“Back at the birth of the jet engine, Sir Frank Whittle’s prototypes were made entirely of steel,” said Rolls-Royce chief  of materials Neil Glover. “Steel is great for strength and surface hardness, but if you need high-temperature performance it isn’t actually very good; 450–500°C is about its limit.” Its unsuitability led to a search for a more temperature-resistant material, and jet makers turned to nickel alloys. Relatively abundant, with large deposits in Continue Reading

University of Cincinnati researchers have partnered with Airbus to develop metals that are more durable and less sensitive to corrosion, for aircraft components and structures. The team is using a laser shock peening (LSP) process that shoots infrared light beams on to pieces of metal to alter its physical, mechanical and environmental properties, while increasing its longevity. Airbus Americas research and technology director David Hills said: “If we can improve the properties of our aluminium components and reduce their degradation with time, we can extend both the reliability and life of the aircraft.”

 “We will fortify huge pieces of metal for use in prototypes and, eventually, mass production.”

The laser deeply compresses and modifies the structure of the metal thereby fortifying it, Continue Reading
