Metalworking: Bulk Forming
Hydrostatic Extrusion of Metals and Alloys
This article begins with a general review of the effects of changes in stress state on processing of materials. It describes the fundamentals of hydrostatic extrusion and reviews the various issues and benefits associated with hydrostatic extrusion. The article discusses the hydrostatic extrusion of structural alloys, composites, brittle materials, and intermetallics or intermetallic compounds, with examples. It concludes with a discussion on the attempts made to extend the hydrostatic extrusion to higher temperatures.
