Abstract: Nondestructive Thermographic Detection of Fatigue Damage: Experiments and Theoretical Modeling High-cycle and low-cycle fatigue experiments were conducted on reactor pressure vessel (RPV) steels. Highcycle fatigue tests were performed using an advanced electrohydraulic machine, which has a frequency range from approximately 20 to 1,000 Hz, while low-cycle fatigue tests were done with strain amplitudes from 0.3 to 0.6 %. A high-speed and high-sensitivity thermographic infrared (IR) imaging system has been used for nondestructive evaluation of temperature evolution during fatigue testing of RPV steels. The temperature sensitivity of the camera is 0.015ºC at 23ºC. High-speed data acquisition capabilities are available at 150 Hz with a full frame, and 6,100 Hz with a narrow window. A fully-automated software system was employed to acquire temperature distributions of the test samples during fatigue experiments. Thus, the IR camera can be used to monitor in situ temperature evolutions resulting from fatigue. Five stages of temperature profiles were observed during high-cycle fatigue testing: an initial increase of the mean temperature of the test sample, a followed decrease of the temperature, a saturation-temperature region, an abrupt increase of temperature, and a drop of temperature after specimen failure. The measurements of temperature oscillations within each fatigue cycle at 20 Hz has been attempted. During each fatigue cycle, the temperature was detected to oscillate within 0.5ºC depending on the loading conditions and test materials. When the applied stress reached the minimum, and the temperature typically approached the maximum. However, the applied maximum stress did not necessarily correspond to the minimum temperature. Increasing the test frequency from 20 Hz to 1,000 Hz was generally found to decrease fatigue life. Temperature evolutions offered possible explanations for the frequency effect on the S (stress) N (number of cycles to failure) curve in the range of 20 Hz to 1,000 Hz. A theoretical framework was attempted to predict temperature evolutions based on thermoelastic and inelastic effects, and heat-conduction models. Temperature oscillation during fatigue resulted from the thermoelastic effects, while the increase in the mean temperature derived from the inelastic behavior of the materials. The predicted temperature evolutions during fatigue were found to be in good agreement with the thermographic results measured by the advanced high-speed and high-sensitivity IR camera. The stress-strain hysteresis loops and the inelastic strains during high-cycle fatigue were back-calculated from the measured temperatures, which indicates that thermography could be used for detecting fatigue damage. Using the concept of the tensile hysteresis energy, the measured mean temperature was used to predict the low-cycle fatigue life, which was found to be consistent with the experimental results.

Moreover, his students are teaching and doing research at universities, and industry and government laboratories in USA Abstract: Ceramic to Metal Linear Cellular Materials Extrusion is a material forming process that permits the shaping of ceramic paste into a form having constant cross section. The paste is a homogeneous mixture of two phases: a solid phase composed of raw material powders carried by a fluid solution of water, binder, and lubricant. To maximize extrusion efficiency, the paste must be compliant enough to flow through a die yet have a high enough bulk shear stress at low shear rates to avoid deformation following extrusion. 2 A novel technology has been developed at Georgia Tech for the extrusion of thin walled ( 150 um) ceramic honeycomb and subsequent thermochemical processing of the green structure to metal alloy. In this presentation, I'll talk about the prediction and modeling of paste properties and their relationship to quality extrusion. There will be plenty of samples - ceramic and metal - on hand to show off this promising technique for manufacturing high strength, low density structures. Kevin Hurysz is currently a Ph.D. student in Materials Science and Engineering at Georgia Tech. He received his M.S. in that field from Georgia Tech in 1998 and his B.S. in Ceramic Engineering from Alfred University in Phone: Dr. Subi Dinda of the Daimler-Chrysler Corporation describes some of the issues relevant to innovative designs and new emerging materials in the manufacturing of 21 st century vehicles at the April Atlanta ASM meeting. Vijay Yelundur presenting his work with High Efficiency Ribbon Silicon Solar Cells at the April Atlanta ASM meeting. 3 Atlanta ASM Chairman's Message by John L. Mihelich At our April dinner meeting, Dr Subi Dinda of DaimlerChrysler and Trustee of ASM presented his views of Materials Challenges-21 st Century for the US automobile industry. By lightweighting the vehicle and improving the efficiency of the power plant, using hybrid systems or fuel cell technology for example, the industry s goal of making an 80-mpg vehicle can be achieved. Use of lightweight metals, aluminum and magnesium, will play a major role in achieving success. Many of us have found that our meetings and tours offer an excellent opportunity to network with peers from Tech and from industry. It s a great way to stay on top of what is happening locally in the materials field. Why not bring a colleague along too, to experience the fellowship of your ASM Atlanta Chapter! Ben Church Receives ASM Award Ga Tech grad student, Vijay Yelundur presented a summary of his work to date on High Efficiency Ribbon Silicon Solar Cells. His work is showing significant improvement in solar cell efficiency approaching the 18% efficiency goal set by the US Photovoltic Industry. This compares to 3 to- 5% efficiency of today s photovoltic cells. A great leap forward! As part of your Chapters continuing Education effort, Kim Spinsby, our 1 st Vice Chair has identified a prime candidate for Nationals Materials Camp Program. He is Josh Sofsky who is a rising junior and is very interested in chemistry and math and would like to gain a flavor of materials. This week long program in August is held Materials Park, Ohio and the student get to use ASM s lab facilities for some hands-on work. It is a super learning experience for the participants and may lead some of them into careers in our field. Your Chapter has nominated Josh and we await word from National as to his selection. The Executive Committee discussed the idea of having a local Materials Camp using the facilities at Ga Tech. Dr. Dinda will take that concept back to the Board of Trustees for their input. This would be an excellent way to get a larger number of bright students in our area to experience materials technology. Our May dinner meeting is the last one of the season. Our speaker will be Professor Peter Liaw from the University of Tennessee. He will explain his work on nondestructive testing of fatigue of metals. The Abstract of his talk was provided at the beginning of this NewsLetter. The Executive Committee has reviewed the final revised version of Chapter Rules/Bylaws. Bill Livesay did the job and has sent these in to National for their approval. Following Nationals approval, the Rules/Bylaws will be released to the Chapter membership. The Chapter s Annual Meeting in May will then follow these Rules and officers will be elected to serve the term. Our Nominating Committee has prepared a slate of candidates. Members can also name additional candidates, if they wish, up until the vote is taken at our 15 May meeting.
