    Article
    Open Access
    This paper focuses on a resonant system used to induce a low-amplitude movement and ultrasonic frequency to complement a ball burnishing process on a lathe. The system was characterized through the combination of different ...
  • Improvement of phosphate adsorption kinetics onto ferric hydroxide by size reduction 

    Martí Gregorio, Vicenç; Jubany Güell, Irene; Benito Páramo, José Antonio (2021-05-31)
    Article
    Open Access
    Ball milling and ultra-sonication size reduction procedures were applied to granular ferric hydroxide (GFH) to obtain two micro-sized adsorbents. These two adsorbents and GFH were investigated to improve the removal of ...
  • Heat treatment design for a QP steel: effect of partitioning temperature 

    Carpio Garza, Marcel Francisco; Calvo Muñoz, Jessica; Cabrera Marrero, José M. (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2021-07-19)
    Article
    Open Access
    Designing a new family of advanced high-strength steels (AHSSs) to develop automotive parts that cover early industry needs is the aim of many investigations. One of the candidates in the 3rd family of AHSS are the quenching ...
