Measuring the stress, strain and strain-rate in heat treated medium carbon steel samples and finding the constituted material related properties

Mechanical failure of component parts as well as in build up structures can be prevented if proper quality control is carried out at point of component’s manufacture. Engineers are known to analyze samples from which accurate predictions are made about the properties of the materials that are produced for the purpose of component and structural processing. This work had produced and tested heat treated 1030 steel...

Principal component procedure in factor analysis and robustness

Principal component procedure has been widely used in factor analysis as a data reduction procedure. The estimation of the covariance and correlation matrix in factor analysis using principal component procedure is strongly influenced by outliers. This study investigates the robustness of principal component procedure in factor analysis by generating random variables from five different distributions which are used to...
