Four brass wedges were tested. Two were cold rolled to a thickness of 5.0 mm and two were cold rolled to a thickness of 2.5 mm. One wedge of each thickness was then annealed for 1 hour at 350 °C. Because the wedges varied in thickness across the length, multiple cold work values were able to be recorded. Hardness and thickness measurements were taken before and after the cold rolling and after the annealing as shown in Figure 1. Generally, as cold work increased, hardness increased.
It should be noted that the grain size of the material can be varied by heat treatment process. The billets are exposed to heat treatment with different temperatures (5500C and 6500C) and working times to obtain different grain size. The original microstructure of copper and aluminum is shown in Fig. 6 and Fig 7.
A quality set of copper bowls makes a good addition to a kitchen’s food preparation equipment. Properly preparing eggs is an integral part of cooking meals in a home or restaurant. Most chefs need to use eggs in a variety of recipes each day making a copper bowl a highly useful item for a home. Long ago, artisans learned how simple it was to make cooking and eating utensils from copper because it is a malleable metal that is easy to find. There is an abundance of raw copper located in many different places all over the earth, leading to a low-cost metal to make numerous items. Metalworkers have learned fast ways to create items such as bowls in various sizes and designs from copper.
To make the steel stronger and reduce the ductile – brittleness transition temperature composition of the steel should Reduce the amount of sag ( a by-product of smelting) by 2-3%

Wire rod is used in the construction sector and for a host of other product applications such as fencing materials, nails, pins and many other engineering applications. The company has also introduced a number of additional grades of wire-rod with diverse chemical compositions and distinctive physical properties, offering flexibly to cater for different applications. Our coil mill has the shortest rolling program cycle of any major steelmaker in the GCC region, enabling the company to cater for short lead times for its local industrial
Machining operation is done in order to convert the prepared casting in to finished product. Machining process is carried out on lathe to prepare Wear specimens. According to ASTM G99 standards, the specimens with diameter of 8mm and a length of 30mm are prepared which are shown in Fig 4.8. Specimens after reinforcement and machining are as shown in Fig 4.9.
Toughness is the ability of a metal to mutilate plastically and to absorb energy in the process before it breaks or fracture. Metals can be heat treated to alter the properties of strength, ductility, toughness, hardness or resistance to corrosion. This can be done by using heat treatment processes which include precipitation strengthening, quenching, annealing and tempering. Annealing and tempering are the most prominent methods for treating metals. A material may become more or less brittle, harder or softer, or stronger or weaker, depending on the treatment used.
