Abstract : The report describes a Manufacturing Methods Program to evaluate the concept of heating steel and titanium in molten glass and then directly forging. The glass used in this investigation served a two-fold purpose; during heating, it protected the steel from decarburization and scaling and the titanium from contamination; during forging, it served as a lubricant.
