      A composite of Titanium, Niobium, and Aluminum has been severely plastically deformed using a repetitive bundling and swaging technique. This process allows to reaching high logarithmic deformation strains. In consequence, an ultra-fine grained (ufg) microstructure of all phases is observed, resulting in a high specific strength, making this materials suitable for constructive applications.

    2. Using Ab Initio Calculations in Designing bcc MgLi–X Alloys for Ultra-Lightweight Applications (pages 1198–1205)

      William Art Counts, Martin Friák, Dierk Raabe and Jörg Neugebauer

      Article first published online: 29 NOV 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/adem.201000225

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Quantum-mechanical calculations are employed to study elastic properties of bcc MgLi–X ternaries in an attempt to increase both specific Young's modulus and ductility. Motivated by recently found fundamental materials design limitation that links an increase of one the two criteria with a decrease of the other, a multi-physics methodology is applied to both Mg8Li7X and Mg7Li8X with solutes X from either the 3rd row elements (Na, Al, Si, P, S, Cl) or 4th row transition metals (Sc, Ti, V, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn). The studied 16 solutes offer a variety of properties but not a simultaneous increase of both criteria.

    3. Fast, Physically-Based Algorithms for Online Calculations of Texture and Anisotropy during Fabrication of Steel Sheets (pages 1206–1211)

      Myrjam Winning and Dierk Raabe

      Article first published online: 15 NOV 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/adem.201000206

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Because of the complex microstructures of crystalline materials it is not possible to obtain fast and on-line simulations of crystallographic texture in the course of deformation- and heat treatment procedures. We introduce a hybrid approach for the texture prediction for ferritic steel sheets during cold rolling and annealing which is based on two consecutive models: an ANN for the description of the rolling texture evolution and an analytical texture component model for recrystallization.

    4. Mechanical Properties of Friction Stir Welded Mg/Mg- and Mg/Al-Joints (pages 1212–1219)

      Otmar Klag, Guntram Wagner and Dietmar Eifler

      Article first published online: 12 NOV 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/adem.201000238

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The friction stir welding technology is a well suited joining technique to perform high-quality joints between lightweight metals. Within this work the weldability of similar Mg/Mg-joints of die casted Mg-alloys AZ91D, MRI153M, and MRI230D and hybrid joints between AZ91D and the rolled aluminum alloy AA5454 will be described. The FSW-joints were analyzed by using light and scanning electron microscopy. Beside the mechanical properties the corrosion behavior was investigated.

    5. Novel Zirconia–Alumina Nanocomposites Combining High Strength and Toughness (pages 1220–1223)

      Article first published online: 13 SEP 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/adem.201000181

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Alumina toughened zirconia (ATZ) composites, combining a matrix of tetragonal zirconia polycrystals (TZP) and an alumina dispersion, are known for their high strength, toughness, and abrasion resistance. Depending on the type of stabilizing oxide in TZP the materials can be tailored to be either extremely strong (Y–TZP) or extremely tough (Ce–TZP) with a considerable cutback in the complementary property. Novel nanocomposite ATZ materials consisting of TZP co-stabilized by neodymium and yttrium oxide (Nd–Y–TZP) combined with a reinforcement of 0–40 vol% alumina were produced to achieve high bending strength of 1200–1500MPa at a toughness of 8–12 MPa·√m. TZP was produced by coating monoclinic nanopowder with 1.5 mol% yttria and 1.5 mol% neodymia. The powder was then blended with submicron size alumina and consolidated by hot pressing.

    6. Testing of Thermal Barrier Coatings by Laser Excitation (pages 1224–1229)

      Daniel Nies, Robert Pulz, Steffen Glaubitz, Monika Finn, Birgit Rehmer and Birgit Skrotzki

      Article first published online: 9 NOV 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/adem.201000212

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Most experiments to estimate lifetimes of thermal barrier coatings are done by burner-rig-tests, where operating conditions are simulated by cyclic heating of a specimen. This work presents a possible experimental setup and first results to do comparable experiments by heating the specimen with laser irradiation. The temperature of the specimen surface is determined by an infrared camera. Failures in the coating could be detected by thermography and acoustic emission.

    7. Linking Grain Boundaries and Grain Growth in Ceramics (pages 1230–1234)

      Michael Bäurer, Heike Störmer, Dagmar Gerthsen and Michael J. Hoffmann

      Article first published online: 10 NOV 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/adem.201000214

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Linking grain growth and grain boundaries in ceramics is a long desired goal of materials research in order to tailor microstructures suitable for applications. In this study it is shown how a combination of grain growth experiments and TEM examinations of grain boundaries can be used to establish a link between grain boundary structure and behavior during grain growth.

    8. Stripe-Like Pattern Formation in Airbrush-Spray Deposition of Colloidal Polymer Film (pages 1235–1239)

      Adeline Buffet, Mottakin M. Abul Kashem, Jan Perlich, Gerd Herzog, Matthias Schwartzkopf, Rainer Gehrke and Stephan V. Roth

      Article first published online: 10 NOV 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/adem.201000224

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      We use the technique of grazing incidence small angle X-ray scattering (GISAXS) and atomic force microscopy (AFM) to investigate the ordering of colloidal polymer films deposited on Silicon substrates by airbrush-spray coating. The study reveals that stripe-type structures are installed and that these structures consist in hexagonally close-packed colloids.

    1. Pummelos as Concept Generators for Biomimetically Inspired Low Weight Structures with Excellent Damping Properties (pages B658–B663)

      Sebastian F. Fischer, Marc Thielen, Ruth R. Loprang, Robin Seidel, Claudia Fleck, Thomas Speck and Andreas Bührig-Polaczek

      Article first published online: 15 NOV 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/adem.201080065

      This paper shows the approach how natural hierarchical structures can be transferred to technical components: There should be specialists, who analyze the natural role model to highlight the structure–function relationship. With the help of this input, the engineer can transfer the focused structures. Before the structure transfer, the engineer has to point out a suitable production process and an appropriate material. The material scientists have to find the right test methods and specimen dimensions to identify the effect of different hierarchical levels. All these presented aspects are conducted with results for every section of the structure transfer. Beside the procedure of a structure transfer, the paper presents an aspect of bio-inspired devices beyond the lotus effect. Newly security components with high damping could be generated from our research.

    1. Nanocomposite Elastomeric Biomaterials for Myocardial Tissue Engineering Using Embryonic Stem Cell-derived Cardiomyocytes (pages B664–B674)

      Hedeer Jawad, Miroslawa El Fray, Aldo R. Boccaccini, Sian E. Harding, Jamie S. Wright, Qizhi Chen, Agnieszka Piegat and Nadire N. Ali

      Article first published online: 10 DEC 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/adem.201080078

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      This study examined the potential of a new nanostructured elastomer to deliver embryonic stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes (ESC-CM) to an infarcted area of the myocardium. Materials investigated were soft and strong poly(aliphatic/aromatic-ester) multiblock thermoplastic elastomers with poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) hard segments and dimerized fatty acid, i.e., dilinoleic acid (DLA) soft segments, respectively, with and without addition of 0.2 wt% TiO2 nanoparticles. Addition of TiO2 nanoparticles enhanced adhesion and spreading of ESC-CM derived from mouse and human embryonic stem cells. The new materials did not affect the functional activity of spontaneously beating hESC-CM and the cells continued to demonstrate contractile activity on the materials for more than 2 months in culture. The results indicate that PET/DLA and PET/DLA-TiO2 are promising candidates for the manufacture of engineered patches to deliver ESC-CMs.

    1. In Situ ATR-FTIR Spectroscopy on the Deposition and Protein Interaction of Polycation/Alginate Multilayers (pages B676–B683)

      Martin Müller, Bernhard Torger and Bernd Keßler

      Article first published online: 17 NOV 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/adem.201080059

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      In situ ATR-FTIR-spectroscopy studies on the deposition and protein interactions of polycation/alginate multilayers relevant for biomedical surface modification are reported. The found exponential and modulated multilayer growth as a function of the adsorption step suggests competition between the uptake and release of polyelectrolytes. At neutral pH, polycation-terminated multilayers bind strongly with human serum albumin, which is assumed to be located preferentially at the outside of the multilayer.

    2. The Influence of Particle Size on the Mechanical Properties of Dental Glass Ionomer Cements (pages B684–B689)

      Björn Brandt, Ulrich Lohbauer, Mathias Göken and Karsten Durst

      Article first published online: 7 OCT 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/adem.201080067

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The toughening and hardening potential of the glass grain size and solid fraction of glass ionomer cements (GICs) are assessed using nanoindentation and fracture-toughness testing. For a sufficient workability of the cement paste, a grain-size-dependent fraction of solid phase has to be used. The decreased solid fraction for the fine-grained cement causes a slight reduction of hardness and modulus, whereas the small grain size leads to the lowest fracture toughness. The optimal solution for tough, strong and workable cements seems to be bimodal mixtures, providing crack deflection and high glass solid fractions by coarse particles and a large reactive surface area by smaller particles.

      Article first published online: 20 OCT 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/adem.201080055

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Magnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (Fe-NP) contain an iron oxide core (Fe3O4 or γ-Fe2O3) and a ligand shell which consists of small organic molecules, polymers, or proteins and is essential for the stable dispersion of such nanoparticles in physiological media.

    2. Principles of Branching Morphology and Anatomy in Arborescent Monocotyledons and Columnar Cacti as Concept Generators for Branched Fiber-Reinforced Composites (pages B695–B698)

      Hannes Schwager, Tobias Haushahn, Christoph Neinhuis, Thomas Speck and Tom Masselter

      Article first published online: 28 OCT 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/adem.201080057

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      With the intention of biomimetic optimization of branched technical fiber-composite structures, the ramifications of arborescent (tree-like) monocotyledonous plants and of columnar cacti are analyzed with light microscopical as well as state-of-the-art engineering techniques. The results of these investigations, especially the found fine-tuned shape and fiber set-up, may help to find alternative concepts for braided fiber-reinforced composite structures with limited design space.

    3. XPS Studies of Magnesium Surfaces after Exposure to Dulbecco's Modified Eagle Medium, Hank's Buffered Salt Solution, and Simulated Body Fluid (pages B699–B704)

      Di Tie, Frank Feyerabend, Norbert Hort, Regine Willumeit and Daniel Hoeche

      Article first published online: 17 NOV 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/adem.201080070

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      In this study, the use of XPS for the analysis of corrosion products in three widely used cell culture media was evaluated. These results made the first step on the road to predict magnesium corrosion behavior and corrosion products in an in vitro biomaterial test, and also provide a standard to evaluate which medium is more proper when applied in a certain test.
