  1. 1. Phase field modeling of Spinodal decomposition in TiAlN

    Author : Jennifer Ullbrand; Magnus Odén; Bo Jansson; Lars Hultman; Joakim Odqvist; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : TiAlN  thin  films  are  used  commercially  in  the  cutting  tool  industry  as  wear protection  of  the  inserts.  During  cutting,  the  inserts  are  subjected  to  high temperatures (~ 900  ° C and sometimes higher). The  objective of this work is to simulate the material behavior at such high temperatures. READ MORE

  2. 2. Modelling phase separation in Fe-Cr alloys : A continuum approach

    Author : Thomas Barkar; John Ågren; Nele Moelans; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Phase separation; spinodal decomposition; nucleation; diffusion; thermodynamics; kinetics; steel; ferritic;

    Abstract : The formation of Cr-rich and Fe-rich domains upon ageing of an initially homogeneous Fe-Cr alloy at elevated temperatures (300-600 ºC) is commonly referred to as phase separation. The behaviour originates from a miscibility gap in the Fe-Cr phase diagram. READ MORE

  3. 3. Thermodynamic and Kinetic Investigation of the Fe-Cr-Ni System Driven by Engineering Applications

    Author : Wei Xiong; Malin Selleby; John Ågren; Byeong-Joo Lee; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; phase transformation; magnetism; spinodal decomposition; stainless steel; low temperature CALPHAD; phase field; ab initio; atom probe tomography; calorimetry; SRA - E-vetenskap SeRC ; SRA - E-Science SeRC ; SRA - Energy; SRA - Energi;

    Abstract : This work is a thermodynamic and kinetic study of the Fe-Cr-Ni system as the core of stainless steels. The Fe-Cr, Fe-Ni and Cr-Ni systems were studied intensively using both computational and experimental techniques, including CALPHAD (CALculation of PHAse Diagrams), phase field simulation, ab initio modeling, calorimetry, and atom probe tomography.

  4. 4. Nanostructuring and Age Hardening in TiSCN, ZrAlN, and TiAlN Thin Films

    Author : Lars Johnson; Lars Hultman; Axel Flink; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : thin films; age hardening; spinodal decomposition; TiSiCN; ZrAlN; TiAlN; Transmission electron microscopy; Atom probe tomography; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : This thesis explores nanostructuring in TiSiCN, ZrAlN, and TiAlN thin films deposited by cathodic arc evaporation onto cemented carbide substrates, with intended applications for cutting tools. The three systems were found to exhibit age hardening upon annealing, by different mechanisms, into the superhard regime (≥30 GPa), as determined by a combination of electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, atom probe tomography, erda, and nanoindentation tech- niques.

  5. 5. Effects of Irradiation and Thermal Ageing on the Nanoscale Chemistry of Steel Welds

    Author : Kristina Lindgren; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; spinodal decomposition; thermal ageing; low alloy steel; reactor pressure vessel; irradiation damage; atom probe tomography; core barrel; clustering;

    Abstract : Structural materials of nuclear power plants degrade during operation due to thermal ageing and irradiation from the reactor core. Effects on the materials are an increase in hardness and tensile strength, and a decrease in ductility and fracture toughness, i. e. embrittlement. READ MORE
