Modern zinc TD processing can provide excellent corrosion resistance for steel, in part because zinc-iron intermetallic structures intrinsically have better corrosion resistance than pure zinc or metallic zinc layers.
LI Xia-wei et al [1] joined the aluminium alloy 1350 plates with pure copper and found that no intermetallic compounds were present in the weld nugget.
Behavior of P phase in AA5083 during friction stir welding, Intermetallics 35: 120-127.
Writing for students and for researchers just moving into the field of intermetallics, Mitra describes the structure of intermetallics and their effect on various physical and mechanical properties.
His activities and research on intermetallic y-TiAl based alloys for more than two decades have significantly contributed to the fact that they are presently seen as key structural materials for high-temperature application in advanced jet and automotive engines of the next generation.
We speculated that the environment caused corrosion, which may have accelerated recrystallization and changes to the grain structure, and influenced intermetallic growth kinetics.
The machining characteristics of aluminum-silicon alloys depend on microstructural features such as shape, size and morphology of the eutectic silicon particles, the dendrite morphology of a-aluminum, and the morphology and amount of other intermetallics.
Abstract: The effects of Bi addition on the intermetallic phase formation in the lead-free solder joints of SnAgCu1, 0Bi (composition given in weight %) with copper substrate are studied.
This volume contains 12 invited papers on ultra-high-temperature ceramics, refractory borides, and oxide ceramics, including their composites, intermetallics, and CMCs.
That's why it would be logical to expect change in structure of the layers and, as a result, differences in synthesis processes of intermetallics in case of using different methods of production of laminated materials.
As for TiAl intermetallics, they possess good high-temperature (700[degrees]C) oxidation resistance and low cost (with the addition of aluminum [Al]) apart from the low density and high specific strength.
These materials include monolithic structural ceramics, glass, graphite, and intermetallics.
