  • Air jet cooling of brake discs 

    MURRAY, DARINA BRIDGET; TORRANCE, ARCHIBALD ANDREW; MURRAY, DARINA BRIDGET; TORRANCE, ARCHIBALD ANDREW (Institution of Mechanical Engineers, 2008)
    This paper reports on an investigation of a novel approach to the cooling of brake discs, based on the application of impinging air jets. This has the capacity to enhance the heat transfer coefficients at the disc surface ...
  • Case study of an interdisciplinary problem-based engineering design course 

    TORRANCE, ARCHIBALD ANDREW; WEST, ROGER PLUMER; O'KELLY, BRENDAN; BURKE, MARTIN J; BOLAND, FRANCIS MORGAN (2008)
    This paper describes an interdisciplinary problem-based engineering design course taken by about 170 students in the second year of the Bachelor of Engineering degree program at Trinity College Dublin. The course runs ...
  • Characterisation of abrasive particles and surfaces in grinding 

    De Pellegrin, Dennis; TORRANCE, ARCHIBALD ANDREW (2006)
  • Control of Grinding Temperature by High Speed Air Jets 

    TORRANCE, ARCHIBALD ANDREW; MURRAY, DARINA BRIDGET; BABIC, DARKO M. (Bled, 2004)
    Grinding, like other abrasive processes, may generate high local temperatures along the arc of cut. These can cause various forms of surface damage in the most sensitive finishing phase of the manufacturing cycle. Traditional ...
  • Measurement of grinding temperatures using a foil/workpiece thermocouple 

    TORRANCE, ARCHIBALD ANDREW (Elsevier, 2012)
    The high temperature generated in abrasive processes is the main factor responsible for thermal damage to a ground surface. It can be predicted through the thermal balance of the heat fluxes in the process. Such predictions ...
  • Wear of grinding wheels - software for their selection 

    TORRANCE, ARCHIBALD ANDREW (2004)
    An existing model of the grinding process has been upgraded to predict grinding wheel wear as G ratios. It has been successfully benchmarked against experimental results for several combinations of coolant wheel and ...
