    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 1999, 15 (02): 97-110. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (3317KB)
    Bulk metallic glasses with up to 72 mm critical section thickness have been obtained by conventional casting techniques and the properties of these materials, particularly the mechanical and magnetic properties have been studied. These materials have been demonstrated to have novel properties, which are fundamentally different from their crystalline counterparts. The recent status of research and development in formation, structure and properties of bulk metallic glasses is reviewed. The techniques to produce such bulk glasses are summarized and the glass forming ability and the critical cooling rate of these materials are discussed. Further consideration of the development and application of this new class of materials will be proposed.

    Martensitic Transformation in Fe-Mn-Si Based Shape Memory Alloys
    T.Y.Hsu XU Zuyao
    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 1999, 15 (02): 111-116. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (1545KB)
    The critical driving force for martensitic transformation fcc (γ)→hcp(ε) in ternary Fe-Mn-Si alloys increases with the content of Mn and decreases with that of Si. Thermodynamical prediction of MS in ternary Fe-Mn-Si alloys is established. The fcc (γ)®hcp(ε) martensitic transformation in Fe-Mn-Si is a semi-thermoelastic and the nucleation process does not strongly depend on soft mode. Nucleation occurs directly through an overlapping of stacking fault rather than pole mechanism, and it is suggested that stacking fault energy (SFE) is the main factor controlling nucleation. Based on the phenomenological theory of martensite crystallography, a shuffle on (0001)hcp plane is required when d111¹d0002. The derived principal strain in Bain distortion is smaller, i.e., more reasonable than the values given by Christian. Alloying elements strengthening the austenite, lowering SFE of γ phase and reducing TγN temperature may be beneficial to shape memory effect (SME) of Fe-Mn-Si based alloys. Accordingly, Fe-Mn-Si-RE and Fe-Mn-Si-Cr-N (or Fe-Mn-Si-Ni-Cr-N) are worthy to be recommended as shape memory materials with improved SME.

    Huan LI, Jiabao LI, Zhongguang WANG, Chuanhai JIANG, Dezun WANG
    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 1999, 15 (02): 117-120. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (734KB)
    The thermal stress behavior of bonded SiC/6061AL laminates during thermal cycling and the stress relaxation at elevated temperature (205℃) were investigated by means of X-ray diffraction. It was found that the elastic and elastoplastic deformation in the 6061Al layer took place during thermal cycling, and the same closed stress temperature loop was formed in the second cycling for the aged and low temperature treated specimen. Meanwhile, it was demonstrated that the compressive stress relaxed in 6061Al layer at 205℃ within the range of 0.5-16 h, and which was nearly unchanged with further prolongation of time.

    K.Sadrnezhaad, A.Simchi
    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 1999, 15 (02): 121-127. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (3058KB)
    A computer program is developed to simulate a two-step smelting-reduction process. Laws of thermodynamics, kinetics, iron-oxide reduction, energy balance, materials balance and transfer of heat and mass between metal, slag and gas are taken into account for development of the model. Local equilibria between metal and slag according to the quadratic formalism of the regular solution model is considered. Dissolution of iron and its oxides in the molten slag and heat transfer from post combustion gases to the molten bath are numerically analyzed. The model is able to evaluate the effect of all important variables on productivity and effectiveness of the process. Special attention is paid to the operational conditions of the reduction furnace while working with the gases coming from a smelter with a high post-combustion ratio and a high reducing-power produced through reforming of the off-gases of the smelter with a natural gas stream in order to minimize the total energy consumption and to maximize the productivity. The application of the model to optimize the behavior of a two-stage smelting-reduction system is investigated.

    Weihong ZHONG, Deyu CUI, Zhifen GU, Changqi CHEN, Hongyun LI
    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 1999, 15 (02): 128-132. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (824KB)
    The distribution of residual stresses of ARALL with different prestresses is calculated by finite element theory. A new method for regulating the residual stress, that is, introducing interim layer between aramid and Al layers, is given out. Applying prestress to the laminate has strong effects on the distribution of normal stress along the fiber direction. The interim layer in fiber direction presents a state with gradient distribution.

    Microstructural Stability of a Multiphase Ni-25Al-15Cr (at. pct) Intermetallic Alloy
    Rongshi CHEN, Jianting GUO, Jiyang ZHOU
    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 1999, 15 (02): 133-136. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (1949KB)
    The microstructure of multiphase Ni-25Al-15Cr (at. pct) intermetallic alloy consists of dendritic arms (β-NiAl phase) and interdendritic regions (γ/γ´ two phases) under homogenization followed by air cooling condition. Furnace cooling following homogenization does not significantly influence its microstructure. However, the effects of aging treatment on the microstructure strongly depend on cooling rates following homogenization. A single phase g´ layer with a α-Cr `spouse' layer is observed surrounding the dendritic arms, the formation of this ‘couple’ is attributed to a four-phase invariant quasi-peritectoid, i.e: β+γ=γ´+α-Cr .

    Influence of Milling Conditions on the Mechanical Alloying of Fe-B Powders
    Yuanzheng YANG, Qiaoshen LI, Youlan ZHU, Xueming MA, Yu, a DONG
    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 1999, 15 (02): 137-142. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (1187KB)
    Amorphous and nanostructural Fe-B alloys made by mechanical alloying of elemental Fe and amorphous B powders have been studied using X-ray diffraction, differential scanning calorimetry and Mössbauer spectroscopy. It has been shown that the milling conditions have a strong effect on the alloying. The single-phase amorphous alloy, which is limited at nominal composition of Fe60B40, has been produced only by milling in Ar atmosphere and in other composition range the mixture of nanostructure Fe-like phase and Fe2B compound with a little amorphous phase are obtained. While by milling in air atmosphere the introduction of oxygen in air may suppress the formation of amorphous phase, thus the compounds Fe2B may be synthesized with no trace of amorphous phase. The crystallization temperatures of amorphous phase in the resultant products are higher than those of a single amorphous alloy Fe60B40, and hardly independent of the milling conditions and the composition. In addition, it is revealed that detectable B content in the final products is lower than the nominal composition of all the initial samples, which indicates that some B atoms may be located in the disordered interfacial regions of the nanostructural alloyed mixtures.

    S.A.El-Henawii, S.M.Saad, I.M.El-Anwar
    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 1999, 15 (02): 164-168. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (1139KB)
    The dielectric constants ε’, the dielectric loss ε” and the activation energy of dielectric relaxation of silylated cellulose were measured within the frequency range 105 to 107 Hz and the temperature range from 10 to 50°C. The test samples were activated cellulose with ethylene diamine, with sodium hydroxide and inactivated cellulose before and after silylation. The measurements were carried out using a multi-deka-meter. Cellulose molecules are more activated by treatment with ethylene diamine than with sodium hydroxide. Generally, silylation causes a marked decrease of the dielectric constant and dielectric loss, meanwhile the silylated samples are affected with the pretreatment of linters with sodium hydroxide and ethylene diamine.

    Part V: A New Molecular Theory of Non-linear Viscoelasticity for Polymeric Suspensions
    Mingshi SONG, Wen ZHOU, Guixian HU, Lijiang HU
    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 1999, 15 (02): 169-177. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (1721KB)
    A double-network model is established, which consists of the segments, E and A-constituent chains, the polymeric chains entangled with other ones by multi-entanglement and polymeric chains connected to a great number of destructible particles by multi-adsorption, based on which the E and A-constituent chains can be recreated and released dynamically. The distribution function of the end-to-end vector, the statistical distribution function of conformation for two kinds of chains in the multi-entanglement and multi-adsorption states and their number of polymeric chains are calculated by the combination of statistical mechanics and kinetics. Then the viscoelastic free energies of deformation for two kinds of the networks and suspensions are calculated by Boltzmann's statistical theory. Also, elastic modulus and memory function for two kinds of the network and suspensions are derived. Consequently, a new molecular theory of the non-linear viscoelasticity for polymeric suspensions is proposed, and the constitutive equation and material function with yielding and thinning for the polymeric suspensions in different flow fields are derived from this theory.

    Haiguang ZHOU, Zhilin YANG
    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 1999, 15 (02): 181-183. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (646KB)
    A theoretical treatment of photo-refractive effect and experimental verifications of the associated nonlinear-optical processes in the nematic phase of liquid crystals are presented. The effect is attributed to the dc space charge fields induced by the photo-charges, which may come from the photo ionization impurities. The phenomenon is analyzed and a theoretical model of photo refractivity in nematic liquid crystals is developed. New experimental results are found to be in good agreement with the theory.

    Molecular Dynamics Simulation of Zero-Fluence and Low-Bombarding-Energy 63Cu-65Cu Sputtering
    Liping ZHENG, Shi QIU, Yukui ZHOU, Risheng LI
    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 1999, 15 (02): 184-186. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (472KB)
    A molecular dynamics simulation has been used to study zero-fluence and low-bombarding-energy 63Cu-65Cu sputtering. Calculations show that the isotopic ratios at both θ≤35° and θ>35°, and the total isotopic ratio increase when the bombarding energy decreases. This result might imply the existence of the bombarding-energy-dependent momentum asymmetry.

    Lianshe FU, Hongjie ZHANG, Shubin WANG, Qingguo MENG, Hua SHAO, Jiazuan NI
    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 1999, 15 (02): 187-189. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (666KB)
    In-situ synthesis of terbium complex with salicylic acid (Sal) in silica matrix was made by a two-step sol-gel process. The terbium complex with salicylic acid was formed in sol-gel derived silica gel, and confirmed by the luminescence excitation spectra and infrared (IR) spectra. As compared to the pure terbium complex powder, the silica gel containing terbium complex exhibits its characteristic emission and presents a longer fluorescence lifetime than that for the pure complex. The luminescence properties of the complex containing silica gel were investigated and compared with that of both terbium doped the silica gel and the pure complex powder. The reasons leading to the above results were also discussed.
