Microstructure and Mechanical Properties of Electrodeposited Nickel and its Particle-Reinforced Nanocomposite


Article Preview

There are two types of experimental material used – pure nickel and its nano-composite reinforced with nano-sized SiO2. These materials were produced by TU Clausthal, Germany. The results have shown that the creep resistance of the nickel nano-composite reinforced with nanosized SiO2 particles is higher in comparison with non-reinforced nickel. The mechanism responsible for creep behaviour is the dislocation creep at 293 K and at elevated temperatures the dislocation creep is controlled by grain boundary sliding.
