Electroplating is widely used in many fields for decorative and engineering purposes. Nickel is mostly used for engineering applications beacause of its enchanced mechanical properties such as low internal stress and high corrosion and erosion resistance. It was reported that the use of pulse or pulse reverse currents instead of direct current produced homogenous deposits of better surface finish [1,2]. Nickel sulphamate bath was used in this study to attain better mechanical properties, lower internal stresses and good surface quality. The effects of pulse reverse current (PRC) method on the hardness, microstructure and roughness of the deposits were investigated and compared with direct current (DC) plating. In PRC electroplating, current value is alternated between anodic and cathodic currents to provide higher ion concentrations near electrodes compared to DC plating. In this way, the increased nucleation rate and the number of grains per unit area leads to a decrease in grain size [1]. In addition, the homogenity of the deposits can be improved and the growth of the planes can be controlled by the use of PRC coating [3]. In the design of experiments, special emphasis was given to the ratio of the anodic and cathodic current densities. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) analyses, roughness measurements and vickers hardness tests were used to characterize the deposits. The results of selected DC and PRC deposits can be seen in Figure 1.


Effect of Delamination on the Strength of Laminated Glass Plate Structures
Aşık, Mehmet Zülfü (2013-11-17)
Laminated glass which consists of two glass sheets connected to each other with PVB interlayer is used in many engineering applications for years. Despite the long history of the use of laminated glass in buildings there are serious problems about delamination of laminated glass units. This paper provides information about delamination issues of laminated glass plate structures. Delamination of laminated glass unit may be due to the thinning of PVB (Polyvinyl Butyral) interlayer or the folds which occur dur...
Effects of Fe-TiB2 addition as binder phase on the liquid phase sintering behaviour of tungsten carbide cermets
Tankut, A; Timucin, M (2004-01-01)
The sintering behaviour of tungsten carbide compacts with a eutectic Fe-TiB2 mixture was studied. In order to have a clear view of the mechanisms that occur during liquid phase sintering, the hardness, transverse rupture strength, toughness, and densification values were measured and the micrographs were examined for WC-Fe-TiB2 cermets with varying compositions, sintering times and sintering temperatures. The findings were then with the propeerties known for WC-Fe and WC-Co cermets.
Effect of polymer additives on the physical properties of bitumen based composites
Doğan, Mehmet; Bayramlı, Erdal; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2006)
Polymer modified bitumen is a binder obtained by the incorporation of various types of polymers in bitumen using mechanical mixing or chemical reactions. There are several factors affecting the properties of polymer modified bituminous composites such as; chemical composition of bitumen, kind of polymer and filler, compatibility of bitumen and polymer, amount of bitumen, polymer and filler, particle size of filler and process conditions. The main objective of this study is to determine the effects of polyme...
Effect of welding parameters on the hot cracking behavior of 7039 aluminum - zinc alloy
Akkuş, Mert; Gürbüz, Rıza; Batıgün, Caner; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2010)
7039 aluminum alloys are widely being used in the aerospace, automotive and defense industries in which welding technique is used for their joining. The main problem encountered during the welding of 7039 aluminum alloy is hot cracking. The aim of this study is to understand the effect of welding parameters on the hot cracking behavior of 7039 aluminum alloy by using Modified Varestraint Test (MVT) with Gas Tunsgten Arc Welding (GTAW) technique. During tests, welding speed was selected as varying parameter,...
Production of nano alumoxane from aluminum hydroxide
Sezgiker, Korhan; Gündüz, Güngör; Department of Chemical Engineering (2010)
Alumina (Al2O3) is one of the most widely used engineering ceramic. It can be used in a wide range of applications like electrical/thermal insulation, wear resistance, structural refractories, cutting tools, abrasives, catalyst carriers and coatings. A traditional ceramic process has several steps (i.e. powder synthesis and processing, shape forming, drying, organic burnout and densification). Accessing powders with sizes in the range of a couple of micrometers down to several tens of nanometers is consider...
