    Internal sensor measurement to reduce the need of coordinate measuring machines2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis presents the approach of determining the machining  errors on a five axis CNC machine using sensors already fitted in the machine to extract valuable data up on process called CITE(CNC Integrity Tracing Equipment) system and measuring the machined workpiece geometry using CMM(Coordinate measurement machine). CITE measurement system is the data acquisition hardware and software system developed by University West for collecting position information from encoders of a machine tool. The collected information could then be used to assess the quality and adjustment of a machine tool, CNC programs and the CNC control parameters. The aim of this study is to examine the roundness and concentricity detection capacity of the CITE system by conducting different milling methods and a turning process. In an example cutting of a workpiece, the CITE measurement system was used for recording the machining process. After that, radial error, centre point deviation and circle roundness errors, analysed using MATLAB based on collected CNC tool movement data. CMM measurement used to verify the results obtained from the CITE measurement system. The investigation conducted on the small circles shows that the CITE measurement system have capability of identifying radial errors in different method of millings (slot, up and down). Centre point deviation and roundness errors measured by the CITE system doesn`t show significant differences between milling methods as seen on CMM measurement.

    Remote temperature sensing on and beneath atmospheric plasma sprayed thermal barrier coatings using thermographic phosphors2016In: Surface & Coatings Technology, ISSN 0257-8972, E-ISSN 1879-3347, Vol. 302, 359-367 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Investigations on remote temperature sensing of yttria stabilized zirconia (YSZ) thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) at the surface and at the bond-coat/top-coat interface were carried out. Using Y2O3:Eu thermographic phosphor as an embedded temperature sensing layer, sub-surface temperature probing through 300 mu m of atmospheric plasma sprayed YSZ is demonstrated. The Y2O3:Eu thermographic phosphor displays a temperature sensitivity ranging between 400 degrees C up to a maximum of 900 degrees C when utilizing the luminescence originating from the 611 nm emission band. Dysprosium stabilized zirconia (10 wt.% DySZ), a TBC material, is also investigated and established as a temperature sensor from 400 degrees C up to a temperature of 1000 degrees C using both the intensity decay time and emission intensity ratio methods. In addition, the luminescence of presumed optically inactive YSZ materials was spectroscopically investigated in terms of optical interferences caused by impurities. A validation temperature probing measurement through 300 mu m of YSZ top-coat was successfully performed in a SGT-800 Siemens burner running at six different operating conditions in an atmospheric combustion rig.

    Influence of radial depth of cut on entry conditions and dynamics in face milling application2017In: Journal of Superhard Materials, ISSN 1063-4576, Vol. 39, no 4, 259-270 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The choice of milling cutter geometry and appropriate cutting data for certain milling application is of vital importance for successful machining results. Unfavorable selection of cutting conditions might give rise to high load impacts that cause severe cutting edge damage. Under some circumstances the radial depth of cut in combination with milling cutter geometry might give unfavorable entry conditions in terms of cutting forces and vibration amplitudes. This phenomenon is originated from the geometrical features that affect the rise time of the cutting edge engagement into workpiece at different radial depths of cut. As the radial depth of cut is often an important parameter, particularly when machining difficult-to-cut materials, it is important to explore the driving mechanism behind vibrations generation. In this study, acceleration of the workpiece is measured for different radial depths of cut and cutting edge geometries. The influence of the radial depth of cut on the dynamical behavior is evaluated in time and frequency domains. The results for different radial depths of cut and cutting geometries are quantified using the root mean square value of acceleration. The outcome of this research study can be used both for the better cutting data recommendations and improved tool design.

    Influence of cutting edge geometry on force build-up process in intermittent turning2016In: Procedia CIRP, ISSN 2212-8271, E-ISSN 2212-8271, Vol. 46, 364-367 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the intermittent turning and milling processes, during the entry phase the cutting edges are subjected to high impact loads that can give rise to dynamical and strength issues which in general cause tool life reduction. In this study the effect of geometrical features of the cutting tool on the force generation during the entry phase is investigated. Cutting forces are measured by a stiff dynamometer at a high sampling frequency. In addition, the chip load area is analyzed and related to the measured cutting force. The results show that micro-geometrical features, in particular the protection chamfer, significantly affect the force generation during the entry phase.

    Multi-Length Scale Tribology of Electrophoretically Deposited Nickel-Diamond Coatings2017In: JOM: The Member Journal of TMS, ISSN 1047-4838, E-ISSN 1543-1851, Vol. 69, no 2, 227-235 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Electrophoretically deposited (EPD) nickel and its composite coatings are widely used to enhance the life span of continuous ingot casting molds in the steel, aerospace and automotive industries. This article reports the effect of different concentrations of diamond particles (2.5–10 g/L) on the wear mechanism of EPD Ni. The distribution of diamond particles in the Ni matrix was observed using Voronoi tessellation. Variation in COF was observed by a fretting wear test to be 0.51 ± 0.07 for Ni, which decreases to 0.35 ± 0.03 for the Ni-diamond coatings. The wear volume of the coatings with 7.5 g/L concentration of diamond was observed to be a minimum (0.051 ± 0.02 × 10−3 mm3) compared with other composite coatings. Further, the micro-scratch testing of the coatings also exhibited a reduced COF (0.03–0.12) for 7.5 g/L diamond concentration compared with Ni (0.08–0.13). Higher wear resistance of the diamond-added coatings (optimum 7.5 g/L concentration) is due to the balance between the dispersion strengthening mechanism and the enhancement of the load-bearing capacity due to the incorporation of diamond particles. Thus, these composites can be used for applications in automotive and aerospace industries. © 2016 The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society

    Technology commercialization in advanced materials sector: Indian context2017In: Journal of Intellectual Property Rights, ISSN 0971-7544, E-ISSN 0975-1076, Vol. 22, no 3, 154-167 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study is aimed at developing insights into the Technology Value Chain (TVC) of advanced materials-based technologies using a scenario in which technology has been transferred by a Research and Technology Organization (RTO) to a Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) in the Indian context. A Conceptual Theoretical Model (CTM) using constructs from existing TVC models is used as a basis for the case study described in this paper. This model is refined using actual evidence from an Indian RTO - the International Advanced Research Centre for Powder Metallurgy and New Materials (ARCI), Hyderabad. The TVC of ARCI’s proprietary Detonation Spray Coating (DSC) technology is used to expand upon the CTM as well as to provide new insights wherever possible. The TVC adopted for DSC includes technology incubation and proof of concept in advance of transferring the technology. These strategies, aided by government funding of the technology recipient companies, were observed to play an important role in successful commercialization. © 2017, National Institute of Science Communication and Information Resources (NISCAIR).

    Energy and Cost Estimation of a Feature-based Machining Operation on HRSA2017In: Procedia CIRP, ISSN 2212-8271, E-ISSN 2212-8271, Vol. 61, no Supplement C, 511-516 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Forward-looking manufacturing companies aim for sustainable production with low environmental footprint. This is true also for aerospace engine-makers, although their environmental impact mostly occurs during the use-phase of their products. Materials, such as Nickel alloys, are used for special applications where other materials will not withstand tough working conditions in terms of pressure and temperature. Heat Resistant Super Alloys are, however, considered difficult to machine and cutting tools will wear off rapidly. In this paper, a simple way to estimate the energy required, the cost and environmental footprint to produce a work piece using standard engineering software is presented. The results show that for a hypothetical 3 tonne work piece, Inconel 718 will be considerably cheaper and require less water but will require more energy, and has considerably larger CO2 footprint than Waspaloy.

    Finite element modelling and characterisation of chip curl in nose turning process2017In: International Journal of Machining and Machinability of Materials, Vol. 19, no 3, 277-295 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Finite element (FE) modelling of machining provide valuable insights into its deformation mechanics. Evaluating an FE model predicted chip morphology requires characterisation of chip shape, chip curl and chip flow angles. In this study, a chip morphology characterisation methodology is developed using computed tomography (CT), high-speed imaging and Kharkevich model equations enabling evaluation of FE model’s chip morphology prediction accuracy. Chip formation process in nose turning of AISI 1045 steel is simulated using a 3D FE model for varying feed rate and depth of cut and evaluated against experimental investigations using the employed methodology. The study shows that the methodology is able to characterise chip morphology in nose turning process accurately and enables evaluation of FE model’s chip morphology prediction accuracy. This can enable the finite element model to be deployed in cutting tool design for chip breaker geometry design.

    Stresses and Cracking During Chromia-Spinel-NiO Cluster Formation in TBC Systems2015In: Journal of thermal spray technology (Print), ISSN 1059-9630, E-ISSN 1544-1016, Vol. 24, no 6, 1002-1014 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Thermal barrier coatings (TBC) are used in gas turbines to reduce the temperatures in the underlying substrate. There are several mechanisms that may cause the TBC to fail; one of them is cracking in the coating interface due to extensive oxidation. In the present study, the role of so called chromia-spinel-NiO (CSN) clusters in TBC failure was studied. Such clusters have previously been found to be prone to cracking. Finite element modeling was performed on a CSN cluster to find out at which stage of its formation it cracks and what the driving mechanisms of cracking are. The geometry of a cluster was obtained from micrographs and modeled as close as possible. Nanoindentation was performed on the cluster to get the correct Young’s moduli. The volumetric expansion associated with the formation of NiO was also included. It was found that the cracking of the CSN clusters is likely to occur during its last stage of formation as the last Ni-rich core oxidizes. Furthermore, it was shown that the volumetric expansion associated with the oxidation only plays a minor role and that the main reason for cracking is the high coefficient of thermal expansion of NiO. © 2015 ASM International

    Selection of chatter-free milling conditions using vibration frequency measurements2016In: The 7th International Swedish Production Symposium, SPS16, Conference Proceedings: 25th – 27th of October 2016, Lund: Swedish Production Academy , 2016, 1-6 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Unwanted vibration of the tool with respect to the workpiece, known as chatter, can damage machine tool, cutting tool, and the surface finish of the workpiece in a machining operation such a milling. These vibrations could be avoided by reducing the depth of cut, but this approach hurts the productivity and reduces material removal rate. Previous studies have established methods, known as stability prediction methods that provide that enable using large depth of cuts while avoiding chatter. The calculation of stability lobes commonly starts by measurement of dynamic properties of the machining structure. This paper investigates an alternative approach, in which vibration frequencies gathered during test cuts with the target machining system are used to identifying the modal parameters of the machining system in its operational condition. An earlier method that was based on a one dimensional dynamics model is modified to use relationships developed for a two dimensional model that describes the dynamics of spindles and tools with axisymmetric dynamics. This approach improves the stability lobe prediction considerably as shown in results.

    Sensitivity of Axis Tracking Errors of Machine Tools to Tool Wear in Drilling2016In: The 7th International Swedish Production Symposium, SPS16, Conference Proceedings: 25th – 27th of October 2016, Lund: Swedish Production Academy , 2016, 1-7 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Axis Tracking Errors (ATEs) of the active and inactive axis of numerically controlled machine tools are presented as new means of detection of tool wear that forgo expensive sensors or modifications of the machining structure, however, very little has been published about their capabilities or limitations as signal source for monitoring. In this paper the ATEs and cutting forces in drilling tests in two different machine tools, with drills of varying wear levels are measured. The sensitivity to wear is compared by introducing Percent Deviation from New Tool (PDFNT) factor, which is applied to the peak-to-peak values of the signals. While the ATEs are very small in magnitude, they are highly sensitive to wear levels, with PDFNTs reaching to 1000% for some axis. In addition, the standard deviation of PDFNTs calculated in drilling of seven holes with the same tool represents the repeatability of ATEs. The PDFNTs for ATEs are rather repeatable, but less repeatable than the PDFNTs of the axial drilling force. Furthermore it is shown that ATEs of different machine tools have different levels of sensitivity to wear levels which necessitates calibrating of monitoring systems using ATEs for each machine tool separately.

    Influence of Isothermal Heat Treatment on Porosity and Crystallite Size in Axial Suspension Plasma Sprayed Thermal Barrier Coatings for Gas Turbine Applications2017In: Coatings, ISSN 2079-6412, Vol. 7, no 1, 4Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    xial suspension plasma spraying (ASPS) is an advanced thermal spraying technique, which enables the creation of specific microstructures in thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) used for gas turbine applications. However, the widely varying dimensional scale of pores, ranging from a few nanometers to a few tenths of micrometers, makes it difficult to experimentally measure and analyze porosity in SPS coatings and correlate it with thermal conductivity or other functional characteristics of the TBCs. In this work, an image analysis technique carried out at two distinct magnifications, i.e., low (500×) and high (10,000×), was adopted to analyze the wide range of porosity. Isothermal heat treatment of five different coatings was performed at 1150 °C for 200 h under a controlled atmosphere. Significant microstructural changes, such as inter-columnar spacing widening or coalescence of pores (pore coarsening), closure or densification of pores (sintering) and crystallite size growth, were noticed in all the coatings. The noted changes in thermal conductivity of the coatings following isothermal heat treatment are attributable to sintering, crystallite size growth and pore coarsening

    Thermal Conductivity in Suspension Sprayed Thermal Barrier Coatings: Modeling and Experiments2017In: Journal of thermal spray technology (Print), ISSN 1059-9630, E-ISSN 1544-1016, Vol. 26, no 1-2, 71-82 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Axial suspension plasma spraying (ASPS) can generate microstructures with higher porosity and pores in the size range from submicron to nanometer. ASPS thermal barrier coatings (TBC) have already shown a great potential to produce low thermal conductivity coatings for gas turbine applications. It is important to understand the fundamental relationships between microstructural defects in ASPS coatings such as crystallite boundaries, porosity etc. and thermal conductivity. Object-oriented finite element (OOF) analysis has been shown as an effective tool for evaluating thermal conductivity of conventional TBCs as this method is capable of incorporating the inherent microstructure in the model. The objective of this work was to analyze the thermal conductivity of ASPS TBCs using experimental techniques and also to evaluate a procedure where OOF can be used to predict and analyze the thermal conductivity for these coatings. Verification of the model was done by comparing modeling results with the experimental thermal conductivity. The results showed that the varied scaled porosity has a significant influence on the thermal conductivity. Smaller crystallites and higher overall porosity content resulted in lower thermal conductivity. It was shown that OOF could be a powerful tool to predict and rank thermal conductivity of ASPS TBCs.

    Suspension Plasma Spraying (SPS) is an emerging plasma spray technique which overcomes the difficulties typically associated with feeding of fine powders (submicron or nano-sized) in conventional Atmospheric Plasma Spraying (APS) to develop interesting microstructural features for varied engineering applications, such as wear resistance, corrosion/oxidation protection, thermal barrier, etc. Another breakthrough in plasma spraying pertains to the advent of systems that allow axial injection of feedstock which considerably improves thermal exchange between the plasma plume and the injected feedstock, thereby enabling substantial enhancement in deposition rates/efficiency.

    The present study utilizes both the above advances in plasma spraying to demonstrate the ability to deposit various function-dependent coating architectures by sequential/simultaneous axial injection of both powder and a suspension feedstock, henceforth referred to as hybrid plasma spray. The results amply demonstrate the flexibility and versatility of the hybrid spray process for production of superior function dependent coating architectures. Sim-ultaneous injection of the two feedstocks to form composite coatings, which is the most challenging from a processing standpoint as it requires identification of a process window which is suitable for both powder and suspension, was investigated in particular detail using deposition of Al2O3-YSZ composites as a case study. Composite coating architectures produced by hybrid spraying showed good homogeneity and the microstructure of the coating was characterized by presence of multi-scale features attributable to co-deposition of powder (micron-sized Al2O3) and suspension (involving fine YSZ powder) feedstock.

    In order to better understand the role of particle size and the implications of a distributed second phase on the tribological behavior of coatings, properties of the above mentioned powder-suspension hybrid coatings were also comprehensively compared with (a) Al2O3 coatings deposited using powder (b) Al2O3 coatings deposited using suspension and (c) Al2O3-YSZ coatings deposited using both constituents as suspensions. It has been observed that fine particle size of the feedstock leads to improved tribological performance of the coating in comparison with micron-sized powder feed-stock. In addition, introduction of fine second phase into conventional coating using the hybrid approach has shown significant improvement in tribological response of the conventional coatings. However introduction of fine second phase in a fine structured coating matrix showed negligible effect on the tribological response of the coating.

    Axial suspension plasma spraying of Al2O3 coatings for superior tribological properties2017In: Surface & Coatings Technology, ISSN 0257-8972, E-ISSN 1879-3347, Vol. 315, 80-87 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Suspension plasma spray is a relatively new thermal spray technique which enables feeding of fine powder to produce advanced coatings for varied applications. This work investigates the difference in structure and performance of Al2O3 coatings manufactured using conventional micron-sized powder feedstock and a suspension of sub-micron to few micron sized powder. Axial injection was implemented for deposition in both cases. The effect of feedstock size and processing on the tribological performance of the two coatings was of specific interest. The coatings were characterized by Optical and Scanning Electron Microscopy, micro-hardness and scratch resistance testing, and their dry sliding wear performance evaluated. The suspension sprayed coatings yielded significantly higher scratch resistance, lower friction coefficient and reduced wear rate compared to conventional coatings. The improved tribological behaviour of the former is attributable to finer porosity, smaller splat sizes, and improved interlamellar bonding. (C) 2017 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

    Deposition of Novel Composite Coatings by Suspension-Powder Hybrid Plasma Spraying2016In: The 7th International Swedish Production Symposium, SPS16, Conference Proceedings: 25th – 27th of October 2016, Lund: Swedish Production Academy , 2016, 1-8 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Suspension Plasma Spray (SPS) is an emerging technique which overcomes the difficulties typically associated with feeding of fine (submicron or nano-sized) powders in conventional atmospheric plasma spraying (APS) to obtain superior coating properties for various engineering applications. The advent of plasma spray systems that allow axial injection of feedstock, which considerably improves thermal exchange between the plasma plume and the injected feedstock, has enabled substantial enhancement in deposition rates/efficiencies to make SPS techno-commercially exciting. The present study utilizes both the above advances in plasma spraying to demonstrate the ability to deposit novel coating architectures by sequential/simultaneous axial injection of both powder and a suspension feedstock. The results reveal that composite coatings uniquely combining the micron-size features arising from the spray-grade powder and the submicron or nano-sized features attributable to the suspension, can be conveniently realized using the above approach. Three different kinds of coating architectures were generated, namely layered, composite, and functionally graded. The sprayed coatings were extensively characterized for attributes such as surface morphology, microstructure, and composition particularly in the case of composite coatings.

    A Diffusion-based Oxide Layer Growth Model using Real Interface Roughness in Thermal Barrier Coatings for Lifetime Assessment2015In: Surface & Coatings Technology, ISSN 0257-8972, E-ISSN 1879-3347, Vol. 271, no June, 181-191 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The development of thermo-mechanical stresses during thermal cycling can lead to the formation of detrimental cracks in Atmospheric Plasma Sprayed (APS) Thermal Barrier Coatings systems (TBCs). These stresses are significantly increased by the formation of a Thermally Grown Oxide (TGO) layer that forms through the oxidation of mainly aluminium in the bondcoat layer of the TBC. As shown in previous work done by the authors, the topcoat-bondcoat interface roughness plays a major role in the development of the stress profile in the topcoat and significantly affects the lifetime of TBCs. This roughness profile varies as the TGO layer grows and changes the stress profile in the topcoat leading to crack propagation and thus failure.

    In this work, a two-dimensional TGO growth model is presented, based on oxygen and aluminium diffusion-reaction equations, using real interface profiles extracted from cross-section micrographs. The model was first validated by comparing the TGO profiles artificially created by the model to thermally cycled specimens with varying interface roughness. Thereafter, stress profiles in the TBC system, before and after the TGO layer growth, were estimated using a finite element modelling model described in previous work done by the authors. Three experimental specimens consisting of the same chemistry but with different topcoat-bondcoat interface roughness were studied by the models and the stress state was compared to the lifetimes measured experimentally. The combination of the two models described in this work was shown to be an effective approach to assess the stress behaviour and lifetime of TBCs in a comparative way.

    Bilayer Suspension Plasma-Sprayed Thermal Barrier Coatings with Enhanced Thermal Cyclic Lifetime: Experiments and Modeling2017In: Journal of thermal spray technology (Print), ISSN 1059-9630, E-ISSN 1544-1016, Vol. 26, no 6, 1038-1051 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Suspension plasma spraying (SPS) has been shown as a promising process to produce porous columnar strain tolerant coatings for thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) in gas turbine engines. However, the highly porous structure is vulnerable to crack propagation, especially near the topcoat-bondcoat interface where high stresses are generated due to thermal cycling. A topcoat layer with high toughness near the topcoat-bondcoat interface could be beneficial to enhance thermal cyclic lifetime of SPS TBCs. In this work, a bilayer coating system consisting of first a dense layer near the topcoat-bondcoat interface followed by a porous columnar layer was fabricated by SPS using Yttria-stabilised zirconia suspension. The objective of this work was to investigate if the bilayer topcoat architecture could enhance the thermal cyclic lifetime of SPS TBCs through experiments and to understand the effect of the column gaps/vertical cracks and the dense layer on the generated stresses in the TBC during thermal cyclic loading through finite element modeling. The experimental results show that the bilayer TBC had significantly higher lifetime than the single-layer TBC. The modeling results show that the dense layer and vertical cracks are beneficial as they reduce the thermally induced stresses which thus increase the lifetime.

    Design of Low Thermal Conductivity Thermal Barrier Coatings by Finite Element Modelling2011In: Surface Modification Technologies XXIV: SMT24, Dresden, September 7-9, 2010 / [ed] T. S. Sudarshan, Eckhard Beyer, and Lutz-Michael Berger, 2011, 353-365 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Fundamental understanding of relationships between coating microstructure and thermal conductivity is important to be able to understand the influence of coating defects, such as delaminations and pores, on heat insulation in thermal barrier coatings (TBC). Object Oriented Finite element analysis (OOF) has recently been shown as an effective tool for evaluating thermo-mechanical material behaviour as this method is capable of incorporating the inherent material microstructure as an input to the model. The objective of this work was to evaluate a procedure where this technique is combined with Tbctool, a plasma-sprayed TBC like morphology generator, thus enabling development of low thermal conductivity coatings by simulation. Input parameters for Tbctool were computed from SEM images of sprayed microstructures using the image analysis software, Aphelion. Microstructures for as-sprayed as well as heat treated samples were evaluated. The thermal conductivities of the artificially generated microstructures were determined using OOF. Verification of the modelling procedure was performed by comparing predicted values by OOF with corresponding measured values using the laser flash technique. The results, although tentative in nature, indicate that the proposed simulation approach can be a powerful tool in the development of new low conductivity coatings.

    Abstract [en]

    The thermal and mechanical properties of Thermal Barrier Coating systems (TBCs) are strongly influenced by coating defects, such as delaminations and pores, thus making it essential to have a fundamental understanding of microstructure-property relationships in TBCs, to produce a desired coating. Object-Oriented Finite element analysis (OOF) has been shown previously as an effective tool for evaluating thermal and mechanical material behaviour, as this method is capable of incorporating the inherent material microstructure as an input to the model. In this work, OOF was used to predict the thermal conductivity and effective Young’s modulus of TBC topcoats. A Design of Experiments (DoE) was conducted by varying selected spray parameters for spraying Yttria Partially Stabilized Zirconia (YPSZ) topcoat. Characterisation of the coatings included microstructure, porosity and crack content and thermal conductivity measurements. The relationships between microstructural features, thermal conductivity and Young’s modulus are discussed.

    Abstract [en]

    Failure in Atmospheric Plasma Sprayed (APS) Thermal Barrier Coatings (TBCs) is associated with the thermomechanical stresses developing due to the Thermally Grown Oxide (TGO) layer growth and thermal expansion mismatch during thermal cycling. The interface roughness has been shown to play a major role in the development of these induced stresses and lifetime of TBCs. Modeling has been shown as an effective tool to understand the effect of interface roughness on induced stresses. In previous work done by the research group, it was observed that APS bondcoats performed better than the bondcoats sprayed with High Velocity OxyFuel (HVOF) process which is contrary to the present literature data. The objective of this work was to understand this observed difference in life-time with the help of finite element modeling by using real surface topographies. Different TGO layer thicknesses were evaluated. The modeling results were also compared with existing theories established on simplified sinusoidal profiles published in earlier works. It was shown that modeling can be used as an effective tool to understand the stress behavior in TBCs with different roughness profiles.

    Abstract [en]

    High production cost is one of the major barriers to widespread commercialization of solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs). Thermal spraytechniques are a low cost alternative for the production of SOFCs. The objective of this work was to evaluate the electrochemicalperformance of cells produced by plasma spraying. The anode was deposited on a porous metallic support by atmospheric plasmaspraying (APS) whereas the electrolyte was deposited by plasma spray-thin film (PS-TF) technique, which can produce thin anddense coatings at high deposition rates. The cathode was deposited by screen-printing and in-operando sintering. The electrochemicaltests were performed at 650–800◦C. Current-voltage characteristics and impedance spectra were measured and analyzed. The impactof electrolyte composition and layer thickness on the gas tightness of the electrolyte and the area specific resistance of the cell isdiscussed. The results show that the applied thermal spraying techniques are a potential alternative for producing SOFCs.

    Development of plasma sprayed Ni/YSZ anodes for metal supported solidoxide fuel cells2017In: Surface & Coatings Technology, ISSN 0257-8972, E-ISSN 1879-3347, Vol. 318, 178-189 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) offer a promising technique for producing electricity by clean energy conversionthrough an electrochemical reaction of fuel and air. Plasma spraying could be a potential manufacturing routefor commercial SOFCs, as it provides a distinct advantage especially in case of metal supported cells (MSCs) byallowing rapid processing at relatively low processing temperatures preventing thus the degradation of themetallicsubstrate. The objective of this work was to develop nickel/yttria stabilised zirconia (Ni/YSZ) anodes withhigh porosity and homogeneous phase distribution by atmospheric plasma spraying forMSCs. Various feedstockmaterial approaches were explored in this study, both with single injection aswell as separate injection of differentfeedstock materials , and with and without the use of pore formers to create additional porosity. The advantagesand issues with each material route were investigated and discussed. It was shown that agglomerated Ni/YSZ/polyester feedstock material resulted in the best distribution of Ni and YSZ in the anodemicrostructurewithhomogeneous porosity. Subsequently, the Ni/YSZ/polyester material route with different amounts and size distributionsof polyester was chosen to develop anode symmetrical cells using a commercial zirconia sheet as supportfor electrochemical testing. The Ni/YSZ/polyester anode powder with 10 wt.% standard size polyesterexhibited the best electrochemical performance. The results show that plasma spraying of the agglomeratedNi/YSZ/polyester could be a promising route to achieve high performance and rapid production anodes withoutusing the carcinogenic nickel oxide.

    Skräddad mikrostruktur av gadolinium zirkonat baserade värmebarriärbeläggningar som utsätts för termisk cyklisk utmattning2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Yttria Stabilized Zirconia (YSZ) is the standard ceramic top coat material used for TBC application. Above 1200°C, issues such as CMAS (Calcium Magnesium Alumino Silicates) infiltration susceptibility, phase instability and high sintering rates limits its long durability. Therefore, new materials which can overcome these challenges without compromising the other requirements for TBCs are highly desirable. Gadolinium zirconate is one such material which has shown promising results for CMAS infiltration resistance. In this work, a relatively new TBC processing route, suspension plasma spray (SPS) has been employed to deposit gadolinium zirconate based TBCs. The primary aim of this study was to deposit two different coating systems (layered and composite) of gadolinium zirconate and YSZ composition using SPS technique and evaluate their thermal cyclic fatigue life performance. The layered system was a triple layered TBC with YSZ as the base layer, relatively porous GZ as the intermediate layer and dense GZ as the top layer. The blended TBC system comprised of a thin YSZ layer, an intermediate GZ+YSZ thick layer and dense GZ top layer. In the thermal cyclic fatigue test at 1100°C and 1200°C, it was observed that blended TBC had a lower thermal cyclic life than the layered TBC. It was shown that SPS is a promising technique to deposit columnar microstructure TBCs.

    Characterization of tool wear when machining alloy 718 with high-pressure cooling using conventional and surface-modified WC-Co tools2017In: Journal of Superhard Materials, ISSN 1063-4576, Vol. 39, no 3, 178-185 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Coolant supplied by high pressure into the cutting zone has shown the lower thermal loads on the tool when machining difficult-to-cut materials as the Alloy 718. In this study, we investigate how the combination of high-pressure cooling and tool-surface modifications can lead to further improvements regarding tool life. The general approach is to enhance the coolant-tool interaction by increasing the contact area. Therefore, we machined cooling features into flank and rake faces of commercially available cemented tungsten carbide inserts. In this way, the surface area was increased by similar to 12%. After the cutting tests, the tools were analyzed by scanning electron microscopy combined with energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy. Compared with conventional tools, the tool modifications reduced the flank wear by 45% for the investigated cutting parameters. Furthermore, we were able to significantly increase the cutting speed and feed rate without failure of the tool. The investigated surface modifications have great potential to enhance the productivity of metal cutting processes.

    Flank wear characteristics of WC-Co tools when turning Alloy 718 with high-pressure coolant supply2017In: Journal of Manufacturing Processes, ISSN 1526-6125, Vol. 30, no Supplement C, 116-123 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the present study, the tool wear mechanisms of uncoated cemented tungsten carbide (WC-Co) tools during machining Alloy 718 with high-pressure coolant supply are investigated. Worn flank faces are analyzed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX). With increasing spiral cutting length, larger areas on the tool surface are subjected to erosion of Co-binder by the coolant jet impact. Moreover, the amount and morphology of workpiece-precipitates adhered on worn flank surfaces are influenced significantly by the extent of flank wear land (due to increasing spiral cutting length). The reasons for the obtained results are addressed with respect to the underlying mechanisms. Possible implications for the tool wear behavior are discussed.

    Residual stress state in an induction hardened steel bar determined by synchrotron- and neutron diffraction compared to results from lab-XRD2016In: Materials Science and Engineering: A, ISSN 0921-5093, Vol. 667, 199-207 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Induction hardening is a relatively rapid heat treatment method to increase mechanical properties of steel components. However, results from FE-simulation of the induction hardening process show that a tensile stress peak will build up in the transition zone in order to balance the high compressive stresses close to the surface. This tensile stress peak is located in the transition zone between the hardened zone and the core material. The main objective with this investigation has been to non-destructively validate the residual stress state throughout an induction hardened component. Thereby, allowing to experimentally confirming the existence and magnitude of the tensile stress peak arising from rapid heat treatment. For this purpose a cylindrical steel bar of grade C45 was induction hardened and characterised regarding the microstructure, hardness, hardening depth and residual stresses. This investigation shows that a combined measurement with synchrotron/neutron diffraction is well suited to non-destructively measure the strains through the steel bar of a diameter of 20 mm and thereby making it possible to calculate the residual stress profile. The result verified the high compressive stresses at the surface which rapidly changes to tensile stresses in the transition zone resulting in a large tensile stress peak. Measured stresses by conventional lab-XRD showed however that at depths below 1.5 mm the stresses were lower compared to the synchrotron and neutron data. This is believed to be an effect of stress relaxation from the layer removal. The FE-simulation predicts the depth of the tensile stress peak well but exaggerates the magnitude compared to the measured results by synchrotron/neutron measurements. This is an important knowledge when designing the component and the heat treatment process since this tensile stress peak will have great impact on the mechanical properties of the final component.

    Grit Blasting for Removal of Recast Layer from EDM Process on Inconel 718 Shaft: An Evaluation of Surface Integrity2016In: Journal of materials engineering and performance (Print), ISSN 1059-9495, E-ISSN 1544-1024, Vol. 25, no 12, 5540-5550 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The heat generated during EDM melts the work material and thereby allows large amounts to be removed,but an unfavorable surface of a recast layer (RCL) will also be created. This layer has entirely different properties compared to the bulk. Hence, it is of great interest to efficiently remove this layer and to verify that it has been removed. The main objective of this work has been to study the efficiency of grit blasting forremoval of RCL on an EDM aero space shaft. Additionally, x-ray fluorescence (XRF) has been evaluated asa nondestructive measurement to determine RCL presence. The results show that the grit-blasting processing parameters have strong influence on the ability to remove RCL and at the same time introduce beneficial compressive stresses even after short exposure time. Longer exposure will remove the RCL fromthe surface but also increase the risk that a larger amount of the blasting medium will get stuck into the surface. This investigation shows that a short exposure time in combination with a short grit-blasting nozzle distance is the most preferable process setting. It was further found that handheld XRF equipment can be used as a nondestructive measurement in order to evaluate the amount of RCL present on an EDM surface.This was realized by analyzing the residual elements from the EDM wire.

    A novel arc heat treatment technique for producing graded microstructures through controlled temperature gradients2017In: Materials & design, ISSN 0264-1275, E-ISSN 1873-4197, Vol. 121, no May, 11-23 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper introduces a novel arc heat treatment technique to produce samples with graded microstructures through the application of controlled temperature gradients. Steady state temperature distributions within the sample can be achieved and maintained, for times ranging from a few seconds to several hours. The technique reduces the number of samples needed to characterize the response of a material to thermal treatments, and can consequently be used as a physical simulator for materials processing. The technique is suitable for conventional heat treatment analogues, welding simulations, multi-step heat treatments, and heat treatments with controlled heating and cooling rates. To demonstrate this technique, a super duplex stainless steel was treated with a stationary TIG arc, to confirm the relationship between generated steady-state temperature fields, microstructure development, hardness, and sensitization to corrosion. Metallographic imaging and hardness mapping provided information about graded microstructures, confirming the formation of secondary phases and microstructure sensitization in the temperature range 850–950 °C. Modelling of temperature distributions and thermodynamic calculations of phase stabilities were used to simulate microstructure development and associated welding cycles.

    Seed layer-assisted low temperature solution growth of 3D ZnO nanowall architecture for hybrid solar cells2017In: Materials & design, ISSN 0264-1275, E-ISSN 1873-4197, Vol. 116, 219-226 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aligned metal oxide nanostructures carry electrons efficiently, and are therefore ideal building blocks for next-generation optoelectronic devices. Herein, we report the seed-layer-assisted low-temperature solution growth of aligned 3D ZnO nanowall architecture on arbitrary substrates. By introducing a controlled amount of Al into a seed-layer, the morphology of ZnO nanostructure is gradually changed from nanowire to 3D nanowalls. Time-dependent growth experiments suggest that hydroxyl-ions present in growth solution react with Al to form Al(OH)4 which in turn binds to the positively charged Zn2 +surface and partially blocking ZnO growth along the (0001) direction and promoting lateral growth. Such aligned 3D ZnO nanowall architecture, with the unique combination of high surface-area and cage-like pores, grown on seed-layer coated transparent conductive substrate is found to be beneficial for electron transporting material (ETM) in perovskite solar cells and a maximum photocurrent density (JSC) of 7.5 mA.cm− 2 and a power conversion efficiency (η) of 2.4% are demonstrated. Our facile approach readily allows further growth of ZnO nanowires on 3D ZnO nanowall surface; thereby improving the perovskite-ZnO interface and increasing the JSC and η to 9.7 and 3.3%, respectively. This 3D ZnO nanowall-nanowire architecture opens up a novel configuration for designing high-performance optoelectronic devices.

    EDS Analysis of Flank Wear and Surface Integrity in Machining of Alloy 718 with Forced Coolant Application2016In: Procedia CIRP, ISSN 2212-8271, E-ISSN 2212-8271, Vol. 45, 271-274 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There has been extensive research on forced coolant application, usually known as high pressure coolant, in machining heat resistant super alloys. This technology has shown to improve the tool life, chip segmentation, surface integrity and reduce the temperature in the cutting zone. A number of studies have been done on hydraulic parameters of the coolant. This study has been focused on residues on the flank face of the insert and residual stress on the workpiece surface generated by regular and modified cutting inserts. To identify any residual elements, analysis were done by energy dispersive X-ray spectrometer, EDS, on regular as well as modified inserts in combination with forced coolant application on both rake and flank face. The investigations have shown that the temperature gradient in the insert has changed between the regular and modified cutting inserts and that the tool wear and surface roughness is significantly affected by the modified cutting tool.

    Porosity distribution affecting mechanical and biological behaviour of hydroxyapatite bioceramic composites2017In: Ceramics International, ISSN 0272-8842, E-ISSN 1873-3956, Vol. 43, no 13, 10442-10449 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The present work aims to the study of developing porosity in hydroxyapatite (HAp) scaffold by using graphite porogen (with 0-30 vol%) followed by engineering the changes achieved by conventional- (CS) and microwave sintering (MS) techniques. The generated porosity was controlled between similar to 6-27% as the porogen concentration increases in HAp scaffold. Voronoi tessellation was utilized in order to evaluate the distribution of pores. The enhanced mechanical properties including fracture toughness (0.83 MPa m(1/2)), fracture strength (7.5 MPa), and hardness (183.7 VHN) were observed for microwave sintered HAp scaffold with 8% porosity. The fitting between porosity and fracture strength elicited that microwave sintered HAp with 8% porosity provides maximum crack-propagation resistance while restricting grain size (similar to 0.23 mu m) and eliciting high extent of sintering (similar to 1.34) because of their rapid heating rates. The cell viability (MTT assay) and cell culture confirm the cytocompatibility of porous HAp for application as bone implant that need accelerated replacement of bone tissues.

    High performance broad band antireflective coatings using a facile synthesis of ink-bottle mesoporous MgF2 nanoparticles for solar applications2017In: Solar Energy Materials and Solar Cells, ISSN 0927-0248, E-ISSN 1879-3398, Vol. 159, 204-211 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Ultra-low refractive index thin films suitable for practical antireflective (AR) applications must be highly transparent, economical, and durable against temperature and weather conditions. In this work, we present a high performance broad band antireflective coating using a facile synthesis of Ink-Bottle mesoporous MgF2 nanoparticles. The nanoparticles having high crystalline and dispersible properties were prepared by a deformation-reformation route from coarse commercial MgF2 hydrate powder by Lyothermal synthesis. These nanoparticles, after dispersion in a suitable solvent were used to develop a single layer AR coating by dip-coating technique. We precisely developed coatings tunable to achieve minimum reflection losses between 400 and 1500 nm. The AR coating exhibited nearly 100% transmittance within visible range (615–660 nm) and an average transmittance of 99% and 97% in the visible (400–800 nm) and active solar range (300–1500 nm) respectively. Further, use of the AR coating on PV glass led to a net improvement of 6% in efficiency for c-Si solar cells. This work opens a promising approach to improve the device performance of solar cells as well as solar collectors by developing broad band antireflective surfaces using mesoporous nanoparticles.

    EBSD Analysis and Assessment of Porosity in Thermal Barrier Coatings Produced by Axial Suspension Plasma Spraying (ASPS)2017In: Materials Science Forum, THERMEC 2016: Chapter 2: Contributed Papers / [ed] C. Sommitsch, M. Ionescu, B. Mishra, E. Kozeschnik och T. Chandra, Trans Tech Publications, 2017, Vol. 879, 972-977 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Axial suspension plasma spraying (ASPS) is a relatively new, innovative spraying technique which has produced thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) with attractive properties such as high durability and low thermal conductivity. Using a suspension, it is possible to spray with finer powder particles resulting in coatings that have a columnar microstructure and contain a wide range of pore sizes, both nm-and μm-sized pores. To optimize the thermal properties and to maintain them during service of the components, it will be important to design TBCs with optimal porosity. Hence, an important part in the assessment of ASPS coatings is therefore the characterization of the microstructure and how it is build up, and the determination of porosity. Both aspects are addressed by performing measurement on splats and ASPS-coating using electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) technique and by measuring porosity by Mercury Intrusion Porosimetry (MIP).
