    Steel hardness vs yield or ultimate strength?

    I have found sources that state hardness can't be correlated to yield strength, but only to ultimate strength. Other sources state the opposite. Yet other sources claim you can do both with different equations. Can someone direct me to a source that addresses my question, or addresses the...

    Programs Physic undergrad and material minor?

    Okay there's a lot to chow down here but I am at a standstill. Ultimately there are too many variables and unknowns but I need a framework. I am transferring over to ASU from a community college and have declared physics as my major. This is something I have planned on for a while because I am...

    Co precipitation of ceria-zirconia-lanthana catalyst support

    My question concerns the resultant particles of a co precipitation reaction. What effects occur when you accelerate/decelerate a co precipitation reaction? What are optimal conditions (speed, etc.) for this process? I am interested primarily in the effects on the resultant powder. Thank you.

    Phase transformation in shape memory alloys

    Dear all, As part of my MSc thesis I am using molecular dynamics simulation to study the pseudoelastic effect of Cu-Zr shape memory alloy during a tensile and shear tests. My question is related to the stress induced phase transformations during both tests. During the tensile test I can...

    What does it mean for a surface to be "decorated"?

    In the context of surface science and materials science, what does it exactly mean when a surface is, say, "metal-decorated"? By reading plenty of journals, I am assuming that it means that the atom is adsorbed on the surface, which means that the atom that "decorates" the surface is bonding on...
