Site Selection and Pseudo-Clustering Behaviors of Alloying Elements in Aluminum-Lean gamma-TiAl Intermetallics

2010-02-01
Site selection and pseudo-clustering behaviors of the various M alloying elements in Al-lean Ti50Al50-X M (X) (X = 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 at. pct) intermetallics have been investigated by means of the ordering energy-dependent and long-range-order forced fast Monte Carlo simulation method. The ordering energies have been calculated via pseudopotential approximation in the electronic theory of alloys up to the third coordination sphere (CS) taking the anisotropic nature of tetragonal L1(0)-type structure of gamma-TiAl into account. It was shown that the site occupation characteristics of the M alloying element atoms in gamma-TiAl intermetallics are governed by the relative magnitude of partial ordering energies between Ti-M and Al-M atomic pairs. However, the sign of partial ordering energies of these atomic pairs at the first CS becomes important in determining the clustering behavior and controls the dissolution modes of alloying element atoms in the gamma-TiAl matrix. The pseudo-clustering behavior of alloying elements reveals three dissolution modes, namely, random dissolution (mode I), planar clustering in two dimensions (mode II), and three-dimensional (3-D) clustering (mode III) of the M occupant atoms.

Immobilization of urease in conducting thiophene-capped poly(methyl methacrylate)/pyrrole matrices
Alkan, S; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Bakir, U; Yagci, Y (Elsevier BV, 2001-08-22)
Urease was immobilized in conducting polypyrrole and block copolymers of thiophene-capped poly(methyl methacrylate) matrices by electropolymerization. Immobilization of the enzyme was achieved by application of 1.0 V constant potential in a solution of 0.02 M pyrrole, 2 mg/ml urease, 0.5 mg/ml supporting electrolyte. The optimum immobilization conditions, electrolysis time, electrolysis medium, enzyme concentration during electrolysis, type of supporting electrolyte were determined. The kinetic behaviors of...
DOPING AND BAND-GAP ENGINEERING OF AN INTRAZEOLITE TUNGSTEN(VI) OXIDE SUPRALATTICE
OZIN, GA; MALEK, A; PROKOPOWICZ, R; MACDONALD, PM; Özkar, Saim; MOLLER, K; BEIN, T (1991-01-01)
New results are presented concerning the topotactic self-assembly, n-type doping and band-gap engineering of an intrazeolite tungsten(VI) oxide supralattice n(WO3)-Na56Y, where O < n ≤ 32, built-up of single size and shape (WO3)2 dimers. In particular it has been found that the oxygen content of these dimers can be quantitatively adjusted by means of a thermal vacuum induced reversible reductive-elimination oxidative-addition of dioxygen. This provides access to new n(WO3−x)−Na56Y materials (0 < x ≤ 1.0) in...
Stress resultants plasticity with general closest point projection
Sarıtaş, Afşin (Elsevier BV, 2011-03-01)
In this paper, general closest point projection algorithm is derived for the elastoplastic behavior of a cross-section of a beam finite element. For given section deformations, the section forces (stress resultants) and the section tangent stiffness matrix are obtained as the response for the cross-section. Backward Euler time integration rule is used for the solution of the nonlinear evolution equations. The solution yields the general closest projection algorithm for stress resultants plasticity model. Al...
Lattice dynamical and thermo-elastic properties of M2AlB (M = V, Nb, Ta) MAX phase borides
Surucu, Gokhan; Gencer, Ayşenur; Wang, Xiaotian; Surucu, Ozge (Elsevier BV, 2020-04-05)
The structural, electronic, dynamic, and thermo-elastic properties of M2AlB (X = V, Nb, Ta) MAX phase borides were investigated using first principle calculations as implemented in the Vienna Ab-initio Simulation Package (VASP) with the generalized gradient approximation (GGA). The obtained structural properties and formation energies showed the thermodynamic stability and synthesizability of M2AlB. The electronic band structures were determined and they revealed that these compounds had a metallic characte...

In this study poly(dithieno[3,4-b,3',4'-e]-[1,4]-dithiine) (PDTH) was synthesized potentiodynamically in both p- and n-doping domains in 0.1 M tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate/acetonitrie/borontrifluoride ethylether (8:2, v/v). Resulting homopolymer was characterized via cyclic voltammetry, FTIR and UV-vis Spectroscopy. PDTH revealed both anodically and cathodically coloring electrochromic behavior, upon p-and n-doping, respectively. Spectroelectrochemistry analysis of p-doped polymer, reflected electro...
