... means that the deformation is irreversible. Of course, plastic—or permanent—deformation is characteristic of any single-load fracture of a ductile metal. Fractures of ductile metals stressed in pure tension originate near the center of the shaft (provided there is no stress concentration). Toward...

... Abstract The basic concept for most methods of corrosion protection is to remove one or more of the electrochemical cell components so that the pure metal or metal alloy of interest will not corrode. Another widely used corrosion protection approach is to change the nature of the anode so that...

... polishing of pure tin can cause twinning and recrystallization ( Fig. 14 ). The inherent grain size of a metals or alloy is determined by manufacturing process such as casting or metalworking. During steelmaking, for example, grain size is established during the deoxidation of the molten metal. Aluminum...
