The Effects of Hydroxyapatite Addition on the Properties of the Mechanically Alloyed and Sintered Mg-RE-Zr Alloy

This paper discusses the influence of the chemical composition on the microstructure, mechanical and corrosion properties of mechanically alloyed and sintered (Mg-4Y-5.5Dy-0.5Zr)-x wt.% HA composites. Mechanical alloying for 25 h of the Mg-4Y-5.5Dy-0.5Zr composition, followed by sintering under argon at 550 °C for 2 h, led to the formation of a bulk alloy with an ultrafine grained ...

Prediction of the Functional Performance of Machined Components Based on Surface Topography: State of the Art

This survey overviews the functional performance of manufactured components produced by typical finishing machining operations in terms of their topographical characteristics. Surface topographies were characterized using both profile (2D) and 3D (areal) surface roughness parameters. The prediction of typical functional properties such as fatigue, friction, wear, bonding and ...

Viscosity and Electrical Conductivity of the Liquid Sn-3.8Ag-0.7Cu Alloy with Minor Co Admixtures

The viscosity and electrical conductivity as structure-sensitive transport properties of the liquid metals and alloys are important for modeling of the melting and solidification processes. The viscosity and electrical conductivity data provide additional information about the influence of impurities on the structure and physicochemical properties of the liquid metal matrix, which ...

On the Influence of Material Parameters in a Complex Material Model for Powder Compaction

Parameters in a complex material model for powder compaction, based on a continuum mechanics approach, are evaluated using real insert geometries. The parameter sensitivity with respect to density and stress after compaction, pertinent to a wide range of geometries, is studied in order to investigate completeness and limitations of the material model. Finite element simulations ...
