This study has focused on the influence of size and content of SiC particle incorporation on the wetting behavior of the Ticusil brazing filler alloy and on its brazing performance in C/SiC composite/Ti6Al4V alloy joints. The effect of the size and content of additive SiC particles on the variation of molten brazing filler alloy contact angle was recorded at various brazing time and temperatures. Moreover, the microstructural evolution and mechanical properties of the additive containing C/SiC composite/Ti6Al4V alloy joints produced by the brazing method were investigated. The contact angles in both brazing filler alloys containing nano- and micro-sized SiC particles exhibited a sudden decrease with time during isothermal holding as observed in as-received brazing filler alloys. As the quantity of the SiC particles increased in the brazing alloy, the recorded contact angle values including the final, stable contact angle increased, while the time for the drastic contact angle change also increased remarkably. Compared to as-received counterparts, the addition of 2 wt.% nano-sized SiC and 1 wt.% micro-sized SiC particles improved the shear strength of the joints by 35 and 8%, respectively. Although the recorded contact angle values were close to each other in brazing alloys containing SiC particles with different sizes (37 and 42 degrees for 1 wt.% micro-sized and 2 wt.% nano-sized additions), higher increment was achieved in the mechanical performance of the joints with nano-sized SiC additive due to more homogeneous reinforcement effect of the nanoparticles. The results indicated that the optimum brazing filler alloy contact angle for the highest shear strength is similar to 40 degrees for both nano- and micron-sized additive containing Ticusil filler alloy.


A parametric comparative study of electrocoagulation and coagulation using ultrafine quartz suspensions
Kilic, Mehtap Guelsuen; Hosten, Cetin; Demirci, Şahinde (2009-11-15)
This paper attempts to compare electrocoagulation using aluminum anodes and stainless steel cathodes with conventional coagulation by aluminum sulfate dosing on aqueous suspensions of ultrafine quartz. Several key parameters affecting the efficiency of electrocoagulation and coagulation were investigated with laboratory scale experiments in search of optimal parameter values. Optimal values of the parameters were determined on the basis of the efficiency of turbidity removal from ultrafine quartz suspension...

Saltık, Simge; Dericioğlu, Arcan Fehmi; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2021-9-09)
In the present study, joining of two dissimilar materials namely C/SiC composites and Ti6Al4V alloys by brazing using Ag-Cu based brazing filler alloys have been investigated. The effect of active Ti element content, additive particle size/amount in the filler alloy together with the reinforcement structure, material properties of the C/SiC composite on the interface evolution mechanism and resulting mechanical performance of the brazed joints have been examined. Additionally, apart from the brazing studies...
A density functional theory study of oxidation of benzene to phenol by N2O on Fe- and Co-ZSM-5 clusters
Fellah, Mehmet Ferdi; Önal, Işık (2009-06-01)
Density functional theory (DFT) calculations were carried out in the study of oxidation of benzene to phenol by N2O on relaxed [(SiH3)(4)AlO4M] (where M=Fe, Co) cluster models representing Fe- and Co-ZSM-5 surfaces. The catalytic cycle steps are completed for both Fe-ZSM-5 and Co-ZSM-5 clusters. The general trend of the results that were obtained in terms of activation barriers for the Fe-ZSM-5 cluster is in agreement with the experimental and theoretical literature. It was observed that the phenol formatio...
A numerical study of solidification and viscous dissipation effects on polymer melt flow in plane channels
Tutar, Mustafa; Karakuş, Ali (Walter de Gruyter GmbH, 2013-04-01)
The combined effects of solidification and viscous dissipation on the hydrodynamic and thermal behavior of polymer melt flow during the injection process in a straight plane channel of constant cross section are numerically studied by considering the shear-rate and temperature-dependent viscosity and transient-phase change behavior. A numerical finite volume method, in conjunction with a modified form of the Cross constitutive equation to account for shear rate, temperature-dependent viscosity changes and a...
The effects of some methacrylate monomers used as liquid component on tensile and flexural strengths of a poly (methyl methacrylate) denture base resin

This study was conducted to observe the effect of different monomers on tensile and flexural strengths of poly (methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) denture base resin when they were used as a liquid component. A conventional heat-cured denture base polymer powder was mixed with ethyl, isobutyl and tert-butyl methacrylate monomers, respectively. After the polymerization process was completed, the tensile and flexural strength values of these specimens were compared with those that of PMMA resin specimens polymerized...
