    Durable, recyclable, and superhydrophobic nanocomposite coatings are prepared on fabric and steel mesh. The coatings comprise titania nanoparticles and polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS). The substrates are initially coated with PDMS, followed by deposition of titania/PDMS nanocomposite coating. The resulting highly hydrophobic materials are utilized for the separation of oil–water mixtures.

    Ag@Sn Core-shell Powder Preforms is successfully prepared, the preforms required only a short time (5 min) reflow processing at 250 °C, but the resulting interconnections can withstand a high temperature up to 480 °C and exhibit excellent electrical and thermal conductivities due to the high density and the embedded Ag particles in the interconnections.

  3. Effect of Creep and Aging on the Precipitation Kinetics of an Al-Cu Alloy after ne Pass of ECAP

    The authors analyze how a combination of mechanical load, aging time, and temperature affects the precipitation kinetics of AA2017 after ECAP. The authors find that different creep strains lead to the formation of two different regions in the microstructure: regions (A) with only a few coarsened θ-phase precipitates, and regions (B) with numerous, finely dispersed precipitates.

  4. Influence of Ultrafine-Grained Layer on Gaseous Nitriding of Large-Sized Titanium Plate

    The authors firstly investigat the effect of ultrafine-grained layer on gaseous nitriding of large titanium plate. The results show that the nitrided thickness of the ultrafine-grained plate is thicker than that of the coarse-grained plate at each nitriding temperature, and the greatest difference between the MSB treated and coarse-grained plates occur at 750 °C.

  5. Phase-Field Modeling of Microstructural Evolution by Freeze-Casting

    A phase-field model is developed to investigate microstructural evolution by the freeze-casting process. Under the assumption that the colloidal particles can be represented by a concentration field, the interfacial condition of mass conservation, the Gibbs-Thomson condition, and particle segregation can be naturally included in the model. The morphology of dendritic ice crystal and accumulation of ceramic particles are accurately captured.
