Local structures of the Al-RE marginal metallic glasses and liquids: A molecular dynamics study

Sarıtürk, Doğuhan
Al-based metallic glasses (MGs) have outstanding structural and functional properties and are of great interest in the literature and industry. The formation of metallic glasses opens up extraordinary possibilities, and the structure and structure-property relationship at the atomic level must be thoroughly studied to tailor such properties. Al-Rare Earth (RE)-based alloys form an important class of marginal glass-forming alloys in which the presence of Al nanocrystals accompanies primary crystallization. Our previous studies on Al-based rare earth (Al–RE) metal alloys (RE: Sm, Tb) have shown that the phase selection hierarchy upon devitrification depends on the middle range order present in the devitrification state. In this study, the atomic structures of binary Al-Sm metal alloys were investigated using molecular dynamics (MD) simulations with Embedded Atom Method (EAM) potential to reveal the structural evolution in molten, supercooled, and quenched states considering short and medium range orders.

Ferraioli, L.; Cazzanelli, M.; Daldosso, N.; Mulloni, V.; Bellutti, P.; Yerci, Selçuk; Turan, Raşit; Mikhaylov, A.n.; Tetelbaum, D.ı.; Pavesi, L. (null; 2006-12-01)
Photoluminescence properties of silicon nanocrystals embedded in five different oxide matrices are analyzed. Samples are silicon rich oxide and oxynitride produced by PECVD and ion implantation and crystalline and amorphous aluminum oxide implanted with silicon.

Background: Aromatic polyamides are important materials having outstanding thermal, electronic and mechanical properties among high performance polymers and industrial plastics. In addition, aromatic polyamides can be utilized in electronic devices with their low dielectric constant which indicates the storage capacity of these devices. Objective: Free volume is very important for dielectric materials and increase in free volume of a polymer reduces its dielectric constant. The aims of the current study are...
Thermal and mechanical properties of Pt-Rh alloys
Dereli, G; Cagin, T; Uludogan, M; Tomak, Mehmet (1997-04-01)
We utilize the many-body potentials developed by Sutton and Chen within the context of the tight-binding approach to study the bulk properties of metals and metal alloys in molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. In the simulations of Pt-Rh alloys we used the MD algorithms based on an extended Hamiltonian formalism from the works of Andersen, Parrinello and Rahman, Nose, Hoover, and Cagin. The simulator program that we use generates information about various physical properties during the run time, along with ...
Electronic structure of carbon nanotubes: AM1-RHF calculations
Erkoç, Şakir; Turker, L (Elsevier BV, 1999-07-01)
We have investigated the electronic structure of optimized open-ended single-wall carbon nanotubes with armchair and zigzag geometries. The calculations were performed using AM1-RHF semiempirical molecular orbital method. It has been found that the density of states of the zigzag model is more sensitive to the tube size than that of the armchair model.
Experimental investigation of the effect of CNT addition on the strength of CFRP curved composite beams
Arca, M.A.; Uyar, I.; Çöker, Demirkan (2015-01-01)
Carbon nanotubes (CNT) have been attracting attention as a toughening material in composite matrix due to their excellent mechanical properties. However, superior properties of CNTs have not yet been realized in the strengthening of composites against fracture. This study focuses on investigating the effect of CNT variation in the epoxy resin on the strength of curved composite beams. Specimens are [0/90] fabric carbon/epoxy composite laminates manufactured by hand layup technique 3 % wt CNT fractions in th...
