Engineering Change Notice

28 MCAD

Mechanical Computer Aided Design

29 Abrasion

A process in which friction causes rubbing, grinding, or wearing away 

30 Acid Steel

A substance formed as a result of melting steel with high amounts of acidic substances such as silica.

31 Activation

The transformation of a metal's passive nature into a chemically active substance.

32 Aging

The  gradual change in internal properties of metals/alloys with respect to room temperature.

33 Air – Hardening Steel

It is the process in which carbon in steel causes a change in temperature leading to complete hardening of alloy (consisting the steel) when cooled in air.

34 Alclad

An Aluminium sheet produced by placing layers of pure/corrosion-resistant metal over base metal of high-strength.

35 Alloy Steel

Steel consisting of significant amounts of alloys like manganese, silicon, sulphur, and phosphorus.

36 Aluminizing

The process of forming elements or compounds of Aluminium by dipping, spraying, or diffusion at high temperatures.

37 Annealing

The process of heating and cooling down consecutively thereby toughening the metal.

38 Atomic-Hydrogen Welding

Welding of metals in hydrogen atmosphere between tungsten arcs.

39 Austempering

Alteration of physical/chemical properties of ferrous metals by heat treament.

40 Austenite

It is a solid solution found in the carbon portions of non-magnetic iron.

41 Austenitizing

The process of forming austenite by heating ferrous alloy.

42 Bainite

It is the gross product of ferrite and carbide formed by the decomposition of austenite and carbide.

43 Banded Structure

Thin, lateral layers of metal bands produced when hot piece of the metal is run through roller mills to reduce it's thickness to form banded structures

44 Bark

The layer formed when steel is heated in an oxidizing atmosphere.

45 Basic Steel

Basic form of steel produced by melting base metal substances like magnesia or lime.

46 Bearing Load

The load or weight that is supported by a structure like shaft or housing.

47 Bearing Strength

The maximum capacity of a material to bear load/weight.

48 Bend Test

A test to determine the limit until which a  solid material can stretch under tensile stress

49 Bent Radius

The radius on the inner side of a bent section

50 Bessemer Process

The process of removing impure substances from iron by oxidation

51 Billet

It is a piece of metal produced by casting/extrusion/hot rolling processes. The area of this solid, semi-finished metal has it's area less than 230 centimeter-square.

52 Blister

The defect formed by excessive internal expansion of gaseous substances in metals 

53 Bloom

A piece of metal formed by continuous casting processes in a blooming mill. It i ssemi-finished, square/rectangular in form and has its properties between ingots and billets.

54 Blue Annealing

Process of heating and cooling down of ferrous sheet consecutively in an open furnace resulting in a Bluish oxide on the surface
