Solid-state spray forming of aluminum near-net shapes

  title={Solid-state spray forming of aluminum near-net shapes},
  author={H. Landis Gabel and Ralph Tapphorn},
ConclusionsThe next steps in developing SSF will require sufficient funding to produce samples with the suggested refinements and evaluate these samples. The steps include developing a proprietary auxiliary process that renders the annealing step unnecessary and allows for the direct use of the near-net shape in the assprayed condition, investigating specially prepared strengthening phase powders that better match the mechanical impedance of aluminum for producting near-net-shape aluminum MMC…

The osprey process: principles and applications

Spray forming in the Osprey mode involves the sequential stages of atomization and droplet consolidation to produce near-net shape preforms. This review traces the history and development of the

Spray Forming of Metal Matrix Composites

AbstractSpray forming is emerging as a viable technology for the fabrication of discontinuously reinforced metal matrix composites. Advantages of this hybrid powder metallurgy approach reside in near
