Nondestructive Monitoring of Pearlite Degradation in Medium Carbon Steels by Magnetic Barkhausen Noise Method

Cementite in steel microstructures exits in various forms such as lamellae in pearlite after normalizing, or nano-size particles in ferrite matrix after quenching-tempering, or large spheroidal particles in ferrite matrix after spheroidizing heat treatment. Any alteration in the cementite morphology influences the strength and hardness of pearlite that exists in most of the steel structures used in wide range of industrial applications. For instance, spheroidizing heat treatment is intentionally applied to increase the cold formability and machinability. On the other hand, there is a serious risk for the structural integrity of boiler tubes and steam pipes that operate at elevated temperatures for long periods due to degradation of pearlite by formation of spheroidal cementite. This study aims to investigate the applicability of Magnetic Barkhausen Noise (MBN) method for nondestructive detection of the changes in pearlite caused by prolonged heating of medium carbon steel near the eutectoid temperature. The microstructures were characterized by metallographic investigations, hardness and MBN measurements. It was observed that MBN emission is very sensitive to the alteration in the spheroidization level which makes it a candidate for nondestructive determination of the pearlite degradation.

Nondestructive Characterization of Microstructures of Heat-Treated Steels by Magnetic Barkhausen Noise Technique
Gür, Cemil Hakan (2017-01-01)
Optimization and control of the microstructure is important for improving the properties of steel components. Development of non-destructive techniques for microstructure characterization is a critical task. Magnetic Barkhausen Noise (MBN) technique is a promising and challenging non-destructive technique for automated evaluation of microstructures in steel components in a fast and reliable manner. This paper presents the results of MBN measurements for microstructure characterization of the quenched and te...
Quantitative analysis of nonlinear dynamics of quantum light transmission in strongly coupled quantum dot-cavity systems
Tugen, Alperen; Kocaman, Serdar (Elsevier BV, 2019-04-01)
We compared transmission spectra of coupled high-Q cavity with quantum dot (QD) systems in the strong coupling regime with Input-Output Formalism (IOF) and Incoherent Pumping Mechanism (IPM) based on Lindblad master equation approach. The peak transmission of Dipole Induced Transparency (DIT) together with its full-width-half-maximum (FWHM) are enquired for detailed analysis. Both methods exhibit the same vacuum Rabi splitting in on-resonant case, in contrast, the peak of DIT is estimated smaller between 50...
Direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry analyses of polyamide-6 containing melamine and boron compounds
Isbasar, Ceyda; Bayramli, Erdal; Hacaloğlu, Jale (2013-08-01)
In this work, the thermal degradation characteristics of polyamide 6 (PA6) containing melamine (Me) and a boron-containing additive, borophosphate (BPO4), zinc borate (ZnB) or a boron and silicon-containing oligomer (BSi) are investigated systematically via direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry. In the presence of boron compounds, not only the release of melamine and its degradation products but also thermal characteristics of PA6 are affected significantly and the interactions between melamine and PA6 are enh...
Pyrolysis of poly(phenylene vinylene)s with polycaprolactone side chains
Nur, Yusuf; Çolak, Demet; Cianga, Ioan; Yagci, Yusuf; Hacaloğlu, Jale (2008-05-01)
The thermal degradation characteristics of a new macromonomer poly(epsilon-caprolactone) with central 4,4'-dicarbaldehyde terphenyl moieties and poly(phenylene vinylene)s with well defined (E-caprolactone), (PPV/PCL) as lateral substituents were investigated via direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry. The unexpectedly high thermal stability of the macromonomer was attributed to intermolecular acetylation of benzaldehyde yielding a hemiacetal and causing a crosslinked structure during the pyrolysis. Increased th...
Combined effects of ALS and SLS on Al2O3 reinforced composite nickel coatings
Yılmaz, Olgun; Karakaya, I. (Informa UK Limited, 2020-05-03)
The mechanical and tribological properties of electrochemical coatings can be enhanced by the embedded second phase particles to nickel matrix. Two different anionic surfactants sodium dodecyl sulfate and ammonium lignosulfonate were used together to adjust the wetting conditions and provide the suspension of Al2O3 particles in a nickel sulfamate electrolyte in this study. The effects of current density and amounts of the two surfactants on wear rate, coefficient of friction, and hardness were studied. It w...
