This study used non-intrusive, optical based measurement techniques in a parametric study of a flash atomized jet. The bench scale water spray was operated at pressure ratios ranging from 6.80-17.0 and degrees of superheat of 20-80 °C. This broad range of parameters allowed for the evaluation of...
This paper investigates amorphous phase formation and rapid solidification characteristics of a CoCr alloy. High cooling rate and high undercooling-induced rapid solidification of the alloy was achieved by impulse atomization in helium atmosphere. Two atomization experiments were carried out to...
Addition of Sc to Al-Cu is reported to be responsible for a high precipitation hardening upon heat treatment and serves as a good grain refiner. However, Scandium is presently very expensive, therefore, getting maximum benefit from a minimum addition would be economically of value. This work...
EFFECTS OF SCANDIUM ON HYPO-EUTECTIC ALUMINUM COPPER MICROSTRUCTURES UNDER LOW SOLIDIFICATION RATE CONDITIONSDownload
This work addresses the microstructures and mechanical properties of Al-4.5 wt% Cu alloys containing 0.1, 0.2 and 0.4 wt% Sc that were solidified under low cooling rate conditions (< 1ºC/s) and then heat treated. The samples were solidified in a differential scanning calorimeter before being heat...
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...
Estimation of Droplet Size and Temperature at which Solidification starts in a Drop Tube-Impulse System.Download
D2 tool steel powders were produced using a drop tube-impulse atomization technique. In order to measure the radiant energy and droplet size of atomized D2 steel droplets, DPV-2000 (Tecnar Automation Ltée, St. Hubert Quebec, Canada) was utilized. In-situ velocity and droplet size of the atomized...
The objective of this thesis was to develop a novel understanding of the mechanics of two phase gas-liquid flows and sprays injected through industrial effervescent nozzles. This was done using detailed experimental investigations and scaling for two-phase flows and sprays. This study helps to...
