Abstract:
The paper review some recent efforts, made by the aluminum industry, towards the development of new advanced alloys for aerospace applications; unconventional production technologies and MMC occupy an outstanding position in this context. Raid solidification processes are currently used for obtaining advanced alloys and, among them, the powder metallurgy route is one of the most commonly applied, since it has reached a considerable level of maturity.Experimental results of PM materials are shown and discussed in order to appreciate the potentialities of this class of materials and some recent further progress is shown: the spray deposition approach (osprey process). After having described the main features of the osprey process, some results obtained at the Department of Aerospace Engineering of Pisa about the development of high strength Al-alloy and MMC obtained by means of the osprey process are shown.
