    The new (Ti-Zr)-1.5Mo-3Sn biomedical alloy showing large superelastic recovery strain of 7% and Young's modulus of 60 GPa was characterized and compared with CP Ti and Ti-6Al-4V alloys currently used in medicine.

  2. Corrosion resistance of high-alloyed stainless steel membrane supports under flue gas conditions of a lignite-fueled power plant

    Metal-supported silica membranes are attractive candidates for CO2 capture from the exhaust gas. Long-term corrosion resistance of the metal support is mandatory for this new membrane concept. A research concept is introduced, which enables the benchmark of promising support materials by combing field tests in the power plant and standardized corrosion tests according DIN 50918. Preliminary results of promising substrate candidates are presented.

  3. Effect of sol–gel prepared nanoalumina reinforcement content on the corrosion resistances of Al 6061-Al2O3 nanocomposite in 3.5% NaCl solution

    Reinforcement of 0.5 wt% sol–gel prepared nanoalumina particles with Al-6061 alloy increases the corrosion resistance of the synthesized nanocomposite in 3.5% NaCl solution more than 30 times. Exceeding 2 wt% of nanoalumina reinforcement results in a steep increase of corrosion rate and corrosion becomes worse than the base alloy after 2.5 wt% of reinforcement of nanoparticles.

  4. Effect of electroosmotic flow of aqueous suspension of nanosilica on the properties of carbonated concrete

    E. Redaelli, F. Torabian Isfahani, F. Lollini, H. T. Wu and L. Bertolini

    Electroosmosis is used to inject nanosilica particles dispersed in aqueous suspension inside carbonated concrete with the aim of improving its durability properties. Bulk properties of concrete, like density and water absorption, are not affected by the treatment, nor is sorptivity, whilst concrete electrical resistivity increases and porosity decreases after the treatment, indicating a mild ‘sealing’ effect on the surface.
