Abstract: Laser as a source of focused energy may be applied for the modification of microstructure and/or composition of the near surface region of a component. The technique may be applied for the development of a ceramic/intermetallics/interstitial compound dispersed metal matrix composite layer on the surface of metallic substrate by melting the substrate with a high power laser and simultaneous addition of alloy powders for the development of metal matrix composite layer by in-situ reactions. In the present contribution, development of metal-dispersed and intermetallic-dispersed matrix composite layer on the surface of metallic matrix has been discussed with a suitable example of its application.

Abstract: Si3N4-Si2N2O-TiN composite ceramics were in-situ fabricated by using following reactions of (1) 3TiO2 + Si3N4 → 3TiN + 3SiO2 + N2 and (2) Si3N4+ SiO2 → 2Si2N2O. The mixed powder of α-Si3N4, Al2O3, Y2O3 and TiO2 was hot-pressed at 24 MPa and 1800°-1900°C for 1-4 h in N2. Sintered composite ceramics were characterized by XRD, SEM, TEM, four-point bending test and Vickers indentation method. XRD results and TEM observation showed that TiN and amorphous SiO2 were formed at 1250°C by the reaction (1), and the Si2N2O phase formed by reaction (2) above 1800°C. Si3N4-Si2N2O-TiN composites consisted of ≥2 m sized Si2N2O grains with TiN and Si3N4 grains. Hardness and fracture strength of the composites were comparable to those of Si2N2O ceramics, with fracture toughness being improved at 5vol% TiN containing composites.

Abstract: A method of arc surfacing with a consumable electrode and a flux-cored wire containing titanium nitride micro-and nanoparticles added to the weld pool was developed. The influence of the modifier on the structure and properties of the deposited coatings was studied.

Abstract: Generally, solution nitriding (nitrogen permeation) is not applied to ferritic stainless steel, which has low nitrogen solubility in the ferrite phase. This study has investigated phase changes, nitride precipitations and hardness variations of Fe-11Cr-0.1Ti (409L) ferritic stainless steel following nitrogen permeation and tempering heat treatments. The strong affinity between nitrogen and Ti enabled the permeation of nitrogen to 409L ferritic stainless steel. The nitrogen-permeated surface changed to a martensitic phase with a hardness range of between 520 and 585Hv, depending on the nitrogen permeation temperature and time, while the surface nitrogen content was about 0.04%~0.05%. When tempering the NPSA (solution annealing after nitrogen permeation) treated specimen at 450 °C, a maximum hardness of 550Hv was obtained, probably due to the precipitation of very fine rod and square type titanium nitrides, while the minimum hardness of 365Hv was obtained at a tempering temperature of 650°C, owing to the precipitation of coarse TiN.

Abstract: The low hardness and poor tribological performance of titanium alloys restrict their wide applications in automotive fields. Nitriding is widely used to improve tribological properties, wear resistance, and corrosion resistance of steel and titanium alloys. Plasma nitriding is becoming increasingly popular because of its high nitrogen potential, short treatment time, and low environmental impact. Recently, considerable interest has been devoted to alternative nitriding methods such as active screen plasma nitriding (ASPN). In this study, a Ti-6Al-4V titanium alloy was nitrided by ASPN using a titanium double screen in order to investigate the effect of applying the double screen on the microstructure of the nitriding layer. The Ti-6Al-4V sample was placed on the sample stage in a cathodic potential. A titanium double screen was mounted on the cathodic stage around the sample stage. The sample was treated for 1-25 hours at 600oC under 200 Pa in 75% N2 + 25% H2 atmosphere. After nitriding, glow discharge optical emission spectroscopy (GD-OES) revealed that the thickness of the nitriding layer composed of TiN tended to increase with increasing the nitriding time. The Vickers microhardness of the sample surface nitrided for 25 hours reached approximately 1300 HV. Ball-on-disk wear test revealed that a wear loss of nitrided sample considerably decreased than that of untreated sample.
