Hierarchical Model for the Analysis of Scattering Data of Complex Materials

Interpreting the results of scattering data for complex materials with a hierarchical structure in which at least one phase is amorphous presents a significant challenge. Often the interpretation relies on the use of large-scale molecular dynamics (MD) simulations, in which a structure is hypothesized and from which a radial distribution function (RDF) can be extracted and directly ...

Multifaceted Material Substitution: The Case of NdFeB Magnets, 2010–2015

Substitution is an important response for material users when faced with disruption to the availability or price of an essential material. In economic terms, substitution refers to the ability of firms to alter their patterns of material use in response to exogenous market shocks. Substitution comes in different forms which vary from situation to situation. This paper uses expert ...

Additive Manufacturing of High-Entropy Alloys by Laser Processing

This contribution concentrates on the possibilities of additive manufacturing of high-entropy clad layers by laser processing. In particular, the effects of the laser surface processing parameters on the microstructure and hardness of high-entropy alloys (HEAs) were examined. AlCoCrFeNi alloys with different amounts of aluminum prepared by arc melting were investigated and compared ...

Heterogeneous Nb-Based Nuclei for the Grain Refinement of Al-Si Alloys

Nb-based intermetallics are, generally, low-density high-temperature materials used for structural applications or cryogenic superconductors. In this work, we report the development of an Al(96)-Nb(2)-B(2) master alloy where in situ-formed micrometric Nb-based intermetallics (i.e. NbB2 and Al3Nb) are used for a completely different purpose: to promote the refinement of Al-Si alloys ...

Atomistic Modeling of Thermal Conductivity of Epoxy Nanotube Composites

The Green–Kubo method was used to investigate the thermal conductivity as a function of temperature for epoxy/single wall carbon nanotube (SWNT) nanocomposites. An epoxy network of DGEBA-DDS was built using the ‘dendrimer’ growth approach, and conductivity was computed by taking into account long-range Coulombic forces via a k-space approach. Thermal conductivity was calculated in ...

Predicting Mesoscale Microstructural Evolution in Electron Beam Welding

Using the kinetic Monte Carlo simulator, Stochastic Parallel PARticle Kinetic Simulator, from Sandia National Laboratories, a user routine has been developed to simulate mesoscale predictions of a grain structure near a moving heat source. Here, we demonstrate the use of this user routine to produce voxelized, synthetic, three-dimensional microstructures for electron-beam welding ...
