Witteveen BRE Fig. He would be grateful to receive details in order that such omissions can be corrected in any future editions. Although this text is mainly concerned with building structures, similar principles are equally applicable to the problems associated with oil or gas installations or other structures such as highway bridges. This relatively low incidence of deaths resulting from collapse does not imply that structural integrity load-bearing response is unimportant, but is rather a testimony to the soundness of structural design, detailing and construction over that period.
Synthesis and Functional Properties S. Alexander, and David C. L Genelin and M. Byrne, Ivi Smid, John M. These symposia provided an international forum for scientists, engineers, and technologists to discuss and exchange state-of-the-art ideas, information, and technology on advanced methods and approaches for processing, synthesis and characterization of ceramics, glasses, and composites.
A total of papers, including 12 invited talks, were presented in the form of oral and poster presentations. The speakers represented universities, industries, and government research laboratories.
These proceedings contain contributions on various aspects of synthesis, processing and properties of ceramics, glasses, and composites that were discussed at the symposium.
Twenty two papers describing the latest developments in the areas of combustion synthesis, microwave processing, reaction forming, polymer processing, chemical vapor deposition, electrophoresis, spark plasma sintering, mechanical amorphization, thin films, composites, etc.
Each manuscript was peer-reviewed using The American Ceramic Society review process. The editors wish to extend their gratitude and appreciation to all the authors for their cooperation and contributions, to all the participants and session chairs for their time and efforts, and to all the reviewers for their useful comments and suggestions.
Financial support from The American Ceramic Society is gratefully acknowledged. Thanks are due to the staff of the meetings and publications departments of The American Ceramic Society for their invaluable assistance.
It is Ansys thermostructural simulations thesis earnest hope that this volume will serve as a valuable reference for the researchers as well as the technologists interested in innovative approaches for synthesis and processing of ceramics and composites as well as their properties.
Current efforts are directed toward synthesizing ytterbia-doped yttria Yb Y,03 for use as a polycrystalline laser host material. The process involves pumping a mixture of yttrium nitrate and ytterbium nitrate dissolved in hydrated diethylene glycol through a pressurized quartz tube contained in an S-Band waveguide driven by a 2.
Condensation reactions then form particles with ytterbium-doped yttria crystal structure. The rapid heating and cooling serve to limit the growth of the crystals so that they are on submicron and fairly uniform in size. The production of doped yttria was confirmed by x-ray diffraction.
This is commonly done in a boiling, reflux system where the glycol solution of the metal salt is heated to boiling, and the evaporating solvent is condensed and fed back into the solution.
At the elevated boiling temperature, the glycol solvent acts as a reducing agent, converting the dissolved metal salt first to a metal oxide and then to the metal. The process results first in the formation of metal atoms suspended in the glycol solvent.
These then aggregate, first into clusters and then into larger metallic particles. The process is capable of producing metallic particles in the nanometer size range nmand the particles produced are protected from oxidation or nitridation by the organic solvent and can also be further protected by organic coatings generated during the process from additives.
This process has been used for about a decade in production of nanophase powders of metals and mixtures of such metals and films or coatings of these , and a wide range of metals can be produced in this manner. The process can also be used to produce metal oxides, sulfides and selenides [4,5].
The limiting factor is the chemical energy available from the solvent vs. This makes it very difficult to obtain nanophase metals such as lithium, aluminum, yttrium, magnesium, zirconium, e. However, most of the balance of the metals in the periodic table can be produced by this process, e.
The conventional polyol process, where the processing is done with a high boiling point solvent such as ethylene glycol, heated in a reflux system by a heating mantle, is adequate for production of small quantities of experimental powders, e.
However, the process is intrinsically limited in scalability. The typical approach for increasing production rates is to set up a large number of reactors running simultaneously.
This approach raises issues of batch-to-batch and reactor-to-reactor product variability, and may never be capable of producing larger quantities for production uses at reasonable costs.
One process variation that has been adopted to overcome the limitation on process temperature resulting from boiling of the solvent is to drive the process in sealed containers heated in a microwave cavity . This has been done using adaptations of systems intended for microwave digestion.(a) The performance of the thermal actuator in vacuum is simulated using the finite element software ANSYS multiphysics, version The simulation is a coupled- field analysis involving electric, thermal and mechanical fields.
