Description: This lecture offers an example of product development. It imparts knowledge about different ways of casting aluminium and criteria for selecting casting methods; the heat treatment of aluminium; corrosion-proofing and surface treatment of cast alloys used in a saline environment and choice of alloy. It provides insight into how to develop a product using the general specificiations and the interaction between form, material and processing chain and the importance of being thoroughly familiar with the different design materials, their processing possibilities and properties. The lecture is recommended for those situations, where a brief, general background information about aluminium is needed as an introduction of other subject areas of aluminium application technologies. This lecture is part of the self-contained course "Aluminium in Product Development", which is treated under TALAT lectures 2101 and 2102.
