At this year’s Paris Motor Show, we noticed the rise of the importance of the Color and Trim Designer, sometimes also known as the Color, Material and Finish (CMF) Designer. Here at Allegorithmic we share this passion for materials, so here is an ode to the materials at the 2016 Paris Motor Show.
Resistance spot welding technologies of high strength steel (HSS) sheets were investigated in order to get high reliability in welded-joints of automobile components. Suitable welding current range shifted to lower currant side by the effect of electric resistance increase of steel sheet and the width of this range was affected by electrode force. Vickers hardness […]
A well-established knowledge of the fractographic characteristics of cast alloys is required to perform fracture analysis of failed components and to determine their fracture mechanisms. These analyses contribute to the continuous improvement of the production process and product design. This paper presents typical macrofractographic and microfractographic aspects of fatigue failures of cast aluminum components. As […]
The term â€œheat treatingâ€ for aluminum alloys is frequently restricted to the specific operations employed to increase strength and hardness of the precipitation-hardenable wrought and cast alloys. These usually are referred to as the â€œheat-treatableâ€ allo
