The present paper discusses the thermodynamic properties of the superconducting state which gets induced in the following compounds due to the influence of the high pressure: ScH3( p = 18 GPa) and LaH3(p = 11 GPa). Using the Eliashberg formalism, for the Coulomb pseudopotential equal to 0.1, the following quantities have been determined: the maximum critical temperature ([TC]ScH3= 19.3 K and [TC]LaH3= 22.5 K), the energy gap at the Fermi surface (G), the free energy (F), the thermodynamic critical field (HC), and the specific heat (both for the superconducting (CS) and the normal (CN) state). Then, the dimensionless parameters, namely, RG≡ G(0)/kBTC, RH≡ TCCN(TC)/HC 2(0), and RC≡ (CS/(TC- CN(TC))/CN(TC), have been obtained. Those ratios deviate from the predictions of the BCS theory in the case of the studied compounds: [RG]ScH3= 3.85, [RG]LaH3= 3.92, [RH]ScH3= 0.160, [RH]LaH3= 0.154, [RC]ScH3= 1.84, and [RC]LaH3= 2.09. In the last step, it has been proven that the ratio of the electron effective mass (me∗) to the electron band mass (me) takes relatively high values, which are weakly dependent on the temperature. For example, it has been shown that [me∗/me]ScH3= 1.833 and [me∗/me]LaH3= 1.845 for T = TC. © 2014 IOP Publishing Ltd. Source

The electron-doped silicene under the influence of the biaxial tensile strain is predicted to be the phonon-mediated superconductor. By using the Eliashberg formalism, we investigate the thermodynamic properties of the superconducting silicene in the case when the tension is 5% and the electron doping equals 3.5×1014cm-2. Under such conditions, silicene monolayer is expected to exhibit the highest superconducting transition temperature (TC). In particular, based on the electron-phonon spectral function and assuming a wide range of the Coulomb pseudopotential values (μ∗ ∈ 〈0.1,0.3〉) it is stated that the superconducting transition temperature decreases from 18.7 K to 11.6 K. Similar behavior is observed in the case of the zeroth temperature superconducting energy gap at the Fermi level: 2Δ(0)∈ 〈6.68,3.88〉 meV. Other thermodynamic parameters differ from the predictions of the Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer theory. In particular, the ratio of the energy gap to the critical temperature changes in the range from 4.14 to 3.87. The ratio of the specific heat jump to the specific heat in the normal state takes the values from 2.19 to 2.05, and the ratio of the critical temperature and specific heat in the normal state to the thermodynamic critical field increases from 0.143 to 0.155. It is also determined that the maximum value of the electron effective mass equals 2.11 of the electron band mass. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. Source

A mathematical description for the (Zn) - coating formation with the presence of flux in the zinc bath is presented. This description includes the progressive vanishing of the products of the flux disintegration. A function which expresses the flux vanishing is formulated. The solidification of some phase sub-layers in the (Zn) - coating is considered with the use of a hypothetical pseudo-ternary phase diagram Fe-Zn-flux. Some relationships are formulated to define the varying Zn - solute redistribution as observed across the sub-layers. The relationships are based on the mass balance analyzed for the coating / bath / flux system. An amount of the growing phase in a given sub-layers is also defined mathematically. © 2014, Committee of Metallurgy. All rights reserved. Source

THIS PAPER CONCERNS THE MATHEMATICAL and numerical modelling of thermal phenomena and phase transformations in the solid state accompanying laser heating processes. Thermal phenomena with the motion of a liquid metal in the fusion zone are analyzed on the basis of numerical solution of equations for mass, momentum and energy conservation. Phase transformations in solid state are estimated using classic models of the kinetics of phase transformations as well as continuous heating transformations (CHT) and continuous cooling transformations (CCT) diagrams for S355 steel. Computer simulations are executed for the laser welding process in order to predict the influence of welding speed on the structural composition as well as thermal and structural strains in the joint.

The aim of the present work is to explore the physical properties of the transition-metal based antiperovskite MgCNi3 in superconducting state. In particular, the critical value of the Coulomb pseudopotential and temperature dependence of the energy gap, specific heat, thermodynamic critical field and London penetration depth are theoretically analyzed within the framework of the Eliashberg formalism. Moreover, we determined the dimensionless ratios which are related to the above thermodynamic functions: 2Δ(0)/kBTC=4.19, ΔC(TC)/CN(TC)=2.27 and TCCN(TC)/HC2(0)=0.141. Our calculations show that obtained results significantly diverge from the values predicted by the BCS model due to the strong-coupling corrections and retardation effect existing in investigated antiperovskite. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.
