Efficiency of the Functional Distribution of Solid Fuel in Layered System Consisting of Ore-Flux-Fuel Compositions

In this article processes of pelletizing and sintering iron ore pellets with different distribution of solid fuel in multilayer system were experimentally investigated. The influence of the functional distribution of solid fuels on the compressive strength and the degree of metallization fired pellets was studied. Compressive strength of burnt pellets with basicity of 1.4, which contain increased amounts of particulate fuel in range of 1,6–2,35 kN/pellet and not characterized by high indices, although GOST has indices on level 0,2–0,95 kN /pellet.

Effect of Microwave Sintering Temperature on Structure and Mechanical Properties of Hydroxyapatite Ceramics

The aim of the paper was to investigate features of microwave sintering of biogenic hydroxyapatite obtained for filling of various bone defects in medicine. The samples were prepared at high-temperature muffle furnace (1,5 kW, 2,45 GHz) at 800, 900, 1000 and 1100 С. It was established that increasing of microwave sintering temperature did not lead to a rapid increasing of grain size and agglomerate formation. The prepared materials have homogeneous fine-grained structure with average grain size 0,42–0,56 мm and average pore size is equal to 0,5 мm.

Phase Composition, Microstructure and Mechanical Properties of AlCrCoCuFeNiх High-Entropy Alloys System

In this study, the AlCrCoCuFeNiх (where х = 0; 0,5; 1; 2 and 3) high-entropy alloys were prepared by vacuum arc melting and their phase composition, microstructures and mechanical properties were investigated. According to X-Ray analysis data, phase composition of alloys depending on Ni content. It was found that the structure transformed from mixture B2+FCC solid solutions into FCC solid solution with the increase of Ni content. Quantity of BCC phase solid solution is decreased with increasing Ni content, and, respectively, the quantity of FCC phase solid solution increases.

Model of Bof Lapping with Setted Temperature and Carbon Content

In order to increase the accuracy of process control refinement converter smelting, a series of mathematical models of controlling were developed. Melting model was created to calculate the charge (“static control”), control fuse in the process of purging (“dynamic management”) and finishing melting after the measurement of carbon content and temperature of the bath without interrupting the purge and calculation of reductants. The influence of control actions on the process of finishing converter smelting was studied.
