Abstract

The development of aluminium alloys for powder metallurgy applications is of increasing technological and commercial importance. These materials are expected to replace sintered iron and steel parts in passenger vehicles in order to reduce weight, improve fuel efficiency and reduce manufacturing costs. Whilst aluminium is difficult to sinter and the properties of currently available commercial P/M aluminium parts limit their use in many load bearing components, the properties can be enhanced by the hot forging of a sintered preform. Here, we report on an initial study in which the forging characteristics of a tin modified Al-Cu-Mg-Si alloy were examined using a new testing strategy which incorporates a novel specimen geometry and finite element modelling.
