AbstractThis paper describes some underlying principles of multicomponent and high entropy alloys, and gives some examples of these materials. Different types of multicomponent alloy and different methods of accessing multicomponent phase space are discussed. The alloys were manufactured by conventional and high speed solidification techniques, and their macroscopic, microscopic and nanoscale structures were studied by optical, X-ray and electron microscope methods. They exhibit a variety of amorphous, quasicrystalline, dendritic and eutectic structures.

Effects of silicon addition and process conditions on ¿-phase sintering, sinter hardening, andYouseffi, Mansour; Jeyacheya, F.M.; Wright, Christopher S. (2002)Alpha phase sintering, sinter hardening, and mechanical properties of prealloyed Fe-1.5Mo base powder with and without additions of elemental Si, ferrosilicon, and carbon under various process conditions have been investigated. Liquid paraffin, as a new lubricating agent, was found to be useful in reducing segregation, interparticle and die wall frictions, as well as reducing ejection forces and die and tool wear. It was found that addition of Si to the base powder enhanced the sintering process by stabilisation of the ¿-phase and formation of two kinds of liquid phase at ~1045 and ~1180°C, corresponding to the solidus and liquidus temperatures, respectively. This addition increased the tensile strength of the as sintered Fe-1.5Mo from 174 to 445 MPa owing to massive solid solution strengthening effect of Si. An optimum sinter hardenable alloy, of composition Fe-1.5Mo + 3Si + 1.2C, provided a high sintered density of 7.55 g cm-3, tensile and bend strengths of 764 and 1405 MPa, respectively, with 2.5% elongation, after sintering at 1250°C for 1 h under hydrogen or vacuum using moderate cooling rates of ¿ 20 K min-1. Faster cooling rates caused brittleness and very low UTS for the high carbon steel. Full heat treatment improved the UTS by 200 MPa which was useful only for the high carbon steel with high cooling rates ¿ 30 K min-1. Depending on the cooling rate, the as sintered microstructures consisted of mainly fine or coarse pearlite, bainite, martensite, and some retained austenite with hardness in the range 250-720 HV10. Some proeutectoid grain boundary cementites were also present in the as sintered high carbon steel. This work, therefore, has shown that high densities with acceptable microstructures and good mechanical properties are achievable with single stage compaction and single sintering operations by using the optimum process conditions and alloying composition without the need for a post-sintering heat treatment.

The role of stirring time on the metallurgical and mechanical properties during modified friction stir clinching of AA6061-T6 and AA7075-T6 sheetsMemon, S.; Paidar, M.; Ojo, O.O.; Cooke, Kavian O.; Babaei, B.; Masoumnezhad, M. (2020-12)In this study, the modified friction stir clinching process was successfully utilized to weld the AA7075-T6 to AA6061-T6 aluminum alloys. The approach of this study was to appraise the influence of the stirring time (6, 12, and 18 s) on the metallurgical and mechanical behavior of the welded samples. The microstructural study demonstrated that stirring time significantly affected joint properties and material flow, which can be ascribed to the discrepancy in the properties of the Al alloys used in this study. Void, local melting and defect-free joints were produced under the stirring times of 6 s, 18 s, and 12 s respectively. It was found that tensile/shear strength increased significantly from 63.5 MPa to 109 MPa as the stirring time increased from 6 s to 12 s, while a further increase in the stirring time to 18 s significantly decreased the joint's strength to 76.1 MPa. The observed failed samples showed that stirring time did not influence fracture mode.
