Notch Toughness of Some Aluminum Alloy Castings at Cryogenic Temperatures
There are some applications where aluminum alloy castings, because of the ease with which they can be made into relatively complex shapes, would be very desirable for service at cryogenic temperatures. Parts which would require extensive machining from plate or hand forgings and are too intricate for the effective use of die forgings, would be suited ideally for fabrication by casting.
