The development of forged aluminum alloy parts must take into account the characteristics of aluminum alloys, particularly those relating to strength, weight, hardness, and resistance to corrosion. Careful design and testing are required to develop adequate parts with maximum economy.
Many of the successful applications of aluminum alloy forgings in ground vehicles are considered; these include use in high-performance and heavy-duty vehicles and in diesel engine mounts and pistons.
