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...
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...
EFFECT OF AGING ON MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF Al-8Si-8Fe-1.4V/SiCp COMPOSITES
Essari, A.; Sariuglo, F.; Petrovic, Z.; Sedmak, A.; Samardzic, I. (2016-01-01)
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.

In this study, the effect of different heat treatment processes on microstructural and mechanical properties of Distaloy-DH and Astaloy Mo (Fe-2Cu-1.5Mo) powders are investigated. Powder samples are sintered at 1120°C for 45 minutes in a sintering furnace under reducing atmosphere of: 10% H2 + 90% N2. After sintering, secondary heat treatments are performed on samples. Microstructural characterization of samples is done with optical and electron microscopy. Selective etching is utilized for determining the ...

Okcu, Işık Yılmaz; Kalkanlı, Ali; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2011)
Before beginning the experimental work of this study, a magnesium high pressure die casting facility is set up to manufacture magnesium cast parts for defence industry. In this thesis two components are cold chamber high pressure die casted using magnesium alloy AZ91 as raw material, and one component was manufactured using both aluminium alloy A.413, and magnesium alloy AZ91. Mechanical properties of high pressure die casting parts depend on various parameters such as, thickness of the cast part, position ...
