    carbide eutectics. Microstructure, crystallography, mechanical pro­ perties and mechanism of failure were investigated. Some of the investLgated eutectics retain considerable strength at elevated tem­ perature, whereas the majority of alloys and sintered oxide bodies show rapid loss in strength. Eutectic in the system B4C-SiC shows.   NASA has selected 65 researchers to receive grants totaling approximately $22 million over four years to conduct microgravity materials science research on Earth and in space.

    We shall look firstly at the development of microstructure for the alloy of eutectic composition (29%Cu).

Its long term goal is to be able to control the microstructure of directionally solidified eutectic alloys, through an improved understanding of the influence of convection. The primary objective of the projects in the present grant is to test hypotheses for the reported influence of microgravity on the microstructure of eutectics.

Abstract The long term goal of this project is to be able to control the microstructure of directionally solidified eutectic alloys, through an improved understanding of the influence of convection. Prior experimental results on the influence of microgravity on the microstructure of fibrous eutectics have been contradictory.

Microstructure Development during Directional Solidification of Metallic Alloys 38 NPJSC Microgravity 9 10/14/15 AM. This is where G is the gravitational constant, M is the mass of the Earth, and R is.

The mixture is slow cooled, undergoing no change in state until it reaches temperature T2, where it starts to solidify at any favourable nucleation sites. Note that the alloy forms into "stripes" which are alternate layers of alpha and layers are often only of the order of 1 micron across and the reason that the eutectic forms in this way can be understood by considering the.

Processing of eutectics in a microgravity environment Experiments conducted so far under microgravity suggest that convection influences the solidification of an important class of materials termed eutectics.

L., Microgravity Quarterly,4, –), the influence of microgravity on eutectic. It is concluded that vigorous mechanical stirring coarsens the microstructure by altering the concentration field in front of the freezing interface.

Only one proposed mechanism is able to explain the observed influence of microgravity on the microstructure of fibrous by: 8. Eutectics grown from the melt give rise to homogeneous, highly-structured dense materials.

The basic microstructure of a regular eutectic consists of nonfaceted phases either single-crystal rods or lamellae embedded in a single-crystal matrix as depicted in Figures 1 and the simplest case of isotropic surface energy, fibers instead of lamellae are found for volume fractions of the.

The paper presents the findings of a research on the selection of methodology for revealing the microstructure in metallographic investigations on the example of the single-crystalline CMSX-4 nickel-based superalloy.

A set of chemical and electrochemical methods of etching has been selected. The metallographic specimens from the analyzed material have been treated with Author: Agnieszka Szczotok, Hannah Reichel.

The as-cast microstructure consists of α-Al dendrites, α-Al+Si eutectics and intermetallic phases (many phases can be possibly formed; binary (e.g., θ-Al 2 Cu, Mg 2 Si), ternary (e.g., β-Al 5 FeSi, Al 9 Fe 2 Si, Al 2 CuMg, Al 15 Mn 3 Si 2), or quaternary (e.g., α-Al 15 (MnFe) 3 Si 2, A l5 Mg 8 Si 6 Cu 2) [35,36,37]).

The eutectics is of a Cited by: 8. In Fig. 4, the change of the microstructure size of eutectics grown with different pulling rates:, 1, and 5 mm/min are shown. The eutectic microstructure decreases with increasing p.r. In addition, the microstructure is more regular with a more circular cross-section of the microrods with an increase of the pulling : Do Nam Binh, Park Sang In, Luu Van Tho.

To investigate templating inorganic eutectic materials, the researchers studied silver chloride-potassium chloride (AgCl-KCl). “The silver chloride-potassium chloride system was largely selected as a model system due to it forming a simple lamellar eutectic [material with layered structure] with a low (°C) melting point,” Braun and Kulkarni explain in an email.

1. Introduction. In grey cast iron, the carbon that exceeds the solubility in austenite precipitates as flake graphite [1]. According to Yin et al.,grey irons usually contain % to 4% C, 1% to 3% Si, and additions of manganese, depending on the desired microstructure (as low as % Mn in ferritic grey iron and as high as % in pearlitic grey iron) [2].Author: Seidu Ojo, Adama Sumaila, Onigbajumo Adetunji.
