Abstract : The joining of steel and other wear-resistant metals to aluminum alloys was investigated by reviewing the literature, investigating arc welding and diffusion bonding, and evaluating perti nent commercial products. The steel members used in the arc welding and diffusion bonding, and evaluating pertinent commercial products. The steel members used in the arc welding and diffusion investigation had a coating of a silver brazing alloy, zinc, or aluminum. The samples of commercial products consisted of aluminum brazed to steel by proprietary processes and aluminum bonded to steel in sheet, plate, and tube form. Plates of 2024 aluminum alloy overlaid with two metallized coatings and three experimental hardsurfacing aluminum alloys were also evaluated. (Author)
