Meeting 2016 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition
Symposium Bladesmithing Symposium 2016
Presentation Title Forging and evaluation of non-ferrous blades
Author(s) Benjamin White, William Story
On-Site Speaker (Planned) Benjamin White
Abstract Scope William Story, Benjamin White, The University of Alabama Blade material: AA7075/AA2024/AA6061 (forged from wrought material OR cold spray deposited material) OR Stellite 6k, Stellite 98M2 OR wrought titanium OR bronze,brass. In the past blades have been made out of steel almost exclusively due to its high strength, high hardness, and low cost. In this study we will examine the mechanical properties of various non-ferrous blade materials with and without post-forging processing such as anodization and cold-spray deposited ceramics and compare it to 1095 steel. Once a suitable material has been selected, a blade will be forged from the selected material.
