Effects of processing on the properties of aluminum-cerium-based alloys
This research seeks to characterize Al-Ce-based alloys processed via different routes. These production methods include powder-in-tube, gravity casting, and powder extrusion. Al-Ce alloys samples were made by gravity casting ...
Effects of Mg and Si additions to novel Al-Ce based alloys for aerospace applications
The experimental work in this thesis is focused on the alloying effects of Mg and Si in Al-Ce base alloys. The alloys were gravity cast over a 20-point (or target chemical compositions) test matrix. X-ray diffraction, ...
Biodegradable chitosan matrix composite reinforced with titanium dioxide for biocidal applications
Access to drinkable water is increasingly difficult to find in developing nations. According to the World Health Organization, more than 1.2 billion people lack access to this basic resource. What is worse, water being the ...
