Improvement of fracture resistance in a glass matrix optomechanical composite reinforced by Al2O3-ZrO2 minicomposite
Dericioğlu, Arcan Fehmi; Kagawa, Y. (null; 2002-12-31)
The possibility of obtaining fracture resistant optically transparent ceramic matrix optomechanical composites was studied on a continuous Al2O3-ZrO2 minicomposite-reinforced glass matrix model composite. A mesh-like reinforcement structure composed of unidirectional minicomposites was determined to be effective in improving the fracture resistance of the brittle matrix with a small expense in its optical transparency. With decreasing minicomposite to minicomposite spacing, the fracture resistance of the op...
Improvement of impact resistance of aluminum and zinc based die cast parts by means of tool steel inserts
Kamberoğlu, Murat; Kalkanlı, Ali; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2011)
High Pressure Die Casting (HPDC) is low-cost technique for the mass production of complex, non-ferrous parts. Despite its benefits such as dimensional accuracy, surface quality and high production rate; some mechanical drawbacks limit use of HPDC in production of critical parts especially under dynamical loads. This study aims to improve impact resistance and surface hardness of die cast parts by means of tool steel inserts. These inserts act as a barrier between the impactor and die casting alloy, in order...
Improvement of fracture resistance in a glass matrix optomechanical composite by minicomposite unit bridging
Dericioğlu, Arcan Fehmi (Elsevier BV, 2005-10-15)
Minicomposite unit bridging, which was experimentally determined to be the dominant toughening mechanism resulting in the R-curve behavior of the Al2O3-ZrO2 minicomposite-reinforced glass matrix optomechanical composite, was studied quantitatively using luminescence spectroscopy. Applied stress induced shift of the luminescence bands of the minicomposite reinforcement was calibrated. Using the experimentally obtained calibration curve, axial stresses could be mapped along the minicomposite embedded in the g...
Improvement of bioactivity with dual bioceramic incorporation to nanofibrous PCL scaffolds
Altunordu, Gercem; Tezcaner, Ayşen; Evis, Zafer; Keskin, Dilek (2023-03-01)
Bone tissue injuries, diseases or related clinical interventions require bone tissue engineering (BTE) approaches for regeneration of large bone defects, especially for compromised situations. Most BTE applications in literature focused on composites of polymers with a single type of bioceramic. However, native bone matrix has various inorganic components. Accordingly, this study aimed to investigate the use of dual bioceramics in BTE scaffolds prepared by wet-electrospinning of Poly-caprolactone (PCL) and ...
Improvement of Laser-Crystallized Silicon Film Quality via Intermediate Dielectric Layers on a Glass Substrate
Cinar, Kamil; Karaman, Mehmet; Bek, Alpan (2018-05-01)
The laser crystallization (LC) of amorphous silicon thin films into polycrystalline silicon (pc-Si) thin films on glass substrates is an active field of research in the fabrication of Si-based thin film transistors and thin film solar cells. Efforts have been, in particular, focused on the improvement of LC technique. Adhesion promoters of the crystallized Si thin films at the glass interface play a crucial role in the stability and device performance of fabricated structures. The crystalline Si thin films ...
