A low-temperature powder chromizing technology was developed by applying direct current field (DCF) between the treated sample and the powder agents. The cross-sectional microstructure was studied, and the chromizing coating thickness and high temperature oxidation resistance were investigated. The results show that DCF can significantly reduce the treating temperature and heating duration comparing with the conventional powder chromizing processes, thus providing a practical approach with great energy and time saving. When the treating temperature was in the range of 700°C-850°C, the chromizing coatings with thickness larger than 60 μm were produced by applying appropriate intensity of DCF. It was also found that DCF could not only heat the sample, but also form temperature gradient between the two electrodes. The chromizing coating rapidly formed at lower temperature exhibits good oxidation resistance below 700°C.

Effect of homogenization treatment on microstructure of Bi-Mn-Fe alloy was investigated by means of scanning electron microscope (SEM) and energy dispersive spectrometer (EDS). The results show that as-cast microstructure of Bi-Mn-Fe alloy consists of three phases: BiMn, Mn(Fe) and Bi. For permanent cast Bi-Mn-Fe alloy, Bi distributed discretely in the alloy. For liquid Bi-Mn-Fe alloy quenched in water, Bi distributed continuously in the alloy. The homogenization treatment of Bi-Mn-Fe alloy at 400°C does not change the phase constituent of the alloy. The longer the homogenization time is, the more the amount of BiMn phase. For permanent cast Bi-Mn-Fe alloy, the amount of BiMn phase changed no longer after 16 h homogenization at 400°C. For liquid Bi-Mn-Fe alloy quenched in water, the amount of BiMn phase did not change when the homogenization time was longer than 4 h. After homogenization, the morphology of BiMn phase in Bi-Mn-Fe alloy changed from discrete distribution or isolation to continuous distribution. The amount of BiMn phase in Bi-Mn-Fe alloy annealed at 300°C was more than that at 400°C and it changed no longer when the homogenization time exceeded 8 h.

The present work focuses on reverse modification of Al-5. wt.%Ti-1. wt.%B master alloy on the structural characteristics and mechanical properties of hypoeutectic ZnAl4Y alloy. The results shows that with the increase of the adding amount of master alloy to ZnAl4Y alloy, the morphology and the kind of primary phase as well as the amount of eutectic structure of the modified alloy vary considerably. With the increase of the adding amount of Al-5. wt.%Ti-1. wt.%B, the tensile strength and the hardness of modified ZnAl4Y alloy increase. When the adding amount is 0.5. wt.%, the impact toughness and the elongation of the alloy reach the maximum. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.

Thermal oxidation treatment is a convenient and environmental friendly technique that can be used to harden the surface of titanium alloys, and hence improve the poor properties of the materials. The aim of the paper is to study the oxidizing kinetics of the process at different temperatures. With this purpose, pure titanium TA2 was subjected to thermal oxidation (TO) treatment in a conventional muffle furnace at 500°C~1050°C for 20mins~930mins under air atmosphere and cooled in the air. The surface morphology of the oxide layer at various temperatures was observed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The weight gain after oxidation treatment under different testing condition was measured and calculated. It is concluded that the oxidizing kinetics at 600°C~750°C followed parabolic law, and the parabola rate constant of Kp was investigated. The oxide layer formed at temperatures lower than 800°C is dense and protectable, while it is getting very loose at temperatures higher than 800°C. © (2012) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

An energy-saving and high-efficient powder Al and Si codeposition process was employed on 1045 steel, the new technology was mainly based on applying direct current field (DCF) with proper parameters between the treated samples and the powder. The microstructure, thickness and the phase constituents of the coating were analyzed by OM and XRD. The high temperature oxidation resistance for a total duration of 120h and the corrosion resistance in 10% H 2SO4for 8h were investigated. The results showed that DCF could lower heating temperature and accelerate the diffusion rate. The phase of the coatings with DCF was composed of Al0.7Fe3Si 0.3and AlFe3.The treated samples had good high temperature oxidation resistance and corrosion resistance in 10% H2SO 4 solution. © (2011) Trans Tech Publications. © (2011) Trans Tech Publications.

The influence of friction on deformation behavior of copper rods during the continuous ECAP process (a modified C2S2 for the processing of rods and wires) was analyzed by using DEFORM-2D finite element method. The effect of friction on the stress and strain distribution, strain homogeneity and the torque-time curves was investigated. In the modified C2S2 process, the effective stress distributions are symmetrically concentrated on the shear plane, but there is an inadequate length of the plastic deformation zone. The effective strain shows a distorted fan shape in the shear deformation zone. As the friction factor increases the distorted fan shape tends to be normal and thinner, indicating that the bigger the friction factor, the more homogeneous the shear deformation. The effective strain is uniform across more than 70% thickness of the specimen. The assumed shear deformation is further divided into three stages, which can be explained by the torque-time curves. © (2012) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

Microstructure, mechanical properties and electrical conductivity in Cu-0.73%Cr alloy after HPT process and the subsequent aging treatment have been investigated. Ultrafine grained structure with the grain size ∼150 nm has been achieved after the HPT and the subsequent aging treatment. Ultrafine grains with some growth twins were preserved in the overaged state, showing high thermal stability. The peak microhardness and tensile strength of Cu-0.73%Cr alloy after the HPT was found at 480 °C for 2 hours. Electrical conductivity shows an increase trend in the different aging states.

The effect of overheating treatment on the crystal orientation of the Tb0.27Dy0.73Fe1.9 alloy was investigated. The results indicated that different overheating treatment conditions could obtain different crystal orientation. It means that overheating treatment affects the process of Tb0.27Dy0.73Fe1.9 solidification. The conjectural discussions of these results are also presented. © (2012) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
