Wrought Aluminum Alloys for General and Special Applications: Part Two

Super plasticity is the property of certain metallic materials that very high elongations without contraction till breakage can be achieved at suitable working conditions. These elongations are from few hundred to 1000% or even more. Such a method of working occurs at low strain rates, high working temperatures, and corresponding microstructure of material. Needed working stresses values are considerably lower than in working ordinary materials. Excellent work abilities enable wide range of applications of super plastic materials for various purposes.
