1 First-Principles Study on Elastic Properties of B2-NiAl Intermetallic Compound with Ag Addition
Using the first-principles pseudopotential plane-wave methods based on the density functional theory,the elastic constants of B2-(Ni1-xAgx)Al(x=0~1%,atom fraction,) supercells with or without Ni vacancy or Ni anti-site defect were calculated in the framework of Virtual Crystal Approximation.Several parameters such as elastic constant C44,Cauchy pressure(C12-C44),Elastic modulus E,the shear modulus G and their ratio G/B0 were adopted to characterize and assess the effect of Ag alloying concentration on the ductility and hardness of NiAl intermetallic compounds.Ag addition with x<1% is proved to be efficient to enforce the strength or hardness of NiAl intermetallic compounds either for perfect crystals or for defect crystals.Adding Ag in the range of 0 to 0.6% and 0.7% to 1%,especially about 0.6%,help to improve the ductility of perfect B2-NiAl.Ni vacancy or Ni anti-site defects make the intrinsic ductility of perfect B2-NiAl crystals without Ag addition to be weakened.Moreover,the ductility of B2-(Ni1-xAgx) Al crystals with Ni vacancies or Ni anti-site is obviously improved as Ag alloying concentration x is lower than 0.5%(0.32% to 0.48%,especially) or is in the range of 0.5% to 1%(0.73% to 1%,especially) respectively.The alloying effect attribute to solid solution hardening of Ag atom in low concentration and inteneration of Ag-rich phase in high concentration.

PENG Cong-Hui, CHANG Hui, HU Rui, FAN Jiang-kun, BO Guang-hai, FU Heng-zhi
The static recrystallization behavior and kinetics of Haynes230 superalloy were investigated.The results show that homogeneous and fine grains of the alloy are obtained through annealing at 1100~1150℃ after cold rolling.The relationship between volume fraction of the recrystallization grains and annealing time can be described by the JMAK equation.Based on the experimental data,the calculated activation energy decreases range from 402kJ/mol to 318kJ/mol with the cold deformation increasing.As the temperature rose,the time for recrystallization completion shortened with range of 74.51~5.43min.The temperature had significant influence on the velocity of recrystallization.At the meantime,the recrystallization kinetics curve of Haynes230 superalloy was worked out,which is a theoretical guidance for the microstructural refinement.

LI Zhong-sheng, PAN Fu-sheng, WU Hu-lin, CHEN Yun-ru
The effect of single homogenization treatment and two-stage homogenization treatment on microstructure and properties of the as-cast 7A55 aluminum alloy were investigated.The results show that the residual eutectic structure is still more after single homogenization treatment at 450℃.After 450℃/60h homogenization treatment,the area fraction of residual eutectic decreases from 15.2% to 7.2%,and hardness reduces from 72HRB to 60HRB,whereas elongation increases from 2.1% to 11.2%.The non-equilibrium eutectic significantly reduces after 450℃/60h+470℃ two-stage homogenization.It is found that a large number of equilibrium phase is precipitated during cooling.After 450℃/60h+470℃/12h two-stage homogenization,the area fraction of residual eutectic is only 2.3%,and hardness is reduced by about 17HRB compared to the as-cast alloy.In the meanwhile,the elongation is 15.3%.According to the experimental results,the proper homogenization treatment of 7A55 aluminum alloy is 450℃/60h +470℃/12h.

JIAN Hai-gen, JIANG Feng, LI Jin-long, ZHENG Xiu-yuan, WEI Li-li
The quench sensitivity of the Al-Zn-Mg-Cu alloy for large sized bars were studied by means of hardness test,X-ray diffraction analysis,finite element simulation and microstructure observation.The results show that,the closer to the centre of the quenching bars,the larger quantities of equilibrium MgZn2 are observed in the grain inner and on the grain boundary and keep growing up.And small quantity of hardening precipitates are exhibited in the 120℃/24h aging samples.It results in the decline of the age-hardening effect.For the surface of the bar,the second phase was not observed and the homogeneous content in the grain inner was obtained,which may attribute to the super saturated solid solution.A number of η′dispersoid were found at the surface.The dispersive phases are able to promote the precipitation strengthening effect and the hardness of the alloy reach the peak.The value of the quenching depth is 30mm,and the critical quench cooling rate is 15℃/s.

24 3D Finite Element Simulation and Experimental Test on Residual Stress Field by Hole Cold Expansion
LIU Xiao-long, GAO Yu-kui, LIU Yun-tao, CHEN Dong-feng
The residual stress field of 7050-T7451 aluminum alloy with different thickness caused by hole cold expansion was simulated by FEM using ANSYS codes.The results show that the residual compressive stress of the hole edge exists grades across the thickness and the residual compressive value is smallest at the entrance,so the entrance becomes the most weakest region.With the increment of the thickness,the residual compressive stress at the entrance increases until reaching the maximum,then decreases and gradually tends to a stable value.The residual stress of the specimen was measured by the X-ray.The results show that residual stresses are obviously less compressive on the entry surface compared to the exit surface.The measurement was consistent with the FEM simulation.

LI Zhan-ming, ZHU You-li, XIN Yi
2A12 aluminum alloy welded joint was full coverage strengthened by ultrasonic impact treatment(UIT).The S-N curves of welded joint samples with and without UIT were set up by making bending fatigue test.The effect of UIT on fatigue properties of aluminum alloy welded joint was analyzed.The fatigue fracture mechanisms of these samples with and without UIT were studied by microstructure,residual stress and fracture surface analysis.The results showed that the fatigue limit of 2A12 aluminum alloy butt-welded joints was increased 38.5%.At the same time,the surface defects of welded joints were reduced substantially after ultrasonic impact treatment.The coarse-grained microstructures of top-surface layer of welded joint were refined after the UIT.The metallurgical structure of the near surface material of the joint was thus density.Compressive residual stress was induced at the surface of welded joints by UIT.

LI Bin-tai, XING Li-ying, ZHAO Tong, LIU Feng, CHEN Xiang-bao
The curing of acetylene-terminated polyisoimide oligomer was investigated using DSC and FTIR spectroscopy.Through dynamic and isothermal FTIR method,the isoimide-imide isomerization and crosslinking reactions of the oligomer was monitored individually and the temperature ranges of these two reactions were clearly determined.The fact that the isomerization occurred at a lower temperature ranges than the crosslinking is attributed to the difference between the activation energies of the two reactions,79.635kJ/mol for isomerization and 106.469kJ/mol for crosslinking.For the acetylene-terminated polyisoimide oligomer considered here,curing reaction was achieved to a sufficient extent at the temperature range of 200~220℃.Posture temperature is in the range of 300~350℃.

55 Comparison on Optical Properties of Injection Molded and Injection Compression Molded Transparencies
CHEN Yu-hong, YUAN Yuan, LIU Xiao-yan, GUO Dan-dan, BAI Yi-feng
Optical properties,residual stress and thickness distribution of injection molded(IM) and injection compression molded(ICM) transparencies were tested and molding principles of the transparencies were also studied.The results showed that ICM transparencies had similar appearance quality,transmittance and haze to IM parts,as a result of the same material and close surface roughness.But ICM parts possessed much smaller birefringence,optical distortion and angular deviation than IM parts.ICM parts exhibited little molecular orientation,thus having well-distributed residual stresses and low birefringence.Low optical distortion and angular deviation of ICM parts were not only associated with small and well-distributed residual stresses,but also related to even shrinkage.Consequently,optical quality of ICM transparencies was superior to that of IM transparencies.

SUN Shi-ping, LAI Yu-dong
Honeycomb sandwich panel was studied to reveal the effects of the cell size in the static analysis and the free vibration analysis.The response of the sandwich panel with the homogenized cores was used as the standard of comparison.The ratio of the responses of the detailed finite element models of sandwich panels to the corresponding comparison solutions was defined as a Size Influencing Index that reflects the influences of the size variation of different cell configuration.Based finite element technique,the static and the free variation response of honeycomb sandwich panels with the different cores and the homogenized cores were analyzed comparatively,under three typical boundary conditions,including the hexagonal,triangular and square honeycomb core.The computed results reveal the size effect of the honeycomb cell on the stiffness and the frequency behavior of sandwich panel.It is shown that when the ratio of the macrostructure size to the cell size is larger than 12,the influence of the cell size on the sandwich panel performances tends to gentle weakening.Meanwhile,when the cell size and macrostructure size are comparable with each other,the size effect is quite obvious,and the degree of influence is significantly dependent on the boundary condition and the cell configuration.

LI Ke, WANG Qian, ZHOU Nai-geng, GAO Ting
A206 aluminum alloy is rarely used in critical applications because of its high propensity for hot cracking.A206/1% Al2O3 nanocomposite was prepared with ultrasonic dispersion method.The hot cracking susceptibility(HCS) was evaluated using constrained rod casting in a steel mold.And microstructure of the alloys was analyzed by Optical Microscopy(OM) and Scanning Electron Microscopy(SEM).It was observed that the grain structure of α-Al in A206 alloy was changed from large dendritic crystal to small equiaxed one and the grain size was decreased from 164 μm to 26 μm with addition of Al2O3 nanoparticles.In addition,large number of flake-like(Fe,Mn)-rich intermediate phases were formed and coarse CuAl2 phases were eliminated in A206/1% Al2O3 aluminum composite,which significantly decreases its HCS.

YAN Ke-fei, ZHANG Cheng-yu, QIAO Sheng-ru, HAN Dong, LI Mei
The charpy impact properties of C/C and C/SiC composites were investigated.The specimens were impacted with the knife radius of 2 mm at a linear velocity of 2.9 m/s.The fracture morphologies were examined by Optical Microscope and Scanning Electron Microscope.The results indicate that a linear relationship is present between the impact energy and the density of both composites.The composites with higher density failed at smaller impact energy and their fractured surface are characteristic of few pull-out fibers.Whereas,the fractured surface is rougher for the sample with a lower density,in dicating a large amount of fibers or fiber bundles were pulled out from the matrix.
