Residual microstructures associated with hypervelocity impact craters in 55 vol.% TiB(2)/2024Al composite were investigated by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM). TiB(2)-Al interface, TiB(2) particles and Al matrix before and after hypervelocity impact were compared to discuss the effect of hypervelocity impact. A new Al(x)O(1-x) phase with the fcc structure and the crystal parameter of 0.69 nm was formed at TiB(2)-Al interface. Stacking fault with width of 10-20 nm was formed along the (001) plane of TiB(2) particle. Formation of nanograins (≈ 100 nm) was observed within Al matrix, moreover, lamellar S' phase was transformed into lenticular or spherical S phase after hypervelocity impact.

    Interfacial structure in 55%TiB(2)/Al composite before and after high speed impact was investigated in detail. It is found that there is no stacking fault in original TiB(2) particle before fabrication or in TiB(2) particle in composite. However, after the composite is impacted by 1.2mm projectile with the velocity of 2.5km/s, stacking fault forms along the (0001) plane around the edge of... [Show full abstract]

      The influences of parameters of tungsten inert gas arc welding on the morphology, microstructure, tensile property and fracture of welded joints of Ni-base superalloy have been studied. Results show that the increase of welding current and the decrease of welding speed bring about the large amount of heat input in the welding pool and the enlargement of width and deepness of the welding pool....

        Understanding the diffusion mechanism of hydrogen in titanium can give fundamental knowledge to reveal the mechanisms of thermohydrogen processing of titanium alloys. The diffusion characteristics of hydrogen along the C axis and in the basal plane of α-Ti were studied using the first-principles total-energy pseudo-potential method. For hydrogen diffusion in the basal plane, our calculations... [Show full abstract]

          Self-diffusion characteristics of titanium in the alpha Ti–H system and in pure α-Ti were studied using the total-energy pseudo-potential method. Comparing the calculated activation energy for Ti self-diffusion in alpha Ti–H (2.509 eV) with that in pure α-Ti (2.775 eV), our calculations show that hydrogen atoms reduce the potential barrier for Ti self-diffusion, and thereby they can enhance...
