The grain boundary pinning phase was identified as $β$-phase (B2-(Ni,Co)Al) by high-energy X-ray diffraction [...] Restricted: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2018-09-2711:37 [PUBDB-2018-03648] Journal Article et al The Effect of Zn Content on the Mechanical Properties of Mg-4Nd-xZn Alloys (x = 0, 3, 5 and 8 wt.%) Materials 11(7), 1103 (2018) [10.3390/ma11071103]   The mechanical properties of as-cast Mg-4Nd-xZn (x = 0, 3, 5 or 8 wt.%) alloys were investigated both in situ and ex situ in as-cast and solution-treated conditions. The additions of 3 or 5 wt.% Zn in the base Mg-4Nd alloy did not improve yield strength in comparison to the binary Mg-4Nd alloy [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2018-09-2711:23 [PUBDB-2018-03646] Journal Article et al New insights into perovskite-Ti$_{3}$AlC precipitate splitting in a Ti-45Al-5Nb-0.75C alloy by transmission electron microscopy Intermetallics 100, 70 - 76 (2018) [10.1016/j.intermet.2018.06.006]   The addition of carbon in TiAl alloys can improve the mechanical properties by precipitate hardening through the perovskite Ti$_3$AlC carbide.

Since all of them are rather sensitive to the applied cooling rates, the present study investigates the mechanisms taking place during the bainitic phase transformation by using a comprehensive set of methods including in-situ high energy X-ray diffraction combined with dilatometry, ex-situ microstructure characterization by means of scanning and transmission electron microscopy including electron back scatter diffraction [...] 2018-09-2011:18 [PUBDB-2018-03549] Journal Article et al In-Situ Synchrotron X-Ray Diffraction Studies in the Chip Formation Zone During Orthogonal Metal Cutting Residual Stresses 2018, ECRS-10 , LeuvenLeuven, Belgium, 11 Sep 2018 - 14 Sep 2018 Materials research proceedings 6, 39 - 44 (2018) [10.21741/9781945291890-7]   Abstract.
