Micropillar compression for finding heat-tolerant alloys

Wednesday, January 13, 2021 - 7:00am

Now, scientists at Kyoto University in Japan have measured what happens at the micro-level when pressure is applied on tiny samples of these materials.

Key Points: 
  • Now, scientists at Kyoto University in Japan have measured what happens at the micro-level when pressure is applied on tiny samples of these materials.
  • The scientists measured the plastic deformation that happened when a tiny probe exerted force on the micropillar specimens with various loading axis orientations.
  • "Our results demonstrate the cutting edge of research into plastic deformation behaviour in crystalline materials," says Kyosuke Kishida, the study's corresponding author.
  • This could mean alpha-Nb5Si3 is at a disadvantage compared to Mo5SiB2 for use as a strengthening component in metal-based alloys.

BrainHQ is unique among brain training programs because of the deep science behind the product.

Key Points: 
  • BrainHQ is unique among brain training programs because of the deep science behind the product.
  • Studies also show structural changes in the brain, indicative of more efficient operations and improved brain health.
  • "BrainHQ is the culmination of decades of research in neuroscience and brain plasticity," said Dr. Henry Mahncke, CEO of Posit Science.
  • ISB is an affiliate of Providence St. Joseph Health, one of the largest not-for-profit health care systems in the United States.
