Iron ranks first of all the metals; copper, lead and zinc come fairly close together in tonnage; tin ranks next; and aluminum is fifth of the non-ferrous metals. The place of aluminum in the automotive industry is shown in a diagram and another brings out the production of copper and aluminum, both receiving comment.
The metallography of aluminum alloys is discussed in some detail, as well as the phenomena of growth and aging, charts and photomicrographs being shown and commented upon. The effect of alloying on physical properties is treated in a similar manner in considerable detail and a comparison of aluminum with other metals follows. Forging alloys are described and some miscellaneous aluminum-alloy forged parts are pictured. The advantages of forging alloys are enumerated and many of their present uses specified; other contemplated uses for the newest alloy are for cast disc-wheels for passenger cars, differential carriers and cast rear-axle housings.
