Effects of the hardened nickel coating on the fatigue behavior of CK45 steel: experimental, finite element method, and artificial neural network modeling, Article Iranian Journal of Materials Science and Engineering ; Volume 14, Issue 4 , 2017 , Pages 81-99 ; 17350808 (ISSN) ; Kashyzadeh, K. R ; Sharif University of Technology
Hardened nickel coating is widely used in many industrial applications and manufacturing processes because of its benefits in improving the corrosion fatigue life. It is clear that increasing the coating thickness provides good protection against corrosion. However, it reduces the fatigue life. Thus, applying a thin layer of coated nickel might give an acceptable corrosion protection with minimum loss of the fatigue life. In the present study, the effects of hardened nickel coating with different thicknesses on the fatigue behavior of CK45 mild steel were experimentally investigated. After conducting the experimental tests, we carried out two different modeling approaches of finite element...

Adding solid lubricant particles such as PTFE, Graphite and MoS2, has major influence on electroless composite nickel coatings in order to make low friction surfaces. Among these lubricants, MoS2 has attracted great attention due to its highest stability under wearing condition. In this work Ni-P-MoS2 composite coatings using MoS2 nano-particles have been made and in the next step, we evaluated tribological properties of these coatings. For exploring these coatings different experiments were utilized, like Scanning Electron Microscope study (SEM), chemical composition analysis exploiting AAS and XRF method, and thickness measurements. Two kinds of surfactants, CTAB and PVP, have been applied...

In order to prevent deterioration of metallic interconnects in solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC), while interacting with glass-ceramic sealant, a nickel electroplated ferritic stainless steel (UNS 430) was used. After applying a layer of powdered glass (SiO2-B2O3-Al2O3-Na2O-BaO-K2O) with thickness around 300-450 μm on the ferritic stainless steel sheets with dimansion of 0.5 × 60 × 60 mm and 0.5 × 10 × 10 mm, samples were heated at temperatures between 770-850 °C and durations of 1 to 15 hours. To evaluate the effect of the Ni layer, two types of sample (only sanded and only electropolished) were also submitted to the same process, and their results were compared with the coated samples.

A two-step pack cementation technique was used to cover nickel-based IN-738LC superalloy with a Cr-aluminide coating layer. The IN-738LC/Cr-aluminide samples were oxidized at 900 °C for 350 and 700 h, isothermally, and 175 and 350 h, cyclically. Each cycle lasted for 25 h. Effects of the isothermal and the cyclic oxidation on (a) morphology, (b) new-phase formation, (c) weight gain, and (d) oxidation reactions were investigated by scanning electron microscopy, electron dispersive spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, and weight gain measurements. From results, it was concluded that the oxygen attack was more severe during the cyclic oxidation than the isothermal procedure. Kinetics of the...

Nickel-Boron-Titania (Ni-B-TiO2) composite coatings were successfully obtained on mild steel (St-37) by simultaneous electroless deposition. TiO2 particles were dispersed in a suspension by ultrasonic irradiation. The surface morphology, particle size, elemental composition and phase analysis of the coatings were characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), inductively coupled plasma (ICP) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). The hardness and friction coefficient of as- plated and heat treated Ni-B and Ni-B-TiO2 composite coatings were determined by Vickers diamond indentation and indentation scratch tests and compared with Ni-B coatings. As a result, the hardness (1263 HV) of the as-plated...

In order to produce a thick near equi-atomic NiTi intermetallic layer on the surface of titanium plate, layers of nickel with thicknesses of 30 μm and 60 μm were electroplated on commercial pure (Cp) titanium and subsequently were heat treated at 850°C and 900°C. The effects of heat treating temperature and the thickness of electroplated nickel on the evolution of the microstructure and mechanical properties were studied. The results confirm the formation of various intermetallic layers in the coatings that substantially affect their hardness. The optimum condition for the formation of a thick NiTi intermetallic layer on the outer surface of the titanium was diffusion treatment of the sample...
