The microstructure of ternary eutectic Al-Al2Cu-Ag2Al arranges in several patterns of three solid phases during directional solidification. One key question for understanding the behavior of this system is if and how the patterns depend on crystal orientation relationships (ORs) between the solid phases. In order to study the correlation between the ORs and the evolving patterns for different process conditions, electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) is performed on samples of directionally solidified ternary eutectic Al-Al2Cu-Ag2Al which have been processed with different solidification velocities and temperature gradients. The results show that characteristic ORs occur, influencing the type of the evolving pattern, the alignment of the phases and the degree of order. For one specific OR the pattern was observed to change in response to an imposed increase in the growth velocity even though the OR was retained. Based on the obtained EBSD results, an explanation for the observed behavior is proposed. For the other ORs, specific microstructures were observed for each of them. The outcomes demonstrate that knowledge about crystal ORs is essential to improve the understanding of the pattern formation in complex eutectic alloys. (C) 2018 Acta Materialia Inc.

Molecular structure and vibrational spectra of 4-tert-butylpyridine by density functional theory and ab initio Hartree-Fock calculations
Kurt, M; Yurdakul, Murat Hayrettin; Yurdakul, S (2003-11-28)
The molecular geometry and vibrational frequencies of 4-tert-butylpyridine(4-tbpy) in the ground state have been calculated by using the Hartree-Fock and density functional methods (B3LYP and BLYP) with 6-31G (d) as the basis set. The optimized geometric bond lengths obtained by using B3LYP and bond angles obtained by BLYP show the best agreement with the experimental values. Comparison of the observed fundamental vibrational frequencies of 4-tbpy and calculated results by density functional B3LYP, BLYP and...
Structure of turbulence within a sheared wake of a rotor blade
Soranna, Francesco; Chow, Yi Chih; Uzol, Oğuz; Katz, Joseph (null; 2006-07-17)
Stereoscopic PIV measurements examine the flow structure and turbulence within a rotor near wake located within a non-uniform field generated by a row of Inlet Guide Vanes (IGVs). The experiments are performed in a refractive index matched facility that provides unobstructed view of the entire flow field. The data are acquired at 10 closely spaced radial planes located near mid-span, enabling measurements of all the components of the phase averaged velocity and strain rate, as well as the Reynolds stress an...
Fundamental periods of steel eccentrically braced frames
Kusyilmaz, Ahmet; Topkaya, Cem (2015-02-10)
This paper describes formulation of a hand method that can be used to estimate the computed fundamental periods of vibration of building structures in general and steel eccentrically braced frames (EBFs) in particular. The developed method uses the Rayleigh's method as a basis and utilizes the roof drift ratio (RDR) under seismic forces as a parameter. To obtain RDR, more than 4000 EBFs were designed by considering the seismic hazard, number of stories, braced bay width and link length to bay width ratio as...
Phenomenological Analysis of the Pomeron-f Complex in Hadron Total Cross Sections
Hacınlıyan, Avadis (Oxford University Press (OUP), 1977-7-1)
Total cross sections in the range 6≤pL≤280 GeV/c are phenomenologically analyzed in order to extract symmetry properties of the Pomeron-f complex. The compatibility of a two component Pomeron with the second component contributing to NN, πN and KN cross sections in the ratio 9 : 4 : 2 is shown. It is found that ω-f exchange degeneracy critically depends on both f and Pomeron universality. Finally, it is demonstrated that one may interpret the Pomeron contribution as an enhances cut and the f contribution as...
Transition structures and energetics for the Cope rearrangement of cis-1,2-divinylcyclobutane: an ab initio study
Zora, Metin; Özkan, İlker (2003-05-05)
Transition structures and energetics for the Cope rearrangements of cis-1,2-divinylcyclobutane, obtained by RHF/6-31G* and MP2(full)/6-31G*//RHF/6-31G* calculations, are reported. Three transition structures (endo-boatlike, chairlike and exo-boatlike) have been located, giving rise to formation of cis,cis-, cis,trans- and trans,trans- 1,5-cyclooctadienes, respectively. cis-1,2-divinylcyclobutane rearranges via an endo-boatlike transition structure and yields the corresponding cis,cis product with higher exo...
