Ferritic/martensitic steels are one of the best candidates for structural materials for high dose applications in next generation nuclear reactors. The composition of structural materials must be optimized for reliable service during irradiation. This study reports the effect of interstitial nitrogen on radiation response in 12Cr ferritic/martensitic HT9 steels having a controlled nitrogen concentration. Results show that a high amount of 'free' nitrogen in the matrix stabilizes the interstitial clusters which leads to (i) larger loop sizes (ii) lower loop density and (iii) slightly reduced radiation induced hardening. It also affects diffusion mechanism of Ni and formation of Ni/Si-rich precipitates.


In-situ observation of nano-oxide and defect evolution in 14YWT alloys
Aydoğan Güngör, Eda; Li, M.; Maloy, S.A. (Elsevier BV, 2020-12-01)
© 2020 Elsevier Inc.Nanostructured ferritic alloys (NFAs) are considered as candidates for structural components in advanced nuclear reactors due to their excellent radiation resistance as a result of a high density of nano-oxides (NOs) in the microstructure. Therefore, gaining an understanding on the stability of NOs under irradiation is crucial. In this study, we have investigated the evolution of defects and NOs in 14YWT NFAs under in-situ Kr ion irradiation at room temperature (RT) and 450 °C up to 10 d...

Ferritic alloys are important for nuclear reactor applications due to their microstructural stability, corrosion resistance, and favorable mechanical properties. Nanostructured ferritic alloys having a high density of Y-Ti-O rich nano-oxides (NOs < 5 nm) are found to be extremely stable at high temperatures up to similar to 1100 degrees C. This study serves to understand the effect of a high density of nano-particles on texture evolution and recrystallization mechanisms in ferritic alloys of 14YWT (14Cr-3W-...
Thermal lattice scattering mobility and carrier effective mass in intrinsic Tl2InGaTe4 single crystals
Qasrawi, A. F.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (IOP Publishing, 2007-04-18)
Systematic structural, dark electrical resistivity and Hall coefficient measurements have been carried out on n- type Tl2InGaTe4 single crystals. The data from x- ray powder diffraction allowed determination of the tetragonal unit cell lattice parameters. Analysis of the electrical resistivity and carrier concentration, which was recorded in the temperature range 210 - 350 K, reveals the intrinsic type of conduction with an average energy band gap of 0.85 eV. The temperature- dependent Hall mobility was obs...
Titanium-magnesium based composites: Mechanical properties and in-vitro corrosion response in Ringer's solution
ESEN, ZİYA; Dikici, Burak; Duygulu, Ozgur; Dericioğlu, Arcan Fehmi (Elsevier BV, 2013-06-20)
Ti-Mg composite rods exhibiting both bioinert and biodegradable characteristics have been manufactured by hot rotary swaging from elemental powders of titanium and magnesium. As a result of processing, spherical magnesium powders elongated in the direction of deformation and the dendritic structure in starting magnesium powders transformed into highly equiaxed grains. Magnesium particles in the outer layer of the composites were decorated by thin layer of MgO while the interior parts were free from oxides. ...
Stress distributions in cooling fins of variable thickness with and without rotation
Eraslan, Ahmet Nedim (Informa UK Limited, 2005-08-01)
A computational model is developed to predict elastic and elastic-plastic stress distribution in a nonlinearly hardening cooling fin of variable thickness subject to centrifugal force. The model is based on a realistic conduction-convection mechanism, von Mises yield criterion, Henky's deformation theory and a Swift-type strain hardening law. Temperature dependency of modulus of elasticity, uniaxial yield limit, coefficient of thermal expansion, and thermal conductivity of the fin material is taken into acc...
