  • Publication number: 20190250110
    Abstract: A faulted condition determination method is designed to detect a chromium content and a nickel content in a predetermined boundary region proximate to a boundary between a high-strength ferrite steel and a weld material in a welded joint in which the high-strength ferrite steel and another steel are welded together using the weld material containing nickel and to thereby determine the faulted condition of the predetermined boundary region based on the chromium content and the nickel content. Accordingly, it is possible to appropriately determine the faulted condition of welding of a replacement part in which a high-strength ferrite steel and another steel are welded together using a nickel-based weld material.

  • Publication number: 20190134002
    Abstract: The present invention addresses the problem of providing a novel therapeutic agent for keratoconjunctive disorders. As a means for solving the problem, a therapeutic agent for keratoconjunctive disorders which contains a RAR? agonist as an active ingredient is provided. The therapeutic agent exhibits an excellent ameliorating effect in a keratoconjunctive disorder model, and is therefore useful as a therapeutic agent for keratoconjunctive disorders such as corneal ulcer, corneal epithelial abrasion, keratitis, dry eye, conjunctivitis, chronic superficial keratitis, corneal erosion, persistent corneal disorders, superficial punctate keratopathy, corneal epithelial defects, conjunctival epithelial defects, keratoconjunctivitis sicca, superior limbic keratoconjunctivitis, filamentary keratoconjunctivitis, infectious keratitis, noninfectious keratitis, infectious conjunctivitis and noninfectious conjunctivitis.

  • Publication number: 20180051352
    Abstract: The invention provides a ferritic heat-resistant steel whose creep rupture ductility in a long-term region is improved without detrimental to creep strengths. The ferritic heat-resistant steel has a chemical composition comprising, in % by mass, C: 0.03 to 0.15, Si: 0 to 0.8, Mn: 0.1 to 0.8, Cr: 8.0 to 11.5, Mo: 0.2 to 1.5, (W: 0.4 to 3.0), V: 0.1 to 0.4, Nb: 0.02 to 0.12 N: 0.02 to 0.10 with the balance of iron and inevitable impurities. This steel has a tempered martensite microstructure, and has an improved creep rupture ductility even when there is a load within the elastic limits at temperatures at which the ferritic heat-resistant steel is used, because internal strain or internal stress induced by martensitic transformation is relaxed or released by an intermediate tempering heat treatment in a two-phase state temperature in which a portion of an austenitic phase undergoes martensitic transformation.
