The Influence of Organic and Inorganic Additives on the Specific Electrical Resistance of Coke

This study aimed to evaluate the effect of both inorganic (boron carbide nanopowders and silicon carbide (carborundum) and organic lean (petroleum coke) additives on the quality of coke produced in a laboratory furnace, as well as on its electrical properties. Analyzing the results of the quality assessment of the obtained coke, it can be argued that the addition of a fixed amount $(0.25-0.5 \ wt.\%)$ of non-caking nanoadditives allows to regulate the process in the plastic state in order to increase the coke strength.

Laser surface modification of materials

To develop any process of laser technology, you need to solve 3 problems: 1) What are the properties of the interaction of laser radiation with matter must be selected to achieve the goal (resonant – non-resonant, absorption-scattering, photo- or thermal absorption, heating, hardening, melting, softening, evaporation, decomposition, coagulation, etc.); 2) What type of laser source should be used to achieve this goal (wavelength, operation mode – continuous or pulse-frequency, power, pulse duration, transverse energy distribution in the beam, coherence
