Operando odd random phase electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (ORP-EIS) for in-situ monitoring of the Zr-based conversion coating growth in the presence of (in)organic additives Vrije Universiteit Brussel
FEM modelling to predict spatiotemporally resolved water uptake in organic coatings: Experimental validation by odd random phase electrochemical impedance spectroscopy measurements Vrije Universiteit Brussel
uptake in organic coatings. To this aim, we start from a physical model, where not only Fickian diffusion of
water is taken into account but also the adsorption/desorption reaction of water on the polymer matrix. Starting
from a number of important coating properties and crucial model parameters, derived from gravimetric and
Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) measurements as the model input, the local water concentration ...
Geochemical characterization of scoriaceous and unmelted micrometeorites from the Sør Rondane Mountains, East Antarctica: Links to chondritic parent bodies and the effects of alteration Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Micrometeorites originate from the interplanetary dust complex and continuously fall to the Earth's surface in large amounts. About 10 to 20% of micrometeorites are not melted upon reaching the Earth's surface, preserving the primary features and characteristics of the parent material. Consequently, unmelted micrometeorites, together with scoriaceous micrometeorites, an intermediate form between cosmic spherules and unmelted micrometeorites, ...

Surface modification of biodegradable Mg alloy by adapting µEDM capabilities with cryogenically-treated tool electrodes Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Biomaterials are engineered to develop an interaction with living cells for therapeutic and diagnostic purposes. The last decade reported a tremendously rising shift in the requirement for miniaturized biomedical implants exhibiting high precision and comprising various biomaterials such as non-biodegradable titanium (Ti) alloys and biodegradable magnesium (Mg) alloys. The excellent mechanical properties and lightweight characteristics of Mg ...
Improvement of absorbing stability of carbon nanofibers in sub-terahertz domain using the surface modification of zinc oxide Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Study on the roles of bisulfite in the stress corrosion cracking of 7050-T7451 aluminum alloy in the thin electrolyte layer environment Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Effect of bisulfite (HSO3-) on the stress corrosion cracking (SCC) behavior of 7050-T7451 aluminum alloy in the thin electrolyte layer environment in the presence of Cl- is investigated. Addition of HSO3- inhibits the corrosion initiation but promotes the corrosion propagation and hydrogen uptake. With a quantitative calculation, the HSO3- is demonstrated to significantly facilitate the synergistic effect between stress, corrosion, and ...
