Abstract

This Article discusses the applications of high-strength aluminum powder metallurgy (P/M) alloys, detailing the advantages, properties, and the various steps involved in P/M technology, including powder production, powder processing, and degassing and consolidation. Three areas of design efforts to push the inherent advantages of aluminum alloys to new limits are also covered: high ambient-temperature strength with improved corrosion and stress corrosion cracking resistance; improved elevated-temperature properties so aluminum alloys can more effectively compete with titanium alloys; and increased stiffness and/or reduced density for aluminum alloys to compete with organic composites. An appendix provides a detailed account of the properties, processing, and applications of conventionally pressed and sintered aluminum P/M alloys.
