Abstract:

This report summarizes results of several areas of research dealing with mechanical alloying of materials having potential structural use. The areas involve modeling of the process, synthesis of unique materials via mechanical alloying and consolidation of mechanically alloyed products. The latter area is one receiving most current attention as consolidation involves high temperatures and usually pressures. This can lead to a loss of the unique structures produced by mechanical alloying. Thus, consolidation studies attempt to produce fully dense material maintaining many of the desirable properties manifested by mechanically alloyed powders.
