technical comparison between rheo and thixo achievable properties

The same component (a fitting hook of an aircraft cargo door locking system)has been studied during the previous ADFORM project, with thixocasting process, and the current RHEO-LIGHT project, with rheocasting process. In both cases, the microstructure, the mechanical characteritics (static, fatigue, damage tolerance)and the corrosion properties have been studied, making a direct comparison possible.
