Thermal Aging Phenomena in Cast Duplex Stainless Steels

Cast stainless steels (CASSs) have been extensively used for the large components of light water reactor (LWR) power plants such as primary coolant piping and pump casing. The thermal embrittlement of CASS components is one of the most serious concerns related to the extended-term operation of nuclear power plants. Many past researches have concluded that the formation of Cr-rich ...

Cross-Permeability of the Semisolid Region in Directional Solidification: A Combined Phase-Field and Lattice-Boltzmann Simulation Approach

Based on the results of microstructure simulations, fluid flow through the semisolid region during directional solidification of the technical Ni-base alloy 718 has been studied. Three-dimensional microstructures at different positions in the semisolid region were obtained by using a multicomponent multiphase-field model that was online coupled to a commercial thermodynamic ...

The Influence of the Melt-Pouring Temperature and Inoculant Content on the Macro and Microstructure of the IN713C Ni-Based Superalloy

The aim of this work was to determine the effect of melt-pouring temperature T m and inoculant (cobalt aluminate—CoAl2O4) concentration in the prime coat of the shell mold on the macro- and microstructure of the IN713C superalloy. The results show that cobalt aluminate is an effective modifier of the IN713C superalloy, which causes refinement of the equiaxed grains (EX) and a ...

Revisiting (Some of) the Lasting Impacts of the Liberty Ships via a Metallurgical Analysis of Rivets from the SS “John W. Brown”

During World War II, 2710 Liberty ships were built in the United States across 18 ship yards. The rate of production of these ships was at a scale not previously witnessed, reflecting a strategic marshaling of national assets critical to the war effort. For the metallurgist, metallurgical engineer, or materials scientist, these ships also struck commanding images regarding their ...

Functional and Selective Bacterial Interfaces Using Cross-Scaffold Gold Binding Peptides

We investigated the functional and selective activity of three phage-derived gold-binding peptides on the Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacterial cell surface display scaffold (eCPX) for the first time. Gold-binding peptides, p3-Au12 (LKAHLPPSRLPS), p8#9 (VSGSSPDS), and Midas-2 (TGTSVLIATPYV), were compared side-by-side through experiment and simulation. All exhibited strong binding ...
