Title: Micro-CT analysis and mechanical properties of Ti spherical and polyhedral void composites made with saccharose as a space holder material

Abstract

The paper describes the formation, morphology and mechanical properties of Ti void composites. The Ti void composites were made using 100 and 325 mesh Ti powder for solid scaffold formation. The spherical and polyhedral voids (pores) were formed using saccharose particles (table sugar) of different shapes. The Ti void composite morphology was investigated by microcomputed tomography and scanning electron microscopy. The Ti void composites of designed porosity of 50–70% were made. Compression test was applied for mechanical properties estimation. It has been found, that Ti void composites made from 100 mesh Ti and those having spherical pores have a higher strength and elastic modulus, i.e. for the designed porosity of 50% for 100 and 325 mesh Ti void composites, a compressive strength was 32.32 and 20.13 MPa, respectively. It has been shown that this is related to better sintering of the 100 mesh Ti powders compared with the 325 mesh Ti powders. A correlation between microcomputed tomography data and mechanical properties has also been shown. The Ti void composites, made with the use of saccharose as a space holder, described in this work should be a promising material for biomedical applications, where interconnected pores and good mechanical properties are required.more » - Highlights: • Ti scaffolds of the porosity of 50–70% were made. • Saccharose particles as space holder were applied. • The voids in the scaffolds were designed with spherical and polyhedral shape. • The scaffold structure was investigated by SEM and micro-CT. • Micro-CT data and mechanical properties of the Ti scaffold have been correlated.« less

  • In the present investigation, the mechanical properties of an elevated temperature aluminum alloy exhibiting two different size distributions was evaluated after extrusion processing at 400 C. The alloy powder with a target composition of Al-8 wt.% Fe-4 wt.% Ce was produced under different atomizing conditions. The consolidation process using extrusion was found to be more beneficial for finer powder size distribution in terms of elevated temperature mechanical properties because of the retention of a more desirable metastable phase.
  • The influence of the microscale local mechanical properties of the interfacial transition zone (ITZ) on macro-level mechanical response and impact behavior is studied for concretes made with copper slag and gravel aggregates. 3D nanotech vertical scanning interferometry, scanning electron microscopy coupled with energy dispersive X-ray micro-analysis, digital image analysis, and 3D X-ray computed tomography were used to characterize the microstructures and the ITZs. It was deduced that a stronger and denser ITZ in the copper slag specimen would reduce its vulnerability to stiffness loss and contribute to its elastic and more ductile response under impact loading. The analysis also indicatedmore » that a significant degeneration in the pore structure of the gravel specimen associated with a relatively weaker and non-homogeneous ITZ occurred under impact. Finally, it was also concluded that increased roughness of ITZ may contribute to the load-carrying capacity of concrete under impact by improving contact point interactions and energy dissipation.« less
  • Highlights: • High ϵ′ PVDF/CCTO and La doped CCTO composites prepared by Extrusion. • With addition of ceramic, there is substantial increase in the ϵ′ of matrix PVDF. • Composites exhibit double relaxation behavior. - Abstract: Melt extrusion process has been used to prepare high relative permittivity, ϵ' PVDF–CCTO and PVDF–LaCCTO composites. Phase composition has been studied using powder X-ray diffraction (XRD). Microstructural, dielectric and mechanical properties have also been studied. Young's modulus of PVDF increases with the ceramic reinforcement. Dielectric measurements are made in the frequency range 10{sup −2}–10{sup 6} Hz using two probe Novocontrol impedance analyser (ZG4) frommore » room temp to 120 °C to study the dielectric relaxation. There is a substantial increase in ϵ' of the matrix PVDF on addition of LaCCTO.« less
  • This paper deals with the influence of direct current pulsing on the microstructure, room temperature hardness and tensile properties at four different temperatures of tungsten inert gas (TIG) weldments of Ti-6Al-4V. Autogenous full-penetration bead-on-plate TIG welds were made with and without direct current pulsing. A few coupons were subjected to a post-weld heat treatment (PWHT) at 900 deg. C. Room temperature hardness and tensile properties at four different temperatures (25, 150, 300 and 450 deg. C) of the weldments in both as-welded and PWHT conditions were studied and correlated with the microstructure. Current pulsing resulted in slight refinement of priormore » {beta} grains leading to higher hardness, tensile strength and ductility of weldments in the as-welded condition. The post-weld heat treatment at 900 deg. C resulted in improvement in ductility and reduction in strength of weldments (both unpulsed and pulsed) owing to more coarsening of {alpha}, reduction in defect density and decomposition of martensite to equilibrium {alpha} and {beta}. Both pulsed and unpulsed weldments after PWHT exhibited almost the same values of strength and ductility. This may be attributed to the width of the {alpha} plates being almost the same in both welds.« less
  • Elastic and plastic properties of metals and Young{close_quote}s modulus of ceramics are determined in the microindentation regime by continuous measurements of load versus depth of penetration with {ital spherical} indenters. Calibration procedures, usually applied in nanoindentation experiments, are not needed in the microregime where spherical indenters (rather than sharp indenters with microscopical spherical tips) can be manufactured. As indenters of larger diameters are used, the elastic response of the specimen can be probed during the loading stage of the indentation tests (and not only during unloading, as is the case with nanoindenters). Hence, an accurate determination of the Young{close_quote}s modulusmore » can be achieved without a prior knowledge of possible {open_quotes}piling up{close_quotes} or {open_quotes}sinking in{close_quotes} which may occur at the perimeter of the contact area. The contact response of materials is shown to undergo four distinct regions: (i) pre-Hertzian regime, (ii) Hertzian regime, (iii) small-scale plasticity, and (iv) large-scale plasticity. A general methodology for estimation of yield strength and hardening exponent of metals is proposed in the last regime. {copyright} {ital 1998 Materials Research Society.}« less
