Investigation of Thermal Shock Resistance of CeO2 Coating on Titanium Alloy by Magnetron Sputtering

Titanium alloy (Grade V) is used in aerospace, medical, marine and chemical processing industries. To improve the thermal shock resistance and corrosion resistance of the titanium alloy at elevated temperatures, Thermal barrier coating (TBC) has been predominantly used. Cerium oxides (CeO2) have been proposed as TBC, due to their high thermal expansion coefficient, higher thermal shock resistance and low corrosion rate. In this study, CeO2 was coated on Titanium alloy by magnetron sputtering. Deposition time was varied as 30 mins, 60 mins and 90 mins respectively, to achieve the variation in thickness of coating. Thickness of the coated specimen was measured by atomic force microscopy and found to be 500 nm, 120 nm and 80 nm respectively. Surface roughness of the corresponding coated surfaces is 152.28 nm, 18.41 nm and 18.65 nm. The Vickers hardness was found to increase with decrease in coating thickness upto certain extent then decreases.

A Study on the Development of an Effective Framework for Implementation and Sustenance of an Obsolescence Material Management System in an Aerospace Supplier Manufacturing Industry Environment

Obsolescence Material management plays an important and vital role in today’s modern Aerospace manufacturing, Aerospace Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul industry as well as Aerospace Distributors. Aerospace vehicles have a considerable longer product life-cycle when compared to any other consumer goods like automobile and electronics industry. With the advent of new, disruptive technologies, many sources and supplies of materials including COTS and Standard catalogue parts, components and goods, which are widely used in an Aerospace manufacturing environment, are diminishing at a considerable rate and thus result in their obsolescence before the end disposal of the product life cycle. It is one of the leading causes to the sale of counterfeit and fraudulent parts and components, which can result in considerable deterioration of Quality and Cost to Customer.

Materials Degradation in Mechanical Design Wear, Corrosion, Fatigue and their Interactions

Materials degradation from environmental conditions is a common factor that will often occur in mechanical equipment used in every type of environment. These processes can frequently materialize in unpredicted and harmful ways, especially when they interact and lead to early component damage or failure. This five-session course will summarize the mechanisms that cause materials and mechanical components to degrade in service through exposure to deleterious mechanical and environmental conditions.

Heat Treatment of Carbon and Low-Alloy Steel Parts Minimum Tensile Strength Below 220 ksi (1517 MPa)

This specification, in conjunction with the general requirements for steel heat treatment covered in AMS2759, establishes the requirements for heat treatment of carbon and low-alloy steel parts to minimum ultimate tensile strengths below 220 ksi (1517 MPa). Parts are defined in AMS2759. Due to limited hardenability in these materials, there are size limits in this specification.
