The solid, liquid, and solidification properties of Pd, Ag pure metals and especially PdxAg1-x alloys are studied by using the molecular dynamics simulation. The effects of temperature and concentration on the physical properties of PdxÞAg1-x are analyzed. Sutton-Chen (SC) and Quantum Sutton-Chen (Q-SC) many-body potentials are used as interatomic interactions which enable one to investigate the thermodynamic, static, and dynamical properties of transition metals. The simulation results such as cohesive energy, density, elastic constants, bulk modulus, pair distribution functions, melting points and phonon dispersion curves obtained for Pd, Ag and PdxAg1-x are in good agreement with the available experimental data at various temperatures. The predicted melting points of Pd, Ag and their binary alloys by using Q-SC potential parameters are closer to experimental values than the ones predicted from SC potential parameters. The liquid properties such as diffusion constants and viscosities computed from Q-SC potentials are also in good agreement with the available experimental data and theoretical calculations. Diffusion coefficients and viscosity results calculated from simulation obey the Arrhenius equation well. The coefficients of the Arrhenius equation are given in order to calculate the self-diffusion coefficient and shear viscosity of Pd-Ag alloys at the desired temperature and concentration. Using different cooling rates, we investigate glass formation tendency and crystallization of Pd-Ag metal alloys, by analyzing pair distribution function, enthalpy, volume, and diffusion coefficient. Pd-Ag alloys show the glass structure at fast cooling rates while it crystallizes at slow cooling rates. Glass and crystallization temperatures are also obtained from the Wendt-Abraham parameter. The split of the second peak in the pair distribution function is associated with the..

The effects of substitutional ternary additions of Me = Zn, Ti, Si, Cr, Mn, Mo, W, Nb, Ta, V, Hf, or Zr on the energetical and structural characteristics of atomic short-range ordering (SRO) of Ni-3(Al(1-x)Me(x)) intermetallics with L1(2) type ordered structure have been analysed by combining the statistical theory of ordering with the electronic theory of alloys in pseudopotential approximation. The partial ordering energies and pairwise SRO parameters were calculated by taking into account the influence o...
Thermal and mechanical properties of some fcc transition metals
Cagin, T; Dereli, G; Uludogan, M; Tomak, Mehmet (1999-02-01)
The temperature dependence of thermodynamic and mechanical properties of six fee transition metals (Ni, Cu, Ag, Au, Pt, Rh) are studied using molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. The structures are described at elevated temperatures by the force fields developed by Sutton and co-workers within the context of the tight binding approach. In these simulations the thermodynamic and mechanical properties are calculated in the temperature range between 0 to 1500 K using the statistical fluctuation expressions ove...
Mechanochemical and volume combustion synthesis of ZrB2
Akgun, Baris; ÇAMURLU, HASAN ERDEM; Topkaya, Yavuz Ali; SEVİNÇ, NACİ (Elsevier BV, 2011-09-01)
Formation of ZrB2 by volume combustion synthesis (VCS) and mechanochemical process (MCP) from ZrO2-Mg-B2O3 was studied. Production of ZrB2 by VCS in air occurred with the formation of side products, Zr2ON2 and Mg3B2O6 in addition to MgO and ZrB2. Zr2ON2 formation was prevented by conducting VCS experiments under argon. Wet ball milling was applied to the VCS products before leaching for easier removal of Mg3B2O6 phase. MgO and Mg3B2O6 were removed from wet ball-milled products by leaching in 5 M HCI for 2.5...
