The present study was conducted to reveal the effects of building angles and post heat-treatments (2-step Thermo-Hydrogen Processing (THP) and conventional annealing treatment) on the density, microstructure and texture of Ti6Al4V alloy parts produced by Electron Beam Melting (EBM). The results showed that regardless of the building angle; the density, microstructure and crystallographic texture (defined with respect to building angle) of the as-produced samples were identical; having Widmanstatten a structure and columnar beta-grains which are parallel to building direction. The main texture component for the alpha phase was (10 (1) over bar0)//building direction, and for beta phase (001)//building or heat flow direction. The first step of THP, namely, the hydrogenation step, produced a needle-like microstructure and increased the local misorientations due to lattice distortion. On the other hand, after application of the second step of THP, dehydrogenation step, microstructure was refined, particularly alpha-grains that were larger than 10 mu m and located at grain boundaries. Moreover, THP randomized the crystallographic texture since it involves beta to alpha phase transformation, at which one beta-grain can produce 12 distinct alpha-variants. The grain boundary misorientation distributions also changed in accordance with the microstructural changes during the 2-step THP. On the other hand, annealing coarsened the grain boundary and Widmanstatten alpha phases; moreover, it changed the texture so that the basal planes (0001) rotated 30 degrees around the building direction.


Microstructural investigation of Cu2+ doped nanohydroxyapatites
Evis, Zafer (Informa UK Limited, 2010-05-01)
Pure and Cu2+ doped nanohydroxyapatites were synthesised by a precipitation method to investigate the effect of Cu2+ ions on the structure of hydroxyapatite (HA) and its thermal stability after the air sintering at 1100 degrees C. A small amount of CaO was observed in the Cu2+ doped HAs after the X-ray diffraction results. The addition of Cu2+ changed the hexagonal lattice parameters of the HA and resulted in smaller grain size after sintering at 1100 degrees C. The addition of Cu2+ ions into HA resulted in...
Extensive deformation behavior of an all-oxide Al2O3-TiO2 nanostructured multilayer ceramic at room temperature
Dericioğlu, Arcan Fehmi; Kagawa, Yutaka (Cambridge University Press (CUP), 2009-11-01)
An all-oxide Al2O3-TiO2 ceramic multilayer composed of 10-100 nm thick alternating layers was fabricated using the reactive magnetron sputtering process. Microindentation tests were carried out on the multilayer ceramic followed by microstructural observations of the cross-sections of the indented sites to characterize the indentation response of the system. During the observations, it was noted that an extensive room temperature "deformation" occurred in the multilayer ceramic material. The material shows ...

Sikan, Fatih; Atabay, S. E.; Motallebzadeh, A.; Özerinç, Sezer; Kalay, I.; Kalay, Yunus Eren (Elsevier BV, 2019-01-16)
The effect of rare-earth (Sm) microalloying on the thermal stability and phase selection along with the effect of nanocrystallization on the mechanical properties of amorphous melt-spun ribbons of Zr50Cu40Al10, Zr49Cu39.2Al9.8Sm2 and Zr48Cu38.4Al9.6Sm4 alloys were investigated using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), Vickers and nanoindentation hardness tests and micropillar compression analysis. XRD and TEM analyses showed that all samp...

In this study, effect of temperature in the electrical resistance heating process on mechanical properties and microstructures of commercially pure titanium grade 2 (CP2) and Ti-6Al-4V (T64) alloy sheets was investigated. Sheets were successfully heated by the electric resistance heating process, and their mechanical properties and microstructures were evaluated. Ductilities of both materials were increased significantly after 400 degrees C. Results indicate that no significant change was observed in grain ...
Temperature dependent band gap in SnS2xSe(2-2x) (x=0.5) thin films
Delice, S.; Isik, M.; Gullu, H. H.; Terlemezoglu, M.; Surucu, O. Bayrakli; Hasanlı, Nızamı; Parlak, Mehmet (Elsevier BV, 2020-08-01)
Structural and optical properties of SnS2xSe(2-2x) thin films grown by magnetron sputtering method were investigated for composition of x = 0.5 (SnSSe) in the present study. X-ray diffraction, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy and scanning electron microscopy methods were used for structural characterization while temperature-dependent transmission measurements carried out at various temperatures in between 10 and 300 K were accomplished for optical investigations. X-ray diffract...
