    A new kind of aluminium-based alloy part amorphous/part crystalline, can be produced directlyby rapid quenching of the liquid. These materials have a novel structure of nanometer-sizedcrystals in an amorphous matrix and quite remarkable mechanical properties. The materialscan be considered to be nanophase composites. In this work Al88Ni10Y2 and Al88Ni8Y4 (atpct) nanophase composites consisting of a nanoscale dispersion of fcc-Al crystallites uniformlydispersed in an amorphous matrix, have been produced by melt-spinning. They have much highermicrohardness HV than fully amorphous alloys with the same composition. while retaining goodbending ductility The volume fraction, crystallite size and distribution of the fcc-Al phase havebeen estimated by DSC. X-ray diffraction and TEM. lt is found that the microstructure andproperties of the nanophase composites are very sensitive to the composition and the quenchingconditions. lncreasing the Y contedt and decreasing the Ni content at a given Al content givesmuch smaller dispersed nanophase aluminium crystallites. The volume fraction and crystallitesize of the fcc-Al phase increase with a decrease of wheel speed (quenching rate). The effectsof Y and Ni contents on the ease of formaticn of the nanophase composites are discussed. Theorigins of the novel mechanical properties are also considered.

    Abstract   HTML   PDF (1322KB)
    The mixture of pure nickel and aluminum powders in the composition of Ni50AI50 was subjected to high energy ball milling. The high energy ball milling to 30 h resulted in the formation of a nanocrystalline NiAl with a grain size of about 10 nm. The as-milled NiAl powder was hot-pressed and the compact with a density of 90% was obtained. It was showed that heating to900℃ and holding for more than 2 h failed to induce the coarsening of the fine nanocrystalin the material, the tendency of grain growth was weak. Compression testing showed that thecompression ductility at room temperature reached about 7%. The ductility increased with theexperimental temperature while the strength decreased drastically at elevated temperature.

    Abstract   HTML   PDF (889KB)
    A new amorphous Al87.3Fe4.3V0.7Si1.7Mm6.0(Mm: misch metal) was prepared by using melt-spinning technique. Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), X-ray diffraction (XRD). transmis-sion electron microscopy (TEM) and energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) have been used to investigatethe crystallization behaviour of thi5 amorphous alloy It is found that the crystallization processcan be concluded as follows: amorphous→ amorphous plus fcc-Al→ fcc-Al plus AI11(La,Ce)3plus i-phase (icosahedral)→ fcc-Al plus Al11(La,Ce)3 plus i-phase plus ic-phase (icosahedralcompounds). The results of microhardness measurement show that HV values are higher thanthose in Al-Fe-V-Si based alloy and the maximum HV value corresponds to the coexisting ofnanoscale Al particles and i-phase.

    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 1996, 12 (1): 15-18. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (363KB)
    The diffusion of hydrogen in amorphous NiCrFeSiB alloy has been studied by electrochemicalmethod. In the temperature range of 20~50℃, diffusion coefficient of hydrogen in the alloy fol-lows the equation' D(cm2/s)= 9.27x10-8exp(-53.4 kJ/RT). At room temperature the diffusion.coefficient D and the solubility Co are 6.125x 10-12 cm2/s and 0.007 mol/cm3, respectively.When As2O3 is added into the cathodic solution or the charging current density is increased, thediffusion coefficient and solubility increase, and the difFusion activation energy decreases. Theinfluence of amorphous structure on diffusion and solution of hydrogen is discussed.

    Abstract   HTML   PDF (630KB)
    The fluorescent spectra of nanostructured Al2O3 after heat-treating at different temperatureshave been systematically investigated. The results show that for η-Al2O3 and γ-Al2O3, two broadfluorescent bands P1 and P2 appear in the wavenumber range of 20000 cm-1 to 11500 cm-1,and P1 and P2 bands are located in the wavenumber range of 20000 cm-1 to 14500 cm-1 and14500 cm-1 to 11500 cm-1, respectively The P1 band can be attributed to the impurity Cr3+luminescence. This is consistent with other author's result for the Cr doped Al2O3. The P2band is a new fluorescent phenomenon, which has not been reported previously. In this paper,the condition of the appearance of P2 and its mechanism is discussed in detail.

    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 1996, 12 (1): 29-34. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (2865KB)
    The main Iimitation to the toughening of the α-Al2O3/Ni composite is the poor bonding atthe interface. which causes the nickel particles to be pulled-out during crack propagation with-out obvious plastic deformation. A proper control of oxygen content at the Al2O3-Ni interfacecan promote wetting at the intedece, and produce a mechanically interlocked and chemically strengthened intedece, causing most of the nickel particles to be stretched to failure and to expe-rience severe plastic deformation during crack propagation in the composite. Fracture toughnesstesting using a modified double cantilever beam method with in situ observation of crack prop-agation in a scanning electron microscope shows that the composite with the strengthenedinterface has a more desirable R-curve behaviour and a higher fracture toughness value than thenormal composite.

    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 1996, 12 (1): 46-50. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (2108KB)
    Special microspheres dispersed in epoxy resin prior to curing can toughen brittle resin by formationof a second phase. In this work, rigid particles (HP), hollow particles (PO) and rubber powders(PR) are used to modify epoxy resins for the study on the toughening mechanism. The single-edge notched three-point bending test and T peel test have been used to measure the toughnessof epoxy resin. The morphology (particle/matrix interfacial shape) of epoxy resin modified withthese three kinds of microspheres has been investigated by transmission electron microscopy(TEM). The results show that these three kinds of modifiers are all effective, and the core-shellrubber particle (PR) is the best toughening modifier among them. It is also found that thetoughening effect is dependent on the morphology of the interface between the particles andmatrix and the different curing conditions really result in obviously different interface states.The excellent interfacial interaction plays a significant role in toughening epoxy resin.

    Notch Severity Effect on Hydrogen Embrittlement of Type 4340 Steel
    Su'e LIU; Zhong ZHU and Wei KE(State Key Lab. of Corrosion and Protection, Institute of Corrosion and Protection of Metals,Chinese Academy of Sciences, Shenyang 110015, China) D.Hardie(Dept. of Mechanical, Materials and Manufacturing Engineering, Universi
    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 1996, 12 (1): 51-56. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (2534KB)
    Hydrogen embrittlement of Type 4340 steel has been investigated by straining round-notchedspecimens in 105 Pa hydrogen atmosphere at a constent cross-head spead of 1.4x 10-4 mm/s.The circumferentially notched specimens exhibited a significant embrittlement when their me-chanical behaviour in hydrogen was compared with that in air. Although the effect of notch depthon fracture strength in air is negligible, an increase in the depth of notch increase susceptibility toembrittlement when testing in gaseous hydrogen. However, analysis of the effects is complicatedby the facts that (i) the specimens show some degree of notch severity even when strained inair and (ii) the behaviour is complicated by the localised plastic deformation that may occur forrelatively shatlow notches. Such effects are eliminated at high stress concentration factors, sothere is a systematic loss in fracture stress in hydrogen as the notch sensitivity increases fromK=2.6 to 5.7 (where a 87% reduction of fracture stress occurs) but a relatively stable value isthen reached even for very severe notching bj fatigue pre-cracking. Whether or not the effectis due to increasing concentration of hydrogen in the triaxial stress region ahead of the notch,there is no doubt that increasing the stress concentration makes hydrogen more effective as anembrittlement agent.

    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 1996, 12 (1): 57-68. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (1061KB)
    A theory in the framework of continuum elasticity has been developed to calculate the totalcontribution of "atomic size effect" or "strain energy effect" to free energy of binary solidsolutions. It is found that elastic free energy consists of two parts f elastic self energy (ESE),and elastic interaction energy(EIE). The former is a function of composition alone, the latter isalso a function of atomic configuration. Minimization of total elastic free energy with respect toatomic arrangement resuIts in an ordered arrangement of atoms, which is caIIed elastic interactionordering (EIO), as it originates from elastic interaction among atoms. EIO is a kind of localordering within a "characteristic range", and it is found to be important in determining the Stateof solid solutions and structures of superlattices. The present theory also gives good explanationto the coexistence of ordering and decomposition which can not be understood in conventionaltheories.

    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 1996, 12 (1): 78-80. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (2195KB)
    Interfacial geometric morphology, chemistry and microstructure have been studied by SEM,EDAX, HREM, and XPS. It is found that the oxide scale/metal interface consists of two layers.The first one is amorphous SiO2 growing inward metal matrix, and the second one under the firstlayer is TiO2 distributing in metal matrix. There is microstructural transition zone at Cr2O3/SiO2intedece, and an atomic mixed zone with 8 nm width at Si02/metal interface. The transitionzone which is saturated with Cr diffusing from oxide scale exists at the oxide scale/glass intedece.The reasons why sand-blasting process can improve bonding strength of the oxide scale and themetal are also discussed. The ideal interfaces are proposed finally.
