The primary boundary of the CANDU reactor consists of Zr-2.5%Nb alloy pressure tubes and SA106 alloy feeder pipes. The pressure tubes are exposed to fast neutron (E>1Mev) irradiation during reactor operation, and experience dimensional changes. The actual dimensional change in the pressure tube during in-service operation is greater than the..... More

DOI: https://doi.org/10.3365/KJMM.2022.60.5.360

This study investigated the effect of the electromagnetic stirring (EMS) process on the microstructure and mechanical properties of hyper-eutectic Al-15 wt.%Si alloy. The tensile and high-cycle fatigue properties of the EMS Al-15wt.%Si alloy were examined and compared with conventional direct chill (DC) cast alloy. The initial microstructure of the as-cast.....

370 Kerfless Si Wafering Using Al Metal Paste, Epoxy and Ni Electroplating as Stress-Induced Layer
Young Joon Cho, Hyo Sik Chang
Korean J. Met. Mater. 2022;60(5):370-375.   Published online 2022 Apr 22
DOI: https://doi.org/10.3365/KJMM.2022.60.5.370

Kerfless wafering is a beneficial technique that enhances the cost effectiveness of crystalline silicon (c-Si) solar cells, preventing silicon (Si) waste during diamond sawing. This study compared the advantages of three stress layers for kerfless wafering: aluminum (Al) paste, epoxy-, and electroplated nickel (Ni). These materials demonstrated the ability to..... More

376 Solid-State Synthesis and Thermoelectric Properties of Ge-Doped Tetrahedrites Cu12Sb4-yGeyS13
Se-In Jeong, Il-Ho Kim
Korean J. Met. Mater. 2022;60(5):376-383.   Published online 2022 Apr 22
DOI: https://doi.org/10.3365/KJMM.2022.60.5.376

Ge-doped tetrahedrites Cu12Sb4-yGeyS13 (y = 0.1–0.4) were prepared using mechanical alloying and hot pressing. An X-ray diffraction analysis after mechanical alloying showed a single tetrahedrite phase without secondary phases. The tetrahedrite phase was stable after hot pressing at 723 K under 70 MPa. As the Ge content increased, the lattice..... More

384 Preparation and Investigation of Thermoelectric Properties of Cu3SbS4-Cu3SbSe4 Solid Solutions
Go-Eun Lee, Il-Ho Kim
Korean J. Met. Mater. 2022;60(5):384-390.   Published online 2022 Apr 22
DOI: https://doi.org/10.3365/KJMM.2022.60.5.384

Cu-based ternary chalcogenides composed of earth-abundant and nontoxic elements are considered promising thermoelectric materials, although there are few reports on them. In our previous studies, optimal mechanical alloying (MA) and hot pressing (HP) were used to synthesize Cu3SbS4 (famatinite) and Cu3SbSe4 (permingeatite). In this study, solid solutions of Cu3SbS4-ySey (y..... More

391 Optimization of Two-Stage Hybrid Forming Process via Quantitative Assessment of Mechanical Properties in AA5052
Sang Soo Lee, Seon Du Choi, Ho Geun Shin, Suman Timilsina, Seong Min Jang, Young Seon Lee, YongNam Kwon, Ji Sik Kim
Korean J. Met. Mater. 2022;60(5):391-399.   Published online 2022 Apr 22
DOI: https://doi.org/10.3365/KJMM.2022.60.5.391

Superplastic forming (SPF) is a promising approach used for manufacturing parts with complex geometries, especially in the automotive, aerospace, and marine industries. However, the wider use of this method is limited by issues of low forming rate, high-temperature requirement, non-uniform thickness distribution, and expensive base materials. The two-stage hybrid forming..... More
