Investigation of the Accelerated Thermal Aging Behavior of Polyetherimide and Lifetime Prediction at Elevated TemperatureDownload
Cho C., Nam S.L., de la Mata P.A., Harynuk J.J., Elias A., Chung H-J, Dolez P.I.
Fire-protective clothing are manufactured using heat and flame resistant fibers that are made of high-performance polymers. These polymers exhibit a gradual reduction in their performance after long-term exposure under various aging conditions. This study investigates the thermal aging behavior...
Effects of Solidification Thermal Parameters and Bi Doping on Silicon Size, Morphology and Mechanical Properties of Al 15wt.% Si 3.2wt.% Bi and Al 18wt.% Si 3.2wt.% Bi alloysDownload
Dias, M., Oliveira, R., Kakitani, R., Cheung, N., Henein, H., Spinelli, J.E., Garcia, A.
The use of bismuth (Bi) in aluminum (Al) industries is recognized as prime importance because of possible recycling as alloying element in special applications such as those enhancing machinability. The effects of Bi interaction on solidification progress as well as on the resulting...

Cubic metallic alloys generally grow along 〈100〉 directions due to the anisotropy of the solid-liquid interfacial energy. Under rapid solidification conditions, dendrites may deviate from 〈100〉 and develop unusual morphologies. Here, Al-alloy droplets (Al-4.5Cu, Al-10Si, Al-1.9Fe, Al-33Cu, all in...
A Hierarchical Constrained Reinforcement Learning for Optimization of Bitumen Recovery Rate in a Primary Separation VesselDownload
Shafi, Hareem, Velswamy, Kirubakaran, Ibrahim, Fadi, Huang,Biao
This work proposes a two-level hierarchical constrained control structure for reinforcement learning (RL) with application in a Primary Separation Vessel (PSV). The lower level is concerned with servo tracking and regulation of the interface level against variances in ore quality by manipulating...
State-of-the-art iridium-based catalysts for acidic water electrolysis: a minireview of wet-chemistry synthesis methodsDownload
Himanshi Dhawan, Natalia Semagina, Marc Secanell
With the increasing demand for clean hydrogen production, both as a fuel and an indispensable reagent for chemical industries, acidic water electrolysis has attracted considerable attention in academic and industrial research. Iridium is a well-accepted active and corrosion-resistant component of...

The dendrite growth velocity in Al75Ni25 melts has been measured in a containerless procedure as a function of undercooling using an electromagnetic levitation technique both in the Earth laboratory and in Space on board the International Space Station. The growth shows an anomalous behavior...
Valloton, J., Bogno, A.-A., Henein, H., Herlach, D.M., Sediako, D.
This paper reports on the undercooling and growth morphology of Al-4.5wt%Cu and Al-4.5wt%Cu-0.4wt%Sc with a focus on the effect of Sc addition. It is found that the addition of Sc reduces the undercoolings of both primary phase and eutectic. In addition, the morphology of the Al-4.5wt%Cu-0.4wt%Sc...
Bogno, A.-A., Henein, H., Ivey, D.G., Valloton, J., Reinhart, G., Sediako, D., Gallerneault, M.
This paper reports on the characterization of rapidly solidified Al-4.5 wt% Cu-xSc (x= 0.1, 0.2 or 0.4 wt %). The effect of micro-additions of Sc (up to 0.4 wt %) was examined through microstructural analysis of rapidly solidified, as well as aged samples, by means of electron microscopy, x-ray...
Preparative chromatography is an indispensable separation process in the food, pharmaceuticals and fine chemical industry. The aim of this work is to summarize developments in preparative chromatographic processes in the period 2009– 2012. Particular attention is paid to new developments in the...
