The aim of this study is to synthesize and characterize new bulk amorphous alloys in the Ni- based systems. Theoretical studies on the basis of semi-empirical rules and the electronic theory of alloys in pseudopotential approximation has been provided in order to predict the impurity elements that will lead to an increase in the glass forming ability of Ni-based alloy systems. Glass forming ability of ten different compositions of alloys of Ni-Nb, Ni-Fe, Ni-B, Ni-Hf and Ni-Cr was simulated by using FORTRAN programs based on pseudopotential theory. In addition to the binary alloys, ternary alloys, which were formed by addition of 1 at% of third element to these systems, were also simulated. Since ordering energy is an indicator of glass forming ability, theoretical studies allowed to predict the effect of various third elements on the formation of amorphous phase. Furthermore, ordering energies were also used to calculate other parameters important for glass forming ability. In the second part of the study, on the basis of theoretical results, a series of casting experiments were done. Different compositions of Ni-Nb, Ni-Nb-Sn and Ni-Nb-Al alloys were cast in the centrifugal casting machine. Alloys were melted in alumina crucibles and cast into the copper moulds. Characterizations of cast alloys were done by the use of Metallography, SEM, XRD and DSC. Fully amorphous Ni52Nb41Al7 alloy was synthesized in bulk form with 0.8 mm thickness.

In recent years, bulk amorphous alloys and nanocrystalline materials have been synthesized in a number of ferrous and non-ferrous based alloys systems, which have gained some applications due to their unique physico-chemical and mechanical properties. In the last decade, Zr-based alloys with a wide supercooled liquid region and excellent glass forming ability have been discovered. These systems have promising application fields due to their mechanical properties; high tensile strength, high fracture toughne...
Spray rolling of rapidly solidified Al-FeV-Si alloy
Özyurda, Halit Akın; Kalkanlı, Ali; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2006)
In this study an experimental spray-rolling set-up is designed in order to produce rapidly solidified Al-Fe-V-Si flat product. Al-Fe-V-Si alloys produced by rapid solidification powder metallurgy (RSP/M) methods are mostly used in high temperature applications in aerospace and automotive industries. The RSP/M technique used is spray deposition, which is desirable because of the high cooling rates achieved, as a result fine silicide dispersoids and intermetallics are observed in the microstructure which are ...
An investigation of the microstructural and mechanical properties of tri-calcium phosphates doped with aluminum and fluoride ions

The aim of this study was to investigate the microstructure and mechanical properties of pure tricalcium phosphate (TCP) and tricalcium phosphates doped with aluminum (Al3+) and fluoride (F-) ions at different compositions. TCP was synthesized via precipitation method and sintered at 1100C for 1 and 5 h. It was observed that density and relative density of the sintered materials were decreased by extending the sintering time. Increased densities were achieved upon Al3+ and/or F- doping. For structural anal...

The aim of this study was to extract nickel and cobalt from the lateritic nickel ores of Gördes region by hydrometallurgical methods under the optimum conditions. Limonitic and nontronitic types of Gördes lateritic nickel ores were used during experiments. Agitative and column leaching experiments at atmospheric pressure were conducted with various parameters; these were duration, temperature and initial sulfuric acid concentration of leach solution. It was shown that in agitative leaching, under the optimu...

The aim of this study, which was carried out in two main parts, is to investigate the glass forming ability of Fe-based systems. The first part involves the theoretical modeling to cover the requirement of a predictive model to identify the Fe-based alloy families that have high glass forming ability in the frame of atomistic and thermodynamic approach. The second part involves the experimental investigations to prove the results of the conducted theoretical modeling studies. For this purpose, in the first ...
