  • Clinical, pathological, and computed tomographic (CT) findings were reviewed in 400 patients with ethmoid sinus disease, including 272 who had undergone surgery. The postoperative appearance of ethmoid sinuses on CT scans is a highly neglected subject in radiologic literature. The unique ethmoid anatomy permits a variety of surgical approaches, and radiologists must be familiar with the postoperative appearances if they are to recognize the effects of prior surgery and detect, when possible, the recurrence of disease. It is often difficult to evaluate the clinical significance of soft-tissue disease, despite good clinical correlation.
  • The sacrificial anodic effect of Al-Zn alloy reduced markedly in aluminium heat exchanger as car air conditioner manufactured by vacuum brazing conventionally used, as zinc elements preferentially evaporate in vacuum-heating. It was found that Al-Sn alloy had superior electrochemical characteristics than Al-Zn alloy (AA7072) as the sacrificial anodic material used in vacuum brazing. According to many experimental results, the new brazing sheet-fin with Al-Mn-Sn alloy core metal has been developed. This fin has favorable formability and prominent sacrificial anodic effect. Therefore, this fin is excellent material for car air conditioner manufactured by vacuum brazing.
  • Zn or Al-Zn-In sacrificial anodes are commonly used to protect submerged marine structures from general corrosion and galvanic corrosion. However, such electronegative alloys can also induce stress corrosion cracking or hydrogen embrittlement on high strength steels. Decreasing the electronegative potential applied to the structure, in the suitable range (around {minus}0.80 V vs Ag/AgCl) can significantly reduce the amount of hydrogen produced by the cathodic reaction and thus limit the risk of hydrogen embrittlement. The present work has consisted in determining the criteria for a new cathodic protection system with low voltage anodes and selecting one anode that matches the determinedmore » requirements, on the basis of laboratory tests. Among the various alloys tested the Al-O.1% Ga anode provided the most promising results and therefore was selected. The first full scale marine tests performed on an industrial casting of this anode have shown the effectiveness of the Al-O.1% Ga anode in the chosen potential range, with a satisfactory galvanic efficiency in real environments.« less
  • The Alcan Compact Degasser is an efficient trough-based molten aluminum treatment unit designed as an alternative to the existing in-line heated box based degassers. It was shown in Part 1 of this paper that in spite of the Alcan Compact Degasser`s small size, no concessions were made on its metallurgical performances. Various versions of the Alcan Compact Degasser have been used in Alcan for the last two years. This paper first describes the industrial unit and its main characteristics. Then the operational experience with the Alcan Compact Degasser in two Alcan plants is presented.
  • The discipline of time-dependent fracture mechanics has traditionally focused on the creep crack growth behavior of high-temperature materials that display creep-ductile behavior, such as stainless steels and chromium-molybdenum steels. Elevated temperature aluminum alloys, however, have been developed that exhibit creep-brittle behavior; in this case, the creep crack growth rate correlates with the stress intensity factor, K. The fracture characteristics of aluminum alloy 2519-T87 were studied at 135 C, and the creep and creep crack growth behavior were characterized utilizing experimental and numerical methods. The strain to failure for creep deformation specimens was limited to only 1.2 to 2.0%. Creep crackmore » growth tests revealed a unique correlation between the creep crack growth rate and K, a result consistent with creep-brittle behavior. No experimental correlation was found between the creep crack growth rate and the C{sub t} parameter. Microscopy of fracture surfaces revealed distinct regions of intergranular and transgranular fracture, and the transition between the fracture regions was found to occur at a critical K-level. Experimental results also appeared to show that initiation of crack growth (incubation) is controlled by the accumulation of a critical amount of damage ahead of the crack tip and that a correlation exists between the incubation time and K. Total time to failure is viewed as a summation of the incubation period and the crack growth period, and the design importance of incubation time is discussed.« less
