© 2022 IOP Publishing Ltd.Hafnium diboride (HfB2) is an ultra-high temperature ceramic that has attracted increased attention for its fascinating properties. In this study, temperature derivatives of the bulk modulus of HfB2 were calculated from room temperature up to 2273 K by using the relevant theoretical thermodynamic equations for the bulk modulus. The equations used involve the parameters as the enthalpy, thermal expansion and heat capacity in addition to the Anderson Grüneisen parameter. The calculations were performed using the pressure derivative of the bulk modulus for the Anderson Grüneisen parameter and the experimental temperature dependent values for the other parameters of the used equations. Temperature derivatives of the bulk modulus of HfB2 were found to be, −0.012/−0.013 GPa K−1 at 293 K and −0.015/−0.016 GPa K−1 at 2273 K. These values are in good agreement with the corresponding experimental data, and quite close to the corresponding values reported for ZrB2 and TiB2. However, the experimental temperature derivatives of the bulk moduli for the three diborides, TiB2, ZrB2, and HfB2 are quite smaller in magnitude than the corresponding theoretical values. The Grüneisen parameter of HfB2 decreases from 1.2 to about 1.0 with increasing temperature up to about 500 K, and then it has a small variation at higher temperatures. HfB2, with its high strength, high density and small temperature derivatives of the bulk modulus, may be useful for the aerodynamic and nuclear applications. The method presented in our studies is a practical way to predict temperature dependencies of the bulk moduli. This method may be more useful at ultra-high temperatures where the experimental bulk moduli measurements are quite difficult.

Investigation of radiative heat transfer in freeboard of a 0.3 MWt AFBC test rig
Kozan, M; Selçuk, Nevin (2000-01-01)
Based on the analysis of measured data on flow rates, concentrations and temperatures taken during steady state operation of a lignite-fired 0.3 MWt Atmospheric Fluidized Bed Combustor (AFBC) test rig, radiative exchange in freeboard of the combustor was modeled by using a well-stirred enclosure model in conjunction with Radiosity-Irradiation Method (RIM). Radiative properties of the particle laden combustion gases were calculated by assuming grey radiation behaviour for both particles and gas, and using Le...
A fast model for computing infrared atmospheric background effects
Sivaslıgil, Mustafa; Esendemir, Akif; Department of Physics (2006)
The infrared atmospheric background modeling can be considered as one of the important key factor to develop a successful target detection technique. During the infrared atmospheric background modeling, defining the input parameters of the atmospheric profile are very important for the calculations of the absorption, emission and scattering effects of the atmosphere. The main objective of this thesis is to find the answer for the question أis it possible to determine the أeffectiveؤ height range for the sea...
A study on the effects of gamma radiation on the properties of polycarbonate
Kinalır, Kerim Gökhan; Usanmaz, Ali; Kaynak, Cevdet; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2011)
This thesis aims to investigate the effects of gamma radiation on the properties of polycarbonate, an engineering thermoplastic which has a wide range of applications. A commercial grade polycarbonate resin, after being shaped into the required specimen forms by injection molding, was irradiated with different doses up to 180 kGy. Tensile strength was found to decrease with increasing dose. The lowest values of tensile modulus, flexural modulus and flexural strength were obtained at 96 kGy, which is also th...
Characterization of non-Fickian moisture absorption in thermosetting polymers
Güloğlu, Görkem Eğemen; Altan, M. Cengiz (2015-05-22)
© 2015 AIP Publishing LLC.A recently developed moisture absorption model for thermosetting polymers that combines the non-Fickian, diffusion hindrance effects and three-dimensional anisotropy is introduced. The hindered diffusion model is shown to predict both short term Fickian and long term anomalous moisture absorption behavior often observed in thermosetting polymers and their composites. The salient characteristics of long term moisture uptake such as the equilibrium moisture content and the effect of ...
Characterization of gas-solid flow in conical spouted beds operating with heavy particles
Sari, Salih; Külah, Görkem; KÖKSAL, MURAT (2012-07-01)
This study presents the results of an experimental investigation of the hydrodynamics of conical spouted beds operating with high density particles. This type of spouted beds is frequently encountered in chemical vapor deposition coating of nuclear fuel elements. Measurements were performed in three 15 cm ID full circular (gamma = 30 degrees, 45 degrees, 60 degrees) and one half circular conical spouted (gamma = 30 degrees) bed with yttria-stabilized zirconia particles (d(p) = 0.5, 1 mm; rho(p) = 6050 kg/m(...
