Abstract

The corrosion behaviors of ferrite-pearlite steels before and after intermediate quenching treatment were compared in the simulated bottom plate environment of cargo oil tanks. The results indicate that all tested steels exhibited an enhanced galvanic corrosion caused by the accumulated Fe3C. However, the corrosion resistance of steels could be improved by the change in microstructure from ferrite-pearlite to ferrite-martensite through intermediate quenching treatment, whereas a higher temperature caused an adverse effect. This was mainly due to both the Fe3C morphology and the content of cathodic phase in the steel matrix controlling the area ratio of cathode to anode during the corrosion process. Moreover, the proportion of high-angle grain boundaries and the potential difference in the galvanic couple had a limited effect on the galvanic corrosion.

Abstract

The present research was aimed at lowering the deformation temperature by applying cover tube casing (CTC) to AZ31 magnesium alloy samples subjected to equal channel angular pressing (ECAP) without triggering surface defects and/or fracture. The Cockcroft-Latham (C & L) fracture model was incorporated into finite element simulation and the critical values for a fracture to occur were determined. The fracture was predicted for the samples deformed at 150, 175, and 200 °C without CTC and with CTC having thicknesses of 1 and 4 mm. The predictions of the model were verified with experimental data. It was found that the workability of AZ31 increased with increasing CTC thickness, as a result of a reduction in the maximum principal stress at the top surface, a uniform distribution of strains, and an increase in the critical damage. In practice, the use of CTC led to the possibility of a reduction in deformation temperature by 25 °C. A sound product with a homogeneous grain structure and a mean grain size of 11 μm was achieved at 175 °C. Thus, the ECAP working window for the alloy was enlarged with accompanying benefits in energy consumption, tooling life, and manufacturing costs.

Abstract

We present non-linear optical properties of graphene oxide (GO) doped with low chirality metallic single walled carbon nanotubes (m-SWCNTs) thin films. The weight percentage of the m-SWCNTs was 5, 10, and 20 wt%. High-resolution transmission electron microscope (HRTEM), high resolution scanning electron microscope (HRSEM), Raman, and UV-vis spectroscopy were used to characterize the prepared samples. We have investigated their nonlinear optical properties using open and closed Z-scan technique at Nd:YAG laser at 1064 nm laser pulses (7 ns, 10 Hz). The nonlinear absorption coefficient β, nonlinear refractive index n2, and third order nonlinear susceptibility χ3 were calculated. The results show that all samples exhibit reverse saturable absorption (RSA) because of increasing metallicity and/or partial reduction of GO during laser illumination. The nonlinearity response of the GO/m-SWCNT films increase as the m-SWCNTs percentage increases. The high non-linear optical parameters of the GO/m-SWCNTs films make them as superior candidates for near-infrared (NIR) laser protection applications.

Abstract

Herein, the room-temperature sulfuric acid leaching of copper smelter slag powder in the presence of potassium dichromate was investigated, resulting in the selective extraction of copper with its separation from zinc and iron. To enhance the extraction of copper, mechanical activation in the planetary ball mill and attritor was used. The Taguchi method was applied to determine the optimal conditions for both mechanical activation and leaching. For mechanical activation in the attritor, a rotation speed of 1200 rpm, ball-to-powder ratio of 40 and milling time of 75 min were ideal. Under these conditions, the specific surface area (SBET) could be increased from 1.7 m2/g, for the starting slag, to 59.4 m2/g. According to ANOVA, the most important factor is the rotation speed. For comparison, the slag was subjected also to planetary ball milling using the same conditions and a specific surface area of 116 m2/g was obtained. Leaching conditions that maximize copper recovery and, independently, copper selectivity, were also found. The maximum copper recovery was 87.3%, while the maximum copper selectivity was 97.9%. The most influential parameters in leaching were the concentration of K2Cr2O7 and the liquid-to-solid ratio. The copper selectivity is attributed to better solubility of chalcopyrite (CuFeS2) in comparison with zinc ferrite (ZnFe2O4) and fayalite (FeSiO4) containing the other metals. This study provides a statistical approach for planning the experiments of pretreatment and leaching to efficiently obtain valuable metals from secondary raw resources in an environmentally interesting fashion by using low concentrations of leaching agents and mechanical pretreatment.
