Carbon may precipitate during the hot metal desulfurization (HMD) process as a result of carbon oversaturation because of temperature decrease. The precipitated carbon flakes form a layer between hot metal and slag. It is postulated that this carbon layer hampers desulfurization with magnesium by preventing MgS particles from reaching the...

Social life cycle assessment (SLCA) was developed to complement the environmental life cycle assessment (LCA) and economic assessment. Contrary to LCA, SLCA is not yet standardized, and the consequential approach is little discussed in literature. This study aims to perform a consequential SLCA and investigate the applicability of the method...

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...

When a bone is fractured, it loses its structural integrity which makes it unable to bear any mechanical load. Therefore, a broken bone must be supported until it regains its strength to handle the body's movement and weight. A surgical procedure is needed to set a fractured bone. This procedure often involves repositioning the bone fragments...

Modern life is moving towards a mobile and sustainable energy economy, in which rechargeable batteries play an essential role as a power supply. The current battery of choice is Li ion battery that is dominating the market but faces great challenges for future use mainly due to the demand for higher capacities and target for cost reduction. Next...

Magnesium and its alloys have the intrinsic capability of degrading over time in vivo without leaving toxic degradation products. They are therefore suitable for use as biodegradable scaffolds that are replaced by the regenerated tissues. One of the main concerns for such applications, particularly in load-bearing areas, is the sufficient...

Optimized stent pattern design can effectively enhance the mechanical performance of magnesium alloy stents by adjusting strain distribution and evolution during stent deformation, thereby overcoming the limitations imposed by the intrinsic mechanical properties of magnesium alloys. In the present study, a new stent design pattern for...

At the hot metal desulphurisation (HMD) stations of Tata Steel’s BOS plant in Port Talbot (UK), KAlF4 is injected together with magnesium in order to increase the fluidity of the slag and thus to decrease the iron loss. Although KAlF4 is successfully contributing to a lower iron loss during HMD, it also has a negative effect on the...

The present research was aimed at developing magnesium-matrix composites that could allow effective control over their physiochemical and mechanical responses when in contact with physiological solutions. A biodegradable, bioactive ceramic - bredigite was chosen as the reinforcing phase in the composites, based on the hypothesis that the...

HIsarna is a smelting reduction ironmaking process that is currently in the pilot plant development phase. HIsarna produces hot metal with higher sulphur, lower phosphorus and manganese, almost no silicon and titanium and a lower temperature compared to the blast furnace. Because of that, desulphurisation of the HIsarna hot metal is one of the...

Torsional forced-oscillation experiments on a suite of synthetic MgO polycrystals, of high-purity and average grain sizes of 1–100 µm, reveal strongly viscoelastic behavior at temperatures of 800–1300°C and periods between 1 and 1000 s. The measured shear modulus and associated strain energy dissipation both display monotonic variations with...

Magnesium alloys have, in recent years, been recognized as highly promising biodegradable materials, especially for vascular stent applications. Forming of magnesium alloys into high-precision thin-wall tubes has however presented a technological barrier in the fabrication of vascular stents, because of the poor workability of magnesium at room...

The human body is a buffered environment where pH is effectively maintained. HEPES is a biological buffer often used to mimic the buffering activity of the body in in vitro studies on the degradation behavior of magnesium. However, the influence of HEPES on the degradation behavior of magnesium in the DMEM pseudo-physiological solution has not...

Nanostructuring of functional materials is an essential part in the design of energy related devices – but the industrial tools we have to make these materials are lacking. This dissertation explores the green, flexible, and scalable spark discharge process for the fabrication of complex nanostructured materials, and the application of said...

Reliable and affordable energy storage represents a bottleneck in a scenario where renewable energy sources become prominent on the energy market. With its high potential energy density and the natural abundance of the element, hydrogen gas is an attractive energy storage medium. But its gaseous nature, its high explosive potential and...

The aim of this thesis is to study the thermodynamics of hydrogenation of nanoconfined magnesium within a thin film multilayer model system. Magnesium hydride is a potential material for hydrogen storage, which is a key component in a renewable energy system based on hydrogen. In bulk form, magnesium hydride is very stable, which means that...

A self-healing corrosion protective coating was developed using TiO2 particles and casein as pH-sensitive organic agents that is also environmentally friendly materials. A film structured of TiO2 particles was formed on a substrate (magnesium alloy) by dip-coating followed by immersion in a casein solution. Casein was inserted and fixed in the...

The impact response of fiber metal laminates (FMLs), has been investigated with experiments and numerical simulations, which is reported in this article. Low-velocity impacts were carried out to study the effects of metal type and thickness within FMLs. Glare5-3/2 laminates with two aluminum layer thicknesses and a similar FML containing...

Ce3+-doped Ba3MgSi2O8 phosphors were prepared by a solid-state reaction route. The photoluminescence properties in the vacuum ultraviolet-vis spectral range and the x ray excited radioluminescence were investigated. Ce3+ ions were found to enter three different sites in the host lattice. Five excitation bands and two emission bands of Ce(1)3+...
