Determination of susceptibility to intergranular corrosion and electrochemical reactivation behaviour of AISI 316L type stainless steel

Aydogdu, G. H.
Aydınol, Mehmet Kadri
In this study, double loop electrochemical potentiokinetic reactivation (DLEPR) test was applied to determine the degree of sensitization in 316L type stainless steel, where obtained results were correlated with revealed microstructures after oxalic acid test and weight loss measurements of Streicher and Huey acid tests. Best agreement was provided with test parameters which are 1 M H2SO4 and 0.005 M KSCN at 0.833 mV/s scan rate at 30 degrees C. Specimens were classified structurally as absence of chromium carbides - step, no single grain completely surrounded by carbides - dual and one or more grain completely surrounded by carbides - ditch, in the as-etched structure, if the I-r:I-a (x100) ratios were obtained to be between 0 and 0.2, 0.2 and 5.0 and 5.0 and higher, respectively. It was also found that at high KSCN concentrations, reactivation current profile skewed to higher potentials where this was attributed the formation of metastable pits, during the anodic scan of the test procedure.


Characterization of polylactide/poly(ethylene glycol) blends via direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry
Ozdemir, Esra; Tincer, Teoman; Hacaloğlu, Jale (2016-11-01)
In this study, melt blended poly(lactic acid) and poly(ethylene glycol), (PLA)/PEG samples involving 10, 15 and 20 wt% PEG were prepared and characterized by direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry technique in addition to classical techniques such differential scanning calorimetry, thermogravimetric analyses and mechanical tests. The incorporation of PEG resulted in consistent and significant decrease in the tensile strength and modulus, and reduction in endothermic melting peak of PLA due to the plasticizing e...
Development of test structures and methods for characterization of MEMS materials
Yıldırım, Ender; Arıkan, Mehmet Ali Sahir; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2005)
This study concerns with the testing methods for mechanical characterization at micron scale. The need for the study arises from the fact that the mechanical properties of materials at micron scale differ compared to their bulk counterparts, depending on the microfabrication method involved. Various test structures are designed according to the criteria specified in this thesis, and tested for this purpose in micron scale. Static and fatigue properties of the materials are aimed to be extracted through the ...
Assessing Weathering in Field Cell Experiments Using Quantitative Mineralogy and Sequential Leaching
Haupt, C; Kabwe, L; Klein, B; Jorge, A; Altun, Naci Emre (null; 2011-11-01)
The objective of this study was to characterize the weathering behavior of select samples from the non acid producing waste rock materials at the Antamina mine using field cell tests and laboratory scale sequential extraction tests. Field cell results have indicated the release of metals, particularly arsenic and zinc, under neutral pH conditions. Sequential extraction and mineralogical characterization tests have demonstrated that carbonate dissolution under acidic conditions may be a significant source of...
Investigation of optical characteristics of PbMoO4 single crystals by spectroscopic ellipsometry
Delice, S.; Isik, M.; Hasanlı, Nızamı; Darvishov, N.H.; Bagiev, V.E. (2022-07-01)
© 2022 Elsevier GmbHIn this study, we investigated the optical properties of PbMoO4 single crystals grown by Czochralski method. Spectroscopic ellipsometry measurements were carried out in the energy region between 1.0 and 5.5 eV at room temperature. X-ray diffraction measurements were achieved for structural characterization. The resulted pattern exhibited one peak belonging to (200) plane. Spectral variations of complex dielectric function, complex refractive index, absorption coefficient and dissipation ...
Evaluation of the Performance Limit States of Reinforced Concrete Columns in View of Experimental Observations
Acun, Bora; Sucuoğlu, Haluk (2011-07-01)
In this study, twelve full-scale column specimens designed for pure flexure were tested under repetitive displacement cycles with high amplitude. Two typical column designs were employed in the production of samples representing sub-standard and code-conforming columns, respectively. The main variable in the experiments was the histories of the imposed displacement amplitudes. The deformation-based performance limits proposed by Eurocode 8, ASCE/SEI 41 and Turkish Seismic Code (TDY-2007) for sub-standard co...
