An Empirical Approach to Analyze Creep Rupture Behavior of P91 Steel

Aslam, Muhammad Junaid
Gür, Cemil Hakan
P91 steel has been a highly researched material because of its applicability for high-temperature applications. Considerable efforts have been made to produce experimental creep data and develop models for creep life prediction. As creep tests are expensive and difficult to conduct, it is vital to develop authenticated empirical methods from experimental results that can be utilized for better understanding of creep behavior and can be incorporated into computational models for reliable prediction of creep life. In this research, a series of creep rupture tests are performed on the P91 specimens within a stress range of 155 MPa to 200 MPa and temperature range of 640 oC (913 K) to 675 oC (948 K). The microstructure, hardness, and fracture surfaces of the specimens are investigated. To analyze the results of the creep rupture tests at a macro level, a parameter called creep work density is derived. Then, the relationships between various creep parameters such as strain, strain rate, time to rupture, creep damage tolerance factor, and creep work density are investigated, and various empirical equations are obtained.

A 5-Parameter Isothermal Creep Model For Polymeric Liners
Güner, Doğukan; Öztürk, Hasan (null; 2019-07-12)
Polymeric materials are commonly used as load-carrying components in different structural applications due to the ease of manufacture, installation and long lifetime properties. In civil and mining engineering applications, fast-setting thin polymeric liners are in demand as areal support elements in underground openings. The stability of the openings is maintained by polymeric liners that might sustain the constant loads due to the presence of wedge blocks. Therefore, their time-dependent mechanical respo...
An investigation on dynamic contact parameters in machining center spindle tool assemblies
Özşahin, Orkun; Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2008)
In machining centers, with the increasing trends in high precision machining, chatter has become an important problem which results in poor surface finish and low material removal rate. Chatter can be avoided with stability diagrams which provide the stable regions in the machining process for the depth of cut and spindle speed combinations. In order to obtain stability diagrams, tool point frequency response function (FRF) of the system should be obtained. Throughout this study, contact parameters which ar...
A parametric study on hydrothermal synthesis of zinc oxide nanowires with various zinc salts

ZnO is a promising semiconducting material for manufacturing optoelectronic devices. Its most important properties are its wide and direct band gap and its high electron-hole binding energy. Synthesis of ZnO in bulk and thin film form has been investigated intensively over recent decades. Likewise, nanomaterials have been in the point of focus for their different properties compared to their bulk form. The vastly increased ratio of surface area to volume and change in electronic properties with great reduct...

With the recent developments in high performance computing power, molecular modeling calculations to design and improve new generation additives for engine oils have reached a level that can support and guide experimental results. Control of insoluble nanoparticle aggregations in oil and on the engine pistons is the most important key performance parameter for lubricant oil additives. General consensus about the mechanism of deposit build-up is the self-aggregation of nanosized insoluble structures. Deterge...

Sert, Elif; Toffoli, Hande; Department of Physics (2020-10-9)
Graphene is a single layer allotrope of carbon with a honeycomb arrangement of atoms, characterized by excellent mechanical properties such as high tensile strength, high Young’s modulus as well as desirable electrical properties such as high electron mobility. Due to these superior properties, it is considered an important material in numerous technological applications. Among these, graphene-polymer composites have attracted significant interest in the materials research community in recent years. T...
