"Because of the possible commercial application of the proposed treatment of 70-30 brass, this work was undertaken. In addition, the data resulting from this work will result in a better understanding of the treatment of brass.
The objectives of this work were as follows:
- Determine if higher strength and better spring properties can be realized from a process for commercial 70-30 cartridge brass wherein the regular recrystallizing anneals between rolling reductions are replaced by stress relief anneals.
- Determine if it is possible, using the above process, to produce essentially fully recrystallized metal with an average grain size below that usually obtained by commercial processing.
- Determine whether the commercially desirable combination of mechanical properties of a partially recrystallized structure can be realized"--Introduction, pages 3-4.
