      The main goal of the present work is to study the influence of the microstructure on the corrosion behavior of cemented carbides WC-Co in two corrosive media. Corrosion kinetics were determined by immersion tests while the ...
    • Scale effect in mechanical characterization of WC-Co composites 

      Sandoval Ravotti, Daniela Andreina; Rinaldi, Antonio; Tarragó, José María; Roa Rovira, Joan Josep; Fair, Jonathan; Llanes Pitarch, Luis Miguel (2018-04-01)
      Open Access
      © 2017 Elsevier LtdThe study of mechanical response of materials at small length scales has gained importance due to the recent advances in micro- and nano-fabrication as well as testing systems. However, most of the ...
    • Toughening and fatigue micromechanisms in hardmetals: FESEM/FIB tomography characterization
