The internal relative humidity (RH) plays a crucial role in most of the concrete properties. Self-desiccation caused by continuous cement hydration is a major factor affecting the RH of concrete. This paper investigates the relationship between RH and microstructure for cementitious systems in the case of self-desiccation. A series of paste...

This paper aims at studying microstructure and mechanical properties of spark plasma sintered (SPSed) Stellite®-6 cobalt-based superalloy. SPS is a sintering technique, based on a relatively fast resistance heating using a pulsed current. Fast sintering process, associated with minimum grain growth, results in excellent mechanical properties....

Solid-state bonding takes place during the extrusion process to produce a hollow metal profile through a porthole die, known as extrusion welding. Defective weld seams degrade extruded products in mechanical properties. The present research was aimed to determine the effect of extrusion condition on the longitudinal weld seam quality of a...

Oxide dispersion strengthened (ODS)Eurofer steel was prepared via mechanical alloying (MA)and spark plasma sintering (SPS). Different combinations of MA and SPS parameters were adopted in order to optimise the fabrication process. The experimental results show that the sample milled for 30 h, sintered at 1373 K at a pressure of 60 MPa has...

Dense calcium caseinate dispersions can be transformed into hierarchically fibrous structures by shear deformation. This transformation can be attributed to the intrinsic properties of calcium caseinate. Depending on the dispersion preparation method, a certain amount of air gets entrapped in the sheared protein matrix. Although anisotropy is...

A medium-Mn steel, exhibiting manganese macrosegregation, was investigated. In order to study how the microstructure development influences the fracture mechanisms, the steel was quenching and partitioning processed using two different partitioning temperatures. At 400 °C partitioning temperature, the microstructure exhibits intergranular...

The world’s infrastructure is vital for providing accommodation and mobility for people. Although it is obvious that the construction industry has been crucial for realizing building and civil infrastructures, it is also clear that building activities have a big impact on the environment. Still growing and developing societies and economies...

Significant attention has been given to the development of new materials and techniques to be employed in the construction market. One of the techniques which has drawn noticeable attention is the additive manufacturing process (a.k.a. 3-dimensional printing (3D printing)). One of the approaches of this construction technique is the extrusion of...

The HYMOSTRUC3D model has been used successfully to predict hydration and microstructure development of pure Portland cement paste. In recent years, a number of numerical models were proposed for optimizing the use of supplementary cementitious materials. Also HYMOSTRUC3D was extended for simulating the hydration and microstructure development...

In this study, UltraFast Heat Treatment (UFHT) was applied to a soft annealed medium carbon chromium molybdenum steel. The specimens were rapidly heated and subsequently quenched in a dilatometer. The resulting microstructure consists of chromium-enriched cementite and chromium carbides (in sizes between 5–500 nm) within fine (nano-sized)...

The effect of equal channel angular pressing (ECAP) on the microstructure and mechanical properties of AA6063 aluminum alloy was investigated. For this purpose, samples of AA6063 aluminum alloy were deformed up to 10 passes using ECAP and the evolution of microstructure, texture and dislocation density was investigated. It was found that the...

Recycled concrete aggregates (RCA) have been widely used as concrete aggregates in construction. This is due to economic and environmental benefits of using RCA in concrete. Unlike natural aggregate (NA), the use of RCA in concrete seems not promising to the users implementing it, especially in structural purposes. The RCA concrete is reported...
