The New Super Steel That Defies Convention

super steel

Steel may be a common alloy but what happens when researchers attempt to turn it into super steel?

Developing ultra-high-strength alloys is a challenging task as it often ends up exposing weaknesses in other areas. Creating super steel requires a fine balance between all the different properties and a breakthrough has emerged, defying convention.

Deep Hole Drilling Applications

deep hole drilling

Deep hole drilling (DHD) is a residual stress measurement technique that is used across various sectors to measure locked-in and applied stresses. It’s often referred to as gun drilling, a prominent method in engineering materials and components. The process involves specialised equipment and knowledge to maintain the straightness and tight tolerances required for some components.

Mechanical Engineering Concepts And Terminology

mechanical engineering

Mechanical engineering is one of the oldest and broadest disciplines that combines engineering physics and mathematical principles with materials science. It involves the design, analysis, manufacture and maintenance of mechanical systems.

The fundamentals of mechanical engineering go back thousands of years, emerging as a field during the Industrial Revolution in Europe. It continued to evolve and, today, mechanical engineers are involved in areas such as composites, mechatronics, and nanotechnology.

Precision Engineering And The Aerospace Sector

precision engineering

The aerospace sector wouldn’t exist today without outsourced, precision engineering services and components. While the majority of land vehicles are designed, constructed and tested in-house, the same does not apply to most aircraft.

Considering the number and diversity of aeroplane, spacecraft, satellite and helicopter components, aerospace engineering relies heavily on production chains and outsourced projects. It’s a complex process as each part or component must be designed and built to fit in with the overall plan.
