CWF HT 2+ nested structures and interfaces/boundaries

2 Comment Uncategorized

The published cwf ht procedure is a good starting/prototyping point. Changes in energy(via temperature) state are operators, where driving forces define texture and scope. COG (Combinatorial Optimization Graph) 3rd goal – the resulting graph has low thermal expansion coefficient, especially within operation condition. Basically, saying – we want a working […]

HRC CWF vs Conventional HT – aebl aust 1960F, 20 minutes soak

Applicability of edge geometry: 0.015″BET/15dps Conventional 63rc has very low impact toughness and rapid loss of apex radius below 400nm. CWF HT 64rc supports moderate-to-working impact toughness and sustain apex radius below 200nm. CWF HT aging 63.5rc low impact toughness – sub par compare to cwf ht 64rc 1F/minute. 1.5F/minute […]

CWF – barely started

Started with 2 layer of nested crystal structures, how many layers can we weave/build? More than two layers seem like a natural/infer progression. Visual confirmation of each additional layer will be challenging because of each subsequent layer will be smaller than outer layer/shell. Clever/creative/innovative ht nesting cycles could build deeper […]

Crystal Weaving Foundation – ‘How’ and a little bit of ‘Why’

No Comments Uncategorized

Its conceptual goal is to build a strong & tough solid using identical shape small building unit. Between units & group of units – interconnection, gap and vacancies determine strength & toughness of the result solid. I use Combinatorial Optimization Graph to distilled 2 optimization goals: * Maximize interconnectivity between […]

My plan to shoot 2 videos releasing CWF info got delayed by a nasty cold – lost voice. Up & about, I shot a 95 seconds no-talk video. Conventional hardened D2 known to be brittle. At 67rc should be like glass. At below transition temperature, this blade should behave like […]
