3. SLIVER DEFECTS ON LOW CARBON STEELS, COLD ROLLED STRIPS / Dumitrescu Alexandru Traian, Catangiu Adrian, pp.14-18.

Abstract. One definition of slivers could be: defects in the nature of irregularly shaped pieces of steel clinging loosely to finished steel. Slivers may result from defective composition (over-oxidized, high sulfur); defective teeming of molten steel; defective heating (burning); tearing of corners in early stages of rolling; etc. So, from the definition is obvious that the origin of slivers could be in different stages of steel flow route but, the main source of slivers is related to nonmetallic inclusions formed and entrapped on the subsurface of continuous cast slabs, as are FeO and Al 2 O 3 . These inclusions are generated by mould slag entrapment on solidifying shell, re-oxidation during continuous casting by air, refractory materials, ladle slag, etc.The present paper contains metallographic analysis of areas connected to slivers from 5 cold rolled coils of strips with thickness varying between 1.8mm to 4.1mm and the carbon content from 0.04% to 0.188% and in all analyzed areas have been observed only FeO inclusions related to slivers defects, inclusions formed during continuous slab casting process.

7. THE HYDRATION OF SUPER ALUMINOUS CEMENT AND THE MECHANICAL STRENGTH DEVELOPMENT / Cristina Stancu, Nicolae Angelescu, Vasile Bratu, pp.33-38.

Abstract. The use of super aluminous cement based on mineralogical compounds whose refractoriness is high as possible, is economically and technologically desirable. However, with increasing of the alumina content in the composition of mineralogical compounds from the aluminous cements, their reactivity towards water decreases. Therefore, this paper aims to monitoring the evolution in time of development the mechanical strength of aluminous cement based on mineralogical compounds with highly refractoriness properties: CA, CA 2 and CA 6 at ambient temperature. For this we will monitor the evolution in time of the anhydrous mineralogical compounds hydration and their transformations from metastable forms into stable forms using X-ray diffraction and their influences on the development of mechanical strength.

Abstract. Benzoic acid from four natural juices was investigated in this paper. The identification of benzoic acid was achieved with FTIR using ATR technique. A high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with photodiode array detection (PDA) method was developed for determination of benzoic acid. The highest concentration of benzoic acid was found in orange juice in the range of 71 mg·L -1 . Precision, linearity, sensitivity (limit of detection and limit of quantitation) and uncertainty were established. The obtained results suggested that ATR and HPLC are suitable methods for the identification and quantification of benzoic acid in natural juices.

9. CONSIDERATIONS ON SIZING THE PREHEATERS OF THE FURNACES/ Dumitru Stroescu, Gaba Aurel, pp. 42-48.

Abstract . Recovering the exhaust heat from metal industry's furnaces is realized, in general, by preheating the combustion air. Thus, the exhaust gases are discharged through the chimney with lower temperatures and lower energy content. When in the gases exhausted from the furnaces, the sulphur oxides are found, at lower temperatures, the low temperature corrosion occurs affecting the air pre-heaters. It is therefore important to size the air pre-heaters so as to avoid the low temperature corrosion. For sizing the air pre-heaters, a computer program is used, by which the recovery solution to avoid the low temperature corrosion can be established. Such constructive solution, together with the experimental results obtained during the operation, is illustrated.

Abstract. Heavy metals pollution has become a topical issue caused by excessive industrialization at present human activities with a large number of sources of pollution with these compounds. The high toxicity of chromium and its compounds caused important measures to prevent pollution with them, fixing rules governing maximum permissible concentrations or recommended for chromium in drinking water, food, sewage to be discharged into sewers or emissaries from natural air, soil. CMA (maximum permissible concentration) for total chromium varies from 1.5 mg/dm 3 to water according to SR ISO 9174: 1998, and hexavalent chromium concentration is 0.2 mg/dm 3 according to SR EN 1998: 11083. CMA for chromium in soil is 100 mg/kg. In biological terms, hexavalent chromium is classified in risk group 1 carcinogen and is known as a powerful lung carcinogen. This has sparked the interest of researchers on the heavy metal, with numerous studies of characterization and its recovery of affected environments. Several issues related to the adverse effects of chromium, hexavalent and human health in particular, and some preliminary results for its adsorption on the surface of magnetite, are presented in this paper.

4. STANDARD TESSELLATION LANGUAGE IN RAPID PROTOTYPING TECHNOLOGY/ Ciobota Nastase-Dan, pp. 81- 85.

Abstract. The growth of solid freeform fabrication ( SFF ) or layered manufacturing (LM) in biomedical applications has created the need for better technology in terms of model representation, accuracy and functionality. SFF models in medicine have been used mainly for assisting diagnosis, surgical planning, and manufacture of orthopedic implants. However, the technology has recently seen applications in the field of tissue engineering specifically in the fabrication of tissue scaffold structures. Traditionally, LM process involves the conversion of the 3D models into STereo-Lithography (. STL ) format, a tessellation procedure where the model is approximated by triangles, sliced and then fabricated by the machine. The procedure worked well in the manufacturing industry which used RP to evaluate product designs and aesthetics by producing actual prototypes of the proposed design.

Abstract. The objective of this study is to make a comparison of surface roughness for various types of contact lenses (CLs), generated by the manufacturing process and to determine the roughness parameters of 3D surface using atomic force microscopy (AFM). Contact lenses commercially available from two manufacturers: Johnson & Johnson Vision Care (Jacksonville, USA) and CIBA Vision Corp. (Grosswallstadt, Germany) were investigated. Two lenses from each of the four contact lenses groups, manufactured by cast-moulding, were used in experiments. For imaging surface roughness of contact lenses on nanometer scale, we employed atomic force microscopy in tapping mode in an aqueous environment. Three parameters obtained by atomic force microscopy (Sa, Sq and St) were used in evaluation of contact lenses surface roughness. A comparison of surface roughness for the probed contact lenses was made. The surface roughness have a considerable influence on biocompatibility and generates important information about the material surface quality. The results obtained in this study may assist researchers in developing and prescribing contact lenses with optimal performance characteristics.

Abstract. The aim of this study was to evaluate the surface roughness of intraocular lenses (IOLs) generated by the manufacturing process and to determine the roughness parameters of 3D surface using atomic force microscopy (AFM). Intraocular lenses commercially available from a single manufacturer: Pharmacia & Upjohn Co. were investigated. Three intraocular lenses, model 911A CeeOn Edge ® , were analyzed on different areas of the posterior optic surface. For imaging surface roughness of intraocular lenses on nanometer scale we employed atomic force microscopy in contact mode with ambient air. Three parameters obtained by atomic force microscopy (Sa, Sq and Sz) were used in evaluation of intraocular lenses surface roughness. The parameters of surface roughness are an auxiliary index of biocompatibility and generates useful information about the material surface quality. The information generated in study may assist researchers in choosing, designing and manufacturing of intraocular lenses with optimal performance characteristics.
