Alloys are materials having metallic properties and are composed of two or more elements, at least one of which is a metal. In the case of aluminum alloys, most of them contain 90 to 96% aluminum. Aluminum alloys are divided into two categories, wrought alloys and cast alloys. Aluminum casting alloys are used in a large number of applications including automobiles, trucks, transmission of electricity, development of transportation infrastructures, and in the aerospace and other industries.Over the years, aluminum-copper (Al-Cu) cast alloys have been increasingly investigated, the reason being that copper has a significant impact on the strength and hardness of aluminum castings at both ambient and elevated service temperatures. Due to the presence of copper, the mechanical properties of these alloys may be improved via age hardening through the formation of Al2Cu precipitates following aging treatment. This book will first introduce and summarize all about the Al-Cu, LPDC and types of casting, for the objectives, results and conclusions of this study, you need to follow the author's coming publications.

Fady Elsayed Microstructure and Properties of Mg-Sn-Ca alloys with 3. Al additions

Technical demands for magnesium alloys are sufficient room, and elevated temperature mechanical properties, as well as corrosion resistance according to desired application. A new class of magnesium alloys based on the Mg-Sn system has been studied with many ternary alloying elements with emphasis on the Mg-Sn-Ca system due to their attractive property profile especially concerning creep resistance. This research work investigates the effect of 3 wt.% Al additions on two selected Mg- Sn-Ca alloys namely the Mg-3Sn-2Ca (TX32) alloy, and the Mg-9Sn-1Ca (TX91)alloy at different temper conditions, with the aim of improving room temperature mechanical properties, and corrosion resistance. A comparison of experimental results for the new Mg-Sn-Al-Ca (TAX) alloys, with their base Mg-Sn-Ca (TX) alloys, is performed, and explicitly discussed. The results showed enhanced hardening response in some of the alloys while the corrosion resistance deteriorated significantly. Al additions were found to have a favorable effect on strength of Mg-Sn-Ca(TX) alloys while they caused rapid decrease in their corrosion resistance.

Aigbodion Victor Sunday Solid State Precipitation of Aluminium Alloys

Thermal analysis is a useful technique for the study of solid phase transformations and has been widely applied to study precipitation in aluminium alloys, but the results are generally interpreted qualitatively. Quantitative interpretation of Differential Scanning Calorimetry(DSC) experiments on ternary aluminium-based alloys has been attempted, and can improve understanding of their thermodynamics and kinetics of precipitation. Three separate, distinctly kinetic models were used in the studying of the precipitation reactions. The analysis should help shed some light on solid state reactions in aluminium alloy, and should be especially useful to professionals in Engineering and Science fields, or anyone else who may be considering usage of aluminium alloys

Syed Kamil Nickel Free Titanium Based Shape Memory Alloys

Biomedical shape memory alloys are required to have a superior corrosion resistance, biocompatibility and stable shape memory properties. Among many shape memory alloys, only NiTi alloys have been widely applied for biomedical applications, because they satisfy the above requirements. However, it has been pointed out that pure nickel is a toxic element and cause nickel hypersensitivity. It is preferable to develop absolutely safe nickel free titanium based shape memory alloys composed of non-toxic elements such as niobium for biomedical applications. In this book, the effect of molybdenum addition in Ti-Nb binary alloy was investigated. Two alloys with varying compositions namely alloy 1 (Ti-26at%Nb) and alloy 2 (Ti-26at%Nb-0.1at%Mo) were developed. After homogenization and cold rolling, samples of dimensions 30×3×0.86 mm were prepared using diamond cutting machine. The prepared samples were solution treated and then subjected to different tests to evaluate their properties. There is slight increase in micro-hardness (Hv) with increase in molybdenum. XRD spectra revealed the presence of two phases in the solution treated samples, α-martensite (Ti4Nb) and retained austenite (β).

The essential reference for human development theory, updated and reconceptualized The Handbook of Child Psychology and Developmental Science, a four-volume reference, is the field-defining work to which all others are compared. First published in 1946, and now in its Seventh Edition, the Handbook has long been considered the definitive guide to the field of developmental science. Volume 2: Cognitive Processes describes cognitive development as a relational phenomenon that can be studied only as part of a larger whole of the person and context relational system that sustains it. In this volume, specific domains of cognitive development are contextualized with respect to biological processes and sociocultural contexts. Furthermore, key themes and issues (e.g., the importance of symbolic systems and social understanding) are threaded across multiple chapters, although every each chapter is focused on a different domain within cognitive development. Thus, both within and across chapters, the complexity and interconnectivity of cognitive development are well illuminated. Learn about the inextricable intertwining of perceptual development, motor development, emotional development, and brain development Understand the complexity of cognitive development without misleading simplification, reducing cognitive development to its biological substrates, or viewing it as a passive socialization process Discover how each portion of the developmental process contributes to subsequent cognitive development Examine the multiple processes – such as categorizing, reasoning, thinking, decision making and judgment – that comprise cognition The scholarship within this volume and, as well, across the four volumes of this edition, illustrate that developmental science is in the midst of a very exciting period. There is a paradigm shift that involves increasingly greater understanding of how to describe, explain, and optimize the course of human life for diverse individuals living within diverse contexts. This Handbook is the definitive reference for educators, policy-makers, researchers, students, and practitioners in human development, psychology, sociology, anthropology, and neuroscience.

The aim of this book is to understand and describe the martensitic phase transformation and the process of martensite platelet reorientation. These two key elements enable the author to introduce the main features associated with the behavior of shape-memory alloys (SMAs), i.e. the one-way shape-memory effect, pseudo-elasticity, training and recovery. Attention is paid in particular to the thermodynamical frame for solid materials modeling at the macroscopic scale and its applications, as well as to the particular use of such alloys – the simplified calculations for the bending of bars and their torsion. Other chapters are devoted to key topics such as the use of the “crystallographical theory of martensite” for SMA modeling, phenomenological and statistical investigations of SMAs, magneto-thermo-mechanical behavior of magnetic SMAs and the fracture mechanics of SMAs. Case studies are provided on the dimensioning of SMA elements offering the reader an additional useful framework on the subject. Contents 1. Some General Points about SMAs. 2. The World of Shape-memory Alloys. 3. Martensitic Transformation. 4. Thermodynamic Framework for the Modeling of Solid Materials. 5. Use of the “CTM” to Model SMAs. 6. Phenomenological and Statistical Approaches for SMAs. 7. Macroscopic Models with Internal Variables. 8. Design of SMA Elements: Case Studies. 9. Behavior of Magnetic SMAs. 10. Fracture Mechanics of SMAs. 11. General Conclusion. Appendix 1. Intrinsic Properties of Rotation Matrices. Appendix 2. “Twinning Equation” Demonstration. Appendix 3.

Benno Schmidt Development through Culture

Master's Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Art - Arts Management, grade: 10.0 out of 10.0, University of València (DCADHA), course: Gestión Cultural, language: English, abstract: For at least three decades the topic of culture has been one of the central elements of development cooperation policies around the world. Numerous reports on the implications of culture in societal and human development processes have inspired researchers and intellectuals as well as policy-makers and cultural operators to look for new tools in order to ensure the adequate position of culture in overall development cooperation strategies. In the context of the current worldwide economic crisis, the challenge of effective and inclusive development cooperation seems more pressing then ever.Today, German and European decision-makers, local authorities, the private sector and civil society, are taking an increasing interest in culture in its various forms as a contributing factor to development on a human scale. It has shown that cultural awareness shows off in terms of economic performance and human development, but also that cultural resources are infinite if one knows how to apply their creative potential. Examples at local as well as at German, European and worldwide levels, show that culture as a resource for development has a high potential for attracting businesses, job creation, generating income and investment, while providing a matrix in which anyone can invent the terms of his or h...
