This paper describes the impact of low frequency (20?kHz) ultrasound (US) on Cd(II)/Zn cementation implemented on a RDE geometry. With and without US the reaction is mass-transfer controlled with two-step first-order kinetics mainly connected to deposit evolution. US improves the kinetics but to a lower extent than expected from electrochemical Cd(II) reduction. The favourable turbulence enhancement due to the deposit without US is not present when applying US because the deposit is continually removed from the surface. The influence of parameters such as temperature, initial concentration of reactants and US power is also analysed.

    We report estimates of body-centered-cubic titanium’s monocrystal elastic constants C11, C12, and C44. Two constants resulted from measuring a pure-titanium polycrystal at high temperatures using resonant-ultrasound spectroscopy. The third constant resulted from assuming a Zener elastic...

    It is shown that cyclic heating and cooling considerably accelerate kinetics of process of the steel chemical thermal processing. Laws of formation of the strengthened layers are considered at thermocyclic nitrocementation of the steel 20Kh. Production tests of machine parts after the chemical...

    Varistors are produced from ZnO cylindrically-shaped structures whose quality depends on varying technological conditions at stages of their shape forming and firing. Therefore, the varistors are tested at the final phase of production and faulty elements are excluded. We propose to test the...

    We have studied Raman scattering in Co-doped ZnO nanorods prepared by thermal diffusion. Experimental results show that the features of their non-resonant spectra are similar to Raman spectra from Co-doped ZnO materials investigated previously. Under resonant conditions, however, there is a...

    For a limited range of exposure parameters, pulsed high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) has been shown to increase the delivery of certain systemically administered macromolecular diagnostic and therapeutic agents in mice. The mechanism for the enhanced delivery has not been demonstrated...
