A muscle automobile symbolizes freedom. It was once freedom that introduced the muscle motor vehicle into life ─ the liberty of inexpensive fuel and open roads, the liberty provided by way of the postwar American dream, the liberty to move with regards to at any place and do exactly approximately whatever. while Pontiac advertised its GTO to the baby-boom new release, the automobiles, the folk who drove them, and the days during which the 2 got here jointly resulted in one of many maximum tales in car historical past.

An innovative process which uses a high-intensity infrared (IR) heat source to fuse wear-enhancing additives into a surface in a matter of seconds is being developed in another OAAT project to produce uniform wear-resistant coatings for aluminum engine block cylinder bores. During fiscal year 1999, material compositions which are most likely to provide wear resistance, factional behavior, compatibility with engine lubricants, and manufacturability will be selected based on discussions between automotive industry materials engineers and senior tribology and infrared processing staff at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
Improved control of the forming process will expand the operating "window" of acceptable process parameters, making it more robust, reducing production problems, reducing process development time, and improving quality. A parallel activity is aimed at evaluating the economic and functional improvements in forming aluminum at elevated temperatures. Properly designed and implemented warm forming techniques have the potential to improve both the intrinsic and extrinsic formability of aluminum, permit aluminum to be substituted for many steel body components with rather minor modifications of the tooling, and increase the ability of the materials to produce more complex shapes.
Phase I will establish promising alloys for detailed evaluation and optimization, and demonstrate/justify commercialization potential based on creep, castability and cost. In Phase II, promising alloy families will be optimized and evaluated in detail (including corrosion and recyclability). Die-cast components will be produced from optimized alloys by suppliers and evaluated. Phase III will result in an alloy that meets stated objectives and prototype automotive components that meet automotive targets.
