Experimental measurements of interfacial strength at the nanoscale Nanoölçekteki arayüzeylerin kayma dayanimlarininin deneysel olarak ölçülmesi

Nanolayered metals are nanomaterials composed of alternating layers of two metals with layer thicknesses below 1 micron. Nanolayered metals are promising for engineering applications due to their superior properties such as high yield strength, thermal stability and radiation resistance. For the development of stronger nanolayers and for obtaining a better understanding of structure-proprety relationships of these materials, the interfacial strengths of the layers needs to be measured accurately and precisely. Molecular dynamics simulations and experimental measurements indicate that the shear strengths of the interfaces are quite low compared to the yield strength of the layers when the layers are of different crystal structures forming an incoherent interface. However, experimental studies on this subject are very limited and there is very limited information regarding the sample preparation approaches. In this study, details of a method for experimental measurement of shear strength of interfaces are presented. For this purpose, copper-niobium layers were produced by physical vapor deposition, micropillar samples were prepared by focused ion beam, and the samples were subjected to compression tests by means of a nanoindenter. Before the sample production, silicon microcylinders were produced by standard lithography techniques which provided a novel approach for reducing the sample production time and cost and improving the manufacturing repeatability of the samples and results. The shear strength results are consistent with experimental data in the literature and molecular dynamics simulations. The applied method offers an effective approach to measure the adhesion properties of the various engineering coatings as well as the interfacial strength of the phase interfaces of multi-phase alloys.

Syntheses of self-supported tubular zeolite a membranes
Gücüyener, Canan; Kalıpçılar, Halil; Department of Chemical Engineering (2008)
Zeolites are microporous hydrated aluminosilicate crystals containing alkali and/or alkali earth metal cations in their frameworks. Due to their molecular size pores, they can separate molecules according to their size and shape. Zeolites are mostly used in ion exchange, adsorption processes and catalytic applications. The hydrophilic/hydrophobic character of zeolites also makes them favorable materials for adsorption based separations. Recently the potential of zeolite/ceramic composite membranes have been...
Experimental investigation of the mechanical properties of nanolayered metals
Alpkaya, Alican Tuncay; Özerinç, Sezer; Kalay, Yunus Eren; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2018)
Nanolayered metals are materials composed of alternating metallic layers with layer thicknesses on the order of 100 nm or smaller. These nanostructured materials exhibit higher yield strength, superior wear resistance, and better thermal stability compared to most conventional alloys. These outstanding mechanical properties make them promising for many fields including transportation, aerospace and energy industries. The relationship between the microstructure and mechanical properties of these materials sh...
Effect of roughness on flow measurements in sloping rectangular channels with free overfall
Fırat, Can Ersen; Tiğrek, Şahnaz; Department of Civil Engineering (2004)
The characteristics of the subcritical, critical and supercritical flows at the rectangular free overfall were studied experimentally to obtain a relation between the brink depth and the flow rate. A series of experiments were conducted in a tilting flume with wide range of flow rate and two bed roughness in order to find the relationship between the brink depth, normal depth, channel bed slope and bed roughnesses. An equation was proposed to calculate the flow rate if only the brink depth, roughness, and c...
Effect of thermal neutron irradiation on the elastic constants of tourmaline
Özkan, H. (Informa UK Limited, 1987-2)
The effect of thermal neutron irradiation due to the B10(n, α)Li7 reaction on the elastic wave velocities and the elastic moduli of tourmaline crystals has been studied. Oriented tourmaline samples have been irradiated with thermal neutrons to 7.6 × 1018n/cm2 and the elastic wave velocities determined by ultrasonic measurements. The elastic wave velocities are not affected by thermal neutron irradiation below 8 × 10l7n/cm2, effects starting to appear at approximately 1 × l018n/cm2 with more important decrea...

Kutlu, İhsan; Tiğrek, Şahnaz; Department of Civil Engineering (2005)
The flow characteristics of the subcritical and supercritical flows over a free overfall in a rectangular channel are studied experimentally. A series of experiments were conducted in a tilting flume with a wide range of flow rate. Data collected by several researchers are also included. An empirical relationship, which gives the flow rate as a function of the brink depth, the channel bed slope and the bed roughness are confirmed by using data collected in present study. In addition, the behaviors of the ra...
