  1. 1. On high temperature oxidation resistance : Towards the materials genome of high temperature alloys

    Author : Samuel Hallström; John Ågren; Roger Reed; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Materials Science and Engineering; Teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : The efficiency of a heat engine increases with increasing service temperature. This leads to a demand for material that can withstand aggressive environments and sometimes also high load at higher and higher temperature. That is the rationale for the work of this thesis. READ MORE

  2. 2. High temperature galling : influencing parameters and mechanisms

    Author : Leonardo Pelcastre; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Machine Elements; Maskinelement; Centre - Centre for High Performance Steel CHS ; Centrumbildning - Centrum för högpresterande stål CHS ;

    Abstract : Damage of forming tools at elevated temperatures is a major problem in metal forming processes such as hot stamping. Of special importance is the occurrence of adhesion and gross material transfer from the work-piece to the tool surface, a phenomenon known as galling. READ MORE

  3. 3. High-Temperature Corrosion-Fatigue of Cast Alloys for Exhaust Manifolds

    Author : Shengmei Xiang; Joakim Odqvist; Baohua Zhu; Johan Ahlström; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; High temperature; corrosion fatigue; low-cycle fatigue; cast alloys; high-temperature oxidation; intermetallic phase; Materials Science and Engineering; Teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : The introduction of gas-driven Otto engine and the corresponding usage of bio-fuels in heavy-duty engines will render the exhaust atmosphere more corrosive and bring a higher working temperature to exhaust manifolds. The current service material, a ferritic ductile cast iron called SiMo51, will soon meet its upper temperature limit set by the ferrite-austenite transformation at 860ºC. READ MORE

  4. 4. High temperature corrosion in biomass-fired energy applications : Alloying effects and test environment comparisons

    Author : Ragna Elger; Rachel Pettersson; Inger Odnevall Wallinder; Rikard Norling; Gordon Tatlock; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; High temperature corrosion; biomass; waste; superheater corrosion; austenitic steel; biomass gasification; alumina-forming austenitic stainless steel; thermodynamic modelling; kinetic modelling; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : To reduce the greenhouse effect, the use of renewable fuel has to be increased. As renewable fuel has different characteristics compared to fossil fuel regarding content of trace metals, alkali, chlorine and sulphur, the corrosion characteristics in high temperature energy processes have to be evaluated.

  5. 5. High Temperature Wear Processes

    Author : Sinuhe Hernandez; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Maskinelement; Machine Elements;

    Abstract : Moving machine assemblies are increasingly exposed to extreme operating conditions involving high temperatures owing to demands on higher power densities, high performance/efficiency and extreme environments. The changes in surface and near surface properties of contacting surfaces caused by exposure to high temperature and deformation govern the occurrence of friction, wear and material transfer of the tribological system.
