Article
First principles calculations were conducted on (HfTiWZr)B2 high entropy diboride (HEB) composition, which indicated a low formation energy and promising mechanical properties. The (HfTiWZr)B2 HEBs were synthesized from the constituent borides and elemental boron powders via high energy ball milling and spark plasma sintering. X-ray diffraction ana...
Article
In this study, an attempt has been made for tailoring the surface features of an 18 vol% porosity containing Ti-23Nb alloy manufactured via powder metallurgy method. The aim was enhancing the wear resistance without sacrificing the mechanical properties. For this purpose, porous Ti-23Nb alloys having hardness of 280 HV0.025 were subjected to therma...
Article
Wear behaviour of quenched and tempered (QT) hot work tool steels (Uddeholm QRO90) was investigated against SAE 52100 grade bearing steel balls after gas nitriding using a dedicated laboratory scale impact-sliding wear test rig. Gas nitriding was employed in a fluidized bed reactor under two alternative regimes: i. “High Temperature Nitriding (HTN)...
Conference Paper
Superalloys are used in a wide range of applications in aviation, aerospace and nuclear energy industries. Inconel 718 is a nickel-based superalloy that provides remarkable mechanical properties and surface stability at elevated temperatures. The surface of Inconel 718 can be modified by several techniques to further improve its surface properties...
Article
This work investigated the spark plasma sintering behavior of mechanochemically synthesized molybdenum silicide (MS) powders. Nanosized MS powders were obtained via a mechanochemical synthesis process applied to the initial MoO3-SiO2-Mg powder batches. Various characterization techniques such as X-ray diffraction (XRD), particle size analysis (PSA)...
Article
This study focuses on longitudinal cracks created within the weld seam of electric resistance welded steel pipes, after quenching and tempering processes. Results of the structural examinations conducted by utilizing optical microscope, energy-dispersive spectrometer equipped scanning electron microscope and X-ray diffractometer suggest that mangan...
Article
In the present work, the influence of alumina (Al2O3) and zirconia (ZrO2) incorporation on the structural properties and wear resistance of titania (TiO2) based micro-arc oxidation (MAO) coatings fabricated on Ti6Al4V alloy was studied. For this purpose MAO was employed in a silicate-based electrolyte with and without additions of Al2O3 and ZrO2 pa...
Conference Paper
In metal forming process, improving mechanical and surface properties of tool steels has been significant issue, since the productivity is mainly related with the service life of tools. In order to enhance service life of tools, wear is the most challenging problem to tackle due to its detrimental effects on surface and dimensional characteristics...
Conference Paper
Magnesium and its alloys are attractive lightweight materials for the applications of aerospace, chemistry, biomedical, automotive, electronic, and communication industries. Although, magnesium and its alloys exhibit low density and high strength/weight ratio, their applications are broadly limited due to their very low corrosion resistance especia...

The heat-treated AlSi7Mg0.3 alloy is the standard wheel alloy as it offers the best compromise between fatigue strength and elongation. Alloys with less than 7 wt% Si may also be of interest for the manufacture of aluminium wheels to limit Si poisoning that impairs grain refinement. Hence, the potential of AlSi5Mg0.3 alloy was investigated as it co...
Conference Paper
Al7Si0.3Mg alloy has been widely used in the manufacture of light alloy wheels with the low pressure die casting method. Grain refinement of the wheel alloys offers significant improvement of the mechanical properties owing to improved melt feeding. Although the grain refiner Al-Ti-B alloy shows great performance on wrought aluminium alloys, it is...
