A refining mechanism of primary Al3Ti intermetallic particles by ultrasonic treatment in the liquid state (2016)
Journal Article
Wang, F., Eskin, D., Mi, J., Connolley, T., Lindsay, J., & Mounib, M. (2016). A refining mechanism of primary Al3Ti intermetallic particles by ultrasonic treatment in the liquid state. Acta Materialia, 116, 354-363. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.actamat.2016.06.056

The mechanism underlying the considerable refinement of primary Al3Ti intermetallic particles induced by ultrasonic treatment (UST) in an Al-0.4 wt% Ti alloy in the fully liquid state was investigated. Scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive... Read More about A refining mechanism of primary Al3Ti intermetallic particles by ultrasonic treatment in the liquid state.

Multi-scale characterisation of the 3D microstructure of a thermally-shocked bulk metallic glass matrix composite (2016)
Journal Article
Zhang, W., Bodey, A. J., Sui, T., Kockelmann, W., Rau, C., Korsunsky, A. M., & Mi, J. (2016). Multi-scale characterisation of the 3D microstructure of a thermally-shocked bulk metallic glass matrix composite. Scientific reports, 6(1), 18545-1-18545-7. https://doi.org/10.1038/srep18545

Bulk metallic glass matrix composites (BMGMCs) are a new class of metal alloys which have significantly increased ductility and impact toughness, resulting from the ductile crystalline phases distributed uniformly within the amorphous matrix. However... Read More about Multi-scale characterisation of the 3D microstructure of a thermally-shocked bulk metallic glass matrix composite.
