  • Characteristics of fatigue crack propagation in dual-phase steels have been investigated in a high purity Fe-2Si-0.1C steel with the objective of developing ferritic-martensitic microstructures with maximum resistance to fatigue crack extension while maintaining high strength levels. A range of crack growth rates has been examined from 10/sup -8/ to 10/sup -3/ mm per cycle in duplex microstructures where intercritical heat treatments were used to vary the proportion, morphology, and distribution of the ferrite and martensite phases. Microstructures containing fine globular or coarse martensite in a coarse-grained ferritic matrix yielded the highest ambient temperature fatigue threshold stress intensity range ..delta..K/sub 0/more » values reported to date and the highest combination of strength and ..delta..K/sub 0/ for steels« less
  • In many heterogeneous engineering alloys of a relatively coarse phase distribution where non-local effects due to such phases are unimportant and where inelastic deformation inside these phase domains can be appropriately viewed by continuum concepts, the overall steady creep behavior of the alloy can be obtained by the use of the well-known self-consistent theory for polycrystals and composites, in a piece-wise linear and incremental approach--provided the creep constitutive behavior for each of the constituent phases is known.
  • Zeolite-supported Pt(O) microstructures sized less than 10 nm are addressed as electrodes using dispersion electrolysis. Modification of a heterogeneous catalyst with ultramicroelectrodes permits exploration of electrode processes in an interphase dominated by the nature of the heterogeneous catalyst and at electrode sizes where bulk metallic properties may not apply. The systems described at Pt supported on zeolite type Y and Pt supported on {gamma}-alumina. The electrolytic response of zeolite-supported Pt in the absence of added electrolyte salt for water or a benzene-water mixture is markedly more effective than that at alumina-supported Pt and is seen to depend on the sizemore » of the Pt particles supported on the exterior of the zeolite surface. Both supported systems behave as ultramicroelectrodes in that electrolysis is sustained in their presence under conditions that are strictly Ohmic for the feeder electrodes due to the high resistivity of the medium in the absence of electrolyte salt. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopic measurements confirm the expected low concentration and the metallic form of Pt on the zeolite exterior and indicate the approximate particle size of the supported Pt. A particle size effect for the electrolysis of water was observed for Pt supported on zeolite. The conductivity of a dispersion containing water and zeolite is shown to be greater than that derived from ions generated by zeolite-promoted autoprotolysis of the water. Zeolite, thus, offers a solid-state ionic environment that effectively contributes to the ionic strength of the dispersion without requiring dissolution of an electrolyte salt.« less
