3.4. Friction Characteristics of the NCD, MCD and boron doped NCD Coatings against Alumina Balls
The friction coefficient curves of NCD, MCD and boron-doped diamond films sliding with Al2O3 balls are shown in figure 4, figure 5 and figure 6, respectively, for a sliding speed of 8 m/s and a load of 1N, 5N and 10N, respectively. Figure 4 (a), figure 5 (a) and figure 6 (a) show the friction coefficient of NCD, MCD and BDNCD at 1 N, respectively. Figure 4 (b), figure 5 (b) and figure 6 (b) show the friction coefficient of NCD, MCD and BDNCD at 5 N. Figure 4 (c), figure 5 (c) and figure 6 (c) show the friction coefficient of NCD, MCD and BDNCD at 10 N, respectively. Figure 4 (d), figure 5 (d) and figure 6 (d) show the average friction coefficient

Among all the tested diamond films, friction tests suggest that the boron doped diamond films exhibit the lowest friction coefficient and wear rate, because of its diamond grain refinement effect. A lower friction coefficient is found in boron-doped diamond films than that of undoped ones. No variation of the total volume wear rate as a function of time was evidenced during the test since the vertical movement was negligible, a few micrometers at the end of the test. At this point, the final wear rate of the ball is indeed about 5x10-17 m3 (N/m). The wear of the diamond coated disc is too low to be measured and the wear track is just polished, as detected by SEM and confirmed by the AFM measurements. This lack of coating wear of the disc results from the short test duration due to the ball wearing more quickly. Alumina is a chemically inert ceramic compound and sliding interaction of diamond coatings against alumina material is purely mechanical. Low and stable friction coefficient values of around 0.0804 were observed with the boron doped NCD coating. The stable and low friction coefficient of the boron doped NCD coating was attributed to the chemical inertness of the mating materials and also due to the …show more content…
On the other hand, slightly high and unstable friction behavior was observed during the sliding of MCD coating against alumina ball. High run-in friction values of ~ 0.153 (average) were observed with the MCD coatings. The high run-in friction behavior of the MCD coating as compared to the NCD and BDNCD coatings was attributed to its sharp and rough surface asperities. When increasing the time, at a sliding speed of 8 m/s and a load of 10 N, the friction coefficient first increases and then decreases gradually after a time period of 5 minutes and remains constant after 12 minutes. The NCD, MCD and doped diamond films undergo similar friction coefficient advancement. Following the initial peak, the coefficient of friction transit to a lower value and at last reaches a steady state. In case of the boron-doped diamond films, the coefficient of friction also starts with a high value but falls to a low value quickly. An increasing regime then can be observed and ultimately the curve offers a reasonably steady state. The averaged

    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…

    The reason why the chips were so slow was because it had a very small surface area to volume ratio. Each granule had a high surface area to volume ratio and each powder had a very high ratio. The reason why the difference between the granules and the powder was not a lot was because each granule was pretty flat, and quite a lot of calcium carbonate molecules were accessible by the hydrochloric acid. If the granules had been less flat, the difference would be higher. The graph of the powder shows how a lot of gas produced in…

    The Thin layer chromatography plate shown in Figure 3 is used to identify compounds as well as determine their purity [9]. The crude product spot moved the same distance as the 2-NBB spot. The 4-NBB spot did not appear on the plate, indicating a low concentration of the substance. 4-NBB should diffuse farther up the TLC plate than 2-NBB due to the difference in polarity.…

    Engineering problem: I would like to use electrodeposition, because this mothed is usually used to grow copper metal interconnect film. Also the products are high quality. And the grain size for Cu does not matter the electrodeposition, because if we use this way to produce the thin film, the copper is not solid, there is no grain in copper. And from that table, we found the lowest resistivity for electrodeposition is…

    In case of no filler materials it has low matrix continuity between matrix and fibre with low capacity of absorption, which results in micro crack initiation which leads to failure so value was less, Then material D with 2% silicon carbide and activated charcoal shows 0.110 Kgm because silicon carbide has high hardness and excellent thermal shock resistance, but activated charcoal reacted with that lead to decrease its impact strength and its value is less than material E. The Test results shows that by adding mica to the material we can get better impact strength. From this we came to a conclusion that we should not add silicon carbide and activated charcoal. By adding mica to the material we can increase the impact…

    Conclusions This study reports the partial replacement of MK by non-calcined WTS in the production of geopolymer with sodium silicate from RHA. The results showed that the properties of geopolymers binders are highly dependent on the WTS content in the mixture. The binder with WTS increased the setting times, kinetics of temperature test showed low rates of geopolymerization reactions. The workability and the mechanical properties of the geopolymer mortars decreased as the WTS content in the binder increased. The compressive strengths in all curing ages were higher than the minimum required for several types of building components.…

    This is because, the flow rate is too slow but there is an increment in experimental pressure drop. The condition of Aluminium Oxide in bed unit is same for 3.0 L/min,4.0 L/min,5.0 L/min and 6.0 L/min as no any movement being observed .At 7.0L/min, the bubbles of particles is being observed and at 7.0 L/min the minimum fluidization state occurred. The minimum fluidization where the value of pressure drop is almost equal with the increase of flow rate. The value of pressure drop during minimum fluidization is 0.85 kPa. From 2.0 to 8.0 L/min, the pressure drop is increase with increasing flow rate but after minimum fluidization velocity start to be constant although the flow rate increase.…

    This strong adhesion was attributed to the existence of the diffusion layer. 3.4 Wear properties The friction coefficients of γ-TiAl and Zr-Y alloyed layer varied with sliding distance at ambient temperature and 500°C are shown in Fig. 7. It could be seen from Fig.7 that no matter at ambient temperature or 500°C, the friction coefficients of Zr-Y alloyed layer were much smaller and smoother than the γ-TiAl, which was due to the high hardness. However, the friction coefficients increased as the temperature increased27.…

    This can be explained as its original pH was quite basic. It is a salt of a strong base and therefore, it was able to raise the pH of the solution exponentially. However, it does not fully act as a base. This is shown when the product contained some solid material at the bottom of the beaker. This means that the solid compound was unable to disassociate fully.…

    This weakened effect manifests at lower annealing temperatures of about 650 °C. As the results of the static tensil test shows in Tab.3. The values of a mechanical characteristics such as yield strength and tensile strength are on the same level with conventional IF steels at that temperature. This fact is more significant in the case of higher coiling temperature. During the increase of the annealing temperature , the strengthening is more obvious.…
