• Demonstration of the Impact of Thermomagnetic Processing on Cast Aluminum Alloys

    A number of alloys were processed via thermomagnetic processing (TMP) including 242, 355, and Al-8Ce-10Mg alloys. Mechanical property results from cast tensile samples heat treated in ORNL?s 5-inch superconducting magnet system clearly indicate a 10 to 65% increase in yield strength (YS) and 16 to 37% increase in ultimate tensile... more
