the properties of ADI/Conclusions

Excellent possibilities - opening up new perspectives to all designers:

the correct material selection will result in:
  • high strength levels
  • concurrent ductility
  • high fatigue resistance
  • high durability
  • improved sound dampening
  • greater freedom of design
  • accuracy when machining to final dimensions
  • lower prices than normal ductile and case-hardened steel with similar and better properties!
physical properties:
  • high values for static and dynamic strengh
  • ductility
  • high hardening
  • low notch sensitivity
  • high fatigue resistance due to cold work-hardening
  • choice of geonetrical design forms
  • good sound dampening properties
  • good machinability
