  1. 1. Characteristics of cast aluminium-silicon alloys : microstructures and mechanical properties

    Author : Salem Seifeddine; Birger Karlsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Aluminium; Mocrostructure; Porosity; Tensile properties; Modelling; Chemical process and manufacturing engineering; Kemisk process- och produktionsteknik; Aluminium; microstructure; porosity; tensile properties; modelling.; Materials science; Teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : Applications of aluminium alloys are spreading in many industrial fields due to the excellent combination of castability, mechanical performance and lightness assured by such material. This project aims to establish a methodology in bringing the foundry process closer to the casting designer, and thereby leading to a more reliable and more optimised design. READ MORE

  2. 2. Mechanical Properties of Gamma Titanium Aluminides

    Author : Viktor Recina; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : microstructure; intermetallic compound; tensile properties; diffusion bonding; sample preparation; low cycle fatigue; fractography; gamma titanium aluminide; mechanical properties;

    Abstract : In recent years intermetallic compounds have attracted a great deal of attention as structural materials. Among the intermetallics, gamma titanium aluminides (.gamma.-TiAl) are considered to be closest to application. READ MORE

  3. 3. Heat treatment of Al-Si-Cu-Mg casting alloys

    Author : Emma Sjölander; Salem Seifeddine; Ingvar Svensson; Sten Johansson; Högskolan i Jönköping; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Cast aluminium alloys; Heat treatment; Solution treatment; Artificial ageing; Tensile properties; Plastic deformation; Microstructure; Modelling; Plastic Deformation; Tensile Properties; Heat Treatment; Solution Treatment; Artificial Ageing;

    Abstract : Environmental savings can be made by increasing the use of aluminium alloys in the automotive industry as the vehicles can be made lighter. Increasing the knowledge about the heat treatment process is one task in the direction towards this goal. The aim of this work is to investigate and model the heat treatment process for Al-Si casting alloys. READ MORE

  4. 4. Local variability in chemical and physical properties of spruce wood fibers

    Author : Anna Bergander; KTH; []
    Keywords : cell walls; chemical composition; elastic constants; elastic strength; Fiber properties; Fibril angles; Mathematical models; Microscopy techniques; Picea Abies; Stiffness; Tensile properties; Wood polymers; Wood;

    Abstract : Wood is well known to be a heterogeneous native materialwith large variations in its composite properties, includingvariations whose origins have not yet been completelyidentified. Traditionally, the macroscopic variations in woodhave received the most attention; for example, the variation indensity from the pith to the bark in trees. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cellulose Nanofibril Networks and Composites : Preparation, Structure and Properties

    Author : Marielle Henriksson; Lars Berglund; Alain Dufresne; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; cellulose nanocomposites; microfibrillated cellulose; nanofibrils; biofibers; mechanical properties; deformation mechanisms; molar mass; endoglucanase; Materials science; Teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : Träbaserade cellulosananofibriller är intressanta som förstärkande fas i polymera nanokompositer; detta främst på grund av den kristallina cellulosans höga styvhet och på grund av nanofibrillernas förmåga att bilda nätverk. Cellulosananofibriller kan användas i form av mikrokristallin cellulosa, MCC, som har lågt längd/diameter förhållande, eller i form av mikrofibrillerad cellulosa, MFC, med högt längd/diameter förhållande.
