Berkeley Lab Research Could Accelerate Development of New Metallic Materials for the Aerospace Industry

For the first time, researchers at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have built and trained machine learning algorithms to predict defect behavior in certain intermetallic compounds with high accuracy. This method will accelerate research of new advanced alloys and lightweight new materials for applications spanning automotive to aerospace and much more. Their results were published in the December 2016 issue of Nature Computational Materials. Materials are never chemically pure and structurally flawless. They almost always contain defects, which play an important role in dictating properties. These defects may appear as vacancies, which are Read more

A major point of pain has been the forging shop as it has not delivered the expected returns. The company has spent close to Rs 3,000 crore in building a nuclear forge shop to become the super hi-tech company of India. However, the tsunami in Japan in 2011 changed the outlook for nuclear power plants. that things could improve from 2018 because many nuclear reactors are coming and some forging will be made here. So from virtually 20% proper utilisation, it will go to 70 %. On photo India’s biggest open die hydraulic press (9000 MT) with 150 MT manipulator (Credit Photo @ LT Heavy Engineering)

Over the last couple of decades, L&T has entered several new businesses and geographies to grow topline. But not all these business lines have delivered the kind of growth anticipated.

Identification of the 3-D coordinates of 6,569 iron and 16,627 platinum atoms in an iron-platinum nanoparticle to correlate 3-D atomic arrangements with material properties at the single-atom level. In the world of the very tiny, perfection is rare: virtually all materials have defects on the atomic level. These imperfections — missing atoms, atoms of one type swapped for another, and misaligned atoms — can uniquely determine a material’s properties and function. Now, UCLA physicists and collaborators have mapped the coordinates of more than 23,000 individual atoms in a tiny iron-platinum nanoparticle to reveal the material’s defects. The results demonstrate that the Read more

KTH Develops a new Fe-10Cr-4Al-Zr steel grade for the Swedish Advanced Lead Reactor (US)

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInPin on PinterestEmail this to someonePrint this page

The technological breakthrough developed by KTH in cooperation with the Swedish steel industry is a new aluminum and zirconium alloyed steel (Fe-10Cr-4Al-Zr) that provides adequate long-term performance in hot lead. After 19,000 hours of exposure at 550 C, the material appears to be in like new condition. By limiting operating temperature to 450 C the designers are confident that SEALERs using the new alloy will be able to operate reliably for as long as 30 years. That confidence, of course, will be something that LeadCold will have to demonstrate to the satisfaction of the regulatory agency.

Czapek’s secret stainless steel (US)

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInPin on PinterestEmail this to someonePrint this page

One of the most versatile forms of stainless steel, which is also used in lower-priced watches, is SAE grade 304 (EN 1.4301), which comprises 18% chromium and 8% nickel. The most common grade used in luxury watches, however, is 316 or 316L, which in addition contains up to 2.5% molybdenum, giving it greater resistance to corrosion. As a notable exception, Rolex uses 904L stainless steel for its cases. This particular alloy also contains copper and has been favoured by Rolex since the 1980s because it takes a higher polish, even though it is more difficult to machine. 

To understand how special the stainless steel used in Czapek watches is, you first need a primer in the different types of stainless steel used in watches in general. First of all, let’s consider just what stainless steel is exactly. The term refers to a group of iron alloys that contain 10.5% chrome or more and 1.2% carbon or less. These alloys have a self-replenishing surface layer that gives a high level of protection Read more

Precision Castparts Corporation, owned by Mr. Buffett, has reached a deal to acquire Wilhelm Schulz, the world leader in piping components. It’s the second acquisition by Mr. Buffett in Germany in the past two years. U.S. billionaire Warren Buffett has purchased another mid-sized German company through a subsidiary of his holding company Berkshire Hathaway, Handelsblatt has learned. Precision Castparts Corporation, or PCC, purchased by Mr. Buffett two years ago for $37 billion (€34 billion), has reached a deal to acquire Wilhelm Schulz, the world leader in piping components. Wilhelm Schulz has 450 employees and generated €172 million in 2014. Mark Donegan, the chief executive of PCC, confirmed the deal to Handelsblatt but declined to disclose the purchase price or provide specifics about the acquisition. Mr. Donegan said PCC is looking for additional acquisitions in the aviation and energy sectors.

Japanese steelmakers are looking to survive through sales of high-end steel used mostly in automobiles (US)

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInPin on PinterestEmail this to someonePrint this page

Japanese steelmakers have focused on light, high-tension and high-grade steel used mostly in automobiles. A high degree of skill is required to produce high-grade steel, making it difficult for overseas companies to easily produce. In addition, steelmakers can expect stable demand for this type of steel from automakers that must maintain product quality in order to meet high safety standards.

Amid the current worldwide slump in the price of steel, Japanese steelmakers are looking to survive through sales of high-end steel that requires advanced technology to produce, as well as the demand for building material for the 2020 Olympic Games. Even so, prospects of China cutting back overproduction are bleak, while U.S. President Donald Trump’s “America first” policy is feared to generate harmful effects on the Japanese steel and iron industry.

Scientists compressed hydrogen under vast amounts of pressure to turn the gas into a metallic state.

US scientists have succeeded in squeezing hydrogen so intensely that it has turned into a metal, creating an entirely new material that might be used as a highly efficient electricity conductor at room temperatures. The discovery, published in the journal Science on Thursday, provides the first confirmation of a theory proposed in 1935 by physicists Hillard Bell Huntington and Eugene Wigner that hydrogen, normally a gas, could occur in a metallic state if exposed to extreme pressure. Several teams have been racing to develop metallic hydrogen,Read more

GE is substituting nickel alloy in four parts, including turbine blades with innovative Japanese composites (US)

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInPin on PinterestEmail this to someonePrint this page

Nickel alloy, a mainstay material in engine production, offers less heat resistance than silicon carbide fibers and requires air cooling. Silicon carbide fibers let planes use air more effectively for propulsion instead. The composite material costs more than nickel alloy, but producers hope that mass production will bring the cost down. Silicon carbide fibers weigh one-third that of nickel alloy and can withstand temperatures up to 2,000 C. On photo Bill Millhaem, general manager of the GE90/GE9X engine programs at GE Aviation, stands by a full-scale mock-up of the GE9X in 2015

TOKYO — Tough, lightweight silicon carbide fibers will help improve the fuel efficiency of General Electric’s aircraft engines and could spread to other uses, following in the footsteps of earlier Japanese innovations in materials engineering. Japan’s materials industry has had success with carbon fibers. Aircraft makers increasingly substitute carbon-fiber-reinforced plastics for aluminum alloys in wings andRead more
