Related to recrystallization: recrystallization temperature

recrystallization,

n the return of a wrought metal to crystalline form because of excessive cold working or excessive application of heat.

recrystallization

in cryosurgery, the conversion of small crystals, produced during the freezing process, to larger ones which are more damaging to cells. Occurs during a slow rewarming phase.

When steel is above the recrystallization temperature, it can be shaped and formed.
It is noteworthy that the dry process for the DSC measurements induces the structural changes in the PVA film, such as recrystallization of the molecular chains dissolved in the solutions.
As shown by previous studies (Lohmann & Meyers 1977), microdolomite inclusions result from the redistribution of Mg ions during recrystallization and therefore the association with microdolomite inclusions suggests that high-Mg calcite, not low-Mg calcite or aragonite, was their original mineralogy, although the lower abundance of microdolomite in Hedstroemia suggests that high-Mg calcite may have formed only an admixture.
To prevent this, PET must be constantly agitated while it is heated through its glass-transition temperature and its solid-state recrystallization.
In addition to mechanical strength being approximately 80% higher than the existing product, whereas the existing product has reduced shear strength due to early recrystallization in high-temperature shelf tests, TALF does not have reduced shear strength because it does not recrystallize due to the recrystallization temperature by 50 degrees Celsius and higher.
2], suggesting that this deformation phase was accompanied by the dissolution and recrystallization of this mineral.
Then he turns to physical metallurgy, looking at the structure of metals and alloys; phase equilibria, diffusion, defects, and properties; and phase transformation, recrystallization, and grain growth.
The diagenetic processes that have affected the Arab-D reservoir include dolomitization, leaching and recrystallization, cementation, compaction and fracturing.
Starting at 2400 degrees, recrystallization effects appear on the surface of the iron samples, leading to dynamic changes of the solid iron's crystalline structure.
In the present paper, the practical application that we often bear in mind is the modeling of phase transformations in general and recrystallization in particular.
Recrystallization of the white solid from fraction PSC in petroleum ether-ethyl acetate 10:3 yielded a white powder compound (1), (3.
1) As generally it is assumed that friction in hot rolling is of sticking type, at first sight this decrease in hot strength with higher strains only can be explained by some metallurgical mechanism, like dynamic recrystallization of austenite, austenite-to-ferrite transformation or temperature increase due to forming work.
