Heat Treatment of Aircraft Metals
10111021011119 Heat Treatment of Aircraft MetalsThe heat treatment process alters the physical and chemical properties of the metal by heating and cooling it to achieve the desired physical and mechanical properties. Heat treatment is a controlled process because of the required temperature for different metals, desired length of time, and rate of cooling of the metal after the heat treatment process. The heating and the cooling of metals are performed for a specific purpose because of the microstructures of the materials.The most common reason metals are heat-treated is to increase metal hardness or strength; improve ductility, wear resistance, corrosion resistance, toughness, and im…
