Gulf Oil Spill Reaches Important Bird Areas

Posted on 22. June, 2010.

The massive Deep Water Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has begun to reach some of the 25 recognised Important Bird Areas (IBAs) that line the US Gulf Coast from Louisiana to south Florida, according to the Audubon Society.

Organotin Compounds In Technology And Industry

Posted on 17. June, 2010.

Organotin compounds find a bigger range of technological and industrial applications than the organic compounds of any other metal. Many of these applications involve catalysis or anticatalysis, often in polymer chemistry, and they have an importance out of all proportion to the tonnage of tin which is used. This article reviews the present standing of the non-biological applications of organostannanes, with an emphasis on the mechanisms of the reactions which are involved.

Intergranular Corrosion Of High Temperature Alloys In Molten Fluoride Salts

Posted on 17. June, 2010.

A number of high temperature Ni-based and Fe –Ni-based alloys, were evaluated for their corrosion resistance in molten FLiNaK salt at 850oC for 500 h, in graphite crucibles. Based on this test, the corrosion performance of the various alloys may be ranked as follows (in the order of increasing corrosion resistance): Haynes-230, Inconel-617, Incoloy-800H, Hastelloy-X, Hastelloy-N, and Ni-201.

Oxidation And Spallation Of FeCrAl Alloys And Thermal Barrier Coatings

Posted on 17. June, 2010.

The specificities of a new automated cyclic oxidation test consist of: (i) the precise control of the thermal gradient that establishes through the thickness of the investigated specimens to closely reproduce the condition of high temperature materials use, and (ii) the video recording of cooling sequences to address surface degradation on a real-time basis.

Results Of A Low Cycle Fatigue Inter-Laboratory Comparison On 1CrMoNiV Rotor Steel At Elevated Temperatures

Posted on 14. June, 2010.

A special low cycle fatigue (LCF) programme has been performed on a 1CrMoNiV rotor steel at a temperature of 525 degrees centigrade. In this programme, 15 laboratories have tested a total of 67 test pieces at a single applied total strain range. The programme focused on an examination of typical laboratory practices likely to affect the degree of scatter in LCF endurance. As a feature, bending measurements have been performed at room temperature immediately prior to the start of each test.
