The Synthesis of High Strength Titanium Alloy and Titanium Alloy Matrix Composite by Powder Compact Extrusion from Blended Elemental Powders(University of Waikato, 2016)Powder compact extrusion (PCE) from blended elemental powders is an effective way to produce titanium alloys and titanium matrix composites with high performance. Its main advantage is cost effectiveness, where high cost ...
Thermal Stability, Microstructures and Mechanical Properties of Nanostructured/Ultrafine Structured Cu-5vol.%Al₂O₃ Nanocomposites Fabricated by High Energy Mechanical Milling and Powder Compact Extrusion(University of Waikato, 2014)Ultrafine structured metal matrix nanocomposites (MMNCs) have received much attention due to their attractive engineering applications and scientific interest. On the engineering aspect, ultrafine structured MMNCs have a ...
(University of Waikato, 2011)Electrochemical techniques provide convenient and environmentally compatible ways of bringing about chemical transformations. However they generally lose their economic viability when used with low conducting electrolyte ...
