: Nature, ISSN 0028-0836, E-ISSN 1476-4687, Vol. 505, no 7483, p. 264-Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    A coating material made of carbon reduces friction not just by providing a slippery surface, but also by keeping the points of contact warm. Marcus Björling at Luleå University of Technology in Sweden and his team coated steel balls with ``diamond-like-carbon'' - a material in which carbon atoms have a bonding pattern similar to that of diamond. They rolled the balls against a metal disk with an oil lubricant in between, and showed that the carbon coating acts as an insulator, lowering the viscosity of the lubricant and thus reducing the fricion between the ball and the disk. These findings could encourage the development of lubricant coatings made from insulating materials

    The influence of DLC coating on EHL friction coefficient2012In: Tribology letters, ISSN 1023-8883, E-ISSN 1573-2711, Vol. 47, no 2, p. 285-294Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    High hardness, high elastic modulus, low friction characteristics, high wear and corrosion resistance, chemical inertness, and thermal stability are factors that make diamond-like carbon (DLC) coatings the subject of many studies. For the same reasons they also seem suitable for use in, amongst others, machine components and cutting tools. While most studies in the literature focus on the influence of coatings on wear and friction in boundary lubrication and pure sliding contacts, few studies can be found concerning rolling and sliding elastohydrodynamic lubrication (EHL) friction, especially in the mixed and full film regime. In this article tests are carried out in a Wedeven Associates Machine tribotester where an uncoated ball and disc pair is compared to the case of coated ball against uncoated disc, coated disc against uncoated ball, and coated disc against coated ball. The tests are conducted at two different temperatures and over a broad range of slide-to-roll ratios and entrainment speeds. The results are presented as friction maps as introduced in previous work (Björling et al. in J Eng Tribol 225(7):671, 2011). Furthermore a numerical simulation model is developed to investigate if there is a possibility that the hard, thin DLC coating is affecting the friction coefficient in an EHL contact due to thermal effects caused by the different thermal properties of the coating compared to the substrate. The experimental results show a reduction in friction coefficient in the full film regime when DLC-coated surfaces are used. The biggest reduction is found when both surfaces are coated, followed by the case when either ball or disc is coated. The thermal simulation model shows a substantial increase of the lubricant film temperature compared to uncoated surfaces when both surfaces are coated with DLC. The reduction in friction coefficient when coating either only the ball or the disc are almost the same, lower than when coating both the surfaces but still higher than the uncoated case. The findings above indicate that it is reasonable to conclude that thermal effects are a likely cause for the decrease in coefficient of friction when operating under full film conditions, and in the mixed lubrication regime when DLC-coated surfaces are used

    The effect of DLC coating thickness on elstohydrodynamic friction2014In: Tribology letters, ISSN 1023-8883, E-ISSN 1573-2711, Vol. 55, no 2, p. 353-362Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The application of surface coatings has been shown to reduce friction in elastohydrodynamic lubrication (EHL), not only in the mixed and boundary regime when asperity interactions occur, but also in the full film regime. Several studies suggest that the full film friction reduction is due to a violation of the no-slip boundary condition and thus slip is taking place between the solid and the liquid. Another hypothesis proposes that the full film friction reduction is due to the low thermal conductivity of diamond-like carbon (DLC) coatings. In this work, two DLC coatings with the same composition, but different thicknesses, are investigated with uncoated steel specimens as a reference, all with the same surface roughness. Friction tests in a ball-on-disk machine show that both coatings reduce friction compared to the uncoated reference case in full film EHL. The thicker coating is significantly more effective at reducing friction than the thinner one at a maximum friction reduction of 41 % compared to 29 % for the thinner coating. Moreover, contact angle measurements, surface energy measurements, and spreading parameter calculations show no statistically significant differences between the two coatings, suggesting that the friction reduction capabilities of coatings in full film EHL cannot be described by solid-liquid interactions alone. The difference in friction reduction between the specimens in this work is mainly attributed to different thermal properties.

    Abstract [en]

    A friction test is conducted in a WAM ball on disc test rig. The output from the test is friction coefficient versus entrainment speed and slide-to-roll ratio presented as a 3D friction map. A number of parameters are varied while studying the friction coefficient; surface roughness, base oil viscosity and EP additive package. Entrainment speed, slide to roll ratio and oil temperature are also varied. The results show that the mapping is efficient in showing the different types of friction that may occur in an EHL contact. The results also show that the friction behaviour can be strongly influenced by changing surface roughness as well as base oil viscosity, EP additive content and operating temperature.

    A friction test is conducted in a Wedeven Associates Machine ball-on-disc test rig. The output from the test, friction coefficient versus entrainment speed and slide-to-roll ratio (SRR), is presented as a three-dimensional friction map. A number of parameters are varied while studying the friction coefficient; surface roughness, base oil viscosity, base oil type, and extreme pressure (EP) additive package. Entrainment speed, SRR, and oil temperature are also varied. The results show that the mapping is efficient in showing the different types of friction that may occur in an elasto-hydrodynamic lubrication contact. The results also show that the friction behaviour can be strongly influenced by changing surface roughness as well as base oil viscosity, base oil type, EP additive content, and operating temperature.

    The correlation between gear contact friction and ball on disc friction measurements2015In: Tribology International, ISSN 0301-679X, E-ISSN 1879-2464, Vol. 83, p. 114-119Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Running experiments with full-size gearboxes from the actual application has the advantage of giving realistic results in terms of power losses. The drawback is extensive costs, lengthy testing, and the difficulty in differentiating between load dependent and load independent losses, and which losses are coming from the gears, seals, bearings or synchronizers. In this work, the correlation between friction measurements conducted in a ball-on-disc machine and friction measurements conducted in a back-to-back gear rig is investigated. The correlation between the gear tests and the ball-on-disc tests were reasonably good in terms of absolute values, and the shape of the friction curves were similar, indicating that the ball-on-disc measurements to a large extent are capturing the behavior of the gear contact

    Novel Intrinsic Self-Healing Poly-Silicone-Urea with Super-Low Ice Adhesion Strength2022In: Small, ISSN 1613-6810, E-ISSN 1613-6829, Vol. 18, no 22, article id 2200532Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Accumulation of snow and ice often causes problems and even dangerous situations for both industry and the general population. Passive de-icing technologies, e.g., hydrophobic, liquid-infused bionic surfaces, have attracted more and more attention compared with active de-icing technologies, e.g., electric heating, hot air heating, due to the passive de-icing technology's lower energy consumption and sustainability footprint. Using passive de-icing coatings seems to be one of the most promising solutions. However, the previously reported de-icing coatings suffer from high ice adhesion strength or short service life caused by wear. An intrinsic self-healing material based on poly-silicone-urea is developed in this work to address these problems. The material is prepared by introducing dynamic disulfide bonds into the hard phase of the polymer. Experimental results indicate that this poly-silicone-urea has a self-healing efficiency of close to 99%. More interestingly, it is found that the coating prepared from this poly-silicone-urea has a super low ice adhesion force, only 7 ± 1 kPa, which is almost the lowest value compared with previous intrinsic self-healing de-/anti-icing reports. This material can maintain low ice adhesion strength after healing. This intrinsic self-healing poly-silicone-urea can meet several practical applications, opening the door for future sustainable anti-/de-icing technologies.

    In-situ polymerized siloxane urea enhanced graphene-based super-fast, durable, all-weather elec-photo-thermal anti-/de-icing coating2023In: Journal of Science: Advanced Materials and Devices, ISSN 2468-2284, Vol. 8, no 3, article id 100604Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Previous investigations on anti-/de-icing techniques have primarily focused on mild laboratory conditions, which have limited practical applicability due to their short service life. Consequently, there is an urgent demand for the development of durable anti-/de-icing technologies capable of withstanding complex environmental conditions. In this research endeavour, we have successfully formulated a hydrophobic coating based on graphene. To circumvent the challenges associated with environmentally unfriendly organic solvents, we utilized a graphene water slurry as the foundational material and subsequently incorporated a poly (vinyl alcohol)-water solution. The resulting solution was subjected to in situ polymerization of a siloxane urea crosslinked polymer, yielding the desired coating solution. Following a solution spraying and drying process, the ultimate product obtained was the hydrophobic conductive graphene (HCG) siloxane Coating. The HCG siloxane Coating exhibits a conductivity of 66 S/m, enabling it to melt ice droplets within a mere 10 s, whereas conventional coatings require 20–500 s for the same task. A comprehensive field test conducted during an entire winter period on a high mountain situated within the Arctic Circle in Finland demonstrated the excellent anti-icing properties of the developed coating when subjected to approximately 310 W/m2 power. Furthermore, the coating exhibited satisfactory de-icing performance under approximately 570 W/m2 power, successfully removing ice accumulations within approximately 10 min. Throughout the field test, temperatures frequently plummeted to −20 °C, accompanied by wind speeds reaching up to 12 m/s. Material characterization revealed that the micro-nano structure of the coating surface, which engenders favourable hydrophobic behaviour, was primarily attributed to the phase separation resulting from hydrophilic and hydrophobic interactions. Moreover, the semi-interpenetrating structure formed by the polyvinyl alcohol molecular chains and in-situ polymerized siloxane urea ensured the coating's strength.

    Mixing Grease with Water2015Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to convey a simple and effective method to mix water with grease and verify the homogeneity of the mixture using Karl-Fischer (KF) titration as the analysis tool. This is required to better develop a future water in grease sensor for on-line condition monitoring. This paper will also attempt to investigate how well KF titration functions as a tool for measuring water content in grease. Additional investigations include how the water content varies with time in grease samples open to atmosphere at different temperature. This research verifies a simple grease mixing method and investigates the water transport in water contaminated grease samples.

    The temperature dependence on the dielectric properties of water-contaminated grease is investigated in this article. The purpose of this investigation was to identify the dielectric properties that could be measured to differentiate varying levels of water contamination in calcium sulfonate complex (CaS-X) grease with three different test cells with the purpose of eventually developing a grease condition sensor. Measuring the change in dielectric constant over a small temperature change yielded useful estimations of water content and amount of grease where the added water content ranged from 0.22% to about 5.5%. Additionally, other parameters such as incomplete fill/coverage of the sensors were investigated as a prestudy. The results from this set of experiments show that the measurement has potential to be developed into a condition monitoring sensor in the future.

    Optical Attenuation Characterization of Water Contaminated Lubricating Grease2018In: Tribology Transactions, ISSN 1040-2004, E-ISSN 1547-397X, Vol. 61, no 4, p. 726-732Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Water-contaminated grease samples are investigated with attenuation spectra in the visible and near-infrared (NIR) regions in this article. The purpose of this investigation was to identify a model with optical attenuation spectra such that the water content of grease samples could be characterized with a simple measurement setup using common methodology from the field of instrumental chemistry. The ratio between two chosen wavelengths of light appears to approximate the water content of grease samples with an acceptable coefficient of determination using a methodology to show what can potentially be done to develop condition monitoring tools. To illustrate the outlined method, a prestudy of grease aging and oxidation levels is also investigated to show that other variables do not significantly change the measurement.

    Degradation Mechanism of Automatic Transmission Fluid by Water as a Contaminant2015In: Proceedings of the Institution of mechanical engineers. Part J, journal of engineering tribology, ISSN 1350-6501, E-ISSN 2041-305X, Vol. 229, no 1, p. 74-85Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The degradation mechanism of water contaminated Automatic Transmission Fluids (ATF) was experimentally investigated. Water contaminated ATF was tribotested in a full-scale wet clutch test rig to monitor the friction durability during clutch ageing, and was also statically aged in oven to evaluate the interaction of ATF with water. The bulk properties and chemical nature of the ATF were analysed using viscosity measurements, Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) and Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA). It was shown that water presence in the ATF can increase the mean friction coefficient over a short time period, though in the long term perspective there is a higher loss of mean friction. Phase separation of the water-in-oil emulsion by centrifugation at 20000 rpm made it possible to examine the water phase using infrared 2spectroscopy. The spectroscopic analysis revealed the hydrophilic nature of certain ATF constituents, although the impact of water on the bulk properties like lubricant viscosity and thermal stability was insignificant. The analysis of the tribotests showed that the friction increase for water contamination was a short-term effect and likely due to the interaction between polar surface active additives and water. Even though no significant change has been found for thermal degradation or in bulk properties of the lubricant, the initially changed action of the water soluble additives and generation of high friction resulted in a total deterioration of the clutch performance during long term use.

    Influence of clutch output shaft inertia and stiffness on the performance of the wet clutch2013In: Tribology Transactions, ISSN 1040-2004, E-ISSN 1547-397X, Vol. 56, no 2, p. 310-319Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Being a part of the complex mass, spring and damper system in a driveline, the choice of design factors like, output shaft stiffness and inertia of a wet clutch system can influence its performance. The effects of these parameters are experimentally evaluated in this paper. Widely used commercial paper based friction plates with standard steel reaction plates are tested with four different stiffness and inertia combinations in a recently developed wet clutch test rig. A low inertia system in general showed a faster degradation and shorter clutch life for high torsional oscillation. Besides the system becomes more shudder sensitive for lower natural frequency in case of less stiff system. The less stiff output shaft with low inertia showed the highest shudder tendency among the four conditions. The differences in performance for different output shaft conditions become noticeable for numerous clutch engagements or a degraded system. The effect of different shaft design conditions is also illuminated in the topographical analysis of the separators’ surfaces and morphological study of frictional surfaces. This study reveals the influence of both inertia and stiffness not only on shudder sensitivity of the system but also on the clutch frictional performance as well as the overall clutch life.

    Study on the wet clutch friction interfaces for humid lubrication condition2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The friction influencing parameters also influence the wet clutch sliding surface conditions. The tribofilm formations as well as the chemical and mechanical degradation for frictional interfaces can be different for the choice of the lubricant conditions. The present investigations revealed the effects of water contamination in automatic transmission fluid (ATF) not only on the frictional performance, but also on the friction interfaces. The surface profiles of the tested separator plates, the EDS-SEM (Scanning Electron Microscopy-Energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy) analysis of the friction interfaces and optical microscopy for the used friction liners showed the difference in surface morphology, adsorption of additive elements, permeability and porosity for a humid clutch environment.

    Water contamination effect in wet clutch system2013In: Proceedings of the Institution of mechanical engineers. Part D, journal of automobile engineering, ISSN 0954-4070, E-ISSN 2041-2991, Vol. 227, no 3, p. 376-389Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Water contamination in wet clutch systems can be a problem since both torque characteristics and wear resistance can be influenced by water presence. The present paper reveals the effect of externally added water on the wet clutch frictional performance. Commercially available standard paper based friction plates and steel separator plates lubricated in commercially available automatic transmission fluid were investigated in a recently developed automated test rig implementing a well confined experimental approach. Frictional response was observed for three different situations with different water amount and water exposure time. There is observed undesirable friction increase with increasing water amount in the system. The rate of increase in friction coefficient does not linearly depend on the amount of added water and this is a noticeable outcome from the common possible water contamination effects like change in lubricant viscosity, inadequate additive performance and weakening of friction material. The more reduced separator plates’ surface roughness (Ra) in a water contaminated clutch system compared to an uncontaminated one can be a reason for the change in friction. It is also shown that different water exposure time has no large impact on the change in friction level and separator plate’s roughness.

    Wet Clutch Friction Interfaces under Water Contaminated Lubricant Conditions2016In: Tribology Transactions, ISSN 1040-2004, E-ISSN 1547-397X, Vol. 59, no 3, p. 441-450Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The performance of wet clutches used for automatic transmissions or other applications usually includes the desired positive friction characteristics and a shudder-free torque generation. Changes in the operating variables such as the lubricant conditions influence the formation of tribofilm, friction characteristics and can alter the degradation of the friction interfaces. In this work, the friction characteristics and degradation of the paper-steel friction interfaces were monitored when a commercial fully-formulated automatic transmission fluid (ATF) was contaminated with water. It was found that water in ATF influenced the clutch stability by increasing the mean coefficient of friction (µ) and the negative friction-velocity slope. Surface studies of the post-test friction interfaces clearly indicated reduced surface porosity and permeability, increased wettability and changed elemental composition on the contacting surfaces after tested with water- contaminated ATF. Moreover, water-contaminated paper-liners’ thermal decomposition shifted to a lower temperature compared to an uncontaminated liner during thermal analyses. These results displayed faster degradation and reduced service life of the clutch friction interfaces for water contamination. The resultant surface condition can be associated with the observed unstable friction and negative friction-velocity slopes.

    Influence of water on the tribological properties of zinc dialkyl-dithiophosphate and over-based calcium sulfonate additives in wet clutch contacts2015In: Tribology International, ISSN 0301-679X, E-ISSN 1879-2464, Vol. 87, p. 113-120Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Usually the wet clutch lubricant properties vary with different formulations of base oil types and additives. The aim of this paper was to evaluate the effect of water on the performance of additives in ATF. Simplified lubricants, ZDDP and over-based Ca-sulfonates detergent additives in an API Group I mineral base oil, were employed to compare with the commercial fully-formulated automatic transmission fluid (DEXRON®VI) during water-contamination. A full-scale wet clutch test rig was used to evaluate the frictional response due to water contamination of the lubricants. Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy was utilized to evaluate the variation in the solubility of these polar organic additives in the water phase and Karl-Fischer titration was utilized to evaluate the post-test water content for different formulations.

    Adsorption of ATF additives on wet clutch friction interfaces under water contaminated lubricant conditions2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Stable friction and positive slope of friction-speed is the typical criterion for a good clutch performance. Lubricated friction interfaces used for wet clutches produces different friction behavior depending on the lubricant conditions. Usually the lubricant conditions vary for different automatic transmission fluid (ATF) formulations implying e.g. water contamination and these conditions might influence the deterioration of the clutch plates. The aim of this paper is to verify additive adsorption on friction interfaces and ageing of the friction material in wet clutch system for a water contaminated commercial ATF (DEXRON® VI). Standard clutch plates are employed in an automated wet clutch test rig to evaluate the friction characteristics of the tested lubricant. For controlled test conditions (speed, contact pressure, oil temperature) and specific number of test cycles, the mean friction coefficient and the friction vs. speed relations are monitored during sliding test. The resultant tribofilms on the tested friction interface surfaces are characterized by means of Scanning Electron Microscopy-Energy Dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (SEM- EDS), Attenuated Total Reflectance -Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (ATR-FTIR) and X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS analysis). The spectroscopic techniques were used to analyse adsorbed additives on friction interfaces and made it possible to correlate measured data to the specific friction behavior obtained after water contamination of the ATF.

    Surface chemistry of wet clutch influenced by water contamination in automatic transmission fluids2016In: Tribology International, ISSN 0301-679X, E-ISSN 1879-2464, Vol. 96, p. 395-401Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Lubricated friction interfaces used for wet clutches produces different friction behaviour depending on the lubricant conditions. Usually the lubricant conditions vary for water contamination in automatic transmission fluid (ATF). The presence of water retards the ATF performance by increasing the friction and can influence the deterioration of the clutch plates. Water as a polar contaminant can change the absorbability of the surface active additives, which might cause the characteristic friction behaviour. The aim of this paper is to verify the surface chemistry of tribotested standard friction interfaces lubricated with water contaminated commercial ATF (DEXRON® VI). The evidences of the influence of water on ATF performances were shown by surface analyses

    Determination of bulk properties and fracture data for iron ore pellets using instrumented confined compression experiments2013In: Powder Technology, ISSN 0032-5910, E-ISSN 1873-328X, Vol. 241, p. 19-27Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this work, an experimental method for measuring the bulk properties and fracture loading relations for iron ore pellets is presented. Knowledge on the bulk behaviour and fracture data for iron ore pellets is of great importance for improving the material transportation systems and to increase the product quality. Trustworthy numerical simulations of iron ore pellets also demand reliable materials data for the models. Here, instrumented confined compression tests are carried out at different load levels. Measurement data of the axial and radial stresses and the axial displacement are recorded for each test. Measurements of fractured iron ore pellets are carried out at different loads giving rise to crushing up to 20% of the total material. From the measured data, the Poisson´s ratio, the bulk modulus and a plastic strain hardening function are determined. In addition, friction measurements of iron ore pellets are carried out at different loads and configurations. In conclusion, the test method developed here is usable for the determination of the bulk properties and fracture characteristics of iron ore pellets.

    Analysis of Vibration Signals of Drivetrain Failures in Wind Turbines for Condition Monitoring2021In: Experimental techniques (Westport, Conn.), ISSN 0732-8818, E-ISSN 1747-1567, Vol. 45, no 1, p. 1-12Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the last years, the wind industry has increased in a large scale. A wind turbine out of service leeds to high costs due to both maintenance and repair costs and the incapability of producing electricity. A substantial part of the wind turbine failures are in the drivetrain, mainly in generator and gearbox. Several recent works focuses in the study of benefits of the integration of condition monitoring with current maintenance techniques, that would drive to the reduction of costs. For condition monitoring, vibration analysis has been widely accepted as the technique that gives most information about faults in a rotating machine, thus vibration sensors are often used in wind turbine applications. In this work, data from several vibration sensors installed in 18 wind turbines in cold climate were analysed using the Wavelet Packets Transform energy. Signals were acquired for more than four years (from 2011 to 2015), registering failures in gearboxes and generators of the wind turbines. Data were obtained under varying conditions of load and speed as well as varying weather conditions. Signals were analysed with the aim of finding parameters that indicate the presence of a fault. This would be useful to predict a failure with enough time to plan a stop of the wind turbine in the proper moment for similar faults in the future.

    Elastohydrodynamic lubrication for the finite line contact under transient loading conditions2018In: Tribology International, ISSN 0301-679X, E-ISSN 1879-2464, Vol. 127, p. 489-499Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Research related to elastohydrodynamic lubrication (EHL) has led to improved performance and durability of machine elements where non-conformal contact geometries interact. Only a relatively small portion of the EHL literature has, however, dealt with the lubricating performance of finite line contacts under non-steady conditions, commonly found in many practical applications. The purpose of this work has thus been to further understand the behaviour of finite line EHL contacts under transient conditions by studying a finite length roller subjected to a time varying load using a full-system finite element approach. The transient load was shown to initiate oscillations in the system, governed by waves of lubricant moving through the contact, affecting both pressure and film thickness throughout the contact.
