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.

The definition of the form-errors of component in nett-forging required the analysis of error generation by considering both thermal and mechanical factors in the forging. To-date, however, most of the analyses have only referred to a single manufacturing cycle. Since forging productions are largely multi-cycle operations, component form-errors can vary with the manufacturing cycle. Using a developed procedure, the temperature change in the die during multi-cycle forward extrusion operations was computed. The computed temperature distributions in the die were then used for initiating the analysis of component form-errors for given manufacturing cycles. The analysis refers to forward extrusion for both single solid die- and compound die-set-configurations.
