... Abstract Results of failure analyses of two aircraft crankshafts are described. These crankshafts were forged from AMS 6414 (similar composition to AISI 4340) vacuum arc remelted steels with sulfur contents of 0.003% (low sulfur) and 0.0005% (ultra-low sulfur). A grain boundary sulfide...

... of an immiscible polymer blend. A vacuum is often applied to aid in the removal of moisture/volatiles and degradation products. Finally, the degassing operation can be used to dry hygroscopic polymers during the extrusion process. Caution must be used in this case so that the polymer in question does not degrade...
