2.1 Selecting and Alloy Group

The first task in specifying is to identify the optimum alloy group based on broad general guidelines for factors such as mechanical properties, weight, operating temperature and resistance to corrosion. Table 2-1 gives an overview of the seven most commonly forged alloy groups. The selection of the optimum alloy from the group is often addressed by the concurrent engineering team, because the forging engineer may be able to engineer the forging process to enhance critical material properties such as yield strength, fatigue, impact toughness and fracture toughness.
