Intermetallic phase formation at Fe-Al film interefaces

Temizel, Güvenç
This thesis presents the formation mechanism of intermetallics formed at Fe-Al film interfaces. Al thin films with different initial film thicknesses were coated on low carbon steel substrates by physical vapor deposition (PVD). By annealing the system at different temperatures and for different time intervals, several intermetallic phases were observed. X-Ray, SEM and EDS studies showed that intermetallic phases FeAl2 and Fe2Al5 are most dominant phases which were observed and they formed sequentially on the contrary of intermetallics which formed synchronous in bulk materials.


Theoretical and experimental investigation of bulk glass forming ability in bulk amorphous alloy systems
Ayas, Can; Mekrabov, Amdulla O.; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2005)
In this study molecular dynamics simulation program in NVT ensemble using Velocity Verlet integration was written in order to investigate the glass forming ability of two metallic systems. The Zn-Mg system, one of the frontiers of simple metal-metal metallic glasses and Fe-B, inquiring attention due to presence of many bulk glass forming alloy systems evolved from this binary with different alloying element additions. In addition to this, atomistic calculations on the basis of ordering were carried out for ...
Finite element modeling of stress evolution in quenching process
Doğu, Doruk; Gür, Cemil Hakan; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2005)
In this thesis the finite element computer code QUEANA simulating the quenching of axisymetric parts and determining the residual stress state was improved by adding pre- and post-processors. The code was further verified by additional numerical experiments and comparison of the results with commercial software أMARCؤ. The possible applications of this code are optimization of industrial quenching processes by controlling the evolution of internal stresses and dimensional changes.
Microstructural characterization of hypoeutectoid steels quenched from the Ae1 - Ae3 intercritical temperature range by magnetic barkhausen noise technique
Boyacıoğlu, Beril; Gür, Cemil Hakan; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2006)
This thesis aims to examine the possibility of using Magnetic Barkhausen Noise technique in characterizing the ferritic-martensitic microstructure of hypoeutectoid steels quenched from the intercritical temperature range. For this purpose, rectangular specimens were prepared from SAE 1020, 1040 and 1060 steels. The specimens were heated at different temperatures within the intercritical temperature range and then quenched into water. Microstructures of the specimens were characterized by metallographic exam...
Simulation of orthogonal metal cutting by finite element analysis
Bil, Halil; Kılıç, Engin; Tekkaya, Erman; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2003)
The aim of this thesis is to compare various simulation models of orthogonal cutting process with each other as well as with various experiments. The effects of several process parameters, such as friction and separation criterion, on the results are analyzed. As simulation tool, commercial implicit finite element codes MSC.Marc, Deform2D and the explicit code Thirdwave AdvantEdge are used. Separation of chip from the workpiece is achieved either only with continuous remeshing or by erasing elements accordi...
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 ...
