Effect of swaging on microstructure and tensile properties of W-Ni-Fe alloys

Caliskan, N. Kaan
Bor, Sakir
The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of swaging on the microstructure and tensile properties of high density two phase alloys 90W-7Ni-3Fe and 93W-4.9Ni-2.1Fe. Samples were liquid phase sintered under hydrogen and argon at 1480 degrees C for 30 min and then 15% cold rotary swaged. Measurement of microstructural parameters in the sintered and swaged samples showed that swaging slightly increased tungsten grain size in the longitudinal direction and slightly decreased tungsten grain size in the transverse direction. Swaging increased the contiguity values in both longitudinal and transverse directions. Swaging led to more severe deformations at the edges than at the center of the specimens. Solidus and liquidus temperatures of the nickel-based binder phase in the sintered and swaged samples were determined by differential scanning calorimetry measurements. An increase in tensile strength with a reduction in ductility was observed due to strain hardening by swaging.


Effects of fabrication method on initial powder characteristics and liquid phase sintering behaviour of tungsten
Erol, Mahmut; Erdogan, Metehan; Karakaya, İshak (Elsevier BV, 2018-12-01)
Direct electrochemical production of tungsten involves removal of oxygen in solid state from an important tungsten compound, calcium tungstate, in molten salts. A detailed experimental study was performed to characterize the liquid phase sintering behaviour of the tungsten powder (WE), which was produced by the direct electrochemical reduction technique. All of the tungsten heavy alloy (WHA) compositions covered in this study, contained four parts nickel, one part cobalt and over 90 wt% tungsten. The pellet...
Effect of lithium doping on the properties of Tl-based superconductors
Kayed, TS; Ozkan, H; Hasanlı, Nızamı (IOP Publishing, 2001-09-01)
The effects of lithium doping on the formation and properties of the T1-based superconductors have been studied. Lithium atoms up to around 3 mol.% have been added to the oxides of nominal composition Tl1.8Ba2Ca2.2Cu3Ox, and the usual solid-state reaction method has been applied. Lithium additions in the range 0.23-0.29 mol.% increase the fraction of the Tl-2223 phase and significantly improve the critical temperature of the samples. Higher amounts of lithium additions diminish the Tl-2223 phase, reduce the...
The deactivation behavior of the TiO2 used as a photo-catalyst for benzene oxidation
Üner, Deniz (1999-01-01)
In this study, the deactivation behavior of TiO2 as a photocatalyst for benzene decomposition to carbon dioxide and water was investigated. The effect of space time on the benzene and carbon dioxide conversions were monitored. Benzene conversion and carbon dioxide production rates were not correlated, indicating accumulation of a carbon containing intermediate on the surface. This intermediate was blocking the active sites at a stiochiometry of 1 C:1 site. High space times favored the production of carbon d...

In this study, Al-8Fe-8Si-1.4V/SiCp composites fabricated by squeeze casting process were age-hardened to study the influence of heat treatment on mechanical properties, such as hardness, bending strength and modulus of elasticity. The cast samples were solid soluted at 540 degrees C for one hour, then quenched in water to room temperature, and finally aged at 190 degrees C for 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 hours for hardness test and at 195 degrees C for 2, 6 and 10 hours for bending strength determination.
Effect of friction stir processing on fracture toughness and crack growth behaviour of fusion welded 5083 grade aluminum plates
Akçay, Günseli; Gür, Cemil Hakan; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2015)
The purpose was to investigate the effects of post-weld friction stir processing (FSP) on the microstructure and fatigue crack propagation in Aluminum Alloy 5083 H111 weldments. As preliminary study, optimization trials were done in order to decide the type, rotational speed, and travel speed of the FSP tool. Microstructural examinations, hardness and tensile tests were done on as-processed materials. In the second part of the work, FSP was applied on the weld zone of the 5083 H111 plates that were joined b...
