Fundamentals of Multicomponent Diffusion in Multiphase AlloysYongho Sohn, University of Central Florida, MET DMR-0238356

Motivation: Diffusion plays an important role in development and applications of materials that underpin many products and processes. This program aims to advance in phenomenological descriptions and experimental techniques for understanding multicomponent-multiphase diffusion through an integration of fundamental laboratory research and several education/outreach programs.

  • Facility Development:
  • Experimental Facility Dedicated for Solid-Solid Diffusion Couple Studies: Arc Melt, Quartz Capsule, Hydrogen Flush System, Furnaces and Electron Probe Microanalysis.
  • Experimental Research:
  • Microstructural Analysis and Quantitative Assessment of Interdiffusion Between NiAl and Various Superalloys (in Collaboration with Siemens, GE and Exxon-Mobil).
  • Study of Ternary Diffusion and Phase Equilibria in U-Mo-Al-X Alloys (X = Si, Zr, Ti, Nb) for Nuclear Fuel Applications (Contract from Idaho National Laboratory and Synergistic Research Activities).
  • Microstructural Evolution (i.e., Multiphase Diffusion Couples) in Fe-Ni-Al and Ni-Cr-Al Alloys (in Collaboration with Oak Ridge National Laboratory
  • Ternary Diffusion and Oxidation in Ni-Cr-X and Fe-Ni-Cr-X (X=Al, Si, Ge, Pd) Alloy (in Collaboration with ORNL).
  • Modeling & Phenomenology
  • Phase-Field Simulation of Multiphase Ternary Diffusion Couple with Composition-Dependent Thermodynamics and Mobilities.
  • Developed Framework for Generalized Description of Interdiffusion Fluxes under Multiple Gradients.

Investigating Interdiffusion Microstructure and Analyzing Concentration Profiles for Alloys Critical in Energy Production.

Determination of Composition-Dependent Interdiffusion Coefficient based on Multiples Moments (p) of Interdiffusion Fluxes.
