4.4. Physical model of the susceptibility of hot cracking for copper GTA welding
Variations of the hot cracking susceptibility during copper GTA welding could be divided into the following five stages combining the internal factor with the external factors, as shown in Fig. 14:
Fig. 14. Schematic of the physical model for the susceptibility of hot cracking during copper GTA welding.
(I). Free crystalline region The actual line of S-L is lower compared with its corresponding theoretical line because of the influence of under cooling and low-melting eutectic. The α-Cu is crystallized from the liquids when the welding pool cools down the actual line of S-L. In this region, the size of α-Cu is smaller and the quantity of α-Cu is fewer. These smaller

Quasi-S phase region When the temperature continues to cool down from 1058 °C, the ductility of the welds increases. To illustrate, ductility at 1053 °C is 0.00298, which is higher than the corresponding ductility at 1058 °C. At 1058 °C, Δε during welding is 0.00483. The expansion velocity and susceptibility of hot cracking decrease as (Δε-P) decreases. The increase in ductility is related to the microstructure of the welds at a temperature below 1058 °C. In this temperature range, the amount of liquids among the α-Cu grains is minute, and the composition of the liquids resembles the eutectic of (Cu+Cu2O). Solidification of Cu+Cu2O eutectics at the tip of cracking hinders the propagation of crack between adjacent α-Cu grains, and in some degree leads to the increase of strength. Thus, the strength of the welds increases from 10.3 Mpa at 1058 °C to 12.2 Mpa at 1053 °C. At 1020 °C, which is close to the lower limit of the welds’ S-L range, the ductility of the welds increases to 0.00493, which is very close to the Δε (0.00508) during welding. The above result indicates that (Δε-P) is very small and cannot trigger the continuous expansion of hot cracking. The susceptibility of hot cracking declines …show more content…
13. At 300 °C, Δε declines compared with the corresponding Δε without preheating, and Pmin is exhibited when Δε300°C = 0.75Δεwithoutpreheating at the temperature lever. The variations of Δε (line II) and Pmin (line IV) intersected each other, which indicates that hot cracking inevitably occurs even if the actual deformation of the weld metal preheated to 300 °C declined in some degree. Then, the 10 mm-thick plates were welded at a preheating temperature of 300 °C. Hot cracking is located at the surface and inner part of the welds, as shown in Fig. 18. The surface crack rate is 25.1% and the section crack rate is 51.3%, which are lower than the crack rate without preheating. Δε continuously declines when the preheating temperature is 500 °C compared with the corresponding Δε when the preheating temperature is 300 °C, and Pmin is exhibited when Δε500°C = 0.12Δεwithoutpreheating at the temperature lever. The variations of Δε (line III) and Pmin (line IV) did not intersect with each other, which indicate that the actual deformation of the weld metal in BTR is smaller than the ductility of the inherent material, and the weld metal could afford the deformation. The above result satisfies equation (5) of the optimized hot cracking formation criterion. Therefore, hot cracking is inevitably inhibited and the 10 mm-thick

    So, it is observed that Schmidt number enhances the temperature. Meanwhile, the higher values of Schmidt number correspond to a reduction in the particles diffusion. So, the concentration decreases with increasing . Fig.6 illustrates that, the Prandtl number reduces the temperature. An increase of Prandtl number means a slow rate of thermal-diffusion.…

    The principal contribution to the thermal expansion arises from the angular variations manifested by the changes in the two symmetrically independent inter-tetrahedral Fe-O-P bridging angles and the correlated tilt angles. The temperature dependence of the volume strongly follows the behavior of the average θ and δ angles as a function of temperature and there is a preferential expansion along alpha. The c/a ratio decreases from 2.2356 at 294 Kelvin to 2.2069 at 969 Kelvin. The initial decrease of the c/a ratio is in fact greater than that observed for any alpha quartz isotype due to the greater average angular variations in…

    From the research, the equation of δ2 =2/3 δ0 2 [1+(1-3/4(T-Tc/T0-Tc) ^1/2] shows the changing correlation of tilt angle δ with temperature from α phase to β phase. The δ0 is the decreased tilt angle at 980K and Tc is the temperature for the second-order transition. FePO4 structural behavior is different from other α-quartz homeotypes as the tilt angle δ decreases faster than quartz. Figure 1: Crystal structure of quartz Figure 2: Crystal structure α-phase FePO4 Paragraph 2 Figure 3: The variation graphs of cell parameters and cell volumes with temperatures The α-β transition happens when the temperature increases from 294K to 980K.

    Hence, it is not unexpected that this distortion in addition to increasing temperature will lead to vibration, which finally leads to the scattering measurement. This distortion is a result of the difference in angle and length of bonds during tetrahedral tilting. This is also made more significant by the tilt angle and the temperature. However, in this case, there is no change in bond length. The bridging angles between Fe-O-P bridging angles increase and this tetrahedral tilt angles decreases when there is a transition between the α to β, which also shows an increase in temperature up to 980K.…

    At 50 ⁰C the reaction is highly negative and spontaneous. In conclusion, the transition enthalpy and entropy values tend to show a nonspontaneous reaction. The Gibbs free energy, however, shows that the reaction is spontaneous at high temperatures when the decahydrate crystals melt. The reaction proceeds to become endergonic as the temperature…

    Fig. 2 indicates that open circuit potential of Alloy 1, 2 (especially Alloy2) is more negative than that of Al. It can be seen that the potential of the Al electrode shifts in the positive direction and achieves a stable value of about -0.82 V. This is due to the formation of natural oxide layer on the Al surface which is stable in saline environments and leads to ennoblement of the…

    As the structure gradually reaches the α-β transition temperature of 980K, the tetrahedral tilt angle δ can be noticed from the table below to decrease significantly. As the bridging angles of Fe-O-P increases, we can observe important discontinuities in the structure’s parameters as it undergoes this first order transition. No thermal expansion can be observed during this…

    These average values contribute from 0.04 to 0.2 s to the splitting. However, some stations located above faults may record as much as 0.5 s splitting. At pressures greater than 200-300 MPa, corresponding to 10-15 km depth, much of the anisotropy measured in the laboratory disappears primarily due to closure of crack. [Savage.M.K (1999)] So any anisotropy below this depth can be due to other process such as preferred orientation of minerals by the ductile flow of lower crust. For teleseismic shear wave splitting, crustal rocks may contribute little to splitting because foliation planes within the crust are usually horizontal, and with vertical propagation of teleseismic phases the splitting is expected to be small.…

    2c demonstrate substantial charge transport between metallic moieties, likely via hopping, with room temperature resistivities of approximately 2 Ω·cm and 4 Ω·cm, respectively. As the temperature is lowered, the resistivity increases exponentially for both LaMo16O44 and NdMo16O44, respectively, signifying a decrease in the charge transport between Mo8O36 moieties and an overall semiconducting/insulating behavior in these materials. Below 5K, the sample resistance in the NdMo16O44 sample becomes prohibitively high and unmeasurable, whereas at these temperatures, the LaMo16O44 sample has a resistance that permits transport measurements down to a temperature of 2K. The plateau in the resistivity of LaMo16O44 at zero magnetic field and temperatures below 5K indicates a temperature-independent conductance mechanism in this material. With a magnetic field applied perpendicular to the current (but unknown orientation with respect to the crystal axes), the resistance versus temperature plot reveals a notable magnetic field effect―a local maximum in the resistance versus temperature with a peak around 6 K―that increases in magnitude with increasing magnetic field.…
