Steels - Heat Treatment

  1. 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 :)

  3. 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)
