    Full Text Available Se presentan los resultados de la cianuración, de un residuo proveniente de una lixiviación de una calcina oxidada de metal blanco con alto contenido de cobre (10,6 % en la forma de ferrita cúprica, con tenores de oro y plata de 38,5 y 1085 g/Ton, respectivamente. Las extracciones de cobre en la cianuraciones son siempre más bajas que las reportadas en la literatura, pues bajo condiciones de extracción completa de oro, el cobre se disuelve tan sólo un 0,36 %, mientras que en las condiciones requeridas para una extracción del 60 % de la plata, se obtuvo una disolución cercana al 5 % de cobre. Es posible que la alta refractariedad del cobre en forma de ferrita cúprica sea la causa de la baja disolución de este metal en cianuro.

    This paper outlines some details of the conduction mechanism in SnO{sub 2}-based ceramic varistors. It is shown that the activation energy of electrical conduction E{sub s}igma (the barrier height phi) in SnO{sub 2} varistor is weakly decreased at low electric field E and strongly decreased at high fields. The strong decrease in E{sub s}igma(E) at high fields is conditioning factor of highly nonlinear current-voltage characteristic. The conduction process is thermally activated not only at low (E{sub s}igmaapprox =0.8-1eV) but also at high electric fields (E{sub s}igmaapprox =0.3-0.5eV). The 'negative capacitance' phenomenon at high fields in highly nonlinear SnO{sub 2} varistor is observed. The relation between the high nonlinearity, the high slope of E{sub s}igma(E) dependence at high fields, the 'negative capacitance' and possible generation of the minority carriers (holes) at high fields is discussed.

    Varistor is a semiconductor ceramic device characterized to have a high non-linear electrical resistance, it is used as active element of surge arresters with purpose of protecting of electro-electronics systems. Its properties are directly dependents of chemical composition and microstructural characteristics, such as grain size, porosity, twins and phases distribution. This work has the objective to characterize microstructurally a commercial varistor block of ZnO used in high voltage surge arrest and from this characterization to infer aspects about of its electrical macroscopic performance. DRX and SEM-EDS were used for microstructural analysis. The microstructural evaluation allows pointing the critical points of microstructure and, suggest relevant aspects to the improvement of commercial varistor microstructure, optimizing the electrothermal behavior of the device.

    Full Text Available Atualmente há uma crescente demanda no cenário mundial com relação ao tratamento de resíduos industriais, dentre estes o fenol e pilhas inutilizadas. Óxidos e cerâmicas a base de ferro, tais como ferritas são utilizadas como catalisadores no processo Fenton heterogêneo. Os processos de Fenton e foto-Fenton apresentam alta eficiência no tratamento de resíduos tóxicos utilizando catalisadores a base de ferro. Neste contexto foram desenvolvidas ferritas a partir de resíduos de pilhas inutilizadas. O uso destas ferritas como catalisadores é bastante interessante, uma vez que, são materiais ferromagnéticos podendo ser recuperados no final do processo utilizando campo magnético, evitando a liberação de Fe2+ e Fe3+ no efluente. Os resultados mostraram que a ferrita proveniente de pilhas inutilizadas e calcinada à temperatura de 500 °C apresentou estrutura correspondente a fase espinélio e magnéticas (M S= 37,04 emu.g-1 e como catalisador de fotodegradação atingiu-se 90% de remoção de fenol em pH 2,5 durante 2 h de irradiação.

    Full Text Available In the present work it was studied the main aspect that influences on degradation and physical-chemical properties at grainboundary region of metal oxide varistors and its consequences on microstructure and nonohmic electric properties. Based on the comprehension of the degradation aspects it was proposed some methodologies to recover the varistors nonohmic properties after being failed with long (2000 μs and short current pulses (8/20 μs. Our analysis shown that one of the cause of degradation process is related to the lowering of oxygen species amount at grain-boundary region. Therefore, it is possible to re-promote oxygen enrichment of such regions by specific thermal treatments in rich oxygen atmospheres (the best condition found in the present work was temperatures around 900°C for 2 h at an oxygen flux of 15 l/h. The proposed nonohmic properties recovering procedure appear to be valid for all kind metal oxide varistors studied and is very important from technological point of view.

    En este trabajo se estudia el fenómeno de la degradación eléctrica en varistores basados en ZnO y los factores físico-químicos que influyen en ella, así como su efecto sobre la microestructura y propiedades eléctricas.

Los análisis mostraron que una de las causas de degradación es la pérdida de especies de oxígeno en el borde de grano, permitiendo implementar un tratamiento térmico posterior en atmósfera enriquecida de oxígeno para recuperar las propiedades del varistor (temperatura de 900°C por dos horas y 15 l/h de flujo de oxígeno, fue la mejor condición. El procedimiento de recuperación propuesto es válido para todos los sistemas varistores con base en óxido metálico, sean comerciales o no y es de gran interés tecnológico, pues

    Full Text Available Thick film varistors based on the ZnO-Bi2O3-Sb2O3 system have been prepared by screen printing on dense alumina substrates. Different processing parameters like the paste viscosity, burn out and sintering cycles, green and sintered thickness, have been studied to improve the processing of ZnO-based thick film varistors. Starting powders were pre-treated in two different ways in order to control both the Bi-rich liquid phase formation and the excessive volatilization of Bi2O3 during sintering due to the high area/volume ratio of the thick films. Significant changes have been observed in the electrical properties related to the different firing schedule and selection of the starting powders.

    Se han preparado varistores basados en el sistema ZnO-Bi2O3-Sb2O3 en forma de lámina gruesa sobre sustratos de alúmina densa. Diferentes parámetros del procesamiento como la viscosidad de la pasta, los ciclos de calcinación y sinterización y el espesor en verde y sinterizado han sido estudiados para mejorar el procesamiento de los varistores basados en ZnO preparados en forma de lámina gruesa. Los polvos de partida fueron pretratados de dos formas diferentes con el objetivo de controlar la formación de la fase líquida rica en bismuto y la excesiva volatilización de Bi2O3 durante la sinterización debida a la alta relación área-volumen de las láminas gruesas. Se han observado cambios significativos en las propiedades eléctricas relacionadas con los diferentes ciclos de calcinado y con la selección de los polvos de partida.

    It is shown that an addition of bismuth oxide Bi{sub 2}O{sub 3} (0.5 mol%) to the system SnO{sub 2}–CoO–Nb{sub 2}O{sub 5}–Cr{sub 2}O{sub 3} with small amounts of Nb{sub 2}O{sub 5} and Cr{sub 2}O{sub 3} (0.05 mol%) leads to a significant decrease in the electric field where a strong nonlinearity of the current–voltage characteristic takes place. This effect facilitates manufacture of ceramic materials for low voltage varistors with a relatively high nonlinearity coefficient of 15–20 and an electric field of 430−580Vcm{sup −1} (at a sintering temperature of 1300 °C) and, respectively, 11 and 287Vcm{sup −1} (at 1400 °C). The obtained experimental data indicate that ceramic materials in the system SnO{sub 2}–CoO–Nb{sub 2}O{sub 5}–Cr{sub 2}O{sub 3}–Bi{sub 2}O{sub 3} exhibit the typical structure of varistor ceramics with conductive grains of tin dioxide (SnO{sub 2}) and highly resistive grain boundaries. In particular, the capacitance at 10 Hz and high dc bias becomes negative as in other SnO{sub 2} and ZnO varistors.

    In this paper, the centre of electrode is suggested for heat conduction. Therefore, the specific reflow soldering process is needed. The comparison of temperature difference among the different areas of ZnO varistors is analyzed. With the nominal surge current, thermal behavior is analyzed. The operation point of temperature for disconnection is proposed. Accordingly, the thermal runaway-preventing ZnO varistors were covered with a fusible alloy, i.e., a thermal fuse, in the process of manufacture, which is expected to ensure there the liability of being resistant to lightning discharge and to ensure stability against thermal runaway in the failure mode. Additionally, it is expected to reduce much more limit voltage than the existing products to which the fuse was separately applied. The thermal runaway-preventing ZnO varistor of the surge protection devices can be widely used as part of the protection provisions of lightning discharge and surge protection demanded in connection with power IT about Green Growth which is nowadays becoming the buzzword in the electric power industry.

  1. Sintering behavior of doped ZnO powders for high field varistors

    Ghirlanda, M.

    1990-08-01

    The sintering of ZnO varistor precursor powders, doped with Co, Mn and different concentrations of Bi and Al, is investigated and discussed in relation with sintering models. One purpose of the present study is to provide information valuable for the fabrication of high field varistors. As the fundamental parameter of these electronic components is the breakdown voltage per unit of thickness, which is determined by the number of grain boundaries per linear dimension, the grain size and the sintered density are crucial variables, and the sintering is a central step in the manufacturing of such varistors. Sintering experiments performed at constant heating rate in a loading dilatometer provide data on the densification and creep of the compacted powders. Another goal of the present study is to provide an experimental basis for the interpretation of the evolution of the ratio between densification rate and creep rate in terms of competition between densification and microstructure coarsening. This is accomplished by taking advantage of the variety of sintering behaviors that takes place in the system ZnO-Bi-Al: the comparison of these behaviors allows us to correlate the macroscopic sintering parameters to the evolution of the microstructure. It results that, while in non-doped powders densification and coarsening develop in a balanced way, resulting in the constancy of the ratio between densification rate and creep rate, the effect of the dopants on the sintering kinetics alters such a balance, leading this ratio to vary. 17 figs.

Different milling conditions has been employed varying ball/powder mass ratio. After low milling time a strong reduction on crystallite size has been detected while the strain lattice increase slowly. The presence of α-Fe2O3 was also observed at different milling time, depending on milling conditions, by means of X-Ray diffraction experiments. Magnetic transition temperatures were evaluated using a thermogravimetric analyser, equipped with a small permanent magnet. An attempt of dependence of magnetic properties with crystallite size has been established.La ferrita MgFe2O4, en forma de polvo y previamente preparada por reacción en estado sólido, se ha sometido a un proceso de molienda mecánica en atmósfera de aire usando un molino centrífugo.

La variación del tamaño de dominio cristalino o de cristalita y lamicrodeformaciones de red a escala de celda unidad se evaluaron mediante difracción de rayos-X de polvo. Para bajos tiempos de molienda se observó una acusada disminución del tamaño de dominio cristalino, mientras que las microdeformaciones de la red experimentaron un ligero aumento. Así mismo, a partir de determinados tiempos de molienda, se detectó la presencia de α-Fe2O3. Las temperaturas de transición magnética fueron evaluadas a partir de un analizador termogravimétrico equipado con un pequeño imán permanente y se estableció un correlación entre la temperatura de Curie y el tamaño de dominio cristalino.

    Highlights: • A new method to prepare highly nonlinear zinc oxide film varistors was proposed. • Dependence of hot-dipping temperature on varistor performance was established. • Optimum varistors were obtained. • Electrical conducting and mechanism of the film varistors were clarified. - Abstract: Highly nonlinear varistors were fabricated by hot-dipping oxygen-deficient zinc oxide (ZnO{sub 1−x}, x < 1) thin films in Bi{sub 2}O{sub 3}. The ZnO{sub 1−x} films were deposited on conducting silicon chips by radio frequency magnetron sputtering of a sintered zinc oxide ceramic target. Then the films were hot-dipped at a temperature from 200 to 600 °C in Bi{sub 2}O{sub 3}. With the increase in hot-dipping temperature, the nonlinear coefficient (α) of the film varistors increases first and then decreases, and the leakage current (I{sub L}) correspondingly decreases initially and then increases, owing mainly to the formation and destroying of complete ZnO{sub 1−x}/Bi{sub 2}O{sub 3} grain boundaries and the roundness change of the ZnO{sub 1−x} grains; and the varistor voltage (E{sub 1mA}) decreases from 0.0268 to 0.0137 V/nm, due to the decreased number of effective grain boundaries in the materials. The film varistors prepared by hot-dipping at 400 °C exhibit the optimum nonlinear properties with the highest α = 15.1, lowest I{sub L} = 0.0223 mA/cm{sup 2}, and E{sub 1mA} = 0.0176 V/nm. Such nanoscaled film varistors will be very promising in electrical/electronic devices working in low-voltage.

    TiO{sub 2}-based varistor materials with SrO dopants were prepared by the mechanical mixed oxides synthesis technique using conventional sintering at 1400 °C. I−V and microstructural characterization were performed. The composition range of 0.50–2.00 mol % SrO was studied and compared to pure TiO{sub 2}. Experimental evidence shows that small amounts of SrO improve the nonlinear properties of the samples significantly. Optimal varistor characteristics α = 5.50 and E{sub b} = 345 V/cm, were obtained with 1.00 mol % SrO-doped TiO{sub 2}. SrO in larger amounts causes the formation of precipitates of the SrTiO{sub 3} layer on the microstructure, being deleterious to the electrical properties. Therefore, dopants such as SrO or TiO{sub 2} play a special role in the morphology of the grain boundary and nonlinear response of these materials. An atomic defect model based on the double barrier Schottky type can be adopted to explain the formation of electrical barriers in TiO{sub 2} grain boundaries. - Highlights: • Training an effective potential barrier in the grain boundary, measured by electrical measurements on AC and DC. • Microstructure versus electrical properties. • Good properties getting varistor using a single dopant, forming a varistor binary system based on TiO{sub 2}.

    Full Text Available Prolonged exposure of zinc oxide varistors to the electrical load leads to current-voltage characteristics (CVC deformation, which is associated with a change in the height and width of the intergranular barriers, which are main structural element of the varistors. Polarization phenomena in zinc oxide ceramics are studied in a number of works, but those are mainly limited to the study of the physics of the CVC deformation process and to determining the parameters of localized electronic states involved in this process. This paper presents the results on the simulation of the deformation of pulse CVC of a separate intergranular potential barrier at transient polarization/depolarization, associated with recharging of surface electronic states (SES, which cause this barrier. It is found that at high density of SES their degree of electron filling is small and the effect of DC voltage leads to a shift of pulse current-voltage characteristics into the region of small currents. Conversely, the low density SES are almost completely filled with electrons, and after crystallite polarization CVC is shifted to high currents. Experimental studies have confirmed the possibility of applying the discovered laws to ceramic varistor structures. The proposed model allows interpreting the «anomalous» effects (such as increase in the classification voltage and reduction of active losses power observed during the varistors accelerated aging test.

    Tin dioxide based SnO{sub 2}-Bi{sub 2}O{sub 3}-Co{sub 3}O{sub 4}-Nb{sub 2}O{sub 5}-Cr{sub 2}O{sub 3} ceramic device with combined varistor and humidity-sensitive properties is studied. This varistor-sensor has high humidity sensitivity coefficient of about 420 at low electric field and high non-linearity coefficient of about 50 at electric field 3500 V cm{sup -1}. Current-voltage characteristics of the samples with separate electrodes for the central and the peripheral parts are studied in air with different relative humidity. It is shown that current through the peripheral part of a sample is increased much stronger than through the central part. The observed increase of low-field current on relative humidity is explained by the decrease of the barrier height. The estimations of the lowering of the barrier height in a humid air is performed using the suggested models.

    Full Text Available ZnO-Pr6O11-CoO-Cr2O3-based ceramic varistors doped with 0 - 2.0 mol.% ZrO2 were fabricated via conventional ceramic processing by sintering at 1300oC for 2 h. X-ray diffraction results indicate that the doped ZrO2 reacted with praseodymium oxides during sintering, resulting in Pr2Zr2O7 phase. Scanning electron microscopy analysis revealed that after the addition of ZrO2, the growth of ZnO grains was inhibited due to the formation of Pr2Zr2O7. When the amount was less than 0.5 mol.%, ZrO2 doping was beneficial for increasing the varistor nonlinear exponent. The varistor voltage increased with increasing ZrO2 contents in the ceramics, but the leakage current also increased with it. In this work, the sample doped with 0.5 mol.% ZrO2 presented the highest nonlinear exponent (17, and its varistor voltage was 623 V mm-1. The sample with 2.0 mol.% ZrO2 presented the highest varistor voltage (1490 V mm-1, and its nonlinear exponent was 10. The obtained varistor would be very promising in super-high-voltage power transmission systems.

    Chemically prepared zinc oxide powders are fabricated for the production of high aspect ratio varistor components. Colloidal processing in water was performed to reduce agglomerates to primary particles, form a high solids loading slurry, and prevent dopant migration. The milled and dispersed powder exhibited a viscoelastic to elastic behavioral transition at a volume loading of 43-46%. The origin of this transition was studied using acoustic spectroscopy, zeta potential measurements and oscillatory rheology. The phenomenon occurs due to a volume fraction solids dependent reduction in the zeta potential of the solid phase. It is postulated to result from divalent ion binding within the polyelectrolyte dispersant chain, and was mitigated using a polyethylene glycol plasticizing additive. Chemically prepared zinc oxide powders were processed for the production of high aspect ratio varistor components. Near net shape casting methods including slip casting and agarose gelcasting were evaluated for effectiveness in achieving a uniform green microstructure achieving density values near the theoretical maximum during sintering. The structure of the green parts was examined by mercury porisimetry. Agarose gelcasting produced green parts with low solids loading values and did not achieve high fired density. Isopressing the agarose cast parts after drying raised the fired density to greater than 95%, but the parts exhibited catastrophic shorting during electrical testing. Slip casting produced high green density parts, which exhibited high fired density values. The electrical characteristics of slip cast parts are comparable with dry pressed powder compacts. Alternative methods for near net shape forming of ceramic dispersions were investigated for use with the chemically prepared ZnO material. Recommendations for further investigation to achieve a viable production process are presented.

    Varistor is a semiconductor device, used in the protection of electrical systems, characterized to have a high no-linear electric resistance. Its properties are directly dependents of its chemical composition and microstructural characteristics. In this work were analyzed microstructural and electrical characteristics of a ZnO-based varistor doped with rare earth oxide, with chemical composition (mol%) 98,5.ZnO - 0,3.Pr{sub 6}O{sub 11} - 0,2.Dy{sub 2}O{sub 3} - 0,9.Co{sub 2}O{sub 3} - 0,1.Cr{sub 2}O{sub 3}. X-ray diffraction for phase characterization, scanning electron microscopy and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy were used for microstructural analysis. Measurement of average grain size and electrical and dielectric characteristics complete the characterization. The results show the formation of biphasic microstructure and with high densification, presenting relevant varistors characteristics but that would need improvements.(author)

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available The effects of rare-earth doping and low-temperature sintering on electrical properties of ZnO varistors were investigated. The potential gradient (E1mA of the ZnO varistors increased significantly to 2247.2 V/mm after doping 0.08 mol% of Y2O3 and sintering at 800°C for 2 h. The notable decrease of the grain size with the given experimental conditions was the origin for the increase in E1mA. During the process of high-temperature sintering, both the oxygen at the grain boundary interface and the neutralisation of the ions on the depletion layer were directly reduced, which caused the weight loss and the internal derangement of double Schottky barriers.

    High-performance ZnO-Pr6O11 thin-film varistors were fabricated simply by hot-dipping oxygen-deficient zinc oxide thin films in Pr6O11 powder. The films had a composition of ZnO0.81 and a thickness of about 200 nm, which were deposited by radio frequency magnetron sputtering a sintered zinc oxide ceramic target. Special attention was paid on the temperature dependence of the varistors. In 50 min with hot-dipping temperature increased from 300-700 °C, the nonlinear coefficient (α) of the varistors increased, but with higher temperature it decreased again. Correspondingly, the leakage current (IL) decreased first and then increased, owing mainly to the formation and destroying of complete zinc oxide/Pr6O11 grain boundaries. The breakdown field (E1mA) decreased monotonously from 0.02217 to 0.01623 V/nm with increasing temperature (300-800 °C), due to the decreased number of effective grain boundaries in the varistors. The varistors prepared at 700 °C exhibited the optimum nonlinear properties with the highest α = 39.29, lowest IL = 0.02736 mA/cm(2), and E1mA = 0.01757 V/nm. And after charge-discharge at room temperature for 1000 times, heating at 100 or 250 °C for up to 100 h, or applying at up to 250 °C, the varistors still performed well. Such nanoscaled thin-film varistors will be very promising in electrical/electronic devices working at low voltage.

    Full Text Available Ceramic materials based on the system ZnO-BaO show a great potential for varistor applications. However, the BaO rich phase located at the grain boundaries shows high solubility in water which causes severe damage of the materials. In order to overcome this problem, doping with P2O5 to form BaZn2(PO42 and Zn3(PO42 has been studied. The resistance of these materials to degradation by moisture has been evaluated by lixiviation experiments. Sintering has been followed by means of dilatometric technique and microstructure was analysed by Scanning Electron Microscopy, SEM. The electrical properties of these materials evidence a varistor behaviour similar to that observed for materials in the system ZnO-BaO.Los materiales basados en el sistema ZnO-BaO presentan unas propiedades de gran interés para su aplicación como varistores. Sin embargo, la fase rica en BaO localizada en el borde de grano exhibe una solubilidad elevada en agua que origina una rápida degradación del material.

La estabilidad de estos nuevos materiales frente a la humedad se ha evaluado mediante ensayos de lixiviación. La sinterización se ha seguido mediante dilatometría y la microestructura de los materiales sinterizados se ha analizado por Microscopía Electrónica de Barrido, MEB.

    Monodispersed ZnO composite microspheres were successfully prepared by a facile ultrasound irradiation method. Then, the uniform core-shell structured composites were synthesized through the hydrolysis of tetraethyl orthosilicate on the surface of the ZnO composite microspheres. Microstructural studies of the as-obtained powders were carried out using the techniques of the x-ray powder diffraction, field emission scanning electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy with energy dispersive x-ray spectroscopy. The results show that the pink ZnO composite powders as the core were spherical structures with the size of approximately 100 nm, and the SiO2 shell was fully coated on the surface of the core. On the basis of these results, the effect of SiO2 content on the thickness of the synthesized composites and microstructure, as well as the electrical properties of the ZnO varistors sintered in air at 1150°C for 2 h, were fully studied. In particular, the ZnO varistor prepared with the appropriate amount of the SiO2 coating (˜40 nm) leads to a superior electrical performance with the high breakdown voltage of 418 V mm-1 and an excellent nonlinear coefficient of 70.7, compared with the varistors obtained without the SiO2 coating. The high performance is attributed to the smaller and more homogeneous ZnO grains obtained via the SiO2 coating.

    Al doping effect on electrical and dielectric aging behavior against impulse surge in the ZPCCYA-based varistors was investigated. The clamp ratio (K) decreased in accordance with increasing Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} content up to 0.005 mol%. A further increase in Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} doping level caused K to increase. The K value at a surge current of 5 A and 10 A for the varistor doped with 0.005 mol% Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} exhibited 1.49 and 1.57, respectively. Furthermore, the K value at a higher surge current of 1200 A was 2.44 for the varistors doped with 0.005 mol% and 0.01 mol% Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}. The best electrical and dielectric stability against impulse surge current of 1200 A was obtained at 0.01 mol% Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}, where %{Delta}E{sub 1mA/cm}{sup 2} = -1.0%, %{Delta}{alpha} = 0%, %{Delta}J{sub L} = -3.9%, %{Delta}{epsilon}'{sub APP} = +1.4%, and %{Delta} tan {delta} = -10.5%. Conclusively, Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} content was optimized at 0.01 mol% in terms of the surge absorption capability.

    Full Text Available Metal oxide varistors (MOVs are a type of resistor with significantly nonlinear current-voltage characteristics commonly used in power lines to protect against overvoltages. If a proper recycling plan is developed MOVs can be an excellent source of secondary zinc because they contain over 90 weight percent zinc oxide. The oxides of antimony, bismuth, and to a lesser degree cobalt, manganese, and nickel are also present in varistors. Characterization of the MOV showed that cobalt, nickel, and manganese were not present in the varistor material at concentrations greater than one weight percent. This investigation determined whether a pH selective dissolution (leaching process can be utilized as a starting point for hydrometallurgical recycling of the zinc in MOVs. This investigation showed it was possible to selectively leach zinc from the MOV without coleaching of bismuth and antimony by selecting a suitable pH, mainly higher than 3 for acids investigated. It was not possible to leach zinc without coleaching of manganese, cobalt, and nickel. It can be concluded from results obtained with the acids used, acetic, hydrochloric, nitric, and sulfuric, that sulfate leaching produced the most desirable results with respect to zinc leaching and it is also used extensively in industrial zinc production.

    Highly nonlinear varistors were fabricated by hot-dipping oxygen-deficient zinc oxide (ZnO1-x, x < 1) thin films in Bi2O3. The ZnO1-x films were deposited on conducting silicon chips by radio frequency magnetron sputtering of a sintered zinc oxide ceramic target. Then the films were hot-dipped at a temperature from 200 to 600 °C in Bi2O3. With the increase in hot-dipping temperature, the nonlinear coefficient (α) of the film varistors increases first and then decreases, and the leakage current (IL) correspondingly decreases initially and then increases, owing mainly to the formation and destroying of complete ZnO1-x/Bi2O3 grain boundaries and the roundness change of the ZnO1-x grains; and the varistor voltage (E1mA) decreases from 0.0268 to 0.0137 V/nm, due to the decreased number of effective grain boundaries in the materials. The film varistors prepared by hot-dipping at 400 °C exhibit the optimum nonlinear properties with the highest α = 15.1, lowest IL = 0.0223 mA/cm2, and E1mA = 0.0176 V/nm. Such nanoscaled film varistors will be very promising in electrical/electronic devices working in low-voltage.

    2012-04-01

    Full Text Available High demands on low-voltage electronics have increased the need for zinc oxide (ZnO varistors with fast response, highly non-linear current-voltage characteristics and energy absorption capabilities at low breakdown voltage. However, trade-off between breakdown voltage and grain size poses a critical bottle-neck in the production of low-voltage varistors. The present study highlights the synthesis mechanism for obtaining praseodymium oxide (Pr6O11 based ZnO varistor ceramics having breakdown voltages of 2.8 to 13.3 V/mm through employment of direct modified citrate gel coating technique. Precursor powder and its ceramics were examined by means of TG/DTG, FTIR, XRD and FESEM analyses. The electrical properties as a function of Pr6O11 addition were analyzed on the basis of I-V characteristic measurement. The breakdown voltage could be adjusted from 0.01 to 0.06 V per grain boundary by controlling the amount of Pr6O11 from 0.2 to 0.8 mol%, without alteration of the grain size. The non-linearity coefficient, α, varied from 3.0 to 3.5 and the barrier height ranged from 0.56 to 0.64 eV. Breakdown voltage and α lowering with increasing Pr6O11 content were associated to reduction in the barrier height caused by variation in O vacancies at grain boundary.

    Full Text Available The disc-shape ZnO+0.01Sb2O3 samples were prepared by standard ceramic techniques. The sample indicates white colour and was characterized by XRD. The prepared sample is varistor which shows breakdown field strength of 87.18 V/mm and non-linearity exponent (α of 38.179. It is worth noting that the high electric field strength of 5128.2 V/mm causes sample resistance changing. Sample resistance before and after poling were 189.13 kΩ and 6.516 kΩ, respectively.

    The sintering behavior of Sandia chem-prep high field varistor materials was studied using techniques including in situ shrinkage measurements, optical and scanning electron microscopy and x-ray diffraction. A thorough literature review of phase behavior, sintering and microstructure in Bi{sub 2}O{sub 3}-ZnO varistor systems is included. The effects of Bi{sub 2}O{sub 3} content (from 0.25 to 0.56 mol%) and of sodium doping level (0 to 600 ppm) on the isothermal densification kinetics was determined between 650 and 825 C. At {ge} 750 C samples with {ge}0.41 mol% Bi{sub 2}O{sub 3} have very similar densification kinetics, whereas samples with {le}0.33 mol% begin to densify only after a period of hours at low temperatures. The effect of the sodium content was greatest at {approx}700 C for standard 0.56 mol% Bi{sub 2}O{sub 3} and was greater in samples with 0.30 mol% Bi{sub 2}O{sub 3} than for those with 0.56 mol%. Sintering experiments on samples of differing size and shape found that densification decreases and mass loss increases with increasing surface area to volume ratio. However, these two effects have different causes: the enhancement in densification as samples increase in size appears to be caused by a low oxygen internal atmosphere that develops whereas the mass loss is due to the evaporation of bismuth oxide. In situ XRD experiments showed that the bismuth is initially present as an oxycarbonate that transforms to metastable {beta}-Bi{sub 2}O{sub 3} by 400 C. At {approx}650 C, coincident with the onset of densification, the cubic binary phase, Bi{sub 38}ZnO{sub 58} forms and remains stable to >800 C, indicating that a eutectic liquid does not form during normal varistor sintering ({approx}730 C). Finally, the formation and morphology of bismuth oxide phase regions that form on the varistors surfaces during slow cooling were studied.

    Full Text Available A sinterização por micro-ondas é uma técnica que oferece enorme potencial para a fabricação de diversos materiais cerâmicos com microestruturas cerâmicas diferenciadas. Este trabalho teve por objetivo sinterizar cerâmicas de ferrita de níquel (NiFe2O4 em forno de micro-ondas, visando controle de crescimento de grão e alta densificação. Para realizar esta investigação, foi utilizado o processo de síntese por Pechini para a preparação do pó das ferritas de níquel. Amostras desse material foram sinterizadas em forno convencional e de micro-ondas. A caracterização foi feita por difração de raios X, microscopia eletrônica de varredura, determinação de densidade aparente e obtenção das curvas de histerese magnética. A sinterização da ferrita de níquel por micro-ondas levou apenas 10% do tempo gasto da sinterização convencional. As amostras apresentaram menor tamanho de grão, e densidade e magnetização de saturação semelhantes às obtidas pela sinterização convencional, mostrando o alto potencial de aplicação da técnica de micro-ondas para o processamento desses materiais.

    In this work is studied the electrothermal behavior of varistor ceramic blocks used in high voltage surge arresters of transmission and distribution lines, relating this behavior to microstructural characteristics of the studied varistor ceramics. We studied blocks of zinc oxide varistors with nominal voltage of 4.0 kV, by and voltage-capacitance characterization curves, reference voltage test, impulse residual voltage, polarization tests and induced degradation tests. On the other hand, the microstructural characterization was made by scanning electron microscopy and energy-dispersive spectroscopy. The obtained results allow to correlate the behavior of the resistive component of the leakage current with the microstructural characteristics of the studied varistors, specially in pre-breakdown region.

    Full Text Available O comportamento reológico de suspensões cerâmicas apresenta forte dependência do pH, quantidade de dispersante e concentração de sólidos. Quando dispersões são compostas por vários óxidos diferentes, o comportamento reológico pode ser afetado de maneira diferente da simples combinação dos materiais individuais. Neste trabalho, o método de viscosimetria rotacional com geometria de cilíndricos concêntricos foi utilizado para avaliar a estabilidade de suspensões cerâmicas de um sistema varistor à base de ZnO (aditivos: Bi2O3, Sb2O3, Co3O4, Mn2O3, NiO, Cr2O3. A partir do comportamento reológico, foi possível estabelecer condições otimizadas de pH e quantidade de dispersante 9,0 e 1,70 mg/g respectivamente. Com estas condições foi determinado o limite de concentração de sólido de 43,4%, que é pequeno e deve estar provavelmente ligado ao fator de empacotamento prejudicado pela estreita distribuição granulométrica do ZnO.Rheological properties of ceramic suspensions show strong dependence on pH, amount of dispersant and solid concentration. Most of the time, the suspensions are composed of different oxides and the rheological behavior tends to be more complex than the simple sum of single materials. In a previous work, the stability of ZnO-based varistor dispersion was analyzed regarding the physical-chemistry of the system. In this work, the method of rotational viscosimeter was used to evaluate the stability of ceramic suspensions of a ZnO-based varistor system containing Bi2O3, Sb2O3, Co3O4, Mn2O3, NiO, and Cr2O3. Using this stability information, it was possible to establish optimized conditions of pH and amount of dispersant 9.0 and 1.70/ mg/g, respectively. The limit of solid concentration was determined by a simple rheological model as 43.4%. The low packing value was probably due to the sharp grain size distribution of the ZnO powder which reduced the particle packing density.

  13. INFLUENCE OF RARE-EARTH DOPING ON THE ELECTRICAL PROPERTIES OF HIGH VOLTAGE GRADIENT ZnO VARISTORS

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    LEI KE

    2013-03-01

    Full Text Available The influence of rare-earth doping on the electrical properties of ZnO varistors was investigated. In a lower doping region, the electrical properties were greatly improved with the increase of rare-earth contents. The highest voltage gradient value of 1968.0 V/mm was obtained with a rare-earth concentration of 0.06 mol. %. The microstructure of samples with different amounts of rare-earth oxides was examined and the notable decrease of grain size was identified as the origin for the increased voltage gradient. The doped rare-earth oxides dissolved at the grain boundaries and the excessive doping reduced the voltage across the single grain/grain boundary from 2.72 V to 0.91 V. The poor electrical properties in a higher doping region resulted from the degeneration of grain boundaries and the decrease of block density.

    In this work, the effect of calcium (Ca), barium (Ba) and strontium (Sr) additions on the microstructure and electrical properties of SnO{sub 2}-Co{sub 3}O{sub 4}-Sb{sub 2}O{sub 5} ceramic varistors was investigated. It was found that the calcium addition promotes densification and grain growth. Ceramics with calcium addition exhibit the lowest electric field at a fixed current density (10{sup −3} A cm{sup −2}). The addition of strontium shows a similar effect on microstructure and current-voltage characteristics. However, barium addition causes porosity increase, grain size reduction, changes in the grain morphology (from approximately equiaxed to elongated grains) and the electric field at a fixed current density showed almost no change. Consequently, Ba-containing SnO{sub 2}-based ceramics cannot be considered as attractive candidates for low-voltage varistors. - Highlights: • The calcium and Strontium addition promotes densification and grain growth. • Barium addition causes porosity increase, grain size reduction and changes in the grain morphology. • Ceramics with calcium addition exhibit the lowest electric field. • Ceramics with calcium addition can be considered as promising materials for low-voltage varistors.

    Full Text Available A study of the magnetization reversal process at 300 K in a co-precipitated cobalt ferrite material was carried out. The evolution of the reversible Mrev and irreversible Mirr magnetization components were determined by measuring sets of recoil curves from different points on the initial magnetization curve and mayor demagnetization curve (Isothermal Remanent Magnetization and Direct Current Demagnetization Methods. The Mrev(MirrHi curves at constant Hi < Hc , where Hc is the coercivity of the sample, exhibit a well-defined maximum (minimum for the initial magnetization (demagnetization process. This is characteristic of an increasing in the total domain wall area in the material during the processes of magnetization and demagnetization. This behavior for Mrev and the shape of the η= (∂Mrev/∂MirrHi function, suggest that domain wall movement subject to pinning is the dominant mechanism for the reversal magnetization process in this material.

    Full Text Available Using the chemical coprecipitation method a precursor formed by iron and barium hidroxides and carbonates was obtained. For calcination temperatures higher than 730ºC this precursor transforms into barium ferrite. Calcining the precursor during 2 hours a maximum magnetization of 59.1 emu/g for 925ºC was obtained. Using the microemulsion method a fine precursor formed by iron and barium hidroxides and carbonates was obtained. For calcination temperatures higher than 760ºC this precursor transforms into barium ferrite. Calcining the precursor during 12 hours a maximum magnetization of 60.5 emu/g for 925ºC was obtained. For the barium ferrite obtained by microemulsion the intrinsic coercitivity was 20% lower than the intrinsic coercitivity of the barium ferrite obtained by chemical coprecipitation. This lower intrinsic coercivity should favor the microemulsion method for producing barium ferrite particles used as perpendicular magnetic recording medium.

    Typically Titanium oxide is added to the formulation of Bi{sub 2}O{sub 3}-doped ZnO based varistors to enhance the growth of ZnO grains, thus allowing their application in low voltage devices. However its incorporation to formulation based on the ZnOBi {sub 2}O{sub 3}-Sb{sub 2}O{sub 3} (ZBS system), characteristic of high voltage applications has not been analyzed jet. In this contribution it has been verified that far from promoting the ZnO grain growth, the incorporation of TiO{sub 2} to varistor formulations based on this ZBS ternary system leads to a better control of the varistor microstructure, which in turns causes an appreciable improvement of its electrical response.

    Full Text Available During the sintering process of ZnO-Bi2O3-Sb2O3 based varistors, different reactions take place. The formation of the Zn7Sb2O12 spinel phase occurs between 900 and 1100ºC depending on the composition of the material. The spinel phase acts as ZnO grain growth inhibitor and its distribution on the whole material as a secondary phase in the matrix of ZnO grains determines the kinetics of grain growth. However, it is difficult to control the nucleation and growth of this phase, and this concerns on the final grain size and consequently on the characteristics of the varistor device. The present study has focused on the incorporation of the previously synthesized spinel phase. Scanning Electronic Microscopy analysis of sintered samples reveals a better control of microstructure in those materials with the synthesized spinel phase. The electrical behaviour of these materials agrees with the microstructural features and a greater reproducibility is observed.Una de las reacciones que tiene lugar durante la sinterización de varistores cerámicos basados en el sistema ZnO-Bi2O3-Sb2O3 es la formación de la fase Zn7Sb2O12, de estructura tipo espinela, que ocurre en el intervalo de temperaturas comprendido entre 900 y 1100ºC, dependiendo de la composición específica del material. Esta fase es la responsable del control del crecimiento de grano y su distribución en el seno del material como una segunda fase dispersa en la matriz mayoritaria de granos de ZnO determinará la cinética del crecimiento de los granos. Sin embargo, el proceso de nucleación y crecimiento de esta fase resulta difícil de controlar cuantitativamente, aspecto que se refleja en las características finales del dispositivo varistor obtenido.

    Full Text Available The influence of the dopant Pr6O11 was investigated with regard to the electrical and microstructural properties of the system (98.95-x%SnO2.1.0%CoO.0.05%Ta2O5.x%Pr6O11, where x = 0.05%, 0.10%, 0.30% and 0.50% in mol. Pr6O11 doping modifies the electrical behavior of the ceramics. The electrical parameters were: α = 8.0, EB = 319 V cm-1 and Vb = 0.66 V barrier-1 for the system without Pr6O11 and α = 17.0, EB = 853 V cm-1 and Vb = 1.15 V barrier-1 with the addition of 0.10% in mol Pr6O11. The system with 0.05% in mol Pr6O11 had the same non-linearity coefficient α as the system with 0.10% in mol. However, breakdown electrical field and voltage per barrier rates were lower (EB = 708 V cm-1 and Vb = 0.98 V barrier-1. The low rates in the breakdown electrical field enabled the varistor systems under study to be used in protection systems for low-voltage energy grids. In the case of Pr6O11 concentrations above 0.10% in mol, the presence of the dopant became deleterious to the varistor’s electrical characteristics. This effect was due to an increase in praseodymium stannate (Pr2Sn2O7 secondary phase. The crystalline phase coupled to the cassiterite (SnO2 phase was found with XRD and SEM/EDS and quantified by Rietveld’s refining method.

    In this study we focused on the effect of Fe2O3 on structural properties of ZnO-V2O5 based varistor. ZnO ceramics doped with 3 mol% of V2O5 as a varistor-forming oxide and 0 to 0.5 mol% Fe2O3 were prepared by conventional powder processing route using high energy ball mill and sintered at 900°C for 4 h. It was observed that the grain growth behavior in ZnO-V2O5 system was strongly influenced by the presence of Fe2O3. Moreover, due to doping of V2O5 lower temperatures about 900°C could be used for sintering. The microstructure of the samples consists of ZnO grains as a main phase and Zn3(VO4)2 as a secondary phase. Structural properties of samples have been investigated by using lattice parameter calculated from rietveld refinements. Absence of any impure element or phase is confirmed by XRD and EDX data. XRD data reveals that low content of iron oxide did not contribute in phase formation but only change the lattice parameters and increased the grain size of sample.

    2000-01-01

    Full Text Available A durabilidade do varistor de ZnO está relacionada com suas características elétricas, microestruturais, térmicas e com o fenômeno de transporte de massa nos contornos de grão durante o processo de operação do varistor. O estado de polarização nos contornos de grão está relacionado com a difusão do zinco, do oxigênio e dos dopantes durante a aplicação do potencial elétrico e/ou da temperatura. Quando o potencial elétrico é retirado e o estado de polarização não recupera seu estado natural, significa que o dispositivo adquire os piores parâmetros e o varistor sofre degradação, comprometendo sua durabilidade. Neste trabalho, foi simulada a difusão do zinco intersticial e das vacâncias de oxigênio em ZnO. Foi também simulada a durabilidade do varistor, através do planejamento fatorial dos parâmetros elétricos, térmicos e geométricos que caracterizam o dispositivo. Através destes resultados, verificou-se que a difusão do zinco intersticial controla principalmente as propriedades elétricas. Observou-se, também, que quando aumenta a temperatura e a queda de tensão registrada em 0,5 mA/cm², a durabilidade do varistor fica comprometida.

    In fabrication of ZnO-based low voltage varistor, Bi2O3 and TiO2 have been used as former and grain growth enhancer factors respectively. Therefore, the molar ratio of the factors is quit important in the fabrication. In this paper, modeling and optimization of Bi2O3 and TiO2 was carried out by response surface methodology to achieve maximized electrical properties. The fabrication was planned by central composite design using two variables and one response. To obtain actual responses, the design was performed in laboratory by the conventional methods of ceramics fabrication. The actual responses were fitted into a valid second order algebraic polynomial equation. Then the quadratic model was suggested by response surface methodology. The model was validated by analysis of variance which provided several evidences such as high F-value (153.6), very low P-value (<0.0001), adjusted R-squared (0.985) and predicted R-squared (0.947). Moreover, the lack of fit was not significant which means the model was significant. The model tracked the optimum of the additives in the design by using three dimension surface plots. In the optimum condition, the molars ratio of Bi2O3 and TiO2 were obtained in a surface area around 1.25 point that maximized the nonlinear coefficient around 20 point. Moreover, the model predicted the optimum amount of the additives in desirable condition. In this case, the condition included minimum standard error (0.35) and maximum nonlinearity (20.03), while molar ratio of Bi2O3 (1.24 mol%) and TiO2 (1.27 mol%) was in range. The condition as a solution was tested by further experiments for confirmation. As the experimental results showed, the obtained value of the non-linearity, 21.6, was quite close to the predicted model. Response surface methodology has been successful for modeling and optimizing the additives such as Bi2O3 and TiO2 of ZnO-based low voltage varistor to achieve maximized non-linearity properties.

Tal diferença não pode ser atribuída a variações nos parâmetros de soldagem empregados. A análise dos elementos químicos residuais apontou o nitrogênio como sendo o principal responsável pelas discrepâncias observadas na microestrutura. O estudo das características operacionais de eletrodos classe E7018 tradicionais e aglomerados com polímero mostrou que a menor absorção de nitrogênio pelo metal de solda se deve a dois fatores principais. Medidas do teor de nitrogênio dissolvido das gotas coletadas durante a soldagem do eletrodo aglomerado com polímero demonstrou uma atmosfera protetora mais efetiva. O teor de carbono presente no metal de solda obtido pela soldagem do eletrodo com polímero apontou para uma atmosfera rica nesse elemento. Tal característica é coerente com a hipótese de uma melhor proteção gasosa. O tamanho médio das gotas coletadas, teor de nitrogênio dissolvido em função do tamanho e os oscilogramas de tensão indicaram alterações no modo de transferência metálica.

    Full Text Available Um dos grandes desafios no processamento cerâmico é a obtenção de dispersões de partículas estáveis e homogêneas contendo materiais com diferentes características físicas e químicas, como densidade, área de superfície específica, distribuição de tamanho de partículas e ponto isoelétrico. O comportamento de suspensões obtidas a partir da composição de um sistema varistor à base de ZnO (aditivos: Bi2O3, Sb2O3, Co3O4, Mn2O3, NiO, Cr2O3 em meio aquoso, utilizando o poliacrilato de amônio como dispersante foi avaliada para determinar a influência dos diferentes óxidos no processamento. Os óxidos foram caracterizados a partir das técnicas mobilidade eletroforética dinâmica, espectroscopia no infravermelho, distribuição granulométrica e área de superfície específica. Os óxidos aditivos apresentam características de superfície, como ponto isoelétricos (pie, distintos com relação ao óxido base (ZnO - pie 9.4. Os dois mais importantes, devido às fortes diferenças de pie foram o Sb2O3 e o Cr2O3, pie = 3,4 e 4,4, respectivamente. Esta diferença de pie entre o ZnO e os aditivos promovem uma mudança no pH quando em dispersão aquosa, que passa a ser de aproximadamente 8,0 e que pode comprometer a estabilidade da dispersão em algumas etapas do processo de dispersão.One of the greatest challenges of ceramic processing is to obtain a stable and homogeneous dispersion of particles when the components present different physical and chemical characteristics, such as density, specific surface area, size distribution and isoelectric point (iep. The ZnO varistor composition contains 7 different oxides (additives: Bi2O3, Sb2O3, Co3O4, Mn2O3, NiO, and Cr2O3 and the stability of the aqueous dispersion strongly depends on the specific surface area, the iep and the dispersant choice. In this work we evaluated the ammonium polyacrylate (PAA-NH4 as a dispersant to determine the influence of the different oxides on the

    It is necessary to investigate the electronic states of ceramic based ZnO vasristor and effect of doped impurities at different concentration. Band gap (Eg) of the ceramic (99-x) mol% ZnO+0.5 mol% Bi2O3+0.5 mol% TiO2+ xCo3O4 where x = 0, 0.2, 0.4, 0.6 and 0.8 mol%, were determined using UV-Vis spectrophotometer. The samples were prepared via solid-state route and sintered at the sintering temperature at 1110, 1140 and 1170 °C for 45 and 90 min in open air. At no doping of Co3O4, the values of Eg are 2.991 ± 0.001, 2.989 ± 0.001 eV for 45 and 90 min sintering time; respectively. Eg was decreased to 2.368 ± 0.002 and 2.352 ± 0.001 eV at 0.8 mol% Co3O4 for 45 and 90 min sintering time; respectively. XRD analysis indicates that two main phases existed at all concentrations which are ZnO and secondary phases, Bi12TiO20, Zn2Ti3O8, ZnCo2O4 and Co3Ti3O. Relative density decreases with the addition of Co3O4 compared to that of undoped at all doping level. When Co3O4 is added in the ceramics, relative density increases with the increase of doping level at both 45 and 90 min sintering time. The variation of sintering temperatures and XRD findings of steepness factor are correlated with the UV-Vis spectrophotometer results of based ZnO varistor doped with Co3O4 due to the growth of interface states.

    Full Text Available A influência de reações químicas específicas sobre o desenvolvimento microestrutural em varistores à base de ZnO é abordada a partir de um enfoque inovador. A relação entre alguns óxidos aditivos e suas reações com ZnO são revisitadas considerando o efeito dos produtos sobre a distribuição de fases na microestrutura. A formação de óxidos policátions e suas características com relação à habilidade em modificar o grau de homogeneidade microestrutural foram utilizadas para melhorar características microestruturais específicas. Nesta análise foram consideradas o ZnO, Bi2O3 e Sb2O3, bem como os produtos Zn2Bi3Sb3O14 e Zn7Sb2O12. Os óxidos ZnO e Zn2Bi3Sb3O14 foram classificados como sem atuação direta sobre o desenvolvimento microestrutural. A disponibilidade do óxido Bi2O3 foi considerada como um precursor de heterogeneidade, enquanto que o Zn7Sb2O12 foi considerado um precursor de homogeneidade. Neste sentido, um compósito cerâmica-cerâmica foi preparado por meio da adição (10% em peso do óxido tipo espinélio com estequiometria Zn4MnCoCrSb2O12 ± delta a uma composição adequada ao desenvolvimento de varistores. O compósito foi sinterizado a 1160 ºC pôr duas horas, sendo resfriado a partir da temperatura de sinterização até à temperatura ambiente. Homogeneidade microestrutural e propriedades elétricas significativas são desenvolvidas, sendo que o número de grãos de ZnO contendo maclas é aumentado de forma substancial. A textura destes grãos foi investigada através da análise digital da imagem de micrografia eletrônica de varredura. A correlação entre a população de grãos contendo maclas com homogeneidade microestrutural é discutida.The influence of specific chemical reactions on microstructural features in ZnO based varistors is reported from a new approach.

    Full Text Available A ferrita delta é considerada uma fase indesejável na microestrutura dos aços inoxidáveis martensíticos haja vista a mesma poder influenciar no desempenho da resistência à fadiga, tenacidade e corrosão sob-tensão. Sendo assim, o objetivo deste trabalho foi investigar o efeito da soldagem plasma pulsada sobre a distribuição e quantidade de ferrita delta em um aço inoxidável supermartensítico. Para tal foram obtidos cordões por meio de fusão superficial sobre uma amostra de aço inoxidável supermartensítico de alta liga utilizando corrente pulsada e convencional. Em seguida foi efetuada a caracterização microestrutural, em especial da ferrita delta, via análises metalográficas por meio de microscopia óptica e eletrônica de varredura . Os experimentos revelaram que, para o mesmo aporte térmico, a pulsação de corrente promoveu a formação de ferrita delta na forma de bandas ao longo do cordão de solda e redução significativa desta fase na ZTA quando comparada à soldagem convencional.The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of pulsed plasma welding on the distribution and amount of delta ferrite which is considered an undesirable phase in a supermartensitic stainless steel. For such weld beads have been obtained by melting the surface of a sample of a high-alloy supermartensitic stainless steel using pulsed and conventional current. Microstructural characterization, especially of delta ferrite, was performed by metallographic analysis by means of optical microscopy and scanning electron microscopy. The experiments showed that for the same heat input, pulsed current promoted the formation of delta ferrite in the form of bands along the weld bead and caused a significant reduction of this phase in HAZ as compared to conventional welding.

    Full Text Available Ceramic bodies formed from (Cu0.12Ni0.23Zn0.65Fe2O4 ferrite powders stand out as electromagnetic radiation absorbers among Cu-doped Ni-Zn ferrites, preventing interference between electronic devices. This study establishes a methodology for designing the sintering stage of a thermal cycle, which allows the foregoing ceramic bodies to be obtained with the appropriate microstructure (high relative density and little grain growth to provide them with good electromagnetic properties. The methodology consists, first, of determining the differential equations that relate the densification and grain-growth rates to average grain size, relative density, and sintering temperature, proposing the corresponding rate-controlling mass-transfer mechanism in each case. Secondly, the simultaneous integration of the two rate equations allows the evolution of relative density and average grain size with sintering time at a prefixed sintering temperature to be obtained. Thirdly, it is determined how this temperature needs to decrease with sintering time in order constantly to maintain a relatively high densification rate, while concurrently keeping the grain-growth rate from causing irregular and/or exaggerated grain growth.

    In ZnO-based low voltage varistor, the two essential features of microstructure determining its nonlinear response are the formation Bi-enriched active grain boundaries as well as a controlled ZnO grain size by secondary spinel-type phases. Besides, the microstructure and phase composition are strongly affected by the dopant concentration during sintering process. In this study, the optimal dopant levels of Bi2O3, TiO2, and Sb2O3 to achieve maximized nonlinear electrical property (alpha) were quantified by the response surface methodology (RSM). RSM was also used to understand the significance and interaction of the factors affecting the response. Variables were determined as the molar ratio of Bi2O3, TiO2, and Sb2O3. The alpha was chosen as response in the study. The 5-level-3-factor central composite design, with 20 runs, was used to conduct the experiments by ball milling method. A quadratic model was established as a functional relationship between three independent variables and alpha. According to the results, the optimum values of Bi2O3, TiO2, and Sb2O3 were obtained 0.52, 0.50, and 0.30, respectively. Under optimal conditions the predicted alpha (9.47) was calculated using optimal coded values from the model and the theoretical value is in good agreement with the value (9.43) obtained by confirmation experiment.

    The effect of Cr{sub 2}O{sub 3} addition on the physical characteristics, microstructure, and current-voltage properties of (Co-Sb)-doped SnO{sub 2} varistors was investigated. SnO{sub 2}-Co{sub 3}O{sub 4}-Sb{sub 2}O{sub 5} ceramics with additions of 0.0, 0.03, 0.05 and 0.07 mol % Cr{sub 2}O{sub 3} were sintered at 1350 C under ambient atmosphere and characterized micro structurally and electrically. The characterization by X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy show that the microstructure remains as a single phase material with multimodal size distribution of SnO{sub 2} grains. The greatest effect of Cr{sub 2}O{sub 3} additions is manifested in the electric breakdown field. Additions of high levels (0.07 and 0.05 %) of this oxide promote and increase of approximately 55% in this parameter compared to the Cr{sub 2}O{sub 3}-free sample. Another physical property is affected: the measured density values decreases as the Cr{sub 2}O{sub 3} content increases. A change in the nonlinearity coefficient value is produced only at the highest Cr{sub 2}O{sub 3} content while at intermediate levels there is not change at all. Consequently, when seeking high nonlinearity coefficients, intermediate levels of Cr{sub 2}O{sub 3} are not recommended. (Author)

    It is shown that tin dioxide based SnO{sub 2}-Co{sub 3}O{sub 4}-Nb{sub 2}O{sub 5}-Cr{sub 2}O{sub 3} ceramic material exhibits not only varistor properties discussed in the literature but also humidity-sensitive properties. At low electric fields conductivity of SnO{sub 2}-Co{sub 3}O{sub 4}-Nb{sub 2}O{sub 5}-Cr{sub 2}O{sub 3} ceramics is increased with relative humidity of air, however, highly nonlinear current-voltage characteristic is observed even at relative humidity 93%. Conduction mechanism in this material is grain-boundary controlled and decrease of the barrier height on voltage and on relative humidity is responsible, respectively, for varistor and sensor effects. Slow decrease of the low-field conductivity with time during several months after the sintering or high-temperature heat treatment is observed. Such ageing effect is accompanied by the decrease of the lowest value of the current density at highly nonlinear part of current-voltage characteristic. Addition of V{sub 2}O{sub 5} to SnO{sub 2}-Co{sub 3}O{sub 4}-Nb{sub 2}O{sub 5}-Cr{sub 2}O{sub 3} causes strong decrease of the nonlinearity coefficient, increase of the low-field conductivity, decrease of the activation energy of electrical conduction and decrease of the humidity sensitivity. At quite small V{sub 2}O{sub 5} addition (about 1 mol.%) the transition to a percolation along the V{sub 2}O{sub 5} phase is assumed. Secondary conductive V{sub 2}O{sub 5} phase acts as a shunt to the grain boundaries.

    Recent surveys show a new method of obtaining nanofibers, spinning blow solution (SBS). In SBS technique, the advantage is given at low cost because the electrical forces used in electrospinning are replaced by aerodynamic forces. Possessing unique properties, the nanofibers have a high potential for applications in nanosensors, nanofiltration, among others. Thus, this work aims to produce and characterize nanofiber ferrite through the SBS technique. For execution of work, a solution was prepared from the alcohol solvents and DMF (dimethylformamide), with addition of iron-III nitrate, nickel and zinc, and hydrochloric acid to stabilize the solution. Spinning was performed at a rate of 7.2 ml / h, 50 psi pressure and room temperature, the sample obtained was characterized. The results showed the efficacy technique where obtaining ferrite nanofibers with an average diameter of approximately 400nm was possible.(author)

    The present Ni-Zn ferrite magnetic properties sensitive to microstructure and obtain a ferrite with a uniform microstructure is the biggest challenge in the advancement of new technologies. This study proposes to evaluate the microstructure and magnetic properties of Ni-Zn ferrite sintered by microwave energy. The samples were previously synthesized by combustion reaction using urea and glycine, with 1200 deg C/2h sintered at a heating rate of 5 deg C/min, and characterized by density, XRD, SEM and magnetic measurements. The results show that the sample synthesized with glycine showed the formation of ferrite phase and traces of secondary phase hematite, grains with undefined format, and a high porosity and inter intragranular. The sample synthesized with urea gave only the ferrite phase, with hexagonal grains, and low intergranular porosity. The sample synthesized with urea showed better magnetic characteristics when compared with the samples synthesized with glycine. (author)

The obtained powders were calcined and characterized by X-ray diffraction and fluorescence, and by {sup 57} Fe Moessbauer spectroscopy. The liquid phase was analysed by atomic absorption. The samples of stoichiometric Ni Zn ferrite were obtained using Na O H as precipitating agent. The ferrite powders presented different particles size related with changing in the preparation method,and then, different hyperfine properties. Moessbauer effect measurements reveled the superparamagnetic nature of the ferrite samples that presented particles size smaller than 30 nm. (author) 9 refs., 3 figs., 3 tabs.

    The mechanism of copper ferrite reduction in the carbon monoxide system, is investigated in this work. Tests were carried out in a horizontal reactor at 850 degree centigree under the following parameters were studied: coarse particles ( 5 to 10 mm), ratio CO/(CO+CO{sub 2}) of 0.50 and time of reaction of 1,5, 15, 30 and 60 min. Based on analysis by micrographies and electron microprobe for the partially reacted particles it allows to propose global mechanism of reduction in which metallic copper is formed by means of two simultaneous mechanisms. One pathway by sequential transformation of tenorite and cupriteCuO*Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3}{yields}CuO{yields}Cu{sub 2}O{yields}Cu and the another pathway by intermediates of poly-spinels CuO*Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3}{yields}Cu{sub 0}.5Fe{sub 2}.5O{sub 4}{yields}Cu{sub x}Fe{sub 3}-xO{sub 4}{yields}Cu.

    This paper aims the synthesis by combustion reaction using microwave energy as heating source to obtain ferrite powders of Ni-Zn and its structural, morphological characterization. The influence of power and exposure time in the microwave oven was also investigated. The powders were prepared according to the theory of propellants and explosives using a vitreous silica crucible and urea as fuel. The powders were characterized by: XRD, BET and SEM. The resulted of XRD show only the formation of inverse spinel phase of Ni- Zn ferrite in all samples. The exposure time and power of microwave oven slightly altered the final characteristics of the powders. However, increasing the exposure time was more prominent than the increase of microwave power in both structural and morphological parameters. (author)

Nickel ferrite powders with a NiFe{sub 2-x}Cr{sub x}O{sub 4} nominal composition (x = 0.0; 0.5; 1.0 and 1.5 mol of the chromium) were synthesized by combustion reaction using urea as fuel. The powders resulting were characterized by XRD, nitrogen adsorption by BET, SEM and Mössbauer spectroscopy ({sup 57}Fe Mössbauer spectra). The results show that the substitution of the Fe{sup 3+} for Cr{sup 3+} ions increased the crystalline degree of the phase, reduced the superficial area and consequently increased the particle size. The Mössbauer spectra of the samples also confirm the distribution of the particles size by the magnetic properties. Analyze of the spectra Mössbauer gives an estimate of the superparamagnetic and ferromagnetic particles behavior in each sample for several chromium concentrations. (author)

    The aim of this work is to study the anisothermal decomposition of austenite at two different austenisation conditions in a medium carbon microalloyed steel. In this sense, continuous cooling transformation diagrams (CCT) have been obtained for both austenisation conditions to determine the continuous cooling that allows the formation of a microstructure mainly formed of acicular ferrite the best mechanical properties. The knowledge of the anisothermal decomposition of austenite in this steel has allowed to propose continuous cooling cycles for industrial application. That produce high volume fraction of acicular ferrite. (Author) 17 refs.

    Microstructural changes that occur during heat treatment of copper-nickel-zinc ferrites have been studied. The process of precipitation of the two types of crystals that occur during the sintering process has been analyzed. It is found that this process depends on dry relative density of the press specimens and on the following sintering parameters: sintering temperature, sintering time and cooling rate of the thermal cycle. Crystal precipitates characterization have been done by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy-dispersive X-ray (EDX) analysis, X-ray diffraction (XRD), and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). These techniques have allowed to determine the nature of these crystals, which in this case correspond to zinc and copper oxides. It has been used two chemical reactions to explain the bulk precipitation and subsequent re-dissolution of these crystal precipitates during sintering. (Author)

    The study of the processing of Ni-Zn ferrite is of extreme importance to improve its magnetic properties, as they are directly influenced by the final microstructure of the material. This study evaluated the influence of exposure time in the sintering of Ni-Zn ferrite phase by microwave energy, and its subsequent microstructural characterization, and magnetic. The samples of Ni-Zn ferrite were sintered using microwave energy at a temperature of 1200 °C and an exposure time of 10, 20 and 30 minutes, respectively. Then were characterized by X-ray diffraction spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy and magnetic measurements. With the results, it was observed that all samples obtained from the formation Ni{sub 0,5}Zn{sub 0,5}Fe{sub 2}O{sub 4} phase with all high intensity peaks. It was possible to obtain a nanostructure with maximum saturation magnetization of 71 emu / g for the sample sintered in longer exposure time. (author)

The influence of the concentration of samarium on the structure, morphology and electromagnetic properties of ferrites was studied. The resulting samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), magnetic measurements and reflectivity measurements in the frequency range between 8-12 GHz. The results showed that increasing the concentration of samarium caused a decrease in particle size of the samples, encouraging, therefore, to obtain materials with better values of magnetization and reflectivity, allowing for use as absorbers in narrow-band frequency between 9-10 GHz.

    The degradation behaviour of SnO{sub 2}-based varistors (SCNCr) due to current pulses (8/20 {mu}s) is reported here for the first time in comparison with the ZnO-based commercial varistors (ZnO). Puncturing and/or cracking failures were observed in ZnO-based varistors possessing inferior thermo-mechanical properties in comparison with that found in a SCNCr system free of failures. Both systems presented electric degradation related to the increase in the leakage current and decrease in the electric breakdown field, non-linear coefficient and average value of the potential barrier height. However, it was found that a more severe degradation occurred in the ZnO-based varistors concerning their non-ohmic behaviour, while in the SCNCr system, a strong non-ohmic behaviour remained after the degradation. These results indicate that the degradation in the metal oxide varistors is controlled by a defect diffusion process whose rate depends on the mobility, the concentration of meta-stable defects and the amount of electrically active interfaces. The improved behaviour of the SCNCr system is then inferred to be associated with the higher amount of electrically active interfaces (85%) and to a higher energy necessary to activate the diffusion of the specific defects.

    This study aimed to evaluate the influence of Zn{sup 2+} in the morphological and magnetic characteristics of ferrites Mn{sub 1-x}Zn{sub x} Fe{sub 2} O{sub 4} (where x= 0.0, 0.35, 0.5 and 0.65 mol of Zn) synthesized by combustion reaction in a pilot scale with batches of 200 g/reaction. The samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction, scanning/transmission electron microscopy, and magnetic measurements. The results indicated that all compositions were single phase of ferrite; morphologically the addition of Zn to MnFe{sub 2} O{sub 4} system caused a slight reduction in size of the agglomerates, and reduced the particle size, but this behavior was not linear with the Zn{sup 2+} content. The samples had characteristic magnetic behavior of soft magnetic materials, maximum saturation magnetization of 62 emu/g for the sample with lower zinc content in its composition. (author)

    The Mn-Zn ferrites have been used in various technological areas, due to their attractive properties in technical and scientific senses. This paper aimed to synthesize Mn{sub 0.65}Zn{sub 0.35}Fe{sub 2}O{sub 4} ferrites by combustion reaction and evaluate the effect of dilution of the reactants in distilled water on the microstructural and magnetic characteristics. The samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction, scanning and transmission electron microscopy, Curie temperature and magnetic measurements. It was observed that increasing dilution with water during synthesis by combustion reaction was favorable for obtaining monophasic Mn{sub 0.65}Zn{sub 0.35}Fe{sub 2}O{sub 4} ferrite. It also favored a decrease in the agglomerate size and an increase in Curie temperature with maximum value of saturation magnetization of 62 emu/g for the sample diluted in 1:10 ratio. (author)

    In this work were synthesized copper and zinc ferrites (0 - 10% mol with respect to copper), by the combustion method, using citrate as stabilizer. The obtained products were analyzed by Infrared spectrometry (FTIR), Raman spectroscopy (RAMAN) and x-ray diffractometry (DRX). Synthesized ferrites present hematite phase, maghemite phase and copper ferrite phases. The analysis indicated that increasing the zinc content leads to decreased of hematite phase. Increasing of zinc content lead to an increase of particle size. The best results of oil acylation were obtained with ferrites containing 2 and 4% of zinc, wherein the increase the increase of yield of acetylated product reached at 19% when compared with the yield obtained whit copper ferrite without zinc.

    Full Text Available Zinc oxide, ZnO, is a very interesting compound in science and electronic ceramics technology. ZnO ceramics containing some additives were reported to show varistor action with excellent nonlinearity in current - voltage characteristics. However, investigations were restricted to the ZnO - Bi2O3 ceramic system. Other type of varistor, which contains praseodymium oxide, also present nonlinear behaviour. In this work, results obtained in the synthesis Zn-Pr-Co powder are shown. In order to determine and control the several stages of the chemical method, potentiometric titration was used. The solid phase obtained was pressed and sintered.

    Full Text Available In the present work, the mechanical behaviour of ferritic-perlitic and ferritic-martensitic steels has been studied. These microstructures have been obtained with different thermic treatments. For this study, the volumetric fraction of each phase and the ferrite grain size have been quantified by metallography. For mechanical characterization, tensile tests have been carried out and the nanoindentation technique has been used to analize the mechanical behaviour of each phase. The nanohardness of ferrite increases when the ferrite is surraunding by the martensite instead of the pearlite. In order to study the effect of the martensite in the ferrite, the misorientations inside the ferrite grain have been analyzed by the technique EBSD/OIM.

    En el presente trabajo, se ha estudiado el comportamiento mecánico de aceros con microestructuras ferrito-perlíticas y ferrito-martensíticas y la relación de estas con la microestructura. Se han obtenido las diferentes microestructuras mediante tratamientos térmicos. Mediante metalografía cuantitativa se ha determinado la fracción volumétrica de cada fase y el tamaño de grano de la ferrita. Para la caracterización mecánica, se han realizado ensayos de tracción. Con el fin de analizar el comportamiento mecánico de cada fase, se ha utilizado la técnica de nanoindentación. Se ha observado que la ferrita tiene mayor dureza si se encuentra en una microestructura ferrito-martensítica que si está en una ferrito-perlítica. Por ello, se ha estudiado el efecto que tiene la presencia de martensita en las características de la ferrita. En este estudio se han aplicado técnicas de EBSD/OIM, con las que se han analizado las desorientaciones presentes en el interior de los granos de ferrita

The calcined materials were characterized by XRD and SEM showed that the method of the precursor citrate is an effective method. The X-ray diffraction spectra and refinement show good agreement between the experimental peaks and the theoretical spectrum. In Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), the samples to 350° C/3h, have dimensions in the micrometer order in all compositions. The average size of the crystals are consistent with the higher definition and intensity of peaks of X-rays, that is, there is high correlation with those obtained by refining method. (author)

    The effect of sequential additions of Co{sub 3}O{sub 4}, Sb{sub 2}O{sub 5} and CaCO{sub 3} on the microstructure and electrical behaviour of SnO{sub 2}-based ceramics was investigated. Although without conferring varistor properties, Co{sub 3}O{sub 4} additions promote densification in the material. Successive addition of Sb{sub 2}O{sub 5} provides the sample varistor properties but with low nonlinearity coefficient ({alpha} = 5.7) and high electric field (E{sub 1} = 2022 V cm{sup -1}) at current density 10{sup -3} A cm{sup -3}. Moreover, antimony oxide addition degrades the microstructure condition by inducing porosity. Subsequent addition of CaCO{sub 3} promotes densification and grain growth. However, it does not lead to the increase in the nonlinearity coefficient. It only lowers the electric field, thus making the material suitable for lower voltage applications. Observed significant increase in the relative dielectric permittivity up to a factor of about 60 and 200 in the cases of antimony or antimony and calcium addition to SnO{sub 2}-Co{sub 3}O{sub 4} (accompanied by the appearance of varistor effect) is due to the formation of barrier depletion layers at grain boundaries.

Their chemical composition conditions the ageing processes that can happen during heat treatments, where phases that hardens and brittles the material can be generated. Evolution of a new duplex stainless steel with lower nickel and higher nitrogen and manganese content maintained at 1123 K (critical precipitation temperature up to 8 hours compared to classical ones (2205 and 2507 is presented. The study, done by magnetic measurements, XRD, optical and scanning electron microscopy and microanalysis, revealed a roughly similar behaviour for the three steels. The new one presents a higher initial stability, probably due to the high nitrogen and manganese contents; however, it also produces the higher final transformation due to the higher initial ferrite. A fine comparative analysis was done to correctly identify any phase; an accurate microanalysis in every generated phase was performed. All the steels tested are initially made on ferrite and austenite. After the ageing treatment, 8 hours at 1123 K, in the 2205 duplex steel a strong precipitation of sigma phase is observed, austenite and some of the original ferrite are also present; ferrite completely transforms in the 2507 duplex and austenite, sigma, secondary austenite and chromium nitride can be found; regarding the new duplex steel DBNi, austenite, ferrite, sigma, chi and chromium nitrides are detected.

    Full Text Available Ceramic materials based in the ZnO- Bi2O3 system have their principal application as varistors. The binary system ZnO-Bi2O3 is specially relevant to the formation of the microstructure responsable of the varistor behaviour. The study of the different equilibrium phases at high temperatures at the Bi2O3-rich region of the ZnO-Bi2O3 will allow a correct understanding of the microstructural development. Equilibrium phases have been analyzed by XRD, SEM and DTA. Different temperature treatments of samples formulated in the Bi2O3 rich region of the ZnO-Bi2O3 binary system have allowed to determine the phase 19Bi2O3•ZnO as the equilibrium one instead of the 24Bi2O3•ZnO phase.Los materiales cerámicos basados en el sistema binario ZnO-Bi2O3 tienen su principal aplicación en el campo de los varistores.

El estudio de las fases en equilibrio se ha llevado a cabo mediante difracción de rayos X, microscopía electrónica de barrido (MEB y análisis térmico diferencial (ATD. Tratamientos a diferentes temperaturas, en la zona rica en Bi2O3 del sistema, han permitido determinar la presencia del compuesto 19Bi2O3•ZnO como fase estable en equilibrio, en lugar del compuesto 24Bi2O3•ZnO.

    Straumal, B. B.; Myatiev, A. A.; Straumal, P. B.; Mazilkin, A. A.

    Nanostructured conducting oxides are very promising for various applications like varistors (doped zinc oxide), electrolytes for the solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC) (ceria, zirconia, yttria), semipermeable membranes, and sensors (perovskite-type oxides). Grain boundary (GB) phases crucially determine the properties of nanograined oxides. GB phase transformations (wetting, prewetting, pseudopartial wetting) proceed in the conducting oxides. Novel GB lines appear in the conventional bulk phase diagrams. They can be used for the tailoring of properties of nanograined conducting oxides, particularly by using the novel synthesis method of liquid ceramics.

    This paper describes the design, simulation, processing and test result of a high sensitivity accelerometer based on the piezoresistive effect which uses an overlay bridge detection method. The structure of this accelerometer is supersymmetric “mass-beams". This accelerometer has 8 beams, where two varistors are put in the two ends. Four varistors compose a Wheatstone bridge and the output voltages of the 4 Wheatstone bridges have been superimposed as the final output voltage. The sensitivity of the accelerometer can be improved effectively by these clever methods. A simplified mathematical model has been created to analyze the mechanical properties of the sensor, then the finite element modeling and simulation have been used to verify the feasibility of the accelerometer. The results show that the sensitivity of the accelerometer is 1.1381 mV/g, which is about four times larger than that of the single bridge accelerometers and series bridge sensor. The bandwidth is 0-1000 Hz which is equal to that of the single bridge accelerometers and the series bridge sensor. The comparison reveals that the new overlay detection bridge method can improve the sensitivity of the sensor in the same bandwidth. Meanwhile, this method provides an effective method to improve the sensitivity of piezoresistive sensors.

    We have made a systematic study of the Bi-decoration process in a Σ=13 [0 0 0 1] tilt grain boundary in ZnO by first-principles calculations. This grain boundary is taken as a model system for studying the microscopic properties of commercial Bi-doped ZnO-varistors. The calculations show that the decoration process is strongly site dependent and that there is a considerable segregation energy for the Bi-atoms at low concentration. Increasing the concentration lowers the segregation energy which sets an upper limit of approximately 32% for the Bi-concentration in this grain boundary. This implies that the Bi-atoms stay in the grain boundary region rather than diffusing into the ZnO grains during the manufacturing process, but the maximum Bi-concentration is limited which is consistent with the experimental observations. Bi-impurities in ZnO act as donors at low impurity concentration, but a localized Bi-Bi-bond is formed at higher Bi-concentration in the grain boundary. This Bi-state is located in the band gap of ZnO and it may be responsible for the varistor effect observed in Bi-decorated grain boundaries.

    2015-03-01

    Full Text Available Este trabalho estuda a microestrutura formada na zona termicamente afetada (ZTA e na zona fundida (ZF de uma junta soldada pelo processo TIG automático no passe de raiz, processo plasma nos passes de enchimento e soldagem SAW para os passes de acabamento em junta de topo com chanfro “V” simples, usando o aço inoxidável austenítico AISI 347. Foram estudadas as condições: como soldada; após tratamento térmico convencional de solubilização a 1060 °C e estabilização a 900 °C; e após tratamento térmico alternativo, onde a peça foi solubilizada a 1060 °C e mantida no forno que foi resfriado até 900 °C para a estabilização. Os resultados mostram que, na condição como soldado houve crescimento de grão na ZTA e a ZF apresentou 13% de ferrita com diferentes morfologias, tendo sido observada a precipitação de carbetos de Cr e de Nb. Após o tratamento térmico convencional de solubilização e estabilização, foi observada uma diminuição significativa do teor de ferrita na ZTA e na ZF, tendo sido observados carbetos de Nb e Cr, distribuídos de forma mais dispersa e com tamanhos menores, que contribuem para minimizar a possibilidade de ocorrer o fenômeno da sensitização. Após tratamento térmico alternativo de solubilização e estabilização, a microestrutura da ZTA e ZF foi similar à obtida no tratamento convencional, sendo que o teor de ferrita δ na ZF foi ainda mais reduzido, de 4,5%. Foi concluído que o tratamento térmico alternativo de solubilização e estabilização foi tão eficaz quanto o tratamento térmico convencional para a adequação da microestrutura da junta soldada, com uma significativa vantagem do tratamento térmico proposto em reduzir o tempo e o custo desta operação.

    Full Text Available Zinc oxide containing rare earth metal and Cobalt oxide are utilized as raw material to make varistors. Some of systems were found to exhibit non-ohmic current-voltaje characteristics and they are applicable not only for low voltaje devices but also for hight voltaje electric power stations. The microstructure of ZnO varistor can be considered as a vehicle thorugh which all of these properties ara manifested. Therefore, a discussion of the microstructure cannot be separated from a discussion of the properties. Fine particle dimensions and a narrow size distribution are often important aims when fabricating a ceramic material of a desired microstructure. Chemical methods give the ability to produce powders with an exceptionally small size in the nanometer range. In this paper we report the production of nanosized ZnO, doped with cobalt and Praseodymium oxides, using co-precipitation reaction and metallorganic polymeric method. Adequate description of synthesis methods and the characterization of ceramic powders obtained are show.Los polvos cerámicos de ZnO - Pr2O3 - CoO son utilizados como materia prima para la fabricación de varistores. Estos dispositivos presentan una característica corriente - voltaje altamente no lineal que permiten su uso como conmutadores de estado sólido con capacidad de manejar altas energías.

Con el fin de optimizar las propiedades de los varistores de ZnO es necesario establecer un adecuado control sobre la composición del sistema, la naturaleza de los dopantes, métodos de síntesis y condiciones de sinterización.

    Full Text Available Resumo Características microestruturais e mecânicas foram avaliadas ao longo da seção transversal de juntas obtidas por soldagem (GMAW, de tubos sem costura de aço API 5L X65Q. Dois tipos de juntas foram obtidas a partir da confecção de chanfro V e ½ V. Dividindo-se as chapas soldadas em 8 camadas espaçadas de 3mm, no sentido transversal, corpos de prova foram confeccionados para ensaios de tração, microdureza Vickers e análise química. Foi realizada ainda caracterização metalográfica no metal base e nas juntas soldadas. Observou-se pequena alteração na composição química do metal de solda entre as camadas da junta V e junta ½ V. A maior taxa de resfriamento promoveu maior fração de ferrita acicular no chanfro ½ V. Alguns corpos de prova de tamanho reduzido não atenderam aos limites mínimos de escoamento e de resistência especificados na Norma API 5L, resultado atribuído à presença de descontinuidades em algumas regiões da solda. A maior microdureza Vickers da junta ½ V foi atribuída à maior presença de ferrita acicular. A adoção de chanfro estreito para aumento de produtividade na soldagem do aço em estudo não impactou negativamente as propriedades da junta, entretanto, aumentou a ocorrência de falta de fusão na face do bisel.

    Full Text Available This report analyses the influence of the use of an inert gas welding chamber with a totally inert atmosphere on the microstructure and mechanical properties of austenitic AISI 316L stainless steel TIG welds, using AISI ER316L, AISI 308L and Inconel 625 as filler metals. When compared with the typical TIG process, the use of the inert gas chamber induced changes in the microstructure, mainly an increase in the presence of vermicular ferrite and ferrite stringers, what resulted in higher yield strengths and lower values of hardness. Its effect on other characteristics of the joins, such as tensile strength, depended on the filler metal. The best combination of mechanical characteristics was obtained when welding in the inert gas chamber using Inconel 625 as filler metal.

    En este estudio se analiza la influencia que el uso de una cámara de soldadura de gas inerte tiene sobre la microestructura y las propiedades mecánicas de las soldaduras TIG en el acero inoxidable austenítico AISI-316L cuando se emplean AISI ER316L, AISI 308L e Inconel 625 como materiales de aporte. Cuando se compara con el típico proceso de TIG, el uso de una cámara de gas inerte induce cambios en la microestructura, incrementando la presencia de ferrita vermicular y de laminillas de ferrita, resultando en un aumento del límite elástico y una pérdida de dureza. Su influencia sobre otras características de las soldaduras como la carga de rotura depende de la composición del material de aporte. La mejor combinación de propiedades mecánicas se obtuvo usando el Inconel 625 como material de aporte y soldando en la cámara de gas inerte.

    Full Text Available The influence of thermomechanical treatments, first carried out at laboratory and afterwards on an industrial scale on the mechanical properties of microalloyed forging steels is analysed. The influence of hot working conditions and the cooling rate after hot working on both the strength and the toughness is analysed. Optimization of the thermomechanical treatments parameters has been carried out at laboratory and the optimized schedules have been carried out industrially. The actual experimental results of mechanical properties have been rationalized in terms of the microstructure developed during the different thermomechanical treatments. After slow cooling of steel bars hot rolled at low temperature (below 850 °C, the ferrite-pearlite is much refined and the toughness improved. Alternatively, accelerated cooling after hot working at high temperature produces a microstructure of acicular ferrite with improved toughness.

    Se analiza la influencia de los tratamientos termomecánicos, en primer lugar, llevados a cabo en laboratorio y, posteriormente, en un proceso industrial, sobre las propiedades mecánicas de aceros microaleados de forja. Se han variado las temperaturas de forja y las velocidades de enfriamiento tras la misma y se ha estudiado su influencia sobre la resistencia y la tenacidad. La optimización de los tratamientos termomecánicos se ha realizado a nivel de laboratorio, probándose posteriormente las secuencias optimizadas a escala industrial. Las propiedades mecánicas se pueden explicar en términos de las microestructuras obtenidas en los diversos tratamientos termomecánicos. Así, microestructuras gruesas, obtenidas por enfriamientos lentos tras la deformación a elevadas temperaturas, muestran un comportamiento frágil.

    The experiments on the IGBT solid state switch for induction accelerator was carried out with two series 1.2 kV, 75 A IGBT (GA75TS120U). The static and dynamic balancing modules were carried out with metal oxide varistors, capacities and diodes in order to suppress the over-voltage during IGBT on and off. Experimental results show that IGBT solid state switch works very stable under the different conditions. It can output peak voltage 1.8 kV, rise time 300 ns, fall time 1.64 mu s waveforms on the loads. The simulation data using OrCAD are in accord with experimental results except the rise time

    The trapping of electrons by grain boundaries in semiconducting and insulating materials is important for a wide range of physical problems, for example, relating to: electroceramic materials with applications as sensors, varistors and fuel cells, reliability issues for solar cell and semiconductor technologies and electromagnetic seismic phenomena in the Earth's crust. Surprisingly, considering their relevance for applications and abundance in the environment, there have been few experimental or theoretical studies of the electron trapping properties of grain boundaries in highly ionic materials such as the alkaline earth metal oxides and alkali halides. Here we demonstrate, by first-principles calculations on MgO, LiF and NaCl, a qualitatively new type of electron trapping at grain boundaries. This trapping is associated with the negative electron affinity of these materials and is unusual as the electron is confined in the empty space inside the dislocation cores.

    Full Text Available The obtaining of ZnO-Bi2O3-Sb2O3 (ZBS based varistor thick films with high non-linear properties is constrained by the bismuth loss by vaporization that takes place during the sintering step of these ceramics, a process which is yet more critical in the thick film geometry due to its inherent high are/volume ratio. This volatilization can be controlled to a certain extent by modifying the proportions of the Bi and/or Sb precursors. Obviously this requires a clear knowledge of the different solid state compatibilities in the mentioned ZBS system. In this sense a detailed study of the thermal evolution of the ZnO-Bi2O3-Sb2O3 and ZnO-Bi2O3-Sb2O5 systems in the ZnO-rich region of interest for varistors, is presented in this contribution. A different behaviour is observed when using Sb2O3 or Sb2O5 as starting precursor, which should be attributed to the oxidation process experimented by Sb2O3 compound during the heating. On the other hand the use of high amounts of Bi in the starting formulation leads to the formation of a liquid phase at lower temperatures, which would allow the use of lower sintering temperatures.La obtención de varistors en lámina gruesa basados en ZnO-Bi2O3-Sb2O3 (ZBS y con propiedades altamente no-lineales está limitada por la perdida de bismuto por volatilización durante la sinterización de estos cerámicos, un proceso que es todavía más crítico en la geometría de lámina gruesa debido a su elevada relación área/volumen inherente. Dicha volatilización puede ser no obstante controlada hasta cierta extensión modificando las proporciones de los precursores de Bi y/o Sb. Obviamente ello conlleva un amplio conocimiento de las diferentes compatibilidades en estado sólido en el mencionado sistema ZBS. En este sentido, en la presente contribución se presenta un estudio detallado de la evolución térmica de los sistemas ZnO-Bi2O3-Sb2O3 y ZnO-Bi2O3-Sb2O5 en la región rica en ZnO de interés para varistores.

    Full Text Available Tin oxide is a widely used compound in technological applications, particularity as a catalyst, gas sensor and in making varistors, transparent conductors, electrocatalytic electrodes and photovoltaic cells. An ethylhexanoate tin salt, a carboxylic acid and poly-esterification were used for synthesising highly reactive tin oxide in the present study. Synthesis was controlled by Fourier transform infrared (FTIR spectroscopy and recording changes in viscosity. The tin oxide characteristics so obtained were determined using FTIR spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction (XRD and scanning electron microscopy (SEM. The SnO2 dust synthesised and heat-treated at 550°C yielded high density aggregates, having greater than 50 μm particle size. This result demonstrates the high reactivity of the ceramic powders synthesised here.

    Full Text Available This paper presents a comprehensive survey on transmission and distribution fault location algorithms that utilize synchronized measurements. Algorithms based on two-end synchronized measurements and fault location algorithms on three-terminal and multiterminal lines are reviewed. Series capacitors equipped with metal oxide varistors (MOVs, when set on a transmission line, create certain problems for line fault locators and, therefore, fault location on series-compensated lines is discussed. The paper reports the work carried out on adaptive fault location algorithms aiming at achieving better fault location accuracy. Work associated with fault location on power system networks, although limited, is also summarized. Additionally, the nonstandard high-frequency-related fault location techniques based on wavelet transform are discussed. Finally, the paper highlights the area for future research.

    The electronic properties of a {sigma}=13 32.2 deg. [0001] tilt grain boundary in ZnO have been investigated using first-principles calculations. Two atomic models for the boundary have been considered, one of which contains structural units that are consistent with those observed for this orientation using electron microscopy. Doping both the grain boundary models with antimony reveals a strong driving force for segregation. Analysis of the electronic densities of states, bond populations and Mulliken charges shows that antimony creates a localized impurity state in the grain boundary and acts as a donor dopant. The resulting charge accumulation at the grain boundary together with the presence of local bonds that are metallic in character, will influence the mechanism for charge transport across the interface and this is discussed in relation to varistor applications.

    The segregation of native defects and Bi impurities to a high-angle grain boundary in ZnO is studied by first-principles calculations. It is found that the presence of BiZn increases the concentration of native defects of acceptor type in the grain boundary. This leads to the formation of a BiZn+VZn+Oi interfacial complex under O-rich conditions and exhibits a localized acceptor state. This state, which is different from that of the isolated impurity, gives the grain boundary p-type character and when embedded between n-type ZnO grains is consistent with the double Schottky barrier model for Bi-doped ZnO varistors.

    We present a density functional theory analysis of stoichiometric and nonstoichiometric ZnO tilt grain boundaries (GBs) that reveals under which conditions such extrinsically undoped GBs may become electrically active. In the case of ZnO the self-interaction correction (SIC) scheme used allows a more accurate description of the formation energies as well as the electronic levels than the local density approximation (LDA). The results obtained with the SIC scheme deviate in some crucial ways from the LDA results of recent years. First, stoichiometric and nonstoichiometric ZnO GBs can show occupied deep levels whenever oxygen atoms are undercoordinated. Second, ZnO GBs with an oxygen excess at the boundary plane can exhibit unoccupied deep levels which may account for an experimentally observed weak varistor effect found in undoped polycrystalline ZnO.

    2016-08-01

    In this work, a novel two-step synthesis of ZnO/Bi2O3 core/shell nanoparticles is presented. Spherical core particles of ZnO were first synthesized by a 95°C direct precipitation method with the assistance of polyethylene glycol (PEG-6000) surfactants, and then used as precursors to prepare ZnO/Bi2O3 core/shell particles via a 70°C low-temperature sol-gel method. Techniques including x-ray diffraction, Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy, transmission electron microscopy, energy-dispersive x-ray spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy were employed to characterize the as-synthesized samples. The ZnO nanoparticles were almost spherical in shape, with particle size ranging from 15 nm to 28 nm, and belonged to a hexagonal wurtzite crystal structure. Furthermore, the experimental result showed that ZnO nanoparticles were fully covered with Bi2O3. In addition, using ZnO/Bi2O3 core/shell nanoparticles (1 mol.% Bi2O3) via this sol-gel method, after sintering in air at 1100°C for 2 h, the varistors showed maximum relative density of 96.6%, with high breakdown voltage (2191 ± 0.72 V/cm), low leakage current (0.12 ± 0.07 μA) and nonlinear coefficient (6 ± 0.14), suggesting that nano-coating is a promising route for the preparation of ZnO varistors.

    An electro-thermal model for a Zinc Oxide (ZnO) surge arrester under contamination test is presented. The model is based in three sub-models: electrical, thermal and contamination, which interact in order to obtain the surge arrester performance under contamination tests. The electrical model is obtained from measurements and is based on a capacitance and a non-linear resistor. The thermal model takes into account the heat generated and dissipated by the column of varistors and its surroundings. The contamination is represented by dynamic impedance obtained from measurements in the arrester column during contamination tests. The full model is validated by calculating the temperature increase during contamination tests carried out in a two units ZnO surge arrester, class 190 kV. Finally, the results of the effect of several design and construction parameters in the voltage and temperature distribution in the arrester column during contamination tests are presented. [Spanish] Se presenta el modelo electro-termico para un apartarrayos de Oxido de Zinc (ZnO) durante pruebas de contaminacion.

El modelo electrico se obtiene de mediciones y esta compuesto de una capacitancia y una resistencia no-lineal. El modelo termico considera el calor generado y disipado en la columna de varistores y su entorno. La contaminacion se representa como una impedancia dinamica, cuyos valores se obtienen de mediciones en la columna del apartarrayos durante pruebas de contaminacion. El modelo se valida determinando el incremento de temperatura durante pruebas de contaminacion en un apartarrayos de ZnO de dos unidades clase 1990 kV.

    Full Text Available Atualmente os aços inoxidáveis martensíticos tem sido utilizados para a fabricação de turbinas hidráulicas, devido principalmente a sua elevada tenacidade. Entretanto, estes aços apresentam algumas restrições com relação à regiões recuperadas por soldagem, principalmente em razão da formação de martensita não revenida, a qual gera redução na tenacidade. Considerando as aplicações de reparo de turbinas hidráulicas, há grande interesse em desenvolver procedimentos de soldagem que elevem a tenacidade ao impacto e evitem os tratamentos térmicos pós-soldagem (TTPS. O presente trabalho busca analisar a influência da temperatura de interpasse na microestrutura, tenacidade ao impacto e propagação de trincas por fadiga nas uniões soldadas multipasse do aço inoxidável martensitico CA6NM usando AWS410NiMo como metal de adição, e processo TIG (tungsten inert gas. Observou-se a influência da temperatura de interpasse na formação de ferrita d, com formação intergranular no campo bifásico δ+γ, na amostra com temperatura interpasse de 80ºC, enquanto que na amostra soldada a 150ºC a formação de ferrita d ocorreu principalmente no campo monofásico. A alteração na formação da ferrita d, com a menor temperatura, promoveu um aumento na tenacidade ao impacto e uma diminuição na velocidade de propagação de trinca, quando comparada com a amostra soldada com maior temperatura de soldagem. Os resultados obtidos indicam que o processo TIG apresenta-se como uma excelente alternativa para o reparo do aço CA6NM, observando-se também uma influência significativa da temperatura de interpasse.Martensitic stainless steels have been used for hydraulic turbines manufacturing, because its high toughness.

Adicionalmente, el rango bifásico (austenita + ferrita en el sistema Fe-C disminuye con el incremento de aluminio y silicio en los aceros experimentales. Los resultados de difracción de rayos X fueron sustentados por observaciones microestructurales en muestras del acero B, el cual fue sometido tratamientos térmicos similares a los empleados en los experimentos de DR-X. Se observaron finas capas de ferrita a temperaturas cercanas a la temperatura Ar3 obtenida experimentalmente en el acero B.

    Full Text Available Os cordões de solda apresentam normalmente uma estrutura colunar grosseira, o que diminui as propriedades mecânicas do conjunto soldado. No caso da soldagem com arco submerso, o emprego de alta energia proporciona uma solda com características peculiares como a elevada taxa de fusão e consequentemente grande volume de metal fundido. Foi comprovado que a redução no tamanho e/ou modificações na forma dos cristais obtidos aumenta a tenacidade da junta soldada. Estudos realizados mostraram que a adição de titânio, até certo limite, modificaria a microestrutura obtida bem como o tamanho dos grãos solidificados. Neste trabalho, foi empregada uma liga metálica de Fe-Ti adicionada no momento de soldagem, tipo bead-on-plate, sobre aço estrutural ASTM A 36, com espessura de 10 mm. As adições de titânio variaram entre 0,48 ppm e 29,1 ppm, e a soldagem foi executada com uma energia de 1170 kJ/m. Os resultados mostraram modificações da fase ferrita acicular bem como da ferrita poligonal presentes na solda.The welds usually have a coarse columnar structure, which reduces the mechanical properties of welded assembly. In the case of submerged arc welding, the use of high-energy provides a weld with specific characteristics such as high melting rate and consequently a large volume of molten metal. It was established that the reduction in size and/or changes in the shape of the crystals obtained increases the toughness of the weld. Studies have shown that the addition of titanium to a certain limit, modify the microstructure obtained and the size of the grains solidified. In this study, we used an alloy of Fe-Ti added at the time of welding-type bead-on-plate on structural steel ASTM A 36 with a thickness of 10 mm. The additions of titanium ranged between 0.48 ppm and 29.1 ppm, and welding was performed with an energy of 1170 kJ/m The results showed changes in the phase acicular ferrite and polygonal ferrite present in the weld.

    Full Text Available O objetivo deste trabalho foi realizar uma avaliação metalúrgica da soldagem de revestimento inox austenítico sobre a área de selagem de tubos de Riser fabricados em aço SAE 4130. O estudo foi dividido em duas etapas. A primeira etapa teve como objetivo a determinação da taxa de diluição e taxa de deposição para os níveis máximo e mínimo de energia de soldagem conforme procedimentos de soldagem (EPS com os processos TIG e ER. A seguir, foi feita análise e estudo com o diagrama de Schaeffler para identificar os consumíveis de solda mais adequados, conforme critérios de qualidade estabelecidos. Este estudo identificou o metal de adição 312 para a primeira camada, o 309 e 308 para a segunda. Todos usando o nível máximo de energia de soldagem e o processo de soldagem ER, com benefícios à produtividade. A segunda etapa teve como objetivo a validação dos resultados empíricos encontrados na 1ª etapa, com a execução de soldas de revestimento com duas camadas cada, e a caracterização metalúrgica das juntas soldadas por ensaios mecânicos e análise microestrutural por MO e MEV. Os resultados dos ensaios mecânicos e da microestrutura foram considerados satisfatórios, atendendo os critérios de qualidade adotados. Foi observada uma microestrutura austeno-ferritica com teor de ferrita delta entre 10 a 15 % nas duas camadas do revestimento. O eletrodo 312 assumiu posição de destaque na aplicação da 1ª camada da solda de revestimento sobre o aço SAE 4130, em função do seu maior teor de ferrita delta e cromo, evitando a formação de trincas a quente. Para a segunda camada, tanto o 309 como o 308 podem ser usados. Todas as soldas foram feitas com elevada energia de soldagem, garantindo o aumento da produtividade, sem alteração significativa nas características físicas e mecânicas.

    Full Text Available The influence of microstructures formed by serpentine addition on mechanical strength is investigated. It was found that the microstructure formed depends mainly on firing temperature, basicity and serpentine percent. The mineralogical phases present were quantified by the point-count method. The addition of serpentine on acid briquettes (CaO/Si O2 = 0.3, mainly on those fired at 1,275, 1,300 and 1,325 °C, leads to the formation of magnesio-ferrite that diminishes the mechanical strength of fired briquettes, and at the temperature of 1,250 °C the mechanical strength decreases because of the presence of glassy slags. On the other hand, the addition of serpentine on basic briquettes (CaO/Si O2 = 1.2 leads to the formation of olivines and ferrites that improve the mechanical strength of fired briquettes.

    Se estudia la influencia de las microestructuras formadas sobre la resistencia mecánica de mineral de hierro aglomerado con serpentina. Se deduce que la microestructura formada depende de la temperatura de sinterización, de la basicidad y del valor porcentual de serpentina, principalmente. Las fases mineralógicas presentes se cuantificaron utilizando la técnica de conteo por puntos. En briquetas acidas (CaO/SiO2 = 0,3 sinterizadas a 1.275, 1.300 y 1.325 °C, se encontró que la serpentina induce la formación de magnesio-ferritas que traen, como consecuencia, una disminución de la resistencia mecánica, mientras que, a la temperatura de sinterización de 1.250 °C, la aparición de escorias vítreas es la causa principal de la disminución de resistencia. En el caso de briquetas básicas (CaO/SiO2 = 1,2, la adición de serpentina produce la formación de olivinas y calcio-ferritas que originan un aumento de la resistencia mecánica de los sinterizados.

    Full Text Available Se estudió la deformación en aceros de alto contenido de carbono trefilados en frío, sobre el comportamiento mecánico y de fractura. La deformación promueve fenómenos de disolución de la cementita en la perlita, alcanzando alta resistencia y ductilidad, lo que permite aplicarlos en usos críticos como cables de grúas. Para estudiar el comportamiento mecánico y a la fractura, se estudian muestras de dos alambres sometidas a torsión hasta rotura. Estos presentan distinto comportamiento: uno sufrió fractura plana (normal y otro fractura delaminada. Se efectúa un estudio estructural mediante microscopía óptica y electrónica de barrido. Los resultados obtenidos muestran la presencia del fenómeno de rizado (curling. Además, se realizan ensayos de análisis térmico diferencial y simulación termodinámica aplicando Fact Sage, para analizar la estabilidad de carburos. Se corroboró la precipitación de carburos épsilon que ocurre por difusión de carbono en la interfaz ferrita-perlita, justificando el incremento de la resistencia mecánica.

    1998-05-01

    Full Text Available The complexity of the hot deformation behaviour of the ferrite and austenite in a duplex structure is increased as compared with that of single phase ferritic or austenitic steels. Important factors are: the spatial phase distribution with respect to the direction of the imposed deformation, the codeformation of both phases having considerably different mechanical properties, and the nature of the interface between austenite and ferrite. In the present study, the influence of these factors on the crack formation during the hot deformation is analyzed.

    El comportamiento frente al conformado en caliente de la ferrita y de la austenita, en una estructura dúplex, es muy diferente al que presentan ambas fases por separado en los aceros monofásicos austeníticos o ferríticos. A ello contribuyen, entre otros, la distribución espacial de las fases con respecto a la deformación impuesta, la codeformación de dos fases, con propiedades mecánicas muy diferentes, y la naturaleza de la intercara. En el presente trabajo se analiza la influencia de estos factores en la formación de daño bajo condiciones de deformación en caliente.

    The effect of mechanical treatment in a planetary mill on the microstructure and electrical properties of tin dioxide based varistor ceramics in the system SnO{sub 2}-Co{sub 3}O{sub 4}-Cr{sub 2}O{sub 3}-Sb{sub 2}O{sub 5} sintered in the range 1150-1450 {sup 0}C was studied. The mechanical treatment leads to an increase in shrinkage, decrease in porosity, decrease in sample diameter, change in colour of the sintered samples from grey to black and enhancement of nonlinearity. For the sample sintered at 1350 {sup 0}C the mechanical treatment enhances the nonlinearity coefficient from 11 to 31 and decreases the electric field E{sub 1} (at 10{sup -3} A cm{sup -2}) from 3500 to 2800 V cm{sup -1}. The observed changes in physical properties are explained in terms of an additional size reduction of oxide particles and a better mixing of oxide powder followed by the formation of potential barriers at the grain boundaries throughout the whole sample. In spite of the low porosity, the low-field electrical conductivity of mechanically treated ceramics is significantly increased with the growth of relative humidity. A higher humidity sensitivity is found for mechanically treated ceramics with higher barrier height and higher nonlinearity coefficient.

    The circuits and electronic equipment use protective devices against voltage transients. In this work the Aluminium/Oxide structure rich in Silicon/Silicon is presented as another option in the field of transient suppressors devices. Some devices used in the suppression of voltage transients are: zinc oxide varistors, of silicon carbide varistors, selenium cells, and Zener diodes. The Al/SRO/Si structure presents conductive properties due to the presence of excess Silicon in the SRO film. Varying the reacting gases ratio (Ro=N{sub 2}O/SiH{sub 4}) during the growth of the film of Oxide Rich in Silicon (SRO), the conductivity of the material can be varied. The SRO turns out to be of great importance for the suppressor device of transients device that is pretended to be obtained in the present work due to its non-ohmic behavior. The Al/SRO/Si device behaves of several ways depending on the characteristics of the SRO and the silicon substrate. It has been found that one of these behaviors is as a of voltage transients suppressor. Verifying its behavior as transient suppressor, the effects of the film thickness, the area and the excess of silicon of the device were studied, for this purpose the characteristic I-V was obtained, and the obtention of some parameters in DC. In the present work the SRO was obtained by means of LPCVD (Low Pressure Chemical Vapor Deposition), initially a C-V characterization was made to obtain an indicative parameter of excess silicon, such as: permittivity of the SRO film. Also, the refraction index was obtained, which is an indicative parameter of the presence of excess Silicon. Once having the certainty of the presence of excess silicon it was proceed to obtain the I-V characteristic of the Al/SRO/Si structure as a device. The behavior of the Al/SRO/Si structure was analyzed with different parameters, such as: Ro, thickness of the SOR, areas.

    In this paper the preparation process and optical characterization of pure and Al3+ doped zinc oxide (Al:ZnO) coatings will be presented. ZnO based materials have been studied extensively due to their potential applications in optoelectronic devices as conductive gas sensors, transparent conductive, electrodes, solar cell windows, varistors, UVfilters or photovoltaic cells. It is II-VI semiconductor with wide-band gap of 3.37 eV and large exciton binding energy of 60meV. It is possible to improve the conductivity of ZnO coating by intentionally doping ZnO with aluminium ions during preparation process. Such transparent and conducting thin films, known as AZO (Aluminium Zinc Oxide) films, are very good candidate for application as transparent conducting materials in many optoelectronic devices. The well-known sol-gel method is used for preparation of solution, coated on glass substrates by dip coating process. Prepared samples were investigated by Raman and UV-VIS spectroscopy. Transmittance as well as specular and diffuse reflectance spectroscopy methods were used for studies of optical parameters. We found that Al admixture influences on optical bandgap of ZnO.

    The Vivitron tandem is a large electrostatic accelerator comprising a Van de Graaff generator designed to reach terminal voltages of around 30 MV. The machine is limited at rather lower nominal voltages (about 20 MV) due to the sensitivity of the insulating column structure to transient overvoltages. These are induced by electrical discharges in compressed SF{sub 6}. This thesis first aims at analysing the fundamental reasons of electrical discharges in order to limit the probability of their occurrence. Then we simulate the transient overvoltages induced and present some improvements which may lead to a stable behaviour of the Vivitron at nominal voltages higher than 20 MV. Initially we deduce discharge onset voltages and actual breakdown field limitations in the different gap geometries from analysis of possible breakdown mechanisms in compressed SF{sub 6}. In a second part, some electrical characteristics of the insulating column structure are measured at high voltage. Fast rising oscillating waves induced by sparking in the Vivitron, along with the associated energies,are determined in the third part. The last part deals with new surge protections of the insulating column structure. Spark gaps with precise onset voltage and optimized shielding electrodes are discussed. ZnO-based varistors designed for operation at very high fields have also been developed in order to reduce transient overvoltage values. (author). 122 refs.

  9. Performance of Surge Arrester Installation to Enhance Protection

    Full Text Available The effects of abnormal voltages on power system equipment and appliances in the home have raise concern as most of the equipments are very expensive. Each piece of electrical equipment in an electrical system needs to be protected from surges. To prevent damage to electrical equipment, surge protection considerations are paramount to a well designed electrical system. Lightning discharges are able to damage electric and electronic devices that usually have a low protection level and these are influenced by current or voltage pulses with a relatively low energy, which are induced by lightning currents. This calls for proper designed and configuration of surge arresters for protection on the particular appliances. A more efficient non-linear surge arrester, metal oxide varistor (MOV, should be introduced to handle these surges. This paper shows the selection of arresters laying more emphasis on the arresters for residential areas. In addition, application and installation of the arrester will be determined by the selected arrester. This paper selects the lowest rated surge arrester as it provides insulation when the system is under stress. It also selected station class and distribution class of arresters as they act as an open circuit under normal system operation and to bring the system back to its normal operation mode as the transient voltage is suppressed. Thus, reduces the risk of damage, which the protection measures can be characterized, by the reduction value of the economic loss to an acceptable level.

    Full Text Available Surge voltage distribution across a HV transformer winding due to appearance of very fast rise time (rise time of order 1 μs transient voltages is highly non-uniform along the length of the winding for initial time instant of occurrence of surge. In order to achieve nearly uniform initial time instant voltage distribution along the length of the HV winding, investigations have been carried out on transformer model winding. By connecting similar type of metal oxide varistors across sections of HV transformer model winding, it is possible to improve initial time instant surge voltage distribution across length of the HV transformer winding. Transformer windings with α values 5.3, 9.5 and 19 have been analyzed. The experimental studies have been carried out using high speed oscilloscope of good accuracy. The initial time instant voltage distribution across sections of winding with MOV remains nearly uniform along length of the winding. Also results of fault diagnostics carried out with and without connection of MOVs across sections of winding are reported.

    In this article, a novel and accurate scheme for fault detection, classification and fault distance estimation for a fixed series compensated transmission line is proposed. The proposed scheme is based on artificial neural network (ANN) and metal oxide varistor (MOV) energy, employing Levenberg-Marquardt training algorithm. The novelty of this scheme is the use of MOV energy signals of fixed series capacitors (FSC) as input to train the ANN. Such approach has never been used in any earlier fault analysis algorithms in the last few decades. Proposed scheme uses only single end measurement energy signals of MOV in all the 3 phases over one cycle duration from the occurrence of a fault. Thereafter, these MOV energy signals are fed as input to ANN for fault distance estimation. Feasibility and reliability of the proposed scheme have been evaluated for all ten types of fault in test power system model at different fault inception angles over numerous fault locations. Real transmission system parameters of 3-phase 400 kV Wardha-Aurangabad transmission line (400 km) with 40 % FSC at Power Grid Wardha Substation, India is considered for this research. Extensive simulation experiments show that the proposed scheme provides quite accurate results which demonstrate complete protection scheme with high accuracy, simplicity and robustness.

    Full Text Available The microstructure and electrical properties of varistors composed of (95-x ZnO + x Pr6O11 + 5 CoO (ZPC, (x = 0.1, 0.5 and 1.0 and sintered at 1300 and 1350 °C, were investigated. According to X-ray diffraction, several phases (ZnO, Pr2O3 and Pr2CoO4 are present when x = 1.0. Using Scanning Electron Microscopy, all of these compositions contain precipitates. These phases are important regarding the development of the microstructure and the electrical properties. The samples with x = 0.1 introduce the best nonohmic behavior (α = 9.0, however when x = 0.5 the electrical properties are highly degraded due to the small quantity of effective barriers. The density of superficial states N IS and donor concentration Nd decreases with Pr6O11 addition. The decrease in the donor concentration is attributed to the annihilation of the donor defects according to the transformation of praseodymium oxides from Pr6O11 to Pr2O3.

    Soraia Simões Sandes

    Full Text Available Resumo A aplicação de revestimentos de ligas de níquel é comumente realizada na indústria de petróleo e gás para aumento da vida de equipamentos em ambientes agressivos, dado que este procedimento melhora a resistência à corrosão, sem um aumento significativo do custo de produção quando comparado com equipamentos maciços fabricados com outras ligas. Normalmente, as juntas são soldadas pelos processos de eletrodos revestidos, MIG/MAG ou TIG. Neste aspecto, o processo eletroescória realiza deposições com elevada energia de soldagem e baixa diluição, podendo ser uma opção interessante, uma vez que proporciona uma elevada produtividade, permitindo a soldagem com aplicação de apenas uma camada. O presente trabalho avalia propriedades mecânicas, microestruturais e de corrosão de revestimentos de liga de níquel 625 depositada em aço carbono ASTM A516 Grau 70 pelo processo eletroescória, tanto na condição como soldado quanto tratado termicamente. A deposição foi realizada com uma e duas camadas sobre chapas de dimensão 50x400x400 mm, na posição plana e energia de soldagem média de 11,7 kJ/mm. Após a soldagem realizou-se tratamento térmico a 620°C por 10 horas, sendo esta condição comparada ao estado de como soldado. Os ensaios de dobramento não indicaram evidências de defeitos. A avaliação microestrutural realizada por microscopia ótica (MO, eletrônica de varredura (MEV e eletrônica de transmissão (MET mostrou uma microestrutura austenítica para o depósito com pequena fração volumétrica de fases secundárias e o tratamento térmico de alívio de tensões não promoveu mudanças significativas nas propriedades. Na região de grãos grosseiros da zona termicamente afetada (RGGZTA foi observada a ocorrência de ferrita pró-eutetóide, perlita e bainita para o depósito com 1 camada e basicamente ferrita e perlita refinadas para o deposito com 2 passes devido às baixas taxas de resfriamento

    Full Text Available Os aços inoxidáveis duplex (AID apresentam em sua microestrutura ferrita e austenita, de modo a aliar boas propriedades mecânicas e resistência à corrosão. Estes materiais possuem grande aplicação na indústria petroquímica, sendo o UNS S31803 um dos mais conhecidos. Existem poucos trabalhos referentes ao estudo da influência da restrição na soldagem da junta na formação de Widmanstätten. Logo, este trabalho tem como objetivo analisar a influência da restrição no balanceamento de fases, na morfologia da austenita, na microdureza e na tenacidade da Zona Afetada pelo Calor (ZAC e da Zona Fundida (ZF. Foram realizadas soldagens em juntas tipo V utilizando eletrodo revestido AWS E2209-17com dois níveis de energia: 15 kJ/cm e 20 kJ/cm, com e sem restrição. De maneira geral, houve maior quantidade de ferrita nos passes de acabamento em relação aos passes de enchimento e de raiz. Foram observadas maiores quantidades de Widmanstätten nas condições soldadas com restrição. A ZAC apresentou uma microestrutura mais grosseira nos passes de acabamento. No entanto, não foram observadas diferenças significativas nas microestruturas quando comparadas as condições com e sem restrição. As condições que apresentaram maior quantidade de Widmanstätten obtiveram menores níveis de microdureza. Não foram observadas diferenças na energia absorvida na ZAC e ZF.Duplex stainless steels present ferrite and austenite in their microstructure in order to join good mechanical properties and corrosion resistance. These materials are very used in petrochemical industry, being the DSS UNS S31803 one of the most commercially known. There were not much published literature to study the influence of the precipitation of Widmanstätten austenite in joins with some restriction. This work has as objective to analyze the influence of the restriction in the phase balance of austenite and ferrite, in the morphology of the austenite, in the

    Full Text Available Os aços inoxidáveis Duplex (AID aliam uma excelente resistência à corrosão com elevada resistência mecânica devido à fina microestrutura bifásica composta por quantidades similares de ferrita (δ e austenita (γ. Portanto, estas ligas são utilizados em tubulações e equipamentos industriais onde se requer elevada relação resistência/peso, especialmente em empreendimentos de construção e montagem off-shore. Entretanto, as condições operacionais, na soldagem de campo, podem promover um significativo desbalanço microestrutural destas fases, resultando em decréscimo das propriedades mencionadas. A inspeção com o ferritoscópio é uma avaliação normalmente utilizada nestas atividades. Durante a avaliação com esta técnica pode ocorrer a rejeição da junta soldada quando o metal de solda se encontra com valores de ferrita fora das faixas estabelecidas pelas especificações de projeto. Assim, torna-se importante a análise destas juntas, com outras técnicas complementares, tal como a utilização das réplicas metalográficas. Este fato motivou a avaliação da proporção de fases em spools de AID de espessuras relativamente finas, soldados no campo, comparando-se as técnicas não destrutivas descritas. Os resultados denotam valores semelhantes, contudo o resultado pode ser influenciado pela forma e condições superficiais da junta soldada.Duplex stainless steels are high strength and corrosion resistant alloys, whose properties are devoted to the fine microstructure composed by similar amounts of ferrite and austenite and also to the high concentrations of Cr, Mo and N in solid solution. Not for coincidence, duplex steels are extensively used in chemical and petrochemical industries. However, welding operations conditions can promote the unbalance of the ferrite/austenite proportions mainly in the welding metal, with decrease of the properties mentioned. For this reason, non destructive measurements of ferrite content

    1996-08-01

    Full Text Available The color metallography by tint etching allows the identification and quantification by optical microscopy of phases and constituents present in the microstructure of a great number alloys. The principle of this technique consists of the build up of an interference film on the alloy surface as consequence of electrochemical reactions between the metallic surface and the tint etching reagent. The application of the tint etching to the metallographic analysis of stainless steels enable the identification and quantification, by image analysis, of secondary phases, as ferrite in the austenitic stainless steels, or secondary austenite and sigma phase in the duplex stainless steels.

    La metalografía en color mediante la técnica de ataque coloreado permite la identificación y cuantificación, por el contraste de color, de diversas fases y constituyentes presentes en la microestructura de un gran número de aleaciones. La técnica consiste en depositar una película de interferencia en la superficie del material como consecuencia de reacciones electroquímicas entre el metal y el reactivo de ataque coloreado. La aplicación de la técnica de ataque coloreado en los aceros inoxidables permite la identificación y cuantificación, mediante análisis de imagen, de fases secundarias como la ferrita en los aceros inoxidables austeníticos o la austenita secundaria y la fase sigma en los aceros inoxidables dúplex.

    1998-12-01

    Full Text Available Throughout this work, a study on niobium carbonitrides formation and its hardening effect in a commercial hot strip microalloyed steel is presented. Optic and electron micrographs were obtained while mechanical tests and indirect models allow to predict samples yield strength, taking into account the steel composition and its structural characteristics. The results showed an extended precipitation on austenite boundary cells during the last thermomechanical processing stages, which probably achieved a considerable contribution to the hardening by dispersion in the material studied. Otherwise, no evidence of precipitation in ferrite by means of transmission electron microscopy (TEM was observed. A poor interphase precipitation was detected in about 10 per cent of the total observed zones with no appreciated contribution to the steel hardness.

    Se presenta un estudio sobre el origen de los carbonitruros de niobio y su efecto en el endurecimiento de un acero comercial microaleado y laminado en caliente. Para tal fin se utilizaron micrografías ópticas y electrónicas; así como también ensayos mecánicos y modelos indirectos que permitieron predecir el límite elástico teniendo en cuenta la composición del acero y sus características estructurales. Los resultados mostraron una extensa precipitación en la austenita durante las últimas fases del proceso de laminación siendo ésta responsable del principal aporte al endurecimiento por dispersión en el material investigado. No hubo evidencias de precipitación en la ferrita por observaciones al microscopio electrónico de transmisión y sólo una escasa precipitación interfásica fue detectada en un 10 % de las zonas observadas sin una apreciable contribución al endurecimiento del acero.

    Full Text Available Resumen Los aceros inoxidables dúplex poseen una microestructura dual (ferrita y austenita con contenidos aproximadamente iguales y se caracterizan por tener buena soldabilidad, buenas propiedades mecánicas y una alta resistencia a la corrosión generalizada y localizada. Gracias a estas características, estos aceros son los principales materiales a emplear en cañerías con altas exigencias, ampliamente utilizados en varias industrias, principalmente la petroquímica. Dichas propiedades están controladas por la composición química, el equilibrio microestructural y la ausencia de compuestos intermetálicos. El objetivo de este trabajo fue estudiar la influencia de la composición química del metal de aporte y el calor aportado sobre la microestructura y las propiedades mecánicas en juntas soldadas de cañerías de acero inoxidable dúplex. El metal base utilizado fue un acero inoxidable dúplex UNS S31803 de 8” de diámetro y 8,18 mm de espesor y los metales de aporte fueron dos alambres tubulares que depositan aceros inoxidables dúplex y lean dúplex (AWS A5.22: E2209T1-1 y E2209T1-G, mediante el proceso de soldadura semi-automático bajo protección gaseosa, soldados con alto y bajo calor aportado. De cada probeta se extrajeron muestras donde se determinó la composición química, se realizó la caracterización microestructural y se determinaron las propiedades mecánicas (dureza, tracción y Charpy-V.

    Full Text Available Resumo O presente trabalho visa investigar a microestrutura formada na soldagem dissimilar entre chapas de aços inoxidáveis ferríticos AISI 410S e aços inoxidáveis austeníticos AISI 304L pelo processo friction stir welding. A soldagem foi realizada com o ajuste dos seguintes parâmetros: rotação 450 rpm; velocidade de soldagem de 1,0 mm/s; e força axial 40 kN. O aço AISI 410S foi posicionado no lado de avanço enquanto que o aço AISI 304L foi posicionado no lado de retrocesso. A análise consistiu de preparação metalográfica e caracterização microestrutural por microscopia ótica e microscopia eletrônica de varredura. Para o aço AISI 410S foi observada a formação de martensita associada com ferrita na zona de mistura (ZM, zona termomecanicamente afetada (ZTMA e na zona afetada pelo calor (ZAC. As características do processo de soldagem FSW resultaram num refino de grão para o aço inoxidável ferrítico, posicionado no lado de avanço, tanto na ZM quanto nas ZTMA e ZAC. O mesmo comportamento não foi observado para o lado austenítico.

    Full Text Available In order to model the elasto-plastic behaviour of polycrystalline dual-phase steel microstructures (ferrite/martensite, uniaxial tension is simulated using a 3-D finite element code. Calculations are performed for a representative dual-phase cubic volume discretised in 3375 elements, using either plane or free-face boundary conditions. The effects of morphology and grain number on the stress-strain macroscopic curve and on the strain distribution are analised. The results confirm the efficiency of the method for predicting the elasto-plastic behaviour of dual-phase steels. The simulations are aimed to be used for the microstructural design of new dual-phase steels.

    Mediante el Método de los Elementos Finitos (MEF se han realizado simulaciones del comportamiento elastoplástico de estructuras bifásicas policristalinas con un mismo comportamiento elástico y diferente comportamiento plástico, representativas de aceros bifásicos tipo “dual-phase” (ferrita/martensita. Las simulaciones se realizan en 3 dimensiones, con diferentes condiciones de contorno: caras planas, y caras libres. Se analiza el efecto de la morfología y del número de los granos de ambas fases contenidos en la muestra analizada sobre la curva macroscópica tensión-deformación y sobre varios aspectos micromecánicos de la predicción, tales como la distribución de las deformaciones en las dos fases, la heterogeneidad de las deformaciones locales o las tensiones residuales a escala mesoscópica. Los resultados orientan sobre los métodos más eficientes para la simulación a diferentes escalas del comportamiento plástico de materiales bifásicos y pueden servir de ayuda para el diseño microestructural de nuevos materiales.

  3. Avaliação da Influência de Tratamentos Térmicos Pós-Soldagem Sobre a Microestrutura e Propriedades Mecânicas de Juntas de um Aço API 5L X70Q

    Full Text Available ResumoAços que atendem à norma API 5L são aplicados na construção de dutos e há grande interesse naqueles de maior resistência, como o grau API 5L X70Q. Ainda são escassos os estudos relacionados a tubos sem costura. Durante a montagem, os tubos podem ser soldados por eletrodos revestidos (SMAW e eventualmente sofrer aquecimento indutivo para adequação à topografia do terreno, processos que podem alterar a microestrutura das juntas. Neste trabalho foram obtidas juntas soldadas pelo processo SMAW, a partir de tubo sem costura grau API 5L X70Q. As juntas foram submetidas a tratamentos térmicos pós-soldagem nas temperaturas 920 °C e 600 °C. Foram realizados ensaios de tração, impacto Charpy e microdureza, além de caracterização metalográfica nas amostras de metal base e nas juntas como soldadas e após os tratamentos térmicos. O tratamento térmico a 920 °C promoveu a formação de estrutura ferrita/perlita, com consequente redução na resistência mecânica das juntas a valores inferiores aos especificados para o grau X70Q. Porém, o tratamento térmico a 600 °C mostrou-se benéfico devido à redução da fração volumétrica dos constituintes martensita/austenita e martensita-austenita-bainita, sem reduzir de forma significativa a resistência mecânica e com relativo ganho na tenacidade ao impacto na ZTA e na ZF.

    Full Text Available Este trabalho teve como objetivo avaliar o efeito produzido pela refusão superficial por meio de uma tocha plasma na resistência à fadiga de um aço inoxidável martensítico macio utilizado na fabricação de rotores de turbinas hidráulicas. As refusões foram efetuadas na superfície deste tipo de aço utilizando corrente contínua e pulsada sendo os ensaios de fadiga realizados por meio de flexão em quatro pontos nas tensões de 750, 850 e 1000 MPa. Foi constatado um melhor desempenho da condição refundida em relação ao material sem este tratamento. Não foram constatadas diferenças significativas de desempenho à fadiga para as refusões utilizando corrente contínua e convencional. A presença de tensões residuais compressivas decorrentes da transformação martensítica em parte justifica o melhor desempenho da condição refundida. Análises microscópicas complementares revelaram que o menor desempenho à fadiga do material base sem refusão estava associado também à presença de defeitos (microrechupes provenientes do processo de fundição os quais promoviam à nucleação de trincas de fadiga junto aos mesmos. A presença de ferrita delta, situada junto às ripas de martensita orientadas a 45º em relação à direção de carregamento, promoveu a nucleação das trincas de fadiga nos corpos de prova com tratamento de refusão superficial.

    Full Text Available A dilatometric contraction at the onset of the austenitization has been detected by means of high resolution dilatometric analysis. This anomaly was associated with the pearlite dissolution process. A significant effect of pearlite interlamellar spacing on the shape of the dilatometric anomaly has been found. A clear dilatometric anomaly can only be detected when a fine pearlite is present in the starting microstructure of the steel. The identification of the temperature at which pearlite dissolution finishes would make it possible to select the most suitable intercritical temperature to obtain ferrite + martensite dual phase microstructures with an optimum combination of mechanical properties. In the presente work, the influence of starting pearlite morphology on the dilatometric response associated with the pearlite dissolution process during continuous heating has been studied in 0.11C-0.50Mn low carbon steel.

    Por medio del análisis dilatométrico de alta resolución, se ha detectado la aparición de una contracción dilatométrica asociada con el proceso de disolución de la perlita, que únicamente aparece cuando la microestructura inicial presenta perlita con un espaciado interlaminar fino. Esta contracción dilatométrica desaparece cuando la estructura inicial presenta una perlita grosera o de mayor espaciado interlaminar, impidiendo así la selección de las temperaturas del intercrítico más apropiadas para la obtención de microestructuras dual de ferrita + martensita con las mejores propiedades mecánicas. En este trabajo se estudia la influencia de la morfología de la perlita inicial de un acero 0,11C-0,50Mn sobre la respuesta dilatométrica asociada al proceso de disolución de dicha fase en calentamiento continuo.

    2014-09-01

    Full Text Available Neste trabalho, tubos de aço inoxidável supermartensítico (AISM foram soldados por fricção radial (SFR e suas propriedades de corrosão foram estudadas através de ensaios de polarização anódica em solução de 3,5 % de NaCl e da técnica eletroquímica de reativação potenciocinética de ciclo duplo (DL-EPR. As medidas foram realizadas em amostras extraídas de diferentes regiões da solda SFR, i.e., metal de base (MB, interface de soldagem e anel consumível (AC. As propriedades de corrosão foram discutidas em termos da microestrutura metalúrgica resultante em cada região. A precipitação de carbonetos de Cr que ocorre durante o tratamento de revenimento causa um empobrecimento em Cr substancial na estrutura revenida do MB (Ir/Ia = 54,22%. Por outro lado, as regiões do AC e da interface de soldagem, que tiveram suas microestruturas transformadas e seus precipitados de carboneto de Cr redissolvidos pelo ciclo termomecânico de soldagem SFR, apresentam um baixo grau de empobrecimento em Cr (Ir/Ia < 1%. A microestrutura do AC, composta de uma mistura de martensita temperada e austenita retida, apresenta maior resistência à corrosão localizada do que a estrutura revenida do MB. Também foi observado que a ferrita-δ diminui a resistência à corrosão por pites na região da interface de soldagem.

    Full Text Available Tin oxide, is a compound used in many technological applications among them as gas sensor and in the production of varistors, electronic devices, electrocatalitic electrodes and fotovoltaic cells, among others. In this work the controlled precipitation method was used to synthesize tin oxide of nanometric size using tin sulfate precursor. The control of different stages of the synthesis process was carried out through the variation of the system pH registrations, potentiometric titration,; This curve contain information on the different processes that take place in the system and it can be used to guarantee the process reproducibility. Additionally we propose a mechanism to explain the nucleation of solid phase in the solution. The hydrolysis and policondensation reactions are very important for this mechanism. Precipitate washing with an ethylendiamine solution permitted eliminated of SO4 2- and it permitted to obtain the tin oxide as the principal crystalline phase at room temperature. The characteristics of the obtained ceramic powder were determined using infrared espectroscopy (FTIR, X-ray diffraction (XRD, and transmission electron microscopy (TEM.

El control de las diferentes etapas del proceso de síntesis se realizó a través de los registros de variación de pH, valoración potenciométrica, del sistema. Con base a esta información y el estudio de espectroscopía infrarroja realizada en la fase sólida, a diferentes valores de pH, se propone un mecanismo de formación de las part

    Full Text Available Tin oxide is an n type semiconductor material with a high covalent behavior. Mass transport in this oxide depends on the surface state promoted by atmosphere or by the solid solution of aliovalent oxide doping. The sintering and grain grow of this type of oxide powder is then controlled by atmosphere and by extrinsic oxygen vacancy formation. For pure SnO2 powder the surface state depends only in the interaction of atmosphere molecules with the SnO2 surface. Inert atmosphere like argon promotes oxygen vacancy formation at the surface due to the reduction of SnO 2 to SnO at surface and liberation of oxygen molecules forming an oxygen vacancy. As a consequence, surface diffusion is enhanced leading to grain coarsening, but no densification. Oxygen atmosphere inhibits the SnO2 reduction decreasing the surface oxygen vacancy concentration. Additions of dopants with lower valence at sintering temperature create extrinsic charged oxygen vacancies that promote mass transport at grain boundary leading to densification and grain growth of this polycrystalline oxide. Cobalt and niobium doped SnO2 ceramics exhibit varistor behavior, which can be applied in electronics. Moreover, SnO2 ceramics are chemically inert and can be applied in form of crucibles to melt some optical glasses.Óxido de estanho é um material semicondutor do tipo n com comportamento altamente covalente. O transporte de massa neste óxido depende do estado da superfície promovido pela atmosfera ou pela solução sólida devida a dopagem de óxido aliovalente. A sinterização e o crescimento de grão deste tipo de óxido na forma de pó é então controlado pela atmosfera e pela formação de vacância de oxigênio extrínseca. Para o pó de SnO2 puro o estado da superfície depende somente da interação das moléculas da atmosfera com a superfície do SnO2. Atmosferas inertes como a de argônio promovem a formação de vacâncias de oxigênio na superfície devido a redução de SnO2

    Full Text Available The (Sn,TiO2 system has a great interest due to its technological applications such as gas sensor and varistor. Although the thermodynamic properties and the kinetics of spinoidal decomposition in this system have been extensively studied, the general properties and applications of SnO2 – TiO2 binary compositions have been not investigated yet in depth. On the other hand, little work has been done to optimize the synthesis methods to obtain (Sn,TiO2 ceramic powders, with pre – determinate physical and chemical characteristics. In this work the ceramic powders has been obtained by coprecipitation and polymeric precursor (Pechini methods. The different physical chemistry phenomena that occurred during the synthesis were discussed. The (Sn,TiO2 ceramic powders were characterized with X- ray diffraction (XRD, thermal analysis (DTA/ TG and scanning electron microscopy (SEM. The knowledge about of steps and variables of synthesis process acquired with development of this work, we permited to obtain (Sn, TiO2 nanometers particles to low temperatures: to 450°C for coprecipitation method and to 600°C for Pechini method. The spinodal decomposition that ocurr to 900°C was discussed also.El sistema (Sn,TiO2, puro o dopado, tiene gran interés por las potencialidades tecnológicas que presenta como sensor de gas y varistor.

    Highlights: • Optical and electrical properties of ZnO are influenced by lanthanide doping. • Optical and electrical properties of ZnO are influenced by lanthanide positioning. • Yb is incorporated in the O{sub h} sites of the wurtzite structure. • There is not Yb{sub 2}O{sub 3} clustering or segregation for treatments below 800 °C. - Abstract: Lanthanide doped ZnO are interesting materials for optical and electrical applications. The wide band gap of this semiconductor makes it transparent in the visible range (E{sub gap} = 3.2 eV), allowing a sharp emission from intra shell transition from the lanthanides. From the electrical side, ZnO is a widely used material in varistors and its electrical properties can be tailored by the inclusion of lanthanides. Both applications are influenced by the location of the lanthanides, grain boundaries or lattice inclusion. Yb doped ZnO samples obtained by wet chemistry route were annealed at different temperatures and characterized by Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM), X-ray Diffraction (XRD), Rietveld refinement of XRD data, and X-ray Absorption Fine Structure (XAFS). These techniques allowed to follow the changes occurred in the matrix and the Yb environment. The use of the Cauchy continuous wavelet transform allowed identifying a second coordination shell composed of Zn atoms, supporting the observations from XRD Rietveld refinement and XAFS fittings. The information obtained confirmed the incorporation of Yb in O{sub h} sites of the wurtzite structure without Yb{sub 2}O{sub 3} clustering in the lattice.

    Full text: Zn O is a promising material for a range of optoelectronics applications, due to its direct wide band gap (E{sub g} ∼3.3 eV at 300 K) and large exciton binding energy (60 MeV). Its applications include UV light emitters, varistors, surface acoustic wave devices, piezoelectric transducers, and chemical and gas sensing. Rare-earth activation of phosphors has long been seen as an effective process since coupling energy into the rare-earth-ion site, either by ionization, charge exchange or a resonance energy process, results in light production. It is reported that Europium modifies the response thermoluminescence (Tl) for pure zinc oxide, when is irradiated with X-ray, created a peak at 365 degrees C. In this work, Zn O:Eu phosphors were synthesized by a chemical method. Some samples were exposed to beta particle irradiation for doses ranging from 1 up to 100 Gy. Tl response as a function of dose is linear throughout the studied dose range. The glow curve exhibits three maxima, centered at 176, 279 and 340 degrees C. The reusability studies obtained after ten repeated cycles of annealing irradiation readout for the Zn O:Eu shows that the variation in the Tl response is ten percent and tends to stabilization. The results indicate that these new Zn O:Eu phosphors are promising detectors and dosimeters for beta radiation. The structural and morphological characterization was carried out by X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy, respectively. (Author)

    Full Text Available A description is given of ultrasonic equipment developed at the I.E.T.c.c. (Instituto Eduardo Torroja de la Construcción y del Cemento laboratory. This equipment is an addition to the facilities which the Metrology Department of the I.E.T.c.c. possessed, to undertake non destructive tests. The most significant features of this new equipment are: the possibility to work with varying frequencies (20 to 200 kc/sec; the use of both barium titanate and ferrite transducers; heterodyne auditive control of the marking frequency; and optional possibility of observing the incoming impulse both in the form of a damped high frequency wave, and as a low frequency, highly precise differentiated impulse. A revision of the theoretical basis involved in the impulse method has been carried out, and improvements have been also introduced in the more current applications in connection with mass and structural concrete, and even laboratory specimens. The revised method of testing has inherent limitations typical of these non destructive systems. These limitations have already been mentioned in earlier papers.En este trabajo se da la descripción de un nuevo aparato ultrasónico desarrollado en los laboratorios del I.E.T.C.C.

    Full Text Available We report the production of anisotropic permanent magnets of barium hexaferrite using rolling scale (siderurgical waste as starting material. A facility was designed and constructed and further tested for the industrial production of the anisotropic permanent magnets. The characteristics of both the ferrite powder and the compacts resulting of pressuring and sintering processes are described. In different stages parameters as grinding time and temperature were controlled. The samples were structurally and magnetically characterized. X-ray diffraction and Mössbauer spectroscopy were used for phase identification, while scanning electron microscopy allowed the determination of the average grain size. The magnetic behavior was also measured. This work proves that the ferric oxide produced from rolling scale of the national siderurgical industry can be used to obtain anisotropic material. Initial technological parameters of the process are proposed.

    Full Text Available Resumo Pós de Pb(Zr0,53Ti0,47O3 (PZT e Fe2CoO4 (FCO, foram sintetizados separadamente pelo método Pechini e misturados em ultrassom, nas proporções molares 80/20 e 50/50 (PZT/FCO. Os compósitos preparados foram prensados e submetidos à sinterização em forno convencional e sinterização ultrarrápida assistida por micro-ondas. A caracterização estrutural e microestrutural das amostras foram realizadas por difração de raios X e microscopia eletrônica de varredura, respectivamente. Medidas de constante dielétrica em função da temperatura, resistividade elétrica e coeficiente de acoplamento magnetoelétrico foram também realizadas. Os resultados evidenciaram que o método de mistura do PZT com a FCO por ultrassom foi rápido e eficiente, gerando, após sinterização, compósitos particulados com conectividade global (0-3 e distribuição uniforme de grãos da fase ferromagnética (FCO na matriz ferroelétrica (PZT. Da análise estrutural, verificou-se que a sinterização por micro-ondas propiciou um arranjo diferenciado no esquema de conectividade local na amostra (1-3 e (2-3, relacionada com a intensificação dos processos de difusão que ocorrem nesse tipo de sinterização principalmente em sistemas nanométricos. Pelos altos valores de resistividade obtidos, comprovou-se que a integridade das fases foi conservada nos dois métodos de sinterização, sendo mais eficiente na sinterização por micro-ondas, característica que garantiu o comportamento magnetoelétrico em todos os compósitos estudados neste trabalho. Os valores do campo Hmax foram dependentes da concentração da fase ferrita e da sinterização; para a composição 80/20 de 1,4 e 1,9 kOe, e para 50/50 de 3,5 e 3,0 kOe nas amostras sinterizadas por micro-ondas e convencionalmente, compatíveis com a literatura e que confirmaram a integridade das fases constituintes PZT e FCO.

  18. Implications of total content of silicon, aluminium, chromium and formation of thin ferrite films on low ductility at high temperature in non oriented electrical steels

    2011-10-01

    Full Text Available This work shows evidence of the implications of total additions of silicon, aluminium and chromium on low ductility during hot rolling in non-oriented electrical steels. This paper explains the reason of ductility loss at temperatures between 950 - 1000°C in electrical steels which exhibit higher Ar3 transformation temperature than C-Mn and microalloyed steels. The empirical equations to determine Ar3 temperature do not consider silicon and aluminium elements. The results show that high content of silicon, aluminium and residual concentration of chromiun considerably increases Ar3 transformation temperature in non-oriented electrical steels. The low ductility at high temperature occurs between Ae3 and Ar3 transformation temperatures. In addition, the results of this work show evidence of thin ferrite films formed near Ar3 temperature and their implications on ductility loss at high temperature.

    Este trabajo muestra evidencia de las implicaciones de la cantidad total de silicio, aluminio y cromo sobre la baja ductilidad en aceros eléctricos durante la laminación en caliente. Este artículo explica la razón de la pérdida de ductilidad a temperaturas entre 950 y 1.000°C en aceros eléctricos. Las ecuaciones empíricas para determinar la temperatura Ar3 no consideran los elementos aluminio y silicio. Los resultados muestran que altos contenidos de silicio, aluminio y la concentración residual de cromo incrementan considerablemente la temperatura de transformación Ar3 en aceros eléctricos de grano no orientado. La baja ductilidad a elevada temperatura ocurre entre las temperaturas de transformación Ae3 y Ar3. Adicionalmente, los resultados de este trabajo muestran evidencia de películas delgadas de ferrita formadas a temperaturas cercanas a Ar3 y sus implicaciones sobre la pérdida de

    Full Text Available Resumo Neste trabalho, investigaram-se efeitos do fenômeno de envelhecimento por deformação em juntas obtidas por soldagem a arco elétrico com proteção gasosa (GMAW, de tubos sem costura de aço API5L X65Q. Corpos de prova (CPs obtidos a partir das juntas soldadas foram submetidos à uma deformação plástica a frio de 3% e posteriormente envelhecidas por 1h a 250°C, de forma a se induzir envelhecimento estático. Buscando avaliar o envelhecimento dinâmico, os CPs foram deformados até 3% e o carregamento foi mantido durante 1h a 250°C. Os CPs envelhecidos foram submetidos a ensaios de tração e amostras representativas foram analisadas ao microscópio óptico e microscópio eletrônico de varredura. Observou-se que o fenômeno modificou a fração volumétrica de constituintes secundários no metal de solda e na ZTA, com aumento na proporção de agregados ferrita-carbonetos. Com relação às propriedades mecânicas, constatou-se que o fenômeno reduziu a razão elástica das juntas soldadas devido a um aumento no limite de resistência, além de aumentar o alongamento total, não prejudicando, portanto, as propriedades mecânicas em tração das juntas soldadas. Ao se comparar o envelhecimento estático com o envelhecimento dinâmico, observou-se que o aumento na capacidade de deformação plástica das juntas soldadas foi maior após envelhecimento estático por deformação.

  20. Synthesis, microstructure and properties of BiFeO3-based multiferroic materials: A review

    Bernardo, M. S.

    2014-02-01

    Full Text Available BiFeO3-based materials are currently one of the most studied multiferroics due to their possible applications at room temperature. However, among the large number of published papers there is much controversy. For example, possibility of synthesizing a pure BiFeO3 phase is still source of discussion in literature. Not even the nature of the binary Bi2O3-Fe2O3 diagram has been clarified yet. The difficulty in controlling the formation of parasite phases reaches the consolidation step. Accordingly, the sintering conditions must be carefully determined both to get dense materials and to avoid bismuth ferrite decomposition. However, the precise conditions to attain dense bismuth ferrite materials are frequently contradictory among different works. As a consequence, the reported properties habitually result opposed and highly irreproducible hampering the preparation of BiFeO3 materials suitable for practical applications. In this context, the purpose of the present review is to summarize the main researches regarding BiFeO3 synthesis, microstructure and properties in order to provide an easier understanding of these materials.Los materiales basados en BiFeO3 son en la actualidad uno de los multiferroicos más estudiados debido a sus posibles aplicaciones a temperatura ambiente. Sin embargo, entre la multitud de trabajos publicados referentes a estos materiales existe mucha controversia. Por ejemplo, la posibilidad de sintetizar una fase BiFeO3 pura es aún objeto de discusión en la bibliografía y la naturaleza de los diagramas de fases del sistema Bi2O3-Fe2O3 aún no está clara. La dificultad para controlar las fases parásitas se extiende al proceso de consolidación por lo que las condiciones de sinterización deben ser cuidadosamente controladas para obtener materiales densos y al mismo tiempo evitar la descomposición de la ferrita. No obstante, las condiciones precisas para obtener materiales densos de BiFeO3 son frecuentemente

    Full Text Available The main objective of the present investigation was to study the susceptibility to hydrogen damage on a type API 5L X52 steel welded by electrical resistance. Several techniques, such as hydrogen permeation and cathodic charging were used. The metallic material was characterized using SEM and TEM. The base metal microstructure was very similar to that one corresponding to the welded area. This microstructure was mainly comprised by ferrite and perlite, differing only in the grain size. Therefore, the susceptibility to hydrogen damage was similar in both cases. It is worth mentioning that the welded area has very small dimensions. Indeed, the fusion zone is only 5 mm wide while the heat affected zone is 1 mm wide. The hydrogen damage observed was mainly in the form of blisters, which were associated to the presence of aluminum rich inclusions. Also, it was noticed partial inclusion dissolution and some matrix attack adjacent to the inclusions.

    En la presente investigación se estudió la susceptibilidad al daño por hidrógeno en un acero API 5L X52 soldado por resistencia eléctrica. Para ello, se emplearon técnicas de permeación y de carga catódica de hidrógeno. El material fue caracterizado mediante microscopía electrónica de barrido y de transmisión. La susceptibilidad al daño por hidrógeno fue similar tanto en el metal base como en el cordón de soldadura. Este comportamiento se vincula a la microestructura homogénea constituida por perlita y ferrita, que presentan ambos, aun cuando existen diferencias en el tamaño de grano. El cordón de soldadura tenía dimensiones muy pequeñas, donde la zona de fusión y la afectada por el calor poseen espesores de 5 mm y 1 mm, respectivamente. El daño inducido por hidrógeno se presentó en forma de ampollas en la superficie del material, asociado, principalmente, a la presencia de inclusiones globulares y semiglobulares ricas en aluminio. Además, se manifestó una disoluci

    Full Text Available Os resultados bem-sucedidos apresentados na literatura acerca da soldagem por atrito com pino não consumível das juntas alumínio-aço, desconsideram o aspecto e formação de defeitos na junta como pontos de referência para sua avaliação. Igualmente aumenta a controvérsia acerca da presença de compostos intermetálicos do tipo Fe xAl y, somado à falta de informação sobre sua origem. O objetivo deste trabalho é determinar parâmetros adequados para a obtenção de juntas alumínio-aço livres de defeitos e sua relação com a formação de fases deletérias durante a soldagem por atrito com pino. Foram obtidas juntas soldadas consolidadas e foi determinada a microestrutura resultante destas juntas soldadas da liga de alumínio 6063-T5 e aço AISI SAE 1020. Utilizou-se uma ferramenta de carbeto de tungstênio (WC-14Co a velocidades de rotação e de avanço de 300 rpm e 150 mm.min-1, respectivamente. Foram empregados deslocamentos da ferramenta de +0,5; +1,0 e +1,5 mm. Os resultados realçam a importância do aporte energético na obtenção de juntas alumínio-aço com aspecto superficial e penetração adequados. A análise microestrutural revela a formação de sete regiões na junta soldada, destacando a zona termo-mecanicamente afetada no lado do aço, uma banda de grãos ultra finos de ferrita e a ausência de compostos intermetálicos na interface alumínio-aço.

    2014-04-01

    Full Text Available Microstructural changes that occur during heat treatment of copper-nickel-zinc ferrites have been studied. The process of precipitation of the two types of crystals that occur during the sintering process has been analyzed. It is found that this process depends on dry relative density of the press specimens and on the following sintering parameters: sintering temperature, sintering time and cooling rate of the thermal cycle. Crystal precipitates characterization have been done by scanning electron microscopy (SEM, energy-dispersive X-ray (EDX analysis, X-ray diffraction (XRD, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS. These techniques have allowed to determine the nature of these crystals, which in this case correspond to zinc and copper oxides. It has been used two chemical reactions to explain the bulk precipitation and subsequent re-dissolution of these crystal precipitates during sintering.En este trabajo se han estudiado los cambios microestructurales que se producen durante el tratamiento térmico de las ferritas de cobre-níquel-cinc y se ha analizado el proceso de precipitación de los dos tipos de cristales que aparecen durante el proceso de sinterización. Se ha encontrado que este proceso depende de la densidad relativa en seco de las muestras compactadas y de las siguientes variables de la etapa de sinterización: temperatura y tiempo de sinterización y velocidad de enfriamiento. La caracterización de los cristales precipitados se ha realizado por microscopía electrónica de barrido (MEB, microanálisis por dispersión de energía de rayos X (EDX, difracción de rayos X (DRX, y espectroscopía de fotoelectrones de rayos X (XPS. Estas técnicas han permitido determinar la naturaleza de estos cristales, que en este caso corresponden a los óxidos de cinc y de cobre.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Jiménez, J. A.

    1998-05-01

    Full Text Available The microstructure and mechanical behavior at high temperature of a thermomechanical processed duplex stainless steel have been studied. Recrystalization of the material takes place during heating to test temperature, and a microstructure consisting of islands of austenitic grains of about 10-15 μm in size included in a more or less continuous matrix of ferrite is observed. Tensile tests at temperatures above 1,000°C and at low strain rates show a stress exponent of about 2 and elongations to failure up to 290 %. These values suggest that deformation is controlled by a grain boundary sliding mechanism, which causes a decrease in the size of the islands during deformation. Finally, an activation energy for plastic deformation of 167 kJ/mol was observed that was related to the activation energy for grain boundary diffusion of iron.

    Se ha estudiado la microestructura y el comportamiento mecánico a alta temperatura de un acero inoxidable dúplex procesado termomecánicamente. Durante el calentamiento a la temperatura de ensayo, el material recristaliza y se obtiene una microestructura de granos austeníticos de tamaños comprendidos entre 10 y 15 μm agrupados en islas incluidas en una matriz más o menos continua de ferrita. Ensayos de tracción a temperaturas superiores a 1.000°C y bajas velocidades de deformación muestran un exponente de la tensión igual a 2 y alargamientos a rotura de hasta 290 %. Estos valores permiten asociar el mecanismo de deformación al deslizamiento de fronteras de grano, el cual determina la desaparición progresiva de las islas de granos austeníticos durante la deformación. Finalmente, se encontró un valor de 167 kJ/mol para la energía de activación de la deformación plástica, la cual se relacionó con la energía de autodifusión del hierro a lo largo de las fronteras de grano.

  7. Influencia de los tratamientos térmicos en el comportamiento frente al desgaste por abrasión de una fundición de grafito esferoidal obtenida mediante adición de boro

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Varela, A.

    2008-08-01

    Full Text Available By adding boron to the liquid metal, it is possible to obtain spheroidal graphite cast iron without any need for special inoculants. The boron may be in metallic form; alternatively, borax, ferroboron, boron carbonate or borocalcium can be used. These alloys as cast present a pearlite matrix with more or less spheroidal graphite, which is usually edged in ferrite that has markings in the shape of bull’s eye. With normalising, the ferrite edges are eliminated. Thus, a pearlite matrix is achieved. Annealing results in an entirely ferrite matrix; quenching and tempering produce a tempered martensite matrix.This study measures the behaviour under wear of this alloy as cast, normalised, annealed, quenched and tempered . A “pin on disk” test is employed; load and speed conditions, as well as the pin type, are kept constant. Moreover, wear is calculated through weighing, and the variation for the friction coefficient is determined in each case.

    Mediante la adición de boro al metal líquido, bien en forma metálica o en forma de bórax, ferroboro, carburo de boro o boruro cálcico, se pueden obtener fundiciones de grafito esferoidal sin necesidad de inoculantes especiales. Estas fundiciones en estado bruto de colada presentan una matriz perlítica con grafito más o menos esferoidal que suele estar orlado de ferrita formando ojos de buey. Por tratamiento térmico de normalizado, se consigue eliminar la orla ferrítica y tener una matriz enteramente perlítica. Por recocido, se puede obtener una matriz enteramente ferrítica y por temple y revenido una matriz de martensita revenida. En el presente trabajo se mide el comportamiento frente al desgaste abrasivo de la aleación indicada, en estado bruto de colada, normalizado, recocido y bonificado, utilizando el ensayo pin on disk, manteniendo fijas las condiciones de ensayo en cuanto a carga, velocidad y tipo de pin, calculando el desgaste producido por pesada. También, se

    Delgado, Jorge A.

    2016-06-01

    Full Text Available Welds without filler metal and welds using a conventional austenitic stainless steel filler metal (ER308L were performed to join a ferritic stainless steel with Gas Tungsten Arc Welding process (GTAW. Welding parameters were adjusted to obtain three different heat input values. Microstructure reveals the presence of coarse ferritic matrix and martensite laths in the Heat Affected Zone (HAZ. Dilution between filler and base metal was correlated with the presence of austenite, martensite and ferrite in the weld metal. Weld thermal cycles were measured to correlate the microstructural transformation in the HAZ. Microhardness measurements (maps and profiles allow to identify the different zones of the welded joints (weld metal, HAZ, and base metal. Comparing the base metal with the weld metal and the HAZ, a hardness increment (~172 HV0.5 to ~350 HV0.5 and ~310 HV0.5, respectively was observed, which has been attributed to the martensite formation. Tensile strength of the welded joints without filler metal increased moderately with respect to base metal. In contrast, ductility was approximately 25% higher than base metal, which provided a toughness improvement of the welded joints.Se llevaron a cabo soldaduras sin material de aporte y empleando un electrodo convencional (ER308L para unir un acero inoxidable ferrítico, empleando el proceso de soldadura de arco con electrodo de tungsteno (GTAW. Los parámetros de soldadura fueron ajustados para obtener tres valores diferentes de calor de aporte. La microestructura revela la presencia de una matriz ferrítica gruesa y placas de martensita en la Zona Afectada por el Calor (ZAC. La dilución entre el metal base y de aporte fue correlacionada con la presencia de austenita, martensita y ferrita en el metal de soldadura. Los ciclos térmicos de la soldadura fueron medidos para correlacionar la transformación microestrutural en la ZAC. Mediciones de microdureza (mapas y perfiles, permitieron identificar las

    Caballero, F. G.

    2002-02-01

    Full Text Available Mixed microstructures consisting of fine plates of upper bainitic ferrite separated by thin films of stable retained austenite have seen many applications in recent years because of their impressive combination of strength and toughness. There may also be some martensite present in the microstructure, but its formation can be controlled increasing the stability of the retained austenite. On the other hand, carbides are avoided by the judicious use of silicon as an alloying element. The aim of the present work was to see how far these concepts can be extended in order to achieve the highest ever combination of strength and toughness in bulk-samples subjected to continuous cooling transformation. Three alloys were proposed and manufactured, and the results of metallographic characterisation and mechanical tests have shown that the designed steels have the highest ever combination of strength and toughness for bainitic microstructures, matching even the maraging steels which are at least thirty times more expensive. The experimental results confirm the alloy design procedures.

    En los últimos años se han diseñado aceros con microestmcturas formadas por placas de ferrita bainítica superior y finas regiones de austenita retenida que, por su excelente combinación de propiedades de resistencia y tenacidad, han sido empleados para numerosas aplicaciones. Aunque en estas microestructuras puede haber algo de martensita, su formación puede controlarse aumentando la estabilidad de la austenita retenida. Por otra parte, la presencia de carburos en la bainita, causa de importantes disminuciones de tenacidad en los aceros bainíticos convencionales, se evita gracias al uso del silicio como elemento de aleación. El objetivo de este trabajo es estudiar la posibilidad de optimizar la citada combinación de propiedades, generalmente antagónicas, en muestras masivas para aplicación industrial sujetas a transformaciones por enfriamiento continuo.

  13. Adaptive settings of distance relay for MOV-protected series compensated line with distributed capacitance considering wind power

    Science.gov (United States)

    Sivov, Oleg Viktorovich

    Series compensated lines are protected from overvoltage by metal-oxide-varistors (MOVs) connected in parallel with the capacitor bank. The nonlinear characteristics of MOV devices add complexity to fault analysis and distance protection operation. During faults, the impedance of the line is modified by an equivalent impedance of the parallel MOV/capacitor circuit, which affects the distance protection. The intermittent wind generation introduces additional complexity to the system performance and distance protection. Wind variation affects the fault current level and equivalent MOV/capacitor impedance during a fault, and hence the distance relay operation. This thesis studies the impact of the intermittent wind power generation on the operation of MOV during faults. For the purpose of simulation, an equivalent wind farm model is proposed to generate a wind generation profile using wind farm generation from California independent system operator (ISO) as a guide for wind power variation to perform the study. The IEEE 12-bus test system is modified to include MOV-protected series capacitor and the equivalent wind farm model. The modified test system is simulated in the MATLAB/Simulink environment. The study has been achieved considering three phase and single line to ground (SLG) faults on the series compensated line to show the effect of wind variation on the MOV operation. This thesis proposes an adaptive setting method for the mho relay distance protection of series compensated line considering effects of wind power variation and MOV operation. The distributed parameters of a transmission line are taken into account to avoid overreaching and underreaching of distance relays. The study shows that variable wind power affects system power flow and fault current in the compensated line during a fault which affects the operation of MOVs for different fault conditions. The equivalent per-phase impedance of the MOV/capacitor circuit has an effect on the system operation

    Full Text Available Cerâmicas densas de óxido de estanho são muito promissoras para aplicações tecnológicas como varistores e cadinhos de fusão de vidros corrosivos. Vários aditivos em pequenas concentrações podem ser usados como promotores de densificação desta cerâmica. No presente trabalho foram estudadas as cinéticas de sinterização do óxido de estanho, considerando o efeito de atmosfera de sinterização e da concentração de MnO2. Sistemas de SnO2-MnO2 foram preparados pelo método dos precursores poliméricos e os pós obtidos foram caracterizados por medidas de área de superfície específica (BET e por difração de raios X. Pós de SnO2 com concentrações variadas de MnO2 foram compactados de forma cilíndrica e sinterizados em dilatômetro com taxa de aquecimento constante e atmosferas controladas. Amostras sinterizadas foram caracterizadas por microscopia eletrônica de varredura. A influência da atmosfera (argônio, ar ou CO2 como também das concentrações de MnO2 na cinética de sinterização foram determinadas. Os dados cinéticos da retração linear foram analisados pelos modelos cinéticos para a fase inicial de sinterização (Woolfrey e Bannister como também para a sinterização global (Su e Johnson permitindo determinar a energia de ativação aparente. De acordo com a determinação da curva mestre de sinterização, a energia de ativação aparente de todo o processo de sinterização foi determinada bem como sua dependência com a atmosfera e concentrações de manganês. Baseado nestes valores e no expoente n, pode-se determinar, pela equação clássica de crescimento de grão, que o mecanismo de sinterização mais provável é de difusão por contorno de grão com redistribuição superficial controlando a cinética de sinterização.Dense tin oxide based ceramics are very promising for technological applications such as varistors and crucibles for melting very corrosive glasses.

A microestrutura apresentada não sofreu degradação mecânica quando as amostras foram testadas à tração com todas as fraturas ocorrendo no metal de base (MB. Em contraste, a maioria das amostras de tração soldadas usando LBW falharam por clivagem frágil na região adjacente a ZTA. Aparentemente, nesta região ocorreu uma têmpera devido à dissipação de calor no processo LBW promovendo o crescimento de carbonetos e uma microestrutura relativamente grosseira. Nenhum fragilização foi encontrada que pudesse ser associada com o desenvolvimento da martensita.

    Full Text Available Heavy-gauge Q235 steel plate was roll bonded, and the process was simulated using MARC software. Ultrasonic testing results revealed the presence of cracks and lamination defects in an 80-mm clad steel sheet, especially at the head and tail of the steel plate. There were non-uniform ferrite + pearlite microstructures and unbound areas at a bond interface. Through scanning electron microscopy analysis, long cracks and additional inclusions in the cracks were observed at the interface. A fracture analysis revealed non-uniform inclusions that pervaded the interface. Moreover, MARC simulations demonstrated that there was little equivalent strain at the centre of the slab during the first rolling pass. The equivalent centre increased to 0.5 by the fourth rolling pass. Prior to the final pass, the equivalent strain was not consistent across the thickness direction, preventing bonding interfaces from forming consistent deformation and decreasing the residual stress. The initial rolling reduction rate should not be very small (e.g. 5% as it is averse to the coordination of rolling deformation. Such rolling processes are averse to the rolling bond.Planchas de acero Q235 de espesor grueso se unieron mediante laminación y el proceso fue simulado numéricamente utilizando el programa de cálculo MARC. Los resultados obtenidos en ensayos mediante ultrasonidos revelaron la presencia de grietas y defectos en la laminación en una plancha de acero revestido de 80 mm, especialmente en el comienzo y final de la plancha. La microestructura consistía en ferrita+perlita y desunión en la interfase de unión. Mediante análisis por microscopía electrónica de barrido se observó que la interfase contenía grietas con inclusiones. Un análisis de la fractura reveló la presencia de inclusiones no uniformes en la interfase. Además, los datos de simulación utilizando el programa MARC demostraron que había poca tensión equivalente en el centro de la plancha

    Full Text Available This study evaluates the ultrasonic signals behavior of a duplex stainless steel SAF 2205 (UNS S31803 after aging treatments at 875 and 950 °C. The first treatment promotes the precipitation of the sigma phase and the second, its dissolution. The microstructural evaluation was carried out by optical microscopy. The results showed an increase of the sigma phase fraction and the secondary austenite with the time of aging treatment at 875 °C. On the other hand, increasing the time of treatment at 950 °C promotes a reduction of the sigma phase and the corresponding increase of the ferrite phase fraction. The study proposed to evaluate in the dynamical system field the influence of microstructural phases in the signals behavior and their dependence on the energy losses occurring in system during heat treatment, by deterministic chaos theory. To accomplish characterization, algorithm employs the representation of dynamic phase space and the information dimension estimate. The results show a higher correlation between the information dimension and the attenuation coefficient in comparison with the phase fractions. However, the efficiency of this type of study will depend on the frequency selected for the evaluation of the material.En el presente estudio se evalúa el comportamiento dinámico de las señales ultrasónicas de muestras de acero dúplex SAF 2205 (UNS31803, sometidos a tratamientos de envejecimiento a 875 y 950 °C. En el primer tratamiento se promueve la precipitación de la fase sigma y en el segundo su disolución. Los resultados obtenidos por microscopía óptica indican que la cantidad relativa de la fase sigma aumenta progresivamente con el tiempo de envejecimiento a 875 °C, observándose la transformación de la fase ferrita en fase sigma y en austenita secundaria. Por otra parte, a medida que se aumenta el tiempo de tratamiento a 950 °C, se observa una reducción del porcentaje de fase sigma y un aumento de la fase ferr

Los resultados de la investigacion indican que las mejores condiciones de disolucion son MD=H{sub 2}SO{sub 4}/H{sub 2}O{sub 2}, T=50 grados centigrados y t =30 min, donde se obtiene 94.1 y 90.7 % (w/w) de Mn y Zn respectivamente, con Mn/Zn = 1.51. Se determino que el contenido de mercurio es 3.91%, superior al declarado en las especificaciones de las pilas, que se recupera mediante disolucion con HCl/HNO{sub 3} en el solido remanente.

    Full Text Available ASTM A743-CA6NM é um aço inoxidável martensítico muito utilizado na fabricação de turbinas hidráulicas devido a sua elevada tenacidade, entretanto apresenta restrições com relação à regiões recuperadas por soldagem. Diferentes técnicas de deposição tem sido aplicadas com o intuito de reduzir ou eliminar a tensão residual. A deposição de revestimentos resistentes a cavitação é outra forma importante de aumentar a vida útil destes componentes. O objetivo deste trabalho é avaliar a influência do tipo e intensidade de corrente de refusão por plasma na microestrutura, composição química e microdureza de um revestimento Fe-Mn-Cr-Si resistente a cavitação depositado por aspersão térmica arco elétrico sobre aço ASTMA743-CA6NM. Observou-se que a adoção de menores valores de corrente média, assim como a utilização de corrente pulsada reduziram a formação de ferrita δ e a espessura final da ZTA, possibilitando a formação do revestimento com menores alterações na microestrutura do metal base. Verificou-se que a microestrutura e microdureza dos revestimentos refundidos não se mostraram muito sensível a variações na diluição do metal base. A utilização de corrente contínua promoveu um alinhamento da estrutura dendrítica no sentido da movimentação da tocha, entretanto este comportamento não foi observado em revestimentos refundidos com corrente pulsada.ASTM A743-CA6NM martensitic stainless steel have been used in hydraulic turbines manufacturing, but show some restrictions in welded recovered areas.

    Full Text Available Os aços inoxidáveis duplex e superduplex possuem uma microestrutura austeno-ferrítica com fração média de cada fase de cerca 50%. A microestrutura duplex é responsável pelas excelentes propriedades mecânicas, especialmente o limite de escoamento e a tenacidade, e pela elevada resistência a corrosão por pites e sob tensão em meios contendo cloretos. A soldagem destes aços é frequentemente uma operação crítica. Neste trabalho, um tubo de superduplex SAF 2207 foi soldado pelo processo TIG (GTAW no passe de raiz e eletrodo revestido (SMAW nos passes de enchimento, e um tubo de duplex SAF 2205 foi todo soldado pelo processo GTAW. A microestrutura do metal base, zona afetada termicamente (ZTA e metal de solda foi caracterizada e quantificada. As propriedades de tenacidade, resistência a corrosão e composição química foram avaliadas e correlacionadas. Os valores de tenacidade ao impacto Charpy-V foram considerados adequados. Não foi observada a precipitação de intermetálicos, carbonetos e nitretos. O melhor resultado no teste de corrosão da junta soldada de aço inox superduplex, comparado ao duplex, foi atribuído ao baixo teor de ferrita delta na solda e ZTA, e composição química da solda enriquecida em Cr, Mo, W e N.The duplex and superduplex stainless steels have an austenitic-ferritic microstructure with an average fraction of each phase of approximately 50%. This duplex microstructure is responsible for the excellent mechanical properties, specially the yield strength and toughness, and for the improved pitting and stress corrosion cracking resistance in chloride environments. Welding of these steels is often a critical operation. In this work, a superduplex stainless steel SAF 2507 pipe was welded by the GTAW process in the root pass and by SMAW process on filler passes, and one pipe of duplex SAF 2205 was entirely welded by the GTAW process.

    Full Text Available A principal característica dos aços inoxidáveis duplex é o equilíbrio entre as fases austenita e ferrita, que garantem ao material melhores índices de resistências à corrosão e mecânica. No entanto, durante o processo de soldagem, ocorrem modificações estruturais, principalmente no balanço destas fases. Este desbalanceamento, em função dos níveis de solicitações mecânicas, pode levar tais regiões soldadas ao colapso. No intuito de minimizar o desequilíbrio das fases na região soldada, diversas técnicas são utilizadas, tais como inserção de metal de adição com elementos austenitizantes, uso de gás de proteção com nitrogênio ou, em outros casos, controle pós soldagem. Buscou-se identificar o verdadeiro efeito dos parâmetros de soldagem e do tratamento térmico especificado pela literatura em situações de campo. Através de uma avaliação temporal, observando uma linha de produção de tubulação flexível de aço inoxidável duplex UNS 32304 durante três anos, utilizando-se de procedimentos convencionais de soldagem com e sem a utilização de tratamento térmico foram observadas as falhas por fratura na zona termicamente afetada (ZTA. Foi utilizado um indutor localizado para o tratamento térmico, gerando um intenso fluxo de calor que promoveu temperaturas da ordem de 1000 ºC a altíssimas taxas de subida e descida, conforme estabelecem algumas literaturas.The main characteristic of duplex stainless steels is the balance between ferrite and austenite phases, wich ensures to such material the best levels of corrosion and mechanical resistance. However, during the welding process, structural modifications occur, especially with regard to the balance of these phases. This imbalance, depending on the levels of mechanical stress, may lead welded regions to collapse. In order to minimize the imbalance of the phases in the welded steel, several techniques are used, such as the insertion of filler metal with

    Full Text Available The hexaferrites (AFe12O19, A = Ba, Sr have been used since years ago. Because of their low cost these materials continue in the market and they have not been substituted for other powerful magnets. The partial substitution of metallic elements or the use of additives in small proportions have been widely used for industrial processes in order to improve magnetic properties or the sintering process. Efforts had been made to determinate the effect of an important number of diamagnetic or paramagnetic cations on the microstructure and magnetic properties of the hexagonal ferrites. Previous studies have reported a remarkable increase in the coercitive field of the hexaferrites of barium with the substitution partial of that by La, Lu, Sm, Nd and Gd. In the present research a structural and magnetic study of sintered permanent magnets with the general formula Sr1-XGdX/2NaX/2Fe12O19 (0.00≤ X ≤0.10 was made. The samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction, vibrating sample magnetometry, scanning electron microscopy and elemental analysis (EDAX. The dependency of the densification, the medium grain size, the cells parameters and the magnetic properties with the gadolinium oxide content is discussed.Las hexaferritas (AFe12O19, A = Ba, Sr se vienen utilizando desde hace varios años; debido a su bajo costo dominan el mercado y no han sido sustituidas por imanes permanentes más potentes.

Aunque la fase en equilibrio sería ferrita 8, la formación de austenita primaria está favorecida cinéticamente, por lo que esta fase tiende a ser predominante a las altas velocidades de solidificación que se consiguen en los tratamientos láser. Se ha observado que la fracción de volumen de austenita retenida depende de manera crítica de los parámetros del procesado con láser , así como que la microestructura puede cambiar de martensita a austenita en función de dichos parámetros. En la fusión superficial del acero DIN X42Cr13 se obtiene un pico de endurecimiento secundario después del tratamiento con láser a 600°C, mientras que, para los tratamientos térmicos convencionales éste aparece a 500°C, debido a la presencia de gran cantidad de austenita retenida. El endurecimiento secundario se debe a la transformación de la austenita retenida en martensita y a la precipitación de carburos del tipo M7C3 y M23C6.

    Full Text Available In the present work, two selected tool steels have been modified by a boron addition of 0.5 and 1 mass %. Both steels were processed by powder metallurgy methods, including argon atomization and hot isostatic pressing. The Consolidated materials presented a microstructure consisting of a fine and homogeneous distribution borocarbides M23(C,B6 in a ferrite-martensite matrix. No changes are observed in the microstructure after deformation by compression-strain-rate-change tests at temperatures ranging from 700 to 1,100 °C. For the Fe-lB-lC steel, a stress exponent of 4.5 was obtained, that suggests that slip creep is the controlling deformation mechanism. On the other hand, a stress exponent between 2 and 3 was obtained for the Fe-0.5B-1.5C steel that suggests that grain boundary sliding is the controlling deformation mechanism. In both cases, the activation energy for creep was related to the activation energy for iron self-diffusion.

    En el presente trabajo se han modificado dos aceros para herramientas convencionales por la presencia de un contenido de boro entre 0,5 y 1 % en masa. Ambos aceros se procesaron por la ruta pulvimetalúrgica, incluyendo atomización por argón y compactación isostática en caliente. El material compactado presentó una microestructura caracterizada por una distribución de partículas de borocarburos M23(C,B6 fina y homogénea en una matriz de ferrita-martensita. Esta microestructura permanece prácticamente inalterada tras los ensayos de cambios en la velocidad de deformación durante el ensayo de compresión a temperaturas entre 750 y 1.000 °C. En el caso del acero Fe-lB-lC se obtuvo un valor para el exponente de la tensión de 4,5, que sugiere que la deformación plástica está controlada por un mecanismo de fluencia por movimiento de dislocaciones.

Pure, synthetic ZnO is colourless and clear in agreement to the gap in the near UV. The growth of ZnO and ZnO-based nano-structures is treated in Chap. 3. ZnO is used by several 100,000 tons per year, for example, as additive to concrete or to the rubber of tires of cars. In smaller quantities, it is used in pharmaceutical industries, as an additive to human and animal food, as a material for sensors and for varistors or as transparent conducting oxide.

    All ceramics and powder metals, including the ceramics components that Sandia uses in critical weapons components such as PZT voltage bars and current stacks, multi-layer ceramic MET's, ahmindmolybdenum & alumina cermets, and ZnO varistors, are manufactured by sintering. Sintering is a critical, possibly the most important, processing step during manufacturing of ceramics. The microstructural evolution, the macroscopic shrinkage, and shape distortions during sintering will control the engineering performance of the resulting ceramic component. Yet, modeling and prediction of sintering behavior is in its infancy, lagging far behind the other manufacturing models, such as powder synthesis and powder compaction models, and behind models that predict engineering properties and reliability. In this project, we developed a model that was capable of simulating microstructural evolution during sintering, providing constitutive equations for macroscale simulation of shrinkage and distortion during sintering. And we developed macroscale sintering simulation capability in JAS3D. The mesoscale model can simulate microstructural evolution in a complex powder compact of hundreds or even thousands of particles of arbitrary shape and size by 1. curvature-driven grain growth, 2. pore migration and coalescence by surface diffusion, 3. vacancy formation, grain boundary diffusion and annihilation. This model was validated by comparing predictions of the simulation to analytical predictions for simple geometries. The model was then used to simulate sintering in complex powder compacts. Sintering stress and materials viscous module were obtained from the simulations. These constitutive equations were then used by macroscopic simulations for simulating shrinkage and shape changes in FEM simulations. The continuum theory of sintering embodied in the constitutive description of Skorohod and Olevsky was combined with results from microstructure evolution simulations to model shrinkage
