Hey, could someone please explain in detail the differences between a wrought alloy, a forged alloy and a cast alloy and give some example applications as to where each type of alloy would be the best.

Thanks :)

Wrought and forged steel, has fiber inside, casting no. Forged is stronger due to presence of metal fiber...you decide to use one despite of the other depending on:
-shape
-dimensions
-mechanical properties

Crankshafts are forged, propellers are forged...pump casing is casted, valve body are casted (not all)
