Open Access research which pushes advances in bionanotechnology

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS) , based within the Faculty of Science.

SIPBS is a major research centre in Scotland focusing on 'new medicines', 'better medicines' and 'better use of medicines'. This includes the exploration of nanoparticles and nanomedicines within the wider research agenda of bionanotechnology, in which the tools of nanotechnology are applied to solve biological problems. At SIPBS multidisciplinary approaches are also pursued to improve bioscience understanding of novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions and the investigation, development and manufacture of drug substances and products.

Computer-aided design of nett-forming by injection forging of engineering components

Methodology and supporting techniques for design are developed with a view to defining a design and analysis system for nett-forming by injection forging. Processes and components were classified with reference to the method of injection, billet geometry, constraint to the billet and auxiliary media. FE simulation approaches were developed to predict flow-dependent flaws; the identified flaws were classified with reference to the mechanism of initiation of the flaws. Using these classifications, forming configurations, parameters and tools are either selected for the specified component by referring to the forming of similar products or designed by using proposed procedures; these procedures enable the design of forming operations to achieve flawless, high-precision products.
