Redistribution Mechanisms and Quantification of Homogeneity in Friction Stir Welding and Processing of an Aluminum Silicon Alloy
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2012-09)
The uniformity (homogeneity) of nondeforming particle distributions in a cast alloys microstructure is highly important in controlling the materials strength, ductility, and fatigue resistance. Friction stir processing ...
Measurements and observations of interfacial creep in engineering systems
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2002., 2002-09)
In many applications, large shear stresses develop at interfaces between dissimilar materials during thermo-mechanical excursions, when there is a significant difference in the coefficient of thermal expansion between them. ...
