This reference provides thorough and in-depth coverage of the latest production and processing technologies encountered in the aluminum alloy industry, discussing current analytical methods for aluminum alloy characterization as well as extractive metallurgy, smelting, master alloy formation, and recycling. The Handbook of Aluminum: Volume 2 examines environmental pollution and toxicity in each stage of aluminum alloy production and metal processing, illustrates microstructure evolution modeling, and describes work hardening, recovery, recrystallization, and grain growth. The authors cover potential applications of various aluminum intermetallics, recent surface modification techniques, and types and causes of aluminum alloy corrosion.
