Feasibility Study of a Cyanide Leach Circuit and Supporting Facilities
This senior design project was completed in collaboration with Barrick Gold Corporation and the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering at the University of Nevada, Reno. A problem statement was given to the team ...
Comparison of Nitronic 50 and Stainless Steel 316 for use in Supercritical Water Environments
Increased efficiency can greatly benefit any mode of power production. Many proposed coal, natural gas, and nuclear reactors attempt to realize this goal through the use of increased operating temperatures and pressures, ...
Cu-Zn-Al Shape Memory Alloy with Enhanced Hardness and Oxidation resistance
In this research, a novel polycrystalline Cu-21Zn-6Al shape memory alloy was fabricated and examined. This alloy has unique binary stable phases under recovering stage and two different types of martensite that can be ...
Solvothermal Process Assisted Sensitization of 1D Anodized TiO2 Nanotubes with 0D Cadmium Chalcogenides (CdTe, CdS) for Efficient Solar to Clean Energy Generation
The creation of an n-n heterojunction between TiO2 nanotubes (T_NT) and CdTe nanocrystals (which mostly exist as p-type) is crucial for realizing the benefits of efficient directional charge transport in a photoanode of ...
Computational Modeling of Lanthanum Hexaboride Materials: Interatomic Potentials and Molecular Dynamics
Lanthanum hexaboride is a ceramic with current utilization as a field electron emitter in electron microscopes. Considering that ionic diffusion occurs within this substance while in operation as an electron source, this ...
Mechanical Properties of Porous Magnesium Reinforced with Carbon Nanofiber
This thesis discusses manufacture, mechanical properties and morphologies of porous magnesium. Porous magnesium, a kind of new material, is different from monolithic magnesium due to its properties. Porous magnesium can ...
