Prediction of overall shape of sintered alumina compacts

The effects of the final aspect ratio on the overall shape of cylindrical sintered compacts, prepared by a uniaxial die pressing technique, are measured and described. An empirical compaction equation, which describes the compaction behaviour of a spray dried AKP-30 alumina powder, is presented The density distribution along the axis of the compacts was predicted by, using an established first-order analysis. From these predicted density distributions, the overall shapes of the sintered compacts were quite accurately predicted by using a set of sintering simulation equations obtained in separate experiments.

Investigation of optical parameters of Ag-In-Se thin films deposited by e-beam technique
ÇOLAKOĞLU, TAHİR; Parlak, Mehmet; ÖZDER, SERHAT (Elsevier BV, 2008-07-15)
The optical properties of the Ag-In-Se (AlS) thin films deposited by e-beam technique were investigated by means of the optical transmittance measurements. The optical absorption coefficients of the films were found to vary from 10(3) to 10(5) cm(-1) over the wavelength range of 300-1100 nm. The real and imaginary parts of the refractive index and dielectric constant for the as-grown and annealed films in between 100 and 400 degrees C were evaluated by means of both envelope method (EM) and continuous wavel...
Determination of the influence of TiO2 on the elastic properties of a mica based glass ceramic by ultrasonic velocity measurements
Gür, Cemil Hakan; Öztürk, Abdullah (Elsevier BV, 2005-11-15)
The influence of small amount (1 or 2 wt%) of TiO2 additions and crystallization heat treatment on the elastic properties of a mica based glass ceramic have been investigated by ultrasonic velocity measurements. The mica based glass ceramic was prepared through controlled crystallization of a glass in the SiO2, Al2O3, CaO, MgO, K2O and F system. Evidences of TiO2 acting as a nucleating agent in this system was demonstrated. The longitudinal and transversal wave velocities of the as-prepared glass and the mi...
Theoretical prediction of bulk glass forming ability (BGFA) of Ti-Cu based multicomponent alloys
SUER, Sila; Mehrabov, Amdulla; Akdeniz, Mahmut Vedat (Elsevier BV, 2009-03-01)
The bulk glass forming ability (BGFA) of Ti-Cu based multicomponent alloys has been evaluated via theoretical modeling and computer simulation studies based on a combination of electronic theory of alloys in the pseudopotential approximation and the statistical thermodynamical theory of liquid alloys The. magnitude of atomic ordering energies, calculated by means of the electronic theory of alloys in the pseudopotential approximation, was subsequently used for calculation of the key thermodynamic parameters...
Prediction of forming limit curve at fracture for sheet metal using new ductile fracture criterion
Dizaji, Shahram Abbasnejad; Darendeliler, Haluk; KAFTANOĞLU, BİLGİN (Elsevier BV, 2018-05-01)
The application of ductile fracture criteria (DFCs) in numerical analysis of sheet metal forming processes can lead to the accurate determination of the fracture initiation. In this study, a new uncoupled ductile fracture criterion (DFC) has been developed which considers the effects of material parameters on the forming limit curves (FLCs) and can be easily implemented in the finite element codes. Two different constitutive models have been employed with the new DFC in order to evaluate the results obtaine...
Improvement of organoclay dispersion into polystyrene-based nanocomposites by incorporation of SBS and maleic anhydride-grafted SBS
Dike, Ali Sinan; Yılmazer, Ülkü (SAGE Publications, 2020-04-01)
In this study, organoclay-containing polystyrene (PS)-based nanocomposites were fabricated by extrusion in the presence of thermoplastic elastomer modifiers. Styrene-butadiene-styrene (SBS) rubber was used as the elastomeric compatibilizer and maleic anhydride (MA) was grafted onto SBS rubber at different ratios. Grafting was made via melt blending. Cloisite (R) 30B was used as the organoclay and it was added to PS and PS/SBS blends using a corotating twin-screw extruder, followed by injection molding. Clay...
