Materials and Processes

Plain steel was one of the earlier and most popular metals used for the construction of aircraft: Steel is a ferrous metal.
Plain steel, identified as medium-carbon steel would be written as SAE 1030, SAE stands for society of automotive engineers, what does the 30 stand for in SAE 1030? Thirty hundredths of one percent carbon.
What is tensile strength? The ability to withstand tension.
The amount of stress needed to cause a metal to deform is called? Yield strength.
What is shear strength? The ability of metal to withstand being cut cross-sectionally in half.
When molecules inside metal are heated: They want to move away from each other.
A non-ferrous metal is: A metal, which has elements other then iron as its base.
The ability of a sheet of metal to return to its original position after normal stretching and bending is called what? Elasticity.
