Temperature and Stress Controlled Surface Manipulation in Ni-Al Nano- Layers

DR Mahapatra and VK Sutrakar and RVN Melnik, NANOTECH CONFERENCE & EXPO 2009, VOL 3, TECHNICAL PROCEEDINGS: NANOTECHNOLOGY 2009: BIOFUELS, RENEWABLE ENERGY, COATINGS FLUIDICS AND COMPACT MODELING, 227-230 (2009).

In the present paper the effects of temperature and high strain rate loading on the formation of various surface patterns in Ni-Al nano- layers are discussed. Effects of boundary conditions on the B2 -> BCT phase transformation in the nano-layer are also discussed. This study is aimed at developing several interesting patterned surface structures in Ni-Al nanolayer by controlling the phase transformation temperature and mechanical loading.
