  • Microstructure and Mechanical Properties of Cu Matrix Composites
           Reinforced by TiB 2 /TiN Ceramic Reinforcements
    • Abstract: Cu matrix composites reinforced by TiB2/TiN ceramic reinforcements (Cu/TBN composites) were prepared by hot pressing method. Prior to the hot pressing, Cu/TiB2/TiN composite powders (CTBN powders), which were used as the starting materials of Cu/TBN composites, were fabricated by self-propagating high-temperature synthesis method. The CTBN particles were found to be in a special core–shell structure with a Cu–Ti alloy core and a TiB2/TiN ceramic shell. The test results presented obvious improvements in mechanical properties. The highest ultimate tensile strength reached up to 297 MPa, 77 MPa higher than that of Cu. And the highest hardness reached up to 70.7 HRF, 15.7 HRF higher than that of Cu. A comparative study indicated that the core–shell structured particles could bring about more obvious strengthening effect than the traditional irregularly shaped particles, which was due to the improved Cu/ceramics interfacial bonding, the linkage strengthening effect of both TiB2 and TiN, and higher load bearing ability of the core–shell structured reinforcements.

  • Predicting Tensile Properties of Friction-Stir-Welded 6063 Aluminum with
           Experimentally Measured Welding Heat Input
    • Abstract: This work aims to develop a reliable method to predict mechanical properties of friction-stir-welded 6xxx-series alloys with experimentally measured welding heat input. A calorimetrical method was utilized to experimentally measure the welding heat input in the friction stir welded of aluminum alloy 6063-T5. Good correlations between the input variables, i.e., welding parameters and physical properties of the materials, and the welding heat inputs obtained with experimental measurements were discovered. The welding heat input can be predicted using the empirical equation derived based on these correlations. Moreover, the results suggested that the thermal conductivities of the welded alloys affected the welding heat input significantly. Mechanical properties, including hardness and tensile properties, of friction-stir-welded aluminum alloy 6063 were in good correlation to the heat input obtained with experimental measurement. These correlations were explained by the evolution of the strengthening precipitates during welding. This work proposed a reliable new route to predict these mechanical responses through the estimation of heat input.

  • Facile Fabrication of Core–Shell Structure Fe 3 O 4 @C Nanodots for
           Enhanced Lithium–Sulfur Batteries
    • Abstract: Lithium sulfur battery (LSB) is widely considered as a next-generation battery system due to its high theoretical energy density of 2567 Wh kg−1. However, several inherent issues obstruct the business application of LSB. To address these issues, we assemble core–shell structure Fe3O4@C nanodots with 5 nm diameter as a valid sulfur host via a convenient organic pyrolysis treatment followed by calcination. The nanosized Fe3O4 particles could expose more chemisorption sites and inhibit the polysulfides shuttle. Moreover, the carbon layer could not only increase the conductivity but also ensure structural integrity during cyclic process. Furthermore, the mesoporous channels around Fe3O4@C could supply sufficient space to load sulfur and physically restrict the shuttle of polysulfides. Thus, the resultant S/Fe3O4@C cathode shows a highly initial capacity of 1089 mAh g−1 at 0.2 C, even retains 655 mAh g−1 over 200 cycles at 1 C.

  • Assessing the Bonding Interface Characteristics and Mechanical Properties
           of Bobbin Tool Friction Stir Welded Dissimilar Aluminum Alloy Joints
    • Abstract: This study focuses on the bonding interface characteristics and mechanical properties of the bobbin tool friction stir welded dissimilar AA6056 and AA2219 aluminum alloy joints using different welding speeds. Voids arise solely in the stir zone at the AA2219 side. A distinct boundary with limited material mixing develops at the middle section of the bonding interface, while excellent material mixing with an irregularly jagged pattern forms at the top and bottom sections of the bonding interface. Increasing the welding speed, the material mixing is rarely changed at the middle section in comparison with the bottom section. Furthermore, a small difference between Guinier–Preston dissolution and Q phase precipitation leads to rare change of hardness in the heat affected zone (HAZ) at the AA6056 side. The increased hardness of the HAZ at the AA2219 side is attributed to avoidance of the dissolution of θ″ phase precipitates. A maximum tensile strength of 181 MPa is obtained at 300 mm min−1. Fractures occur at the AA6056 side near the top and bottom surfaces and at the bonding interface in the middle section of the joints. The regions close to the top and bottom surfaces of the joints show a better ductility.

  • Uneven Evolution of Microstructure, Magnetic Properties and Coercivity
           Mechanism of Mo-Substituted Nd–Ce–Fe–B Alloys
    • Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to study the influence of Mo addition on the phase morphologies, microstructures and magnetic properties of the designated alloys. It is found out that the coercivity Hcj increases unevenly from 12.2 kOe for (Nd0.8Ce0.2)13Fe82B5 to the maximum value of 13.3 kOe for (Nd0.8Ce0.2)13Fe80B5Mo2. The transmission electron microscopy images demonstrate that the grain size decreases with the addition of Mo, which indicates that Mo has grain refinement effect. The correlative analysis gives rise to the conclusion that the coercivity mechanism of the investigated alloys is dominated by pinning type. All in all, the enhancement of the magnetic properties is mainly attributed to the synergistic impact of grain refinement, pinning effects and the microstructural homogenization. The research may shed light on the potential development and application of rare earth-based counterpart magnets.

  • Effect of Pulse and Direct Current Electrodeposition on Microstructure,
           Surface, and Scratch Resistance Properties of Ni–W Alloy and
           Ni–W–SiC Composite Coatings
    • Abstract: The present work aims to study the influence of direct current and pulse current techniques as well as embedded SiC nanoparticles on the mechanical properties of the electrodeposited Ni–W coating. The electrodeposited coatings were studied for morphological, microstructural, mechanical, and scratch resistance properties using the surface roughness tester, scanning electron microscopy, energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, Vickers microhardness, and scratch tester. Application of pulse current exhibited relatively homogeneous and smooth surface of the coatings. A remarkable increment of microhardness was observed in both Ni–W and Ni–W–SiC coatings prepared under pulse current as compared to the direct current technique. Similarly, the scratch test revealed a considerable improvement in the scratch resistance behavior of the Ni–W alloy and the composite coatings from the pulsed current condition. Hence, the application of pulse current not only improved the surface- and microstructure-related properties but also enhanced the Vickers microhardness and scratch resistance properties of the coatings. In addition, the reduction in micro-cracks revealed the improvement in scratch resistance properties of the coatings due to the incorporated SiC nanoparticles into the Ni–W alloy matrix.

  • A Review of Self-healing Metals: Fundamentals, Design Principles and
    • Abstract: Self-healing metals possess the capability to autonomously repair structural damage during service. While self-healing concepts remain challenging to be realized in metals and metallic systems due to the small atomic volume of the mobile atoms, the slow diffusion unless at high temperatures and the strong isotropic metallic bonds, the scientific interest has increased sharply and promising progress is obtained. This article provides a comprehensive and updated review on the developments and limitations associated with the various modes of potentially healable damage induced in metals and alloys, i.e., stress-induced damage, irradiation-induced damage in bulk materials and contact damage in corrosion protective coatings. The spontaneous intrinsic healing mechanisms not requiring external assistance other than the material operating at the right temperature and an assisted healing mechanism with external intervention are reviewed. Promising strategies to achieve self-healing in metals are identified. Finally, we give some prospects for future research directions in self-healing metals.

  • Formation and Relative Stabilities of Core-Shelled L1 2 -Phase
           Nano-structures in Dilute Al–Sc–Er Alloys
    • Abstract: First-principles thermodynamic calculations were carried out at the interface level for understanding the precipitation of coherent L12-phase nano-structures in dilute Al–Sc–Er alloys. All energetics, relevant to bulk substitution, interface formation, interfacial coherent strain and segregation, were calculated and used to evaluate the nucleation and relative stabilities of various possible L12 nano-structures. Only matrix-dissolved solute Er (or Sc) can substitute Sc (or Er) in L12-Al3Sc (or Al3Er). The inter-substitution between L12-Al3Sc and Al3Er is not energy feasible. Ternary L12-Al3(ErxSc1−x) precipitates tend to form the Al3Er-core and Al3Sc-shell structure with a sharp core/shell interface. Three possible formation mechanisms were proposed and examined. The effects of Er/Sc ratio and aging temperature on the relative stabilities of L12-phase nano-structures in Al were also discussed.

  • A Review of Metal Silicides for Lithium-Ion Battery Anode Application
    • Abstract: Lithium batteries (LIBs) with low capacity graphite anode (~ 372 mAh g−1) cannot meet the ever-growing demand for new energy electric vehicles and renewable energy storage. It is essential to replace graphite anode with higher capacity anode materials for high-energy density LIBs. Silicon (Si) is well known to be a possible alternative for graphite anode due to its highest capacity (~ 4200 mAh g−1). Unfortunately, large volume change during lithiation and delithiation has prevented the Si anode from being commercialized. Metal silicides are a promising type of anode materials which can improve cycling stability via the accommodation of volume change by dispersing Si in the metal inactive/active matrix, while maintain greater capacity than graphite. Here, we present a classification of Si alloying with metals in periodic table of elements, review the available literature on metal silicide anodes to outline the progress in improving and understanding the electrochemical performance of various metal silicides, analyze the challenges that remain in using metal silicides, and offer perspectives regarding their future research and development as anode materials for commercial LIBs application.

  • First-Principles Calculations for Stable β-Ti–Mo Alloys Using
           Cluster-Plus-Glue-Atom Model
    • Abstract: Construction of suitable structural models in order to account for chemical short-range orders is the reason behind the difficult multi-scale computational simulation methods for solid solutions. Herein, using Ti–Mo alloys as representative, we used our cluster-plus-glue-atom model to address the chemical short-range orders for body-center cubic lattice. In accordance with the atomic interaction mode, an Mo solute atom would prefer 14 Ti solvent atoms as its nearest neighbors, forming a rhombic-dodecahedral cluster, and some next outer-shell Mo and Ti atoms would serve as the glue atoms, which is formulated as [Mo–Ti14](Mo,Ti)x. The number of glue atoms x corresponds to different spatial distribution of the clusters. One of the formula having good stability is [Mo–Ti14]Mo, i.e., with one Mo as the glue atom. To verify its stability, mechanical properties and electronic density of state are obtained using the first-principles calculations and the Young’s modulus agrees with the experimental values. Also the formulated structural unit [Mo–Ti14]Mo is indeed verified by the cluster expansion method. This work then confirms the existence of simple structural unit covering the nearest neighbors and a few next outer-shell atoms for the Ti–Mo alloy of high structural stability.

  • Characterization and Tribological Properties of Graphene/Copper Composites
           Fabricated by Electroless Plating and Powder Metallurgy
    • Abstract: Self-lubricating copper matrix composites reinforced with graphene were prepared by electroless plating and powder metallurgy. The morphology and structure of graphene, Cu@graphene powder, and Cu@graphene/Cu composites were characterized and the tribological properties of Cu@graphene/Cu composites were investigated. The X-ray diffraction pattern of Cu@graphene confirms the coexistence of characteristic peaks of both copper and graphene, with a weakened characteristic peak of carbon impurity. The obtained morphology of Cu@graphene reveals that the surface of the graphene is completely covered with a uniform and compact copper layer with lots of copper nanoparticles. Raman and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy analyses show that the oxygen functional groups and defects on the surface of the redox graphene can be reduced through the electroless plating process. The tribological results indicate that the coefficient of friction of Cu@graphene/Cu composites initially decreases and then increases with an increase in Cu@graphene content. The lowest coefficient of friction, which is about 29.47% lower than that of pure Cu, is achieved in the Cu@graphene/Cu composites with 3.0 wt% Cu@graphene. The chemical composition and topography of the wear tracks for Cu@graphene/Cu composites infer that the formation of a well-consolidated graphene-rich lubricious tribolayer at the contact surface and a higher microhardness work together to enhance the tribological performance of Cu@graphene/Cu composites.

  • Achieving a High-Strength CoCrFeNiCu High-Entropy Alloy with an
           Ultrafine-Grained Structure via Friction Stir Processing
    • Abstract: High-entropy alloys (HEAs) are a new class of materials with a potential engineering application, but how to obtain ultrafine or nano-sized crystal structures of HEAs has been a challenge. Here, we first presented an equiatomic CoCrFeNiCu HEA with excellent mechanical properties obtained via friction stir processing (FSP). After FSP, the Cu element segregation in the cast CoCrFeNiCu HEA was almost eliminated, and the cast coarse two-phase structure (several micrometers) was changed into an ultrafine-grained single-phase structure (150 nm) with a large fraction of high-angle grain boundaries and nanoscale deformation twins. This unique microstructure was mainly attributed to the severe plastic deformation during FSP, and the sluggish diffusion effect in dynamics and the lattice distortion effect in crystallography for HEAs. Furthermore, FSP largely improved the hardness and yield strength of the CoCrFeNiCu HEA with a value of 380 HV and more than 1150 MPa, respectively, which were > 1.5 times higher than those of the base material. The great strengthening after FSP was mainly attributed to the significant grain refinement with large lattice distortion and nano-twins. This study provides a new method to largely refine the microstructure and improve the strength of cast CoCrFeNiCu HEAs. Graphic

  • Effect of Interactions Among Elements on Diffusion Process Associated with
           γ ′ Coarsening in a Ni-Based Single-Crystal Superalloy
    • Abstract: Coarsening of cuboidal γ′ precipitates and relevant diffusion process in Ni-based single-crystal superalloy CMSX-4 were investigated at 1000, 1020 and 1040 °C for specific times. The γ′ coarsening kinetics followed a cubic rate law with time and was presumably controlled by bulk diffusion of elements in γ matrix. The associated diffusion activation energy was experimentally determined to be about 300 kJ/mol when it is considered the temperature-dependent thermo-physical parameters in modified Lifshitz–Slyozov–Wagner theory. The influence of temperature on γ/γ′ microstructure is briefly discussed based on pseudo-binary [Ni]–[Al] phase diagram. Interactions among elements can effectively raise the local vacancy formation and vacancy–atom exchange barriers close to γ- and γ′-partitioning elements, respectively. Thus, it can significantly reduce the inter-coupling migrations of atoms during the macroscopic cross-diffusion process associated with γ′ coarsening of Ni-based superalloys.

  • Mechanisms of Rhenium on Wettability and Interactions Between Nickel-Base
           Superalloy Melt and Al 2 O 3 -Based Ceramic Material
    • Abstract: A systematic study on the wettability and interactions between superalloy melts with various Re contents and Al2O3-based ceramic moulds was presented in this paper. It was found that the increase of Re content inhibited the interfacial reactions to some extent. With regard to the 0, 1.5 and 3Re alloys, a double reaction layer containing Al2O3 and HfO2 was formed at the interface, but the thickness of reaction layer decreased with the increase of Re content. However, only Al2O3 phase was detected at the interface when the content of Re was 6 wt%, and the interface reaction was the weakest and the thickness of reaction layer was the thinnest. The wetting angle of the alloy/ceramic system increased as the level of Re increased. Moreover, the formation of viscous sand at the interface mainly depended on the change of wetting angle of the system.

  • Influence of Finish Rolling Temperature on Microstructure and Mechanical
           Properties of a 19Cr1.5Mo0.5 W Ferritic Stainless Steel
    • Abstract: A 444-type heat-resistant ferritic stainless steel containing 0.05 wt% Ce (rare earth element) and 2 wt% (Mo + W) was adopted as an experimental material to study the effect of finish rolling temperature on microstructure and texture evolution as well as on mechanical properties and formability. The rolling processes contain hot rolling at two different finish rolling temperatures (860 °C and 770 °C) and annealing, cold rolling and subsequent annealing. It was found that the microstructures after hot rolling and annealing could be refined by lowering finish rolling temperature. The resultant microstructures after cold rolling and annealing were hereditarily refined. Lowering finish rolling temperature can weaken α-fiber texture in hot-rolled or cold-rolled ferritic stainless steel strip, while γ-fiber texture in the final product was homogeneously strengthened. Additionally, enhanced mechanical property and formability in terms of strength and average plastic strain ratio could be obtained via decreasing finish rolling temperature.

  • Effect of Ti Addition on the Microstructure and Property of FeAlCuCrNiMo
           0.6 High-Entropy Alloy
    • Abstract: FeAlCuCrNiMo0.6Tix (x = 0.2, 0.6, 0.8) high-entropy alloys were fabricated with flux-cored wire and surfaced on low-carbon steel by gas metal arc welding. The effect of Ti addition on the microstructures and properties of FeAlCuCrNiMo0.6Tix HEAs surfacing layer was systematically studied. The results show that FeAlCuCrNiMo0.6Tix HEAs surfacing layer exhibits a majority of BCC solid solution based on Fe–Cr phase and a small amount of MC phase. Microhardness and wear tests results show that the addition of Ti can significantly improve the microhardness and wear resistance of the surfacing layer. The microhardness of surfacing layer can reach up to 642 HV0.5, which is about 2.8 times that of the substrate. Meanwhile, the wear mass loss is minimum. Electrochemical corrosion test results show that the addition of Ti can improve the corrosion resistance of surfacing layer, which is better than 304 stainless steel substrate. With the increase in Ti, the corrosion resistance increases first and then decreases. When the Ti content is 0.6, the self-corrosion current density of polarization curve is the smallest, the capacitive impedance radius of electrochemical impedance spectroscopy is the largest, and the corrosion resistance effect is the best.

  • A New Kinetic Mode During the Austenite - to-Ferrite Transformation in
           Fe–Mn and Fe–Mn–Mo Alloys
    • Abstract: The kinetics of isothermal austenite (γ)-to-ferrite (α) transformation at various temperatures in Fe–2Mn and Fe–2Mn–0.5Mo (wt%) alloys is investigated via dilatometry experiments and phase-field modeling. It was interestingly found that Mo addition has a marginal effect on the transformation kinetics. Besides the well-known partitioning and partitionless transformation modes, a new kinetic mode, in which interface migration is controlled by interfacial diffusion, was identified. The phase-field model with considering interfacial segregation could well predict the transformation kinetics and the kinetic mode transition.

  • Microstructure, Tensile Properties and Work Hardening Behavior of an
           Extruded Mg–Zn–Ca–Mn Magnesium Alloy
    • Abstract: A new Mg-2.2 wt% Zn alloy containing 1.8 wt% Ca and 0.5 wt% Mn has been developed and subjected to extrusion under different extrusion parameters. The finest (~ 0.48 μm) recrystallized grain structures, containing both nano-sized MgZn2 precipitates and α-Mn nanoparticles, were obtained in the alloy extruded at 270 °C/0.01 mm s−1. In this alloy, the deformed coarse-grain region possessed a much stronger texture intensity (~ 32.49 mud) relative to the recrystallized fine-grain region (~ 13.99 mud). A positive work hardening rate in the third stage of work hardening curve was also evident in the alloy extruded at 270 °C, which was related to the sharp basal texture and which provided insufficient active slip systems. The high work hardening rate in the fourth stage contributed to the high ductility extruded at 270 °C/1 mm s−1. This alloy exhibited a weak texture, and the examination of fracture surface revealed highly dimpled surfaces. The optimum tensile strength was achieved in the alloy extruded at 270 °C/0.01 mm s−1, and the yield strength, ultimate tensile strength and elongation to failure were ~ 364.1 MPa, ~ 394.5 MPa and ~ 7.2%, respectively. Fine grain strengthening from the recrystallized fine-grain region played the greatest role in the strength increment of this alloy compared with Orowan strengthening and dislocation strengthening in the deformed coarse-grain regions.

  • Microstructure of a Ti–50 wt% Ta alloy produced via laser
           powder bed fusion
    • Abstract: Ti–Ta alloys have been widely studied for biomedical applications due to their high biocompatibility and corrosion resistance. In this work, nearly fully dense and in situ alloyed Ti–50 wt% Ta samples were fabricated by the laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) of mechanically mixed powders. With increased exposure time, and thereby increased laser energy density, insoluble Ta particles were almost dissolved, and a Ti–50 wt% Ta alloy was formed. Cellular and dendritic structures were formed due to constitutional undercooling, which was caused by the high cooling rate of LPBF process. Both retained β phases and α″ phases were observed in the LPBFed Ti–50 wt% Ta alloy. The α″ phase was found at the boundary of the cellular structures, where the tantalum content was not high enough to suppress the bcc lattice transition completely but could suppress the β phase → α′ phase transition.
