A generalized polytetrahedral cluster approach to partial coordination numbers in binary metallic glasses

Partial coordination numbers (CNs) play a substantial role in description of hetero-coordinated local structure and related short-range order in metallic glasses. By defining a polytetrahedral aggregation for solute-solvent type atomic clusters, which retains cluster sphericity, high solute-solvent and solvent-solvent CNs, a preliminary model is developed to estimate the CN of a solute atom within a non-isolated cluster embedded in the glassy environment. Employing the result, a generalized quasi-hard sphere model is constructed by defining intra-and inter-cluster correlations, which can yield significantly close values to experimentally derived partial CNs in a great many metallic glass systems, such as Fe-B, Ni-B, Ni-P, Co-P, Pd-Si, Al-Y, Co-Zr, Co-Ti, Ni-Ti, Zr-Ni, Zr-Pd, Zr-Pt and Cu-Zr. The approach allows evaluation of a complete set of partial CNs in a given binary system as a function of atomic radii and composition.


Three-dimensional numerical modelling of temporal and spatial pattern formation in a dc-driven gas discharge-semiconductor system
Rafatov, İsmail (IOP Publishing, 2016-12-01)
A three-dimensional numerical model is developed and applied to study the temporal and spatial pattern formation in the planar layered system, consisting of a glow discharge layer, coupled to a high ohmic semiconductor layer. The whole system is sandwiched between two planar electrodes, to which a dc voltage is applied.
Numerical evidence of spontaneous division of dissipative solitons in a planar gas discharge-semiconductor system
Rafatov, İsmail (AIP Publishing, 2019-09-01)
This work deals with the formation of patterns of spatially localized solitary objects in a planar semiconductor gas-discharge system with a high Ohmic electrode. These objects, known as dissipative solitons, are generated in this system in the form of self-organized current filaments, which develop from the homogeneous stationary state by the Turing bifurcation. The numerical model reveals, for the first time, evidence of spontaneous division of the current filaments in this system, similar to that observe...
High-temperature site preference and atomic short-range ordering characteristics of ternary alloying elements in gamma '-Ni3Al intermetallics
Eriş, Rasim; Mehrabov, Amdulla; Akdeniz, Mahmut Vedat (Informa UK Limited, 2017-01-01)
Remarkable high-temperature mechanical properties of nickel-based superalloys are correlated with the arrangement of ternary alloying elements in L1(2)-type-ordered. gamma '-Ni3Al intermetallics. In the current study, therefore, hightemperature site occupancy preference and energeticstructural characteristics of atomic short-range ordering (SRO) of ternary alloying X elements (X = Mo, W, Ta, Hf, Re, Ru, Pt or Co) in gamma '-Ni3Al 21.875 X 3.125 alloy systems have been studied by combining the statistico-the...
A theoretical study on the simplest fullerene, C-20 - an AM1 treatment
Türker, Burhan Lemi (Elsevier BV, 2003-05-05)
Within the constraints of AM1 (UHF) type semiempirical quantum chemical treatment, C-20 and its cationic and anionic forms were considered for their stabilities. The results revealed that C-20 has a greater tendency to act as electron acceptor than a donor. C-20(-) and C-20(-2) were found to be even more stable than C-20.
The investigation of electronic, mechanical and lattice dynamical properties of PdCoX (X=Si and Ge) half-Heusler metallics in , and structural phases: an ab initio study
ERKİŞİ, AYTAÇ; SÜRÜCÜ, GÖKHAN; Ellialtioglu, Recai (Informa UK Limited, 2017-01-01)
PdCoX (X=Si and Ge) alloys which are XYZ type half-Heusler alloys and also have face centred cubic MgAgAs-type structure which conforms to space group, have been investigated in different atomic arrangements which are called , and phases, using local spin density approximation in the density functional theory as implemented in VASP (Vienna Ab Initio Simulation Package) software. Both of the alloys are considered in ferromagnetic order. After the investigation of stable structural phase for these alloys, the...
