A mathematical model to capture complex microstructure orientation on insect wings.
Microstructures on insect wings can promote directional drop shedding, and the local orientation of these structures is expected to facilitate drop removal. However, microstructures may exhibit very different orientations at different locations on the wing. Using the march fly Penthetria...
Advanced methods in Glancing Angle Deposition to control thin film morphology, microstructure and textureDownload
Structuring of material on the nanoscale is enabling new functional materials and improving existing technologies. Glancing angle deposition (GLAD) is a physical vapor deposition technique that enables thin film fabrication with engineered columnar structures on the (10 to 100) nm scales. In this...
Comprehensive study of the abrasive wear and slurry erosion behavior of an expanded system of high chromium cast iron and microstructural modification for enhanced wear resistanceDownload
High chromium cast irons (HCCIs) have been demonstrated to be an effective material for a wide range of applications in aggressive environments, where resistances to abrasion, erosion and erosion-corrosion are required. For instance, machinery and facilities used in mining and extraction in...
Development of a yogurt powder formulation that can produce a recombined product with physicochemical and rheological properties similar to those found in commercial Greek-style yogurtsDownload
Greek yogurt (GY) is known as strained or concentrated form with total solids (TS) of at least 22.0% and 14.3% for full and fat free, respectively. TS are increased, in traditional GY, by “draining off” whey after milk fermentation by typical mixture of yogurt bacteria. Current studies were...
Micro-modeling and study of the impact of microstructure on the performance of solid oxide fuel cell electrodesDownload
As the demand for green energy and fuel cells grows, more attention is drawn towards Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs). Random and complex structure of composite electrodes and underlying electrochemical process has not been completely unveiled yet and further study is required to acquire more...
This thesis deals with the mechanisms of microstructure development in polymer blends. Much work has been performed on the breakup process of immiscible systems where the dispersed phase is suspended inside another matrix. The fluids used were polymer melts or model viscoelastic fluids, and the...
Grade 91 steel is one of the most important 9-12% Cr creep strength enhanced ferritic (CSEF) steels used in fossil-fuel fired power plants. A narrow heat-affected zone with heterogeneous structures is generated in the base metal, due to non-equilibrium phase transformations during the arc welding...
Microstructure and Mechanical Characterization of Rapidly Solidified Cr-C Tool Steel - Annealing EffectsDownload
The effect of isochronal annealing on D2 tool steel powder, rapidly solidified via both Impulse Atomization and Water Atomization, has been evaluated using high-resolution scanning electron microscopy and Vickers microhardness. The amount of supersaturation of the alloying elements inside the...
The microstructures and performance of Ni-based alloys and Ni-WC (nickel-tungsten carbide) composite overlays deposited by plasma transferred arc welding have been studied. The Ni-alloy overlays had similar microstructures consisting of Ni dendrites, with interdendritic Ni-based eutectics,...
This thesis presents work performed to model and measure the effect of run-out table cooling on a thick walled X70 steel. During run-out table cooling, the steel undergoes several phase transformations that will affect its microstructure, and thus, its mechanical properties. To predict the steel...
