First‐Principles Study, Fabrication, And Characterization Of (Hf0.2zr0.2ta0.2nb0.2ti0.2)C High‐Entropy Ceramic, Beilin Ye, Tongqi Wen, Kehan Huang, Cai-Zhuang Wang, Yanhui Chu Jul 2019

First‐Principles Study, Fabrication, And Characterization Of (Hf0.2zr0.2ta0.2nb0.2ti0.2)C High‐Entropy Ceramic, Beilin Ye, Tongqi Wen, Kehan Huang, Cai-Zhuang Wang, Yanhui Chu

Ames Laboratory Accepted Manuscripts

The formation possibility of (Hf0.2Zr0.2Ta0.2Nb0.2Ti0.2)C high‐entropy ceramic (HHC‐1) was first analyzed by the first‐principles calculations, and then, it was successfully fabricated by hot‐pressing sintering technique at 2073 K under a pressure of 30 MPa. The first‐principles calculation results showed that the mixing enthalpy and mixing entropy of HHC‐1 were −0.869 ± 0.290 kJ/mol and 0.805R, respectively. The experimental results showed that the as‐prepared HHC‐1 not only had an interesting single rock‐salt crystal structure of metal carbides but also possessed high compositional uniformity ...

Friction stir welding is a method of materials processing that enables the joining of similar and dissimilar materials. The process, as originally designed by The Welding Institute (TWI), provides a unique approach to manufacturing—where materials can be joined in many designs and still retain mechanical properties that are similar to, or greater than, other forms of welding. This process is not free of defects that can alter, limit, and occasionally render the resulting weld unusable. Most common amongst these defects are kissing bonds, wormholes and cracks that are often hidden from visual inspection. To identify these defects, various nondestructive ...

A Study On Ultrasonic Energy Assisted Metal Processing : Its Correeltion With Microstructure And Properties, And Its Application To Additive Manufacturing., Anagh Deshpande

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Additive manufacturing or 3d printing is the process of constructing a 3-dimensional object layer-by-layer. This additive approach to manufacturing has enabled fabrication of complex components directly from a computer model (or a CAD model). The process has now matured from its earlier version of being a rapid prototyping tool to a technology that can fabricate service-ready components. Development of low-cost polymer additive manufacturing printers enabled by open source Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) printers and printers of other technologies like SLA and binder jetting has made polymer additive manufacturing accessible and affordable. But the metal additive manufacturing technologies are still expensive ...


Influence Of Mechanical Properties Of Paper Coating On The Crack At The Fold Problem, Seyyed Mohammad Hashemi Najafi May 2019

Influence Of Mechanical Properties Of Paper Coating On The Crack At The Fold Problem, Seyyed Mohammad Hashemi Najafi

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Paper coating layers are subject to various stresses and deformations in many converting processes such as calendering, printing, slitting, and folding of the paper. In some cases, products may crack during folding to generate a defect called cracking at the fold (CAF). The parameters that influence these defects are not well understood. The overall goal of this thesis is to better understand the CAF behavior as related to material properties of the coating layer.

A method was developed to produce free-standing pigmented coating layers thick enough to be tested in bending as well as tension. The mechanical properties of these ...


Development Of Stage-I Tempered High Strength Cast Steel For Ground Engaging Tools, Viraj Ashok Athavale Jan 2019

Development Of Stage-I Tempered High Strength Cast Steel For Ground Engaging Tools, Viraj Ashok Athavale

Doctoral Dissertations

"Ground Engaging Tools (GET) are the expendable replacement parts used in heavy machinery used with mining or construction equipment. GET’s protect the expensive machine components from the wear and tear found common in high-impact or high-abrasion environments. The goal of this project is to develop advanced next-generation alloy choices that outperforms the existing GET materials. A method of predicting tempered hardness of mixed microstructures was formulated. Using this model, two alloy series viz. Cr-Ni-Mo and Mn-Si-Mo-V were proposed and experimented with the goal of obtaining a high strength and impact resistant cast steel. Cast iterations of Cr-Ni-Mo alloy series ...
