    Energy and Cost Estimation of a Feature-based Machining Operation on HRSA2017Ingår i: Procedia CIRP, ISSN 2212-8271, E-ISSN 2212-8271, Vol. 61, nr Supplement C, s. 511-516Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    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.

    Engineered architectures of gadolinium zirconate based thermal barrier coatings subjected to hot corrosion test2017Ingår i: Surface & Coatings Technology, ISSN 0257-8972, E-ISSN 1879-3347, Vol. 328, s. 361-370Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract Gadolinium zirconate (GZ) is considered as a promising top coat candidate for high temperature TBC applications. Suspension plasma spray has shown the capability to generate a wide range of microstructures including the desirable columnar microstructure. In this study, two different TBC architectures were deposited using the axial suspension plasma spray. The first variation was a triple layered TBC comprising of thin YSZ base layer beneath a relatively porous GZ intermediate layer and a dense GZ top layer. The second variation was a composite TBC architecture of GZ and YSZ comprising of thin YSZ base layer and GZ + YSZ top layer. Cross sectional SEM analysis of the layered and composite TBCs revealed a columnar microstructure. The porosity content of the deposited TBCs was measured using two methods (Image Analysis and Water Intrusion). The as-sprayed TBCs were exposed at 900 °C for 8 h to a corrosive salt environment consisting of a mixture of vanadium pentoxide and sodium sulfate. XRD analysis on the as-corroded TBCs top surface showed the presence of gadolinium vanadate in both the layered and the composite TBCs. SEM/EDS analysis of the top surface and the cross-section of the layered and composite TBCs after hot corrosion test revealed the infiltration of the molten salts through the columnar gaps. The composite TBC showed a lower hot corrosion induced damage compared to the layered TBC where a considerable spallation was observed.

    Engineered thermal barrier coatings deposited by suspension plasma spray2017Ingår i: Materials letters (General ed.), ISSN 0167-577X, E-ISSN 1873-4979, Vol. 209, s. 517-521Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Yttria stabilized zirconia (YSZ) is susceptible to CMAS (Calcium Magnesium Alumino Silicates) attack at high temperatures (>1200 °C) which limits its durability. New ceramic materials which can overcome these high temperature challenges are highly desirable. This work investigates the feasibility of depositing two variations of three ceramic layered thermal barrier coatings. The first variation comprised of yttria as the top ceramic layer with gadolinium zirconate (GZ) as the intermediate layer and YSZ as the base layer. The second variation comprised of Yttrium Aluminum Garnet (YAG) as the top layer with gadolinium zirconate as the intermediate layer and YSZ as the base layer. Microstructural analysis of the as sprayed three layered TBCs were performed by SEM/EDS. Columnar microstructures with a relatively dense top layer were obtained in both the variations. The porosity content of the TBCs was measured by water intrusion and image analysis methods. Phase composition of each layer of the as sprayed TBCs was analyzed using XRD. YAG showed an amorphous phase whereas GZ showed a cubic defect fluorite phase and tetragonal phase was observed in YSZ. In the case of yttria, monoclinic and cubic phases were observed. © 2017 Elsevier B.V.

    Erosion Performance of Gadolinium Zirconate-Based Thermal Barrier Coatings Processed by Suspension Plasma Spray2017Ingår i: Journal of thermal spray technology (Print), ISSN 1059-9630, E-ISSN 1544-1016, Vol. 26, nr 1-2, s. 108-115Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    7-8 wt.% Yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) is the standard thermal barrier coating (TBC) material used by the gas turbines industry due to its excellent thermal and thermo-mechanical properties up to 1200 °C. The need for improvement in gas turbine efficiency has led to an increase in the turbine inlet gas temperature. However, above 1200 °C, YSZ has issues such as poor sintering resistance, poor phase stability and susceptibility to calcium magnesium alumino silicates (CMAS) degradation. Gadolinium zirconate (GZ) is considered as one of the promising top coat candidates for TBC applications at high temperatures (>1200 °C) due to its low thermal conductivity, good sintering resistance and CMAS attack resistance. Single-layer 8YSZ, double-layer GZ/YSZ and triple-layer GZdense/GZ/YSZ TBCs were deposited by suspension plasma spray (SPS) process. Microstructural analysis was carried out by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). A columnar microstructure was observed in the single-, double- and triple-layer TBCs. Phase analysis of the as-sprayed TBCs was carried out using XRD (x-ray diffraction) where a tetragonal prime phase of zirconia in the single-layer YSZ TBC and a cubic defect fluorite phase of GZ in the double and triple-layer TBCs was observed. Porosity measurements of the as-sprayed TBCs were made by water intrusion method and image analysis method. The as-sprayed GZ-based multi-layered TBCs were subjected to erosion test at room temperature, and their erosion resistance was compared with single-layer 8YSZ. It was shown that the erosion resistance of 8YSZ single-layer TBC was higher than GZ-based multi-layered TBCs. Among the multi-layered TBCs, triple-layer TBC was slightly better than double layer in terms of erosion resistance. The eroded TBCs were cold-mounted and analyzed by SEM.

    Evaluation of a temperature measurement method developed for laser metal deposition2017Ingår i: Science and technology of welding and joining, ISSN 1362-1718, E-ISSN 1743-2936, Vol. 22, nr 1, s. 1-6Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Measuring temperatures in the material during laser metal deposition (LMD) has an inherent challenge caused by the laser. When thermocouples are radiated by the high intensity laser light overheating occurs which causes the thermocouple to fail. Another identified difficulty is that when the laser passes a thermocouple, emitted light heats the thermocouple to a higher temperature than the material actually experience. In order to cope with these challenges, a method of measuring temperatures during LMD of materials using protective sheets has been developed and evaluated as presented in this paper. The method has substantially decreased the risk of destroying the thermocouple wires during laser deposition. Measurements using 10 mm2 and 100 mm2 protective sheets have been compared. These measurements show small variations in the cooling time (∼0.1 s from 850°C to 500°C) between the small and large protective sheets which indicate a negligible effect on the temperature measurement. © 2016 Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining.

    Fabrication and assembling of a microfluidic optical stretcher polymeric chip combining femtosecond laser and micro injection molding technologies2017Ingår i: Proceedings of SPIE, the International Society for Optical Engineering, ISSN 0277-786X, E-ISSN 1996-756X, artikel-id 100920FArtikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Microfluidic optical stretchers are valuable optofluidic devices for studying single cell mechanical properties. These usually consist of a single microfluidic channel where cells, with dimensions ranging from 5 to 20 Όm are trapped and manipulated through optical forces induced by two counter-propagating laser beams. Recently, monolithic optical stretchers have been directly fabricated in fused silica by femtosecond laser micromachining (FLM). Such a technology allows writing in a single step in the substrate volume both the microfluidic channel and the optical waveguides with a high degree of precision and flexibility. However, this method is very slow and cannot be applied to cheaper materials like polymers. Therefore, novel technological platforms are needed to boost the production of such devices on a mass scale. In this work, we propose integration of FLM with micro-injection moulding (ΌIM) as a novel route towards the cost-effective and flexible manufacturing of polymeric Lab-on-a-Chip (LOC) devices. In particular, we have fabricated and assembled a polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microfluidic optical stretcher by exploiting firstly FLM to manufacture a metallic mould prototype with reconfigurable inserts. Afterwards, such mould was employed for the production, through ΌIM, of the two PMMA thin plates composing the device. The microchannel with reservoirs and lodgings for the optical fibers delivering the laser radiation for cell trapping were reproduced on one plate, while the other included access holes to the channel. The device was assembled by direct fs-laser welding, ensuring sealing of the channel and avoiding thermal deformation and/or contamination. © 2017 SPIE.

    Finite Element Modeling and Validation of Chip Segmentation in Machining of AISI 1045 Steel2017Ingår i: Procedia CIRP, ISSN 2212-8271, E-ISSN 2212-8271, Vol. 58, s. 499-504Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The finite element (FE) method based modeling of chip formation in machining provides the ability to predict output parameters like cutting forces and chip geometry. One of the important characteristics of chip morphology is chip segmentation. Majority of the literature within chip segmentation show cutting speed (vc) and feed rate (f) as the most influencing input parameters. The role of tool rake angle (α) on chip segmentation is limited and hence, the present study is aimed at understanding it. In addition, stress triaxiality’s importance in damage model employed in FE method in capturing the influence of α on chip morphology transformation is also studied. Furthermore, microstructure characterization of chips was carried out using a scanning electron microscope (SEM) to understand the chip formation process for certain cutting conditions. The results show that the tool α influences chip segmentation phenomena and that the incorporation of a stress triaxiality factor in damage models is required to be able to predict the influence of the α. The variation of chip segmentation frequency with f is predicted qualitatively but the accuracy of prediction needs improvement. © 2017 The Authors.

    Finite element modelling and characterisation of chip curl in nose turning process2017Ingår i: International Journal of Machining and Machinability of Materials, E-ISSN 1748-572X, Vol. 19, nr 3, s. 277-295Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    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.

    Flank wear characteristics of WC-Co tools when turning Alloy 718 with high-pressure coolant supply2017Ingår i: Journal of Manufacturing Processes, ISSN 1526-6125, Vol. 30, nr Supplement C, s. 116-123Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    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.

    Flipping the Data Center Network: Increasing East-West Capacity Using Existing Hardware2017Ingår i: 2017 IEEE 42nd Conference on Local Computer Networks (LCN), 9-12 Oct. 2017, IEEE, 2017, s. 211-214, artikel-id 8109355Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In today's datacenters, there is an increasing demand for more network traffic capacity. The majority of the increase in traffic is internal to the datacenter, i.e., it flows between different servers within the datacenter. This category of traffic is often referred to as east-west traffic and traditional hierarchical architectures are not well equipped to handle this type of traffic. Instead, they are better suited for the north-southbound traffic between hosts and the Internet. One suggested solution for this capacity problem is to adopt a folded CLOS topology, also known as spine-leaf, which often relies on software defined network (SDN) controllers to manage traffic. This paper shows that it is possible to implement a spine-leaf network using commodity-ofthe-shelf switches and thus improve the east-west traffic capacity. This can be obtained using low complexity configuration and edgerouting for load balancing, eliminating the need for a centralized SDN controller.

    Fracture behaviour of nc-TiAlN/a-Si3N4 nanocomposite coating during nanoimpact test2017Ingår i: Surface Engineering, ISSN 0267-0844, E-ISSN 1743-2944, Vol. 33, nr 4, s. 282-291Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Cyclic nanoimpact tests were carried on nc-TiAlN/a-Si3N4 nanocomposite, TiN and multilayered TiN/nanocomposite (NC) coatings to evaluate their resistance to fracture under cyclic impact loads. Fracture behaviour of the coatings was ascertained from fracture probability obtained from time-depth curves and focus ion beam milling images of resulting indentation impressions. TiN coating mainly showed intercolumnar cracks while the other coatings showed other modes of cracking, that is, lateral, inclined, bending, edge cracks, during testing. The performance ranking of the coatings, TiN > TiN/NC > nc-TiAlN/a-Si3N4, is linked to their β0 value, representing relative indentation depth of the coating-substrate composite hardness system at which the fractional hardness improvement equal to 50% of the maximum is retained and also their corresponding microstructure.

    Functional performance of Gd2Zr2O7/YSZ multi-layered thermal barrier coatings deposited by suspension plasma spray2017Ingår i: Surface & Coatings Technology, ISSN 0257-8972, E-ISSN 1879-3347, Vol. 318, s. 208-216Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    7-8 wt% yttria stabilized zirconia (YSZ) is the standard ceramic top coat material used in gasturbines to insulate the underlying metallic substrate. However, at higher temperatures(>1200 °C), phase stability and sintering becomes an issue for YSZ. At these temperatures,YSZ is also susceptible to CMAS (calcium magnesium alumino silicates) infiltration. New ceramic materials such as pyrochlores have thus been proposed due to their excellent properties such as lower thermal conductivity and better CMAS attack resistance compared to YSZ. However, pyrochlores have inferior thermo mechanical properties compared to YSZ.Therefore, double-layered TBCs with YSZ as the intermediate layer and pyrochlore as the top ceramic layer have been proposed. In this study, double layer TBC comprising gadoliniumzirconate (GZ)/YSZ and triple layer TBC (GZdense/GZ/YSZ) comprising relatively denser GZtop layer on GZ/YSZ were deposited by suspension plasma spray. Also, single layer 8YSZ TBC was suspension plasma sprayed to compare its functional performance with the multilayered TBCs. Cross sections and top surface morphology of as sprayed TBCs were analyzed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). XRD analysis was done to identify phases formed in the top surface of as sprayed TBCs. Porosity measurements were made using water intrusionand image analysis methods. Thermal diffusivity of the as sprayed TBCs was measured using laser flash analysis and thermal conductivity of the TBCs was calculated. The multi-layered GZ/YSZ TBCs were shown to have lower thermal conductivity than the single layer YSZ. Theas sprayed TBCs were also subjected to thermal cyclic testing at 1300 ºC. The double and triple layer TBCs had a longer thermal cyclic life compared to YSZ. The failed samples were cold mounted and analyzed by SEM.

    High performance broad band antireflective coatings using a facile synthesis of ink-bottle mesoporous MgF2 nanoparticles for solar applications2017Ingår i: Solar Energy Materials and Solar Cells, ISSN 0927-0248, E-ISSN 1879-3398, Vol. 159, s. 204-211Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    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.

    Hot corrosion behavior of multi-layer suspension plasma sprayed Gd2Zr2O7/YSZ thermal barrier coatings2017Ingår i: InterCeram: International Ceramic Review, ISSN 0020-5214, Vol. 66, nr 5, s. 180-184Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates the corrosion resistance of double layer Gd2Zr2O7/YSZ, triple layer dense Gd2Zr2O7 / Gd2Zr2O7/YSZ and a reference single layer YSZ coating with a similar overall top coat thickness of 300-320 Όm. All the coatings were manufactured by suspension plasma spraying (SPS), resulting in a columnar structure. Corrosion tests were conducted at 900°C for 8 hours using vanadium pentoxide and sodium sulphate as corrosive salts at a concentration of 4 mg/cm2. SEM investigations after the corrosion tests show that Gd2Zr2O7 coatings exhibited lower corrosion resistance than the reference material, YSZ. Reaction between the corrosive salts and Gd2Zr2O7 results in the formation of gadolinium vanadate ( GdVO4) along the top surface and between the columns. While the stresses due to phase transformation of zirconia can be relieved to some extent by realigning of the columns in the top coat, it is believed that GdVO4 formation between the columns, along with low fracture toughness of Gd2Zr2O7 had resulted in lower corrosion resistance. Furthermore, the presence of a relatively dense layer of Gd2Zr2O7 on the top, as a preventive layer for salt infiltration, did not improve the corrosion resistance.

    Hot Corrosion Mechanism in Multi-Layer Suspension Plasma Sprayed Gd2Zr2O7 /YSZ Thermal Barrier Coatings in the Presence of V2O5 + Na2SO42017Ingår i: Journal of thermal spray technology (Print), ISSN 1059-9630, E-ISSN 1544-1016, Vol. 26, nr 1-2, s. 140-149Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates the corrosion resistance of two-layer Gd2Zr2O7/YSZ, three-layer dense Gd2Zr2O7/ Gd2Zr2O7/YSZ, and a reference single-layer YSZ coating with a similar overall top coat thickness of 300-320 µm. All the coatings were manufactured by suspension plasma spraying resulting in a columnar structure except for the dense layer. Corrosion tests were conducted at 900 °C for 8 h using V2O5 and Na2SO4 as corrosive salts at a concentration of approximately 4 mg/cm2. SEM investigations after the corrosion tests show that Gd2Zr2O7-based coatings exhibited lower reactivity with the corrosive salts and the formation of gadolinium vanadate (GdVO4), accompanied by the phase transformation of zirconia was observed. It is believed that the GdVO4 formation between the columns reduced the strain tolerance of the coating and also due to the fact that Gd2Zr2O7 has a lower fracture toughness value made it more susceptible to corrosion-induced damage. Furthermore, the presence of a relatively dense layer of Gd2Zr2O7 on the top did not improve in reducing the corrosion-induced damage. For the reference YSZ coating, the observed corrosion-induced damage was lower probably due to combination of more limited salt penetration, the SPS microstructure and superior fracture toughness of YSZ.

    In this paper, we describe early work on a classification model on how to interact with industrial and other types of robots. We suggest a classification for how to describe different scenarios within Human-Robot Interaction. The idea with this model is to help when identifying the gap between where a company is and where they would like to be when it comes to collaborative automation. © 2017 Author.

    Hybrid powder-suspension Al2O3-ZrO2 coatings by axial plasma spraying: Processing, characteristics & tribological behaviour2017Ingår i: Proceedings of the International Thermal Spray Conference & Exposition, New York: Curran Associates, Inc , 2017, Vol. 1, s. 374-379Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The ability of suspension plasma spraying (SPS) to overcome difficulties associated with feeding of fine (submicron or nano-sized) powders and achieve more refined microstructures than possible in atmospheric plasma spraying (APS) is well established. In recent times, the use of axial injection plasma spray systems has yielded substantial enhancement in deposition rates/efficiencies due to improved thermal exchange between the plasma plume and injected feedstock. The present paper describes utilization of both the above advances in plasma spraying to create various function-dependent coating architectures through simultaneous and/or sequential spraying of hybrid powder-suspension feedstock. A specific variant of such hybrid axial plasma spraying that enables deposition of composite coatings by simultaneous injection of a powder and a suspension is discussed in particular detail. Results obtained using an Al2O3-ZrO2 material system as a case study reveal that composite coatings combining the micron-size features arising from the spray-grade Al2O3 powder and submicron or nano-sized features attributable to the ZrO2 suspension can be conveniently realized. The surface morphology, microstructure, and composition of these coatings, as well as their tribological behaviour determined using scratch and ball-on-disc tests, are presented herein. The utility of this method to develop a wide array of composite coatings is also discussed.

    Improved productivity by reduced variation in gas metal arc welding (GMAW)2017Ingår i: The International Journal of Advanced Manufacturing Technology, ISSN 0268-3768, E-ISSN 1433-3015, Vol. 92, nr 1-4, s. 1027-1038Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the research conducted is to describe the consequences of variation in the welding industry and the effect it has on manufacturing productivity. The potential has shown to be hidden in unnecessarily stringent requirements and over-processing. This has been studied in steps: customer requirements, design and analysis, preparation, welding, and assessment. The effect of variation in each step has been analyzed including estimations of its productivity improvement potential. Theoretically, in a perfect situation, with customized requirements and eliminated variation, more than half of all welding could be removed. Such a reduction is certainly neither practical nor possible. However, a sensible, controlled reduction could still have a very high impact. The financial implications are therefore substantial. The improved productivity of the manufacturing resources could be used for business development and increased production. To be able to realize the potential, interdisciplinary efforts are necessary. Management across different functions need to agree on the intended product life and make decisions thereafter.

    Improving fatigue properties of welded high strength steels2017Doktorsavhandling, sammanläggning (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent years a strong interest has been expressed to produce lighter structures.One possible solution to reduce the weight is to utilize high strength steels and use welding as the joining method. Many components experience fatigue loadingduring all or part of their life time and welded connections are often the prime location of fatigue failure. This becomes more critical in welded high strength steels as fatigue strength of welds does not increase by increasing the steel strength. A possible solution to overcome this issue is to use fatigue improvement methods.The main objectives of this project are, therefore, to increase understanding of the factors that control fatigue life and to investigate how the fatigue strength improvement methods; high frequency mechanical impact (HFMI) treatment and use of Low Transformation Temperature (LTT) consumables will affect fatigue properties of welds in high strength steels. In this regard, Gas Metal Arc Welding(GMAW) was used to produce butt and fillet welds using LTT or conventional fillers in steels with yield strengths ranging from 650-1021 MPa and T-joint weldsin a steel with 1300 MPa yield strength. The effect of HFMI on fatigue strength of the welds in 1300 MPa yield strength steels was also investigated. Butt and fillet welds in 650-1021 MPa steels were fatigue tested under constant amplitude tensile loading with a stress ratio of 0.1 while T-joints were fatigue tested under constant amplitude fully reversed bending load with a stress ratio of -1. The nominal stress approach was used for fatigue strength evaluation of butt and fillet welds whereas the effective notch stress approach was used in case of T-joints. Relative effectsof the main parameters such as residual stress and weld toe geometry influencing fatigue strength of welds were evaluated. Residual stresses were measured using X-ray diffraction for as-welded and HFMI treated welds. Neutron diffraction was additionally used to investigate the near surface residual stress distribution in 1300 MPa LTT welds.Results showed that use of LTT consumables increased fatigue strength of welds in steels with yield strengths ranging from 650-1021 MPa. For butt welds, the vii characteristic fatigue strength (FAT) of LTT welds at 2 million cycles was up to46% higher when compared to corresponding welds made with conventional fillermaterials. In fillet welds, a maximum improvement of 132% was achieved when using LTT wires. The increase in fatigue strength was attributed to the lower tensile residual stresses or even compressive stresses produced close to the weldtoe in LTT welds. Weld metals with martensite transformation start temperatures around 200 °C produced the highest fatigue strength. In 1300 MPa yield strength steel, similar FAT of 287 MPa was observed for LTT welds and 306 MPa for conventional welds, both much higher than the IIW FATvalue of 225 MPa. The relative transformation temperatures of the base and weldmetals, specimen geometry and loading type are possible reasons why the fatigue strength was not improved by use of LTT wires. Neutron diffraction showed that the LTT consumable was capable of inducing near surface compressive residual stresses in all directions at the weld toe. It was additionally found that there arevery steep stress gradients both transverse to the weld toe line and in the depth direction, at the weld toe. Due to difficulties to accurately measure residual stresses locally at the weld toe most often in the literature and recommendations residual stresses a few millimetre away from the weld toe are related to fatigue properties. However, this research shows that caution must be used when relating these to fatigue strength, in particular for LTT welds, as stress in the base materiala few millimetre from the weld toe can be very different from the stress locally at the weld toe.HFMI increased the mean fatigue strength of conventional welds in 1300 MPa steels about 26% and of LTT welds by 13%. It increased the weld toe radius slightly but produced a more uniform geometry along the treated weld toes. Large compressive residual stresses, especially in the longitudinal direction, were introduced adjacent to the weld toe for both LTT and conventional treated welds. It was concluded that the increase in fatigue strength by HFMI treatment is due to the combined effect of weld toe geometry modification, increase in surface hardness and introduction of compressive residual stresses in the treated region.It was concluded that the residual stress has a relatively larger influence than the weld toe geometry on fatigue strength of welds. This is based on the observation that a moderate decrease in residual stress of about 15% at the 300 MPa stress level had the same effect on fatigue strength as increasing the weld toe radius by approximately 85% from 1.4 mm to 2.6 mm, in fillet welds. Also, a higher fatigue strength was observed for HFMI treated conventional welds compared to as welded samples having similar weld toe radii but with different residual stresses.

    Improving fatigue strength of welded 1300 MPa yield strength steel using HFMI treatment or LTT fillers2017Ingår i: Engineering Failure Analysis, ISSN 1350-6307, E-ISSN 1873-1961, Vol. 79, nr September, s. 64-74Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Fatigue improvement techniques are widely used to increase fatigue strength of welded high strength steels. In this paper high frequency mechanical impact (HFMI) and a Low Transformation Temperature (LTT) filler material were employed to investigate the effect on fatigue strength of welded 1300 MPa yield strength steel. Fatigue testing was done under fully reversed, constant amplitude bending load on T-joint samples. Fatigue strength of LTT welds was the same as for welds produced using a conventional filler material. However, HFMI treatment increased the mean fatigue strength of conventional welds about 26% and of LTT welds about 13%. Similar distributions of residual stresses and almost the same weld toe radii were observed for welds produced using LTT and conventional consumables. HFMI increased the weld toe radius slightly and produced a more uniform geometry along the treated weld toes. Relatively large compressive residual stresses, adjacent to the weld toe were produced and the surface hardness was increased in the treated region for conventional welds after HFMI. For this specific combination of weld geometry, steel strength and loading conditions HFMI treatment gave higher fatigue strength than LTT consumables.

    Improving the lifetime of suspension plasma sprayed thermal barrier coatings2017Ingår i: Surface & Coatings Technology, ISSN 0257-8972, E-ISSN 1879-3347, Vol. 332, s. 550-559Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Development of thermal barrier coating systems (TBCs) for gas turbine applications allowing higher combustion temperatures is of high interest since it results in higher fuel efficiency and lower emissions. TBCs produced by suspension plasma spraying (SPS) have been shown to exhibit significantly lower thermal conductivity as compared to conventional systems due to their very fine porosity microstructure. However they have not been commercialised yet due to low reliability and life expectancy of the coatings. In addition to the initial topcoat microstructure and its sintering resistance, lifetime of a TBC system is highly dependent on bondcoat chemistry as it influences the growth rate of thermally grown oxide (TGO) layer. To enhance the lifetime of SPS TBCs, fundamental understanding of relationships between topcoat microstructure and its evolution with time, bondcoat chemistry, TGO growth rate, and lifetime is essential. The objective of this work was to study the effect of topcoat microstructure evolution and TGO growth rate on lifetime in SPS TBC systems. Experimental MCrAlY bondcoat powders with different aluminium activities were investigated and compared to a commercial bondcoat powder. High velocity air fuel spraying was used for bondcoat deposition while axial-SPS was used for yttria stabilized zirconia topcoat deposition. Lifetime was examined by thermal cyclic fatigue testing. Isothermal heat treatment was performed to study TGO evolution with time. The changes in microstructure of SPS coatings due to sintering under long term exposure at high temperatures were investigated. Different failure modes in SPS TBCs were also examined. The bondcoat with higher aluminium activity resulted in a significantly higher thermal cyclic lifetime of the corresponding TBC as it could have promoted protective alumina layer growth for a longer period of time. The results indicate that the significant changes in topcoat microstructure due to sintering as observed in this work could have a detrimental effect on TBC lifetime. © 2017 Elsevier B.V.

    Increasing Throughput of Multiprogram HPC Workloads: Evaluating a SMT Co-Scheduling Approach2017Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Simultaneous Multithreading (SMT) is a technique that allows formore efficient processor utilization by scheduling multiple threadson a single physical core. Previous research have shown an averagethroughput increase of around 20% with an SMT level of two, e.g.two threads per core. However, a bad combination of threads canactually result in decreased performance. To be conservative, manyHPC-systems have SMT disabled, thus, limiting the number ofscheduling slots in the system to one per core. However, for SMT tonot hurt performance, we need to determine which threads shouldshare a core. In this poster, we use 30 random SPEC CPU job mixedon a twelve-core Broadwell based node, to study the impact ofenabling SMT using two different co-scheduling strategies. Theresults show that SMT can increase performance especially whenusing no-same-program co-scheduling.

    Influence of bondcoat surface characteristics on lifetime in suspension plasma sprayed thermal barrier coatings2017Ingår i: Proceedings of the International Thermal Spray Conference & Exposition (ITSC 2017), New York: Curran Associates, Inc , 2017, Vol. 2, s. 883-887Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Development of TBCs allowing higher combustion temperatures in gas turbines is of high commercial interest since it results in higher fuel efficiency and lower emissions. It is well known that TBCs produced by suspension plasma spraying (SPS) have lower thermal conductivity as compared to conventional systems due to their very fine porous microstructure. Moreover, columnar structured SPS TBCs are significantly cheaper to produce as compared to the conventionally used electron beam - physical vapour deposition (EB-PVD). However, SPS TBCs have not yet been commercialised due to low reliability and life expectancy of the coatings. Lifetime of a TBC system is significantly dependent on topcoat-bondcoat interface topography. The objective of this work was to study the effect of topcoat-bondcoat interface in SPS TBCs by changing bondcoat spray parameters and bondcoat surface heat treatment High velocity air fuel (HVAF) spraying was used for bondcoat deposition while axial-SPS was used for topcoat deposition. Same topcoat spray parameters were used for all samples. Lifetime was examined by thermal cyclic fatigue and thermal shock testing. The influence of surface roughness on lifetime has been discussed. The results show that HVAF could be a suitable process for bondcoat deposition to achieve long lifetime SPS TBCs.

    Influence of Isothermal Heat Treatment on Porosity and Crystallite Size in Axial Suspension Plasma Sprayed Thermal Barrier Coatings for Gas Turbine Applications2017Ingår i: Coatings, ISSN 2079-6412, Vol. 7, nr 1, s. 1-14, artikel-id 4Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    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

    Influence of radial depth of cut on entry conditions and dynamics in face milling application2017Ingår i: Journal of Superhard Materials, ISSN 1063-4576, Vol. 39, nr 4, s. 259-270Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    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.

    Initial Formulation of Why Disallowing Same Program Co-schedules Improves Performance2017Ingår i: Co-Scheduling of HPC Applications / [ed] Carsten Trinitis, Josef Weidendorfer, Netherlands: IOS Press, 2017, 1, s. 95-113Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Co-scheduling processes on different cores in the same server might leadto excessive slowdowns if they use the same shared resource, like a memory bus. Ifpossible, processes with a high shared resource use should be allocated to differentserver nodes to avoid contention, thus avoiding slowdown. This article proposesthe more general principle that twins, i.e. several instances of the same program,should be allocated to different server nodes. The rational for this is that instancesof the same program use the same resources and they are more likely to be eitherlow or high resource users. High resource users should obviously not be combined,but a bit non-intuitively, it is also shown that low resource users should also notbe combined in order to not miss out on better scheduling opportunities. This isverified using both a probabilistic argument as well as experimentally using tenprograms from the NAS parallel benchmark suite running on two different systems.By using the simple rule of forbidding these terrible twins, the average slowdownis shown to decrease from 6.6% down to 5.9% for System A and from 9.5% to8.3% for System B. Furthermore, the worst case slowdown is lowered from 12.7%to 9.0% and 19.5% to 13% for systems A and B, respectively. Thus, indicating aconsiderable improvement despite the rule being program agnostic and having noinformation about any program’s resource usage or slowdown behavior.

    Investigation of laser metal deposited Alloy 718 onto an EN 1.4401 stainless steel substrate2017Ingår i: Optics and Laser Technology, ISSN 0030-3992, E-ISSN 1879-2545, Vol. 97, nr Supplement C, s. 144-153Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper focuses on how process parameters affect the deposition of Alloy 718 onto an EN 1.4401 stainless steel substrate in terms of secondary phase formation, dilution and hardness. A columnar solidification structure with elongated grains growing in the direction normal to the substrate was observed for all parameters. In the interdendritic regions, phases with a high content of Niobium were identified. Scanning Electron Microscopy imaging and Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy measurements revealed these phases to most likely be Laves phase and Nb-carbides. Temperature measurements indicated no significant aging in the deposits. Considerable enrichment of iron was found in the initially deposited layers due to dilution from the substrate. The increased content of iron seemed to aid in forming constituents rich in niobium which, in turn, influenced the hardness. The highest mean hardness was noted in the sample with the lowest area fraction of Nb-rich constituents.

    Isostatic GOCE Moho model for Iran2017Ingår i: Journal of Asian Earth Sciences, ISSN 1367-9120, E-ISSN 1878-5786, Vol. 138, s. 12-24Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    One of the major issues associated with a regional Moho recovery from the gravity or gravity-gradient data is the optimal choice of the mean compensation depth (i.e., the mean Moho depth) for a certain area of study, typically for orogens characterised by large Moho depth variations. In case of selecting a small value of the mean compensation depth, the pattern of deep Moho structure might not be reproduced realistically. Moreover, the definition of the mean compensation depth in existing isostatic models affects only low-degrees of the Moho spectrum. To overcome this problem, in this study we reformulate the Sjöberg and Jeffrey’s methods of solving the Vening-Meinesz isostatic problem so that the mean compensation depth contributes to the whole Moho spectrum. Both solutions are then defined for the vertical gravity gradient, allowing estimating the Moho depth from the GOCE satellite gravity-gradiometry data. Moreover, gravimetric solutions provide realistic results only when a priori information on the crust and upper mantle structure is known (usually from seismic surveys) with a relatively good accuracy. To investigate this aspect, we formulate our gravimetric solutions for a variable Moho density contrast to account for variable density of the uppermost mantle below the Moho interface, while taking into consideration also density variations within the sediments and consolidated crust down to the Moho interface. The developed theoretical models are applied to estimate the Moho depth from GOCE data at the regional study area of the Iranian tectonic block, including also parts of surrounding tectonic features. Our results indicate that the regional Moho depth differences between Sjöberg and Jeffrey’s solutions, reaching up to about 3 km, are caused by a smoothing effect of Sjöberg’s method. The validation of our results further shows a relatively good agreement with regional seismic studies over most of the continental crust, but large discrepancies are detected under the Oman Sea and the Makran subduction zone. We explain these discrepancies by a low quality of seismic data offshore.

    Isothermal oxidation behavior of HVAF-sprayed Ni and NiCr coatings in H2-H2O environment2017Ingår i: Surface & Coatings Technology, ISSN 0257-8972, E-ISSN 1879-3347, Vol. 317, s. 17-25Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The formation of a protective chromia scale on stainless steels is known to be suppressed by the presence of water vapor in reducing conditions. Thermal spray coatings present a promising approach to improve the durability of steels by transferring the first line of oxidation attack from the bulk steel to the coating. In the present work, isothermal oxidation behavior of Ni and NiCr coatings deposited by High-Velocity Air Fuel (HVAF) process on 304L stainless steel was investigated at 600 degrees C for 168 h. Ar-10%H-2-20%H2O was selected as the oxidation environment to study the oxidation behavior of the coatings in a low pO(2) environment containing H2 and H2O. BIB/ SEM, EDS, and XRD techniques were used to characterize the as-sprayed coatings and to investigate the oxidation mechanisms in the coated samples. Results showed that both Ni and NiCr coatings imparted oxidation protection to the 304L substrate. The chromia-forming 304L steel presented a duplex but non-protective oxide scale comprising of an outer Fe3O4 layer on an inner (Fe, Cr)(3)O-4-spinel oxide. In contrast, the NiCr coating presented superior oxidation behavior due to the formation of a continuous, thin, and slow-growing Cr2O3 scale. The Ni coating, too, protected the substrate owing to limited nucleation and growth of the deleterious NiO scale in the low-oxygen -activity environment. (C) 2017 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

    Isothermal oxidation behavior of HVAF-sprayed NiCoCrAlY coatings: Effect of surface treatment2017Ingår i: Proceedings of the International Thermal Spray Conference & Exposition (ITSC 2017), New York: Curran Associates, Inc , 2017, Vol. 1, s. 456-461Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    NiCoCrAlY coatings are widely used as bond coats for ceramic thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) andoxidation and corrosion protective overlay coatings in industrial gas turbines. High temperature oxidation behaviour of NiCoCrAlYs has a great influence on the coating performance and lifetime of TBCs. A promising route to decrease the oxidation rate of such coatings is post-coating surface modification which can facilitate formation of a uniform alumina scale with a considerably slower growth rate compared to the as-sprayed coatings. In this work, the effect of surface treatment by means of shot peening and laser surface melting (LSM) on the oxidation resistance of high velocity air-fuel (HVAF) sprayed NiCoCrAlY coatings was studied. Isothermal oxidation was carried out at 1000⁰C for 1000h. Results showed that the rough surface of as-sprayed HVAF sprayed coatings was significantly changed after shot peening and LSM treatment, with a compact and smooth appearance. After the exposure, the oxide scales formed on surface-treated NiCoCrAlY coatings showed different morphology and growth rate compared to those formed on as-sprayed coating surface. The oxidation behaviour of surface treated HVAF-sprayed NiCoCrAlY coatings were revealed and discussed.

    Isothermal oxidation of HVAF-sprayed Ni-based chromia, alumina and mixed-oxide scale forming coatings in ambient air2017Ingår i: Surface & Coatings Technology, ISSN 0257-8972, E-ISSN 1879-3347, Vol. 316, s. 10-21Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The power generation industry has been progressively shifting towards higher operating steam temperatures and pressures to increase efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions. However, higher operating temperatures lead to more aggressive oxidation of the boiler components. A promising route to improve the durability of degradation-prone components is through deployment of high-performance coatings. In the present work, four Ni-based coatings - Ni21Cr, Ni5Al, Ni21Cr9Mo, and Ni21Cr7Al1Y - thermally sprayed by the high-velocity air fuel (HVAF) technique on boiler steel (16Mo3) substrates were investigated. The isothermal oxidation behavior of the coatings was studied in ambient air environment at 600 °C for different time intervals i.e. 1, 5, 10, 24, 48, 96, and 168 h. The oxidation behavior of the as-sprayed and polished coatings was compared. The protective α-Al2O3 was not detected on the exposed alumina-forming NiAl coating. On the other hand, Cr2O3 along with a small amount of NiO were the main oxidation products on the surface of the NiCr and NiCrMo coatings, and were found to be relatively less protective. The mixed-oxide scale forming NiCrAlY coatings showed the best oxidation resistance due to the formation of a thin and slow-growing Al2O3 scale along with Ni(Al,Cr)2O4 and Cr2O3. The polished coatings were found to significantly reduce the oxidation rate in each case as the protective scale-forming elements were more uniformly supplied to the surface oxide scale by removing the surface asperities. © 2017 Elsevier B.V.

    KCI-induced corrosion behavior of HVAF-sprayed Ni-based coatings in ambient air2017Ingår i: Proceedings of the International Thermal Spray Conference & Exposition (ITSC 2017), Curran Associates, Inc. , 2017, Vol. 2, s. 946-950Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    It is well known that the presence of KCl deposited on superheater tubes in biomass- and waste-fired boilers leads to a severe corrosion and premature damage. In order to protect such critical components which are routinely exposed to aggressive environments, thermal spray coatings are frequently proposed as a potential solution. By virtue of the techno-commercial benefits that provides as a direct outcome of its ability to cost-effectively deposit coatings virtually free of porosity and in situ formed oxides, the high velocity air-fuel (HVAF) process offers a particularly attractive approach. In the present work, the influence of KCl on the oxidation behavior of four HVAF-sprayed Ni-based coatings (Ni21Cr, Ni5AI, Ni21Cr7AI1Y, and Ni21Cr9Mo) has been investigated. The coatings were deposited onto specimens of 16Mo3 steel, a widely used boiler tube material. High temperature corrosion tests were carried out in ambient air at 600°C, with 0.1 mg/cm2 KCl being sprayed onto the samples prior to the exposure. Uncoated substrates and an identical test environment without KCl were used as reference. SEM/EDS and XRD techniques were utilized to characterize the as-sprayed and exposed samples. The results showed that the small addition of KCl significantly accelerated damage to the coatings. It was further revealed that the alumina-forming NiAl coating was capable of forming a more protective oxide scale compared to other chromia and mixed-oxide scale forming coatings. In general, the oxidation resistance of the coatings based on the kinetic studies had the following ranking (from the best to the worst): NiAl >NiCr> NiCrAlY> NiCrMo. © Copyright 2017 by DVS Media GmbH.

    Laser Metal Deposition using Alloy 718 Powder: Influence of Process Parameters on Material Characteristics2017Doktorsavhandling, sammanläggning (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Additive manufacturing (AM) is a general name used for manufacturing methods which have the capabilities of producing components directly from 3D computeraided design (CAD) data by adding material layer-by-layer until a final componentis achieved. Included here are powder bed technologies, laminated object manufacturing and deposition technologies. The latter technology is used in this study. Laser Metal Powder Deposition (LMPD) is an AM method which builds components by fusing metallic powder together with a metallic substrate, using a laser as energy source. The powder is supplied to the melt-pool, which is created by the laser, through a powder nozzle which can be lateral or coaxial. Both the powder nozzle and laser are mounted on a guiding system, normally a computer numerical control (CNC) machine or a robot. LMPD has lately gained attentionas a manufacturing method which can add features to semi-finished components or as a repair method. LMPD introduce a low heat input compared to conventional arc welding methods and is therefore well suited in, for instance, repair of sensitive parts where too much heating compromises the integrity of the part. The main part of this study has been focused on correlating the main process parameters to effects found in the material which in this project is the superalloy Alloy 718. It has been found that the most influential process parameters are the laser power, scanning speed, powder feeding rate and powder standoff distance.These process parameters have a significant effect on the temperature history ofthe material which, among others, affects the grain structure, phase transformation, and cracking susceptibility of the material. To further understand the effects found in the material, temperature measurements has been conducted using a temperature measurement method developed and evaluated in this project. This method utilizes a thin stainless steel sheet to shield the thermocouple from the laser light. This has proved to reduce the influence of the laser energy absorbed by the thermocouples.

    Liquid Feedstock Plasma Spraying: An Emerging Process for Advanced Thermal Barrier Coatings2017Ingår i: Journal of thermal spray technology (Print), ISSN 1059-9630, E-ISSN 1544-1016, Vol. 26, nr 6, s. 1104-1114Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Liquid feedstock plasma spraying (LFPS) involves deposition of ultrafine droplets of suspensions or solution precursors (typically ranging from nano- to submicron size) and permits production of coatings with unique microstructures that are promising for advanced thermal barrier coating (TBC) applications. This paper reviews the recent progress arising from efforts devoted to development of high-performance TBCs using the LFPS approach. Advancements in both suspension plasma spraying and solution precursor plasma spraying, which constitute the two main variants of LFPS, are presented. Results illustrating the different types of the microstructures that can be realized in LFPS through appropriate process parameter control, model-assisted assessment of influence of coating defects on thermo-mechanical properties and the complex interplay between pore coarsening, sintering and crystallite growth in governing thermal conductivity are summarized. The enhancement in functional performances/lifetime possible in LFPS TBCs with multilayered architectures and by incorporating new pyrochlore chemistries such as gadolinium zirconate, besides the conventional single 8 wt.% yttria-stabilized zirconia insulating ceramic layer, is specifically highlighted.

    Lithospheric stress tensor from gravity and lithospheric structure models2017Ingår i: Pure and Applied Geophysics, ISSN 0033-4553, E-ISSN 1420-9136, Vol. 174, nr 7, s. 2677-2688Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    n this study we investigate the lithospheric stresses computed from the gravity and lithospheric structure models. The functional relation between the lithospheric stress tensor and the gravity field parameters is formulated based on solving the boundary-value problem of elasticity in order to determine the propagation of stresses inside the lithosphere, while assuming the horizontal shear stress components (computed at the base of the lithosphere) as lower boundary values for solving this problem. We further suppress the signature of global mantle flow in the stress spectrum by subtracting the long-wavelength harmonics (below the degree of 13). This numerical scheme is applied to compute the normal and shear stress tensor components globally at the Moho interface. The results reveal that most of the lithospheric stresses are accumulated along active convergent tectonic margins of oceanic subductions and along continent-to-continent tectonic plate collisions. These results indicate that, aside from a frictional drag caused by mantle convection, the largest stresses within the lithosphere are induced by subduction slab pull forces on the side of subducted lithosphere, which are coupled by slightly less pronounced stresses (on the side of overriding lithospheric plate) possibly attributed to trench suction. Our results also show the presence of (intra-plate) lithospheric loading stresses along Hawaii islands. The signature of ridge push (along divergent tectonic margins) and basal shear traction resistive forces is not clearly manifested at the investigated stress spectrum (between the degrees from 13 to 180).

    Local recovery of lithospheric stress tensor from GOCE gravitational tensor2017Ingår i: Geophysical Journal International, ISSN 0956-540X, E-ISSN 1365-246X, Vol. 209, nr 1, s. 317-333Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The sub-lithospheric stress due to mantle convection can be computed from gravity data and propagated through the lithosphere by solving the boundary-value problem of elasticity for the Earth's lithosphere. In this case, a full tensor of stress can be computed at any point inside this elastic layer. Here, we present mathematical foundations for recovering such a tensor from gravitational tensor measured at satellite altitudes. The mathematical relations will be much simpler in this way than the case of using gravity data as no derivative of spherical harmonics or Legendre polynomials is involved in the expressions. Here, new relations between the spherical harmonic coefficients of the stress and gravitational tensor elements are presented. Thereafter integral equations are established from them to recover the elements of stress tensor from those of the gravitational tensor. The integrals have no closed-form kernels, but they are easy to invert and their spatial truncation errors are reducible. The integral equations are used to invert the real data of the gravity field and steady-state ocean circulation explorer (GOCE) mission, in November 2009, over the South American plate and its surroundings to recover the stress tensor at a depth of 35 km. The recovered stress fields are in good agreement with the tectonic and geological features of the area.

    Main issues for a fully predictive plasma spray torch model and numerical considerations2017Ingår i: Plasma chemistry and plasma processing, ISSN 0272-4324, E-ISSN 1572-8986, Vol. 37, nr 3, s. 627-651Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Plasma spray is one of the most versatile and established techniques for the deposition of thick coatings that provide functional surfaces to protect or improve the performance of the substrate material. However, a greater understanding of plasma spray torch operation will result in improved control of process and coating properties and in the development of novel plasma spray processes and applications. The operation of plasma torches is controlled by coupled dynamic, thermal, chemical, electromagnetic, and acoustic phenomena that take place at different time and space scales. Computational modeling makes it possible to gain important insight into torch characteristics that are not practically accessible to experimental observations, such as the dynamics of the arc inside the plasma torch. This article describes the current main issues in carrying out plasma spray torch numerical simulations at a high level of fidelity. These issues encompass the use of non-chemical and non-thermodynamic equilibrium models, incorporation of electrodes with sheath models in the computational domain, and resolution of rapid transient events, including the so-called arc reattachment process. Practical considerations regarding model implementation are also discussed, particularly the need for the model to naturally reproduce the observed torch operation modes in terms of voltage and pressure fluctuations.

    MAX-phase coatings produced by thermal spraying2017Ingår i: Journal of Superhard Materials, ISSN 1063-4576, Vol. 39, nr 5, s. 355-364Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents a comparative study on the Ti2AlC coatings produced by different thermal spray methods, as Ti2AlC is one of the most studied materials from the MAX-phase family. Microstructural analysis of coatings produced by High Velocity Air Fuel (HVAF), Cold Spray and High Velocity Oxygen Fuel (HVOF) has been carried out by means of the scanning electron microscopy equipped with an energy dispersive spectrometer (EDS). The volume fraction of porosity was determined using the ASTM standard E562. The phase characterization of the as-received powder and as-sprayed coatings was conducted using the X-ray diffraction with CrKα radiation. Impact of the spray parameters on the porosity and the mechanical properties of the coatings are discussed. The results show that the spraying temperature and velocity play a crucial role in coatings characteristics. © 2017, Allerton Press, Inc.

    Metallurgical effects and distortions in laser welding of thin sheet steels with variations in strength2017Ingår i: Science and technology of welding and joining, ISSN 1362-1718, E-ISSN 1743-2936, Vol. 22, nr 7, s. 573-579Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Geometrical distortions occur while welding, but the understanding of how and why they occur and how to control them is limited. The relation between the weld width, weld metal volume, total energy input, width of hard zone and distortions when laser welding three different thin sheet steels with varying strength has therefore been studied. Weld metal volume and total energy input show a good correlation with distortion for one steel at a time. The best correlation with the when including all three steel grades was the width of the hard zone composed of weld metal and the martensitic area in the heat affected zone. © 2017 Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining.

    Microstructural Analyses of ATI 718Plus® Produced by Wire-ARC Additive Manufacturing Process2017Ingår i: Metallurgical and Materials Transactions. A, ISSN 1073-5623, E-ISSN 1543-1940, Vol. 48A, nr 9, s. 4211-4228Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    A detailed microstructural study of ATI 718Plus superalloy produced by the wire-arc additive manufacturing (WAAM) process was performed through the use of scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), electron probe micro-analysis (EPMA), and electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD). Extensive formation of eutectic solidification microconstituents including Laves and MC-type carbide phases, induced by micro-segregation, are observed in the build of the alloy in the as-deposited condition. Notwithstanding the significant segregation of niobium (Nb), which has been reported to promote the formation of the delta-phase in ATI 718Plus, only eta-phase particles are observed in the deposit. Excessive precipitation of eta-phase particles is found to be linked to Laves phase particles that are partially dissolved in the deposit after post-deposition heat treatment (PDHT). The EBSD analysis shows a high textured build in the aOE (c) 100 > directions with only a few misoriented grains at the substrate-deposit boundary and the top of the deposit. Investigation on the hardness of the build of the alloy, in the as-deposited condition, showed a softened zone about 2 mm wide at the deposited metal heat affected zone (DMHAZ), which has not been previously reported and potentially damaging to the mechanical properties. An extensive analysis with the use of both microstructural characterization tools and theoretical calculations shows that the DMHAZ has the lowest volume fraction of strengthening precipitates (gamma’ and gamma aEuro(3)) in terms of their number density, which therefore induces the observed softness. Delayed re-precipitation kinetics and the extent of the precipitation of gamma’ and gamma aEuro(3) in the DMHAZ which is related to the diffusion of segregated solute elements from the interdendritic regions are attributed to this phenomenon. The microstructural analyses discussed in this work are vital to adequate understanding of properties of ATI 718Plus produced by the additive manufacturing process technique.

    Microstructural characteristics and corrosion behavior of HVAF- and HVOF-sprayed Fe-based coatings2017Ingår i: Surface & Coatings Technology, ISSN 0257-8972, E-ISSN 1879-3347, Vol. 318, s. 365-373Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Fe-based coatings have been shown to be viable alternatives to the more expensive and less environmentally friendly Co- and Ni-based coatings. In the present work, the microstructural characteristics and corrosion behavior of Fe-based coatings deposited by high-velocity air fuel (HVAF) and high-velocity oxy fuel (HVOF) processes were comparatively investigated. Different sets of powder composition and particle size were used to decrease the porosity and increase the corrosion resistance of the coatings. The corrosion behavior of the coatings was studied using electrochemical techniques, including open-circuit potential (OCP) and polarization tests in 3.5 wt% NaCl at 25 °C. Techniques such as scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive spectrometry (EDS), and X-ray diffractometry (XRD) were used to characterize the as-sprayed and corroded coatings. The results revealed that the HVAF coatings had lower porosity and oxide content than the HVOF coatings. The polarization tests confirmed that the HVAF coatings sprayed with finer particle size (− 36 + 20 μm) have higher polarization resistance (Rp) than the coatings produced by powders (− 53 + 20 μm). Based on SEM analysis, it was observed that corrosion initiated and grew through the surface defects of the coating and propagated through inter-lamellar boundaries.
