88mm Flak by John Norris, Mike Fuller

By John Norris, Mike Fuller

The German 88 mm was once through a long way the main well-known and flexible artillery weapon of global conflict II. It was once first used as an anti-aircraft weapon by way of the Condor Legion in the course of the Spanish Civil warfare and observed additional carrier within the German invasions of Poland and France, the place it was once first utilized in its anti-tank function. This function used to be quite profitable and the 88 turned feared through tank crews from North Africa to Russia. except those major roles the 88 mm used to be used because the major weapon on late-war German tanks, as a self-propelled gun, or even as an aerial weapon. This publication covers these kinds of variations, explaining their layout, improvement and operational use.

Due to the low operating temperature ~60-150 oC, the Pt based catalysts are sensitive to poisoning. Since CO is formed during electro-oxidation of methanol, CO-tolerant catalysts are used for DMFCs. Nevertheless, these have a much lower power density despite the typically high noble metal loading of the electrodes. In addition, the energy efficiency of DMFCs suffers from high electrode over-potential (voltage losses), and from methanol losses by transfer (by permeation) through the membrane used in DMFCs [77-80].

Whilst, lower impact energy Regenerative Heat Treatment of Low Alloy Cast Steel 35 of the cast steel with mixed bainitic – ferritic structure results from the presence of ferrite in the microstructure, which favours the fissile cracking, and from the presence of upper bainite, characterized by greater brittleness than lower bainite. Full annealing allows to obtain ferritic – pearlitic microstructure for the examined cast steel grade (Fig. 13d), with pearlite located mostly on ferrite grain boundaries.
