  1. 1. Disordered Icosahedral Boron-Rich Solids A Theoretical Study of Thermodynamic Stability and Properties

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Annop Ektarawong; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Icosahedral boron-rich solids; Boron carbide; Configurational disorder; First-principles calculations; Thermodynamic stability; Superatom-special quasirandom structure;

    Abstract : This thesis is a theoretical study of configurational disorder in icosahedral boron-rich solids, in particular boron carbide, including also the development of a methodological framework for treating configurational disorder in such materials, namely superatom-special quasirandom structure (SA-SQS). In terms of its practical implementations, the SA-SQS method is demonstrated to be capable of efficiently modeling configurational disorder in icosahedral boron-rich solids, whiles the thermodynamic stability as well as the properties of the configurationally disordered icosahedral boron-rich solids, modeled from the SA-SQS method, can be directly investigated, using the density functional theory (DFT).

    Abstract : In vapour phase deposition, the knowledge and control of homogeneous and heterogeneous reactions in connection to precursor design may lead to the deposition of the desired material; structure or phase. This thesis is a document attempting to increase the knowledge of film growth in the B-N system. READ MORE

  5. 5. Effect of boron and hydrogen on microstructure and mechanical properties of cast Ti-6Al-4V

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Raghuveer Gaddam; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Titanium alloy; Metallography; Fractography; Castings; Low cycle fatigue; Hydrogen; Boron; Materials science - Construction materials; Teknisk materialvetenskap - Konstruktionsmaterial; Engineering Materials; Materialteknik;

    Abstract : Titanium and its alloys are widely used in applications ranging from aeroengines and offshore equipment to biomedical implants and sporting goods, owing to their high ratio of strength to density, excellent corrosion resistance, and biomedical compatibility. Among the titanium alloys used in aerospace, Ti-6Al-4V (an α+β alloy) is the most widely used, in applications in which the temperature may reach 350°C, at which point it retains good fatigue and fracture properties as well as moderate tensile strength and ductility.
