Continuous Severe Plastic Deformation

The use of ultrafine grained material is very attractive as machining, forging or extrusion stock. Its improved strength and ductility properties influence both manufacture- and service-related properties. Full-scale industrial implementation of this technology will substantially expand the use of aluminum forgings and extrusions.

Exploring Ultrahigh Magnetic Field Processing of Materials for Developing Customized Microstructures and Enhanced Performance

Dr. Gerard M. Ludtka, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, March 2005. Initial results from forming in a magnetic field have shown promising results such as a reduction in forming temperature, increased rate of recrystalization, and an increase in strength levels in the final part. This report details some of the benefits of forming in a magnetic field.
