A.A. Vasilyev, D.F. Sokolov, S.F. Sokolov, A.A. Zisman & N.G. Kolbasnikov
The combined effect of boron addition and ausforming on the structure of low carbon low alloyed steel after the transformation of austenite has been investigated in a wide range of cooling rates. It is shown that boron hinders formation of polygonal ferrite in continuous cooling regardless of austenite predeformation and suppresses appearance of acicular ferrite. A qualitative explanation of this effect is proposed in terms of the deformation induced boron segregation on boundaries of austenite...

The characteristics of terahertz (THz) irradiation generated by a silicon nanosandwich structure under the conditions of a stabilized drain-source current are demonstrated. The frequency of irradiation arising from the quantum Faraday effect is determined by the parameters of microcavities embedded in the edge channels of a silicon nanosandwich structure confined by the negative-U centers. The obtained characteristics of a compact THz irradiation source determine the basis for highly effective medical applications.

Isomeres and isotopes of carbon

The nuclear geometry has been developed by analogy with the fullerene geometry. On the base of this geometric approach, the structure of carbon isomers and isotopes, which can be obtained by means of nuclear synthesis, has been designed. The mechanisms of possible nuclear reaction are discussed. Carbon is an unusual element. It has four isomers of different symmetry: three-fold, six-fold and tetrahedral ones, two being stable and one halfstable. The isotopes of carbon inherit the...

Simple Wigner-Langevin equation

Andrey L. Sanin
A new dynamical equation is derived by substituting the Schrödinger-LangevinKostin equation into the definition for the Wigner function, it can be called the quantumclassical Wigner-Langevin equation. The proposed equation contains partial derivatives for time and phase space variables of the Wigner function, its coefficients are spatial derivatives of potentials that take into account friction, white noise and external influence. The transition to the classical regime of motion is also discussed.

Nuclear geometry: from hydrogen to boron

Alexander I. Melker
Possible ways of nuclear synthesis in the range from hydrogen to boron are studied. The geometric model of these nuclei is suggested. The basis for this model is the analogy between tetrahedral fullerene C4 and helium 2He4 . It is assumed that a nucleus of helium 2He4 has the form of a tetrahedron, where: 1) All the apices are equivalent and therefore they are protons, 2) Each neutron in a nucleus decomposes into a proton...

Migration of nonequilibrium grain boundaries in metal-graphene composites with ultrafine-grained matrix

S.V. Bobylev
We propose a theoretical model describing stress-induced migration of nonequilibrium grain boundaries constrained by the presence of second phase inclusions in metal-graphene composites with the ultrafine-grained matrix. Within the framework of the model, the structure of nonequilibrium boundaries is represented as a combination of dislocation structure of equilibrium boundary and dislocations introduced from outside, trapped by the boundary during deformation. Using the disclination theory approach, a change in the energy of the system associated with...


Alexander I. Melker, Maria A. Krupina & Aleksandra N. Matvienko
We have studied possible ways of generating and growing the fullerenes having four-fold symmetry. Beginning with cyclobutane C4H8 and clusters C8, we obtained elementary fullerenes C8 and mini-fullerenes C16, which produce the following fullerenes from C24 to C64, perfect (basic) and imperfect, as well as nanotubes. The imperfection is connected either with extra 'interstitial' or 'vacancy' carbon dimers, both types of dimers playing the role of defects. Only the basic fullerenes C24, C32, C40, C48,...

The theoretical calculation was performed for the tensile strength according to the rule of mixtures. The dependences of tensile...

Deformation mechanism of bimodal metal-graphene composites with nanotwinned structure

N.V. Skiba
The theoretical model is suggested which describes micromechanisms of plastic deformation in bimodal metal-graphene composite consisting of large grains embedded into nanocrystalline/ultrafine-grained metal-matrix reinforced by graphene inclusions. In the framework of the model, lattice dislocation slip and grain boundary sliding has occurred in nanocrystalline/ultrafine-grained matrix, and lattice dislocation slip and migration of twin boundaries are realized in large grains with a nanotwinned structure providing the plastic deformation of bimodal metal-graphene composite. With this assumption, the...

A.A. Vasilyev, S.F. Sokolov & D.F. Sokolov
The paper represents a model for the tempering effects on quenched bainitic-martensitic steels that describes both the recovery and precipitation phenomena. The latter involves various carbides (Fe3C, V4C3, Mo2C, Cr7C3) and particles of pure Cu. Thermodynamic driving forces in the nucleation of the considered particles have been calculated using empirical formulas obtained with the Thermo-Calc software. The predicted formation kinetics for the considered carbides and Cu particles complies well with relevant experimental data.

A.M. Krivtsov, E.A. Podolskaya & V.Yu. Shubina
An asymptotic representation is obtained at large times for the thermal wavefront propagating in a one-dimensional harmonic crystal. The propagation of thermal waves from a localized thermal perturbation and the transition zone between regions with different temperatures is considered. An explicit solution is given for a number of the simplest forms of the initial temperature distribution. It is shown that during the wave evolution, the wavefront smoothes, e.g., for a power-law dependence its degree increases...

A.A. Vasilyev, D.F. Sokolov, S.F. Sokolov & A.A. Zisman
Transformation kinetics of undeformed and deformed austenite during continuous cooling has been investigated on several industrial steels. Dimensions of both prior austenite grains and ferrite grains in ferrite-pearlite structures obtained for various states of parent austenite and cooling rates were determined. Based on the obtained experimental data a physically motivated model is formulated for the ferritic transformation with allowance for the effects of deformation and concurrent recovery of austenite. Under consideration is the deformation influence...

V.L. Leontiev & I.V. Efremenkov
A novel 2D finite element (FE) associated with orthogonal finite functions (OFF, orthogonal splines) was developed for the ANSYS software and was tested early. The expansion of this method is presented here. The novel 3D FE, connected with 3D OFF is proposed for modeling and investigation of the stress-strain state of homogeneous and heterogeneous elastic bodies.

Alexander I. Melker, Aleksandra N. Matvienko & Maria A. Krupina
We have systematized possible ways of forming the isomers of midi-fullerenes, namely C30, C32, C34 C36, C38 and C40. Similar to the isomers of midi-fullerenes from C20 to C28, there are three the most natural mechanisms of their formation: 1) Embedding carbon dimers into initial fullerenes; 2) Fusion of carbon cupolas having the same symmetry; and 3) Fusion of fullerenes having compatible symmetry. The energies of the fullerenes calculated through the use of molecular mechanics...

Natural isomers of fullerenes from C20 to C28

Alexander I. Melker & Aleksandra N. Matvienko
We have systematized possible ways of forming the isomers of midi-fullerenes, namely C22, C24, C26 and C28. There are three the most natural mechanisms of their obtaining: embedding carbon dimers into initial fullerenes; fusion of carbon cupolas having the same symmetry; fusion of fullerenes having compatible symmetry. The minimum energy fullerenes are obtained through the use of the first mechanism. It is worth noting that these fullerenes conserve the topological three-fold symmetry. At the same...


E.V. Shel
In the proposed paper the Planar 3D model of hydraulic fracturing was investigated. All of the hydraulic fracturing equations were substituted into the mass conservation law and scaled. Nontrivial dimensionless parameters of the problem were found. Asymptotic regimes of the equation, the Radial or the Pseudo3D model, correspond to the infinitely small or the infinitely large dimensionless parameters. Thus, the limiting conditions of these models were found in the terms of the dimensionless parameters.
