Medovar L.B., Saenko V.Ya., Us V.I. and Yarosh V.M. Specifics in designing of bimetal billets for producing reinforcement bars with a corrosion-resistant cladding layer of steel 316L 8
Specifics in designing of bimetal billets intended for rolling reinforcement bars with a corrosion-resistant cladding layer made from low-carbon-austenitic steel of 316L type are considered. Using diagrams of A. Schaeffler, the expected structure of a corrosion-resistant layer of 350 mm diameter bimetal billet, subjected to cladding by a molten metal using the method of electroslag cladding with a liquid metal, depending on thickness of a cladding layer, depth of penetration and chemical composition of a base layer, was estimated.

Structure, properties, technology. Part 1. State-of-the-art and prospects of application of technology of electron beam high-rate evaporation-condensation for producing materials of electric contacts 24
The grounds are given for the selection of composition, structure and technology of producing the composite materials on base of Cu„Mo system using the method of electron beam high-rate evaporation-condensation. The peculiar features of the technological process and equipment for its realization are shown. Results of examination of structure of vapor-phase composite materials on copper and molybdenum base, their properties, comparative data about the behavior of materials of different origin (powdered and condensed) under the conditions of arc discharge action are given. Expediency of selection of vapor-phase composite materials was substantiated as an alternative of cermet materials with account for the experience in the development and application of powdered composite materials as electric contacts.
Zhadkevich M.L., Shapovalov V.A., Torkhov G.F., Yakusha V.V. and Gnizdylo A.N. Drop transfer of metal in plasma-induction growing of tungsten flat single crystals 31
The process of metal transfer was studied in plasma-induction growing of profiled single crystals of tungsten. The effect of speed of plasmatron displacement and diameter of consumable rods on transfer properties was investigated. It is shown that the plasma-induction process of growing tungsten single crystals is characterized at their change in the range investigated by a coarse-drop metal transfer at a mass of transferred drops from 0.71 to 1.35 g on average.
