    ABSTRACT: The structure, durometric properties, wear resistances, and corrosive dissolution of composite chromium coatings modified with nanodimensional carbon-containing additives and treated with nitrogen ions are investigated. It is demonstrated that addition of nanodimensional carbon-containing particles to the deposition electrolyte leads to dispersion of the crystal structure of the coatings. This is accompanied by their hardening and increase in the wear and corrosion resistances. When the composite chromium coatings are treated by nitrogen ions, nitrided layers are formed containing Cr2N and CrN nitrides. It is demonstrated that ion-beam nitriding of the composite chromium coatings provides relatively higher concentration of nitrogen in the layer compared to the conventional chromium coating. Formation of the nitride layer on the surface of the composite chromium coating leads to an increase in its microhardness and additional decrease by 24% of the rate of corrosive dissolution of the coatings. Softening of the chromium substrate during ion-beam nitriding causes a decrease in the wear resistance of the composite chromium coatings under conditions of friction without lubricant.

    ABSTRACT: The interrelation among the structural features, martensitic transformation characteristics, and physical-mechanical properties of functional titanium nickelide-based TN–10, TN–20, and TN–1V alloys is investigated. Martensitic transformations in a TN–10 alloy at temperatures of 273 and 298 K are found to develop at lower martensite shear stresses than in TN–20 and TN–1V alloys. This is due to the internal structure formed in the production of the material. The degree of ultimate strain and the magnitude of ultimate stress for each of the alloys depend on the state of the matrix at a pre-assigned deformation temperature and on the contribution of the martensitic transformation mechanisms of deformation under applied load. The structure formed and the plastic component of deformation are shown to exert a dramatic effect on the type and characteristics of fracture.

    ABSTRACT: It has been shown that steepest descent trajectories on an isosurface of the scalar field or of fluctuations of the scalar curvature can serve as the geometric skeleton of galaxies, these trajectories simultaneously being isolines of the isosurface. Isolines and isosurfaces can generate matter via the mechanism of spontaneous emission of the Lemaître–Friedmann primordial atom. Steepest descent trajectories on an isosurface of fluctuations of the scalar curvature can also serve as the skeleton of quantum inhomogeneities of the density in GTR.

    ABSTRACT: A fulfillment of Curie’s law in magnetic fluids provides an option of their thermometric applications to measure thermodynamic temperature. On the other hand, it was shown elsewhere that the initial magnetic susceptibility χ of magnetic fluids follows Curie–Weiss’s law rather than Curie’s law. To obtain its values, use was made of the formula χ = М/Н0, where М is magnetization, and Н0 is the external magnetic field strength without any specimen. This work deals with investigations of the dependence of magnetic susceptibility of magnetic fluid on temperature for the cases where its values are found via the following formulas: 1) χ = М/Н0, and 2) χ = Мμ0/В, where В is the magnetic field induction inside the specimen. It is found that in the first case the temperature dependence of χ obeys Curie–Weiss’s law while in the second case – Curie’s law. The reason for this results from the fact that induction В acting on the particles of magnetic fluid is noticeably higher than that of the external field, В0.

    ABSTRACT: Dependences of the coercive force of samples of St3-grade steel (with chemical composition Fe-0.324C-0.187Si-0.457Mn-0.026Cr-0.029Cu-0.008Co) during elastic and plastic tensile deformation are investigated. It is demonstrated that in the region of small deformations, plastic deformation is non-uniform over the length of the operating part of the sample. For well-annealed steel, the dependences of the coercive force on the elastic sample deformation became reversible, and for plastically deformed steel, a hysteresis is observed that increases with the degree of plastic deformation of the samples. Possible reasons for the hysteresis of the dependence of the coercive force on the elastic cyclic tensile deformations are discussed.

    ABSTRACT: Using molecular dynamics simulations, the energies of formation and migration of vacancies and interstitial atoms in the ordered CuPt and CuPt3 alloys are estimated. The energy-favorable configurations of the interstitial atoms are determined. In CuPt, high diffusion anisotropy is revealed during migration of an interstitial atom: in the ordered CuPt alloys it generally migrates along (111) planes containing Cu atoms.

    ABSTRACT: The precession of the perihelion of Mercury’s orbit in the gravitational field of the Sun and planets has been numerically modeled within the framework of Newton’s law of universal gravitation. The calculations were performed with enhanced calculational accuracy and with an iteration step of 0.0005 s. It has been shown that the average precession of Mercury’s orbit after 100 years within the framework of Newton’s law of universal gravitation comprises +553''. This is 21'' greater than the generally accepted value of +532''.

    ABSTRACT: Optical ceramics activated by neodymium or ytterbium and based on Y2O3 with inclusions of CeO2 , ZrO2 , and HfO2 containing optical inhomogeneities in the form of an orange peel are investigated. It is indicated that in the ceramics with such inclusions not only the crystallite size and porosity, but also the transmission near the edge of the fundamental absorption band decrease, and the theoretically predicted transparency is not achieved (even in the infrared range). It is reported that in the ceramics containing Hf 4+ and Zr4+ , Hf 3+ and Zr3+ , additionally depopulating the 4 F 3/2 upper laser level of the Nd3+ ion activator, are also present. The dependences of the Nd:Y2O3 crystal lattice parameter on the Hf 4+ or Nd3+ content in it, constructed based on the results of x-ray diffraction analysis, are linear, that is, no peculiarities are observed for solid solutions of these compounds. Energy dispersion analysis with a resolution of about 1 μm also indicates the uniformity of the distribution of the chemical elements throughout the sample. At the same time, estimates based on the Rayleigh light scattering in the ceramics indicate that one of the additional phases must have sizes smaller than λ/20 = 20 nm. By the method of high-resolution transmission electron microscopy, particles with composition modulated on the nanolevel are detected in the 90(Nd0.01Y0.99)2O3 + 10HfO2 nanopowder from which the ceramics are synthesized given that the lattice period remains unchanged.

    ABSTRACT: Quantum mechanism of interlayer polarization in condensed media in an alternating electric field at low and ultralow temperatures is studied. The nonstationary Liouville equation is solved jointly with the stationary Schrödinger equation and operator Poisson equation without taking into account the proton-proton and proton-phonon interaction. The nonequilibrium density matrix is calculated for an ensemble of non-interacting protons moving in a one-dimensional multi-well potential relief of rectangular shape in an alternating polarizing field. With the help of the non-stationary density matrix, anomalous effects associated with the displacement of the low-temperature maximum of the angle of tangent of dielectric loss in the layered crystals to the temperature of liquid helium are investigated. The results of quantum-mechanical calculations of the complex dielectric permittivity spectra (SCDP) can be used to study the tunneling mechanism of spontaneous polarization in ferroelectrics (KDP, DKDP).

    ABSTRACT: Stepped kinetics of deformation of alloys by pulsed pressure from an expanding plasma channel has been observed. On the deformation curves there are time intervals during which deformation does not vary, and these intervals shorten closer to the central cross sections of the wave source. This is explained by the shockwave nature of pressure transfer. A connection between the parameters of the discharge circuit and the pulsed pressure at the wave front of the expanding plasma channel is established enabling a quantitative estimate with allowance for the dynamic viscosity of the metal.

    ABSTRACT: Experimental results of investigations into the transformation of the spectral and spatial characteristics of femtosecond collimated and focused Ti:Sa-laser beams with wavelengths of 800 and 400 nm upon filamentation in continuous liquid media are presented. It is shown that broadening of the laser pulse spectrum due to phase self-modulation in the medium with a cubic nonlinearity depends on the pulse power and beam diameter. Dependences of the number of filaments, width of laser radiation spectrum, nonlinear focusing distance, and diameter of the filamentation region on the laser pulse power are measured. The existence of a relative power interval in which the explosive growth of the number of filaments occurs, is established.

    ABSTRACT: An experimental study of the process of mechanical activation (MA) of a nickel and titanium powder mixture has been carried out. It is revealed that the MA time significantly affects the physical-chemical and structural transformations of the grinded mixture. The reason for such an effect is the change of the composition and structure of the layered agglomerates formed during MA from the mixture components. The kinetic constant characterizing the rate of growth of the interphase surface in the agglomerates during mechanical treatment of the powder mixture is estimated using the method of inverse problem. Theoretical calculations of the layer thickness and interphase surface in the agglomerate are carried out.

    ABSTRACT: A method of bistatic multipositional wave tomography is proposed that is applicable both for the case of radio-wave sensing and for the case of ultrasonic sounding. A sensing system is considered in which the transmitter and the receiver are displaced independently in a plane above the investigated object. To acquire three-dimensional radio-wave images of scattering objects, the measurement data are processed by the method of spatial matched filtering. The possibility of achieving range resolution even when using monochromatic signals is demonstrated. Results of numerical modeling and experimental studies are presented.

    ABSTRACT: The strain hysteresis is a consequence of energy dissipation during martensitic transformations in titanium nickelide upon mechanical loading. The main reasons for the hysteresis are the processes of entropy production in the transformation cycle during heat liberation and absorption. On an example of TN-1V and Ti50Ni40Cu10 alloys, the influence of accumulation of crystallographic defects on the evolution of the hysteresis loop is demonstrated during multiple martensitic transformation cycling.
