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 ...

The Role of Oxygen Transfer in Sintering of Low Alloy Steel Powder Compacts: A Review of the “Internal Getter” Effect

The chemical aspects of sintering have to be considered, in particular the role of oxygen. For sintered alloy steels used for highly stressed components, traditional alloy elements have been Cu, Ni and Mo, which in their oxygen affinity are very similar to the base constituent iron. Advanced alloying systems however contain Cr, Mn and/or Si. In the present study it is shown that ...

Precipitation Reactions in Age-Hardenable Alloys During Laser Additive Manufacturing

We describe and study the thermal profiles experienced by various age-hardenable alloys during laser additive manufacturing (LAM), employing two different manufacturing techniques: selective laser melting and laser metal deposition. Using scanning electron microscopy and atom probe tomography, we reveal at which stages during the manufacturing process desired and undesired ...

Sintering Trajectories: Description on How Density, Surface Area, and Grain Size Change

Sintering is a mainstay production step in forming metal, ceramic, polymer, and composite components from particles. Since the 1940s, the sintering process is treated using a matrix of mathematical relationships that include at least seven atomic transport mechanisms, several options on powder characteristics, and three pore–grain morphology options. The interplay of these ...
