Some results of thermodynamic, structural and physical properties of Al-Sn-Zn alloys are presented in our paper. The ternary Al-Sn-Zn alloys were prepared in a resistance furnace in evacuated ampoules. The alloys were studied metallographically, their micro-hardness and X-ray micro-analysis (EDX, SEM) of individual phases were measured. Temperatures of phase transitions (liquidus, solidus, invariant reactions, etc.) were obtained using the DTA method (Setaram SETSYS 18 (TM)). The long time annealing (250, 300, 350 degrees C, 3, 7, 14 or 28 days) was used in order to achieve the thermodynamic equilibrium. The results were confronted with thermodynamic modelling of the ternary Al Sn Zn system in the Institute of Physics of Materials AS of the Czech Republic in Brno. We have studied density (by gamma-absorption method), electrical resistivity (by contactless method in rotating magnetic field) and magnetic susceptibility (by Faraday's method) of some Al-Sn-Zn alloys containing up to 10 at.% of aluminum and up to 65 at.% of zinc. The increasing of zinc content resulted in the decrease of the density and susceptibility values, except for one sample. The resistivity values practically didn't depend on the zinc content in the crystalline state, whereas a maximum was found for one of the samples in the liquid state. This work has been made in the frame of COST Action MP0602 project 'Advanced Solder Materials for High-Temperature Application'.
The Segregation in Ferrous Alloys when Casting Heavy Castings
Pernica, Vítězslav ; Čech, Jan (referee) ; Vodárek, Vlastimil (referee) ; Havlíček,, František (referee) ; Šenberger, Jaroslav (advisor)
This thesis is dedicated to the field of manufacture of heavy steel castings with resulting properties which are influenced by long solidification time. During the long solidification time a segregation process of additives in the steel occurs which results in numerous metallurgical defects. The work was intended to observe the macrosegregation effects in the wall of a heavy experimental steel casting respectively a part of a real superheavy casting intended for cement furnaces (weight 210 t). The steel casting for the research was manufactured in the joint-stock company of VHM where such heavy castings are commonly produced for the market. The supplied piece of the steel casting was cut into the smaller pieces for the better examination. The examination resulted in information about the casting macrostructure and chemical heterogeneity of chosen elements in the casting wall. The heterogeneity of the chosen elements (C, Mn, Si, Cr, S, P) is clearly shown in the worked out visual concentration maps. Based on the experimental data the measured results of segregations were confronted with the results of segregation modelling with the use of the commercial simulation software ProCAST. It resulted in the conclusion that the prediction of segregations is not in accordance with the reality. Furthermore, the results from the experimental casting are shortly compared with previously manufactured castings of the same type and the results summarizing the found range of macrosegregations of the tested sample are interpreted in the work conclusion.
Application of Electron Backscatter Diffraction in Materials Engineering
Man, Ondřej ; Vodárek, Vlastimil (referee) ; Svoboda, Milan (referee) ; Švejcar, Jiří (advisor)
The thesis deals with principles and common applications of the electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) method. Some practical experience in application of the method to a study of highly deformed structure of copper and its thermal stability is described on one hand, and, on the other hand, to a study of phase composition of TRIP steel on various levels of imposed strain. The limitations of EBSD method are discussed along with its resolution in comparison with other complimentary techniques.
New types of lead-free solders and their properties
Drápala, J. ; Petlák, D. ; Malcharcziková, J. ; Vodárek, V. ; Konečná, K. ; Smetana, B. ; Zlá, S. ; Kostiuková, G. ; Seidlerová, J. ; Lasek, S. ; Madaj, M. ; Kroupa, Aleš ; Urbánek, J. ; Dušek, K. ; Sedláček, J. ; Sidorov, V.E.
Ternary and binary alloys with different ratios of Ag, Al, Bi, Cu, In, Mg, Sb, Sn and Zn were prepared experimentally. The following characteristics were studied: temperatures and enthalpies of phase transformations (DTA, TG, DSC), macro-and micro-structural analysis, micro-hardness, chemical analysis, X-ray and density measurements and electrical resistivity of selected solders, test of wettability with or without use of fluxes, measurement of corrosion properties.
The exploitation of thermodynamic calculations for optimalization of chemical composition of ferritic heat resistant steels
Foldyna, V. ; Kroupa, Aleš ; Kuboň, Z. ; Jakobová, A. ; Vodárek, V.
The thermodznamic calculations allow to predict the amount of Mo and/or W in the solid solution and the amount of V and/or Nb bound in the nitride or carbide. The observed structural changes found during the creep exposure confirm the usefullness of the thermodynamic calculations especially for the modification of chemical composition of known types of steels and also for the proposal of new steels.
Prediction of senzitization to intergranular corrosion in AISI 316L stainless steel
Matula, M. ; Hyspecká, L. ; Svoboda, Milan ; Vodárek, V. ; Dagbert, C. ; Galland, J. ; Cavallini, M.
Sensitization of stainless steels AISI 316L to integranular corrosion was studied by comparison of microstructural examination and electrochemical corrosion tests. It is shown that the normalization of chromium depletion and results of the Double Loop Electrochemical Potentiokinetic Reactivation gave mutually comparable results.
