Although this alloy is used primarily as a wrought alloy
, its cast form would be advantageous for power plant applications.
The panels labeled "Wrought alloy
" and "Structural steel" represent the acceptable variability for conventional mature structural engineering alloys (average [V.sub.r] = 0.08 also summarized in Table 4).
Twenty two per cent Cr duplex pipe corresponding to wrought alloy
composition UNS S31803 has been centrifugally cast and subsequently solution heat treated.
For these reasons, HSM technology is being applied to a large degree in machining light metal castings, thin-walled parts with complex contours, and for integral aluminum wrought alloy
components in the aircraft industry with up to 95% stock removal volume.
Yang, "Effect of temperature on mechanical properties of [Al.sub.0.5]CoCrCuFeNi wrought alloy
," Journal of Alloys and Compounds, vol.
It goes from the addition of titanium to Hastelloy B wrought alloy
in the 1940s through cast alloys to the single crystal materials used today: the graph stops short in the 1990s when nine different elements were added, but there's no thought that the process of materials development has slowed since as higher temperatures produce greater efficiencies in fuel and low emissions.
According to Martin, treated 316L showed no signs of etching after more than 160 hours in the water, and performed on a par with titanium 6-4 and wrought Alloy
Personnel from Rio Tinto Alcan's Arvida Research and Development Centre, Jonquiere, Quebec, Canada, recently conducted an experiment to test the mechanical properties and phase transformation of two wrought alloy
families cast to near-net-shape.
Following the mechanical crushing stage, the mix goes through a size separation process, such as a rotary trommel, which separates smaller cast fragments from the wrought alloys
. The wrought alloy
pieces are then ready for further separation into their alloy families.
Designing a runner to eliminate turbulence in mold filling would allow metalcasters to produce oxide-free, net-shaped castings having the same reliability as forgings and machined wrought alloy
Primarily drawing from the papers presented at the Society of Automotive Engineers 2001-2005 International Congress sessions, Boileau (Materials Research and Advanced Engineering Department, Ford Research and Advanced Engineering) presents 50 papers exploring developments in lightweight aluminum casting and wrought alloy
processes, properties, and technologies in the automotive industry.
* Previously machined from A6061 aluminum wrought alloy
, the component was redesigned for investment casting at a cost savings of $25,000/part.
