- Bending Fatigue Testing of Commercial Purity Titanium for Dental Implants
Alexander E. Medvedev, Rimma Lapovok, Yuri Estrin, Terry C. Lowe and Venkata N. Anumalasetty
Article first published online: 4 MAY 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/adem.201600002
Bending fatigue testing of ultrafine-grained titanium shows that its strength is independent of the testing environment as opposed to conventional coarse-grained titanium, for which fatigue performance is slightly reduced when tested in simulated body fluid.
- Texture Development in Cold Deformed and Recrystallized Ti–30Nb–4Sn Alloy and Its Effects on Hardness and Young's Modulus
Leonardo Fanton, Nelson Batista de Lima, Alexandra de Oliveira França Hayama, Rubens Caram and João Batista Fogagnolo
Article first published online: 4 MAY 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/adem.201600058
This study analyzes the development of texture in cold rolled and recrystallized Ti–30Nb–4Sn alloy. Cold rolling promotes an increase in hardness and a decrease in Young's modulus. The decrease in Young's modulus with plastic deformation and the low Young's modulus of the recrystallized sample are associated with the development of texture.
- Thermodynamic Explanation for the Large Difference in Improving Shape Memory Effect of Fe–Mn Alloys by Co and Si Addition
Jie Chen, Jiangwei Sun, Qin Yang, Huabei Peng, Shanling Wang and Yuhua Wen

This figure shows that the values of chemical driving force for ϵ γ transformation () at room temperature (RT) in the Fe–Mn and Fe–Mn–Co alloys are much lower than in Fe–Mn–Si alloy. This result leads to the occurrence of the stress-induced reverse transformation of thermal ϵ martensite and the poorer shape memory effect in the Fe–Mn and Fe–Mn–Co alloys than in the Fe–Mn–Si alloy.
- Influence of Substrate Temperature on LPCVD ZnO Thin Film and Cu(In, Ga)Se2 Thin Film Solar Cells
Yuting Guo, Hongbing Zhu, Xiaona Niu, Wen Zhang, Zhiqiang Li, Jingwei Chen and Yaohua Mai
Article first published online: 3 MAY 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/adem.201600113
ZnO thin films are deposited at different substrate temperatures by low-pressure chemical vapor deposition (LPCVD) technique for application in Cu(In, Ga)Se2 thin film solar cells. The substrate temperature has a great influence on the properties of LPCVD ZnO thin films and the device performance of Cu(In, Ga)Se2 thin film solar cells.
- Bulk Metallic Glasses as Structural Materials: A Review
Jamie J. Kruzic
Article first published online: 3 MAY 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/adem.201600066
This paper reviews some of the mechanical behaviors of BMGs relevant for successful structural materials and how they compare and contrast with crystalline metals and ceramics. This paper also reviews some of the strategies that may be used to improve or exploit the characteristics of BMGs so that they may be used in engineering applications.
