In this paper, we propose a highly non-linear mathematical expression for characterising the flow behaviour of partially dense P/M materials during the case of simple upsetting – compression test, taking functional dependence of strain hardening index on a matrix strain and yield matrix (of partially dense material) on a mixed combination of matrix strain and strain sensitivity into account. Equivalent flow stress of matrix is considered to be a function of relative density, matrix strain and strain rate sensitivity parameters. A new parallel Runge-Kutta-fifth order algorithm with adaptive step-size control has been proposed for numerical integration of the resultant mathematical expression to compute the value of yield stress of partially dense P/M porous materials. Furthermore, a modest effort has been made to bring out the effectiveness of the adaptive step-size control. Numerical results show that the proposed parallel Runge-Kutta-fifth order algorithm with the adaptive step-size control increases the computational speed by more than eight times in an interval when solving the highly non-linear prevailing equation in comparison with the above algorithm with the fixed constant step-size.

Could incinerating the plastic mountain be an answer?
Energy from waste has its appeal China’s decision to ban its recycling operations for foreign plastics has suddenly caused a massive problem for the UK government. Up until recently, Britain has been shipping up to 500,000 tonnes of plastic for recycling in China every year, which is about 25% of our total plastics waste. Now that trade has ceased and already the problem is piling up … and is getting bigger by the day. Alternative solutions have to be found very quickly and one of the recycling...
Plastic recycling pyrolysis plant
Plastic waste can be seen everywhere in our daily life and it brings about serious pollution problem. But on the other hand, it is also a kind of precious potential resource and it is meaningful to dispose waste plastics in an effective method. To grasp the great business opportunity, Doing group has successfully developed the new design waste plastic recycling pyrolysis plant . The waste plastic recycling pyrolysis plant can convert the plastic waste to energy, such as plastic pyrolysis oil, carbon black and...

Plastic Contaminates 94% of U.S. Tap Water
After a thorough investigation Orb Media has released the findings of their study regarding plastic fiber contamination in drinking water. According to the results, a staggering 94% of the tap water in the United States is contaminated with plastic fibers. The United States had the highest contamination rate of any country that was analyzed for the study. For comparison, France had the lowest plastic contamination rate at 72%. This is still an extremely high rate; overall, 83% of all samples that were tested...
