Description: This lecture outlines the differences between conventionally produced and powder metallurgy aluminium with respect to potential uses; it aims at learning about the various processes to produce and to consolidate alloy powders; it illustrates the extension of the useful property range beyond that of limits of conventionally processed aluminium alloys; it explains the advantages and disadvantages of aluminium produced by powder metallurgy; it shows the potential of aluminium produced by the route of powder metallurgy. Knowledge in metallurgy, materials science, materials engineering is assumed.
Keywords: advanced materials • powder fabrication • rapid solidification • characterisation • powder • precompaction • cold compaction • sintering • hot consolidation • post consolidation • spray forming • P/M 7xxx alloys • high strength alloys • elevated temperatures • mechanical alloying • high modulus • safety
