Sammanfattning : TiAlN thin films are used commercially in the cutting tool industry as wear protection of the inserts. During cutting, the inserts are subjected to high temperatures (~ 900 ° C and sometimes higher). The objective of this work is to simulate the material behavior at such high temperatures. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The formation of Cr-rich and Fe-rich domains upon ageing of an initially homogeneous Fe-Cr alloy at elevated temperatures (300-600 ºC) is commonly referred to as phase separation. The behaviour originates from a miscibility gap in the Fe-Cr phase diagram. LÄS MER
3. Thermodynamic and Kinetic Investigation of the Fe-Cr-Ni System Driven by Engineering Applications
Sammanfattning : This work is a thermodynamic and kinetic study of the Fe-Cr-Ni system as the core of stainless steels. The Fe-Cr, Fe-Ni and Cr-Ni systems were studied intensively using both computational and experimental techniques, including CALPHAD (CALculation of PHAse Diagrams), phase field simulation, ab initio modeling, calorimetry, and atom probe tomography.

Sammanfattning : Structural materials of nuclear power plants degrade during operation due to thermal ageing and irradiation from the reactor core. Effects on the materials are an increase in hardness and tensile strength, and a decrease in ductility and fracture toughness, i. e. embrittlement. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : This thesis explores nanostructuring in TiSiCN, ZrAlN, and TiAlN thin films deposited by cathodic arc evaporation onto cemented carbide substrates, with intended applications for cutting tools. The three systems were found to exhibit age hardening upon annealing, by different mechanisms, into the superhard regime (≥30 GPa), as determined by a combination of electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, atom probe tomography, erda, and nanoindentation tech- niques.
