Corrosion and Wear Analysis in Marine Transport Constructions

Abstract

Corrosion is one of the most common naturally occurring processes studied by thermodynamics, which includes oxidation process, metal disruption, and its chemical and electrochemical effects under environmental influence. Corrosion of metal and equipment accounts for a considerable proportion of total corrosion losses, thus providing the impetus for further investigation and developments related to corrosion protection in order to provide transport systems and industry with corrosion preventive materials and tools.

Irregular shaping of polystyrene nanosphere array by plasma etching

Abstract

The morphology of nanospheres is crucial for designing the nanofabrication in the nanosphere lithography. Here, by plasma etching, the controllable tailoring of the nanosphere is realized and its morphology dependence on the initial shape, microscopic roughness, and the etching conditions is investigated quantitatively. The results show that the shape evolution strongly depends on the etching gas, power, and process duration. Particularly, the aspect ratio (diameter/height) significantly increases with violent etching, turning the spherical shape into tiny ellipsoidal nanoparticles. The findings are practical to the protocol of non-uniform etching of nanoobjects and provide the useful design tool for the device fabrication at nanoscale.

Photodecomposition of Rhodamine B on TiO2/SiO2 thin films prepared by sol-gel method

Abstract

Glasses showing catalytic effect have been of much interest recently because the catalytic layer is very effective in reducing of pollutants. The use of these glasses may bring reduction in cleaning costs. There are several methods of preparation of TiO2 with good catalytic properties, but sol-gel technique offers an opportunity to enhance catalytic effect by precise optimization of the composition and microstructure of the layer. This study concerns optimization of the composition and preparation technology of catalytic layers based on SiO2-TiO2 system. Catalytic effect was studied using Rhodamine B as a sensor. UV-VIS and photoelectron spectroscopy were the main research tools used in this study.

Design of underground structures and analysis of self-support capacity

Abstract

The complicated rock structures and the stability of surrounding rocks of the underground powerhouse are key ground mechanical challenges for hydropower projects. In this paper, an example of contributing self-support capacity of rock mass to evaluate optimised support for long-term usage of structure is given. It describes importance of investigations in the initial in situ stress distribution, rock mechanical and geological properties, engineering rock mass classifications by different methods, numerical modelling, comparison of tools for stability and support analysis and proper stability control for rock excavation and support. The results show that after underground excavations in hard rock, detailed analysis of measures to investigate deformation and self-supporting capacity creation is useful and a cost-saving procedure.
