In the present work a novel method to improve the surface properties of stainless steel is presented and discussed. The method, based on the use of a high repetition rate femtosecond Yb fibre laser, permits generation of highly reproducible, robust, uniform and periodic nanoscale structures over a large surface area. The technique is characterized by high productivity, which, in its most simple form, does not require special environmental conditioning. Surface morphology is scrutinized through SEM and AFM analyses and wettability behaviour is investigated by means of the sessile drop method using distilled-deionized water. It is shown that optimization of process parameters promotes anisotropic wetting behaviour of the material surface. (C) 2015 CIRP.


Drying kinetics of water-based ceramic suspensions for tape casting
Briscoe, B.J.; Lo Biundo, G.; Özkan, Necati (1998-01-01)
An experimental study is described which seeks to characterise the drying kinetics of water-based ceramic (alumina) suspensions in controlled environments. The drying process of the ceramic suspensions is shown, to a first approximation, to follow a two stage mechanism (initial stage: 'external' evaporation controlled process; and second stage: 'internal' diffusion-controlled process). It has been shown that the temperature, the humidity and the surface area of the samples strongly affects the drying kineti...
Simulation of equal channel angular pressing applied to produce structures with ultrafine-sized grains
Karpuz, Pinar; Şimşir, Caner; Gür, Cemil Hakan (Inderscience Publishers, 2009-01-01)
Severe plastic deformation methods are of great interest in industrial forming applications, as they give rise to significant refinement in microstructures and improvements in mechanical and physical properties. In the 'equal channel angular pressing (ECAP)', which is the most common method for production of ultrafine grained bulk samples, very high plastic strains are introduced into the bulk material without any change in cross section. In this study, the plastic deformation behaviour of the materials sub...
Improvement of mechanical and flame retardancy properties of biocomposites based on low density polyethylene and polylactic acid
Altun, Yasemin; Bayramlı, Erdal; Doğan, Mehmet Onur; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2015)
The main objective of this study was to improve the mechanical and flame retardant properties of low density polyethylene (LDPE) and poly (lactic acid) (PLA) based biocomposites. Wood flour (WF) and jute fabric were used as the fillers. In the mechanical property improvement studies with LDPE, the effect of two compatibilizing agents MA (random terpolymer of ethylene, acrylic ester and maleic acid) and GMA (random terpolymer of ethylene, acrylic ester and glycidyl metacrylate) functionalized polymers at dif...

The absorption of water by denture base materials is important because it is directly related with dimensional stability of dental material. In this study, water absorption of denture base materials reinforced with different type of dental fiber systems was compared. The samples were prepared from heat-polymerized and microwave polymerized denture base resins and reinforced with different dental fiber systems. Five different reinforcement materials were used in this study, namely, (1) no fiber (control grou...
Local Structure and Chemistry in Marginal Forming Alloys
Ulucan, Tolga Han; Kalay, Eren; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2020-9)
In this thesis structural and corresponding mechanical properties of marginal metallic glass-forming alloys were studied. Al90Tb10 system exhibits unique devitrification features due to their exceptional primary crystallization products of Al nanocrystals with populations reaching up to 1024 m−3 . A full agreement on how this abnormal nucleation event occurs is still lacking. Our previous studies on Al-RE (RE: rareearth element) have shown that two different amorphous precursors prepared using melt-sp...
