    • Quantitative Characterization and Representation of Global Microstructural Geometry 

      Arun M. Gokhale (2013-12-03)
      It is the central precept of materials science that processing governs microstructure and the microstructure influences the properties and performance of materials. Consequently, quantitative characterization and mathematical ...
    • Recrystallization of an AlMgSi alloy after different modes of hot deformation 

      Tanja Pettersen; E. Nes (2013-12-03)
      Recrystallization of an AlMgSi alloy has been studied after deformation in torsion and plane strain compression. The main emphasis has been focused on describing the development of nuclei in shear deformed material, and a ...
    • Rotary Forging 

      Unknown author (2013-12-03)
      ROTARY FORGING, or orbital forging, is a two-die forging process that deforms only a small portion of the workpiece at a time in a continuous manner. Unfortunately, the term rotary forging is sometimes used to describe the ...
    • Selecting Aluminum Alloys to Resist Failure by Fracture Mechanisms 

      R.J. Bucci; G. Nordmark; E.A. Starke, Jr. (2013-12-03)
      Though virtually all design and standard specifications require the definition of tensile properties for a material, these data are only partly indicative of mechanical resistance to failure in service. Except for those ...
