Abstract: Different amounts of fiber added samples were prepared by standard ceramic processing routes and sintered at different temperatures. Although powder packing characteristics of the matrix material were negatively affected with increasing fiber content; certain improvements were observed for the density, MOR and water absorption values both for green and sintered states. Fracture surfaces of the samples after three-point bending test were investigated via detailed SEM observations and phase analyses were performed by XRD measurements. It is found that phase transformation controlled fiber-matrix integration starts with increasing sintering temperature and degree of bonding between fiber/matrix interfaces can be arranged by selecting optimum sintering temperature. Aluminosilicate fiber addition was found efficient for improving mechanical properties of clay-kaolin matrix and the mechanism of the improvement can be grouped into two categories i.e. (1) brittle fiber – brittle matrix interactions via well known pulled-out, crack deflection and bridging mechanisms prior to fiber-matrix integration (2) further densification via phase transformation controlled fiber-matrix integration after high sintering temperatures.

Abstract: In this study, mixtures of 25 wt.% of tantalum carbide (TaC) and iron (Fe) or nickel (Ni) powders were mechanical alloyed against time in order to investigate the interactions between the reinforcement (harder TaC particles) and surrounding ductile metallic matrixes (Fe and Ni). After mechanical alloying, apparent densities and particle size and distribution (PSD) of the powders were measured and morphological observations were realized via scanning electron microscopy (SEM). X-ray diffraction (XRD) was applied for phase analysis and with increasing mechanical alloying time certain shifts were observed for the two theta values of the samples. These data used for characterization of strain rates and crystallite sizes by fundamentals parameters approach applied with Lorentzian function and Williamson-Hall plot analysis.

Abstract: Fe-14 Mn-6 Si-9 Cr-5 Ni (mass. %) shape memory alloys (SMAs) were produced from raw powders employed both in initial commercial state and in a mixture state of equal fractions of commercial and mechanically alloyed (MA’d) particles. After blending, pressing and sintering, powder compacts were hot rolled (HR’d) and solution treated (ST’d) before being machined into plane-parallel lamellas. Specimens with special geometry were pre-strained on a tensile testing machine. By means of X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) the presence of ε hexagonal close packed and α’ body center cubic stress induced martensites was revealed and their thermally induced reversion to γ face center cubic austenite was evaluated by modulated differential scanning calorimetry (MDSC). The results enabled the study of the influence of MA, HR, ST and pre-straining on phase structure and associated on shape memory effect (SME). The lamellas were hot formed into rings, which were trained in bending. Diameter reduction of trained enlarged rings, on heating, was monitored by cinematographic analysis.
