    Abstract ( 750 ( PDF (1789KB)( 266 Citation
    The hot compression test of Al-Zn-Mg alloy containing Sc was performed on Gleeble-1500 thermal simulation machine. The hot deformation behavior and microstructural evolution of the alloy were investigated under different deformation conditions. The hot deformation temperature and the strain rate during hot compression tests were 340-500℃, 0.001-10s-1, respectively. The results show that the flow stress of the alloy increase with the increasing the strain rate, but decrease with the increasing of the deforming temperature. The flow stress of the alloy during hot compression deformation can be described by a Zener-Hollomon parameter. The hot deformation activation energy is 150.25kJ/mol. When the deformation temperature is 380℃ and the strain rates is 1s-1, the dislocation walls formed and the main soften mechanism is dynamic recovery. When the deformation temperature is 500℃, the recrystallization grains are observed, indicating that the main soften mechanism of the alloy transform from dynamic recovery to dynamic recrystallization.

    Dissolving and Precipitating Characteristics of WC and Carbides in the Ni60A+WC Graded Coating
    YUAN You-lu, LI Zhu-guo
    2013, 0 (11): 12-19,25.   DOI: 10.3969/j.issn.1001-4381.2013.11.003
    Abstract ( 680 ( PDF (6012KB)( 362 Citation
    The dissolution and precipitation of WC in the multilayered Ni60A+WC reinforced Fe-based graded coating fabricated by Plasma cladding were studied, in which the content of Ni60A+WC increased by 10%mass fraction layer by layer. The results show that the dissolution of WC in each layer of the graded coating during the plasma cladding heating stage was closely related to the particle size and inner defect. The dissolution characteristics of WC are classified into four types: diffusing, core dissolution, crumbling, and diffusing complex core-dissolution. The shape characteristics of the precipitated W-rich carbides in the graded coating during the solidification process are relevant to the contents of Ni60A+WC. With the increasing of the contents for the Ni60A+WC from 10% to 50%, the shapes of W-rich carbides are transferred from reticulation, grain, grain mixed with block, block mixed with cluster to big block mixed with equiaxial structures, and the quantity of the precipitated W-rich carbides increased layer by layer. As a result, the hardness of the graded coating linearly increases gradually.

    Abstract ( 866 ( PDF (3859KB)( 469 Citation
    The self-lubricating wear-resistant NiCr/Cr3C2-30%WS2 coating and wear-resistant NiCr/Cr3C2 coating were fabricated by laser cladding on 0Cr18Ni9 austenitic stainless steel. The phase compositions and microstructures were investigated by X-ray diffractometer (XRD), scanning electron microscope (SEM) and energy dispersive spectrometer (EDS). The tribological properties of the fabricated composite coatings were evaluated under dry sliding condition at room-temperature (RT), 300℃ and 600℃, respectively, and the wear mechanisms were discussed. The results show that the phase constituents of coating added with WS2 are composed of Cr7C3, (Cr, W)C reinforcement carbides, ductile phase of γ-(Fe, Ni)/Cr7C3eutectic, and WS2, CrS lubricants. The friction coefficients of above two coatings both decrease with the rising of temperature, but the wear rates both increase. At room-temperature and 300℃, the coating added with WS2 has superior friction-reducing and wear-resistance properties as a result of the presence of WS2 and CrS lubricants. However, the wear rates of two coatings significantly increase due to the hardness reducing of carbides at 600℃.

    The Hydrazine hydrate (N2H4·H2O) as the reducing agent, AgNO3 as the source of Ag, the silver nanopowders with good dispersity were prepared by liquid phase reduction method. The morphology, composition and structure of the particles were investigated by transmission electron microscopy (TEM), X-ray fluorescence (XRF), and X-Ray diffraction (XRD), respectively. Single factor experiments were taken by studying the pH value and the selection of dispersers. Using the orthogonal design method, the optimal conditions to prepare the silver nanopowders were obtained by studying the effects of following factors, such as the concentration of AgNO3, the doses of disperser and the temperature on the dispersion of the silver powder. The results show that under optimization conditions, the pure silver nanopowders with near-spherical shapes are synthesized using the AgNO3(0.5mol·L-1), N2H4·H2O (0.5mol·L-1), PVP as disperser, PVP/AgNO3 mass ratio of 9:100, pH=8 at 30℃.

    Effect of High Temperature Solution Treatment on Carbides in HIPed FGH96 Alloy by Stereology Method
    MA Wen-bin, LIU Guo-quan, HU Ben-fu, ZHANG Yi-wen, LIU Jian-tao
    2013, 0 (11): 43-49.   DOI: 10.3969/j.issn.1001-4381.2013.11.008
    Abstract ( 588 ( PDF (2102KB)( 171 Citation
    The OM, SEM, TEM and the stereology method were used to observe and quantitatively characterize the carbides in HIPed FGH96 alloys before and after high temperature solution treatment at different temperature. The results show that the carbides in HIPed FGH96 alloy are mainly MC type carbides which are rich in Ti and Nb. The shape of PPB carbides was block, while the non-PPB carbides were petal and block. Compared with the HIPed alloy, the amount of PPB carbides as well as the total carbides in FGH96 alloy increased when the heat treatment temperature was below 1180℃. But the amount of carbides decreased and the PPB gradually disappeared with the increasing temperature when the heat treatment temperature was above 1180℃. The carbides precipitated mainly as non-PPB carbides if the HIPed alloy was furnace cooled. However, such re-precipitation was suppressed when the alloy was air cooled from the heat treatment temperature. Thus, when the alloy was either furnace or air cooled, the amount of PPB carbides was significantly reduced even the total amount of carbides retains almost the same as that in the HIPed alloy in case of furnace cooling. Moreover, the PPB carbide size distribution in the air cooling alloy appears a unimodal mode, while that in the furnace cooling alloy is a bimodal one, the latter of which was resulted from the re-precipitation of carbides occurred in the furnace cooling process.

    Abstract ( 466 ( PDF (2746KB)( 147 Citation
    Three kinds of machining techniques including one pass extrusion, two passes extrusion and forging after extrusion were adopted to deform AZ61 magnesium alloy, then mechanical property, tension and compression yield asymmetry were studied.The results indicate that, extrusion can refine the grain size of AZ61 magnesium alloy, but the grain is coarse by forging after extrusion. Due to {0002} basal plane orientation strengthened by two passes extrusion, tensile yield strength increases while compressive yield strength decreases, which deteriorate the tension and compression asymmetry. After forging deformation,altering the basal plane texture, while coarsening the grains partly at the same time, tensile yield strength of AZ61 magnesium alloy dropped, while compressive yield strength keep almost the same. As a result, tension and compression yield asymmetry was improved.

    2013, 0 (11): 62-69,74.   DOI: 10.3969/j.issn.1001-4381.2013.11.011
    Abstract ( 411 ( PDF (5429KB)( 232 Citation
    At obvious plastic deformation stage, an in-situ TEM tensile testing for the nanocrystalline Ni was conducted to investigate the microscopic physical mechanisms during the development of shear bands. Thus, a corresponding model was optimized. The results show that in the nanometer scale, with the increasing of grain size, shear band width increases and the trend of strain softening becomes more obvious. The generation of shear band in smaller grain is earlier than that in bigger grain. The intrinsic length scale increases first with the increasing of grain size and then decreases. The distribution of shear strain in shear band is also obtained. The value of shear strain is zero at two boundaries of the shear band and is the maximum at center of the shear band.

    A method for nonlinear ultrasonic evaluation of surface damage for metallic material is presented. Rayleigh waves are excited and acquired with Ritec SNAP nonlinear ultrasonic measurement system, the FSW-based acoustic nonlinearity parameters (FSW ANPs) are thus measured at different stress levels for AZ31 magnesium alloy plate specimens. The results show that there is a significant increase in the acoustic nonlinearity parameters with monotonic tensile loads when the stress is close to the yielding stress. The research suggests an effective nondestructive evaluation method to track the mechanical property for the surface of metallic material in a nonlinear ultrasonic way using stress wave factor.
