Theoretical prediction of bulk glass forming ability (BGFA) of Ti-Cu based multicomponent alloys

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 such as enthalpy, entropy and Gibbs free energy of mixing, viscosity, and critical cooling rate of the binary Ti-Cu and ternary Ti-Cu-X alloys. The potential alloying elements (X) can be divided in two groups defined by their effect on the variation of the negative heat of mixing and their influence on the critical cooling rate. Most of the predicted candidate alloying elements from either X, (Al, Si, Ag) or X-11 (Co, Ni, Fe, Sn, Be) and/or both groups have already been used successfully for the fabrication of new Ti-Cu based bulk metallic glasses. It was also shown that the critical cooling rate appears to be a more important parameter rather than the change in the negative heat of mixing for the prediction of candidate alloying elements improving BGFA.


Kinetics of fcc-Al nanocrystallization in Al90Tb10 metallic glass
DEMIRTAS, T.; Kalay, Yunus Eren (Elsevier BV, 2013-10-15)
The crystallization kinetics of Al90Tb10 amorphous alloy were investigated by a combined study of differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), Cu-K alpha X-ray diffraction (XRD) analyses and microhardness measurements. Amorphous to fcc-Al transformation kinetics were descried through Johnson-Mehl-Avrami OMA) approach based on the isothermal DSC hold at 220 degrees C. XRD and TEM revealed the formation of highly populated (similar to 10(21) m(-3)) fcc-Al nanocrystals after...
Theoretical investigation of intersubband nonlinear optical rectification in AlxlGa1-xlAs/GaAs/AlxrGa1-xrAs asymmetric rectangular quantum wells
Karabulut, Ibrahim; Atav, Uelfet; Safak, Haluk; Tomak, Mehmet (Wiley, 2007-09-01)
In this study, a theoretical investigation of intersubband nonlinear optical rectification in Alx1Ga1-x1As/ GaAs/AlxrGa1-xrAs asymmetric rectangular quantum wells is presented. The electronic states in the asymmetric rectangular quantum well are described within the framework of the envelope function approach including the effects of band nonparabolicity and the effective mass mismatch. The nonlinear optical rectification is calculated using the density matrix formalism. It is found that the nonlinear optic...
Investigation of structural, electronic, magnetic and lattice dynamical properties for XCoBi (X: Ti, Zr, Hf) Half-Heusler compounds
Surucu, Gokhan; IŞIK, MEHMET; CANDAN, ABDULLAH; Wang, Xiaotian; Güllü, Hasan Hüseyin (Elsevier BV, 2020-06-15)
Structural, electronic, magnetic, mechanical and lattice dynamical properties of XCoBi (X: Ti, Zr, Hf) Half-Heusler compounds have been investigated according to density functional theory and generalized gradient approximation. Among alpha, beta and gamma structural phases, gamma-phase structure has been found as the most stability characteristics depending on the calculated formation enthalpies, energy-volume dependencies and Cauchy pressures. Energy-volume plots of possible magnetic orders of gamma-phase ...
Stability analysis of graphene nanoribbons by molecular dynamics simulations
Dugan, N.; Erkoç, Şakir (Wiley, 2008-04-01)
In this work, stability of graphene nanoribbons are investigated using molecular dynamics. Simulations include heating armchair and zigzag-edged nanoribbons of widths varying between one and nine hexagonal rings until the bonds between carbon atoms start to break. Breaking temperatures and binding energies per atom for different widths are presented for both armchair and zigzag-edged cases. A nontrivial relation between stability and width is observed and discussed.
Modeling of Magnetic Properties of Nanocrystalline La-doped Barium Hexaferrite
KÜÇÜK, İLKER; Sozeri, Huseyin; Ozkan, Husnu (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2011-05-01)
In this paper an artificial neural network (ANN) has been developed to compute the magnetization of the pure and La-doped barium ferrite powders synthesized in ammonium nitrate melt. The input parameters were: the Fe/Ba ratio, La content, sintering temperature, HCl washing and applied magnetic field. A total of 8284 input data set from currently measured 35 different samples with different Fe/Ba ratios, La contents and washed or not washed in HCl were available. These data were used in the training set for ...
