Mechanical and electrical properties of low SWNT content 3YTZP composites
Fully dense 3mol% Y2O3-ZrO2 (3YTZP) composites with low single wall carbon nanotube content (0.5, 1 and 1.5vol% SWNT) were prepared by colloidal processing and spark plasma sintering (SPS). SWNT were distributed at ceramic ...
Avalanche criticalities and elastic and calorimetric anomalies of the transition from cubic Cu-Al-Ni to a mixture of 18R and 2H structures
(American Physical Society, 2016)
We studied the two-step martensitic transition of a Cu-Al-Ni shape-memory alloy by calorimetry, acoustic emission (AE), and resonant ultrasound spectroscopy (RUS) measurements. The transition occurs under cooling from the ...
Improvement of Vickers hardness measurement on SWNT/Al2O3 composites consolidated by spark plasma sintering
Dense alumina composites with different carbon nanotube content were prepared by colloidal processing and consolidated by Spark Plasma Sintering (SPS). Single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) were distributed at grain boundaries ...
Effect of high SWNT content on the room temperature mechanical properties of fully dense 3YTZP/SWNT composites
This paper is devoted to correlate the microstructure and room temperature mechanical properties of single-wall carbon nanotube (SWNT) reinforced 3. mol% yttria stabilized tetragonal zirconia with high SWNT content (2.5, ...
Hardness and flexural strength of single-walled carbon nanotube/alumina composites
(Kluwer Academic Publishers, 2014)
This work adds new experimental facts on room temperature hardness and flexural strength of alumina and composites with 1, 2, 5 and 10 vol% single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNT) with similar grain size. Monolithic Al2O3 ...
A Hh-driven gene network controls specification, pattern and size of the Drosophila simple eyes
(Company of Biologists Ltd, 2013)
During development, extracellular signaling molecules interact with intracellular gene networks to control the specification, pattern and size of organs. One such signaling molecule is Hedgehog (Hh). Hh is known to act as ...
Direct magnetocaloric measurements of Fe-B-Cr-X (X = La, Ce) amorphous ribbons
(American Institute of Physics, 2011)
A procedure has been developed to directly measure the adiabatic temperature change of amorphous melt-spun Fe-based ribbons displaying attractive room temperature magnetocaloric properties. Polycrystalline Gd ribbons are ...
Parallel Cellular Automata-based Simulation of Laser Dynamics using Dynamic Load Balancing
(InderScience Publishers, 2008)
We present an analysis of the feasibility of executing a parallel bioinspired model of laser dynamics, based on cellular automata (CA), on the usual target platform of this kind of applications: a heterogeneous non-dedicated ...
Cellular automata simulations on nanocrystallization processes: From instantaneous growth approximation to limited growth
Cellular automata simulations have been performed to simulate the crystallization process under a limited growth approximation. This approximation resembles several characteristics exhibited by nanocrystalline microstructures ...
Magnetic Multilayers as a Way to Increase the Magnetic Field Responsiveness of Magnetocaloric Materials
(American Scientific Publishers, 2012)
The magnetocaloric response of Ni–Cu based multilayers has been studied with the aim of optimizing their magnetic field dependence. In contrast to the behavior of single phase materials, whose peak magnetic entropy change ...
