    In this paper, we have developed a physical model to predict the forces of the ball burnishing. The models have been constructed on the basis of the plasticity theory. During the model development we have figured out the ...
  • Effect of electropulses on the machinability of a C45E steel 

    Montilla Montaña, Carlos; Kallewaard, Valentina; González Rojas, Hernan Alberto (2019-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    This article compares the machinability of a C45E (AISI/SAE 1045) steel type under two different manufacturing processes: conventional machining and pulsed current assisted machining. The testing procedure consisted on the ...
  • Electromagnetic evaluation of an in-wheel double rotor axial-flux switched reluctance motor for electric traction

  • Machinability estimation by drilling monitoring 

    González Rojas, Hernan Alberto; Nápoles Alberro, Amelia; Sánchez Egea, Antonio José (2018-07-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    This article describes the development of a methodology to measure the specific cutting energy (SCE) in drilling. The SCE allows to characterize the machining process, thus obtaining a technologic approach to plan the ...
  • Electropulsing effects on mechanical and metallurgical behavior of AISI-SAE 4140 steel 

    Montilla Montaña, Carlos A.; González Rojas, Hernan Alberto; Higuera Cobos, Oscar Fabián; Kallewaard, Valentina; Sánchez Egea, Antonio J (2018-10-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    The electroplasticity phenomenon (EP) produces changes in the mechanical properties of a metal, due to the simultaneous application of mechanical stresses of compression, bending, etc., and high instantaneous current pulses. ...
  • Permanent magnet synchronous motor with different rotor structures for traction motor in high speed trains 

    Torrent Burgués, Marcel; Perat Benavides, Josep Ignasi; Jiménez, José Antonio (2018-06-13)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this work we proposed to study the use of permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM) for railway traction in the high-speed trains (HST) of Renfe Operadora (the Spanish national railway operator). Currently, induction ...
  • Influence of the regime of electropulsing-assisted machining on the plastic deformation of the layer being cut 

    Hameed, Saqib; González Rojas, Hernan Alberto; Perat Benavides, Josep Ignasi; Nápoles Alberro, Amelia; Sánchez Egea, Antonio J (2018-05-25)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this article, the influence of electropulsing on the machinability of steel S235 and aluminium 6060 has been studied during conventional and electropulsing-assisted turning processes. The machinability indices such as ...
