Abstract : The thermal and mechanical treatments employed in the production and fabrication of precipitation-hardenable stainless steels are discussed. Particular emphasis is directed to the interaction of the processing variables and their effects on fabricability and mechanical properties. Equipment and procedures are described as well as problems likely to be encountered and precautions to be observed in processing. Detailed processing information is presented for the precipitation-hardenable stainless steels considered to be applicable for missile and aerospace applications. (Author)
