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.

Plastic Pails and Their Different Tops
Pails are typically defined as being containers in which the person can carry with one hand. While they are designed with one-hand in mind, the quality of contents within can sometimes vary regarding necessary strength. With pail being made with versatility in mind (.6 gallon to 6.5 gallons has quite a difference) so do the lids that go on top. There are two main types of pails, open head, and closed head. They are similar to other containers in that they share very similar characteristics, they can be made of...
Plastic Open Head Drums VS Tight Head Drums
When you are buying plastic drums, you are often going to run into the choice of plastic open head drums or tight head drums. While the differences might seem small, they can mean a world of difference for your business. For some, the answer is a no-brainer because the materials they are used to package will require sealing, in which the tight head is naturally for liquids, but open head drums and tight head drums deserve to be fully explored. Plastic Open Head Drums or Tight Head Drums Reusability – The...

CANDI Plastic opts for new QR-class for material recycling
First real-life application for the UNTHA QR-class: In July this year,CANDI Plastic Recyclingbegan using aQR1700 shredderfor theshredding of plastics. The company is located in southern Austria and specialises in the collection and treatment of non-hazardous waste. Several features proved this high-performance UNTHA single-shaft shredder was the best-fit machine for the brief, such as its versatility, low energy consumption and multi-functional flap. Extensive know-how in material shreddingThe production of...
Plastics recycling industry ‘Wish List’ for a rapid transition to a Circular Economy
The producers of automobiles and electronics across Europe have been given the responsibility for the end-of-life capture, collection and recycling or recovery of the products that they put on the market. Under this Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) legislation the focus is placed upon ‘polluter pays’ by making branded manufacturers and importers share the financial burden of the cost of collection and recycling. The current legislative measures have already placed high and ambitious targets on...
