Microstructure and mechanical properties of gadolinium- and misch metal-added Mg–Al alloy

The study investigates the effects of individual and combined additions of gadolinium (Gd) and misch metal (MM) on the microstructure and mechanical properties of Mg–4Al and Mg–9Al alloys. The results show that the additions significantly alter …


A scalable synthesis of silicon nanoparticles as high-performance anode material for lithium-ion batteries

In this work, a scalable and cost-effective method including mechanical milling, centrifugation and spray drying was developed to fabricate Si nanoparticles. The synthesized Si nanoparticles show an average size of 62 nm and exhibit a narrow …


Controlled pore size of Pt/KIT-6 used for propane total oxidation

Mesoporous silica KIT-6 with different pore sizes was controllably synthesized by hydrothermal methods. The same contents of Pt were loaded on KIT-6 supports to apply for propane total oxidation. Low-angle X-ray diffraction (XRD), nitrogen …


Evolution of silicon particle damage on fatigue crack initiation and early propagation in an aluminum alloy

Low-cycle fatigue tests under both mechanical cyclic and thermal cyclic loadings were conducted to study the behavior of fatigue crack initiation and early propagation by means of metallographic and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The damage …


Hydrogen storage properties of Nb-compounds-catalyzed LiBH4–MgH2

In order to improve the hydrogen storage properties of LiBH4–MgH2 composite, two different kinds of Nb-based catalysts, NbC and NbF5, were added to LiBH4–MgH2 composite by ball milling, and the effect of catalysts on hydrogen storage properties of …

IT-Risikomanagement im Produktionsumfeld

Mit der stetigen Zunahme der IT in Produktionsumgebungen steigt mit der Effizienz auch die Gefährdung gegenüber Schadsoftware oder Hackerangriffen. Best-Practices aus dem Bereich der Office-IT eignen sich leider oftmals nicht für Produktionsumgebungen. Dieser Beitrag erläutert die Gründe hierfür und liefert eine Übersicht vorhandener Best-Practice-Dokumente für das Produktionsumfeld. Jetzt gratis downloaden!
