    Mechanical- activated phase formation of NiTi in the presence of nanoparticles [electronic resource]

    , Article Journal of Nano ; October 2013, Volume 08, Issue 05 Farvizi, M ; Ebadzadeh, T ; Vaezi, M. R ; Simchi, A. (Abdolreza) ; Kim, H. S ; Sharif University of Technology
    Effect of Al2O3 nanoparticles (80 nm) on the grain structure and phase formation in Ni-50Ti system during high-energy mechanical alloying (MA) was studied. While the formation of NiTi B2 phase occurs progressively during MA, it is shown that the hard inclusions cause abrupt phase formation at short milling times, particularly at higher nano-Al2O3 contents. High-resolution transmission electron microscopy showed significant grain refinement in the presence of alumina nanoparticles to sizes less than 10 nm, which precedes the formation of semicrystalline structure and reduces the diffusion length and thus accelerates the phase formation. The composite powder reached steady-state MA condition...

    As one of the key technologies for high performance electronic devices, composite solders have been recently developed to improve thermal and mechanical properties of solder joints. In this research, melt spinning was employed to fabricate a lead-free based nanocomposite solder for electronic application materials via introducing Ni-coated Al2O3 nanoparticles (0.1 wt%) into a Sn-Ag-Cu ternary eutectic alloy during rapid solidification. These surface-modified nanoparticles were synthesized by an in situ chemical reduction method. The effect of rapid solidification on the distribution of reinforcing nanoparticles, microstructural evolution, and solderability of the tin alloy were studied....

    , Article Materials Science in Semiconductor Processing ; Vol. 27, issue , 2014 , p. 711-718 Mohammadi, M. R ; Sharif University of Technology
    Nanostructured TiO2-Al2O3 films and powders were prepared by a straightforward aqueous particulate sol-gel route. Titanium (IV) isopropoxide and aluminum chloride were used as precursors, and hydroxypropyl cellulose was used as a polymeric fugitive agent in order to increase the porosity. The effect of Al:Ti molar ratio was studied on the crystallization behavior of the products. X-ray diffraction (XRD) revealed that the powders crystallized at 800°C, containing anatase-TiO2, rutile-TiO2 and cubic-Al2O3 phases. Furthermore, it was found that Al2O3 retarded the anatase to rutile transformation. Transmission electron microscope (TEM) image showed that one of the smallest crystallite sizes was...

    The present work focuses on the preparation of V2C MXene from Al-V2O5-C mixture heated in a microwave and etched under HF-based process. In the first stage of process, microwave heating caused the formation of an uncommon periodic pattern of V2AlC-Al2O3 MAX phase. In the second stage of process the aggressive leaching (temperature of 80 °C for 96 h) was performed in HF to remove the interlayer aluminum and Al2O3 particles as impurities. The leaching was not completed at room temperature even after 24 h. XRD and FESEM analyses confirmed the successful formation of V2C MXene and its distorted layer, respectively. HRTEM, XPS and Raman analyses also confirmed a perfect structure of V2C MXene. It...

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Farzi, Amir Hossein (Author) ; Hamzeh Louyan, Tayyebeh (Supervisor)
    Sulfur oxides are categorized as one of the most important poisoning and activity-reducer groups acting on the catalytic converters present in the exhaust treatment systems. In the present work, interactions of the SOX species with diesel oxidation catalysts (DOCs) are investigated by implementing a kinetic modeling approach. Experimental data obtained from a catalyst of this type, i.e., Pt/γ-Al2O3, was employed and a multi-step microkinetic model was developed in Matlab 2018b® to proxy the poisoning effect of the adsorption of surface sulfur species and their desorption behavior. The microkinetic model was run to describe the individual SO2 and SO3 adsorption-desorption process using the...

    In order to make a Na–Y zeolite with Si/Al ratio of 2.27 more acidic with a higher volume of mesopores, a combination of different and consecutive methods including; chemical (i.e.; utilizing different compounds, such as NH4F and EDTA) and thermal/hydrothermal (i.e.; implementing calcination/steaming) methods, were employed for modification and dealumination. The combination of acidic-hydrothermal dealumination method led to a further structural collapse compared to that of the acidic calcination. In comparison with the other dealumination methods, the fluorination strategy (i.e.; utilizing NH4F) resulted in a zeolite with higher crystallinity, acidity, and specific surface area. The...

    , Article Journal of Molecular Liquids ; Volume 220 , 2016 , Pages 961-969 ; 01677322 (ISSN) Zeibi Shirejini, S. R ; Rashidi, S ; Abolfazli Esfahani, J ; Sharif University of Technology
    This paper simulates Al2O3-water nanofluid flow and forced convection around a rotating circular cylinder. The governing parameters are Reynolds number (1 ≤ Re ≤ 100), solid volume fraction of nanoparticles (0 ≤ φ ≤ 0.05) and non-dimensional rotation rate (0 ≤ α ≤ 3). The simulations are performed to study the effects of mentioned parameters on the heat transfer rate and fluid flow characteristics. The governing equations including the continuity, momentum, and energy equations are solved with a finite volume method. It is observed that the reduction of heat transfer with increase in rotation rate is in the vicinity of 6.9% and 32% for Re = 5 and 100, respectively at φ = 0.05. Furthermore,...

    , Article Powder Metallurgy ; Volume 52, Issue 2 , 2009 , Pages 151-157 ; 00325899 (ISSN) Razavi Hesabi, Z ; Kamrani, S ; Simchi, A ; seyed Reihani, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    This paper presents experimental results on the synthesis of nanostructured aluminium matrix nanocomposite powders by comilling of nanoscaled SiC and Al2O3 particles and micrometric aluminium powder. The effect of the nanometric reinforcement particles on the mechanical milling (MA) process of the soft matrix was studied by scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy, laser particle size analyser and standard metallographic techniques. It was found that at the early stage of milling, the nanoparticles are smeared on the surface of the aluminium powder and thus do not significantly contribute in the MA process. As the milling continues, the hard...

    Diesel oxidizing catalysts (DOCs) based on precious metals of Platinum and Palladium are among the most important and most widely used catalysts in the exhaust aftertreatment system of diesel cars. DOCs are used to oxidize CO and hydrocarbons to reduce their emissions to the environment. In spite of the excellent performance of DOCs, sulfur exposure can lead to their deactivation. Sulfur is mainly in the form of SO2 at the combustion chamber exit, which can be further oxidezed to SO3 on the DOC. The deactivation impact of SO2 and SO3 on DOCs are different, with SO3 leadig to higher degrees of deactivation. In this study, a kinetic model for SO2 oxidation on a bimetallic Pt-Pd-based catalyst...

    In this present work, the softening behaviour of Cu-1·1 wt-%Al2O3 alloy containing nanometric alumina particles was investigated. Single pass equal channel angular pressing was first applied on cylindrical specimens, and then, the deformed samples were subjected to annealing treatments in the temperature range of 700-1000°C. Afterwards, finite element analysis, microstructural observations, Vickers hardness and shear punch testing were employed to study strain distribution as well as the recrystallisation behaviour of the examined alloy. It was found that the alloy is softened at 800°C or above, which shows its high thermal stability. Furthermore, a very fine completely recrystallised...

    Al2O3-SiC composite ceramics were prepared by pressureless sintering with and without the addition of MgO, TiO2 and Y2O3 as sintering aids. The effects of these compositional variables on final density and hardness were investigated. In the present article at first α-Al2O3 and β-SiC nano powders have been synthesized by sol-gel method separately by using AlCl 3, TEOS and saccharose as precursors. Pressureless sintering was carried out in nitrogen atmosphere at 1600 °C and 1630 °C. The addition of 5 vol.% SiC to Al2O3 hindered densification. In contrast, the addition of nano MgO and nano TiO2 to Al 2O3-5 vol.% SiC composites improved densification but Y2O3 did not have positive effect on...
