Duplex stainless steels (DSS) may be defined as a category of steels with a two-phase ferritic-austenitic microstructure, which combines good mechanical and corrosion properties. However, these steels can undergo significant microstructural modification as a consequence of either thermo-mechanical treatments (ferrite decomposition, which causes σ- and(More)
A study was carried out on the aging behaviour of a solution treated 6082 aluminium alloy deformed by equal channel angular pressing up to six passes. Aging of the so obtained ultrafine alloy was studied by DSC and TEM analyses as well as by isothermal treatments at 130, 160 and 180 C. The results showed that the formation of metastable 00 and 0(More)
Shape memory alloys based on NiTi have found their main applications in manufacturing of new biomedical devices mainly in surgery tools, stents and orthopedics. Porous NiTi can exhibit an engineering elastic modulus comparable to that of cortical bone (12-17 GPa). This condition, combined with proper pore size, allows good osteointegration. Open cells(More)
