Wear Resistance and Tribological Features of Ultra-Fine-Grained Al-Mg Alloys Processed by Constrained Groove Pressing-Cross Route

In the present study, the wear behavior of ultra-fine grained (UFG) Al-Mg alloys produced by a severe plastic deformation (SPD) method was assessed and compared against the annealed coarse-grained alloy. To this end, weight loss, wear resistance …


Effect of Delta Ferrite on Microstructure and Mechanical Properties of High-Chromium Martensitic Steel

The fusion zone of modified 9Cr-1Mo steel experiencing a peak temperature of 1450 °C and varying cooling rates between 1 and 40 °C/s from the peak temperature is simulated using Gleeble thermal simulator. Mechanical properties of the simulated …


Structure and Anticorrosion, Friction, and Wear Characteristics of Pure Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC), Cr-DLC, and Cr-H-DLC Films on AZ91D Mg Alloy

This study evaluated the protection against corrosion and wear afforded to AZ91D Mg alloy by coatings of hydrogen-free and low-Cr-doped hydrogenated diamond-like carbon (DLC) films. The microstructure and corrosion resistance were evaluated using …


Corrosion of Mild Steel Buried Underground for 3 Years in Different Soils of Varying Textures

The effect of moisture content and soil texture on the corrosion behavior of mild steel coupons buried for 3 years in different soils was estimated from weight loss measurements and electrochemical techniques such as Tafel plots and …


Influence of Effective Physical Contact Area on Microstructure and Mechanical Properties of Diffusion-Bonded TC4/1060Al Joints

In the present study, dissimilar TC4 alloy and 1060Al alloy were successfully diffusion-bonded at a very low temperature about 410 °C by improving the effective physical contact area. A sound joint with a crack-free interface and a high shear …

About this journal

The Journal of Materials Engineering and Performance (JMEP) offers articles that assist in solving day-to-day engineering challenges, especially those involving components for larger systems. Coverage includes all aspects of materials selection, design, processing characterization and evaluation. Topics include improvement of materials properties through processes and process control of casting, forming, heat treating, surface modification and coating, and fabrication.

Testing and characterization are demonstrated through mechanical and physical tests, NDE, metallography, failure analysis, corrosion resistance, chemical analysis, surface characterization, and microanalysis of surfaces, features and fractures.

The Journal of Materials Engineering and Performance publishes contributions on all aspects of materials selection, design, processing, characterization, and evaluation. The scope includes all materials used in engineering applications, especially those that typically result in components for larger systems.

This is a publication of ASM International, The Materials Information Society.
