The electrochemical performance of Li(Ni-0.80-xCo(0.15)Al(0.05)M(x))O-2 (NCA) cathode was demonstrated to be improved by calcium and yttrium doping. Samples were synthesized by ultrasonic sound-assisted co-precipitation method which satisfied precipitation of nano-sized particles around 20 nm. Doping elements were introduced to the structure by solid-state reaction route and single phase, layered Li-0.993(Ni0.804Co0.154Al0.035Y0.014)O-2 +/-sigma and Li-0.991(Ni0.801Co0.152Al0.037Y0.019)O-2 +/-sigma samples were successfully synthesized. Lattice parameters and site occupancy of the atoms were calculated by Rietveld refinement. Occupancy refinement of the atomic sites confirmed that doping elements occupied the transition metal layer as it was aimed. The presence of doping elements in the transition metal layer stabilized nickel and decreased the amount of cation mixing. Y-doped NCA sample exhibited the highest initial specific discharge capacity (157 mAh g(-1)) and Ca-doped sample showed the highest rate capability. Pristine NCA showed the lowest capacity, in any case, indicating the necessity of further treatment to achieve improvement in NCA cathode.


Effect of tube spinning and subsequent heat treatments on strength, microstructure and residual stress state of AISI/SAE type 4140 steel
Gür, Cemil Hakan (Informa UK Limited, 2003-11-01)
In the present study, the effects of deformation percentage (23, 30, 50 and 66%) and subsequent stress relief and tempering heat treatments on the mechanical properties, residual stress state and microstructure of AISI/SAE type 4140 steel tubes manufactured by forward spinning were evaluated. Mechanical properties were determined by means of hardness and tensile tests. The tangential component of the surface residual stresses was determined by a slitting method. Plastic deformation of the metal during spinn...
Effect of initial powder morphology on thermal and mechanical properties of stand-alone plasma-sprayed 7 wt.% Y2O3-ZrO2 coatings
Ercan, Batur; Trice, Rodney W.; Wang, Hsin; Porter, Wally (Elsevier BV, 2006-11-05)
The effects of starting powder morphology on the thermal and mechanical properties of stand-alone plasma-sprayed 7 wt.% Y2O3-ZrO2 (YSZ) coatings were studied. Two powder morphologies were investigated: an agglomerated and sintered powder (referred to presently as "AS") and a powder manufactured using plasma spheroidization to create hollow spheres (referred to presently as "HS"). Coatings made from AS powders contained 0.21 wt.% SiO2 impurity, twice as much as observed in coatings made from HS powders. Prop...
Effect of Sm on thermal and mechanical properties of Cu-Zr-Al bulk metallic glasses
Sikan, Fatih; Atabay, S. E.; Motallebzadeh, A.; Özerinç, Sezer; Kalay, I.; Kalay, Yunus Eren (Elsevier BV, 2019-01-16)
The effect of rare-earth (Sm) microalloying on the thermal stability and phase selection along with the effect of nanocrystallization on the mechanical properties of amorphous melt-spun ribbons of Zr50Cu40Al10, Zr49Cu39.2Al9.8Sm2 and Zr48Cu38.4Al9.6Sm4 alloys were investigated using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), Vickers and nanoindentation hardness tests and micropillar compression analysis. XRD and TEM analyses showed that all samp...
Effect of gramicidin S on the dipalmitoylphosphatidyl-glycerol thermotropic phase transition in DPPG/GS systems: A mathematical approach
Stan, Cristina; Cristescu, C. P.; Severcan, Feride; Dorohoi, Dana (Informa UK Limited, 2006-01-01)
We present a mathematical approach to the experimental data recorded via Fourier transform-infrared spectroscopy regarding the influence of the concentration of the antimicrobial peptide gramicidin S (GS) on the thermotropic phase transition of the dipalmitoylphosphatidyl-glycerol (DPPG) lipid bilayer membrane in DPPG/GS systems. The model is based on the influence of the GS concentration on the parameters of a nonlinear damped oscillator, which models the CH2 symmetric stretching band.
Effect of Presoaked Expanded Perlite Aggregate on the Dimensional Stability and Mechanical Properties of Engineered Cementitious Composites
KESKİN, SÜLEYMAN BAHADIR; Sulaiman, Kamaran; Sahmaran, Mustafa; Yaman, İsmail Özgür (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2013-06-01)
This paper reports on an investigation of the use of expanded perlite aggregate as saturated lightweight aggregate (LWA) with respect to the mechanical and dimensional stability properties of engineered cemetitious composites (ECC). Expanded perlite aggregate was soaked in water for 24 h before its use in ECC, and replaced 10, 20, and 30% of the aggregate that was used in ECC production. The mixture proportion of a standard ECC mixture with properties that have been extensively reported in the literature is...
