Chapter Types of Cast Iron Gray iron graphite flakes weak & brittle in tension stronger in compression excellent vibrational dampening wear resistant Ductile iron add Mg and/or Ce graphite as nodules not flakes matrix often pearlite – stronger but less ductile Adapted from Fig. 13.3(a) & (b), Callister & Rethwisch 3e.

Chapter Example: ZrO 2 as an oxygen sensor Principle: Increase diffusion rate of oxygen to produce rapid response of sensor signal to change in oxygen concentration Ceramics Application: Sensors A substituting Ca 2+ ion removes a Zr 4+ ion and an O 2- ion. Ca 2+ Approach: Add Ca impurity to ZrO 2 : -- increases O 2- vacancies -- increases O 2- diffusion rate reference gas at fixed oxygen content O 2- diffusion gas with an unknown, higher oxygen content - + voltage difference produced! sensor Operation: -- voltage difference produced when O 2- ions diffuse from the external surface through the sensor to the reference gas surface. -- magnitude of voltage difference partial pressure of oxygen at the external surface

Chapter Advanced Ceramics: Materials for Automobile Engines Advantages: –Operate at high temperatures – high efficiencies –Low frictional losses –Operate without a cooling system –Lower weights than current engines Disadvantages: –Ceramic materials are brittle –Difficult to remove internal voids (that weaken structures) –Ceramic parts are difficult to form and machine Potential candidate materials: Si 3 N 4, SiC, & ZrO 2 Possible engine parts: engine block & piston coatings
Chapter Advanced Ceramics: Materials for Ceramic Armor Components: -- Outer facing plates -- Backing sheet Properties/Materials: -- Facing plates -- hard and brittle — fracture high-velocity projectile — Al 2 O 3, B 4 C, SiC, TiB 2 -- Backing sheets -- soft and ductile — deform and absorb remaining energy — aluminum, synthetic fiber laminates
Chapter Polymer Types – Fibers Fibers - length/diameter >100 Primary use is in textiles. Fiber characteristics: –high tensile strengths –high degrees of crystallinity –structures containing polar groups Formed by spinning – extrude polymer through a spinneret (a die containing many small orifices) – the spun fibers are drawn under tension – leads to highly aligned chains - fibrillar structure
Chapter Polymer Types – Miscellaneous Coatings – thin polymer films applied to surfaces – i.e., paints, varnishes –protects from corrosion/degradation –decorative – improves appearance –can provide electrical insulation Adhesives – bonds two solid materials (adherands) – bonding types: 1. Secondary – van der Waals forces 2. Mechanical – penetration into pores/crevices Films – produced by blown film extrusion Foams – gas bubbles incorporated into plastic
