Effect of pressure quenching on the structures and properties of borosilicate glasses: Insights from molecular dynamics simulations (open access)

Effect of pressure quenching on the structures and properties of borosilicate glasses: Insights from molecular dynamics simulations

Article describes how processes including hot compression, cold compression and subsequent annealing on the structures and properties are investigated and compared. They found that applying pressure up to 10 GPa at the glass transition temperature led to permanent densifications and a dramatic increase of elastic moduli by 90%, while thermal annealing reversed the increase and applying pressure at ambient temperature did not increase the modulus.

A novel nano-particle strengthened titanium alloy with exceptional specific strength (open access)

A novel nano-particle strengthened titanium alloy with exceptional specific strength

This article microstructurally tailors an exceptionally high-strength titanium alloy, Ti-6Al-2Sn-4Zr-6Mo (Ti6246) through friction stir processing (FSP) in order to provide enhanced weight savings and improved fuel efficiency. The specific strength attained in one of the conditions is close to 450 MPa m³/mg, which is about 22% to 85% greater than any commercially available metallic material. This novel nano particle strengthened Ti alloy is a potential replacement for many structural alloys, enabling significant weight reduction opportunities.
