How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Additively manufactured AISI 316 L stainless steel samples were heat treated at temperatures from 400 °C to 1100 °C, and the corrosion behavior in chloride environments was electrochemically studied. Heat treatments at 400 °C and 650 °C increased the grain size and the treatment at 1100 °C formed MnCr₂O₄ inclusions. Also, these postprocessing techn...
The effect of surface roughness on the corrosion behavior of 316L stainless steel manufactured by LPBF has been evaluated. The behavior of the steel in the as-built state was compared to that ground up to 2500 grade. Three different aggressive environments were used: 3.5 wt% NaCl water solution, 3 wt% H 2 SO 4 solution, and high-temperature oxidati...
Aluminum matrix composites reinforced with carbon fiber have been manufactured for the first time by infiltrating an A413 aluminum alloy in carbon fiber woven using high-pressure die casting (HPDC). Composites were manufactured with unidirectional carbon fibers and with 2 × 2 twill carbon wovens. The HPDC allowed full wetting of the carbon fibers a...
The presence of defects like porosity and lack of fusion can negatively affect the properties of the materials manufactured by Selective Laser Melting (SLM). The optimization of the manufacturing conditions allows reducing the number of defects, but there is a limit for each manufacturing material and process. To expand the manufacturing envelope,...
In additive manufacturing (AM), the technology and processing parameters are key elements that determine the characteristics of samples for a given material. To distinguish the effects of these variables, we used the same AISI 316L stainless steel powder with different AM techniques. The techniques used are the most relevant ones in the AM of metal...
La presente invención se refiere al campo de la fabricación de materiales compuestos de matriz metálica y refuerzo de fibra de carbono continua. Un material de este tipo se denomina en inglés un metal matrix composite (MMC).
El aluminio y sus aleaciones destacan por su conductividad térmica y buenas propiedades mecánicas, lo que, combinado con una baja densidad, alta resistencia ambiental y un coste razonable, hace que sean muy adecuados para múltiples aplicaciones. A pesar de ello, diferentes aplicaciones, como puede ser el caso de los sistemas de iluminación basados...
