Writing Technical Reports that Communicate

1968-02-01
680195
The function of all technical reporting can be stated in a single word -- communication. A technical report fails in its purpose precisely in the degree that it fails to communicate. It is very important that engineers, scientists, and technicians know how to write clear, concise and understandable reports -- reports that communicate! The individual who develops this ability will benefit himself, his company, and his profession. This paper shows some of the important steps that lead to writing technical reports that communicate.

Wrought Aluminum Metallurgy

Anytime
There are a wide variety of wrought aluminum alloys, each developed to provide specific properties. Getting the strength you need in an aluminum alloy requires knowledge of the effects of alloy composition, cold-working, and heat treating on aluminum metallurgy and properties. A good understanding of how aluminum alloys behave and what can be done to modify their properties is critical for being more productive and profitable. The course takes about one hour to complete and consists of one module and a final exam. Also, quizzes and problems give you opportunities to apply the concepts taught.

Wrought Magnesium Alloys and Manufacturing Processes for Automotive Applications

2005-04-11
2005-01-0734
In this paper, the mechanical properties, structural performance and mass saving potential of wrought magnesium alloys are compared to several major automotive materials: mild steel, advanced high-strength steel, cast and wrought aluminum, cast magnesium, plastics and fiber-reinforced composites. Manufacturing processes including welding and joining of magnesium extrusions and sheet products are critically reviewed. The current and potential applications of wrought magnesium alloys in automotive interior, body and chassis areas are discussed. Technical challenges and research opportunities for these applications are identified.

Wrought Magnesium Components for Automotive Chassis Applications

2011-04-12
2011-01-0077
Automotive structural components are exposed to high loads, impact situations and corrosion. In addition, there may be temperature excursions that introduce creep as well as reduced modulus (stiffness). These issues have limited the use of light metals in automotive structural applications primarily to aluminum alloys, and primarily to cast wheels and knuckles (only a few of which are forged), cast brake calipers, and cast control arms. This paper reports on research performed at Chongqing University, Chongqing China, under the auspices of General Motors engineering and directed by the first author, to develop a protocol that uses wrought magnesium in control arms. The goal was to produce a chassis part that could provide the same engineering function as current cast aluminum applications; and since magnesium is 33% less dense than aluminum, would be lighter.

J470C_197607
This Report presents general information on over 50 alloys in which nickel either predominates or is a significant alloying element. It covers primarily wrought materials, and is not necessarily all inclusive. Values given are in most cases average or nominal, and if more precise values are required the producer(s) should be contacted. This report does not cover the so-called 'superalloys,' or the iron base stainless steels. Refer to SAE J467, Special Purpose Alloys, and SAE J405, Chemical Compositions of SAE Wrought Stainless Steels, respectively, for data on these alloys.

Factors influencing the uses of wrought copper and copper alloys concern electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, machinability, formability, fatigue characteristics, strength, corrosion resistance, the ease with which alloys can be joined, and the fact that these materials are nonmagnetic. Copper and its alloy also have a wide range of rich, pleasing colors. The only other metal with such distinctive coloring is gold. These materials are all easily finished by buffing, scratch brushing, plating or chemically coloring, or clear protective coating systems. When it is desired to improve one or more of the important properties of copper, alloying often solves the problem. A wide range of alloys, therefore, has been developed and commercially employed, such as the high copper alloys, brasses, leaded brasses, tin bronzes, heat treatable alloys, copper-nickel alloys, nickel silvers, and special bronzes. nickel silvers, and special bronzes.

X-15 Research Vehicle Auxiliary Power System

The auxiliary power system of the X-15 airplane represents a uniqueness in its application. It must operate continuously in flight, in a space environment, during zero gravity, during reentry heating, and for a period of time which often exceeds the X-15 rocket engine operation by 1400 sec. The X-15 auxiliary power system must provide both hydraulic and closely regulated 400-cycle electrical power for operation of various X-15 systems. This paper describes the system, its functions, and its major components. A brief introduction to an X-15 research mission is included to illustrate the integration requirements of the auxiliary power system to the X-15 and the research system.

X-15: Past and Future

The X-15 is a high-performance, manned research vehicle. The 125 flights made since 1959 have provided valuable research data on hypersonic aerodynamics, aerodynamic and structural heating, the behavior of certain types of structure under aerodynamic heating, and the ability of the man-machine combination to perform assigned tasks. It is planned to extend this work to greater speeds and to continue to use the vehicle as a test bed to lift various scientific experiments into the high-speed flight or near-space environment and return them to the scientists. This capability is almost entirely unique to the X-15.
