    • 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 ...

      J.W. Yoon, F. Barlat (2013-12-03)
      WITH ADVANCES in computer hardware and software, it is possible to model material processing, product manufacturing, product performance in service, and failure. Although the fine-tuning of product manufacturing and ...
    • Color Metallography 

      George F. Vander Voort (2013-12-03)
      The use of color in metallography has a long history, with color micrographs published over the past eighty-some years. A number of general articles have been published reviewing methods and applications. Natural color is ...
    • Metallurgical Principles 

      Martin Bauser (2013-12-03)
      The extensive use of metals over thousands of years, but in particular during the industrial age, can be attributed to their specific properties. In addition to their good electrical conductivityãassociated with good ...
    • Introduction 

      J. Gilbert Kaufman (2013-12-03)
      The test methods and criteria used to evaluate the fracture characteristics of aluminum alloys are reviewed, and a substantial amount of representative test data for individual lots of aluminum sheet, plate, forgings, ...
    • 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 ...
    • Color Metallography 

      Mario Epler (2013-12-03)
      Precipitation reactions are of great importance in engineering alloys. This general phenomenon occurs in many different alloy systems when one phase transforms into a mixed-phase system as a result of cooling from high ...
    • 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 ...
    • Aluminum Alloy and Temper Designation Systems of the Aluminum Association 

      J. Gilbert Kaufman (2013-12-03)
      It is very useful for secondary fabricators and users of aluminum products and components to have a working knowledge of the Aluminum Association alloy and temper designation systems. The alloy system provides a standard ...
    • Extrusion of Aluminum Alloys 

      W.Z. Misiolek (2013-12-03)

    • Cold Extrusion 

      M. Bhupatiraju and R. Greczanik (2013-12-03)
      COLD EXTRUSION is a push-through compressive forming process with the starting material (billet/slug) at room temperature. During the process, however, the deforming material undergoes deformation heating (conversion of ...
    • Understanding Wrought and Cast Aluminum Alloy Designations 

      J. Gilbert Kaufman (2013-12-03)
