Modelling the orientation and direction dependence of the critical resolved shear stress of nickel-base superalloy single crystals
Abstract The orientation and direction dependence of the critical resolved shear stress was determined experimentally for the chromium-rich superalloy SC 16 at 650, 750 and 850°C and a constantExpand

“Cube slip” in near-[111] oriented specimens of a single-crystal nickel-base superalloy
In the past few years, it has been discussed with increasing frequency, whether cube slip does occur in {gamma}{prime} hardened nickel-base superalloys. There are two basic methods to detect cubeExpand

A comprehensive microscopic study of third body formation at the interface between a brake pad and brake disc during the final stage of a pin-on-disc test
In order to preserve contact situations occurring during a tribological test, an experiment was performed to investigate the pin–disc interface while keeping the pin pressed against the disc. The pinExpand

A deep etching mechanism for trench-bridging silicon nanowires.
Introducing a single silicon nanowire with a known orientation and dimensions to a specific layout location constitutes a major challenge. The challenge becomes even more formidable, if one choosesExpand

Mechanical and thermal response of a nickel-base superalloy upon grinding with high removal rates
The formation of a plastically deformed and a heat affected zone during grinding of superalloy IN738LC with a high depth of cut but slow work speed (creep feed grinding) was investigated. In order toExpand
