High Pressure Torsion (HPT) is one of the most widely used severe plastic deformation methods which enable to obtain a crack free ultra-fine grained bulk material with improved mechanical properties like increased strength and toughness. In the process, a disc shaped sample is pressed between two anvils and deformed via surface friction forces by rotating one of the anvils. The aim of this study is to nondestructively characterize the variations in the deformation uniformity of the severely deformed steel disks. Two sets of low carbon steel samples were obtained by applying the unconstrained and constrained HPT process up to 6 turns. Magnetic Barkhausen Noise (MBN) method was used in order to evaluate the samples in a nondestructive manner via a commercial device. The results of the MBN measurements were verified with those of conventional methods such as; x-ray diffraction (XRD), metallographic examination and hardness measurements. The initial stages of HPT revealed the effects of conventional plastic deformation on MBN; however with further straining, grain size refinement prevailed and caused increase in MBN signals.

In the present work the effect of isothermal ageing treatment on the microstructure and on the localized corrosion resistance of a duplex stainless steel (DSS) was investigated. Specimens taken from a hot rolled cylindrical duplex stainless bar with 22% Cr grade were solution annealed at 1050°C and then sensitization heat treatments were conducted at 650, 725 and 800°C with duration ranging from 100 to 31622 min. The microstructural changes were examined by the light optical microscopy (LOM) and scanning el...

Monitoring variation of surface residual stresses in the shot peened steel components by magnetic barkhausen noise method
Savaş, Serdar; Gür, Cemil Hakan; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2010)
Shot peening is a cold-working process by which residual compressive stresses are being induced in the surface region to increase the fatigue strength and the resistance to stress-corrosion cracking. This study covers non-destructive measurement of surface residual stresses in the shot-peened steel components by a micro-magnetic technique, named as Magnetic Barkhausen Noise (MBN) method. For this purpose, various low alloy steel specimens were prepared by a controlled shot peening process with different int...

Süer, Sıla; Mekhrabov, Amdulla O.; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2008)
The aim of this study is to investigate the bulk glass forming ability (BGFA) of Ti-based alloy systems. These investigations were carried out in two main parts that are complementary to each other: theoretical and experimental. For theoretical studies, which are based on electronic theory of alloys in pseudopotential approximation, Ti-Zr, Ti-Co and Ti-Cu alloys were chosen as the binary systems. Alloying element additions were performed to each binary for the investigation of the BGFA of multicomponent Ti-...
