    In this study, a novel method, namely, introduction of yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) short fibers in functionally graded system, is used to solve the long-term durability of TBCs. Thermal cycling lifetime of this TBC is improved greatly. The improvement is mainly attributed to the fiber breakage, the fiber-matrix interface debonding, and the crack deflection.

    Crystallographic texture of rectangular hot extruded Mg-alloys show a strong variation in texture type and texture sharpness. Examples show the (0002) and the (10–10) pole figures of Mg-AZ61 and MG-ZC71, first one with strong deformation texture and second one with strong recrystallization texture.

  4. Improving Mechanical Properties of cp Titanium by Heat Treatment Optimization

    Mechanical properties are determined for cp titanium sheets after various heat treatments leading to different states (full or partial recrystallyzation). The YS increases without significant loss of ductility due to grain size and texture. Anisotropy is taken into account to define the best compromise.

  5. Life-Cycle Assessment of Solar Charger with Integrated Organic Photovoltaics

    Ecodesign of electronic equipment as a key action supporting circular economy, reduce the energy consumption and other environmental impacts occurring throughout their life cycle. In this study, a new organic photovoltaic-based solar charger produced according to circular economy principles, is compared to well-established products in terms of environmental performance when used and disposed in Denmark or China, indicating ecodesign improvements.
