    Abstract ( 762 ( PDF (888KB)( 532 Citation

    On the basis of specific irradiation conditions in fusion reactor, the advantages and limitations of the main proposed irradiation facilities including ion irradiation, fission neutron irradiation, spallation neutron irradiation and fusion neutron irradiation were compared and evaluated.Ion accelerators, fission reactors and theory and modeling are expected to continue to play an indispensable role in studying the irradiation effect of fusion materials before the 14MeV neutron source is available. The corresponding relation between irradiation data from real fusion neutron and irradiation data from ion, fission neutron or spallation neutron irradiation has to be verified by irradiation using 14MeV high flux neutron source (e.g. IFMIF). The construction of powerful, economy-efficient fusion materials irradiation facility and the development of multi-scale numerical simulation are the inevitable choices to facilitate the commercialized application of fusion materials.

    Abstract ( 882 ( PDF (4104KB)( 168 Citation

    In order to increase the utilization of the precious metal catalysts in proton exchange membrane fuel cells, a new type of Pt/buckypaper catalytic layer with gradient structure was designed and prepared. Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) pretreated using ultrasonic method in mixed acid were used as the support of Pt catalyst. The Pt/buckypaper catalytic layer with Pt/CNTs gradient distribution was fabricated by simple filtration method. Several techniques such as scanning electron microscope, energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscope were utilized to characterize the microstructure and morphology of the catalyst and catalytic layer as well as the Pt distribution. The electrocatalytic performance of the catalyst and catalytic layer were measured by cyclic voltammetry and linear sweep voltammetry methods. The results show that the Pt particles were well dispersed on the CNTs support and the Pt particle size of Pt/CNTs was about 2.4nm. The electrochemical specific area (ECSA) of Pt/CNTs is similar to that of commercial Pt/C catalyst, while its specific mass activity and electrochemical stability were much higher than those of Pt/C. The ECSA of Pt/buckypaper catalytic layer can basically maintain the value of Pt/CNTs, indicating a high utilization of Pt. The novel gradient structure of catalytic layer manifests its promising applications in fuel cells.

    Abstract ( 666 ( PDF (3848KB)( 225 Citation

    Y doped N-BiVO4 photocatalysts were synthesized by a sol-gel method using rice stem as template. The photocatalysts were characterized by XPS, XRD, SEM, BET and UV-Vis DRS methods. The results show that all samples are monoclinic phase and Y doping does not change the crystallinity of N-BiVO4. The addition of nitrogen and yttrium inhibits the growth of crystalline grain and reunion, which can decrease the average grain size and increase the specific area of N-BiVO4, and leds to narrower band-gap and red-shift of optical absorption band. The effects of doping component on photocatalytic activity are evaluated by measuring the degradation of azocarmine B under visible light irradiation. 6Y-N-BVO has an optimal photocatalytic effect and the degradation rate of AZB in 50min is 97%, which is much higher than that of N-BVO(68%) and 6Y-BVO(72%).

    Sodium and aluminum (Na-Al) co-doped ZnO thin films (NAZO) were prepared on the quartz glass substrate by sol-gel spin-coating method. The effect of different Na-Al co-doped concentration on crystallization, microstructure and photoelectric properties of ZnO films were investigated. The results show that all NAZO thin films samples grow along the c-axis of the preferred orientation; appropriate Na-Al co-doped concentration can improve the ZnO films crystallization, increase the carrier mobility; meanwhile, six columnar grain structure crystal particles can be observed on the NAZO films surface. With the changing of Na-Al co-doped concentration, the highest mean optical transmittance reaches 95%. Because of the difference of the solid solution ratio, the appropriate concentration can improve the efficiency of doping Na-Al element, which enhances the carrier concentration of the film inside and the resistivity decreases; the lowest resistivity of NAZO thin films is 4.7×10-2Ω·cm.

    Jun LIU, Jin-ling ZHANG, Zhi-bo QU, Yan-chong YU, Bing-she XU, She-bin WANG
    2018, 46 (6): 73-79.   DOI: 10.11868/j.issn.1001-4381.2016.001178
    Abstract ( 669 ( PDF (3570KB)( 270 Citation

    The corrosion behavior of AZ31 magnesium alloy with different Gd contents in 3.5%(mass fraction) Na2SO4 solution was investigated by mass loss method. The effect of rare earth Gd on microstructure, corrosion rate and corrosion morphology of AZ31 magnesium alloy was analyzed by optical microscope (OM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). The results show that adding rare earth Gd can improve the corrosion resistance of AZ31 magnesium alloy significantly. When the Gd content is less than 4.12%, the corrosion resistance of the alloy increases with the increase of Gd content, but when the Gd content is more than 4.12%, the corrosion resistance of the alloy declines at a certain degree with the increase of Gd content. This is mainly caused by the content of Gd, which exacerbates the micro-galvanic corrosion effect between the precipitation phase and matrix phase, and thereby results in the decline of the corrosion resistance of the alloy. So when the content of Gd is 4.12%, AZ31 magnesium alloy has the optimum corrosion resistance.

    Abstract ( 547 ( PDF (5215KB)( 285 Citation

    The effect of fouling organisms adhesion on the formation of calcareous deposits in the ocean environment was simulated by immersion test. The corrosion morphologies, the calcareous deposits composition, the corrosion kinetics of Q235 steel and fouling organisms adhesion were investigated by the methods of SEM, EDS, EIS, mass loss method and fluorescence microscope observation. The results show that the electrochemical impedance modulus value and capacitive reactance arc of the samples of forming calcareous deposits after fouling organisms adhesion are greater than the bare steel samples, but it is less than the samples of forming calcareous deposits without fouling organisms adhesion. The results show that fouling organisms adhesion can inhibit the formation of calcareous deposits and cause calcareous deposits to protect metal performance degradation. The Ca/Mg ratio of same sample gradually decreases with the increase of experimental periods, and this shows that the ability of large fouling organisms to inhibit the formation of calcareous deposits is stronger.Mass loss experiments show that large fouling organisms can inhibit local corrosion.

    Abstract ( 636 ( PDF (3914KB)( 238 Citation

    Two kinds of rapid and slow cooling solder joints of Sn-35Bi-1Ag/Ni-P/Cu were prepared by reflow soldering and then cooling in water and oven, respectively. The kinetics of two kinds of layers were investigated using isothermal aging. Scanning electron microscope and energy dispersive spectrum were employed to characterize the microstructure and composition of the interfacial layers. Experimental results show that the structure of rapid-cooling interface is composed of (Ni, Cu)3Sn4+Ni3P, while the slow-cooling interface consisting of (Ni, Cu)3Sn4+Ni3P+(Cu, Ni)6Sn5.During the isothermal aging process, the growth of (Ni, Cu)3Sn4 layer slows down for the thin Ni-P gradually depleting, but the (Cu, Ni)6Sn5 layer follows the dynamics of the square root of aging time. The growth of interface IMCs is overall controlled by the diffusion mechanism, and these two kinds of interfacial layers eventually exhibit the composite lamellar structure of (Cu, Ni)6Sn5+(Ni, Cu)3Sn4+(Cu, Ni)6Sn5.The IMCs layer thickness in slow-cooling solder joints is greater than that in rapid-cooling solder joints under the same condition during soldering and aging. The growth rates of total IMCs are 4.670×10-18m2/s for slow-cooling joints, 3.816×10-18m2/s for rapid-cooling joints, respectively. It indicates that the cooling rate affects the aging behavior of solder joints during soldering and service.

    Abstract ( 915 ( PDF (5044KB)( 277 Citation

    A novel lanthanum monazite (LaPO4) coating was applied on two-dimensional woven continuous carbon fibers by a simple hydrothermal method. Then a Cf/LaPO4/SiBCN ceramic matrix composite(CMCs) was fabricated via subsequent RTM (resin transfer moulding) & PIP (polymer impregnation and pyrolysis) technology. Microstructure observation shows that most of the carbon fibers are coated uniformly with a layer of lanthanum monazite with the thickness of 500nm and there is no obvious chemical contamination between the coating and fiber/matrix during high temperature pyrolysis process. Cf/SiBCN, Cf/PyC/SiBCN and Cf/BN/SiBCN composites were also made to be compared with Cf/LaPO4/SiBCN composites in three-point bending test, fracture toughness test and oxidation test. The results show that Cf/LaPO4/SiBCN composites obtain at least 30% improvement in fracture toughness; in 1350℃/50h oxidation test, Cf/LaPO4/SiBCN composites have the lowest mass loss and the fibers are protected effectively by the coatings, demonstrating the significant increasing in oxidation resistance. Overall, compared with other mentioned coatings, the lanthanum monazite coating enhances much more the high temperature performance of the carbon fiber reinforced SiBCN ceramic matrix composites and promotes the high temperature application potential of the composites.

    Abstract ( 645 ( PDF (2048KB)( 242 Citation

    Phthalic anhydride was used to corrode the aramid fibers (AFs) in order to improve the interfacial compatibility between AFs and recycled polyethylene terephthalate (R-PET). Besides, the intrinsic viscosity and the mechanical properties of the composites of AFs/R-PET could be improved to realize the transformation from waste products to engineering plastics because phthalic anhydride was also the chain extender of R-PET. FE-SEM, XPS, DSC, TG and MFR were used to study the surface morphology and element contents of AFs and the impact fracture morphology, crystallinity and liquidity of the AFs/R-PET composites. The results show that the surface roughness of AFs and the surface oxygen content are increased with the increase of etching time. Compared with the pure R-PET, AFs/R-PET composites are easier to crystallize and the composites have higher bending strength and impact strength. The maximum intrinsic viscosity of the composites reaches 0.9343dL·g-1 and the mechanical properties achieve optimal values when AFs are corroded for 6h.

    Shan-ying XU, Huan-cheng TAN, Yu-pu GUAN, Lu-lu LIU
    2018, 46 (6): 132-140.   DOI: 10.11868/j.issn.1001-4381.2016.001135
    Abstract ( 848 ( PDF (6351KB)( 308 Citation

    In order to predict the elastic constants of 3D four-direction braided composites, unit cell model was established for braided composites with 20°, 30°, 45° braided angle respectively. The elastic properties of the interior cell and the surface cell were predicted using both the stiffness volume average method and the numerical analysis method, and all quasi-static tensile tests were performed on MTS machine. The experimental results, theoretical analysis and numerical simulation results were analyzed. It is found that the axial tensile modulus decreases, and the transverse tensile modulus and transverse shear stiffness increases with the increase of braiding angles because of the decrease of the component of carbon fiber stiffness in the direction of the carrier movement and the increase of the transverse component of carbon fiber stiffness. Tests reveal that the stress-strain curve for the extension tests of specimen of 20° braided angle exhibit linear elastic type, the stress-strain curve of 30° specimen shows nonlinear characters, the stress-strain curve of 45° specimen shows bilinear relation, but the transverse tensile stress-strain curves of all the specimens are basically linear. Combining the longitudinal and transverse tensile test results with the theoretical and numerical data, it is found that the stiffness volume average method and the numerical analysis methods are able to predict the stiffness in the direction of the carrier movement of 3D braided composites well. However, the prediction precision for the transverse stiffness of specimen is not satisfactory, mainly because these methods neglect the interface damage between the fiber and the matrix in tests.

    Abstract ( 808 ( PDF (859KB)( 217 Citation

    The artificial accelerated aging test of low density polyethylene (LDPE) was carried out for different time periods up to 64 days under UV environment to study the photo-oxidative degradation behavior and the rule. The influence on mechanical properties, chemical structure, thermal stability and melting property evolution of LDPE after photo-oxidation aging was studied by mechanics experiments, attenuated total reflection infrared spectroscopy (ATR-FTIR), thermogravimetry analysis (TGA) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). Analytic hierarchy procedure (AHP) was used to determine the weighing values for assessment index of LDPE, and the photo-oxidative degradation comprehensive evaluation model of LDPE was established on the base of improving traditional principal components analysis (PCA). The results show with increasing aging time, the tensile strength, bending strength and impact strength of LDPE are declined by 39.7%, 32.3% and 96.4%, respectively. The concentration of carbonyl and hydroxyl groups are increased, the rupture of molecular chain is intensified. The initial thermal decomposition temperature and melting temperature peak value are declined and the LDPE surface microstructure is seriously damaged and the aging is severe. The comprehensive evaluation parameters exhibit changing trend in three stages. The evaluation results of improved PCA are more reasonable and all the above-mentioned shows that improved PCA is appropriate for the comprehensive evaluation of photo-oxidative degradation behavior of LDPE.
