Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A15-074
Budget: 09/10/15 - 03/08/16

In this effort, ATI will the effects of substituting or replacing all or some of the copper in 7075 with nickel and the addition of nanoparticles on the hot tearing characteristics and mechanical properties of cast material. Thermodynamic modeling will be used to develop 7075 variants and explore the phases that will form when some of all of the...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N151-010
Budget: 06/10/15 - 12/15/15

ATI will develop new nanocomposite aluminum alloys that are castable, weldable, and have properties comparable to Al 7050 T-74. ATI will develop and characterize the master alloys and provide the alloys in the form weld wire and billets to the Applied Research Lab of the Pennsylvania State University for processing. The billets will be melted an...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 11-1-X5.02
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

This program will focus on developing and validating computational models for near-net shape processing of aluminum alloys. Computational models will be developed for deformation modeling and for texture generation. Characterization of two aluminum alloys including flow stress, forgeability, and recrystallization characteristics will provide i...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N102-106
Budget: 05/05/11 - 11/05/11

The approach selected to address the development of High Strength Stress Corrosion Resistant Aluminum Casting Alloys is to use A201 and AA2139 as the base alloy and modify/optimize the composition use thermodynamic modeling . Reducing the susceptibility to hot-tearing will be achieved through the use incorporation of grain refiners such as dispe...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Pennsylvania State University

Agency: Army
Topic: A09A-T010
Budget: 08/31/09 - 02/27/10

This program is to develop multi-layered,light weight armor alloys systems that offer improved fragmentation and armor piercing performance as compared to any other monolithic structures. Such alloys and laminated configuration will be developed by utilizing advanced computational techniques to assist in the development of complimentary alloys ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD09-C03
Budget: 07/21/09 - 01/21/10

Two different approaches will be investigated for producing aluminum alloys with a layer structure that have mechanical properties similar to Al 7050-T7 and Al 7075-T6 and greatly improved corrosion resistance. Layered aluminum alloys will be produced using the Novelis-Fusion casting process. This process is very cost effective and has been d...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD09-C02
Budget: 07/21/09 - 01/21/10

The objective of this program is develop high strength aluminum alloys ( as high strength as that of 7075-T6) that would not require anodization to achieve corrosion resistance. Among the Al alloy systems, only 7xxx and Al-Cu-Li alloy systems are capable of such a high strength level of 7075-T6 properties ( design minimum tensile yield stress...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N08-128
Budget: 09/08/08 - 03/08/09

To develop alternative materials for AL-Be alloys, ATI is going to utilize metal matrix composite technology alloys to match the key physical properties of AlBeMet 162.

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: The Ohio State University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N08-T010
Budget: 07/14/08 - 02/14/09

Aluminum alloys are known to suffer from Stress Corrosion Cracking(SCC). SCC of high strength alloys can proceed rapidly, and can lead to devastating structural failures. However, a solid understanding of combined interactions of metallurgical, environmental and mechanical factors surrounding the crack tip during SCC is still elusive. Therefore...
